Track Name: Slow
Can I tell you ‘bout my love?
Kinda thing that you’re dreaming of
Just a simple type of recipe
Stir it up just for her and me

Oh… do you wanna know? Slow.. but that’s how it goes

Keep your eyes right in front of you
Don’t criticize other points of view
Everyone looking for a star
Little hands in a cookie jar

Separate from a fantasy
See the beauty, reality
‘Cause I know all you know is wrong
Another night sing a simple song

Oh… do you wanna know?
Slow... but that’s how it goes

Eh e yea e yea eh!

Oh… do you wanna know?
Slow... but that’s how it goes
Track Name: Song of Love
Everybody here wants to ask you to dance
How could I be the one in this circumstance?

All the boys line up just to say
'What's Up?' to you

And I'm the shy one who
Does the only thing I can do

Just write this song of love
And take you far away
The things that people say
Don't matter anyway
Track Name: Say I'm Sorry
1000s of pennies falling all around us
1000s of pennies maybe take some home
1000s of people screaming that they're righteous
1000s of reasons people got it wrong

Cold gifts are better than no gifts at all
Gold lifts a feather as things start to fall
Go grab a sweater don't forget the weather
Maybe we can't fight it off maybe we can stall

I won't say I'm sorry
Nothing to say I'm sorry about
I won't say I'm sorry
Nothing to say

It's not the hardest word if you never have to say it
Track Name: Simplified
In a race to complicate
The situation's just a duplicate
Of other times, past, present, future
All entwined

So if we stop to understand
The reason why we're dealt a losing hand
There's an ace hidden up inside the sleeve of
Everyone. Everyone? Everyone.

Now the clock ticks time away
Struggles through another boring day
Settle down and find the essence
Of what you could really be

It seems so
It seems so
It seems so
Could it be so?

Simplified!

If you're cut or fuller figured
Extend your middle finger
Put up your dukes and tell them
All to go away

It seems so
It seems so
It seems so
Could it be so?

Simplified!
Track Name: Running To Yr Grave
Took a hit
Of a life I could not quit
Got so sick of it
Just so hard not to resist

Travel light
To make it through the night
Hoping just to feel alright
Gotta get that 2nd sight

Oh yea, oh yea
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea

Falling leaves
As your heart sits on the sleeve
This longing to believe
Count the stars that you can see

Outer space
A slower kind of race
You can’t slow down the pace
Hide it all without a trace

Oh yea, oh yea
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea (repeat)

She’s the queen
The partner in this dream
Never going to extremes
Figure out what this life means

Oh yea, oh yea
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Honestly running to your grave
Oh yea, oh yea, oh yea (repeat)
Track Name: Bubble Gum
Going out the world is putty in our hands
Make the plan moving at the speed of light… alright!
Holding hands looking for that one night fan
A distant land… exploration is the plan… alright! Tonight!

Walking home but you can’t avoid the satellites above
Like bubble gum on your shoe

Toss it back, don’t give me any slack
it’s just a fact, jack
Cause I know you got my back another stack
As the world falls through the cracks

Walking home but you can’t avoid the satellites above
Like bubble gum on your shoe … you can’t avoid, you can’t avoid…
Like bubble gum on your shoe
Track Name: Magnificent Golden Road Dream
I used to know a boy next door
He would curse the dark
and hope the light
would come around once more

And he knew one thing
He had one trick
To push aside a feeling
and try it all
and see what might stick

And so he supposed
With no wisdom to sow
A carnival ride of adventure
a traveling show

Appeared on the scene
This woman of means

With tales of her own
Magnificent golden road dreams
With tales of her own
Magnificent golden road dreams

And so it begins
The two make a scene
With promises whispered in darkness
that planted the seed

The story it moves
with two on the go

And tales of their own
Magnificent golden road dreams
And tales of their own
Magnificent golden road dreams
Track Name: Suburban Penetration
Watching patiently removed
Watching ashes fall to floor
The air it strangles me again

And though I totally refuse
With hopes the smoke will go away
As daddy comes back home a friend

Criticize your mistake
Let your star penetrate

The paper sits in its place
Open folded by the door
A pen is in your hand

Though I don't know what to do
The air it falls apart again
Anger turning into sand

Criticize your mistake
Let your star penetrate
