Track Name: Giorgia
Always a lethal trap, the golden girl.
Black hole gravity draws you into her.
Till you uncover a disappointing fake.
Or worse you find out she's real and that your heart might be at stake.

Sunny Italy wait for me, I'll sail my feelings across the sea.
Pack your bags cause I'm not coming home alone.
Not coming home.

Oh Giorgia, you're still the one that I've been waiting for.

Little Miss Italy she was a high school dream.
Realistically, that's all she'll ever be.
But realism never wrote good songs.
Crazier things have happened, somehow dad married mom.

Sunny Italy wait for me, I'll sail my feelings across the sea.
Pack your bags cause I'm not coming home alone.
Not coming home.

Oh Giorgia, you're still the one that I've been waiting for.
Track Name: Steamboat Rock
Paint me a golden sky with your books and afternoons.
The happy world you occupy won't be changing soon.
But someday.

I was watching more than mud wash down.
The current wiped the names from sandstone walls.
I was somewhat younger then; sometimes I wish I was still so small.

Make me a secret dream.
Fill it in with forest green.
Cover it with magic spells, and may my memory serve me will.
Till someday

I was watching more than mud wash down.
The current wiped the names from sandstone walls.
I was somewhat younger then; sometimes I wish I was still so small.

Find me a resting place when no more sunshine finds my face,
And I have lost the secret dreams, and golden skies escape me.
On that day.
Track Name: Samson
I fear not for the things of men, but I fear the thoughts that are in my head.
The Devil owns a piece of me, and I can't break free.
When I lift my head in the morning sun, all the people look and the demons run,
When I lay it down in the dark of night, there's something not right.

They look to me to be their King, I am strong and I can sing,
But they don't know what I feel inside, what I can't hide.
No man can bind my bones, and those who try don't go home.
But I'm bound up tight at my very core and I can't take much more.

I'll lead them on while they still believe, they don't know, they only see,
The hero that I'll never be; the one in my dreams.
If I break in a day or two, then they'll all know what I always knew,
I'll share the secret I couldn't keep, and they'll bury me deep.

All this time that I lived a lie, the times I almost lost my mind,
I give up the man I've been, I won't go back again.
God grant me this, my final plea; I die as someone I want to be;
However they remember me, I need to know I'm free.
Track Name: My Beauty
I was made to lose to you, and I only feel alone with you.
Feelings that I never knew, don't leave soon, don't leave soon.
My beauty.

Looking for my place in time, you could be my safety line.
Catch me let me catch you by surprise, my beauty.

I found what I want, but it's lost inside.
Unlock me, reveal me, shine your light.
Know my mind and love me, my beauty.

You know the answers, riddles draw me near.
Open your emotions, whisper in my ear.
Let me know, let me in, let me in my beauty.

I found what I want, but it's lost inside.
Unlock me, reveal me, shine your light.
Know my mind and love me, my beauty.
Track Name: Town
Everyone I know knows my name.
All my friends and enemies the same.
An abandoned building on a busy street;
They know where I am but they don't know me.

There's nothing left to do inside this lonely town but pray.

Sometimes I'm alone when the wind blows down,
It's hard to let it go.
I live in the only empty house in town,
Till you come home.

So wipe my windows and fix my doors.
Paint me new with a color of happy sorts.
Clean me up and dress me down.
Sweep off the porch and welcome this whole town.

There's nothing left to do inside this lonely town but pray.
If only you could step in for awhile you'd stay.
Track Name: Poison In Her Bones
A little flower bruised by the rain: alone and helpless she's in pain.
Be careful now, there's poison flowing in her veins.
Don't stop too long as you walk by,
You know her beauty will catch your eye.
She's not a villain but she can take you by surprise.

There's poison in her bones. There might be nothing you can do.
Save her if you can, but don't let her catch you.

A little closer and you migh find,
She smells as nice as she looks while passing by.
And it's hard not to believe her.
A little flower you wanted to help,
Covered by her perfume you can't help yourself.
It's hard to fight, close your eyes and take a bite.

There's poison in her bones. There might be nothing you can do.
Save her if you can, but don't let her catch you.

Only when you've taken a piece of her heart,
You finally realize it was poison from the start.
Your hurting her, and she's killing you.
As it turns out, your plans of sacrifice,
Were just a cover for the lust in your eyes.
You got just what you wanted but paid a higher price.

There's poison in her bones. There might be nothing you can do.
Save her if you can, but don't let her catch you.

There's still hope for love, but not the kind you drempt of.
After years of tears and scars,
You can finally cleanse the poison in your heart.
Track Name: Cinderella
Don't you let those tears fall down your rosy cheeks,
till I can catch them.
I will wipe your sad eyes dry from worries,
and broken expectations.

Trust with me with your heart and I will heal it,
from past abuses.
I'll be gentle with your fears and scars,
and all your bruises.

Oh Cinderella, ragged, running Cinderella,
leave a shoe for me.

Are you tired of living as a pauper,
dispensable?
Searching for your meaning in the hearts of men,
with selfish lack of self-control.

Find your hand in mine, and let me draw you in,
and I will love you like a sunrise, beautiful and radiant.

Oh Cinderella, ragged, running Cinderella,
leave a shoe for me.
Track Name: Change Me Now
Does it hurt an inchworm to rip out of his skin?
I was not made to stay the way I am.
He tears away the silk and flesh that was restraining him.
I was not made to stay the way I am.

Change me fast but change me gently,
Change me fast but change me gently,
Change me fast but change me gently,
It hurts to move and hurts to stay the same.

What makes a seedling push up from the dirt?
I was not made to stay the way I am.
Scraping to the sunlight through the gravel it must hurt.
I was not made to stay the way I am.

Change me now if you can do it,
Change me now if you can do it,
Change me now if you can do it,
It hurts to move and hurts to stay the same.

Change me fast but change me gently,
Change me fast but change me gently,
Change me fast but change me gently,
It hurts to move and hurts to stay the same.
