Track Name: We Climbed Phaser Mountains
Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground
Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground

Sell a man a fish and he’ll chew, bite, swallow
But teach a man to fish and you lose five dollars
To tight pockets flow the profits of the actions
Of poor who export bought land for a fraction
River bank to Swiss bank, green grass to green paper
It’s a “dig, drill, cut and flee the scene” caper
There’s youth- soon to be consumed by the rat race
‘til too fat to crawl back through the cash maze
They say: “strive for wealth and get a wage,
And climb enough to buy yourself a better cage
And like the cogs in some great, grey machine
The city teams with lost who nay-say their dreams
And fiend for the weekend and that dim light time
To find the wrong side of the thin white line
Its cut-throat, so don’t get blood on your best tie
And climb, ‘cos the mountain’s the best place (You gotta get) to get high

You gotta get higher than the superman you plan to be amongst the sky

Why do we ask these questions, lessons sold from a burning heart

I can’t depart this party, partly lost and lonely

Parts will slowly fall down out below me; 

All that we know she’s lost amongst the snow

Only the mountains know …

Who would of thought you could change the world now?

When we still live in fake plastic houses
All the trees were cut down around us

Fire through forest burning the doubtless…

Through the night it soundless
Peace through the valley turning the mountains
…
And our love was groundless
Just another entry in the lost and found list

Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground
Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground

Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground
Climbing higher can’t you see you’re falling down

Take your time to, get your feet back on the ground
Track Name: Fade
When it was just blue skies and haze and true lies
Thank the world that we didn’t grow up (no)
When it was all in your mind just a fiction of mine
Thank the world that we didn’t show up (no)
When we waited for days, wondered if you would say
All the things that we didn’t own up to
Watched us fading away like the sun to a day
We were lost in our waves like the ocean

When it was just blue skies and haze and true lies
Thank the world that we didn’t grow up (no)
When it was all in your mind just a fiction of mine
Thank the world that we didn’t show up (no)

We could’ve run away; and through the darkness I
Sit here softly, wondering why
I always needed to, believe in you
Our dreams were meant to fly
But I was always falling from another sky

From another sky
From another sky
From another sky

Chain, shackle, chain, shackle
It’s got my brain baffled
I bang the steel to feel my cage rattle
Chain, shackle, chain, shackle
It’s got my brain baffled
The serpent’s purpose is the service of those strange apples
I guess I left your nectar neatly tied to the greener vines
A fouler trace in mouths to taste is sour grapes from sweetest wine
Lust for freedom’s my decline- it binds me tight, I find I’m tied
At times I’m tired of trying to find a balance like my bank’s declined

We could’ve run away; and through the darkness I
Sit here softly, wondering why
I always needed to, believe in you
Our dreams were meant to fly
But I was always falling from another sky

From another sky
From another sky
From another sky

From another sky
From another sky
From another sky
From another sky
From another sky
Track Name: We Are Home Again
We are, we are, we are (repeated)

So they say I've lost my mind
But I still feel alright
Don't know why I was trying to keep myself insane
All I did was think of you, waste away another day
So pick me up I wanna fly away again

We are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are (home again)

We are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are (home again)

We are, we are, we are (repeated)

They say there’s no place like home-
Feelin’ that warm western breeze breathe new flesh to my bones, and
I just couldn’t shake you like a rhythm in my brain
You’re still swimming in my veins to this day

We are, we are, we are (repeated)
Track Name: Family
Where did all my family go?
Only heartless wait alone
Burning love right through the snow
Yeah we were lost so long ago

Where were you when I lost my mind?
Burning through the sands of time
Lost amongst these pointless words
Singing songs of silence to the empty street curbs

Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind
Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind

Where did all my family go?
Lost along this lonely road
If only I could make it so
Forever never be alone

Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind
Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind

Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind
Yeah you were beautiful
Fading from my distant mind
Track Name: Two Fires
I fight the fire but the fire fights me
I fight the fire but the fire fights me
I fight the fire but the fire fights me

Drop your guns 'cause The Brow will bomb ya!
We throw sounds like a double entendre
There's two fires and we're fighting both
Keeping it safe across the West Coast
Stay close and 'get ur freak on'
I'm a stay strong, keep my freedom
I don't belong but I do design
A three course meal, I'm a take my time!

It’s the big beat ambassadors
You couldn’t bite this style if we bought it to your masseters
Passengers advised to make note of the exits
Smoke from pyrotechnics will choke you like a necklace.
Wrote the set list in wax drips
Slipped the old West this new batch of tactics-
Two packs of matches stacked into a satchel
Tackling syntax in rap that’s mad factual
The hats will attack, the breaks are on a warpath
Filthy; the bass-line hates to take a warm bath
And for the main course NDORSE serves the guest list
This next dish; crème snare with fresh kicks
Soaked a wet spliff in kerosene-
Bright for a second like a fool with a clever scheme
Mother warned me not to play with matches
But fact is, the lighter kinda had me distracted

Lap it up lap it up lap it up like a Labrador
Please sir, Oliver's gonna ask for more
Three bites worse than a four Bach verse
Beethoven gone first in a symphony curse
It's getting worse than we thought
Where's the ship gone? It's gone down with the frought
I caught a glimps of the evil in your eye
You're the devil hidden, hiding in the inner city sky

Boo ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haa
Play that shit loud in the back of your car!
Boo ha ha ha ha haa
Count Drac jammin' down Jameson at the bar

Boo ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haa
Play that shit loud in the back of your car!
Boo ha ha ha ha haa
All the haters in the world are nothing more than they are...
