Track Name: Just Ain't Enough
Tell me that you understand
Takes more than a smile to be a friend
Love and honor and protect the soul
Keep it safe for years untold
Strength in the end is all you need

Catastrophic thoughts will mesmerize
Hate and rage will hypnotize
Everybody can groove at the same time
So open up your heart and free your mind
Shake off the chains, you know you can

Hugs ain't enough
Words ain't enough
Love ain't enough
Just ain't enough

Sometimes I feel that nothing is real when
Crying ain't enough and lying ain't enough but
Check all that stuff when nothing I say is
Just enough 'cause it just ain't enough

Simple solutions will save the day
Rip and tear those cobwebs away
The heart is a muscle with a mind
So don't think you're wasting time
Wishing upon a star
No matter how near or far
Faith in yourself is all you need
I said, faith in yourself is all you need

Hugs ain't enough
Words ain't enough
Love ain't enough
Just ain't enough
Track Name: Peach
Chaotic calamity collides with calm composure
So easily, you can die from overexposure
Unevenly, the will is propelled to desperate acts of soul
Regeneration!

Balance the sea with the earth
Simplicity is sublime to the undefined mind
Light feels his rebirth!

I beseech you discreetly I repeat
Replete with back-beat and the need to plant seeds
Earth sun and rain
Wind storm and pain
Can drain your brain if you don't retain a frame of reference

There was a young boy living on an island
His evil aunts never had him smiling
His only friend was a tiny spider
And in a giant peach is where he chose to hide
James, James, James!

In defense of the defenseless, my best guess to is stress
Change, change, change!

Evolution revolution restitution
Is the solution to the pollution of a collective heart

I beseech you discreetly I repeat
Replete with back-beat and the need to plant seeds
Earth sun and rain
Wind storm and pain
Can drain your brain if you don't retain a frame of reference
Track Name: Shade of Melancholy
There's a deep blue melancholy
Hiding inside my head
The weight of the world's upon me
But I just smile instead
What am I doing?
Crying in the night
Can I tell the world
How I feel inside?

Sing a song
Write a word
Everything is gonna be alright

We laugh at all the folly
'Cause folly disguises pain
I don't want to tell the story
But it's screaming inside my brain
The doctor gives me pills to keep me happy
But I still cry in the night
Can I tell the world
How I feel inside?

Sing a song
Write a word
Everything is gonna be alright
Track Name: Your Golden Rule
There's no denying the undeniable
There's no relying on the unreliable
There's no sleeping on the unsleepable
There's no creeping on the uncreepable

Take your golden rule and put it far away
I am not your fool, I will not dismay
I speak for the meek, the meek are not weak
The truth is what we seek
Listen to the words that I speak

There's no believing the unbelievable
There's no achieving the unachievable
There's no teaching the unteachable
There's no reaching the unreachable

Take your golden rule and put it far away
I am not your fool, I will not dismay
I speak for the meek, the meek are not weak
The truth is what we seek
Listen to the words that I speak
Track Name: Sheila
One day I was walking down the street
It started to rain
Then I saw this cute little girl
She even knew my name

I felt so embarrassed
My cheeks were all aflush
Then she touched my hand
And I felt like I got a rush

Her name was Sheila

Then I found myself walking up
A long staircase
She took out her keys and all of a sudden
We were in her place

Sat me down on the couch as she
started to massage my brain
Ooh then she said
I feel like I'm going insane

Her name was Sheila
