Track Name: Uprise
Uprise
(Great Aunt Coleslaw)

Relax sit straight it's a new day
Suns out left out are you okay?
I wonder if you met me if you’d like me
It's over and under
It's now time
To uprise


Wake up to the shadow of the old ways
Find it in the open by the gateways
Living by the seconds in the minutes
It's over and under
It's now time to uprise


Walking through water thats up to my knees
No one is coming so I'll fall underneath
Someone was waiting for somebody else
Let's say goodbye then uprise

Uprise
Uprise
Uprise

Join me in the future uninvited
When I'm seeing forward im excited
Teach me when I'm screaming what's the meaning
It's over and under
It's now time to uprise


Walking through water that's up to my knees
No one is coming so I'll fall underneath
Someone was waiting for somebody else
Let's say goodbye then uprise
Track Name: Be a Good Boy
Be a good boy

Don’t forget to wash your elbows tonight
Don't forget to keep them clean
To be the man that travels time and space
Confidence is what you need

To reach a sound that’s inside your head
Close your eyes and go to sleep
To crack a smile and to raise the dead
Happiness is what you need

Don't go at it alone
It’s all I ask
Don't go at it alone
Don't go at it alone

Be a good boy
Be a good boy now
Be a good boy
Be a good boy now

I look at you and you are growing tall
I do not recognize you all
You’re a good boy when you want to be
You’re a good boy like me

Is it funny how you used to feel?
You did not know what is not real
And now you’re old and now you question me
You question all I’ll ever be

Don't go at it alone
It’s all I ask
Don't go at it alone
Don't go at it alone

You question me
I’ll question you

Be a good boy
Be a good boy now
Be a good boy
Be a good boy now


Be a good boy
Be a good boy now
Be a good boy
Be a good boy now
Track Name: You Think I Do This For You?
You think I do this for you?
(Great Aunt Coleslaw)

This particular dream
The momentary message burned my eyes
It left me blind

And as I walked into the sun
I’ll think of everyone and all we’ve done
My art has just begun

You call my name

You think I do this for you?
You think I do this for me?
You think I do this for anyone?

I think you’re afraid
I haven’t seen your act that makes you brave
I laugh at you and then say ha ha

I wrote this for you
I sing this song because it bothers you
Now you will sing it too

You call my name

You think I do this for me?
You think I do this for you?
You think I do this for anyone?

I wish I was the man
The greatest man
The man who saved your soul
The man who changed the world

You have to do this for you
You have to do this for me
You have to do this for everyone
