Touch turns to rust On the parts that are bare All I can feel Is the cold in the air You’re still with me But I’m better alone I’ll float to the top or I’ll Sink like a stone A house made of sand and We brace for the wind Nothing but dust Beneath all that can live I follow your voice But I can’t hear a sound For the beating of drums And they’re shaking the ground The breakers are set But the lights won’t come on We fumble in darkness And wait for the dawn A sage tries to spin This web is not true Wind whispers then groans I’m not here for you The rune bears the fruit And it’s coming for me I tried and I failed And that’s all you could see The ache and the lust From my ancient blue bones They’re waking me up and Taking me home

Drive 03:11
Its been a long year Safe to say I haven’t been here But falling into everywhere - else So come along dear Better not to fall apart here The city lights and trees can hear us now We can get back up and drive into the night And if the pull is strong well I’m alive I want your hands on me And your arms around me There’s nowhere that I’d rather be I find the time it disappears And sleep can’t chase away my fears I wake you when it’s early dear We can get back up and drive into the night And if the pull is strong well I’m alive I’m alive I’m alive Don’t want this window shut I catch myself we’re good enough Hey summer breeze: want to see what we can be Don’t want this window shut I catch myself we’re good enough Hey summer breeze: want to see what we can be Don’t want this window shut I catch myself we’re good enough Hey summer breeze: want to see what we can be

High Water 03:58
I’m not sure it’s fair The rain from the eaves trough is keeping me up Or maybe it’s thoughts my dreams are made of And it might keep on raining past the high water mark And I might keep on waking on my own in the dark How can I get there if don’t even try these streets keep on flooding and no one asks why I’m mad and I’m tired of the absence of heart I’m scared of looking For the end of the start I invited the silence I can stand til it’s night then I want more than myself and I know it’s not right Then a voice down the hallway calls me to his side he says “What is our purpose? What is life?”

SJL3 03:25
Smoke fills our eyes and everything’s on fire tonight Thought we’d step outside and see the Northern lights But not tonight Can we slow things down? Can we stop time? These things can burn underground Chasing roots and lines like secret mines for years We’ve thrown away the balance that We’d barely found and we’ve fucked up all the gears Can we slow things down? Can we stop time? Burn it all into your mind The days may pass but they’re not left behind Can I walk and meet you there? Where the smoke and heat and the night hang in the air? Can we slow things down? Can we stop time?

Train rumbles by I’m afraid like an earthquake Rattles and booms in the sky unseen lights make my heart shake You blow me away You blow me away Light rips the sky and the sound hits my ears like a heartbeat Crowd feel the rain and we’re left on our own in the dead streets You blow me away You blow me away Burned out and faded Young and unjaded Crying at me looking to score Desperate folks wandering crowds take what they can take Reach for whatever we can for our own sakes You blow me away You blow me away Change of guard watch the shadows get long at the main gate Dark invites stars and the scars as we tempt fate You blow me away You blow me away

Rules 04:15
Darkness brings her back To the places where she can’t swallow Can’t take it back Laughter is the mask Of the day that they will hate her Can’t take it back Who made these rules She was a fool Stalemate won’t stop time Moon rise she moves the line Shadows built by sunlight Hide lies she moves the line Who made these rules She was a fool

Marguerite 04:45
The valley's still cold, but its spring in my heart Only hope that you’ll remember me You changed your name and cut your hair but I’d recognize your eyes anywhere, maybe thats, thats what scares me the most They say true love stories should never end And I need to see your face again Well the winters are long and the fight goes on But my heart is beating for you Marguerite We’ll hide away in the hills above this town The plateaus safe I swear, Marguerite Freedom here comes at such an awful cost And noone can ever tell you what you’ve lost They say true love stories should never end And I need to see your face again Well the winters are long and the fight goes on But my heart is beating for you Marguerite Ohhh mon coeur Ohhh mon coeur Ohhh mon coeur Ohhh mon coeur They raided the shop on Strasbourg and they threw us all in jail And that train leaves tomorrow but I’d rather face the gunfire hail Now the things that I’m thinking are things that you’ll never know So kiss your kids for me, and tell your husband that I loved you so They say true love stories should never end And I need to see your face again Well the winters are long and the fight goes on But my heart is beating for you Marguerite

It’s not the spill. It’s the broken glass on the floor. It’s not who we are, it’s that we could have been so much more. Now that I’ve found you, Now that it’s time to let you go, I guess I’m just hoping this clock would start to slow. Here we’re surrounded, There’s a million miles to go. A town full of fiction, What’s real we’ll never know. I’m walking towards the plane, Willing my heart to follow me. I stop at a payphone And now we’re who we used to be. In a world full of anger, strangers, and lies Seems a shame to already be saying our goodbyes. Slow Slow Slow Slow Here we’re surrounded, There’s a million miles to go. A town full of fiction, What’s real we’ll never know. I’m walking towards the plane, Willing my heart to follow me. I stop at a payphone And now we’re who we used to be.

Mera Song 03:11
The cold brick floor is underneath my feet The house is quiet now but the dogs are in the streets Its just you and me in this high-ceilinged room And I watch your eyes as you’re searching for the moon Another sleepless night; another bleary day The sun beats down the dust comes up but the dogs are here to stay And when it cools, and the jasmine blooms I will hold you close as you’re searching for the moon Maybe we forget the choices that we make Rain pours down, the creeks rise up, and people will always change On those nights that you’d wake up I sure hoped you’d grow up soon But now I’d trade anything to see you searching for the moon These days are bittersweet; and time just disappears I want to be here for you but I will let you steer As winter yields to spring and the short nights of June I hope that I still get to join you searching for the moon

Patterns 03:46
I’m scared like a leaf quivering As if I don’t know what you’d think of me I’ve shown you so many things I thought you’d never see A little time, time tonight For someone with so many words I’ve got nothing to say But I won’t be done saying goodbye until you You can’t see me wave A little time, time tonight A little time, time tonight Nothing’s ever set in stone And it probably shouldn’t be We will walk our own roads and we will Set each other free These patterns in the carpet Are where I cast my eyes If I don’t look at you directly Than I’d never realize A little time, time A little time, time tonight No matter how far away from me Or however far you go There’ll always be a space for you
