Track Name: I Should Be Born
I Should Be Born: Lyrics

Labels warning to use with permission
Look inside of me: conflicts, conditions
Don't lose sight of the lessons you're given
No sign or prescription can make you young again

All looks well if you just know the outside
Hide the tears that get shed in the nighttime
Don't lose sight of the map and the seasons
Let go of conditions that steal your mind away

Living on an island
Take your time when
Walking on the water
'Cause now we're running from our homes

One side of me knows where the path went
I could lead but I'm too inconsistent
Don't lose sight of the eyes that you're given
No conflicts, conditions can take your sight away

Living on an island
Take your time when
Walking on the water
'Cause now we're running from our homes
You were drowning when you should have flown
I've been dying when I should be born
I should be born

If you struggle in logic and feeling
Generational gaps are revealing
Don't lose sight of the ones who have loved you
You're only as strong as the love that built you
Track Name: Heading For Nowhere
Heading For Nowhere: Lyrics

I'm looking for something that I didn't notice was gone
Weeks, maybe months just went by without anything wrong
Now I'm aware I can't stop the repeating alarm
Here in this place I get peace, I get war, I get on

Standing at the station
Falling out of line
Missing my connection
Asking for the time

End at the beginning
Back onto the street
Always chasing something
Even in our sleep

(We got the time)
Heading for nowhere

I'm ready for something I finally noticed was gone
Head to the place where I go when I know what went wrong
Moments repeat, colors change to the beat of a song
Counting the days I get by and the days I get on

End at the beginning
Back onto the street
Always chasing something
Even in our sleep

(We got the time)
Heading for nowhere

Standing at the station
Looking at the map
Stopping for a moment
Just before the crash
Track Name: Weathervanes (In The Way)
Weathervanes (In the Way): Lyrics

Buildings scrape at the skyline
Cranes spin round like weathervanes
You and I shrug our shoulders
Who are we to complain

If we make this one thing
To replace that something
Don't it just stand up there
In the way

Easy ways to remember
You and I keep the pace
Photographs fall off magnets
Worn out pages using space

When we take this something
To escape that something
Don't it just end up there
In the way

If we make this one thing
To replace that something
Will it make that something
Meaningless

I remember the road and the destination
(Running down to the edge of the sea)
You said you'd look for all the places your love went

When we take this something
Rearrange that something
Don't it just stand up there
In the way

If we make this one thing
To replace that something
Don't it just stand up
In the way
Track Name: No Nations
No Nations: Lyrics

We're going to let you in this once
Let you right up to the front
We're going to spin you 'til you're spun
Then put you right back where you came from

In the season of the gun
We'll let you pull the trigger, son
You will see what you have done
Then put you right back where you came from

No nations
Trade places
Track Name: Sure Sign
Sure Sign: Lyrics

Contact with a friend
A long time but it's never quite the same
Tongue tied in my bed
Laid out for another way to mend

Sure sign
You shouldn't go

All night awake instead
Legs twitch as the beating wings unbend
Thoughts hide in hardened dens
Eyes wide as they surface seeking ends

Sure sign
You shouldn't go

Our love
It goes
Eyes closed
You know

Inside modern man
A bassline from a ceiling in my head
Sunrise, flaming red
It all stops but they never tell you when

Sure Sign
You should not go
Track Name: Time Will Remember
Time Will Remember: Lyrics

Deer in the headlights
And we walk in the clouds
Cold wars on hot nights
And we walk through the clouds

In the evening
Time will remember

Bird on the wind as
We walk through the crowd
Tree full of sadness
We're here on the ground

In the evening
(All's well)
Time will remember
Track Name: Fully Shed
Fully Shed: Lyrics

He gets mad when I get drunk
Walk around town like a loaded gun
But now I'm fully shed
And I'm back in bed

Highschool kids get stoned
Falling in and out of love
We were playing dead
We were upset

Ah, you should let me go just a little bit
I'm coming home in just a little bit

Standing at the edge of the things I've done
Push me off and wake the sun
Am I fully shed
Are we there yet?

Ah, you should let me go just a little bit
I'm coming home in just a little bit

I wanna know just a little bit
I'm gonna let in show and be done with it
Track Name: Always A First Time
Always A First Time: Lyrics

Leaving on the morning
Miles off from the shore
Feeling something started
But I never had enough

ooohhh

Swimming in a daydream
Spinning on the floor
You said you were waiting
While I'm still making nothing into
More and more and more

ooohhh

Take it easy on yourself
There is always a first time
Listen to yourself
There is always a first time
Track Name: It's A Funny Thing
It's A Funny Thing: Lyrics

It's a funny thing
When you lose your faith
In a grand design
Like a flickering
On a backlit screen
Shadowed thoughts arrive

Starlight
In the dead of night
Takes the towers down
Sure sign
That the plan devised
Came from nothing known

These nights fall through glass
Her eyes make the man

Trees lean
Over empty streets
As the power goes
No sign
Of a pearl inside
Deals a crushing blow

You realize
That the sunny side
Made the shadows cold
Pedals fold
Waiting for the rise
Of another sky

These nights fall through glass
Her eyes make the man
Said I won't look back

Starlight in the dead of night
Eyes wide in the dead of night

These nights fall through glass
Her eyes make the man
Said I won't look back
These eyes too will pass
Track Name: Tired Of The Comfort
Tired Of The Comfort: Lyrics

Are you tired
Of the comfort?
Killed by kindness
Small and modern

Danger in the sky
What a world have I?

Is the violence
Built for transport?
Are you tired
Of the comfort?

Danger in the signs
Danger in the lines
Danger in the minds
Wonder, wonder why
Danger in the sky

We buy them there
We buy them where
We buy them there
