Track Name: Force of Attraction
You’ve been searching all of your life
And you continue to this day
To find yourself your way
To each we have our own

Someone told me to look for myself
I stumbled on me and you and more
Than all I’m looking for
But something’s in my head

My head is clear, my eyes they see
There are no lies inside of me

I’ve been feeling unlike myself
I’m in a world unlike my own
I’m lost and so alone
What’s happened to my friend?

I can’t find you
You’re lost in your mind
Now I know that
You’ve forgotten suddenly why we’re here
And what could be in your head

My head is clear but I can’t see
Your gentle soul in front of me

You’ve given up
You’ve lost yourself
Behind this smile
An empty shell

You floated past
A turning tree
Trapped in the ice
So suddenly

Oblivious,
You’re frozen still
Track Name: Therapy
Tickets to the picture show
I borrowed my mother's car
Glancing into my rearview mirror
Rehearsing every word I plan to say

Beautiful young Betty Lou
In her new red dress and matching shoes
She smiled at me as she closed the door,
Kissed her father once, and then once more

I don't want you to get the wrong idea
I'm not that kind of guy, I can assure you
I just need a quiet place for you to feel
How I feel with no distractions

So instead of going to the show
I have another place to go
Now you've told me that you feel the same
Condensation forms upon the window pane

I never heard him crawl inside
I didn't see the shadows in his eyes
But as I screamed, "I love you, Betty Lou"
I felt the bullet pierce through me then heard him shoot you too

I don't want you to get the wrong idea
I'm not an evil man, I can assure you
I just need a quiet place to make you feel
What I feel with no distractions
Track Name: A Great Reality
Open up your eyes
Look around for your first time
Know whoever’s there has always been

Feel your way around
Soon you’ll find more solid ground
Tell the ones you love just what you see

Oh, bright brilliant lights
Quite unlike those at night
It’s something I have never seen
Yet familiar to me
It seems my mind has left the ground
So far away, and led me to some other place
Another time, in outer space, and
Now I see we’re all as one, torn apart

Look inside your self
Soon you’ll find somebody else
But know whoever’s there has always been

Focus and you’ll see
Another great reality
Tell the ones you love just what you found

Oh, bright brilliant lights
Quite unlike those at night
It’s something I have never seen
Yet familiar to me
It seems my mind has left the ground
So far away, and led me to some other place
Another time, in outer space, and
Now I see we’re all as one, torn apart
