Comet 03:57
Time for the comet crashing right down Time for the comet crashing right down Now we’re all living in darkness Compressing life into what I’m looking for Pulling it off me like loneliness Breathing so slow that I can’t walk through the door Painting the pictures in my eyes Working against all the voices that tell me no Aren’t we all swirling in disguise Geometric patterns in nature start to show Time for the comet crashing right down Time for the comet crashing right down Looking into your mirror Somehow it’s always different but the same Now you see everything clearer You’re morphing into yourself more everyday With swirling colors dripping off the wall Like older minds that sink into the sand Feeling so stuck waiting for a call Lightning strikes by nobody’s command Time for the comet crashing right down Time for the comet crashing right down Time for the comet crashing right down Time for the comet crashing right down

Wish that I could film the lights in my eyes Morphing with my dreams and the midnight sky Carving deepest thoughts is a world unknown Eternity is lost in time that’s old Inside a grain of sand I cannot understand How some life can be So small that you can barely even see Where will I go, the future’s open I’m riding a wave to the shore Light is pouring into the ocean The past behind me wanting nothing more Pulling out your splinter Reflecting only holds you back ‘Til you see your picture And don’t get ruled by the you of the past I’ve been up all night Thinking ‘bout the lost parts of myself Will I ever find them Do they exist in someone else Where will I go, the future’s open I’m riding a wave to the shore Light is pouring into the ocean The past behind me wanting nothing more Where will i go ooooooooo x3 Oooooooooo

Overgrown and untamed Wielding lust and holding blame A daydream i am in so deep I’m watching waves washing over me In the springtime I knew my name At 3am in the pouring rain I closed my eyes and heard birds sing They were so close and so far away So far away In my head it’s sunny In my head it’s sunny The world is so dark but In my head it’s sunny It has been eight long years Since I have faced up against my fears With tired feet where do I go I’m trickling down and I’m draining slow In the summertime I forgot my face I was slowing down and losing pace Nothing to look forward to Then I realized I needed something new Something new In my head it’s sunny In my head it’s sunny The world is so dark but In my head it’s sunny You can let go what you already know (x4) In my head it’s sunny In my head it’s sunny The world is so dark but In my head it’s sunny (x4)

Only Human 04:02
I never really felt like you knew my birthday Even though I never would forget yours So this year I’m not going out of my way Because time on you is such a chore Yeah you’d ask me what year I am We saw each other almost every day You never really cared what made me my own man You never bothered to see things in my way I hope you find what you’re looking for Maybe in a book or in a shell that’s washed ashore I know you’ve always wanted more I’m only human, I’m my own human Not yours I get the notion that you’re writing about me Collecting thoughts that I was so bad to you When in reality neither of us did wrong Nothing lasts forever and our time was through I hope you find what you’re looking for Maybe in a book or in a shell that’s washed ashore I know you’ve always wanted more I’m only human, I’m my own human I’m only human, I’m my own human Not yours Not yours
