Track Name: Don't You Know
Wrap your brain in cellophane
Preserve the pathways, purge the pain
And find things you can trade or exchange
Tired of chasing ‘round your ghost
I left my home out for the coast
But everyone I met there was strange

So you go, you live and linger like you’ve got it made
Don’t you know, that sunshine’s only bound to turn to shade

Hit the road with a heavy load
I swore my ankles would explode
From carrying your ball and your chin
Raise your glass up for a toast
You bellow, bicker, brag and boast
‘Bout living on a life without rain

So you go, you live and linger like you’ve got it made
Don’t you know, that sunshine’s only bound to turn to shade

Left alone to free my bones
Talk to me in palindromes
Reflect upon a love transpired
A lifelong labor without pay
Never thought I’d see the day
When everything we stood upon
Is going up in fire

You listen hard, but you don’t hear
I got you in my rearview mirror
You disappear like trees along the road
I got lost in your arcade
A spiral circus, a thorn parade
A puzzle I can’t solve or decode

So you go, you live and linger like you’ve got it made
Don’t you know, that sunshine’s only bound to turn to shade
So you go, you live and linger like you’ve got it made
Don’t you know, that sunshine’s only bound to turn to shade
Track Name: Sorry
The future stands unclear
I wish you were right here
So I could tell you how I was so wrong
Guided by your smile
And blinded by your eyes
Crawling back to where I belong

I wish I could remedy all the things I can’t undo
I may fail and fumble, but I’ll never be untrue
And I know words ain’t worth their weight
Without some follow-through,
But still I’m stuck here hoping ‘sorry’
Can bring me back on home to you

Explored the empty space
Between your fire and grace
But I couldn't hold a light outside your star
Revolving 'round your glow
I wish you'd only know
There ain't a brighter stone than what you are

Oh, I know that words don’t carry their weight
Without some follow through, oh,
I’m stuck here hoping ‘sorry’ can bring me right back home to you,
Yes, I’m stuck here hoping ‘sorry’ can bring me back on home to you

I wish I could remedy all the things I can’t undo
I may fail and fumble, but I’ll never be untrue
And I know words ain’t worth their weight
Without some follow-through,
But still I’m stuck here hoping ‘sorry’
Can bring me back on home to you,
Yes I’m stuck here hoping sorry can bring me right back home to you
Track Name: Arsonist Blues
I've been searching, I've been searching a long time
Oh I've tried to feel a home down under my shoes
We've been drifting, we've been driving a long time
Freedom only finds you when there's nothing to lose

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone

I’ve been pushing, I’ve been pushing a long time
Trying to keep these empty days from dragging me down
We’ve been breaking, we’ve been breaking a long time
Oh, this wishing well has kept me under the ground

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone

Don’t come here crying when it all comes falling down
No use for flying when you’re tongue-tied to the ground
Sweet hesitation, sweet emancipation
No, you won’t see me crawling backwards

Skies are clear, they're dry as a bone
As the road becomes my home
I don't fear the great unknown
Oh, I'm used to being on my own
The ship has sailed, the bird has flown
No more future set in stone
And as the record's always shown
Oh, I'm probably better off alone
Track Name: Don't Believe It
Memories are nagging me again

Cleaning out my brain like turpentine

Epic tales of heroes hunting whales

And mortal souls made out to be divine



But I don't really believe it to be so

No I don't really believe it to be so

No I don't really believe it to be so, anymore



Omnipresent streams of other peoples' dreams

Fill my screens while I try to sleep at night

Promises you're better off as someone else

Promises that everything's all right



But I don't really believe it to be so

No I don't really believe it to be so

No I don't really believe it to be so, anymore


You're only worth the clothes draped on your back

You're only worth the dollar that you're working for

You're only worth the sunshine that you breathe

And not a moment more
Track Name: Piece of Your Love
When I woke up smiling, had to check my pulse and feel my face
A feeling entered that I can't erase
Chemicals compiling, doubt and fears of falling far from grace
Oh I'd disappear in you without a trace

I kept my distance for as long as I could
And I hope that you understood
I'm here confessing when the pushing comes to shove
That I want a piece of your love

In these foggy hours you appear obscure and strongly sweet
The ground is shrinking underneath my feet
And I wanna cut the anchor, watch the world sink slowly down
And breathe the empty air until we drown
And breathe the empty air until we drown

I was only searching for a little peace of mind
And I left you so far behind
But I had a feeling that I couldn't rise above
That I want a piece of your love
Oh I want a piece of your love

I kept my distance for as long as I could
And I hope that you understood
I'm here confessing when the pushing comes to shove
That I want a piece of your love
Oh I want a piece of your love
Track Name: Foot In The Door
Alone in this city
That's kept me down and out of range
I think the air I'm breathin's made me kind of strange
This peculiar point of view
Has got my mind all tangled in you
I guess perhaps it's just some desperate need of change

I don't even mind where you're going,
Or where you been before
I'm comin' at you blind and unknowing,
Oblivious, obscure
No I don't expect no miracles and I'm not stuck keeping score
I'm just hoping I got a foot in the door

And you move like a mystery,
A faint and fleeting masquerade,
Whatever blue you're feelin's surely bound to fade
Yes I'd call of all of my plans,
And gladly cave to all your demands,
Oh you could be my silver moonlight through the shade

I don't even mind where you going,
Or where you been before
I'm coming at you blind, and unknowing,
Oblivious, obscure.
No I don't expect no miracles and I'm not stuck keeping score,
I'm just hoping I got a foot in the door

So much time is ticking away
And I don't know how to stop and make it stay
Oh, won't you help me live it for today?
Oh, won't you help me live it for today?

I don't even mind where you're going,
Or where you been before
I'm comin' at you blind, and unknowing,
Oblivious obscure
No I don't expect no miracles and I'm not stuck keeping score
I'm just hoping I got a foot in the door
I'm just hoping I got a foot in the door
Track Name: Untangled
Counting hours one by one,
So long as you're having fun
While you're standing in line
Just waiting for your turn
I've forgotten my own name, was it loud or just mundane
Could you read it to me, is it easy to be learned

Won't you say it out loud?
Won't you say it out loud?
Won't you say it out loud?
Won't you say it out loud?
Say it out

This whole wide world got me tied down and strangled
I was stuck down in a hole, and I feel I was about to lose control
But you came down and got me untangled

Broken, beaten, tired, upset
And burnt like a cigarette
Was it lonely for you
Just waiting for your time?
Bending in and out of tune, and burst like a big balloon
Couldn't take anymore, no reason to the rhyme

I was chained to the floor
I was chained to the floor
I was chained to the floor
I was chained to the floor
Chained to the floor

This whole wide world got me tied down and strangled
I was stuck down in a hole, and I feel I was about to lose control
But you came down and got me untangled

My eyes were sore from staying conscious
Hands were paralyzed
My brain was brought back from its slumber
Salvaged from disguise

I was wearing down, I was wearing out,
I was wearing down beyond all doubt
Track Name: Such a Long Time Ago
The dust has long been settled since I buried all my charms
And I have seldom meddle in your affairs
I've long since excavated all the memories we've created
And I'm far removed from the art of splitting hairs

A footprint in the snow, a lover that I used to know
But that was such a long time ago

Sometimes my eyes hang heavy and my thoughts they drift astray
Your name can still monopolize my day
The stinging sound of silence it moves like thunder through my brain
The echoes of a world that's worn away

A footprint in the snow, a lover that I used to know
But that was such a long time ago
Track Name: Setting Sun
You bite the hands that are holding you
Sink your teeth down to the bone
Leading actor, skilled distractor from a broken world
As the inside goes unshown

When it's all said and done
And your terracotta army's on the run
No I won't get caught revolving 'round your setting sun

You hold a weight that's consuming you
Shoulders pushed down to the floor
Conscience rattles, winning battles with a painted smile
While you're doomed to lose the war

When it's all said and done
And your terracotta army's on the run
No I won't get caught revolving 'round your setting sun
