Track Name: Merman
when you come down
you see whats real
you see what’s real

when you come down
you see who’s real
you see what’s real

i was always running
but now a days i’m learning
i see the world turning around

when you see clear
you know I’m real.
you know what’s real.

i was always running
but now a days i’m learning
i see the world turning around

i see it turn around
i see it turn around

you know what’s real
you know what’s real

you see what’s real
you see what’s real
Track Name: Human Too
You came along a prince of song,
Nothing could, nothing could keep me from
staring some, caring some ….
Minutes away in my brain boy.

Curious wonder, thunderous under,
How can you help an inspired rush?
Or a blush from a crush?
Minutes away in my brain boy.

I know what is true.
It’s easy to get fooled.
I am just like you.
Human Too.
Human Too.

Secret Longing kept in close,
Do you hide words away from the ink?
Do they speak what you think?
Minutes away in my brain boy.

I know what is true.
It’s easy to play cool.
I am just like you.
Human Too.
Human Too.

I am just like you.
It’s easy to get fooled.
I know what is true.
Human Too.
Track Name: Reflection
Mirror Mirror on the Wall 

Who’s the fairest of them all?
It’s not me - It’s not you - It’s only our reflection. 

Reflection

Mirror Me I’ll mirror you
What I give I give to you.
You are me - and we is you - We are our reflection.

Reflection

No excuse for what we see
There’s no excuse what we dream
And there is no one luckier than we.
We are choice
We are freedom
We create this kingdom
Do you see the things you do? See myself you?

Reflection

Mirror Mirror on the wall
I see the truth - I see it all
I take the jump to take the fall
‘cause I don’t want protection.

Bad is good and good is bad
and you are bad and I am good
and I am bad and you are good and …. (there is no perfection).

Jump into the deepest ocean.

Drown the noise - hear devotion.
No one is luckier than we.
We are choice - We are freedom
We create this kingdom.
Do you see yourself in me? See yourself you?


Reflection
Track Name: Picture Show
Lost in a storm - the winter wind blowing
Light is guide - I can’t see where it’s going
Time.



Love is a book you pass on forever
reading and writing - no ending is better
Time.

Moves fast and then slow. Where does time go?
What does time know?
Will pictures show us in them?

Love is a drink strong and liquid
Liquid is ice - forms change when shifted 
Time.

Moves fast and then slow. Where does time go?
What does time know?
Will pictures show us in them?


I’m just the girl that wants you to choose me
You're just the boy - You don’t want to lose me
Time.

Moves fast and then slow. Where does time go?
What does time know?
Will pictures show us in them?



Music is life - it brings order to madness - The sound covers up sadness
Time.
Track Name: Figure 8

Figure 8 is double 4
Figure 4 is half of 8.
If you skate
you would be great
if you could make
a Figure 8
A circle that turns round upon it’s self

1 times 8 is 2 times 4
4 times 4 is 2 times 8
If you skate
upon thin ice,
you’d be wise
if you thought twice
before you made another single move.



Figure 8 is how you skate,
circle back but i don’t wait.
Cannot make the same mistake,
Figure now - Figure late.
A circle that turns round upon itself.

Figure 8 is double 4
Minus 2, there’s not much more.
If you skate good luck to you
1 times 1 - does not make 2.
The math just doesn’t add up anymore.
Track Name: 730 miles
Sunday - a bright day
A long drive - a short life.

The highway rolls along -
My love is freedom.

730 miles to go

The highway - I stay between the line.
My mind is never quiet anytime.

The highway - it rolls along.
You are my Love. You are Freedom.

730 miles to go

There’s a place that I want to go to -
There’s a place that I want to know -
There’s a place that want to get to -
I wanna get there - I wanna get clear -

There’s a place that I want to go to -
There’s a place that I want to show -
There’s a place that I want know you -
I wanna go there - I wanna know - I want to go - I want to know -

Headlights
They light the night
We drive alone
We know the road. Freedom.

730 miles.
Track Name: Silence
Silence was a brand new voice - Came with love not by choice
Quieted the intuition - Said “don’t listen - don’t listen”

Silence was a state of grace - It became my favorite place
Conquering the world around me - Make it lonely - make it lonely.

Silence


Silence is a place you hide - Some people say it’s like a lie

What you hold becomes quite heavy - as you carry - as you carry.



Silence is the easy weapon - used instead of confession -
to the ones who abuse it - We choose it - We use it.


Silence

This is for forever after - Now is now and now is never.
All or less - it’s just the best that we
remember - remember - remember
that we can let go.


Silence is the way I watch you - From afar - with without you

All the thoughts that scream and dream -
I keep thinking - I keep thinking.



Silence I say to the voice - Don’t go past a wiser choice -
I’ll stop you now or live you later - I know better - I know better.

Silence


This is for forever after. Now is now and now is never.
All or less - it’s just the best that we remember - remember - remember

LOVE LOVE LOVE
