Track Name: About Face

Track Name: On The Run (From My Mind)
Never let it be said that
I'm not coming back I see another side of you
You are gaining steam and size
Taking over 'cuz you are wise
I've got so much more to do
It drags me
And leaves me here to find a broken bunch of rules and a guide
I'm on the run from my mind
I'm on the run
I'm on the run I'm on the run from my mind
It leaves me broken down by the side of the road
And I have never known to fix anything
I'm on the run from my mind
I'm on the run
I'm on the run I'm on the run from my mind
I've broken down before
Lying underneath the floor
Sinking on the edge somehow
All this has left me flat
I know I am coming back to where I am in control
It drags me
And leaves me here to find a broken bunch of rules and guide
Still I don't know where I am
I don't know where I am
It's alright
I'm not afraid to claim
I'm not afraid to die
I'm on the run from my mind
Track Name: Clear
(instrumental)
Track Name: Your Precious Time
When I first met you
I was broken down
I didn't think you would stop and pick me up and take me home
Now I notice when you're not around
I can't find my way back from the places I end up
But that's alright
There's a fired up expression in your eyes
A sky destructive inner space delight
I look things over and I find
I plan to see you on the other side
We shouldn't try to cross it now
You can't afford the toll it's high
And then I wonder why you're still around
I know you saw the button raised but wisely passed it by
And that's alright
There's a fired up expression in your eyes
A sky destructive inner space delight
I look things over and I find
The story's over in my mind
I'm leaving shining things behind
I can't afford your precious time
But that's alright
There's a fired up expression in your eyes
A sky destructive inner space delight
I look things over and I find
The story's over in my mind
I'm leaving shining things behind
I can't afford your precious time
You can have some of mine
Track Name: Screeching Birds
(instrumental)
Track Name: Reacting To Nothing
You can talk if you want to
And I can sleep if I want to
I can sit and look over the garden reacting to nothing
You can yell if you want to
I can hide my ears in the corner
I can sneeze if I have to since the plants are getting off
I can run in place
Circle around the Lido deck
I like to watch shuffleboard on the screen
You can talk if you want to
I will listen if I care to
I'm boiling water to hear the teapot scream
You can walk to the corner of the room where I am standing
I dream of flying
Never landing
You can stand there watching the past
Since I don't know what to do
I can hunt in place lost in science fiction
You can talk if you want to
And I can sleep if I want to
I can sit and look over the garden
Reacting to nothing
In this image flying off the wall like Michael Jackson
It's out of the kitchen and into the cupboard
Port and starboard into the tuna net
I have patched the water
You can use it if you want to
You can talk if you want to
And I can sleep if I want to
I can sit and look over the garden
Reacting to nothing
Track Name: Thought About It Twice
I've thought about it twice
You and I would not here if it was not so nice
And the witches without brooms
Sweeping me beneath the floor
As if they knew they could
Do you know what it was?
I am flying off the handle coming unglued
And I've seen that before
It surprises me but quickly ends
I am glad to find
And it's stuck in my brain
It seems that we are not always in the same game
I've thought about it twice
You and I would not here if it wasn't so nice
I've thought about it twice
I've thought about it twice
I've thought about it twice
Track Name: Lose Track Of Time
Lose track of time
It's not hard to find
It's floating beyond the surface of our world
Lose track of time
Not going anywhere
I don't want it
You can take it from me
Invisible particles
Riding all around the vacuum packed ceiling wax
Lose track of time
We don't need it anymore today
Lose track of time
Are you glad it's fading away?
Track Name: Think Of Things
Think of things
Think of worlds that are falling apart
Take a ride to the side
I wonder where to start
This won't happen again
I say this to myself my only friend
You and I ride it out
This shit is falling apart
Look around feeling down
Canyon in my sight
This won't happen again
Send this to ourselves our only friends
I can't see well in this sea
I am blinded by something I can't hear but I know is real
This should not happen on my watch
My dreams are waking up to see we're out of touch
Think of worlds flowing down no time to pick them up
Sinking down falling down walking with my crutch
I need that to keep me upright
I tell that to you my secret friend
I can't see well in this sea
I am blinded by something I can't hear but I know is real
This should not happen on my watch
My dreams are waking up to see we're out of touch
Think of things
Think of worlds that are falling apart
Take a ride to the side
I wonder where to start
Track Name: Surfing In Space
(instrumental)
Track Name: And You Can See ...
I've been wrong once or twice before
I've been wrong more times than I can count
Drawing circles in the wrong direction
I can see them on the ground
And you can see
What you want from me
But I can't be exactly who you want me to be
We'll end up where we want to be you and me
I never thought I could see into the future and still I try
And you can see
What you want from me
But I can't be exactly who you want me to be
All of this has got me thinking
We're gonna do what we have to do
All the time I get to realizing why I'm here with you
And you can see
What you want from me
But I can't be exactly who you want me to be
And you can see
What you want from me
Track Name: Path
Blasting along on a rocket ship to nowhere
Do you feel that's where you belong?
I've been there before
And I'll be there again
You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am
No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are
Moving past the place we were supposed to get off
Riding the highway on the right path to your life
You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am
No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are
Didn't see the sign
Not clearly marked
It never is
Could not find the path
Not sure if it exists
And then you find you're already on it
You have found the path
And the world expands the way you wanted it to eventually
Blasting along on a rocket ship to somewhere
That will always be your path
You can tell me what you want me to be ... I am
No one can change who they want you to be ... you already are
Track Name: Cyclone
(instrumental)
Track Name: Fever Plow
(instrumental)
Track Name: Compromise
Out of the dog house and into the fire
I bet you're glad it's not getting higher
I have seen the writing
Invisible in the hall
I wonder if you're on the same plane as me at all
But then you and I agree
We see life the same how we want it to be
Wonder why it's so hard to see
Find the extreme or somewhere in between
Where you and I agree
We can't live our lives without some secrecy
Imaginary vacuum packed reality
Triangle pressure angles coming out of nowhere
Compromise hell we can super size
But then you and I agree
We see life the same how we want it to be
Wonder why it's so hard to see
Find the extreme or somewhere in between
Where you and I agree
Track Name: Sick Day
(instrumental)
Track Name: The Troll In Me
I'm doing things I can't explain
I'm not so mean
What's wrong with my brain?
It must the troll in me
It must be controlling me
Coming to the surface more and more each day
I keep talking to you
And you're walking away
It's got something to do with the rotten things I say
I'm not trying to hurt you even though it seems I am
I come out from under the bridge and look at all I've done
It must the troll in me
It must be controlling me
Coming to the surface more and more each day
I'm still talking to you
And you're walking away
It's got something to do with the rotten things I say
It must be the troll in me
Track Name: Do What You Want
I want the lining of my jacket
To match the fireworks in my head
Identify, conquer, and cower
Under the air of covering up
Time froze it's cold in there
I stood still as if I didn't care
I'm parched feeling fine
Still my cup is not dry
Chaotic time following the crooked line
Do what you want
Do what you want
It's alright with me
You're happy with what
How can that be?
There's so much more that you need
No way to be guaranteed
You can do what you want
Do what you want
It's alright with me
Do what you want
Do what you want with me
Track Name: Opinion
Blocking the escalator
I want to pass
But I don't feel like raising my voice or telling you to move
Keeping things the same
The way they are today
Nothing can hurt you you may say but maybe not out loud
Eyes in the back of my head have got me looking around
Sometimes the future come and creeps around now face it
Nothing looks exactly the same when seen through different eyes
How things are perceived blindly maybe opinion
You swear does not exist but you never agree
Because you are right and everyone is wrong
You try to keep people down and wish they'd all move on
Everybody's an expert on something
No one can win
Eyes in the back of my head have got me looking around
Sometimes the future come and creeps around now face it
Nothing looks exactly the same when seen through different eyes
How things are perceived blindly maybe opinion
Outward appearance not obvious
Then you wonder
If and when you will crack
Who or what are you blaming your problems on but yourself
And they escort you out of the building and say good luck
You expressed your opinion all too wrong
And they say you're wrong
Now you must move
Go think on your own time
