I live my life Time goes by I'm ticking down the clock Until I die I move on I'm always moving on I find it hard to hold on To things before they're gone You live your life, and I'll do mine I'm busy just existing, I'm busy just existing We live our lives Those passing sighs We're traipsing down through time And there's no why We proceed We always have the need We lead ourselves to we But there's no place for me You live your life, and I'll do mine I'm busy just existing, I'm busy just existing And I know that you would wish the best for me  (and I know you would wish the best) And I know that you would want me to be happy  (and I know you would lift me up) And I know that you can't see that I'm just treading water  (I'm just floating in the sea) And I know that you can't help but make me feel much smaller But I ask of you: Please live your life, and I'll focus on mine I'm busy just existing, I'm busy just existing I'm busy just existing, I'm busy just existing  (I'm busy living my life)

Nova knows it's hopeless Nova knows it's hopeless Her wants and thoughts are overwrought And yet she still has hope Nova knows it's hopeless Nova knows it's hopeless Her dreams of queens are out of reach And yet she still has hope Nova, Nova, please understand The world's not out to get you, let it give you a hand Oh, Nova, Nova, know you deserve the best And don't you ever dare settle for less Nova knows it's hopeless Nova knows it's hopeless Her love is somewhere high above And yet she still has hope Nova knows it's hopeless Nova knows it's hopeless Her heart has travelled oh so far And yet she still has hope Nova, Nova, even though it's hard When the going gets oh so tough, hold yourself in high regard And Nova, Nova, some will push you down And don't you ever let those folks stick around Be a supernova

Fever Dream 04:17
I'm just a fever dream Nothing is as it seems Whether I'm awake or asleep It doesn't matter to me Slow march out of bed Feel the pain throb in your head I'm just a fever dream Nothing is as it seems Whether I'm awake or asleep It doesn't matter to me Summer sun that I can see Feels like it has been weeks Shiver under blanket warm Melting, let's get the AC on I'm just a fever dream Nothing is as it seems Whether I'm awake or asleep It doesn't matter to me Summer sun that I can see Feels like it has been weeks I'm just a fever dream Nothing is as it seems Whether I'm awake or asleep It doesn't matter to me Fever dream is waking up again

Day Off 03:18
I'm taking a day off to see if I can get back on track I'm spending time in the Rockies, walking off the beaten path I'd like to learn about myself, I'd like to know more about who I am I'd like see the woods, I'd like to learn to give a damn And the clock reads eight forty-five And I still am standing upright And I ask you for directions But you still don't know where I'm going I'm taking a breather to see if I can get all my stuff done I'm wearing pajamas even up until and through the afternoon I'd like to walk through California, I'd like to take a ride through Washington state I'd like to see the world around me and I know I need to get away And the clock reads nine thirty-two And my packed bag sits by my shoes Where would you go if you could go anywhere? Would you want to see the world, would you see the sights? Would your move be permanent, or would it be an accident? And would you ever go back? I'm a distance further and I'm trying to increase the space between I am loving everything, the sounds, the people, everything I've seen I am playing every picture as a movie dancing through my head I am wishing that it could be real, and yet I sit and dream instead

about

Stay tuned. There is more on the horizon.
