Track Name: Lions, Eradicate! Alligators, Halt!
Every day it gets closer
But I can't wait till this is over
This anticipation's killing me
But I don't regret what I need

I stare into the summer skies
And realize it's worth those eyes
Like dandelions in the breeze
I can't wait till they whisper to me

And I don't care
If there's lightning crashing down
Nothing will ruin this, this moment

And I'll take flight
Navigate across the world
So I can finally just see you

Here we are - it's one year later
it feels like the day we met here
I still don't care what they think because
You're all that matters to me

This future's so uncertain
Who cares? That's not important
Our caliber of fortitude
Is more than enough to get us through

(I love you, I love you. 'Til the end of time. I love you, I love you. From now until forever.)
Track Name: Breathe
Breathe in, breathe out.
There's nothing holding you back now.
Breathe in so deep.
Let all those troubles flow from beneath.

This may be difficult for now,
but it will only make you stronger.
You may ask me, "Just how?"
Just wait a little bit longer.
As you sit there starin',
asking what should I know?
With sun right there glarin',
stand up, smile and go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Breathe in, breathe out, there's nothing holding you back now.
Breathe in so deep, let all those troubles flow from
beneath your skin, let the euphoria in.
Only you can shine so bright! So bright, so bright. So...

..You think of what your missing.
You're missing nothing at all!
Please just sit there, listen.
There's really nothing that can make you fall.
Another day just passed by,
don't let me see that frown.
And when they ask you, "Why?"
Don't let them bring you down, oh, no! No! No! No! No!

Breathe in, breathe out, there's nothing holding you back now.
Breathe in so deep, let all those troubles flow from
beneath your skin, let the euphoria in.
Only you can shine so bright! So bright, so bright. So...

<Solo>

Only you can shine so bright! So bright, so bright.
Track Name: This Voyage
On this vessel we call our Odyssey
Don’t forget that, don’t forget that you’ll always be here with me
Through those whirlpools and other run-down ships
On my radar you’ll always be the only active blip

Across the hydrographic we’ll find drifters here and there
We’ll pick them up, party it up, and help them without a care
The grief of goodbyes will only be short-term
Cuz there’ll be more new friends out there
And that I can confirm! I can confirm...

So please don’t drift away
No, please don’t drift away

This voyage is a lifetime where you and I just kill time
And make it the absolutely best
Better than the rest of everyone out on this sea
It’s perfect that it’s only you and me

On this course that we call our own journey
There will be some, there will be some rough waters in the sea
They will breeze by, just listen to my voice
Don’t be scared, it’s all over, now we can rejoice!

We can party every second and have the best of times
Living to the max, damn it’s so divine
With no worries and no need for a cure
There will be no more sorrow
And that I can assure! I can assure

So please don’t drift away
No, please don’t drift away

I see you walking, please step up: start talking
And take my hand
We’ll get through anything that’s out there
Let’s take a stand!
Track Name: Our Eyes
When the stars align in our eyes
I could never look away
All around us fireflies in this sacred place
And I know that I could always trust you
And I know you'd never, let me down

Tonight might be our last chance
To have the time of our lives
So don't live this down

Back and forth we sway through the night
Right under the moon
Every glance a perfect sight
This midnight of June
And I hope you'd never leave this or me
And I hope you'd never, let me down

Tonight might be our last chance
To have the time of our lives
So don't live this down

And I hope you could always trust me
And I know you would never let me down
Track Name: I'll Replace You [Cover]
I don’t know, I don’t know just what to do
But I think, but I think I’m eying you
And I think that you think I think you’re easy
Yes, I do.

Maybe we, maybe we could take a turn
Grab a match, light a fire, let’s watch this burn
We could be you and me:
Something un-special

I don’t think I like, I don’t like your attitude
The way you sound so rude
And I don’t want to feel I’m trapped in a minefield again
I’ve lost another friend
I’ll replace you, soon

Who are you, who are you, are you to judge?
Who am I, who am I to hold a grudge?
I did this whole thing to myself
Don’t you know?

None to point the finger at, to blame
I’ll just let this dark lust rot away
Atrophied, it’s arrived, it is an awful disgrace

I don’t think you’re worth half of what I spent on you
I hope I hurt you, too
And I don’t think I’ll heal, I need something real again
I lost another friend
I’ll replace you, soon

I’ll replace you.
Track Name: Coffee
I woke up this morning, and had myself some coffee.
I went to class today, and had myself some coffee.

When I need a pick-me-up, I say 'Hey' and get me some coffee.
Then I go to the coffee shop, and say
'Hey, will you put that stuff in my cup, sugar in and stir it up, sweet delicious in my gut.'

It's coffee.
Track Name: Artist and the Ambulance [Cover]
Late night, brakes lock, hear the tires squeal
Red light, can't stop so I spin the wheel
My world goes black before I feel an angel lift me up
And I open bloodshot eyes into fluorescent white
They flip the siren, hit the lights, close the doors and I am gone

Now I lay here owing my life to a stranger
And I realize that empty words are not enough
I'm left here with the question of just
What have I to show except the promises I never kept?
I lie here shaking on this bed, under the weight of my regrets

[Chorus:]
I hope that I will never let you down
I know that this can be more than just flashing lights and sound

Look around and you'll see that at times it feels like no one really cares
It gets me down but I'm still gonna try to do what's right, I know that there's
A difference between sleight of hand, and giving everything you have
There's a line drawn in the sand, I'm working up the will to cross it and

[Chorus]

Rhetoric can't raise the dead
I'm sick of always talking when there's no change
Rhetoric can't raise the dead
I'm sick of empty words, let's lead and not follow

Late night, brakes lock, hear the tires squeal
Red light, can't stop so I spin the wheel
My world goes black before I feel an angel steal me from the
Greedy jaws of death and chance, and pull me in with steady hands
They've given me a second chance, the artist in the ambulance

[Chorus]

Can we pick you off the ground, more than flashing lights and sound
Track Name: Flavor Ice [Cover]
It was a warm summer day, Watching TV with a flavor ice melting in my hand, Watching Endless Summer fifty times or more, With my girlfriend and the band. We walked down the beach to watch the sun come up. Drinking a coke she let out a burp, So I refilled her cup. It's 3am, all I hear is my air conditioning, Getting bored I feel so lame. I'll go piss in her coffee cup again. She said she's coming back, But I know that she's never coming back again.
Track Name: S.T.E.W.
And I don't want you to let me go.

I never wanted to let you go,
but now it's over and you should know
that I am all you ever wanted
and now you want some more.

From A to Z you were just not for me.
Get close to my body and you will see that
there's more to this than just physically.

It's more than your conscious can take.
You say you're real, but you're really just fake;
With a lack of love and a tongue for lust.
I'm standing here in a cloud of your dust,
wondering who I can trust.

Just leave.
