Lyrics

There's Something There

Written By: Michael Jospeh Green

THERE’S SOMETHING THERE (Green)

I can feel your breath tonight because it’s on me
Put to bed this emptiness because it’s unreal
Imagination fills my head but it’s only,
A little spark to make the best because it’s on me

Pre-Chorus:
But you re-assure me that you want to know me
Every moment, every hour, every second of everyday…

Chorus:
I’m living with something I can’t keep to myself
That’s all
There’s something there ~ There’s something there
I’m working on something now that I can’t believe
That’s all
There’s something there ~ There’s something there

I want to keep my thoughts in line, it’s not easy
Somewhere I won’t fall too far because it’s on me

Pre-Chorus:
And you re-assure me that you won’t ignore me
Every second, every minute, every hour, every moment
I will give up everything, surrender everyday

Chorus:
I’m living with something I can’t keep to myself
That’s all
There’s something there ~ There’s something there
I’m working on something now that I can’t believe
That’s all
There’s something there ~ There’s something there

Bridge:
And if only for this lifetime
I can breathe in one last lifeline
I don’t want to be part of mysteries
Before it stops you said you’d…

Switch

Written By: Michael Joseph Green

S W I T C H (Green)

I’m tired of feeding you the same old lines
I must’ve used that one at least a million times
You can’t say you don’t know how it felt
The difference here’s I can’t control myself

Sometimes I feel just like I’m slippin’ away
And you can see right through each every word I say
All who are weary come and rest your head
But I’m consumed with guilt before I hit the bed
…that’s when I

Chorus:
Switch ~ And that’s always been my way
You still call me everyday before the lights departed
You hold me when I close my eyes
…and I
Switch ~ You keep altering my soul
And I’m never letting go to all the ways you’ve saved me
And all the roads you helped pave for me when I switch

It’s hard to believe there’s a masterplan
But when I’m losing the life that isn’t in my hands
The only way I know to fix this hell
Redundancy stops as long as I can tell

I try to forget the past that’s erased
I wanna stop the clocks, the truths that age my face
Just one chance to turn it all around
But I stumble before I even hit the ground

Chorus:
Switch ~ And that’s always been my way
You still call me everyday before the lights departed
You hold me when I close my eyes
…and I
Switch ~ You keep altering my soul
And I’m never letting go to all the ways you’ve saved me
And all the roads you helped pave for me when I switch

Old Dog

Written By: Michael Joseph Green/John Smeaton

O L D D O G (Green/Smeaton)

This circle it goes around
It’s time to put this old dog down
Beats us hard and pound for pound
Like a wall we’ll crumble down

If we lived and live to believe
Maybe blind man really will one day see
Beyond disease and the obscene
With risk and faith, wash the visions clean

Chorus:
We ~ Stand united, unified
See ~ Enlightment in our eyes
Bleed ~ Can’t fight it, don’t you try
The entitlement to eternal life
The entitlement to eternal life

This world it’ll drag you down
It’ll commit your body to the ground
Separates the brave and the proud
And throws the excess to the hounds

Chorus:
We ~ Stand united, unified
See ~ Enlightment in our eyes
Bleed ~ Can’t fight it, don’t you try
The entitlement to eternal life
The entitlement to eternal life
