Track Name: 1000 Trees
Wake up and see the sun,
its a once-a-day matinee.
Don't sleep, you'll miss the stars,
they've got so much so say.

Dig down to keep it up,
there's so much air to breathe.
One day you're gonna die,
and feed a thousand trees,
oh no.

You gotta stay strong,
you gotta move on,
before you're all gone.
Dropping secrets,
like the Fall,
don't drop your secrets
one and all.

Sometimes a better life
is gonna send you on your way.
Sometimes to be alone,
is all it takes to make you
stay in the grin
of the face that eats you
cuz' you never learned how to say
"I'll take a quiet life,
and endless string of drawn out days"

You gotta stay strong,
you gotta move on,
before you're all gone.
Dropping secrets,
big and small,
don't drop your secrets
one and all.
Track Name: White Coat
Hey Ho
Mr. Sunshine,
Barging in with all the worst lines,
when I lack the time to shut my eyes.
Dreams come in the day time,
no room left for them in line
to wait for you to forget them and sleep.

Soundly in the bed you left
when you arose from slumber.
Soundly in the bed you left
when you

Ghosts are the future's memories
bookended by eternity on both sides
seek and you'll find
crowbars wrenching endlessly at
closed lips,
nothing harms you,
wrapped up in your own two arms
you syncopate with love as my eyes strain, to

see you in the darkness
that dissects us in our slumber
wondering who is playing who the fool

bank on the broken gun to fire back at you
withdrawn and inhuman it takes a life to..
back beat, the day begun to ripen your disease,
look back but don't you run,
there's no one coming after you.

Hey ho
Mr. white coat,
confidently drowning hope
you focus instead on some ways to cope.
I can see that you're right,
time's a rusty nail in my side,
patiently, ill wait my turn to lie

sleepless in my head
a leaking ship without an anchor,
wandering on away from all I knew.

bank on the broken gun
to fire back at you
withdrawn and inhuman
it takes a life to..
Track Name: Day by Day
Meet peace on the road,
ask her where she goes,
offer her a ride,
never leave her side,
unless she tells you why

you're not feeling inside out.

Seek and you shall find,
your thoughts are in a bind,
a universe of friends,
a blanket that you mend
day by day.

are you feeling inside out?

The signal that you send:
awaken from your bed,
day by day.
Track Name: Clarion Call
I am tone deaf,
whether you say no or you say yes,
I hear the same thing.

You are one shade,
it takes a color wheel and three days
for anyone to pick you out.

What is my name?
I think it used to be the same
as someone you once met
outside a bar.

And now, I'm here,
but come tomorrow
I'll be neither here nor there and,
what will you do?

Today is good,
the grass is green,
and so is the bottle of Listerine.
Wash out your mouth,
pick up your stride,
I wish you would
unzip your wings and fly, high.

Why? Why?

You're not bothering me.
Track Name: The Path Unseen
I can not wait to be free,
I have not seen the sun in many years.
I have been waiting oh so long
that I can't stop thinking that its gone
while I've been lost in here.

With these two eyes I can see
that sometimes roads,
they tangle along the way.
Making their minds up on the fly,
they dance forgetting yesterday,
while they move on out there.

Now its time to build,
and not the time to break,
cuz' were all on our own,
oh well, what can you say.

Shaping your world around it:
a dream you had once back when you were young.
You have been waiting oh so long,
that you might start thinking that its wrong,
so you'll move on
somewhere else.

Again its time to build,
and maybe time to break
your back until you own
a future that you made.
Because no one's looking out,
and no one's chipping in,
I guess you should've known,
its time for you to take
the path unseen,

In a grey-scale world of golden dreams,
the place to be
is a Xerox'd box on a well paved street,
in a house so clean
with a yard so unnaturally green.

watch what you say,
you never know who is listening.
Track Name: A Change in Empathy
Heat, it rises,
cold, it sinks,
can you find order in this scheme?
Dust to dust,
were all the same,
there is no beauty in this scene.
Days erase the lack of patience,
I will whisper,
you will scream,
mind is tearing at the seams,
do you see numbers
when you're dreaming on your own?

You see paper,
you see ink,
can you make pieces form a whole
world enslaved by pretty cages
burn the flag,
but spare the pole.
Mindless we drink our wages,
fresh green fish in unseen bowls,
build your bridges beam by beam
if you see numbers when youre
dreaming on your own.

c'mon crack the code,
speak to me,
you're about to show
what it means to be,
c'mon crack the code,
speak to me.

Heat, it rises,
cold, it sinks,
can you find order in this scheme?
Dust to dust,
were all the same,
there is no beauty in this scene.
Days erase the lack of patience,
I will whisper,
you will scream,
mind is tearing at the seams,
do you see numbers
when you're..
Track Name: No Matter
How're you today?
You're lost, aren't you?
My hand drops a pin,
and you're gone,
its true,

No matter what you say.

the thing about today,
it was wrong,
its true,
just think about your friends,
where you belong,
its true

no matter what you say,
pack you up and send you on your way.

how are you today?
you're lost, aren't you?
just take the helping hand
that was offered to you.
Track Name: In Another Life
In another life we laid under the grape trees
in another life we sailed off through the sun
in another life our eyes held hands and they worked it out
in another life we spent our days as one

Yet another night we lay with our backs facing
Yet another day we got our errands done
On another night the words to say they came to me
In another life we spent our days as one

I'm a monster with a beguiling grin
I create and erase your black eyes
I'm the fear that lives within you
when you turn out the lights
and think that you might
give up your right
to begin
again

I want you to die a slow death
go to hell and don't you come back.
