Track Name: Margin of Error
Out of gas and out of time
Full of fury, full of rhymes
It’s an age or so they say
Soon the pieces fall in place

It’s an eye twitch race
But you’ll maintain the poker face
Safety’s not guaranteed
Through time and space you lead

You won’t let yourself a margin of error
That’s what’s keeping you so wrong
You won’t let yourself a margin of error, no
You won’t let yourself a margin of error
That’s what’s keeping you so wrong
Oh so wrong….

Convinced that 1 and 1 is 3,
If that will soothe your precious mind
But like a wolf waltzing in sheep clothes
of that I can’t be blind

Your instinct’s to invent
A puzzle piece I haven’t seen before
Congrats, you’ve made it in my dreams
And I can’t take that shit no more

And you won’t let yourself a margin of error
That’s what’s keeping you so wrong
You won’t let yourself a margin of error, no
You won’t let yourself a margin of error……

Well it’s all becoming tactics now
And you won’t be the first
To climb on a rock that’s larger than your body
Before it’s turned reverse

You won’t let yourself a margin of error
That’s what’s keeping you so wrong
You won’t let yourself a margin of error, no
You won’t let yourself a margin of error
That’s what’s keeping you so wrong
Oh so wrong….not for long
Track Name: Windmill
And so the wind begins to turn
A momentary leap into fragile paradise
Well as you stood there in your grim
I knew you were gonna draw the cards

It's a new world outside in blend
The sun remains the same though
When the merchant folded his stand
A part of you that didn't want to go

And it's so deceiving
Yet it's so polite
You knew you shouldn't have built these walls
Turbines are much more efficient at night

Listen closely dear, 'cuz this is how it goes
A house left in a beautiful mess, I think
that no one saw the ship coming to the docks
They’ve decided to sit on the never ending brink

The glitter in your handkerchief, fades
Slowly as time goes
You said it's time to take a different stand
As the wind began to turn

And it's so deceiving
Yet it's so polite
You knew you shouldn't have built these walls
Turbines are much more efficient at night

She's floating out of a fantasy
Flying through the back door
Grasping your every moment in time

And it's so deceiving
Yet it's so polite
You knew you shouldn't have built these walls
Turbines are much more efficient at night

She's floating out of a fantasy
Flying through the back door
The trap was set aside as she passed
Every moment in time is alive
Every moment in time is alive
Track Name: If I'm Dreaming
Her eyes a mix of green and white
He finally found a thrill tonight
She wore a thin black dress

As hands are running down her thighs
And jaws are dropped, those standing by
Will soon write to express

If I’m dreaming
I can’t tell
as night and day are spinning
Under his spell

They go outside to join a chat
One broken dance, one tennis bat
Another taxi ride

Tonight she's bound to stow her cares
A double bed for three to share
Becomes a lion's pride

If I’m dreaming
I can’t tell
as night and day are spinning
Under his spell

Cut the feeding
Let it pop
And if it turns out I’m not sleeping, please
Make it stop

If I’m dreaming
Let it pop
And if it turns out I’m not sleeping, please
Make it stop

And if it's real I'm seeing
These careless eyes have seen too far
Sorry love we'll have to part
But words are trapped inside her mouth

You mix a drink to start the day
Will it always be this way?
Track Name: Burning Bridges
Burning bridges at the same time that you started crossing
Is it the time to break out of the spell, I’m mostly guessing
Wrestling, chasing, passing through the ghosts of chances
Running through some doors that are closing

Yeah, and it’s a matter of fact
Yeah, and it’s a matter of fact, so
And it’s a matter of fact so
You brought us nothing but trouble
And it’s a matter of fact so

Trade your memories for some fortune and fame
Is it true that it’s every man for himself?
Well, if that’s so, I’m not sure, that I even want
to play
Except my coins are already inside so

No, please don’t go there
No, you just won’t go there
I think it’s time for you to justify your angel wings and fly the hell away

And it’s a matter of fact, so
You brought us nothing but trouble
And it’s a matter of fact, so

No, please don’t go there
No, you just won’t go there

Burning bridges at the same time that you started crossing
Is it the time to break out of the spell, I’m mostly guessing
Wrestling, chasing, passing through the ghosts of chances
Running through some doors that are closing
Track Name: Your Life is a Mixtape
Once again you’ve shown me
How to take it just a step before too far
Alas that show was booked for your eyes only
Even though I’ve learned both our parts

What’s it like to be right
Nearly halfway through your time
Your scary ghost beneath you
Try’na write your special fairytale
But is it real, do you feel
Sick and tired as much as I am?

Your life is just a mixtape
Ain’t it funny how it all stays the same
See I’ve had my share of mistakes
And that has made me the man I am today

Illusions come and go
You’re always try'na sweeten the pill
But what’s the point of it all though
When you’re drowning in a manic urge to kill?
And sure I bet that you’re upset about that boy
As if his sun just swallowed your whole world
But what if I told you darling, you feel no different than
A girl in 1864

What’s it like to be riding
The rollercoaster of your prime
Your friends well they adore you
Still try’na write your special fairytale, but
Is it real, do you feel
Sick and tired as much as I am?

Your life is just a mixtape
Ain’t it funny how it all stays the same
Yeah I’ve had my share of mistakes
But that has made me the man I am

Funny how it seems like
You’ve lived your life too meaningful
Oh, just remember baby
Being a tree is just as cool
