Track Name: Left Behind
No it’s not- it’s not easy
no its not a simple soliloquy
It’s a rippling obscurity - all the time

No it’s not- always breezy
It’s 1984 social bureaucracy
Controlled is finally the way to be

Don’t stop, don’t stop believing
Don’t stop, the money will stop and will be societies left behind

I’ve got a synthetic life, gonna live forever attitude
Is constantly on my mind

That thing is loaded - it’s gonna go off
It’s acting like it’s got it own mind

Looking for those - it knows deep inside
Don’t wanna think about their life or their time

People laugh at you, and your false sense of conspiracy
You question all forms of societal concurrency

But that thing is loaded - it’s gonna go off
A machine of a thousand arms government crimes
Track Name: Sinister Romance
It’s gotten where, where - I need
Symbiosis of the heart is - part of me
Growing like a seed- into the dark

Shows me the universe was just one big spark
Just one big spark - Just one big spark - Just one spark

Endless mornings I start - to figure it out
Thoughts of happy moments float - floating around
Dreams hinder and give me sa sa sa sounds

Shows me the world should be - Responsible
Responsible somehow - People need to think responsible now - Right now

A real romance
Feel the truth within Nobody hurts
Bodies full of sin
A happy heart
I can do without
But a sinister romance, Is full of doubt

Pile of paper blowing, gas station - parking lot
Wind takes a gust, will it meet it’s fate or - will it not
The hood is just as important as the world
Start local then if you would, and just believe you could
Raise consciences, oh you really would
Oh please you surely could, And it would work

Write it down it - begins
Word is mighty, mightier with - the pen
One bright star, is under your skin

Eventual inhibition - - - until the end
The world is floating through our fingertips
The dreams of many men - Gone if we don’t have consciousness within

A real romance
Feel the truth within Nobody hurts
Bodies full of sin
A happy heart
I can do without
But a sinister romance, Is full of doubt
Track Name: Naive
Something about you I can’t explain - think about you night and day
Your magic comes over me and it feels right

Jumped through the hoops even more
Mostly end up on the floor and when it over

Who was I to think - Really could survive - Way that you were used to
You grew up poor, but you wanted more, more than I could give you

I was naive in so many ways- Idealism was on my brain- on my brain
So I wash the tears from my face and I move on

Didn’t wake up, had a dream - I was on- I was on my knees
Diving down like a submarine in the ocean full of thieves

And I really enjoyed my time with you - while you were true- you were true
You grew up poor, but wanted more, more than I could give you
Track Name: Side to Side
You had dreams of being, wealthy and known
Business was busy, but you we’re all alone

You had ideas of seeing the world from those eyes
No clue how to roll from side to side

You had the world in your hands at one time you see
Dwindled away by your the greed and mirky life

You had visions of living in a comfortable place
But creativity crawls in a seedier space

You had to run, run, run, run, run
You had to run, run, run, run, run

You had for cover but in so many ways
Fate, fate, fate Followed you into that deep dark cave

You wanted material objects you could adore
They won’t make you happy because you’d be poor

You had dreams of being, wealthy and known
Business was busy, but you we’re all alone

You had ideas of seeing the world from those eyes
No clue how to roll from side to side

You had to run, run, run, run, run
You had to run, run, run, run, run

You had for cover but in so many ways
Fate, fate, fate Followed you into that deep dark cave

You had the world in your hands at one time you see
Dwindled away by your the greed and mirky life
Track Name: Midnight in Austin
Midnight in Austin, We're walking the street
New years just upon us and of course we can't agree
Issues in the air, easy to see
She won't  look past them, Or solve them with me

She wants out
She wants out for good
She wants out
She wants out

The excuse tents to be - That it’s all about me
The excuse tents to be
She says she wants to set me free
She want out

Chemicals and money, On her mind
Everyone knows that's what life's about

Even though the kids about to change
The truth doesn't matter when your selfish and estranged

She wants out
She wants out for good
She wants out
She wants out

The excuse tents to be, That it’s all about me
The excuse tents to be, She says she wants to set me free- She want out

Midnight in Austin, Midnight in Austin
We were walking the street, we can't agree
Track Name: Basement
We started way below the ground
In a place that had a very small sound

We all felt, we felt the need
To press play on the movie that would be

In a basement far underneath the earth
where the echoes oh the echoes hurt

Two by two in a dirty, dirty room
Where the good and bad of people really loom

Guns were drawn as it would seem - There ain’t trust in technology
A made up lye- when shit hits the fan
No, he’s everybody's friend - he’s their man
Long way home and holding hands
The earth spinning round into quicksand

Three by three dreaming in a magazine
Six by six had to pick up the next fix

We knew right there that it would work
As he smoked a cigarette with a smirk

Space trip, a white suit, turned me on
In this rocket ship blast off just before the dawn

If we can out run than their god
We’ll be off the ground and leave the book without further cause

Uh uh uh - Impossible speed
Uh uh uh - The only ones who can breath
Uh uh uh - I just can’t bare
Uh uh uh - Fog clears and the truth is well aware

It’s all atmospheric fuzz that you see
Close the door and let the emotion really bleed
Million miles a minute baby - We stole the car
Fast on the scene in a minute - Like a shiny star

We started way below the ground - In a place that had a very small sound
Track Name: Starting to be Parallel
Started my walk outside and picked you up
Remember to lock the door to my heart
Grew up learning things, the hard way and it cut me up
And I can tell you’re gonna be pretty sharp

You you you make me want more of you
Remember to lock the door to my heart
You you you make me so happy
I Guarantee someday you’ll make this hard

I don’t want - to have - to walk away
No I don’t make it so we can’t understand
I don’t wanna take you from my heart
Burn it, transform it, take me back start

Uh, uh, all all all over again
Uh, starting all all all over
Finding my love again

I don’t want - to have - to walk away
No I don’t make it so we can’t understand                             
I don’t wanna take you from my heart
Burn it, transform it, take me back start

10 Years going on by - Don’t ask why
Time time is passing us - No rush to abide

And we’re right here, where we’re supposed to be
Right here on time - With everything

SEE the stars how they shine
They’re in parallel with your mind
SEE the stars how they shine
So bright in your eyes

One - Piece of the sky
Two - People holding tight
Three - Blinded by time
Four - I will let it go
Track Name: Tomorrow
Tonight it’s you and me
Tonight we can see if can even make it work this time
There's always tomorrow

Tomorrow we wake up late
Tomorrow I want to stay with you tonight
We fight to say good bye

You and me we have history no one knows
But the truth is I fell for you some time ago
You and me we’ve done things I haven't told
Oh the stories, they wouldn’t understand, are in my soul

Tonight you and me
Tonight let’s see if I can keep you this time
There may not be a tomorrow
Tomorrow I still have you
Tomorrow lets see what you wanna do tonight
Can’t get you off my mind

You and me we have history no one knows
But the truth is I fell for you some time ago
You and me we’ve done things I haven't told
The stories, they wouldn’t understand, are in my soul

Tonight it’s you and me
Tonight we can see if can even make it work this time
There's always tomorrow
Tomorrow we wake up late
Tomorrow I want to stay with you tonight
There may not be a tomorrow

You and me we have history no one knows
But the truth is I fell for you some time ago
You and me we’ve done things I haven't told
The stories, they wouldn’t understand, are in my soul
