Track Name: Haste and Telegraph
Dirt-sparkling sidewalks glistening in the sunlight:
Home to those who wander and home to those who wait...
For someone or something to bring change.

A young, juxtaposing crowd, wandering in groups
Of two, five, three, six- glide on by and live their lives
Of textbooks, promised money, and their fix.

Along with them are people connecting through the streets
By selling those who tour an authentic piece of history
Of people’s power, freedom of speech...

The Blasting Conjunction of Music and Laughter,
Herbs, Piss and Pleading
Walking signs and pick up lines,
And the blatant avoidance: blatant avoidance of eye contact.
Students hide away as the day turns to moonlight,
Highlighting the bodies of those who bonded, begged, and pleaded,
And those who hope the next day will end.

The Blasting Conjunction of Music and Laughter,
Herbs, Piss and Pleading, Walking signs and pick up lines,
And the blatant avoidance: the blatant avoidance of eye contact.
Track Name: And So They Go
Friends: They Last Along the Ages
Within Your Heart Throughout the Pages
Tricky Ticks Take Away the TIme
One Tick Closer Towards the Goodbyes.

Go Forward Towards Your LIve’s Embraces.
I’ll Take You With Me,
Just Promise You’ll Take Me, Too.

La Dee Dah (x4)

Now, I’m Never Good at Goodbyes,
Avoiding the Forthcoming Cries.
One Day They’re There
Tomorrow’s Head Erases.
Happy Hearts will Hold the Traces:

Go Forwards Towards Your Live’s Embraces.
I’ll Take You With Me
Just Promise You’ll Take Me, Too.

La Dee Dah (x4)

I’m Sure I’ll Be Seeing You Soon.
Track Name: All We Can Do
Well, Now we’re all getting by
Time after time
In this world we all live in,
Until the Day we Die.
Oh, how can we live here-
Time after time
In his world we live in?
We’re just getting by
And in time after time
This world we all live in
May come a place for you and I.
He Said: “All we can do is Try, Try, Try.” (x2)
And Never Do It Again.
Track Name: Bloomin'
There is a shadow trippin’ up my steps.
The Face in the mirror reflecting regrets.

Don’t fly high that mountain!
Just take it step by step.
Rock by rock- or you’ll tumble and fall.

Oh, but remember. Oh, but remember:
“ ‘Though it seems gloomy,
there is a flower bloomin’ somewhere out there”

There are the roses (In Portland)
Bracing their thorns.
There are the dahlias (In Seattle)
Embracing the storms.
There are the poppies (California)
Scorched wilted and torn.

Oh, but remember. Oh, but remember:
“ ’Though it seems gloomy,
there is a flower bloomin’ somewhere out there”
Track Name: Social Ammo
Let’s shoot our words up to the sky.
Let them linger, let them die.
Let them lay where your hatred tells lies.
Let them go where your hatred lies.

Oh, let it go. Oh, ego.

Patch ‘em up there: nice and slow.
Sit and watch ‘em until you know:
It’s swiftly seeping social ammo.
Swiftly seeping social ammo.

Oh, let it go. Oh, ego. Oh, let it go. Oh, social ammo.

This could happen in every life:
Each cloud can cry of grief and strife,
Your tongue triggering thundering blows
Of swiftly seeping social ammo.
Swiftly seeping social ammo.

Oh, let it go. Oh, social ammo.. Oh, let it go. Oh, ego.
Track Name: Just My Luck
One door closes, another door opens.
Karma’s calling on all sides,
Hearing nothing but snickering on the other side.

Changing of the planet’s divides, earth moon phases
Moody changes intertwine,
Chugging forward, yet we- we trip behind!

And I suppose it’s just my luck. (x4)

Welcome home these wondering worries,
Stormy surrenders to power’s swarming
I wonder wherever your winds will want me.

Questions they quiver, quick and qualmy
Keep me surprised with hurdles before me
Anxious sighs of what might hide.

And I suppose it’s just my luck. (x4)
Track Name: Wise Words
Enough Guilt To go around,
Shove it aside: bury it in the ground.
Not a word, yet to it you are bound.
Mind’s anger resides always making a sound. (x2)
Track Name: Only This Moment
We Have only this moment (x3)
Will you take my hand?
