Track Name: I Will Haunt Your Dreams
Night’s long dark and cold
Or so it’s been sold
I will not
Be so easily told
What else will it take?
Just to get you to stay?

When nothing seems right
You will just close your eyes
And I’ll be there
Travelling deep in the night
You’re not so far away
And you can’t stay awake
But life’s not what it seems
When I haunt all your dreams

I will not say goodbye
I will get you this time
I will beg you to stay
You will just say good night
You’ll put up a big fight
But your heart is mine always

When you hold your head high
You must know you’re not right
I will not
Be far from your side

With whispered, “good night,”
As you just close your eyes
But life’s not what it seems
I will haunt all your dreams

I will not say goodbye
I will get you this time
I will beg you to stay
You will just say good night
You’ll put up a big fight
But your heart is mine always
Track Name: Stuck in a Soft Cage
When all your friends go
Who knows where winds blow?
I may have answers and then..
One keeps on singin’
Ignore the phone ringing
It’s sanity calling again

Don’t take what they give you
As long as you live
You will be dependent on them
Still trying to fight the good battle inside
No matter, you’ll still be condemned

So many voices and so few choices
Every day is the same
This one haunts me
And this one taunts me
This one just whispers my name

They’ll rip you apart just to make you whole
And then coddle you 'til you rise
You look in the mirror you sparkle and glimmer
The devil in this guise

So many voices and so few choices
Every day is the same
This one haunts me
And this one taunts me
This one just whispers my name

This one tells me I’m no good and
This one screams and then
This one’s singing
Just let it keep ringing!
That’s sanity calling again

Stuck in a soft cage
Sequestered by my rage
I’m never, ever alone
No need to ponder
Wherever I wander
Inside my head is my home

So many voices and so few choices
Every day is the same
This one haunts me
And this one taunts me
This one is screaming my name

This one tells me I’m no good and
This one screams and then
This one’s singing
Just let it keep ringing!
That’s sanity calling again
Track Name: Mad Scientist (Midnight Version)
I wish I was a mad scientist I’d look to find a million ways
To keep you safe and happy
Keep you by my side forever and always
And I’d be able to protect you from sadness and evil all our days
Our love would fill the world and all the world would see what happens when love stays

And if you should die I could bring you back to life with electricity
Then show you around my lab so if I died you could do the same for me
Shrink you down to size so that I could carry you with me in my pocket
If I got it right I could make you so small you’d fit in a locket

I wish I was a mad scientist I’d look to find a million ways
To keep you safe and happy
Keep you by my side forever and always
And I’d be able to protect you from sadness and evil all our days
Our love would fill the world and all the world would see what happens when love stays

Build a teleportation device so that I can always get to where you are
I'd teach you to use it, too so that you and I would not be very far
Build a cloning machine so that everyone in the whole world could be you
Then when you met you you'd see why I loved you and then you'd all love me, too.

I wish I was a mad scientist I’d look to find a million ways
To keep you safe and happy
Keep you by my side forever and always
And I’d be able to protect you from sadness and evil all our days
Our love would fill the world and all the world would see what happens when love stays

We could live forever in a fortress in the sky
The world may burn and fade, but our love would never die
