Track Name: Obsession Never Sleeps (Radio Edit)
Driving anywhere, just anywhere to get there
Asleep at the wheel with one eye wide awake

The moon’s well into its dream
As I ride inside a fuelled blood stream
Anywhere at anytime it thrives on
Filling my empty side

Unable to rest
Unwilling to stay behind
Insisting you take it everywhere
Like a cancerous cry

I adore you. It’s you that I idolize
I’ll live and die for you
As we strive for the morning’s high

Obsession never sleeps
You wake with it caressing your cheek
Just how can you ignore
The one thing you would die for?

You’re my enemy, my saviour
And my ever ruling dictator
That summons my thoughts towards
My infatuation

But a fatal fate awaits the greedy hand
Who’s bullied alone night and day
By their own demands

I adore you. It’s you that I idolize
I’ll live and die for you
And kill for the evening’s high
But it will never be the happiness you once had
Track Name: The Man Who Had Everything (Acoustic Version)
Long and cold breathe the nights
This sacred bin is our TV for the night
The flames swallow all that we discard
Thrown amongst the burnable
Are the stories many tell to warm the eyes
And hearts of the starved
The new fish on the line reels in
And wants to know about the man who
Had everything in the palm of his hand
But then lost it all
Cause the whirlwind of his greed
Swept away the only love he had

The cold exposed my battle scars
The nights unfolded feeding hearts
Of strangers who were eager to believe
But I can never find a way
Of shedding light on the darkest days
So I’ll just sit here waiting for you
I’ll just sit here hungry for you

As the glowing embers shield the frost
And the bitterness hits our silhouettes
My mouth is the only thing that thaws
From the heated angry sorry tales
That resonate this hollow empty jail
Never finding the door cause
Somebody stole the light from me
And I couldn’t see
There was no end in sight for me
To escape this criminal embrace
So now I melt in the arms of a fire that’s dying

The cold exposed my battle scars
The nights unfolded feeding hearts
Of strangers who were eager to believe
But I can never find a way
Of shedding light on the darkest days
So I’ll just sit here waiting for you
I’ll just sit here hungry for you
Track Name: Walking Home In The Rain (Acoustic Version)
Walking home in the rain
These sullen city lights ingrained
In my rooted heart that always jump-starts
It’s barely beating

She pierced like the rising sun
As my dead end feelings became overrun
Like a wild flame’s undying blaze
Arousing my brain
I remembered

This could be the night
That shines a flashlight into my grave
She works her way inside
As the search for life ups the game
As the explosion of emotion
Blows the notion that I’m dead inside
I retaliate against the life
That hid the key and locked me up inside

Pining eyes greet the daylight scared
I dreamt of nothing as my hunger for you wept
Don’t starve the morning of last night’s memory
Cause the greed overwhelms for her

Can I be your endless thought somehow?
Cause I’ve traded all of mine for yours now
This is our beginning from an ending paralysed
That’s growing under sullen city lights
You have me solely

I’ll suffocate this city
Just so we can breathe in all the life
In the explosion of emotion I’m the drug
To take away your pain
But I never want to be the overdose
That becomes way too much to take

As we’re walking home in the rain
I’ll love you until the end and beyond…
