SkinsBeneath the tatteredtoiled trend,beneath the appearanceof all skins,quakes the coreto the questionof life,what do wetruly sacrifice?Whether it bea friendor a foe,beneath the surfacethere is a low,the low stretchesfrom your heartto the thoughtsin your soul.Beneath the torn,scarred skins,we all carrypainful, lowsins,although,you may notunderstandthe pain,the regret and shame,this is you,the who,the are.these skinsare yourstarnished,torn,split andraw,these skinsare yoursuntil you're deadand gone.
Into The DarkWhen light fades to dark,a hush comes over the world.The grass no longer sways,the world no longer praysThe birds no longer sing,the dreamers no longer dreamand I no longer believe,when light fades into dark.
ClearlyWhen my world crashed down,My heart fell with it,and it became clear.When your arms reached out towards me,my hands returned the favor,and it all became clear.when my lips met yours,I became enchanted,and it all became clear.when your hugs blanketed me,my broken heart was mended,and it all became clear.I love you.
I can'tyou hurt my heart,you disappointed my soul,You broke my trust,I just don't knowif I can love you,anymore.I tried to care,I tried to improve,I tried to be perfect,I just don't knowif I can love you,anymore.
HIGHworld flippedlike a dimetopples over andover againthrough thegalaxy racingthrough the starsand pastthe moon,kind of high.
Remember when I said?in the depthsof my mind,I don't worryabout little things.I will alwaysthink out loud,I will preachlove and peace.to be happyyou must venture,always keep yourhead up high.and when lifefalls down hill,never forget i'mby your side.
Be asBe as aware of the darkas the stars in the sky,Be as strong as a knotas the shoes that you tie,Be as caring as a motherwho nourished you to life,Be as calm as the oceanwith a low summer tide,Be as creative as a childas you go on a life time of rides.
PapercutA cut-out of a jagged heartCuts deep into my finger.Why must doing nice thingsbring me pain that lingers?
A Pre-DreamYour arms wrapped around mestretching for what seems like miles.You grip the flannel around meI search deep into your soulas I lay a kiss upon your neck.Your hands now rest flaton the small of my back.Chills dance to the tip of my spineas you kiss my lipstime stops for you and I.we hold eachother closewith hearts so weightless and light,I dream of drifting far awayas you whisper these words,"I love you, and good night."
I know who I amThey say that I'm a coverup,for who I wanna be.but the truth is,I'm just being me,I'm being free,I'm spreading peace.
