New Day 03:29
A new day I’ve gotta find a way To try to stay Relevant Oh it’s hell ain’t it baby Saw a flower pedal Hit the ground, it made no sound Now what was it I was worried about Anyway? I’ve been chasing time But lately I find There’s always time It’s your state of mind So give me every little thing I’ll trade it all just to be A little broke but doing me Cuz baby life’s just... Back again to chase another trend Change my skin, forgettin’ Who I have been lately Then I felt a little drop of rain The small refrain Telling me it’s all the same Either way Gonna make my peace With all these things Weighing down on me Just let it all be Give me every little thing I’ll trade it all just to be A little broke but doing me Because baby life’s just...

I held it all In my hands To keep it safe Peeling back my fingers I saw just sand sinkin’ Through them Why can’t I be content With what I have surrounding There’s a light Always flashing in my dreams What I have is what I need but What I need is clarity From whoever’s staring back at me Pleasure and pain Often share The same name And desire is fate’s lover And fate is just Hunger and fear Why can't I be content With what I have surrounding There’s a light Always flashing in my dreams What I have is what I need but What I need is clarity From whoever’s staring back at me Hear it starting, Feel it matching every breath You start to crave it Foreign & familiar Crawling like a Serpentine siren Crawling into all that you desire Hate it, need it, Can you even see it, This time swear it’s all You needed Want it, I don’t think I want it

When’d you become such a part of me? A hair tie left behind Ran me through Swore I’d found you on this pedestal But since you have come down You’ve not been you I think casual was the cause A fear to be the one So involved I found something I think I need a little more of but Picture perfect Always end up hurting us I’ll go and Fall back in the breeze And call myself free It’s easier to like What you don’t see I’ve seen my heaven & my demise I’ve seen them overlap A thousand times I think casual was the cause A fear to sell your soul To no applause I found something I think I need a little more of but Picture perfect Always end up hurting us Feelin’ something ya but We’ll both say nothing Back & forth till we’re left both Coastin’, Knowin’ We’re caught in the breeze Thinkin’ we’re free It’s easier to like what you don’t see

Be My Guide 03:55
You spoke of love as if it Were a passing highway sign A one time guide Shimmering in the light While I tried to prove That the sun and moon decide it for you Like a fool denies The fire before his eyes Still you keep crossing my mind So let the rhythm lead the rhyme And if I fall out of time Be my guide Be my guide How long can a flame burn Before the wind claims her How long can I cry Over my own lie One day the sky will clear Shining a light on my foolish fears Maybe I’ll have learned What you deserve Cuz you keep crossing my mind So let the rhythm lead the rhyme And if I fall out of time Be my guide Be my guide You could always see through I couldn’t see you You keep crossing my mind Rhythm and rhyme Be my guide Be my guide Cuz you keep crossing my mind So let the rhythm lead the rhyme And if I fall out of time Be my guide Be my guide

Another night under neon And desire skies Chasing pools of blue And a crooked smile Oh if there was forever Or even just one night I howl with Ms. Main Street To the moonlight Then soft she says "Are you sure you're not blind Or misguiding my overgrown appetite" She doesn't know that she Holds the key To everything It’s written down her spine Like a light Shining Telling me that This time it's alright Now I'm under porch light Where the mystery fades Where the sound became the song And remained But who are you If not for me And who am I If not for we Then soft she says "Are you sure you're not blind Or misguiding my overgrown appetite" She doesn't know that she Holds the key To everything It’s written down her spine Like a light Shining Telling me that This time it's alright

Holy Captor 03:27
Spent too much of my life Explaining myself to me Kept up like a vice Posing everything pristine Dreams of violet eyes And a crystalline smile Left where I began Just spinnin’ like a turnstile I caught my reflection in some Shattered panes of glass I had to laugh remembering Most things don’t last All this time wanting someone to set me free Saw my signs in only things surrounding Oh I never thought that Never thought It could be me that I need Just to be set free I’ve been over thinking a little too much Oh it’s such a waste of time Trying to rewind Fighting to survive The Friday night rapture Still lookin’ for my Next Holy Captor I need to believe in something That can’t be taken away But for now I’ll try to be fine with Being okay All this time spent searching for what can’t be seen Saw my signs in only thing surrounding Oh I never thought that Never thought it could be me that I need Just to be set free I’ve been over thinking a little too much Oh it’s such a waste of time Trying to rewind

Pride 04:42
Swore I saw an angel approach But it was just the angle I am told Living out these fables wove In the back of the mind Let the fire burn bright Singing, Don’t ya know, that every stone Will one day sink back to the sea, That this mountain you’ve made of sand Will blow away in the breeze So then why is she haunting me? What’s never lived can’t die… Is that all that’s protecting me? My Pride? It seems it’s all fallen through You’ve outrun your pursuit Rest now child Rest now child Face to face with my own fate I asked for clarity, but was told to wait Funny how what tests your faith Is often what you need To make it all seem real Singing, Oh no, she got too close So i’ll go and shed my skin again, This wall you built, from the river’s silt Wash away with the rain So then how do I care for her? They say it just takes time.. Is that some form of bravery? Or Pride? It seems it’s all fallen through You’ve outrun your pursuit Rest now child Rest now child

I was the one Believing all I dreamt of A boy I saw so consumed Planting seeds that never grew So I threw it away My insatiable ever growing cage, asking Who is this really for? Myself or who I try to be? Take your time Breathe in each day Leave tomorrow undefined The same old crime Won’t get easier With each new disguise It’s all the same I know each scene frame by frame by frame Why am I so confused Miscommunicating it?

Swiggum 04:06
Blue sky beaming Lazy day dreaming Doing fine with nothing at all The sun is singing sweet melody The grass is growing green harmonies Here and gone just like the breeze This is all I’ll ever need So much time spent trying to find A little light in my life Flip on a tune, and fall in a groove Oh I’m shining so bright Each day is a song, we’re playing along Until it’s time to move on And when that day comes, I’ll know I’ve done Just what suits the song The best things don’t last too long Easy breeze riding Sidewalk surviving Heading any which way I please Pretty sure I know what it means Pretty sure it’s all just a dream Floating down the same sibylline stream Wondering if what is will always be
10.
So, you’re back on top your concrete hill Screaming about how You know best But who’s it best for Who cares anymore It’s all a media massage A made up cause The great mirage Of self identity We see what we want And want what we see Well, it’s all happening Why do you fear what you don’t understand It’s like hiding your left from your right hand Don’t trust what you see on your screen It’s all just make believe Drawn between you and I An invisible line Saying only one can be right Well I tried so many times Tried so many times But I couldn’t break the divide I see what I want I want what I see It’s all happening

Release 04:17
Collapse in the current And feel your body pulsing with the sound of the drums Some form of freedom Out of body; wholly numb Oh release release Pulling that silver string that has no end I've heard this voice shout Every time my thoughts echo too loud Every time this prince grew too proud Every time I fell in this silent shroud I heard.... It's night time all the time And I feel it How was I to know it's only in my brain Crawl back to the clearing Search for that feeling that you cannot define My eyes are sewed shut But somehow I can see the lights are clear now Release release My spirit sings when I set it free I've seen the face of God In the cracks up in the ceiling In the stranger face I was passing In the mirror staring back at me It’s there It's night time all the time And I feel it How was I to know it's only in my brain?
