Track Name: Lily
lily, I am driving alone
with that favorite tune and an empty heart
lily, I tried to say some words
before the cold cold night comes down
lily, I am so far away
from your scent and from your smile
lily, I am driving alone
thinking about you on this road

the moon casts a pale blue light
when was the last time I felt it?
when was it left behind
for a boring ready-made kind of life
I found out, I was chasing the meaning of living
and I, missing those places that I used to love

lily, hope I’m not too far away
from our dreams and from your heart
lily, do I still please you?
like when we took those photos hanging on your wall
lily, I am so far away
from your white skin and from your warm voice
lily, I am driving alone
thinking about you on this road

the moon casts a pale blue light
when was the last time I felt it?
when was it left behind
for the hundreds of ways to paint a life cheesy pink?
I found out, I was chasing the meaning of living
and I, missing those places that I used to love

lily, hope I’m not too far away
from our dreams and from your heart
lily, I am driving alone
thinking about you on this road

if the world is shutting down
it will all turn to black
hopeless dreams are taking over
do you realize? or try to close your eyes?
now I’m leaving...
Track Name: The Big Neon City
look, this city is brilliant
no one watches you or stops what you do
love in your tragedy
that is just another way to lie to yourself

look, this city welcomes you
the people struggle just to find some weekend love
look, what you’ve got in your hands its just crap
why do you still pretend to be smart all the time?

the neons never get to sleep in the night
the purple sky never gets dark
people are standing in the haze
voices are laughing everywhere

you got lost in too many signs
you got lost in too many aims
you got lost in too much desire
you got lost in too much lights

who did care about you seriously?
and who will give a hand when you're stumbling?
you are just nothing in this big neon city
oh boy, why don’t you try to raise your voice?

look, this city is brilliant
and these people’s lives are a mystery
love in your tragedy
that is just another way to lie to yourself

look, this city welcomes you
and It’s hard to get by but you don’t have to try
look, what you’ve done is just a waste of time
why do you still pretend to be busy all the time?
Track Name: A Crooked Insider
the sullen girl, why do you need to be alone?
I bet you look like a white elephant more than the actress
why can’t you wait? please just calm down
it’s 3 in the morning, still wear the scent of rose
spend up, eat up, and bite up everything
you and me, can’t hide from fear of getting old
open your eyes, you’re not a late bloomer any more
well right, you have big thoughts, in the world of substitute

light the neon
rolling in dough
chase a shadow
stuck in a “vision"
and safe in fame
break the walls
You wait till the end for a landslide to come

just listen to it
lo-fi speakers,
look what you've gained
crushed machines,
light your own way
broken headlamps
You wait till the end for an affair to come

you’re like a crow, why do you need to be so loud?
I bet you sound like a preacher more than a friend of them
count your “friends", and count your money up
It’s 2 in the morning, still waiting them to show up
spend up, eat up, and bite up everything
you and me, can’t hide from fear of getting old
open your eyes, why still live in mere dream?
stuck under the gravity with your kind of “philosophy"
   
light the neon
rolling in dough
chase a shadow
stuck in a “vision"
and safe in fame
break the walls
You wait till the end for a landslide to come

just listen to it
lo-fi speakers,
look what you've gained
crushed machines,
light your own way
broken headlamps
You wait till the end for an affair to come
Track Name: Don't Only Be Just A Part Of The Story They'll Tell
no, you ain't a fake
you always right
you, who I adore
why you hate stage lights?

you, trying to look tough
but I know who you are
why do you always try to make a smile with such a nonsense joke?
probably, you'll start to doubt neighbors surrounding you
do you seriously think they make you satisfied? …no

stay proud, stay proud of yourself
why you about to let it be?
don’t let them laugh
don’t let them laugh at you
don’t give yourself
don’t give yourself to them

why give them the time?
oh well, be true to yourself
all i know, you ain't fake
alright...
Track Name: Need More Time
need a little light to see the way i go
need a little confidence to be myself
need a little time to make it out
and I need more time now

need a little light to find the things I want
need a little confidence to stand alone
need a little time to know the place I stand
and I need more time now

I wanna be forgotten
and i don’t wanna speak any single word
and I don’t wanna open my eyes
I just wanna fall into sweetest dream
now leave me alone, and then find me again
i know you will recognize me just selfish liar
I just need more stillness
oh darling, please don’t open this door
just need more time...

need a little light to see the way i go
need a little confidence to be myself
need a little time to make it out
and I need more time now

need a little light to shine them all
need a little confidence to raise my voice
need a little time to find out what happened
so I need more time now
Track Name: What a Beautiful Place
look up to the sky and my eyes are burned
why it always has to be complex?
I can’t stand alone
but why doesn’t no one knows the solution?

don't believe the things you wanted
don't lie to yourself
i thought i've been ready from the beginning
I think I truly feel alone
oh dear, will you just keep smiling forever?

why do you always accept me so?
your tenderness, sometimes makes me nervous
I want to run back to you
oh daring, what was wrong and where should I belong?

look at the outside, birds are singing
what a beautiful place
oh daring, but now I am so far away
I think I really want to hear your voice
why do you just keep smiling even now?
Track Name: All of Us
as like a little child
I’m only sleeping in a dream
well, yes I am nobody
go ahead laugh at even your heart

that’s why I am still standing here
we’re just waiting for a brighter light

almost everyone in this ship
trying to behave like someone else
trying to have compromised aim
but still stuck in brilliance of life

that’s why all of us are standing here
we’re just waiting for a brighter light
what we're waiting for is just wind blows
I think we can shine a brighter light
Track Name: On the Way Home
keep on running in the morning glow
I’ve just arrived to the edge of the deepest green woods
watching the yellow flowers blowing in the wind
passing through oceanic fields of gold

on the way home, I'm on the way home...

it was good living in the big city
but now I realize this tired existence of mine
watching the yellow flowers blowing in the wind
you’re asking me “where are you?” but I don’t even know

on the way home, I'm on the way home...
Track Name: Dozed
rain beats on the windshield, lampposts keep glowing
a night in the parking lot, trying to sleep in the back seat

dreaming of your voice
I was dozing off
dreaming of your voice
I was dozing off

if the moon casts a pale light in the street
i could find my way back to where you sleep

dreaming of your voice
I was dozing off
dreaming of your voice
I was dozing off

rain beats on the windshield, lampposts keep glowing
when will it be? not really sure, but it won't take long

I was dozing off
Track Name: Twilight
here's the place, I dreamed badly more than once
when I was a little boy, the city was shining

i believed in things that i can see with my eyes
and I doubted things that i can not touch

the neon lights glowing loud and it makes my eyes blind
once held me tight, and kicked me out
the brilliant night of this big city

I was awake all night
oh I was there, in the twilight

now I’ve just realized, in the crowds of people
what I wanted turned out to be just a fiction in my head

it is so far, and also close, the distance of me and you
and once again, under this bright neon lights, I call your name

I was awake all night
oh I was there, in the twiligh

mid night, the city lights glowing and painting this night
everyone hates somebody, everyone wants somebody to love
the man who stands alone looks around sheds some tears
in the scene of city light. it’s going on.

I was awake all night
oh I was there, in the twilight
I was awake all night
wish we’ll be there, in the twilight
