Track Name: It Doesn't Even Matter
I tried and tried and no one knew.
I cried and died for very, very few.
It doesn't even matter.

I boldly flew where no one dared.
I faced the crowd but nobody was there.
It doesn't even matter.

I wrote a song of hope, but no one knew to listen.
I fought the creatures no one else could see.

I made a change. I followed rules.
I got in line like all the other fools.
It doesn't even matter.

I wore a smile, I cut my hair.
I said hello. But no one even cared.
It doesn't even matter.

Follow your dream, they say, uh huh, and then they sell you toothpaste.
It's all for sale. They don't know how it feels.

Oh, what can I do? I can't just run and hide.
When so much is wrong, it would be wrong to let it slide.
I'm afraid to face another day,
And turn around and say,
It doesn't even matter!

Where is the road, the light, the way,
The path you're supposed to follow?
The goal, the inner soul, the reason why?
Track Name: Vacation
Got to get away. The screaming's deep inside us.
Say it's fine and get in line, and that's how they divide us.
Got to find a better way, the one that we've forgotten.
This is not the real world. Let's find the one we're not in.

Heading out to the great wide open,
Many miles from anywhere but here.
Gonna find a new solution.
Gonna leave this institution.

Get out of the way. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
We're leaving today. Let's take a vacation. We need a vacation.

Can't you feel the fire? It's down to just an ember.
Smell the glow and then you know. It starts when you remember.
Can't you hear the trumpet call? It calls you to adventure.

Can't you see that it's the season?
Time to find the reason you were born.
No way we're gonna do their bidding.
We're not kids and we're not kidding.

Get out of my brain. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
Get on to the plane. We need a vacation of our own creation.

The ancient ship is sinking.
Let's leave and leave 'em thinking.

And when the doors are open, brilliant colors stream into your eyes.
The sunshine heals what's broken, takes you to a truth that never dies.
You'll see the new world dawning, far beyond the teaching and the lies.
They say we've got our freedom. If that's true than we don't need 'em.

Today is the day. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
I'll show you the way. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.

We're under attack. We'll make a vacation, we'll make a vacation.
We're taking it back. The latest creation is leaving the station.

Get on to the train. We need a vacation, we need a vacation.
Get on to the plane. We need a vacation of our own creation.
Track Name: I Know We'll Find a Way
There you go. Oh, it hit me like a hurricane.
What you said, I couldn't understand.
In your world, I am nothing but a dream you had.
Now you say, the dream was never real.
I don't know.

Oh no, you're not leaving.
I will keep believing.
You'll stay -
I know we'll find a way.

Don't go. Stop pretending.
That's not how it's ending.
You'll stay -
I know we'll find a way.

Close your eyes. There was magic when I held your hand.
Close your eyes and tell me it's not real.
When we touched I could take you to another land.
I could feel the way to make you feel.
Don't tell me.

I know what you're saying
You'll talk, but you're staying
Ok -
I know we'll find a way.

Go on - you get distant.
I'll be so persistent.
You'll stay -
I know we'll find a way.

I'm never gonna stop believing.
I know that this was meant to be
You'll stay with me.

Look at me. We are happy. We have everything.
Look at me and say it isn't so.
I'm the same. I'm not giving up so easily.
Look at me and say that you won't go.

Don't go.
Don't go.
Track Name: The Sound
Oh, crawl out of your hole and find your soul.
Oh, get out of your hell and find yourself.
And then you see it:
A glowing shape is slowly rising
Out of the world and into the sun.
You'll never cry again.

The sun will strike the horizon, and there's a humming all around
Where everything flows with the sound.
The sea and earth are colliding. Come let me show you what I've found
Where everything flows with the sound.

Oh, everyone is up against the wall.
Oh, saving one is gonna save us all. You'll save the whole world.
And when you know it,
You catch the wave. You break right open
Over the air and into the world
And now you're going home.

The sun will strike the horizon, and every shadow's gonna drown,
Where everything flows with the sound.
The sun is endlessly rising. Come let me show you what I've found
Where everything flows with the sound.

Your suicide is gonna end.
Your suicide will find a friend.
Rise out of your suicide.
Oh, is it all you can do?

The sun is silently blazing, and there's a humming all around,
Where everything flows with the sound.
It's never looked so amazing. Come let me show you what I've found
Where everything flows with the sound.

The sun will rise in the morning, and every shadow's gonna drown,
Where everything flows with the sound.
It shows you what you were born in. Come let me show you what I've found
Where everything flows with the sound.

The sun comes out the shadow, and there's a humming all around,
Where everything flows with the sound.
The sun will show you what matters. Come let me show you what I've found
Where everything flows with the sound.
Track Name: Take Me to Somewhere
She came on like she walked out of a movie.
Her smile brought the springtime in my eyes.
An image from a fantasy, a moment from a dream.
She turned to me to my surprise.

She said, come on, take me away.
Come on, show me your way of living.
Come and show me your life and your heart.
Take me somewhere that's new.
Let me in 'cause I want to know you.
Anywhere is better than here.

I spent the summer in a land of make-believe.
It was so easy, like they say it's supposed to be
Until the day she set me free.
It was so dazzling I couldn't really see.
I wasn't sure just who was her and who was me.
She smiled and I felt it.
She laughed and I melted.
I closed my eyes and she was gone.

Oh, take me to somewhere.
Oh, take me away.
Oh, take me to someplace I don't know
'Cause anywhere is better than here.

Now it's been winter since I don't remember when.
I wouldn't be surprised if winter never ends.
I guess I really need a friend.
I know you don't know me.
I hope you can show me.
Oh can you bring me back to life?

Oh, take me to somewhere.
Oh, take me away.
Oh, take me to someplace I don't know
'Cause anywhere is better than here.
Anywhere is better than here.
