Track Name: River _ Sing
I woke up to sing along to the river thats rising
I fucked up and lied about it then shouted this is the new me
One sad day, I will walk away
I’ll go back to my job where the rivers there waiting for me
singing to me “Go Home”
So I’ll go home to sing along to the river thats rising
One sad day I’ll go home to sing along
Track Name: Who Said
Who said, Lets all draw lots ?
We lie in bed all day and scream as our bodies rot

I can’t remember my last quiet thought
I lie in bed all day and scream as my body rots
“This whole town is going to Hell”

Oh look, a new billboard is up
now we know what we’re made of

What are those creatures that you’ve been hearing
are you still living in fear of whats on the next screen
come on lets talk, and walk. and digress our though

great expectations won’t help you see
great expectations won’t set you free
Track Name: You Said
After I learned, I turned and walked away
Knowing all paths lead to the same place
And I’ve been there before
Just like I’ve sung this song before
Then you said, “I never thought I’d feel this way.”

After I learned, I burned all of my things
And pushed the ash inside my veins to conceal all of the pain
But the pain grew, and the shame grew, then my hope turned away
Then you said, “I never thought I’d feel this way.”
Track Name: Our Lives
Don’t talk
Don’t open up

Breathe deeply, hold it in
We’ve heard this one before
We’ve heard this all before

Our lives all burnt up
Falling backwards, giving in
We’ve never felt this way before
Track Name: Daily Surrender
What’s that I’m doing with my hands again
Am I counting sheep or am I splitting at the seams
Daily surrender won't you oblige me please

Fond thoughts of candle lit walks through half remembered dreams
asleep amidst the trees. lying down and looking up to where they meet
daily surrender, won’t you oblige me please
Track Name: Some Place
Alone and walking home
Afraid of my own shadow
My feet drag on the ground
Do I still have a place to go?

We spoke in code just because, just for fun, just for love

Stoned and home alone
with no more chemicals to get
Rolling on the floor
past lives being reborn
Do I still have a place to go?

Alone again
Walking home again
Afraid of whats on my own street
All my things dragging behind me
Do I still have a place to go

We spoke in code just because, just for fun, just for love

Drunk on the town
Unashamed and unafraid
touching? or funny
whats the strangest thing your sheets have ever seen
oh well, I’m walking home again
Track Name: Black & Blue
Said I had a heart of gold
but you don’t make black gold dear
you don’t make black gold

Said I had the softest touch
but I will make you bruise dear
I will make you blue
Black and blue

So bury me deeply, so I can’t see a thing
so I can’t see anything I’m told I need or need to be
clean and care for me
remove the dirt form my lungs
mend and tend to me
piece me back how I belong
I belong

and I thought about the things I want to say but won’t
and I thought about the way you smiled when you woke
Track Name: Ballyhoo
I’m trying to view this from a gentle perspective
If you can right a wrong, then why would you neglect it
Track Name: River _ Rise
What’s a feeling?
What’s a dream?
why can’t I feel anything?
when the river rises, try and rise with it

Step into the water my friend
Swim down to the floor
When things get too dark and deep
just know I can’t pull you ashore
but when the river rises, try and rise with it

For 7 years, you sung this song
One sad day I will wash away
One sad day all I’ve known and loved will wash away
