Track Name: Clouds + Pure Expression + A Moment of Confusion
Clouds:
You'll never know me when there's no one else around
always tone it down when I'm found
and I'll never know you when there's no one else around
but feel free to show me now

stalk the throne steal the crown
play the king, i'll play the clown
like who's laughing now?
Yes it's true, for you they bow
but for me they gather round like clouds
and rain down
like ha ha ha

You wave your hands and spit the law
from between your grinding jaws
but I'm finding flaws
and I'll find em all
stalk the throne steal the crown
play the king, i'll play the clown
like who's laughing now?

Pure expression:
You know I can't help myself
I just love it all so much
Sometimes it's all too much for me
As somber as I seem sometimes
My head is filled with melodies and rhymes
that's why I lose myself
you know I can't help myself
nothing I can tell myself

A moment of confusion:

Excuse me, who are you?
Track Name: Song to Feel Alive
i turn my face to you
just to feel alive
watching you watch the world
i see the world in you
just to feel alive
Track Name: When She Lands
When she lands
everything is gonna be alright
that's what she said
But I don't believe her
Track Name: Synesthesia
I'm yours
You're mine
That goes for all time
Always
All days are ours to keep
And should we choose to sleep?

Since you've been around
All I see is sound
Your body is a symphony
Your skin sings to me

Since you've been around
All I see is sound
And all I hear is light
Somehow that seems alright

I don't know what's gotten into me
All I want is energy
The passes of time
Plays tricks on my mind
And I ain't going back to those old days
Or those late nights with no love
When all I could feel
Was all that was real

And now there's you
Right on cue
A song for me to sink into
Harmonies I never knew
All living in you

Since you've been around
All I see is sound
Your body is a symphony
Your skin sings to me

Since you've been around
All I see is sound
And all I hear is light
Your silence is midnight
Track Name: Chanson
Tell me, do you really love me?
Or is it just a song you sing sometimes?
How do you always catch me in your rhymes?
Track Name: Folding Clothes
Folding clothes
the snapshot in the album hold the pose
just like my fathers before me I suppose

looking in the mirror trying to find the face
not the one i use but the one I chase
and the blood I search for bits of dirt
proof of my birth on this earth

Caribbean soul and American heart
but a black hole tore the island apart
and I've still not seen it to this day
have you ever loved a place
known it in your bones but never touched it

Folding clothes
the snapshot in the album hold the pose
just like my fathers before me I suppose

my lineage in rows of linens all neatly composed
my lineage in flowing visions none of which I chose
a host of ghosts along the coast
propose a toast to no one
my soul tucked in the folds
as I'm folding clothes

picking up the piles and then putting them down
finding myself without letting them down
and the shadow watching over me
what must I become to be true to you?

Give me back my purpose and my past
how can i possess what cannot past?
I can't focus on the task at hand
please just let me sink into the sand
Track Name: Gaea pt. 2 + A Bird Flew By
It's crazy how beautiful the world looks
just before they drop a bomb
I'm sorry that I missed you
I'd been away so long
I promise I was coming back
The ship was nearly docked
then a bird flew by
and the sun dropped

I couldn't see a thing
but I thought I heard you sing

It's crazy how beautiful the world looks
till I turn the tv on
and the news makes me nervous
plus you've bee away so long
so I go to the beach all by myself
you know, just to cool off
then a bird flew by
and the sun dropped

I couldn't see a thing
but I thought I heard the wings
of something rushing up to catch me
I think that it was you
though I know that can't be true

is this the way it ends?
Not with a bang but with a whimper?

It's crazy how beautiful the world looks
even when it's almost gone
I'm sorry that I missed you
We'd been apart so long
but I promise I was thinking of you, only you
just before the feeling stopped
then a bird flew by
and the sun
