Track Name: Top Ten Reasons
There goes another piece of me
falling out on the road
pieces that have lived on me
weighing a heavy load

Feeling like a butterfly
remembering where he stayed
things are just as I recall them
am I all that's changed?

Go on and make yourself useful
Instead of tearing me down
you are so disconnected
you are taking the crown

All I want is to see his shape
but I see no beauty through this dreadful crowd
I want to follow in a different way
where a few less fakers are allowed
and the strange convictions are a little less loud

Placing your post, you make your case
for the insiders of the inside
tunnel-vision cleverness will only end your ride

Make yourself useful
instead of splitting the town
you are so disconnected
you are bringing us down
you are bringing us down

All I want is to see his shape
but I see no beauty through this dreadful crowd
I want to follow in a different way
where a few less fakers are allowed
and the strange convictions are a little less loud

I am on your side
but I'm not satisfied
I am on your side
start slowing down your stride

I know that our opinions place
you and I as one
that kind of man, too critical
is old and overdone

but the thing that sets us apart
and places me on the wire
I will not contain the infinite
to fit within my desire.
Track Name: B.O.Z.O.
There was a different expectation
back when my feet were off the floor
wouldn't waste time to build foundation
while we were just waiting for the door

did you read the letters on my sweater?
cause I never reckoned what it says

Way too many people say
that I'm here till I sail away
Once we get that sweet relief
then I will leave you to your grief

It may just be too devastating
to look in the eyes around the town
I need to see it to believe you
that you are trying to stick around

Way too many people say
that I'm here till I sail away
Once we get that sweet relief
then I will leave you to your grief

It is magnificently branding
the perfect excuse to hide our haunch
now we can breed misunderstanding
with less than a few words if we want

but now is the time to plant your feet
now is the time to go out dancing in the street!

Way too many people say
that I'm here till I sail away
Once we get that sweet relief
then I will leave you to your grief
Track Name: So It Seems
You are the prettiest person
you are the loveliest soul
and from the second I saw you
I didn't want control

I often try to lay it out
and look how it all began
a person with pieces of angel
loving a stupid man

it doesn't make sense at all

but so it seems
so it seems you are
you are mine

so it seems
so it seems you are
you are mine

You are the present and future
with such a daunting task
embrace the failures and victories
embrace my thoughtless past

If I tried here to lay it all out again
and see where the pieces lay
that my own personal hero
would know me and choose to stay

It doesn't make sense at all

But so it seems
so it seems you are
you are mine
so it seems
so it seems you are
you are mine
Track Name: The Desert
Seems we can be a little optimistic lot
as we concede committal to the ever changing plot

we're clutching in the flames
and though the desert dies

when we are shaken at the seams
I will be at your side
I'll be at your side
Nothing will pull you far from me
when I am at your side

Like the shore will forever
silence every wave
but the water's always breaking cliffs and making caves

we're clutching in the flames
and though the desert dies

when we are shaken at the seams
I will be at your side
I'll be at your side
Nothing will pull you far from me
when I am at your side

Maybe in a year we could see ourselves
further than we were when we hit these walls

Nothing will pull you far from me
when I am at your side
I'm in my place now, permanently
and I am at your side
Track Name: Another Like You
Is it leaping a mountain
or swimming across the seas
shapes all into an order that say who you are to me

I know it's not my hands
that place me where I am
cause I was reaching

I know it's not my sight
that brought me to your light
cause I was looking.
I was looking

Say you love the way that I do
cause I won't find another like you
since you picked me up I always knew
that I won't find another like you

Like a meteor blazing
and plunging into the earth
and piercing through the storms
you shaped me with your warmth
and I was looking.

Say you love the way that I do
cause I won't find another like you
since you picked me up I always knew
that I won't find another like you

I won't find another like you.
Track Name: Mudrug
Shout a song of a love
that smashes every push and every shove
looking for a trace of larger life
and if they're really waiting up at night

and I can toe the line
between the irreverent and divine
and I know it isn't too polite
to walk in and expect you get the light

you might be sick of me being so literal all the time
I sound ridiculous and I know it.
and you're hospitable though I'm tracking mud on your rug.
you grab my nature so you can grow it.

See I was wrong about you
and what you're trying to do
see I was wrong about you
(we throw the daggers down)
See I was wrong about you
and what you're trying to do
see I was wrong about you
(repaint the picture now)

Temporary remorse
I'd mostly rather be my only source
but instead of pushing back in pride
seems like you will let me learn to drive

you might be sick of me being so literal all the time
I sound ridiculous and I know it.
and you're hospitable though I'm tracking mud on your rug.
you grab my nature so you can grow it.

See I was wrong about you
and what you're trying to do
see I was wrong about you
(we throw the daggers down)
See I was wrong about you
and what you're trying to do
see I was wrong about you
(repaint the picture now)
