Track Name: Nothin' Lasts
I remember when, time went slow, and we thought we would live forever. But now, I know, nothing ever lasts forever.
Track Name: Free to Fly
I don't wanna think about you anymore, I gotta get you outta my mind.
You had me nailed to the ground before, but now I'm free to fly.

I loved you for so long-
It seemed like we can't go wrong.
I loved you, so strong,
But now, you're gone.

You told me 'keep off the grass and kill for peace-
obey the law, and trust the police.'
But me I gotta live by a higher code,
It's my own damn truth, let life flow.
Track Name: A Part of Thee
When will you see how much, it is a part of thee?
