Lyrics

State of Mind

Written By: Christian Parkinson

State of Mind

You see yourself and everything you love is gone
Moving sideways but your always on the run
You’ve fallen in too deep this time
You put your body and your conscience on the line
You cant even breathe,
In the morning

(Chorus)
Could it be,Could it be,
Could it be your state of mind she said,
Can you see, Can you see
Can you see the whole design in my head
Magically, Magically the world keeps spinning round for you
But you aint never been wrong

Your floating in my atmosphere
Desperation sinks in
You’ll be a part of the human race
Takes you by surprise
In the morning

(Chorus)
Could it be, Could it be,
Could it be your state of mind she said,
Can you see, Can you see
Can you see the whole design in my head
Magically, magically the world keeps spinning round for you
But you aint never been wrong

Take my time and take my space
Take my mind and take my place
It’s the same as it was before
You aint never been wrong

Your floating in my atmosphere
Desperation sinks in
You’ll be a part of the human race
Its on your mind…In the morning

(Chorus)
Could it be, Could it be,
Could it be your state of mind she said,
Can you see, Can you see
Can you see the whole design in my head
Magically, magically the world keeps spinning round for you
But you aint never been wrong

You Can Run

Written By: Christian Parkinson

You can run

Teach me how to recognize, I just can’t relate
The clouds are clearing in your eyes
Before you seal your fate
Your running out of time
Your running out of mind…

Chorus
You can run, You can hide
Searching for that something just to make it right
You can run, you can fall
Waiting for the moment when you lose it all…

Teach my how to reconcile
I will be your friend
Teach my how to walk a mile
In your shoes I cannot mend
Your running out of ground
Your running out on life…

Chorus
You can run, You can hide
Searching for that something just to make it right
You can run, you can fall
Waiting for the moment when you lose it all…

Im tired of running
Im tired of fighting
Im tired of empathy
Im tired of dying…

Chorus
You can run, You can hide
Searching for that something just to make it right
You can run, you can fall
Waiting for the moment when you lose it all…

Im tired of running
Im tired x 3

Secrets

Written By: Christian Parkinson

SECRETS
I have no memory of your,
Superstitions and I,
Read your face and I don’t know
If you read me I can
Open your book and I
Leave the rest of you alone
And all your prisoners
Have turned on you-

Lay all your secrets in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow
Lay all your pieces in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow

Gunning in your trenches
I don’t have enough and
I cant see a single thing-
Cater to your whims I
Go out on a limb for
Nothing fits when I’m with you
And all your sympathy
Has burdened you

Lay all your secrets in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow
Lay all your pieces in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow
Lay all your…

Don’t take me down
I cant seem I cant seem to fly
Take me down
I cant seem I cant seem to fly

Lay all your secrets in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow
Lay all your pieces in my hand
The way Ill know tomorrow
