Track Name: My Safe Place
Breathe in, breathe out
I really miss the feeling of being alive
This place just kills my vibe
This place just wastes my time
I’ll find a new place
One I can't erase just to save face
Not a moment to waste
Here in my safe place
Track Name: Daybreak
Rays break through the horizon
A new dawn

The changing of perpetual cycles of this phenomena
Growing, dying, rebirth
The beauty that blooms forth
floating away from this fount
The well of existence
Venturing out
I am not floating

Free time
The warm air blows against my skin
The season of love

I have to relinquished my fear
In order to bear the fruit
I shall dance around and around
And go where ever the wind takes me
This theater pulls me in
The ebb and flow of it all

Vibrant light shines down on me

I’m alive
I am glad
No more rain
Shine down on me
I’m alive
(Some day this star will die)
I am glad
(Until then just multiply)
No more rain
(So many summers fly by)
Shine down on me
Track Name: Gaze at the Sun
Blast through the stratosphere
Push through the clouds
I look at the blue planet thinking more
More about my next life
More about the long journey
Space is my new home for now
I want more
I’ll see dead stars
Drifting in and out of nebula
Floating away

I’m taking off (floating away)
Taking off at incredible speed
I see comets
Engines on
I feel the power beneath me
Distant stars are my horizon
They form the endless dark
I pass nearby planets in hopes of finding my new home
Take me fucking home

This is a new form of loneliness
No one can hear me scream

I guess I’m not as strong as I thought
This cabin fever just won’t stop
I’ve got about 12 hours of sleep
I better find a habitual place fast

(I feel my skin crawl as I contemplate ditching my craft)


(Float on)
Drift away because it’s only natural
Float on and gaze at the sun
Track Name: Quantum Leap (Prequel)
This is something that I could only see in my dreams
It was made in the bosom of the universe eons ago
The secrets that it holds are only visible for a master's eyes
Its pulls between two voids and lets those who want to enter
To escape into a time that is not our own
A time that we have always wanted a cosmic leap 

This present generation 
Another place that feels like home 
Like something that I call my own
I feel like I've been here before

Is what i'm seeing a figment of my imagination
Or is it as real as I am?
How can this be real?
My mind is weary of this great beyond
But my eyes have seen and now believe

I wonder what I did to make my life imperfect
It’s useless, I need to get away

I live for nothing
I just waste away
Give me more satisfaction
I’ll be my own thrill

Which one is real and which one is the desire of my eyes?
Both are so radiant and bleed of unknown beauty

(Am I to travel to what I want or what needs me?
What is my destiny? I’m being pulled into these two different realities
And its becoming harder and harder to differentiate)
(Stop, Can’t stop)
Travel through the unknown
Separate dimensions I can’t stop 
Thinking of what I’m leaving behind me
I only look forward and onward

I must stay on this path of time that is laid before me
I must accept what these future ghosts have given me
I look to the sky to solve my dilemma
The cosmic divide makes me want to hide
I must morph into what the universe needs me to be

Getting closer to the end of my line
I’ll just hide in time 
My future is for me 
Just wait and see
There’s no going back
This journey’s for me
I’ll start to breathe… 

Breathing out and Breathing in
Let it all begin
Should I go any further?
Drifting out and drifting in
Consciousness begins
Should I go any further?

What have I found? 
It’s unusual, It’s incredible, It’s so unreal 
I must escape 
(This life is oh so grim, bright lights that dance and dim) 
Through portals 
(Quantum propulsion) 
This is my destiny 
(Slide Expedition) 
I need to be...
