Track Name: Not About Us
I'm calling you over every day
When I'm alone
For nothing has strayed you
From dirty lanes back to your home
Our god in his crown
Is judging us down

In pity and purchased heavenly sins
Buzzing around
I'm picking a frequency from within
Hammering on
My god is a sound
A pusher in town

I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it's not about us today

And I was tearing it up
In a new confusion
Sealing it off from inside
And as the barrier rose
It was quickly moving away
And back and behind
No one ever treats you right

I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it's not about us today
I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it's not about us
I know it's not about us

And you get to stay full time
And you get to be your kind
And you get to fit just fine
Enough for everyone to see you
When you're walking blind

I see you slipping away...
I see you slipping away...
Track Name: Whenever The Sun Comes
I can't even say it loud enough
the motion is real and terrible
aside of the broken promises
there's a window of light and glow

Why do you scare off animals
to the horizon, Emily?
and do you define your innocence
as a picture of fiery gold?

whenever the sun comes to rape me
whenever the sun comes
whenever the sun comes to rape me
whenever the sun comes

I'll have a quiet holiday
making assumptions endlessly
she wants to practice medicine
on the people who die the most

If I had to venture anyplace
never to see you anymore
would you allow me to retain
all the passion I've had for you before?

whenever the sun came to rape me
whenever the sun came
whenever the sun came to rape me
whenever the sun came
Track Name: Killing Light
I'll be following every step
you know this town in small enough
and we could meet by chance and gaze upon
the sidewalks that wouldn't open up for us

and I'm likely to spend my days
waiting in the house alone
my medicine in hand, I'll make up a lie
to make sure that I am comfortable apart

killing light could never seem to fix me,
but I've had enough to try my best to defy it
hand in hand, the never-ending story of your meaningless goodbyes
resolved in a worry, a candle in your eyes

simplicity at best is waiting for an entourage
it's only common sense to pick up a fight
she's a belly dancer swimming in the flood

and it's a hell of a lot to say,
I'm seeing through the camouflage,
and we should know by now how to survive
we're killing some, before we open up

killing light could never seem to fix me,
but I've had enough to try my best to defy it
hand in hand, the never-ending story of your meaningless goodbyes
resolved in a worry
Track Name: Secret Sea (Solo Acoustic)
Dark wet road
shining like a leather jacket
it takes me where I've been
a hundred times before
mark my words
take your hands out of your pockets
so many times you said
but I chose to ignore

fly me down
unveil the secret sea
I'm always on the hunt for things to be
fly me down
unveil the secret sea
I'm always on the hunt for things to be

off we go,
by the boat but never on it
the undercurrent seems
to pull me down below
and now you know
and god knows
I was being honest
to follow the heat
to wallow in the snow

fly me down
unveil the secret sea
I'm always on the hunt for things to be
Track Name: Kind Of Dance (Solo Acoustic)
My chemicals in balance
so chemistry has healed
spent most of the hour
waiting for the pill
the moon has closed the door
to be alone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

you don't have to fight
there's nothing there to win
you don't have to try
to follow anything
you don't have to belong to anyone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now there ain't no sound to calm you down
before you go to sleep
but hey I'll stretch the night away
to hear the trumpet's grief
as the pen-pal pauses while he's reaching out
for help behind the screen
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
it's all I've ever seen
(I've ever seen)

I've given up the fight
I'm waiting for the kill
whatever's left behind
was not remotely real
I'll meet you at the shore
and come along
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now time has stopped your hybrid heart
from beating for relief
and bravery prowls with beaming eyes
it's searching for the thief
in a corridor's half light a thousand miles
from any open room
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
I'll join you very soon
very soon

rest your weary mind and let me take the wheel
I'll get you home in time
I promise that I will
