Track Name: Dry Your Eyes
Dry your eyes
My friend
You will soon
Begin again

Dry your eyes
Don’t waste another
Moment crying when you could be laughing
With your sister
Your brother

Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes tonight
Track Name: Hotblack
Took a big trip
With your old band
To your homeland
For the wrong man

Making big plans
For your own sake
Hope they don’t bend
Hope they don’t break

Took a tip from a rodeo show
Get a grip or you’re gonna get thrown
Take your aim when you take a shot
For the man under you will take everything you got

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren’t looking
Keep a smile but you burn it hot
It’s a mad, mad, world

Take the pills that they give you mornings
Spit them out when they aren’t looking
Fix a smile but you burn it hot
It’s a mad, mad, world
Track Name: Excited
Soul riding
Soul diving
So exciting
When I’m alone with you

A white fin
In hiding
Soul biting
Killer he loves you too

He waits for
You nightly
As I do
Jealous he’s of us two

And after the sky will fall
We’ll beat their night
We’ll beat them all

And after the sun is shining we’ll go riding again
And after the sun is shining we’ll go riding again

Soul diving straight to my heart, tell me what do I do
As I wait
Oh as I wait for you
It’s getting harder not to say our goodbyes
Rising up to the test of our lives

My time, it seems, is all in the sea
It flows out of you and it flows in to me

And after the sky will fall
We’ll beat their night
We’ll beat them all

And after the sun is shining we’ll go riding again
And after the sun is shining we’ll go riding again
Track Name: Don't Wear Me Out
All the fear and dust it covers
Grab your hats and take your lovers inside

All the fog and rain it ruins
Take your laughs and take your doings inside

Though all the nation’s chiefs divided
I can feel the rays still shining
I can feel the rainbows coming in

So don’t wear me out
Don’t leave me here
‘Cause I’m not giving up
So I’m giving in

All my life it seems is bottle angst, unbottled angst, and bottled angst

Through my life it seems I’m throttling, unthrottling, and throttling

Through the days and weeks of fighting
I can see the rays still shining
And I feel the rainbows coming in

So don’t wear me out
Don’t leave me here
‘Cause I’m not giving up
So I’m giving in
Track Name: Go
Once I had a ticket, was a slave in the line up
Had a ticket I was almost there

Almost had a life completely automated
All of this and more if I cooperated

I had a ticket, was a slave in the line up
Had a ticket I was almost there

But the philosophy wasn’t talking to me
Wasn’t filling the day, and so now I say

Go
Leave me alone
Let me be

I had a ticket, was a slave in the line up
Had a ticket it was in my hand

It sang and it danced but was not for me
And I thought they would understand

But they keep coming at me in waves
Try to bleed me and stand in my way

Tell me all I’ll feel is a little sting
When they put the barcode on me

Go
Leave me alone
Let me be
Track Name: The rest you can live without
I had this dream and in this dream I was walking and soon I was upon this man
This man was pointing he was screaming for help for The Reaper had captured this lamb

I said “What’s doing here?” He said, “It’s pretty clear, but not many people can see what is plain to see. So this advice I give, for you have much to live”. And just then I noticed the lamb looked like me.

Hey, return what you wanted
It’s not what you need kid
The rest you can live without

Where is the phone, the telephone is ringing again, and again, and again
I will be there in one second, hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on man

And if there’s someone there
Then please, I’m now in the know

So make it real, I’ll bear no more deceit
It burns my soul
Track Name: Anywhere at All
She turns and says to me
Man you’d better find some peace
Honestly

But where is that to be
Where do I go to find
Some peace of mind

She said Anywhere at All
She said Anywhere at All

This weight upon my chest
Pushing papers on a desk
Back and forth

She said try to get to rest
But where can I go to reap
A little peace

She said Anywhere at All
She said Anywhere at All
Track Name: Wait For Me
Wait for me
Say you will
Patiently
Be there still

Be my one
By my orange sun
In the rain
Be my sage
Be my pilot through
All the rage

Wait for me
We’re saving years
A day of ours is worth ten of theirs

Be my lungs
When I buried deep
In the sea
Be my plan
Say we’ll all make out
In the end
And do it again, and again, and again

Be my lungs
When I’m buried deep
On the page
Be my plan
Say we’ll all be fine
On the stage
Be my scene
Be the side of me
That’s all the rage
Be my one
Be my orange sun
Track Name: Mistake
They say that life is a free thing and everybody
Has to find their way

They say that life is a free thing and everybody
Gets to find their space

But I’ll start walking, I’ll start talking
And I’ll start doing the things you want me to
And I’ll start saying, I’ll start praying
And I’ll behave the way you want me to

I’ll give it my all, I’ll give it my best,
I’ll give it my mind, I’ll give it my heart
I’ll give it my soul, I’ll give it my life
Oh I made a mistake, dropped out of the race
Fell out of the line, I’ll give it my all
I’ll give it my best, I’ll do it this time

Talk all you like it’s gonna be there
‘Cause you cannot surround all that we care for

And if you want to fight
I can go all night
But we don’t spare
Track Name: Pretty Things
I want to buy you pretty things
Horses and castles and diamond rings
And we’ll go dancing in the spring
If you like

And we’ll be alright
Never have to beg or have to fight
For what we know is true
That’s what we’ll never do
Never
Ever

And if we breathe for one another, they will never suffocate us
And if we stay close to each other, they will never separate us
And if we support one another, they will never get beneath us
And if we try
And if we try
They will never ever stop us
