- Track Name: Eating Lemons
You will wear your soul out like that. You try to be, be, be someone else. Why not try something more like yourself? You can’t go on like this way forever. You try to say, “hey man it’s just whatever” for all of your life. All doing the best we can, just young, incorrect citizens. You can still be true and be your father’s son. You’re not the only one. You can’t go on like this way forever. You try to say, “hey man it’s just whatever” for all of your life. You could die, die just like that. Go down swingin’. You could die, die just like that. Go out livin’.
- Track Name: Waking Up
Waking up today, I had the sense that it was time for change, but feeling demoralized the perception was hushed and I’m quiet now. Waking up today, I could barely feel my face. Not jumping up out of bed, but falling instead because my body’s numb. Look into a mirror. Do you recognize yourself? You’ll find sometimes you don’t. Your friends ask if you’re okay. You’re turning blue as they wait for answer, but you won’t. Oh no, you won’t. I feel my insides showing out. I want medicine but no amount can take me away, take me away from this. I must confront this confusing mess. Mother said, “son always do your best child, child now.” I wish I listened to you then. Look into a mirror. I do not recognize myself. I’ve found sometimes I don’t. My friends ask if I’m okay. I’m turning blue as they wait for an answer, but I won’t. I should have listened to you then.
- Track Name: Stay
Stay there, stay right where you are. Stay there, stay right where you are and I’ll wait here, wait right where I am. And if I’m careful with my eyes, I won’t have to see you again. You know, you know who you are and who you want to be. Just stay clear, but I don’t. I don’t roam too far. I just stay near. I can’t pull myself away and if I wait here, wait right where I am, if I’m careful with my eyes I won’t have to see you again. You know, you know who you are and who you want to be. You know, you know who are. And worst of all, I know, I know who I am and who I want to be.
- Track Name: Windows (live)
She looked at me so sad and said, “no, nothing, no I just can’t make sense. Not sure of anything or who I am, and if I’m sure I’m sure of that.” I let the silence sing. “I want to tell you everything, all about how this last year has been.” Well I can’t say I know how you feel. I let the silence sing. In being here, I find some peace. In the face of everything, I find harmony. How can I say that in a way that you’d believe? I let the silence sing.
