Don't Come Closer Music by Christopher Moncrieffe Words by J. Christopher-Rome (Copyright Confusion Of Words Music) I'm standing in the wings Help me out Tell me what you think Help me out What and what, what and what I like to see how things have changed Am I out? What and what, what and what Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Let me out I made good on what you're worth Found a way that I could walk Searching for lost time Fitting pieces of my mind I finally find a reason for this I find out what I have missed I like to see how things have changed I like to see that things have changed Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Let me out Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Don't come closer Gonna have to live with this Let me out I'm standing in the wings Help me out I like to see how things have changed Am I out? I like to know where I can go for my out What and what, what and what What and what, what and what

Never Said Impossible Music by Christopher Moncrieffe Words by J. Christopher-Rome (Copyright Confusion Of Words Music) I never said impossible I said maybe I never used to pace the floor But that's changing I'm gonna live breathless Beneath you Past what you've seen Trying to leave Only I won't But that's what I need Situate yourself in my mind Like you always belong Comfortably And everything that led me here Is now changing I can't hold faith and hope To what's fleeting I'm gonna lie helpless Beside you Forget where we've been Trying to leave Only I won't But that's what I need Situate yourself in my mind I'm on, I'm on Lock arms or lock me out Lock arms Lock me out Best avoid the islands in me The water, the sands, all in me And better yet Just avoid it all for me Don't mistake the violence for dreams Cuz I won't But that's what I need Test the color Test the warmth Test the things in your head Lose your mind to fake it Just say, just say Don't mistake the violence in me To understand what I need Through the nose you'll make it Through the nose you'll make it Test the color Test the warmth Test the things in your head Test the color Test the warmth Test the things in your head

Naming The Flowers And Trees Music by Christopher Moncrieffe Words by J. Christopher-Rome (Copyright Confusion Of Words Music) I look to find in your eyes Something to finally let me down "I'm finally on the floor again" Is the only message I've found I could live by letting go So let me go I could live by letting go So let me go I'm finally facing sleep again But the lies exist And end up so desperate, you see This city has dreams So send me words That I can steal Send me something That I can steal Like lies We end up so desperate Like lies I look to find in your eyes Something to finally let me down "I'm finally on the floor again" Is the only message I've found I could live by letting go So let me go I could live by letting go So let me go It's the past, one second at a time We sit in the garden naming flowers and trees It's the past, one second at a time We think of what's after Think of what's after Give and take Or just carry me You know where I've been You know where I've been Give and take Or just carry me I'm finally facing sleep again But the lies exist And end up so desperate you see This city has dreams So send me words That I can steal Send me something That I can steal Like lies Like lies Like lies

Saturnalia (Look... Around) Music by Christopher Moncrieffe Words by J. Christopher-Rome (Copyright Confusion Of Words Music) How can you not be sure The sun will come again? From the veil to the solstice lights Look... around Fall's gold colors dull To a Christ mass tree of life From the veil to the solstice lights Look... around Saturn, sun and son I am winter's own unconquered son Oh Saturn, io Saturn! I am winter's own unconquered son Oh Saturn, io Saturn! I am winter's own unconquered son Autumn resting, winter's lucky fruit Spring and summer comes again Laurel garlands and candled hair Look... around Presentation of apple's gold Lights in the sky From the veil to the solstice lights Look... around Saturn, sun and son I am winter's own unconquered son Oh Saturn, io Saturn! I am winter's own unconquered son Oh Saturn, io Saturn! Look... around
