Track Name: 7 Billion
This is for the people who are feeling numb, and alone.
This is for the one's who try to get back--to get on track.
And I know that it hurts. And no, you don't have to smile.

But remember those there for you, and remember those skies of blue,
and don't forget the one who's been there the most time of all--
the one who always throws their arms out when you start to fall.
And there's always cats.

This is for the people who can't pay the bills.
This is for the ones who try-- don't get behind; try to stay on time.
And I know that it's hard. And no, you don't have to help.

This is for the people who've had a little loss.
This is for the ones who've tried-- can't fill the void of those you've enjoyed
And I know that it gets lonely, even in a world of seven billion.

But remember those there for you, and remember those skies of blue,
and don't forget the one who's been there the most time of all--
the one who always throws their arms out when you start to fall.
And there's always cats.
Track Name: Conscience
Take my eyes and ears.
I don't wish to know.
Take my breath away,
for I fear to speak.

But you stay here for me.
Understand the weight of society.

Open hearts and thoughts,
with a closed mind.
And you gave your heart away.
Why?

But you stay here for me.
Understand the weight of society.

And the more that I learn,
the more that it becomes clear that I know less.

But you stay here for me.
Understand the weight of society.
And they say that they've changed.
All they say,
it matters not,
for those who cry tears.
Track Name: Return to Home
I am a moving soul,
unknowing of where to go.
But if you look,
and if you need to,
you can find me in the daisies,
in the music,
through your sorrow,
and in the field.
And when I return home,
I will love you the same.

Sometimes I speak too fast.
More so, I can't learn to react.
And when I need some time to myself,
I can find me in the journal,
in the music,
through my memories,
in the field.
And when I return home I will love you the same.

And when I am right next to you,
I sure hope that you will love me the same.
Track Name: (untitled)
Here walks in the girl of my dreams.
Her little yellow dress with the seams at the sleeves, darling.

Listen to her voice under the noise.
It's music to my ears, whispering clearly to me.

And not a single poet could write as beautiful the thought of your sight
to me.
Track Name: Cupcake
I saw that I was not alone walking there by the shore.
The one I saw was with me, as then we walked by the shore.
And as I leaned and looked through the blinding light, I saw her beauty.

I thought it'd be nice to be alone walking there by the shore,
The one who was once with me could not stand to let me go.
And now that one she has utterly disappeared, and it was my doing.

And there's no us, we, you and me.
Darling, I'm not sorry for being happy.

And now that I can be alone walking here by the shore,
I smile at the moon, but feel as happy as before.
And the emptiness of my hands is part of what makes me feel free.
Track Name: Elegy to Bunny
I feel sad, and I don't know why
that when I feel sad, it makes me wanna cry,
but I don't know how somehow I don't want out.
Why can't I make good decisions?
Next time something comes my way it may be better to just let it alone.

Curious, she wandered in the field.
So careful, she chose the daffodil
to hide beneath and catch the mouse.
What goes around, it comes around.
And why couldn't I have ran and saved her?
For the one thing that she loved was to have someone there to love her enough.

So if we may unite when I shut my last eye,
save us a place to sit and remember the time
that we both would lay side by side.
Assuming that we'd be alive--
no reason to ever give a proper goodbye, goodnight, forever.
