Track Name: Digital Dread
There's one unread message in my inbox
And I'm too much of a coward to read it
There was a time your words
Meant everything to me, but
I don't think I'm obliged to take this

Ooh, it's the fear and the dread
Waiting here
What's been said about me this time?

Every day it's the same
I'm sick of losing this game
I've got that digital dread, dread
So throw your hate at my name
And if it sticks, I'll explain
You give me that digital dread, dread

This right here is my soul
And I'm willing to bare it
Could you honestly
Say the same about yourself?
It's not like I'm ever gonna give up
My obsession
Go take your criticism somewhere else

Ooh, it's a drain on my mind
You
You're a pain
The way you start with all the same lines

My openness
Is not weakness
But I confess
It leaves me restless
Yes

I can't work with your voice
In my head
Always twisting the things
That I said
Find somebody to bother instead
Had enough of that digital dread

Every day it's the same
I think I just lost the game...

Cmon, c'mon, c'mon give it to me now
That digital dread
Cmon, c'mon, c'mon
Gonna paint a big, fat 'X' on my head
You give me that digital dread, dread
Track Name: Shining Stage
Unfamiliar sounds
Feel my heart beating faster
Watching all the lights
Casting shapes on the naked plaster
Not so long ago
I was there in the balcony
But this time there's a crowd
And they're waiting for you and me

Sound check
Dress rehearsal
Panic stations
Role reversal

Countdown
Intro sequence
Spot light
Sub bass frequency

This shining stage
This golden age

Will I ever know
What it's like trading places?
Watching all the lights
Casting shapes on their smiling faces
Had so many dreams
From my seat in the balcony
But this time there's a crowd
And their screaming for you and me
You and me
For you and me
You and me

Always to be
Beyond my reach

Get me
Out of here
Lift me
Through the limit
Always waiting alone
Always waiting here
Track Name: Digital Delight
And suddenly I'm dreaming again
Oh...
Got digital delight on my brain
Oh...

What do you wanna lift me up
What do you wanna lift me up
So high for
It's to die for
Why do you gotta lift me up
Why do you gotta lift me up
Just to drop me?
I can't stop me, no

You leave my senses inundated
Oh...
Hey, sanity is overrated
Oh...

What do you wanna lift me up
What do you wanna lift me up
So high for
It's to die for
Why do you gotta lift me up
Why do you gotta lift me up
Just to drop me?
Go 'head, boy
Drop me

What do you wanna lift me up
What do you wanna lift me up
So high for
It's to die for
Why do you gotta lift me up
Why do you gotta let me drop
Just to catch me, it's
How you match me
Track Name: Waking Song
Don't pretend you're protecting me
From the bitter disappointment that
Comes from risking anything
I used to think you had my
Best interests at heart, but
Everything you're saying is just
Your way of complaining

But now and then
It seems under my skin
And tells me to give in
They start again
The cycles of the psyche
Mechanics of the mind
And, if you don't mind...

You've tried my patience, dear
And this time I say
No!
I opened up my eyes
To find my waking song

I'm sure
You think you are perfecting me
With your candid observations
Unsolicited opinions
Accepting you would be rejecting freedom
Can you sense my trepidation?
You don't mask your irritation

I need a friend
Somebody I could trust
To pull me when I'm pushed
I'll start again
I need to get this right
And if it keeps me up all night
I really don't mind
