Track Name: Laura Enever
I swear one day
I'll live with fame
and they all will know
what is my name

and then that day
I'll phone you and
I'll start to talk as
if we were more than friends

last night i dreamt
that i cheated on you
my hands were cold
while my eyes were still on you

then i woke up
and all the feelings were gone
and to wake up became
the thing i regretted the most

no, my youth is going to go
i’m standing here all alone

no, laura went to surf
and i’m on cronulla beach alone
Track Name: Lucky
you’re so lucky but i feel no envy
that’s because you’ve been just a miserable liar
and i’m acting wrong with you again
it will always be the same

i looked inside just to lose my breath
and now i’m eager to live forever there
i flip and scream to entertain who’s left
but i shouldn't since i can’t call you my friends
I write and play to please myself
cause i know you're not here to listen to my set
I don't get the point, why living like that?
i’m free in a body which has borders itself

yes i'm numb, I can't care less bout your tantrums
screw your second hand advice, ask yourself why i'm a phantom
i'm free to mock your choice and then
be on your wrong side again

you loved to fight, to claim that land
as yours, but we all know you're not meant to be there
then you carved this sentence on my chest
"do what you want with my life i don't need to rest"
I write and play to please myself
cause i know they're not here to listen to my set
I don't get the point, why living like that?
i’m free in a body which has borders itself
Track Name: Lake Trip
it’s been what it’s been
it was what it was
my past keeps on asking me what i've done
it’s been what it’s been
it was what it was
every first time you're always on your own

d'you remember that time we were in my car
heading to the lake hoping for the sun
music flowed smoothly through the roof
you were so dark, but you still looked pure
“let’s leave for the evening, for the rest of our life”
these were all just lies lies lies lies lies

and then that first time i tried to tell you
i didn't care at all about what you've been through
“i’ve been through bad things and past loves too
but it won't stop me from loving you”
i can't even remember how long it’s been
but i'm sick and tired ‘cause that feeling’s still here
Track Name: Empty
empty days, empty rooms
empty me, empty you
empty sores, d'you want some more?
empty i lay against the floor
empty what has been and gone
empty from the bottom of my broken soul
broken as i was found
with empty lungs I fall through the ground

did you ever wonder why living this way
is harder than trying to catch the pouring rain
why not now and why not then?
we earned it all but there’s no time left to check
i saw your eyes inside the tube
replayed it twice pretending she was you
have you ever been dragged down
"casualty" is my middle name now
have you ever say those fatal words
have you ever said "please don't go"?
Track Name: Anything / Anyone
I see you clearly staring at me
from your profile picture but
it screams "she's unreachable"- aren't you?
that’s cause i’m living in wait for a cue
new york's greedy, it's looking forward to have you
back after all this time, i'm sure
we met once, i saw you around twice, i dreamt of you everynight
no, that's not true, it's just absurd

the same old bar, that beer, i’m drunk
the father, the son and the holy stash
your flawless eye's a pain i can’t feel

i don't mean anything to anyone

i see the truth you’re not staring at me
but now i don’t even want you to
i bet you feel unreachable, don’t you?
your plastic soul is the perfect ware for the wolves
london’s blue, it doesn’t care if i’m blue too
after all this time here i’m not even sure that
we met once, i saw you around twice, i dreamt of you everynight
no, that’s still not true, i’m glad it keeps on sounding absurd

my spotted shirt, the flight you booked
the promise that you won't return
to forget your gaze is a pain now i won’t feel

i don't mean anything to anyone
i won’t feel anything for anyone
Track Name: Stay the Same
can you stay the same
as you were in 2008
when we used to live the rush
to growing up and escaping
this filthy town that
made us already feel tamed
this time i won't let your feelings fade away

can you stay the same
as you were in 2008
when your blonde hair
was chocking me in my dreams
which are now hazy memories
and half-forgotten names
this time i won't let your feelings fade away

please forgive me Kaya
I found another girl who caught my eye
it's just another try to turn the lights up bright and forget the past
Please forgive me Kaya
She was just removing the sleep from my eyes
it’s just another way to say i chose her over you

can you stay the same
as you were in the late 2008
i swear this time i won't let your feelings fade away
Track Name: Keep On Rising
Down in the depths of my soul
Feeling the lost of control
In its spirit
So colourful
If you feel it then let's go
To a place where you belong
Give it strength to carry on
Open your heart
Set your mind at ease
Leave your life
And you'll be free

We're gonna rise
Keep on rising
Rise

Sometimes you feel like
You're down and out
Feeling the pressure
And you're in doubt
And your feeling low
Nowhere to go
Don't you worry
I know you're gone

but I’ll Rise
Keep on rising
Rise
Track Name: Jacque Fresco
let jacque fresco speak
he has the answer right here
post capitalism?!
the future's here but its still not too clear yet
mom thinks i'm a freak
just cause she can't see what's in my head at night
self sacrifice leads to paradise
as much as lucid dreaming leave you paralyzed

i painted 10 quid black
it's not a sign of mourning, it’s cause I want your market dead
your order is a mess
you missed the point you waste of human cells
let jacque fresco build
even though I know it's not too late till it's too late yeah
system takes its toll and it wants you to die
after a life spent chasing profit instead of the stars

(and that's why i got mad)

“utopia” is just a word nobody cares about at all
“utopia” doesn’t mean it’s/you’re wrong, but god I’m so depressed now
this utopia is all my world, i’m doomed i can’t escape now
an utopia is just a fraud and I’m too old to dare to know
