Track Name: I Just Don't Know
Humanity takes its toll
Assigning yet another boring roll
Actors in a tragedy
With the same old ending

My colors are faintly fading away
Until I disappear
Dancing circles around the answer
To the question no one dares to ask

I just don't know
Who I'm trying to fool
I just don't know
What I'm trying to prove

As the choir sings their tune
Silence slowly fills the room
No one dares to sing along
When they're always in the wrong

Juliette at the windowsill
Romeo is nowhere to be found
Juliette slowly gets the chills
From her head to the ground

I just don't know
Who I'm trying to fool
I just don't know
What I'm trying to prove

Where art thou Romeo?
I just don't know
Where art thou Romeo?
I just don't know
Track Name: Alameda
I won't fall for your dirty tricks
There's a wall built between me and you
I'll break it down, if it's the last thing that I do
I'm breaking down, just invisible to you

The world is spinning round and round
I see you darling, crying out
Wait for me at Alameda

Beautiful, promise you won't change
Close my eyes, just to hear your name

The world is spinning round and round
I see you darling, crying out
Wait for me at Alameda
Track Name: Shanty Town
Wandering around this town
Looking for something that just can't be found
Everything's out of place
I'm just passing through without leaving any trace
It's slowly closing in
As the lights start to dim
They peer out from behind the veil
At me walking down the trail
I packed my problems for the night
To stop the riots in my mind
I someday hope
To find a way to cope
But I wont, no no no
Dealt a hand that I can't fold
My face is straight, my eyes show no sign
It's aces high, and I am low
Now I'm finally good to go
Good to go

Just promise me you'll me find a solid state of mind
Between me and you, there's nothing else to hide
Track Name: Come What May
It's not the way you move
I've only watched you for a while
Although nothing is certain, come what may
Climb over this scene and see
It's clear why you're alone
Your cold shoulder is what
Keeps your dreams afloat

All these thoughts keep closing in
Devising a plan for an escape
Up in smoke, gone in a flash

Constantly causing a clamor
You really ought to keep it down
Sporting a look of dismay
Frozen in fear
Fight off the enemy
To earn a badge of false identity
Is this who you are now?

All these thoughts keep closing in
Devising a plan for an escape
Up in smoke, gone in a flash
