Track Name: We Are Safe
LYRICS

We are safe
Everybody's worrying about the world today
But we are safe
Even if we break it down it will be built back up again
'Cause that's the way
Everybody knows that energy can be created but not erased
And things will change
Just like the bottom of the ocean gets washed away everyday
But the sea remains

We are safe
Track Name: Everything In My Dreams
LYRICS

Life is nothing but a dream
I believe, the dreamer is everything in the dream
Who's dream am I?

I've found myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've lost myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've loved myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've fought myself a thousand times, in my dreams
And it's like a circle that never stops going 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round

Life is exactly what it seems
Tell me, how can anything be anything other than what it is?
We can dream

I'm gonna bleed with everything in my dreams
When I cut my enemies, in my sleep, in my
I've found myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've loved myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
And sometimes it makes me so dizzy that I feel like falling down
Falling down

Life is nothing but a dream
I believe, the dreamer is everything in the dream
Who's dream am I?

I've found myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've lost myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've loved myself a thousand times, in my dreams, in my
I've lost myself a thousand times, in my dreams
And it's like a circle that never stops going 'round and 'round
'Round and 'round
Track Name: Madeline
LYRICS

Madeline, run away from here
Get yourself out while you can
In this life, I've seen you die so many times
There's no more reason to cry

Madeline, you have nothing to fear
In living this life like it's the last
So say goodbye to the 'round and 'round
Of chasing your dreams into the ground

'Round and 'round, we go 'round and 'round
Chasing our dreams into the ground
'Round and 'round, we go 'round and 'round
Chasing our dreams into the ground
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Madeline, you're so awake and alive
You set the whole world on fire
Don't look back, you're safe in the stream
This life was nothing more than a dream to you

'Round and 'round, we go 'round and 'round
Chasing our dreams into the ground
'Round and 'round, we go 'round and 'round
Chasing our dreams into the ground
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Track Name: Move
LYRICS

All the days gone by
The sun is setting down
What if all the holes in the sky
Were heaven looking out?
Would it see a mother without a child
Or a king without a crown?
If there was a place where all your dreams came true
Would you go?

Would you move from where you are?
Or would you hide behind your scars?
Just like you do right now
Would you still be who you are?

On the other side of the world
The sun is rising now
If I could bring you next to me now
Some way, some how
Just like the moon pulls the tides
Without the heavens crashing down
Tell me, if there was such a place
Where all your dreams came true
Would you go?

Would you move from where you are?
Or would you hide behind your scars?
Just like you do right now
Would you still be who you are?

All the days gone by
The sun is setting down
Track Name: My Place
LYRICS

If we are the answers to the questions that we ask
Then tell me why I don't feel satisfied?
When everything we do feels like it's building up to something
Something may never come

I want to settle down
Now and forever
So tell me why I can't find my place

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself

If everything we are is everything we do
And everything we think and feel
What will happen when we leave this world behind
And we can no longer do?

I want to settle down
Now and forever
So tell me why I can't find my place

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
When the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself

I want to find my place

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
When the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
Track Name: The Bridge Is Broken
LYRICS

I want to settle down

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself

If everything we are is everything we do
And everything we think and feel
What will happen when we leave this world behind
And we can no longer do?

I want to settle down

So tell me why I can't find my place

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
When the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself

I want to find my place

The sugar melts in my mouth just like everybody else
But when the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
When the feeling goes away I don't want to be myself
Track Name: Slaves
LYRICS

The bridge is broken
And everything I've ever loved
Is stranded on the other side
I feel so far away from home

I see you standing there
And I'm caught within your perfect stare
And I am hanging on every breath you breathe

I want so bad to be free
But I am chained to the illusionary
Captivation that I've felt since my earliest day
I don't want to feel it any more
Won't you take it all away

But I see you standing there
And I'm caught within the wave
And I'm hanging on every breath you breathe
Track Name: The Mushroom Song
LYRICS

A wise man said
It doesn't matter if
We're caressed or we're whipped
We're all still slaves
And I'm so tired
I just want to go home
I just want to go home

A wise man said
It doesn't matter if
We're bound by blood or love
Or wrapped tight up in chains
We're all still slaves

I'm so tired
Oh won't you take me home
I'm so tired
Oh won't you take me home

A wise man said
It doesn't matter if
We're caressed or we're whipped
We're all still slaves

We're all still slaves
We're all still
Track Name: Toe The Line
LYRICS

Some people say that life can't exist without light
I say, maybe it can
You just wouldn't be able to see it

The sun's been gone for a while now
And I'll be glad when it comes
'Cause I'm so very alive right now
And I know that the sun is gonna come up one more time for me
One more time

Some people say that time can't exist without mind
But I say, maybe it can
But you would never know it

The sun's been gone for a while now
And I'll be glad when it comes
'Cause I'm so very alive right now
And I know that the sun is gonna come up one more time for me
One more time
One more time
One more time
Track Name: Refuge
LYRICS

Last night
I woke from a dream
Suddenly
In a stream

Now I see
So clearly
What it means
To always be changing

Tell me, did God make man?
Or did man make a God?
And where are we
In the scheme
Of all that be?

Blind reaction
From a muddled mind
Do we have a free will
Or are we just toeing the line?

Is the whole world
Our bodies and minds
Intelligent design?

Or are we
Slowly
Evolving
From monkeys
Climbing trees?

Tell me, did God make man?
Or did man make a God?
And where are we
In the scheme
Of all that be?

Blind reaction
From a muddled mind
Do we have a free will
Or are we just toeing the line?

Blind reaction
From a muddled mind
Do we have a free will
Or are we just toeing the line?

Toeing the line
Toe the line
