The Split 03:28
It's the split and the difference It's the give and the take It's the love and the longing It's the heart and the break Of the mind and the body It's the truth in taste It's a life that's worth living It's a soul to be saved Come back back baby, fill my heart up half half way I'm so proud of you, living free and unafraid You've got that sparkle, don't you ever every change And as you're growing, know that I am watching over And I, I need your balance, to feel whole Chorus continued: We had to drop it, but I know we'll be okay

Thank You 03:23
Almost moved back to Carolina and gave up on my life But you saved, oh you gave me, Friendship in disaster, a spiral down so dark But you saved me, oh you gave me When I look back on it now, it echoes in my heart You held me up from the start, your friendship means it all I fell down, so far, you were strong, your presence calm and so I thank you, your friendship means it all You gave me shelter, from a storm A stable place, that kept my heart warm I almost lost it so I'm saying in a song That I thank you, oh I praise you, your friendship means it all Your friendship means it all

Warfare has lost it's glamour What follows super power? The arms of victory will hand us over into danger Unpredictable violence Inspires deadly silence Desperate social science blow up in the media Will blow up in the media Will blow up in the media Predictions of the future Automatic procedure Hypnotic mind effects are Screaming in the darkest hour Biological weakness Establish revolution Pull down the obstacles and Feel the fever of expansion Warfare has lost its glamour What follows super power Te arms of victory will blow up in the media Will blow up in the media Will blow up in the media It's these reflections, these reflections, these reflections, these reflections....

In Your Eyes 04:46
In your eyes I see a closing door In your eyes, reflections blue amor In your eyes, a whisper takes me back In your eyes, I wait for you to act You break down to the sound of my voice And cast your gaze to the floor Are you sure? In your eyes Say what's more In your eyes In your eyes I fall into the floor In your eyes you hide away what's more In your eyes the Winter feels so warm Big surprise, I lose myself once more And so my body cries I'd give you whatever you want I'm all yours In your eyes Say what's more In your eyes
