Track Name: The Universe Exists in B Flat
A man one told me, the universe is sound
never sitting in one quite place, it's always spinning round
he said the sky it is beauty. that we were meant to see
it occupies the present space where we are meant to dream

so every once and a while, I think that we forget.
the days we are living now, will soon be gone and spent
I think we rarely listen, we like to talk much more,
about TV shows and politics, we later will regret

so every star bound sailor, and every astronaut.
the humming that the universe is calling on and off
with every city skyline, I hate to see the news, I much prefer those mountain lines, to cold hard pavements walks
Track Name: Lucid Dream
oh beautiful dream
what you please stay for a while
fear I'm beginning to awake
and I need to stay for a while
Track Name: Waltz
When I was just young boy, my daddy told me son,
best to keep your head straight, no need for anyone.
no girl or gal, or cigarette can tell you boy just when your spend,
but my oh my, how did she move

Lonesome girl, lonesome girl won’t you dance with me
you ain't got nowhere to go , I ain't got nowhere to be
Lonesome girl, lonesome girl tell me whats your name
don’t just sit their lonesome , oh won’t you waltz with me

ball room gowns and mural walls and blaring trumpeters,
smoking pipes like cherried guns with Shakespeare amateurs
masquerading thought by thought, less did she desire,
stowed away with rolling eyes , disguised by her attire

Lonesome girl, lonesome girl won’t you dance with me
you ain't got nowhere to go , I ain't got nowhere to be
Lonesome girl, lonesome girl tell me whats your name
don’t just sit their lonesome , oh won’t you waltz with me

went on up to get some air, we climbing on the roofs,
yelling at pedestrians, and howling at moon
when buzzer sound and gone to far and fuzz are on the way,
laugh it off and climb on down, and join the big parade

Lonesome girl, lonesome girl won’t you dance with me
you ain't got nowhere to go , I ain't got nowhere to be
Lonesome girl, lonesome girl tell me whats your name
don’t just sit their lonesome , oh won’t you waltz with me
Track Name: Long Live King Max
I know it's mornings just like this
You pick your brain apart to find your innocence
But it's too late you've gone too far
You're burning out just like a star
And in that light you'll find what you've been looking for

The chance to start again
Is one that's rarely given so cherish it
And make sure it's one you don't squander
Cause you don't know what lies on yonder
I that cacophonous cavern of life's own patterns

Sometimes it's hard to see where we're going
It's hard to believe this life is pre-destined
But if you're lucky you'll find your way
And as you're talking when you're old and grey
You'll realize you never would have had it any other way

Cause these are the days that shape our selves
These moments that define and make and break we'll tell
So if you're stumbling in the dark
Take all that pain and anguish in your heart
And know that it's important to you in part
Track Name: Turn Again
So In the country prison, there sits a lonely man
who through away his life at age 19
Defending little brother, he went and killed another
But no one saw the truth behind the crime

Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn , turn again
Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn to the Again

Now after such a sermon the priest he's kneeling down
praying to a god he don't believe
says father I am scared, for wishing I must go
but leave and learn the world, I need to know

Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn , turn again
Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn to the Again

Now Mickey he’s a boxer, who’s drawing shorter straws
so take a dive and leave to pay the bills
but pride it claim another, the bookie starts to wonder
if he’s rather stop a’breathing on the mat

Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn , turn again
Turn turn turn oh the wheel keeps on turning
turn turn turn to the Again
Track Name: Bruises
I keep trying
To make the best out of this
But I keep dying
Every time you plead the fifth
I just wish you'd let me in
So I could see that beautiful grin
You say you got too many bruises on you
Well that's okay because I've got all mine too

You are broken
More than I could ever know
You told me you were workin on
Patching yourself back up with glue
You say you're just trying to get through
All the days you have ahead of you
You say you got too many bruises on you
Well that's okay because I've got all mine too

I've seen you go through hell
Just to come back with a story to tell
But you brought back demons that
Invaded and conquered your whole being
I just want you to be the person
You were before you got hurt
You say you got too many bruises on you
Well that's okay because I've got all mine too

You cover up 
All the things that could be chalked up to bad luck
In the hopes that
Everyone will always see past
But I just plain refuse
To be blind to all of your past abuse
You say you got too many bruises on you
Well that's okay because I've got all mine too

We all
Go through trials that test our resolve
Life beats us down
Just to see if we can get up
You just can't give in
Everyone someday pays for their sins
You say you got too many bruises on you
Well that's okay because I've got all mine too
Track Name: The Wild & The Rumpus
So news man, news man , don’t tell me what to think
I got mind full of ideas and I don’t need god damn shrink
don't preach me bout the past, or how it used to me
were done with going your way, won’t you wait around and see

so back at my home, oh where I grew up
I didn’t need know the odds, we made my own damn luck
so I'm living and I'm learning and don't tell me its a lie
I'm too busy living, I'm never gonna die

from the wild and the rumpus that crash like wave and wall
away from all the intellects who don't know much at all
we stop the world a spinning, and give the poets pens
its time to tell a story now, lets rambling soon begin

so back at my home, oh where I grew up
I didn’t need know the odds, we made my own damn luck
so I'm living and I'm learning and don't tell me its a lie
I'm too busy living, I'm never gonna die

so up on this hill, I go and make my stand
I dont care people say , aint words that make the man
if it's one thing that I'm learning, your minds is only trial
filled with blood and vigor, while juries in denial

so back at my home, oh where I grew up
I didn’t need know the odds, we made my own damn luck
so I'm living and I'm learning and don't tell me its a lie
I'm too busy living, I'm never gonna die
Track Name: Where the Wild Things Were
where the wild things they were,
I shouldn’t say, I never heard,
im betting of saying I'm insane

and though the wild things we were,
we never talked, we never learned,
we never moved, the world stood still

hit the engine , raise the sail, man the helm and move, I'm coming home
hit the engine , raise the sail, man the helm and move, I'm coming home
Track Name: Chainz & Lefty
What are you still doing here?
