Track Name: One day
There’s this boy down in my street
I don’t really know his name
He always comes down to my house
And plays with my dog

There’s this girl in my school
Who I really like
She carries her books close to her chest
She has the most beautiful smile

One day I’m gonna ask her out
One day I’m gonna figure out
How things work

One day I had to leave town
I left my dog behind
It was the saddest day in 15 years
Of an entire life

I never told the girl in class
The way I felt for her
And my old dog stayed with the boy
That lived down in my street

One day I’m coming back for you
One day I’m telling you
How I feel

So many years have passed by
So many farewells and goodbyes
I fell in love with many other girls
I got lost in many different tries

I still remember my old dog
I saw him many years ago
As for the girl that was my love
She had her second son, a boy named Joe

One day I’m coming back for you
One day I’m telling you
How I feel
And everything I’ve seen
Track Name: One More Way To Paradise
The morning sun came through the glass
Found me on my knees at last
And I am finally feeling home inside my skin
There are just as many truths as there are humans
god shaped holes that something ruined
I close my eyes and try to let it in

If there were one more way to paradise
Would you pay no matter what the price
Are you in?

Do you believe whatever you are told?
Do you trust them more when they are old?
Or do you need to know the color of their skin?
A woman covered head to toe
You’d be surprised at what she knows
Do you think your paradise will let her in

If there were one more way to paradise
Would you pay no matter what the price
Are you in?
Track Name: I'm a hacker
I’m no black hat
I’m no white hat
I’m a red hat
Cause I'm a hacker!

I will fix it, I’ll format it, I will defrag your disk
Baby when you're with me there’s no risk
I’ve got Norton and McAfee and a Trojan too
Baby there’s no virus when it’s me and you

I’ve got no floppy and my disk is hard
I’m glad you got a slot for my sd card
I met this boy on the interwebs
We hit it off & we merged our heads

I fell in love, I felt alive
But then I discovered he used Windows 95
That was something I didn’t see
I couldn’t bring myself to hit control-Z

I’m no black hat
I’m no white hat
I’m a red hat
Cause I'm a hacker!

I will fix it, I’ll format it, I will defrag your disk
Baby when you're with me there’s no risk
I’ve got Norton and McAfee and a Trojan too
Baby there’s no virus when it’s me and you

I built him a computer with a fancy motherboard
The graphics card was the best I could afford
And when he typed the password, I said oh god lord!
Use a special symbol and no dictionary words

I’m no black hat
I’m no white hat
I’m a red hat
Cause I'm a hacker!

I will fix it, I’ll format it, I will defrag your disk
Baby when you're with me there’s no risk
I’ve got Norton and McAfee and a Trojan too
Baby there’s no virus when it’s me and you

I’m no black hat
I’m no white hat
I’m a red hat
Cause I'm a hacker!

I will fix it, I’ll format it, I will defrag your disk
Baby when you're with me there’s no risk
I’ve got Norton and McAfee and a Trojan too
Baby there’s no virus when it’s me and you
Track Name: Genre Undefined
I am a band of one
I am my biggest fan
I carry my own gear
I do the best I can

I have three followers on Spotify
And it is me myself and I
I’m going on tour soon
From the kitchen to the living room

I think I’m getting really good
If I had haters I’d be misunderstood
The path to stardom just takes time
Until then I’m genre undefined

I made a music video
I shot it all in selfie mode
Here, I burned you a CD
Couldn’t figure out MP3
Can’t afford a microphone
Recorded on my flip phone

I am a band of one
I am my biggest fan
Track Name: Desert Love
I’ve always been a traveling man
Hopping 'round the world without a plan

My bag is light
And I don’t care what time is my next flight

I met you in the desert night
I knew for sure that you are the one that’s right
For me

Anastasia, anesthesia, you numb my pain
I’m addicted to you
Anastasia, amnesia
Is all I need to forget you, girl

I washed your body with my bare hands
I watched you leave me in the frost bit sands

Why did you leave me?
Why? Why?
Why did you leave me?

Anastasia, anesthesia, you numb my pain
I’m addicted to you
Anastasia, amnesia
Is all I need to forget you, girl

Anastasia, anesthesia, you numb my pain
I’m addicted to you
Anastasia, amnesia
Is all I need to forget you, girl
Track Name: Your name
[Verse]
You never told me how easy
It would be to forget you
I don't remember your name
All I know is I regret you

I met you one night
When I was lonely
I thought you were right for me
But if only

[Pre-chorus]
I was looking for love
Where it isn't meant to be
There was never a story
Of you and me

[Verse]
I wasn't really into you
You didn't like me
I never understood
What we were supposed to be

We weren't really friends
Barely strangers
My heart was at peace
And couldn't see the danger

[Pre-chorus]
In trying to find love
Where it's not supposed to be
There was never between us
Any chemistry

[Chorus]
I still remember when I saw you for the first time
But I don't think you were ever meant to be mine
We're lost in chances playing love like a game
But I don't think I can remember your name

[Verse]
I don't know when you left my life
I didn't care
If there were tears
I wasn't there

The last time I saw you
You didn't see me
Once more we were strangers
Like we're supposed to be

[Outro]
I stopped looking for love
Where it's not meant to be
So that one day I might set
My heart free
Track Name: World of Opportunity
I hear the tick and the tock
of the clock in my head
telling me
to get out of bed. There's a
world of opportunity
waiting there for you and me.
Put on your shoes
and get out the door.
What on earth are you waiting for.
Places to go. People to see.
A world of opportunity.

Life is for living
Taking and giving
Track Name: How the Hell?
Tell me how we’re going to get ourselves out of this place

Do you remember how we spent that first December
Trying to think up all of the things we could be
Have you forgotten how we sat through autumn
Underneath all of the fallen leaves

Now I won’t mind if you unwind
All of my blindness wrapped up in my unkind words
I really won’t mind if you would take the time
To shrug away what’s understood

Tell me how we’re going to get ourselves out of this place

I can’t complain about that wretched May
When we spun each other every which way
Then summer groaned, all full of wicked woes
Not fully know were so many ways we’d go

The world stood still, it was waiting until
We could dissolve ourselves into the breeze
But pleased as hell, we might laugh or we might yell
It all depends upon the waning week

Tell me how we’re going to get ourselves out of this place
Track Name: Lord, Please Come and Take What's Yours
Tried so hard to get my way
I’d get on my knees and pray
Lord, I can’t carry anymore
Won’t you take this weight away?

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine

When I gave my life away
Darkest night then turned to day
I felt the pain but it was fine
And I lifted my voice to say

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine

In a world that’s cold and grey
I have finally found a way
Put my burdens on the floor
I don’t own them anyway

Lord, please come and take what’s yours
Oh, what’s yours what’s yours what’s yours
Lord, please come and take what’s yours
For this life was never mine
Track Name: Black Cat
Finished my smoke
And took a long look down the road
Trying not to think of those I care

As I've done so many times before this day
I'd leave without goodbye
It wasn't fair

Another day, another life
Waiting for me
Like before I'd start again somewhere

There comes a day when every man is gone
I don't think I'm there
I don't think I'm there

Are you here for me?
Are you here?
Are you here for me?
Are you here?
Are you here for me?
Is it time?

One day I know my time will come
And Death will knock on my door
I'll walk down these stairs

She'll tell me to pack my things and go
Little she knows
I travel with my hands bare

And for one last time I'll leave my home
One last trip without farewell
No time for a prayer

There comes a time when every man is gone
I hope that I'm not there
I hope that I'm not there

Are you here for me?
Are you here?
Are you here for me?
Are you here?
Are you here for me?
Is it time?

Are you here for me?
Is it time?
Track Name: Summer day
First it came like the rain
On a summer day
Like when we were young

I was scared when it came
Kept at bay
'Cause the storm was so strong

Then I learned to understand
And listen and see
The signs all around

The world took me by the hand
And told me to go
Where heaven meets the ground

There are no reasons to be scared
You don't need to forget where you came from
When you travel down this path
In a long long long afternoon

Then it went like the sun
After countless hours
Of a long summer day

Setting slowly, painting colors
Touching hearts and emotions
That I dare not to say

I was new and reborn
I was here all along
That's what I found

Watching the sun
Finally resting
Where heaven meets the ground

There are no reasons to be scared
You don't need to forget where you came from
When you travel down this path
In a long long long afternoon
Track Name: Dropped The Camera
A long way from half Moon Bay
Around the world halfway
He always kept the world at bay
He seemed to like it just that way
Froze impressions so they'd stay
An arm's length away
But then his armor fell away

He dropped the camera in the stream
He crossed the border, lost the frame
He dropped the camera in the stream
He is free and, free and strange

All the faces he'd portrayed
Turn to him, return his gaze
Unscripted and unmediated
Intense and untranslated
Senses flooding unabated
He notices he's afraid
Afraid and so alive

He dropped the camera in the stream
He crossed the border, lost the frame
He dropped the camera in the stream
He is free and, free and strange
Track Name: Touch me
Drag me out
Pull me through
I am nothing without you
Twist the blade
Beg for more
Till I bleed out
On the floor

We both know I
Need it this way
Lead me make me say

Touch me touch me
Take me to the edge and back
Touch me touch me
Waiting for your attack
Touch me touch me
All I want you to do is
Touch me, I want you
Track Name: Just like old times
It's been a while
Since i saw you
I have my habits
I fall into

My heart has muscle memories
I don't mind
I recall how it used to be
Just like old times

Just like old times
Just like old times
Just like old times

Oooohh

I remember this feeling
Oh so well
I know you feel it too
I can tell

Why don't we go back into the start
When I was yours, you were mine
It’s a dance, and you know your part
It’ll be just like old times

Just like old times
Just like old times
Just like old times

Oooohh

Just like old
Times are flying away
Will you be mine
Just like old times?
Just like old times

Ooooh
