Track Name: Rain
Realizations of fading away into a storm of memories.
Up above, the sun trapped behind the grey
I felt it's warmth once before...

Once in a dream I held the sun in the palm of my hand.
Righteousness shined so bright in my eyes screaming,
"Live! Live! The storm is distracting you! Please wake up now!"
Opening my eyes, the metaphor wakes and shakes me so hard.
I must live my life before I fall asleep.

I can see past right now since I woke
It's crazy how much dreaming can help
When it rains, I don't want to walk in it, don't want to get out of bed,
I just sulk in my problems, my doubts, and regrets.
Why can't I break free?

Once in a dream we held the sun in the palm of our hand.
Righteousness shined so bright in our eyes screaming,
"Live! Live! The storm is distracting you all! Wake up now!"
Opening our eyes, the metaphor wakes and shakes us so hard.
We must live our lives before we fall asleep.
Track Name: Grow
Hey Mr., your life's a mess.
If you want a challenge, I will put you to the test.
You're not a man, not a man in my eyes. You're not a man, not a man, you're not a man.
Can't you think ahead? Organize yourself with priorities in check?
Grow up for a sec?
You're just a joke, just a joke to me. You're just a joke, just a joke to me.

Calm yourself,
Don't worry what they say.
With Ego intact,
Change lies in you.

Unless something magic brings you to life,
You'll never change.
Time's a killer and your hesitance hands it the knife.
You'll never change, never change; I know you.
You'll never change, never change.
You'll never change.
Track Name: The Key to Happiness
Gossip is key to my happiness
It makes me laugh and laugh
I think I will take care of myself
For the chance to talk bad about you

I pretend to be happy
I will suck the contentment from your heart
As it beats in my mouth

I will spit it out and dance on it

I pretend to be happy
I will suck the contentment from your heart
As it beats before my eyes
Pretend to be happy
May we see what others feel when we talk
Like there's nothing else in the world
Track Name: She Waits
She waits below the faded maple innocently
With gun in hand.
Keeps it loaded just so he knows that is where she stands
She waits...

He walks to greet her with no ounce of fear
In his grave, blue eyes.
Keeps his heart locked just so he knows not to be surprised.
She waits...

On an Autumn day, a sepia twilight,
Time is frozen in a bitter world
Love is rotten, almost forgotten
Timid, dark angel falls in love
(Reckless night-rider wakes his heart)

She wakes her eyes, those big brown eyes
And she knows her heart won't change
He takes her hand, his fast heart ran
And he knows his heart won't change
Track Name: Set Me Free
I've lost myself, come capture me
I've lost myself, come set me free
Time swallowed me whole
I've lost control, life took me over
Too many bills, too much drama
Time swallowed me whole
I've lost my mind
I've lost control
Hamster wheel, I'm losing breath
Too many bills, I ponder death
Time swallows me whole
I've lost my mind
I've lost control

Pull me back to reality...

I've lost myself, come set me free
I've lost myself, come capture me
Time swallows me whole
I've lost my mind
I've lost control

Pull me back to reality...
Track Name: Anchor
"I'm free!"
She screamed
She never thought she get this day
No him
Freedom
She feels like she can do anything
When she's with him,
There's no desire
When he's gone her active self transpires

His presence is an anchor, when he's 'round she just ain't herself
Hopefully things will change, feelings rearrange
Their love is too rare to fade

"Sorry!"
He screamed
He never thought it'd go this far
No her
Not sure
Why he's not himself when shit goes bad

His presence is an anchor, when he's 'round she just ain't herself
Hopefully things will change, feelings rearrange
Their love is too rare to fade
Track Name: I Can See At Last
I can see at last
Change must come to stop the silence
Change must come to stop the silence

A passive lifestyle
I used to live this way til I woke
Yet I can still smile
Even though what remains seems to be broke

I see potential in you as an individual
You are essential to my happiness
I know you can change

A passive lifestyle
I used to live this way til I woke
Yet I can still smile
Even though what remains seems to be broke
Track Name: Can't Stay Awake (Ft. The Kamicosmonaut)
(ME)
I can't stay awake
Time is moving ever so quick
I want to see it all
Pretending to stay
Time leaves us waiting until we fall asleep
When we're waiting to awaken
Our dreams take us to a place
A cage to be shaken, caging the soul of me

(The Kamicosmonaut)
Time seems to thicken when your staring at a broken clock
I can hear the hands clapping don't stop, "Tick Tock"
Mind seems to quicken now it's running down the block
I feel the need to rest, no, I feel the need to rock
The mind's eye racing through the night like a colt does
Trying to figure exactly what it wasn't, what it was
Driven by death, yet I'm driving from it
Fearless in my Raybans
Triumph at the summit
The suns dropping like a bomb in the night sky
Sequence of warm canary colors serenaded by
A blank face to capture the laughter help within a question mark disaster
The master planned a picnic around falling debris
Never stalling, we started crawling.
Falling in love with it's beautiful disease
A template simply trying to bring us to our knees
We made away with an atlas, no we're swinging in the breeze

(ME)
Living this way
In my dreams and wishes
Keeps me moving on
I can't stay awake
I would love to stay here until we fall asleep
When we're waiting to awaken
To live knowing there's an end
A cage to be shaken, caging the soul of me

(The Kamicosmonaut)
The dawn of forever to sever the night
A lever to pull me together to make me alright
My endeavor to measure the pleasure delight
Can cause a nation to get up and insight the freedom of the mind
Remind the man at power this is your calling
A simple overhauling of your final hour
Empower your ability to see a coward's belief
Blindly you follow the sheep to find your own way home
But they're lying through their teeth
They're lying through their flesh and bone
...and though it's written in stone, it's not true

I sing to the moon just before I close my eyes
Dawn breaks hearts as the sun begins to rise
How many minutes will your night take?
Is it an escape or a surprise?
A sunburst explosion disguised.
Track Name: Post-Numb
The numb and somber days
When time pretended to stay
I'd sleep til noon, I'd hum my tune
The same old way
I hung down by the tracks
Where trains left and never came back
A place where you'll stay a poor fool
Until the world turns to black

I began to see that time had passed
Years and years of blurred memory
I could see myself at last
Clearly as a mirror showing me
Hands are off my eyes now
I don't abuse what comforts me

I could see that time had passed
Several years of blurred memory
I could see myself at last
Clearly as a mirror showing me
Love has blessed my life
The clouds part as the sun shines on me
Track Name: To Be
Faded one, the weight has brought you down
I once was there with the slings and the arrows
The Crows and the vultures
They scar me just the same

Shaded sun, the warmth once felt is gone
I once was there with the crows and the vultures
Slings and the arrows
They scar me just the same

Break free
Let go

I can see the wings hidden behind your back
I once was there with the slings and the arrows
The Crows and the vultures
They scar me just the same
Track Name: Unconsciously Living
Distorted broken ties
Taken friends, they've singed the ends
Goodbye
Among the snake skin, we lay

After all, this love will take us to our graves
Enslaved by hate until we open our eyes
And we wake up

Distorted empty lies
Mistaken friends, can they mend
Again?
Among the snake skin, we stand anew

After all, this love will take us to our graves
Enslaved by hate until we open our eyes
And we wake up

Ignorance kills like cancer, with time
Unconsciously living like a zombie inside
Miseducation, a sensational tradition
Ignition to changing this in time isn't bright
But we're missing the point
You can buy a fifth of vodka
But you can't buy a joint
Too many people pointing fingers with no one to appoint
Point the finger to your chest and change the man in the mirror
I'll talk really slow if the point ain't clear
After all, this love will take us to our graves
Enslaved by hate until we open our eyes
And we wake up
