VERSE 1 hey love you're the one i'm thinkin of you so unafraid gonna set the world on fire between us hey now i know what let's talk it out you just don't understand i been waiting all night long for this and CHORUS for the rest of my days i swear i'll never want for the blood that we share in a way i'm afraid that you will feel the same and i say.. hey baby yeah you'll know my name and i know what you're gonna say VERSE 2 our time is a wastin valentine let's take it all the way gonna show you how I feel just now and reasons come and go but feelings never feel the same and somethin always gets in my way BREAKDOWN we talked a while just on the phone wait for the time to say i'm alone your voice an echo in mind god give me strength to take what's mine and i will take my time

VERSE 1 Dear god you wasted my time Will I never know? On my own Are you in mind? When I close my eyes she is all I see Will you make her mine if I say I believe? CHORUS No matter how I try I can't let you go I will never make it alone My innocence is gone And I have lost control All I ever wanted to know Was she ever really in love? VERSE 2 So much I keep hid inside Until I cannot breathe All I know She means everything And for the 100th time I will make you see And for the 1000th time we will make believe
3.
VERSE 1 I may be a world away But I remember everything A kiss in the parking lot It took all the strength I've got I can't take another day now The pain won't go away And I have got to say CHORUS She's my fantasy Everything to me Kept alive by a rock and roll machine I'm on bended knee I can not believe Still alive in a rock and roll machine And I hide my eyes VERSE 2 When I'm on my back I see Take all the time I need A kiss underneath my skin The place where we begin Only you can do what you do Moving just the way that you do And I can only say BREAKDOWN Now I can hardly Get what you need I know that there's another way When there's nothing to it But to do it We're gonna find it someday

VERSE 1 when you gave to me a secret to keep i never felt so loved but what does it mean when secrecy is all we know CHORUS I see nothing and no one i feel only what I want nobody wants us to suffer why do you do this to yourself VERSE 2 a broken belief the last of its kind we are what's left behind are we what we seem or just half asleep i closed my eyes BREAKDOWN easily i push you aside every time that i feel like i change my mind i believe you're the enemy the only one i despise this is only an in between world they say but i do not believe what i cannot see every now and then i ask my self why must i always be right

VERSE 1 For 40 days and 40 nights I have wandered through the desert for you whatever you want me to do It's in my eyes, the way I feel I could never keep the truth from you You can see right through BRIDGE I waited for so long now Don't tell me what I cannot do So much to prove CHORUS This is my testimony of all I see You cannot take it from me but I believe What say, what I know changes me I will not ever go back but I now know I'll never be alone VERSE 2 Innocence is where you hide All the pain that you don't want me to see But I could never believe

VERSE 1 One more night and I'll be home One last time before I'm gone Will you even know my face? Or have I become the one that you replaced? CHORUS 1 And all I found When I lie awake at night From the pain of a broken life I can hear my future calling baby Can you hear it too? VERSE 2 The only place that I have known And the only bed I call my own Will I see you again? And all I need is forgiveness for my sin BREAKDOWN All my life I've Never felt like it was really mine VERSE 3 One more night another road And another town I do not know CHORUS 3 When we're holding each other tight And we're safe from the world outside I can hear my future calling baby Can you hear it too?
7.
VERSE 1 Foolish little girl you won't be saved Feeling like I never felt this way All the way to the bottom of the sea I believe God will take away all of my pain BRIDGE Now all my enemies have been forgiven Will I finally find what I've waited for? CHORUS I'm gonna make you mine I'm gonna mess you up I'm gonna take you down I'm gonna show you love VERSE 2 Waiting by the telephone for you Easily I could find somebody new Secrecy I will take it to my grave Sadness that will never ever go away VERSE 3 Lying in the cradle of your arms Mystery just another broken heart Dying what happens when I close my eyes? I'm flying underneath the darkest of the skies

VERSE 1 Is it enough for me to say I never felt that way You can meet my only need Lie to me so I believe The secrets that we keep The truth is never what it seems CHORUS Come on baby don't be shy I won't hurt you I will treat you so kind If you never tell me why Girl believe me I will fall to pieces Back together I've been waiting Now forever VERSE 2 We get rough when we play It never goes my way I give up so easily When I face all my fears I will keep you near You're strong as I could never be
9.
VERSE 1 My Saturday night angel Your bleeding heart will never mend No matter what you do to it Do you remember the falling stars when Every wish we made came true And honesty could never lose CHORUS In between you and me Emptiness is all we see Will you wonder what became of me? And I believe all I need Is somebody just like me Who will share with me my misery VERSE 2 The tiniest of secrets A promise whispered in your ear A single word to ease your fear I'm gonna make my own religion I want a god without a plan We're victims of your circumstance
10.
VERSE 1 Can you see what I see The colors dancing in my eyes Lying flat on my back I can almost touch the starry sky Do I have what I need or will I be searching my whole life Finally I believe In the virtues of a sacrifice CHORUS Dying for your love Do you ever think of me? Blood is everything Lies are not enough To show you what cannot be see Was it all a dream? Easily we fall into the night VERSE 2 Faith won't keep me alive Yeah the angels I heard whispering I'm faking when I cry Yeah a thousand cuts won't make bleed
11.
VERSE 1 hey love you're the one i'm dreamin of you so unafraid gonna set the world on fire between us hey now i know what let's talk it out you just don't understand i been waiting all night long for this and CHORUS for the rest of my days i swear i'll never want for the blood that we share in a way i'm afraid that you will feel the same and i say.. hey baby yeah you'll know my name and i know what you're gonna say VERSE 2 our time is a wastin valentine let's take it all the way gonna show you how I feel just now and reasons come and go but feelings never feel the same and somethin always gets in my way BREAKDOWN we talked a while just on the phone wait for the time to say i'm alone your voice an echo in mind god give me strength to take what's mine and i will take my time

about

A radical shift in style and direction, this record is the result of Alan Slimak’s return to to the band on drums and a more refined and immediate approach to songwriting. The music is loud, but delicate, and each song is an entire world of its own. From the catchy opener, “Feel the Same” to the epic closer, “Into the Night,” it is clear that this collection of songs is unlike anything the band has ever recorded.

The drums were recorded by Mark Reiter of the Daycare Swindlers at a warehouse in Northern Virginia. Everything else was recorded by RCR at their own private studio. Mark Reiter also mastered the record. The artwork was created by Gregor Koerting of SPECTERY.
