Track Name: All I Want
All I Want... Is another piece of you
I'm not looking for money
I'm not looking for fame
Am I looking for something?
Do I want you to blame
All I want... Is a piece of you boy
I'm not looking to hurt you
I don't need to feel shame
Am I looking for something?
Do I need you to blame?

Am I looking for you boy?
Am I looking for me/peace?
Am I looking to hurt you?
Is that something for me?

I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I just need you to stay

I can't keep falling in love with you
Feels like flying
I can't keep falling in love with you
Feels like dying
Track Name: Icarus
So what, if I'm the cautionary tale
So cooler heads, some day they may prevail
As hubris is a deadly sin, a sin producer
And if, a man, in circumstances like
Phaethon, needs confirmation, why
Even gods of prophecy can't change the future

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

So when, in all your loves and lives and hurts
In places where you're served your just deserts
Can it be pain beyond belief that gives us meaning?
Or will you try, though it's a grim mistake
To take your bow and steal that piece of cake
That was a lie, you know, Marie, there is no such thing

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

And who, if all these consequences bring
To be the prince or Minotaur or King
Can it be said the same of things that steal their seeming?
Or see, this time, we never had a choice
Like little frogs still hopping (hoping) for a voice
What is a myth, a story told of morals gleaming...

And Icarus rose like the Phoenix
And flow his way to hell
He said, "My life, it now has meaning...
And mama, it's just as well."

Yes mama, you know, it's just as well.
Track Name: Fool
Lost Love
Never really had it but it
Ghosts on
People think it's there
Not love
Didn't really happen but I
Think you
Were trying to take it there
It wasn't really there


For I am a Fool
And I can feel you waiting here
I am a Fool
And I can't love you more
Don't let those
Words come out your mouth
Don't know
What I would do then
We both know
Chance is slim to none that
I could
Change the way I am
It's not the way I am

For I am a Fool
And I can feel you waiting here
I am a Fool
Cause I can't love you more

I know you’d never hurt me
I know you’d not desert me
But I can’t love you more
I am a Fool
I am a Fool
I can’t love you more

So let go
Find another love
I am
Such a waste of time
Don't know
Why I can't love you
Just know
You're not of my kind
Maybe I am blind

And I am a Fool
'Cause I can leave you waiting here
I am a Fool
For I can't love you more
Track Name: Goldilocks and the Fortress
You left your simple breakfast
Your city in a jar
You did not use your giant key
-You didn't go too far
You left your frozen wasteland
To fly around the world
Came back to find your gate unlocked
And perfumed, with a girl...

Who's been sitting in your chair?
Viewing crystals in your lair...
Pressing buttons in your head...
Who's been lying in your bed?

Goldilocks - in your Fortress of Solitude
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...

The secrets you're concealing
from villains who would try
to breach your inner sanctum
destroy what's kept inside
You know for every man of action
A Cage of Steel around his heart
There is a woman with a blowtorch
To cut him apart

Who's been sitting in your chair?
Taking crystals from your lair?
Pressing buttons in your head?
Who's been lying in your bed?

Goldilocks - in your Fortress of Solitude
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...

Forest or Frozen wasteland
Nursery Wall or Justice Hall
Are you sure you like to be alone?
What other lies have you been told?

Who's been sleeping in your bed? (Is what you feel)
Pressing buttons in your head? (even real?)
Who's been sleeping in your bed? (Is there something)
Pressing buttons in your head? (she tried to tell you?)

Goldilocks (nursery wall)
- in your Fortress of Solitude (justice hall)
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...
Track Name: Drive
It's been time, you know it's true
No one could tell this any better than you
So get a bag, and pack your things
Think of your future, not his broken wings
So get yourself in a car, and drive, baby, drive
You're better off this way, without the strain of goodbye
He comes to bed, when it turns light
And you can't face another empty night
You've had enough of moving slow
There's more to life than wondering when to go
So get yourself in a car, and drive, baby, drive
You're better off this way, without the strain of goodbye
Oh when you hold so tight to nothing, never gets you anywhere
If he can't show he loves you by this time, why should you care?
You gave so many chances, and he threw them all away
Well, loneliness is better than the pain you have today....
And get yourself in a car - drive, baby, drive
We're better off this way, we've got the strength for goodbye
So get yourself in a car, and drive, baby, drive
You're better off this way, you've got the strength for goodbye.
