Track Name: Dandy Lion Route
Transformation change and flux, in this world its the crux of everything, that is bound to happen. And it's all spinning round so fast, my present, future, and my past, I try to hold on but I cant, so I'll have to learn to let it go. Nothing lasts forever, I'm so glad that is the case, otherwise I might never get to leave this fucking place. I could sit here thinking on this curb until the day I die, but there is no reason to be hopeless, if you'll only dare to try.

The melody, rhythm, and tempo too, everything you thought you knew, it turns out we were beautifully mistaken .Kid your wise beyond your years, have courage dry those tears, everything will be okay, everything will be okay. On days like this I wonder why, we don't buy a bus and drive, somewhere where the cops don't know us all by name. The end is near the end is in sight, whose to say whats wrong or right, everything will be just fine, as long as we don't forget to breath.
Track Name: Respiratory Solution
I wish I was a leaf, and had the courage to let go and trust the wind wherever it may blow. I wish I was a bird, brave enough to trust my wings, I'd fly far away from here. I wish I was a star, with the guts to burn bright even when there is only darkness in sight. Oh but I, am a human being.

I'm infallible, susceptible to bias and belief, I'll try to hold hands with ghosts, still surprised by the grief that arises when I realize I'm only grabbing at thin air. Get so damn overwhelmed when I shouldn't even care. I'm arrogant, selfish, and oftentimes a prick, my tendency to overanalyze is making me so sick. I don't know what to do. Gonna close my eyes and take a deep breath or two.

Take it day by day, take it breath by breath. Stay in the moment, fuck all the rest. Honey do what you love, do what makes you smile, if you see a sunset (river flowing) stop and stare (sit) for a while. Cause life is too short, life is too precious, to get involved with things that you don't wanna mess with. I'm not saying I have all the answers now, i'm not saying I ever did.

I am leaf with the courage to let go, I'm following the wind wherever it may blow. I am a bird, brave enough to trust my wings, I'm flying far away from here. And I am a star with the guts to burn bright even though there is only darkness in sight. Cause I, am a human being.
Track Name: Eat The Roses
Longing for things i'm holding in my hands, yearning for that which I already have, mourning the death of whats still alive and well. As far as I'm concerned the future don't exist, and in my uniformed opinion, the path is just a myth. There's only here and now, and thats all there'll ever be.

So eat the roses now my dear, try to have courage kid and do away with fear, there is no more need to worry, no need to feel upset. You're on your way home, you're almost there don't you forget.

You'll still find me looking for belonging in an ash tray. I'll be searching for things that are right before my eyes. It only takes one brief moment of clarity to realize, that we're all in this together, and we've still got a long long way to go. Tripping and stumbling down this long dark and dusty road.

So eat the roses now my dear, try to have courage kid and do away with fear, there is no more need to worry, no need to feel upset. You're on your way home, you're almost there don't you forget.

eat the roses now my dear, try to have courage kid and do away with fear, there is no more need to worry, no need to feel upset. You're on your way home, you're almost there don't you forget.
Track Name: Left Without Words (dadadada)
For hundreds of years we've been fighting this system, so many wars I don't think I could list them. We know what you stand for, we know who you serve, its time we rise up and take back what we've earned. Endless damage as a result of corporate greed, people are hungry, left to die in the streets. Masses trapped in a state of apathy, while we mindless scroll down a fucking facebook feed.

And I don't really know what to say about it, so i'll say (dadada) ... one day this will all come crumbling down.

Fat cats try to make another buck or two, subjugate the many just to benefit the few, they'll build another pipeline, build another wall, destroy a fucking forest just to build a strip mall. As the air fills up with toxic clouds of smoke, politicians line their pockets while the people go for broke, prescribe another pill cause you can barely cope, we're left gasping for air when we can only choke


And I don't really know what to say about it, so i'll say (dadada) ... one day this will all come crumbling down.

Now is the time to stand up and fight, we'll show all our oppressors our power and might. They'll finally know the weight of our plight, as we torch down their cities, lets burn it all down tonight
Track Name: Improv For My Dead Best Friend Mary Shelly

Track Name: Sulfuric Solidarity (brimstone)
There's a fire in your eyes, and a fire in your heart, it burns beyond the end of time, and it burned long before the start. There is a fire burning deep, there is a fire burning red, it burned before you took your first breath, itll burn after you're dead.

This fire will consume, the illusions in its path, it'll burn everything up and leave a trail of scattered ash. Oh but there is a secret, in the tale that is this song, while you thought you were the listener, you've been the fire all along.

You are the ember, you are the flame, this thing you call reality is but an old and ancient game. We are the embers, we are the flames, though many sparks make up one fire in the end we're all the same.
