Timeless 04:18
Intentions Don’t always Meet expectations You’re always Being outrageous No one notices Makes you feel worthless But you are timeless Your contemporaries Irregardless Would never know it Pull at the heartstrings Pull at the eyelets Stretch out your mindset And you are flawless Forget to answer You are guileless As a receiver You are faultless Commit to memory Now you are timeless Now you are timeless Now you are timeless Intentions Don’t always Meet expectations You’re always Being outrageous No one notices Makes you feel worthless But you are timeless -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

It washes over you Like a wave, like a feeling It washes over you Like a shower, warm and healing When you’re not ready It can take you by surprise If you’re not steady Knock you right between the eyes It’s that feeling Like you’re floating on the ceiling You should be kneeling But you’re floating on the ceiling It’s that feeling Like you’re floating on the ceiling You should be kneeling But you’re floating on the ceiling We try to forget But we still haven’t got there yet It’s a familiar phase Do mind if I paraphrase When you’re uncertain It can knock you down inside You are still learning It’s okay if you don’t hide It’s that feeling Like you’re floating on the ceiling You should be kneeling But you’re floating on the ceiling It’s that feeling Like you’re floating on the ceiling You should be kneeling But you’re floating on the ceiling Ba, ba, ba Ba, ba, ba Ba, ba, ba Ba, ba, ba -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

I got that feeling That you got that feeling Barely contained atoms Split in your brain Recall the afterlife Slip down the drain You’ve gotta compromise To dull the pain Your mental picture it Can’t stand the rain A dream awakes you when You have trouble sleeping Because you could see where That plot line was leading I got that feeling That you got that feeling I see the loneliness Behind your eyes Stressin’ the future you Don’t compromise Caught up in spectacle Deep in the night Feeling the stress fracture Run through your life A dream awakes you when You have trouble sleeping Because you don’t know where That plot line was leading A dream awakes you when You have trouble sleeping Because you could see where That plot line was leading I got that feeling That you got that feeling I got that feeling That you got that feeling -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Factor the random Among the phantoms Loplop is on the rise Plunging in depths Too deep to fathom Or to imagine otherwise You watch your hand Reach for the pill On auto-pilot It’s such a thrill I watch my hand Reach in the till On auto-pilot It’s such a thrill The moon is cold But beautiful The eye without eyes It will control Your very soul Visible poetry in the sky Factor the random Among the phantoms Stranger than sorcery A loopy man Begat a bantam With drum-roll integrity I watch my hand Reach for the pill On auto-pilot It’s such a thrill You watch your hand Reach in the till On auto-pilot It’s such a thrill Factor the random Among the phantoms Loplop is on the rise They will control Your very soul With enigmatic lullabies -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Zeta-2 03:47
It’s gone to her head Her innocence has fled Her mind has lost the thread Zeta on the mend Wishes we all send Reality will bend It’s gone to her head Her innocence has fled Her mind has lost the thread Zeta on the mend Wishes we all send Reality will bend Zeta to the end Zeta till we bend Zeta to the zed Zeta one has fled Zeta two instead -- Lyrics by Andrew L. Jackson, music by Rick Cuevas and Andrew L. Jackson

Black crows know The lay of the land Vultures watch Us come and go Here in the suburbs With nowhere to go Can’t see much From where we stand We’ve got new Memories to make We can’t help But forsake Animals know Their way around this place If something’s gone, it’s Just something to replace They look at us and they know They look at us and they know They look at us and they know Can’t see much From where we stand We’ve got new Memories to make We can’t help But forsake Black crows know The lay of the land Vultures watch Us come and go Here in the suburbs With nowhere to go They look at us and they know They look at us and they know They look at us and they know -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Color of Sky 03:35
I been waiting For this moment My whole life Everything leading Up to this moment In my life Life is absurd And we’ve heard it all before Then someone comes Knockin’ on someone’s door We’re all waiting for that beautified vision Waiting for that expansive view Waiting for that moment when Long lost dreams come true But either way I’m watching it all go by And I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry And it feels like a river must run through me That I’m watching from the shore for eternity And it’s the color, the color of sky I been checking My emotions My whole life And conceding To the erosion My whole life The future’s imperfect When predictions don’t go as planned And the river is a mirror Reflecting all that I am We’re hoping for that beautified vision To give us an expansive view We’re waiting for that moment when Long lost dreams come true But either way I’m watching it all go by And I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry And it feels like a river must run through me Reflecting the clouds of eternity And it’s the color, the color of sky The color of sky I don’t know why But it’s the color of sky -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Feel It 04:40
Wish I could feel it that much But I don’t Wish I could say it like I mean it But I won’t Too much time has gone by Far too long Wish I could feel it But there’s something wrong Wish I could feel it But there’s something wrong Too much time has gone by For too long Is there something wrong with me Or does it permeate everything Can you feel it breaking you down All the way Is there something wrong with me Or does it permeate everything Can you feel it shaking you down All the way One day something grabs you And you don’t know why Sometimes you feel lost And you wonder why Maybe someone smiles Your soul touches the sky Often paths are crossed Never knowing why You never feel it like I do Nobody feels it less that you Too many nights have gone by Far too long Wish I could feel it and know it’s true Wish I could feel it like I used to Too many nights have gone by For too long One day something grabs you And you don’t know why Sometimes you feel lost And you wonder why Maybe someone smiles Your soul touches the sky Often paths are crossed Never knowing why Your wishes and dreams are calling So stop your stalling Doo doo doo doo doo doo All the way Your wishes and dreams are calling So stop your stalling Doo doo doo doo doo doo All the way -- Lyrics by Andrew Lawrence Jackson, music by Andrew L. Jackson and Rick Cuevas

Hey! Hey hey hey! Old and weird things have been happening all along But now something new and weird is happening What could possibly go wrong? It’s catching up to us It’s catching up to us We should have seen it coming Oh, we should have seen it coming Hey! Hey hey hey! We fall apart We struggle to recover But, it’s getting better We’ll pull ourselves together Another man is down Another grab for the crown We should have seen it coming Oh, we should have seen it coming Hey! Hey hey hey! Hey! Hey hey hey! Let go of the past But hang on to the mast The storm is brewing I thought you knew it Let go of the past But hang on to the mast The storm is brewing I thought you knew it -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

Give me just a little more space So I can replace my tentacled brain The milk doctor wants his revenge Settle down now my children For the revolution of the mind The trash compactor wants its revenge It’s the merman’s sacred pledge, aah It’s the milk doctor’s revenge And it’s pushing me over the edge Shape shifters need no Excuse for their mistakes It’s the UFO alien’s birthday Give me just a little more space So I can replace my tentacled brain The milk doctors drink the Kool-Aid It’s the merman’s sacred pledge, aah It’s the milk doctor’s revenge, aah It’s the merman’s sacred pledge, aah It’s the milk doctor’s revenge And it’s pushing me over the edge Over the edge Give me just a little more space So I can replace what’s left of my face Gone without a trace Gone without a trace Gone without a trace -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson

I ask myself who are you now A dreamer making all the rounds Been here before it’s deja vu Blessing from queen of voodoo I ask myself what does it mean Grasping for an elusive dream Strictly making time for this Balloon crossing the abyss Where did those special places go That we always thought were so Now I think the only way Is to reach you on the astral plane It’s the only way I never know what I will write ‘Till I get to the end of the night Keep on dreaming of a better world Where our flags are all unfurled I ask myself what happens next In this chapter or the next I tell myself I’m doing fine Remind myself to walk the line Where did those special places go That we always thought were so Now I think the only way Is to reach you on the astral plane It’s the only way I ask myself who are you now A dreamer making all the rounds Been here before it’s deja vu Blessing from queen of voodoo I ask myself what does it mean Grasping for an elusive dream Strictly making time for this Balloon crossing the abyss Where did those special places go That we always thought were so Now I think the only way Is to reach you on the astral plane -- Words and music by Andrew Lawrence Jackson
