Track Name: Butterfly
A butterfly fell down and broke a wing
and all the air rushed out
But it's not a break, it's more a twist and then a slide
and all the air rushed out...

If you want me to I'll burn
If you want me to I'll bleed for you
I give myself to you
Because I love you

So I cupped my hands and cradled you inside
All the air rushed out...
To wait for the day we'll spread our wings and fly
Track Name: Emperor's New Clothes (Tapewurm Demo)
Like a moth to a flame or some sick twisted game
You just couldn't leave him alone
He's the trophy you've won can't you see what's to come?
You're kicking me out of my throne

It's the Emperor's new clothes
There are highs and some lows
But there's one thing you're too blind to see
When you kick off your robes you'll find you're alone
It's too late to turn back for home

The emperor looks into the mirror and smiles,
"These robes are the best I have seen"
But she's so blind she just sees what she's aching to see
Appearance has tricked her once more

You walk through the town
Watch your subjects all watch the ground
Does she know that she's been fooled again
When the deal of the century becomes the hand offs you lent me
Then you'll know you never should have strayed from me
Track Name: Sounds Like Sunday (Tapewurm Demo)
Wash your mouth because you know what is fair still you don't know what it's about.
Hold your tongue, because you know what is fair still you don't know what it's about.

Over and over, I tried to let you know
But you keep on coming back for more

Watch your step, careful you don't fall
Sometimes the ground moves around and starts dragging you down to the floor
Take a look around see what's left in store
If you get kicked down get up and fight some more

Over and over, I tried to let you know
But you keep on coming back for more there's nothing that my heart wants more
Over and over I tried to let you go.
Track Name: Houston
You don't bite your nails do you Hadleigh?
Yeah
Oh good!

Houston why do you sit there and let them take your soul
Can't you see that you're never going to be loved at all
Used to let me know whats going on in your mind
I still remember that look in your eye

I can't believe that you'd do this to me
I gave you my love now I'm setting you free
To be unloved
But I'm thinking on
I don't need you no more
Free to walk right out that door
Track Name: How Is That?
You always act the clown, but Inside you frown
Well yes I think I've sussed you out.
She says you're looking fine and I've heard those lines and I've seen that look before
You think that I'm the fool, but if you only knew you would see that you're so late
Now you're all grown up, wish I could shut you up and send you straight back home from school.

Everything you do seems to bounce right off of you
And find itself stuck right onto me.

How Is That?

You say I waste your time and you've been much maligned
Yes, I really feel for you
Where did we lose the time when I got left behind
People always love the fool
There's nothing you can't do because you can swim drive and cook my food I feel so glad that I met you
Now you're all grown up, wish I could shut you up and send you straight back home from school.
Track Name: Lullaby For Christopher
Say goodnight, my little angel
Let your dreams unfold
Close your eyes, my little Angel
Because you will sleep by my side

Dreams are magic
Dream a magic carpet ride with bright green dragons
Dragons flying in the sky

Say goodnight, my little angel
Let your prayers fill the void
Say goodnight, you're my little angel
You will sleep by my side
Track Name: Butterfly (Tapewurm Demo)
A butterfly fell down and broke a wing
and all the air rushed out
But it's not a break, it's more a twist and then a slide
and all the air rushed out...

If you want me to I'll burn
If you want me to I'll bleed for you
I give myself to you
Because I love you

So I cupped my hands and cradled you inside
All the air rushed out...
To wait for the day we'll spread our wings and fly
Track Name: Time To Move [Live @ The Cherry Jam]
Wake up late and take a glance at the clock
You know it's time to move
Still in bed the alarm has yet to stop
You know it's time to move
Hit the snooze and you won't move until you choose to take a pot shot at the clock
Come on babe hurry get your shoes on
You know it's time to move
Track Name: Trust [Live @ Cherry Jam]
Well it came as a surprise when she looked into your eyes, she said," I like you"
Now the alcohol has cleared and it's just as he had feared, "what is it about you?"

I was told you used to cry before you'd sleep
Thinking of the times I tried to keep
But now I think the truth has all come out
You should never trust your friends to help you out
They lied about the time that you came home
Had me pacing waiting by the phone
You never thought to call me up
Infact you never thought of me at all

So he realised the game and though they paint a fool his face won't fit the frame
But they'll keep on trying
But this fool knows inside out
Take a pinch of salt and treat these words with doubt
If you think theyre lying
