Track Name: intro to success
You told me once that if you write,
You'll keep your songs light

Never get into your the personal thoughts of night

About the wicked way the world turns right
Into emptiness

After we have made "our own mark"
Of abstinence?

We were not created to wait

The simple act of going straight
And completely missing the rate

Of consciousness that is
caused by the Miscommunication of
each one of us

And i try to stay away from pronouns
But that's that I see

Because even though I comes before e
You still come before me

I still overcome these
Moments of hate

And I dissolve and disintegrate
Into a pile of obsessed thoughts
About how I thought
I was the problem

You don't teach a child that they're mind matters
You show them through the way love is a pattern
And how it's not unlucky to walk under ladders
And how you can still see the rings of Saturn from
Thousands and thousands of miles away




That's how you get them to stay
Stay and sing
Stay and dance
Stay and believe in this beautiful world and these things that we fall in love with
Because this life
is gift
And gifts are received
With open arms and ease
Not thrown to pieces
The moment you see
That not all things are planned
With a pretty bow it stands
Slightly off center, but ran
Over by wandering hands
And fingers of anticipation

And that's why we wait
Because we were taught to negate
The truth from the future
Grabbing and reaching for
A light that illuminates your
Path to the nonexistent success route
Spaced evenly on the floor
Yes,
Leave it to success
Keep practicing for the test
That no one really knows the answers to
So maybe it's not a question of what but who
Is the one that lies between your dream and you.

Who cares
Track Name: finger paint
finger paint me a life
with blues and yellows that
swirl around each other
like the dancers that we are
use the colors in our love
as if the canvas was this world
finger paint me a life
use the colors of my coffee in the morning
take sunrise orange that flows through the windows
borrow the baby's pink laugh
over in the next room
finger paint me a life
don't worry about getting messy
because life itself is messy
and beautiful art is messy
and that's what they don't see.
finger paint me a life
with blues and yellows that
swirl around each other
like the dancers that we are
use the colors in our love
as if the canvas was this world
finger paint me a life.
Partake in the sea of your eyes
that shine with the moonlight
replicate the cupcakes we frost'
Dancing in the kitchen
shadow of the lipstick
stained up on your left cheek
finger paint me a life.
we could be a little more colorful
we could make a little more art
using the life we have
and some simple tools we could paint a life worth admiring.
finger paint me a life
with blues and yellows that
swirl around each other
like the dancers that we are
use the colors in our love
as if the canvas was this world
finger paint me a life
Track Name: i know
Broke a million hearts just for fun
Evil is as evil loves
Baby don't you know I'm ruthless

Poison in, each and every kiss
When and how, did it end like this
You should know now that it's stupid

"Hanging on
For dear life
Can't seem to stay"

"Gone as hell but never leaving
It's too bad loves not in season
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"

"Misty-eyed and sugar dreamin
Keeps you guessing, make believing
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"

Baby pink, wouldn't know it's me
Living in my own fantasy
Tearing up
I'll eat your heart out

Cotton candy coated stains
Is it true that you've gone insane
Hey what color is your heart now

"Hanging on
For dear life
Can't seem to stay"

"Gone as hell but never leaving
It's too bad loves not in season
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"

"Misty-eyed and sugar dreamin
Keeps you guessing, make believing
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"

Then I leave you
And you're beggin on the kitchen floor
Then I see you
And you're knockin on my front door
(Repeat under it) "Oh what a double edged ordeal
Nothing now I know that is real
Save it for another deal
Oh baby"


"Hanging on
for dear life
Couldn't seem to stay"

"Gone as hell but never leaving
It's too bad loves not in season
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"

"Misty-eyed and sugar dreamin
Keeps you guessing, make believing
You can say what you want
But I know I'm a drug"
Track Name: deficiency
they say dark's just an absence of light
strike a match and it'll be alright
well darling loneliness is a just an absence of you
kill my senses and let me through
through your walls and to your minds
these faces fade all in time
go home
to their mother who's waiting
be strong little one
I know what I'm doing in my mind we'll be fine
just stay with me
you'll have to believe in deficiency
Believe
to be okay when it hits us hardest
Believe
In deficiency
You may think that one day I'll leave you
I hope with all my heart that that ain't true
with these words, I'll leave you be
but not enough
to be gone
I'll return when you need me
I love you mystalight
I always will now
Take my thoughts use them here
and you'll be fine
you'll have to believe in deficiency
Believe
to be okay when it hits us hardest
Believe
In deficiency
You were mine
I was yours
everything wad dandy
then he came
he first appeared
so sweet like candy
and if we knew
what we know
I'd be so different
but not necessarily better
you'll have to believe in deficiency
Believe
to be okay when it hits us hardest
Believe
In deficiency
Track Name: five:thirteen
Cause baby you're my one way ticke3t
to a four way street
got my heart in a bottle
heard it's worth a quarter three
It's my muse it's my music
Cause I gotta feel that beat
you are the salt of the world
oh honey you're the wind in my hair
speeding down the interstate
it's the p[ump of my blood
when my heart accelerates
It's not love, it's not logic
we just gotta blame our fate
you are the salt of the world
and I know that we'll be fine
if we believe in you this time
and I know that we'll be fine
If we wait on you this time
We've got song in our heads
that we open up our lungs
to sing out loud
for everyone to learn
we've got love in our words
we recite to the crowds
who gather around to feel the art of the earth
we've got life in our hearts
That we open up for you
we are salt
we are artists
I'm starving for the taste of a life
where we learn to love our routes
and there's a tear in our heart we don't have to rip it out
There's a zest of the world that only artists know about
you are the salt of the world
and I know that we'll be fine
if we believe in you this time
and I know that we'll be fine
If we wait on you this time
We've got song in our heads
that we open up our lungs
to sing out loud
for everyone to learn
we've got love in our words
we recite to the crowds
who gather around to feel the art of the earth
we've got life in our hearts
That we open up for you
we are salt
we are artists
Track Name: somewhere between us
Somewhere between us
we looked at people
waiting for lights to fall
waiting and watching
chilling excitement
creating a wondrous world
so I took you into my hands that night
and I nourished your wounds
they healed
And I wanted to call
but you were busy
protecting your own alias
oh maybe we're lost in the valley of the dead
or maybe we're broken inside instead
now take me into your delicate arms
and make me feel again
I don't know where I'm going from or where I'm going
just make me feel again
make me feel again
make me feel again
somewhere between us something is forming comfort just won't fit in
you watch me fighting
dizzy and numbing
somehow you're my way out
so you took me into your hands that night
and you nourished my wounds
they healed
and I fear commitment
I tremble with fright
you said there's no reason
oh maybe we're lost in the valley of the dead
or maybe we're broken inside instead
now take me into your delicate arms
and make me feel again
I don't know where I'm going from or where I'm going
just make me feel again
make me feel again
make me feel again
somewhere between us
somewhere between us
somewhere between us
somewhere between us
now take me into your delicate arms
and make me feel again
I don't know where I'm going from or where I'm going
just make me feel again
make me feel again
make e feel again
Track Name: tuesday
You were talking to yourself
On a Tuesday it began to snow
I know cause I was watching
The snowflakes drift from the sky

To your shoulders, you didn't seem to
Notice but they weren't melting
That's your favourite kind of
Winter day

And all at once I fell for you
And all at once I saw you too
And I know that we'd be together
And I know that'd we'd be together

You were out buying groceries
And I forgot the milk
For my sisters birthday cake
I guess you could call it fate

That called us. You didn't think I had
Noticed that you looked up from your
Grocery list and I almost
Ran into you

But all at once I fell for you
And all at once I saw you too
And I know that we'd be together
And I know that'd we'd be together

I heard you bought a Toyota
Blue car I don't know the name of the
Nickname that you named it
This time.

So Tuesday made and an appearance
And you Moved with the weather
Leaves fell where the
gooses go

So I'll keep you on the bookshelf
For another story to tell
To my father
Lying in bed

But all at once I fell for you
And all at once I saw you too
And I know that we'd be together
And I know that'd we'd be together

Toast it up

and somehow
