Track Name: Everybody's A Critic
{I'm tracking let's go}
Track Name: Where
Don't have to be afraid
at the center of attention
I'd rather say it to a crowd than to your face

There’s no thought of where we’re going
No thought of where we’ll be

And then we crashed
Fell at least I think we have
No complaints a scratch a scrape and a nervous laugh
And I cant look past you, No I can’t see through you anymore

There's no thought of where we're going
There's no thought of where we'll be
There's no thought of where we're going

As morning approaches
I head off to catch some sleep
I sigh, let go and sink
Deep into the sheets

The facts and situation
Blend and haunt my dreams

I wake up and smile
I woke up and smiled
A quiet reason why

There's no thought of where we're going
There's no thought of where we'll be
There's no thought of where we're going
There's no though of where we'll be

{And I can't look past you
And I can't see through you anymore}
Track Name: Kings
{Aw, dude I get a killswitch now!}
*ba ba ba ba*
*ba ba ba ba ba*
[Don't hit that by accident]

{3, 4}

The year was 1954 or so
Made his way back across the Pacific
Ocean air, breeze off the coast
Hometown girl still here he hoped

The time goes on, and she forgets
And when he died she never
Felt it when he left

Introduce yourself friend in the mirror
Foreign reflection she says hello
Introduce yourself friend in the mirror
Foreign reflection you say hello

Left on her own
Gentle pleasant, quiet, cold
My Name left on the ground
deadpan pictures deadened sound

Where am I and does he hate me?
It’s been so long since he stopped by
There’s only one, you know I found him
There’s only one, you know he's mine

Left on her own
Gentle pleasant, quiet, cold
My Name left on the ground
deadpan pictures deadened sound

Where am I, and does he hate me?
It’s been so long since you stopped by
Track Name: Say It To A Crowd
{do you think they'll
figure it out?}
< d o y o u w a n t t h e m t o ? >
{some of it

not all of it}

Track Name: Chapels
{Let's play
let's play the song}

A good man's ghost probably haunts this place

There’s something
About old chapels
Hours staring up at lights
Patterns in my eyes
Never enough

Where did the time go?
Where did my drive go to change?

I’ve been sitting too long
But I still feel the same

I’ve been wasting my time

Small town
Tight knit
To no one

I know
That face
From somewhere

I know
That face
I swear

Sleeves rolled back down
Can you feel it too?
I can only hope
I can only hope
It lasts til the morning

Did you hear ‘bout the vigil downtown?
Such a shame that the vigil’s downtown
Send my regards
Send my regards

I hope it does something.
Track Name: Contrast
I like to think just in the dark
Sun puts out too much
Open up the lens
Curtain
Exposure's not that bad

You need it to see
The colors from the shade

Can we get back
to where we were?
Was it fleeting
or can we make it last?

When we both knew
The world was alive and
well

Shadows cast by tunnels
Makes them worth the trip
Canyons form the hills
God knows I could use the lift

Ears back like a dog you limp back home
You did the right thing
Did the right thing so you know
Ears back like a dog you limp back home
You did the right thing
Did the right thing now you know

But you've only shown
That you know you've grown
And isn't that the beauty of it
all

Can we get back
to where we were?
Was it fleeting
or can we make it last?
Can we get back
to where we were?
Was it fleeting
or can we make it?
Track Name: Carry
didn’t speed up, in the rain
The other day

Hat still set back glancing at the gray

And I know it won’t carry over

Fly over states
Mountains and plains
Pages and papers that
Don’t say, your name
But we both know
That I’m spelling it out

And I know it won’t carry over

and I hope the place that you call home
Takes you in
Escaping pavement, trading it in
For her grin
You chose right
You manned up I can’t deny
Never crossed your finish line

And I know it won’t carry over

Now I’m on landlocked Island Time

you haven’t made the call but
Neither have I

Set in bustling opposite lives

Cause I got class you got 9 to 5
Your Family, my friends
Separate grass, green divide

I tell myself
There’s no reconcile

And I know it won’t carry over
Track Name: Letter
But I’m writing you a letter
Cause the winters up here
Are way too slow
And I’m writing you a letter
Cause the winters up here
Are way too slow

The Carrier's been delayed
Crossing the mountains between us

Taking his time I’m sure

-
But what he doesn’t know
Is the letters, they've arrived
Now they’re buried in the snow
Now they're buried in the frozen tide

“Brother, I hope that all is well
I'm Crossing the mountains when spring thaw pierces
The divinely frozen hell”

It was his response
lost in transit
Describing thoughts of a lone ship on the Atlantic
A trail far too long
And meager his rations equipped for the weather being this strong
A last testament
He felt it cliche for in his hands to lay and so he sent it on along

"And I’m writing you a letter
Cause winters up here
Are way too slow”

Track Name: Skyline
She found her last home on the third story
Two windows in every room
But they were locked that day

you came to know as the sun began to rise
it may as well have never cleared the trees and met your eyes
you came to know as the sun began to rise
it may as well have never cleared the trees

You can’t see the skyline
No view just a waste
Could she see the skyline?
No view, was it a waste

Is there any point in writing about her death?
Ten more newspaper printings can’t say what hasn’t
been said yet
what hasn't been said yet

But it’s the stories
And lives
That come to an end
That come to an end

She was 10 years old
it tore you in two

Remember you told me she’d ask
If she could come home with you

Cut short by a bursted burning battery

A quiet falls over
A quiet falls over everyone

Sun pours over horizon
Loss
placed
firmly at
your feet
Track Name: Talk
Television screen
Drenches walls
and I'm left
Lying on the floor by myself

Spinning ceiling fan
hours spent
dwelling on the feelings that I know won't see next
year

And I
love to talk
About how I'm tired
all the time

And I
need to talk
air through my chest
pay me no mind

Simple words in hand
clouded eyes
a weight
lifted off my shoulders
that's for sure

Threatening skies
still sit outside
it's fine
never minded nasty weather anyhow

And I
love to talk
About how I'm tired
all the time

And I
need to talk
air through my chest
pay me no mind

Telling myself daily
there must be something wrong
but now
I'm going to leave that all behind

Telling myself daily
there must be something wrong
you all
you taught me to leave that all roadside
Track Name: Roadside
Blank eyes that stare me through the most
Blank mind that still seems full of hope

Left
To it's own
Devices
No
Machine, no leverage

Left
Lying Faded
in the sun

Skin
Parched for marks
Spine come undone

Blank eyes that stare me through the most
Blank mind that still seems full of hope

Frigid
Air
of Silence biting

Ragged
Edge
Not much left worth,
a "Worse for wear"

A body
lying struck down
left aware

A body
left aware, left aware

And so I grabbed a
hold of his skull and I pulled
and I screamed in

All of the words that
I'd been taught over the years
now my voice is
gone

And so I grabbed a
hold of his skull and I pulled
and I screamed in

All of the words that
I'd been taught over the years
now my voice is
gone

Oh roaming traveler
Dead on the road away from home
Your spirit escaped
From the rib-cage where you kept her

To fly
Prematurely to the light
It’s not your time
I’ll speak you back to life

As dendrites clasp hands with axons
Cannon shot synapses fire at will
I will transfer my essence
Through astral projections
Of self through the void of your skull
A reanimate being
Somnambulant vessel of flesh
I command you to rise, Lazarus, rise
Get to your feet open your eyes
Open your eyes

The blank eyes I'd seen took on a familiar glimmer
and as I passed out with the dirt in my eyes,
the traveler
began to stand

Blank eyes that stare you through the most
Blank mind that still seems full of hope
My blank eyes stare you through the most
My blank eyes stare you through

{bow bow bow}

{YES}

(I did that right!)
Track Name: Cedar
We made it back
But not to where we were
this is our home now
Crumpled up
Thrown into the street
Swept up what my life was meant to be

But now I know, taught by the best
Sieve mind clogged retains and now it’s time to rest

On this plateau, tired but ready to take flight
perched on the cedar that still sits set in search for sun light

I settle in
Won't settle down
Track Name: Tinnitus
I can't sleep
Even If I tried
The only sound I hear’s
The constant ringing in my ears, no

On my own in my search for quiet
Last time, had to cross an ocean just to find it


I can’t sleep
Even If I tried
The only sound I hear’s
The constant ringing in my ears
no I can't sleep

Even when the lights go out, No I can't sleep
(Even when the lights go out)

And I couldn't sleep
Even If I tried
The only sound I hear’s
The constant ringing in my ears
no I can't sleep


(It's annoying, isn't it?)


{MAKE IT STOP}
(unintelligible)


EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
