Track Name: Ludlow, VT
Do you think we can?
Tryin’ to forget what we’re told
Hand me your hand
For a house your heart is a home

Something is broken
But do we know it yet?
The highway is set

Pass me the soaps
We're never pure so I don't think we should try
A kiss always floats
We’re salt and pepper shaking in time

Something is broken
What do we really know?
The highway is closed
The highway is cold

Are you feeling small?
Yeah, well baby so am I
Despite it all
We gotta swallow our pride

Something is broken
But you don’t seem to care
We’re going ’round in circles and squares
Going ’round in circles again
Track Name: Inside Your Inside
Sold for a song
You thought that money could do no wrong
Somewhere to land
And feel as smooth as a stone in the hand

Turn me sideways
There’s always more
Inside your inside

Reach for the sky
I don’t know why I even try
Toes in the sand
I don’t think that I understand

Turn me sideways
There’s always more
Inside your inside
Inside your inside
It’s softer than moonlight inside
Track Name: Crown on Fire
Who can change what you believe?
What can make you wanna leave?
Telling secrets to the sun
Makes me always wanna run to someone

Speaking for myself, am I less of a liar?
With my head out of the ground
The only leader in town
Who is wearing the crown on fire?

We are stuck up to our knees
This is up to you and me
I’m already on the run
Good intentions aren't enough
All this blood turns into mud on my tongue

Speaking for myself, am I less of a liar?
With my head out of the ground
The only leader in town
Who is wearing the crown on fire?
Track Name: Are You Feeling Heard?
When you’re feeling low, would you rather be alone?
And if you need some time, don’t you worry about mine

As long as you’re feeling heard tonight

Are you feeling heard?

To be a fountain and not a drain/when you’re feeling down
And the parts that can make you feel insane/you don’t have to make a sound

They’re just the flowers on the wall
Are you feeling heard at all?

Are you feeling heard?
Are you feeling heard?
Track Name: Something, the Water
All the things we haven’t done
We’re a long weekend with our voices gone
Somewhere in the light of chance
Can you hear the words in the silence?

There’s something in the water
We will grow into something bigger than each other
There’s something in the water
We will grow into something bigger than each other

Wrapped around around around; the world surrounds
Wrapped around around around; the world abounds

There’s something in the water
We will grow into something bigger than each other
There’s something in the water
We will grow into something bigger than each other
Track Name: Pillow Lines
Lights off, cover all your tracks
Leave the keys on the table
Unwilling and unable to come back

Threw away the painting you got me
That day up in the valley
You said it was about me
But you need not be alarmed, ’cuz I’m not sure

Left to wander
Steps in time (secret slumber)
I used to be alone again (pillow lines)

Don’t say you don’t remember me
Though it feels like a lifetime
Squeezed inside a moment with a sudden collapse

Hold hope you’ll drift across a dream
And take away the timeline
Defined by the divide sign
Between your life and mine at different times

Left to wander
Steps in time
Secret slumber
Pillow lines
I used to be alone again
Steps in time
Secret slumber
I used to be alone again
Pillow lines
Track Name: Cat & Mouse
Re-arrange yourself
Mythological abstractions
No longer a desire to acquire your reactions
Creatures of the comfort zone
Too afraid of our own fear inside our bones

And the record keeps spinning
The candle’s burning out
And we’ll keep on winning
This game of cat & mouse

To the lighthouse within
Questioning my innocence
And why is this strength what makes me feel so helpless?
This little wrinkle in my suit says there’s comfort in the truth
But how predictable are you?

And the record keeps spinning
The candle’s burning out
And we’ll keep on winning
This game of cat & mouse
Track Name: Turn the World Around
Can anyone see me anymore?
Oh, I’m a ghost but I can see right through you
You’re too young to know what you’ve got
Excuses gone and lost, I see right through you

Turn the world around
In the blink of an eye
Can I leave it all behind
Or is it too late to try?

Your secrets live beneath my feet
Buried with the memory right through me

Turn the world around
In the blink of an eye
Can I leave it all behind
Or is it too late to try?

Turn the world around
In the blink of an eye
Can I leave it all behind
Or is this a waste of time?

Turn the world around
Turn the world around
Turn the world around
Track Name: The Story of My Morals
Paint me like a puzzle and treat me like a mirror
The first recurring nightmare, the second big premier
Whistle past the graveyard, decisions left to time
I see no other evil quite like mine

I can see you wanna let it all burn, at least for a while
(Tell me when you’ve had enough)
The telltale trail of the night begin, the course set wild
(Tell me when you’ve had enough)

The story of my morals is a letdown in the end
You can try to twist it, but it tends not to bend
Bite my candy apple, take me for a spin
The depth of empty time comes from within

I can see you wanna let it all burn, at least for a while
(Tell me when you’ve had enough)
The telltale trail of the night begin, the course set wild
(Tell me when you’ve had enough)
Track Name: Hungry Again
I can’t say we tried our best
Love wasn’t made to last this time

How quickly it all can end, my friend
So then I go to bed hungry again
Hungry again

I tried to save you
Before I could save me
We were so close
We were so far away

There’s nowhere to hide inside the bitterness of dying fruit
And in the dark of the dark, there is a missing light
But where was I?
And where were you?

I tried to save you
Before I could save me
We were so close
We were so far away
