The Lasts 05:40
The Lasts What's it like in summer When the kids remember What it's like to be carefree With nothing hanging over me The last day of the summer The sun would shine, but dimmer Wish I knew the day before I would have caught a little more We never know the last time That might be the one chance that I had To make you smile Before you stepped into the wild Before I read your story I’d pick you up and we'd go say goodnight to everything Be thankful for the joy they bring Then one night you’re too old Moving on as we all should Wish I knew the night before I would've held a little more And when the rain does fall Why not say fuck it all And go outside Feel the rain on skin Let the moment in And soak up life Right before your eyes Do you see the signs? Now off to sleep The first time I saw it It pulled me in with wonder All the people on the sleeve Crying, "wont you look at me" The needle danced it's magic Injecting me with life blood Took me to very core Found what I was waiting for © ANTON EVANS 2017

Mysteries 06:28
Mysteries There's a mystery tonight From the outside looking in It's me and you In the history of flight No one's crashed and burned as hard as you You solve mysteries in me Words I can’t speak When you’re in my head You’re all I feel Wisdom waterfalls Flood this heatwave Whispers on your breath Words just too real Start your history tonight Knowing all that you know now Who are you? Past the end we’re alright Crash and burn's just trash and learn It's me and you Saints that always love you Stoic sends us true words Ancient wisdom marries Words we know to be real Once the world was flat Enter the garden of earthly delights Kiss the ions just right Look into the face of god I see you © ANTON EVANS 2017

A Haunting 05:53
A Haunting This day in Walmart will prove to be One that will stick around He kneels beside the cardboard bailer He screams but makes no sound I’ve got the blood of six No matter how much I wash it always sticks I still see your face Silent mourning Its over and then I held the handle that drove the car The tracks lead to the black hole The impact travels up your arm It shoots into your soul I’ve seen the eyes of six They're the doorways to the shore of the River Styx Then something snaps Umbilical wraps Hell falls into place My mind is made up of dying faces I spilled the blood of 6 No matter how much I wash it always sticks © ANTON EVANS 2017

Sit Back 05:48
Sit Back I saw fifty seven swans Astonished silver on all but one Though one of them is gone The lonely lover carries on We’re all getting cooked on the inside So, sit back and enjoy the ride No matter what you say No matter what you do Games are always being played And its never up to you A father tells his son We need the weaponry, we need the guns They’re not the same as us Their saviour's different, he speaks in tongues Wisdom from the son I’m at peace with peace and at war with war Show me any time Where the darkest energies has helped us all We're all getting fried on the outside So, sit back and enjoy the ride What if what you say What if what you do Takes away a little pain Makes a better you I got caned by nuns in grade school Her hand was huge next to mine All eyes fixed in fear on my face I pulled my hand away in time And the whip came down a second time And in her eyes I see For this 5-year-old the worst was yet to come Its 1982 And all the gurus have missed the cue Now its everywhere No one saw it Or even dared What if miracles Sing like music from our mouths Like when I first saw you You asked the question I found the truth We’re all getting baked on the topside So, sit back and enjoy the ride © ANTON EVANS 2017

Homecoming 04:01
Homecoming This time it's all it should be All roads give us the key The next path takes a new day The unknown not so strange This is who we are We just have to believe Hold on with my love Fate’s destiny We shine when were alone 2 birds killing 1 stone Take me to Stephen’s Gulch at noon These things prove to be true © ANTON EVANS 2017

Undo 07:40
Undo I’m looking forward to never seeing you again I’m looking forward to never hearing your bullshit No more insanity spitting venom from your breath I'll cut the hatred stupidity from my wealth No more my guts in a knot No more adrenaline shot Feel the hate you’re amassing I’m so ready for what’s in store I wish that I could undo all the damage that you've done For everything you’ve put me through I wish you all that’s gonna come The pastor of Muppets Is the master of puppets Divide and conquer is the path to power on this day How can they make such a bad choice given all they know? This ego maniac will fuck you for a drop of oil No more poisoning tar sands No more right-wing hand stands No more out of the UN You're resting on laurels of who came before I wish that I could undo all the damage that you've done If you could see your IQ you'd say Someone stupid this way comes I wish that I could undo All the pain and all it does For everything you’ve put me through I wish you all that’s gonna come Thrill me Stick the needle in Junkie Shoots adrenaline Your little fingers grab the quicksand of ignorance Too small to hold yourself up against common sense You're giving power to people and ideas you fear Outstanding backfire from your karma is all you'll hear You’re like a stunning concussion That lasts forever until Suicide by Russia The fog lifts in colour and brings you to tears © ANTON EVANS 2017

Outliers 11:07
Outliers I saw some silver in your hair You turned around and looked right through me You’ll be so beautiful when we’re old This flickering moonlight scoffs at plans Takes its time among the sands Soaked up tears and platelets of the ones that cared What does the outlier see? Something to shake off all your fears Like light in your head room Someone who knows why you cry tears That light up your dark truth The mind's eye sees and plans Eloquent oratory sways the sands Swirling dervishes stop on 2 pins of light Such little interest paid the truth Pay the viper Feed their youth Hear them crying that you just don’t care What does the outlier see? What does the outlier hear? What does the outlier feel? Something to shake off all your fears Like light in your head room Someone who knows why you cry tears That light up your dark truth Sometimes the actors go too far And ruin the picture Some say it's holding in the stars A drop in the fissure Something's moving, something's dark We know and live that we stop and start Sing to whispered lying Show that we do care About this freedom under rule Measure their wisdom Know the fool Truth is golden leaves falling to the ground I saw some silver in your hair You turned around and looked right through me And in the darkness shone and knew me I'll meet you at Steve’s on the 10th You’ll be so beautiful when were old © ANTON EVANS 2017

The Firsts 04:16
The Firsts First is always best Until it turns out for the worst Like being first in line For that coaster that flies off the rails First light of the sun Spears through the night and the darkness Changes what we see Shows us everything that just might be When your stars fall from the sky Like the air you breathe I’ll always be there Let’s haunt this place a little while In the air they breathe We’ll always be there You say I don’t know The person that you have become But what you can’t see I’ve seen everything that you can be First time that I knew You held his head in your strong hands Looked into his eyes Let him know it's gonna be alright Had this crazy dream My head had its own interface Plugged into the sky I heard angels sing as they flew by Plugged into the ground Felt everything I could touch First in this whole scene You were with me as we shared the dream © ANTON EVANS 2017
