Track Name: Strange Days
Strange days when eyes are on me
A pair of eyes I cannot see
If you question, boy, we’ll turn up the heat
These are very strange days indeed

Can't go another day longer
Can't wait the fire's gettin' closer
Can't sit back and wait till it's over
If you want change, change it now

Strange days when the men on the hill
Only care about passin’ a bill
That keep you and me from gettin’ our fill
These are very strange days indeed

Can't go another day longer
Can't wait the fire's gettin' closer
Can't sit back and wait till it's over
If you want change, change it now

Strange days but it’s the same old bag
Give ‘em any reason to keep wavin’ a flag
More lies laced as reasons to brag
These are very strange days indeed

Can't go another day longer
Can't wait the fire's gettin' closer
Can't sit back and wait till it's over
If you want change, change it now
Track Name: Pioneers
I’m going over the rainbow
I’ve fallen into the rabbit hole
Feelin’ like a pioneer

Everything starts to move so slow
Air’s rare where we’re about to go
Feelin’ like a pioneer

Never gonna give up
No we’ll never stop pushin’
Cause we are pioneers
Shooting past shooting stars
Playin’ on an air guitar
Cause we are pioneers

They said it couldn’t be done
Just tryin’ to take away all my fun
Feelin’ like a pioneer

For them the future’s so far away
But I see through the lens of better days
Feelin’ like a pioneer

Never gonna give up
No we’ll never stop pushin’
Cause we are pioneers
Shooting past shooting stars
Playin’ on an air guitar
Cause we are pioneers
Track Name: Tornado
Movin’ across the country
Slowly pickin up speed
All it took to get everything started
Was the slightest breeze

I can feel it in the air
I can feel it on the ends of the hairs on my head

It’s comin’ down to the ground
Like a tornado like a tornado
It’s comin’ down down down to the ground like a tornado

This isn’t about the weather
It’s for the ones who have come to see
All the problems that have slowly
Taken over this place we call our country

I can feel it in the air
I can feel it on the ends of the hairs on my head

It’s comin’ down to the ground
Like a tornado like a tornado
It’s comin’ down down down to the ground like a tornado

You there in the shadows
It’s for you to come clean
And your favor returned’s gonna make you bleed
Oooo your favor returned’s gonna make you bleed
Oooo your favor returned is gonna make you bleed

I can feel it in the air
I can feel it on the ends of the hairs on my head

It’s comin’ down to the ground
Like a tornado like a tornado
It’s comin’ down down down to the ground like a tornado
Track Name: I Wanna Feel Everything
I whispered in the ear of gravity
I said please let go of me

I wanna feel everything
I wanna feel everything

To be a king and know the weight that it brings
To know joy and to have nothing

I wanna feel everything
I wanna feel everything

I wanna taste you in my mouth
I wanna lay your body down

I wanna feel everything
I wanna feel everything
Track Name: Improvise
When life starts getting hard to take
When a left hook comes from outer space
You gotta decide what kind of move you’re gonna make
You’re gonna find from what it is you’re made

Don’t you worry just improvise
Improvise, improvise
Don’t you worry just improvise
Improvise, improvise

When fear start filling up the day
There’s an action you’re afraid to take
You wonder if the weight is gonna cause you to break
You’re out in left field when the ball is hit your way

Don’t you worry just improvise
Improvise, improvise
Don’t you worry just improvise
Improvise, improvise
Track Name: All We Want
We’ve had enough of this
We’re all callin’ bullshit
The light is burning a hole through the past
Time to press reset

All we want is to go ahead without you
All we want is to make the cut clean
All we want is to build the world better
All we want it’s all we want

We won’t look the other way
We’re not gonna obey
No one likes the writing on the wall
All we need to do is erase

All we want is to go ahead without you
All we want is to make the cut clean
All we want is to build the world better
All we want it’s all we want

The lion’s wakin’ up
There’s nothin’ you can do to control us
The lion’s wakin’ up
There’s nothin’ you can do to control us

All we want is to go ahead without you
All we want is to make the cut clean
All we want is to build the world better
All we want it’s all we want

The lion’s wakin’ up
There’s nothin’ you can do to control us
The lion’s wakin’ up
There’s nothin’ you can do to control us
Track Name: You and I Will Be Alright
Some days it feels like we’re just
Puttin out a fire to watch the next one flare up
I know that life wasn’t meant to be easy
But these days are harder than a hammer hittin concrete

But you and I will be alright
I know that we are gonna be alright
I know that as long as we stick together
You and I will be alright

Before we knew it, we got buried
With no shovel just a dead canary
Can’t remember the last time we saw
Light at the end of the tunnel is so long

We're gonna' be alright
You and I will be alright
We're gonna' be alright

I know that we are gonna be alright
I know that as long as we stick together
You and I will be alright
I know that we are gonna be alright
I know that as long as we stick together
You and I will be alright
Track Name: Weightless
The days are long and the nights are short
Filled up with dreams I do not like
The thoughts running through my head
I’d like to put in a strangle hold and squeeze ‘em till they’re dead

Calling all the ghosts
Lay your troubles down
Take a little rest
From a world that’s bringing you down

I’m feelin’ weightless
Floating so high above the ground
This view is leavin’ me breathless
I can see so clearly now

I’m feelin’ weightless
All the pain that I had is gone
I wish this feeling was endless
That it’d go on and on and on

On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on

On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on

Every now and then I need to find
A time when I can rest my weary mind
Take my hand we’ll fade away
From the lights and the noise and the stress of the day

Calling all the ghosts
Lay your troubles down
Take a little rest
From a world that’s bringing you down

I’m feelin’ weightless
Floating so high above the ground
This view is leavin’ me breathless
I can see so clearly now

I’m feelin’ weightless
All the pain that I had is gone
I wish this feeling was endless
That it’d go on and on and on

Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on

On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on

Calling all the ghosts
Lay your troubles down
Take a little rest
From a world that’s bringing you down

Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on

On and on and on
Let’s make this feeling go
On and on and on
Track Name: Nothing Comes Close to You
You’ve got me higher than a Colorado sunset
You’ve got me thinkin' that you’re a sure bet
You got my face feelin' like plastic
Smilin' all the time with you’s fantastic

Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one being the one for you
Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one for you

When I’m with you I can let everything go
We’re each other’s super hero
We’re shinin' brighter than the glitter on a diamond
We’re singin' louder than a couple of lions

Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one being the one for you
Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one for you

When I found you that’s timin'
The way we work that's just science

Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one being the one for you
Baby nothing comes close to
Being the one for you
Track Name: The Beginning All Over Again
When are we gonna' stand up

This is the beginning all over again
