Track Name: Mindrot
I won't let my mind rot
won't let my mind rot
in my skull

No obligations
no obligations
to old ways

I won't let my mind rot
won't let my mind rot
in my skull

No obligations
no obligations
to old ways

Lost 20 pounds (I left a gash)
Lost 20 pounds (Twelve-hundred miles wide)
Before sundown (Sea water, gloomy skies)
Before sundown (Phone calls, teary eyes dripped inside)
Track Name: Sodaspeak
Over my lips and straight through my teeth
They go straight to my head
Over my lips and straight through my teeth
They go straight to my head
They go straight to my head

Don't you leave me alone
Straight to my head and they leave me for dead
Don't you leave me alone
Don't you leave me alone
Track Name: Vanish
I'm going to vanish any day
It's not a question of if but of in what way

Over time or in the blink of an eye
You'll look for me and I'll be gone
Call out my name, oh, but in vain
I'm just floating near the Sun

I'm going to move on to greater things
Leave behind this world of suffering

Cross the finish line with my hands on my head
I'm going to miss you all so much
But what a trade, what a deal we've made
Oh, my body was such a crutch

I'm going to be buried six feet under ground
But I won't be without all the sights and sounds

I'll embody them and bless those alive
With unending joy and unending peace
Until that day, I'll be the one blessed
Until my pulsing, it does cease
Track Name: Spill My Drink
See "Home to Home"
Track Name: Porch
No amount of water can wash this dust away
But a little wouldn't hurt
And no amount of logic can make you want to stay
But I've got to give the effort

Ooo, we sit on our porch
Cursing the sky
Cursing the ground so cracked and dry
Praying for
Anything, anything more

It's funny how rainfall can bring such joy
And at other times suffering
A dynamic creation, there's always life
To experience in the rain

Ooo, we sit on our porch
Cursing the sky
Cursing the ground so cracked and dry
Praying for
Anything, anything more
Track Name: Lamptime
Your voice draws me
From my unconscious state of distant sleep
What a sweet release into this reality
Where you are is where my desires lead

Dew drops on the window
Blue, grey, and gold
Pastels cascade across the kitchen
Inside is warm, pour the coffee
'Cause outside is so cold
So cold

Hold the blankets tight
To shield my eyes from the steady stream of light
Now why would I fight for the night
Over the purest thing in my sight?

Dew drops on the window
Blue, grey, and gold
Pastels cascade across the kitchen
Inside is warm, pour the coffee
'Cause outside is so cold
So cold
Track Name: Vanishing
No lyrics here. Move along...
Track Name: Hurricane
You fall in love
Like rain falls to the ground
Expected and frequent
But only briefly endowed

Love like a hurricane
Except for a hand
It belongs to you
You call yourself a man

You take what you can
From every girl on which your raindrops land
Regret is incurable pain
And our hearts can't help but absorb the rain

Love like a hurricane
Except for a hand
It belongs to you
You call yourself a man
Track Name: Feverish
Enslaved and feverish, I'll take my time
Enslaved and feverish, I'll take what's mine
I don't know what's best for me, I'm slipping away
I don't know what's best for me, I know not what I say
Track Name: Home To Home
You won't be the one to spill my drink
You just need to drive me home
I shouldn't even be allowed to think
Won't you stay with me 'till I'm asleep
And spare me moments alone?

What conscience is there but a clear soul
To lay your head on at night?
The luxury is not one that I hold
Have you never had to win sleep in a fight,
Or do you awake to new light?

We can't grow down, it's too late now

Your life is never moved in or unpacked
There's no place you can call your own
All your life ahead with time spent looking back
Though it's just a shelter of wood and stone
Someday you'll come home to home

And could it be that all I really need
Is a yard to call my own?
To work and to tend in summer's stubborn heat
A place to sweat and work my fingers to bone
Honest, hard work with results to show

We can't grow down, it's too late now
Track Name: The Ring
The ring around the moon in the cold, black night
And the rings under my eyes the next day
The ring around her finger glimmers in the light
and it's the reason why I'm lying here awake

I have no idea why I act this way
You don't deserve it, nor do I
I have no idea why I am so afraid
And face each day with wincing eyes

Still the ring around the moon says a storm is coming soon
But I have no doubts for you and I to survive
Yet the ring around the moon sends a chill down my spine
And through rapid breathing, I admit that I'm alive

This fear I feel has no rationality
You don't deserve it, nor do I
I've tried, but I can't locate where it spawns from
It's simply embedded inside
It's the fear of living life
