Track Name: Bait and Switch with Mono Stone
Bait and switch

There was a key under the mat,
but you changed all the locks
There was a note deep in your pocket,
but no stamp for the box

I saw a light up in your room,
but your heart was like stone
And though you strayed out of the gloom,
there was nobody home

There was a seed inside the pot,
but no water for the bloom
There was food there on the table,
but no taste in the room

You wore a smile and a little more,
but you cried on the inside
And though you veil all that you feel,
there's no place left to hide

When you turn about face
I can't stay in that place
Switch and bait me
I know that you're cunning

When I find the right pace
It's the end of the race
Bait and switch
is the game that you're running
Track Name: The Silent Spring ft.Emmazen
The Silent Spring

They tell us history is a lesson to learn
Too many times we ignore it
They say the danger is a stranger to burn
Through the seasons they implore it

It doesn't matter how near or how far
The border lands we deplore them
They feed us lies that just won't settle the score
Fail to see that we abhor them

Across the desert a healing wind blows
Now the promise of a silent spring
Though lines were drawn and the borders were closed
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings

They say that fear is the enemy within
Too many times that we have sworn it
From East to West their lies begin to wear thin
The oath I swore I could ignore it

Across the desert a healing wind blows
Now's the promise of a silent spring
Though lines were drawn and the borders were closed
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings

And through the valleys a healing wind blows
With the promise of a silent spring
The lines were cut but no borders are closed
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings

And in the cities a healing wind blows
With the culture of a vital sting
The ties once cut and all borders exposed
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings

And through the desert a healing wind blows
With the promise of a silent spring
The lines once cut and our feelings deposed
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings
Above the cloud the eagle spreads her wings
Track Name: Escape to the Stars ft Andoran on sax
Escape to the Stars

Over the water, no anchor out at sea
Islands will be washed away by change
Climbing up our mountain believing we’re free
Emptiness that clings hides only rage

You’ll see them as they struggle through the years that roll by
You know that they’ll try their best but in destiny they’ll die

But the air is poisoned, so there’s nowhere left to hide
Could we leave behind this empty shell with no pride?

Ever looking upwards it’s the stars that draw us near
If stardust’s what we’re made from then our fate is ever clear

Over the water, no anchor out at sea
Our island washed away by change

Know how we struggled as the light years flew by
Know that we suffered for the dreams we left to die

And the air that we poisoned, left us nowhere else to hide
So, we left behind that empty shell and our pride
Track Name: Sail Me Back
Sail me back

Take me down to the river
Take me all the way out to sea
Chill my heart with the spindrift
Sail the memories home to me

Take a look at the questions
At the questions you have found
Catch a wave without harbour
Where the truth is surely drowned

Yet you know how I wonder
If the truth will be concealed
In the safety of that harbour
That's the time when all's revealed

Sail me back to Uh-huh Town
Sail me back for free
Shake the water from the prow
Sail me back for free

Take me down to the river
Take me all the way out to sea
Chill my heart with the spindrift
Sail the memories home to me

Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound
Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound

Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound
Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound

Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound
Take me to the lost & found
Sail me back to where I'm bound

Hey, hey, hey

Sail me back, sail me back
Sail me back to Uh-huh Town
Sail me back, sail me back

Take me down to the river
Take me all the way out to sea
