Track Name: Under You
As I stand here
On the land here
I am under
Under you
Under you
Under you

And all my interruptions
They are gone
They are gone
They are gone

And I know beneath the waves
And I’ve seen behind the scenes
Yes I know
I see the barcodes
But I can’t see what’s in your heart
What’s in your heart

Dig me down
Where the starfish lay
Upon the ocean’s ground
Even after the light from up above
Has faded away
Track Name: Flying So Low
Look around in the dark hallways
And I’m flying so low
I look around in the dark hallways
And I know
I’m flying so low
I’m flying so low
I’m flying so low

Follow the earth men
They try and get in my door
I can see their faces
Holler out
Their teeth show
But I know I can’t stop it
And it’s all up for grabs

I’m flying so low
I’m flying so low
I’m flying so low
I’m flying so low

The mountains rise and I fall
Into the ocean
The monsters know
That I don’t got my potion
I try to run but I know it’s almost time so
I fall and crumble
I don’t have no place to go
I’m flying so low
I just wanna come back now
I’m flying so low
Why don’t you let me come back now
I’m crying on the stage
Please don’t forget me
Track Name: Like A Box
Think not thoughts that get caught in a web
Yeah not lost like an albatross over the air
Don’t wait lie straight please wear it to death
Transport through a tube to a cube it’s a box

Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic
Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic

Don’t squint don’t frown don’t laugh don’t cry
Get hints from sound don’t ask me why
Say yes or no stop stop and don’t go
No please no thanks one level one rank
Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic
Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic
That is so realistic
That is so realistic

Let’s walk where to there’s nothing to do
Stand straight integrate don’t bend don’t break
In the sky in the May
Need a drone for your sake
No love no hate
One position won’t shake
All smooth and no rocks
That’s a that’s another box
All smooth no rocks
That’s a that’s another box

Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic
Like a box so clean that minimalistic
On a flat surface that is so realistic
Track Name: Lust
I am sitting here on this stoop
Talking right to you
Where that is
I am sitting here and have been since
Three eleven this morning
Yes I have
I had to make myself some tea
Cause I just could not sleep
Staring at the cat
You know my soul
Kitty kitty

Lust it got me again
Lust it got me again
No indeed
Yes it did
Those girls on those movie screens
I imagine how they laugh
Oh
Smiling at me
It’s written all over their faces
Trying to make me feel
Just like I was a disgrace

Oh lust why don’t you leave me alone
Why don’t you leave me alone
Leave me alone
Keep me awake at night
And don’t put me back to sleep
Make me feel like I’m alright
Make me feel like a creep

It’s been a long long while
It’s been a very long time
Oh
Ever since I was a kid
I could not keep my eyes away
From the pull
I told myself I was alright
I told myself I was normal inside
Yes I did

But everything outside of me would know that
I was screwed up and mixed up and confused
Oh
I begin to feel so violent
You’re looking real strong but silent
I felt just like a fool

Oh lust why don’t you leave me alone
Oh lust why don’t you leave me alone
Oh lust why don’t you leave me alone
Let me go to sleep
Oh lust why don’t you leave me alone
Let me go to sleep
Track Name: No Solution
I wanna say something nice
To you
I know I lost my wedding ring
Because a rock fell loose
Now I’ve lost track of everything
If I jump in the lake it won’t make it right
May a due to pay with all your fright
I hold you close in my mind
The way to your heart I’ll never find
Caught in this dream
We come alive
Never to find the real life
You can tell by my eyes
Caught between the truth and lies
Oh no solution
Oh execution
Oh no solution
Oh execution
Track Name: Stay.
Now you know that I love you
And I don’t want to let you down
You know I wanna hug you
And I don’t want to be too proud
You’re the one that I’m looking for
You’re the one that I need
You’re the one that I want baby
Oh you’re the one that I’m looking for
You’re the one that I’m looking for

So stay with me
I want you to stay
With me
Just stay
With me
Forever
And eternity
And eternity

I know you hurt
I know you cry
But I want you to know
That I do the same thing babe
Oh I do the same thing babe
I know you’re looking
I know you’re looking for something good
But so am I
So am I
So am I

Now just stay
Stay with me
Forever and eternity
I know it seems like
I know it seems like
Like we’re never gonna get by
But I know I know it can change
Someday

Track Name: Say The Words
Say the words I love you dear
Say the words I love you clear
Say the words so I can hear
I love you dear
In my ears

I need to know before the night gets cold
This afternoon I got my fortune told
I been awake alright and I can’t hold
This feeling here
You just don’t know
You think you’re strong
But I feel alright
Why don’t you let me come and spend the night
Oh please don’t run don’t you put up a fight
Let’s get out of sight
Baby I won’t bite

Say the words I love you dear
Say the words love you clear
Say the words so I can hear
I love you dear
In my ears

I been writing I know my p’s and q’s
Let me remove
Your hard-worn shoes
I promise you that I’ll be cool
I’ll be subdued
I know you want me to

Say the words I love you dear
Say the words love you clear
Say the words so I can hear
I love you dear
In my ears
In my ears
In my ears
In my ears
In my ears

I want you to say
I want you to say
Say I love you
Say I love you
I want you to say
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you dear
I love you dear
In my ears
Track Name: Love Is All around
Lost my mind over this one
Lost my mind over that one
I cried that was no fun
I cried that was no fun
Then I wandered in the day
That led to wandering in the night
I spent my time making phone calls
To girls so fine who didn’t want me at all

I had all that I needed in my soul
I had all that I needed don’t you know
Love is all around just open your eyes
Love is all around it don’t wear a disguise
It don’t wear a disguise
No no
It don’t wear a disguise

So when ordered to just close the door
I did go back for more to where I met her before
Like seeing the wall and crashing anyway
Those haunting words that she said go the fuck away
Go the fuck away
Go the fuck away

I had all that I needed in my soul
I had all that I needed don’t you know
Love is all around just open your eyes
Love is all around it don’t wear a disguise
It don’t wear a disguise
It don’t wear a disguise
Track Name: Able To Wait
Don’t need no self help guide
Just to keep me in line
Don’t need to rush the tide
Cause I’ll be just fine

The winds they softly blow
Upon my brow
And I don’t need to know
Any more than I do now
Cause I’m able to wait
Cause I’m able to wait

My aggravations from the gnat-like faces
With their scholars education
And their hands full of aces
They say you better move
Or you’re gonna miss your chance
It’s the last song of the party
So you had better dance

But I just stand to the side
My song already played
The melody still with me
So why should I be dismayed
Cause I’m able to wait
Cause I’m able to wait
Cause I’m able to wait
Cause I’m able to wait
Track Name: Survive
Principalities of man got you down in the mud
You’re a single grain of sand so you can’t stand out
Misery on every corner looking for handouts
You got peoples steady yelling you don’t know what about
Just turn your eyes to the sky and remove all doubt
If you wanna survive
If you wanna survive
Cause they’ll eat you alive
They’ll eat you alive
In your heart you feel you’re right but they tell you you’re wrong
The melody you orchestrate don’t go with the song
You’re only waiting in vain don’t make a difference how long
They tell you get off the stage but you can’t hear the call
So stop beating your chest and acting like King Kong
If you wanna survive
If you wanna survive
Cause they’ll eat you alive
Cause they’ll eat you alive

If you want to survive
You got to let it go
If you want to survive
You got to let it go
If you want to survive
Let it go
If you wanna survive
If you want to survive
Track Name: Start Over
I know we said it all
We said it all
Before
But I think I wanna start over
I think I wanna start over
I think I wanna start over
With you
Said I know what we’ve been through
But I think I wanna start over
I wanna start over with you baby
I’m still holding on
I’m still holding on
I’m still holding on
Holding on to you baby
Holding on to you baby
I’m still holding on
I think I wanna start over
Start over
Anew
Anew
Brand new
Brand new
With you
With you
Track Name: 12 Midnight
The banquets over the ball is done
The lights are dim we’re the only ones
The stairs flow down to the street from the hall
And now it’s time to let your image fall
And now it’s time to hear the wind’s faint call
And now it’s time to hear the wind’s faint call

It’s twelve at midnight
No carriage waiting down in front
It’s twelve at midnight
The night it beckons so let’s just run
Let’s just run
Let’s just run

The banquets over the ball is done
The lights are dim we’re the only ones
The stairs flow down to the street from the hall
And now it’s time to let your image fall
And now it’s time to hear the wind’s faint call
And now it’s time to hear the wind’s faint call

It’s twelve at midnight
No carriage waiting down in front
It’s twelve at midnight
The night it beckons so let’s just run
Let’s just run
Let’s just run
