Track Name: He was a good kid
the first day we met
you were so funny
when we became friends
it meant so much to me
how could the world be so damn cold
taking your life at only twenty five years old
a man with a heart of gold
with so many of his stories left untold
to have to see you on display
with one more chance to say things I had to say
I never wanted to walk away
I'll never be able to forget that day
it's not ok
I think we can all agree
some things should never be
I wish you were here with me
we could alter reality
I wish we could all just flee
to our fading memories
one day I hope we will see
the meaning to all of this
I'd do anything to feel your embrace
or to see your face again
but you are never coming back
as I stand here wearing all black
I'll never forget what your parents did
they stood there agreed he was a good kid
Track Name: Irish mountain road
you use to always say 'if you need any tree
meet me on the mountain' it's where you told me to be
always smiling, always just a few minutes late
but on the money with the product looking great
you used to say you might not be there one day
I'd shrug it off as if everything would be ok
always smiling, always just a few minutes late
but making up for it by tossing in extra weight
I can't describe how it'd make me feel
seeing you in that oldsmobile
you were the source of all of our fun
but flew too close to the sun
and you were always there for me to lean on
still in disbelief that you're gone
I find myself missing you all of the time
floating on must be so sublime
you use to always say 'if you need any tree
meet me on the mountain' it's where you told me to be
always smiling, always just a few minutes late
but on the money with the product looking great
you used to say you might not be there one day
But now you're gone and I go there anyway
I'm on the mountain, it's where you told me to be
Track Name: Day tripping
put the paper under your tongue
and wait for an hour or two
can't turn back on what we've done
today it's just me and you
not worried about crowds
we'll just lay and stare at the clouds
always tripping on a whim
so let's go for a swim
and if we ever get too scared
we'll just have to smoke some weed
to calm down in this fucked up reality
and it we ever trip to hard
we'll just sing a little song
and remind ourselves
that we've been in the best of company all along
I'm peaking
and if the fridge starts to dance
we'll all just have a laugh
happily lost in this trance
maybe drop another half
and if we ever get too scared
we'll just have to smoke some weed
to calm down in this fucked up reality
and it we ever trip to hard
we'll just sing a little song
and remind ourselves
that we've been in the best of company all along
Track Name: Goblinleg
that day we renamed glass
green lantern in the past
never smoking reg
new name was goblinleg
so many memories and laughs
yet still no photographs
I wish I could go back
and try not to forget this time
why do we always fall
into the same traps we don't see at all
Ignoring signals blindly
when will we ever learn?
why do we all fall apart?
or have things taken from us?
