Track Name: 67,000mph (Going Nowhere, Fast)
I can't see the future,
But I know where I've been.
The path that I am going can't be too far off from then.
No, I'm going nowhere, and nowhere fast.
Elastic, bouncing back, with no reaction from you.
You're the sun and I revolve around you.
And I would die if you happened to move.
Like a parasite who only thrives with you.
Like I would die, yeah I would die.
Oh, you can assume I'm going nowhere fast at

67,000mph, 'til i can't stand.
(Don't float away, don't float away)
Careening through the universe like the lost,
Spaceman I am.
Im going nowhere, fast.

When the darkness closes in,
You'll be there.
And when the dark thoughts start to brim,
You'll be there.

You're my satellite, you guide me through the night,
I guess I could call you my telescope.
(My telescope, my telescope)
You have helped me see that, nothing's as it seems,
I need a wider view i suppose.
(Oh i suppose, oh i suppose)
You have sent me signals, everything will be alright,
Despite where we're thrown.
(Despite where we're thrown)
With you it's more like living, than spinning to oblivion,
You're aura is so beautiful.
(So beautiful, so beautiful)
You have grounded me,
In spaces left between

67,000mph
Going nowhere fast at,
67,000mph.
Track Name: Bar Lights
Got up this morning somewhat blinded,
Must've woke the sun again.
I tell myself I'm getting older,
But these nights keep happening.
Talkin' in my sleep like i am always over-thinking,
Now you're gone, now you're gone,
I tell myself this fear is visceral.
I tell myself this fear is visceral.

Yeah, times are changing.
I feel left behind sometimes.
For now i don't need a reason,
I'm living life, i'm living loud.

So, maybe I fucked it up back then,
I got stuck in the way-back-when,
All i ever really wanted was to be them-
This fear is visceral.
I took my time trying to find myself,
Out-run my former-self and my surroundings.
Well if it's true that time will always tell,
Then why the hell hasn't it answered?

Yeah, times are changing.
I feel left behind sometimes.
For now i don't need a reason,
I'm living life, i'm living loud.

Oh no, Oh no, we are,
Growing so old, I am,
Tired of days flying by like bar lights.
Oh no, Oh no, we are,
Growing so old, I am,
Tired of days flying by like bar lights.
I've been losing my mind,
Out of sight, Out of time.
Singin' "these days are flying by,
like bar lights, there bar lights,
Bar lights"

Yeah, times are changing.
I feel left behind sometimes.
For now i don't need a reason,
I'm living life, i'm living loud.
Track Name: Ghost
There's a part of me that believes,
We are both orbiting until we finally meet,
Or collide, in time, the gravity of fate will force our souls to intertwine,
And the stars will all align.

There's something out there,
Perfect disaster,
Giving rise to another life.
I'd carry the world on my shoulders,
Just to have you by my side.

But i'm a ghost,
And i need you to believe in me.
Invisible, I need you to see,
What i see.

I get lost in today,
Forget about yesterday and where i want to be.
Then the ring of your voice pulls me in,
Like chimes in the wind my direction is changing.
Yeah, there's a part of me that deceives,
And there's a part of me that believes.
There's a part of me that believes...

There's something out there,
Perfect disaster,
Giving rise to another life.
I'd carry the world on my shoulders,
Just to have you by my side.

But i'm a ghost,
And i need you to believe in me.
Invisible, I need you to see,
What i see.
Yeah, I'm a ghost,
And i need you to believe in me,
Invisible, I need you to see,
What I see.

I wanna know how you feel.
I would die to meet you in another life.
I wanna know how you feel.
I would die just to meet you in another life.
I would die to meet you in another life.
(I wanna know, I wanna know)
I would die, to meet you in another life.

There's a part of me that believes,
There's a part of me that believes in you and me.
Track Name: Old Friends
My fingers trace the walls,
I try to find the cracks between everything that went wrong.
Step by step i walk,
While you take the path through my wake, hoping that I fall.
Well, when i hit the ground, oh,
You'll hear the sound of Bridges burning down.
You're both Ashes to me now,
You're both Ashes to me now.

I've been,
Staring at pictures of old friends,
Hoping to overexpose them,
In the wake of yesterday.
Looking,
Through the eyes of a new lens,
Your faces look so distant.
In this new light,
I've finally found my stride.

The moment I feel lost,
You send me in a direction I have never gone.
It's like i'm drunk for the first time,
And I can't walk a straight line.
Well, when i hit the ground,
I hope you hear the sound,
Of Bridges burning down.
You're both Ashes to me now,
You're both Ashes to me.

I've been,
Staring at pictures of old friends,
Hoping to overexpose them,
In the wake of yesterday.
Looking,
Through the eyes of a new lens,
Your faces look so distant.
In this new light,
I've finally found my stride.

Light me up just to,
Snuff my spirit out.
Let me burn just to,
Cash my spirit out.
Light me up just to,
Snuff my spirit out,
Try, I won't let you,
Cash my spirit out.

I've been,
Staring at pictures of old friends,
Hoping to overexpose them,
In the wake of yesterday.
Looking,
Through the eyes of a new lens,
Your faces look so distant.
In this new light, I,
I've been,
Staring at pictures of old friends,
Hoping to overexpose them,
In the wake of yesterday.

Whoa, I've been,
Staring at pictures of old friends,
Hoping to overexpose them,
In this new light,
I think i finally found my stride,
I think I've finally found my stride,
I think i've finally found my stride,
I think i'm finally found, I've finally found,
I've finally found my stride.
Track Name: Ships
Another Summer goes Falling into Spring,
A new year appears in a lightening flash,
Don't look back.
Piece by piece and line by line,
I try to hold it together for at least one more night.
I tell myself that we'll be fine tomorrow,
But you,

Break me down just to build me up again.
Another project for your long weekend, and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til i try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.

The greens and the blues that remind me of you,
Are blurred like the lines between cartoons and news,
In the paper you read, on your T.V. screen,
Am i, just helping you get by?

Break me down just to build me up again.
Another project for your long weekend, and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til i try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.

From the outside, looking in,
There's a storm still brewing.
I guess these Summer squalls come natural to me.
From the outside, looking in,
There's a storm still brewing.
I guess these Summer squalls come natural to me.

So naturally,
I draw the blinds and light one up just to put me to sleep.
It's days like these,
I want no memory of where we went wrong,
And I, just wanna float on.
Just wanna float on...

So why don't you,
Break me down just to build me up again.
Another project for your long weekend, and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til i try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.
Track Name: Hide
Why can't you stay in just one shape?
I feel like I don't know you...
You're all the same, you're all the same,
You carefully dress the truth.
You camouflage.

Why can't you take,
A piece of me with you?
You always fade,
In the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay,
We could forgive you.
But you disintegrate,
Into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past.

I never knew, never knew, never knew you.
Is this permanent, is this the new you?
I try to hold you up, but you fall through.
Oh, you do.
Somethings going on.
It's time you've shown your true face.
You're so chameleon,
Some things you just can't fake.

Why can't you take,
A piece of me with you?
You always fade,
In the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay,
We could forgive you.
But you disintegrate,
Into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past.

Between the words you weave,
What am i to believe?
Every time we need you fade into the scenery,
And we're finally calling your bluff. (OH!)
You're cover's blown, you can't escape,
We've handled far more than we thought that we could ever take,
And we've finally had enough.
Something's going on.
Some things you just can't fake,
You're so chameleon.
You're transparency holds no weight.

Why can't you take,
A piece of me with you?
You always fade,
In the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay,
We could forgive you.
But you disintegrate,
Into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past,
Yeah you're so, so,
Chameleon.
You're so chameleon.
Track Name: Waves
I was born, I was born, I was born to make waves,
I was born, I was born to make waves.

Broke down, beach town,
Same place with the same old crowd.
Can't find a way, a way out.
Somewhere, in the distance,
Mystery slowly glistens.
It shines through all the rooftop-buzz.
You were moved, but i never was and,

I,
Will never let them pull me in I think I'd rather,
Dive,
Sink or swim against the current,
Let me get this right...

I was born, I was born, I was born to make waves,
I was born, I was born to make waves.
I was born, I was born, I was born to make waves,
I was born, I was born to make waves.

Unsure of a cure,
And burnt out on how we were.
I try to find a way, a way out.
Send me, into motion,
Riding a new high, coasting.
A landslide is all i need to come down.
Break apart the static with new ground.

I,
Will never let them pull me in I think I'd rather,
Dive,
Sink or swim against the current,
Let me get this right...

I was born, I was born, I was born to make waves,
I was born, I was born to make waves.
I was born, I was born, I was born to make waves,
I was born, I was born to make waves.
Track Name: Money Tree
I'd like to think that there is something left,
For us to give that hasn't been received well yet.
I hope that this is making sense...
Cause I know, i know you've got your reasons,
But the money tree comes and goes.
I hope, I hope you'll hear my voice after it's fallen,
And you have decomposed.
And you have decomposed...

And I hope that this is more than a start,
And everything in the airwaves gets lost in the dark,
We all fall, we all fall in, in.
And i know, know, know, you'll realize in the rhyme,
That everything that you wanted was here the whole time.
We all fall, We all fall in.
In.

I'll admit that it's the perfect place to hide,
Hidden in plain view, tangled in the vines.
Underneath is where it began,
Just as real, though you rarely see them.
I know, know, know you've got your reasons for why you climb,
This tree all the time,
Just to fall.

And I hope that this is more than a start,
And everything in the airwaves gets lost in the dark,
We all fall, we all fall in, in.
And i know, know, know, you'll realize in the rhyme,
That everything that you wanted was here the whole time.
We all fall, We all fall in.
In.

So where do we go?
Where do we go?
So where do we go?
Where do we go?
(We all fall in)
So where do we go?
(We all fall in)

I'd like to think that there is something left...

And I hope that this is more than a start,
And everything in the airwaves gets lost in the dark,
We all fall, we all fall in, in.
And i know, know, know, you'll realize in the rhyme,
That everything that you wanted was here the whole time.
We all fall, We all fall in.
Into line.
Track Name: Hummingbird
It isn't easy holding a semblance,
Of peace when there's war raging inside of your head.
You stood strong, embracing the fight,
Painting the darkness with rays of light.

Now that you're gone,
I see the blues and greens,
As a sign,
You're still hovering.
We'll carry on,
Like a hummingbird,
And cut through the darkness for all that it's worth.

Head for the hills,
Don't let them see the face of disbelievers,
I am cut to the bone,
As i move on from the fallen alone.
Well outside your window, the wind still blows your name,
Flowing through me like Novocain.

Now that you're gone,
I see the blues and greens,
As a sign,
You're still hovering.
We'll carry on,
Like a hummingbird,
And cut through the darkness for all that it's worth

Don't you fear, what you don't know.
Don't you fear what you don't know?
Don't you fear, what you don't know.
Don't you fear what you don't know?

Five years passed, but the scars remain,
A constant reminder of my current state.
All i know, is i miss you and your ways,
And me missing you is the only thing that won't change.

Now that you're gone,
I see the blues and greens,
As a sign,
You're still hovering.
We'll carry on,
Like a hummingbird,
And cut through the darkness for all that it's worth.

Don't you fear what you don't know!
Don't you fear what you don't know!
You don't, you don't , you don't know.
Track Name: Solstice
You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?

Compromise and ozone mix,
In a beach town where my friends sit.
The liquor flows as skin begins to burn,
It burns and,
The sun beats down on your face,
I can't seem to trace the rays,
The spaces, the spaces speak to me.
Then i see you, like a wave on the horizon.
More clearly than i've ever seen.
And i know, the thoughts crossed your mind before,
On the cold nights, when you can't fall asleep.

You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?

When i see you,
Everything starts to bloom.
When i see you,
I see shades of gold and feel blues.
I wanna breathe you in like i may never,
Breathe again, the air tastes better,
When you're around.
When you're around,
It feels like summer and smells like rain,
Time freezes us in picture-frame,
When you're around,
When you're around...

You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?
Oh, You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?

(Nah nah nah nah nah nah,
Nah nah nah nah nah nah,
Nah nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah)
