Track Name: Repeat Pattern
Lyrics by David Leviten
I don't know where you're going
I don't know where you've been
I just know that you're playing that same game again

I don't know what you're feeling
Are you up are you down
You're just repeating a pattern that keeps coming back around

I don't know what you're thinking
I don't know what to do
Maybe I just need a different point of view

I don't know how to please you
Doing this doing that
Both my mind and my body are caught in your culdesac

I don't know if we'll end this
Sing me a lulabye
Then I'll lay me to rest and let this pattern die
Track Name: The Knife
Lyrics by Gina Seal

Why this climb, this grateful, this slide, this cutting of the knife
It makes me whole, examine my soul, and share it outright
To walk this line, of feeling inside, and give it to the fold
Manage the fire, humanities lies, the wicked things untold

I see fire
I see strife

Protect the meek, with cinderblock feet, take on the wild fire
Hurt and pain, pushing the vane, maybe to inspire
Feel the wind, the whispering spin, forcing you to fly
Take the stand, it’s lasting the plan, the body says good bye

I see peace
I see disease

The cutting of the knife
The cutting of the knife
The cutting of the knife

Risk it all, just push it and fall, every wave to try
Feel the flight, you’ll make it in spite, the images of time
All of us, feeling Confucius, pushing toward one mind
Feel the knife, the loving and strife, because it’s all entwined

I see the price
I see life
Track Name: Break the Spell
Lyrics by Gina Seal
I live in a dichotomy of pain and alchemy
Where I long so desperately to be set free
By the sweet seductive tone of his voice
I rise in a steady gate toward my choice

Yet I love, the most dangerous of souls
I am drawn to them like a child alone
The tainted man in his darkest hour
Only he understands isolation and power

Ah ah ah ah x2 Break the spell

Love so deep it’s like a crushing wave
Violent, persistent, reaching but to save
Our wild hearts and tainted souls
From the world we both devastatingly know

I want to bathe in the purity, my love is white light
Yet I offer it to the dark, beholden to my plight
To gamble with my heart, over and over again
Or be locked in the safe solitude of alchemy to the end

Ah ah ah ah x2 Break the spell
Track Name: Get Out
Lyrics by Gina Seal
Get me out
Of the way
Get me out
I can’t stay
Get me out
Find a way

Sun drops on the water
Moving in the sky
The Indian man’s daughter
Is sparkling in disguise
You see her faded footsteps
Filling up your mind
Syncing up your feelings
You can’t help but confide

Get it out
Of your mind
Get it out
Tear the day
Get it out
On the highway

Sun drops on the water
Moving in the sky
The Indian man’s daughter
Is sparkling in disguise
You see her faded footsteps
Filling up your mind
Syncing up your feelings
You can’t help but confide

Kick it out
Across the desert
Kick it out
On the road
Kick it out
On the devil
He has no one to hold

Drive through the mirage, it's you in camouflage.
