about

Life Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Track Name: Floating up from the Bottom of the Sea in an Improvised Submarine
When I'm gone
Don't you suffer anymore
When you call yourself assured
You sure are

When I'm gone
I'm home
Track Name: I Plan to Be Forgotten When I'm Gone
When I'm on the road
You know those thoughts ain't so heavy
When I'm on the road
I'm the road

Don't you cry when the sun rises
Don't you cry at the sunrise
Don't you cry when the sun rises
Oh, I always cry
Oh, I don't know why
Track Name: Answer
You called my name
It wasn't what I had in mind
We're falling through the sky
You had the nerve to ask the time
Can't you see the ink in my skin?
Can't you see the state of mind I'm in?
Can't you hear the answer in your question?
Can't you feel the answer when you breathe in?

You get behind the wheel
You drive and dream of new ways to feel
But there's no real change
Cause what you feel, it stays the same
Cause where you are is the only place
The notes, they might get rearranged
But the rhythms never change
And who you are is what you have to face

It may seem dark, but the sun will rise
All you have to do is look into your own eyes
Become a raindrop swallowed by the ocean tides
Become a snowflake, fall upon the polar ice
Become a breath that's blown upon the breeze
Become the soil underneath the trees
Become the mother of eternity
Become the soil, I'll become the seed

(You become the soil, I'll become the seed)
When the melodies are sounding strange
Listen for the silence that always stays
