Track Name: Look to the Future (E39 Wide Eyed Mix)
And when I spread all my fears out in front of me
Little pieces that puzzle me
Buzzing like a swarm of bees
I turn my coat and back away from the maybes and might have beens
Like a mortal enemy
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Life come life goes
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

And when my head and my heart just agree to disagree
The devil and the devotee
Tripping up economies
Breathe in and take a leap across the chasm of modernity
Step back into sanity
With my eyes open wide i will look to the future
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

A look to the future
Gather up the fear then put it in a box
Grab indecision and smash it on the rocks
Push out the doubt and change up all the locks
Track Name: Pretty Chemicals (Brain Vacation Mix by Kyle Michael Porter)
As a pretty little piece of your chemistry
Hijacks its way deep inside of me
With every living cell up and on the run
System lock down and set to stun

But here we are home again
They're coming for me
Here they come here they come here they come
They're running the gun for me

From an island made of plastic adrift at sea
I fortify my biology
Ninety thousand in your army set to attack
Breaking in and no turning back
The path of no resistance is in your eyes
From your trails laid out in the skies
Another line of frack still to be unwound
Sneak another one down into the ground

But here we are home again
They're coming for me
Here they come here they come here they come
They're running the gun for me

Captan, Bromide and PVC
Now your logic is evading me
Hello Maneb Cumene and Propylene
Now your chemicals come for me

Take another hit off your PVC
Another kiss from the PCBs
Your mother-lovin hug is toxicity

Now your chemicals come for me
Here they come here they come
Pretty chemicals
Track Name: Jennifer (Ted Scarlett Remix)
Knee deep she lays her head
On the pillows of her lonely bed
While sleep tugs at the seams
And frays the edges of her broken dreams

And there’s talk, talk, talk in a thousand places
From the voices that time erases
Stone cold she locks the door
While the shadows creep across the floor

Jennifer is that you leaving
When did you stop believing
Heaven knows your innocent ways
Have left you so confused these days

Knee deep she bites her fingers
While the memory of pain still lingers
With hope so far behind
Another drink would surely clear the mind

But there’s talk, talk, talk in the darkest places
From the voices that time erases
While doubt shorts out the wires
Where here conscious and fears conspire

Jennifer who will you trust
To clear away the could of dust
Life’s just a battle and no one has won
Jennifer put down the gun
Track Name: All Night Crying (Sun Arise Remix)
Afraid to sleep, afraid to breathe
One more hardship hard to conceive
There’s a shadow moving over me
So much for life’s vanities

You’re in every corner of the house
Drifting in and drifting out
Little brother, little sun
Caught in wars that can’t be won

Don’t want to let you go
Can you please stay
I need you here
Just one more day

Powers that be do as they please
But I’m making peace with your disease
If I could I crush a thousand stones
I’d feed cure into to your bones

Dream in star light little son
Can’t undo what has been done
Hold you near me as I pray
Until your spirit turns away

All night crying
I’m haunted by you
All night crying
What more can I do

You’ve got to let me go boy
I cannot stay
My things are all packed
And I’m leaving today
Track Name: Happily Sedated (Powered Down Mix by Fafnirrockson)
Look up, power down your cel phone
Line is busy, the call’s not free
Something’s up in the days of plenty
Too many people marking absentee
At a time when you had more money
Smiled and drove along happily
But no matter what your mind is thinking
I can hear you body singing

But if you're happily sedated
In the life that you created
Those who only disagree
Will shut the book and let it be

Get out from under your headphones
Shuffle up from your MP3s
If you want to draw my attention
Open up your mouth, stop texting me
There were days when skies were sunny
But it shifted so violently
No matter what you the future’s bringing
I can hear your body singing

But if you're happily sedated
Thinking life is overrated
Take a page from history
Shut the book and let it be

Haven't you heard your religion's withdrawn
So buddy get your dogma off of my front lawn

Because I'm happily sedated
In a life incorporated
I may not ever come around
But my boots are firmly on the ground

We’re all happily sedated
Life incorporated
Take a page from history
Shut the book and let it be
Track Name: Look to the Future (Golden Fears Mix by It's Gonna Crash)
And when I spread all my fears out in front of me
Little pieces that puzzle me
Buzzing like a swarm of bees
I turn my coat and back away from the maybes and might have beens
Like a mortal enemy
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Life come life goes
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

And when my head and my heart just agree to disagree
The devil and the devotee
Tripping up economies
Breathe in and take a leap across the chasm of modernity
Step back into sanity
With my eyes open wide i will look to the future
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

A look to the future
Gather up the fear then put it in a box
Grab indecision and smash it on the rocks
Push out the doubt and change up all the locks
Track Name: Without You (Ted Scarlett Remix)
Raise your hands up to heaven
I’m reaching out to you
Rest your holy heart in the temple of my hands
I had waited for you
In and out of my life
But lost, the moment has gone away now

All I wanted was to see in your eyes
Someone who cared without compromise
This distant need had eternity aching
In a place where a heart is breaking
I’ve been waiting for you
I’ve been waiting for you

Raise your eyes up to heaven
I’m sanctified by you
Wash my weary soul with the grace of your hands
I’ve been waiting for you
In and out of my life
Please don’t take this moment away now

All I wanted was to see in your eyes
Someone who cared without compromise
This distant need has eternity aching
In a place where a heart is breaking
I’ve been waiting for you
I’ve been waiting for you

Raise your hands up to heaven
I’m reaching out to you
Rest your holy heart in the temple of my hands
I’ve been waiting for you
I’ve been waiting for you

How was I breathing without you
How was I dreaming without you
How was I, now how am I
Something’s keeping the terror in me alive

How was I breathing without you
How was I dreaming without you
How was I, now how am I
Something’s keeping the memory of you alive

Track Name: Never Been To Athens (Stripped)
I'm a man of many words
Though few have been said
I viewed them all perspectively
But hid them away in my head

I've never been to Athens
I've never been to Rome
Never been anywhere that ever felt like home
I never had a compass to show me the way
To the safety of your arms

Tethered to the Earth
In the shadow of my fears
I may have smiled
But I never met their eyes in twenty years

I've never been to Athens…

The wind rises and carries me
To the places I'd dreamt I'd be
I close my eyes, strengthen ties
And see your eyes right in front of me

I've never been to Athens…

I've never been to Venus
I've never been to Mars
I've never been some place
With so many stars
I drift of towards them
And find my own way
Can you see me, can you see me
Track Name: Look to the Future (Slow Motion Mix by It's Gonna Crash)
And when I spread all my fears out in front of me
Little pieces that puzzle me
Buzzing like a swarm of bees
I turn my coat and back away from the maybes and might have beens
Like a mortal enemy
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Life come life goes
No more hiding away
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

And when my head and my heart just agree to disagree
The devil and the devotee
Tripping up economies
Breathe in and take a leap across the chasm of modernity
Step back into sanity
With my eyes open wide i will look to the future
I will look to the future

Bad days have been this way
Sad days have passed this way
Tragic days may come my way
But with my eyes open wide i will look to the future

A look to the future
Gather up the fear then put it in a box
Grab indecision and smash it on the rocks
Push out the doubt and change up all the locks
Track Name: Back to the Stars (E39 Big Dipper Mix)
You brought my life adventure
Enough to fill up this book
Left it in the hallway
If you want to take a look

There was heartache, laughter, beauty and scars
But every chapter has it’s end
I’m heading back to the stars

Back to the stars
The stars are pouring down on me
The universe surrounding me

I really loved to love you all
And all the joy that you shared
Nice to see you all here today
To know so many cared

Nothing better than the times such as ours
Remember nothing ever really ends
I’m just heading back to the stars

Back to the stars
The stars are pouring down on me
The universe surrounding me

Everything circles around and then
Everything circles around and again

May the stars follow you, wherever you are
Track Name: Pretty Chemicals (E39 Bootleg Club Mix)
As a pretty little piece of your chemistry
Hijacks its way deep inside of me
With every living cell up and on the run
System lock down and set to stun

But here we are home again
They're coming for me
Here they come here they come here they come
They're running the gun for me

From an island made of plastic adrift at sea
I fortify my biology
Ninety thousand in your army set to attack
Breaking in and no turning back
The path of no resistance is in your eyes
From your trails laid out in the skies
Another line of frack still to be unwound
Sneak another one down into the ground

Here they come here they come here they come

Track Name: Jennifer (Botany 500 Mix)
Knee deep she lays her head
On the pillows of her lonely bed

And frays the edges of her broken dreams

And there’s talk, talk, talk in a thousand places
From the voices that time erases
Stone cold she locks the door
While the shadows creep across the floor

Jennifer is that you leaving

Have left you so confused these days

Knee deep she bites her fingers
While the memory of pain still lingers

Track Name: The Innocence of Time (Stereotopic Remix)
Time has a secret
And quietly keeps it
Out of reach from you and I
An eventual turn will leave a world to unlearn
And leave the vision far behind

And when my vision starts to fade
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time

It’s hard to believe
Or not to believe
When opportunities fail
The currents are cast
And the tides hold you fast
A ship without its sail

And when my hair starts to grey
I will not question why
It’s just the wind and the rain
Or the ice in my veins
It’s the innocence of time
Track Name: Sirens of the Valley (Shine Remix by Flip)
Woke up this morning to see the sunrise
From your little place upon the hill
Took in the world as if through your eyes
Haven’t forgotten you and I never will

In the air your life surrounds me
From this mountain where you were king
I hear your voice in every melody
When the coyotes of the canyon sing

They sing shine, shine
We rise, we fall
To the world you gave it all
How the sirens of the valley
Will forever miss your call

Fell asleep long enough to dream
And for just a moment you were there
Dancing lightly beside the stream
That carries us all away somewhere

In the air your life surrounds me
From this mountain where you were king
I hear your voice in every melody
When the coyotes of the canyon sing

They sing shine, shine
We rise, we fall
To the world you gave it all
How the sirens of the valley
Will forever miss your call
Track Name: King of the Mountain (Bizzartech's After Battle Remix)
I have rattlesnake blood
Alive in my veins
I will conquer the world
Until nothing remains

Fall in line my soldiers
I need all of your might
One to keep me on my lead
And my guard to the right

I’m the king of the mountain
Monarch of the hill
You may will me to fall
But I’m standing here still

Rush the rattlesnake blood
Lightning flash to the brain
Bring to me the world
All alight with my reign

Push on trusty soldiers
I need all your might
Gather all the things I need
Let the bombs ignite

I’m the king of the mountain
Monarch of the hill
When you give me it all
I am guiding you still

I’m the king
Beautiful king
Merciful king
I’m the king
Track Name: More Than I Do (Stripped)
You lit the fuse then you turned around
Running for glory from higher ground
With a smile doing as you please
To skew the world by a few degrees

Holding back their swollen pride
But they keep the hate inside
It’s a gun in an innocent hand
The baby boy playing the man

You say, you understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why they are my enemy
You understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why I am your enemy

And when your back is to the wall
When you live and give it all
The little girl fallen in her yard
Her father dealt the hardest card

You drop the bombs and start the war
Push the boys and ask for more
It’s the blood on some distant sand
Turns to black beneath the caravan

You say, you understand this more than I do
Comprehend this more than I do
So please explain to me
Why I am your enemy
