Track Name: Dots Not Feathers
Dots Not Feathers
Grow out grow up root yourself to stand alone
Swings sweep the tops of the green grass and the squeak back
And forth until each last wind blows
Show out show up heave your needs to feed the fires
We dug deep and cold where the winds wont blow
Our feet from beneath
We gravitate in a solid state
And its was mind blowing when she started showing
Our mistakes turned out beautifully
In black and white shaded grey
The new lies and the spies on the holidays

The roads we leave behind
Who knows we leave behind

Blow out lights out the ways in which we lost our names
Feel free return the flyers and the girls for higher
Now we justify just how his hands our shaped
And it was mind blowing when she started showing
Our mistakes turned out beautifully
In black and white shaded grey
The new lies and the spies on the holidays

The roads we leave behind
Who knows we leave behind

So should I keep asking questions
Just to keep the conversation
Light and mild just a little bit watered down
And I quite like the speaking parts
But you will never get me to sing out loud
So grow up and grow out
I’m looking for any port in the storm
I’m looking for any port in the storm

Just hold your hands up high so they can reach us through the waves
The quick sand sinks that’s how we’ll spend our days
I quite like the speaking parts
But you will never get me to sing out loud
So grow up and grow out

I’m looking for any port in the storm
I’m looking for any port in the storm
Track Name: Rituals
Rituals


All of the rituals working out fine
Holding their own this happens from time to time
Lets just hold all our honor alone
Guess we grow wild where wild eyes roam

Hamster eyes peeking across through the pines
Stand on their tippy tippy toes look whats mine mine mine
Lets just hold all our honor alone
I guess we grow wild where wild eyes roam

All of the children hiding with the guns
We speak a little faster then normal
Children hiding with their guns
We speak a little rasher then normal

Just feed them to the monsters and watch their decent slow
Feed them to the monsters and hold all the chords
Just feed them to the monsters and watch their decent
Slow down
Track Name: Last Requests Part 1
Last Requests Part 1

You can’t, you can’t
Hold these debts alone
You can’t, you can’t
Rosary left in loan
And you can’t
Pray for me out loud
With a voice as soft as a mouse

Please don’t speak in the morning I’ve got a mind
That tosses its dreams away
But here in my brain where my thoughts work the same
I can hold them in place without speaking out loud
Without thinking through the clouds
But you blow them in place and you fill them with rain
Till it pours

I woke up early on a Saturday and laid waiting for the sun
But it never came, so I climbed to the rooftops
I took both my shoes off and laid in the snow
With the fear in my toes, with the morning I froze
It was all I could take cause I needed a break in the
Cold, in the cold
Just wait for me there and you’ll meet me
Halfway, cause the suns coming back
And you can’t, and you can’t
Hold these debts alone
Track Name: Mate In Style
Mate In Style

We finally made it back, it’s been a while
And I tried to stay cool but all along the only in was out
And we’re chilled to the bones now
Who knew that the sun lines hiding on a tan side
Could be more pleasantly beautiful
Then the strong mans hide
Poise
Poise
Who’s hiding their second snack
Like child’s play we creep and sneak around
Watching the hours pass without making a sound
So speak softly it peaks awfully
And it swallows itself in pride
Because now were alive, and somehow we’re a lie
Poise
Poise

Mate in style draw simple lines on the girls he stalks
Where water cats and chairs fly
Mate in style draw simple lines on the girls he stalks
Where water cats and chairs fly
Brace for the accidents needs all the time
Case less and helpless with a mean show
Brace for the accidents needs all the time
Trace with me, stay with me, follow me home

We finally made it back lets take the day and photograph our lives
Always watching the prize that’s in our eyes
Just speak softly it peaks awfully and it swallows itself in pride
Because now we’re alive, yet somehow we’re a lie

And I wish you could see that I don’t want a take back
But I’m so afraid that I don’t think I’ll ever shake that
Track Name: Lions To Lightning
Lions to Lightning
Make, such a sudden smile
Hold me I float
Take such an ugly while
Hold me I gloat
Crave like the southern fires
The southern fires but you know I wont
Wait with a sudden smile,
A sudden lion crawls with lightning roars
Track Name: Last Requests Part 2
Last Requests Part 2
And you can’t hold these debts alone
And you can’t rosary left in loan
And you can’t pray for me out loud
With a voice as soft as a mouse

Well I’ve got the time if you’ve got the shade
Cause I can get a bit to steamy when you get so afraid
Because the sun it keeps me burning when you cover me up
And cool me down
Like the winter winds that chill us both back to the underground
Our roots run so deep but they trap us where we’ll never find a breeze alone
The deck chairs are sliding until their all out of place
And the waves we’re deciding they would fill the empty space that
Used to feel so warm and loving now it covers me up and cools me down
We feed from one excitement but theirs hardly enough to go around
We feed from one excitement but theirs hardly enough to go around
And you can’t dive head first in shallow water
Eyes closed waiting for the let down

All out of time just to ask who we are ask who we are
Never asking ourselves
Were all out of time just to ask who we are
Ask who we are never asking ourselves
So dance through the floors
Shake the windows and walls if you loose won’t we all
So dance through the floors
Shake the windows and walls if you loose wont we all
Track Name: For Better Or Worse
For Better Or Worse
He said I’ve left all my gold in a place that’s just to far away as far as I could go before I’d never return
For better or for worse
There you’ll find the wealth I’ve known it kept me warm it kept me dry but I know it won’t keep anyone alive and now I’m to ashamed to say its mine so now its yours
For better or for worse

Teasing child with swollen eyes and a face that’s hard to recognize it used to smile a lot like mine and it used to smile a lot like yours
I’ve lived for quite a while thinking time moved slow but now your out of breath and through the lights I known that you will never return for better or for worse

He said I’ve left all my gold in a place that’s just to far away as far as I could go before I’d never return for better or for worse
If this makes it back to heaven will it line it’s walls with all my greed with all my soul while the angels watch with envy of me and the love I have earned

But mother don’t cry your eyes out drowning all Los Angeles just wait for a drought because you still have good to give the world you still have good to give the world you left behind
And father don’t strike the earth with all your pain with all your words with all you’ve gained with all your worth
Your still a better man then I your still a better man then I could have ever been dead or alive

Now love who sees you cold in a place that I will never know, will never see again
Will you forget me over time because now I’m taking mine
When this makes it back to heaven will it line its walls with all my greed with all my soul will you keep them from the ending they’d see
That I could never return for better or for worse

Please nowhere near my mother’s eyes, nowhere near my father’s pride
Nowhere near my wife and child, please leave them be just let them smile
Don’t drown the earth, don’t shake the ground, don’t show my worth and let them down
Just let them forget me over time

And he said I’ve left all my gold in a place that’s just to far away as far as I could go before I’d never return
For Better Or For Worse
Track Name: Hef
Hef
You laugh like a first timer as your voice takes you by surprise
And I could see it in disguise
Hold your hands to the light
While the shadows we fight dance un-recognized form
Past the blinds
And all these pictures of scripture that cover these walls
They be-little me be-little me to the point I may stall
Like a child I fear nothing without a clue of the worst ways
To fall on my own I just do what I’m shown all the time

You go back and un-tie her yes there are
Some that will never let go because you never say no
Uno, dos, tres in the night never out of your sight
Do you sit back or reel in the bite
And all these lectures expecters that fill out these halls
They encourage me encourage me the point I may stall
Like a child I fear nothing without a clue of the worst ways
To fall on my own I just do what I’m shown all the time

You were Hef for a while now your quiet afternoons
Seem un-comfortably structured with no room to move
For no reason at all you forgot how to crawl
Like a child with a happy smile
And you were Hef for a while now your quiet afternoons
Seem uncomfortably structured with no room to move
For no reason at all you forgot how to crawl like a child
With a happy smile
Track Name: Bounce Around The Walls
Bounce Around The Walls

Remember when we caught faces in the windows
And bodies in the walls remember its all just for you
Remember its all just for you
Remember when we thought that night was night and day was day
That anything we wished away
Would disappear and never bother us again
Would disappear

Remember when we caught fishing lines from outerspace
Waiting for a bite we nibbled away but not tonight
We nibbled away
So bounce around the room hit every corner every wall
Hit every inch before we all hold you down
Before we all hold you down

Its so far off so just lie down below
Its so far off so just lie down below

Because all the ways we disagree at least its never boring
All the ways we could agree at least its never boring

Remember when we caught faces in limbo
And bodies in the walls
Remember their all so confused

So bounce around the room hit every corner every wall
Hit every inch before he calls and holds you down
Before he calls
It’s so far off so lay down below
It’s so far off so lay down below

All the ways we disagree at least it’s never boring
All the ways we could agree at least it’s never boring
Track Name: The Seeds Or The Weeds
The Seeds Or The Weeds

The seeds once told me all we need to grow
Are tiny souls, tiny souls
Just spread some water around your ugly needs
And wait a while for, wait a while for
Happiness you’ve never know
Your happiness is never to far away

The weeds last told me the seeds we’re the ones
We try to ignore, it’s advice you hope for
They spread their lies to all sad me they meet
And hope they can’t tell
They’ll hope you can’t tell their
Happiness is all their own
Their happiness they’ll never just give away
