Track Name: Train
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
Track Name: Gravity
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.
Track Name: Run Away
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.
Track Name: Outside
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
Track Name: Don't Stop Loving
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
Track Name: Lonely Sea
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
Track Name: All These Years
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
Track Name: Twelve
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.
Track Name: Everybody Knows
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
