Balance 02:55
Something today knocked down all my paltry weight It seems that I can’t ever get the balance right Was hoping to stay comfortably in seasoned ways But I’ll have to wait for gentler thoughts to arise Along that glacier creek you’ll say the things you can’t really mean Your lines are weak in vapid scenes and it’s too much for me Oh what a big thing To dismiss so easily Something you said kept rattling all through my head The scheme to justify all your living pride To throw it away before the skies had shown all yet Though I know it feels we’re undersea all of the time Oh what a big thing To dismiss so easily Cause I get addicted To something so out of reach Something that I was slipping underneath my tongue To see what from the depths I could shine a light And know all the hubris of the thoughts that’ll never come There’s still some parts of me that need to die I got addicted To something so out of reach Cause oh what a big thing To dismiss so easily

I was scouring the fields searching for a home The clouds were screening the anemic sun I felt alone But I thought I could endure what’s to come Cold sweat was pouring down my head and hands I thought every little thing mattered then I carried that weight And the truth had beamed right in front of me then I was hoping for a better story But we’re separating only further it seems that we’re Distant peaks We’re distant peaks I learned the patterns and I learned revenge The last few months had been so poorly spent Mind in a cage Now I bet they’ve no idea what’s coming for them After years of silence I laid under trains The joy of being unhurt made me stay I’ll find my way And maybe I’ll see you down at the gates I was hoping for a better story But we’re separating only further it seems that we’re Distant peaks We’re distant peaks

No Patience 03:50
We were happy drunken around London And high in California pines Watched the sun rise over the harbor While a distant storm began to rise The day you came I wasn’t myself Still dreaming of the golden sea Til you report the torrid weather I’ll block it out so wilfully If things fall apart one day you’ll be so sad Communicate I’ve got no patience for that Drove on through the endless Midwest And all grew friendly for a while Still I’ll recall the hidden revolver But I’d rather just paste on a smile Dangling above the cold pool water I’ve been here since the break of day Til night sweeps up my body inward And all the wells are drawn away If things fall apart one day you’ll be so sad Communicate I’ve got no patience for that I know just what could make this better I know just what could make this better

Dry Out 02:48
It's been a week since New York where I drowned in a haze And we've started counting the miles left to go I think we already know Been nights of staring into black until black became gray Riding on that ferry off the coast Yeah I already know So I'll take the month to dry out or maybe for the long haul To find out that the worst part is knowing my part in it all We're twisting words on the roads that wind on the front range Got me counting the days til we're home But we're nowhere close If I could shed off the pride then I'd ask you to stay But that gut of the glacier is still cold I suppose I'll take the month to dry out or maybe for the long haul To find out that the worst part is knowing my part in it all It's been a week since the farm and that midwestern sky And the days drag on so slow Cause we already know So I'll start swimming to shore and throw out the charade just let the seas recycle and regrow it's what I needed the most

Cycles 03:00
Both of standing down times square Some resentment in the air I can’t take that you walk so slow I’m always in a hurry, for what I don’t know And i know just exactly who I remind you of Both of us know there’s cycles to break Some pretending in the way Though we both sense the astral plane I’ve only got platitudes to say And you still need to numb and medicate Both of us have got advice to give Some delusions in it Though we both followed all the steps Where all our peace of mind was spent The water will keep on circling I guess But I will show up when you call You’re still my blood after all I will show up when you call You’re still my blood after all
