Track Name: Thousand Lives
Take three steps towards what I need
and get nowhere
Yet somehow I’d always believe
I’d get somewhere
And who knows if I’ll ever
get it right
So bottle up your hopes and dreams
keep them nearby

You’ve forgotten us
I know I’ll never blame ya
It fits into my narrative
that all I tried I can’t get through ya
So I’ll taste the will
Back to the edge and still
From coast to coast, anywhere
Got a thousand lives locked up somewhere

Take three steps towards what I need
and get nowhere
Yet somehow I’d always believe
I’d get somewhere
And who knows if I’ll ever
get it right
So bottle up your hopes and dreams
keep them nearby
Track Name: Avalanche
These squandered days
This relentless need
Twist into restless thoughts
Swear I won’t admit defeat
If I’ve got a plan
I’ll be sure to make it through

But that fury is alive
and that fighter has grown old
The days are filled with secrets
that I’ll still bury in the snow
But I’ve got a plan
so I’ll be sure to make it through

Let the warmth embrace my skull
Lift my grip and I will lose control
Fast track to nowhere fast
Stay out of the avalanche

The sun has yet to burn away
But my blood has turned to stone
I’ll be thinking of you
all the way home
My plan is out the window
How could I ever make it through?

Let the warmth embrace my skull
Lift my grip and I will lose control
Fast track to nowhere fast
Stay out of the avalanche

The sun has yet to burn away
But my blood has turned to stone
I’ll be thinking of you
all the way home
Track Name: Friends & Idols
Break out the window
from the foot of the bed
Scream past the trees
Just get out of this head
from the foot of my bed

All my friends are dead and married
maybe you should bury me
maybe you should bury me
All my idols they are dead and buried
I think you should bury me
I think you should bury me

Tonight feels heavy
Maybe I should go home
Tired of talking round in circles
I’m better off alone
so I think I should go home

I wanna kick down the doors
and scream from the top of my lungs
Yeah I wanna wake up
I’ll shake you til you wake up

All my friends are dead and married
maybe you should bury me
maybe you should bury me
All my idols they are dead and buried
I think you should bury me
But I won't let them bury me
Track Name: Sink
When the light streams in my window
it burns my eyes more than it should
and in case anyone comes by
I’ve locked the doors, rest assured

Yeah I’m going down
I’m sinking into
I’m sinking into the ground

Yeah I know all the rules
but I can’t help skipping stepping stones
If I could only control the language again
I’d make sense of all these unknowns

Well every day’s the same start
It’s cold, cold, cold water
But every night’s the same dreams
I always wake up screaming
It wants to take me back
Don’t let it take me back

But yeah I’m going down
I’m sinking into
I’m sinking into the ground
Track Name: Slow
I will clear out the living room
Drag all the furniture out
I'm gonna let all the teeth fall from my mouth

And I will strip all the bedsheets
and I will write all my lists
and when I thoughts drift away from me I will call them back in

And time will go
And time will go
and time will go so slow

The loud drips of the faucet
are ringing all through my ears
everything I fixed up only to reappear

But oh these other people they talk too much
I only wish I knew how
I’ve locked up all the words left to scream about

And time will go
And time will go
and time will go so slow

Well I’ve got all the books and the pages
to read all about
And I’ve written all my scripts, and my days
they’re all planned out now

But l still hate it
when that sun goes down
I still hate it
when that sun goes down
Track Name: Green
Too easy looking at everyone
Self doubt leaves me undone
Track Name: Smoke Signals
There’s bound to be a record on repeat
I guess that joke’s on me
If you’d be walking out that door
Walking out that door

And that couch that I still need
That cemetery across the street
What did I move out here for?
Move out here for

Well I am an ocean with the soul of the divine
But it all dries up for me this time
So when night rolls in
I’ll settle in
To sleep again

So you’ll hope for a clean break down
Smoke signals across town
Just hoping I’d soon forget
Soon forget

I’d rather burn this to the ground
Scatter ashes all around
And you’d be left for dead
left for dead

Well I am a river with the soul of the divine
But it all dries up this time
So when day breaks
I’ll awake and say that

You’ll always be alone
you’ll always be alone
