Track Name: Dreaming
[Verse 1]
The storm of life
Fight or flight
It makes me nervous
So I learn to take my time
Beneath these waves
Try to elate
I'm here
But I don't know how

How do you keep the peace
Lord knows it can't be easy on you
Tangled up with me inside my head
Afraid to sleep
Cause the demons got me thinking I'm alive
When I know I must be dreaming
I know I must be

[Verse 2]
Gets hard to see
The world's bitter sweet
It's tastes like burning
The fire in my eye
Turn down this life
I'm far too high
My mind is floating now



Track Name: Would Have Known
[Verse 1]
When I was just a kid I got my heart ripped open
She got caught killing it gun still smoking
Well she took it to the neighbor and the neighbor had a stab
Turns out it wasn't the only one he'd ever had
Would have been a different story if my heart were just broken

[Chorus 1]
But she made sure I felt like an asshole
I guess she did it just right
It turns out I wasn't king of the castle
Would have done it all different if I'd known the hassle
But I guess I didn't know anything
Yea I guess I didn't know anything
I guess she did it right

[Verse 2]
Forward some years and I'm still a little classroom
Making mistakes roll it back and hit resume
Got that feeling where'd it go while the time just slips away
Every single day getting closer to the grave they say life's a bitch then you die or so it goes

[Chorus 2]
But she makes sure I feel like an asshole
I guess she did it just right
It turns out I'm not king of the castle
Would have done it all different if I'd known the hassle
But I guess I don't know anything
Yea I guess I don't know anything
I guess she did it right

(And if I'd've known)
I would of done it better
If I'd've known I could've got it right
If I'd've known it would be ok
If I'd've known it would be different
Cause she sure

[Chorus 2]
Track Name: Vessel
[Verse 1]
This vessel of mine and it's needs fears desires
How silly am I to think I had control
When you came to my side out of worry and of wonder
My mind was too wary thought you too scary

So suddenly my chimpanzee lizard brain reaction brought a crushing hand down and I'm so sorry that it happened but there's nothing I can do now but feel the pain you can't so I will
I'm sorry little Spiderbro still

[Verse 2]
This vessel of mine such anxious disposition
So quickly to judge and lay out decisions
It's enemies within but it's lashing out consistent
You should have known the danger
Couldn't keep yourself a stranger
This vessel of mine a jumbled bag of feelings
A dopamine junkie from the receptors I am wielding
And nothing must get in its way
And I'm sorry that you did that day


This vessel of mine
This vessel of mine a jumbled bag of feelings
A dopamine junkie from the receptors I am wielding
And nothing must get in its way

Track Name: Nothing Is Out of Control
[Verse 1]
Most people don't know or they just don't care
Their eyes are closed and they'll follow their shepherds anywhere

Tell me have we surrendered
Is it foretold or just remembered
Nothing, nothing is out of control

They like to be fooled and they'll be loving it
You don't mind the cold and you'll be shoved in it

[Verse 2]
Blue skies turn dark and you know it's not clouds
Your not sure why but you don't stop to point it out



When the wolves come marching to the beat
No hard feelings
No hard feelings
When the worms ground to join the feast
No hard feelings
No hard feelings

Track Name: The Indifference
[Verse 1]
Gotta love me a little patience
Makes you feel so insecure
Take it all back if I could now
If it would help
I'd take back all of my time
Maybe I'd be a Baker
Or a waiter
I'm sure that can all be arranged
But my persistence through this resistance
Watch me blow it all away

Oh my lord I cannot believe that I'm back here again
Scared of what the world has been imagining
It's not my friend
The indifference blows me away

[Verse 2]
Gotta fear me some inconsistence
They'll build you up
Then let you down
Take it all back to the beginning
When it was me
And you
And everything


(Oh, sorry)
Oh my lord
I cannot believe in

Track Name: Rain
[Verse 1]
The world feels like it's flooding
Life plays a game called sink or swim
And it just doesn't seem you control anything
Tangled and cut up by the rocks you didn't see
And I know that
The world should flow like a river
But sometimes it feels like we are surly damned
Some broken bones from that undertow
Mostly confused with the fact that we lived
And I swear

I've seen flowers that can bloom no matter how much rain they get

[Verse 2]
Some folks will tell you it's natural
Others afraid that it comes from mistakes
Know what that say about the weather these days
Most'll get pissed on while a few get real paid
But I swear

Track Name: Plant Matter
[Verse 1]
I'm gonna be my own destiny
Tear right out the ground
Tear right out the ground
I keep feeling like I'm growing
When will I reach the top?
Cause I can't wait to
Break through the soil
Reach out and greet the sun

Let me seed let me breathe let me think it off
Don't fret about me I'm coming up
Even though I may get tangled and toil
One of these days I'm gonna break through the soil

[Verse 2]
It always feels like night time
Only me inside my head
And how I want to live
Please bring back the rain again
And oh how sweet it feels
When the earth quakes the seed breaks the walls they start to give


And although the keys to life I hold
I'm still down on my own

Track Name: Don't Go
[Verse 1]
It was a short sharp shock at 3 O'clock in the morning
And you weren't there
Alcohol in the air and you were lost in the moment
They told me to calm down
Not to flip out
That it wouldn't help a thing
But I was too confused to use my rationality
Cause you were gone and things got scary
Oh my god just the thought of you
All alone in that big city

And I swore that
By hell or high water
I would return their daughter
To a home I hadn't made
And the thought that I might loose you
Well it tasted just like bile
And it made me ever certain
Made me know that I would find you

Cause I'll search the low road
I won't stop until I find you
Your the only way that I know home
So please don't go

[Verse 2]
My heart just stopped
Fell to the ground started screaming
It wasn't fair
My throat still full of pennies
From calling to thin air
And I wanted you back so bad it hurt my soul



I want to feel your weight in my arms
Hold on
Hold on a second

Track Name: Strung Out
Speak indirectly to you now

[Verse 1]
Open your eyes we're here
There is no need to panic anymore
This has happened all before
And you've made it
Welcome to your front door

[Pre-Chorus 1]
See you waiting for the world to set you free
Sitting at the bus stop
For what seems like centuries
Get up and walk down that street
Even when the voices come calling out your name
Do you feel like loneliness gave you the only path to take
(Down that street)

A satellite on a lowly orbit coming round the bend
I think I have seen it all before

[Verse 2]
Let strength take the place of fear
Your getting closer each and every year to that graduation day
So upon this thought we prey
On the weakness in our lives
And all those that would waste our time

[Pre-Chorus 2]
See you waiting on the world
Even when the voices come calling out your name

Do you feel your lost control
Stringing you up
Pulling out your ego's brash convictions
You're on trial but nobody's trying to hurt
You hear
Will you listen?
Or are you just a...


I've got my head out of sand
And my heart is on fire
Stand tall like the pilers that made me
The wind and the rain will conspire to take away land
So we must lend our hand to reach higher ground
The only way back is to climb through the Aether
We once were the child and source
Now none
I've herded the sun to expose what it's done
To a soul that's been reaped of desire
That's all but known by me
But I guess that's how it's supposed to be

[Pre-Chorus 3]
Even when the voices come calling out your name
Do you feel like


Even as it's all said and done
I'm looking towards a time when I may open up my eyes and watch it
All come home
All come home
Track Name: Touché
In their eyes
Human resources and candle light vigils
All byproducts of mans desires
Won't mean anything at all
Cosmic dance
And falling victims of it's circumstance
Hold lore before them and their God shale be forgiven
It won't mean anything at all

And the world that we captured in the photographs
Of the nights reminiscent of the dreams we had
Want to know so bad
But we'll never know
We'll never know
Touché it's all ok
Life's worth living in
It's ok you'll have more days life's worth living in
