Track Name: Hammer Chasing Nail - Second Star To the Right, Then Straight On Till Morning
Lately to me there hasn't been much of a scene just a few people holding on to anything.
Love and respect to some mean everything. Always searching for the in between.

A case and point that's pointless when it won't change a fuckin thing.

In another day, another time, another place there was unity, soon replaced by empty space.
We were young, sometimes blind, sometimes confused, but still to me it meant everything.

A case and point that's pointless when it won't change a fuckin thing.
Expecting new reactions while repeating. Isn't that "insane"?

I wanna manufacture a big boat. Grab sticks and leaves and everything that'll keep afloat.
And sail away to Never Neverland. Me, Peter Pan and Rufio will stay forever young.

A case and point that's pointless when it won't change a fuckin thing.
Expecting new reactions while repeating. Isn't that "insane"?
Track Name: Mr. Rent - Stampede
We're stranded here. There's no one else alive.
No one can hear. We're screaming for our lives.

It's getting harder just to breath knowing no one here will save you.

They're getting close don't make a sound. And pick your feet up off of the ground.
This isn't easy. We gotta take a chance come on let's go.

Wait for the right moment to light the fuse.


And here we are. It's him or me. How'd this ever come to be? They're blazing off, running scared, and i never been more aware.
I feel my heart beating out as my thoughts they cloud with doubt. It's time to go. Gotta trust my instincts and my gut.

Goodbye Perfection, hello Bixby. And it just hit me... Stampede.
