Track Name: Luster
Luster
Words and music by Mark Bush

I’m caught in a land slide holding my head up just trying to survive
And you, you're stuck in your own mind, conquering paradise feeling so fine
I just wish that I knew why I can’t find the reasons I can’t see the signs
So I, yes I’m on my last leg pushing this mountain and falling behind

Don’t run away
I’m only having a bad day
There’s nothing you can do or say
To make this feeling go away

I’m skating on thin ice holding on by a small string losing my mind
For you its always so easy why are you teasing you do it all the time
And I, I don’t like the feeling not knowing what’s happening, feeling so blind
You, you’re always so jaded, your kindness is fading, I’m wasting my time

Don’t run away
I’m only having a bad day
There’s nothing you can do or say
To make this feeling go away

I hope you stick around
I never wanted to see you down
Don’t let it bring you down
Let it bring you down
Bring you down

Me, I’m sinking in quicksand stuck here with no plan, but I’m doing alright
Cause I realize it’s not bad no reason to feel sad, I got you on my side
So now I’m riding that landslide sliding on thin ice and feeling just fine
And you, you’re ok in my mind enjoying your own life, and losing your shine

Don’t run away
I’m only having a bad day
There’s nothing you can do or say
To make this feeling go away
Track Name: The Sound
The Sound
words and music by Mark Bush

Easy at it goes
That’s how you take it slow
But I’m not sure how she likes it
Tell me please girl do you know

I’d like to let it grow
And see just where this goes
I’m not sure I can stop it moving
I can’t control the flow

Waiting always makes it harder there’s just no time to let it get away
You can’t stop it now this thing has started accept it …it is here to stay

You know I’m sorry I can’t stop it now
The feeling has taken over my brain
I must keep going, no I can’t slow down
Can you help me find a way

In spite of everything I’ve tried
I can’t just let it lie
It’s been bottled up inside me
And I will not let it die

So the feeling takes control
I can feel it in my soul
This live is all around me I can’t
Seem to let it go

There is no way to describe what is happening to me the experience is all around
It moves in and out of me it is all I can hear it is the only sound

You know I’m sorry I can’t stop it now
The feeling has taken over my brain
I must keep going, no I can’t slow down
Can you help me find a way
