Track Name: Explode
Your defibrillator kisses bring me back to life
your light house eyes they throw a rainbow on the darkest skies
in our bed we dream together
if I loved you more I would explode.
PS it's not good for my health.
Track Name: We believe
This is a world of complications
this is a world where truth takes flight
this is a world where loveless mad men
Don't know wrong from right

This is a time when hope is harder
this is a time when sense can hide
this is a time when we are tested
standing side by side
Track Name: Let happiness rain
Let happiness rain
Let happiness reign
