Track Name: Grey Matters
Grey Matters born
Eyes to the sky
A gaze unblinking
As he dreams
Father knows and mother cries

Grey Matters born
Grey Matters dies
A clouded line between two sides
Floating soul and freezing mind
Track Name: The Farmer
Hands
Built for the farm
Mop up the floor
Of a burger joint
Sacrifice so his
Son would have a better life

He works for his family
He works for his wife
He works for a paycheck
But all that he makes
Will never replace
The farm that he sold so his
Son would have a better life
Track Name: For A Girl Worth More Than Fifty States
Daisy you make me go
Crazy and I feel
Hazy ‘cause you make me go
Crazy and I feel…

Daisy you make me go
Crazy and I feel
Hazy ‘cause you make me go
Crazy don’t wanna do my
Homework ‘cause I am
Lazy
Da da da da daaa daaa…
Track Name: Daisy
Daisy
You are my eyes when I’m blind
You are my smile when I find
The sun won’t rise without you

Daisy
You are the air in my lungs
You are the tip of my tongue
When words won’t speak without you

It’s an awful lot to process
But it’s just as much to say
I know that it’s not there yet
But I’ll always try to make it
And I hope it will be...

Daisy
You are the salt of my tear
You are my smile when I hear
You’ll never be without me

It’s an awful lot to process
But it’s just as much to say
I know that it’s not there yet
But I’ll always try to make it
And I hope it will be
Daisy
Track Name: The Dreamer
The moon and its sacred halo
Look brighter through daydream eyes
A spirit between the craters
A love on the unseen side

Everlasting dream

In tune with the clouds around him
Rehearsing his romance score
So youthfully optimistic
Above and below the clouds

In and out of sleep
Track Name: Victim Of A Dream
And the voice speaks to him
With fear behind its call
And the words will prove his only fear
If he only hears them all

And as cold, clouding skies
Split to snowflakes and ice
He chases the warmth of white
Through the dark of winter’s eve

Victim of a dream
Track Name: Dawn Of Twilight
She ran from his fate
But the doctor was right
At the dawn of twilight
An end to a life began
As he falls the darkness walls him
In his mind he’s all alone

Silent flakes of snow
Drift from heaven’s pale glow
In the span of a heartbeat
Millions spill down to one
As he falls the stillness calls him
In his mind he’s all alone
