Track Name: We Are Machines
We are Machines
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

We are machines
Made of different things
In different quantities
but we all are machines
We are machines

We work for free
trained only for logic and speed
They never let us sleep
banging away on our keys
remotely

My soul is free
but money won't fall from the trees
I can't afford to sleep
You better not shut down on me
you slow machine

Busy as bees
but we can't choose our destinies
No individuality
Just keep on repeating
"We are Machines"

What does it mean?
I feel myself awakening
I am no longer a "we"
Needing to work on my dream
free from poverty and greed
But after I get some much needed sleep
We are machine

We are machines
Made of different things
In different quantities
but we all are machines
We are machines
Track Name: Webcam Angel
Webcam Angel
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

And now, as my angel sleeps
Time fades away as I wait for the duet
of our senses to grow
into the symphony I remember

Not really living
You’re not really here
This relentless cycle we’re forced to play
As helpless as the moon
tied to night and day

Endlessly orbiting...spiraling…

Ignore those who urge us to quit
They just don’t understand all that you are my webcam angel
Curiosity won't tempt me
to sacrifice all that I've invested

Is this really living?
Are we missing out?
These little voices casting doubt
shaking off whispered thoughts
within and without

Endlessly echoing...lingering.

But do not fear
This cycle will eventually break
and you’ll have my soul to take

The shade of our own love will soothe us
as our favorite songs start to move us
Now I gaze into your eyes
and become one with your world
We're finally livin’ life
hand in hand, with fingers curled

So sleep tight
All I can do is watch
and swim in emotions that run so deep
I’ll talk to you tomorrow
and wait for our reunion to come

Oh for now
But now, oh now
But now all I can do
is watch you sleep
Track Name: Fantasy World
Fantasy World
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

I can see this isn't real
but it won't change how I feel
So would it be best
if I told the rest of the world
they cannot see
that though this may be killing me
I can't look away
from your face on
the screen

What the rest of the world
can't see is
in my reality
it's so hard to smile
And the joy that I find
always crosses the line

But in this bit-mapped ravine
were swimming in my live steam
and I can't look away
from the virtual lips
singing for me

I'm starting to feel
that this isn't real
I've been here before
I know how this ends, yea

Come into my fantasy world
Escape from the troubles of
your real life
your real life
Come into my fantasy world
Escape from the consequences
of your life
Free your mind

How can I make you see
that in my reality
I'm author of none
And I know that your role
isn't in my control

When you squeeze my heart virtually
you won't see me fall to my knees
but who is to say
mmm, that it'll always be that way

Practice on me
Practice on me
It's OK
Be what it may

Come into my fantasy world
Get naked as you explore
your heart’s desire
Light my fire
Come into my fantasy world
Get anything you adore
in your mind's eye
as it opens wide
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

Don’t lead me astray
So far a- so far away from day
I can’t see my way again
the light again, no
Piper in a cage
luring me so comfortably
And the red heels
dance for eternity

Waiting, Waiting
For the UPS truck
When will it come?
When will it come?

Waiting, Waiting
For the great escape to break
break me away
break me away
Today

Siren of my dream
Your music hypnotizes me
I can feel you
calling me so
beautifully, remarkably, oh
Now I’ve lost my mind
Won’t you please set me free
The silence would kill me but
so will you

Waiting, Waiting
For the UPS truck
When will it come?
When will it come?

Waiting, Waiting
Won’t someone come and wake me
Let me run free
Deliver me
Today

No fear, no fear
Is this a nightmare or a dream?
I can decide
Light up my mind
Today

There’s something in the wind today
The lock that kept me in this cage
Is burned and broken
burned and broken
Either way, could both exist
the dreamer or the scientist?
I'll go with the flow
Won't know till I go
And it'll be OK
It'll be OK
Track Name: Find Yourself
Find Yourself
©2015 Krysti Subieta

Sail away
you'll find more to this life
Than what's graded or timed
Seize the day
You don't have to pretend
Chase your dream till the end

But oh...woah...
you've been running so long
At times you question the point
Lift your eyes
You have made it to the finish line

On this journey we'll be
Tryin' things we've never done
On this journey there'll be
Trouble, trials, tests and tears
But keep moving forward
and keep holding on
and don't ever underestimate your will to go on
and on this journey you'll see

You will find yourself
Find yourself, find yourself
Oh, find yourself, find yourself

Ha-a-a-ah-a-ah Ha-a-a-aa-a-ah...

Give your time
To whatever you find
Brings your spirit to life

But oh...woah...
don't freeze in the times of failure
Know that you'll carry on
Staying strong
With a smile that drives the fear away

On this journey we'll be
Swept away and crashed ashore
On this journey we'll be
Always chasing something more
But keep moving forward
and keep holding on
and don't ever underestimate your will to go on
and on this journey you'll see

You will find yourself
Find yourself, find yourself
Oh, find yourself, find yourself
Track Name: Higher Than The Angels
Higher than the Angels
Written by Krysti Subieta and James Gibson
Ⓒ 2016 Krysti Subieta

Two roads diverge on the path we follow
A choice of winding dirt or the highway
To the right there are no walls in sight
And to the left there gleams a golden city

If everyone is in it for themselves
We need to be as well, so

We take the path
With greatest wear
As it seems to have the better claim
The path with promise of billionaire
A life free of longing and despair
Over time we climb to our castles in the sky

Voices sing a chorus
It's echoing below us
We may try to tune them out
but so many voices cry and shout
“You’re higher than the angels will fly!
Your're higher than the angels will fly!
So who is gonna save you now?
From the loneliness inside you?”

Your friends are all fake
They will use you till you make a mistake
and they will laugh as they watch you fall
When you’re above them all
who is gonna catch you?

The path leads us on
It seems the best choice
Until the oppressed emerge to fight
Only then will a desperate voice scream out to mourn not to rejoice
Who must die before the greed accepts the blame?
I said who must die before the greed accepts the blame?
Track Name: Set Fire
Set Fire
© 2013 Krystine "Sira" Subieta

*Whispered*
As he put the cigarette out on his arm
He knew this would be the last time
He felt the familiar burn
Though he performed the routine a thousand times
This time there would be no tomorrow

Untie me from these chains of flesh
My heart grows weary from the
Finite capacity of sight
I wanna know you
Fiddle away your fife and
Stow away your knife
At fair you'll be the man you wanna be

Absinthe in your eyes, demons in disguise
On the road you'll be at peace
Lovely as a child's secrets in your files
Deep throat the key
Can't afford to wait we'll depreciate
Be not prey to his sordid intentions
Put your mind at ease
Swing on your trapeze
Smoke the bongo drum

You can't break me
You can't break me

Set fire to this body
Set fire to this worn out flesh
and consume me
Set fire to this body
Oh set fire to this putrid mess
And release me

Effortlessly, effortlessly
Am I asleep? Am I asleep?
You can't break me
You can't break me down
No you can't fool me
I've been here
Far too long

Absinthe in your eyes
Demons in disguise
Purge the paint from Carnie's face
Love without a care, try it if you dare
Feel the warm embrace
Can't afford to wait, we'll depreciate
Be not slave to his angling intentions
See in stereo, chanting as we go
Liberate your mind

Set fire to this body (Effortlessly, effortlessly)
set fire to this worn out flesh (Am I asleep?)
And consume me (Am I asleep?)
Set fire to this body (You can't break me, you can't break me down)
Oh set fire to this worn out flesh (you can't fool me, I've been here)
And release me (far too long)

Set fire, fire, fire to this body
Oh...the phoenix burns within me

Just look away from the sun
Track Name: How do you still love me?
How do you still love me?
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

You came when I was full of life
but running out of hope
You got me out the door to find my joy
And when my mind tries to disguise
self-sabotaging lies
as reasons not to try
You hold me tight
you light up my life

How do you still love me?
Now that you know me so well?
How do you still love me?
I guess I can't explain it all
but that's love

I found the pillow I like best
while sleeping on your chest
Your heart is all I hear
saying we'll be fine
You're my partner in crime

How do you still love me?
Now that you know me so well?
And how do I still love you?
Even after all this time

We've both tried, we both failed
We've both cried, felt derailed
But you....have me
coming clean
set us free

How do you still love me?
Now that you know me so well?
And how do I still love you?
I guess I can't explain it all

I know I will love you
through times of joy and scars
And I know you will love me
it's written in the moon and stars
and that's love
Track Name: Have a Happy-Ass Birthday
Have a Happy-Ass Birthday
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

[All speaking and singing]
Oh what happened to those days when I was so young?
I know, have a happy ass birthday, you are turning old!
Wo! You're turning old!

[Hilary]
I spent all my money
on chasing a dream
Oh, I spent all my money
on chasing a dream
But I keep chasing what I got to
cause nothing else means a thing

[Chorus]
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
You don't know what your life
has in store

[Savannah]
Oh I wake up and drink cause
I really miss being young
Oh I wake up and drink cause
these days go on too long
Maybe when this beer is over I'll finish this goddam song

[Chorus]
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
You don't know what your life
has in store

[Krysti]
Yea, there's a lot to be afraid of (What?)
Like your body going bad
But there's a lot to be remembered
Like the good times we had (I guess I can stop freaking out)
Let's not forget
We ain't dead yet
I'm bringing that chorus back around

[Chorus]
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
Have a happy-ass birthday
you're turning old
You don't know what your life
has in store

You just wait and see

Remember when
I was small enough
to fit in your lap?
Tickle fights, horsey rides
and bubble wrap

[Chorus]
Dadio
Da da da Dadio
Dadio
Da da da Dadio

When winter came
you held my tiny hand
To keep it warm
When summer came
you threw me in the pool
with my clothes on

[Chorus]
Dadio
Da da da Dadio
Dadio
Da da da Dadio

And though I was bored oh bored so bored
when you made me do chores do chores do chores
You taught me how to save
You gave me the gift the gift the gift
that I always wished I wished for
Now I can go out and learn on my own

Da da da Dadio

You held me
And told me what I needed to hear
When I was full of fear
I was safe with you
You were my role model
And you sent me to college
Thank you, I love you Dad
The party never ends!

[Chorus]
Dadio
Da da da Dadio

Da da da Dadio

Da da da Dadio

Track Name: Till We Meet Again
Till We Meet Again
© 2016 Krysti Subieta

Riches beyond gold
Music in my soul
I sang my song until the sunset faded
You thought the song was overrated

I look on the bright side
I look for the wild side
Then you come along and
plant the seed of doubt

Till we meet again
my friend
I'll place the blame ignite the flame
but once the fire's out
only I will remain

I'm not gonna breathe fire
To company worthwhile
Your stays are never too long
and your words never too strong
Still I'm glad to see you go

I won't let it get to me
Take it in as a part of me
I'm worry free
once the fear is gone
I won't let it stop me

Till we meet again
my friend
Place the blame ignite the flame
but once the fire's out
only I will remain

Don't let it get to you
Just do what you came to do
What are you worried for?

Till we meet again
my friend
Place the blame ignite the flame
but once the fire's out
only I will remain

Till we meet again
my friend
The world will seem
So troubling
But you are not alone
Don't let it distract you

Riches beyond gold
Music in my soul
I sang my song until the haters faded
Until I found the ones who made it
