Track Name: BRIGHTLIGHTS
When my attempts of not overthinking don't work
I ease my mind
Oh smoke
Burn thoughts with a corrupted mouth
Makes thin talk

Without further ado
Stress reliving
All your memories aside
All your memories aside
Carry on, break free
Come back open armed
Fall, then rise

Just a mild depression
Can do no harm
A little self loving
Will cause no hurt
Everything is fine
Everything is fine
Set your hopes high
Oh smoke

Without further ado
Stress reliving
All your memories aside
All your memories aside
Carry on, break free
Come back open armed
Fall, then rise

I'm wide awake I'm seeing dinosaurs
Floating in the air flowing through the park
Close your eyes and you could see
Colors changing over sea
Take a big breath just before you go
Take a big breath just before you go

Without further ado
Stress reliving
All your memories goodbye
All your memories goodbye
Carry on, break free
Come back open armed
Fall, then rise
Track Name: CHaos
You said that you're proud of me
And held my hands
What should I think about?
I'm rubbing my fingers
To feel the ghost of your touch
I want to be whoever you want me to be
All that will happen will happen in time

Since chaos entertains
No one should say a thing

Why are you here
Why have I stayed
What should I think about?
I'm rubbing my fingers
To feel the ghost of your touch
I want to be whoever you want me to be
All that will happen will happen in time

Since chaos entertains
No one should say a thing
Since chaos entertains
Track Name: Until The Next Time
Everything will be alright
I tell you so
I can't get you out of my mind
I don't want it though

Until the next time, then I'll be, I'll be a changed man,
maybe I will grow. Until the next time, then I'll be, I'll be better, I will

Forget the past,
try to cherish it,
some peace, at last
let the water flow under the bridge

Everything will be alright I tell you so
Everything will be alright I tell you so

Nothing really matters anymore,
And I hope you'll find some peace.
My mind has sat sail long ago,
and it's you I still miss

Until the next time, then I'll be, I'll be a changed man, maybe I will grow.
Until the next time, then I surely be I'll be better
I will


Forget the past,
try to cherish it,
some peace, at last
let the water flow under the bridge
Forget the past,
try to cherish it,
some peace, at last
let the water flow under the bridge
Track Name: Hesitant
Come back
A hesitant stare to the sun
My young adulthood hometown
Changed since I began
Molding and dissolving
everything I am


Anti matter keeps you whole
Brain in constant run
Treading water is a null
Losing ain't no fun
Far away, a different view
Come to me, all your jokes aside

It means much to me

Call home
Your parents love you so much
Caring for your health
Don't go out of touch
Sunsets are better
Once sun is down
Carry presents home
and yet be static, euphoric

Million dollars buy a dream
Please be patient Hun
Yesteryear is less and less
If the pistol points you run
Bless your heart, my bravest link
Cry for me, false apologies
Don't mean much to me

Come back
A hesitant stare to the sun
Come back
Come on
Come back, come back
Be static, euphoric


Grab The razor Peel the skin
feel a thing or two
Yesteryear is less and less
Don't fill voids with blue
A Story That Has Been Told Previously
By Many Foreign Faces
Can't Mean Much To Me
