Track Name: Wanderer
Trying to find my way I
Ripped up my insides I
Found a map that led me
Straight to your heart.

It makes no sense to me
It makes no sense to me

Turn down that television
I see your eyes in mine
Down that radio station
I feel your hand in mine

It makes no sense to me
It makes no sense to me

It makes no sense to me
It makes no sense to me
Track Name: The System
Dragging our feet we forge ahead
Unsure of the outcome but its better than bein dead

Searching for doors to find they’re walls instead
We end up complacent and just go home to bed

We’re not alive
we follow the system

Not alive
We follow the system

Names and faces they tell us what to think
Placing blame and lying they show us how to be

Keep searching for truth to find it’s out of reach
We end up frustrated and just begin to sink

We’re not alive
We follow the system

Let’s move out of this rut
Track Name: Treehouse
There’s a fire raging in my body
It’s everything that I’m supposed to be
Instead we are hiding here together
Just my teddy bear and me

We just want a place of our own
We just want a place of our own

Somewhere deep within the forest
There’s a hideout just for me
Filled with everything that I’ll need
It’s my home in a tree

We just want a place of our own
We just want a place of our own

When I hide in the corner
The forest comes alive
We are running through the meadow
Just my mother and I

We just want a place of our own
We just want a place of our own

All We Are

As the dead head bobs through water
As the wheels turn ticking the clock
As the crow cries out for no one

This is how we are. This is how we are.

As a ruby under a cushion
As a kite tied to a tree
As boat without sails
This is how we are. This is how well are.

I searched the oceans looking for treasure
I climbed the mountains up to the sky
As a pilgrim I wandered and wandered
This is how we are, this is how we are

Is this all we are? Is this all we are?
Is this all we are? Is this all we are?
Track Name: Lost Time
When you cry
I calm you down
Your smiles got me bound
This is hard, I whisper
But your innocence keeps me here

Who could ever deny you?
Who could ever deny you?
But it happens all the time
Yeah it happens all the time

Violently you cry now
Lost in the sound
I want to save you
To go back there

Who could ever deny you?
Who could ever deny you?
But I happens all the time
Yeah it happens all the time

You are enough I tell you
Follow my love I’ll show you
You are enough I tell you
Follow my love I’ll show you

You are enough I tell you
Follow my love I’ll show you
You are enough I tell you
Follow my love I’ll show you
Track Name: All We Are
As the dead head bobs through water
As the wheels turn ticking the clock
As the crow cries out for no one

This is how we are. This is how we are.

As a ruby under a cushion
As a kite tied to a tree
As boat without sails
This is how we are. This is how well are.

I searched the oceans looking for treasure
I climbed the mountains up to the sky
As a pilgrim I wandered and wandered
This is how we are, this is how we are

Is this all we are? Is this all we are?
Is this all we are? Is this all we are?
