Lyrics

Laustin Texas

Written By: Lance Irven

Lost out in Texas, I can't be found.
Just walked past death and you calmed me down.
Rolling off the miles down Highway 83.
Just a million things to say, I just will be me.

There must be something there, oh can't you see.
This sea of meaningless, I will be free.
Time just lies motionless at the bottom of your sea.
I left this dusty ground just to walk alone.

I left this dusty ground just to walk alone.
You left me standing there, an unturned stone.
The tide of your ocean must fall sometime.
I hope your love don't fade away, as you've done to mine.

May the waves carry you home.
And may the white sand set you free.
Land of water, food on the tree.
Time just lies motionless at the bottom of your sea.

Inversion

Written By: Lance Irven

Inversion, in the babylon.
Inversion, in the babylon.

Skies all grey instead of blue.
What you, what you gonna do.
All day long, in the afternoon, yeah.
When the evenings through.

Inversion, in the babylon.
Inversion, in the babylon.

Inversion, in the babylon.
Inversion, in the babylon.
Babylon must fall.
Babylon must fall.
