01 – Canyon in C

This canyon around me; the cold walls of ice
Restricting my vision; restricting my sight
It leads down the path to nothing; no sweat
But I’ll climb up past these sides; there’s better things -yeah

Gripping the holds; gonna be a long climb up
Gonna make it to the top; I will not give up
Pulling up; fight the force dragging me down
I will not stay here; I will not be bound

The melting ice drips down in my eyes
The slippery surface built with lies
Maintain the grasp and start to ascend
Leave the safe path to reach the end

Out of the canyon; the space as big as
The endless ocean; the stars my soul will pass
Motion around here; the smooth and flowing mass
I stretch my arms out; to take this, take this

Begin to fade, begin to sway; begin to melt the disarray
Light the fuse to make it burn; explode it all they have not earned
Ride with me to take a chance; feel the rhythm, learn the dance
Missed the chance to heal and fly; I run and jump, I yell and…

The canyon falls in;  the walls hold no more
The ones that lived there; spread their wings and soar
Above the wreckage; I find the end is here
What I’ve reached for; I find it lying here

02 – On My Own

Everything you do
Comes from only you
Everything you say
Is going in one way
Whenever the cost is too high and you need to get by
There is no one to save you
No matter what you do
It always comes unglued

Save your silence
I’m already lost

Save your violence
I’m already gone

——————–
03 – Crisis

Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
Got your self in crisis

We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis
We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis

No way it could go down here
Couldn’t happen in a hundred years
Day goes by with nothing to fear
Your guard is down when it appears

It jumps off will you fight this
It jumps off will you fight this
It jumps off will you fight this
Got yourself in crisis

We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis
We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis

Can’t think can’t remember
Sweaty shaky hands
What to do where to go
You ain’t got no plan

We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis
We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis

It’s right in your face / gonna be like this
Can’t see nothing else  / gonna be like this
Try to make some space  / gonna be like this
It aint going to well / gonna be like this
Eyes on the threat / gonna be like this
Target acquired / gonna be like this
Let’s see where you at / gonna be like this
Shots fired / gonna be like this

We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis
We’ll find out what your price is
Got yourself in crisis

Can’t feel can’t hear
It’s fight or flight
You got it inside you
Time to make it right

Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
Tried to tell ya it’s gonna be like this
gonna be like this…

04 – Ticked

Save us
Be the hero
Save us
I believe in you

Take my hand and come with me
I’m not much but I believe
That heroes come from nothing
We’re all bathed in the light of a choice
Just take my hand and come with me
I’ll show you why I believe

Greatness is calling you

Save us
Be the hero
Save us
I believe in you

Steel thy hand and come with me
Steel thy heart if you believe
That heroes come from nothing
They’re bathed in light because they made a choice
So steel thy hand and come with me
And show me why you believe

——————–
05 – EMF

I’ve seen the hands move ’round this clock
I’ve seen the sky go light to dark
I will not settle ’til bones are brittle
I will not make the same mistakes
You will not stop this eager heart
I’m not made of steel, but I am real

My seven
I’m better
I’ve seen the change you made in me
My seven
So clever
I’ll be the man I’m made to be

I’ve seen the hands move ’round this clock
I’ve seen the sky go light to dark

My seven
I’m better
I’ve seen the change you made in me
My seven
So clever
I’ll be the man I’m made to be

Another 7 years
Another 700 miles
Another 1000 tears
Another 100,000 smiles

06 – Fish’s Home

Below the waves down in the sand
He finds a place that he can stand
Among the weeds between the reef
Tryna be safe from those with teeth

Inside he stays his hiding place
Aquatic fortress his carapace
The world swims past his comfort zone
Fish’s home fish’s home

The current ebbs the current flows
The tide gets high the tide has lows
The big ones swallow the small ones whole
He won’t let that be the way he goes

Inside he stays his hiding place
Aquatic fortress his carapace
The world swims past his comfort zone
Fish’s home fish’s home

He feels a rumble he feels a shift
The plates beneath open a rift
Quaking shakes his meager home
The walls come down now he’s exposed

Forward motion fuels his gills
He smells the blood from fresh kills
Rows of teeth enamel skin
He cuts the water on his dorsal fin

Outside he prowls the open space
The wide expanse his hunting straits
An entire ocean is his to roam
Fish’s home fish’s home

——————–
07 – Unspoken

Maybe we should talk
I’ve got the feeling we are failing
I’m not sure where we fell
Maybe I need to take some time alone
But I doubt it would save us

If I had one more chance
I swear I’d make it better

Unspoken damage
One chance to make it better
You’re the one, you’re the one
Will I hold you dearly?

I fear I’m always wrong
But I should let it go

If I had one more chance
I swear I’d make it better

Unspoken damage
One chance to make it better
You’re the one, you’re the one
Will I hold you dearly?

If I had one more chance
I swear I’d make it better

Unspoken damage
One chance to make it better
You’re the one, you’re the one
Will I hold you dearly?

Unspoken damage
One chance to make it better
You’re the one, you’re the one
Now I hold you dearly

——————–
08 – Song A

Sorry it’s over
I’m sorry to leave you all behind
Could it be out there?
Could it be all that I divine?

Sorry it’s over
I’m sorry I wasn’t strong enough
Will you be out there?
I will be waiting here for you…for you

Goodbye!

I’m sorry
I’ll wait for you…for you

09 – Through My Eyes

When I look to God
I stare into the sky
When heaven looks to earth
He sees through my eyes

Seasons come and go
Cycles rule our lives
All I’ve ever known
I’ve seen through my eyes

From now ’til the end
Time, they say, it flies
I see it but does He
When he looks through my eyes?

Countless loves and hates
Ideas fall and rise
Who am I but what
I see through my eyes?

Give Lavos a Chance

I know you worry that he has got me blindly following
I know you feel the rhythm of his energy flowing
Here take your pendant and draw the power of my awesome
Pet, pet, pet

Give Lavos a chance…

The old men scheme but just can’t break the beat of progress
The prophet found the fools who think that they can stop this
Here banish them before I have to cut off all their
Heads, heads, heads

Give Lavos a chance…

Crono…
Wake up Crono…

Wake up get up sleepy head
Wake up get up out of bed…

Everybody’s at the fair…
Nuuuuu…

I know you think the earthbound ones have worth or something
I know your brother says he feels the black wind howling
Here go to bed and just dream of the time of endless
Rest, rest, rest

Give Lavos a chance…

Fourty-Six & 2

Join in my child and listen
Digging through
My old numb shadow

My shadow
Shedding skin and
I’ve been picking
Scabs again.
I’m down
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.

I’ve been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could’ve been.
I’ve been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I’ve been hiding in

My shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow’s shedding skin
I’ve been picking
My scabs again.

I’ve been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could’ve been.
I’ve been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions.

I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I’ve endured within

My shadow
Change is coming.
Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I’ve been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through.

I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through.

See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

Just ahead of me.

God from the Machine

My vision is augmented y’all

Check your status again for the third time tonight
Your face lit up with the pale blue light
Hoping for connection or some validation
Got you tripping & hallucinating phantom vibrations

Eyes dried out but you continue to read
Can’t miss out cause you hunger the feed
The world keeps spinning behind the screen
Lie awake in bed as you serve the machine

Just let me in, come join your friends
I’ll follow your path as you carry me near and far
Just let me in, share without end
And smile for me as I tell you who you are

Keep up appearances, mask what you truly think
Them cookies keeping tabs as you click the link
The ones closest only see what you want them to see
But you trusting Zuck Brin and Bezos implicitly

The signal goes out and it’s passed around
You say you’re putting out knowledge as it’s going down
Stick it to them, ya heard fate favors the bold
They’re saying thanks for the data as the swallow it whole

Just let me in, come join your friends
I want it all, everything that can be known
Just let me in, share without end
Hold me up and you’ll never feel alone

Just let me in, come join your friends
We’re watching and we’ll try to understand
Just let me in, share without end
Accept your judgement from my invisible hand…

I never asked for this

To the Moon

I waddle alone here
My heart in the vault
You’ve left me wounded
But it’s my own fault

We were happy together
In the pond of life
We lived off bread crumbs
And we never knew strife

But when the fortunes started rolling in
You said Scrooge you’re not the duck you were
But I know I can get you back again

Let me quack for you
With my heart laid bare
We’re like two eggs in a nest
Such a lovely pair

And I will love you better
Than any swan or goose or loon
So come with me, I’ll take you to the moon

We both said some things we didn’t mean
What’s the use of keeping track
I’ll just let it go
Like water off my back

Let me quack for you
With my heart laid bare
We’re like two eggs in a nest
Such a lovely pair

And I will love you better
Than any swan or goose or loon
So come with me, I’ll take you to the moon

After all that we’ve been through
Never meant to be so cold
I just wanna see you smile
You can keep all of my gold
It means nothing anymore
All I need is you
So let’s fly to the moon
Fly to the moon…
I’ll take you higher…
