Track Name: You Gave Me Soul
You gave me flesh
You gave me bones
You gave me reason
You gave me soul
You gave me love
You gave me home
You gave me feelings
You gave me hope

Of all that I can be, what's the reason?
I can taste a smell and see, what's the reason?
I can feel the need to be, what's the reason?
I can hear your voice in me, what's the reason?
Track Name: Invisible
Born to live in a weakened state
His heart's divided and life's at stake

He just failed, he's not feeling sound
His face smiles but his eyes do frown


Promises don't do a thing
They only sting him when he gives in

Stubborn child of another age
He knows he'll make it here soon.. one day..

Track Name: Where Is Time?
Who knows what's happening?
Questions surge

Time heals everything,
but where is time?
Track Name: Imperfection
When I was born
I took a bite of earth
and spit it out at once

An overwhelming sense of fear
Nobody cares
I'm only one

I couldn't help the thought of being
so I went with it
For many years
that haunting feeling

Deep in the past
live all the answers
to everything that's gone wrong

It's in the air
in people's eyes
a constant truth
under the Sun

Including me, I'm also one
Cos I went with it
For many years
that haunting feeling
Track Name: A Prisoner In Me
If you could reason I would ask you why
you follow me and yet you seem to hide

I want to know but I can't find you
I only find you in her eyes

You're a prisoner in me
a constant tickle inside me

and I like it
