Track Name: Rooftops
Rooftops / Forest Pooky

It's getting hard for you to stand the flow
Of getting high but feeling low
But it's all perfect you're just normal
Cause everyone around is a clone
And you're an open book that no one wants to read
Unreleased words the hatred that you feed

From the rooftops we're bailing out
Some might come close to check you out

This is peaceful quiet comfortable
But no one ever told you so
The sound of silence is a miracle
That we'll all get to hear some time
As we have all been searching a shorter path to be
Unleash the chains of your heart and soul
You might believe

From the rooftops we're bailing out
Some might come close to check you out
Everyone knows we're freaking out
This might not stop
We're bailing out, we're bailing out

For many years now I've been walking crossing many alleys
Corrupting every step I made
We never knew what we've been searching or fighting for
I'm losing grip when you lose faith

From the rooftops we're bailing out
Some might come close to check you out
Everyone knows we're freaking out
This might not stop
We're bailing out, we're bailing out
Track Name: Lullabies
Lullabies / Forest Pooky

Sometimes I remind myself
Alone in the dark
Monsters crawling all around my bedroom floor
Cat headed sharks
When I felt their breath upon me
I would pull up the sheets and close my eyes to hide discreetly
And disappear completely

I'm invincible when I'm invisible
When my eyes are shut, closed
I'm invincible

I would stay awake real late
To make sure their gone
Then I'd sneak out of my bed
To check the closet's locked

But the danger now came from the window
Monstrous shadows reaching for my pillow
Whispering so low

Lullabies were sung to those who cry
Lullabies were sung to those afraid of the dark

So good night, sleep tight
'cause bed bugs won't bite
Good night, sleep tight
Cause bed bugs won't bite hard

I'm invincible when I'm invisible
When my eyes are shut, closed
I'm invincible
Track Name: Three weeks playing dead
Three weeks playing dead / Forest Pooky



Where do you hide now?
Three weeks playing dead
Communication's running low
The distance may not be the cause
But one hell of a conclusion

Ten years in a team is a long way
Remember where you come from
You're still part of the frame

But sometimes I stare
At the pictures sadly
And just throw them down the stairs
Meanwhile it's deep and hurting
That the smallest clocks
Just won't stop ticking

When showing nothing's wrong
Is all that matters
When you'd rather bite your tongue

I know it's over
You broke out of silence
'Cause you just needed to let it all go
It's true
You've made a stupid move
Scared the shit out of everyone
'Cause you just needed to let it all go
