Track Name: How Long Till Dawn
Waking up twice an hour
Sounds of the night grow louder
I can still feel something
From the restless night before
Memories, trying to be
Something to believe
How long till dawn?

Snapshots and memory making
Black and white and fading
There’s a man looking nowhere
Saying “Son, I should have done…
All these things... I could be"
Endlessly in between
How long till dawn?

Running down dreams forgotten
Races we run so often
But have I been running blindly?
Everyday we’re shining on
Distantly I can see
Glimmering, twilight gleams
How long till dawn?
Track Name: Fever Dream
A fever dream in a butterfly net
There's always holes but you never forget
Surrender to the other forces in play
It's either the end or beginning of a brand new day

Sweat dripping from your head to the floor
Slowly rolling through the space under the door
Let it roll, let it roll for a while
Forever forward, fact and fiction reconcile

Would you believe?
Would you believe?

The body shakes and the senses betray
Shouting out just run away, run away
Back to the home and the garden we grew
Pushing through until we get to Arthur Avenue

Cataloging all the colors that you see
Seeing stars from afar, where you want to be
You try and try to pin it down, pin it down
Under the glass or buried deep down under ground

Would you believe?
Would you believe?
Track Name: Dig in My Heels
I have done what I came here to do
Dig in my heels and speak the truth
My goals I made plain, cleared a path
Now that it's time there's no looking back

I have achieved what I always believed
This train is coming, it's coming for me
I'm on my way, been counting the days
This train is coming, it's coming for me

Just one year ago I made a vow
"This will be better, my time is now"
Well I have emerged, my words ring true
Am I over my past? Is it time to start new?

I have achieved what I always believed
This train is coming, it's coming for me
I'm on my way, been counting the days
This train is coming, it's coming for me
Track Name: Turn Around
Red light turns to green
Fire up this machine
Then the race is on
Guns drawn and we meet at dawn
Smoke and fire burning up the road
Stress and gasoline
Undercover amphetamines

Then I turn around

Asteroids collide
Comets fly around in the sky
Everyone is wrong
Misconceptions about who is strong
Fear is poison flowing through your veins
On the other side
We're divided and the gap is wide

Then I turn around

It's not about who's stronger now
Find out why and how
What can make us whole again

Red light turns to green
Fire up this machine

Then I turn around
