Track Name: 86 on the Fly
Workin’
On the line
Sweatin’
Away my time
But thoughts of you
Keep me pushin’ through
‘Til the end
Your knife is sharp
Against my back
Your “hot down the line”
Does nothing but distract
So 86 on the fly
My three past lives

(Chorus)
Cuz' I told you when I
Saw your face
I wanted nothing but a
Galaxy of space
Away from you

Compressing all your thoughts
Does not a man make
There's icing on your gums
And your mentality is baked
So put a game face on
Because tonight will be
A long, long wait

Repeat Chorus

My heart's been julienned
A long time ago
In a place so far away
You might have known
But that doesn't mean
You have a right
To my soul

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Vines
I’ve been searching through my mind
Still there’s something I cannot find
I’ve been wandering around
Still hearing the same old sounds
Lightning strikes and the thunder roars
I am here with my aching bones

(Chorus)
I want you
to see me through
I want you
to let me be
I want you
to see me through
I want you
to set me free

I’ve got nothing to lose but time
Slipping away into the vines
Watching them creep along the wall
Attached to the bricks standing tall
The old has formed to something new
It’s becoming Déjà vu

Chorus

Then my breath gets swept away
Left with nothing more to say

Chorus
Track Name: One Less
The day is over
The light is gone
Let’s start a fire
And watch it burn

Nothing is new
It’s all been done
Wash, rinse, repeat
Is enough for fun

Show me something new
Shiny and clean
Something I can wreck
And douse in gasoline

(Chorus)
Burn! Burn!
Burn my mind!
Burn! Burn!
Burn my past!
No remorse!
Don’t look back!
Turn the page,
Perfect the craft!

Forgive me
For all I’ve done
Forgive me
For future wrongs to come

The smoke builds
And covers the scars
Bury the beauty
Washed along the shores

What I’ve done
I won’t forget
I told you to stay
And then you left

Chorus x 2

Drift wood, drift away
Little pebbles, smoky and grey
Driftwood, drift away
Little pebbles, smoky and grey

Chorus x 2
Track Name: Nothing Is Yours
Contradictions multiply.
Everything you say is a lie.
How can you tell
when you’re not well?
But everything is yours.
Oh, it’s all yours.
But everything is yours.
Everything is yours.

You have become numb.
Many turn to one.
Alone and shallow
no one will follow.
But it’s all yours.
Oh, it’s all yours.
But it’s all yours.
Oh, it’s all yours.

Your heart is black,
yeah, just like you wished.
Still repressing
what you missed.
Yeah, it’s all yours.
Oh, it’s all yours.
But it’s all yours.
Oh, it’s all yours.

Then brightness dulls.
When everything fades to nothing
but it’s all yours
no, nothing is
no, nothing is yours
Nothing is yours.
No, nothing is,
Nothing is yours.
Track Name: Winter's Parade
I want you to know
I need you to see
Your reflections are lost
Inside of me
Where are you now?
It’s hard to be
My sins wash away
In my own captivity

I’m breaking through
This hidden cage
The louder I scream
The more the bars give away
I want you to know
I need you to see
Your reflections are lost
Inside of me

I’m chasing ghosts
At the end of the day
Hearing your voices
In a winter’s parade
Where does this end?
Please set me free
My sins wash away
From your captivity!
Track Name: Songs After Surgery
Like a Cat Stevens song
I’m gonna heal with my words.
Better with a beat
Healthy with a hum

Like a poison or spell
I’m gonna spill it to hell.
Better with a beat
Healthy with a hum

These are
Songs after surgery
Songs after surgery

Like a cat with a string
I’m gonna catch that damn thing.
Better with a beat
Healthy with a hum

These are
Songs after surgery
Songs after surgery
Songs after surgery
Songs after surgery

There’s no power in a pill
Going downhill
You gotta sing
Songs after surgery
There’s no power in a pill.
What is that thrill of life?
Songs after surgery

There ain’t no power
There ain’t no power in a…
You gotta sing
Songs after surgery.

Songs after surgery
Yeah, you better sing
Songs after surgery

There is no power
There ain’t no power
You gotta sing
Songs after surgery
Track Name: Humanity/Machinery
You came into my life
to help make it easier.
You make things simple and nice;
you help connect me to the world.
You give me knowledge and answer
questions I may ask.
And then your helpfulness
is thrown into the past!

(Chorus)
You don’t know me!
You can’t help me!
You have imprisoned me.
You crack too easy!
Are you evil?
You are technology!
Now you must recharge.
Now you must restart.
Your humanity
has become machinery!

You begin again
just like you know me so well.
You’ve become accustomed to know
my habits and you can tell
everyone what I’m thinking and
exactly where I will go.
Then you assume too much
And your plan begins to show!

Chorus

Your humanity
has become machinery!

You are just a machine.
You are just a machine.
You are just a machine.
You are just a machine!

Chorus

Your humanity
has become machinery!
Your humanity
has become machinery!
Track Name: I'm Still Yours
Once, long ago
I wrote you a song
And now that we’re here
It’s been too long
I was wrong

(Chorus)
But my heart still skips for you
Even though I tell it not to
And as time runs its course
I’m still yours

But I see you in my dreams
As nights go by
I wake up to a ghost
But the sun still shines
And I’m fine

Chorus

Cause I meant
What I said to you
But couldn’t tell
If your words
Were true

I still sing your song
Once in awhile
I remember your touch
And it breaks my heart
But I smile
Cause I’ll see you again someday
In a whole different light
But until that day
I’ll keep singing
Through the night

Chorus
Track Name: Eclipse
Pick a song
and sing it loud.
Forget about your troubles
and push through the clouds
of yesterday,
they once were gray.
Take three steps forward
and two steps back.
It’s hard to see
the faults that you lack.
But you remain the same.
You push through your pain.

(Chorus)
And I’ll walk
through the night
Just to be
the first one
to see you in the light

Pick a pock of posies
and let it rain
Walk knee-high in the green grass
where we will lay.
Our boots will sink in the mud
like a bug, a bug in a rug.
Sing a song for no one,
cause no one’s to blame
Eclipse your eyes on me
and I’ll burst into flames
I’ll fly in the air
Ashes in your hair

Chorus

The amber sun sets
And the city lights up
I set off on foot
In search
For a touch
That once was yours

Chorus

Instrumental

Chorus
Track Name: Kitty Song
All I wanted was a bit of your time
A little petting and for you to be mine
Now you left me here alone
All I do is meow and moan
I want you to feed me
And I want you here with me
I just want you to be home
I want you for my own
I want you to hold me
‘Cause I’m your kitty

Oh darling, how I love our time
holding you, it’s time to unwind
with you purring in my arms
the world will do us no harm
But you know I have to go
So I can come back home
And feed you all the food
To get in cuddle mood
I don’t want to leave
But I need to succeed

(Chorus)
We both want the same thing
We both want the same thing
Why don’t you stay?
I wish I could, I wish I could
Why don’t you stay?
I wish I could, I wish I could
Why won’t you stay?
I wish I could, I wish I could

I want you to feed me
And I want you here with me
I just want you to be home
I want you for my own
I want you to hold me
‘Cause I’m your kitty

But you know I have to go
So I can come back home
And feed you all the food
To get in cuddle mood
I don’t want to leave
But I need to succeed

Chorus
