Track Name: Eternal Slumber
I sit, staring, gaping
Into the sweet dreams of abyss
Time traveling memories
Back to the sweetest kiss
The only victory I fought for
Rest there upon your lips
While your ever gentle hands
Trickled to my hips

(chorus)
And you reside
on the inside of my eyelids
And you love
But all sanity forbids
I waited
Now I stare in disbelief
Your eyes
Were the ultimate theif
When they stole my heart

I close my eyes
Cannot believe I am awake
If this is a dream
Give me eternal slumber
Cause I am so afraid
That our glory days have number
I'm strong but my heart
Is so easy to break

(chorus)
Track Name: Closed Doors
The faith you had in your heart
Grew so heavy, cold, and dark
There was nothing for you here anymore
We all just left as you closed your door

So you've been holding your breath
Ever since your mothers death
You told us you needed a way out
your mind so riddled with doubt

You gave up, you gave in
You drowned yourself whiskey and gin
You gave up, you gave in
You were never comfortable in your skin

Your eyes still linger in my mind
Your voice was always soft and kind
We all wish we saw the signs
But we couldn’t read between the lines

You gave up, you gave in
You drowned yourself whiskey and gin
You gave up, you gave in
You were never comfortable in your skin
Track Name: You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

The other night dear as I was sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
When I awoke dear I was mistaken
And I hung my head and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away

"I’ve longed to hold you, since I first saw you
I dreamed that you could be my love
Now that I’ve held you, you’re all I see dear
You have been sent from heaven above"
-Turkeyes Laffity

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
You'll never know dear how much I love you
Please don't take my sunshine away
Track Name: Next To Me
The colors you see
The fumes that you breathe
That you would be with me
The greatest choice you've made in my life

The words you write
The melodies sweet
You put up no fight
When i spoke of you being my wife

We’ve got our whole lives ahead of us
Our children would be proud when they've read of us
You’ve got my heart till it's beating end
Till then you'll be my lover be my friend

No matter how hard
I’ve tried no words
Do justice to describe

How your love has never lied
Unless it's next to me
Track Name: Untitled In 3/4
The winds of time
The trials of crime
Their icy cold fingers
Grasping at our throats

The future holds us
The present scolds us
From the past our monsters
Storm the castle moats

Put your hands over my eyes
Hide the evil from my cries
When we get to where we’re going
I’ll wake up safe and sound

The ship on life's seas
The tumult of it frees
From our perseverance
Proved ourselves that love floats

I will sing you a song
Of how love’s never wrong
How demons seem like dust
Whenever you’re around

Put your hands over my eyes
Hide the evil from my cries
When we get to where we’re going
I’ll wake up safe and sound
Track Name: Hollow
I won't let my best friend in
No I wont let him in again
The trust that we had so long ago
Has left me for my sorrow
And I’m lost again

I wont let my true love in
No I wont let him in my friend
Stuck in somerthing I started so long ago
Something thats empty and hollow
And I’m longing for him

I wont let the good lord in
No I wont let him in again
The faith that I had so long ago
Has become so hard to swallow
And I’m so thirsty

I wont let myself in
No I wont let my soul rest
No I can't let these pain go
become I’m so empty and hollow
And I will be Free
Track Name: The Black Widow
Today, I'll write you, a song that's happy
And fills my heart with butterflies
Tomorrow I'll write another about
How in the end one of us cries

When sooner or later
We're not too blind to see our lies
And our love is rotting
We can't see through the swarm of flies
For now we'll feel the tingle linger on our lips
Our fingers tangle Into something that feels like bliss
Until the day we do, we don't, we almost kiss
One day with outstretched arms we'll reach
and barely miss

And so it goes
In patterns or rows
The bell curve of love
Can be graphed so well it flows
It sews, unseams
As all our hopes and dreams
Jump out our windows
Track Name: Burying The Past
There are claw marks on the walls
From the animals that lived here
Only horror dwells these halls
For this house has only seen fear

No one can tell you what family means
Alone, dark, where no one could see
No one was there to hear your screams
You're still suffering at twenty three

standing next to you at his wake
I can feel your hand start to shake
Now through the tears in your eyes
I heard you laugh through your cries

"It's over now", “It’s over now”
“He is finally gone”
