Track Name: Stay Gold
haunted trees and haunted dreams
dragon hearts and wisdom teeth
i'm a girl with a goal and a heart of gold
look out world here i go

there's a dream
there's a dream
do i dare to follow
do i dare to follow you
do i dare to follow
do i dare

ask me what this life is about I don't even know what to say
everybody is freaking out at least that's what it feels like anyway
they want to control you
won't listen to a word you say
don't let them destroy you they'll leave you hanging on so just run
they'll leave you hanging on so just run away
run run away
never come back again and stay gold
stay gold

my friend thinks the best has come he says he dreams of the good old days
i'll admit it freaks me out that i still kind of feel the same
I won't let them control you
we won't listen to a word you say
I won't let them destroy you and take everything that's in your heart
they'll leave you hanging on so just run
they'll leave you hanging on so just run away
run run away
never come back again

I am young and i am dumb
I am wise but i am wrong
keep me here
stay gold
still naive enough to think i can fulfill my destiny so keep me here
and stay gold

we live in our dreams that's how it should be
Track Name: Dream Crusher
to sleep, perchance to dream again
i am the one who decides my fate
a lust for life that you cannot take
why must you bury me in all your hate

yeah it happens all the time
hey shut up yeah you're messing up my vibe I know exactly what i want
you can't expect me just to wait around
you can't expect me just wait
I will take you down
I will take you down
dream crusher

we are on our own and our futures are so unknown but you will not take us
no matter what you say we're going to have our cake you will not break us
when I'm losing balance hanging by a thread you come and knock me down tell me i mean nothing
yeah it happens all the time
hey shut up yeah you're messing up my vibe
I know exactly what i want
you can't expect me just to wait around
you can't expect me just to wait
I will take you down
i will take you down
dream crusher
Track Name: Seen and Not Heard
you ignored all of the problems
your god is not satisfied
you said you don't want to be like your father
swallowed up in self-righteous pride
because the family was drowning in the house with the columns
your weakness a thorn in my side
i try to understand but i can't
i try to understand but i can't
i try to understand

i used to pray that i could forgive you
as if something was wrong with me
I'm just seen and not heard but i
i want to be
your mouth mouth is full of dirt spit it out before talking to me

lucky to make it out alive
everything looks so different from the other side
because i was blind but now i see the problem; denial
your weakness a thorn in my side
i try to understand

silence can be awfully loud
especially when it's coming out of my mouth
take a look around and you'll find out
hand over mouth
can you hear that sound

I used to pray that i could forgive you
as if something was wrong with me
i'm just seen and not heard but i
i'm going to be
your mouth mouth is full of dirt spit it out before talking to me
i don't want to but i think i hate you
Track Name: Dreams and Other Dead Things
i saw a mermaid lying on the shore
i wasn't sure she wasn't moving anymore
i touched her face
eyes closed
forever sleep
no more
eternal dream
so pure
woefully clean

will i ever find peace of mind
do i have to wait until i die
will i ever find my sleep
will i ever find my dreams and other dead things

i was always certain but i'm not certain anymore
i was always searching but I'm not searching anymore
what's life without a dream
a waste of time and energy
its like a song without a line

will i ever find peace of mind
do i have to wait until i die
will i ever find my sleep
will i ever find my dreams and other dead things

haven't been sleeping
haven't been dreaming for a while
when i wake up i want something to show for it
i'm uninspired
no desire under my eyelids

will i ever find peace of mind
do i have to wait until i die
will i ever find my sleep
will i ever find my dreams and other dead things
Track Name: We Live in Our Dreams
we live in our dreams that's how it should be
hold on to the gold
hold on to the gold
we live in our dreams that's how it should be
that's how it should be
