Track Name: Pillar
lyrics by David Belcher

VERSE 1:
I see life and by it I am inspired
the highs and the lows are my reasons to stay wired
boredom is stimulation - Motive is motivation
an open mind is my conduit for creation

Amaze me and no doubt I will be grateful
a stubborn mind turns a blind eye and chooses to be hateful
you know it when you see it
greatness: take it or leave it
don't let another step in and say that you can't achieve it

Women are on my mind
tricky right one to find
because by definition she must be one-of-a-kind
Inner glass magnifier
smoke just to get you higher
when in reality these drugs you do not require

Blast off but come back home for dinner
everybody must begin life as a beginner
what's real is obvious
what's fake is obvious
so when they hide among each other, shit gets obnoxious

CHORUS:
In a line left behind caterpillar knows the only way
is to fade from day
face down no one around catch the sound of endless night
but his mind is bright

Broken down, light and sound, can a pillar really show the way
to a brighter day
With a smile and a dream we carry on to the unseen
and emerge one day
or so they say

VERSE 2:
I get down to feel electric motion
catch the harmonies that are breathin' beneath the ocean
when I fly off the track
know that I'm comin' back
And by all that is good, know that I am on the attack

Against oppression, suppression of creativity
as if we're given the only chance to live by authorities
authoritize this - every breath you take it a reason to move and shake
and ain't nobody gotta teach you that now

I see life and by it I feel summoned
the highs and the lows are my reasons to keep gunnin'
feelin' bold and alive and I'm not just livin' but thrivin'
one-million-one to your million and still ridin'

Blast off but come back home for dinner
everybody must begin life as a beginner
what's real is obvious
what's fake is obvious
we're on a whole other level so get onto us

CHORUS:
In a line left behind caterpillar knows the only way
is to fade from day
face down no one around catch the sound of endless night
but his mind is bright

Broken down, light and sound, can a pillar really show the way
to a brighter day
With a smile and a dream we carry on to the unseen
and emerge one day
or so they say
Track Name: It's Never Over
lyrics by David Belcher

VERSE 1:
Out after bedtime, love under moonlight
with open eyes until the sunrise
will I live to see this beauty again
please tell me when

Aah, aah
'cause I got no other words to describe
I just take one look into your eyes
and it all feels so fine
and it all feels so fine

CHORUS:
It's never over
those are the words you said to me with your eyes
we're not defined by the painful goodbyes
but the ones that make us smile that we let into our lives
It's never over
when we're together I can leave the rest behind
don't I know baby girl it took us all this time to shine
but it's time to shine

VERSE 2:
Shine on like sunlight calling the daytime
call back the season for any reason
I look into the mirror, I see myself
let this go well

Aah, aah
'cause I got no other words to describe
baby, you and I, we simply synchronize
and it all feels so fine
and it all feels so fine

CHORUS:
It's never over
when we're together I can leave the rest behind
don't I know baby girl it took us all this time to shine
but it's time to shine
