Track Name: Another Day in Paradise
I feel the fire burning.
I got a monkey on my back.
It's heavy and it's hurting.
I gotta get my train on track.
I got the same old patterns.
The same old problems.
I feel the same old things.
They don't make me smile.

It's just another day in paradise.
It's just another way for my heart to think twice.
It's just another day in paradise.
And I, wish that you were here.
I wish that you were...

Away from all the questions
Where it's beautiful and clean.
Away from these prescriptions
To a place where you are queen.
No more landslides
No more postcards
No more bitter pills
That would make me smile.

It's just another day in paradise.
It's just another way for my heart to think twice.
It's just another day in paradise.
And I, wish that you were here.
I wish that you were here...
Track Name: Walk in Circles
There's nothing left to fear.
You're a million miles from here.
Why don't you just fall into place?
You're so far away.

Until my eyes have seen enough
Of running blind from miracles
Of falling in and out of love
I will walk in circles.

Release your heart to play.
There's so much that I could say to you.
Why don't you stay?
You're so far away.

Until my eyes have seen enough
Of running blind from miracles
Of falling in and out of love
I will walk in circles.
Until my mind has played enough
Games with blind empiricals
Of falling in and out of love
I will walk in circles...
Track Name: Gravity Affects Me
I was a superhero before I met you.
Why did I choose to trust you?
What did I have to lose?

Now when I fly
You're not there to catch me.
And I try
But gravity affects me.
I will die.
The ground is rushing at me.
Gravity affects me
And nothing's there to catch me.

Presidents and statesmen
Will have to learn a different song.
Our love is gone.

Now when I fly
You're not there to catch me.
And I try
But gravity affects me.
I will die.
The ground is rushing at me.
Gravity affects me
And nothing's there to catch me.

In my darkest hour
Will you say a prayer for me?
Or, should I crash into the sea?

I was a superhero.
I was a superhero...
Track Name: Run from Thunder
Graceful waters
Lay me down my footsteps firm.
I've taken all that I can.
Sing a new song.
Sing a blue song under gray skies.
I've taken all that I can.

I give praise to the God
Alive inside my heart.
I tremble through the fall.
I tremble when we rise

And run from thunder.
I tremble when we rise
And run from thunder.

Mother river
Wash me over and be done.
I've taken all that I can.
Mother river
Wash me over and be done.
I've taken all that I can.

I give praise to the God
Alive inside my heart.
I tremble through the fall.
I tremble when we rise

And run from thunder.
I tremble when we rise
And run from thunder.

Daya. Dayadhvam.
Wash me over.
Daya. Dayadhvam.
Wash me over.
Daya. Dayadhvam.
Wash me over...
