Track Name: breaking down
I don't care anymore what you say,
Every word that you speak is a game you play,
And you think that I think that this is war,
I don't care to win or lose so I choose just to shut the door

I'm sure to you it just seems I'm acting strange,
But I can't go on pretending it will change

It's time to admit this has gone too far,
I fell in love with who I thought you were, not who you are,
Every year I have spent has cost me ten,
I can always count on you to let me down again and again

Just how much more were you planning to take?
It's clear to me I made a mistake

You're no good for me,
I'm no good for you,
Are we breaking up or are we breaking down?

Are you a friend to me or are you an enemy?
Are we breaking up?
I think I'm breaking down

You're no good for me,
I'm no good for you,
Are we breaking up or are we breaking down?

Are you a friend to me or are you an enemy?
Track Name: days months years
There are days there are months there are years,
When I've run out of words to say,
I climb up on my cross,
I lean in to my loss,
And watch myself fade away

There are days there are months there are years,
I just can't seem to hold the line,
I wade through the day,
Like a ghost through the grey,
Waiting on the end of time

Don't look at me,
Don't want you to see what I've become

There are doubts there are dreads there are fears,
That I know I must face alone,
I hide out from the sun,
All my deeds lay undone,
Though I am reaping what I have sown

There are days there are months there are years,
I can hardly believe were real,
I look with dismay,
I waste day after day,
So numb I can barely feel

Don't look at me,
Don't want you to see what I've become

There are days there are months there are years,
When everything falls apart,
For every dream that has died,
Pulls me further inside,
And drives a dagger through my heart

There are days there are months there are years
Days Months Years
Track Name: lost
There's nowhere a man can find peace,
He's no place if not trapped in his mind,
I wait for nightfall to bring release,
Memories are no friends of mine

Learn to let go is what they say,
I'm a prisoner of the man that I was,
I'd not planned things to turn out this way,
But the young man and the fool never does

Can you hear me I'm calling?
I have lost my way
Can you help me I've fallen?
Help me face the day

The man in the mirror glares at me,
His eyes are as cold as my soul,
If I smash the mirror would it set him free,
Is it him or is it me in control?

Can you hear me I'm calling?
I have lost my way
Can you help me I've fallen?
Help me face the day
Track Name: voices from the other side
I think I hear voices from the other side,
I think I hear voices from the other side

I, I will not fear,
Wishing you were here,
I, I will not fall,
I miss you all

I think I hear voices from the other side,
I think I hear voices from the other side

Sometimes at night I think I've been found,
By the morning I've lost the sound,
All the things you think you know,
Will leave you with no place to go

I think I hear voices from the other side,
I think I hear voices from the other side
Track Name: Thinking Machines (Here Come The)
Everywhere I walk,
Every time I talk,
I know they're listening in

Everything I say,
Every dime I pay,
Every single time I sin

Oh could it be?
That they're judging me,
Watching through the night,
Lining us up in their sites

(Here come the thinking machines)

Crazy I know,
But everywhere I go,
I feel them contemplating me

Nothing I can do,
Watching me, Watching you,
Is anyone really free?

There will come a day,
When they will have their way,
Nothing that we can do,
The machines will be human too

(Here come the thinking machines)

Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind
Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind
Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind
Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind

Thou shalt not
Thou shalt not
Thou shalt not
Thou shalt not

We made machines,
We gave them dreams,
We gave them a point of view

Mad machines,
Laser beams,
The nightmare has come true

(Here come the thinking machines)
