Track Name: Theme Park
I hit the wall and it near put me under
Had me swimmin in the deepest end
A heavy fist on my head loud as thunder
Wanted to push me in the garbage can
But then I asked what the hell it all means
Sat down tried to really perceive
And in the mess found the root of the blunder
(Well I've been fuckin my own shit up)

And now I know, We all know
That everything, everything is gonna be just fine
So don't stop, no, welcome home
You know you just made it in time 'cause

CHORUS
My head's like a theme park baby come in
You just might get more than you wanted
Strip down to your skin, let's go for a swim
Never know what you'll find at the bottom, yeah!
My head's like a theme park baby come in
You'll see these walls have been haunted
But theres a story of how this came to be

In the street there's a buzz all around me
And everyone has got it figured in
(Well have you heard about this or that?)
Hearin the news through a Campbell's can
At what point do we unsubscribe?
See the world through our very own eyes?
Do you think you'll ever wake from your slumber
To come and join us in the desert sand 'cause

I know, We all know
That everything, everything is gonna be just fine
So don't stop, no, welcome home
You know you just made it in time 'cause

CHORUS

I write from inside
With only the light from
My limited sight
Will you please release me?

CHORUS
Track Name: Time
Deep in your bones there's a yearning
To burst tearing right at the seams
Can you resist, are you learning
To rely on the worth of your dreams?
Just ask yourself, are you right where you want to be
When the sky falls down?
Sometimes the beauty in the chaos is so hard to see

But this is your life, gotta live it for you
And with this freedom, see it all the way through
You've only one shot, better aim for the moon
'Cause father time won't be waiting, time will only give you the truth

When you're alone, are you breathing
Simply to survive a new day?
Or does every breath have a meaning,
Does it make you want to stand up and say

That this is your life, gotta live it for you
And with this freedom, see it all the way through
You've only one shot, better aim for the moon
'Cause father time won't be waiting
Time will only show you the line you've been playin
Isn't gonna give you the truth
Track Name: Letter
Neither of us expected all of this
And it happened so quickly
And here we thought that we had found our bliss
But now you've run, run away from me
So here I am bewildered, lost, confused
Tryin to sail through the tides
Without a map or guide
Why can't I see your face
Even though it haunts this place?

But still I say baby
I know you're afraid
But I'm still the same
And I won't walk away

Within these walls we laughed and shared our lives
And you told me you love me
But then I saw the fear deep in your eyes
And that love became a one way street
You say that you were trying to spare me the pain
But you know we can't afford to play that game

And I'm sayin baby
I know you're afraid
But I'm still the same
And I won't, I won't walk away
And you tell me darlin
My heart's on the shelf
No I'm not myself anymore
And you said please leave me
I'm no good for you
But you know there's no truth
If I just walk away

I'm ten toes in with no retreat in sight
And you take me to battle
I'm standing here alone on the front line
And the place where you exist
Is only in my mind
Track Name: Mona Lisa
I'd been floatin under water, always in my own way
But when I finally met ya found my route to escape
I've been trying to take my time
But girl you make me want to lose my mind
'Cause you're the Mona Lisa in my picture frame

I can't seem to put you down and my
Heart's beatin can't stop believin
Oh girl, you've got that good good love

CHORUS
You are the one that I feel
And I'm flying higher
Send me your love 'cause it's real
And my heart's on fire for you

The skies are open the sun is shining bright on my face
I've got you stuck in my head, everything in it's right place
Feelin like i got to skip the line
So damn high I think I'm losing my mind
'Cause you're the Mona Lisa in my picture frame

I know I'm addicted now and my
Heart's beatin can't stop believin
Oh girl, you've got that good good good

CHORUS
