Track Name: Jungle Fever
Heading towards the daylight
Letting the day unfold
Sitting at the streetlight
ready to lose control
I feel it and it feels right
Welcome to the good life


What I can't understand
is how you and I
left our inhibitions
with feral creatures in the dark room
we saw through ourselves to let go
of feelings we can't seem to keep inside

I've been waiting for it
Gave me that jungle fever
Drop by drop I'm running
Gave me that jungle fever


Running on the rooftops
losing my way off groud
As the city burns beneath us
Singing out our songs
We feel it and it feels right
Welcome to the mod life


What I can't understand
is how you and I
left our inhibitions
with feral creatures in the dark room
we saw through ourselves to let go
of feelings we can't seem to keep inside

I've been waiting for it
Gave me that jungle fever
Drop by drop I'm running
Gave me that jungle fever
Track Name: Delusions of Grandeur
And it was, here for me
you knew it had to last.
And if it, weren't for free
it wouldn't be so fast.
But I'm still seeing double
and I don't know where to run
Just follow my lead, moving closer to the sun

Looking back at all the times I couldn't bear to speak
Just one breath of air and I swear that I'll leave

I'll leave with my intentions intact inside my dreams
Looking back at times when I couldn't bare to speak

I can feel it, make its way into my skin
the more I let it happen oh, the more I give in
It just isn't like before
Always find myself I keep coming back for more

I'll lead you down this path we're on so blindly like before
Just close your eyes, hold on before you're safe, yea

You know that I do this to myself when things could be better
So much better but I can't let go
Lonliness, and happiness, tangled with, just who we are
I'm treading water out too far from shore

Don't go too far
Don't go too far
Don't go too far
Too far from shore

Don't you stare at the sun
Don't forget everyone
Just forgive, don't forget about a thing
Just let it go

I can feel it, make its way into my skin
the more I let it happen oh, the more I give in
It just isn't like before
Always find myself I keep coming back for more

Now I will fly
higher than the sun
I'll take a deep breath
leave my guard down for good
Track Name: The Weight Of Our Decisions
All of those words (Can't take back the feeling)
Those words I said
They're buried in the street (The mark's there to keep)
concrete and set

Catching dust in the wind
Taking on more and more
Feel my bones giving way
The weight of all our decisions

Holding on now, expect a bumpy ride
I don't want another sleepless night
Swaying back and forth I'm never right
Count up your losses kid and keep up the fight

Catching dust in the wind
Taking on more and more
Feel my bones giving way
The weight of all our decision
Track Name: Mind Complex
braindead,
mind complex,
our subtle fascinations we,
breathe in our relations just

vacate,
our brains,
blowing up our minds to find
this modern life were living in

no it's never the same again,
when we lose the sight of it
neither side can ever win,
when we fight for our lives to begin

lost in thought
my infinite plot
won't ease my mind/
the mind's abyss
will never miss
the chance to reminice/

our thoughts
pass by, and I lose them like strobes
I can end it if I try
but i just can't reach a node

our minds
changed so much but im still the same
but I've come too far
just to ease or to refrain

our hearts
an anchor that steadies the frame
with the visions of my life
the strength flows through my veins



one look,
in my eyes,
doesn't show what I want
I only find surprise

I know,
I'm still stuck in here
The lack of words that guide us through
the state of mind to ride the fear

to rid the doubt we
traveled out
traversed and climbed
subtle incline

our hearts now free
my eyes can see
through once unknowns
the thickest stone

our thoughts
oh i'll
let go let go
our minds
oh i'll
let go let go
our hearts
oh i'll
let go let go
our selves
wont stray away

oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh oh
oh ohhhhhhhhhhh...
