Track Name: Nightmares
Nightmares (Nightness)

Your insides don't count
They don't exist at all
Your outside acts out
It moves all on it's own
And you're somewhere in between
Where your mind meets your dream
Track Name: Swing Low
Swing Low (Horror)

You cast a large shadow for something that isn't real
It's a growing problem, like the ringing in my ears

You'll swing, swing low
You'll sink, far below

You leave out the best parts, and blurring all the lines
It's horror and sorrow crippling me at all times

You'll swing, swing low
You'll sink, far below
Track Name: When Madness Strikes
When Madness Strikes (Haunting)

She arrived in her prime
We watched her go by
A parade for a parade
We'll never treat you the same
When madness strikes
Those old Hollywood types
She's going away
But she'll be back someday

She'd been dead for days
Before they took her body away
A parade for a parade
We'll never see you the same
With no eyes in her head
She turned to me and she said
I'm going away
But I'll be back someday
Track Name: Light Sleeper
Light Sleeper (Despair)

When it rains, it pours
I'm going off the rails
There's a white elephant in the room
It's a giant weight pressing on you

You're the face that hangs over my sleep
You're that place where I count all my sheep

With a grin, with a chip on the shoulder
My head's in my feet
There's a crawling king snake in the grass
It's hiding, it's waiting for you

You're the face that hangs over my sleep
You're that place where I count all my sheep
Track Name: Rest
Rest (Pushing Up Daisies)

Close your eyes and push through the smoke
The other side waits, breathe it in and choke
Live with this, all of that disbelief
Look at him now, he's holding all his grief
A gravestone with a mouthful of words
Just try and rest your nerves

Close your eyes and push through the smoke
The other side waits, breathe it in and choke
We're all part of the same fiber
We're all thirty coins of silver
A gravestone, forever with words
Just try to rest your nerves
Track Name: Land Softly
Land Softly (Fright)

You don’t go away, you’re a part of me
And when you fly, be sure you land softly
You are in my head and you’re moving fast
I must be calm and wait for this to pass

Bad dreams come true
Demons in you

Stress in your eyes
Bugs crawl inside
I’m spinning away
There has got to be an easier way

I don’t do a thing ‘cause my hands are tied
I’m turning into the man that I despise
It don’t go away, it’s a part of me
And when I fly, be sure I land softly
