It’s been around since before your mommas due Now the sound is more than a golden view It’s in your church and where you pray It’s all through the day. Watching how, all the actors on tv Play it out, like it’s real just for me They say when to rock and when to roll It’s all in the show It’s all that we need; it’s all in the motion, the ocean. I know what you want; I see it in your eyes I know what it is Flowers and Lies See it now, it’s got a way to make you be Believe in how and that’s the way it’s gonna be The Law is in words you can’t spell They can send you to Hell. So understand what it is and what they say It’s in demand; it’s from the man so it’s ok You’ll do what your told to do It’s not up to you It’s all that we know, you see that it’s over. so over. It ain’t news to me, it’s written in the sky. So you want to believe, Flowers and Lies. ABC, NBC, SBS, CNN, BBC don’t you see They want you to believe. Watching how, all the actors on the street They play it out, to be just like Steve McQueen They say when to lock, when to load, Pretty maids in a row. It’s all that we need; it’s all in the motion, the ocean. I know what you want; I see it in your eyes I know what it is, you see that it’s over. so over. It ain’t news to me, it’s written in the sky. So don’t you believe, Flowers and Lies.

Institute 04:21
All of the questions, in the world Won’t get answers for my girl And so the reasons are for sage Live for the pleasures of the world That’s what it’s here for my girl Don’t you know it’s reign. I’ve seen a world devolve In solitude and vein Just salt, Jesus Christ again. You don’t know me Why you say you think you do You don’t know me I’ve seen the other side of you. So what is your story, oh do tell It’s not so different, beggars tell So are the memoirs of this time. Playing your cards close to your heart It’s purer in ways than you are Don’t let it go so far I feel we’re in a bowl With souls forever in pain Goodnight, we’ll meet again You don’t know me Why you say you think you do You don’t know me I’ve seen the other side of you.

Don’t wanna die, just want to change the world as I see it It makes me cry, don’t you know the way that you want it On this world it’s so lonely, I don’t know why Change the world, it’s so phoney, Could run away, you’re such a wild thing Don’t run away, turn around and sing I……. will climb the mountain I……. will climb the mountain I……. Don’t wanna cry, just want a world that can and will grow it I’m gonna sigh, see the lights on now, we’ll show it See the way it’s wrong we know it’s so fine But it’s so torn now, can’t sow it Could runaway, such a violent thing Don’t runaway, gotta make you sing I……. will climb the mountain I……. will climb the mountain I…….

In The Mist 04:43
Left remains of another time, It’s so haunting, I’ve resigned, That I need to follow too, Another road is what I’ll do Now and then it reappears, There’s no solution, only tears. And the days have become so long, Since I found I was so wrong. One would know the dangers involved, Yet you say you wanna be there. So I wanna know why you do this, Coz I don’t wanna be there. Now don’t you say, Don’t do it I want to say, Just choose it Let’s rock and roll it babe. The Winter months bring on the cold, Not the body, but the soul. Alone is one with no desire, Find the motive in the fire. Counting mountains on the shore, Poster name, its all a bore. And we say that it’s alright, And the boys put out tonight. One would know the dangers involved, Yet you say you wanna be there. So I wanna know why you do this, Coz I don’t wanna be there. Now don’t you say, Don’t do it I want to say, Just choose it Let’s rock and roll it babe.

I feel broken; I’m still chokin’, but we’re not to blame. That’s forsaken, our love makin’, hold the world to shame. Look you’re walkin’, and you’re talkin’, like you know the way So you think you’ve got this freedom, you can’t see the cage. Now there’s, no choice, You can’t just run and hide It’s all a Lie ei ei ei… So we, fight it, But we must never hide, That it’s a lie ei ei ei… There’ll be problems, lots of Goblins, post regards you may. We’re still waiting; it’s escalating, all the worlds a stage. Keep your badge on or they’ll lean on, all your things of play. Thank you master, you’re my Pastor, have we gone insane.

Blown Away 05:44
Don’t know what to say or do, Lights went out but I noticed you, Were gonna leave me, you should a seen me I lay in bed and I dreamed away, What went down, then I heard ya say, I’m gonna leave ya, I don’t wanna to see ya So I walked in the dark to save the light, Coz I never would a found ya in the light And my thoughts are so loud, they’re in the way I was really blown away, that’s what you do to me And to feel this way I knew before it’s truth to me Ah ah ah…ah ah, ah Ah ah ah… ah ah… In roads I gotta new phone, electric bone with telephone jive And so I got new clothes, show the folks that I’m still alive That’s right Here it comes like a tidal wave, it’s another way to sit back and lie So when you run, gotta hide away, gotta find a new place to survive Now I’ve found it’s a world away Got it on, but it’s hard to say I’m gonna miss ya, I really wanna kiss ya. Gotta want, gotta play the game Nothin’ on, feel I’m going insane It came to meet ya, the main feature. So I walked in the dark to save the light, Coz I never would a found ya in the light And my thoughts are so loud, they’re in the way I was really blown away, that’s what you do to me And to feel this way I knew before it’s truth to me Ah ah ah…ah ah, ah Ah ah ah… ah ah… Hey ho if ya wanna know, there’s a radio show That’s playin’ on drive (Sha la la la la la) And so for the first time, we hear the song and then we sigh… Ahhhhhh. So it hits like a hurricane, it’s a frightening thing to survive I want it easy let’s sell the world and then get the hell on with the ride So come on baby let’s SHOUT… I said SHOUT, Shout it loud Yeah I said SHOUT, come on SHOUT… SHOUT it out loud.

Who Decides 04:46
You don’t want it, it’s so clear I am waiting now Still there’s something, I can feel it You’re deciding how There’s no hope for those whom wait Ah, ah ah In the night we makes mistakes And who’s deciding now You decided all the changes And I went all the way Though we never meant to fake it And that is all we say There is one thing I should hear I just don’t know how You can say it and not feel it You’re conspiring now There are no thoughts, I have to wait Ah, ah, ah Where the light is, comes the day So who’s deciding now You decided all the changes And I went all the way Though we never meant to fake it And that is all we say Who decided all the changes So you went all the way Though we never meant to take it And that is all the pain

It’s like Broadway scenes, Unreal it seems to me Pictures of a thousand words, that gleam, And hides the unseen Like Picasso hiding, in a local drive-in, We can’t outgrow the world The Popes insulting, It’s rigged, not faulty. It’s OK to wake up, Coz you’ve been so far away It’s OK to wake up Coz that’s who you are today, so far away. Just like the Broadway dreams, So real they seem to me I like the poster girls, They seem to cover my needs. Like Muammar Gaddafi, There’s no time to be laughing They sold the world a TV show. A sole prediction, With a final conviction It’s OK to wake up, Coz you’ve been so far away It’s OK to wake up Coz that’s who you are today, so far away.

So warm, safe and dry I wish that you could see me Things have changed in time You know it hasn't been easy We never said goodbye So all the pain is near me All the pain is near me It all takes a while For wounds that are healing Sometimes it really hurts You can't stop believing There's a long way to go But it fades away It fades away Not Tonight Josephine Things in my mind that I've seen Would you believe when I say The world is changing day by day Not Tonight Josephine All the evil that I've seen Changed my mind about the way that I should be Let's all wave goodbye It's time for us to go now We'd never say we cry Things will move so slow now One day at a time Is all we could do All we could do Not Tonight Josephine Things in my mind that I've seen Would you believe when I say The world is changing day by day Not Tonight Josephine All the evil that I've seen Changed my mind about the way that I should be

It's been such a long time getting this to fruition, but we are excited to be able to now present it in it's intended state.

All 9 songs in their conceptualized form and running order, but we would also be thrilled if you were to even just grab a song or two that caught your ear!
