Track Name: Fallacy
Ship shape the trap is laid,
Underestimate the space between us.

All aboard your heart attacks,
Asymmetric rhythms beat a tattoo.

Deep down inside the Sound,
Over every mound and valley,
Each and every one of us can say:
We’ve been a fallacy haven’t we?

More and more the corpus speaks,
Birds can fly but not you or I can.

Anyway the past is past,
The future is a blasphemy I’m frightened.

Deep down inside the Sound,
Over every mound and valley,
Each and every one of us can say:
We’ve been a fallacy haven’t we?

We’ve been a fallacy haven’t we?
We’ve been a fallacy haven’t we?
Track Name: Bumps
Bumps gonna pick you up
Gonna keep you looking down upon the clouds
And not the other way around now

Bumps gonna spin you round
Balloons keep bouncing, bouncing on the breeze
Eventually they’ll smash into the ground

Bumps gonna lift you up
Gonna keep you looking down upon the clouds
And not the other way around now

Bumps gonna pick you up
Balloons keep bouncing, bouncing on the breeze
Eventually they’ll crash without a sound

Bumps gonna keep it clean
White light so blinding make you close your eyes
You’re up to high to recognize that

Bumps gonna tap you out
‘Cause when those bits and pieces come apart
You’re not the same as what you are right now

Bumps it’s a mighty ride
Gonna keep those knuckles white as sugar now
You’re in too deep to back it out cause

Bumps gonna tap you out
‘Cause when those bits and pieces come apart
You’re not the same as what you are right now

Bumps gonna lift you up
Gonna keep you looking down up in the clouds
And not the other way around now

Bumps gonna spin you round
Balloons keep bouncing bouncing on the breeze
Eventually they’ll crash into the ground
Track Name: Higher Than Sweet Heaven
Hey Ho so low don’t you wanna be
Higher than sweet heaven looking down on me
Show me the way cause I wanna be
Higher than sweet heaven come and look at me

Time erodes the shapes you know
The shades in light that come and go
If life’s a song than sing it long

Shine for me

Show me the way cause I wanna go
Home is the place where I can be alone
I might just skip out, slip out of this
Skin and go for a swim in your deepest blue

Floating in the tapestry
I miss the days, the lilac breeze
The friends and faces come and leave,
Close your eyes the light you see

As life begins, it never ends
Begin again, collect your friends
And soon the old is new again.
I’m so broken breaking all up these bottles I can’t take another

Time erodes the shapes you know
The shades in light that come and go
If life’s a song than sing it long

Shine for me

Hey Ho so low don’t you wanna be
Higher than sweet heaven looking down on me
Track Name: Back to the Rhythm
Got to get back to the rhythm
Got to untie all the ribbons
Got to shine light through your prism
Got to get back to the rhythm

Got to give back to the rhythm
Time to give back what you’re given
Got to give ‘em back while you’re living

It’s a alright day night
One time, one time supershow

Life is an ocean, we are the stars
Floating in motion, Venus and Mars
Measure the moments, all that we know
Minutes in motion, all right now

Time’s an LP with no ending
Notes in a bottle that you’re sending
Each and every groove keeps on blending

It’s a alright day night
One time, one time supershow

Got to get back to the rhythm

Got to get back to the rhythm
Got to give back what you’re given
Got to untie all the ribbons
Got to get back to the rhythm

One time supershow

Unwrap the clouds and hang them to dry
Swim in the sunrise, swim in the sky
All we can measure, all that we know
This is the moment, all right now

Got to get back to the rhythm
Got to untie all the ribbons
Got to shine light through your prism

It’s a alright day night
One time, one time supershow
Track Name: Opening Line
How’s this for an opening line:
I’m out of time and frankly so are all of us
The clowns and the emperors with treasure chests
Parading in their birthday suits

Tumbling from the peak from the top of the mountain
Just an avalanche of rolling dice
A lemming with a crown falling down
You wouldn’t think you’d do the same thing too

Curtains open wide open eyed
And signing up for over time
The sand in the glass
Rushes past and rises up above your Sunday shoes

How’s it get so late please state just for my records
How the time escapes from all of us
My stock rising higher
When my confidence was ebbing at an all-time low

Clouds wide and vast grinding past the axis of this world
It spins too fast for me
The trees filled with stars
While the apples float like leaves until they’re blown away

Thrown away like coins to the bottom of the wishing well
From clowns like I
But clowns have the luxury of laughing
While they’re falling from an empty sky
Track Name: Run and Hide Away
Sometimes I’m blown away by the slightest breeze I really mean it dig deep
Dig deep! That’s right and keep c’mon keep a cool head maybe
They say jump how high, how high are you jumping today
These days are Ok but I say just in case
Keep your head down making no waves

They say this jump is what, what you need is needs c’mon and feed your head well
I don’t believe what’s up their sleeve I believe it’s a lie
I’m talking slump I’m up I’m down and I’m upside down
I’m blown away by the slightest breeze
Pushed and squeezed and now

I’m pushed back into the corner
You leave me no choices

So I’m gonna run and hide away
Yes I’m gonna run and hide away
Now I’m gonna run and hide away
I’m gonna run

And so, I try and blow with the strongest breeze, I really mean to but then
I spin, I spend, I keep, I keep losing touch now maybe
They say don’t jump, my luck, how high am I jumping today
These days are OK but I say just in case
Keep your head down making no

Day break is all it takes, celebrate the day, c’mon and celebrate the day now
And how you do is you in a Petri dish now
I’m fully stuffed, I’m up the creek and I wash it down
I’m creeping up to the zero sum, stick my thumb and now I’m

I’m pushed back into the corner
You leave me no choices

So I’m gonna run and hide away
Yes I’m gonna run and hide away
Now I’m gonna run and hide away
I’m gonna run

I’m pushed back into the corner
You leave me no choices
I’m pushed back into the corner
You leave me no options

So I’m gonna run and hide away
Yes I’m gonna run and hide away
Track Name: Disco Donkey
Roll your eyes now
All things are not meant for everybody
Close your mind now
Knock, knock no one’s home forget about me

I feel the weight now
I can feel the world as it moves
I’ll drop this burden, disco donkey burden on you
These velvet shadows I could shine a light on you
Cause no one hides from light that shines so bright, so bright

I left this garden, memories of this garden in bloom
Look to the skies and butterflies inspire the view
Can’t you feel my sunshine, I could shine a light on you

Roll your eyes now
All things are not meant for everybody
Close your mind now
Knock, knock no one’s home forget about me

I feel the weight now
I can feel the world as it moves
I’ll drop this burden, disco donkey burden on you
These velvet shadows I could shine a light on you
Cause no one hides from light that shines so bright, so bright

I left this garden, memories of this garden in bloom
Look to the skies and butterflies inspire the view
Can’t you feel my sunshine, I could shine a light on you

Roll your eyes now
All things are not meant for everybody
Close your mind now
Knock, knock no one’s home forget about me

Now can’t you feel my sunshine
I could shine a light on you
Track Name: Head's a Window
My heads a window open wide step inside
I’ve been writing with a Lower case
The sole intention of a life left behind
When the syllables have fallen in place

My heads a window open wide
A rocket shot into the sky
The stars are singing lullabies but I’ll race the fireworks
Until one of us wins

What’d you think I’m pulling rabbits from a hat?
What I’m missing is a disappearing act

Your days are canvas, they’re a white empty spaced
Invitation for the brush to paint
So if instead you run and hide, paralyzed
Then donate them to the ones who will paint

A shoulder’s not a place to cry
A shoulder’s not a place to climb
A shoulder is an extra lane for stopping on the freeway
In an emergency

What’d you think I’m pulling rabbits from a hat?
What I’m missing is a disappearing act

My heart is foolish and it breaks all the time
Little pieces slipping through the cracks
There’s strength in numbers but I’m one, and I’m done
Steal the wick and all you’re left with is wax

What’d you think I’m pulling rabbits from a hat?
What I’m missing is a disappearing act
Track Name: People
People, born from the same
People, circumstances change
Circumstance change

Mother, shields from the pain
Father, carries the chain
Different but the same

What you dream
Is who you are
And what you’ll ever be

Steps you take
Is the change
That you’ll ever make

Take time,
Look up and around
It’s you, stand your own ground
Float into your mind

What you dream
Is who you are
And what you’ll ever be

Steps you take
Is the change
That you’ll ever make
