Track Name: Butter
Listen up soldier tell me what do you know
About the present moment and power of soul
Did you get that?
Staying on point can take take it's toll
Point you in a direction
When you're following your goal
But never mind that now
Did you get caught up in that violence
So shitty
They tell you how to be
Then you try to get free
Society
Conform us to an image floating on a big screen
Take off your jeans, your hat
That's not really where it's at

All night
When you walk in the street light
Do you know what it feels like
Do be alive?

Wait a minute sir I've got a few things to say
Before you take me away
I've been trying real, real hard
Trying to get away from it
To take it real far
I see my potential in the sky
But I just can't seem to reach it
Every day I don't know why
Can you help me out
I want to get some credit
For wanting to break out
Wait just a minute
Just a moment real quick
It's an honor not to skip through the bullshit
I gotta say don't give up your time
True change comes when you keep an open mind
Find other ways to make it right...

All night
When you walk in the street light
Do you know what it feels like
To be alive

I remember that moment real clear
The moment I was born
The moment my soul came here
That's right I remember how pure I was
I could see things straight through the dust
And I could live every day this way
Got love for everybody
So that I can do the sway
And spread some butter all across the dead pan babay
I grew up through school
Learned my mind real good
I learned of what we made in this neighborhood
All the past and the reasons that we made for now
And all the relevance of never making a sound
I learned about it, I tried to fit in
But now I got break out
I want to be on top of it
I wanna, I wanna be alive today...
Track Name: Waves
I told you what I was looking for
When I came up from the bathroom floor
This life is never what it seems
And I'm through with fantasy

Never know where to go
But I know I want to leave
Free my soul, let it go
For everyone in need

In waves it's coming back to me

Lying down upon my knees
The making of my final plea
Say it loud or keep my peace
Get this one last sweet release

Never know where to go
But I know I want to lead
Free my soul, let it go
For everyone in need

In waves it's coming back to me...
Track Name: Whistle Song
I played all my life
A circus on the water
Good times, bad times
They float into each other

No it doesn't seem right
But no one ever said this is goodbye
Hold me and let go
Don't forget that you are alive

I worked all my life
An empire over water
Long time, lost time
Reflections to recover

No it doesn't seem right
But no one ever said this is goodbye
Hold me and let go
Don't forget that you are alive

All the wars inside my head
The reason for my end
And the rising sun depends
On the darkness that I sleep in
Track Name: The Fountain
Like a water
Like a rain
Like an oasis
Or a desert spring
You can hear the music
Whispering
Release the truth you feel you
Had to keep contained

Ancient mystics
Are now simple and plain
Obey the modern system
On the borders of insane
They were raped and pillaged
By the son of a man
Who made a burning village
And a soul of sand

Holding out in all this rain
For tomorrow or today
All the seasons fade away
Older now and nothing's changed

Saw a downtown preacher
In search of fame
Trying to be a teacher
Of the common faith
The truth is told by
The look in his eye
Does he really know it
Or is it a disguise

Holding out in all this rain
For tomorrow or today
All the seasons fade away
Older now and nothing's changed

Got to find the fountain
Get back to the source again
Climb the mountain
Of the world within
Track Name: Box White ft. Leif Olson
Running through these empty halls
Strung out of my mind

Took too long to recognize
Where the demon lies

It looms behind these walls
Entangling our hearts
A ruined beast
Beset by light
Will see us torn apart

On down that broad, broad road
Lies the truth they never showed

We tread
These sterile toils
Lamenting for our loss
A kingdom bathed
In amber glow
Where life and passions cross

We tread
This barren stone
Our hearts and minds ablaze
With visions of
The universe
That lie outside the maze

Without you I can't see me
The stars have a hold of me
They're ripping me
Away from you
Away from me
Help
We will succeed

United we'll take back
Our power to heal
We'll carry the message
We'll gather the masses
We'll get them
We'll get them
