Track Name: Cast in Gold
in the first words
i get to the urge
to keep my voice right underground
the second words i say
the feeling fades away
cause eyes goes wide when you can feel a sound
the bass pounds

spinning round this glow i know trying to find some bread
working like a dog i know tail between its legs
monkey see now monkey do i’ll do this till i’m
dead men float when their broke don’t you know
money ain’t no friend
watching how this water flows flows back to the sea
streaming from a tiny place you’ve probably never been
it goes it grows your getting close the pacific is what i see
the flow it slows and it knows that its home free

cast in gold
a heart will never mold
its a long long road to the hearse
when you’re scared of getting old
and laughing on your own
remember love, death it ain’t no curse

sometimes i think in waves
and try to behave
like i understand what its all about
but the more that i see
the less that i believe
that this world it spins all around me

something that she said said to me
love is what you are believe it and your free
because i wish the good upon
the people i love and love is one
you are whole whole without me love
and when its time to go
go happily
and when you’re on your own
the wind and the sea
will guide us home and we’ll be free

cast in gold
a heart will never mold
its a long long road to the hearse
when you’re scared of getting old
and laughing on your own
remember love, death it ain’t no curse
Track Name: Shake
I feel it when the sky fades
the last light it melts away
to leap its such a long way go
where the mind I'm told rolls and unfolds

never thought i'd fly the crows way
i tried once but i cant fly straight
who knows where it goes

and the wheels are spinning round
im getting on down here a broken sound
of where ive got to be
making up the ground

i feel it in my bones
picking up speed how quick it goes
you know its hard to know
when we lose control

feel it when the music play
sweeping over time and space
gotta shake it all away
and feel it deep in your soul
im part of a whole
gotta shake it all away
let the music play

just thinking how we got here
stuck working in the fast gear
flash frozen cause the winters here
some stories that were told make our hearts go cold

clock out a spinning day
and rock out cause i ain’t feeling tame
burn holes in your soles when we set it free

i'm hoping we can find grace
in all the shapes that our lives take
oh how i know the taste
of things so bitter sweet

and set out on your own
ripping around this winding road
you know its hard to know
when your about to lost control
just let it go

feel it when the music play
sweeping over time and space
gotta shake it all away
and feel it deep in your soul
im part of a whole
gotta shake it all away
let the music play
Track Name: North Park
i got a little story that you’ve probably heard
about life in this city it be getting absurd
its growing so fast lots of people making mad cash
and lots of suckers making music and…shit

i don’t want a house i want a home
nothing fancy, just some land so i can try to understand
this crazy world in which we awoke
shout out to my people that just get it ya know, ya i know

it was a quick trip i never meant to stay
but when the waves they be rockin gotta cast away
you know I’d never misbehave (ya right)
but you’re surely gonna lose if you try to play it straight

we livin in a world where that cash is king
gotta build your castles make the jester sing
this moneys making money watch the havoc it brings
money got not mouth but it when it moves it sings
it says

we movin on
we movin on
gotta to find a home
to rest my soul
on the road
gotta let it go

i’ve been workin kind of hard but its hard to compete
when the rents such a dent i get those itchy feet
it ain’t cheap, living on the coast got me thinkin
that perhaps my life would be better if i moved back east

but the people in this city bring a smile to my face
shout out North Park with its the style and the grace
this neighbourhood is dope and so light on my wallet
yil my place gets knocked by another condo complex

but fuck that and fuck you
we all just livin life and it ain’t about the money
that’s true
living on nothing keep the music movie through
we living life for the love not the nice cars and nice shoes

they call it gentrification sweeping cross my nation
its dope as fuck until the dozer shows up
until then we’ll keep it real in the core
North Park street, it’s a party for sure.

we movin on
we movin on
gotta to find a home
to rest my soul
on the road
gotta let it go

its hard to make a living when you do what you love
i say the music is the reason that I be keepin this up
its hard to make a living when you're living the truth
you gotta love who you are you gotta love what you do

community is when we live with grace
first find yourself and then you’ll find your place
i found its, but now its hard to ignore
that I’m livin in a city I can barely afford
guess thats what credit cards are for


we movin on
we movin on
gotta to find a home
to rest my soul
on the road
gotta let it go

we movin on
we movin on
gotta to find a home
to rest my soul
on the road
gotta let it go
Track Name: On my Own
look out i feel the waves
rough nights but the calmest days
stuck here til the swell it fades
burnt out, joint burn till its cleared away
in thought, ya i'm lost again
round and round no it never ends
the hard road
is when the freeway ends

knowing that your heart holds
strings that i can’t see
flying up so high though
i feel them guiding me
believe it cause my heart knows
when its beating up my spine
find yourself
and lose my mind

you and me we let it be
the things i want
the things you need
hard pressed left it on the outside
now we hide and
words I know been there before
to stay or leave how is one to know love
feel it in my bones
i’m on my own

set out, left to find my way
right road, eatin' forks all day
black white all i see is grey
white light, black road leads you to the grave hey
some things we can never know
splitting hairs means there’s
two ways to go babe
the root is hard to know

how is it these things roll
round and round my mind
push it up the hill dear
rolls down the other side
feeling like i’m stuck though
get out of my head
knowing that all lights burn
bright until their dead

you and me we let it be
the things i want
the things you need
hard pressed left it on the outside
now we hide and
words i know been there before
to stay or leave, how is one to know love
feel it in my bones
i’m on my own

you and me we let it be
the things i want the things you need
hard pressed left me it on the outside
now i hide
words i know been there before
to stay or leave, it keeps me wanting more love
how is one to know
i’m on my own
