Track Name: Body and Mind
How much time will it take to make it to a place where I can stay?
How much time will it take? It's hard to see perspective right away.
How much time will it take to make it to a place where I feel clear?
It's hard to see perspective from so near.
It's easy on the body but hard on the mind.

Is my question a flaw?
I'll not know 'till I have the scope of time.
Can I peer through the lense,
And see are my priorities in line?
I'm alive and awake,
Or am I missing something I can't see?
A detriment invisible to me?
It's easy on the body but hard on the mind.

Easy on the body, but hard on the mind (many times).
Track Name: Perspective Blindness
Wish I was old enough to know
the things I'll miss the most,
To see in hindsight.

Perspective always seems to blind
us all in present time.
Can I see what I have here?

Can I see from the other side of me before it's too late?
'Cause I can't lose with a future point of view.
It's not too late.
It's not too late.

We've not the time to live the past
when the present moves so fast.
Can I live in this moment?

Years seem to pass with growing speed,
and I'm left to believe
that I see what I have here.

Can I see from the other side of me before it's too late?
'Cause I can't lose with a future point of view.
It's not too late.
It's not too late.
Track Name: Pittsburgh, I Love You
I have no memory
of more than one home.
The land I've been living in
every inch that I've grown.
It took 24 years
to finally see,
that my treasure lay here.
It lay all around me.

Pittsburgh, I love you
no clouds can hold you down.
There's something about you
like nothing else around.
You're a sleeper, a keeper,
you're the finest character steeper.
Pittsburgh, I love you yes I do.

Lately I'm gaining,
a travelers belt.
The stripes that I'm earning,
all the vibes that I've felt,
further drive down the nail
through the knot that's been tied.
No more question of why
from a spectrum so wide,
You're the only big apple of my eye.


Pittsburgh, I love you
no clouds can hold you down.
There's something about you
like nothing else around.
You're a sleeper, a keeper,
you're the finest character steeper.
Pittsburgh, I love you yes I do.
Track Name: Sun Goes Down
Sun goes down.
Sun goes down.
Sun goes down.
Sun goes down.

I'm staring at the stars now,
as they move across the sky.
They're sending me a signal,
to carry on the night.

Sun goes down.
I'm staring at the stars now.
Sun goes down.
As they move across the sky.
Sun goes down.
They're sending me a signal.
Sun goes down.
To carry on the night.
