Track Name: Ambulances And Roses
Screeching tires, broken glass. One false move will be her last.

Drawn to the blackened night, he never had so much respect for such a beautiful moon light. He reached into his pockets and he pulled out pictures of his dying love. How he loved her so.

As his tears fell. Never will he let her go.

The pictures in his hand. They told a beautiful story, of how their love will never fade. Like petals in the wind, they were destined to be together always.

Red and Blue lights flashing bright. They said she'll never make it through this dark cold night. Lost hope and C.P.R. They said she is gone to far. I'm sorry but shes gone.

He sits alone in frustration. His mind is wondering. Why can't it be me. He falls to his knees, begs forgiveness. Please just take me.
Track Name: True Love feat. Jacque Mendez
This stress. These bills are bringing me down. You look to me. Money can't fix everything but it sure helps. Never wanted any of this. How can we co-exist, when this 9 to 5 brings me down inside.

All I ever wanted was you. (All I want) All I ever needed was you. When I look into your eye I know it's something pure. Our love will never fade away.

Is my true love here tonight. To guide me through these times. These lonely nights when I can't go on. They say you don't know what you have until it's gone. But baby I need your love. Cause I need you.

Hard times have come but I've never seen you fail. We're holding on by threads but we hold on strong. No one knows the cards we're dealt. I'll stick around for something else. This love inside means everything to me.
Track Name: Angel Fire
Falling in the angel fire I will rise up. Like a phoenix taking back all I've lost. (Every fallen ash that has turned to dust) Can you feel this? Can you feel this beat? Heart on fire, angel fire. It can be extinguished. Rebuild what was lost and rise up.

From ash a heart on fire. It's stronger than before. It's burning with desire. From ash something new is born.

Falling in the angel fire I will rise up. Like your Jesus taking back all he's lost.(Every fallen ash that has turned to dust) Can you feel this? Can you feel this beat? Heart on fire, angel fire. It can be extinguished. Rebuild what was lost and rise up.

Broken dreams come crashing down on your head. Bloody egos falling round. What was said. What was lost was never found. You've be lead. The rivers deep your gonna drown. Will turn red.

From ash a heart on fire. It's stronger than before. It's burning with desire. From ash something new is born/stronger than before.
Track Name: Truth or Dare feat. Adrian Estrella
So silently, I walk off into the night. To clear my mind of all these thoughts that have fallen behind. In time i pray to see the light of day. As it comes I fear it has arrived to late.

As the night fades my mind begins to run astray. Darkness consumes my thoughts. My feelings in disarray. As it takes control these windows begin to close. All of my hopes our lost. Subdued to the unknown.

Abruptly, I begin to stray away. From my conscience that has become so taunting. Deliver me from my weakness and despair. A man can only handle so much of life's truth or dare.
Track Name: Trapped
I've been away for some time. You left me here to rot. You said it would be alright. I'm the one time forgot. I'm locked here in your prison. I feel myself decay. I sense there's no rhyme or reason, for why you act this way.

I can hear her call my name. The voice of reason beckons me to stay. I can hear her call my name. I'll fight to stay awake. In hopes that this is just a dream. But I fear it's reality.

I'm trapped here in the darkness, the smell of earth and pine. Was it something that I witnessed. Is this my time to die. Each breath is getting harder. Much harder than the last. No time to beg or barter. This breath may be my last.

I'll break free from this prison. I'll make it out alone. There is no stopping me I won't give in until I've reached my goal. I'll break free from this prison. I'll make it out alone. There is no stopping me I won't give up until I'm finally home.
Track Name: The Burning
These words ignite the candle. Feel the arid breeze upon your face. Do you feel these words are humble? Do you feel I'd be the one to disgrace? These memories slowly fading. Of the ones you chose to leave behind. Your cries celebrating the failure you've tried to confine.

What's left for you now?

What's left but these memories and the acquired taste of kerosene. That entice your lips. Ignite you from within. Gasoline sets a blazing sunset. Feeds the flames of burning regret.

These pages have burnt completely. Do you feel ashamed for what you've done. You've completed the circle. I'm afraid of what you'll become. A sad memory igniting the flames you once cherished and loved. Now you're screaming and fighting to save yourself from being loved.

Can you feel the fire as it burns tonight. Can you feel the fire burning deep inside. Can you feel the fire as it burns tonight. Can you feel the fire comfort us in ash. What's left for us now?
Track Name: A Single Tear
Bound together with and eternal fire that burns florescent white. Its so beautiful. But the fires been laid to rest with tears of colors grey. They make the heart grow cold. Dreams have melted away. Fate has finally died. How my soul has cried.

But in the end. All I have are these lost memories. Painful tears and never ending eulogies. Of a fire so vibrant but now burns so dull. A tear I'd cry for you, never letting go.

Now you walk in the land where dreams last forever. I can still hear you whisper. The sweet sounds of eternity. I sit hear as my soul weeps. I can feel it burn for nightmares to fade. And dreams to embrace. I can still see the silhouette of your face.

I can hear the whispers, all the whispers they sing to me. Smile now cry never.

I cried a single tear. I cried for you. One thousand laughs. One thousand cries. One thousand tears. A thousand goodbyes.
Track Name: Give Me Some Sugar Baby
I've got these feelings deep inside. That I no longer can hide. And I wonder do you feel the same way too? Every time I look at you, you turn away. I think of all the things I'd like to say. I wish I could just show you the truth.

(I'm taking my chance) Tonight's the night, I'm taking my chance. To show you romance. To show you.

I've got the lights down low. Slow music on the radio. Come on baby come a little close. I'll whisper in your ear every word you've longed to hear. I haven't been more sincere. So give me some sugar baby.

Caressed gently in my arms. I know you like my boyish charms. Just let me know that you feel like I do. I try to kiss you, you turn away. I know you like to play these silly games. Just wanna be something more than nothing.

Lets make tonight our night. And make it last forever. (This night will last forever)
Track Name: Progress To Nothing
When we were young. We crawled from the sea onto the shores of destiny. We looked to the sky for guidance and light. And all we did was argue and fight.

Forgive us father for we have sinned. Give us a chance and we'll do it again. We build these sacred walls up from the ground. Just to tear them back down.

The sky it bleeds. Internally before we deceive the received. We kill for our beliefs.

Now that we've grown. We bargain and plea for our fates, cause we're down on both knees. We brought fire to the sky, that darkened the light. And all we did was watch it ignite.

Forgive us father for we have sinned. We've turned our backs and sinned once again.
Track Name: 13 Years
Thirteen years gone so fast in the blink of an eye. I'll shed no tears. Don't you worry I'll be just fine. I won't wear thin from all that bullshit you've been talking. This is the end goodbye.

No regrets or remorse for the feelings felt. Thirteens years of fooling myself. No remorse or regrets for the actions dealt. Thirteen years of fooling myself.

Thirteen years. Now its time to put the past behind. Time to move on and break free from the ties that bind. The truth set us free. There was nothing worth left saving. This is the end goodbye.

Am I ever gonna get away. From every little word that you say. And every little thing that you claim. I'm heading in a new direction. Now that I have found the truth. Far behind I'm gonna leave you. Feeling so sad and blue. I'm heading in a new direction.
