Track Name: Island Tilapia
Come with me / final destiny / Where the sky and horizon meet / We'll go / An island there / A people without care / You’ll find ambitions shared / We'll go / I hope you know we want you here / A group of citizens who take good care / of the lonesome strugglers we always seem to be / We find ourselves in the great outdoors / with detox rooms and organic stores / And all the luxury could only dream / The ads just seem to get it right / with perfect graphics and text aligned / An inviting smile to always let you in / We always felt misunderstood / but the island does the best it could / And if I'm worse for wear / the tilapia was good
Track Name: #7
We found you / lying on the dark pavement / Counting clouds, I sighed / I grasped your hand and then you flew away / Morning greets / Sunlit streets they always find the time / I never would think a donut would taste so good / Sometimes I don't sleep until about 3:30 / I go to wash windows but they just get dirty / And riding in the rain just gets me muddy / But one thing I know #7's still running / If they knew / The hodge-podge schemes / The monster kept alive / They'd watch in horror as we climbed in that van
Track Name: A Bright Light and a Bizarre Dream
I had a dream that we were in a boat / and I just kept on falling out / The boat kept on as held the waves just tossed me out / This fall was so right / this light was so bright tonight / With my eyes held wide / the space was filled white tonight / I dig myself in a hole to get comfortable / This fall was so right / this light was so bright tonight / This fall was so right / this light was so bright and / I wind up in a room with faces I once knew / and saw that it was my old house / I try to clean the mess but then I see / that I can't figure it out / This fall was so right / this light was bright tonight / With my eyes held wide / this space was filled white tonight / This fall was so right / This light was so bright tonight / I try to clean the mess but then I see / I'm a person I never was / Must've been the water or wine but I don’t know / I guess I'll figure it out / This fall was so right / this light was so bright tonight / This fall was so right / this light was so bright tonight / With my eyes held wide / the space was filled white tonight
Track Name: [tangerine]
Who would want to leave?
Track Name: Let's Go Somewhere
Here I've got my cigarettes / Find the place and I'll find the time / Look at trees like giant hands / Snatching up young lovers as they drive / We are two souls that don't make sense / Use the trees as our cover / and hope for the best / Grab my hand so tight as the old trees blur / Ask the woods for an answer / let my heart speak first / Open road your hand on mine / Cast a smile as the earthen farms fly by / Is this protocol or just mindless fun? / To just drive in circles all night long? / We are two souls that don't make sense / Use the trees as our cover and hope for the best / Grab my hand so tight as the old trees blur / Ask the woods for an answer / let my heart speak first / Let's go / Let's go somewhere
Track Name: Run, Escape
I lived a life that of a friar / and it brought me no delight / So I made friends with all my ghosts / And I escaped into the night / I lived to my own minds desire / And it brought me no content / We spent the seasons asking "why?" / Returning to those ghosts I went. / Run / Escape / Far from your home
Track Name: Places
We drive through alleys in the humid air / We hide ourselves with our masks on / You're in your black dress flowing down / With their eyes on you and the flashbulbs / You make your way downstairs / Parting crowds in the underworld of disco / The king and queen have arrived / And parked themselves in the system / We fight for life in the city lights / We fight for hope in the city lights / We fight for love in the city lights / We fight for love in the city lights / We make it clear we're in control / You smile at me and the trance starts / We walk through halls just our footsteps hears / In the walls of steel and beating hearts / I gaze as you walk upstairs / your flowing gown calls me and I follow / You say "let's leave" I say "alright" / Drop our masks and climb in the black hole.
Track Name: Illinois
I know your friends want to see me / But I gotta go for a while / I ask that you please forgive me / A last chance to say goodbye / I'm off on my way to Illinois now / Some photos on a TV screen / C'mon pack your things and join me / What else will we do if we stay? / In a row of similar buildings / I make myself entertained / I don't see anything familiar / What is this cityscape? / I want to fly away and disappear now / Everyone wishes they could / But I know that if I go up there / It won't do me any good / And I know the past wants to see me / Just another time bomb ticking in my head / We were the wolves in a festival of sheep / As the music starts bumpin' we start to move our feet / And as we all smile we start to join hands / Just happy little creatures dancing in the sand / And everyone asked to be understood / But with the music so loud we did what we could / And now the party rages on / And now I have to leave / Just another party animal kicked into the street / And as we all drive full steam ahead / We all shout to the past / “I'll be back before I'm dead” / What in the world am I doing here? / But I say it's alright / There's a reason for birds / A reason for bees / A reason for land / A reason for sea / A reason for day / A reason for night / A reason for peace / A reason for a fight / A reason for dogs / A reason for cats / A reason for a piercing / A reason for the tats / A reason for love / A reason for grief / A reason for laws / A reason for a thief / A reason for mom / A reason for dad / A reason for this / A reason for that / A reason for chains / A reason to be free / A reason for you / And a reason for me.
Track Name: Daydream
We sit and watch the clock / As the minutes pass / Just the hum and the whirs / Of each circumstance / Watch the grain slip away / through the tiled skies / We call each others names / A mental exercise / As the minds connect / Drone of voice is gone / We've found the architect / And we've fallen numb / Birds in a daydream / A cautious careful curl / Swallows in the trees / As the dream unfurls / And as they try / We fly away / We found the sky / And they're afraid / Losing what you've got / A faithful metaphor / Go to school again / To dream some more / Grab my hand please / Our hearts skip a beat / All works must cease / As two lovers dream / Followed through the halls / Elements of sound / Through the porcelain jaws / I guess I've found you
Track Name: Repeat, Repeat
Hello my son what’d you do today? / The life lessons to promote better ways / Just sit at our desks and told to smile / The megaphone mouths just bark awhile / An LCD screen of better things / A motor belt rolls and another bell sings / Repeat / Repeat / The smiles shy as he hums a tune / Another new year another new moon / The circuit boards hum they'll make sense of it soon / A printer spits it out in the afternoon / All they read are gentle lies / His psychology on why cries / Repeat / Repeat / The sun glares down on a synthetic sea / High on crystal methamphetamine / The swine of men turn and cheer / The profits are up / They've made it this year / A man colored grey / Tries to make sense / Of why his dream's on the electric fence / Repeat / Repeat / A man grins light as he raises the bar / We pack our minds into mason jars / And hide them in corners of the house / Next to hope and love without a sound / All we receive are trinkets of gold / And just smile here and do what we're told / Repeat / Repeat.
Track Name: New Jam, Old Toast
To be man we're told of what we're doing wrong / But words won't work just a night with three friends strong / To be a man we are told on how things should end / But now I'm drunk and we'll talk til 3am / We'll quit our jobs / Leave this town / Live off rice if we have to / We'll find our thoughts / Live our dreams / Make sense of what we truly feel / Now it's 4 / But it's midnight in my head / I'll try to make barely most of it / When I wake at 2pm
