Track Name: You Want It
you want it.
you'll get it.
you want it.
you'll get it you know.

dylan,
tucker,
leo,
rock show,
red pick,
lunch bag...

let's go.
let go.
Track Name: Silhouette Vase
driving a little too fast,
down the baltimore pass.
oh my love is almost all packed,
oh my love, is under attack.
but i’m the one holding the case,
saying goodbye, and kissing her face.
so i’ll take her silhouette vase,
and her flowers will be hot on the chase.

so dance with me 'til the music’s gone
dance with me in my arms
dance with me one last dawn
dance with me so i can write this song
it's moments like these
that shake back time.

moments like these
that turn the music on
moments like these that disarm
moments like these
where new days dawn
moments like these
that write these songs

so dance with me and shake back time
dance with me and shake back time,

well deriving a little romance,
now that's all the more vast.
my love, alms for a logical track,
my love inference, i cannot take back.

now time's the one holding our fate
so i’ll be praying good, missing your face
and yeah i’ll take your silhouette vase,
and your flowers will be hot on the chase

so dance with me 'til the music’s gone
dance with me in my arms
dance with me one last dawn
dance with me so i can write this song

moments like these
that shake back time.

moments like these
that turn the music on
moments like these
that disarm
moments like these
where new days dawn
moments like these
that write these songs

so dance with me and shake back time
oh dance with me and shake back time,
come on.

i brought it,
back home...
all alone,
goodness knows i tried to shake back…

time.
Track Name: Future Me
future me.

gabe: here i am
a precursor…of you

in my present state
i dream about…two words

future me, future me, future me
future me, future me, future me
and here i stand
a rehearser confused

‘cause in our different states
we amount to, two blurs

future me, future me, future me
future me, future me, future me
future me, future me, future me
wish you would you see

with your salient eyes
you should be long gone
with no goodbyes
it’d be better that way

you know i’m trouble
a debtor by trade
yeah, i’m rubble on parade
sufficed to say
you’ve made a selfless trade
while i griped
and betrayed

future me
with your salient eyes
explain to me why
you stay

miki: oh i tried
to leave you
thought my memory lied
couldn’t believe you
you’re that mess inside
i breathe through
must confess i denied
i need you

refute you’re me, refute you’re me, can’t refute you’re me

with your avoidant guise
you’re hiding from the truth
with no good life
but you feel better that way

it’s less than subtle
you’re an inventor by trade
and i’m the double
you parlay

sufficed to say you made a selfless trade
though you gripe and betray
it’s the prize you paid
with your callow tirades
the book you write,
may get frayed…
don’t disavow the page

amongst the litter at your feet
are literary feats
cntrl + alt + delete
rinse and repeat

amongst the litter at your feet
are literary feats
ctrl + alt + delete
rinse and repeat
Track Name: Movie-Set Weights
i'd been lifting movie-set weights
so i could act strong

the appeal of furnished dates
made my calendar long

spending days too afraid
to change that song

the feel of tarnished grates
beneath my feet
left the thoughts in my head
on the blink

and, how many watts in my brain?
how about my heart?
are the flames burning bright?
or, is blame burning fright?

it's all up to me
yeah, it's easy to see
got some changes to make
some electricity to awake

so, here i am
light down low, but still shining

and i'll be shifting tectonic plates
reconnect the bonds
(those faults, those breaks,
left for me to shake)

the feel of furnished fate
to the furnace it belongs
(dawns lit by eclipsed
sun-dial dialogues)

and as those days ran late,
i will run on
(my faults, heartbreaks:
my mistaken songs)

i did write, some can’t weight
so move on, ‘cause

the real love i create
within my beat
makes the reaches of my heart
reach its peak

how many watts in my brain?
how 'bout my heart?
are the flames burning bright?
oh, you know it, you know it
that's right, that's right!

and it's all up to me
yeah, it's easy to see
that i got some changes to make
some electricity to awake

so, here i am
oh, here i am
with a soul
realizing

that here i am
yeah, here i am
with a light no bounds now
and still rising
Track Name: Geography Objective
wondered how the streets had managed
to make and raise the collective
and suss out the art we live
that's my geography objective

outside the old theatre's damage
recalled to mind the praise we collected
for giving back what's ours to give
that's my geography objective

this land of ghost-town strand
has all the, all the life we expected
so lets trust those hearts that beat with that geography objective

my love, now standing there
where the sound shook
that ragged thoroughfare
you're the reason to be free
so let's be free, and let's breathe

my love, now standing there
where the sound shook
that ragged thoroughfare
you're the reason to be free
so let's be free, and let's breathe

my love, now standing there
where the sound shook
that ragged thoroughfare
you're the reason to be free
so let's be free, and let's breathe

you're on today, you're on today
where there was shaking
you are making the ground feel concrete

you're on today, you're on today
there's purpose that has surfaced
beneath my feet

you're on today, you're on today
where there was breaking
you are making the ground feel complete

you're on today, you're on today
now the basement's on the pavement that's reason to dream

i wander down the streets for vantage
to make and raise my perspective
i must shout, and start to live
that's my geography objective
atop the old theatre's main stage
recalled to mind the
strays that connected
singing back what's theirs to give
that's my geography objective

your sound surrounds each step,
writes your story for the next kids
and i trust their hearts will beat with your geography objective
Track Name: Spirit of Change
the past is not a fact, it’s a story
the teller calls it a fact, it’s history
the way to go is no mystery
it’s not written in stone
it’s written in our bones
we’re writing more as we go,
we’re writing more than we know

we’re solving the way, guided by faith
in the god damn spirit of change
solving the way, guided by faith
in the god damn spirit of change

ancestors have taught us lessons
we forge story arches as our weapons
‘cause with reflection
the meaning is substantial
and with action
the rhetoric gets cancelled

take it down fear to the ground
hell can’t stop us now
organize your movements
pump your fist and move it

the past is not a fact,
said the past is not a fact
it’s time to counter that act,
oh its time to counter that act
cause we’re solving the way,
cause we’re solving the way

and that way to go is no mystery
it’s not written in stone
it’s written in our bones
we’re writing more as we go,
we’re writing more than we know

we’re solving the way, guided by faith
in the god damn spirit of change
solving the way, guided by faith
in the god damn spirit of change

brothers and sisters if we let them
they’ll form a darkness
that won’t lessen
but with reflection
the meaning is substantial
and with action
the rhetoric gets cancelled

take it down fear to the ground
hell can’t stop us now
organize your movements
pump your fist and move it
Track Name: Make Your Sound Sound

Track Name: That is Mine
that is mine
don' take the river,
only thing i’ve got,
keeping me alive,
when nights are burning hot.

hasn't rained in years.
don't expect you to care,
whether or not i live,
when nights burn beyond compare

cause it's lonely
and dry to the wilt.
my only,
wet as drenched silk.
if the river stops flowing,
i’ll lose my mind.
you may own me, but,
that is mine.

take many things.
take any thing.
but i’ll be damned,
don't you turn
water, to sand.
Track Name: Palindrome
boy, you’re my palindrome
your rounded phrase begets my home
you’ve reversed every
chromosome inside

i had mind to confide in your symmetry
that’s a symphony
no two ways about that
you’re mine

palindrome, you’re the gal/guy
who drove me crazy and rephrased me
under your spell backwords
and for words i fell

i prefer pi,
is it i? it is i
you’re a racecar on my radar
i did, o did i

madame, i’m adam
never even, mam
now eve, we’re here, we’ve won

won’t lovers revolt now
eros saw i was sore
borrow or rob
evolvers rev love

madame, i’m adam
never even, mam
now eve, we’re here, we’ve won

i prefer pi,
is it i, it is i
you’re a racecar on my radar
i did, o did i

palindrome, you’re the guy/gal
who drove me crazy and rephrased me
under your spell backwords
and for words we fell

i had mind to confide in your symmetry
that’s a symphony
no two ways about that
you’re mine

girl, you’re my palindrome
your rounded phrase begets my home
you’ve reversed every
chromosome inside
