Track Name: Beneath
Beneath
Music & Lyrics by Jac Mestel

Foggy the world does look
When hiding in the sheets
You got a world outside
And I hide underneath

You gotta run in time
To find out what you need
You got a treasure map?
I’m buried far beneath

Buried far beneath
Buried far beneath
Buried far beneath

Beneath, beneath, beneath yeah
Beneath, beneath, yeah
Beneath, beneath, beneath yeah
Beneath, beneath, yeah

Pulsing of the Earth
Bursting with the spring
Surely as the winter dies
Summer solstice sings

Pulsing of the Earth
Bursting with the Spring
Surely as the winter dies
Summer solstice sings

Silently stuck am I
Just waiting with the seed
Come down and drench my soul
With knowledge and relief

Making it up until
It turns into belief
Only one way to go
When buried far beneath

Buried far beneath
Buried far beneath
Buried far beneath

Beneath, beneath, beneath yeah
Beneath, beneath, yeah
Beneath, beneath, beneath yeah
Beneath, beneath, yeah

Pulsing of the Earth
Bursting with the spring
Surely as the winter dies
Summer solstice sings

Pulsing of the Earth
Bursting with the spring
Surely as the winter dies
Summer solstice sings
Track Name: Don't Turn Me On
Don't Turn Me On
Music & Lyrics by Jac Mestel

Oh little girl you got away from yourself
You were red as your lips tonight
Don’t tell me no cause you’ve awoken the beast
And it’s too late to change your mind

Don’t turn me
Don’t turn me on
Don’t turn me
Don’t turn me on
Cause you know what happens

Well I’m a thing that’s goin’ bump in the dark
When your eyes can’t adjust in the black after dusk
So hold me down I can’t escape from the sound
Of your lips when they pressed against mine

Don’t turn me
Don’t turn me on
Don’t turn me
Don’t turn me on
Cause you know what happens

You can tell me that it’s just too much to take
But you can’t tell me that my heart no longer breaks
Even winds and fires and oceans stay awake
And I refuse to leave your mind

Oh little girl you got away from yourself
You were red as your lips tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Track Name: Fool
Fool
Music and Lyrics by Jac Mestel

You don’t even touch me anymore
I feel rejected yeah I feel unsure
You can’t possibly get how I feel
You don’t see that I need time to heal from you

Try to keep my mind from thinking it
But there she is at the local market
Drawing her pictures and you barely mask it
I keep your pillow cause you still ask it of me

But it’s not fair, and it’s not right
That you still keep me locked to your shadow
Where no one else sees
All the marks that you left on me
Are fading away, but I’m still here
Trying to find something new
While I’m stuck here
Following you like a fool

I don’t mean to state the obvious
And I know you don’t see what all the fuss is
But when the options are torture or hell
I’ll take the beating knowing at least you are well

And yes I do have trouble letting go,
But now I’ve given up all my control
And how will I get out from under your rule
An iron thumb will never release a fool

But it’s not fair, and it’s not right
You get comfort in someone else’s arms
Then you come home to me
I get loneliness, I get nothing
But the fact that you’re alive
And I’m the selfish one?
No I am the fool

Blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Yeah, blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me.
Why don’t you blame it all, blame it all, blame it all on me

Let’s break the cycle, stop it in its tracks
I have no solution, you’ll never budge
I’ve got to find something new, get out of here
And stop shadowing you like a fool
Track Name: Gone
Gone
Music & lyrics by Jac Mestel

How much can we take?
How long ‘til we break?
How? How could I know
We’d have so little time
But so many minutes to grow?

Why don’t you do what you want with me?
Oh you think you can handle me?
Well, you best find yourself a new lover
Cause baby, you’re wrong
Baby you’re wrong

What more can we do?
Let time pass through?
And while your waiting find somebody else
Don’t latch on to me
Cause I want to be by myself

Oh, just take what you want from me
Oh, you think you’re in love with me
Well, put one foot in front of the other
And baby you’re gone
Baby you’re gone

For who do you stay?
I’m spent for the day
And I don’t remember how things got so far
I stopped listening
We just can’t defend who we are

You just had the last piece of me
So there’s no possibility
That we’ll find ourselves in each other
Baby we’re through
Baby we’re through
Track Name: Somebody Help Me Forget
Somebody Help Me Forget
Music & lyrics by Jac Mestel

I get the feeling you’ve been wasting my time,
But I can’t for the life of me stop
You’d be right if you said I was stupid
I’ll skirt that cause I hear it a lot

Can we help it if we’re desperate and lonely?
Everybody just wants to be loved
God, I’m praying hard that I’m not the only one left
Somebody help me forget

I get the feeling I have no time to lose,
But I can’t for the life of me start
You’d be right if I said I was crazy,
I’ll ignore it cause I might fit the part

Can we help it if we’re tired and jealous?
Everybody just wants someone close
God I’m praying hard that I’m not the only one left
Somebody help me forget

I get the feeling that it’s time to get up,
But I can’t for the life of me move
You’d be right if you said I was lazy
I’ll pretend that I’ve got nothing to prove

Can we help it if we’re dying of boredom?
Everybody just wants a cheap thrill
God I’m praying hard that I’m not the only one left
Somebody help me forget

I get the feeling you’ve been wasting my time,
But I can’t for the life of me stop
You’d be right if you said I was stupid,
I’ll skirt that cause I hear it a lot

Can we help it if we’re desperate and lonely
Everybody just wants to be loved
God I’m praying hard that I’m not the only one left
Somebody help me forget
Track Name: Leave It Up
Leave It Up
Music by Jac Mestel & Kevin Neely, Lyrics by Jac Mestel

Steer your boat
For the passengers bored of their country.
Hear them quote
Maudlin words they can find for themselves.

Check your coat
But make use of that baggage you carry.
Clear your throat
But of course, you’ve got nothing to say.

So, leave it up,
Just, leave it up,
Oh, leave it up to me.

Leave it up,
Just, leave it up
Leave it up to me.

Sip your wine
But make way for the movers and shakers.
Take your time
Well it’s not like we’re waiting for you.

You might find
You’ve been rolling around in the breakers.
Can’t you try
Climbing out to an infinite blue.

Or leave it up
Just, leave it up
Leave it up to me.

Take it on
Or your life may be lulling behind you
‘til you’re gone
And have nothing to show for it all.

Don’t leave it up,
don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up to me

Don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up
Don’t leave it up to me
Track Name: Moonfade
Moonfade
Music & lyrics by Jaclyn Mestel

Thought I felt you next to me
Getting lost in ecstasy
When we touched so tenderly
But what you get is what you see
What you see

Moon fading slow
You had to go

Where you face is light you bring
Touching down on everything
I make out the words you sing
But in the dark I’m hearing things

Moon waning high
You say goodbye

How you used to light my way
Helped me find the words to say
Hold me close ‘til break of day
Until our dreams must fade away
Fade away

Moon setting fast
Time make it last

I want to drown in your light
Falls far, shines bright
I want to drown in your light
Falls far, shines bright

I want to drown in your light
Falls far, shines bright
I want to drown in your light
Falls far, shines bright

Falls far, shines bright
False fire shines bright
Falls far, shines bright
False fire shines bright
