Track Name: Save Me Spiderman
At the top of the parking lot
I'm just trying to find my parking spot
When something hits me in the back of the head
And I fall to the ground, Don't worry I'm not dead
A man points his gun at me
And says give me all your money
So I pulled out my wallet
And said do you take debit or credit
And he was very angry now
And he punched me right in the brow
And he picked me up with both his hands
And he threw me off the building

This is the part of the story
Where everything is going to get gory
And as I fall from the sky I cry
Screaming, I don't want to die
And just when my hope was leaving me
Who do you think that I would see?
No one other than
Spiderman

So Save Me Spiderman
I'm falling fast so please take my hand
I'd pray to God to save me
But praying to God is like praying to Spiderman
(Repeat)

Maybe there was no gun man
Maybe I wasn't pushed
Maybe I was diving
Falling head first
Maybe I was just testing
What I was taught as a kid
That you can never be saved
Unless you fall


So Save Me Spiderman
I'm falling fast so please take my hand
I'd pray to God to save me
But praying to God is like praying to Spiderman


So Save Us Spiderman
We're falling fast so please take our hands
We'd pray to God to save us
But praying to God is like praying to Spiderman
Track Name: The Book We Didn't Write
In a book we didn't write
In a page I didn't print
You were a damsel in distress
And I was savior to be sent
You we're tied up the tracks
And I had the wind against my back
I was riding on a white horse
You we're tied up to the dirt floor

So i filled
Bubblegum with Helium
We floated in the sky
And never stopped to ask the questions
Why are you always here when trouble is so near?
And if a rescue is what you call this
Then let's start it off right with a kiss
I mean anything can happen
Anything can happen tonight

On the back of the Black Pearl
Sat my beautiful girl
And Captain Jack
Tied her hands behind her back
And said "Today is your last day
Because you're going to walk the plank"
But from underneath the ship
I pulled out my Bubblicious

And I filled
Bubblegum with Helium
We floated in the sky
And never stopped to ask the questions
Why aren't they firing their guns?
Or their Ginormous cannons?
And as the sunset started to peak
You leaned over and kissed my cheek
I mean anything can happen
Anything can happen tonight

When i found out about the pen and the page
And that the whole world was my stage
I stayed up all night and wrote for days
To know that I can create
And not just participate
Instead of reading stories of the shelf
I'll write a few for myself
So scribble scribble dot dot then a line
If you want a story well here's mine

I filled
Bubblegum with Helium
We floated in the sky
And never stopped to ask the questions
Why is my favorite color blue?
And why can't I keep my eyes off you?
And all of this
Started with a kiss
Then anything can happen
Anything can happen (X4)
Anything can happen tonight
Track Name: Lite Brite
Dreams never die
At least that's what we believe when we were five
When the worst things lived underneath our bed
Things that we created in our heads
When everything that we dreamed
Came to life the next day it seemed
When every picture that we drew
Came True

So let's turn on the Lite Brites
And paint the dark sky tonight
Drawing dreams that disappear

So let's turn on the Lite Brites
And paint the dark sky tonight
Drawing dreams that are still here

We'd never listen to our parents
Climbing up to the top of the fence
We'd jump into a pile of dirt
And get mud all over our shirts
When we were always Cops and Robbers
And Pirates and Ninjas and Warriors and Dragons
When all we had was our imagination
And no one to tell us no

So let's turn on the Lite Brites
And paint the dark sky tonight
Drawing dreams that disappear

So let's turn on the Lite Brites
And paint the dark sky tonight
Drawing dreams that are still here
Inside of us

The older we get
We start to forget
The dreams we had when we were young
The song inside our heart we sung

The older we get
We start to forget
The dreams we had when we were young

The older we get
We start to forget

The older we get

So let's turn on the Lite Brites
And paint the dark sky tonight
Drawing dreams that disappear

So let's turn off the Lite Brites
Because we finally realized
We were in color this whole time
