Track Name: Incarnation
My father said listen son
Grow up and be an honest man
No one can save you from your ways
Promise you won't lose your soul
When you are out there on your own
Tell me that you will not lose your way

No one said it would be easy
Day after day of longing and sacrifice
When you're only appeasing
What can you change
Trying hard not to lose control
Playing games that we just do not know
Now it seems your believing this is the way

We don't walk this earth just to sell our souls
And we don't need to buy their broken ways

Now I'm calling on the past to lead me
Telling myself everything's ok
When the lights turn red
Track Name: Cars in the City
Tell me are you going to race the day
When the morning wakes your soul
Tell me will you tremble from the start
Will you stay so strong
Tell me are you going to make an escape
When your cage is left open
Tell me will you tremble in your heart
When you felt so small
I bet, I bet, I bet your lonely
I've been, I've been, I've been so lonely

Drove with the cars to the city
Left without a cent in my hand
A new start for me
My senses come around
And I swore that I didn't need money
As long as I've got a place
To hold my dreams
My senses come around

Tell me are you going to chase the rain
When the morning wakes your soul
Tell me will you tremble in your heart
'cause you felt so small
I bet, I bet, I bet your lonely
I've been, I've been, I've been so lonely

Drove with the cars to the city
Left without a cent in my hand
A new start for me
My senses come around
And I swore that I didn't need money
As long as I've got a place to hold my dreams
My senses come around

If it fills my needs I'll take it over
This awkward dance and song
The summer has come and is over
Ever since my love I let you down.
Track Name: Breaking Up the Balance
I was seeing all the people this way
While I was drinking all my feelings away
And we're a shimmer of our yesterday
I cannot take it 'cause I do not own it
And the past don't lie
As were breaking up the balance
No the facts don't lie
We'll be breaking up the balance

I'm alone at the bottom of the sea
And everybody's floating away
I'm alone at the bottom of the sea
And everybody's floating away
And we'll break from our bodies
Along the way up
And we'll break from our bodies
Along the way

I was watching all the scenery change
While I was drinking all my feelings away
And now the summer feels like yesterday
I cannot take it 'cause I do not own it

I'm alone at the bottom of the sea
And everybody's floating away
I'm alone at the bottom of the sea
And everybody's floating away

Tell me your secrets, tell me your secrets' tell me your thoughts
Tell me your secrets, tell me your secrets' tell me your thoughts
Don't tell me that were going to give up
I'm along my way up
I'm along my way up.
Track Name: Pranava Vendanta
Sitting next to the river
Letting go of the past
I sit so long, I sit so long I'm a wreck

Woken up by the moonlight and we come undone
And we're running through the night 'cause we're ready
We're ready

And they say you're here just to tear this whole world down
Just a little bit of terror and your walls fall all around
So you're on your way just to tear this whole world down
Just surrender, just surrender, you will see

Woken up by the moonlight and we come undone
And we're running through the night 'cause we're ready
We're ready

And they say you're here just to tear this whole world down
Just a little bit of terror and your walls fall all around
So you're on your way just to tear this whole world down
Just surrender, just surrender, you will see

They said please can you stop this madness
But my mind is like a ghost in a machine
They said breathe and just feel the vibrations
And you will free the ghost from the machine

Well maybe it will come and let you go
But the pain feels so real I couldn't know
Oh please just come here and let me go
I surrender I surrender now I know.
Track Name: All These Days
All these days we've been stripped bare for the summer
And you've shown me I had to let you go for now

It's hard enough to stand in the water so I'm laying down
It's hard enough to stand in the water so I'm laying down

And so she is gone and I'm right here all by myself
And all my love has turned into rainy days
And it's so hard to stitch up all these holes

I could never save you alone

And so you found your way back home this summer
Your whole life in a duffle bag that I bought

It's hard enough to stand in the water so I'm laying down
It's hard enough to stand in the water so I'm laying down

And so she is gone and I'm right here all by myself
And all my love has turned into rainy days
And it's so hard to stitch up all these holes

I could never save you alone
Not me.
Track Name: Simple Life
Shots ring out plain as day
And all the bullets they fall
We sit back until five
And plan our getaway

They scream to put your hands up
And don't say a word
We'll make this easy for you friends
It's your money or your life

All the silver tongues and signs of class
All the structures made of steel
And all we ever wanted was a simple life
And all we ever needed was a simple life

And when we're gone
We leave no path to trace
We slipped into the night
We made our getaway

They scream to put your hands up
And don't say a word
We'll make this easy for you friends
It's your money or your life

All the silver tongues and signs of class
All the structures made of steel
And all we wanted was a simple life
And all we needed was a simple life.
Track Name: Home
It's saturday I'm alone again
And the world just seems to spin away
And I hold my weight I'll not forget
As I smoke my only cigarette

Well you spun the globe just to stop it with your thumb
But it was all sea where your finger ended up
And so you try again and hope for better luck
There's got to be a place better than the one that you call home

I cross the days out with red pen
But the calendar never seems to end
If I find my way my soul will rest
As I hold on to my silhouette

Well you spun the globe just to stop it with your thumb
But it was all sea where your finger ended up
And so you try again and hope for better luck
There's got to be a place better than the one that you call home

And we all own these days

The light you leave on
This room is a sea of memories and daily castaways
And I sit and laugh at the circumstance
Of how my heart found a home

Well you spun the globe just to stop it with your thumb
But it was all sea where your finger ended up
And so you try again and hope for better luck
There's got to be a place better than the one that you call home
Track Name: This May Seem Alright
I may seem alright but i'm not ok
I don't know where the time is ever going to go
As i stand here just pounding my fist

I will come back for air when my body asks for it
And i know my senses are subdued

I could leave you but i would be upset
It's just a thought that comes and goes
It's all around, around, all around
This may seem alright
You do whatever you can to tell yourself
But it's not, no it's not, no it's not ever going to change you.

This may seem alright but it's not ok
As your voice begins to shake out of control
It's the truth that's so hard to admit
Well the words find a way to roll of your lips
And i know my senses are subdued

I could leave you but i would be upset
It's just a thought that comes and goes
It's all around, around, all around

This may seem alright
You do whatever you can to tell yourself
But it's not, no it's not, no it's not ever going to change you.
Track Name: The Universal
Can you believe still
Now you know that the movies are not real
Will the cameras still call, will the cameras still call


Let's make believe
'cause there ain't no truth to what we see
But we still scream and turn our heads
And laugh like we're young
And this could just be the last chance that we've got
And this could be the shedding of our skin

Selling all the pieces that you own'cause they hang around like ghosts
You need to take a stand, you had to let them go
So you settled all your bets, and set out far from home
Well these thoughts are not unique
Yes they're universal

You can't believe still
Now you know that nothing is quite real
So you just turn back to where you came from
And this could just be the last chance that you've got
And this could be the shedding of your skin

Selling all the pieces that you own
'cause they hang around like ghosts
You need to take a stand, you had to let them go
So you settled all your bets, and set out far from home
Well these thoughts are not unique
Yes they're universal

You can't believe still
When lies are the only thing that's real
So you just push ahead and pray for someone
To change the scene from color bars back to the silver screen
But you tell yourself you can't go back to where you came from
And this could just be the last chance that you've got
And this could be the shedding of your skin

Selling all the pieces that you own
'cause they hang around like ghosts
You need to take a stand, you had to let them go
So you settled all your bets, and set out far from home
Well these thoughts are not unique
Yes they're universal.
