Track Name: Inside Out
Hunting For Father: Inside Out

[[Hook]]

There comes a time when one has to decide
To put an end to the fun and games or rot away inside.
When you find out you were sleeping behind the wheel
And it's eating you alive its real, your beautiful on the inside-out.
There comes a time when one has to decide
To put an end to the fun and games or rot away inside.
When you find out you were sleeping behind the wheel
And it's eating you alive it's real you're beautiful on the inside-out.

...side she shows it, inside she holds him dear.
You'd never know it but from afar the scar is closer than it appears.
She holds regret thinking how she could have been a better mother
As if his sinking was a result of her not showing him how to float or swim.
The blame is not to place just know no matter what you did or didn't do
At the end of the day...
Kid's are bound to bruise and misbehave,
No one is raised perfect for we all make big mistakes,
There's not a person in the world who can't call home a hurtful place to live.

[[Hook]]

There comes a time when one has to decide
To put an end to the fun and games or rot away inside.

And it's eating you alive it's real you're beautiful on the inside-out.

She drives a Viper while he rides his bike to her race,
She needs a diaper, he hates his life more than he thinks he loves her pain.
She gets the cool boys, he gets the short end of the stick
Refuses to beat a dead horse but uses each drug she won't take.

Like clockwork to a broken grandfather watch the doctor prescribe
A foster parent to every abandoned monster on the floor.
Mop the ocean up and chase it with a wavy mess
swept under the rug
An aging face is slowly caving in my chest.

The storm is tough to hug away that new found freedom that we chase through a foreigners eye.
Born to adapt to a point of view, right around the corner is the question, is it time?

[[Hook]]

There comes a time when one has to decide
To put an end to the fun and games or rot away inside.
When you find out you were sleeping behind the wheel
and it's eating you alive its real, your beautiful on the inside-out.

On the surface it looks as if the search for worth and fervent purpose
Is a curse but when that certain curtain opens up, rest assured
Injured, learn to love and nurture nature in return
Become a turn for the worst
The next best blessing fits like a glove, inside out.

[[Hook]]

Track Name: Soh-Ya-Me-A-Se
Hunting For Father : Soh-Ya-Me-A-Se

Keep me in your reach when you're going out to sea
There's a compass in your head and it's pointing you to be,
Something that you wish for forever never is more
And the moment that you live is the life you're dying for, (now)

It's all make believe, yeah, they're coming after me, No.
Won't you take me to the stars that are underneath my feet?
This complicated world, it's not how it should be
I'm knocking on a door that doesn't have a key, (now)

Now that we can see it's always been shut down
We can finally close our little eyes and dream
About the way that we were left way before this earth was found
And turned into one giant industry, (now)

You came in the name of your prey
As you try to save your race when you go away the flag
Now you came from the grave to your cave
Like the veins in the snake through the flame in your faith
Now you reign as it washes away
What was built from the ground up, toxic decay
Now who's to blame? What a shame, whose in pain,
What's to gain from this god damn game that we play?

How in the who, what where in the why in the world
Would the sky ever want to be gray?

How in the who, what where in the why in the world
Would the sky ever want to be gray? (4x)

Soh-ya-me-a-Se (8x)

How in the who, what where in the why in the world
would the sky ever want to be gray? (4x)
Track Name: As Good As You.
Hunting For Father : As Good As You

[[Hook]]

I could never be as good as you no matter what I do
It could take a million years or a bottle of clues
I'm following you to where I need to go
It's a powerless move, but I'm so eager to know

Exactly how you figured out how to master such an art
The practice of passion is a masochistic march

I have to give it to you, your happiness has sparked
Such a cabin fever twist of kissing magic in the dark
I'm after you. I know exactly where you hide.
Whether a classroom, a tatoo or the back of my eyes
I'm back, and just in time for a miraculous design
Dancing perfectly on beat while I stand in the back of the line.

[[Hook]]

I could never be as good as you no matter what I do
It could take a million years or a bottle of clues
I'm following you to where I need to go
It's a powerless move but I'm so eager to know exactly

How long it takes to create a song that makes a million moms
Who hated it before say it's wrong to say no, wait
Go to where the small angel hangs grace one toe at a time
On the top of a volcano waiting to pay no mind
To lie too, it's high noon, never mind the die wounds,
It's all in due time, soon, kneel, wide ruin, I'm you.
Haven't you decided that you're a dime fool?
A Slime drool, a crier whose afraid to lie bc no body likes you

I'm after you. I know exactly where you hide
Whether a classroom a tattoo or the back of my eyes
I'm back, and just in time for a miraculous design
Dancing perfectly on people I stand in the back of the line

[[Hook]]

I could never be as good as you no matter what I do
It could take a million years or a bottle of clues
I'm following you to where I need to go
It's a powerless move but I'm so eager to know, exactly.
Track Name: Resourcenter
Hunting For Father: ResourCenter

I know where to go to find green grass to lay in
I know where to go to find a book or some gum
I know where to go to find music to the ears
And I know where to go to find a gun or some drugs
I know where to go to find a hug and some help
I know where to go to find to find shelter and food
I know where to go to find to find God and some don't.
So Imma go and find the homeless man some shoes.

I know where to go to find to find work to make money
And I know where to go to find a friend with advice
I know where to go to find a doctor in power
And I know where to go to find to find silence at night.

[[Hook]]

Resource center, oh where art thou door?
So many exit signs and so little time to waste.
Resource center, oh where art thou door?
It's December and July's at stake.

I can go to the river and find the man throwin bait.
I can go to the pub and watch pull tabs stack
I can drive down the high way and read while I drive,
Whether a map, billboards or the space between the lines

I can help with the garden, I can go get a job
I can dream of an island where we all get along
I can bitch, I can moan, I can strip it all clean
Cash it in at the junkyard or throw it down stream

I can fill up my tank, I can do something nice
I can put it in the bank and I can ruin someone's life
I'll invest in my head and cash out with my gut
Take a couple steps back and look forward to what? I said,

[[Hook]]
Resource center, oh where art thou door?
So many exit signs and so little time to waste.
Resource center, oh where art thou door?


It's September, April, a day full straight to the cop shop
To make a complaint
My neighbor's gone crazy and the baby's awake
The other one mows the lawn as if nothing's wrong
While the garbage man sifts through the recycling crate

We got cardboard, monitors, wires and more
A brand new typewriter and a box full of porn
I got an apple in my mouth and a snake in my hand
I can take a deep breath or just break my way in, I said,

[[Hook]]

Resource center, oh where art thou door?
So many exit signs and so little time to waste.
Resource center, oh where art thou door?

It's the lunar eclipse and the moon looks fake
The earth spins round a ball of fire in the sky
While my day slowly fades into a road to my death
I pack my bags that hang like bats from my eyes
Say a prayer for myself and wish the rest of the world my best

[[Hook]]

Resource center, oh where art thou door?
So many exit signs and so little time to waste.
Resource center, oh where art thou door?

I got the key to life so I guess that I'm okay
I say, Resource center, oh where art thou, door?
I got the key to life so I guess I'm okay.
Track Name: My Coffin.
Hunting For Father : My Coffin

Who says that I'm nothing but my brain? Tell the billion after me
There's still war and the torture's all in vain so forgive my apathy
There's nothing in my coffin
You know there's nothing in my coffin

[[Hook]]

We kill more than we'll ever eat
One day these presents will be king
You know there's nothing in my coffin
You know there's nothing in my coffin

I went down to kiss your mouth but I slipped and I hit your fist
The same things I could live without the same things I wish didn't exist
I'm a wasteful coward, machine, I wasn't meant for this, it wasn't meant for me
But it is what it is, and it's hard to accept, what was never meant to be

[[Hook]]

We kill more than we'll ever eat
One day these presents will be king
You know there's nothing in my coffin
You know there's nothing in my coffin

There's a monk in a musty cave with his eyes fixated on something rare
There's a woman who was raped by a gang of kids who tore her blouse and ripped out her hair
There's a face on the wall and if I face it at all there's no telling how long it'll take
How long will it take for me to fall? For me to be aware and for you to be awake.

There's a consequence to all of this, it'll happen to all of us soon
When the time is right, and the stars are aligned, and the perfect time is out to bloom
Filthy, part in me, the same guilty born in you
Fill the gaps of the moment with the past and paint the future in the corner of the room

Who says that I'm nothing but my brain? Tell the billion after me
There's still more but the torture's all in vain so forgive my apathy
There's nothing in my coffin
You know there's nothing in my coffin

[[Hook]]

We kill more than we'll ever eat
One day these presents will be king
You know there's nothing in my coffin
You know there's nothing in my coffin

You know there's nothing in my coffin (4x)
Track Name: Hunting For Father.
Hunting For Father: Hunting For Father

I don't owe you anything, you're asking me what this is for
This is for the half of me that actually can kiss some more
Opportunity awaits for no one is deprived of it
Copy me, do what I do, it's easy to rely on it.

Half of me is Africa, half of me is trailer park
Gradually the glass machine will happily pull me apart
All boys float the same in California tonight.

[[Hook]]

You know I, you know I came, came hunting for your father.
Did you think anything through? Are you out of your mind?
You know I, you know I came, came running towards your mother
The kick in her stomach I see it in those eyes.
You know I, you know I came, came hunting for you, father
Now I know what to do, in California tonight.

Now in a moment elapsed anything can happen here
You were standing in her stomach open wound and unprepared
Hesitate, the sky did fall, looked him straight, no option now
Now I'm sorry, make a promise, take an option, make a vow.

Taking off my thorn of crowns, everything is picture clear
All the imagery in history is always living here, dead,
By a fossil on a park bench on thirteenth and smith next to his head.

[[Hook]]

You know I, you know I came, came hunting for your father.
Did you think anything through? Are you out of your mind?
You know I, you know I came, came running towards your mother
the kick in her stomach I see it in your eyes.
You know I, you know I came, came hunting for you, father
Now I know what to do, in California tonight.
Track Name: Brighter Side.
Hunting For Father-: Brighter Side

They built these pyramids light as sand
Into a concrete jungle with a mosh pit hand
Thank God damage pinned us all

We got voodoo dolls hanging upside down
By their last nerve, banging on the junkyard walls
Like something's new, tell me what you found.

The fortune teller told me why but I
Didn't listen, I just looked him in the eye
I said, listen here, I don't believe yet

No, I don't need that, and you don't either
Once in a while you just gotta take a breather and
Take off your hat, smile and pay some respect

[[Hook]]

There's Something on the brighter side
Something on the way
The compass says whichever way I choose
Something on the brighter side
Something I've been trying to find
Something that reminds me I'll get through

Something on the brighter side
Something I can taste
The compass says which ever way I choose
Call me aphrodisiac, call me hypochondriac
Either way, I got nothing to lose.

To a foundation that was built amongst a
Dragon's grave, dead leaves and fungus
And a parasite who knows which game to play
They flash that freedom on a fancy screen
And if you got money then the grass is always green
I know what it's worth and I no what Ill pay.

Yeah, and I know it feels like something's wrong
When everything is going right and if it isn't
Then the worst is yet to come.
Nothing ever lasts forever
I could blame a raindrop or adapt to the weather
But either way at the end of the day I'm gone.

[[Hook]]

There's Something on the brighter side
Something on the way
The compass says which ever way I choose
Something on the brighter side
Something I've been trying to find
Something that reminds me I'll get through
Something on the brighter side
Something I can taste
The compass says whichever way I choose
Call me aphrodisiac, call me hypochondriac
Either way, I got nothing to lose.
Track Name: American Pride.
Hunting For Father: American Pride

Everyone's a shooting star
We all will make it to the end
The only new beginning is
The one I spend with all my friends
The trees, the water, mighty sun
The sea, the battle, poison field
All become the reason
For the shadow I know is real.

Growing up is tough as nails
I hope a giant gust of wind
Rushes up against the sails
And pulls us all in by our chin
Whichever way I look at it
Beautiful, tragic
Part of it's on purpose?
But it's usually an accident

Funeral to first breath
Destiny's choice
Hardly enough
But enough to make sense of it boy
One foot in and one foot out
Imma shake it till I see the sharks and then I will be out.

But there's no kidding, life's hard
Especially when you go swimming with no lifeguard
Tomorrow Imma go get it, today I'm gonna sit
till I get in my car and drive myself sick

Imma go, go, fix it up
Imma go go go Imma fix it up (2x)

Imma giddy giddyup, Imma fix it up
Imma go go-getter, Imma fix it up
Imma giddy giddyup, Imma fix it up
Imma, Imma

Compare myself to my father and what is it I find?
I find that he works hard and most of the time, so do I
He can build a house and I can build a song that
Under one roof we can sing with my mom, bet
Watch a young girl eat a big piece of pork
Whether she hasn't ate for days or just the night before
It truly doesn't matter. It makes me want to puke
Like a fast food platter with the ten o'clock news.

These people lost. These people won.
This country gave that country a gun.
I'm sorry to say it, I have to admit
I wish I lived in Europe where no one gets sick
Maybe it's a myth, so forgive me if it is
But from what I heard it's a great place to raise your kids
Then I should leave, right? I know, Don't worry, I will
As soon as we fight cold snow flurries and chills.

Up a spineless fix the machine, blinded, trying to swim up this stream
Remind us that we're dying trying to live the dream
The score is zero/ zero, no side's the winning team

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm me
Where the magazines and TV screens
Tell me who to be.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm safe
From Oxycontin, Adderall,
Klonopin, ecstasy and crank.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
Where most of my time is spent trying to find
The best time for me to leave.
Track Name: K-9 Riddle.
Hunting For Father: K9 Riddle

Ima do it (13x)

[[Hook]]

Imma do it for the time old zero and a primal pretty in love, (in love)
We can do it for 8 high busy with the cake fly fizzy and tough, in us, we trust
Make love in the eye of a hail storm, lie with some pitty and grudge (and judge)
Same time with the K-9 riddle and the stained glass window in cuffs.

I'll make a promise to remain as honest as I can
I paid my homage and I honor everyone who ran
I may be common but her baby comments on the way
My piranha is kinda outta water but can walk on land.

Silent drama is the wrong sort of thing for me
Comma, karma I'm an old time in history
It's a mystery
It's hidden in the imagery
Within the infinity
That divinity is in to me

Tis the season, till the soil
Tip your server, cheers to boyhood
Take the cape off, minor scrapes
Scrape the make-up off and hide your face now

Don't go thinking you're invisible
Show your teeth, soul reach thru the physical
Don't leave, hold me, I'm a criminal
Just know I'm the whole piece, but only a little full

He trusts himself with good intentions to
Change the world but not the direction
It spins, fertilizer, pesticides
pick food on a full moon testify.

I sent an envelope home with good vibes
The news was bad, I question, 'should I have lied?'
But I don't wanna go and do it like that
I'mma navigate through it and remove the thigh fat

Chemicals, that's what amaze me
All around the world there's statues of crazies
They say the Earth is a miracle of life
But what if they're all wrong and just scared to know what's right
Scared to admit it, scared to hang tight
Scared to sit still and scared to take flight
Too scared of the moment, too scared to stay
To know it is to own and to grow is to decay, Now

Imma say it like a mean it, like I have to
No one is a genius ideas repeat past news
Threw a lifeline that was spiked
With a slice of lime then ate alive by a vacuum.

[[Hook]]
Imma do it for a time old zero and a primal pretty in love, (in love)

Track Name: Anniversary.
Hunting For Father - Anniversary


And the old man comes around the bend
With the confidence to tame an aging bull
Said he didn't have no one to hold
So he probably didn't have nothing to do

[[Hook]]
Today is too long for a father to lose his son
Today is too long when a father loses his son.
Today is the one year anniversary, anniversary.

So he made his way down to the grave
On a morning in the spring after the dew
When he closed his eyes he saw his face
But it wasn't the same son that he once knew.

[[Hook]]
Today's too long for a father to lose his son
Today's too long when a father loses his son.
Today is the one year anniversary.
Track Name: Rocking Chair.
Hunting For Father - Rocking Chair


You get nowhere on a rocking chair (2x)
You miss all the beautiful things
When you don't go outside
There's heaven within every moment
That you know you're alive, yeah.

You get nowhere on a rocking chair (2x)
There's no use in fighting a war
That you already won.
We both have survived many storms
With our hope in the sun, yeah.

You get nowhere on a rocking chair. (x4)
Track Name: I'm Angry.
Hunting For Father: I'm Angry


Walking by a window, look at my reflection
Little kids dance at the dance recital.
A hole in my cigarette, a ball out of air
Missed my exit, I'm already there.

Running by a sewer cap, cross the intersection
Little kids play by the playground rules
A hole in my sock, all up in the air
Missed my calling, I'm not in the mood (to care).

I hitched a ride from a truck driver once
On the side of the road where the highway to home
Was a dime bag away plus an old pair of shoes
Tied tight on the wrong kind of primate to owe

Irate with the climate below zero
I make the old hero, Nitrate with no pure gold,
Fear no one but us now,
Suffocate hate with the slow rust style.

Follow me left, now follow me right take two
Steps back fall, 3 strikes fowl...
It's just a matter of time
Before the light at the end of the tunnel makes its way back out.

I opened up the envelope
Slipped it in the back
Pocket, licked the stamp, said a prayer and sent it like I had no option,
A heart to heart
It's good for the head
A walk with a stranger
Is better than a kick to the ribs.

So I licked it and sent it again,
and again,
and again,
and again,
and again.

But I never got the letters so I'm off with the wind
With my soft spots exposed, I'm hard on myself I guess.

[[Hook]]

I'm angry but I don't know why
Not sure what it's about but it's alright
Imma find a better way to figure out
Why this just isn't sitting right.

It's sticking out like I'm a sore thumb
There's something wrong with me
But I'm almost there
And I've already cared enough
to start with a heart full hunger pain.

I'm ugly but I don't know why
Not sure what it's about but it's alright
Imma find a better way to figure out
How to pull this thorn out of my side.

It just sticks out like a poor sport
There's something wrong with me
But I'm almost there
and I've already lived a long enough
Life to short myself of change.

Now I'm mad at her
I'm mad at them
Mad at the drivers
Mad at the mailman
Mad at the moment
Mad at the wind
It's time to do the dishes
And I just want to fly again.

I don't want these responsibilities
I just wanna seek freedom willingly

It's killing me
But at the same time its helpin me realize
I just wanna be a guide,
I wanna feel alive
I want it to be real
I wanna make an honest living
I don't wanna steal. from

Anyone..strawberry fields forever young, is a realistic ideal,
if I could just get it done.

And I will, no doubt in my mind
As long as I have you in my life to remind me
When I'm whining or when I'm outta line please
Just tell me that I'm fine and I'll put it all behind me.

[[Hook]]

I'm angry but I don't know why
Not sure what it's about but it's alright
Imma find a better way to figure out
Why this just isn't sitting right.

It's sticking out like I'm a sore thumb
There's something wrong with me
But I'm almost there
And I've already cared enough
To start with a heart full hunger pain.

I'm ugly but I don't know why
Not sure what it's about but it's alright
Imma find a better way to figure out
How to pull this thorn out of my side.

It just sticks out like a poor sport
There's something wrong with me
But I'm almost there
and I've already lived a long enough
Life to short myself of change.
Track Name: Do What I Gotta Do.
Hunting For Father: Do What I Gotta Do.

So I do what I gotta do
Drink a beer on a Monday afternoon
My potential is rotting in a can
And the devil has got the upper hand.

So here I am, wrestling with the man
In the mirror running through my head
Disappear and reappear again
Now it's clear that I'm already dead.

So I do what I gotta do
Smoke a joint and laugh at me and you
Watch the people as they walk on by
I'm so happy I think that I could cry

And When I do, it'll all come out
I will prove that I can be myself
Disappear and reappear again
Now it's clear that I'm already dead.

So I do what I gotta do
Put a band-aid right over the bruise
Plant a seed and leave it to the wind
If it grows I hope to see it live.

And here I am, mother nature's child
With a problem that I could never solve
I could be anything I want
but today I think I'd rather not.
Track Name: Lie to Someone You Love.
Hunting For Father: Lie To Someone you Love

[[Hook]]

Build muscle over pinched nerve
Drive through a red light for fun
And you will find that it always hurts worse
To lie to someone you love. (2x)

Farm boy went city
Caught a cold heart
Bought a sports car pretty

Quite nifty with his hands and such
Been a mechanic since his dad was young
Voted MVP by his mother
Most Valuable Person yet to be discovered
By who?
By the ones down the street
Who capitalized off of the young kids in their sleep.

She always asked him, 'What is it you're up to?
Not because I don't trust you, because I love you'
His response was most often numb
Holding behind his back both toxic gloves.

Meth lab in a sleeping sheep's field
Where the asteroid hit the day that those beans spilled,
Heat filled up his heart like a light bulb
Shatter in the distance the minute that that ice melted.

[[Hook]]

Build muscle over pinched nerve
Drive through a red light for fun
And you will find that it always hurts worse
To lie to someone you love. (2x)

They picked him up
Eight days later
From the hospital with third degree burns.
It hurt to bathe.
He swore he heard his grandfather turn in his grave.

His dad asked him 'why?'
He just looked out the window, held his breath and cried.
He wasn't sure why he made the decision he made,
But it was time to confess his lies.

[[Hook]]

Build muscle over pinched nerve
Drive through a red light for fun
And you will find that it always hurts worse
To lie to someone you love. (2x)
Track Name: Thank You Energy.
Hunting For Father: Thank You Energy

"Sure! Hi, yes, I would like to thank all those people who helped me in my 25 short, long lived life on earth on here, on here or over there, and it's all just a matter of time before the sunflower meets that!"

Alright, yeah,
Now, I'd like to thank you all for having such an effect
On the world in which I live
Now, you can call it a mess
If you want to
But you don't got to
Me, I prefer the connection
That I make with all of the things outside of me
That become reflections of myself
And what I've been called to learn for as long as I shall live.

'Til death do me apart from the ego
Filled up with that evil sin
Some say it makes a difference to think about what you consume
Other people just live their life as if we're already doomed
It's in my nature to replace all of those wars with love
But important with the fact that I wanna run
Run, run, run run run run run, but look, look,

Some criticize those for not acting like they should
Distracted by the judgment and attached to what they push
Now, you can fight against the beast or you can hug a willow tree
But either way, rain or shine, that pain will find some guilt to feed.

"There are more of course, but we won't go into that now."
(There are more of course)

It's filthy when it's polished and it's perfect when it's scarred
No wonder why the conflict we call monster never lost it's heart
When I stop and think about it, I'm already off the mark
Lost inside the space between myself and my idea of making art.

Making love, making friends, no doubt I make a difference
There's positive and negative effects of my decisions
And although my dreams are selfish, I hope you can relate
May my attempts at being honest resurrect the fact I'm fake.

Tie my pretty pink poodle to a post, I'll make a pledge
To never lose the open mindedness that I possess
And if I do, close down shop and leave, please
Tell the others it's an uphill battle with a trick up it's sleeve.

But given the current circumstances and present state of mind
I'll be damned and surprised if they can penetrate my spine beliefs
But if you happen to catch me preaching the so-called truth
Tempt me, call me a liar, gently, press me for some proof.

I'll be more than happy to construct a new safe escape
My answer will most likely end in, "all energy changes shape."

"There are more of course, but we won't go into that now."
(There are more of course but we won't go into that now.)

So whether volunteering time at the local nursing home
Or changing someone's flat on the side of the road
It's always up to me and it's always in my control
Whether or not to serve those around me, you know?

And hopefully the times when I do it's rooted out of joy
And not just an obligation that feels impossible to avoid
So I'm happy when I'm here to help and I'm sorry when I'm not
But changing someone else's life is such a complicated thought.

"They dance along the waters top and try to make friends with the heads that bob above the water."
Track Name: Sharri and Chris.
Hunting For Father: Sharri and Chris

With your dad at my house on the couch had the flu
First sight , Julke's steps walk to Mandi's steps at 2:00.
Tickle tickle, first spark, giggle chuckle, first kiss
On the roof, on the couch, to the cabin, candles lit

Party time, heartbreak, car crash, Kelly's death
Family time, back together, hotel, November 2nd
Pool table, gentle rain, close to you, close to me
Reach God, Greg Boyd, Duke dies, smoke some weed

Chris goes to college town, cool kid goes to jail
Independent Sharri lifestyle, Oregon trail
More school, educate, life back in order
Quick start, meditate, Face Candy, Abzorbr

Rap scene, town home Sharri Angie, Mow Grass
Making money, making songs, making plastic, Hope it lasts
No God, not sure, Eyedea, best friend
What to eat, how to sleep, who are we, when will this end?

Woodbury, long walks, two beds live together
Spinach, rice, millet, beans, new friends stick together
On tour, making jewelry, Costa Rica, Kristoff Krane
Teaching students in school, in love with photography

Rent high, long drive, gas price, back home
To your dad's basement, same place we let it grow
Cleaned up settled in, village nest Kelly time
Dad's sick, California, Muir woods, we felt alive

Now it's wedding prep, kiss the bride
Honeymoon, no rush
Make it last, in the past, in the moment, old us
New you, new me, knew we would be together
How long will this last? You and I will be forever.

It was just ten years ago when I touched that collarbone to say
'Hi, my name is Chris,' and there's no doubt in my mind
That we won't grow old and grey
For as long as we exist
With our kiss
Having fun with life
Doing what we can as we exist
With our kids
Having fun with life." (x2)
Track Name: Here I Am.
Hunting For Father: Here I am + No Where Found (Bonus Track)

Here I am,
As Broken as the day they brought me in
Soaking wet, connected to my mother by some skin
In a foreign world I've never seen before, before.

Soon I'll see,
Nothing's ever truly what it seems
They opened up my head and put in things that I didn't need
To get back again, before...

[[Hook]]

And I'll wait for you here under the sun
Waiting like my life had just begun
Burning all my memories
Saving room for love, for love

Here I am,
As perfect as the day they brought me in
Complicated combinations bend me in to outer space, I'm so afraid...
to look in.

Soon I'll see
Nothing's every truly guaranteed
They Gave me every reason I should leave
I refuse to go, this is my home, before

[[Hook]]

I'll wait for you here under the sun
Waiting like my life had just begun
Burning all my memories
Saving room for love, for love

There's a place in my mind where the miracles burn at the seams
If everyone dies, what is life, and what does it mean?
Every time someone cries there's a smile somewhere in between.

Numb, under the sun.

HIDDEN SONG LYRICS: FOUND

The angels appeared right in front of him right before he shut his eyes
When you wake up in the morning get on your horse, click your heels and say goodbye.
Now all day long he was dealing with a feeling that he tried to work around But every which way he looked there it was nowhere to hide, nothing was found.

Found…
Nowhere found,
nowhere found.
Found. Nowhere found.
Nowhere found.

Mr Anderson don't like no strangers comin around this neck of the woods, This part of town. Oh my.

A part of me knows that I should go back
But a part of me knows that if I try that I would never find what it is I need to find.

Why? Cause I'm bound. Nowhere bound.Nowhere bound.

Now on my way I seen families working just to maintain a peace of mind (peace of mind, peace of mind, peace of mind.)

On my way I see thieves trying to take what the family had like "Now this piece is mine!"

2x This piece is mine.

Nowhere found (6x)

I met a middle aged man in an apple orchard and he showed me the key to life
He said 'Everything happening outside of me is a reflection of what's inside.'
So I asked this man who turned into a ghost, 'So this is all on me?'
He said 'No, silly duck, its on all of us to turn the rock back into the seed.
He Said 'A couple of years back there came a time where our kind was faced with a choice:
One option was we could gain the awareness of how to experience joy,
But with that joy there comes a catch and one you can't catch with a net'
He said 'if you get that joy it we'll be destroyed.'

Look What we found,
Nowhere found (8x)

Before the deal was said and done, sealed and locked away,
We were living life at an even keel, and we never got angry.
But once we learned our right and wrongs our impulse was to revolt and judge
And then, then came the disease.

Now believe me or not there was a time where everyone was more divine, and the connection, as apparent as the stars
But with the selfish defense mechanism, due to the fear of death
it seems as somehow we forgot who we are.

Look what we've found...
Nowhere bound (2x)
(Yeah)
Now I've found
Nowhere bound (2x)

Now next on the path she was wearing a shawl,
Couldn't see her eyes, barely nothing at all, I said 'Excuse me ma'am, how can I help?'
She said 'Have a seat. Glad to meet you, seems to me like you're having issues with being happy son, but it's not your fault.'

The instant that she touched my hands, her vein like a train ran up my chest and in my heart a choir sang in tune
It was the first time for a very long time that I felt alright, I felt alive and I knew that something had just grew
She said 'You knew" I said 'Im new?'
I always knew.

Now I'm found (3x)
Nowhere bound (4x)

So I walked my horse to a stream that reminded me that everything winds up in the same spot,
In the exact same spot that everything was before
And with every spin that the earth goes round depending on its distance from the source
That puddle at the bottom rises above the ocean floor.
All these creatures all around me breathing one another's air, some creatures think before they breathe
Some creatures clearly do not care, and I cried when I seen that lion tear that baby deer into shreds and stubs
'Til I watched it bring back to the dead and share it with the little cubs.

Now I'm found.
Nowhere bound. (5x)

Last interaction that I had before I made it to my destination,
Was with some tree that somehow learned to talk
(Imagine that)
It said 'life goes on to the same degree that your roots reach deep to the seasons need
With the freedom's breeze, your leaves will all fall off.'

(Yeah it said)

It said life goes on 'til it can't no more in a pattern made in a spiral form
And everything is bound to meet again
And when we listen to the voice we know from an angel's lips through a stranger's skull
We'll find out how that old beginning ends.

And we'll be found.
Nowhere found, nowhere bound.
We'll be found, nowhere bound, nowhere bound.
Yeah, we'll be found, nowhere bound
Nowhere bound, ooh
Yeah, we'll be found, nowhere bound
Nowhere bound.
