Track Name: You and I
The way that you know me
and the faces you pull
it makes it so fun
I don't care for resistance
Nor to tame generation
Just the rhythm so freely
the time that we're playing on

You and I could make it in the world together as something
You and I could make it in the world together as something

Blindly follow foul words swallowed
(Repeat)

I'm not playing your games
I'm not playing the field
I don't claim your streets
but I claim something real
and if you can't relate then pay your time
and conscious eyes fly open


You and I could make it in the world together as something (x4)

(Bridge)

You and I could make it in the world together as something (x8)
Track Name: Runaway
I think that you and I
Should take a walk around town
So I can show you some things
That you never got your head around
So come on baby and ask me a question
Maybe one of us will give you an answer
You know man it all depends
On the qualities of your banter

You got me speaking in tongues
You got me speaking in rhymes
You got me out of touch
You got me out of time
I could've been going out
I could've been going down
But I'm not going out
And I'm not gonna runaway!

Well a slap in the face will keep you up to the pace
You should be running, yeah, you should be running
But I don't mind if you take yourself a breather
While I'm strumming, yeah, just keep on drumming
So come on baby and ask me a question
And maybe one of us will give you an answer
You know man it all depends
On the qualities of your banter

You got me speaking in tongues
You got me speaking in rhymes
You got me out of touch
You got me out of time
I could've been going out
I could've been going down
But I'm not going out
And I'm not gonna runaway!
Track Name: Take Aim
I have stolen your blade
and I don't want to take aim
I find when I find a reason to regain
I am whole again
But obvious rhymes aside
you need no disguise 'cause

I don't want to take aim
I don't want to take aim

I have called my cease fire
for solstice is another overused idea for hire
The right price, the wrong turn
Another in the dust, time to stop its hold on us

I don't want to take aim
x4
Track Name: Straight and Narrow
If I had my time again I'd let you know
What you meant before you go
Scratch a thief and find a liar
I only have these sores
To show I haven't been so many times before

But I know you
I...
Know you

If you had your time again
I asked how you would run your race
You said that you would have blind faith
I could strive for fame or gold
Before I learned the truth
That money's fickle
and fame is soundproof

But I know you
I...
Know you

But I know you
I...

Love you
