Track Name: Twisted Rainbows
Changing, changing
Watching the world rearranging
Blaming, blaming
See the sky is red and flaming

Looking through a filter of blood and tears
Everything is different and when you go
Under Twisted Rainbows

Falling, falling
Thru a thick air that's appalling
No stopping, stopping
No going back, and no stalling

Looking through a filter of blood and tears
Everything is different and when you go
Under Twisted Rainbows
Track Name: Didn't
Maybe if I had known some things were over
Maybe if I had known my time was short
Maybe if I had it to do all over
I might have done something more

I didn't, I didn't, didn't get to talk to you
I didn't, I didn't, say the things I wanted to
I didn't, I didn't, didn't even make a move
I didn't, I didn't, I didn't


Maybe it's a good thing that nothing happened
Maybe it's a good thing that I'm too shy
Sometimes when the illusion is shattered
Fantasies and dreams can die

I didn't...


I didn't go there
Do you know how I wanted to
I didn't go there
For fear I would get to near to you


Don't wanna have you, then not have have you
I want you, I don't want to
Believe me, it's not easy
Holding all these feelings

I didn't...

I didn't...
Track Name: Keep Your Distance
Every time you turn around
I'm giving you the up down baby
I know it's crazy, so
I try hide every thing
I'm good at keeping secrets baby
My aura's hazy

There's something in the air that's dangerous
Between us
Gravity of lust
Keep your distance

The battle ground is in my head
Stray bullets of things I keep thinking
Without even blinking, but
Fragile objects tend to break
The fine line of truth and deception
Life of discretion

There's something in the air that's dangerous...


Nothing gets inside my walls
I fall inside my own castle
I don't need the hassle, but
Somehow you just won't go away
Made your way inside my armor
I can't fight much longer

There's something in the air that's dangerous...
Track Name: Clean Walk Away
Lying in bed
With memories of things said
Pull covers from my face
Only thing I can embrace
Turn a hundred shades of red
Remembering things we did
Wonder if you recall
Or do you think of me at all

Clean walk away
Nothing to left to say
Starting over, brand new
Like there was never me and you
Said you would stay
Then made a clean walk away

Feeling abused
Why do I have to think of you
Wish I could be ice
Like you, never think twice
Instead, I feel tortured
You still have me cornered
I guess you're flying free
Happy to never think of me

Clean walk away...
Track Name: What's My Name
You're the only one I didn't lie to
And now I wish I had
Feeling bad
Crying sad
Down and screaming mad

I didn't mean to come around and tear you down
I'm sorry that I did
You hit the skids
Blew a lid
Now you have all these memories to rid

CH
Do you wish
You had never heard my name
Do you wish
You had never felt the flame
Do you wish you never had to take some blame
Or feel ashamed
Do you wish
You never heard my name

Now you have lots of things you need to think about
Exactly who are you
What is true
What's taboo
Who you're gonna let thru

I only asked that you not push me away
I shoulda known that's not your style
You're too hostile
I gave a mile
Still nothing was worth your while

CH
Do you wish...

I ignored the warning signs
I knew you never would be mine
But magnets can't choose what they attract
And the thought you still pulls me back


CH
Do you wish...
You never heard my name
Bet you wish
You never heard my name
Track Name: Too Bad
Feelings black, blue
Bruised skin, heart too
Falling, untrue
Reeling, confused
Battle soldier
Can't get over
Crimson joker
Life's destroyer
Give me
Give me something I can use

I still want you
And I still need you
But don't want to
It's too bad, too bad
So sad

Steaming, crying
Flying, dying
Loving, lying
Trying, denying
Undercover
Feed the hunger
Make me suffer
Little lover
Give me, give me
Give me something I can use

I still you want
And I still need you
But I don't want to
It's too bad, too bad
So sad
Track Name: Fantasy
Fantasies and
Twisted dreams and
Bittersweet tongue to chew
Pulling strings and
Feigning feelings and
Going back on truth
Big wide eyes
Little white lies
Go down smooth

You give me, give me, give me, give me what I want
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me it won't stop
Make me, make me, make me, think I'm what you want
I believe
In your fantasy

Portraits in oil and
Lives to be spoiled and
Colors that mix into new hues
Intoxicated with
Love fabricated
It's hard to believe bad news
Compromises
In hot disguises
Go down smooth

You give me, give me, give me, give me what I want...

Fantasies and
Twisted dreams and
The taste of forbidden fruit
Curious wine and
New ways to dine and
Feelings that simply don't compute
Big, black lies
From sexy eyes
Go down smooth

You give me, give me, give me, give me what I want...

You give me, give me, give me, give me what I want...
Track Name: Where The Story Begins
Always sinking down
Always sinking down
Under skin
Where the story begins

Tearing things apart
Burning deep and dark
Under skin
Where the story begins

Playing with fire
Jumping on nails
Feeling the pain with unholy detail
Walking on glass
Running with knives
Loving the sin only guilt can deny
This is where the story begins

Breaking thru black ice
Paying any price
Under skin
Where the story begins

Playing with fire....

Always coming round
Screaming without sound

Playing with fire.....
