Track Name: Road Tripping
a. air

woke up earlier than i ever would

kissed the cats goodbye

smelled and said you like my scent

working all the time

got gold inside my pocket, living a lie

all the while

breaking habits without the stopping

kick my bucket

i'll be there, just keep up the knocking

i'll be there, yeah


b. sea

my body broke

and it turned all into rainfall

so what did you expect?

a favor left?

I'm selfless when you are rotten

and you're a liar

you are rotten and you're a liar



c. land

open up, young soldier boy.

got patches and guns, but can you tell me what they've done?

I'm kinda far myself from home

and i also miss a girl there, so


well, i can finally breathe the air

(god damn)

and it's beautiful, but god damn!

(soft hair)

I can almost feel her soft hair


I'll kiss her when I'm finally there.

(friendly fire)

so when you get the chance to put your gun down,

(what now?)

will you ask yourself "what now?"?


I say there's love in every city here,

(who won the war?)

and they're all smiling in your hometown


i want to see you smile for me right now!

it can break your bones

when you least expect

with all your friends all fast asleep in bed

the hard times

call for hard drinks, right?

well you got yours

and i got mine

Track Name: Repeat
I do like walking outside in the city,
but the world has made me sick since I was just a little kid
When I lay me down to rest,
I'm a newborn bird in the gutter of your house
Warm in my nest

Who, and wasting
in this plywood?
We are trying to breathe
and she's coughing and crying

Please excuse my hands doing all the talking
The second half,
It was all downhill from there
I can't get up, but I think that it's all that I want for now

I payed her another visit, but she would not come out.
