Track Name: Everybody
Everybody wants some love in their life

Everybody wants someone to hold their hand
And they want someone to understand
They’re only human and they’re looking for someone to hold

Everybody wants an ear at the end of the day
To listen and take all their worries away
They’re always talking and they’re looking for someone who cares

Everybody wants some love in their life

Everybody wants a word of encouragement
When they tumble into a pit of shit
They’re only looking for someone to keep them clean

Everybody wants someone who will share their dreams
Who will lift them up and won’t be so mean
In a world so cold it helps to hold some warmth

Everybody wants some love in their life

But you don’t need anything it seems
You’ve got your plans and your friends
And they don’t include me
But all I want is you
But you’ve got to much to do

Oh no I think I’ve made a mess

But still I want your love
Track Name: Motion
I wish I were a wave rolling on the sea
Splashing around for eternity
Or as long as god gave me breath
I wish I were in motion

Cause all these thoughts They pull me down again
To the bottom of the sea Where the sunlight ends
And I’m so cold and lonely here
I wish I were in motion

I feel so broken up like a star-filled sky
3-0-0 sextillion glaring eyes
Pierce me from every point
And put my heart in motion

Oh what’s an ape to do with such diamonds thoughts?
You stick them in a song and pray your soul unlocks
And releases you from your mortal womb
And puts your heart in motion

Oh no, I’m a river now
My water is my sound

I’m gonna bury down into the deep dark earth
Plant myself in warmth and lift this awful curse
That clouds me like a half-remembered dream
And put myself in motion

Yes when I am still I’m really fast at work
Moving through dimensions of the highest worth
In my mind though I’m lost at times
I know I’ll find the motion

Oh no, I’m a river now
My water is my sound
Track Name: Different Mind Pt. 1
Ain't got nobody to tell my secrets to
So I put them in a song
And hope the message pours on through

There's a lady that I love
Does she know how I feel?

I mean, I guess I could be a monk in a tree
But I still hope to keep my feet on the ground

Sometimes I think that I should have been

Born in a different time
With a different mind
And maybe then I'd feel fine

Ain't got nobody to call when I'm feeling blue
So I put my tears in a song
And hope that the message reaches you

There's a lady that I love
Well does she ever think of me?

I mean, I guess I could be a monk in a tree
But I still hope to keep my feet on the ground

Sometimes I think that I should have been

Born in a different time
With a different mind
And maybe then I'd feel fine

If I could just talk to you and find out what you think
And know if it was all a dream I had one night
And now it's gone

I'm feeling so lonely waiting and hoping
But never knowing

I wish I could just cut this from me.
Track Name: Different Mind Pt. 2
I wish that I had a different mind
Because I don't like my thoughts sometimes
I wish that I had different eyes
Because I don't like what I see sometimes

I’ve been blessed
I’ve been given less
I’ve got no reasons to complain

But sometimes
Can’t help but fold
When something evil swims into my soul

Some gloomy ghost
That appears
To twist my lonely heart into tears

Then I can’t breathe
And it won’t leave
A sadness so strong it brings me to my knees

But I won’t break no, I never do
But still it’s so damn hard to push through

I wish that I had a different mind
Because I don't like my thoughts sometimes
I wish that I had different eyes
Because I don't like what I see sometimes

I’m so soft inside
I fear I’ll melt if I go outside

All my soul seeps through these holes
I wish that I could plug myself up sometimes

Everyone wears a mask
Where can I find one I ask

They bury down in drink and drugs
But dry inside from lack of love

But love’s all I’ve got to give it seems
It tears me apart til I bleed

I wish that I had a different mind
Because I don't like my thoughts sometimes
I wish that I had different eyes
Because I don't like what I see sometimes

But I’m strong enough it seems to sing my songs
I’m brave enough to peer into my soul
Whether it is black or blue or darker than the darkest night
I shall crawl on through and find my True Will
