Album Two Lyrics

1. Open Up Your Eyes

Clever is as clever does.
How’s the whether, how’s the whether?
A wise man doesn’t hold a grudge
Not forever, maybe never.
They come to you in a disguise
Tell you unforgiving lies.
It’s so very natural, it’s so very natural
To open up your eyes
And notice all strangers.
Be well advised
To recognize danger.
He was born in a manger.
People use him to
Change your behaviors!

An honest man will never budge
Just for pleasure, Just for pleasure.
A holy man will surely judge,
How’s the whether, how’s the whether?
They come to you so well disguised.
They tell you unsuspecting lies.
It’s so very natural, it’s so very natural
To open up your eyes
And notice all strangers.
Be well advised
To recognize danger.
He was born in a manger.
People use Him to
Change your behaviors!

I wouldn’t say so just because,
Hoping we might stay together.
Clever is as clever does.
How’s the whether? How’s the whether?

Open up your eyes
And notice all strangers.
Be well advised
To recognize danger.
He was born in a manger.
People use Him to
Change your behaviors!

Open up your eyes.
Open up your eyes.
He was born in a manger.
People use Him to change your behaviors.

2. Founding Fathers

Mock not or jest anything important
Break no jest with a sharp biting tongue
Never laugh at your own miscalculations
And never underestimate the young when they’re young

(Chorus)
We all are something
And we came from nothing
And we do the things we want to do.
We can turn it around and
Turn it upside down.
But it’s up to us to keep it in tune.
Squaring squares that get out of square.
Reducing all the possible error.

Talk not behind people who are worthy
Let your light so shine your good truth
A city up on a hill cannot be hidden
Father forgive them for they know not what they do.
And you know that it’s true.
(Chorus)

Mock not or jest anything important
Break no jest with a sharp biting tongue
(Chorus)

No one said that life would be fair.

3. Knock Knock Knock

This is kind of like a rat race
This is kind of like a free fall
This is kind of like a sad face
Underneath of it all
And I just want you to hear my song
I just want you to sing along

(Chorus)
Knock Knock, who’s there?
Does anybody really care?
Can you hear me making a call?
Knock Knock, who’s there?
This is something I could share
But nobody listens at all.
I could scream and shout
‘Til my voice runs out and
Still nobody hears a sound.
Tick tock, such a pity
Everybody is too busy
Saving face and running around.

It’s kind of like a car chase
It’s kind of like a know it all
It’s kind of like a dark place
Where nobody calls.
And I just want you to hear my song.
And I just want you to sing along.

(Chorus)

I’m still unknown.
But don’t you know that I’m a believer.
And an heir to the throne.
We’re torn by war
But we are saved by the sword in the stone.

And I just want you to hear my song.
And I just want you to sing along.

(Chorus)

4. Traveling Man

Man is what he thinks of himself
And I love
The essence of our nature
As below so above.
Life only comes in two options
Bad / Good.
And if you ask me if I wasn’t
I would tell you that I was anything
But only it’s up to me.
I can say I want a thing
But only as if I please.

(Chorus)

Are you traveling man?
Are you a traveling man?
Are you traveling man?
Are you a traveling man?

Girl is what she thinks of herself
And I love
Her essence of existence
Sent from heaven above.
She is tickled like the feather
Of an ocean front dove.

And if she asked me if I wasn’t
I would tell her that I was anything
But only it’s up to me.
I can say I want a thing
But only as if I please.

I can say I want a thing
But only it’s up to me.
I can say I want a thing
But hell when it’s up to you.

(Chorus)

Do you think when Satan blinks
He still has his eyes on you?
Do you think or doublethink?
I’m searching for any clues.

I can say I want a thing
But only it’s up to me.
I can say I want a thing
But hell when it’s up to you.

(Chorus)

5. The Guards

Rise and shine,
Open up your eyes.
Do you see the signs?
Can you see the light?
When it’s out of sight for you
It’s out of mind.

(Chorus)

The guards they all have different names
But there’s only one way through the gate
And you’re the only one who can decide.
I choose.
Do you think that you could understand?
I hope you understand.
Doors will open for you
Where there were never doors before.
Do you think that you could understand?
I hope you understand.
There’s a trap door that leads to war.
We make the choice for either / or.

Hatred binds when you’re drawing lines.
Can you see the smiles?
Can you see the crimes?
When it’s out of sight for you
It’s out of mind.

(Chorus)

Do you think that you could understand?
I hope you understand.
Doors will open for you
Where there were never doors before.

Do you think that you could understand?
I hope you understand.
There’s a trap door that leads to war.
We make the choice for either / or.

Do you, do you, do you
Do you understand?
Do you, do you
Doors will open for you.
Do you, do you
Think that maybe you could ever try to understand?
Do you, do you?

6. Mazes And Riddles

Keep smiling and journey Easternly
To the ocean shore
To find my Princess Fatimah
And search for truth and folklore
They smile down on me infinitely
I’m just reflecting upon
But designing mazes and riddles
I have never wanted more
I have never wanted more

(Chorus)

Yes it’s true that I want me to do
All those things that I want to do
But you keep turning me on
You’re turning me off
You’re making me go
You’re making me stop
Sounds like Shakespeare
It is such a tragedy
That you keep making me come
And making me go
You’re making me high
You’re making me low
You’re driving me crazy

Keep smiling and journey Easternly
To the ocean shore
To find the illuminati
And search for truth and folklore
They smile down on me intimately
I am just reflecting as their pawn
But designing mazes and riddles…
I have never wanted more.
I have never wanted more.

(Chorus)

Where is my Princess Fatimah?
Where is my Princess Fatimah?
Where is my Princess Fatimah?
I have never wanted more.
Never wanted more.

7. Brainwash

They try and wash the sounds from my mind.
They tell me everything will be alright.
They try to tell me these things
But what they don’t know…
Everything’s not fine
And I want to tell them why.
Don’t let them wash the sounds from my mind.

(Chorus)

Their will, they talk.
What do they want from me?
They ask for what is and what will never be.
They try and show me they’re everything.
What they don’t know, what they don’t know
Is what they’ll, never see.

They try and wash the tears from my eyes.
They give me my social disguise.
They keep me locked inside the dark
And hold me down when I try and seek the light.
I’m gonna seek light every day of my life.

(Chorus)

Don’t let them brainwash your mind.
Don’t let them brainwash your mind.
Don’t let them brainwash your mind.
Don’t let them brainwash your mind.

8. Pretty Colors

I see pretty colors
Surrounding one another.
I see pretty lights
Especially at night
And I…
Love my eyes.
And I…
Love my eyes.

(Chorus)

I’d never bow down before any king.
Sometimes I’m quiet
And sometimes I sing.
I understand all of the value you bring.
But I just need you to be free.
‘Cause I’ve seen the light.

I see pretty colors surrounding all the lovers
I see wrong from right.
Morning and night
And I…
Love my mind.
And I…
Love my mind.

(Chorus)

Yeah, I’ve seen the light.
I’ve seen the light!
I’ve seen the light.

9. Genius Is

I’ve got a special love for God
And you don’t get to see it.
I’ve got a special love for life
And you don’t get to be in it.

(Chorus)

But I’m not alone.
Who will cast the first stone?
I’ve got a special love for God
And you don’t get to see it.
The genius is insane.
And I’m a genius!

I’ve got a special love for light.
My reputation precedes me.
I’ve got a special love for love.
Whether or not you believe me.

(Chorus)

I’ve got a special love for God
And you don’t get to see it.
I’ve got a special love for life
And you don’t get to be in it.

Genius is insane.
And I’m a genius!

Who who?
The genius is insane.
Who who?
The genius is insane.
Who who?
The genius is insane.
Who who?
And I’m a genius!

10. Learned Behavior

I’ve messed up in your eyes
Not bad but pretty nice
You can put my picture on the wall
But your lies to me suffice
Render ancient advice
Reminds me not of this at all

(Chorus)

They thought that they could make me understand
Living my entire life under their command
Estimation under ruled!
I am not so easily fooled!
Why would you take me for so slow?
Destination over you!
My frustrations over ruled!
Why would you take me for so damn slow?

This world not very nice
Listen to my advice
Hate is learned behavior and that’s all
But we are much colder than ice
And we all will pay the price
Another system has to fall

(Chorus)

11. Confusion

The older we get the sooner we die.
I want to be the real me,
So I might as well try.
I have all of the questions to being free.
There’s no time for answers if you could see.
And I’ll take the chances that you say I waste
Because all of your confusion I can taste.
You find my wrongs and
You hold them up high.
Splendid is the man avoiding those lies.

(Chorus)

I never wanted anything from you
But now I ask for the truth.
Never wanted anything more or less
Now I must digress.
You never know what
Others are going through.

You can ask me it’s true,
I’d do anything for you.

You come to me in my dreams.
I never want to wake up
As lonely as that seems.
I’ll be flying around avoiding time
When nothing is worth a million and
Nothing’s worth a dime.
Nobody telling me what I’m supposed to do.
This is my own little game
Filled with life long clues.
If you say the word then I’ll make it rhyme.
I’m tripping on a cool dream
And I’m feeling fine.

(Chorus)

12. We Are

The history we make
The laws that we have invented
The wars that we started and
The progress we have prevented.
The times we were worried about ourselves
When something more was needed.
The advice that we never took
When our ego was defeated by id.

BUT THE SUN STILL SHINES
And the sun still falls
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?

The people who we gave our love
The ones who we thought we hated
The money that we never earned
The happiness we traded
The circles that we ran around
When acting like we made it.
The mirrors we used to hide our smiles
For the world has us so paraded.

BUT THE SUN STILL SHINES
And the sun still falls
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?
THE MOON STILL WAITS ALL DAY
Because she always wants to follow
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?

The history we make
The laws that we have invented
The wars that we started and
The progress we have prevented.

BUT THE SUN STILL SHINES
And the sun still falls
THE MOON STILL WAITS ALL DAY
Because she always wants to follow
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?
Are we proud of who we are? (WE ARE.) Are we proud of who we are?

13. Thirty Two

When you are feeling out of love
You can listen to my song.
And if it makes you feel good
You can smile and sing along.
Yeah, we’ll sing about love.
Yeah, we’ll sing about love.

And if there comes a point in time
Where you desire more
And if you are willing to fight for it
Just know what you’re fighting for.
Yeah, fight for love.
Yeah, fight for love.

I know that you will find it.
And I know that you will fall in love.

And if you’ve been searching high and low
For something that you can’t find.
Stop and close your eyes, my dear.
It all happens inside of the mind.
Yeah, I’m talking about love.
Yeah, I’m talking about love.

All of the beautiful things
Are reflected with light.
And anything you could
Ever want or need
It happens inside.

You can sing it again, let
Love be your best friend, and
The light that shines inside, love
Seven colors wide, love.
There’s thirty­two different ways
To make yourself feel amazing, my love.
