Track Name: Me and My Robot Arm
My Robot Arm is my very best friend
He treats me great and he makes sure that I have the things I need
My Robot Arm is so kind to mom and dad and everyone
It's just me and my Robot Arm

Oh Robot Arm, I love you so
Your jokes are great and you know just how to cheer me up when I'm down
Hey Robot Arm, I like your cold iron shell when we're snuggling
You see me with my Robot Arm

Sometimes we go down to the park and play ping-pong
Sometimes we stay up playing video games all night long
Sometimes we go hit the pond and catch some frogs
But never go on airplanes because of the weight charge

My Robot Arm is my very best friend
Although he's heavy and I must admit sometimes we don't get along
My Robot Arm is really cool I'm glad you hang around
I love you, Robot Arm!
Track Name: Mountain Man
Now I'm no mountain of a man, but I will try
I call out your speck, but not the beam in my own eye
And it goes just to show how much I've left to learn
And I'll learn, yes I'll learn

Nothing to show, 'cause my best works are filthy rags
One place to go when I give up, wave the white flag,
And I know that you'll be there, for me to fall back on
Till the day I'm gone

Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,
Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,


Sometimes I wish that I could tell what's up ahead
But you give me comfort for when I'm to rest my head
And I know when I'm feeling down, you'll know just how I'll be
And you'll carry me

Time is short, I'm breaking through now
Gotta go proclaim it out loud
Raise me up to seat in the clouds

Now I'm no mountain of a man, but I will try
I call out your speck, but not the beam in my own eye


Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,
Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,

Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,
Da, da-da, da-da, Da, da-da, da-da,
Track Name: Reply (2013)
I've got a phone and my own computer
I'm available alll the time
I've been blowing up your inbox
Wish you were blowing up mine
Just type the words and hit reply (Please)
It's just annoying to open up the app
And I don't see the big red one

I've been calling off the hook
And I know you have caller I.D.
I've left a million-billion messages
So why won't you answer me?
Just grab the phone, I'm on speed dial (Please)
It's just ridiculous when I go to check my recent calls
And you're not on the list

I bought you those walkie-talkies
I sent tossed you a paper plane
I sent you a ton of emails,
We've even tried tin-cans-and-strings
Just find some way, get back to me (Please)

All you've gotta do is do something; go ahead and hit reply
Just go ahead and hit reply
Just go ahead and hit reply
Just go ahead and hit reply
Track Name: Shine
Sometimes the lights go off and you'd think you're blind
You still forget that not all songs do rhyme
Yet you still continue, and though you never win you
Always seem like you're losing your mind

So shine on
Shine on, mhm

Times cutting short and you can't make a deal (You've got a story to tell)
You wait it out and see what life reveals (We don't know what will entail)
And though things don't ever differ
You take the path you least prefer and you just shine on

So shine on
You just keep shinin' on
(Take it away, boys!)

So shine on
Shine on

So shine on, Just shine on
Shine on, Just shine on
Shine on, yeah, ooh
You just keep on shinin' on, and on, and on
