Track Name: Down
It’s raining it’s pouring
The old man he’s boring
outside the window it snows
Read my lips and I’ll kiss you on the fist
You don’t have to say no

Cause down there is down
You don’t have to wear a cracked crown
Read my lips and I’ll kiss you on the fist
You don’t have to say no

Stay with me oh play with me
The future’s not here not endlessly
Another thing I don’t know
And where is the list where you wanna be a kid
Those things that your that where his

Cause down there is down
You don’t have to wear a cracked crown
Read my lips and I’ll kiss you on the fist
You don’t have to say no
Track Name: Hard to Say
You don’t even want but you have a choice
Give it a name and you give it a voice
I’ve been wondering why what where and how
You think about it you don’t think about

It’s hard to say
It’s hard to do
It’s hard for me
Like its hard for you too

Time it’ll pass it’ll all slip away
How do I know what it’s worth in a day
Living the burden of being alive
Time in my hands a hand forced to survive

it’s hard to say
It’s hard to do
It’s hard for me
Like its hard for you

Time it’ll be gotta leave to maintain
Nestle with love and you wrestle with pain
But I’ve been thinking of giving it a try
You let it all go before it all goes by

it’s hard to say
It’s hard to do
It’s hard for me
Like its hard for you
Track Name: Week Long Nights
All the days my life passed by
I’m going out, don’t know why
There’s too many clouds and not enough shine
I’m going out, gotta try
The week long nights
The falling behind
Tell my love I’m going out
Tell my love to get out
Don’t want you around
‘Cause you want me down
But I’m not gonna break for you
I’m not gonna break ‘cause someone’s gonna love me better
Some day I hope it is true
Some day love is gonna pat me on the back not keep me blue
Through the maze through days and another phase
I’m crawling out of the tomb
There’s so many doubt and not enough why’s
I’m going out, gotta try
Track Name: Selfish Love
You’ve gotta cultivate it
The soil is soft and faded
I was a worm but now I’m gone

And then it rained again
Track marks muddied the ground began
To firm up the life that you fed on

A selfish love I got used to
Gonna trick me out of my boots
But I will try to lean forward
Gonna need the best parachute

Sometimes you gotta feed it
The ground needs water weed it
I was the sun but now I’m gone

The garden then will die
Plants they wither and go dry
Losing the light that they fed on

A selfish love I got used to
Gonna trick me out of my shoes
You will hear this I will make you
String it all together parachute
Track Name: Leave a Light on
Leave a light on for me when you close the door
There seems to be nothing left for me, nothing anymore
I tried and it’s true to keep loving you
But all the feelings sag
You know it and we blocked it out
And all the fruit went bad
That’s when it seemed like things weren’t going right where it’s going there is no light
And then the summer turned to night and there’s no light
There’s just flight. And the summer sighed. And you won’t try…
There was a time when we were loving glowing love
We stopped in our tracks and we blurred all the facts, It all fit like a glove
Even the people then they filled the air with light
And life was not the thing it is now.
There was no stress or strife.
Track Name: Seasons
Seasons change I know I can be
Standing tall like an old willow tree
Needing it’s rest indefinitely

I don’t wanna know the end to be
When they come to chop down the tree
Mountains fall in harmony
As rocks get carried by the sea

Way down where the water boils
No one gets out till the fall
Hearing the way behind the door
No one gets out till the fall

Seasons change oh where will we be
Just get up past a quarter to three
Taking the test indefinitely

I don’t wanna know the end to be
When they come to chop down the tree
Mountains fall in harmony
As rocks get carried by the sea

Way down where the water boils
No one gets out till the fall
Hearing the way behind the door
No one gets out till the fall
Track Name: Dream Next Door
You were the one that I was waiting for
In the dream that happened next door
In the dream all the world we won
That dream came to me but you went gone
They love you…
You were the dream I was waiting on
Don’t know why you made me wait so long
Wil you stay will you feel in my shoes
A lucid day, anything we choose
Track Name: Idiot
You are an idiot I am just watching it
Pour right out of your hole
Sophomoric, but too late to call it
You said it out loud for us all
Now it’s right there waiting for you
Where you dropped it, drunk on your stool
You can’t talk right. Trying to walk right
I am an idiot, I’m done ignoring it. Overdoing it all.
The stupid decisions are crazy and starting to rub my face on the wall
Now the outcome is waiting for me. And it’s got roots just like this damn tree
I can talk right. Trying to walk right.
Now you’re behind the walling and people are calling
They think you know nothing but there wrong you know something
You play like your’e sleeping, ‘cause you enjoy the creeping up
Into the surprise and the brightness in their eyes
Now let’s stop there and think what is true
What you said when drunk on your stool
Trying to talk right. When you can’t even walk right.
Track Name: Singularity
Get it right now. Youʼre too elated.
Shot on site, but the feeling faded.
Devices they connect, but they divide the decisive divisive.
Subsist with the fest. Put a string on a wrench.
Devices paying prices, feeding wires and beating itʼs core.
This is the night where the light ainʼt bright.
From the slight of the hand to the thrill of it all
You merged with the less, and you consist of the more.
Become the one human computer man... the computerman.
Get it right now. Youʼre too elated. Shot on site, but the feeling faded.
