Desert 03:57
Dressed inside & consequence Fatal truths & monuments Believers see in doubt Within and Without Ch: Sit & waste our time away Sit & waste our time here… Opaque veil on the day Nothing’s clear anyway Dirty ground is cold Blowin’ wind is growin’ old… Chorus Plaster signs of what we were Remnants of what we became Shadows of fragments left behind We give it all up in time… Chorus – Repeat x 2

Burned Down 04:17
Thinking bad of time away, Listen to the words and what they say Reeling in the moments, fleeting gap Taking time and going back… Brass back favor reveals the trace, Remote control guilt taking shape… Chorus And I feel like I’m burning down, Embers smolder on the ground, Light go down, day drops away, The veil of night takes its place… Peeling paint & memories Lost episodes & reveries Ceilings shadow, night’s silent dark When can salvation really start? Coffee fuel feeds the mind, Body’s burned down, one more time… Chorus And I feel like I’m burning down, Embers smolder on the ground, Light go down, day drops away, The veil of night takes its place…

Come, come back to me, I’ve been waiting for eternity (x2) Verse 1 Hold it to myself, thinking of the precious time and the future, the future holding you. Looking at myself, thinking of someone else, staring at a silhouette of you. There’s a thread of truth you see in all mythology not a sparkle or a glimmer. Chorus (x2) Verse 2 The shore is alone, as the wave has finally broke, there’s me, you and tomorrow. Caught up in-between, and it’s not just what it seems, the meeting and the allusive you. Looking at the lake, having what it takes, there’s now and there’s surrender.

Shoes 03:35
Verse 1 Can’t bring down that which holds you up. To break it in is half the fun. Through the motions, out the other side. To build your shelter is to affirm life. Chorus: I can’t make you ride a bike. I can’t make you tie your shoes. I can’t make your friends for you, and I can’t make you choose. Verse 2 While I’m here, I’ll be your guide, But ultimately, you’ll have to decide. The journey’s begun, ready or not. I’ll be your counsel, but you’ll call the shots. Chorus Verse 3 I’ll be with you, as I’ve said before. But you’ll be the one to open that door. Always something different, always something more. The key is indifference, of that much I’m sure.

Verse 1 I’m so frustrated with the waiting, and I welcome the coming... Relief it will be mind, in good time, you just wait and... See me, I’m right here, I want to hold you and I want to touch your... Face it, seems like all we have is each other and the mystery Chorus 1 I know you had big plans, and this won’t change that, I hope you understand. Verse 2 Seeing is believing, I hold that to my heart, and that is where I’ll... Start today, making sense and sorting through the mysteries of... Time lost here and there, why do I care, I can’t... Name it, call it what you will, what’s here is there still and will be tomorrow... Chorus 2 I know you had big plans, and this won’t change that, I hope you understand. Life will still be the way it always seemed, and maybe a little brighter.

Inland Sea 06:48
Looking out on the inland sea the first snow of winter beginning to fall. forlorn gray clouds of darker months set themselves on the day. Coming in from the north northeast the sun getting dim. Knowing when to stop and turn around that's the place where things begin. I had been there many times before, the wind biting at my face. Knowing when to get going was one thing, but knowing when to turn around, thats something else... try to breathe as wind push down on me. Looking in the face of God, everything and nothing. The weather didn't stop me, seas didn't neither. on deck or in the wheelhouse, sure we'd pull through. Fear didn't exist, it couldn't. fearless and maybe a little naive, but with death at every turn drunk our minds with love and whiskey The lakes were still rich with traffic captains and businessmen betting on the wind willing to try and push the season bet on the weather but respect the sea an extra few dollars the difference between ham & potted meat we took that bet and lost it in the fall of nineteen hundred thirteen

Wanted Heart 06:13
Verse 1 When I was young, the road seemed so open, rode fast and hard to leave behind my past. A lifetime sneaks up on you in minutes, and once it’s gone you can’t get it back Pictures on the wall, years gone by, time isn’t on my side, but it’s lost for good Realized too late this is a one shot deal, now I too painfully understood Chorus: I only wanted to be wanted. But now I run with the hunted. My mistakes are scars, lessons learned. I gave it all, touched the flames and got burned Verse 2 Rage builds as I look in the mirror, how could I have been so blind. Now, it couldn’t be any clearer, sometimes what ya seek, you don’t find. Now I know I could’ve got off easy, I could have turned around any time. But that devil got the best of me, and now I’ve reached the end of the line. Chorus: I only wanted to be wanted. But now I run with the hunted. My mistakes are scars, lessons learned. I gave it all, touched the flames and got burned

Deep Side 05:09
Silence deepened gulf, river breaks free Horizon’s fire sunset, edges burn brightly Pickin scabs, making scars, blood runs freely Chorus Separate the old times, from tomorrow Eyes bloodshot, red, close down the moment Clock ticks slowly, seconds are open, open… Chorus TV plays distant to the background Night sky overhead, star-veiled solace Losing air, shallowed, makes a full circle Chorus Ain’t no truth in what I’ve found – wash away, Wash away, Wasy away…

This Year 04:37
The song - the story - the one I try to tell Different than the one I’ve always held Untold - Clearly - the mystery unfolds The plot thickens - Greatest story never told Candle light vigil - I hold my breath I count the flickers - Sure I’m set Eager to swing it, been down so long Can’t give up - the answers - Got it all wrong This year could be different, but I ain’t gonna hold my breath; got pain on the brain obsessing insane and it’s really anyone’s guess. The blight - the fracture - Takes me away Like a Calgon trip, soothing, but never the same I hold dear my family - I know I can’t fail There’s a faith in tomorrow that always prevails. How long? Not long, as I gather my strength There’s gold in them hills, if I just make a break The light is green and it takes me away Slave to salvation - stasis remains. This year could be different, but I ain’t gonna hold my breath; got pain on the brain obsessing insane and it’s really anyone’s guess.
