Track Name: The Balance
Her eyes were cold and lonely to lie to
like black holes up there swallowing the sky
If I am right it was really for show like
her ears were shut but I was making her smile
Empty spaces like a story with age is
A message sent but as clear as it is...
Over time people find their dynamics
(Gaps are filled in with ironic ad-libs)
Taken apart from the moments we lived
(Taking a hold of impressionable kids)

It all works in balance
Finding peace in our minds
Who could judge if we were wrong
I'm controlling it all

I feel drunk walking around
Locking eyes with the world around me
Dinner party with a kid-napped daughter
And Poisoned wine from her father
And I can't lie, I felt weird
The solid ground can drift from here
Like building mountains and filling lakes
But I can't help I'm feeling brave!

It all works in balance
Finding peace in our minds
Who could judge if we were wrong
I'm controlling it all
Track Name: Give & Take
I have become more like a prince
Down on my throne, robe of Kashmir threads
He said he had a heart of gold
Most liars never told you so

Calm down

It's a battle of lights
And the sparks dance free
Let's play give and take
Just like your dreams

I met a girl, who loves to love
And I steal words that I'm not ashamed of
I fight a little everyday
She's playin' a funny game

It's a battle of lights
And the sparks dance free
Let's play give and take
Just like your dreams

Just like your dreams
Track Name: The Speed of Light
I believe in a dream of nirvana
I can see beyond me, a love supreme
Forest dweller, golden yeller, growin' older
I'm at home in this key, I don't wanna grow much older

They found the speed of light
Oh olden man, with your dreams in hand
Walk to the light of them golden plans

A treasury for the open mind
Sold the story off a million times

These are my good friends, keep my humble
I tend to start crazy shit, never nervous
A crazy dream I once had, lost in purpose
I believe in my words, come full-circle

They found the speed of light
Oh olden man, with your dreams in hand
Walk to the light of them golden plans

A treasury for the open mind
Sold the story off a million times
Track Name: Watermelon
(Ain't everyone like that)
I'm at the kitchen table
Forkin' out a fable
(He breathes 'cause he knows things)
She spelled it nicely
Breathe out the smoke rings

you know
I've gone back and forth from a hospital to a bar
Inmates can be shy
a toilet bowl and rain outside

Free from alterings
Free from alterings

Say watermelon and hope you're blessed then
Anyhting at all, something to show you're smart

Free from alterings
Free from alterings
Track Name: Cat English
Lookin for Sophie and on the way up
Angels in the outfield, Brother will tell ya what
Ringing on the outside, feelings on the inside
Cats can challenge me speaking pretty english
I'm guessing she's not up there
worries about nothing, doors left wide, wide left open
Good thing to say so it's about vibrations
Talkin bout the stove-top baking conversations

It's ups and downs
Are you around
It's ups and downs
scoring rounds
It's ups and downs
are you in town?
The volumes down
got it found
Reach back around
the dirts in the ground

Earn a good morning from familiar faces
Jumping from a dream into another
Found another channel that turns into places
Solid black window stretching my faith in
Talkin to Jesus to help her clean the kitchen
What if it worked, inclcuded reservations
Reach around the corner repeating conversations
Siren hormones shake it complicated

Lookin kinda anxious finding a way out
Gravity put us down here finisih in a graveyard
Sale on a picnic ants are artisitics
Marching on the line made by the mister man upstairs
taking his pictures yeah
We could all use plenty one-liners

Never thought of neighbors like myself
Never brought a plate to the kitchen shelf
Always there like sharing the soap
Peel back the layers and wash yourself
Track Name: Cuffed (Just in Time)
My body has an easier way to say
I'm too lazy
I'll stick with what I know
What can love show? It's amazing
I left it between the cracks
I knew traveling would bring it back
I feel into the halls, I think like Jack
Just like Jack

They showed it on the Flag
50 stars to bark at
Get it on the Blue Ridge
yeah, man's best friend
Set the ride on cruise control
10 for 10 how did you know that?
Out of gas and the Keys left the hand
Another Country Coach could yell back

You believed

Oh

Got hooked on phonics when I was 17
Spaghetti dinner, it was all a dream
North to Carolina, he made my phone ring...
Track Name: Florida Boredom
This Florida boredom's got the best of me
Pull a little bit harder on that sticky green
Double the limit driving in the thin night breeze
Let's drink to the moment before we cash the ecstasy

And in the warm night
No lights to hide the stars behind
I knew I'd call you
I knew it soon

And in our new love
Time ripped apart our teen-aged hearts
I counted three years
my dreams have stopped

Oh what they said about who we are now
Track Name: To the Stars
It didn't take long to notice a pattern
Night after night I'd wished that I had her

One through eighteen and I whisk (wished) to the stars
I'm goin', One timed belief that I catch with my arms

I feed off others
A lesson never taught by mother
and I call this learnin'
the lovin' will help with the workin'
and I thought of Florida
until I remembered just what the hell I left for
I'm straight where I'm standin'
got two of the same a woman can put her hand in

You'll learn what is right if you open your eyes
Tell a good lie with a confident smile

You don't know what's up unless you open your mouth
I'm sayin' one timed life can hold me over for now

I feed off others
a lesson never taught by mother
Was that Zeppelin
coming straight down a stairway to bring me to heaven?
I'm straight where I'm standin'
got two of the same a woman can put her hand in
Boy I'll tell ya that's all I need
with a heart so golden ain't nothin' gonna disappoint me
And they sing in harmony
but make no mistake there are still two melodies
Track Name: Lay Her Down
I'm in your meals
Every trade borrow or deal
Can I make you feel
Tame like veal

I'm here to stay
Just kneel and prey
I may go away
Give you the grace to deal with all this pain

Like, "Mollie, Don't Make Allusions."
Now to another one
The Marketplace
leads you through a palace
of goods to take
like shaped horse paste post-haste

That's to another one
Thanks to another one
Track Name: Words
We thought it was a good idea to research
Research the words
But found the fantasy goes nowhere
Just where I thought it would

A wreath of words
hung upside down
Just sounds smells and colors

More days to write my song
Listening in tune

We felt abandoned inside our barracks
Too tough to shoot
Just a shell inside a shaky hand
the hand that'd make it end

A wreath of words
hung upside down
Just sounds smells and colors

More words to write
Listening in tune
Track Name: Summer Regrets
Bullshit for a while just to have some fun
I lied and said that I was 21

I've been noticing summer getting interesting
How 'bout a walk again or better yet Summer Regrets

(You know what compatible means? If you made a move or not.)

Who said I had the time to make a promise with you
I can take it if you say it's my fault
But if you wanna call me out for all talk and no walk
Take a minute and remember who called

Bullshit for a while just to make it with you
Who said I had anything to do

I've been noticing summer getting interesting
How 'bout a walk again or better yet Summer Regrets

(Dad? I'm bushwacked, words are feeling. Dad? Yeah, I'm up here. Where are you?)

Good, look in my eyes for a couple more hours
Maybe then you can pick up a hint
But if something's gonna happen tonight it's you
Otherwise would you hop off my rig

Girl I'll keep you around for a weekend or two
Just to see what you're all about
But you're really not much fun can I tell you the truth
You cost money, get the fuck out my house
Track Name: Moon and the Sun
If you were right here, I'd sing you a song
Reflecting on scenes like the moon and the sun
If all that goes must end well
She'll follow you straight into Hell
Your bones are brittle and shatter in the light
She'll let you know just what she likes

Arguments sway'n in the love of affair
Just to find out how much she cares
Children are lost to a blinding game
Get it free'd it might charge in your way
Your mind gets lost in the passion of fight
She'll let you know how much she likes

Fallen for hearts, departed by sea
Landin' on shores far away from me
The only chance I had to make us one
Bitten by time, our lives were fun
Hot and bothered by the lives we lost
I'd follow you darling whatever the cost

I thought you wanted more sometimes
Check the list before you die
It's scary to think how much he's changed
A fairy-tale beneath your pencil frame
And he thinks it's all for gags
He paid no mind to those red flags
