Track Name: Golden Lights
Through the golden lights I'll await your time cause you're holding mine.
Can a simple lie let it all run dry, you're the reason why.
Through the golden lights I see your eyes look back at mine.
Through the golden lights, slowly let my heart fall it's alright.
Yeah it's alright, alright.

And even if I tried to stay we're only giving into everything we had to blame for letting us go. I'd give everything away just for a chance to look into your eyes through the golden lights.

Slow down, if you made a sound if you made a sound, could I hear it.
And if I don't, and I swear I won't cause when I stand in the light I hardly feel it.
Through the golden lights I see your eyes look back at mine, I try to hide all these feelings I feel. Imagination running wild. If it all was true, if it all was true and I never knew.

And even if I tried to stay we're only giving into everything we had to blame for letting us go. I'd give everything away just for a chance to look into your eyes through the golden lights.
Track Name: Young Svn
Young son said please don't worry I'm fine, if I don't make it through the mistake's mine, but I'll have the photographs.

The young son payed out all of his days to get to this place, and without receiving a raise, he manages to get by. And all the time in the back of his mind he wonders why

Young sun of mine you're wasting time, don't take this pressure on your own. You might be right but my advice don't wait for gold to take you home.

It's too much to take, how far can you go until you'll have to break. And how will we break cause it hurts to say that the end isn't far away.

Young sun get a hold of your light and light up the places where the darkness covers changes. And let your light shine down upon me.

Young sun of mine you're wasting time, don't take this pressure on your own. You might be right but my advice don't wait for gold to take you home.

And now it's bright through the night. Because of you because of you. Put up a fight to make it right he never knew he never knew.

Young sun of mine you're wasting time don't take this pressure on you're own you might be right but my advice don't wait for gold to take you home
Track Name: War
I can't sit still if you don't make me I just wanna run. Run from the life I've been living to get a better one. And I know I know, we'll start changing now.

Will I stay the same, will I stay the same.

Capable of destruction way beyond our greatest fears, a guilty conscious deters him from creating the tears. And he knows he knows he's better off without.

So then a different route was taken to channel his rage and metaphorically his life began to turn the page. And you wouldn't know, what he's all about

In a far out lonely place, a shadow disguised a face.
We look to understand, while he's holding out his hand.

"I just wanted to tell you, that I feel alright, it's the loneliness I like. And I wanted to tell you that I'll be okay, it's the reason I chose to stay."

An opportunity to piece back thoughts about what's the problem oh what's the problem now. And will i make it out. Oh we hope, oh we hope our heads on straight compared to what all the other people say. I think mine's okay.

"I just wanted to tell you, that I feel alright, it's the loneliness I like. And I wanted to tell you that I'll be okay, it's the reason I chose to stay."

I just wanted to tell you that you'll be alright doing anything you like and I wanted to tell you that you'll be okay and I hope you never change.

I just wanted to tell you that you'll be alright doing anything you like.
Track Name: Secret City
While I've been sleeping, dreaming alone. Stars light the city stars below. Another day of taking notes, where I go, I go. While you've been watching curiously you see an outer shell of me. Cause in a mind of separate beings, you might not agree.

I've been patiently waiting, been patiently waiting, been patiently waiting for my call. Oh you must be mistaken, your message has shaken me can you stop bracing for my fall. If you could have it all.

And if you knew me I'd be the same. Lost again in this mess we made.
And if you knew me I'd be the same. Lost again in this mess we made.

I've been patiently waiting, been patiently waiting, been patiently waiting for my call. Oh you must be mistaken, your message has shaken me can you stop bracing for my fall. If you could have it all.

(Message from T-Baby)
Track Name: LZY Me
All I want is a way to check that this pain is real. Lately I'm feeling fine but hope that that's how I feel. But I put it all off.
May I make up my mind if I change it, cause I change a lot. Seconds later I think I can face her, but I'm really not. Cause I put it all off.

And she knows I've been trying to keep cool and show her a better path, kick down walls in my mind just cause of the way she'd laugh. Well I put it all off off off. I think I'm better off without getting involved with her patience, stayed at home enough and told my mind until it all made sense. And I put it all off.

I know I know I seem upset again. Only I see you get upset when witnessing a lie. How can I make myself be truthful with the real you when I can't seem to find the truth to tell myself too. I guess I'll put this one off too.

And she knows I've been trying to keep cool and show her a better path, kick down walls in my mind just cause of the way she'd laugh. Well I put it all off off off. I think I'm better off without getting involved with her patience, stayed at home enough and told my mind until it all made sense. And I put it all off.
Track Name: Take Take Take
Well I play, pretend and dream at such an age that we will all be worriers. We can stand the test of time against our age, find a path to take for better days. We can fight to get ahead or just lay low, run across a map of hopes or take it slow, light a match to spark a fire and let it grow. If your heart knows what it wants then let it show.

Oh we know what need and we needed to find a better way for the bait to take, take, take, take, take, take. Walk alone if you're going, take a picture for showing I care enough for a life I can take, take, take, take, take, take.

Have a land to call your own without a name. Will it stand to see another day? Let it all become a state who's day parade lived once because it wouldn't shake.

Oh we know what need and we needed to find a better way for the bait to take, take, take, take, take, take. Walk alone if you're going, take a picture for showing I care enough for a life I can take, take, take, take, take, take.
