Track Name: Oh My
The sun’s gotta set to rise
Gotta be dead just to be alive
Gotta feel down just to feel the clouds
Gotta be silent to hear when it’s loud

Now in the midst of the night
We all know there’s day on the other side
Yeah, Oh my

It’s gotta be raw first to be cooked
Gotta be a story before it’s a book
You gotta call to talk on the phone
Gotta feel close just to feel alone

Now in the midst of the night
We all know there’s day on the other side
Yeah, Oh my

You gotta cry for your eyes to be dry
Gotta be bored just to be surprised
Humble yourself just to sacrifice
Knowing something better will come more in time

Now in the midst of the night
We all know there’s day on the other side
Yeah, Oh my
Track Name: Yeah, I'm Alive
Now I’m Alive

I choose sunshine

All I gotta do is open up my blinds
No more hiding
No more covering my face
Got all I need in my little tiny space

The world is spinning
In a blue ocean of love
Notice the tiny grass on my feet

To the huge clouds up above
The clouds – I love how they dance
And how they sing
They can rain on me all day or give
me just a drink

Oo I stare a while
Oo At the sunset
Oo The colors are changing
Oo All the time I bet

Oo I feel alive
Oo My heart is unlatched
Oo Been locked too long
Oo Been so unattached

But I choose freedom
Yeah cause I have the freedom to choose
Thought something was wrong with my tracks
Turns out I had on the wrong shoes
Track Name: Ready to Die
One thing’s for sure
That I’m not ready to die
No, not yet
No, not with all this life
You see I can pretend
But I can't lie
And I’d lie if I said
That I was ready to die

To see them pearly gates
Would scare me alive
On that list ain’t my name
No, I’m bound for the other side
To see them golden floors
Or mansions high
Would scare my soul
Cause I’m not ready to die
Track Name: 30 Days
When you walk down that path the clouds turn grey
Yeah, they’ll rain on you most everyday

When you see the ice caps smile wide
When you see them you have 30 days to die

When you find the apple in your eye
You have to try hard not to lose what you find

When the grass grows to your knees so deep
You’ll step on things that you can’t see

And we love what we can’t see

When your eyes are open your mouth gets wide
When they’re open you can fit a lot inside
e’s day on the other side
Yeah, Oh my
Track Name: Lazy Man
Another day

Another dollar
Another reason
To be bothered

And the lazy man fails again

Another riddle
Another rhyme
Another reason
To trick the mind

And the lazy man fails again

Safe to say I don’t belong
Safe to say I don’t belong here anymore

In the distance
Is my desolate deserted soul
Filled with resistance
All for just one nickel

And the lazy man fails again

Safe to say I don’t need you
Safe to say I don’t need you anymore

Another day
Another dollar
Track Name: Try Hard (Everyday)
You try hard
Everyday

You cry hard
Everyday

You live hard
Everyday
