Train 03:43
From the edge of the yard hear the beating of our hearts Adrenaline is surging in pulling our nerves apart Time has come to make our move hot sweat beads upon our brow Squinting thru the open space relishing our freedom Squat down don’t make noise hope he doesn’t see our packs Make it through this sketchy crawl and we'll never look back Climb up on the empty car run across with shaky legs Taking in expansiveness writing our own story now Can you hear the sound? Can you feel the pace? Everything is open to you now everything is falling into place Feel the rushing wind over deafening sounds Everything is open to you now everything is open now

Gravity 03:56
Magnificent space folds around you Stagnant and cold like the ones you have left behind Perspective makes a sickening motion There is no turning back now Deeply troubled I’m seeking a haven to hide Shallow fleeting just for a moment to shine Will my name be remembered or smothered in shame through passage of time? Formidable stakes, shortened lifetime Lack of gravity won’t lift my heavy heart Decisions made, a rash impulse Free of orbit a captive of fate Deeply troubled I’m seeking a haven to hide Shallow fleeting just for a moment to shine Will my name be remembered or smothered in shame thru passage of time? You Ok? Taking on what is mine Don’t know how I could just abandon You create while I merely exist For my dull selfish craving Perspective makes a sickening motion There is no turning back now.

Run Away 03:46
Run away softly Fold in the night Currents pull you in time. Run away slowly Careful the wind blows Seasons will chain you with time.

Outside 05:00
Morning light spills cross the floor Unhindered by cardboard propped up as a makeshift door All possessions tucked close Guarded and sleepless he wades thru the night Oh it won’t be long, Till he’s swept up and moved along Fortune can’t discriminate What if he was your own son For we all live right under the big open sky Caught up in what must seem important to meet our needs Righteously disengaged It’s easy to assign blame For our whole lives a series of storms Floating up high on the swell you clearly see the shore Wind and currents can change Pulling you out in the dark of night Oh it won’t be long, Till he’s swept up and moved along Fortune can’t discriminate What if he was your own son For we all live right under the big open sky Caught up in what must seem important to meet our needs Righteously disengaged It’s easy to assign blame Imagine you're forced to sleep outside

Turn out the lights it won’t be long Finn is tucked in and he’s signing his song Let go the thoughts that crowd your mind Evening is here let me hold you tight Life’s been mad since we made our little boy Time keeps slipping way too fast So much change But whatever we go thru we must remember to Don’t stop loving all the precious moments we made new Keep that fire burning hot so nothing can get through Take the time to rekindle when things get away Find your center in my heart it always will be safe Turn out the lights it won’t be long Simone is tucked in and she's feeling so strong Let go the thoughts that crowd your mind Evening is here let me hold you tight Life’s been mad since we made our little girl Time keeps slipping way too fast So much change But whatever we go thru we must remember to Don’t stop loving all the precious moments we made new Keep that fire burning hot so nothing can get through Take the time to rekindle when things get away Find your center in my heart it always will be safe

Lonely Sea 05:57
Drifting out, far from shore, kelp tugging her slow Here’s the place she’ll call home Siren’s dance, grab her hand, you are alive In too deep, hypnotized, by brilliant green light Beckoned in by the glow Yield to me, lonely sea, you are alive The places we don’t know Are ones we long for most The revelry in eventide Comes just before the storm Longing for trees and sand, as currents bellow A barricade mile from land Captive now, ocean wide, you are alive Rooted deep, holdfast grown, she sways in the tides Finally ocean’s bride Yield to me, lonely sea, you are alive

All these years, there’s still more to come Remember the time when we were young Only you, can make me laugh and cry You warm up my heart, you don’t have to try Without you, I couldn’t go on When you feel sick like a coming storm I held on tight to each and every day I carried such hope, I feel on my knees to pray To pray, to pray You could have been gone With only one hand, your cards had been drawn With fate on your side A strong peaceful mind, and will to survive All these years, there’s so much we’ve done My heart would race when I wanted to run You settled me in, been my saving grace Focused my mind, promised to stay We were just kids, so very long ago Now we’ve turned grey, but you still shine like gold One more day, is that too much to ask Tell me it’s hard, tell me you need me to stay To stay, to stay You could have been gone With only one hand, your cards had been drawn With fate on your side A strong peaceful mind, and will to survive When life feels dark it all seems to fall apart Don’t you give it up, don’t you give it up

Twelve 04:19
Kicked around since the start of war Don’t know what I’m fighting for Someone who can take me in I’ll put up with all your selfish complicated whims It’s been awhile since they took my folks With people’s fears it’s hard to cope Tortured by the constant change All I need is somewhere I can finally call home Now I can’t turn back, it’s been way to long I can see you’re here, but the damage has been done I’m a broken lad, only just turned twelve Haven seen the worst, part of all the people flowing thru my life Now I can’t turn back, it’s been way to long I can see you’re here, but the damage has been done I’m a broken lad, only just turned twelve Haven see the worst, In my own private hell Even with your smile, and your warm embrace I’m not worthy of, can’t you see it in my face I’ll just wander off, in my own sweet time Bringing with myself, a real sense of loss with all my brief Encounters they all seem to end in lies.

Born into shame, cultured in vicious heartache Broken in two, constantly paranoid view Given the time, could it be mended in you Courage alone can’t revive Are we just dough that can be molded into Your reckless state, inherited too Stories to tell, as tall as the mountain of shit you sell Fills up the room, of lonely drunks who get you Given the time, could it be mended in you Courage alone can’t revive Are we just dough that can be molded into Your reckless state, inherited too Cause everybody knows Your entitlement has grown For it’s taking up our space You need to be alone
