Track Name: Brief Moments
shapes without form
run through the storm
tumbling down

gestures without motion
caught in the commotion
fidget and frown

shades without color
pulled by a hauler
in the deep to drown

brief moments of eternity

terminate the torment (end end it end end it end)
jagged fear in the atmosphere (jagged fear , atmosphere)


bring torrents of laughter (give give me give give me give)
avoid surfeit, jaded defeat (too much, too much)

can’t it be simpler (easy simple easy simple easy)
strike with a bang, not a whimper (bang bang bang bang bang bang)

smells without odor
there is no ardor
still tumbling down

touch without contact
has greater impact
still fidget and frown

words lack pronunciation
in the anticipation
I will drown

brief moments of eternity

come and end it
give me the answer
if you must go on pretend
just tell me

why there are never blue skies
to brighten up my day
why cant i be on cloud 9
and in the fog i must stay

thunder and lightning are the warning
after they appear, the sky will be clear
Track Name: Sublime
wanted to escape the grievance
that is when i saw the entrance
in wonderland like alice
praying that you intend no malice
and it felt so sublime
an utopian paradigm

it can be found
it's lurking around

everywhere at once
nowhere at all
all at the same time

feeling mad as the hatter
all around i was splattered
becoming ambivalent
but still sure that i must withstand
cause even though it feels like paradise
is it wise, give me advice, is it sacrifice

in eden the lost maiden
in never never neverland
all of this was planned
so are my allusions clearing it up
or creating confusion

i don't ever wanna escape
i don't ever wanna leave
i don't ever wanna flee
so am i so naive
it is so mysterious
it is so eclectic
even if it turns to be ferocious
in my mind it will stay idyllic

everywhere at once
nowhere at all
all at the same time
you got me enthralled
Track Name: In The Groove
We’re about to do something unusual
Enjoy yourselves and
GET FUNKY
It gets you in the groove
You start to move
Don’t you disapprove just
GET FUNKY
I’m giving you the cues to bring your dancing shoes
And get loose and
GET FUNKY

It’s just a little change
Why do you find it so strange
So what
Don’t be stuck in a rut

CHORUS
I already told you what will happen
It's something you thought you'd never hear
Don't you forget pay more attention
cause to rules I don't adhere
and under no circumstance don't mix it with compromise
and be the one
who our drive decries

There is never just one side
Hidden things emerge
They shouldn’t be denied
Some you win and some you purge

Shhh
It’s a secret
It’s forbidden
But we do it anyway
Cause it feels so good
CHORUS
Track Name: Were You Right
Just an ordinary Sunday
Got nothing on my mind

Just staring out my window
It is pouring outside

The raindrops are racing
I bet on the left one to win

And your empty promises
Filled me from within
Be an optimist
Look on the bright side
Put your pink glasses on
And swallow your pride
Is the glass half full
Is it half empty
Should I just brake it
Cause ignorance is safety

CHORUS
Oooh all of his shirts were my best dresses
And now I’m left with nothing else to wear

My heart is like a circus
At the stilts and freaks and clowns
All you stare

And I try to perfect my stunt acts
And release into the wild the caged despair


But it’s so hard cause everybody'’s looking at me
Oooohh
Did you cry
When you were brought
Into this world
Were you right? (to do so)

Be an optimist
Look on the bright side
Put your pink glasses on
And swallow your pride

Ubiquitous shadow
Hides the slingshot
But it misses and turns around
And hits me like a boomerang
