You'd never let me be anything that you didn't understand You'd dress me up as a fool everyday just to show you can I never picked to be here now, I never wanted to And now i can't even use my name to get solace through... I don't care if you don't like my ways Didn't build this life for you And all these things i hide inside, i hide because of you You think that you know the best for me Well i'd hate to strain your mind Because are all made in different ways, ways you can't define So why don't you take a different path, a different look on life Cause you are not the only one who can't sleep tonight I don't care if you don't like my ways Didn't build this life for you And all these things i hide inside, i hide because of you

Is there something i missed? Something i've failed to say? I'm not one to pretend, but maybe nothing lasts anyway I'll try to ignore self-defense, i'm just trying to act on what's true But i'm losing my breathe from chasing after you If you want me, here i am In a state between a lover and a friend And i know this has proven true I am not content without you Still this keeps pushing on I'm afraid i'm falling away It's eating me from the inside, for me not to show and only say You are the one i adore, each day i only crave more This conclusion that i've come to, i can't listen Because i don't want to be without you If you want me, here i am In a state between a lover and a friend And i know this has proven true I am not content without you I love you, I need you When fate and love both have their say, who will turn around? Who will stay? Will you stay? Don't walk away, please stay

We've always known, these days would come To divide the weak from the strong Remembrance, just like fingerprints Our memories will always live on Don't forget while you are gone All we are and all we've seen Are the spaces in between this photograph dream Maybe someday, we'll leave this town Drive until the stars in the sky burn out We'll let the winds guide us through the city streets Maybe someday, just you and me Six of the senses hit at once To die is to feel alive And Dali knows the beauty i saw that night Do what you feel is right All we are and all we know Can point us to our past But only fate will show Maybe someday, we'll leave this town Drive until the stars in the sky burn out We'll let the winds guide us through the city streets Maybe someday, just you and me If we believe, in someday Time will set us free, someday Lost with no where to be, someday In this photograph dream, someday

I don't know where to begin, this end has left me speechless If everything that i've said can't make you believe, then you'll never listen Give me one good reason And say that you're sorry I took you in and gave you all that you wanted But i was just your crutch, a second best to your love I will never let that happen again Give me one good reason And say that you're sorry I've had enough of this, enough of you're childish bullshit You're only around when you find it convenient When i'm the only left to come crying to I've giving you too many chances You're not worth it anymore Find someone else, if there's anyone else left Go ahead and walk away, i can't stand for this any longer You've got yourself blinded by the situation I've lost my empathy for you And maybe someday you'll see all the mistakes you've made & people you've hurt And just for the record, you really made me feel abandoned, insulted and betrayed Give me one good reason And say that you're sorry Turn around

Have i fallen from what's right? Am i living by the verse? Do you think i'm thinking much too hard? I am straying from the worse You can't save me Your bedtime stories have lost their love You can't chain me You can't save me Don't you tell me what i think I can't hear myself anymore I'm not gonna let you pave my way I'm tired of listening Advice is advice, and you're not bound to the way i live my life All good things meet their end So let loose and let me live You can't save me Your bedtime stories have lost their love You can't chain me You can't save me Don't you tell me what i think I can't hear myself anymore I'm not gonna let you pave my way I'm tired of listening Break free, live your life Break free, see the light Break free, feel the light Break free, live your life

I hoped to find you, a change soul anew at heart I only wish you would oblige me, for i can't take part You only see yourself in this world of unhappiness You scream that we are wrong, and i'm left in your misery Are you satisfied with the mess you've made? Why do you insist on making it worse on you and me? Open up your eyes, can't you see that it's sucking the life out you Forgiveness is limited for the unworthy You only see yourself in this world of unhappiness You scream that we are wrong, and i'm left in your misery But only we seem to care, so i'll see you next December Open up your eyes, can't you see that it's sucking the life out you Forgiveness is limited for the unworthy You only see yourself in this world of unhappiness You scream that we are wrong, and i'm left in your misery Screaming in your misery, You're breaking up my family Leaving me in your misery

I can't be like this, I feel like such a shit Let's do what we can do while we still have the time Why am i doing this? We do this ever-going match of the pigs I am proud to win, check out my badges Don't you wish you could be as cool as me? I don't want to be here forever It's my fault and i know it's true No one can satisfy me No one can live up to my standards, not even me Let's go away to a secret place, i will lie for you Forget yourself and all these things, let it all come down And i'll try to leave before you start to hold on Sure i think twice sometimes, sure i care when it is mine But i just don't care this time.. I can't let this happen to me, not this time. Not to me I don't want to be here, forever Loneliness is devouring me No one can satisfy me No one can live up to me standards, not even me Let's go away to a secret place, i will lie for you Forget yourself and all these things, let it all come down And i'll try to leave before you start to hold on

I've been tempted by your beauty time and again But it's not these arms you've been resting in Every time i need you he leaves me in doubt I'm always the last one who finds out You've got to be perfect i need you tonight I can't take more of this wrong or right Leave me alone in this dying pain I just don't know anymore I'm drawing circles around my head I feel so low i would rather be dead I need your love to hold inside me Why do you have to do this to me? You're so beautiful when you're faithful to me But you're too innocent and naive to see That what he wants in someone he can use One to toy with, left accost and accused And i'm struggling to keep love alive I'm up the plank ready to take the dive So be the one who we both truly need, someone who won't leave Come close, lay your body next to mine I need you, you need me Why can't we live the life we want to live? Why can't we just be perfect? I'm drawing circle around my head, i'd feel better dead You're so pretty when you're faithful to me You're so pretty, no You're so pretty when you're faithful

I feel fate's not on my side I know nothing's right Won't me let me climb inside you Far away from strangers Please they don't understand I can't meet their demands Take my pride and take me from her Far away from strangers I'm searching for some answers And the place where we lost our world can't be seen I don't need no other lover So help me, give it back to me Orange, orange as the moon that shown Orange as the clock that glows As faded as the love we had and let go Far away from strangers I'm searching for some answers And the place where we lost our world can't be seen I don't need no other lover So help me, give it back to me

You always knew it'd never be this way And all along you planned to hold on 'til the daylight came You'd always touch me a little more when i tried to get close You've never push me away, you'd just let go But you're floating endlessly, broken into place Somewhere deep inside of me i'll change all my mistakes In this God forsaken place, in this daydream I've been waiting for the days, waiting for a change of pace Of missing you Wishing you away, wishing you'd beg me to stay Running away from you The fire in the sky, the moonlight in your eyes tonight Do you fake it, is it true? I see you're feeling fine, would you tell i'll be alright? Cause i'll be alright, right? I'm regretting a past i can't re-live I lies i loved, but i can't forget I awake late at night I never sleep, i don't know why Just leave me alone, there's nothing more in here Won't someone take me home, cause i'm lost somewhere in this daydream I've been waiting for the days, waiting for a change of pace Of missing you Wishing you away, wishing you'd beg me to stay Running away from you The fire in the sky, the moonlight in your eyes tonight Do you fake it, is it true? I see you're feeling fine, would you tell i'll be alright? Cause girl i'll be alright Don't you deny you were here I know i'll find myself in here You are the worst kind of people This is the worst kind of love You are the worst kind of people Daydreamer, awake Daydream her away, awake No, you don't belong here

Our story begins today and we lay our setting where you are Cause today's your lucky day pig. that's right, this one's for you Stand up and prepare to hear the sad truth My breakdown is from what is true inside of you It's the inability of honest, hypocrisy, stupidity, you show You are the cause of this animosity I'm sorry people like you, come and go Truth has become too clear, realities what i fear This spells been cast over me, it's forced me numb I'm too far from the light, i can't find my way home Well here i am once again, left on my own There is a place outside the shadows, makes it all disappear But maybe i don't deserve that, don't deserve them and i'll stay here Truth has become too clear, realities what i fear This spells been cast over me, it's forced me numb We all get like this, it's okay to be like this I thought we all got like this, i'm not suppose to be like this God help me, i don't want to be like this Truth has become too clear, realities what i fear This spells been cast over me, it's forced me to be numb

Time has led me through the oceans And showed me the depths of now It's only an imbalance in time before the rain changes it's sound I can't believe the things that have done Broken thoughts of things that are to come These are the letters i've kept In cupboards hidden in the walls These feelings i've push aside Longing for the days when i feel alive But i've giving up my hope For things that i cannot control You're only one moment, but please don't leave me alone I wish that you were still here with me So we could stop regressing on feelings Cause you are all that i need And nothing can stop these emotions But i don't know what love is And you don't need someone to bring you down So i'll be on my way now But i'll be thinking of you til i drowned myself in my washed dreams

CIRCLE OF WILLIS (from The Visor, April 10 2001)

The emotions, ideas, and relief music can bring is what ties Circle of Willis to the local band scene.

Made up of senior Mike Wood from Wayne County Career Center, senior Brian Ullman from Rittman High School, and senior Zack Kelly and freshman Cody Kelly from Revere High School, Circle of Willis is a modern rock band which, with six solid months under their belts, is making its way to the top.

The group has been around since the winter of 1998, but it is not until recently that all four current members have been playing together. Circle of Willis has performed at many places, including the Agora, the Odeon, Phantasy, Sadie Renee’s, and numerous coffee shops. They also took second place in the Rock Off finals in January.

The band has produced a few demo CDs, but when they were contacted by Sony distributor Jason Gula, who was interested in their music, the band decided to produce their first actual album. Entitled 'What’s Next,' their CD Will be coming out in May of this year.

The band’s music focuses on a combination of emotions. Ullman believes teenagers can relate to the lyrics.

“I don’t want to sound like a little kid with the lyrics,” Ullman said. “I’d rather write about things I believe in strongly than pretend I’m grown up and write things I haven’t the slightest clue about.”

The band takes inspiration from groups such as Nine Inch Nails, Korn and the Dave Matthews Band, but Ullman feels the group draws from a large variety of styles.

“I listen to all kinds of music and have really learned to try to draw and learn from everything from [Britney Spears’] Oops I Did it Again, to [Outkast’s] So Fresh and So Clean,” Ullman said.

The band not only has influences of its own, but hopes to become an influence for its listeners as well.

“Music is a soothing escape from everything,” Ullman said. “You need that outlet from the stresses of everyday life. Our purpose for playing and writing music is to provide that outlet for someone else.”

GENRE: Modern Rock

INFLUENCES: The Dave Matthews Band, Rage Against The Machine, Korn and Deftness

FUTURE: “Since most of us are seniors going our separate ways, we don’t know what the future holds. That’s why we’re making this CD, just in case the end of us comes in the next couple months. We’re prepared to stay or leave.” —Ullman

ALL-TIME FAVORITE CD: Incubus’ Science

FAVORITE MEMORY: “A tie between placing second in the Rock Off finals, being contacted by Sony, or last Thursday, sitting in our dressing room at the Agora.” —Ullman

ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE THE BAND: Rock

DREAM CONCERT BILL: Nine Inch Nails, Dave Mathews, Deftones, Korn, Incubus
