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: Monsters/Stay
I have stated and often contemplated, posed the question, “could I make it on my own?” By on my own I mean, no thoughts of you and me, no me and you, just me alone standing true. / 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: Most of Everything
Well, I gave away most of everything to see if then I could get free. I cut off most my hair because I was getting scared that I might be hiding something. It was like seeing my face for the first, for the very first time. And in going outside, I think how I might have changed. I wonder, “who am I today?” Now, I haven’t got a lot but it’s much more than I thought I’d need to get by… a simple path, a simple life.
Track Name: Color Quiet Loud
Running out of room, running out of time. I’m shoveling dirt. I’m moving ground, so I can hide. Every now and then, I feel the walls come closing in. I do my best to disappear. I am the sum of all my fears. Oh, sometimes. Sometimes courage is as courage does, but I keep falling short. I wasted all the time that I was looking for. Surrounded by my things not my loved ones and listening to voices out a box like I don’t got one. They argue all the issues, know the facts, and blur the rules. They keep on pushing, we keep fighting, and we all look like the fools. Well I think I’ll make my own mind up from here on out. I want color. I want quiet. I want loud. Give me honest. Give me free. I will give back. All come together, build it up, and make it last. Oh sometimes courage is as courage does, but I keep falling short. I wasted all the time that I was looking for. Something’s out of sync deep inside of me. Are you feeling broken? Hope is a friend that we keep on sending… Don’t send her away.
Track Name: Like We Do
All that time spent waiting for the other to come around, was it all time just spent wasted? Well I wonder, so I wander until I cannot be found. We will be fine after this. No eye to eye or middle of the road. We will be fine after this, but the only question now is where are we to go? Well, time rolls on like we do. Our friends all say, “what a shame.” But you can’t stop the rain when it comes. It wasn’t love and we were enough, but something broke that could not be fixed. We will be fine after this. No eye to eye or middle of the road. We will be fine after this, but the only question now is where are we to go? Well, time rolls on like we do.
Track Name: Little Bird
My little bird, my little bird. I’ll sing to thee. I’ll sing in summer’s time. My little bird, my little bird, the morning will come all in a sun’s good old time. While you are sleeping, I will keep singing your sweet melody because you knew a boy who at age ten just moved in. And come tomorrow, the year will turn over—18/19. You were just watching. You gave me wings I flew so high. I flew so high. My little bird, my little bird, I will keep on singing. Oh my little bird, my little bird.
Track Name: Minute 7
I was looking for the right thing to do. I wanted you to see a different side of me. I was looking for the perfect thing to do, but the moment passed. I was looking for the right thing to say. I wanted you to know that this and that was true. I was looking for the perfect to say, but the moment passed and now there ain’t no going back. No, I could never hurt you. I just wanted you to know that it killed me every time that I had to let you go. And if I died, and if I died today I’d still feel the same way, but the moment passed. I was looking for the right thing to say. I wanted you to know that here and now, I loved you in every way. And if I died, if I died today I’d still feel the same way but the moment passed. Now, there ain’t no going back.
