Track Name: Smooth
Gold ran the autumn sky
and often we would fly
above
arms out on the freezing sun
Our jackets held us warm
as dancing leaves would form
walls
we'd take each others hands and we would run

Goodbyes and see you soons
most every afternoon
made
The lonely nights a bit easier to take
You took a downward bend
night swung you back again
learn
it takes a lot to watch a person break

Those lakes of ours drying up
even though we kept trying, trying
Smooth hands that I'd been stripped of
I knew the ground till I was flying, flying

Every inch that we grew
And everything that we'd do
planted seeds
throughout the weeds
And when It reached the sky
it was a mile high
And I'll always know
There’s ground below
Track Name: Windrag
No flight tonight on Red-Set Airline
although the flights were meant to be
There was an accident
all of the meanings bent
And the 45 crashed into the sea

Red alert below the hurt will go
If you let it inside you don’t survive
Let the station captain know
That the pilot's still alive

I used to listen till the morning
then crash-landing came without warning
I really tried my best,
but the trip was put to rest
Can't sleep now the birds are chirping

Red alert below the hurt will go
If you let it inside you don’t survive
Let the station captain know
That the pilot's still alive
Track Name: Runaway
You keep your distance that's for sure
You led me to believe you're an open door
But when I reached for your handle I learned otherwise
You handed fiction out in paperback
Eight hundred pages
Lined from the top to the bottom with the words come here

When I'm nice you’re disinterested
When I’m an asshole you're offended
You’re a lure with no prize
A chase with no catch
You're perfect
Runaway
Though I'm never gonna lock you down
You're always gonna be around
If I follow slow
You’ll wait up for me
You're to blame
Runaway

There’s a problem with your temperature
I did my best
I tried my best
To warm you down
But you froze my thermometer
Your time is a magical thing
Like this curse that you put on me
If you aren’t willing to give me yours
Why should I waste mine

When I'm nice you’re disinterested
When I’m an asshole you're offended
You’re a lure with no prize
A chase with no catch
You're perfect
Runaway
Though I'm never gonna lock you down
You're always gonna be around
If I follow slow
You’ll wait up for me
You're to blame
Runaway

If my mind could turn back time
I'd find myself and warn him that
You're perfect
Runaway
Girl some day
I'll find a way
To break away
From your luring eyes
You’re to blame
Runaway
Track Name: Mindsight
Return to your houses
Over the Eastern waters
Sun shines over roses alone
For the flow
They see you waiting for the show

Are you coming back okay?

I wander around
Seeing faces that I know are
Unfamiliar

To others in hiding
Guess through the lens
Mystery is festering all around
It can change for you

I don’t want the responsibility
Confine the means to it’s cage
For the love
Life was soaring above

Are you coming back okay?

I wander around
Seeing places that I know are
Unfamiliar

To others who help me
Try to begin
Destiny can capture me like a fly
It can change for us
Track Name: Ms. Led
Afternoon, Ms. Led
Why are your eyes so red
Something need be said
Or pretty soon you’re dead

That spiteful love you adore
Won’t be taken anymore
Get your feet on the floor
Just three a day you won’t get sore

Alone and dull
You needed Therapy
I gave you all
You wanted more from me

I want to call
And listen to memories
Alone and dull
You lived my hell for me
Track Name: Trust Flower
Sara was a girl who liked open doors
Chemicals wash on guilty shores
She knows that locks are frequent like your
Toaster crumbs

Staring games won’t freak her out
took this book and read about
how all you need in life is satisfaction

Asked for kindness, still it rained
Asked for mercy, still it pained
Wonder if she’ll ever learn
Wonder if she’ll ever think to

Pick the flowers from the tree
Doesn’t she know she isn’t safe with me
Silent hours
They relax us

Mirror glass is getting dull
Doesn't know she’s beautiful
Don’t lean into her she will contract

Asked for kindness, still it rained
Asked for mercy, still it pained
Wonder if she’ll ever learn
Wonder if she’ll ever think to
Track Name: The Diverge
It’s alright don’t worry
We’ll find other nests to share our
Conversation
And hold on meaning
Far beyond what we have seen
Or what we will experience
Our days aren't running
Our age is gone.
Track Name: Curl
Will it give me injury
Just try it
Can I tell a lie to you
Just buy it
Are you coming on to me
Deny it
When I turn the master key
You’re higher than a star

Don’t let life escape your gaze
gotta read the signs
Capere Boni Temporum
Grasp the good times

Even in the worst of times
as hard as it can be
Vide Humanitas
See humanity

Will it give me injury
Just try it
Can I tell a lie to you
Just buy it
Are you coming on to me
Deny it
When I turn the master key
You’re higher than a star

Keeping tight grasp on your raspy past
can get you feeling low
Illud Dimittis
Let it go

Don’t be blind and confine your mind
To what you can see
Statuam Te Liberum
Set yourself free

Will it give me injury
Just try it
Can I tell a lie to you
Just buy it
Are you coming on to me
Deny it
When I turn the master key
You’re higher than a star
