Track Name: Drifting
I sleep in til who knows when
Throw the day away
Sever both the hands right off the clock
Where is my ambition?
I forgot my mission
Things to do, no time to lose
And I stop

The time that's mine is wasted on the couch
Because it's easier
You and I are headed down and out
We're drifting

Lacking motivation so I didn't write the words
To this verse
I had some other things to do today
I made a list and everything
But it works out this way every time

The time that's mine is wasted on the couch
Because it's easier
You and I are headed down and out
We're drifting

Maybe we're supposed to grow distant
Maybe I was made to grow cold
Predestined towards this indifference
It's old

The time that's mine is wasted on the couch
Because it's easier
You and I are headed down and out
We're drifting
Track Name: Wish They'd Be
She sets the desert scene
Wandering minds push shuffling feet
Lost somewhere in this in between
Dried out and cracking in the heat

Could things look like I wish they'd be?

Hey, at the end of the day
When the sun's fried my brain
And I lay my head down
But wait, I can hear myself speak
And my mind's running wild
Right out my ears and onto the ground

My outlook's overcast
I hear the sky crack open in the west
Hallucinating and I'm fading fast
Find the way home, forget this test

Could things look like I wish they'd be?

Hey, at the end of the day
When the sun's fried my brain
And I lay my head down
But wait, I can hear myself speak
And my mind's running wild
Right out my ears and onto the ground

Could things look like I wish they'd be?
Track Name: Quiet
She's all alone
A packed house
Disconnected from who she was before
She can't relate
The old way
Disenchanted by the way they're keeping score

We're all the same
Quiet!
Don't speak those thoughts that you have out loud
I'm not ashamed
Quiet!
You'll think like us or we will bring you down

She's walking out
A fast pace
Her feet will take her places she's never seen
She'll come back
Someday
When she can look past the things that will never be

We're all the same
Quiet!
Don't speak those thoughts that you have out loud
I'm not ashamed
Quiet!
You'll think like us or we will bring you down
Track Name: Took You With Me
There we were
Standing in the airport
Could we have known
Just what we were in for
You stared at me
With your eyes full of worry
We'll make this work
You said I'll take you with me
In everything I do

In the calm in the storm
You were there beside me
When I came off the tracks
I had you to guide me

Because I took you with me

The days were rough
I lived for the late night phone calls
We'd both fall asleep
Knowing it wouldn't be long
Til I was with you

In the calm in the storm
You were there beside me
When I came off the tracks
I had you to guide me

Because I took you with me

In the calm in the storm
You were there beside me
When I came off the tracks
I had you to guide me

Because I took you with me
Track Name: Walls
Two worlds collide and the time's come to choose
Will they embrace it or remain segregated
They only saw the difference
And started drafting blueprints
To keep them safe, to keep them separated
And they'd stay safe within their walls

If all we see are enemies
We never had a chance at all
And all I see surrounding me
Are fearful people building walls

She ran away from the close-minded ones
And without even trying became one herself
She tried to find others just like her
To live free from those who could not understand
And they'd stay safe within their walls

If all we see are enemies
We never had a chance at all
And all I see surrounding me
Are fearful people building walls
Track Name: Canyon
This is the sound
Of my walls all coming down
My last line of defense is crumbling
I'm breaking ground
In this hope this I have found
Looking up keeps me from stumbling

Still I know
I've got a long long way to go
But everybody's got to start somewhere
So I'll start here

I left my apprehensions at the canyon
That day we looked out from the edge
I never pictured my life would lead me here
I never want to forget

I left my apprehensions at the canyon
That day we looked out from the edge
I never pictured my life would lead me here
I never want to forget

Still I know
I've got a long long way to go
But everybody's got to start somewhere
So I'll start here
Track Name: Sleeptalk
3:14 in the morning
Staring straight up into nothing
You're rutching around again
Restless legs and restless minds
Find myself here every time
And then you start to speak
Not to me, not to anything

So please excuse me while I pull my hair out for weeks
I'm just trying to make sense of these things
You said in your sleep

Push aside the implications
That there's something out there waiting
That could make you more complete
Silent panic til the sun's up
Keep a straight face and play it cool
Try to do the best I can
To be anyone but who I am

So please excuse me while I pull my hair out for weeks
I'm just trying to make sense of these things
You said in your sleep

So please excuse me while I pull my hair out for weeks
I'm just trying to make sense of these things
You said in your sleep
Track Name: All of You
It's been a while since I've heard from anyone
What's been going on
Each of us has changed a lot since then
And sometimes friends move on
Six months ago we sat around the kitchen table
Rehashed the same old stories from back in high school

Well the time goes by
And I find myself in the same old place again
As the time goes by
I ask myself how all of this will end

I'm better off for knowing all of you
This means more to me than I could ever say
And I've done some things I still regret
But it's all made me who I am
And I'm better off for knowing all of you

It's been a while since I've heard from anyone
What's been going on
Have you noticed that our inside jokes
Don't make sense at all?
Six months ago we sat around and talked for hours
Remembered all the ways we drove our parents up the wall

Well the time goes by
And I find myself in the same old place again
As the time goes by
I ask myself how all of this will end

I'm better off for knowing all of you
This means more to me than I could ever say
And I've done some things I still regret
But it's all made me who I am
And I'm better off for knowing all of you

And I'm better off for knowing all of you
This means more to me than I could ever say
And I've done some things I still regret
But it's all made me who I am
And I'm better off for knowing all of you
Track Name: Windchimes
The garden's gone and time's gone by
But I can see you out there
Remember
And you could speak with just your eyes
If only I could read them
You're in there

When the rain comes down
I won't get off this porch swing
The storm rocks me in time
To the sound of the windchimes
When the earth shakes now
I won't run and hide
The tremors pulse in time
With the song of the windchimes

I see you in the chipping paint
The walnut tree and on that swing
You're still here
And I can see you in his face
He misses you with everything
Remember

When the rain comes down
I won't get off this porch swing
The storm rocks me in time
To the sound of the windchimes
When the earth shakes now
I won't run and hide
The tremors pulse in time
With the song of the windchimes

Is it safe to let go
Is it safe to let go
I feel you
I feel you
Is it safe to let go
Is it safe to let go
I hear you
I hear you

When the rain comes down
I won't get off this porch swing
The storm rocks me in time
To the sound of the windchimes
When the earth shakes now
I won't run and hide
The tremors pulse in time
With the song of the windchimes

Is it safe to let go
Is it safe to let go
I feel you
I feel you
Is it safe to let go
Is it safe to let go
I hear you
I hear you
