Track Name: Monkey in the Middle
Monkey in the middle, that's exactly what I am
Jumping to get the goods that are being tossed to another man
They all think it's a game but I'm starting to think it's more
When my chest starts to congest with all these feelings I abhor

The pep band's going crazy now and all the trumpets will sound even when we're going down because we played the game and remembered our name, though we're not the same, we endured the pain

The refs are growing blinder, they ain't calling it so fair
But I keep on jumping higher for the prize up in the air
The good guy never wins but I never will conform
To the ways of cheating jealous snakes I always have abhorred
Track Name: Curfew
I'm loving where we are tonight
Maybe it's the moon, maybe it's the light
I'm fighting back the voice that's in my head
That's saying this is so right

I don't wanna hurry this along
I don't wanna take it slow
I don't think that I should stay
But I don't really wanna go

You're taking my heart and you're running so fast
I can't catch up, I lose my breath
I never knew I would fall so quick
Am I serious, you've got me delirious
I'm on my feet trying not to fall
The "gos and stops" are all mixed up cause I misread your calls
I'm confident but shaking here,
As I try to plan my next move
Away from you

I don't wanna hurry this along
I don't wanna take it slow
I don't think that I should say
What I already know I know

I don't wanna hurry this along
I don't wanna take it slow
I've got something I should say
Yeah, there's something you should know
Track Name: West
I'm gonna grab my keys and drive as far as I can make it in my car, got an empty feeling in my chest, so I'm gonna head west
As far as I have heard, the sun's always bright, with clear skies I could use for a while, a chance, a choice, I've made up my mind
I'm gonna head west and see what I find
Foot to the floor from the town I abhor I can't take any more
I'm hopeful about the direction and route, things that are in store
I wave goodbye to everyone, not a hand held high to this broken son

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I would love new scenery, and the west coast never sounded so good to me

Well I'm not the type to express my pains, but this shadow of mine's the only one who stays, I feel so alone and I suppose that's fine, cuz I messed it all up with every friend of mine
And oh Cali, oh Cali, save me some sand, my mind's set on your beaches grand, Arizona, Arizona, just heading through
Nevada is closing this song I'm composing is for oceans blue

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I need love, any takers out there? The west coast never sounded so good to me

The blinker keeps the tempo as I turn from disaster
The angel on my shoulder helps me move a bit faster
The demons in the rear view, for my soul they are after
But I'm moving out west to start a new chapter

Well my river's run dry, I could use a change, cuz life has really got me drained, so I will head for better days, and if I like it more there, well I guess I will stay
I'm in love, but he's in love with you too
And the west coast never sounded much better to me
Track Name: The Current
Thrown headfirst into the wild sea
Unpredictable, ever so free

Falling in love
What a foolish thing
When the Current pulls
you away from me

Death, rejection, and rebellion wear
The fringes of my heart
And time unravels the rest

Falling in love
What a brittle thing
Sure to collapse
But it's something we need

Oh Love,
What a furious thing
When the current pulls
You away from me
Track Name: Black Ice
Godless nights these streets conceal
Guilt grips tightly the steering wheel
Shadows fuel this automobile
They taunt, and they prey, they long to kill

The taste is sweet, oh victory, we'll parade through the ashes in the street,
Where flowers bloom through demons doom and congregate at our weary feet

Rearview nightmares, clear glazed roads
From black and white to sinister rainbows

The taste is sweet, oh victory, we'll parade through the ashes in the street,
Where flowers bloom through demons doom and congregate at our weary feet
And when the winter fades away, the spring swears to hold sweeter days, as long as we can fix our eyes ahead
Track Name: Play God
Holy Ghost on fire, conform to my desires, burn a trail from me to shore
If you would suffice, and heed to my device, security would invite me in
If only

Control is in my hands

Holy King, I cry, the devil shelters my confidence in titanium
That's self-constructed,
Let me coast along, effortlessly far from wrong
Can't your kingdom come with less aggression?
Just give me more

Control is in my hands

I thought I had control, I never had control, I'll never have control
It's all an illusion
A slave to sin or life, the devil took disguise as my own advice
Now I'm lost in the ocean

Control is in Your hands

I can't afford to play God anymore
