Track Name: Lonely Towns
As the first drop falls
the whole sky starts coming down
the windshield fogs
looking glass drowns
the land scene sprawls
see no end to a wanderers plight
as the rain makes sound
on the passing grown

dreaming they could walk away
believing just cant keep them from the cold

feel the car crawl
as the world goes rushing by
think you've seen it all
through the eyes of the drivers side

seek the details, miss the meaning
the pictures bigger than what you're seeing

the lonely towns you're passing on the freeway
someones in there sleeping on their own
dreaming they could walk away
sleeping in a bed they made
believing just cant keep them from the cold
Track Name: Vessel
Alone on the ocean
Just to get pearls
you toss out the notion
there's no edge to the world

how deep is your weakness
for bright polished stones
collections for keeping
worth cracking your bones?

to sink or to swim but will greed keep your head straight

a sun shone on patience
like developing film
the details all rush in
but you're emptier still
if i'm just the vessel
then who's at the helm?

if i'm at the vessel then who's at the helm?
Track Name: In Betweens
Have I left the innocence of youth
Misplaced my trust in truths?
I dont feel the same
Was it you who took the abuse
even when i wanted to
now were nothing but some names

What have we but our bodies and dreams?
Our successes and failures and no in-betweens

Have i left the innocence of youth?
Through words that i misused
and theres nothing i can change
have i frightened off my muse
in this world i cant get used to
alone and rearranged

What have we but our bodies and dreams
Our successes and failures and no in-betweens

and all my fond memories of the years that i've turned in
get let go like wishes in the wind

oh howd it get so bad
like some storm
in my head
oh the fractures and cracks
and a cold abandoned bed

this isnt television

what have we but our bodies and dreams
our successes and failures and no inbetweens
and all my fond memories of the years that i've turned in
get let go like wishes in the wind
Track Name: Little Sister
Oh little sister of mine listen to your brother
you cant measure yourself on the scales of others
you've got plenty of time to find your place in everything
oh little sister of mine listen to your brother

The young will want it all
and the old will fear their call
but its those in the middle with everything to gain afterall

Oh little sister of mine listen to your mother
you cant worry yourself with the troubles of others
you've got plenty of time to find your place in everything
oh little sister of mine, with them, dont even bother

The young will want it all
and the old will fear their call
but its those in the middle with everything to gain afterall
Track Name: In My Sleep
I've been talkin in my sleep
i've been saying all those things i've been meaning to say
now were sleeping head to feet
and your toes dont care to hear me speak

You've got such big dreams down there
but theres no place for me
the whole worlds tangled in your hair
but theres no room for me

I've been searching in my sleep
i've been seeing all these things that i just cant face

i saw a tin can where the sun should be
saw the jar i keep my memories in break
and they all just blew away
Track Name: Youth's Bruise
You were stuck inside a dream that i was in
filled with moments passed, and things that had once been
you kept time with broken clocks and stubborn sand
reliving those old thoughts, time and time again

while i was stuck inside the person i had been
just uncertainties, and looking for an end
i kept time with broken clocks and stubborn sand
letting go is just loosening a hand

I know dumb mistakes dont have to stay that way
Its what you take away that can make them great

We were stuck inside a world that we had built
only certainties, a glass that never spilled
we had danced with wicked ghosts and crooked men
when the music started we were just the same to them

i know some mistakes wasnt all i made
we've all something to say but our tongues are frayed
we all just want to believe something can ease our earthly grief
we all know what we have seen, it just takes a crown to make the king
