Track Name: Hard To Follow
Hard to follow, harder to follow
Don’t look back, you’ve been there
Taking steps ahead, we’ll get there

I - I know I can, I’ve been there
I - I know I will, I trust you
I - I know we’ll make it, we have to

I know we have to

Day after day after day
Awaiting a fate we don’t know
Day after day after day
Losing my faith it’s so slow
Track Name: Rotten Dove
I’ve always had hope for all of us, but things still change with time
I can’t seem to do much about it
Please convince me it’s worth it still

I just can’t, forget about it
I don’t care, I want you gone

I’ve been here a long time, and now I know
That I’ve waited here far too long, and I’ve got some place to go

I know, I will be safe and

You will be here when, I need you most
Track Name: Standing In The Light
You’re standing in the light that way
I swore it’d never fade
You’re standing in the light away

You said you knew, life’s this way
You said you’d know, you’d have another day
Another day

Another day
Track Name: Instincts
There are things that we know, there are things that we do
Nothing feels so, right and wrong, as being here with you
But now you know your memories are lost
They’re lost, you know they’re lost
Does it bother you, does it bother you?

Things have been tough and
Things have been strange
There have been horrors, and we know by,
And we know

By now we know there’s answers to, our problems
I know we’ll get there soon, we’ll make it
We know there’s problems with, our answers

But we got it figured out
Track Name: Steel Chains
But you’re right, and that’s hard to find out
Cause the truth is hard to know
Those lies I’ve been told, they pushed me down this road

But now I can steer straight
Just forgetting what I know
I’ve got a heart, I need to follow
I need to follow

It’s night, I’ve lost my way
But I’ll keep walking to the break of day

Break, break of day

Now you’ve done this
You have to know
My heart is gone
You’re all alone

I’m only going places away from here

As I take these chains off my feet, I run away

I run away
Track Name: Couldn't Stay
You were gone and then I know
That you always had to go, so far
So far

But now there’s a hole in you’re place
It won’t seem to fade away, so far
So far

You’ve got me feeling upside down
Just from seeing you around
The feelings gone away
I knew I couldn’t stay

It took another side of me
To see that we could never be, at all
At all

But now we’re treading separate paths
I knew those times could never last, at all
At all

I couldn’t stay
