Backwards flipped back around Too Busy putting our own kind down Should have seen Mother nature Be our worse enemy Collective we are a virus One force that drives us Too proud to think it could grow inside us Now the tables have turned Are you happy where you have landed The tables have turned Now your sittin sittin on the other side Now here we lay in the beds that we've been making Is it hot are you cold Did you manage to get any winks in How many fingers have you been pointing Without considering the seeds that you've been sowing Now the tables have turned Are you happy where you have landed The tables have turned Now your sittin sittin on the other side Can't you see, unity Can't you see your own greed Can't you see, unity Can't you see your own greed When did this writing on the wall get so easy to read When did this writing on the wall get so easy to read When did this writing on the wall get so easy to read When did this writing on the wall get so easy to read

Whiskey Rye 06:13
All I know is you taught me well Take your time there's none to sell If you follow suit you might break the spell No shame in denial only time will tell All that's here is yours and mine Take whats left oh its no crime Save all you got even the pennies and the dimes Take whats left of its no crime Drink a half glass of whiskey rye See the blaze in the old mans eyes Don't forget that he never dies Always tells the truth even when he lies First things first you better get up quick Saved the best for last so you better not sit There's no spare time so you best not quite Two back and one forward Inch by Inch Play your hand it's all you got No time to fold not in this spot There's no building but a vacant lot All the time to grow and no time to Half glass of whiskey rye See the blaze in the old mans eyes Don't forget that he never dies Always tells the truth even when he lies First things first you better get up quick Saved the best for last so you better not sit There's no spare time so you best not quite Two back and one forward Inch by Inch Half glass of whiskey rye See the blaze in the old mans eyes Don't forget that he never dies Always tells the truth even when he lies First things first you better get up quick Saved the best for last so you better not sit There's no spare time so you best not quite Two back and one forward Inch by Inch

Get Out 05:04
Didn't look up till it was too late Hands in shackles now how did it end up this way March on in to see what we had won A loaded gun and your fingers on the trigger now its too late Get out get out Before its too late You heard what the darkness did say Get Out Get Out Before its too late Before you are their slave Lift up that evil with dollars in your hand Hard to speak your mind with other voices in your head I want to live where we all are free Free to love and be who we want to be Get out get out Before its too late You heard what the darkness did say Get Out Get Out Before its too late Before you are their slave Old man what are you fighting for Can't see past your own front door Got more problems than are in that bay Head on up the water and see whats on its way Get out get out Before its too late You heard what the darkness did say Get Out Get Out Before its too late Before you are their slave Before you are their slave Before you are their slave Before you are their slave Before you are their slave

The sun it rose the moon rose too Chasing each other across the blue Strength you'll find when you need it the most Whatever you hold onto will follow you like a ghost That's the way it goes Either hold your breath or float That's the way it goes The current ain't stoppin' no The current ain't stoppin' no Happiness comes from within Seeds that sprout with compassion Seeds that were born from everyday magic Happiness comes from within That's the way it goes Either hold your breath or float That's the way it goes The current ain't stoppin' no The current ain't stoppin' no The current ain't stoppin' no The current ain't stoppin' no

So Low 05:13
She gets so low She does not know where to go And So She gets so high She says that she can touch the sky Till she comes, comes back down again Down again He gets so low He does not know where to go And So He gets so high He says that he can touch the sky Till he comes, comes back down again Down again

Blood Moon 05:06
The tides are turning Where the ocean meets the bay The wet wood went burning Just before it rained Wasted our minds Long gone, so clear Never been so high to watch the sun rise My dear Feeling so fine on a night so clear There's a blood moon in our sky you can feel it in the air Over the bridge it's morning And the storm clouds rage But its for the north winds I'm yearning Blowing in the strange Wasted our minds Long gone, so clear Never been so high to watch the sun rise My dear Feeling so fine on a night so clear There's a blood moon in our sky you can feel it in the air I've come so far Just to see your face Behold your beauty Bless us all with your grace

War Moon 05:38
Breathe in Feel the change begin You are the one We've been waiting for Rebels take flight Their message sent through starry skies Listening to the whispering tides You might as well go you might as well try Feel the earth beneath you Feel the energy within you You aren't alone I am beside you Rebels take flight Their message sent through starry skies Listening to the whispering pines You might as well go you might as well try

Just Bow 04:01
When you're standing on the edge of the world And nothings the same as it was before I will tell you one time like I told you before Things better go changing before they all burn When it burns it burns so hot like nothing can repair The flames they shoot higher and the smoke it fills the air Maybe you will take your leap or maybe you'll just bow To the one who holds the power of a world that's right and now Men will fall down at their knees their words fly away There's nothing more to say when you've cursed the coming day Maybe you will take your leap or maybe you'll just bow To the one who holds the power of a world that's right and now Close your eyes my friend and turn your head Ignore those flames while the sweat drips down your chin The flicker grows brighter with each passing breath The feeling grows stronger the feeling of death Maybe you will take your leap or maybe you'll just bow To the one who holds the power of a world that's right and now

As I walk this path alone I'm reminded of faces and memories so far from home And they're a light that shines for me alone In my mind I walk a tight rope line Each movement supports the rest of my life And when I fall I'll pray these wings lift me away And these words they lay so heavy on my brain The words we said and the words we meant to say Seems to be your ship thats taken you away Dust yourself off and start to walk it off Decisions you made are here to stay And maybe next time you'll find a better way to say good bye Maybe next time you'll find a better way to say good bye Maybe next time you'll find a better way to say good bye
