Track Name: Glow
I got lost in my shoebox dreams of the doo-wop scene
Grew up on 101.3
through all of this nonsense
Have people forgotten how to be brother brotha’ ?
And I know that it’s hard getting harder every day – you gotta trust one another
Cause our dreams won’t shine as high and bright as they use to they use to then

We’re caught in the light of a fading word – And just like a shooting star
Your light will guide them back to earth – you are, you are
A long way out from home
You’re breaking through the barriers you lead them on and on we sing this song
You Glow

I got caught in the jukebox
Stuck on the first song
It’s just the verse that’s in my head
Cause time won’t mend
These two ends
Are only for the fray, for the fray
And their convoluted meanings
Their words
Are so deceiving
Like books on how to breathe while we’re lying on the ceiling
At the bottom of the oceans in outer space
I’ll be looking for a face just to guide me, just to guide me home
Track Name: Bones
I’ve been picking up my feet
Tryin’ to make my mark on this path way
But something’s always putting me in last place
Maybe that’s just me and I don’t know
Used up all these drugs they got me sinking so far south and out
No one has to wonder why
No one has to wonder why
We ended like this

HAY YO where’ve I gone tell me where’m I going and how to get back to
The place that I Belong – feel skin on my skin, sun on my bones, cause I’ve been walking lonely Home


Some things I thought would never change
Like bad habits I’ve had since the very first time I
Filled up the page, taught my band to play,
won the hearts of the non believers
It’s not enough to say what I have to,
Inflate the imagination of what could capture you
I dream in colors that fill the darkest parts of your soul right down to your bones

where’ve I gone tell me where’m I going and how to get back to
The place that I Belong – feel skin on my skin, sun on my bones, cause I’ve been walking lonely Home

And I’ve been walking now
Took my vices and I threw them out
I’m taking my bottles back to the party store
Emptied out the liquor I kept in the bottom drawer
That’s not me
As for now taking back everything
Track Name: Faith
Somewhat of an activist
Never knew what side was which
I’ve been throwing punches at the head of a high school dream where we all got lost in the end
Lost in the cause lost in the truth uncovered who we are
I Never tied my rope to foreign land cause faith I didn’t have
I’ve been weakened
And I’ve been loosing all my self-control

I call that living in the moment
Livin’ in the front seat
Living in the street, I’m old enough to find out
That what you have inside they cannot take
It’s good enough for
It’s good enough for me
Cuz that’s all that matters
We’re getting to the
Heart of the matter,
Faith

Would you play if pain was not an object
No more process it’s all made up anyway
Fear is just a state of mind, while danger is a way to rise
If you could stop from falling would you do that? would you do that?
Or would you give up breathing would you give up on the oxygen?


She said as soon as you make peace with the facts of the world
Let them consume you whole
That mask you’re wearing is better left where it was found
and where it was found is in the groundings of all we’ll know
Thoughts you have like counting backwards, wording never spoke
then it just slips away, it just slips away
Like a spark caught by the darkness
she’s calling my name in taking my place in a lottery of men
It’s all in my head my thoughts are rotten
come up the stairs to fill my heart in again
here’s a drawer full of markers and pens
Which colors do you think I look prettiest in, look prettiest in ?
Track Name: Time of War
She was born in the hills with the stars in her eyes
She dove from the cliff believing she could fly
so won’t you pick me up to stand where you are
Wont you pull me up to see the stars like Anna does
Like Anna does

Tell me where have you gone since 1962
And how’d you get so far along when all we know is

A time of war, time of peace
Time of love, maybe we found what we need in trust
Maybe time apart wasn’t good enough, wasn’t good enough?
A Time of love, time of peace, time has come, leading our footsteps to the door
opened our hearts for wanting more, for wanting more

This time the snow it came
Against the will of prevailing rains
And it falls a little stronger hits a little closer to my veins
Looking at you now so happy so young so beautiful
It’s a trick to getting older, truth of getting over on and out, on and out

A time of war, time of peace
Time of love, maybe we found what we need in trust
Maybe time apart wasn’t good enough, wasn’t good enough?
A Time of war, time of peace, time has come, leading our footsteps on and on
opened our hearts to wanting more, to wanting more
Track Name: The Animal
When she wakes
It’s all that she has here to take
Dissolving her pain till tomorrow, feeling so hollow
And she stays in the hospital bed
Where they wait
Twenty-eight days till tomorrow, where is tomorrow?
A part of losing yourself is gaining it all
and a part of rising above is taking the fall

How will we live? How will we fight?
When we’re chasing the animal
And how will we learn? Learn to survive
When we’re chasing the animal.

What will we do when we’re gone from this life?
cast out and ruined, lost and cut short of our time
what a shame, to keep living
Watching the others going by - with tears in her eyes
Close the door on this relationship don’t mean shit unless you want it
all i’ve ever wanted was you - my heart is black and blue

A part of losing yourself is gaining it all
And a part of rising above is taking the fall

How will we live? how will we fight?
when we’re chasing the animal
And how will we learn, learn to survive
When we’re chasing the animal

We ride! we ride !
We ride!
And how will we learn, learn to survive
When we’re chasing the animal

We ride! we ride !
We ride!
We ride! we ride !
We ride!
