Track Name: The Softest Breeze
The softest breeze would blow you from your feet
the slightest shake would feel like an earthquake
when the water moves, it moves you with it too
you can't resist it, so you just go with it

And who are you to tell me I'm no good?
and who am I? Do I deserve some better life?
One without waiting, hopes that are fading
and there are no sounds, darkness all around
you can't resist it, you just go with it

They put the pressure on you, they know how to break you down
'cause it's easier than you try and make it seem.

The softest breeze would blow you from your feet...
you can't resist it, so you just go with it.

They put the pressure on you, they know how to break you down
'cause it's easier than you try and make it seem.
Track Name: Fool's Gold
run run run so far away from the fox in the lion's jaws
an honest heart won't win to pride these days
everyone will sit around and laugh at nature's unruly laws
as if they've got a golden book that reads,
get on your high horse or get on your knees

i think there's something going wrong over there,
i think you might have lost sight of why you ever cared
is it a person or a thing, an idea or a meaning?
holding on to paper scraps of a real thing

is it a person or a thing, an idea or a meaning?
holding on to paper scraps of a real thing
you've got your fool's gold in your hands,
you've got your pride and you've got your plans

oh, they take me for a fool,
thinking i would give in to their side too
oh, they take me for a fool,
thinking pride would make me blind

i think there's something going wrong over there
i think you might have lost sight of why you ever cared
is it a person or a thing, an idea or a meaning?
holding on to paper scraps of a real thing
Track Name: Criminal
It's not what I wanted, it's not what I came for
I went to bed with a cloud the size of an ocean hanging over my head
It's not what I wrote out, not what I created
am I stuck in the past, with ideas outdated?
A storm that would swallow us all is rolling in, rolling in...

How did I get here? I can't quite follow the road from the past,
it's just too hard to swallow that I was here last year,
it was a disaster, believe me.

You don't have to play the fool,
if you're a criminal start your fires, break their rules
You don't have to live between lines that were drawn
for someone unlike you and unlike me

It's not what I wanted, not what I came for
I went to bed with a cloud the size of an ocean
hanging over my head...
