Track Name: WISE (when it's so easy)
give me the keys cause I got a degree and I’m ready to feed all one hundred of me / new life’s got me looking under the door / what for / to settle the score / pit bull sniffing trying to get in my space / children tripping trying to get in my way / and I just want to get paid but it’s so hard when it’s so easy / his area code spelled GOD in all caps though he himself was hopeless as a generation with no name / they had eyes resembling lasers / we found fun in bad behavior / how does one ruin something so mundane / never stop learning or you might get dumb / shake it to the rythm of the hum drum / my mind’s going numb / my mind’s gone numb / never stop laughing or you just might cry / take it from the wisdom of a lullaby / in your dreams you can fly / it’s like waking up from a deep sleep a fantasy / turning over a new leaf / need a refrigerator for all that beef / I’ll let you have a piece if you show me your teeth / if you give me the keys cause I got a degree and I’m ready to feed all one hundred of me / And I just want to get paid but it’s so hard when it’s so easy / never stop learning or you might get dumb / shake it to the rythm of the hum drum / my mind’s going numb / my mind’s gone numb / never stop laughing or you just might cry / take it from the wisdom of a lullaby / in your dreams you can fly
Track Name: Pity
your negativity is poisoning the room / sometimes I can’t believe there are people like you / do you listen/ do you ever look to see that there are other people and they’re suffering too / so I’m standing behind the counter cornered listening to you complain cause I look like a body / well call the coroner and let her explain / you’ve got enough pity for two in your veins / I’m spread thin like icing on a sheet cake / snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake / you can’t be everything at once / can’t be the hunter and the hunted / I’m a liability in this room / sometimes I can’t believe I’ve been here since June listening to the murmur of a sea of people looking at themselves when they look at me / so I’m standing behind the counter disappointed sipping on a cold light roast cause I look like a body but feel like a ghost and I’ve got enough pity for two in my veins / I’m spread thin like icing on a sheet cake / snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake / you can’t be everything at once / can’t be the hunter and the hunted / you cant have everything you want / can’t be the hunter and the hunted
Track Name: Let It Shine
look at the rain as it shines up the night through your windowpane and keeps me sane as I know all things grow and they must decay / how is this night not like the others / asphalt mirror let me see more than I hear / tell my brothers I said goodnight / told them I cared as I meant it at the time / now the dream’s gone by and all that’s there is a happy memory / they won’t bow to me / I am now your queen / how is this night not like the others / asphalt mirror let me see more than I hear / tell my brothers I said goodnight and come morning let it shine
Track Name: Roaming Stars
funny thing about age / everyone does it in a different way / the more we collect the more we object and days become like uncashed checks / some don’t get the respect they need but you can’t wake up grumpy if he never sleeps / so I stayed up all night to see the sunrise then it dawned on me / there is a rain and it’s torrential / as technology grows exponential / some are born to survive it / the rest are left to drown / but it’s only life / don’t let it get you down / I know cause I stayed up all night to see the sunrise / then it dawned on me / it’s true we are all roaming stars
Track Name: Anatomy Of An Illusion
how is it so easy to appease me / out of sight / out of spite you deceive me / thought you might / and the song just writes itself / you are a photo on a shelf / you are the spirit of a smile / and I thought for a second that you died / but I’ve never been better than now / I just keep getting better somehow / so thank you for thinking that I was not worth your time / my body bombarded / my senses gone wild / I’d scream but it’s never been my style / it’s all going to shit and there’s not enough room at the inn for me / I’m already tired / may never retire / they say that we actually started the fire so one of a kind or one in a million / what’ll it be / I think you’re forgetting what you’re missing / though I don’t blame you for telling then kissing / cause we’ve all got bills to pay / needs to get met and lies to say to get our way / And I’ve never been better than now / I just keep getting better somehow / though it’s hard to believe that I was not worth your time / now it’s 5 and my mind’s already run a mile like who are these prodigies stealing my style / concealing the spots I don’t want them to see til I’m someone new / don’t act like you don’t do it to / but I’ve never been better than now / I just keep getting better somehow
Track Name: Tire Bouchon
we never did find le tire bouchon but never gave up hope that there might be one / pushing our cork in the bottle / pushing our cork to the bottom of the bottle
Track Name: Give Me A Likeness
amidst all the muck and the torment / the tossing and turning / the wondering what wanting more meant / she’s made up her mind / some people are not worth the pain / what on earth has she got to gain looking for insight from behind closed eyes / so out with the tragic / in with the magic / something feels different now / then she had this realization not to do what doesn’t feel right / no innocent infatuation / no bleeding without the bite / she said brother I will pray for your soul / that’s the sweetest kind of control / I’ll stand here with my head held high killing you from the inside / so out with the tragic / in with the magic / something feels different now / light in the darkness / calm in the chaos / give me a likeness to thou / she said darling it was never a waste / we’re all just modifying our taste / I’m not done spinning around the sun but if I want to be great then I’d better make haste / light in the darkness / calm in the chaos / give me a likeness to thou
Track Name: The Revival
I’ve been to the revival / I walked out on a high / I swore it on the Bible I won’t let the momentum die / I wanna make it and not just talk about it and not forsake it for goodness sake / I wanna change once and for all so I keep praying I don’t fall back on the woman I was yesterday / this time it’s different / this time it’s vision / easy to be broken when you’ve never been broke / I’d swear I had misspoken if ever I had spoke / I wanna yell it from the rooftops and not just tell it to an empty cup / that I’m in love with a dream and I might need you on my team cause this time I’m not waking up / this time it’s different / this time it’s vision / hundreds of hearts all beating for the same thing / hundreds of lungs all breathing for the same damn thing / and this time it’s different / this time it’s vision
Track Name: Dusty
you were always good at keeping a distance and I was always good at letting it happen / figured you were none of my business / so you went and fell off the map / I guess that’s life right / a series of highs and silent goodbyes / wishing them well though you don’t feel they’ll be fine but what can you do / a whisper of a wish holds no weight in a world like this / you were always good at keeping them guessing and I was always good at calling you names when you weren’t around and I was allowed to be vulnerable / I guess that’s life right / a series of highs and bitter goodbyes / wishing them hell through your teeth as you fake a smile / but what can you do / a whisper of a wish holds no weight in a world like this
Track Name: Fading Slow
this tide is gonna win me over / will these sands keep time forever / I’m fine just looking over your shoulder / face to the wind our skin is already leather / we’re already fading slow since the moment we started / rise and fall like the final break of a restless wave under angry sun / it’s over as quickly as it’s begun / I’d give all the four leaf clovers for a little innocence / a light bursting from the black horizon / and I’m fine just keeping up with your footprints / running from the world our legs are already fading slow since the moment we started / rise and fall like the final break of a restless wave under angry sun / it’s over as quickly as it’s begun
