Track Name: The First Piece in the Puzzle
(instrumental piece)
Track Name: Mirror Mirror
Have you felt that nothing was real
And in all of this you didn't belong
When you look at all that surrounds you
Everything seems so wrong

Have you been sad when you should be happy
Been afraid when you should stand strong
You're so sure you heard the distant sound of thunder
But above is blue skies, there's no clouds at all

Mirror Mirror never lies
all your flaws as seen by glassy eyes
Mirror Mirror always sees
all the secrets that lie between you and me
Track Name: Temple of Lost Souls
Mountain high valley deep got to run cant keep losing sleep if I wanna make it out alive
I need to drive I need to strive to get the job, excel, be above the line, do better than just survive

Like a dream she came into my scene and took my breath away...

on a guiding light, our heart take flight and lead us into eternity
hand in hand, gland in gland we make the final leap
as the moments flash by we walk down the aisle

In my time of dying, the hate stains my soul
you drain my veins of ambition
you did everything you could, you plunged the knife deep in my heart
what have you done for me??
what have you done to me??


here I sit alone staring at the glass
life fading reflected mistakes of my past
the price of freedom I wont ever be able to face
last day of prison was my baby boy's dying day
what a price to pay
such a price to pay
I'll never live down that day



look up, dont look down
remember this face, never let it frown
you've seen the high and you've seen the down
we're on the upward track dont forget that now
your troubles are in the past
dont let the memories of those times last
just look into the mirror and I'll be there
I'll keep you safe cause I still care

when you're down just look into these eyes
they're the eyes of the great deceiver
you're never alone cause I'll be there for you

all those troubles are in the past
the memories will fade away trust me
just look to me, look inside yourself
we're the only ones who love you, yea yea!

when you're down just look into these eyes
they're the eyes of the great deceiver
you're never alone cause I'll be there for you

Track Name: in the shadows
In the shadows, underneath your bed,
inside your closet, playing the fears inside your head...
Track Name: The Only One
Here I stand arms outstretched, laid bare open, vulnerable to you
There you stand defiantly, waiting for the world to fall on me

There's no reason for you to doubt me,
I'd give my life so I could catch you
I'm just hoping you will chance me,
And my chains of hope ensnare you

You are my only one, you are my destiny, you're the one to set me free
You are the sun above, shining down so heavenly,
Your smile brings such warmth to me

There you fly so high above, beauty bringing peace you are my dove
Here I stand so far below my eyes filled with tears you'll never know

There's no reason for you to doubt me,
I'd give my life so I could catch you
I'm just hoping you will chance me,
And my chains of hope ensnare you

You are my only one, you are my destiny, you're the one to set me free
You are the sun above, shining down so heavenly,
Your smile brings such warmth to me
Track Name: Mesmerize
n/a
Track Name: Adagio in A minor
Take a look into the mirror, a look into my eyes
Take a moment to consider the source of all the lies
Take a pill for anxiety, a pill for ADHD
Another pill for Enlightenment, another for ED

A calm descends, a curtain inside my head
Serenity a friend, my body numb like I were dead
For all the clingy needy the child inside is prone to do
I want to reach out and touch you, you make me feel brand new
Track Name: As Time Goes By
Clouds hang over my heavy head
falling rain has me feeling saturated
while drizzle keeps falling down
the sun is shining for everyone else all around

Time and a while, its been so long since I could smile
it crept and cracked across my face, just to vanish without a trace

What if I told you I went away
to wait for sunshine, a brand new day
What if I said that I was here still inside
my heart and mind locked in place where they collide
... as time goes by
Track Name: Atonement
n/a
Track Name: That Day
I can hear the sound of thunder
feel the ground beneath me shake
it seems this world means to drag us under
with what's going on, it's more than I can take

Since that day the sun seems dimmer
since that day I've lost my way
if that day could be forgotten
I'd tear it up, throw it away

If I could run away, hide from my mistakes
If I could hide away, run from all my pain

never thought I'd always remember
I hoped that memory would fade away
even now I feel the raw emotions
of a broken heart and life laid bare

<chorus>

<guitar solos>

I can hear the sound of thunder
feel the ground beneath me shake
if that day could be forgotten
I'd tear it up and throw it away
