Track Name: Sing So High
Just want to sing so high
so I can see
the curve of the earth
so I can see what one life, is worth
tell all of the boys, all of the girls
it'll be all right, with the world

All of our creations (quickly crumble down)
and all of our sensations (tell us right from wrong)
and all of our relations, love em' before they're gone

Just want to sing so high
so i see
how the world really works
help them out, with all of their woes
and understand, the light you see at the end
its just one life, as it begins once again

All of our creations (quickly crumble down)
and all of our sensations (tell us right from wrong)
and all of our relations, love em' before they're gone

I want to sing so high,
but if I fall I know I'll be, caught it time
keep on singing to the sky
keep on singing to the sky
Track Name: Run
Just broke out of jail and i'm
running with my tail
between my legs
head to rolling hills but I don't see a difference hiding will make

Because whatever you do
just to get you through
will catch up to you

I don't have no time to call no one
blistering my feet out in the sun
I won't get nowhere if they put me in that chair
so I'll take my chances on the run

Running looking back
its so easy to distort the facts
of all I've done
easy enough to see well nothings free you gotta pay the rent

Because whatever you do
just to get you through
will catch up to you

I don't have no cash for stable fee's
take my horse just oh spare my knee's
forever scared of stairs if I'm broken in a chair
running is the only thing for me
oh I'm running!

Because whatever you do
just to get you through
will catch up to you
Track Name: You've Changed
Said you wouldn’t, wouldn’t ever,
Do those things
Curiosity once again
Led you astray
You never let it, never let it, never let it,
Get you down
But you’ve changed and don’t want me around
Oh you’ve changed
Hanging round, never leave
Right on display
Flaunted it, all around,
Have you no shame?
You never let it, never let it, never let it
Get you down
But you’ve changed
Don’t want me around.

Oh you’ve changed, yes its true
And you never once put me in front of you
You’ve changed and it shows
Made sure everyone knows that
You’ve changed…
Track Name: Searching for Substance
You can’t be afraid, living life
Of a fate you didn’t earn
And the only substance in your head
Is what you put into it first
Maybe there’s some hidden, pleasure
Lying right under my nose

I, need, to find it before I go
I, try, to reach the unattainable

When you’ve learned all your lessons
Is it finally time to relax?
Drink wine til your teeth have stains,
And skip out on the final act
Maybe there’s some hidden, pleasure
Lying right under my nose

I, need, to find it before I go
I, try, to reach the unattainable
