Track Name: Yellow Line
Yellow Line
Written by Jeremy Betterley

So as we'd walked that yellow line
You'd held my hand, walked by my side
And though we knew there'd come a time
when we wouldn't have to think about each other anymore

I could never forget you
Like forgetting myself
Forgetting my ways
I could never forget you
How could I?
How could I?

And as we'd slept by mountain streams
our riparian homes never seemed so sweet
And though we knew that where it led
would deposit us apart in some new watershed

I could never forget you
Like forgetting myself
Forgetting my ways
I could never forget you
How could I?
How could I?
Track Name: In a Few Years
In a Few Years
Written by Jeremy Betterley

Will you share this umbrella
As we watch leaves dance in this
Rain thats falling as I'm still falling darling
Won't you give this thing a chance?

We will say forget the system, baby
Cause it don't know what's good for us
Old printed fliers are our reminders as we
Give this old thing a chance?

And they say youth have much to learn
We haven't forgotten it ourselves
And I can't say how I'll look back on this moment
But let's compare notes in a few years

Will you share this one way ticket with me
As they call all aboard this
train that's rolling as we watch the world roll by
Won't you give this thing a chance?

We will say, forget the money grabbers
as they take all of our spare
change comes slowly as we watch the world roll by
Won't you give this thing a chance?

And they say youth have much to learn
We haven't forgotten it ourselves
And I can't say how I'll look back on this moment
But let's compare notes in a few years
But let's compare notes in a few years
But let's compare notes in a few years
Track Name: Global Laboratory
Global Laboratory
Written by Jeremy Betterley

sometimes I think about impossibilities
and sometimes I think about what they mean for you and me
Because we're powerless deviants guilty of free speech
And I can't talk louder than the Heartland Institute and the fools they put on tv

sell out your opinions, it's what you've always done
It's not your fault, afterall you're just as
Powerless as me
Powerful as me

Obedience afterall is what it takes to succeed
Make the grade and know your palce before its taken by a machine
Because we're components on assembly lines, with maximized efficiency
Free will is an afterthought in this
New society


The system rewards those who question it the least
While we keep our heads in goings on our reward is sanity
But we cover the earth in pesticides and we plant genetic modified seeds
I'm feeling more like a test subject in this
Global laboratory
