Track Name: Walls
These walls are not my prison
When I lock the door by choice
But these walls are not a sanctuary
When all I hear is my own voice
I go through the door as a free man can
But in your walls I can't be who I am

This life is not my prison
When I can't ignore the truth
That this life aint no paradise
When it bears all its fruits to you
I go through this life as best as i can
but you can't get much without a helping hand

And so you say to me
With such a delicate stare
Focus on getting what you want
and then maybe I will care
But what if that thing I want
is to give you what you need
How much should I want you
If you need me to beg and plead
Oh, I won't live on my knees

This body is not my prison
When the wasteland is all around
But this body is not a playground
Open to the whole town
I go through the motions as anyone would
I try to move forward but it's doing no good

Oh I am not a prisoner
But you make me feel that way
And if I weren't such a fool
I'd have no reason to stay
I go to escape and be my own man
I can't get away without you pulling me in
I go to escape and be my own man
I can't get away without you pulling me in
Track Name: Stay
Oh, I believe you
when you say what to do
It's kind of a secret of mine
And I try to obey
when you teach me to play
These games that are stuck in my mind

And I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
And I'm hoping that you ask me to stay
I'll get down on my knees if you need me to beg
Oh i'm hoping that you'll ask me to stay

I play the fool
'cause it's easy to do
It's always a pleasure of mine
And when you push me away
it's a dismal display
of these games that you play with my mind

So hold me close till we see the light
and we'll stumble up to the roof
from there we'll kiss the night goodbye
while we sober up to the truth
that you and I are intertwined
for better or for worse
oh this could be a blessing
or just another bloody curse
what do you
choose
what do you
choose
what do you choose
