Track Name: The Up
Leave it up to the other side
Leave us up its gonna be alright its gonna be alright
Strike it up light it up take it up with the managment its not my shift
A break in the argument will give us time to keep up
and roll with it
lets roll with it

All throughout the year we'll see them here trying to fight the world their breathing in
But why spend all your time inside your pride lets relax and get it right

Midnight showcase on the up and the ups gonna break it down
If you trust the voice always talking in your ear you'll never recognize the sound of the truth tryin to speak to you
Show me an opened minded man with a gun or a sign in their hand and I'll show you why were fucked
Track Name: The Way That I Found You
I saw you walking like you had someone where to be

But we both know you just walk to get where you should not go

The streets are bending lights along your little footprints, lead the way

I'll follow you across to catch the day

I wonder when's the right time to call your name?



Talk the way that you used to

The way that I found you

The way that I loved

Theres not better time to say

What you were was so dangerous

I miss that painlessness

You're such a stranger now



Wasted hours spent on taking on your stupid problems

It's a shame you never bothered to read me past my name

Tied up, in the webs in the sewed

Tangled, as if I'd never know the worst of all your voices

That you never cared to show

You told me to play a song for you just remember how this goes



Talk the way that you used to

The way that I found you

The way that I loved

Theres not better time to say

What you were was so dangerous

I miss that painlessness

You're such a stranger now





I saw you walking down



I wish I said hello

I wish I'd let you know how much I need you

You know it's true

Please take me home

Not the place just the comfort that I've come to know

Please take me home

Why stay alone
Track Name: Spacefunk
She's gonna find you
No matter where you try to hide
She's got an old scarecrow
It's keepin' out the younger kind
No matter how you try
Try so hard to run away but you never start
No you'll never even leave

You won't believe what's happenin
"It's happenin", she said
It's hard to see what's happenin
It's happenin all the time
You won't believe what's happenin
"It's happenin", she said
It's hard to see what's happenin
When you stand so far away

Feathers of romance
Falling from a tired wing
Leaving behind all
The songs we would never sing
Track Name: Life's Been Holding Strong
Out and around and inside the world

Trying to find all of my luck

My loves run a ground; is it that time?

Don't you think I would have handled all of you

Better yet you tell me what I'm supposed to do



Take a look around and tell me I was wrong

With all that I try to be the trying takes too long

The road sign says stop but my heart says move on

Life's been holding strong all along



Never on time hard times will show

Shaking my mind

Right when they should the lights forget to glow

Without a sign

Maybe patience never really was my friend

Virtues never seemed to show their face again

Tied tight heartstrings inside

"Play me a new song"

You say "Believe me I've tried but kids these days don't let the music collide with their ears.

Can you hear it now?"
Track Name: Sleep Driving
I gotta watch the road, taking the turnpike down

1 in the morning now, yellow blurry lights

I gotta keep my eyes open for one more mile

Keeping the speed down low but I can’t help myself

I can’t help myself



I gotta find some time chasing a Tuesday night

Break lights keeping me off, red shines off my eyes

I can hear the sound of Miles Davis play

Blue on the radio and something goes my way


To be everywhere at once

Awake taking on the world

I’ll stay if you stay with me

Or I’ll fall asleep in your memory



Taking your broken steps over the highway flood

Hoping that things go well, I know that they should

It’s costing me all night to believe in what I see

A step aside from the concrete to the take it seriously



To be everywhere at once

Awake taking on the world

I’ll stay if you wait with me

Or I’ll fall asleep in your memory



Drive over water just to stare at the sign

Home grown and raised on the garden state side

It becomes clear to me that we’ve always had time to waste



This time I wont make it home

But you’ve been so good to me

It turns out I’m better alone



I gotta watch the road, taking the turnpike down

2 in the morning now
