Track Name: Stand
The chorus is you need us
Until you scratch away the surface
And it's a bomb
It's a bomb
The fuse is the excuse
Choking up on the spark of change was lint flint of this brain
And the spiral down is rising up like a burning church
Check where your heart lies
Take a broader look at who's getting hurt
And know, and know, and know you're better than this hole
It goes so low

I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Follow tracks in the sand to a blinded man down on his knees
I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Form my own allies, decide, provide, for myself I speak

Say who's watching after you while they're stealing for themselves
The mirror under cotton shoes was placed by parasitic yells
Non-fiction is giant' indifferent defiance
The difference between words and actions
Is more than just neuron connection
More than just neuron connections
Prey by fear or have intention

I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Follow tracks in the sand to a blinded man down on his knees
I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Form my own allies, decide, provide, for myself I speak

Do you lean on somebody else
Or do you stand on your own, do you stand on your own
Do you lean on somebody else
Do you stand, do you stand on your own
Do you stand on your own

I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Follow tracks in the sand to a blinded man down on his knees
I'm on my own two feet
I'm on my own two feet
Form my own allies, decide, provide, for myself I speak
Track Name: Set Your Phasers to Stun
You think you're made of marble
People see you eyes wide
It's true your heart's a stone
And their judgement's in their eyes, in their eyes

The owl hoots says great men
Are backed by a woman of equal measure
But that means no one's behind you, oh, when you
Face her talking rainy weather

Set your phasers to stun
You've lost all reception
Already taken for granted
Her fairy tale has lost enchantment
Getting by

William shakes his peers
Such tragedy from love
If she don't think she's worth it, oh
She lives a witch's curses, cursed love
What have we become

The holy water flows
From grateful mountain snows
Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
A new perspective
Shakes the riffs in the ground

Set your phasers to stun
You've lost all reception
Already taken for granted
Her fairy tale has lost enchantment
Getting by

Set your phasers to stun
You've lost all reception
Already taken for granted
Her fairy tale has lost enchantment
Getting by
Track Name: On Fire
Promote me, enthrone me
Raise a glass, cheer the victor on
My head's held high, can't see what's beneath me
Charisma and style like you could ever teach these
On trial 'cause I'm stealing the girls' heart
Sly smile I got one with the best parts
No limit wherever I walk
And finesse when I rock

Please excuse this humble brag
Oh I swear it's deserving
I keep my mouth shut like a trap
But the truth can be burning

I got my fancy shoes
I'm drip drip drippin' with cool and I
Make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before
The way I move draws attention from masses
Eyes steady in the shadow of glasses
I make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before

Like the fine blurry line between crazy and genius
Your soul will be better but I'll still make you nervous
Your little speech bubble is a blank white page
And like a fine red wine I get better with age

Feel me enter across the floor
Are you feeling the tension
Because the moment you meet me
Holds belief in suspension

I got my fancy shoes
I'm drip drip drippin' with cool and I
Make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before
The way I move draws attention from masses
Eyes steady in the shadow of glasses
I make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before

Smoke and fire lead me to the floor
Shiver your spine, oh, by the steady of my own
Smoke and fire lead me to the floor
Shiver your spine, oh, by the steady of my own
By the steady of my own
By the stready of my own

By the steady of my own
By the steady of my own
By the steady of my own

I got my fancy shoes
I'm drip drip drippin' with cool and I
Make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before
The way I move draws attention from masses
Eyes steady in the shadow of glasses
I make my way across the floor
I'm on fire like never before
Track Name: All Too Familiar
The headaches of our fathers
Climb the ladders of a generation
And they're always up ahead
As we cycle once again
Will they ever resolve
Feeling sentimental
For the loss of it all

Drop the clutch let the teeth start gnashing
Head left for a while til we end up right
This is all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar

Hurry up and wait
Hurry up and wait to pass the torch again
To the runner moving swiftly out of sight
We didn't even know the game could be over
If we didn't sacrifice for sake of the blue sky

Drop the clutch let the teeth start gnashing
Head left for a while til we end up right
This is all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar

Drop the clutch let the teeth start gnashing
Head left for a while til we end up right
This is all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar
All, all too familiar
Track Name: Refuel
This room it is foreign, a suit tailored for me
Suddenly sits misshapen
There are these cave paintings
On the walls of this great ballroom
And an eastern moving sun sees me laugh, laugh, laughing in crowds
Laughing in crowds

I went out into the wild
Heard the same voice calling my name
What I am to become at such height is now stalling
Go
Go

A pillar in matchsticks feels no shadow of fear
This collage holds appeal in a mirror
Ground breaking news about the cracks in the ceiling
The cracks aren’t the news but the ceiling I’m seeing
It's the ceiling I'm seeing

I went out into the wild
Heard the same thing calling my name
What I am to become at such height is now stalling
Go
Go

The fuel space is empty and open
The sparks ignite set the room aflame
The priest and the sinner both agree
A volcano explodes before you know its name

I went out into the wild
Heard the same thing calling my name
What I am to become at such height is now stalling
Go
Go
Track Name: I Am a Ghost
It’s amazing
Control tower to the pilots guide them safely
For a second lose connection leave the passengers bracing
This is crazy. Time was wasting like a pack of dogs dying;
Because they measured their teeth to the scale of a hunting snare

Scaly fish enforce beheadings as they blubber underwater
A rock encrusted crown to he who rides the highest wave
While a man who built a city with no banner to his name
Puts a flag on top a mountain made of knowledge that he came

Could the reason they don’t notice be that those who know they’re leading
Trust the ground to keep them grounded rather than a glass ceiling

A rainfall of egos sees all too familiar shoes
Like a drowning 8 ball spring the claws right on cue
But the bruises and the news are only noticed by the mute
View the masses climbing ladders gouging eyes to be confused

There are holes in our hands
We wear gloves not to boast
I nod to young wrinkled faces
We embrace our ghost
Track Name: Fall Anthem
The sun comes in cascading on her shoulder
Through a soft movie lens, it’s the only way I see her
And as the nights grow cold, her body’s getting warmer
The softest down in the sheets can’t compare

As the leaves hit the ground, I count my blessings having you here
This textured air surrounds, this moment with bluest starry light
September air moves through October so damn quick
And as the autumn falls, so do I into your love

She looks with such an honest brown Royalty in her gait
Pillars of white line paths showered in golden spades
And as the nights grow cold, this feeling’s getting stronger
In these arms she slows and speaks without need of breath
Like a soft embrace

As the leaves hit the ground, I count my blessings having you here
This textured air surrounds, this moment with bluest starry light
September air moves through October so damn quick
And as the autumn falls, so do I into your love


Call this another anthem about how in love with you I am
Call this another anthem I’ll be there when you reach out your hand
Call this another anthem about how in love with you I am
Call this another anthem I’ll be there from season to season

‘Cause I’m in love
I’m in love
In this fall air
In this fall air
Track Name: Lullaby
Sit in the silence
From the ground comes songs of love
Let them carry you on waves of seas
Slipping time where none cane be
Slip your eyes to softly sleep

A brushstroke blue I sing to you
A brushstroke green paints the scene
A cradled body by a mother’s touch
Ease this logic and wash with dreams

Far away I hold you still
Good morning I love you, I always will
From the wind come songs of love
Let them carry you on waves of seas
Track Name: One Thing Left
In a picture window on the thoroughfare I saw your flowers in a vase
I thought I’d like to pick them up as a surprise to see the smile on your face
As you tend to them with water I will look across the room and ask myself
How did I ever find a ladder tall enough to pull you off the top shelf?

And I’ll continue singing all these love songs so that my voice will make you melt
And I will practice making dinner so I can cheer you up, oh, when you’re down
And I will never lie so I can be a rock beneath your weary worried feet
And I’ll be all these things for you and all that’s left is for us to meet

On the day that I first see you will I stand upon an unsuspecting stage
I bet I’ll never see you coming and to see you I’ll believe that day in fate
I’ll be off that day in flight and for the first time I’ll be frightened I may crash
That I may never sing this song for you and let you know with you this role is cast

And I’ll continue singing all these love songs so that my voice will make you melt
And I will practice making dinner so I can cheer you up, oh, when you’re down
And I will never lie so I can be a rock beneath your weary worried feet
And I’ll be all these things for you and all that’s left is for us to meet

Oh when will I find you
I hope it’s somtime soon
And when I find you
I know my heart will beat this tune
How I find you
If I knew I’d grease the gears
So hurry along
We’ve wasted oh so many years

And I need you here right now to hold and to love
I’ve grown as far as I can all alone
And I’m ready to take care of you
To hold your heart if ever you may fall

And I’ll continue singing all these love songs so that my voice will make you melt
And I will practice making dinner so I can cheer you up, oh, when you’re down
And I will never lie so I can be a rock beneath your weary worried feet
And I’ll be all these things for you and all that’s left is for us to meet

Oh when will I find you
I hope it’s somtime soon
And when I find you
I know my heart will beat this tune
How I find you
If I knew I’d grease the gears
So hurry along
We’ve wasted oh so many years
So hurry along, we've wasted oh so many years
Track Name: Nostalgia
Look towards the wonderous starry night
Blow your mind lift and close your eyes
Feel your body start a weightless rise
And marvel things unquantified

Hold a mirror to those dreams you see
Drown the noise for favored melodies
It was simple back when, when we were kids
Being airplanes running through the wind

Love was a motive, love kept us safe
Love gave us hugs and sang us nightly serenades
We lose it sometimes under moments of pain
It’s always inside us, it can be reclaimed

The wars we face cast lengthily shadows
Love survives even through the battle
The context can be hard to swallow
It’s in the past now and tomorrow

Love was a motive, love kept us safe
Love gave us hugs and sang us nightly serenades
We lose it sometimes under moments of pain
It’s always inside us, it can be reclaimed

So love, so love, as you once believed
So love, so love, it will set you free
So love, so love, as you once believed
So love, so love, it will set you free

Love was a motive, love kept us safe
Love gave us hugs and sang us nightly serenades
We lose it sometimes under moments of pain
It’s always inside us, it can be reclaimed
Track Name: Life
I’m just living life one day at a time, sailing steady through this ocean
I’m a kingly portrait in hallway light even when I’m feeling broken
I see mountains in the distance and the valleys I’ve been in them
Speaking fondly of the changes, in my ears rings carpe diem

Religion, the war, the love being made
The arguments in walls whose affect is great
The feelings of joy and the feelings of fear
Mean yes you’re alive, yes you’re alive
The jails we build, a birthday wish
The smile that comes when you hear you’re missed
We all dissolve in the darkest night
So laugh and sing, yes you’re alive

I stand in waves that toss and throw, then feel alive once footed
See gravity in items that, the scientific wouldn’t
I’ve said my prayers and I’ve lost my faith, left blissful in confusion
Broken chains for the freedom knowing rules are all illusion

A loss of faith, your own applause
Accepting someone else’s flaws
The feelings of joy and the feelings of fear
Mean yes you’re alive, yes you’re alive
A death too soon, the break of a laugh
An upset friend who is calling back
We all dissolve in the darkest night
So laugh and sing, yes you’re alive

You can fight like a boxer but the gloves wear thin
Or wait for an invite to carry you in
Some cry poor me and others fear to fail
And the ones who say yes seem to live tall tales

The birth and the grave and all that’s in between
The moments of the day that make us sing
The feelings of joy and the feelings of fear
Mean yes you’re alive, yes you’re alive
From dust we’re made to dust we’ll go
So blast through life so you’ll grow your soul
We all dissolve in the darkest night
So laugh and sing, yes you’re alive
