Track Name: All This Time We Wait
All this time we wait….It’s OK
All this time we wait….It’s OK

I see the sweat soak through her gown
We’re just bones
Unsatisfied and feeling low
Hearts aren’t always meant to break

Mow the lawn and my soul shakes
I scream to let it out
I always keep a little doubt

All this time we wait….It’s OK
All this time we wait….It’s OK
All this time we wait (X4)….It’s OK

The sun has set through the clouds
The night’s cold
Some love is cheap, some is bold
I can’t make amends with greed

The boardwalk is so damn clean
Where’s the dirty part of town?
All that’s left has got me down

All this time we wait….It’s OK
All this time we wait….It’s OK
All this time we wait (X4)….It’s OK
Track Name: Pale Monsters
Man on a stake
Man with the fire inside him
Rolling waves
And the things that swim below them

The monsters we make are our own
They’ve grown so bold

The dream fades
With just tones of knowing
We keep chase
There is wisdom in this madness

The monsters we make are our own
They’ve grown so bold

A ripped page
With some words across it
Rolling waves
Like the thoughts that flit through the soul

The monsters we make are our own
They’ve grown so bold
Diving beneath what I know
Colors and tones
Track Name: Everybody (Take What You Can Take)
When I was young my love
Was like a loaded gun
It shook me to my core
And left me on the floor

I gave up the knife
I’m so sick of time
It’s infuriating
But at least I tried.

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it lighter

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it right

A long winded sigh
A precedent to why
It could be for the taking
But is it yours or mine?

Everybody knows
This thing that I know
That the war is over
That the good guys lost

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it lighter

Every morning
Everybody
Shakes a little
Everybody
Tries to make it right

It's us and them
I am tired
They are liars
Take what you can take.
Track Name: Until the End
The air is warming
We all push the falling fence.

Waiting for the world
To make all of this make sense

A plastic smell and a red right hand
Twist and shout until the end

The ocean rises
A cool hand with a cooling touch

The ghosts and machines
Will all miss us all so much

A plastic smell and a red right hand
Twist and shout until the end
Track Name: The Dead
We dance in circles every year
The past invokes our wistful tears
Our time is filled with our routines
And I weigh if we can be free

The snow falls faintly like the
Descent of their last end
Upon all the living and the dead

On the stairs she was deep in thought
The distant music of her first love
In our room she started to cry
I’ve been a fool for my whole life

The snow falls faintly like the
Descent of their last end
Upon all the living and the dead

The Dead
Track Name: Buzzed Out
Our youth illuminates the shape that we’re in
Are you feeling alive or is the air getting thin?

Our cars ingratiate the need to move from within
You gotta drive so far before you really begin

Exploding now with sound
The whole world is buzzed out
Exploding now with
A sound so loud that whole world is buzzed out

Our hearts can penetrate through all the toxins
So we still have a chance with some artful dodging

Our stars impersonate how we’ll be what we’ve been
But it takes so long before we get to the end

Exploding now with sound
The whole world is buzzed out
Exploding now with
A sound so loud that whole world is buzzed out
Track Name: I Don't Really Wanna Care No More
I don’t really want to care no more
Black and blue you know I feel so sore.
But I’m not a broken man.
Feel some love and then I want some more.

I begin to see the light
I may never get it right
I try tonight.
I try tonight.

Tread too lightly and you lose the floor.
Agitated and you lose the Lord.
Are we really going where?
I can’t relax until you lock the door.

I begin to see the light
I may never get it right
I try tonight.
I try tonight.
Track Name: Fine
It’s a tender age to feel renewed
I’m trying not to see things through
So many things I can’t undo
The lapse of time is nothing new

And I’d say it’s all right

All this spin won’t twist me around
There’s no time to feel let down
It’s an all consuming sound
Running through this whole damn town

And I’d say it’s all right
Track Name: Gone
It’s all in your heart
It’s only just a spark
Push but not too far
Fear it will come apart

Dance the night away
Wishing it could stay
Your body shakes and shakes
As you anticipate

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know
One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.

Find the perfect home
It’s where you’ll want to go
When you’re all alone
Let your thoughts echo

Already gone too far
A fire not a spark
And when it falls apart
Remember what you are


Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know
One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.

Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know
Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know
Everyone and everything you ever thought you’d know
One day they’ll be gone and gone and gone and gone and gone and gone.
