Track Name: Copied Carbon
Copied Carbon

Finding family pictures in my childhood room
I’ve been catching visions of a former youth
Body-snatching me with someone I once knew
From years ago

Innocence has faded out like summer skin
Days are getting shorter and my luster’s dimmed
But there’s a certain comfort in an older light
You’ve got to find

If I was beside myself from years ago
Would we be strangers
Would I be someone he knows
One bit at a time something different grows
Is it a stranger
Or is it someone that he knows

Side-by-side
Another echo ringing from this chime
But a little different every time
Is it someone he knows
Track Name: Our World
Our World

Come on love let’s stay awhile
Forget the world and become masters of denial
I’ll stay forever just as long as I can stay here with you
I’d sell it all to buy a life for two.

All the gold and green in the world
Mean nothing to me
You’re my pearl.

I’ll stand by you
Darling, we’ve got something felt by few
A perfect rhythm like the earth and moon
There’s no other life that I would rather choose
Than one with you.

I’d flood the world and build an ark
If it would mean that we would never be apart
I’d trap the sun just so I would get to see you longer
Without a word
Without a heavy heart

I know I don’t say these things enough
But I can promise you this much

I’ll stand by you
Darling, we’ve got something felt by few
A perfect rhythm like the earth and moon
There’s no other life that I would rather choose
Than one with you.

In our world, we’re the only ones
And our love will go on-and-on
Until we both return back to dust
We’ll see it through to the end
And if we’re lucky we’ll startup again.
Track Name: Young Blood
Young Blood

I was still so young
Only playing war and guns
All ideals, nothing real, nothing yet become

When I saw you standing there
Playing with your auburn hair
All I need is to be by your side

When I’m lost inside
A mystery made from strange design
You make it alright

Lightning will strike twice
If you give it enough tries
Call it fate or it may just be place and time

But that’s neither here nor there
Now that I am yours I swear
All I need is to be by your side

When I’m lost inside
A mystery made from strange design
You make it alright

No need to think twice
There is nothing left to decide
You make it alright.

No need to think twice
You make it alright
When I’m lost inside
You make it alright

I believe that we are meant to be
Side-by-side and we are made complete
You and me.
Track Name: Phantom Lives
Phantom Lives

Misinformation has taken over
What a mess
Hiding in wires, you liars
But you know how to impress the rest

It’s easy to seem sincere
When nobody knows you here
But you will reveal the fool you are
You’re getting in too far

You are an expert in whatever you address
You’re a doctor and a lawyer
And you always know the best

Unless, really you’re just a ghost
Haunting with every keystroke
And all of your talk is just for show

You are a fool
And you’re good at what you do
Playing conman with the truth
To help you feel alive
You are a fool
And you’re breaking all the rules
When you’re playing fast and loose
To help you feel alive

I don’t know how we got this way
I see how we hide our phantom lives offline

You are a fool
And you’re good at what you do
Playing conman with the truth
To help you feel alive
You are a fool
And you’re breaking all the rules
When you’re playing fast and loose
To help you feel alive
Track Name: Russian Dolls
Russian Dolls

Why don’t you come over here
Relive all the times we felt alive
Fade-away the shadows
That always hang around behind the light

I will stay up with you tonight
Leave all my thoughts and cares behind
Just for awhile escape from time
And then we’ll say goodbye

The rat-race that you bow to
The chaos that you fight to make a life
The days you do all over again
A feedback and a noise that numbs the mind

I will stay up with you tonight
Leave all my thoughts and cares behind
Just for awhile escape from time
Before I go

Under it all, we’re so small
When we’re unpacked like the last Russian doll
All other lives subside tonight

I will stay up with you tonight
Leave all my thoughts and cares behind
Just for awhile escape from time
Before I go

We will make the most of our night.
Spend it chasing something sublime
Travel through a hole in the sky
A wrinkle in time
A moment

When everyone is moving apart
And growing up is making it hard
Remember who we were at the start
We give it a night
A moment.
