Track Name: Strange Daze
1 - strange daze
chorus:
I'm way too high (too high too high)
To be feeling this dry and low
I'm way too tired, I've tried
I'm fired up and ready to roll
Let’s go

Through strange daze, peculiar ways,
I'm just tryin' to make the best out of these phases
Strangers playing unusual games,
I'm just tryin' to survive between their folded pages

chorus

Through brave waves and the thoughts that have strayed
I'm just tryin' to make the most out of displacing
In a wave of pavement
To be sway or be betrayed
I'm just tryin' to stay alive
In a sea of plastic graces
Where a smile appears at a point
'Cause in life it’s the perfect decoy
To be the plot
The first on top
'Cause to be tamed
To not beat stop,
This portrays an array of thought inside of me
Like chemistry
In the silence of the night I'm caught up

chorus

To simplify this educated mind of mimes
Occupied by all this time
Where consciousness is just a comrade of mine
To simplify the sound,
To entertain the science through sentences
Where I cannot sleep
Without the clouds beneath my feet

chorus

The need to feel this high

The need to feel this
I cannot sleep at night

Don’t be paranoid
Not to amplify the sounds of a night

Fired up and ready to go
Don’t be paranoid
When the going gets weird,
Then I must be the one that’s out of here
Track Name: Mus-i-c
2 - Mus-i-c

The way you look this evening
Has got my mind not quite right
You're way too fine
It’s like staring straight towards the sunlight
Like the stars you shine so bright
You wake and disappear
Then I shake
Shiver
Towards you
As the time holds still
The mold
Is the melody for our remedy?

Strangers look stranger
When they adore your way
In observation, yeah it's peculiar to picture the pose they place you in

chorus:
You’re the muse to my music
You’re the only melody I hear
With your heart I could lose it
But losing you's the only thing I fear

You’re the girl that all the girls relate to
It's not that they hate you
It’s just that their boy he wants to date you
It must be hard to hold such a strong face
While you ride the trains or them long subways

Weirdoes look weirder as they fancy your way
Through calculations
Yeah it’s unusual to picture the place they pose you in

chorus

To keep you in my mind (I take a photograph)
I just close my eyes and the photographs come falling, falling down

(Losing you's the only thing I fear)

chorus

(You’re the muse I see

You’re the muse)

You're the mus-i-c

To keep you in my mind (I take a photograph)
I just close my eyes (such a lyrical photograph) and the photographs come falling, falling down
Track Name: Fancy Free Lovin' Kind
3 - Fancy Free Lovin' Kind

To fancy free and lovin' kinds
It's you and I for every night
Outside the bed is the pillows frame
Each pillowcase, it’s all the rave
And in the night sky I speak your name
Staring through the room
I wonder if you see the same moon
Lately, across the world
Could I ever keep you girl?

chorus:
We got that fancy free lovin' kind
You rock that body
Make me blow my mind
Back to that fancy free lovin' kind
Make you remember why you're mine

This melody was meant to be
Before you got it for a simple fee
I hold you close your clothes fall down on me
I fold my arms
You’re open, I see
Outside the sounds of the city night
To measure a man within a memory
I comfort times as comfort's my drug
It’s cumbersome
And getting old

chorus
I tell you,
To this place unknown
It's reality shown
And I know that and I've grown in fact, babe
But if all these footsteps equal nothing but stress
When I wake up I wish you where the one around me
I could draw every curve of your body
If you want that
If you need
I will remember every reason for you
Leaving me
Unraveling me...

You make a mess out of this man I am
Persuaded by a patient's guide of hymns
This felony you're never meant to see
I rock you close
The picture fades
Outside the praise of the city lights
Silence hits after the lightning strikes
The sky is full as the weakness recollects
Let’s go and dance
Let’s leave this place there
Let’s leave this place here

chorus

Let’s play the game of he say she say
Across the room
Track Name: Compass
4 - Compass

I'm sitting on the edge of the earth with my feet in the sea and my body in the ocean
I'm feeling heavy underneath sitting on another level lifted by the whole thing
Now I see you got a broken soul
How'm I suppose to fix it?
It's been that way from the start
Now you can see my ignorance

chorus:
I don't wanna lose you now
I don't wanna say goodbye
Baby, give me one more chance
At least wont you let me try?
I never thought I'd see the day
That I'd watch you slip away
I don't wanna have to say please stay
But i will say it
Please stay
I say
I said it
You give me life
Give me life
Forgive me

This compass lead me straight to you

I'm standing on the corner of the bridge with my spirit in the clouds and my mind it is floating
I'm screaming out loud to the cars and the crowd but they can't hear the whole thing
See you see I got a wounded heart
Then go ahead and mend it
It's been that way from the start
Now you can see my innocence

But, baby, with your squinted eyes and your feathered wings
It's not a surprise that I'm holding on to everything

chorus

I give you everything
You could steal this beating heart
The way I feel
Is the way I feel
Is the way I been feeling

If you left me
If you went away
How could I make you see?
How could I make you stay?
Please stay
Please stay

chorus
Please stay
I say
I said it
Track Name: Do You Believe?
5 - Do you believe?

Do you believe it's meant to be?
This reality we're dealing in now
And the beauty that we speak
Its exponential knowledge unknown

Hey,
Go be who you're meant you be yah
I ain't standing in your way
I got my own discretion on prescriptions
That addiction just masked the pain
I got to stop reaching for the outside
Got to keep it focused, keep it humble with pride
The same tactics towards the self I feel
Friends family and love is all that's real
The rest is intended to satisfy my mind

chorus:
Do you believe it's meant to be?
Living such a clear life and now I can breathe
Do you believe in mystery?
Where beauty is all I see around me
Do you believe it's meant to be?
Living such a clear life and now I can breathe
Do you believe in history?
Where beauty is all I see around me

If i don't need nothing to make me feel that way
Now we got back to basics
Got it out my head
Through a crowd of faces
Where I used to feel like they were confronting me
Now i feel like they got my back but my head's still cloudy
When the pills ain't sinking in
I can never sleep therefore I go for the pen
Kush rolled up, with my whisky and sins
This type of therapy makes no sense to me now
If it never satisfied these times

chorus
If I don't need nothing to make me
Feel that way
Feel that?

Feel that way...
Out of all the things that satisfy my mind

If it's intended to satisfy my mind, then satisfy it

Happiness
Let's try
This is just a guess but I
Feel that life's filled with pride
With the fight to inspire
To be greater
To be faster
To be better
To be you
To surrender to the fight at the end of the night
To break the other side to satisfy my mind

chorus
If I don't need nothing to make me feel that way
