Track Name: Starshine Kids
we flew rockest to the moon
never leaving the van
it was simple, it was stupid
but it was something we could have
along the daybreak rode the starlight
we waited to see
as we smoke and drank under the apple tree
and sang

oh, I know one day we'll be out of this town
and into the city we'll go-go-go
i know they keep us down for long
and nobody said it'd be easy
and I know it won't be

when in photos photos
we seem hollow hollow
we're just invisible
And in phone calls, phone calls
we seem shallow, shallow
we're just predictable

I'm afraid that i just might forget
everything that I felt
On that quiet autumn night
I was sitting by myself
along the daybreak rode the starlight
I waited to be
as I climbed up high into the apple tree
and sang

oh, I know one day we'll be out of this town
and into the city we'll go-go-go
i know they keep us down for long
and nobody said it'd be easy
and I know it won't be

when in photos photos
we seem hollow hollow
we're just invisible
And in phone calls, phone calls
we seem shallow, shallow
we're just predictable

But we're only kids for once
we're only kids
we gotta keep the stars shinin'
gotta' keep em' shinin' on
we're only kids yaknow?
we're only kids
we gotta keep our stars shin in'
gotta' keep em' shinin' on
Track Name: Ghost
there's a shadow that wanders
can you feel me who she is
before the sunlight fades away?
I can see her face now
glowing in the dark
is she screaming for someone
as her mouth fill sup with blood
oh I turn my head
and I look in the mirror
and I don't know who I am
Does someone know,
Who I am?
There's nothing left
but the things that made me laugh
at who I am
Does someone know,
Who I am?

I guess that a ghost
followed you home
followed you home
And every night
when the lights go out
she walks the ground

But no one knows
where she's coming from
or where she's going to
but you can follow her down

so I sit in the darkness
shadows all around
I think I hear a voice calling
I can hear her scratching
her fingernails and teeth
on the boards beneath my feet
is she reaching out to me?
Oh I feel the rain
as it freezes to my skin
I am dead
does someone know?
Why I'm dead?
Oh there's nothing left,
but the things that made me laugh
at why I'm here
does someone know,
Why I'm here?

I guess that a ghost
followed you home
followed you home
And every night
when the lights go out
she walks the ground

But no one knows
where she's coming from
or where she's going to
but you can follow her down
Track Name: Dark Blue Forest
there is no moonlight in these woods
there's only sunlight
I see a million miles of leaves
and the autumn in your eyes
underneath the frost we dance
until the sunrise

there is no moonlight in these woods
there's only sunlight
Lovers of young with flowers and rum
and a tragedy amidst
the cliffs and shores
until the morning comes
this forest is ours
Track Name: Out a Window
Honestly,
honesty don't come cheap
some days
you gotta beat it out of me
and even worse
I could fall in this hole
wide awake
witnessing the end of me
but I can tell
things are gonna' clear up soon
one step, one step at a time
and pondering
if I could just kiss the sky
facedown
in some foreign countryside

But we are not here to
follow our dreams we are
holding on tightly
to our guns
but if one day you
find me here you can
throw my ashes into the sun
lord I'm done

looking back
I really should have lost my mind
in the black
a drifting satellite
suddenly
I can't see the stars
to project
on what we truly are
But I can tell
things are gonna' clear up soon
one day, one day at a time
wondering,
if I could just find my name
just me
this sole identity

But we are not here to
follow our dreams we are
holding on tightly
to our guns
but if one day you
find me here you can
throw my ashes into the sun
lord I'm done
