HAUNTED DREAMS

Lyrics by Jay Croft


Last night I watched you struggle in your sleep
Saw that you were restless, I walked into your dreams
Now I understand why I’m drawn to your energy
We keep our pain locked away, but we have each other’s key

I feel your breath, sending chills down my back  
Without restraints, but I can’t take another step
I hear your voice, but I lose it in the wind
Can you speak up, cause I’m listening

No one, knows anything
About, what happened to me
Trapped in flames, left for dead, lost and afraid
Can you save me? 

“I’m coming”

Oh, the pain is setting in
I was trying to escape, but you make me want to stay
Oh, the pain is setting in
Hey, can you save me from the flames? 

I left something behind so you’ll remember me
In the dark, cold, snowy night, I heat-up your dreams
I’ll guide you from afar, I’ll walk you through the scene
Read the part where I call your name so you can rescue me

Invade my dreams, show me everything you can
I won’t wake up when I feel the touch of your hand
I’m not afraid, but I know this dream will end
Are you coming back tomorrow, will I see you again? 

The sound of your voice calls me
Just close your eyes and you’ll see
Let’s walk into the light
No matter where it goes, it’s you and me tonight  

Oh, the pain is setting in
I was trying to escape, but you make me want to stay  
Oh, the pain is setting in
Hey, can you save me from the flames?


ESCAPE THIS PLACE

Lyrics by Jay Croft

Less than 20 miles away, a city in deep decay
Neighborhoods rot away, they all need to escape
Arson turns the city gray, corruption fans the flame
Law enforcement feels betrayed, sacrificing for meager pay

So they say,
I don't wanna be here anymore
This place isn't like it was before (x2)

Ever since 2008, their departure accelerates
Looking for a better way, they all want to escape
Nowhere for the kids to play, parents looking the other way
Vacant lots become a grave, neighbors walking the streets afraid

And they say
I don't wanna be here anymore
This place isn't like it was before (x2)
It'll never be again


DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO BELIEVE

Lyrics by Jay Croft

When I was young I could walk along the street
Not afraid of the people I would meet
But I would never let my daughter do that now
My generation knows instability
We've always been in a turbulent economy
We want the best for our hometown
Someone told me we're better off today
That's a lie, it gets in the way
You can't convince me
Cause I never left this place

Don't tell me what to believe
I've got my own two eyes
I can see right through your lies
Don't tell me what to believe
I've lived here all my life
This town has seen its better times

More crime than we've ever had before
When I was a kid we never locked our door
I'll never sleep without the deadbolt now
Someone told me we're better off today
That's a lie, it gets in the way
You can't convince me
Cause I never left this place

Don't tell me what to believe
I've got my own two eyes
I can see right through your lies
Don't tell me what to believe

This place is not the same! 

Don't tell me what to believe
I've got my own two eyes
I can see right through your lies
Don't tell me what to believe
I've lived here all my life
This town has seen its better times


INDECISIVE

Lyrics by Jay Croft

This is a warning, it's coming after you
Making you change your mind about everything you wanna do
You could be right, you could be wrong
It makes you doubt yourself
Indecision runs your life and you can only blame yourself

The choice is yours, don't change your mind
Devils advocate will only make you waste your time
Do it every single day until you feel it go your way, don't run away

Should we go to war? Should we deport? Only abort when a woman's life's at stake? 
Where do you stand on the assault rifle ban, are you red or blue today? 
Do you believe in anything enough to have a position? 
Would you back down if I were to shout, "you made the wrong decision?" 

The choice is yours, don't change your mind
Devils advocate will only make you waste your time
Do it every single day until you feel it go your way, don't run away
