So you say it’s not something you can do Best protect yourself from the likes of you know who Knight takes rook it all ends on a dime Just a victim waiting on a crime A victim waiting on a crime And then you play it like an undisputed fact The gods have spoken there’ll be no second act You’re holding out you’ve got something else in mind Just a victim waiting on a crime A victim waiting on a crime There’ll be no wondering what happened here The die is cast Is your conscience clear As you someday turns to Ask you why You would Leave it on the table Without so much as a try I search for peace of mind What do I find Just a victim waiting on a crime A victim waiting on a crime And so it goes with armageddon in a dress The view is perfect but it leaves an awful mess The window is closed no need to waste more of your time Just a victim waiting on a crime A victim waiting on a crime

Left to my own devices I take a walk to what might have been And along the way The rabbit hole invites me in Walking back or right over the edge Oh the beautiful calm of the horrible relief Once upon a time the end Everything in its place Each cobblestone every smiling face I slip I fall step on a crack Something breaks don’t know where I’m at Walking back or right over the edge Oh the beautiful calm of the horrible relief Once upon a time the end With each step those old tapes they still play The same old tune the same old song as yesterday And it keeps me hanging on to things that I knew were wrong And it keeps me hanging on to feelings long since gone And it keeps me hanging on Too long So strong It’s time I just get on Walking back or right over the edge Oh the beautiful calm of the horrible relief Walking back or right over the edge Oh the beautiful calm of the horrible relief Once upon a time the end

Was it the kind of tired that sleep couldn’t take away The kind of something with its hold on you night and day I can’t imagine no I wouldn’t begin to try To weather the storm that must have raged inside Please hold tight One more night When there is nothing left I guess there’s nothing left to do The thing is there is I’ll have to do it all without you Were you feeling stuck between a rock and some other kind of place The kind of feeling that time could not erase I’m not here to tell you that the middle will always catch your fall But sometimes the middle is better than no place at all Please hold tight One more night When there is nothing left I guess there’s nothing left to do The thing is there is I’ll have to do it all without you Would you choose to believe me Could you see it as true All these pieces only serve to remind me You take us with you Please hold tight One more night When there is nothing left I guess there’s nothing left to do The thing is there is now I’ll have to do it all without you

Gone 05:28
I was looking for someone just like you As it happens you were searching for her too I thought I held it in the palm of my hand But there was one thing I did not understand No it’s not true And it’s not you Just a dress you put on No it’s not true And it’s not you So I’m gone Well I’m not perfect with that no one will disagree But everything I have here was meant for you to share with me So when you ask for more am I to suspend disbelief I suppose that doors have hinges for occasions such as these No it’s not true And it’s not you Just a dress you put on No it’s not true And it’s not you So I’m gone Yes I’m gone This nowhere train has made it’s last stop my friend As a another fruitless conversation comes to an end It’s what you’ve been telling me so now I’m telling you I’m gone Yes I’m gone Now if you find her won’t you please let me know Because I’d wait here forever just to tell her I love her so Until then I keep looking for someone just like you And I’m hoping that she won’t be searching for her too No it’s not true And it’s not you Just a dress that you put on And I don’t know how to find you Always one step right behind you And it’s not true No its not you So I’m gone I stay gone I’m gone

This Picture 04:52
Well it could be between the raindrops Or on the head of a pin Either way it’s clear as day I’m never going to win It started out on the fast track I laid them all out for you to see A funny thing happened along the way You would take any, any from me I’ve been holding on to this picture in my mind I took it when we met for the first time But now this love of mine won’t let me cross one more line And asks me why the road was so long You kept pushing on this open door But you were already through A little less about yourself And maybe I wouldn’t wonder about you, no I’ve been holding on to this picture in my mind I took it when we met for the first time But now this love of mine won’t let me cross one more line And asks me why the road was so long It’s funny how your actions Give your words the lie As you try to sell yourself The latest alibi The last in a long line Further than the eye can see But it’s happened more then twice So shame Shame on me I’ve been holding on to this picture in my mind I took it when we met for the first time But now this love of mine won’t let me cross one more line And asks the old familiar question I’m open to all suggestions Tell me why was the road was so long

Again 05:10
I’ve been that man again Reflections with holes again Over and over again Alone in a crowd again Demons at every bend again Where have you gone to again I’ve looked in these eyes again From here a million miles again I hear it so loudly again I look around again What do they see again Just the dark reflecting the light again All of this time again All for naught again For once in my life Never again No never again No never again Never again
