Track Name: ThunderTaker
Verse 1:
Where is my next step
I have to know
Al the years of stress
They start to show

I'm breaking like a wave
Against the shore
Everyday I blame myself
I have to let it go

Hard to be in this pragmatic
Corporate overload
I'm lighting like a stick
Against this shore

Chorus:
Cause everyday I spend down under
Someone's walking in my thunder
Gazing in the mirror's wonder
Stretching over against the breaker
Someone new's my thunder taker

Verse 2:
With my best foot forward I'm headed home
Take the current cause I've earned it
Time to let it flow
Take this ship into the sun

Chorus:
Cause everyday I spend down under
Someone's walking in my thunder
Gazing in the mirror's wonder
Stretching over against the breaker
Someone new's my thunder taker

Bridge:
Clouds are overhead
Clear my mind and put to rest
Pink skies at morning
Clouds are overhead
Clear my mind and put to rest]
Sunrise is dawning

Chorus:
Cause everyday I spend down under
Someone's walking in my thunder
Gazing in the mirror's wonder
Stretching over against the breaker
Someone new's my thunder taker
Track Name: Don't Be A Stranger
Verse 1:
Your voice is my favorite song
I forget the words it's been so long
Fading out to waves and space
A crooked smile on my nothing face

Find the notes on my guitar
An open lane in a maze of cars
Time will heal us both somehow
These chords will have to do for now

Chorus:
Don't be a stranger
The phantom pains a clue
This couldn't be any stranger
You're gone and I feel you

Verse 2:
My nerves will be the death of me
Play it off, a love amputee
This roads a lonely night
Given the chance I'd throw the fight

Chorus:
Don't be a stranger
The phantom pains a clue
This couldn't be any stranger
You're gone and I still feeeeeel

Chorus repeat twice
Track Name: Run
Verse 1:

Sweet and terrible like a madman's lullaby
I've only seen this watching sci-fi
Breaking news we're have past dead
In the burning flashing red

Pre-Chorus:
These footprints are too big to be human
Yeah the signs are all around
What wee thought was dead is looming
Sticks are snapping on the ground

Verse 2:
Give these fools enough rope they'll hang themselves
Said the martyr with the spool

These poor folks forgot they're only human
Yeah it's hard to question now
What we thought it dead is looming
The eye of Horus takes the ground

Chorus:
We saw them pointing
Planning where to go
These wicked demons singing undertones
Prepping our planet for a better way of life
But only the chosen get to run

Chorus:
We saw them pointing
Planning where to go
These wicked demons gave me vertigo
Prepping our planet for a better way of life
But only the chosen get to run

Only the chosen get to run.
Track Name: Ctrl+Alt+Del
Verse 1:
Is it a blessing or a curse?
To think it could be much worse
Has our lifestyle become obsolete?

Or updated technology?
Yet were still so lonely
With all these connections,
Then we ever thought we'd be

Breakdown:
Loading the latest trends
Living life behind the lens
Maybe its time, for a media cleanse

Chorus:
Oh we're still learning how to coexist
Take the good and bad and balance it
We are more than what we seem
Than in virtual reality

Verse 2:
All this information
To feel stimulation
But we really know...nothing at all

And endless self-promotion
To fake our own emotions
Trading friends for conversations

Breakdown:
Loading the latest trends
Living life behind the lens
Maybe its time, for a media cleanse

Chorus:
Oh we're still learning how to coexist
Take the good and bad and balance it
We are more than what we seem
Than in virtual reality

Breakdown:
Loading the latest trends
Living life behind the lens
Maybe its time, for a media cleanse
Loading the latest trends
Living life behind the lens
Everything you could ever want
By clicking send

Chorus:
Oh we're still learning how to coexist
Take the good and bad and balance it
We are more than what we seem
Than in virtual reality
Track Name: Smoke & Mirrors
Verse 1:
A little misdirection
Could be your greatest
Deception

When nothing's what it seems
How can you believe?
Another trick up your sleeve
While we're lost in a dream
In the confusion,
The delusion,
All part of the grand illusion
Just smoke and mirrors


Pre-Chorus:
The harder you look
The less you see
Caught up in reality

Chorus:
Make yourself pretty
Make yourself fair
Paint your face
And dye your hair
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all?

Verse 2:
You cloud your judgment with rational
Does it make the illusion
Seem worthwhile?
Easier to justify your means
While we're lost in a dream
In the confusion,
the delusion,
All part of the grand illusion

Pre-Chorus:
Well the harder you look
The less you see
Caught up in reality

Chorus:
Make yourself pretty
And make yourself fair
Paint your face
And dye your hair
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all?

Bridge:
You think it's all a formality
While we're lost in a dream
Just smoke and mirrors

Pre-Chorus:
Well the harder you look
The less you see
Caught up in reality

Chorus:
Make yourself pretty
And make yourself fair
Paint your face
And dye your hair
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the fairest of them all?
