Track Name: Paradise Unknown (The Ballad of The Lone Wolf)
PARADISE UNKNOWN (The Ballad of The Lone Wolf)
(M. Baluyut, 2012)

Out in the wilderness I shall find my heart
And it’s calling me to make a brand new start

If I move out shall I go on and change my name
Don’t you forget me, I forgive you,
but things will never be the same

Keep me in mind

You’re the one who told me that nothing in this world would ever last
I can see your thoughts were moving fast

If you think that I’m in it just for the fortune and fame
Well, think again, you don’t know how it is, child,
and my passions shall always reign

Keep me in mind

I will find out one day
What came into play
Between you and I

But for now
Gotta move along
Gotta ditch this town
Track Name: Nearness of You
NEARNESS OF YOU
(M. Baluyut, 2008, 2012)

Love is okay, I knew it was true
The fondness and joy of being with you
The moment to seize, I’m begging you please
Put all of my meddling troubles to ease

The nearness of you
It’s nice and so true
With every moment I become
When it’s all said and done

I’m rambling along while singing this song
Oh, but I know, it won’t last for long
Becoming this thing, how long has it been?
Of knowing how long you’ve made me clean

The moment that I was with you
The feelings were so true
And everybody faded away
Oh why you didn’t stay

The moment that I was with you
The feelings were so true
And everybody faded and faded away

Oh, the nearness of you
It’s nice and so true
With every moment I became

And now it’s over
Track Name: Goodbye OK Fine
GOODBYE, OK FINE
(M. Baluyut, 2010)

Away you go and I’m on an all time low
And there’s no time to feel

You ran away and my heart has gone astray
And it’s so hard to deal

I threw it all away
I thought we were okay

It’s you, the one who got away and now you’re gone
Goodbye, that’s right, goodbye

I love you so and so far that’s all I know
And it’s a thought that I have to kill

I’m out of place and there is nothing left to say
Forever gone, unreal

Now that we’re done
I can’t see the sun

It’s you, the one who got away and now you’re gone
Goodbye, my love, goodbye

It’s not the same
You know your name

It’s you, you’re the one who got away forever gone
Goodbye, my love, goodbye

Goodbye, my love, goodbye
Track Name: Me & Mr. D
ME & MR. D
(M. Baluyut, 2009)

There he is watching over me
Just waiting slowly for my soul to flee
I feel the cold sting in his hands
It feels quite weird and I don’t understand

Hello there, tell me why you’re here?
I’m not quite ready and I’m full of fear
I don’t want to see what’s on the other side
I hope you’ll find some time to change your mind

I wish that I could tell them the things that are just happening inside my mind
But he wouldn’t let me he’s pulling me further to the other side

Hello there, oh don’t take me, please
You got my baby crying on her knees
I don’t want to see what’s on the other side
Stepping over feels just like a crime

The blackness of it all, the wonder of what’s next just seem to be sublime
He’s giving me a wink, sending me some signals I don’t want to file

Hello there, oh don’t take me, please
But if it’s time, then make me ready, please
I feel the cold sting in your hands
It feels quite weird and I don’t understand

Oh Death, won’t you take me, please
And if it’s time then get me out of here
Take my hand, you know I won’t fight
I’m turning liquid, and I could see the light
Track Name: A Slow Fall Out
A SLOW FALL OUT
(M. Baluyut, 2012)

I’m like a clock a-tickin’
And everyday’s another morning
The grass in the fields I watch ‘em grow
I don’t know what to call myself anymore

Dream a dream for another night
It’s been a while since I’ve lost a fight
Into the deepest depths we go
You and I, we’re on an all time low

And you wonder if you can
Fall in love with another plan
Well, I tell you, it’s alright
But for now, we don’t have to fight, do we?

Outside in the open find your heart
Someday you may tear yourself apart
But tonight we feel another glow
Teardrops falling like a snow

Pick out what is left inside your heart
Maybe we could make a brand new start
However high however low
In the end we will never know

And you wonder if you can
Kill our love for another plan
Well, I tell you, that’s alright
Nothing’s wrong nothing’s right

In your mind and in my soul
What we have has took its toll
But I guess we’re still alright
But for now, we don’t have to fight, do we?

I’m like a clock a-tickin’
And everyday’s another morning
The grass in the fields I watch ‘em grow
I don’t know what to call myself anymore
Track Name: The Stranger
THE STRANGER
(M. Baluyut, 2012-2013)

I.
There’s a Stranger walking to a nearby town and he’s up on his feet
Searching for the love that he used to have in an existence so bleak
He passes by, them people stare, he’s on his own
Yes, they see him but they don’t mind at all
As he is waiting for The Call

There’s a Stranger climbing on a desolate hill as he fills his empty heart
Lighting up a cigarette he takes it all in, and then he lets it all out
And there’s a longing deep inside him that shall never go away
There’s a stranger walking and he feels like falling
Wishing things, wishing everything would be okay

There’s a Stranger sitting in an open field as he questions everything
“Will I get wiser, as I get older? Will I ever find love again?”
He talks to God, he tests his faith, he’s all alone
And the snake is hissing from afar
The sun is setting and it’s getting dark

There’s a Stranger walking on the side of the road of an open highway
Buses and cars, rivers and trees, nature of every kind
And there’s a fire inside, a burning question
And it’s asking, “What does it take to be man?”
Will it ever make sense again?
There’s a Stranger walking and he feels the wind blowing
And the answer, and the answer is in his hands

II.
There’s a Stranger, fighting demons of the past and ghosts of doom
In the darkness wrestling gods of greed and pain and hurt and gloom

He says goodbye to the mistress and the mystics of the good times
That has kept him from the light
And he wonders what he’ll see as he comes out in the open

There’s a Stranger, killing beasts in the barren wilderness
He’s The Lone Wolf of the badlands and he cannot second guess

As he’s broken, comes an Angel in the night
Not to slay him, but to tell him, “it’s alright”.
And he rises, black and blue, inside he heals while words are spoken
Track Name: My Hummingbird
MY HUMMINGBIRD
(M. Baluyut, 2012)

(HUM)

Maybe someday we will understand
All of the reasons why I held your hand

And you’ll know
That I will miss you

One day there’s someone who’ll take my place
I’ll be your Star in the outer space

And I know, yes I know
That you won’t forget me

Try to move on, if you can
Even if you’d want to hold my hand

If I’d just know that I’d hate goodbyes
Deep inside, you’re my peace of mind

(HUM)

You will understand
Maybe I’d come back to hold your hand

But I’ll leave it now to chance
Oh I, you and I, I will miss you


Try to move on, if you can
Even if you’d want to hold my hand

If I’d just know that I’d hate goodbyes
Deep inside, you’re my peace of mind

(HUM)
Track Name: So For Now I Guess We'll See
SO FOR NOW I GUESS WE’LL SEE
(M. Baluyut, 2012)

Always searching for the truth, keep to try to understand
All the mess that’s in my head, always searching for a plan
So I could finally get to you, it’s a place I’d rather be
But still I haven’t got a clue, so for now I guess we’ll see

It’s a novel thing to be, just the way I think of you
You’ll be the one to set me free, you’re so clean, so fresh, so new
And if you’ll only read my mind, the way you move and shake my heart
But there’s no thing as you and me, so for now I guess we’ll see

And in the end of this solitary road
Shall I find you when it’s done? Will we ever be so bold?
And if we’d ever tell the truth that’s in the night
Will it ever sound so good? Will it ever shed some light?

Like the clouds up in the sky, our form of love just moves and fades
And as the seasons come and go, our life stories shall be made
And we’ll get older till we die, we’ll move along like the waves of the sea
But there’s no thing as you and me, so for now I guess we’ll see
Track Name: Conspiracy Theorist
CONSPIRACY THEORIST
(M. Baluyut, 2011)

Getting the facts alone in my room
Searching things at dim light
Putting the pieces into a zoom
Watch the skies at midnight

Everything’s hidden, I’m not surprised
Blame it on my evidence
Searching things that are from the Unseen
All of it is making sense

And the covers will be blown
No one will be innocent

Yes to believe in the Unknown
It’s the greatest thing that’s ever been

The world is my playground, I make the rules
Coming to an inference
What if the world is not what it seems – from aliens to presidents?

I’m not to blame for what I have learned
Getting all my facts straight
Miracles, terrorists, the End of the World
UFO’s and wars of hate

And in my mind I have learned
I’m not that innocent

Yes to believe in the Unknown
It’s the greatest thing that’s ever been

All the secrets of the world
Hidden at plain sight

Yes to believe in the Unknown
I subscribe to it day and night

Conspiracy theorist
Track Name: Summer Dirge
SUMMER DIRGE
(M. Baluyut, 2012)

Tired and restless
I find solace in your violent heart

I see the future fading
Everything that goes must fall apart

You and I will never realize the truth behind
of not knowing what to do in anything

And in time I’ll see you through behind
those curtains where you hide (I will know you)

But don’t you know that

You’re the only reason why I sing and smile?
I wonder if you remind yourself of who am I
I wish there was a way for you to sing along

Read me through my songs

I need you

Days go by and I get tongue-tied to even try
I’m looking at the mirror and I’m getting old

And you’re just there, existing
I wonder if you think of me right now?

And I will sing, anyway
until you find yourself a reason to stay

You are the crying heart on my easy chair

And in the end

I wonder how you’re doing now and where you are
I wish that there was something else for me to hide
But death is coming closer, and it’s, slithering

Please, come home right now

And I’ll sing with you
