Track Name: The Alternative Fact
I know you're out there
I know what you will do
Leave the conclusion soon

Memories fadin'
Going from dawn to gloom
Try to complete this clue

Why would it be that way
Not caring for me they say

I know you're out there
I know what you could do
Don't let it faint for sure

The weather is changing
And time to become so pure
Don't let them stop this cure

So why would you turn your back then
To say that it doesn't matter again
I'm not so sure

Those days will go by
Like tears in the sky
Flyin' over from another single try

Those days will go by
And the only thing that stays
Is the logic of
Alternative fact

I know you're somewhere
I know what you should do
Tryin' to be so true

The place to be special
Not being irrational
How could you let it happen again
(To say that it could last forever)

Well what have you done to turn away
To say that it comes back every day
I'm not quite sure

Those days will go by
Like tears in the sky
Flyin' over from another single try

Those days will go by
And the only thing that stays
Is the vision of a symptom called
Alternative fact

When the time comes for compassion
This situation will no longer return

The fragment of words with no alternative (fact)
The answers of truth with pure understanding

I know you're out there
So don't let this moment fade away today (for sure)

Don't let it fade away 'til tomorrow
Don't let the purpose play the game with sorrow
Alternative fact is overrated
Too much elated
That pass me by
Track Name: Invisible
Invisible (to me)
I think I gotta lose my mind again
Invisible (for me)
To say that something wasn't right my friend
Invisible (to be)
Livin' life as if you just don't care
Invisible to me
Believin' things around are just the same...

Invisible (to me)
The situation of a love affair
Invisible (for me)
Some kind of billionaire that doesn't share
Invisible (to see)
Forty minutes of a movie stare
Incredible to me
Sayin' the things around are just the same for you
Track Name: Here for You II
Here for you I was hopin' to be
Wond'ring when will time come back again

Here for you I could be there to see
Playin' games to find the biggest tree

Here for you things are not what they seem
Was it real or just another dream

Here for you to be on your side
Let it go or let it stay for while
