Track Name: Paper Hands
Little boy stayed in a basement

Born scarred, he was given a mask to hide, not scare
Called the wooden floor his world
He made friends in his dream

Unreal, he tasted the dream
Waking up being the hardest part

Then he slipped, away
Deep into his dreams before someone
Took him out, holding hands with a piece of paper

Many days later, when the house was built again
A little girl went, went to play with him
They made friends in their dreams

And she asked, do I have to wake up?
Happily she played, played games with a piece of paper

Then they slipped away
Deep into their dreams
Before someone took them
Holding paper hands
Track Name: Sad But Not Blue
Warship stop a while
Rise above the sorrow
Why fight each other now
Look beyond tomorrow

Fire your minds
Hold your guns
What you do
Decides you
Love is an ocean you need to cross
So borrow its silent blues

Warlords I sing a song
Spring it is the season
Sad is a butterfly
It feeds on your reasons

Charge your thoughts
To better things, may be a better you
Love is an ocean you take a dip
And color yourself a blue

War is a thing within
It keeps your heart in shadows
Fight yourself before you fight
With each other, tomorrow

Hold your words
Think again
Is it even worth the pain

Sad begets the sad
I say, rather listen to blues
Track Name: Sublime
Slowly he knew where he was
Look at things without them blurring
The world is no longer in motion
Still has the radiant glow and the charm of a new leaf

It’s been so long seems like from another life
It’s been so long, but it’s only been a while
A weed is but an unloved flower
In a place where there’s no need to belong

His sense of direction was coming back
He took a walk along the beach, watching the poi dancers
The fire weaving a web of light around them
Much like the energy field that engulfed him a while back
Slowly it occurred to him
That the brilliance that surrounded him a few hours ago
Was nothing but an ordinary existence

It’s been so long seems like from another life
It’s been so long, but it’s only been a while
A weed is but an unloved flower
In a place where there’s no need to belong
Track Name: Silently
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like a tree, the park or the red chair
Like the leaves of a tree or the parking lot

I am gonna exist as silently as possible
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like a shadow behind you
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like everything or nothing at all

I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like the old woman or the parking lot
The car, the streets, the road

I am gonna exist as silently as possible
As silently as possible

Your silence is unbearable
My silence is welcome

I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like the tree, the park or the red chair
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like a shadow behind you
I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like everything or nothing at all
As silently as possible

I am gonna exist as silently as possible
Like the leaves of a tree or the old woman crossing the road
As silently as possible
As silently as possible

Because silence is welcome
Track Name: Spell
We had no time to think
The moon above us shining bright
You know she ain’t the best
A scruffy dog and very average

But then she'd look at them
In a spell she'll leave them to die
Like a creeper

I am a bar stool in a pub
I have seen her here and quite often
Her evil plans reside
In the countless glass of wine she drinks
But she never pays her tab
The men will take her tab on for days
She’s like a snake in her house

And on a summer night
The starry nights are her playground
Don’t know whom she'll kill
But she will kill on a night like this
Track Name: Ripples
Ripples in the sky
Puzzles within your mind
Ripples in the sky
Puzzles within your mind

If you wanted something more, would you ask?
When I’m out of all my words, would you talk?

I see ripples, they're making puzzles
I see ripples, they're making puzzles

Ripples making puzzles
Ripples making puzzles
(Within your mind)
Track Name: Noise City
In the chaos and cacophony of the busy city streets
Under the scorching sun of the sweltering summer heat
Around him a million people with clefts of confusion
He stares in the face of the futility of his existence
Merely a prisoner, of hope and time
