Track Name: Seconds Switch
think of something worthwhile
we'll come back to this

and i really really wanna home
i deserve a place to come and go
and i need you in my light
i need you in my life
before the seconds switch
and they're gone
and they died
and i have no place to hide
now i'm gonna get back home
now i'm gonna get back home

everybody's got a problem
and they don't know how to solve it
just. solve it.

think of something worthwhile, we'll come back to this
Track Name: Ethereal
i don't wanna be
caught up in this lie
i just want to see
everything that's right
i don't want to sing
but i have to in this life
let me do my thing
and i'll be there until the end
i'll be there until the end.

i don't have to think
that every messenger arrived
i've got many plans
on which i can further strive
i don't want to leave
but i have to live my life
i don't have a ring
but i'll be there until the end
i'll be there until the end.

it's all cool
it's all lucid, all the same
the highlights are the low-lights
it's so bright in here
so damn bright in here
ethereal you are my only ethereal
Track Name: Will We Ever Stop Fighting?
will we ever stop fighting

you break up my body and mind

will we ever stop fighting

shattered pieces fractured in time

will we ever stop fighting

take a pill and say good bye

will we ever stop fighting
Track Name: Nostalgia
when i was in my teens
i had snuck into my parents canteen
we drank eighty five proof whiskey
all of it resting quite uncomfortably
i think we'd gone too far
without a bar

when i was in my teens
i wanted to change the world around me
but it was way too hard
i had no ambition or a head start
but look at me now
I can't be found

when i was in my teens
i had snuck into my parents canteen
we drank eighty five proof whiskey
all of it resting quite uncomfortably
i think we'd gone too far
without a car

when i was in my teens
i wanted to change the world around me
but it was way too hard
i had no ambition or a head start
but look at me now
I can't be found
Track Name: Every Little Thing
every little thing that i thought i was x4
doesn't exist
in this life
everything in my mind is not right

i can't think good things about myself
Track Name: Own Heart
Pull me out of the bedroom
just put me at that door
now what do i do when it doesn't open
do i want it anyway see i don't know
just give me a sign, and i'll keep it in mind

i just want my own heart to be at peace

i
am
so
free

i just want my own heart
Track Name: With You In Mind
Now I know we don't always see eye to eye
but you gotta know that i'm just a guy
come here relax on my side
and please me with you in mind
and please me with you in mind

please me with you in mind

(Ooohs and ahs)

please me with you in mind
Track Name: Helicopter Pilot
going back and forth in time
anxiety takes, whats rightfully mine
if you could see through my eyes
you'd hate all circles of existing life

i'm just like a ghost to you
can you see my bones?
am i frail pale ghost?
do i exist in different forms?
i don't want to find out the truth
i'm too used to the norm

with each pull i take
i feel a distant calm
it's helping me forget
that i'm forgetting something', something'

can you see all my bones?
or am i just like a ghost?

"Where ever you are Mr. he-helicopter pilot. Come out of your hole. And you too George Gin cause you were in that helicopter pal. You were in that helicopter, and you're nothing but a CHAMELEON -- LEMON HEADED -- COWARD, TERRORIST PUSSY, and I'm after you buddy. You're going to pay for it. GOOD NIGHT!"

It's okay to be on my side.
