Track Name: Gravity
I saw the sun
Just as the world revolves around it's light, I've come undone
I've come undone
I saw the moon
Just as the stars begin to fade and morning comes too soon
Morning comes too soon

Feel your gravity
Fall into your gravity
It's heavenly
To fall into your gravity

You saw my soul
You're witnessing a part of me that only God has known
That only God has known
You saw my heart
You know the walls of space and time could never keep us apart
Could never keep us apart

Gravity
Fall into your gravity
It's heavenly
To fall into your gravity

I've lost the ground
I'm head over heels and there's no turnin' round
So I'll give in
I pray that I can somehow find a way to hold my own within your gravity
Fall into your gravity
It's heavenly
To fall into your gravity

Gravity
Fall into your gravity
It's heavenly
To fall into your gravity
Track Name: Say So
Tired of runnin' circles 'round your feelings just for fun
I need something more from you or else I'm moving on
A look into your mind feels like I'm staring at the sun
So I'll close my eyes and keep pretending that I've won

'Cause when you say so
I don't believe you when you say so
Your promises stretch out like playdough
Don't you give me no more fables
Ima just go ahead and let you know
Every time you say so

Say so so so so
Ima just go ahead and let you know
Every time you say so
Say so so so so

Put away your mask and let me see just who you are
Take me past the surface even further to your core
Following your ego always leaves you wanting more
So put away your pride and show me what you're living for

'Cause when you say so
I don't believe you when you say so
Your promises stretch out like playdough
Don't you give me no more fables
Ima just go ahead and let you know
Every time you say so

Say so so so so
Ima just go ahead and let you know
Every time you say so
Say so so so so
Track Name: Let It Go
Let me tell you what you wanna hear
It's all good, no fear
Follow me into the atmosphere
We'll get high, disappear
Let me tell you what you wanna know
We think fast, move slow
I'll starve your ego and I'll feed your soul
Give in to the tempo

Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let go
Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let it go
Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let go
Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let it go

You live a life of consequence
And suffer to no end
So why you choosin' punishment
Give it up and give in

Give into the moment
Give into the moment

Give into the moment
(Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let go)
Give into the moment
(Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let it go)

Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let go
Let go, let go, let go, let go, just let it go
Track Name: You Don't Feel (No Shame)
(Shame)

And you say
Talk is cheap
As you feed me candy-coated words, sugar sweet
And you say
Have no fear
But you don't listen 'cause you're scared of what you'll hear

You don't feel no
You don't feel
You don't feel
You don't feel
You don't feel no
You don't feel
You don't feel no shame

(Shame)

You don't feel no shame

(Shame)

And you say
You've got it all
But you don't have the time to give your mom a call
And you say
You're the man
Putting on and showing off because you can

(Shame)

You don't feel no shame

(Shame)
Track Name: Modern Romance
First thought best thought
Closest to a feeling
Think twice then stop
Forget about the meaning
Be here right now
In another new city
Slow time somehow
For the nights that you're with me

Open your mouth
Tell me what you're dreamin' 'bout
Release the sound
Go ahead and say it out loud
Unspoken trust
Things that never leave the room
From dust to dust
It'll all be over soon

Ooooo

It'll all be over soon

Ooooo

Open your mouth
Tell me what you're dreamin' 'bout
Release the sound
Go ahead and say it out loud
Unspoken trust
Things that never leave the room
From dust to dust
It'll all be over soon
Track Name: Love Is
I don't want someone to need
I'm standing on my own two feet
I need space to breathe
Give me some relief

Feel like a bird without a song trapped in your cage
Like a flower cut too soon hiding in your vase
Let me spread my wings and I will go with you
Let me keep my roots and I will grow with you

My love is free
If you trust me
Will you trust me
My love is free
If you trust me
Will you trust me

Oh, oh, oh

You could never tame a wild thing
But you could learn to love it just the same
And you could never hold a burning flame
But you could feel the warmth without the pain

Feel like a bird without a song trapped in your cage
Like a flower cut too soon hiding in your vase
Let me spread my wings and I will go with you
Let me keep my roots and I will grow with you

My love is free
If you trust me
Will you trust me
My love is free
If you trust me
Will you trust me

Oh, oh, oh
Track Name: Amnesia
Remember where you came from
Or where you got your name from
Been awhile since you been home
Or talked to your daddy on the telephone

Amnesia
Amnesia

Remember where you came from
Or where you got this pain from
Sleep 'til the night comes
Keep a light in the dark and never see the sun

Amnesia
Amnesia
Amnesia
Amnesia
Track Name: No Filter
You say you wanna feel alive
But do everything you can
To numb the senses
Blind your eyes
Mute the sounds
And still listen to the lies

Filtered sunrise, filtered sunrise
Filtered sunrise, filtered sunrise

You say you wanna feel alive
But do everything you can
To numb the senses
Blind your eyes
Mute the sounds
And still listen to the lies

I can wake you up inside
(I can, I can, I can wake you up)
I can bring you back to life
(I can, I can, I can show you life)
I can wake you up inside
(I can, I can, I can wake you up)
I can bring you back to life
(I can, I can, I can show you life)

Filtered sunrise, filtered sunrise
Filtered sunrise, filtered sunrise
Track Name: Home
Oooo
Oooo

Mama, mama
Soothe my soul
Mama, mama
Make me whole

Mama, mama
Mama, mama

Mama, mama
Mama, mama
