Track Name: Passersby
You’re well nigh
Knowing a borrowed, brazen cry
Better hide
Lightly tried

Knowing eyes
Of passersby
Gaze into mine
We lightly tried
Track Name: Roller
It isn’t the way you’re cut-throat
It isn’t the thing that we became
I can’t break out from this screen
I haven’t reached the final plane

Give us the undiscovered
Give us the one we hardly can escape
I can’t remember
This is not what I meant to say
Not today
Lost in pain
What a shame

Honey, I’m a roller
Underneath the coals that hide me when it’s raining
How can you believe 
That everyone you meet is just here to entertain you?
But honey, you’ve been at my throat about it

It isn’t a thing I gave up
It’s only the way I understood
Some higher form of burden
That keeps me alive, in line with you

Give us the undiscovered
Give me someone I hardly can replace
And I’m pretending
That everything is still the same
Just to blame
Lost in pain
What a shame

Honey, I’m a roller
Underneath the coals that hide me when it’s raining
How can you believe 
That everyone you meet is just here to entertain you?
But honey, you’ve been at my throat about it

Please, you’ve got me hiding out
Please, you’ve got me hiding out
But I can’t quite seem to make a noise about it
Please, you’ve got me hiding out
Track Name: Searching For
Plastic leaves and whitened teeth
Are littering the floor
All these screens, the disparate themes
“What do you adore?”
The violet light that angles me
Composes my decor
Searching for a better way
Not to feel so torn

I’ve been tired searching for…

Tired wreaths, worn memories
And writing on the floor
Chelsea runs and asks of me
“What are these wrists for?”
The city kids were lost for weeks 
Pushed out the door
Searching for a better way
Not to feel so torn

I’ve been tired searching for…

She can’t remember when
She felt her own age
She didn’t need to live
On her own stage

Chelsea sits and begs of me
“Oh, what do I live for?”
I am now remembering
But always so unsure
Crazy man, he laughs at me
He’s pointing out the door
There’s nothing but transparent breeze
“What do you want more?”

I’ve been tired searching for…
Track Name: O'Connor's Barn
I left your diamonds in the parlor
Inside O’Connor’s Barn
You can’t remember why we came here
Or if we’re up to par
'Cause how can we have autonomy
If we can’t even leave?
But I don’t mean to sound obscene

Are you looking for an answer?
Are you looking for a cure?
Maybe you should want more

You wrote an index of our failures
Put it under your arm
He saw me sitting with another
And sleeping in my car
But how can we have autonomy 
If we can’t even leave?
No, I don’t mean to sound obscene

Are you looking for an answer?
Are you looking for a cure?
Maybe you should want more

Your eyelids have spoken now
Of the weight under your charm
And I begin to remember you
As soon as it begins to die
Track Name: Eliot St.
Send me the notes
I’ve been walking silently
Through the ghosts
Of what we’ve known
They only showed us
The sad signs of our start
Without the growth

It takes some time
Tinsel and ivy
Dear, my love
In another life
Beneath the mire
We’ll forfeit the words 
That we once sung
Into the fire…

Oh, I can’t sleep
I’m thinking all too much
Always shaking hands
And never showing up
And I’ve had no luck

I’m floored by all you are
And I can’t be there now
I’m sure that we may change
But are we prepared now?
For all we may be in the talking pool?
For all we may see as we act so cool?

Oh, I can’t sleep
I’m thinking all too much
Always shaking hands
And never showing up
And I’ve had no luck

Don’t be afraid
It’s only a death
I changed my name
I was seventeen
And why was it so hard to love you then?
When I heard you say within a dream

Oh, I can’t sleep
I’m thinking all too much
Always shaking hands
And never showing up
And I’ve had no luck

If you call this a second wind
If you call this flying love
I will catch you in the morning
In the valley of that word
Track Name: Hissing My Plea
Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea
Hang my suit up in the darkness
Got no more time left to believe

Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea
I feel the light inside the thunder below
It’s watching all these reasons I know

We’ve got an answer
Our main distraction
We’ve got an answer
That won’t keep us calm

Thrown away
Something keeps running away
It’s a thing that’s difficult to explain
So you’re drowning everything in your way
Thrown away
Meet me here later today
Another lonely face in the street
But you’re drowning everything in your way

Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea
Hang my suit up and I’m ready for more
Got no more time left to believe

We’ve got an answer
Our main distraction
We’ve got an answer
That won’t keep us calm

Something keeps running away
It’s a thing that’s difficult to explain
‘Cause we’re drowning everything in our way
Not today
The imitations of their complaints
Impersonating what we have tamed
And yet we’re drowning everything in our way

Willowy morning
Day is not dawning
They have me pleading tonight
They’ve got me hissing my plea
Ah, you’ve got me hissing my plea
Track Name: Something There
Open up your window, your windows are closed
There is something there, there is something there
Cast away your shadows, the shadows expose
There is something there, there is something there
There is something there

And it's something that ain’t always fair
And it's something that ain’t always fair

And if you are loving, she's loving
And if you are leaving, she's leaving 

Find a way to find me, your love is so close
There is something there, there is something there
Know a way to know me, your love is a ghost
There is something there, there is something there
There is something there

And it's something that ain’t always fair 
And it's something that ain’t always fair 

And if you are loving, she's loving
And if you are breathing, she's breathing
And if you are grieving, she's grieving
And if you are leaving, she's leaving
She's leaving, she's leaving, she's leaving
Track Name: Padova
Don’t be afraid of her gun, no
Don’t be tongue-tied in the cold
I was lost in confusion
Talked to myself so often

I’m in love with the main-change
It’s been that way ever since you were first slain
There’s a ghost now, in my soul
Trying so hard to play some rock & roll
The funny thing about this old town
You die so often since you first know how
Another day, another name you’ll take
Ain’t it funny how we make mistakes?

So don’t be afraid of her gun, no
Don’t be tongue-tied in the cold
I’ll be fine in confusion
I’ll talk to myself so often

And if I try hard to know you
How will I know that I know my own name?
And if I try hard to know you
(Will I go home now?)
How will I know that I know my own name?

Maybe we’ll meet in Padova… 
Track Name: Your Island
Somebody seaside 
Over the hill, your island
Somebody stand in towers
Approaching mine
Somebody double-visioned away their true loves
Somebody dictating holiness at primetime

Alas, they take it all back
Till their island starts to crack
Let the moment pass

Somebody wondered when you became so wordless
How many hours spent in your head tonight?
Somebody asking to make a bet on silence
Only to leave behind little towers in line

Alas, you left them intact
And your island starts to crack
Let the moment pass

Alas, I’d take it all back
When your island starts to crack
Let the moment pass
Track Name: Own Ways
My lover, my friend
Will I see you again?
I can’t understand
All the things you said in the morning

My tears, my tears
They are filled with you
I’m trying to stay true
But I cannot see it your way

How can we go on?
I don’t know
But I cannot see it your way
How can we go on?
I don’t know
But we’ll have to go our own ways

Don’t be afraid
It’s only an end
Which is only a saying
So begin tomorrow

My lover, my friend
Will I know you again?
I can’t understand
All the things we were in the doorway

These years, these years
They were filled with you
I’m trying to stay true
Although distance is such a strange thing

How can we go on?
I don’t know
But I cannot see it your way
How can we go on?
I don’t know
But we’ll have to go our own ways

Don’t be afraid
It’s only an end
Which is only a saying
So begin tomorrow

Don’t be afraid
It’s only a death
Which is only a saying
So begin tomorrow…
