Track Name: Happiness Is Alien
Don’t take me to your leaders and their guns
They’d never like that I’m an alien
Don’t take me to the box you call a home
I’m crying for you
I came so far and found out Blake is dead
I don’t understand what goes around your heads
You’ve killed your world with concrete scars you know
I’m crying for you

Everybody wants to take the easy way
But what about the yesterday
That rises with the dawn
Everybody wants to take the easy way
But what about the yesterday
That rises with the dawn
And why should happiness be alien

Don’t take me to the church below the sun
They’d never like that I’m an alien
‘Cause I know the place where all of you are from
I’m crying for you

Everybody wants to take the easy way
But what about the yesterday
That rises with the dawn
Everybody wants to take the easy way
But what about the yesterday
That rises with the dawn
And why should happiness be alien
Track Name: City Lights
She was a vision under bright lights
Neon and lonely as can be
Dollar bill rolled up into good times
She will come
It will be all she needs

And she’ll fall and walk through city lights
The siren call is reaching to new heights
Where we going to
What we gonna do on our lonely and darkest nights
She walks through city lights

He was a vision on his own climb
Hugo Armani all the way
Breast pocket filled up with those good times
When he’s done
It will be all he bleeds

And he’ll fall and walk through city lights
The siren call is reaching to new heights
Where we going to
What we gonna do on our lonely and darkest nights
He walks through city lights

And we might be going crazy for tonight
Or we might be coming down from crystal mountain highs
All these lights, will make it right

And we’ll fall and walk through city lights
The siren call is reaching to new heights
Where we going to
What we gonna do on our lonely and darkest nights
We walk through city lights
Track Name: Shine
SHINE

You sat and you told them about all your dreams
They talked of your weakness leaving you torn at the seams
In you they saw all their failures exposed
They quietly pulled you to bring you down to their lows
But you shine

Yeah you shine like an angel, you shine like the sun
They lost their battles but now you have won

So shine on, shine on son
Your day has just begun
Don’t let them see your spirit falling
Cause the voice inside is calling to you

They put you under their fear-filled spell
Telling you stories about heaven and hell
But you shine
In you they saw all their own fears exposed
They covered you up in those criminal clothes
But you shine

Yeah you shine like an angel, you shine like a star
Wearing that suit made from feathers and tar

So shine on, shine on son
Your day has just begun
Don’t let them see your spirit falling
Cause the voice inside is calling to you

(the sun is up, the sky is blue)
And the voice inside is calling to you
Track Name: Future
Well she’s upset today with all the changes that you’ve made
Progressing to a point beyond guitars and razorblades
She don’t understand what makes your sun shine
Nostalgia kills the future and it taints time

Well she would like to go towards a dream from years ago
Regressing to a point when you were comforting
The pedestal she put you on is broken
Sanded into dust by words you’ve spoken

She blames the death of vinyl for the death of her smile
She blames the flying saucers as they spin up above us
She blames the latest inventions, divine intervention
She’s blamed her superhero for the last time

Well she’s upset today with all the pills she’s had to take
Just to reach the point beyond guitars and razorblades
She don’t understand just why she’s crying
Silvia’s within the flame she’s dying

She blames the death of vinyl for the death of her smile
She blames the flying saucers as they spin up above us
She blames the latest inventions, divine intervention
She’s blamed her superhero for the last time

She’s an alien
Just an alien
Another alien
And I’m an alien
Just an alien
Another alien far from home
