Track Name: How Now
The summer's breaking
but never satisfied
by it's killing sunshine
how now it says, how now to stay?

Time's eating you all up inside
as you him claim another life
you realize there's too much pride
but how now you'll say, how now we pray

Can't forget about the ones you've saved
but don't get lost in your glory daze
where will they be without you
how now you'll say, how now today?

You've come this way
you might as well stay
can't resist this phase
bow to the day

but you've got so long to wait
Track Name: Not a Second to Lose
I've had enough of pride
and how it turns you on your side
don't waist your time with lies
if love is how you realize

There's not a second to lose
you're in luck if that's what you choose

As every day must go
you're left to ponder what you know
no endings left in sight
until you're swallowed by the light

There's not a second to lose
you're in luck if that's what you choose
Track Name: Sad or Happy
We live a fantasy, sad or happy are we
should my decision be to choose uncertainty?

Our doubts crave us, blame us, tame us, even save us
sureness aids us, pays us, even might betray us

Whatever thought I am, I belong here
it doesn't change the path of sad or happiness
Track Name: Amok Heart
Don't run amok with my heart
it's the only part I can't spare for you
push me away, tear me apart
don't run amok with my heart

Don't run amok with my soul
there's just one more goal for this life
you play me the fool with fingers of gold
don't run amok with my soul
Track Name: Everyone
Everyone speaks for themselves when they say it's all okay
under your skin lurks a color that stays

Every day, finding a new point of view estranges you
trying to know, questioning all you once knew
Track Name: Moon Signs
I look to you like the moon signs
I read your face like a novel
I treat myself like an object
will I ascend to your love?

It's just a circle they say
everything finds you again some day
it's hard to deny
when you find the circle must break

I never know how to feel
I can't despair in this lesson
life follows change with a blessing
and we're still right here
Track Name: Keep to Yourself
Keep to yourself
no one else
can't quite seem to find
peace of mind
please be kind and go
don't bother hiding
there isn't one place that's just your place
I'll keep on trying
to find that one place
maybe in your face
Track Name: Bicycling in the Pitch Dark
We speak in whispers of a taboo dream
her silent way and immaculate need
love has no questions for the answers you seek
all this congestion, does it fade with time?
will I be forever wanting a body close to mine?
cause there's what you know and there's what you believe
and I think never the two shall meet
Track Name: On Your Bedroom Floor
Keep singing songs to yourself
discovering all you need to know and more
on your bedroom floor

I don't know what to say about what's on my mind
I've pictures in my brain instead of lines full of type
and there's a soundscape in my mind
Track Name: Silverleaf
Dreams of silver leaves into a draining pool and I've got to leave right now but I don't know where paper thin legs spinning roots into the sea flies on her wall listening to my breeze as our eyes prepare to fly but they've nowhere to land.

Unplug your eyes the paper rose is trying to hide
we'll own the skies when all below becomes too dry

We're going to see the brother of sleep
