Track Name: Wear A Smile
Is there a chance to find an ounce of joy?
Then I will wear a smile, forget the noise

I am no stranger than your counterpart
Don't try to fool my mind to doubt my heart
Track Name: Floating Birds
Crawl inside and find me
Prise the claws that bind me
Far from done

I was once awake to
Never dreamed of haunted views
Far from done

Why do I breathe?
Why do I see floating birds caught in the rain?
Slowly fall down one at a time

Hide away your pleasure
Leash me to your tether
Far from done

Why do I breathe?
Why do I see floating birds caught in the rain?
Slowly fall down one at a time
Track Name: Circus
Come to watch the show?
File in row by row
No seats close enough
Eyes are filled with dust

From this circus
From this circus

Did you see him hang?
From the ropes he sang
Want your money back?
What did you expect?

From this circus
From this circus
Track Name: Tired Eyes
Turn around and you'll find
I can't see you
Sealed beneath your disguise
I can't see you

Where did she escape?
The child inside you
Imprisoned by hate
Of yourself

I saw tired eyes, tired eyes in you
I fought tired eyes, tired eyes in you

Step a little closer and smile
I can see you
Somewhere beneath your disguise
I can see you

You saw tired eyes, tired eyes in me
You fought tired eyes, tired eyes in me

Turn around and you'll find
I can't see you
Sealed beneath your disguise
I can't see you
Track Name: Mother Said
Mother said never play with toys
Unaware, wanting something more
Tell me when it started
Every word is a careless song

Mother said I would never learn
I was young, but I cared too much
Tell me where we parted
Every laugh is a blurred existence

Tempt me with yours, your beauty your charm
You know I want, know I want
I'll share my doubt for one ounce of how to
Love someone, love someone
