Track Name: Shooting the Moon
No one knows what you’re talking about,
I see your lips move but nothing leaves your mouth
And no you don’t need to scream and shout
It don’t matter to me because we’re already on the outs

I’m gonna take it another way,
Get down the road and try to seize the day
In the long run it won’t matter anyways,
Because this place is getting hotter every single day

Yeah, that’s how it goes, when you’re shooting the moon
That’s how it goes when you’re shooting the moon
Shooting the moon
That’s how it goes when you’re shooting the moon

Once you know it then it’s easier when you’re losing your mind
That I know that I know that I know
And once you lose it, it’s easier to be open and kind

Now I know, now I know, yes I know, now I know
I can see the good and bad in our souls
Yes it is a mutual shame
It is something for us that’s the same.

Yeah, that’s how it goes, when you’re shooting the moon
That’s how it goes when you’re shooting the moon
Shooting the moon
That’s how it goes when you’re shooting the moon
Track Name: Go California
Oh my love yeah oh my love,
We’re gonna back up our bags and hop another train
Another day another place,
Another time for us to get away

We’re gonna go to California with no matters on our mind
Going to California with nothing to lose or find

Oh my God yeah oh my God,
What a difference it makes just a change of pace
On and on yeah on and on
Trying not to miss thing, not to win the race

We’re gonna go to California with no matters on our mind
Going to California with nothing to lose or find

California

Go to California, California
Track Name: A Dream within a Dream
And like a dream I’m living, I’m with you all of the time
There’s no more need for words to be spoken I see it all in your eyes
From a sleep that can’t be woken, frozen in both space and time
It’s so surreal the things that I’m feeling
It makes me question what is real and what’s just in my mind

The walls they can’t be broken, but surely you can blur all the lines
Between the real and fantastic, between the norm and divine
All the people who’ve never experienced, a sudden change of the mind
Accepting everything they hear, expecting to live all their fears
Always running from their fears, chasing them through all their years
Track Name: Myrrh Surfer
Yeah when you brought it up,
You had no idea what it would mean
You had no idea how it would seem no
All you do is what you’re told
All you know is what you’re sold

And now you’ve spoken up
And it’s clear you’ve got a fucked up dream
Some would dare to even call it obscene
Keep on preaching to the choir,
Keep on greasing the machine, ah yeah

Yeah no one knows, where we will go
Everyone is surfing on or drowning in the Sea of Myrrh
Yeah no one knows, where we will go
Everyone is surfing on or drowning in the Sea of Myrrh

Sometimes it seems we’re stuck, in a rut
We’re all human and we want to believe
That there is something greater then we can see, yeah
It’s natural to wonder when you hear the crack of the thunder

Yeah it can fuck you up
Thinking the visions that you’ve seen are supreme
Infecting others like a disease
Cause everybody dreams, just like everybody screams oh yeah

Yeah no one knows, where we will go
Everyone is surfing on or drowning in the Sea of Myrrh
Yeah no one knows, where we will go
Everyone is surfing on or drowning in the Sea of Myrrh
Track Name: Borrowed Time
When I woke up in the morning
It was just another day
I found and I took what I needed
Just to take the pain away

Why should I wait till tomorrow?
I’m living on time that’s borrowed
No end to the depths of sorrow
When you’re living on time that’s borrowed

It never should have happened
But it did and now I’m stuck in my own head
Oh no no, it should have never happened
But it did and now it’ll haunt me until I’m dead

Why should I wait till tomorrow?
I’m living on time that’s borrowed
No end to the depths of sorrow
When you’re living on time that’s borrowed
Track Name: Beyond Eternity
Before the curtain falls
Before the hall starts crumbling
Beyond these snow white walls
There is a storm that’s coming
With its winds that blow forever
And the clouds that bring the night

Where will we go?
How will we find it?
Beyond ourselves,
Beyond our senses
To the stars and all eternity
And the mysteries of all time.

Ooo, ooo, oooh.
Track Name: Already Lost
It’s already lost to me now,
It’s already lost to me now
It came and it left before it ever stayed

I’m already lost in the crowd,
I’m already lost in the crowd,
The flood it came and it washed everything away

Ooo, ooo, ooo,
Ooo, ooo, hoo-ooo, ooo, ooo
Ooo, ooo, hoo-ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo

It’s already lost to me now,
It’s already lost to me now
It came and it left before it ever stayed

I’m already lost in the crowd,
I’m already lost in the crowd,
The flood it came and it rained and it rained and it rained and it rained
Track Name: No One Knows
No one knows where we’ve been
No one knows where we’re going
Is it all in our heads?
Or is it all really happening?

You come on out and take a look around,
Yeah what’s that sound?
Before you hear it it’s too late

Open your eyes,
To realize,
The infinite size of the universe
And all that space

That’s where I found myself
Just staring up to the heavens
That’s where I found myself again
It’s time to leave, and I want you to come with me
It’s time to leave before it’s too late.

No one knows where we’ve been
No one knows where we’re going
Is it all in our heads?
Or is it all really happening?
Track Name: Present State Part I
Standing all alone,
Staring into your phone
Not knowing where you are

Drinking too deep from the well
As your belly swells
And you forget who you are

Yeah why not look away look around you and see what’s going on today
Stop stumbling around like an idiot
Stop walking head on into shit

Take a look around and don’t forget that you still have your body
Not just marbles rolling round your head
Or a meme trolling round the inter web

Staring into the sky
I just keep asking why?
How did we fall in this trap?

No need for hackers or spies
We volunteered our whole lives
So we could use the new app

Yeah why not look away look around you and see what’s going on today
Stop stumbling around like an idiot
Stop walking head on into shit

Take a look around and don’t forget that you still have your body
Not just marbles rolling round your head
Or a meme trolling round the inter web
Track Name: Present State Part II
Run, run, run, run, run, run
Hide, hide, hide, hide, hide, hide
Track Name: Present State Part III
It starts again, as it always will
A sense of dread, of the inevitable
Where will we go?
How could we know?
It’s ok to be afraid
But for now just be here
Yes now just be near
In this moment and cherish the love
You still feel
