Track Name: Waiting For The Sun
Verse 1:
Dark clouds are hovering above
These days trouble fits me like a glove

Verse 2:
Took a dive down into the pits
I can only take so many hits

Pre-Chorus:
But I refuse to concede
To this state of misery

Chorus:
I'm waiting for the sun
I wonder if it will ever come
I'm lookin' for a brighter day
Til then I'll be on my knees to pray (Repeat)
For the sun

Verse 3:
I’m trying to stay optimistic
Hope I don’t manage to go ballistic

Verse 4:
Lately I've been feeling estranged
Tried to resist the feeling hasn't changed

Pre-Chorus:
But I refuse to give in
I fight the doubt within

Chorus:
I'm waiting for the sun
I wonder if it will ever come
I'm lookin' for a brighter day
Til then I'll be on my knees to pray (Repeat)
For the sun

Bridge:
Drenched in the rain - it’s pouring out
It’s lead me to a different kind of drought
Trapped underneath - this dismal weather
Please don’t let this last forever

Chorus:
I'm waiting for the sun
I wonder if it will ever come
I'm lookin' for a brighter day
Til then I'll be on my knees to pray
I'm waiting for the sun
I wonder if it will ever come
I'm lookin' for a brighter day
I think I just caught a glimpse of a ray
Hello sun
Track Name: Wasn't Meant To Be
Verse 1:
I think that I'm beginning to lose my connection with you
Just like a telephone that's busy
I can't seem to ever get through
What to do?

Verse 2:
Why is it so hard to be open and sincere?
I just find it so uneasy - telling the truth when you’re near
it’s becoming clear

Chorus:
'Cause I've been thinking a lot these days
And it's time we go our separate ways
But don't think you did anything wrong
And I'm hoping that you'll stay strong
'Cause it's probly gonna hurt for a while
But there's use in being in denial
See, It just wasn't meant to be - you and me

Verse 3:
I need someone to challenge my thinking - How do you feel?
All we ever say is small talk - this shallow conversation doesn't appeal
I need real

Verse 4:
I think that I’m beginning to fall out of love with you
The passion I once had is gone - I can’t feel those feelings I once knew
Sad but true

Chorus:
'Cause I've been thinking a lot these days
And it's time we go our separate ways
But don't think you did anything wrong
And I'm hoping that you'll stay strong
'Cause it's probly gonna hurt for a while
But there's use in being in denial
See, It just wasn't meant to be - you and me

Bridge:
And I feel so alone - when we're together
feel so alone - when we're together
feel so alone - when we're together
I feel so - I feel so - I feel so
I feel so alone - when we're together
feel so alone - when we're together
feel so alone - when we're together
I feel so - I feel so - I feel so -
I feel so - alone

Bridge 2:
I used to think the worst thing that could happen to me was to end up on my own
Now I know the worst thing that could happen to me is to end up with someone who makes me feel alone

Chorus:
'Cause I've been thinking a lot these days
And it's time we go our separate ways
But don't think you did anything wrong
And I'm hoping that you'll stay strong
'Cause it's probly gonna hurt for a while
But there's use in being in denial
See, It just wasn't meant to be - you and me

Wasn't meant to be
Track Name: Forever Alone
Verse 1:
Surrounded by silence - and I’m finding it deafening
My world has gone awry

Verse 2:
I can't help but feel - this emptiness inside
Am I dead or am I alive?

Chorus:
And lately - I've been wanderin' through these empty spaces
Lately - I've been trapped within these lonely places
Am I forever alone?
Is this really how the story goes?
Am I forever alone?
The only other voice I can hear is my echo

Verse 3:
Engulfed by the stillness - No other signs of life
And time is frozen

Verse 4:
I think that I'm lost - in a world of solitude
It’s clear I’m broken

Chorus:
And lately - I've been wanderin' through these empty spaces
Lately - I've been trapped within these lonely places
Am I forever alone?
Is this really how the story goes?
Am I forever alone?
The only other voice I can hear is my echo

Bridge:
Hey - Hey - Is there anybody out there?
Hey - Hey - Does anybody care?
Hey - Hey - Is there anybody out there?
Hey - Hey - Does anybody care?
Track Name: Plastic Man
Verse 1:
Plastic man - in a plastic ocean
Swimmin’ in a sea of counterfeit emotion
Clings to a notion - that all he sees
Is all there is and all that there will ever be

Verse 2:
Plastic man - in a plastic field
A thousand bushels of superficiality it yields
Truth concealed - thinks all is fine
Doesn't realize that his clock is running out of time

Chorus:
Plastic man - what do you feel?
Plastic man - you still haven’t found what’s real

Verse 3:
Plastic man - in a plastic house
Traded his dignity to turn into a spineless louse
Bitterness sprouts - begins to choke
A helpless feeling it is surely to invoke

Verse 4:
Plastic man - in a plastic city
A world where the surface is the only thing that’s pretty
It’s a pity - for it to end this way
But everybody knows that plastic simply melts away

Chorus:
Plastic man - what do you feel?
Plastic man - you still haven’t found what’s real
Plastic man - what do you feel
Plastic man - you still haven’t found what’s real

Instrumental:

Outro:
Plastic man
You’re stuck in a black hole
Plastic man
I pity your acrylic soul
Track Name: Endless Journey
Stanza 1:
Life’s an endless journey - yes it’s true
Life’s an endless journey - for me and you
And you can pick any direction
Doesn’t matter where you strive
You’ll find that you never truly arrive

Stanza 2:
Keep on pushing onward - and you’ll grow
Keep on pushing onward - rain and snow
And you can chase the flaming sun
All around this sphere
The most cherished things are usually found near

Stanza 3:
Follow the winding road - I know it’s hard
Follow the winding road - and travel far
Take care not to lose your step
But it’s okay if you fall
Experience is the best teacher of all

Stanza 4:
Life’s an endless journey - yes it’s true
Life’s an endless journey - for me and you
And you can go most anywhere
Doesn’t matter where you’ve been
The real journey is always the one within
