Track Name: Washout
I ride this full train alone
Back to a box
Four walls and silent phone
Pining for pine and dreading the drone
Of flat lines in an empty home
I can't decide how nothing will sit in my mind
I don't want to be alone but alone I dine
At arms lengths and hair breaths
Each one's closer to death
I can't decide how nothing will sit in my mind
I don't want to be alone but alone I dine, closer to death
Track Name: Wallflower
So I took a trip away and I was counting down days
Back through my mind I can escape but it's not the same
As I rest in old cliches "you be you and I'll be me
You be you and I'll be me" I guess that's okay
Wrapped up in fantasies we stay, pulling teeth to shed again
I'll wait for you all day, I'll wait for you all day
A fly up on the wall that sees nothing at all
I'll wait for you all day and I guess that's okay
I know that when we're gone the world will carry on
Nothing stops the setting sun
Pour me into you through the pouring rain
Heads titled back, drowning in our brains
Too sick to pretend, too sick to pretend that nothing ends.
I know that when we're gone the world will carry on
Nothing stops the setting sun
But maybe, just maybe
Love will travel on, carried off in song
But I could be wrong, I could be wrong
Perhaps we're all forgotten when we're gone, under the setting sun
So I'll hold you close just in case and I guess we'll be okay
Track Name: Doubt
Inescapable, undeniable
The ever looming question
What if I'm wrong? Where will I go?
Nowhere to hide from myself
Where will I go?
Infinite answers, infinite mistakes to make
The absurdity of certainty
Restless in questions with endless paths to take
Restless in questions
Am I here? Is this real? 
Until the end, when there's nothing to say 
Ash in the wind, a faded grey stale body in a box
Dragged through the dirt by the ticking clock
Infinite answers, infinite mistakes to make
Restless in pieces
Endless paths to the same fate
Dragged through the dirt are the minds of men
Dragged through the dirt again and again till the end
Everything ends
Track Name: Life Moves
I wish I could blame the year that took you from me
Live a life in compartments but time doesn't agree
Doesn't ask for directions, not once gets lost on the way
Drive was just a verb to me, just a simple verb to me
This borrowed life, on borrowed time
No joy in treading on you
No love from the strong
No comfort in solitude
No hope in song
Drive was just a verb to me, just a simple verb to me
My destination is out of reach
Blinded by white on paper my pupils dilate
No room for empty voices
No love in hate
No pity left for myself
No time to waste
Drive was just a verb to me but that was yesterday
My words release me and I am free
Track Name: Dandelion
Shedding old skin to grow new skin to live in
I begin drawing straight lines between you and I to calculate time
With love out loud caught in throat I bite my tongue till it hurts
Shedding old skin to grow new skin to live in
I'm swallowed up in words, I'm drowning in verbs that flood my mind
I bury my face in your hands, my fingers ground down to dust
With love out loud caught in my throat, my silver tongue turns to rust
I hold your face in my hands, my fingers wrapped up in curls
With love out loud caught in my throat I fold desire in words
"Let's get away from here, let's shed the world"
With love out loud caught in throat I bite my tongue till it hurts
With love out loud caught in my throat
I choke
Track Name: Hypocrisy
Not trying to be anything, just trying be
You mean nothing to me because you've got nothing to say 
Bigger isn't better and I'm not bitter
I should know, seen both sides and felt no better
The truth is inside
When you head out to be amused
Stare across the room and into their eyes
If you can see they don't believe in all that they do
They deserve nothing from you
It's not the numbers that sing a song
All these thumbs get dragged along
No love is pure when it's sold to you
And you sell the love in all that you do, all that you do
Your voice is not my problem
It's the choice to make no difference 
when everyone's listening and your message is misery
No hope, no help, no philosophy
Sometimes what people want isn't quite what they need
The truth is inside
It's not the heads that nod along
It's the mind that makes a song
No love is pure when it's sold to you
And you sell the love in all that you do
When will you realise the truth is inside?
Track Name: Cloudbursts
Welcome to the garden
Every flower grown in the ashes of dead stars
Nature and its captives, all we see are their old photographs
Just pin pricks and scars of men
Maybe this wasn't all meant for them
A wilderness wasted in your eyes
The sky the birds and the trees
This kind of beauty brings me to my knees
But it's not enough for you so what's the world to do?
When the world is you, unsatisfied
What is this walk? Where are we going?
I find beauty in not knowing
The earth compels me and I"m free to die
Burning at both ends in this brilliant light
Mouth-breather, you see the world through plastic eyes
From the bottom of a new low you turn to the sky, unsatisfied
What is this walk? Where are we going?
I find beauty in not knowing
The earth compels me and I'm free to die
I want to feel it all in a world deaf, dumb and blind
Start living, stop living a lie
Burning at both ends in the brilliant light
I turn and say goodnight
Track Name: Moral Decay
Enough, we've taken too much
Thumbs full, opposing you, blocking out the flood
More lost than can be replaced 
On a dying planet you cling to faith when you should some shame.
Who do you pray to for warmer weather, when nothing fits together?
Alone, I hope for rain
Afraid of everything, scared to be anything at all
Ground down into grains, consumed by my rage 
I quiver in these words;
Embrace the shrinking cage, embrace the caving world
We should have known better, when nothing got better
We should have known better, should have shown some shame
So much is lost, more than can live again
On a dying planet you scream "give"
You should show some shame
All in the same race, under the same name
You should be so sorry, you should be ashamed
Embrace the shrinking cage, embrace the caving world
Embrace the shrinking cage, you should show some shame
Track Name: Folsom
I pack up these feelings and carry them home
The book I'm reading, love notes tucked into the folds
Never let me go
I'm finding meanings when I should feel alone
I won't pretend to feel at home
I spell devotion in a hollow home
I seek directions to parts unknown
Never let me go
With a gesture so small you remind me how it was before
You say "I'm sorry, I know it's hard to remember 
You're not alone anymore"
Track Name: Newspaper Sky
So much has tainted now a constant's lost
So much has shook me to the core and broken my trust
I've got no regrets, just days I wish I could forget
I beg each day these thoughts stay to set me free
Today is Father's Day but not for me
Growing new colours in your old eyes
Newspaper grey to match the granite skyline
Just one more song and then I'm done 
Done asking why, done wasting time 
Done with comfort in old lies
This a cruel world but for now this world is mine
How should I know where you'll go?
Ripped apart and left wide open without the tearing of flesh
Drained of everything and still denied a graceful death
Teeth clenched I sit and spit and through the wheezing of my chest
My thoughts repeat until I sleep "there's nothing left"
Track Name: Downpour
I am no better but I know better
Roots in a box, dust on a case, it's all the same
Now all reason lies in tethers
Trapped under fickle thoughts of pleasure
Lost in stares tearing hair through the hail
Eternal rain, free from disease and mindless to pain
No judgement, no end, no shame
The river flows downstream, so it seems
Surrounded by the deranged
The hiss of the handsome struck dumb
The hum from the straining brain
Picking at parts and pieces, each drop more insane
Enraged by the numbers that drip from digits dragged along in the rain
Eternal rain that never ceases, free from disease and mindless to pain
No judgement, no end just rain
Eternal rain, free from disease and mindless to pain
No judgement, no end, no shame
Eternal rain, free from disease and mindless to pain
No judgement, no end just rain
