Track Name: Great Unknown
You are pulsing in my marrow
I’m electric with your youth
Plans always work in theory
Faith is not a form of proof
I’m as patient as a heron
Good things always come in time
If I wait through the wind and weather
Then the big fish will be mine

Sometimes when the water starts to rise
And all your plans are lost in the tide
Step Back
Soon you’ll realize

Chorus:
The world as we know it’s
Changing every moment
Time can’t be bought or sold
& Every single soul
Every creature every stone
Has a place in this Great Unknown

You’re as cozy as a campfire
You move through me like a sound
We’ll burn down to ash and ember
As though we never left the ground

Sometimes, when you open up your eyes
The first time’s always quite a surprise
Step back
Soon you’ll realize

Chorus:
Track Name: Reality
My mind is tired and reeling
I’m short on sleep
I’m lost in time and don’t know
What to believe
I stopped the rain from falling
I froze the sea
Are things the way I see them
Or am I asleep?

Chorus:
Well it feels like its real when I wake up
And it feels just as real as a dream
So I spin like a wheel in the mornings
Could this be my reality?

Two day delirium with
No end in sight
What’s real or reverie, well
I couldn’t decide
I changed a life by smiling?
And I lived for free
In my dreams I’m always flying
What could it mean?

Chorus:
But it feels like its real when I wake up
And it feels just as real as a dream
So I spin like a wheel in the mornings
Could this be my reality?
Could this be my reality?
Could this be my reality?
Well its real if you want it to be
Track Name: Bad Dream
Twist and I turn
Holding a wall
Its gonna fall
Building me up
Breaking me down
Down to the ground

Things, I’ve forgotten
Am I walking in my sleep
Seems that its nothing
Its nothing, but a bad dream

Bridges I’ve burned
Lessons I’ve learned
I’m out of words
Stress building up
I’m breaking down
Down to the ground

How many mornings
Can I watch the sky turn pinks
Seems that its nothing
Its nothing, but a bad dream

Things, I’ve forgotten
Am I walking in my sleep
Seems that its nothing
Its nothing, but a bad dream
Track Name: Soul Remains
Ancient Survivors, original sin
A constant reminder of where we began

Manipulative Madness
Has led us astray
Make believe and Magic
They may take what you make
But your soul remains?

Sit here in silence
Laugh in our beds
The storm grows around us
And clouds up our heads

Manipulative Madness
There’s more on the way
Make believe and Magic
They take what we make
& the soul remains

Lives have been sold off
For silicone schemes
Shackled and tide up
Slowly we bleed

Self propelling sadness
A moth to a flame
Make believe and Magic
They take what we make

Manipulative Madness
Has led us astray
Make believe and Magic
They take what we make
Track Name: Ebb & Flow
Ebb and Flow
Comes and it goes
Never know
Never there, but when it rains it pours

Chorus:
Well the world has a way
Of giving then taking away
It’s a game that we play
The rules are changing everyday
Well the world has a way
Of giving then taking away
It will all be okay
Sun or rain

High and low
Just go with flow
Hot or cold
Either way the choice is yours alone

Chorus:
Track Name: DNA
You’re a different breed
DNA like a missing link
You need some quick relief
I’m not your test tube baby

Read it A to Z
Disillusioned by reality
What will be will be
I’m not your test tube baby
I’m not your test tube baby

Change the codes and lock the door
Fight or flight you never know
Melted candles, make a wish
Your kiss is an apocalypse
Your kiss is an apocalypse

You could be a queen
DNA like a magazine
Bring it to the streets
I’m not your lab rat baby
I’m not your lab rat baby

I can feel the heat
Shiny new like you’ve never seen
Nothing comes for free
I’m not your test tube baby

Change the codes and lock the door
Fight or flight you never know
Melted candles make a wish
Your kiss is an apocalypse
Your kiss is an apocalypse
Track Name: Only the Lonely
The soil’s dry
Fire burns the smoke it hides the light
And burns my eyes
It’s made us blind
Can’t seem to see the light that hides behind
The other side

Oh, I can feel there’s something
Reaching for me
Only the lonely know how
Hard it can be

The crops have died
But a withered stock can still return to life
With some time
The jars are full
An easy spill so please don’t lose control
Of your soul

Oh heavy water won’t you
Wash over me
Only the lonely know how hard it can be

The spirits cry
But we can’t hear we’re too preoccupied
With our lives
The water flows
It’s not that bad if we all let it go
And share the load

Oh, I can feel there’s something
Reaching for me
Only the lonely know how
Hard it can be
Oh heavy water won’t you
Wash over me
Only the lonely know how hard it can be
Track Name: Johnny Appleseed
I used to live by the ocean
My bed was covered in sand
Now through some roundabout motion
I wound up back here again

I used to graze in the Rockies
Green rooms and golden lagoons
Now through centrifugal motion
I shall return there by June

Chorus:
We roll all over the country like Johnny Appleseed
Fresh out of money, but we got what we need
We roll all over the country like Johnny Appleseed
Always a runnin’ - We go with the breeze

I grew up deep in the canyon
These hills feel weathered and worn
But the hot chicken is fire
The rocks all roll like their stones

Let’s roll on back to the desert
And every place in between
Now hoey where should we go next,
New York or New Orleans?

Chorus:
Track Name: Strangest of Places
Passing through
Another strange adventure
Of broken hearts and brave mistakes

But when I’m with you
I forget the danger
In all the chances that we take

Too soon to know
But whenever we’re alone
It feels like home

Chorus:
Light as a feather
Windblown and weightless
You make it easy to fly
Life is a desert
Love’s an oasis
It can be found in the strangest of places

Déjà vu
Is this a dream (life) that I’m just remembering?
The way you move
Is living proof that your more than memory
You’re in everything

Chorus:

Too soon to know
But whenever we’re alone
It feels like home

Chorus:
