We're gettin' outta Oz The green's comin' with us Our lives have come too far To share them with these odds If we leave today Move as far away as we can Would you even notice we are gone Or would you move on? 'Cuz this world's a sham Nothin's to plan Control's behind the curtain anyhow So we're headin' out The yellow bricks are turnin' into sand Shit's gettin' outta hand The horse has lost it's color All eyes have turned to grey Geniuses & martyrs They get out when the gettin's good The rainbow disappeared But we thought we'd persevere Heart, courage, & mind If we'd listened to 'em close Mighta solved all of the riddles And tightened our own ropes 'Cuz this world's a sham Nothin's to plan Control's behind the curtain anyhow So we're headin' out The yellow bricks are turnin' into sand Shit's gettin' outta hand The horse has lost it's color All eyes have turned to grey We're gettin' outta Oz

Thyme Flies 04:47
Sometimes wanting you is a scary thing to do from god to child from have to give from lust to friend But anger, loss, & fear aren't too be felt or real the cycle's just a spiral it all turns to soil Seeing something through is a scary thing to do from seed to fruit from womb to tomb from start to end The grass it isn't greener the sky it isn't clearer on the other side the fence is not too high Following the truth is a scary thing to do from lies to life from myth to freedom from law to revolution The world we've come to live in is as far away from heaven as any place a creator could create Until we live the real we'll only know what's human let's step up now to see our dreams awake Sometimes being free is a scary way to be she has a plan we must only listen and lead the next generation If we don't pay attention all this will be for nothing this planet, she'll forget we walked her shores but her trees are meant to climb and her vines, they will not bind you if you keep movin', honey bees will be the wings you need until it's time for thyme to creep over your bones

Stumped 05:55
Hands in a thousand places plastic animals on bleached lawns practiced Voodoo sparks from parking lots scared what he's got under each arm He walks city streets with closed eyes & red hawk wings wooden bones he's carved from willow & he sings the songs of aged men in the ground Wood & feathers stones & rivers scales & leather we are not Touch not take not waste not want not learn each lesson we forgot Incandescent streams have filled beneath his feet rains to cleanse the bleeding earth are running down the empty streets everyone's afraid the future's here the strings that guide his gliding steps are they held by God or spectres near? // He stops to roll inside himself his sockets glance astray "What are you looking at?" The scared around him say I walk on by & smile my smile & he stops & looks my way Says, "The new breed of alchemists isn't seeking fame or gold feel stories seep from every pore my hands are yours to hold we own the keys to all the doors we are the gold we seek // But leave behind the shallow mind that wants to be what you have seen the miracles in everything are best when every life is king //

Roasted 06:35
We spend our days working to change the weather where we are We spend our nights retreating from fake lights designing our own stars And when we rise we do it all again despite the damage that's been done we look past it to the exit we're shining towards the sun // Cynical though you may be jaded in all you've learned let us live in our world and we'll let you be in yours The sun rules all of our days and the moon governs all of our nights despite your different beliefs this planet deserves the same rights // Why don't we leave our dreams and follow our hearts scatter our seeds float on the breeze this chapter's just the start Death is a false prophet we all know it we can see what they hide Open your eyes universal signs are revealing all the lies // // Dehumanized plastic people fear & fashion guide the tour forgotten streaks shine in the trees your shelters block out nature's forces Feel the dirt in your fingers mash it through your toes muddy T-shirts and juice-stained lips let the earth heal all your woes // // And when we rise do it all again despite the damage that's been done we look past it to the exit we're flying towards the sun

Tiny Anthem 05:22
A world of fans & crowds of wand'ring followers is like a land of hungry fools relying on one farmer Who made the world? Why does that even matter? We're here right now. Forget about forever // And pick up your tiny banjo and play it all night long listen to the tiny rhythms become a tiny song when we join our tiny voices in one gigantic throng there ain't nothin' we can't do and no one stronger // Our hands grow weak, our bottoms heavy our eyes are blinded by the lights of fame last time I checked, we all still bleed red and our bodies, minds, & worth are all the same // // A string of words woven like our DNA The things we're told, so trite, so old, so cliche let's wind along designing our true future throwing all our first world problems out the door // //
