Track Name: Brain on Autopilot
As I wake up In a groggy haze
I see the world unfold before me
It all seems blurry and it's slipping away
I'm not aware of what I see

I try to get on by each passing day
But it only seems that I'm wasting away
Never stop to think that I'm aware
It's time to say I need to say that I care

That I'm just living with my
Brain on autopilot
Costing along it's been too long
Brain on autopilot
Cruising on by it was all just a lie
Brain on autopilot
Living for the weekend and nothing more
Brain on autopilot
Time is running away

We all think it will be over soon
But there's always more work to do
So we mindlessly get through each day
We've lost our presence, we've lost our way

We try to get on by each passing day
But it only seems that we're wasting away
Never stop to think that we're aware
It's time to say we need to say that we care

We're all just living with our
Brain on autopilot
Costing along it's been too long
Brain on autopilot
Cruising on by it was all just a lie
Brain on autopilot
Living for the weekend and nothing more
Brain on autopilot
Time is running away

Floating by we're all vulnerable
To those who'll use us to follow
Their hidden motives and greedy lies
What our we doing with our lives

We're all just living with our
Brain on autopilot
Costing along it's been too long
Brain on autopilot
Cruising on by it was all just a lie
Brain on autopilot
Living for the weekend and nothing more
Brain on autopilot
Time is running away oh yeah
Brain on autopilot
Costing along it's been too long
Brain on autopilot
We're all just wastin' away
Track Name: Irrational Fears
Irrational fears
Always bring me to tears
They fill up the night with it's dark
The monster under your bed
Is just the monster in your head
But why did he give me anxiety

Roads of madness lie in my way
And they know no reason but they're all here to stay
Irrational fears have me locked in a cage
It doesn't make any sense to be afraid

So show me a course
That will rid of this force
Why is the wall so high
There's one path I know
You don't need to alone
Stand up and face your fears

Irrational fears
Carry on through the years
Isn't it time to move on
We all feel them to
They are nothing, not new
They're only the nature of human beings

Long long ago when the first men were born
They lived on instance and intuition alone
Today we retain what our ancestors gave
The fears from the past are ingrained

Climb to the top
Though the challenge never stops
Carry the torch to the end
Above all we're sure
we will always endure
Hang on and face your fears

I think I finally se light at the end
It's growing closer with each passing day
It seems I'm finally starting to live my own life
I'm far away and no longer controlled by my fears
Track Name: Going On a Trip
Well it's six 'o clock on a Friday night
Kickin' back and home alone
It's been a long long week working' day in and out
Got my friends on the phone
They say hey there friend come on over our place
Hang 'till we see the day
Hurry up and don't be late buddy
But then I heard them say

We're going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip tonight
Going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip to Mars

Sitting around the apartment floor
There's something more in store
They whip out squares of paper and glass
And bags of funny grass
Taking a toke and passing around
Loosing all self control
The night has begun and they're asking me:
Hey man you wanna try some?

We're going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip tonight
Going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip to Mars

I've thought for the longest time
That I don't need to live my life
On some illusion to pass it by
The pleasure's only fleeting
And not true happiness
But do I need to do this
just because they are my friends?
No!

We're going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip tonight
Going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip to Mars
We're going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip tonight
Going on a trip, going on a trip
Going on a trip to Mars

I think I'll just go work for NASA
Track Name: Something's Missing
Lately I've been thinking life's been too empty
It all seems fine but something doesn't feel right
I don't know what it is I don't think about it
But this can't go on anymore
So I'll take some time to think what must be the problem
And try to find the answers locked in myself
It may be a while before I can see them
Standing out in the open

'Cause I feel like there's
Something Missing
Yes there's
Something Missing
I feel
Something's Missing
From my life, from my life, from my life

Over the years I've grown and learned many things
Have I ever stopped to learn of my self
It's the things that I don't know that give me a purpose
But what I've rejected lies under the surface
Sometimes I think too much and that's what will stop me
And just sometimes I'll take the risk
But what is life without a little love to keep?
It's time to fill the hole now

That I know that there's
Something Missing
Yes there's
Something Missing
I feel
Something's Missing
From my life, from my life, from my life

Something Missing
Yeah there's
Something Missing
I feel
Something's Missing
From my life, from my life
'Cause I feel like there's
Something Missing
Always
Something Missing
I Know
Something's Missing
From our lives, from our lives, from our lives
Track Name: Shine On
I see that you've been weary
For a long, long long time
But you're only just beginning in life
Do you know you don't have to
Walk this road alone
It goes on forever
But you've already
Given up on the fight
Get back in the ring
You'll make the world sing
And all that was lost will
shine on

Gone are the childhood days
From a long time ago
Don't dwell on mistakes of the past
Can't you see you don't have to
Roam the world alone
Change, it isn't easy
But you already
Take it day by day
One step at a time
One day you'll shine
And when the morning comes you will
Shine on
And when the dusk falls you will
Shine on
And all through the night you will
Shine on

You've become disillusioned with life
So have I
We already know
When the truth is so hard to come by
Can't you see we need to
Save humanity
If we did more than talk in despair
Maybe we would
Already be there
Well on the road
Utopia's Road
Until that day comes we will
Shine on
Moving onward we will
Shine on
And into the sky we will
Shine on
Track Name: I - Realization: the Power of the Mind
As I turn around I see the I
Staring back at me it was always mine
I can't look away anymore
There's more in store for me
I can't pretend to live without my mind
As human as I find

Here and now I see what's wrong
I need to listen to my self I've ignored so long
Though I long to see the world out there
It all seems so unfair
How can I move on to the road ahead
With the world messing with my head?

In a world that's filled with lies
I find solace in the skies
Help me find the I

And this phase will come to pass
And you'll turn around and laugh
And your eye's will find the truth
And the world will follow too

Now I realize I'm in control
I don't need to do what i'm told
As my destiny is all my own
But I won't be alone
I will go on and chase the dreams of mine
I will chase them to the sky

In a world that's filled with lies
I find solace in the skies
Help me find the I

And the I watches over all
It exists within all human kind
It is how we see our selves and the world
We can change it if we reach beyond our minds
