Track Name: Past Baby, Future Corpse (What Am I Now?)
A past baby says to me: don't drag your feet, quit moping, go outside, stop blaming yourself
A future corpse is in remorse
He has nothing left to say, no words come forth from his brain or his mouth
He finds it hard to give life a new spark
He's feeling like a phantom with no place to call his own

Gotta find myself
What am I doing wrong?
How do I make things go just like before?
Gotta change my ways
Fore it's too late
When will things start to go just like before?
A dream long past
Never gonna last
Asleep in my bed so safe, just like before
So beautiful
A fading day
Living without a fight, just like before

Open my eyes
As I look up I notice the sun
Reach out, try to grab it, too far, I cannot snag it
There's something wrong with me
There's something wrong with this thing that you call love
I'm living a double life

Gotta find myself
What am I doing wrong?
How do I make things go just like before?
Gotta change my ways
Fore it's too late
When will things start to go just like before?
A dream long past
Never gonna last
Asleep in my bed so safe, just like before
So beautiful
A fading day
Living without a fight, just like before
Track Name: Homecoming King
Pretty little girl, show me your world
Everything you do, makes me want more of you

I meet you on the beach, to learn the things that you teach
How to control my mind, unlock the parts divine

I ask my heart questions everyday, there's sunshine on your face it's a beautiful day
And it don't matter if he had straight A's, cause grades don't count for shit if you're homecoming king
I've been taking time everyday, I petition my mind for the right words to say
Twenty-five and he hasn't been laid, how could this happen? He was homecoming king!

Everything he sees, dissolves to sugar free
Dancing in the street, candy cardboard queen

The day will come in time, that he unlocks his mind
Flowers immersed in rhyme, a garden in the sky

You know how to reach me
And it's so hard
To accept the things that you wanna do without me

I ask my heart questions everyday, there's sunshine on your face it's a beautiful day
And it don't matter if he had straight A's, cause grades don't count for shit if you're homecoming king
I've been taking time everyday, I petition my mind for the right words to say
Twenty-five and he hasn't been laid, how could this happen? He was homecoming king!
Track Name: Hold Me Close
Hold me close and never say goodbye
I need you now, need the sparkle in your eyes
You touch my heart, and read my very soul
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh our love won't get old

Take my hand and walk the streets with me
It's warm with you, no need to ever freeze
Surprise me with a dreamy timeless kiss
Memories that I can hold and reminisce

Cuz I love you--you're my shining star
I need you--you'll take me far
I want you to stay here with me
Sweet thing, you're all I want you're all I need

Romantic eyes no longer searching
The space inside has been filled
My only wish is to be with you baby
And hold you close!

Hold me close and never say goodbye
I need you now, need the sparkle in your eyes
You touch my heart, and read my very soul
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh our love won't get old

It won't get old!
Track Name: No More Sunday
I reckon my life doesn't matter much
I reckon my dreams will escape my clutch
Seventy years is much too long
For me to fear an ancient book of wrongs

The future keeps me awake at night
Year after year it's such a fright
Someday I will make things wrong
Even now it's been much too long
Track Name: Warm Eyes
Your eyes make me feel like I am drowning in light
They radiate warmth and good feelings

Your eyes give me hope, help me believe in new life
Love's the force that keeps us breathing

"What is that you express in your eyes? It seems to me more than all the print I have read in my life." -Walt Whitman

It's easy to be overwhelmed by all the love in the world
I'm thankful to share some of it with you
Overflowing cup, there's enough to spread all around
But most of it will find its way to you
Track Name: End With A Smile (feat. Ben Mabry)
I am excited
Enthralled
To find a morning where I walk out onto the split concrete
And learn to rejoice in quiet nothing
Trumpets of vices all leapt in my past birthdays
Now I live to love the transparent days
Seeing the future as what it really is
Just empty space

Smile
Track Name: Why Can't You Be Nice To My Baby?
Pretty eyes look up to greet you
A look of love
An open mouth speaks a language of its own
And it's okay

Why can't you be nice to my baby?
Track Name: Better Off In Disguise
Fear is like the ocean, is my thinking too precocious?
I can't be sure cuz I'm stuck in my mind
Dreaming of explosions then I wake up do devotions
Pray to nothing really, though surely I tried

Lacking invitations I'm alone with no emotions
I've learned to discard and set em aside
Leave them on the table let the demons suck the marrow
Nothing left but bones that have been sucked dry

You're better off in disguise!
No emotions found in the eyes!

Thinking of salvation, foremost goal of this good nation
It's hard to reach or even define
Patronize with flowers, shiny medals, toasty showers
Forget the thoughts that matter the most!

You're better off in disguise!
No emotions found in the eyes!
Track Name: Boys Don't Cry (The Cure)
I would say I'm sorry if I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time I've said too much, been too unkind

I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes

Cuz boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

I would break down at your feet, beg forgiveness, plead with you
But I know that it's too late, and there's nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it, cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it, hiding the tears in my eyes

Cuz boys don't cry
Boys don't cry
Track Name: The Road Is Life
Here we go again
It's time to go again
Here we go again
Start up your engines and go!

It's time go, I wanna feel it
I do feel!
Over the mountains again, I wanna feel things
I do feel!

Here we go again
It's time to go again
Here we go again
Rev up those engines and go go go!

It's time go, I wanna feel it
I do feel!
Drive through the valleys again, I wanna feel things
I feel you!
Track Name: Sunflower Girl
Sunflower girl
Lights up the world with her eyes
Sees beauty everywhere
Poems live inside of her mind

Perceives the Earth with love,
Grace and humility
Has dreams bigger than the moon
Inspired by the night and day

Sunflower girl
Lights up the world with her eyes
