Track Name: Sarah
sarah, i'm afraid
of everything i've done
and you're the only one
who listens
who comprehends me at all
and they don't know

sarah, i'm alone
i'm sure you figured but i thought i'd let you know
i broke
and sarah, give me time
i know you're right for me but i'm
shackled down and tied

sarah, i know it's hard to trust me now
my impulsive brain has lead you astray again
sarah, i've gone too long belittling who i am
now i'm haunted by the things that could've been
i'm haunted by the things that could've been
Track Name: Intermission
it's alright
no, it's okay
don't let them fool ya
with what they say
it's alright
no it's okay
slow it down some
there's enough day
to go around

we'll keep on waiting [x4]

it's alright (it's alright)
it's okay (it's okay)
don't let me fool ya (let me fool ya)
with my dismay
'cause if it's one thing
that's here to stay
it's alright
it's okay...kay
it's okay...kay
Track Name: Stephen
eyes wide, eyes wide
and filled up like lead
consumed by, consumed by
the pictures in your head,
i could call you, could call you,
could call you but i know,
you're flying high like a rocket
to the moon instead

you haven't aged a day
have you drugged the pain away?

you're caught in the crossfire
of what you held dear
and the lovers and family
are choking back tears
for the man that they love
with the shit-eating grin
saying nothing is wrong
nothing's wrong again

you haven't aged a day
have you drugged the pain away?
and though i'll miss the times we've had
i don't understand you

i'm thinking that i might
take my friends advice
and for you, my dear uncle
i'd say it counts twice
he said you can't fix stupid
or reason with crazy
and you seem like both
seem like both to me

you haven't aged a day
have you drugged the pain away?
and though i'll miss the times we've had
i don't understand you
and though i'll miss you man
quite frankly, i don't understand you
i don't understand you [x3]
Track Name: Serenity
sweet serenity
i should hope you see
the best in me
and let your presence be
a reflecting pool
casting light through me
but i thought i'd let you know

that if you should deny me
then i'll still feel the same
happy just to know your name

diamond in the rough
have you had enough
all covered up?
'cause you're not fooling me
you ain't all what you seem
you beautiful tease

so if you should deny me
then i'll still feel the same
happy just
oh so happy just

happy just [x3]
