Beneath 04:18
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

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

Fool 04:37
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

Gone 04:26
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

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

Leave It Up 04:17
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

Moonfade 04:22
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
