Track Name: run
...wake up
feeling like
something’s wrong
with my life
i’m scared
to admit
i’d actually
end up like this

its all in your head
i don’t think it is

run from the controller boy
you might just lose your mind
run from the controller boy

you might not like what you find

go now
while you still can
at least you’ve got your integrity left

they know
what you came for
and they’ll suck it out of you
and ask for more

why do you play these games
Track Name: control [feat. corrine byrne]
i have decided to let myself go
after all, what am I here for but to
give into instinct and let caution burn
throw myself to those who only want

control, you know you wanna have it
so go ahead and control me

delusion comes when you least expect
though it's a miracle when all you want is to forget the reason why you have never loved
wrap it up inside the moment you lose

control, is only for the willing
so go ahead an control me

you're powerless
so wait for it
wait for someone
and try to fight
the urge to quit
it's strong, I know

control me
Track Name: skin
i have lost control
deep down
underneath you
and you capture me
with your tight
body

so i will follow
your every move

we move together
we move for each other
we get what we need
give until it’s over

you go down

and i let myself go down with you
i’m going down

you get close
so i get closer
closer to your skin

let it rise, let it fall
let it rise again

skin, oh i just wanna get in
underneath your skin

all that we believe doesn’t matter
it’s all about what we see
we let love come after
i just wanna hold you close
Track Name: trigger
you’ve got your hand on the trigger

i’m ready to go
but i have to lay low
til you say when

when the time is right for me
to love you
completely

don’t you know you
you control what
happens, between us

you’ve got all the
all the power
so what’s stopping you

you’ve got your hand on the trigger, yeah
and then you take it back
i wanna know why
you don’t wanna get with me

i’m ready to go
i’ll follow where you may lead, me

i know i’ve got what you need
Track Name: are you in there love
are you in there love
in there waiting

should i believe
believe that you
are with me

in all my life i’ve never found someone
someone that wants me
i’m starting to believe
there’s something wrong with me

are you in there love
in there waiting
do i believe
believe that you are with me
Track Name: taste of wine
a taste of wine
helps me rewind
to last night

i find the glass
empty on the bed
next to your shoulder

should i fill it up? back to bliss we’d run
it would take just a moment to forget

how we really feel
something like this
a taste, a taste of regret

and nothing else

i lowered my guard
lost control
and now you follow me
wherever i go

smile through the pain
hoping that it goes away

i know my way home
Track Name: what it takes [feat. andrew sheron]
beauty, please
in the eyes of
an animal
i have needs
and i fill them, no matter what it takes

but i don’t got what it takes
no i don’t got what it takes
to love what’s in front of me

patience, please
instead of injury
and let me have your
heart
cuz i know what that means

and i don’t got what it takes
for you to love me

time, please
to fill in
the space

until the next time i
see your face
Track Name: maybe this is love
dumb, cuz
i’ve been so down

and all these things i’ve done
have hurt you

i wasn’t trying to, no
i wasn’t trying to

now i need you more than ever
and i want you more than ever
and you’re no where to be found
can you explain
why i’m made this way

i just wanna hold you again

maybe this is love
maybe i can love
that word

i’m falling apart in a holding pattern
the things i want
begin to shatter
i convince myself
that you don’t matter
even though i know it’s not the truth
Track Name: what did you say
what did you say
i cant hear
from my hollow shell
i cant hear

everyone is in my way
i must reach you
tell me it’s finally happening
i must reach you
i must get to you
if i’m reading your lips right

i must
get to you

what did you say
i cant hear
from my hollow shell
i cant hear

i’ll fall, i’ll fall before
i let you go
i really need to feel your touch
it’s too hard to handle

where did you go
Track Name: control. redux. [feat. corrine byrne]
control

i have decided
to let myself go

after all
what am i here for but to
give into instinct and let caution burn
throw myself to those who’d only want

control, you know
you wanna have it
so go ahead and
control me

love
Track Name: all is forgotten [feat. corrine byrne, andrew sheron]
all is forgotten
all is forgotten

but where should i
lay down
where should i
lay down

you’ve lost yourself so many times
unsure how to recover
from another disappointing night
well, i believe you’ll find love somewhere

all is forgotten
but where should i lay down

i’m in control
though it seems like i’ve lost it all
i’m in control
i’m in control
though it seems like
i’m all alone

i’m in control though it seems like
i’ve lost it all
i still have my mind
i’m in control, trying to forget that i’m all alone
and it never ends
Track Name: the controller
i barely noticed when you left
can you blame me?
did i fail your test?

i won’t hold my breath
for long
or for what i never had

love, love
said

“my bad”

i close my eyes, dear
to finally rest
i’ve been consoled, dear, controlled, dear
close to death

i won’t hold my breath
for long
or for what i never had

love, love said

“my bad...”

when the controller left...
