Track Name: Childproof
Oh when did you fall off the edge?
When I only had my back turn for
Less than a few minutes
I planned to childproof you
Like the cap on happy pills
That make you see the world above
Like the world below

It’s a good idea to focus more on things
You know can be fixed

Oh I know it seems like
Like I’m not even trying
But I swear I am
Couldn't save myself
But there’s still time for
Time for you to

And don’t you let it get you down
There’s still work to be done here
And don’t you let it get you down
There’s still hope to be found here

If I climb to the top of this tree
And jumped off the top
Would this all
Stop?

no
Track Name: Wanting to Wake
I lay down on the ground
Breathe in oxygen
Hear the soft pitter patter
Of sticks on the carpeting

We march in the rain
We march in the heat we
Run in cold and talk the nights away

And sometimes it's enough that I can remember
The good stuff, like

Falling asleep
And wanting to wake
Falling asleep
And wanting to wake the next day

I close my eyes
lose track of the time
Feel the warmth of the black top
On my sore back

And sometimes it's enough that I can remember
The good stuff, like

Falling asleep
And wanting to wake
Falling asleep
And wanting to wake
Falling asleep
And wanting to wake
Falling asleep
And wanting to wake the next day
Track Name: Slowly Breaking
Maybe we could stay the same
Through all this change that only brings
Confusing philosophies
The simple complexity

And we’re barely getting by
Cause everybody is too
Busy branding pretty
For you and me

Can you tell me why we can’t all get along
Like before when no one was pretending
Can you tell me why we can’t all get along
Stop playing nice 'cause
I’m not buying it

Wish we could’ve stayed the same
Confusing philosophies are slowly
Breaking

Try so hard you don’t know why you
Try so hard you don’t know why it matters
Does it even matter?
The worth while things in life are just as
Tired as you are
Trying to hide the shame
The shame of being sane
Track Name: How Do I Love Thee
How do I love thee let me count the ways
I love you more than the Indy runway

The song bird sings
His plume to gloat
I’ll grab the freak
And wring his throat

La lalalala laaaa
La lalalala laalala

How do I love thee let me count the ways
I love you more than blackberries in May

We swing beneath
Blue skies and leaves
Forgetting all we use to be
Forgetting all we use to be
Track Name: Lonely Ones
Our eyes will turn back clear
Let your mind run over again
With hope our eyes will turn back

Lonely ones
And you controlling ones
Oh lonely ones
You controlling

Find a way out
Don’t give up
Don’t Fall away
Away or else

They’ll kick you around
They’ll kick you when you're
Down
They’ll kick you around town

And it wasn't always this way
It wasn't always
And if you say too much
It’ll all fall apart
We’ll be found out

Let your mind run over again
With hope our eyes will turn back

Lonely ones
And you controlling ones
Oh lonely ones
You controlling
Track Name: Death of a Salesman
T-t-t-tell me the story of your life
No tall tales, just the harsh cold lies
At first you stutter
Light turns to night, and you
Begin your chant

I apologize for all the wrongs I’ve made, but
I try and I try and I just can’t change
You never hear me when I’m speaking
You never let me finish what I’m saying
I have a life on the telephone lines
Please let me be

Time will find you
Time will find you

Should’ve left a long time ago
If only I had known
Should’ve left a long time ago
If only I had stood my own

Kids oh oh how they grow so fast
Kids oh oh how they grow so fast

Time waves and it’s gone
Track Name: Bruised Eared Boy
A bruised eared boy
And a bending girl
A bruised eared boy
And a bending girl

They traveled over mountains and hills
Seas and streams
Just to find who they’re meant to be
Lose past identities and maybe
Pull back the blinds that have
Blackened their lives


Live the dreams
That have never been told
Because of the fears
That we deeply hold

A bruised eared boy
Track Name: Pretending
Buckets full of laughter though there was nothing
Funny going on
And their sarcasm only thickened
As the night grew long

If you can live with it
Well then good for you
Though everyone I've met so far
Finds it awfully hard to do

You gave it all away and yet still managed
To keep her respect
And it was fine until you saw her
Following in your steps

Crush your pride stop pretending that everything’s alright
Cause people get hurt and people die
Nothing here’s your own
Not even your life
