Track Name: Autumn Song
Summer's gone & autumn's here
Leaves turn colors & then they fall
Into the soil they will disappear
Nothing lasts after all
Well, it does
It just changes

All the voices of the multitudes
Claiming that they know the truth
Tints & shades & various hues
So I choose to stay aloof
Who knows my way
Anyway

When the winter's gone & the spring returns
Life will rise up from what's died
If there's one lesson I have learned
It's that they are on your side
Who let you grow
As best you know
Track Name: Rain for Days
The rain's unceasing rhythm
Upon my window
Forms a puddle in my mind
And in my loneliness
The puddle becomes a sea
As I slip below the brine

The redwoods weep for mortal souls
Lost for reasons such as these
Memories stuck to wet concrete
Names blowing in the breeze

And as the puddle's depth increases
The clouds pour without rest
I just can't help but wonder
Shall I be the next?
