NO TURBULENCE (HOME)

Up 30,000 feet, got on a plane to fly
Long-wait stuck to my seat
Away from paradise
Ready for concrete
Grey streets and skylines
I landed on my feet, but I didn’t read the signs

Now I know, just where to go
Every time the wind blows… (the wind blows, the wind blows)
Now I see, as I get older, it’ll always take me home
(Take me home, Take me home)

I know just what you’re doing
You wanted me to stay
It’s not my fault you’re provin
Why it has to be this way

I know you think I need you
But I can make it on my own
That’s why my flight is leavin’
I was already Home.

Already home

I was already half way back to myself, a trip to last a life
Half-way back from the dead, no turbulence in sight

Then somebody told me, ‘always jive with the city’
cause I can’t make it work – this place just won’t jive with me
I’m not a country boy, I was born in the city
But even if you had good intentions, it wouldn’t be pretty

Now I know, just where to go, every time the wind blows… (the wind blows)
Now I see, as I get older, it’ll always take me home… (Take me home, Take me home)

I know just what you’re doing
You wanted me to stay
It’s not my fault you’re provin’
Why it has to be this way

I know you think I need you, but I can make it on my own, That’s why my flight is leavin’, I was already Home

Home

I was already home

I was already half-way back to myself, a trip to last a life –
halfway back from the dead, no turbulence in sight

DISGUISES

It’s amazing, this place that we call our own
It’s a haven, it gives us a space to call home
It’s been mine before but it never felt warm
Only since the day you saved me from the storm

You are my shelter, my love and my helper
You reach through the dark just to touch my heart
I know it’s still new but you know what you’re doin’
I’m nothin’ without you there’s somethin’ about you

You are the light of my life the reason I fight again
You are the reason I stay I’ll never run away

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

Did it most of my life trying to get past the lies
Comin’ home to surprises and weak disguises
I know life ain’t fair and I try not to care
I knew I deserved more, this I know for sure

But with you it’s not the same cause to you it’s not a game
Was so tired of confusion, Mistakes and delusions
But ready for love, lessons learned from messin’ up
I may always be weaker but my heart’s a keeper and

You are the light of my life the reason I fight again
You are the reason I stay I’ll never run away

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

Comin’ home to surprises and weak disguises
I know life ain’t fair and I try not to care
I may always be weaker but my heart’s a keeper and
Hey-yeah-yeah

Yeah, I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3) Hey-yeah-yeah

You may run away from this love,
but I’m not runnin’ away from this love

I’m not runnin’ away-eh (x3)
Hey-yeah-yeah
So why you runnin’ away?

WATERFALL

Feelin selfish lately, feel like my life ain’t mine
You used to call me baby all the time
You made it count – You made me cry…
I can spot the love, but I can’t spot the lies

I’m alright without my father
Cause rivers always flow to a body of water
What happens when the ocean swim gets hard?
Will there be a waterfall? Will Atlantis fall?

I’m drowning in the ocean
Life was over soon as it begun
To tell you the truth, I’m alright with you
It ain’t hard to tell I’m not alright with myself

Now it’s a memory
Nights are getting cold
Picture’s fading
The wrong story’s gettin’ told
I’m not evilI did my best
And you may not need me
But we were blessed

And I’m alright without my lover
Rivers always flow to a body of water
What happens when the ocean swim gets hard?
Will there be a waterfall? Will Atlantis fall?

I’m drowning in the ocean
Life was over as soon as it begun
To tell you the truth, I’m alright with you
It ain’t hard to tell I’m not alright with myself

I’m not alright with myself (Right with myself) Ooh
You don’t know me that well…

I’m not alright with myself (Right with myself) Ooh
That’s why Atlantis fell…

I’m drowning in the ocean. Yeah…

And I’m alright without my lover (Ooh)
Cause rivers always flow to a body of water
What happens when the ocean swim gets hard?
Will there be a waterfall? Will I be a waterfall?

LUCY LU

Lucy was a bad girl, always tryin’ to get away
She never understood how she made it to this place
She got demons, just like anybody else
But she’ll never find peace, cause she don’t love herself

Now she strugglin’
She wants for nothing
Never satisfied
Never stay high
Feeling guilty in the night time
Always lookin for the answers in the night sky

Lucy was a bad girl, always tryin’ to get away
And you could tell just from the look upon her face

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Lockin’ down with her face in a frown
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Walking round with her head to the ground
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

What did you do?

Lucy was alone and she needed to get paid
Guys never understood how she made it to that place

Now she strugglin’
She wants for nothing
Never satisfied
Never stay high
Feeling guilty in the night time
Never looking for the answers in the sunlight

Lucy was a bad girl always tryin to get away
And you could tell just from the look upon her face

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Lockin’ down with her face in a frown
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Walking round with her head to the ground
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

What did you do, do to the girl…
Girl that I knew, girl that’s inside…
You can be true, true to the world…
If only you come alive

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Lockin’ down with her face in a frown
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

Wandering eyes, lost and found
Walking round with her head to the ground
Lucy Lu, what did you do?

What did you do? What did you do?

BROTHER

You have so much to give, it’s true
I know that they don’t see the best in you
But they don’t know you like I do
(Like I do, I do, I do)

You are someone who showed me things
Like all of my favourite people who sing
You have so much to bring, it’s true
(It’s true, It’s true)

I can tell that you’re tired of the life you’ve lived I can see it in the look in your eyes
I can tell that you’re growing up, growin tired of the things that you despise
I can tell that you’re watching that clock, wonderin’ how you’re ever gonna turn back time
I can tell that you’re scared, but don’t worry, cause I’ll always be your brother and you are mine

I can tell that you’re lookin for the chapter of the book, that’s gonna bring you back to life
I can tell that you wanna be the voice, for all of the kids who wanna press rewind
I can tell that you never had a chance to say all the things that are on your mind
I can tell that you’re scared, but don’t worry, cause I’ll always be your brother and you are mine

Sometimes life doesn’t make sense
So most of us just play pretend
Sometimes that makes the most sense (I guess, I guess, I guess)

One thing I do know for sure
You’ve always had an open door
And that’s worth so much more
(More and more and more)

I can tell that you’re tired of the life you’ve lived. I can see it in the look in your eyes
I can tell that you’re growing up, growin tired of the things that you despise
I can tell that you’re watching that clock, wonderin’ how you’re ever gonna turn back time
I can tell that you’re scared, but don’t worry, cause I’ll always be your brother and you are mine

I can tell that you’re lookin for the chapter of the book, that’s gonna bring you back to life
I can tell that you wanna be the voice, for all of the kids who wanna press rewind
I can tell that you never had a chance to say all the things that are on your mind
I can tell that you’re scared, but don’t worry, cause I’ll always be your brother and you are mine

You have so much to give it’s true… I’ll always see the best in you

I can tell that you’re tired of the life you’ve lived. I can see it in the look in your eyes
I can tell that you’re growing up, growin tired of the things that you despise

NEVER BE THE SAME

You are my heartbeat
Forgive my problems
You’re a soldier
I just divide ’em

My baby listens
I’ll stand beside him
What I was missing
Lies deep inside him

Should’ve known it all along
Never nothin’ for you to prove’ and I
Could’ve had this all along
Never brave enough to clue in, I

Should’ve known it all along
I was never one to read the signs
Would’ve never wrote this song
If I didn’t believe it’s mine

In the middle of the night
Catch myself feeling wide awake
Always sleep with one eye open
don’t wanna make the same mistakes
Holdin you I always wonder
Does he ever feel this way?
Then you kiss my eyes to close them
I will never be the same

I will never, I will, I (x3)
I will never be the same

I will never, I will, I (x3)
I will never be the same

Been a long time
bein’ without you
But I held up,
It was a breakthrough

Never knew love
Never wanted trust
But I’m holding you
And that’s what I’m scared of

Should’ve known it all along
Never nothin’ for you to prove’ and I
Could’ve had this all along
Never brave enough to clue in, I

Should’ve known it all along
I was never one to read the signs
Would’ve never wrote this song
If I didn’t believe it’s mine

In the middle of the night
Catch myself feeling wide awake
Always sleep with one eye open
Don’t wanna make the same mistakes
Holdin you I always wonder
Does he ever feel this way?
Then you kiss my eyes to close them
I will never be the same

I will never, I will, I (x3)
I will never be the same

I will never, I will, I (x3)
I will never be the same

In the middle of the night
Catch myself feeling wide awake
Always sleep with one eye open
Don’t wanna make the same mistakes
Holdin you I always wonder
Does he ever feel this way?
Then you kiss my eyes to close them
I will never be the same

In the middle of the night
Catch myself feeling wide awake
Always sleep with one eye open
Don’t wanna make the same mistakes
Holdin you I always wonder
Does he ever feel this way?
Then you kiss my eyes to close them
I will never be the same

MONSTER

I was only seventeen when the darkness followed me
Into the night, into the trees
Where my hollow heart screamed
I had weathered, I had seen
All the answers to the mysteries
Illuminating my soul, I was given full control
I was scared I was possessed, invisible to the unblessed
I could scream from out my chest never to be like the rest

Out from under I came, rose above all of my pain
I broke free I made my bed, now I lay in the pool I bled
I knew love some time ago, but it’s time now I let it go
No more lies I release myself, I am not the things I’ve said

I’m a monster
Will you still love me? Can you still love me?
Oh, I’m a monster
Will you still love me? Can you still love me?

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – but the thing you’ll never see

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – But the thing you’ll never believe
Oh, I’m a monster

I was barely 23 when the night had set me free
All the things that I believed were manifesting themselves to me
It was magic in my hands – finally I could take a stand
But I fell down in shame, and all this power was to blame

I knew not what was right for me
Wished for things that I shouldn’t see
Make a wish to change the world
See it change in the way it swirls

Out from under I came, rose above all of my pain
I broke free I made my bed, now I lay in the pool I bled
I knew love some time ago, but it’s time now I let it go
No more lies I release myself, I am not the things I’ve said

I’m a monster
Will you still love me? Can you still love me?

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – but the thing you’ll never see

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – But the thing you’ll never believe
Oh, I’m a monster

Step outside just to get away, find myself in another place
All those visions I had were all around me in the emptiness
Realized I was led astray, no second chances for yesterday
Now our future’s paved in gold, to walk upon and to never hold

I’m a monster
Will you still love me? Can you still love me?
Oh, I’m a monster (Oh)
Will you still love me? Can you still love me?

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – but the thing you’ll never see
(Yeah)

I try to love, I try to be
Like the rest of humanity – But the thing you’ll never believe
Oh, I’m a monster

UTOPIA

Are you ready?
To face what you’ve done?

You can get lost in the rhythm
This is your decision
All it takes is one incision
Did you listen?

Where’d you go?
This is your mission
I’ll find you in the kitchen
Panicking for the stitching
But you gon’ glow white and glisten’

“Wake up, you’re okay
These dreams can destroy ya
At least you are safe
In our Utopia…”

“I’m not gonna wait
Cause I’m here to show ya
The bigger mistakes
Came before Utopia”

You want Atlantis but it’s all in your head
You wanna make it without making your bed
They want you now but they want you dead
Better break bread, Better break bread

Nobody’ever gonna come back for ya
This is our Utopia

This is Utopia

I’ve been lost in my visions
I’ve made bad decisions
But what’s a worse position
Than the hell of illusion?

Baby, this is my mission
I’m not one for a cushion
Panickin’ for the stitching?
Baby, blood is what you’re missin’

“Wake up, it’s okay
These things can destroy ya
At least you are safe
In our Utopia…”

“I’m gonna stay
Cause I’m here to show ya
The bigger mistakes
Came before Utopia”

You want Atlantis but it’s all in your head
You wanna make it without making your bed
They want you now but they want you dead
Better break bread, Better break bread

“It’s time.”
“Time for wha… Where am I?”
“You’ve had ample time to run… you chose not to.”
“What do you mean? Let me go!”
“There’s a consequence for every action”
“This must be some kind of mistake”
“For every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction”
“Let me go, what the hell are you talking about?”
“Welcome to Utopia”

You want Atlantis but it’s all in your head
You wanna make it without making your bed
They want you now but they want you dead
Better break bread, better break bread

You wanted magic but it’s all in the stars
Nobody’s gonna give you all the keys to Oz
Nobody’ever gonna come back for ya
This is our Utopia
This is our Utopia
This is Utopia

I WONDER

“I pledge my allegiance to the flagOf changing values I never had”

Some people leave their doors unlocked
Just to make it feel like home for the guy in the park
So he can get a shot at all the stuff they got
And that Bugatti’s nice, left the keys beside the glock

Sometimes I wonder how they get along in life
It’s like they’ve never seen no evil or strife
I can tell you’ve never had to worry at night
If you were gonna live to tell a tale to your wife

I wonder,
If they’ll ever hear the lightning or the thunder
They can’t feel the pain of their own hunger
Don’t they know that they are just a name? A number…

I feel like they won’t see it comin’ in the daylight
Like puppets on a string and it don’t feel right
Someone tell me this is just a game – I’m still waiting for the real thing

Some people vote for leaders they don’t know
Familiar face should win it cause they seen him on a show
Never mind his manners, or the places that he goes
Cause he’s always cheating on his misses with a (ho)

Let’s ignite the circus with the wreckless insane
Another lie told, just another click away
Keep on working hard, spend your money at the bar
Maybe if we work hard, this will all just go away

I wonder,
If they’ll ever hear the lightning or the thunder
They can’t feel the pain of their own hunger
Don’t they know that they are just a name? A number…

I feel like they won’t see it comin’ in the daylight
Like puppets on a string and it don’t feel right
Someone tell me this is just a game – I’m still waiting for the real thing

“I pledge my allegiance to the flag
Of changing values I never had
We have our reasons to be mad
They wonder why good boys go bad…”

I wonder,
If they’ll ever hear the lightning or the thunder
They can’t feel the pain of their own hunger
Don’t they know that they are just a name? A number…

I feel like they won’t see it comin’ in the daylight
Like puppets on a string and it don’t feel right
Someone tell me this is just a game – I’m still waiting for the real thing

“Why are you locking the door? Nobody’s gonna break in… This is Utopia!”

GLOW

We used to be free, we used to be wild
We used to look at each other with a smile
Remember the days? When life was alright?
Our biggest worry is if cars would fly

We wondered about all the love that this life would bring
We’d get excited about the all the little things
Somewhere along the line we got lost
Now we take photographs of nothing but us

Light up
You gotta let it glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
I know you wanna glow, glow, glow, glow

Not everybody feels the greatest and we’ve endured
All the hate for so long from humans like us
But the truth is no matter how we dress it up
There’s nothing in the world except people like us

If we’d open our eyes we’d see nothing new
Just a body of dreamers making history like you
If you knew how much power one little light has
You’d stop for a second just to help someone stand

Light up
You gotta let it glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
I know you wanna glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
You gotta let it glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
I know you wanna glow, glow, glow, glow

It’s a beautiful life
Don’t forget this is earth
And no matter what
Always know your worth

Don’t forget you’re alive
Be grateful each day
We made it here
So can we stop the hate?

Ooh-ooh

Light up

(Light up)
Light up
You gotta let it glow, glow, glow, glow
(Light up)
Light up
I know you wanna glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
You gotta let it glow, glow, glow, glow
Light up
Ooh

MY LIGHT

Sometimes I’m thankful when I start my day
Sometimes I don’t know the right things to say
Though this road is long and the journey home
Always makes me feel so overgrown
At least I know I won’t always be alone

It was turnin cold when I met you, though
10 CDs and a radio – You were beautiful, this much I know
No picket fence or a patio
But all I see is beautiful
All I see is treasured gold
If only I could help you grow
So you could see just what I know

You are love, you are my light
I’ll hold you closely day and night
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause everything in life is bright

You are love, you are my light
When I’m with you I feel alright
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause now everything feels right

Sometimes I wonder why it took so long
For me to have a reason to sing this song
Though the road is long and the journey home
Always makes me feel outta control
At least I know I won’t always be alone

Cause you need me like a heart needs a beat
And I need you like a house needs a roof
We can be whatever we dream
I can do it all with you

Cause all I see is beautiful
All I see is treasured gold
I’m so glad you believed in me
Now you see just what I know

You are love, you are my light
I’ll hold you closely day and night
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause everything in life is bright

You are love, you are my light
When I’m with you I feel alright
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause everything in life feels right

People can be be fickle -I like my burger no pickle
But I love every single thing about you
You laugh when I tickle you and your heart is so big
And you sing so beautifully in a mic too
You listen and pick out all of the things I can’t make out
Every single thing makes sense with you
This is our story, it’s written by us and for us
And that’s what makes the chorus feel so true

You are love, you are my light
I’ll hold you closely day and night
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause everything in life is bright

You are love, you are my light
When I’m with you I feel alright
You let me in, and I’m glad you did
Cause everything in life feels right

Ooh, everything in life feels right…
Mmm, everything in life is bright.
