Track Name: Living Days
Destiny's like energy
Left behind and still they're counting
Try to hide, try to eat
Finding life so bittersweet
Confess your worst
And then you're cursed
Destination nowhere
World's absurd, have you heard?

Welcome to your Living Days
Life's an any ways…
Living Days
Life's an any ways…

Confession of possession
Human need, or are we just listening
Told to claim and build your fame
Till you hold all sacred trees
And pay for these
Our possession is our curse
So ride your hearse down the road of victory
What do you see?

Jealousy and harmony
Fighting for her glory
War is pure, and unsure
Fighting for her treasures…

Living Days
Life's an any ways…
Living Days
Life's an any ways…

Jealousy and harmony
Fighting for her glory
War is pure, and unsure
Fighting for her treasures…

Living Days
Life's an any ways…
Living Days
Life's an any ways…

Living Days
Life's an any ways…
Living Days
Life's an any ways…
Track Name: Modified Human
Wake up and smell the roses
They're blowing in the air
As I touch her perfect scented hair…

Now do I dare, cross the line
I cross enemy lines
Would you care, if I stare
For a moment's time?
Rewind…

She looks like a skeleton, moves like a specimen
Another modified human
She smells like a magazine, dressed for the tele screen
Another modified being, yeah…

Wake up and smell the roses fine
And drink your perfect blood, your wine
I hear a voice calling my name
And I don't know whether to blame
My fame, or so you know the name
Of her…

I keep on listening slow
I keep on listening slow
So steady as she goes…

She looks like a skeleton, moves like a specimen
Another modified human
She smells like a magazine, dressed for the tele screen
Another modified being, yeah…

Hey…

Sing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey-yeah
Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey…
Sing Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey-e, yeah…
Track Name: With You.
I’d Like To See The World With You…
Fly The Sky & Sail… The Ocean Blue…
But If We Couldn’t Be…There’s Nothin’ I Wanna Do
‘Cause See One’s Just Not As Perfect, As Two…

With You…
All My Worries Seem To Disappate In Air
With You…
Never In My Life Felt So Aware…
With You…
I Find Myself In An Endless Stare
With You…
There’s Nothin’ Else That Compares

I’d Like To Take You To The Moon
And Hideaway Wrapped Up Tight, Locked In Our Cocoon
And I’d Hold You Everyday, In Our “Puzzle-Pieced Way”
Just As Long, As You’d Let Me Stay…

With You…
All My Worries Seem To Disappate In Air
With You…
Never In My Life Felt So Aware…
With You…
I Find Myself In An Endless Stare
With You…
There’s Nothin’ Else That Compares

(Oooooh, Ooooooh, Oooooh, Oooooh…)

I’d Like To Take You Undersea
And Show You The Life, You Used To Be…
And I Would Hold Your Hand,
Even If No One Understands
‘Cause See I Finally Know, Where I’m Supposed To Be…

With You…
All My Worries Seem To Disappate In Air
With You…
Never In My Life Felt So Aware…
With You…
I Find Myself In An Endless Stare
With You…
There’s Nothin’ Else That Compares
Track Name: I'm Still Here
I don't know where to go
I don't know where to be
But still I'm here…

Catching tiger's by tails
Gettin' slashed with their nails
No time for fear…

Living life in the next
Over-thinking complex
The new career…

Took my paper degree
To make a melody
And I'm still here…

I don't know where to go
I don't know where to be
But still I'm here…

Catching tiger's by tails
Gettin' slashed with their nails
No time for fear…

Living life in the next
Over-thinking complex
The new career…

Took my paper degree
To make a melody
And I'm still here...
Track Name: The Door
Everything you see
Turns into... Infinity
It's all around me
And still I have to breathe...
Never seen just a place
Like I see today...
And by the way
The way we move
Makes it time to see... Our imortality.

You don't know what you got until it's gone
I heard the same song written so many times before
Now I'm lying on the floor, wanting more...
Would you let me in, or leave me at the door.

You don't know what you got until it's gone
I heard the same song written so many times before
Now I'm lying on the floor, wanting more...
Would you let me in, or leave me at the door…

Oh yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah…
Ah yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah…
Yeah, Yeah
Yeah, Yeah
Yeah, Yeah
Ah, Yeah, Yeah
Yeah, Yeah
Yeah...
Track Name: Get Free
Choo-Choo (X4)

Got a letter, got a sweater
Sweater never better
So I gotta put it on…

Imitate my sound, till it gets around
yeah…

Now baby tell your story
I'll forgive the lie
Locked in a prison
But you don't know why
Drowning in reason
Forget the tie, yeah…

Ah...
I gotta get away
Ah…
Baby let me
Ah…
I ain't got the time to get free…

Choo-Choo (X4)

Now baby open your eyes
Do you see my surprise
It's waitin' here for you

Everything you ever wanted
Everything you ever needed
Everything you ever knew…

Ah...
I gotta get away
Ah…
Baby let me
Ah…
I ain't got the time to get free…

Choo-Choo (X4)

Come on, Come on, Come on, Come on…
Come on, yeah
Take me there, where someone cares
And everyone stares
Send your symphony
My epiphany
Destiny, beyond the sea
And now we're free…
Track Name: Lady Liberty
When you stand in the sea
And stare at me
Hold my hand, understand
Who I am
Hold your light
Help me see
Make me warm
For your flame
Always be
Solid stone

You're the one who stands for me
You're the girl who sets me free
I want you to be
My lady liberty

"Redist" lips,
Whitest teeth,
Bluest eyes…
For your stars
Cannot lie
To the sky

Value green
And convene
To have air
Like a tree
You and me
Always share…

You're the one who stands for me
You're the girl who sets me free
I want you to be
My lady liberty

You're the one who stands for me
You're the girl who sets me free
I want you to be
My lady liberty
oh, oh
My lady liberty
My lady liberty
Track Name: Bumble Bee Yourself
I Grew Up Thinkin’ That My Teacher Knew Best
They Told Me How To Act, They Told Me How To Dress
And If I Asked Them Why, The Same Ole’ “Just Because” Reply…

And Then My Baseball Coach, He Told Me I Was Fat
Told Me I Didn’t Deserve To Hold That Bat
I Could Never Take Down My Shield
Or Else He’d Throw Me In Right Field…

You Gotta Bumble Bee Yourself™
That’s Livin’ Life For No One Else
‘Cause If You Smile It’s Always Good,
So You Should…
Don’t Let The Weaklings Hide You’re Wings
From Flyin’ Over Everything
‘Cause If You Were A Bee,
The Sky Ain’t Just So High…
So Baby, Fly…

See My Friends Told Me That Smilin’ Wasn’t Cool
And They’d Call Me Stupid Every Day In School
Laughin’ At Me Made Me Smile
And I Guess, That That’s Worth While
But Maybe Some Day I’ll Be Welcomed Up On A Stage
To Finally Smile Again And Stop This Hidin’ In My Cage

And All My Friends Would Cheer
Like They’re Bringin’ In The New Year
And Then I’ll Finally Know, Where I Belong…

You Gotta Bumble Bee Yourself™
That’s Livin’ Life For No One Else
‘Cause If You Smile It’s Always Good,
So You Should…
Don’t Let The Weaklings Hide You’re Wings
From Flyin’ Over Everything
‘Cause If You Were A Bee,
The Sky Ain’t Just So High…
So Baby, Fly…

Baby, Baby, Fly…
Baby, Baby Fly Away…
Baby, Baby Fly…
Just Fly Away…
Track Name: Alone Stone
One, Two, Three…

Oh's…

My own dreams tell you truth as fable as they seem
But when my eyes are closed I feel like I am in a dream
I hope that you would wait for me, on the other side
I know it's simple but it's running through me all the time

And I…
I feel alone, yeah
So I'll…
Just keep on rollin' like a stone

Can you feel me now, confused
Take these three small simple words
And do with them what you want to
I hope that you would wait for me, on the other side
I know it's simple but it's running through me all the time

And I…
I feel alone, yeah
So I'll…
Just keep on rollin' like a stone

I don't want to sleep
(Just close your eyes…)
The night is keeping sheep
(From running free outside…)
I don't wanna sleep
I wanna stay awake all night!
Track Name: Routine Way
I remember when I had a calendar
Tellin' me where to be if I wasn't sure
But after a while I started to see
That my life was running on repeat

So I took my schedule and I threw it out the door
But now I couldn't tell you what my life would have in store
See I'm just an empty slate with some energy to dream
And I'm feeling as stable as a pebble in a stream, yeah…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And enjoy your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way…

Time is flying and you don't know what you've seen
Pots of coffee with expired magazines
Desks piled high with their in's and out's
I just can't believe that's what life's about

See I'm sure you've got a family
If you don't you probably will
And if you find a lover
You'll find the time is still
And if you get a puppy dog
He'll always be your friend
But if you fall into a pattern
All of this depends…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And enjoy your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way…

Now I urge you to take a break
And read yourself a book
Or go into the art museum
And have yourself a look
Take your lady or your gent
On a walk through the park
And stay to watch the sunset
Until it's dark
Have a potluck dinner with your family
Or a group of friends over for Monopoly ®
And when you've done all of this
You'll finally understand
That love isn't able to be
Counted on your hand, yeah…

Wake up, wake up
Goes the alarm clock
Get up, get up
It's a brand new day
Put on, Put on
Your clothes and your makeup
And thank you for your stay
At the Routine Way…
The Routine Way
It's brand new day
The Routine Way, yeah...
Track Name: Song #2
I've seen the bottom, I've seen the sky
But still I'm gonna try
Said some wishes, cried a tear
And still I'm glad I'm here

Don't go waitin' for me
'Cause I just got to be free
I found my wishes, you find yours
I'll meet you at the seize of perfection shores…
Yeah...

Forgotten hours, forsaken sky
And still I'm askin' why
Provoke the reason, forgive the lie
As long as we understand why…

Don't go waitin' for me
'Cause I just got to be free
I found my wishes, you find yours
I'll meet you at the seize of perfection shores…
Yeah...

Don't go waitin' for me
'Cause I just got to be free
I found my wishes, you find yours
I'll meet you at the seize of perfection shores…
Yeah...
Track Name: Words To A Song
Must be the best
Better than the West
Better than the rest
Are you keeping' score?

The sky is beneath us
Yet we still see stars
And we marry to white picket fence
What's yours, is mine, is ours…

Fortunes are made, while brother's are lost
Considered just an ordinary business cost
Is it wrong to reside in a place you belong?
Is it wrong to believe in the worlds to a song?

A heartbeat is only as good
As the soul that can utilize mind
Intellect entering Bohemian clubs
Leaving everyone blind…
Father foundation, you never can fail
The brains have backed your name
Whether crooked betrayers, or selfless savers
Knowledge is the game…

Fortunes are made, while brother's are lost
Considered just an ordinary business cost
Is it wrong to reside in a place you belong?
Is it wrong to believe in the worlds to a song?

Fortunes are made, while brother's are lost
Considered just an ordinary business cost
Is it wrong to reside in a place you belong?
Is it wrong to believe in the worlds to a song?
