Track Name: Where Are You Now?
Who were you then?
my dear
where are you now?
why do I feel like I miss you
when we haven't met?
when will I have a chance to glance
at you again?
your mystery makes me question
where are you now?
your mystery makes me wonder
if I'm dreaming now...

Where are you now? now?
Searching for the lost and found...
Track Name: The Man With The Sign
I see the man with the sign saying: stop!
lyric system blank pages sent from the source.

confusion
ripped from my hands
and it's plain to see
I don't need a license to breathe
it's crystal clear
from where we stand
people just need a helping hand
a helping hand

collusion
money disappears without a trace
read between the lines
because the system won't say
who's running the game
what are the rules
can anyone explain?
what are the rules yeah

I see the man with the sign says
lyric system blank pages sent from the source.
Track Name: Temper Temper
Like a movie scene
reality takes the role
rewind I'll play it back,
smash comes first
open your eyes action
it's a scream so please be cool
underneath the blue sky

temper temper slow is down
relax this picture before something happens

there is tension waiting to be fed
self-control better come in
and save the day
creeping in a emergent
silent screams of headaches
about to be tested
keep finding self control

temper temper slow is down
relax this picture before something happens

Remember keep your cool
when people don't understand.
Track Name: Travelling
Night had fallen and the clouds were low
no stars were visible,
the darkness would have been absolute
a flash of lightning to the north,
forgotten a thousand dreams
in the years that passed
we live in strange times,
I'm travelling

We should climb the golden city
you can sing from the top,
there'll be people there to greet us
make sure your heart don't stop,
if you turn your head to see me
to see if I'm still there
blink and i'm gone,
Travelling

Moving through the yellow to the blue
a flame briefly filled the window
I'm travelling

mountain skies through the bus window
smoke two inches from the floor
never seen the sight of eye-level pictures
on the wall,
thought I'd found myself on Bardo ave yeah
but it was just my reaction to the solar eclipse
just me being blinded by the truth
I wish I didn't have to admit it,
held down my tears
then one day
I cried so many tears,
travelling
I'll go back there if I want to one day
Travelling.
Track Name: Somebody
Somebody pushed me down
somebody picked me up!
somebody helped me out
when I was down on my luck,
people every where
you know what to do
lift your spirits up
and tell the person next to you:
"I'm Somebody"

Stand tall in your own shoes
you can answer it all
silence, keep safe
your world will never fall
because you're somebody!

Been so much to stress about
and I don't know what's going on
and I can't identify
simple right from wrong
when I'm scratching in the earth
trying to keep my future bright
I won't forget that
I'm am somebody...
Track Name: Bypass Memory
Bypass memory
switch to solo,
took a sip of red wine
half an hour ago,
switched back out to see
drifted on a no-no
it gets better, better

so we're no chasing
chasing another view
there's a bright light
a light that I cannot explain
time is lost
and reality slips away
time is lost
and reality slips away

Bypass memory
switch to solo
my friend puffed on magic
half an hour ago
swiftness of air
watch the undertow
it gets better, better

so we're no chasing
chasing another view
there's a bright light
a light that I cannot explain
time is lost
and reality slips away
time is lost
and reality slips away

It gets better
Life gets better.
Track Name: Something New
I was passin by tryna explain
the colours I see in you
you and I both know now
we're living in something new.
Track Name: The Highway
Systematic woman
I want to speak of many things
and if so make me a poet
and let me explain my dream,
I heard strange loud voices
and whispering sounds
echoes in the hallway
tryna hold me down.

My minds a highway highway
going up town,
will you go my way
don't be
slowin me down,
the highway highway
nowhere bound
will you go my way my way
see you around

I'm letting you know

Live inside your imagination
listen to your dreams
deny your reality
it's not what it seems,
recall the spring fires
try trembling to ignore
it's always the toughest
before you walk through that door,
my life is long my mother said
silent streets no more
seven breaths please wake me
in a world with no war
keep our lives in motion
it's there solidify
come with me and I'll show you
The highways of the minds

And you know
The highways of the minds
Track Name: Daylight
I've been searching for the daylight
pays right

I dream my hand
your invisible sign
under it's warm way,
my heart beats
rises and falls like
so many echoes,
as spirits tremble
death plays with souls of man,
silhouettes burned against the sky
mist clings on high
time fell
sleep falls

in the forest of divided night
shadows
sleep falls
darkness claimed the world

I've been searching for the daylight
pays right

in time something that runs and forms
from toward the trees,
dark water
time that falls and runs inside us
dark water

shadows, space, earth and time
something that runs and falls and passes
through my mind
that's how all the lights go over the earth
