Track Name: Monsters in my Head
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord, my soul to keep
And if I see the shadows on the wall
I pray that you'd be with me
So that someone would believe
When I see the shadows crawl

Can I sleep on your floor?
There are monsters in my head
When morning comes, they'll be no more.

What was that?
I heard a scream!
In darkness why is nothing what it seems?
Looking back it's silly
How the mind works late at night
But don't you dare shut off the light

Can I sleep on your floor
There are monsters in my head
When morning comes, they'll be no more.
They'll be no more.
Track Name: Upside Down
May as well pull up a chair
While desperation sprays it's ugly everywhere
There's no way
That this will end well for me

Why's it always end this way:
Destruction from an unpredictable hurricane?
From the eye,
We never ever think we're going down in this one

The days are getting shorter now
So what else can I do
But leave the lightning on for you?
I won't turn around
'Til everything is upside down.

Maybe could we just skip past
All the crumbling towers? All the crumbling towers?
All the bitter insecurities of love lost
'Til it all gets turned right side up again?

But time
Doesn't do as I say
It listens to you

The days are getting shorter now
So what else can I do
But leave the lightning on for you?
I won't turn around
'Til everything is upside down.
Track Name: Dirt and Water
Love
Like you never got your heart split in two before
And run
'Til your legs won't move anymore
You've seen
All the darkness and felt all the pain you can bear
But dream
Like you've never

Seen the world
For what it is:
A big ball of dirt and water
Spinning so out of control.

Laugh
Like you're crazy, 'cause it's the only way to keep from going insane
And after
The sun sets, thank God for another day

'Cause while you were out,
Playing war,
You forgot that there's so much more
Than dirt and water
Spinning so out of control

And if you
Would stay with me just a little more
I'd show you the world
Track Name: At Your Door
There's no where to run
I'd rather be right here, right now, with you.
Just know you're the one for me
No matter what I do.

How can you say that you'll always be alone?
That's crazy - you're crazy don't you know?
I got carried away - I tried to find my way back home
But here I am again, at your door.

A lonely word, "amazing,"
Escaping form my mind
I owe so much more but never before
Were words so hard to find

You turned and asked me slowly,
"Was it just a line?"
Just go to sleep, don't worry your head,
Your heart, you're mine.

How can you say that you'll always be alone?
That's crazy - you're crazy don't you know?
I got carried away - I tried to find my way back home
But here I am again, at your door.
Track Name: Too Late For Words
Its too late for words and its over before its begun
I was scared, and now I've done it again
I'll look back on the times that I swallowed my tongue
And I'll promise myself, never again.

Its too late for words but these are the ones
That got stuck in my head, but never would come
You're beautiful, you're brilliant, why won't you believe me?
Its true, yeah its true, yeah its true.

Did I let you go?
Did I let you go?
I did, I did, I did

Its too late for words so I'll listen to what goes unsaid
And I'll overanalyze, twisting my head.
I've got so much to say.
Its not the time or the place
But will it ever be?
Track Name: Cold
Cold, to calm me down
but I don't know
the first thing about you
so won't you tell me now?

Cold, to fill me up
to pour me out
you know it must be true
I know I've said enough

Cold, to hide my fear
you shine and glow
yellow to my blue
won't you let me near?

Cold, to warm my face
to fight the cold
to throw in something new
some magic in its place

Cold, to spin me wild
we're getting old
when all we wanna do
is play it like a child

Cold, to live again
the night we stole
I'll think it through and through
if dreaming's not a sin.

Cold, it all comes back
but all too slow
a piece I never knew
a blur escaping black

Cold, to calm me down
and now I know
the first thing about you
you turned my world around.
