When I fall from grace, I'm going to reach my pillow A restful trip from high, I guess my wit's disabled I can't believe you'd try and take my spirit with you Hide beneath the clouds, what difference will it give you The passion you described, has gone The reason you won't de, I know Your fate will be in time When I fall from grace, I know the sun won't save me Regardless what you think, I'll take my spirit with me The passion you described, has gone The reason you won't die, has gone Your fate will be in time

Mirror 04:27
I called on you and you came loaded with your number Don’t call me I'll tell you everything I’ll live my life the way that I wanted to now You say I’m indebted to you I pledge my things you really think you’re a contender Let’s pretend that you are simply my mirror Don’t call me I’ll only tease you with my thunder So you say and keep on saying Insecure, and you’re mildly numb now Accusations and you're anyone’s On balance there’s a fusion of inner conflict Way within you really think you’re the business When you look at me What do you see? Is it you alone, or subtle different versions of me and you? Could it be your face is all mine? Or is there a vision, a thought I claimed Remedy that you re-claimed Could it be that you are simply my mirror? I don’t wanna really see you again

I'm A Ghost 03:56
You may not see what I can see I'm toast, oh baby I'm toast A state of flux and I can feel What I've missed, oh what I missed Can you see me floating through Can you tell, oh can you spell A written, verbal, aural piece What you saw, oh what you thought Bring your heartbeat closer now I'm a ghost, oh baby I'm a ghost Throw your warm glow over me I won't tell, oh I won't won't tell No good reaching out for me I'm your host, oh I'm your host Don't fear me now, don't be scared I can't take, oh I can't make Bring your heartbeat closer now I'm a ghost, oh baby I'm a ghost Throw your warm glow over me I won't tell, oh I won't won't tell
