Track Name: My Own Mind
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp

I see it coming round that feeling once again
The seasons change and so it's time to ride the wind
The inner fury storm creation on the wing
Setting down the other side away from foolish pride

Rhythm set to human standard pushing like a blade
Bringing patterns to the light knowing it won't fade
Blades of fire seething with the force of hidden thoughts
Fooling those who fail to see the folly they have bought

I feel the calling of possibilities
The universe is full of many mysteries
Shoring up weakness jumping through my thoughts
Seeking out truth beyond what's been taught
I need control over my own mind

Formulas and phantom fears tearing at my soul
Constraints of time and pride a constant push and pull
Late is better than never but sooner would be fun
Nobody said it was time to run I missed the starting gun

I feel the calling of possibilities
The universe is full of many mysteries
Shoring up weakness jumping through my thoughts
Seeking out truth beyond what's been taught
I feel the calling of possibilities
The universe is full of many mysteries
Shoring up weakness jumping through my thoughts
Seeking out truth beyond what's been taught
I need control over my own mind
Track Name: Break Free Again
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp and Joe Purrenhage

I see it The way of breaking free
I feel it Holding back my need
I wonder When I'll be free
I know it Won't be too long now

Something in my eyes
Makes me realize
What I want to be
Always breaking free

I hear it Knocking at my door
I want it That and so much more
I have it Life drive within me

Things that hold me down
Always losing ground
Now it's time for me
To See what I can be

Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Again

No freedom To be what I can be
No Movement How can that be free
No Safety Bound up in our fears
No Human We all have shed some tears

Something in my eyes
Makes me realize
What I want to be
Always breaking free

The Loss of Time that slips away
The Gain of Good times in our day
The Balance Riding out this wave

Things that hold me down
Always losing ground
Now it's time for me
To See what I can be

Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Again

Believing I'm the only one
Retreat from Those who'd do me harm
Attacking Barriers in my way
Surviving All the things they say

Something in my eyes
Makes me realize
What I want to be
Always breaking free

Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Again
Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Breaking Free
Again
Track Name: Keeping Up With Time
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp

The seas of time do I sail
If I try I may fail
If I don’t my soul’s for sale

Go into underneath and find
All the hidden lines
Below the apathy of life
The inner strife will heal

I need to know it for sure
The feelings of pure
Release all the gore

Reflecting back on all that’s been
My senses start to shine
Hallowed the halls I have seen
My Prescient Dreams

I’ve seen the times of pure satisfying joy
Visions of wilderness ever since I was a boy
Seeking the answers untapped within my mind
Blasting along just keeping up with time

The crippled thoughts in my mind
Are lost and unkind
Won’t leave me behind

Below the dreams we always lose
Is the real world
Cooped up inside we all lose sight
Of the outside world

I’ve seen the times of pure satisfying joy
Visions of wilderness ever since I was a boy
Seeking the answers untapped within my mind
Blasting along just keeping up with time
Track Name: Without a Reason Why
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp

Looking for peace of mind
Up here where everything is fine and free
It’s where I want to be

Clear blue water stretches out
Fine cool breeze clears my mind out of the things
That make me go insane

I see it right before my eyes
The freedom to give it one more try
A sense of life without a reason why

Leaves of trees flash in the breeze
Summertime is the time to call it out
And pull it back again

Cicadas singing in the sun
Strike a chord that’s primal within everyone
Who’s ever been in love

I see it right before my eyes
The freedom to give it one more try
A sense of life without a reason why

I see it right before my eyes
The freedom to give it one more try
A sense of life without a reason why
Track Name: Walking Around
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp

Walking around outside I feel that
This could be my day
The great expanse of space above me
Blows my mind away
Seasons change while birds will sing
Songs of yesterday
Something inside makes me wonder
Walking around today

Mountains high up in the sky
Walking around I think my my my
Sanctuary of living dreams
Loving you today

Mountains high up in the sky
Walking around I think my my my
Sanctuary of living dreams
Loving you today

Walking around outside I know that
This will be my day
The great expanse of space above me
Blows my mind away
Seasons change while birds will sing
Songs of yesterday
Something inside makes me wonder
Walking around today
Track Name: Melancholy Days
Lyrics by Daryl Ropp

I don’t feel what I should
There’s so much in life that’s good
My fate follows me round like a dark clould

Ask for nothing, receiving just that
Set the bar high still coming up flat
No I didn’t do all that I could
Now there’s nowhere to go

Can’t find love it’s all so up tight
No one wants to do what is right
Dead is the world that I once knew

I can feel it in my veins
Things may never be the same
Entering a new dark phase
These melancholy days

I see time as if it was lost
Don’t want to feel there’s so big a cost
Can’t find a thing that isn’t the way
I saw within my eyes

I want life to be as it is
So hard to love but know how to live
See all the words that I just can’t say

I can feel it in my veins
Things may never be the same
Entering a new dark phase
These melancholy days

Life is flowing in my veins
Things I love still remain
Passing through a bleak dark phase
These melancholy days
Track Name: Outside Pressure
Lyrics by Joe Purrenhage

As I wander down the road I wonder where to go
Something starts to push on me and makes me want to know
Building up outside of me as if I will implode

Pushing inward
I push outward

I get up some energy to push against the the wall
Resistance only makes me stronger now I make the call
I let it take hold of me and start to take the fall

Pushing inward
I push outward

Twisting, turning and feeling the burning
Pushing, pulling as if I’m drowning
Wearing, tearing the

Outside Pressure
Outside Pressure
Outside Pressure

Pushing inward
I push outward

Twisting, turning and feeling the burning
Pushing, pulling as if I’m drowning
Wearing, tearing the

Outside Pressure
Outside Pressure
Outside Pressure
Track Name: Drive
Lyrics by Joe Purrenhage

Got this stupid guy in front of me and he doesn’t
doesn’t want to see the world
Standing here trying to do my thing and he wasn’t
wasn’t going to give it a whirl
Gotta pass to the other side of a moment
moments won’t be here for long
No stranger daze gonna stop me now cause I’ve got to
got to get on to this song

I’m driving, I am driving
I’m driving, driving to get to somewhere
I’m driving, I am driving
I’m driving, driver be aware

Chasing lanes in a stop and go doesn’t make sense
since you’re not going to there
Check the phone cause an accident ‘cause their mind went
went somewhere other than here
Looking forward to the open road where I can
I can be mobile again
Hold on to my thoughts and dreams where I’ll see
See a way to let it begin

I’m driving, I am driving
I’m driving, driving to get to somewhere
I’m driving, I am driving
I’m driving, driver be aware

I’m going to get away from here
pass on to the other side
I need to be free and clear
I’m running so far and wide
When I speed away from here
It’s a long way to ride

There’s not a soul for a mile ahead and she doesn’t
doesn’t fill the space in between
May be stuck in a daydream again and she couldn’t
couldn’t find her way back again
She makes a move to the inside lane and I pray that
pray that nobody is there
Just my luck would be an accident and then I
then I just stop and stare
