Track Name: Candy On Sunday (ft. Johnny Blazes)
I don’t know catch a plane on a Monday
Slippin’ and slidin’ from candy on Sunday
I can’t tell what the dial on the clock says
You got to find it yourself
Or just forget about it

It’s a nature machine
Coming fast, coming clean
It’s a natural machine

The things they say, they got a lot to learn
Open the door we got money to burn
All those birds sitting out on the wire
Them there kids getting higher and higher

1 2 3 simple like Michael said it
Now you’re back on the scene
Don’t even gotta dread it
How much further we go when we’re back to one
Someone’s taking your place y’all
Track Name: Dmitri's First Flight pt. 1 (ft. Lainey Schooltree)
I see two suns rising again
I see stars blazing in the sky
I feel the earth leaving my feet
I feel the future world; a sign
I see the shining god machines
I see heavens unfold before me
I own the road of space and time
I am the light and I am free

It’s coming — I’m ready — I feel it

I fly the shining god machines
A trail of endless solar fire
I see the cities in the sky
A million minds in fields of time
My journey has only begun
I fly into the sea of suns
Out on the road of space and time
I am the light and I am one

I own the road of space and time.
I am the light and I am free

Your star is shining; through all of space and time
Your star is rising; eternally shine on
Track Name: Interstellar Drifting (ft. Joel Simches)
As the stars fade from my window
The empty spaces fill my senses; silence
Solitude is my final solace

Through the void I’m ever floating; drifting

Stars fade; silence

Empty spaces; drifting
