Track Name: Don't Believe In Love
You say the world is cold and unfair
There's not enough, nobody cares
Faking a smile, turning away
Everything's dying, everything's gray
Being a prophet, granting your own wish
I don't believe you don't believe
Don't believe in love

I trained my mind to toil, bearing every burden on my own
Long as I remember, I've struggled to remember to let go
Always looking inward down hallways I've imagined
In a labyrinth of passionate memories
And I owe my friends some answers for all of my demanding
That they focus all their private thoughts on me
The lure in the mousetrap will lead this rat to madness
A life of perpetual worrying.. but I won't spend my life in toil
For providence has shown me to refocus my attention lovingly
Being a prophet, granting your own wish
I don't believe you don't believe
Don't believe in love

A life spent alone cannot be a rewarding one
And I can tell by your heartbeat that you are still holding on
To a vague premonition that not every hope is gone
And that's why I don't believe that you don't believe in love
Track Name: Caspian
Come on, I'm waiting for you
I'll not resign to a life of abuse
So bored, fading to blue
No one has the hands for a life in their youth

Don't you leave me alone, like a wolf echoes a storm
Solitary in pain, cause you're always always away
Don't you leave me alone
Track Name: The Discussion
The discussion took place in an old building made new again
Where we talk and we make friends, where lessons learned are forgotten
We had Snow White in her mirror stare
and Arnold's candy coated seductive snare
He brought Connie to a field somewhere, and told her who she was

The revolutions of the Earth and the Moon
The morning star rising again
It never stopped and it never started
It has always been
We're only vessels made to carry love or fear or strength and steel

He filled her head and heart with smoke
Like the sea crashing in when the levees broke
While Nichole was busy doing something else
She missed the warning she'll need to save herself
