Track Name: Here
My God it's come to this
A wrestle with remarks
With whiskey on my breath
Are the blinders finely gone
Are the flood gates open
Are you
The last one left a mark
A rare reminder
Bold and cold in the same breath
Is this a test
And I'm failing it
Are you here
Or have you left
Track Name: Endrun
You wear your heart on your sleeve
Not a badge of honor as it could be
But something you can hardly even see
You wear your heart on your sleeve
For all the paper cuts I've seen It's yours that I believe
You've got the sweetest disease
I should learn to pray your god
Learn to read the leaves
See the openings
Where there's none
Make the end run
You said the sea was turning
You told me quit my evil ways
You said the sea was tuning
You told me quit my evil ways
Or with the fishes make my bed and lay
Someday, someday sunshine
I should learn to pray your god
Learn to read the leaves
see the openinings.
Where there's none
Make the end run
Track Name: Murky Muddy
In the murky muddy wasteland
There's a whole lot of thinking going on
New ways to take your cues
It's a bear trap
In the quicksand
It's your fiance with one ear closely pressed to your every tune
And we'll all look out for you
We'll all look out for everyone
And you
In the murky muddy wasteland
There's a good thing and she waits for you
And she'll lull you fast asleep in her pillowy arms
And she'll keep you wide awake with her pillowy charms
And when slumping on your bar stool
Make sure your head's closely aligned with the bar in front of you
And we'll all look out for you
We'll all look out for everyone
And you
Track Name: Time to Sleep
Maybe I 

Should have been there

Or stayed a bit longer

While the wind
Quaked the trees

By the lake
And with no end in site

I took a look into your eyes

They were dark 

And as heavy as a stone

So maybe I should just leave you alone
I’m so sorry

My mind and body

A deep dark and crazy

Time to sleep

At the time
It felt right
Everything just fit so nice
We watched the wind 
 

Quake the trees 
 

By the lake

And with my arms open wide
 

I brushed you hair to the side

Kissed you neck 
 

Then your ears

Then your eyes

And I'm not sorry

They got plans


I’m not kidding

They are cunning 

and so witty

Just watch the News
 

Or turn on any screen
 


From a boat 
 

Or by land

In the swift desert sand
 
 

Swooping in to grab what they can
 

Just take a look at what they did to Japan
I’m so sorry

My mind is haunting

A deep dark and hazy

Time to sleep
Track Name: Feather and the Stone
Watch the water
It’s like a sweet cascade
See you are like the foam
Washing on the stone
Stirring up in me
A swirling melody
It's something that I can hardly sing

And to the breeze that blows
and tussles up your hair
It’s just a quick reminder that
The wind is always there
To take you in his arms
To wisk your cares away
To blow my memory from your mind
In hopes that you will stay
And as you rise and fall the skies
while I’m stuck here at home
Don’t forget us
The Feather and the Stone
Track Name: Ripples
I'll watch your eyes
You watch the sunset
The two horizons that do free me
As I lose a little every-time
And it's like that every night you take me home
Watch the ripples growing outward from to stone

Can't eat or sleep these days for dreaming
The blooming light that rises eastward
I gave you strength you gave me time

Had to take it
Couldn't leave it
I had to go

Watch the Ripples growing out turn to stone

I'll watch your eyes you watch the sunset
The two horizons that do free me
And it's like that every night you take me home
Watch the ripples growing outward from the stone
Track Name: Hawks
Whos side are we really on
The fox or the razor wire
The hawks or the cages
Frozen in a stage

Brave the harsh winters
Basked in the summers
Raised up the cities
Raised up ourselves

That's the part we loved
That's what we call living
That's the part we loved
Track Name: Soak'd
You feel like giving up
The sky is black with arrows
Everybody wants the thrills
But too afraid to let go
Keep your troubles down
Swimming in the shallows
Me, my jeans are soaked
From riding on the rainbows

Find the reverie
Dress it up in plain clothes
Everybody wants the thrills
All standing on their shoulders
Bring your body close
When the sky is black with arrows
Until your jeans are soaked
From riding on the rainbows

Say it like it’s wrote
And elevated something
Filling up your throat
The wind into your sailboat
Will it be a thrill?
Time to kill
Will your jeans are soaked
From riding on the rainbows
Track Name: Joline
Joline sits in fields of helicopters

On a mountainside of odd opinions

Never to want the things I need

Only to wade in awe

Too deep into the sea 

Of all that it could be
Is a dream is a dream

Joline says the fuzz is all around her

Hiding in the trees and underneath the flowers

Never to tie her freedom feet

Only to try

And we’ll laugh until we bleed 

From the love that we receive

From the birds and from the bees

Is a dream is a dream

Track Name: Foxgloves
Pocket full of papers don't you want to have it all
All the same sad horses that are made up
In the mind of the many who settle to the sound
Of the rising tower up from the burning ground
Don't it make you want to blow it down
Don't it make you want to shed your skin
And just give in

We'll open up less as we get on
We'll fall asleep running out of things to say
No more climb trees no more free fall
Just run with the many and make our way
Don't it make you want to shed your skin
Don't it make you want to bite your tongue
Took years to get it wrong
