Track Name: Sameness
Finding a way to make it all work today
Finding a way to make sense of the play

Same as you
Sameness to do


This is just finding a way to make it all work today

Sameness to do
Sameness to do

This is just a mirror of your yesterday
Can’t quite get away
Because it’s all for learning’s sake
This is just a mirror image of your yesterday
Can’t quite get away
Because it’s all

Track Name: O, Valentine
O Valentine
You could be mine
In pantomime
Let's press rewind
And in due time
We could just find

A Grand Design
Awaits our eyes

Take a walk together as we talk
Chase our fears from edges of piers
Fevers in and out
Fevers come and fevers go
I just wanted you to know

A little note
Filled up with jokes
Some poem you / I / we wrote
Today we’ll toast
You could be mine
O Valentine

We’ll find the time
In pantomime
Let’s press rewind

At your smile
I'll stare for a while
Take a hike
With you on a bike
Once again I'll let you in
To my surprise
The best of both
Your ears and your eyes and your smile

Such grand design
We'll find the time

I'm yours
You're mine
Track Name: Stop The Madness
I don't wanna read the news
I don't wanna see another one

Stop the madness
Stop the madness
Stop the madness
Stop the madness
Track Name: Metamorphosis
Lately Optimistic
Neighborly Intrinsic
Nearly-ending cold front
Questioning the bold font

See the butterfly be
More than what she can see
Blending expressively
If only for a season

Trying to / fear less / than I did / last year
Trying to / love more / than I did / last year

Newly crafted poems
Fairly weathered sketches
Weird old habits
Dusty gadgets

Building trust with partners
Making sense of dollars
Not sure what to call her
Temperature mixups / hiccups / lift offs

Trying to / fear less / than I did / last year
Trying to / love more / than I did / last year

If only you / could be me / If only we / could all see
If only I / could be you / If only we / could speak truth (only)

Metamorphosis: are we more than this?
Track Name: It's Okay
Hey, it's okay
Be a little nicer to yourself today
Tomorrow we will try again
