Track Name: Legend of the Ghosts
a long time ago I was dancing at a show
someone came and burned down the disco
the band they wouldn't move
locked into a groove
when they came to
they were born again as ghosts

lost in time and space trying to escape
drifting through the ether
'til walking down a side street the drummer found a beat
and the music brought back long lost memories
and they found that they remembered how to play

funkadelic disco ghosts
we came to groove
keep your distance don't get close
or you might get spooked

playing their first show the people didn't know
who was sending sound waves through the speaker
I was not there long but I swear I heard this song
what you hear is my best imitation
this is the legend of the ghosts

funkadelic disco ghosts
we came to groove
keep your distance don't get close
or you might get spooked
Track Name: Wake Back To Bed
eyes wide the heat of a fire won't keep me warm tonight
drive myself crazy trying to separate the wrong from the right

and I try
I try to step inside
try to find
all those friends within my mind
when morning light hits my eyes
this life I've lived starts to slowly drift away

I been pondering the state of this world and
I don't like what I see
society breeds all this jealousy and greed
killing one another for some new shit that we don't need

so I try
I try to step inside
try to find
all those friends within my mind
when morning light hits my eyes
this life I've lived starts to slowly drift away

I don't wanna wake up today
I don't wanna wake up

if you knew what I been through
you'd probably still not give a damn
but you could choose to, i hope you do
I'll be waiting here with outstretched hands

'til then I try
I try to step inside
try to find
all those friends within my mind
when morning light hits my eyes
this life I've lived starts to slowly drift away
Track Name: The Lucky A
I'm dying every day but I still feel the same
my body's wasting away but I ain't got no pain
you say that I should not feel this way
I'm just taking my life day to day

we are not like you people here
this world was never meant for me
these days all I seem to see
are visions of the man that I can't be
I think often 'bout the space we've shared
smiles, cigarettes, and air
I still have you in my dreams at night
I paint you in a better light

my brain escapes me in times of need
TV screens and magazines reduce me
to states of self-hatred that plague the way I see
this world is a strange strange place to be

we are not like you people here
this world was never meant for me
these days all I seem to see
are visions of the man that I can't be
I think often 'bout the space we've shared
smiles, cigarettes, and air
I still have you in my dreams at night
I paint you in a better light
Track Name: Saturdays
breathe deeply, a winding road
running through the mountains holding promises of gold
all you've ever known after all that you've been told
is poison for your soul

what a beautiful day to die
think I'll sit inside and get high
when I'm gone don't remember my name
just remember what I came for
to see you smile

each day begins with sin
medicate the youth with plastic skin
sever all connection to a world within
I won't live that way

what a beautiful day to die
think I'll sit inside and get high
when I'm gone don't remember my name
just remember what I came for
to see you die
Track Name: Lucid
how does one reason with a fool?
how can I reason with you?
have you ever seen a flower bloom?
everybody's serious but me

why do trees cling to dying leaves?
how many secrets can one man keep?
my my look at the people in the city
walking around in their sleep

I can't wait to feel this way once more
I can't wait to see your face
I can't wait to feel this way once more
I can't wait

this storm is finally passing us by
(sky is clearing)
I can feel the sun peeking out from behind the clouds
the light comes down and dances in your eyes
(you never looked so beautiful as now)
but then I wake and I return to being not OK
I'm quite sure when I say
in my dreams is where I like to stay

everything's connected in a strange design
cosmic web woven out of countless threads of time
I know you're scared to open your mind
believe me when I tell you
we are gonna be fine

I can't wait to feel this way once more
I can't wait to see your face
I can't wait to feel this way once more
I can't wait

this storm is finally passing us by
(sky is clearing)
I can feel the sun peeking out from behind the clouds
the light comes down and dances in your eyes
(you never looked so beautiful as now)
but then I wake and I return to being not OK
I'm quite sure when I say
in my dreams is where I like to stay
