Track Name: David And Katie
David grew up in a small town
Working night shifts at the liquor store
All he ever cared about was
making sure him and Katie much more

Oh how life can go upside down
so wrong with a single mistake
but now Katie's gone
David's dreaming about different days

They through their love would win
that bank had enough of money to spare
In and out, 5 minutes at most,
Didnt even think anyone would even care

Oh how life can go upside down
so wrong with a single mistake
but now Katie's gone
David's dreaming about different days

Just as the clock hit quarter to four
right before the bank was closing it's doors,
It was all going to plan
'til Katies gun went off in her hand
Such a strange noise in this quiet town
the cops ran in and cut her down,
David screamed as he watched love die
And that's why Katie, aint by his side

Oh how life can go upside down
so wrong with a single mistake
but now Katie's gone
David's dreaming about different days
Track Name: Victoria
Oh Victoria
its not like it used to be
my heart just isnt in it
and i think you can see.
Latley I've had
so many sleepless nights
just trying to forget
all those good times

It wasnt like this
even a few months ago
but then something changed
and i felt the pull.
And im getting so tired
of running around
trying to fall back
in love in this town.

Oh Victoria
You know I've hated you before
but this time i swear
I hate you even more.
And all the people
that i once knew
You've changed them forever
maybe I've changed too
Track Name: Whatever Happened To Us?
Well how fast things can change
when you're keeping track.
And how the headlights turn to beams
when theyre flying past.
There was a time when we would fight
with swords made of sticks,
but now we yell at eachother
with our hands in fists.

Whatever happened to us?
How our bones quickly grew old.
Whatever happened to love?
Didnt know time would take a toll.
Whatever happened to nights?
We spent watching the stars explode.
We were nothing but fools falling for fools.

You used to say youd leave this town,
never even look back.
How that scared me ghostly pale
that you could leave me like that.
There was a time when we would cry
about the happy things,
but now just seem to cry about
all the things I sing.

Whatever happened to us?
How our bones quickly grew old.
Whatever happened to love?
Didnt know time would take a toll.
Whatever happened to nights?
We spent watching the stars explode.
We were nothing but fools falling for fools.

So when the truth comes down
and ill be left with the sound
of a goodbye, and a falling glass
it seemed to come so quick
with out a reason for it
but here i am crying all alone

Whatever happened to us?
How our bones quickly grew old.
Whatever happened to love?
Didnt know time would take a toll.
Whatever happened to nights?
We spent watching the stars explode.
We were nothing but fools falling for fools.
We were nothing but fools falling for fools.
Track Name: Fire In The Wind
I said wait
I need just a moment
for me think
collect all my thoughts
cause if I'm leaving tonight
who I thought would be my life
I need to know this is right

I didn't think
that I was this kind of woman
I didn't know
I had it in my bones
for me to leave behind
the man who saw me in white
but I'll leave, in the darkness of the night

So let's forget these gold ring on our finger
So let's forget this town where we live
Lets run the road, till our legs run no more
Let's run like fire, in the wind

I tried to stop
thinking about her
and for a second
I felt a shake
for that woman back home
who I'd now left alone
but the heart, can be a hard thing to chase

I know its wrong
to do what I'm doing
to toss another
poor heart aside
but can I declare
a love at home, no longer there
we're running, for a new way to live

So let's forget these gold ring on our finger
So let's forget this town where we live
Lets run the road, till our legs run no more
Let's run like fire, in the wind
Track Name: Spectre
I've been leaning against walls,
hoping to fall through,
like some kind of ghost,
you don't want to talk to.
I'm just worried you'll wake up
and see through the act,
that I'm bad at treading water
and I'm falling fast.

These old parts have gotten bent
they don't seem to fit,
together like we once
so comfortably did.
I guess cracking comes like
so many other things with age.
But I'm getting bad at running
without falling on my face.
Track Name: Searching For Home
I wanna go where the wind blows
where the rivers all flow out.
Follow the lights up to heaven
where I'll want to, lay me down.

But I'm searching for,
some place to call,
a little peaceful part of my own.

I can feel the rain upon me
and the blue birds are singing me a song.
Telling me, that I've found it,
that I've been there, all along

But I'm searching for,
some place to call,
a little peaceful part of my own.
Track Name: The Miserable Existence Of Ian Johnson
Bury me in your light, for I,
Don't want a story that I have to hide
So you dance naked, and black eyed
woke up singing a song of empty pride

I've been taking all the days, that you've been giving me
hoping one day I can take, a little more.
Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's
something, I can't forget.

Your mother speaking, I saw her
standing there with a daughter she never knew.
You said I was so crass, saying something like that,
But that's just what I do.

I've been taking all the days, that you've been giving me
hoping one day I can take, a little more.
Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's
something, I can't forget.

I've been taking all the pain, that you've been giving me
hoping one day I can take, a little more.
Cause I have never been one to, have a love that's
something, I can't forget.
Track Name: Spinning Wheel
I was half the man I thought I'd be
by the time I hit age 23
Ii was half the man I thought I'd become.
Do you think you'd be proud of me
if I told you all that I have seen
do you think you'd be proud of what I've done?

Another spinning wheel
in all the things I feel,
would it break your heart
to know, what I've become

I feel the rain upon my neck
and the trouble that's begun again,
a subtle reminder of the things I've lost.
As the wind blows through needles in the trees
I can hear the change it's following me
and only the wind will know where I will run

Another spinning wheel
in all the things I feel,
would it break your heart
to know, what I've become
Track Name: Maps
I've been reading the maps,
written on the back of your hands
trying to learn
where they begin and they end.
As you whisper to my face,
I won't know why
I won't give up,
spreading your lies.

As you come, to me
screaming out my name.
I won't beg you to stop.
She said I'd rather be
she said I'd rather be
she said I'd rather be,
anywhere but here.
Track Name: Lie To Me
As I came through the door
you saw right through me
as loud as the creaking in
the floors beneath my feet.
The blackness of my coat
reflected in your eyes
made me feel like losing
was maybe worth a try.

Some quick-witted bullshit
came pouring out of me
while constantly forgetting
submission could set me free.
For war has never been won
just by a man
counting the callouses
he makes on his hands

She said lie to me
like I know you need
the air you breathe
and through your skin
your hearts beating
faster still
as you come to me
saying your
sorry

She said lie to me
like I know you need
the air you breathe
and through your skin
your hearts beating
faster still
as you come to me
saying your
sorry
Track Name: Words
Well in truth I've never been one
to mince my words.
For years I've tripping on my tongue.
And for what it's worth,
I've been a captain on a sinking ship
one I've named for you,
and I'm headed right in to a storm
a journey into the blue.

Well I know we've been mistreating ourselves
since we came to know
where all the whispers can lead us
and where they eventually go.
For what can I hold on to,
if there's nothing there to grab?
The floor's been falling beneath my feet
ever since I learned to stand

Like lightening traveling through my skin
clouds cracking through veins
I will let me words do the same

They say a man will go far just to climb the banks,
only to find the fear is him.
For every story of the sea as it came to me,
I was too far gone to live.
But there you were, the night came and cut up the sails
I was racing to the other side
you said don't let go you've a soul I could know
but it was too late to try.
So I was giving up finding any sense of self
when it all came crashing down
I was buzzing like a bee without a sense of doubt
just waiting to be found

Like lightening traveling through my skin
clouds cracking through veins
I will let me words do the same

Wait, for these words to break
wait for what I have to say.
Wait, for these words to break
wait for what I have to say.

Wait, for these words to break
(but I've been trying so long)
wait for what I have to say.
(but all these words, they come out so wrong)
Wait, for these words to break
(but I've been trying so long)
wait for what I have to say.
(but all these words, they come out so wrong)
Track Name: Siblings
Brother can you tell me now
where I went wrong
and how all of these promises
have taken so long?
Why I can't seem
to finish what i start
even when I know
it tears you apart

Sister was it too hard
for you to believe
that this could come from anyone
anyone but me?
And how all this blood
that races through my veins
has never ran been more sure
its never more the same

Brother know I've been true
when it seemed like a lie
but sometimes the honesty
is beautiful when it dies.
Its a trigger of sorts
for things I don't know
its a trigger of sorts
to letting things go

Sister know that I was true
Even when it felt so wrong
but I never gave up
singing this song
And how all the blood
that races through these veins
has never been more sure
been more the same
