Track Name: Control
Listen up baby cause I need you to hear The way I still feel and the things that I know I just don't care if your with someone else At least now I know and its not done behind my back I've come a long way that you just wont see Its gonna take a long time till they bury me when I get down I put some music on And sing along with people who have been through this all before I am in control I am in control Is it so bad I am relieved I'm the only one who takes care of me I wont need no one hanging around Until I feel some pressure lifted up off my back In a few years when this cools down Ill see you with your children in a shopping mall town I wont regret the places that I'm at No one can be certain of the way life their life might turn out I am in control I am in control One thing is certain that we both know You used me as a cushion And never gave me any hope Please step back and separate The things that you believe in and those that don't make sense at all I am in control I am in control I am in control I am in control
Track Name: I Got A Knife
You didn't kill me when you had the chance. An unfortunate circumstance Now its time to show you things that make me smile at night One of these days you'll be walking home at night One of these days cold chills running down your spine Or maybe its cold steel gonna rip you ear to ear I got a knife I got a knife in the dark for you I got a knife I got a knife its been waiting here for you You cant escape your death is drawing near You made the mess and now ill clean it up Ive been waiting for so long just to look you in the eyes I can see you decorating for the time of year I can see you getting dressed in your bedroom mirror Get ready for cold steal as it rips you ear to ear I got a knife I got a knife in the dark for you I got a knife I got a knife its been waiting here for you Scream out your voice ill save Make it loud your screams keep me feeling ok Scream out your voice ill save Make it loud your screams keep me feeling ok. I got a knife I got a knife in the dark for you I got a knife I got a knife its been waiting here for you Run for your life Run for your life cause I'm coming after you I got a knife I got a knife in the dark for you
Track Name: Clip My Wings
I only go out at night dreaming fantasizing in the morning I have no friends they all have grown I will never know what I look like Because I live in nightmares where love bleeds red, living my life as the undead.Fantasizing dreaming about you Patiently awaiting your arrival A gentleman I greet you at the door Later on you will be on my floor Because I live in nightmares where love bleeds red, living my life as the undead.And I could never eat you, you are my wings so I will wait.And I live forever, and so will you right by my side Because I live in nightmares where love bleeds red, living my life as the undead.And I could never eat you, you are my wings so I will wait.And I live forever, and so will you right by my side.No cross could ever tame me, but still you run and I remain...living my life as the undead.

Track Name: Guidelines
Dreams do not last When they can be bought and sold And all we ever hear about is how to meet the maker Tearing you apart before it ever reaches paper New thoughts set fire to the old I refuse to let these kids pollute their minds We must break this mind control What is the price?When we make formulas and guides And maybe life is safer when you life in such restriction Tearing me apart because of all this contradiction New thoughts set fire to the old I refuse to let these kids pollute their minds We must break this mind control No we wont back down I refuse to let these kids pollute their minds We must break this mind control I refuse to let these kids pollute their minds We must break this mind control Mind Control No we wont back down

Track Name: Two Sides
Had time to think, when time ran out A little boy with emotion and a big mouth Fine time to break his vision innocence No more lies secrets kept close and tight They don't want you to know Why your dad had to go You just don't die at 432 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own Had time to think, when time ran out A little boy with emotion and a big mouth Fine time to break his vision innocence No more lies secrets kept close and tight Big house its walls are closing in A bigger boy with emotions and anxiety Nothing to do fucked up all day Far from fine, solace in 3 chord songs They don't want you to know Why your dad had to go You just don't die at 432 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides where am I2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I? Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own 2 Sides they always seem to fight, but the question is where am I?Now the boy has grown with a mind made on his own
Track Name: Watch It Bleed
Watch it bleed in the real Here lies Count Dracula Dead on the back of his tomb So Drac how's it feel A black cross through the heart Blood turned myth into truth Watch it bleed Watch it bleed Watch the count my enemy watch it bleed watch it bleed Watch him move Watch me bleed Watch him fly away from me he's running free watch me bleed.
Track Name: Convictions
Look back fall down, another one for the boring users It's now and its big, last chance for a fading ego My place is where I want it Future unsure of I think from the inside and not from anyone Integrity's the mark of any good man I believe in what I am because its real Convictions generating normal fears And no one's safe with one Set up knock down playing with defective pieces And now war time, who will stand when the battles over No one really gets it a ticket to the exit Breaking off attachments far from everyone Penalties, I'm screaming what I say When the smoke has cleared I'm still just lost at sea Convictions generating normal fears And no one's safe with one Convictions generating normal fears And no one's safe with one Behind the scenes making money on dreams I won't go I look in the mirror and I don't see me no more These convictions are killing me Convictions generating normal fears And no one's safe with one Convictions generating normal fears And no one's safe with one
Track Name: Hard As Fuck (Unreleased Bonus)

Hard as Fuck I'd watch your fucking back Hard as Fuck This aint no fucking act Hard as Fuck This aint a warning its a fucking fact You know I used to be a no good son of a bitch you know I used to be We walk the streets at night screaming how hard are we
Track Name: Choke (unreleased bonus)
Baby my heart got crowded today Still thinking of you what more can I say If we move on…I bring a piece of it Can't wait too long I know you wont be back Shake off the blues, and get some color fast This time I cant lose Something that I never had I'm killing the boy, but not becoming a man Sometimes I choke, and this is where I stand…It has to be Count the mistakes, how much do I pay?Losing the crowd from living this way When the music's gone I've got no one Playing it back cause we had fun If we move on…I bring a piece of it Can't wait too long I know you wont be back Shake off the blues, and get some color fast This time I cant lose Something that I never had I'm killing the boy, but not becoming a man Sometimes I choke, and this is where I stand…It has to be Do you remember coming over for the first time?When all the world gave us a pardon from its lies?Do you remember the spot that held you into me? I know the answer I can see it in your eyes Do you remember the shows we watched when you were mine?Movies and pictures in spite of them I'm doing fine Do you remember the clothes you wore, the music scene?This time I cant lose.Something that I never had I'm killing the boy, but not becoming a man Sometimes I choke, and this is where I stand…It has to be…
Track Name: Dark To Light (Unreleased Bonus)
Moving from Dark to light, holding me oh so tight progressing out as you move in With so much left to do Cant have me stuck on you don't speak don't act just let it in Darkness becomes light even when we feel no hope left in our lives Look inside it starts with you Consuming heavily To lose these memories Turn on the T.V. I cant watch Time takes us far away Feeling much better today In a world where people come and go Darkness becomes light even when we feel no hope left in our lives Look inside it starts with you I live with this anger Whoa oh oh Cause someday you'll see me as just a stranger Whoa oh oh Darkness becomes light even when we feel no hope left in our lives Look inside it starts with you so get out and fight hold on the feeling We can be alright, cause Darkness becomes light
