Track Name: First Cut
Cunning are the blind ones
Channels for the rhyme
Visions of perfection
Between the lines

Weighters on my shoulders
Pennies in my mouth
I've borrowed from my good days
In a lonely house

Waiting on a misstep
Look to make my move
Waiting in the balance
For something to prove

With a tongue that sharp
I could cut you right out of my heart
With a mouth that smart
The first cut is the hardest part

Paint it in a picture
Cast it in blue light
Cut it from your matter
Let win the quitters win the fight

Sweeping up the silence
when the verbal war was done
Underneath the rug now
It's the art of running from

Waiting on a misstep
Look to make my move
Waiting in the balance
For something to prove

With a tongue that sharp
I could cut you right out of my heart
With a mouth that smart
Cut you down part by part

You're chasing dimes across the floor
Somehow they mean so much more
Can anybody know
Why we're nose to nose in the snow

With a tongue that sharp
I could cut you right out of my heart
With a mouth that smart
Cut you down part by part
Track Name: Fade
You've got a good mouth for talkin'
don't you?
When you want to make me care
for you

They always said I had good legs
for walkin'
But I just sit and stare
while you

Fade left fade right
Fade out completely
Without all this noise
I could sing so sweetly

You think your compliments
complete me
The way you dole them out
like currency

I've got all the goods I need
deep down
I've tuned my ear to hear every
little sound

Silence is the only noise
worth hearing
Between the notes so lonesome
and weary

Soak up the sound of the pin while its dropping
It's only heard when we stop all this talking

Fade left fade right
Fade out completely
Without all this noise
I could sing so sweetly
Track Name: Worry
It could all be so easy
Water rolling down the hill
Lets put our cards on the table
Find some shoes we can fill

You know you want to

If we put down our burdens
Drop our pennies in the well
We will get there right on time
Rest our bones for a spell

You know you want to

Don't say a prayer for what you don't want
Your worries they may never be
Chasing paper chasing songs
All along the same thing

Creature of comforts you're twisting
My arm back to what I know
Pack it up with the quickness now
These Seeds of change are
gonna grow

Little fire in my heart
The burn that just won't let me be
Take the picture behind my eyes
Already reality

You know you want to

Don't say a prayer for what you don't want
Your worries they may never be
Chasing paper chasing songs
All along the same thing

I want you alone where we belong
Track Name: Watery Dreams
Watery dreams and bicycle schemes
I ride on a wing and a wheel
Body is weak but the mind is keen
It only matters how I feel

This little bird is gonna fly fly fly
Fantastic fortunes in my pretty little eye
I pick you up and I dust off the ground
Buckets of beautiful to go around

Faces melt like a tired window pane
When we are older the light inside must reign
It's the years in between where we incubate our dreams
Wake up one morning and nothing's as it seems

Chorus

Don't you listen to a word I say
By my own volition I have gone astray
I burned the map and now I wander to my grave

Chorus
Track Name: Colors
Float on the River
Take it right to the sea
With every tide
My ship's coming closer to me

Golden circles
Round an emerald eye
All I'm hearing from you
How high honey pie

Rose colored glasses
Turned from dark ebony
Now it's all washed away
Don't you know that nothing's for free

Grey grey day
There's a flood on the floor
They're all crying like dogs
They can't see in color no more

We found a new room with a view
All of the colors there
Have a different hue

Golden circles
Round an emerald eye
All I'm hearing from you
How high honey pie
How high
How high honey pie

We found a new room with a view
All of the colors there
Have a different hue

How high
How high

We found a new room with a view
All of the colors there
Have a different hue
Track Name: Further
Further down the road I guess we'll go
Further down the road I guess we'll go
Too fast too slow better not to know

Everyone we meet passing through
Everyone we meet just passing through
I guess we always knew we were walking in solitude

Nobody's gonna hold my hand
Holding hands is like holding sand

Growing up it feels like giving in
Growing up it feels like giving in
You can't run from the skin you were meant to be living in

Nobody's gonna hold my hand
Holding hands is like holding sand

Further down the road I guess we'll go
