Track Name: Onward and Upward
Intro
V1
Remember all the things of why you loved them
Day by day the slipping back will move you forward
Take the time to ease the pain that fills the place where they once were

PC1
It's alright not knowing what to say in this fog that fills the air
Now we rise…

C1
Onward and Upward
You rise Onward and Upward
We rise Onward and Upward

V2
Echoes of you will last the rest of my days
Appreciate the memories of love's moments past
To feel your softness, take comfort in your scent

PC2
And wrap the sound of your voice around my heart.
Now we rise…

C2
Onward and Upward
You rise Onward and Upward
We rise Onward and Upward

BRIDGE
The song I sing is you here with me, here with me

PC3
Now we rise…

You rise Onward and Upward
We rise Onward and Upward

Track Name: Fake It
Fake It

Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you want to
Oh, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you must believe
So, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you have to
Oh, Fake Fake Fake Fake it like you always do

So stitch me up
And push the needle through
Inject me with your poison won’t you

Every week you go out
Wearing what you do
Trying to fit into this human zoo

So, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you want to
Oh, Take Take Take Take it if you must believe
So, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you have to
You, Make Make Make Make it like always do

So, drink my potion
And feel it flowing through
Your body starts to move
Like I never thought I knew

Now the games must begin
As I race through my sin
Only to come up dead last
As her tease will always win

Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you want to
Oh, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you must believe

So, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you have to
Oh, Take Take Take Take it like you always do
So, Fake Fake Fake Fake it if you want to
Oh, Take Take Take Take it if you must believe
So…
Track Name: Out of the Dark
Out of the Dark

Lie awake undone
Open cards on the table
With your back against the wall

Hide it all away
Waiting on a miracle
To come and break your fall

It’s not as hard as it may seem
I want to hold you near to me

Out of the Dark you find yourself in all the scars
Rising out of the past and knowing who you are
Out of the Dark you learn to live and love again
Facing the truth you thought that never could have been

Trapped inside your shell
Can’t tell what’s reality
Feels like the end is here right now

Fearing life is hell
Believe in impossible
It’s alright to say goodbye

It’s only time ’til it’s but a dream
Now let it go and begin with me

Out of the Dark you find yourself in all the scars
Rising out of the past and knowing who you are
Out of the Dark you learn to live and love again
Facing the truth you thought that never could have been
Out of the Dark
Out of the Dark
Out of the Dark
You will see
What is just meant to be
Track Name: Full Moon
FULL MOON

Rising up beside the world tonight
I feel you so electric in the sky
With final touches I'm about to ride
Looking for that something in your eye

He’s lookin’ around for you lady
To fall in love with him maybe
You’re gonna get high til you’re crazy
We’re gonna get high til we’re crazy
Full Moon
Full Moon

The tide comes in and we begin to fly
I touch your skin you invite me inside
Take me now, I'll show you how to love
Away we go in a hazy glow so alive

You’re gonna get high til you’re crazy
We’re gonna get high til we’re crazy
Full Moon
Full Moon

On your way
On your way

Full Moon
Full Moon
Full Moon
Full Moon
Track Name: Faint of Heart
FAINT OF HEART by Graham Czach

Riddled with fury of love for lust
Our bones ache to return to dust
Screwing away the passions down below
Becoming an open theater sex show
You can't look away or close your eyes
You must witness the events of our demise
Tunnel in your brain to hide your pain
No time to waste, to lack, look back
The world is a movie, a work of art
Not for the Faint of Heart

Chasing shadows cast up on the wall
Our looking glass in this endless hall
The ruling body, the nameless shark
Will swallow you whole, your screen goes dark
You can't look away or close your eyes
You must witness the events of our demise
Not for the Faint of Heart

Tunnel in your brain to hide your pain
No time to waste, to lack, look back
The world is a movie, a work of art
Not for the Faint of Heart
Faint of Heart
Tunnel in your brain to hide your pain
No time to waste, to lack, look back
The world is a movie, a work of art
Not for the Faint of Heart
Faint of Heart
Not for the Faint of Heart
Faint of Heart

The world is a movie, a work of art
The world is a work of art, work of art
The world is a movie, a work of art
The world is a work of art, work of art
Faint of Heart, faint of heart
Work of art, work of art
Faint of heart, faint of heart
Not for the faint of heart
Work of art, work of art
Faint of heart
Track Name: Storybook of Lies
Storybook of Lies by Graham Czach

Waking up to the sound
Of this voice in my mind

The winding storybook
Becomes a web of deceit

Telling me what to say
Even though,
It's not what happened that day

My storybook is full
Yet I have more stories to tell
To cover up the ones
Where I almost fell

These tales of greatness
Make me bold
As the truth comes to unfold

I'm left alone
In a lake of despair
Sinking deeper
Without a hope of repair

My storybook is full
Yet I have more stories to tell
To cover up the ones
Where I almost fell

Now is the time
The change has come
I'm tearing out the pages
And burning them one by one.

My storybook is full
Yet I have more stories to tell
To cover up the ones
Where I almost fell

The power behind the words I have to believe
Disappears with my innocence while I convince others what is real
Track Name: Star by Star
Star by Star

Looking up as Orion smiles down 

Our backs pressed against the ground
Whisper in my ear, telling me what I want to hear 

Dispelling me of all my fear

I hear a song begin to start

To the beat of your heart 

Telling of the love that we are 

Counting star by star

Stuck together by force of gravity

Surrender to the world we see

Lying under the dark nights sky 

Letting life go by

I hear a song begin to start

To the beat of your heart
Telling of the love that we are 

Counting star by star

You can only ever do your best
To live life and pass loves test

Holding your hand gazing at the stars

I am Earth and I've found my Mars
Stuck together by force of gravity

Surrender to the world we see

Lying under the dark nights sky

Letting life go by
