Track Name: Bird's Eye View
I saw the ground through the eyes,
Of a bird as I soared through the skies,
And I knew that it wouldn't last long,
Yeah, I knew I'd be comin' back home

Well, I stained the Earth with blood,
As it dripped all the way from above,
Cause' I knew this chance would be gone,
Yeah, I knew I'd be goin' back home
Track Name: Shadows
Hey there sunshine,
Where've ya been?
Where've ya headed now?
Come back again

I know that you can see my fall,
I know that you can't help at all,
I know that I can make it through, but,
This shadow seems to follow me around

Hey there sunshine,
How've ya been?
Can you close your eyes now?
Can you see the end?

I know that you've been gone too long,
I know that this has been my fault,
I know that I can make it through, but,
Your shadow seems to stick around

I know that you can see my fall,
I know that you can't help at all,
I know that I can make it through, but,
This shadow needs to find a home,
This shadow needs to find it's home,
This shadow needs to find a home
Track Name: World Around Me
This life is an open book,
Let's turn around, take a look,
My dream is to fade away,
Deep into the world today

But in my mind,
There's hope,
And life's never gonna be the same,
And I feel so alive,
That the world around me dies,
In my mind,
There's hope,
And that's never gonna go away,
I need the world today

I know my place,
I feel a change,
And I know that I can't rely,
On permanence to be

But in my mind,
There's hope,
And life's never gonna be the same,
And I feel so alive,
That the world around me dies,
In my mind,
There's hope,
And that's never gonna go away,
I need the world today
Track Name: Impression
I thought it was the start,
Of a new life,
All it was, was a chance,
To get it all straightened out,
And what I thought was a new life,
Was the change of a lifetime,
And it left an impression on me

I felt the cold wind,
On my face,
I was at the gates,
Of a heavenly embrace,
I changed the world with a touch,
Man, It wasn't much,
But it left an impression on me
