Track Name: My Geometry
Feeling alone, feeling as empty as can be
Feeling amused, by the shapes of my geometry
People would help me, but I just built that wall by myself
People would care about me, but I just built it cause I felt that I must

Feeling so strange, feeling as zany as can be
Feeling ashamed by the truths in my reality
People would let me be free, but I just made some rules to hold me in
People would let me be free but I just locked the door and keep myself in

Where I found weird peace
And in that depth of my mind, I know all I can count on is me
But a part of me do believe
It needs at least one more person for that place to be complete
Now how am I supposed to feel free

And the things that I read and the things that I listened to
Won’t change a thing, although they gave me love
And a means of release, a means of reflection
They’re steady reminder that you’ll always be on my mind
I long to feel that summer breeze you gave to me
Where did it flee? I need you to know you are The Key
Only then I’ll unlock me and I’ll stop
Feeling alone, feeling as empty as can be
Track Name: People Like Us
Late night watching the stars aligning
Waiting for answers to come
Communicating with the hands that guide me
Hoping they never untie

But if this is what you want
Well then this is what you get
A boy who follows his faith
Til there’s nothing sane left

All day waiting for signs to haunt me
While all the other kids are having fun
And I’m sitting wondering what it is I’m actually making
And if it’ll ever be of help to anyone, at all

But this is what you get
Cause this is what you wanted
A man who follows his fate
Til there’s nothing at all

How bout that priest who is spreading your love
But in turn left his lover to rot in the dark

How bout that preacher, preaching his war
Can’t you just whisper to him, he’s a bore

How bout that monk hiding deep in himself
Oh I hope he’s not lonely, I hope he’s still there

People like us we love you with all of our souls
So for fuck’s sake don’t leave us
People like me, I will follow you til the end of my life
So for fuck’s sake don’t leave me now
Track Name: The Crossing Song
You wanna cross the river but there’s no water
But don’t fill it with your tears
Cause if you shed one more of those things
I can’t stop drinking your fears
If you expect to go back to the times
When you don’t have to care about anything
Maybe it’s best to hide in your present disgrace
And hope to wake up in the place of your dreams

Do you think it’s beautiful to feel you’ve got everything you need
Cause deep down I know you’re sick of consuming everything
And do you think it’s beautiful if you absolutely know where you’re going
Cause in your heart I know you hate to get lost in the crowd
Fill the river with hope now and get out

I just read a book where the character’s a phony
And he declared that everyone’s a phony
Perhaps he’s just so pissed
That the whole world is showing a reflection of himself
I bet you’re still thinking that you’re nobody
I hope you stop judging yourself like that
Everyone will think it’s hard to be your friend
When you could always be the best that they had

Do you think it’s beautiful to feel you’ve got everything you need
Cause deep down I know you’re sick of consuming everything
And do you think it’s beautiful if you absolutely know where you’re going
Cause in your heart I know you hate to get lost in the crowd
Fill the river with love now and move on

Wouldn’t you really think it’s beautiful
If you cross the river and land on the other side
I hope you never look back to the land you once stood on
Fill the river with hope now and get out
Fill the river with love now and move on
Get a grip on your life now and live on
Track Name: My Family
When the road is very long
And I’m running out of songs
And I’ve run out of pretensions to believe
And I feel so deprived of love
But I’m too scared to take some drugs
And there is nothing more that I could have achieved
I run to my family
My Family
My Family
And at the end of the day I’ll just be glad that they’ll always stick for me

And my sister’s growing up
She’s experiencing life
I can hear it from the pop songs that she sings
And my ol’ brother’s in his room
Sometimes I don’t know how he’s doing
At least he has work and he is getting thin
And my momma’s having the time of her life
Flying all around
I’m always eager for the stories that she brings
And well my daddy’s worried sick
He doesn’t get what I’m about
But I know deep inside he really does sees me
How i love my family
My family
My family
And the rest of my life I would be blessed if they do believe in me
