Track Name: Fragile
Disguises are your way of life
Conceal the storm behind your eyes
Pieces of you make their presence known

Always victim and slave to
All the things that seem to make you
Reveal a face that’s not quite your own

You hold it in
It screams aloud
You try so hard to shut it out
The rage remains
You won’t let it go

Your heart is the home
Cold and all alone
Your heart is now the home
Of your fragile state of being

Caught in a wave of pain and sin
On your knees, begging for the end
Nothing left to do but close your eyes

How long will you let it beat you?
Rob your will and slowly eat at you?
Take my hand and let me help you fight

You hold it in
It screams aloud
You try so hard to shut it out
The rage remains
You won’t let it go

Your heart is the home
Cold and all alone
Your heart is now the home
Of your fragile state of being
Track Name: Purge
Come take this venom from my soul
Tear from my heart this cancerous mold
Separate from me this vile being
Leave no trace of this vile me

Away with darkness, away with doubt
The rage still tempts me
Purge from me all that needs to be

Take me from this carnal drive
Harvest my gaze from tainted skies
Expel the virus destroying me
Leave no trace of this vile me

Away with darkness, away with doubt
The rage still tempts me
Purge from me all that needs to be
Track Name: Drift
A certain division of synergy
A conflicting ideal to bear
Left to the right of a middling nation
Searching for a moment to care

Like taking a life for convenience
Yet giving a killer reprieve
Or swaying from love to outrage
(Come away, come away, drift away)
Forced by the line you believe

Tearing from the hollow
Release the shackled mind
Cut a path to follow
You might like what you find

Resisting the charms of Goliath
Or righteous, indignant mules
Its easy to forget the train of thought
It all comes down to you

So give it a chance to sink in
And cure the fell disease
Rise above the chorus of them
(Come away, come away, drift away)
Its a droning, mindless sea

Tearing from the hollow
Release the shackled mind
Cut a path to follow
You might like what you find
Track Name: Formula Rock Song #1
This is the part with just the guitar
While we wait on the bass and drums
I'll sing of loving you from afar
Wait - here they come in now

Ian and Scott are on a roll
As we hit the half-time break
The chorus lets you know

He can't see what I see
Whenever I'm around you
When you breathe, it fills me
Just like a moment in the sun
It's formula rock song #1

The second verse is the same three chords
A little different from the first
In your eyes, I see so much more
Than "I just want to be friends"

He'll never love you the way I do
As we hit the half-time break
The chorus lets you know

He can't see what I see
Whenever I'm around you
When you breathe, it fills me
Just like a moment in the sun
It's formula rock song #1

This is the quiet part
Where I find strength to tell you
I want you, I need you, I love you
I love you

He can't see what I see
Whenever I'm around you
When you breathe, it fills me
Just like a moment in the sun
It's formula rock song #1
