Track Name: What Kind of Man Are You
I’m a man of ambition - What kind of man are you?
One of us is in transition - With so much more to live up to

Not hard to figure out - You’ve got your share of doubt - Not much to fret about

Act like a man now - Don’t talk so loud
You’ve been around - Working the crowd

We are men holding position - Someone here’s cutting into the queue
Some of us are on a mission - Still waiting to find our groove

Let’s get it figured out - Then shake this nagging doubt - Too much to think about

Act like a man now - Don’t talk so loud
You’ve been around - Working the crowd

I’m the man that needs to feel proud
You’re the man that needs to be taken down

Act like a man now - Don’t talk so loud
You’ve been around - Working the crowd
Act like a man now - Throw that weight around
Track Name: Created a Monster
I feel like I can’t go wrong
My senses burn so strong
You better move on, before I take you along

You better not look at me wrong
’Cause all my dignities gone
Lest I take you along, you better shuffle along

They created a monster tonight, that will fight
These sensations in me will ignite, tonight
Something went wrong…

You put a gun in an evil hand
You give a pen to an angry man
You’ll reap what you sow - And they'll never let go

They act like their circuits have failed
They feel like society bailed
They never move on - And all the empathies gone

They created a monster tonight, that will fight
These sensations in me will ignite, tonight

Something inside is twisted too tight - They’ll break when they’re alone
Nothing outside is making much sense - It’s too late to pick up the phone

They created a monster tonight, I’m wrapped too tight
And these sensations in me will ignite, but that’s all right
They created this monster tonight, that wants a fight
Someone here will soon pay the price, tonight, tonight
Track Name: Can't Find Myself
Well come to the mirror boy - Look me in the eye
Stare at the mirror boy - Look yourself in the eye

Can you find yourself and get behind yourself?
Do you recognize yourself anymore?

Go look yourself over boy - Look inside those eyes
You’re not the same man you were - Something’s changed inside

Can you find yourself and get behind yourself ?
Recognize yourself anymore?

Well make yourself over boy - Work that charm a little more
Make yourself over boy - Work that charm just a little more

Go reflect in that mirror boy - Show what’s hidden inside
They cast a spell on you boy - Do you know that person inside?

Start to find yourself, go look inside yourself
Do you like what you see at the core?

Well make yourself over boy - Work that charm a little more
Make yourself over boy - Work that charm just a little more
Go make yourself over boy - Work that charm a little more
Go make yourself over boy - And go work that charm just a little more
Track Name: Patience
Got a hole in this heart for sure
This place don’t feel secure anymore
I was looking around for what didn’t get burned

All the memories freshly stirred
All the context just gets blurred
I just don’t feel so sure anymore
I can’t stay like this anymore

I need more patience - I need more time
There’s a feeling of loss churning inside
I’ll need a little more patience
I need a better way to get by
Time moves too slowly to get by

There’s a heart that skips a beat for sure
Loneliness here has been underscored
Been looking around for some kind of cure

All my feelings won’t be deferred
There’s a focus that seems to be blurred
The longer it stays I feel less assured
I can’t stay like this anymore

I need more patience - I need more time
There’s a feeling of loss churning inside
I’ll need a little more patience
I need a new way to shine
Time moves too slow to get by

Soon you’ll realize, there’s no way you’re saying goodbye
Soon you’re gonna' realize, you’ve worn away that perfect disguise

I need more patience - I need more time
There’s a feeling of loss churning inside
I need a little more patience
I need a way out to shine
Time moves too slowly for me to get by
Track Name: California Was My Remedy
Headed West, left behind allies and enemies
Went to a place where they crush your ills with prosperity
California was my remedy - Sick as I was before, she gave me vitality

And I hear them laugh, like they won some sort of victory
I’ll stand my ground - Push around this fantasy

This place I now call home has a certain vanity
Some criticize the style we threw/throw at humanity
California was my remedy - And sick as I was before, I’m healing gradually

Seem to laugh a lot, left behind those traps that troubled me
I stood my ground - Gave into these fantasies

It’s a mystery - That’s ahead of me…

Some may try to wrap you in their apathy
They can deride this place - But they can’t deny there’s mystery
California was my remedy - Sick as I was before, I’ve got vitality

Hear them laugh, like they won some sort of victory
I stand my ground - Push around this fantasy
I hear them laugh, like they won some sort of victory
I stood my ground - Pushed around this fantasy

It’s a mystery - Everything that’s ahead of me
Track Name: Home
The setting’s changed in this lifeless town
Where I left my past, and some old know how
Something’s missing, as I make my way around

Once this was home - My mind had to roam - Memories tucked away
Once this was home - My future unknown - So I went astray

I found my way back through these copper skies
All the storefronts changed, should I be surprised that something’s missing?
As I feel my way around

Once this was home - My mind had to roam - Memories tucked away
Once this was home - My future unknown - So I went astray

Then I walked away
Pulled away
Make me stay - Or I'll walk away

Hope gave in to this hard-luck town
Don’t want to chase old ghosts that may bring me down
Faces missing - There’s no need to stay around

Once this was home - My mind had to roam - Memories tucked away
Once this was home - My future unknown - So I went astray
Once this was home - My mind had to roam - Memories tucked away
Once this was home - My future unknown - So I went astray

Walked away...
