Track Name: Lucky
Can you imagine
Must have been one in a million
And I feel so lucky
Just to know your name
And I keep having dreams that I
Have a second before I die
And I feel so lucky
Just to be alive

While drifting through it
Somehow I dodged the bullet
When my whole life flashes
I stop and close my eyes
I can’t imagine
I’m just one in a million
Still I feel so lucky
Just to be alive

You won’t remember
But you played the revelator
The fog was lifted
By the words you said
You said
You’re not just anyone
You’re one part of a million
And you may feel lonely
You’re not the only one
(Instrumental verse thing/ buildup)

Can you imagine
Must have been one in a million
And I feel so lucky
Just to be alive
Track Name: No Promised Land
When you can’t trust the image
From a photo booth
What you’re told is beautiful
Becomes the truth
The tech guru worships
What he won’t understand
In the algorithm
A new god’s hand
Black box commandments
But no promised land

Ten thousand copies of
A hurried thought
Engineered perfection
Boxed and left to rot
The thought leader gushes
That you’ll reap tenfold
In her new best seller
See the dream unfold
Obliterate your consciousness
And never grow old

In the algorithm
A new god’s hand
Black box commandments
Nno promised land
In the algorithm
A new god’s hand
Black box commandments
No promised land
Track Name: Don't Waste My Time
weighed pros
weighed cons
but it didn't quite add up right
with my intuition

you're asking for a reason
well the season's changing boy
i'm changing too

i swear
i'm never coming back again
i thought i was among friends
you hung me out to dry
i never could read your mind


it's not indecision
i don't belong to you
and i know you're confused
but i really don't care

i swear i'm never coming back again
i thought i was among friends
you hung me out to dry
i never could read your mind

don't waste my time
don't waste my time
don't waste my time
don't waste my time

i swear i'm never coming back again
i thought i was among friends
you hung me out to dry
i never could read your mind
