Track Name: Rides
when you go i think that i might miss you
but when i'm alone
i find out that i don't
respond so well
to being ordered
when to sleep and breath
and how to spend my time

name a place and time
where i can meet you
right beside the pines
and under a disguise
yourself to keep from being noticed
by the ones who say
that you were never mine

hear the trains that whistle in the distance
calling out my name
want me to climb inside a car that's dark
and so persistent
while i close my eyes
and dream of dark blue nights
Track Name: Lazy Lessons
thoughts have parted
left unstarted

never been or seen this place before
could you tell me what's behind this broken door
and why are you standing black and white
like a negative
ghosts of you would not be right to give
i guess
never wanted all those lazy lessons
you made me feel misrepresented
try to say what was up with me and you
crazy acting like a fool for you
Track Name: Strikes
bliss blass
oceans pass
lightning strikes your sails at last
x eyes, skin and bones by your side

handprints in the sand
red plays
keep the dead at bay
tall tales
take a breath and say

throwing words
they hold no weight
drift along
a dirty lake
small now
they float away and break
Track Name: Staring at the Ceiling
we had that feeling, and couldn't wait til it was strong
but it didn't seem like healng
would take as long as it did
but it is and it does
Track Name: Getbye
heavy sittin' all day with a sinkin' feelin'
wish the sun would shine upon another face
dirtied up thighs another moment fleeting

guessing and questions get the mind to spinnin'
pushing you along into another place
toss aside the loser just to keep on winnin'

while i

love intoxication gets the hearts a reelin'
sudden little changes make the days go by
i can tell by your face that you're not healin'
anything you say has got me believin'
what we're gonna do and how to make it right
even on the darkest day i'm not leavin'

while i

take out all the books and let's start readin'
tales about the dead and the afterlife
picking up our souls so they start feedin'
put aside the mask that you've been wearin'
lookin' for a man that i want to see
honesty and trust'll keep us from tearin'

while i
Track Name: Wasted
i can't see your face from here
the sun
is right in my eyes
and it's a wasted light
