Track Name: Decision
i cant recall this decision
and if it was made by me
it certainly lacked precision

and i will not yet make
another decision

cause between me
and responsibility
lies a division

and i will not yet make
another decision

next time
my soul has risen
i will remember
i will remember
to listen
Track Name: Cry Longer
i want to cry for a little while longer
although i know i have grown stronger
i can't pretend to play the victim any longer
but i want to cry for a little while longer
for a little while longer
for a little while longer
i want to cry for a little while longer

please believe me when i say
everything
everything will be okay
maybe not today
but one day
maybe not today
but one day, one day, one day

i feel my hair it used to be blonder
when all my hope had yet to be squandered
when all i did was wander
but i want to cry for a little while longer
for a little while longer
i want to cry for a little while longer

please believe me when i say
everything
everything will be okay
maybe not today
but one day
maybe not today
but one day
one day, one day, one day, one day, one day, one day, one day
Track Name: Motherhood
They will raise a race of people
which is quite unbelievable
they will raise a race of people
with a tighter grip than Evil Knievel
they will raise a race of people
they will raise a race of people
of people

you've lost your life to the future life you've made
you've lost your life to the future life you've made
you have prayed for a crusade against the future decades
against the future decades

They are forced to watch the people
to ensure their minds are cerebral
they are forced to watch the people
to ensure their actions aren't unspeakable
they will raise a race of people
they will raise a race of people
of people

you've lost your life to the future life you've made
you've lost your life to the future life you've made
you have prayed for a crusade against the future decades
against the future decades
Track Name: Patience
Patience is a gift when they tell ya
patience is a gift when they tell ya
strike out and you'll know
strike out and you'll glow

strike out and you'll know
strike out and you'll glow
patience is a gift when they tell ya
patience is a gift when they tell ya it is
so it is

if there's one thing i know
and there's only one i thing that i know
its that patience is a gift when they tell ya
patience is a gift when they tell ya it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
so it is
Track Name: Through Time
Lately, the world is nicer than before
i've been wiser than before
i'm not lonely anymore
i've kept my self-doubt at the door

who can say
for sure?
if one can be happy without more
through time i take this tour
through time i take this tour
through time i take this tour

Lately, that grey cast on my mind's shore
of which i've always bore
seems to perish without lure
but i always want to lure
it right back into my core

who can say
for sure?
if one can be happy without more
through time i take this tour
through time i take this tour
through time i take this tour
Track Name: Black and Blue
Black and blue i see you
black and blue i see you

when you come i choose you
when you come i choose you

i'd be right to lose you
i'd be right to lose you

but black and blue i choose you
black and blue i choose you

i choose you
i choose you
i choose you
i choose you

i regret the choice that strained my voice
i regret the shame symbolic of my pain
i regret the storm which is the norm

regret the storm which is the norm
regret the storm which is the norm
regret the storm which is the norm
Track Name: Until Love's a Void
until love's a void you need to fill
until love's a void you need to fill
until love's a void you need to fill
you mean to fill

lost by will
by will
i have no faith you'll find me still
but by will
love's a void i need to fill
love's a void i need to fill

still
still
still
still
still

if i escaped i've had to kill
by will
i have no faith you'll find me still
until

until love's a void you need to fill
until love's a void you need to fill
until love's a void you need to fill
you mean to fill
until
Track Name: Twin Symphony
can't you see?
i encourage codependency
but i like independency
and i like independence, see

i want to be me without the tragedy
i want to be me without the tragedy
without the tragedy

the introduction's the same for us two
whom have nothing to do with the other
i have nothing to do with my brother

i want to be me without the tragedy
i want to be me without the tragedy
without the tragedy

but a jealousy will capture one or the other
and a jealousy will manufacture one or the other
and i believe it started with my brother
and since i haven't had a true lover
a true lover

i want to be me without the tragedy
Track Name: I Would Like to Talk With You Again
I would like to talk with you again
i would feel much better knowing when
i would like to talk with you again
of all the ones i've met you are my favorite of men
you are my favorite of men
you are my favorite of men

there's a rush inside of which i can't explain
its a kind of unbelievable, beautiful pain
there's a rush inside of which i can't explain
its the kind of sorrow which highlights we are not the same
we are not the same

i would like to talk with you again
i would feel much better knowing when
i would like to talk with you again
of all the ones i've met you are my favorite of men
you are my favorite of men
you are my favorite of men

there's the somber realization that with you i'm even more alone
there's the somber realization now a fear of the unknown
now there is the understanding that i can only go home
i can only go home
i can only go home
i can only go home
Track Name: The Self-Realization Fellowship
if i can hear a pin drop then the fire is in my soul
if i can hear a pin drop then the fire is in my soul
the good kind of fire is in my soul
it is in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul

the good kind of fire is in my soul
it is in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul

the good kind of fire is in my soul
it is in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
in my soul
Track Name: An Autobiography
if there are words for you, there are words for me
jealousy, integrity
i don't pretend to know a lot
but i know more than i thought
if i were to live the life i've always wanted
i'd relieve myself of body and mind
i know the point is to be kind
i know the point is to be kind

can you agree that i should be freed?
will you agree that i should be freed?
please agree that i should be freed!
i feel obliged to let you know, i'm worse off than you know

i had my first kiss at nineteen
and i'm waiting for the Guinness book to call me
big ego, low self esteem
so i'll remain disturbed in a lifelong daydream
sometimes i wish to be hospitalized
so i'd never have to socialize

can you agree that i should be freed?
will you agree that i should be freed?
please agree that i should be freed!
i feel obliged to let you know, i'm worse off than you know

if i were to live the life i've always wanted
i'd relieve myself of body and mind
i know the point is to be kind
