Track Name: ROLL ON
Been raining for months and it's starting to swell
Roll, roll, roll on
The water we drink, you know, it comes from that well
Roll, roll, roll on
Oh lord let me see

Look back on the offer that you put down too late
Roll, roll, roll on
There's a rhyme and a reason for every delay
Roll, roll, roll on
Oh lord let me breathe

It might not happen exactly as planned
Roll, roll, roll on
There are times that are meant to be left in his hands
Roll, roll, roll on
Oh lord show me

How would you learn son if you didn't even break it
Roll, roll, roll on
That day is gone now there's more room to make it
Roll, roll, roll on
Oh lord set me free
Roll, roll, roll on

Track Name: REFLECTIONS
Look at the reflection before the vision leaves
Shows me the same thing what with your telling me
Signs are always changing
Words that seem to bleed

Feed my imperfection while rolling on concrete
No needle for the player, no blower for the leaves
I'm going to leave it here with you

Time has left the scene
You begin to see
No fear for tomorrow or worry for the past
Just gotta make it last

Pull on the receiver, there's a message here for you
Flow on the nine stories and tell her that you're 22
Blue's the colour of your eyes
When you're flying high

Crossed over broadway where St. Augustine now lies
Passed by the names handwritten on the tiles
I'm going to leave it here with you

Time has left the scene
You begin to see
No fear for tomorrow or worry for the past
Just got to make it last

Look at the reflection before the vision leaves
Shows me the same thing what with your telling me
Signs are always changing
Words that seem to bleed

Track Name: SIMPLY I
If you're looking through the lens with a simple eye
Definitions of the truth will keep you dignified
Things don't really need to feel the same
Stay light, keep your eye focused on the frame

How I forget about those little things
I jump the gun too quick for me to please my kings
Maybe next time I'll remember the words you said to me
But for now I'm gonna cry to my mama and bra, when it all repeats

If you're looking through the lens with a simple eye
Definitions of the truth will keep you dignified
Things don't really need to feel the same
Stay light, keep your eye focused on the frame

Satisfaction the naked eye that looks at me
Joker didn't speak for ten straight days to try to see
And as he watched, a picture came so vividly
There's no control when you're mind is full, cause it all repeats.

If you look in through the lens with a simple eye
Definitions of the truth will keep you dignified
Things don't really need to feel the same
Stay light, keep your eye focused on the frame

Track Name: SMOKE LIKE IT'S 2012
He came through the smoke of a dark alley
The look in his eyes said he came for me
A red cotton scarf and a machete
He stood gave me chills as stared at me
So I asked him, straight up, "Are you my genie?"
He said, "Oh no, oh no, oh no"
"Oh no, no, no"
"I come from a land down under, from 3000 BC"
Before Christ!

Then I asked him if he could take me down the railroad tracks
(Down the railroad tracks)
He said yeah, but boy you've got to relax

Let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Yeah let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Cause there's no more time, no more time to dwell (Smoke smoke smoke smoke)

You wonder why the ocean is rising
Asking why the honey bees are dying
And the Prince of Pot is crying
He's locked up!

There's a message from every Messiah
Here's the one coming straight from the Maya

Then I asked him if he could take me down the railroad tracks
(Down the railroad tracks)
He said yeah, but boy you've got to relax

Let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Yeah let's smoke like it's 2012
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Cause there's no more time, no more time to dwell
(Smoke smoke smoke smoke)
Straight up!

Track Name: SANTA FE
What an afternoon, it's been eight years since you rang
So I came right by we talked until the morning sang
And as I gave that glance to pull myself from our sweet trance
It seemed you thought I'd stay you pulled me back and blocked my way, you said

Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
I need your connection
I've got no direction
To guide me today
Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
The wind blows too strong here
I don't belong here
In Santa Fe

Her eyes the shone but much too brightly
Her smile was there but her teeth were clenched so tightly
Moment so well conceived she realized I just might leave
She smiled with all that shame but even so again she sang, she said

Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
I need your connection
I've got no direction
To guide me today
Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
The wind blows too strong here
I don't belong here
In Santa Fe

Four days gone by, she called me twice with no reply
At half passed nine, ringing from my entrance chime
It was a friend of hers, I helped a bit she overheard
You thought you've done your deed, well I'm sorry sir, you're in too deep, she said

Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
I need your connection
I've got no direction
To guide me today
Where are you going
Why are you leaving
Why won't you stay
The wind blows too strong here
I don't belong here
In Santa Fe
