Track Name: Stay In Bed
waste your time do your hair
put on a tie but don't let it go to your head
if its just the same to you I'd rather undo those buttons instead
wastin' precious time keep in mind
all those traditions are just in your head
change your ways intrude its rude to expect to see my face
in search of view, my ideals hold true
uncommon to sense these traditions are just in our heads
start the car go ahead
down the road pass the same people around every bend
monotonous rhythm pulsing to where we end
its enough to take my time week by week by 9 to 5 its just a put on
these values are just blind like a sponge they soak up time
from the creation in my head
Track Name: Gospel Tent
the answer is out there everywhere
reachin' for each every doubt
I didn't want to believe I just like to listen
i can feel the urges escape from each song
some of them leap right off the stage
glory the glory seems like lust and vice to me
hidden beneath the hymns that our grandparents taught us to sing
i pick my children up in my arms cant shield them from what i see
i just wanna feel good for the sake of feelin' good
why cant we all just feel good
a just sacrament in a state of innocence
like a gospel for the degenerates and the casualties
a screwed up culture burning with religion and tragedy
i'm not sayin' not to love your brother in peace and harmony
sing out cuz were just fools
fools that need your message
not believin' that its everlasting
no guilt no rescue lifted spirits guide us to carry on
just sing out
Track Name: All Allonely You
scratch your eyes, stretch your eye full
pinch your side, dumb defied
its only you who who who
all allonely you who who who
who decides that you get it
could beside anyone who's limit
charge falls short when takin what is given
its only you who who who
all allonely you who who who
that decides when you get it
change the world if you let it
mess it up and regret it
its only..all allonely you
take a hammer, grab a nail
teach the children to never fail it
building rockets, feeding fears
abuse your mouth, bruise my ears
instead of ruin it all down to the ground
you better run just get outta here
its only you who who who
all allonely you who who who
that decides when you get it
change the world if you let it
mess it up and regret it
its only..all alloney you
loose sight of any single instance
give aim to anyone whos listening
its only you who who who
all allonely you who who who
take a hand assume position
i promise you
if you stand up someone might listen
raise your hand up, grab attention
if there is something in this world
thats bringin you down
remember its the same old thing in every town
raise your hand up
just stand up
Track Name: About The Whether
about the whether
don't think anyone likes it or not its just undecided
inside that aching heart
tears that pound your pulse apart
whether or not they say things are looking up
safe to keep your eyes here on the ground
in and of your eyes in and of your heart
in and out your life things just fall apart
as soon as one thing stops another starts
bruising up your eyes breaking up your heart
choice can lead to ruin
can you stand what your doin'
hopeful thoughts pursuing
why should success pollute you
whether or not they say things are looking up
safe to keep your eyes here on the ground
in and of your eyes in and of your heart
in and out your life things just fall apart
as soon as one thing stops another starts
bruising up your eyes breaking up your heart
Track Name: Just Dance
i gotta move
shake whats mine
i ain't been causin' no trouble
outside of my mind
if you could see the scenes that i dream
they scare the hell outta me
if i could taste what you got so well kept
might make bad memories
trapped in these clothes
wont let me breathe
cant grow into the person id like to be
walk down the street just like everyone else
bored to the drone i repeat to myself
find a way out
of this messed up lie
Track Name: Three Words
Nature is disappearing
We chose these words because they have true meaning.
Because nature is disappearing.
The way we are representing.
We are going to use our hands.
Make three eagles and write the words on them.
Nature is disappearing.

The meaning we wish to convey
is that we want people to help nature comeback
This representation relates to our three words
because nature is disappearing and we need your help.

These images enhance our meaning
The most amazing wonderful parts of nature
These words mean so much to me
Different words on our different hands means We are working together
We are allowing our hands to work together
just work together
Track Name: Cowboys and Paper Aeroplanes
dance around my memory with a sweet kiss
pat on my back the love your touch brings
its all i need to ride with you in my day dreams
but il miss you when your gone
i look forward to you in my memory
to see your eyes, to feel your home
believing all you need to walk around on ills retreat
to miss us when your gone

even if i stand aside i catch the same tears
i loose the same mind
ride the open range tame the snake
drink your life this way
left your seed cant believe they breath
the same life in pain

i think of you grateful to be remembering
all the times that we have seen
bummin around to foolish for dreams
i already missed that the old times were gone
as we made our ways lost time for wandering
i wanna hope that you got all you could of ever wanted
cause its dreams like these that i dont want to believe
how il miss you while your gone
its to soon to miss old friends that have gone
even if i stand aside i catch the same tears
i loose the same mind
Track Name: Outrageous
these words test grounds for a passing and trade
relay escaped its at it again, again
addressed with fingers clinched in a tight fist
hard to reach out to a fist
how can you bargain when all you have is this

one side lose virtue honest and swift
relay escaped its at it again, again
act out aggression equals no sense no sense
my ears are drownin' in talk that's nonsense
outrage its just an outrage yeah
outraged its just outrageous

to fight fire with fire equals fire
waste plus waste equals waste just more
talk is bricks build up walls in front of open doors
hard to reach out with hands when all you give is fists
how can we bargain when all you have is this
all you have is this
outrage its just an outrage yeah
outraged its just outrageous

I read we gotta keep spending money
there's hardly enough to feed the mouths we got
I need a way to smile that's not pretend
its a relief that politicians fake it too
all I can see the camera reveals so much
that I believe i hear the truth in pictures
well I can see it all
I can see it all
i can see it all
its outrageous yeah
its outrageous yeah
its outrageous
Track Name: Dreamers
weed out each dreamer with desperate succession
twaddle expressed taste waste with each breath
carry out through disillusion
divert eye from death its persistence is trickery to your hearts misstep
common crowd transfixed on the edge of the court
stand the cheers at loves en-twist with lunacy
bends in the shape dirt minds diplomacy
take out the mess that blames the push for the shove
the same hand flips the bird to all extremity
point this finger down on society
point your finger don't point your finger at me
stench wrench history
stretched pulled beyond belief
wash those hands before you point that thing at me
often wondering why when where will some pick up the garbage
i'm so sick of this i'm so sick of it
trash your refuse refuse to reflect i'm so sick of it
those curves juiced obsessed
time takes no rest
waste the day away making love to me
reach out and grasp my sweating flesh
slip and slide in the way it was meant to be
name rhymes so truly
divert eye from death its presence is just trickery to your hearts misstep
common crowd transfixed on the edge of the court
stand the cheers at loves tryst with lunacy
bends in the shape dirt minds diplomacy
stretched pulled beyond belief
wash those hands before you point that thing at me
i'm so sick of this i'm so sick of it i'm so sick of this
trash your refuse refuse to reflect i'm so sick of it
Track Name: Lost In The Motion
lost in the night times of waste
cant you feel how the day pulls at you
find it hard hard to find
the pleasure of wanting to
daylight beats down beats down your fantasy
hope the hope is still in our eyes
ticking of a clock its like a motor that never fails
to ask what you want to do
just a second one more minute
theres always going too
count down how much longer
is it almost over i wonder
how much time now till we start again
waiting to go wanting to stay
i hope the hope is still in our eyes
in our hearts in our minds
its the only thing that stays
i hope it stays
i hope we stay lost in the motion
Track Name: Rhythm and Booze
if i could take the light it would illuminate my fears
lookin at me might make you ill
if i hide right out in the open
would you even count to ten
just so they could say you win
hold on tight im not jokin
grab on all right lets go then
hold on hold tight
grab on alright
if i cant get away from the crowds
long enough not to taste this gin
the crowds that drip the booze
soak my clothes drench my skin
drop of rhythm, drop of rhythm
beggin to be swallowed whole
bang my head in time, bang my head in time
to the droning hope
Track Name: Turning and Turning
sleep, go to sleep, time to sleep, just sleep
legs ache mind raked go to sleep
might like to run off if you want to
faster than a speeding train
just take off like a rocket
never to be seen again
decide to jump where you jump
and flip where you want to flip
then dangle at arms length
upside down around again
sleep, go to sleep, time to sleep, just sleep
legs ache mind raked go to sleep
dive to tumble leap through the air
fans left in awe cuz your wild
through your arms up above your head
cheers cried out are deafening
wanna make it through another day must sleep
eventually the crowd will fade away just sleep
twisting turning legs craze your mind awake
rumblin ignition that wants to burn out into space
sleep, go to sleep, time to sleep, just sleep
legs ache mind raked go to sleep
Track Name: Loose Weight
these things i carry with me
drag my ass deep into sleep
bothered oh! list of pieces
just not ready for assembly
not ready as ill ever be
all these things i carry with me
just loose weight
like a strangely hollowed recess
that long train that seemed endless
just taking on more cargo
deranged determination
keep pushin never unload
seems like ive been around
the world countless times before
i just cant count again
i cant keep track no longer
of this loose weight
tighten grip to hard to swallow
like a dream you cant remember
to much time to figure
as your stranded at the station
keep waiting for an "all aboard"
been down this road a thousand times before
i just cant keep on waiting
all the ways i see the truth yet so hard to touch
this loose weight
