Track Name: Elephant Dub
*instrumental*
Track Name: W.K.S.
i should have realized
only way it makes sense
each day you live a lie
has it's own consequence
i can see it in your eyes
you've got something to say
i can see it in your shoulders
as your walking away
away
away
broken hearted,
lets, be, honest?

i can taste it on your tongue
which venom you'll spit first
i can watch it on from your lips
teling me im cursed
i can feel it in your hips
the small of your back
coming from the heart
the way you attack
attack
attack
broken hearted
lets, be honest?


the warmest hand
finds you in the night
the coldest words
like the edge of a knife
diggin myself out
buried under your lies
you lean down to kiss me
kiss me goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
broken hearted
I’m just gonna be honest
Track Name: Low Lifes & High Rollers
here's a thought
oh it keeps me up
everyone else was taught
I'm just making it up
easy to say
i'm learning my lesson
take time to experience
and less time confessing

and I can’t slow down

I don't need you
coming back again
like some kind
of old scorned publican
have to know
can't take it for granted
when its time to take a stand
with your feet firmly planted

and I can’t slow down

* spending my life
ducking the power holders
stuck between the
lowlifes and highrollers
life is a dream
until you hold it
get out from in-between
the lowlife's and high rollers

Have we grown
oh so comfortable
with our own
our own graceless fall
find yourself before
the man standin tall
will we soon admit
we may know nothing at all
nothing at all
nothing at all

nothing at all…
Track Name: Generous
You say you'd treat her right if you only knew
But that suspect behavior only for classic fools
Find out Three weeks later she left for Someone new,
well that there's my friend karma coming around back at you 

oh feels so good, that i just might
lose myself in her eyes for the rest of the night
you know for a fact that she is sick of your lies
she wants to dance and praise and feel alright

You know I love the way
that we
share our lives
So generously 

Laying next to her pure creativity
The words i’ve been search for they come to me so easily 
As our love steady growing like the roots of a tree
and we can fill this ocean like a tributary

*chorus*
*solo*
*hard ending*
you must learn to move
past the madness and sorrow
if you don’t my friend
you're gonna hurt tomorrow
Track Name: Ghosts & Names
He smokes and smolders
She smolders and smokes
While they dance amok
with tin hearts

A light bulb flickers
With a worn out fuse
But it reminds them of
The flash bulbs they used to use
Recalling months spent
On Italian shores
Showing all the rich men
What life is for

She finds faint rouge smears
And the smell of crushed pedals
He hits the nightstand
As he back pedals 
Nothing's the same 
and time won't relent
All the gold of Midas
Can't buy the time we spent


Now she dances slow
With ghosts and names
now she dances slow
Her broken heart knows
no shame
Track Name: Locals Only
*instumental*
Track Name: Counting
Doubt finds you fast when you're alone
Telling me to be no different
She's talking to me through the end of this telephone 
I'm telling her to just listen 

are you counting up 
or counting down, down, down
living your life with such precision
so tight, tight, tight, tightly wound
never see life is what your missing

You spend so much time thinking
about what people thinking
they wonder why you show no interest  like a rat in a maze 
caught In a race you’re never winning

are you counting up
or counting down down down
live your life with such precision
so tight, tight, tight, tightly wound
never see what your missing

the truth is to hard and painful
your youth is what you leave on the table
make up your mind
to live your life
or spend your days 
waiting in the back of the line

are you counting up 
or counting down, down, down
living your life with such precision
so tight, tight, tight, tightly wound
never see life is what your missing

its what your missing
Track Name: Up to No Good
You know Franklin
in all his wisdom
Never dreamed of
Drive Through activism
So Hard to to let things pass
made so appealing
Hard to see the glass
when you're pressed against the ceiling

Its always
could and not should
These are, hard times we living in.
Oh so Passive. Keep you Distracted.
They're up to no good.
Up to no good.

On a bed made of bone
in a solid gold home
with the disquieting thought
you'll die broke and alone
we hold our tongues
let the fire smolder
never carry a king
upon my shoulders

Silence dissenters sent away
camp
while the rich fill their coffins
like piggy banks

we are the pieces
gears of the machine
we are the scattered
at odds with our dreams
taking all we know
nothings adding up
it takes all we have
to keep from giving up
Track Name: Wake Up Slow
every morning i wake up to
sweet sunlight as it breaks thru
splashing on my bedroom wall
close my eyes i can’t find sleep
dreams of wandering aimlessly
searching for my puzzle piece
oh to spell my relief
would be such a release
as only you can

and i love the way you move
waking up slow
and i love the way you move
waking up slow

every morning i wake up to
bring me a little closer with you
and the clothes we’re pulling off
close my eyes find your lips
with my walking fingertips
searching for some morning bliss
oh and i confess that
i can be no less
than i am, in your arms

and i love the way you move
waking up slow
and i love the way you move
waking up slow

the first thing on my mind
the last thing i seek to find
i make continents move
if it puts one step closer, one step closer to

and i love the way you move
waking up slow
and i love the way you move
waking up slow
Track Name: Inhale
sinsemilla in my soul
tonight we follow where it goes
heart beat
pulsing low
get lost when we play
loose control

inhale, of the moment, hold it
exhale, never let go of it
inhale!

staring deep
emerald eyes
white clouds
on the rise
tell me son am I getting through
are you haunted by the boys in blue

inhale, of the moment hold it
exhale never let go of it
inhale!

as that smoke
curls off your lips
it never gets
any better than this
better than this
better than this
better than this
better than this
Track Name: One w/ it All
ell me are you angry
my daughters 
you should be
if you won’t fight won’t scream
well then i say, i say we’re losing
But I tell you this
now we’re coming back
with some brand
new idea’s
a new attack

if you want everything
you get nothing
you want nothing
then you find yourself
one with it all
one with it all

Do you want justice
now YELL with me
it comes from the spirit
and the positivity
listen close
there’s fire
laying ‘round for the stoking
get in touch with soul my son
go on get going

if you want everything
you get nothing
you want nothing
then you find yourself
one with it all
one with it all
Track Name: Evil Dub
*instrumental*
