Track Name: At The Track
My heart dreams when I open my eyes
Blinded by invisible trials
My heart bleeds when I close my mind
Chased by hilarious lies
You’ve never placed a bigger bet
Now you’re lost at the track
Of your own device
You wage the weary choices
And people that you cling to
With stakes so high
As high as expectations fly
(They fly high, they fly high)
You can’t drop the pace now
Or call it off
You run for the finish line
Of the race that never stops…
You really ought to keep poised
Why just lash out meaning to?
Riding high on in betweens
Fly on expectations that dive
All of their voices
Ringing inside your head
And all those careful choices
Won’t make a safer bet
You can’t drop the pace now
Or call it off
You run for the finish line
Of the race that never stops…
Track Name: Talk 'Til Blue
You talk until i’m blue
I don’t know where to turn
To reach for air, to reach for truth
Even if I poured your soul
And made you pay
You’d still find a way to say
The things that sting, that crush
Walk upon tightropes here
May as well hang from them
While I wade waters wide
With knots slack and sly
Lose my way
Stuck in standby
Track Name: In The Woods We Sang
Let’s get you home
It’s about Midnight
You’ve had too much
Let me scrape you up (from the floor)
You’re the best friend
I could ask for
And now you’re out,
You’re out of your mind
And they’re coming to get us
(And we don’t care ‘cause we’re doing what we should)
And now you’re out,
And You’re drunk and blind
But they can’t find us
No, they won’t find us
Safe when we sing,
And we know that
There is no wrong in this
Floating around in the dead of night
And laugh ourselves to sleep
And laugh ourselves to…
And now you’re out,
You’re out of your mind
And they’re coming to get us
(And we don’t care 'cause we’re doing what we should)
And now you’re out,
And You’re drunk and blind
But they can’t find us
And they won’t know us when they do...
Track Name: The Hatch
Why you latch on tight to
Thoughts that you don’t like
Act and laugh in spite
With burning rage
With every stare you make
The further away it takes
The further away it takes you...
That smiling mask that kills you
Hiding what everybody should see,
Face the face that is you
Before the hatch opens...
Put myself on a plate
I’m all you can eat
You glare at me like I’m to blame
Though you can’t claim to take any other door
Than the one you bargained for
As it shuts in your shame
As it shuts in your shame...
That smiling mask that kills you
Hiding what everybody should see,
Face the face that is you
Before the hatch opens...
