Track Name: Lunar Sunrise pt. 1
Is there anyone out there
Who feels this way?
I just want to be in love again

So watch out for me
Don't give me a wink
Unless you mean something by it

Until then, just stay away
Or I'll fall for you again

If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep talking, keep smiling
If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep smiling, just breathing

Is there anyway out there
Sick of games
Who just wants to be in love again?

Let's skip this part
I've been here before
I've been here before

I'm sorry I can't be shy
Every time I see those eyes
No, no

If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep talking, keep smiling
If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep smiling, just breathing

If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep talking, keep smiling
If you want me to fall for you, yea
Keep smiling, just breathing

Just breathing
Track Name: Hopes Up High
Do do doo

I haven't felt this way in the longest time
It's kinda like I'm walking all over sunshine
Just thinking of the day when you'll be mine
I can't think of another word that rhymes
But that's okay 'cause

I'm keeping my hopes up high
I'm keeping my hopes up high
I'm keeping my hopes up high
And you can fly up here with me
Just don't let me down

Do do doo

They're all givin' us the hardest time
But you know that timing is never right, noooo
If you've never learned quite how to fly
Just hold on and try, because

I'm keeping my hopes up high
I'm keeping my hopes up high
I'm keeping my hopes up high
And you can fly up here with me
Just don't let me down

I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
And if you start to fall
We'll fall together

Don't look down
No.
Don't look down.
No oh oh ooo oh oh.
Don't look down.
No.
Don't look down, my friend, because

I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
And you can fly up here with me (up high)
Just don't let me down

I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
I'm keeping my hopes up high (up high)
And if you start to fall
We'll fall together

I'm keeping my hopes
I said I'm keeping my hopes
I'm keeping my hopes
I'm keeping my
I'm keeping my
I'm keeping my hopes
Said I'm keeping my hopes up high
Track Name: Dance to the Rhythm
You and I
Our clocks are tickin' by the minute
But we don't know it, we don't get it
This life together is a limited time offer

So why, why're we runnin' around and fightin'
Mindless barkin' and bitin'?
If we all want peace,
then why all the dyin'?

Let's stop the whole world for a minute
And let us just

Dance to the rhythm
Sing with the melody
Dance to the rhythm
Sing with the melody

You and I
Our clocks are tickin' by the minute
But we don't know it, we don't get it
This life together is a limited time offer

So why, why're we runnin' around and fightin'
Mindless barkin' and bitin'?
If we all want peace,
then why all the dyin'?

Let's stop the whole world for a minute
And let us just

Dance to the rhythm
Sing with the melody
Dance to the rhythm
Sing with the melody

If you want to, then you need to
If you want to, you had best get on it soon
If you want to, then you need to
If you want to, you had best get on it soon

Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa
Sing with the melody
Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa
Sing with the melody

Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa
Sing with the melody
Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa
Sing with the melody

Dance to the rhythm, ba da ba ba baa
Sing with the melody
Drop all our problems
Live life in harmony
Track Name: Seventy Ninety
I've got a love hate relationship
With seventy-nine and ninety
I've got a love hate relationship
With seventy-nine and ninety

They bring me to you
And you to me
But they're just a little long, you see

Just a few more months, baby
Just a few more months, baby
Just a few more months, baby
We'll be okay

Just a few more months, baby
Just a few more months, baby
Just a few more months, baby
We'll be okay
Track Name: Keep Me Insane
[Verse1]
No one ever has a problem with John
He is always on time
He does his best to blend in with the crowd
He's institutionalized

It started back in elementary school.
Bullies laughed when he walked.
He started trying to normalize
Himself, even the way that he talked

[Chorus]
(Oh just keep me insane)
I don't wanna be normal
Cause normal is boring, and boring is lame

There's enough normal people
I'd rather be quirky and slightly insane

[Verse2]
Yea, no one's ever had a problem with John
Since elementary school
He shops at gap, drinks bud light on tap; he's a sap
But always tries to act cool

He works hard.
He mows the yard.
He cleans his car.
Every saturday!

He follows trends
Never offends
He sees his friends
Every 6 months.

[goto Chorus]

I got a visit from the ghost of Corporate future
He said that I'm becoming just like John
No one's ever had a problem with him
Except me, except me, except me

[Break it down now]

[goto Chorus]
Track Name: Lunar Sunrise pt. 2
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone?

Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone?

Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone?

Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone out there?
Is there anyone?
Is there anyone?

If you want to fall for you, yea
Keep talking, keep smiling
If you want to fall for you, yea
Keep smiling, just breathing

If you want to fall for you, yea
Keep talking, keep smiling
If you want to fall for you, yea
Keep smiling, just breathing

Whoa oh.
