Track Name: Tricky Sun
So the sun is shining on me, it only exposed my dream. Take away what I never had, I think you just set me free. Tried to find you, reaching for you, save me, save you? I don't owe you. So the sun is shining today, but I'm far below the waves. Tried to swim but drifted away, only dreaming of kicking legs. Tried to find you, reaching for you, save me, save you? I don't know you. I was over this. Why'd you show me this? Tricky sun... tricky sun...
Track Name: Blink
Go, like the ones before, or leave the battle on the shore. Blink, turn the other cheek. Now swim, swim, swim - swim before you sink... and take someone with you. Be anywhere you are. You're free, but don't you go too far. Think about it, doesn't it seem weird? So run, run, run before you disappear...and take someone with you.
Track Name: These Days
I don't believe you - can't even see you...must be true, if you say it's so, baby I won't go. I always follow...wish for tomorrow to be mine - baby step in line and do what I say. These days are strangers like teenagers to soothsayers. Stranded, abandoned, teach me your lesson and go away. Like the man told you, don't wanna have to scold you - be like me, it'll set you free to do what I say. Hard pill to swallow - I'm leaving here tomorrow. Follow me, it'll set you free to do what I say. These days are falling without calling for salvation. Branded, caught red-handed, teach me your lesson and go away.
Track Name: Human
Midnight upon you and you linger, captured by the gaze of curious strangers. I'm watching the time like it's in danger; you the spectacle of pointing fingers, and you wish you were gone, wish you were gone. Just one more step, why do you stumble? Fooled again by righteous feigning humble. I'm falling behind, an unwilling pilgrim; you, crossing the line just like a human, and you wish you were gone, wish you are gone. You've come undone, you wish you were gone. In your defense, you've tried - look your demon in the eyes and lie...just like a human, lie like a human.
Track Name: Fly On, Live at RIBCO 8/7/15
There's a voice in your head calling you from the dead. Don't wanna go, don't wanna stay, feel alone either way. Let me whisper something that will help to ease your mind, oh yeah. Let me give you something make the universe seem kind, oh yeah. Heed the call, but take your time. When you fall, come from behind. Were you looking for a lover who will buy lots of things, oh yeah. Looking for an angel with the heavy metal wings, oh yeah. She said "fly on - we're all looking". Fly on, we're all looking. Fly on.
Track Name: Happy, Live at RIBCO 6/27/15
Here's another scandal. Someone light a candle - he pulled the trigger. Watch the whole thing bleed on your TV. Gathered 'round the table, willing and they're able to push the button, blow the whole thing all to smithereens. One more hit is all it takes, there's no need to complicate. Fear it, love it, wear it well. Found some heaven, make it hell. Angel on your shoulder, devil on the other - does not matter - horns or halo, you be on your way. Did you pick you poison, victor or the victim - what's your pleasure? Drink it down - this could be the day. One more hit is all it takes, there's no need to complicate. Fear it, love it, wear it well. Beg for heaven, give 'em hell. But I am happy. I am happy. I am happy. Let's all be happy.
