"Playing Games"

Music and Lyrics by F. Bisciotti


I saw you today in a devious gaze,

with your mind in a haze, you were laughing.

And now I look back, and I have to retract,

all the same old mishaps that keep happening.


It's a shame.

Playing games

with you.


Yesterday's grin, you said, was on a whim,

and I have to give in, it's abashing.

You said you're fine, like you've been all the time.

But we know that you checks can't get cashing.


It's a shame.

Playing games

with you.


"Far From the Routine"

​Music and Lyrics by F.Bisciotti

I've got a fear about being ordinary,

what's the deal and why is it so scary?

All this anxiety it so complexing;

and it's vexed me, and I can't sleep.


I think about it and my thoughts get blurred.

So I imbibe and my words get slurred.

No one is there or around to guide,

I can't confide, so I just hide...


Away, away from all the things you've seen,

away, away from all the things you've dreamed

Get up and away, away from all the things you've seen.

Away, away from all these things, they've been far from the routine.


So, what's the deal? Why am I apprehensive?

My qualms abiding, there just so extensive.

I want to lay back, I just want to chill,

but I can't calm down,  and I won't be still.


I want to know why I just can't take waiting.

These brainless things I'm always contemplating.

There's no words in this story's book,

so I move on and try to look...


Away, away from all the things you've seen,
away, away from all the things you've dreamed
Get up and away, away from what do make the grade.
Away, away from all these things, they fade, far from the routine.

"Just Because"

Music by F.Bisciotti Lyrics by K. Fischer & F. Bisciotti


Truth be told, I'm uncontrolled.

It's January and the wind is cold,

but your warming eyes bring hope to the hopeless.


Take me to a different place,

where I can disregard what you've replaced;

and I can learn and love to me be again.


Where did I get off thinking I was better off without you?

Before I ever met you, I knew just who I was.

Your eyes were my fire, they fueled my desire,

but they were changing who I was,

or who I wasn't, or maybe just because.


With shooting stars and falling leaves.

With season's change so did our sleeves,

and this room leaves me alone with these memories.


I've got a secret for you, this is its debut.

It has no riddle to construe.

So leave me alone and once in my life I can be true.


Stop haunting me, leave me alone!

I want to try this out on my own.
I don't want to do this, but it'd be better if I could.

I want to do this myself, without your help;

try it out on my own for a while.

This is my first trial to living with myself.


Truth be told, I'm uncontrolled.

It's January and the wind is cold,

but your warming eyes bring hope to the hopeless.

"More than Ever"

​Music and Lyrics by F.Bisciotti


I know my words are faded, blurry, incomprehensible.

And either way I talk forever, not sure of where it all went wrong.

My inhibitions and past submissions drown me.

I'm not done trying, I'm done with lying.

Please convince me, help me find a way.


Help me find my way.

I want this more than ever

so tell me now or never.

Just help me find my way,

help me find my way,

I wish I could today.


I know I've had my chances, do anything for just one more.

And I don't deserve your pity, my begging only makes you sore.

I'm leaving town for higher ground, try me.

Don't want rejection, just some direction,

make this easy so I can find a way.


I wanna find my way.

Ambitious, high and trying,

ready to start flying.

I wanna find my way,

I wanna find my way,

I started yesterday.


Why is it that I'm caring

and declaring amnesty?

I'm trying all our patience,

but all I want from you is me.


I know my words are faded, blurry, incomprehensible.

"Now"

Music and Lyrics by F. Bisciotti


I've been hearing the news and all I can do

is lie here, awake, alone in my bed.

Trying to find a reason for it but

nothing ever seems to make sense to me.

And this is senseless, offensive; I can't bare to ignore it.

But I don't want to stand here and say that I'm for it.


And all I'm really trying to do,

and all I'm really trying to say,

All I'm really trying to prove,

is that this epidemic really needs to go away.


So put down your arms and hold your hands up high.

We need to act now, all methods justified.

We can work for a cause if everyone helps out,

but we need to act now that's what it's all about.


Our city's in shambles, they're loading up clips,

and packing up magazines by the handfuls.

And the police can't predict the bloodshed,

so instead we embed them into the streets while they bestead.

And hope for release to decease this bane undoing,

'cause the witnesses aren't the ones to do the cluing. 


And all I'm really trying to do,

and all I'm really trying to say,

All, I'm really trying to prove,

is that we need to make amends and not just run away.


So put down your arms and hold your hands up high.

We need to act now, all methods justified.

We can work for a cause if everyone helps out,

but we need to act now that's what it's all about.


We can work for a cause if everyone helps out,

but we need to act now, that's what I'm talking about.
