Track Name: It's Gonna Go
Heart in hand you’ve just lost the rhythm
I can understand if you need a moment
Tell me what’s the plan, what’s the obligation
For a sign that you’ll never show?

Look around, look just don’t discover
That it’s one foot down, one step beats the other
Now you’re lost not found, if you’ve never wondered
Well it’s fate, inevitable

That's the way it’s gonna go oh, oh, oh
That's the way it’s gonna go oh, oh, oh
You’re never ever gonna know oh, oh, oh
That's the way it’s gonna go oh, oh, oh

Slow the scene, blink and miss the picture
What’ll never be, it’s all underwater
Under lock and key, safe within the borders
Of a life invariable, oh, oh oh

Face in time things you stopped believing
Like an alibi, like a city falling
Like the world on fire, honest hearts are beating
To an anthem you’ll never know

We’re spinning circles swimming in the storm
We’re spinning circles swimming miles from shore
You fought the battle while you lost the war
Just going down cause it’s worth fighting for
Now it’s just never the same

Softer now, night comes like a beggar
Stealing light and sound, the tide is flowing faster
It’s not why, but how that moves us ever after
It’s a drive spun out of control
Track Name: Closure on the Side
So wake up, as you break off, and I take stock
Of this state of the unknown,
You’re leaving, I'm reeling, can't take this empty
feeling all alone

You can't stop the hard drop the avalanche
So we've got a straight shot at never landing
on a path we know

But, we’ll meet again,
and maybe then you'll find it’s
Always harder to start over
So let’s not pretend, it’s hard to end like this
But maybe you’ll find, some peace of mind, but

I’ll let it be unanswered and illogical, like
Some mystery, alarming and enticing, cause I
Just wanna see, an ending with some
Closure on the side

You kept on, all hamstrung, so closed off,
You said that you were fine
Just listen, what's missing, your indecision
Kept me on the line
But I know that you've grown apart from us
And it's so remarkable that you were just
Delaying all this time

But, we’ll meet again,
And maybe then you'll find it’s
Always harder to start over
So let’s just pretend, like it's not an ending but
A new beginning, some kind of living

I’ll let it be unanswered and illogical, like
Some mystery, alarming and enticing, cause I
Just wanna see, an ending with some
Closure on the side

And do you feel the same as I,
Cause I can’t take no more
But you’ll get through this
I’m guessing you won’t even notice

I’ll let it be unanswered and illogical, like
Some mystery, alarming and enticing, cause I
Just wanna see, an ending with some closure on the side
Closure on the side
Track Name: Sounds
Check out my indie band, we’ve got this new song, with some
Whoa-oh’s, ‘cause we hope the crowd will sing along
I tried my best to stick to 4/4 time ‘cause it’s really hard to dance
to a short measure

Patty’s getting on my case
‘Cause the songs all sound the same
Don’t want to be another unknown band
With a really stupid name

So here we go
I’m writing only what I know
And it’s easy to go meta
When you can’t write nothing better at all
Don’t you know
I’ve got a face for radio
And a voice that’s meant only
To sing drunken karaoke
Singing whoa-oh-o-o-oh
For the longest
For the longest time

Check out this Facebook invite to our show, see there’s
No cover and we’d really love for you to go
Never mind that it’s a Tuesday night and 50 miles away
In our friend’s trailer

We know that you got things to do
We don’t want to waste your time
And when I tell you that we practiced this song
Well, it’s probably a lie

So here we go
I’m writing only what I know
Smug self-deprecation
And an open invitation to groan
Don’t you know
I’ve got a face for radio
And a voice that’s meant only
To sing drunken karaoke
Singing ooh-ee-oo
I look just like Buddy Holly
And you’re Mary Tyler Moore

Tried too hard for a deeper meaning
But end up endlessly repeating
The same old themes
And tired melodies

Forget the words
Now we’ll just make sounds
We’ll just make sounds
We’ll just make sounds
Don’t need no words
Now we’ll just make sounds
We’ll just make sounds
We’ll just make sounds
Track Name: Undertow
You’re hanging off the clouds
Drifting into outer space
You’re floating through my mind
Memories I can’t erase

I’m flying through your atmosphere
You’ve gone and now it’s crystal clear

The sun shines brighter with you gone
But it’s just so hard, to move along
The moon shines hopeful with my song
But the undertow, is too strong
Is too strong

You’re chasing fleeting winds
Cast away into the sea
Running circles in my head
Why can’t you just let me be
Track Name: Beaches
On and on, we’re rolling right through this town
Coast to coast, we’ll never stop or settle down
Sink or swim, our lives are in our hands

So take a page from out of distant memories
Hold your breath, come along and you will see
Take my hand, get lost with me out in the ocean sand

All I can take is all of the roads you want to go
All I can see is you, cause you’re the one I want to know

Letting go of what I know and what I see
We’re rolling on, reliving ancient memories
We’ll never know, if life is made or planned.

In a day, in a month or in a year
I’ll come around, and tell you what I hold so dear
So take me down, like waves upon the swirling the ocean sands.

All I can take is all of the roads you want to go
All I can see is you, cause you’re the one I want to know
Now we’ve got so much to do, living in another world
All I can see is true, how everything is beautiful

We’ve been lost and we’ve been found
Like the last car out of town
Cross the open road at night
Took a left we’ll make it right
And we’re not stopping now
Track Name: Blood on Snow
You drift in, on a summer’s breath
This season’s in decay
I’m chasing what will never end
I’ll find you in my way

No we can’t stop on this pilgrimage
Our footprints in the dust
We realize, but we’re too far gone
That there’s no one here but us

You came into my life anew
And now the winter’s coming through
We’re running for our lives to reach the day
But honesty is killing me
This road won’t let our lies go free
And now we’re finally standing face to face

I see it coming but I can’t stop falling apart
I’m sick of seeing how we just keep falling apart
I think I’m bleeding and I can’t uncover
A way to where you are

Yeah and I can’t stop falling apart
Yeah and I can’t stop falling apart
Yeah but the blood keeps flowing into the snow
into the snow

You're so distant, like you’re never there
So easily amused
Now I’m breathing thinner atmosphere
Afraid of being used

You came into my life and proved
That all the signs were coming true
I’ll never know what lies the other way
But honestly it’s killing me
How honesty won’t set us free
Cause now we’ll never see another day

I see it coming but I can’t stop falling apart
I’m sick of seeing how we just keep falling apart
I think I’m bleeding and I can’t uncover
A way to where you are
Yeah and I can’t stop falling apart
Yeah and I can’t stop falling apart
Yeah but the blood keeps flowing into the snow
into the snow
Track Name: Locked
Forgotten memories and half-written verse
Are crumpled into piles on the floor
And writers’ block, a rusted lock
On the doorway to my mind
No key, I’m trapped outside
Just hoping that it fades away with
Time

Somewhere in my mind
Is the notion of life, loss, and love and now
I can’t
Seem to remember how any of them
Felt to me
But can’t you see?
I’m fine.

Maybe I’ll
Write about hope and the American dream or
I’ll write some
Throwaway song with a catchy refrain
But I don’t care
There’s nothing there for
Me

Soon everyone will see
The embodiment of me
These half-baked ideas
My autobiography

Forgotten memories and half-written verse are
All I have to show
And every mistake that I’ve ever made is
Buried and ready to blow under the
Pressure of
Impressions of
Repression of
Expressions of the mind
I’m afraid it’s just a matter of time
Track Name: Stretcher
I’ll dust off my feet, when it’s time to go
Cause I’ve felt the heat, living in the afterglow
And I’ll light up like a flare, burning through nights so cold
As sparks fill the air, let me take you to the show

Don’t future-proof the story, when the ending’s never written in stone
There’s miles and miles before me and the journey’s starting now to unfold

Get on top of flow we’ll dream it up as we go
It’s enough just to know that all the stars will shine
Take it in just to find we’re seeing horizons beyond
Leave it all on the line cause all we have is time

Now here comes the fray, like thunder on rolling tides
It’s not what they say, it’s the smoke filling the skies
So let’s just charge up the scene, like lightning on summer’s eve
To live in between, we’ll head into the open seas

There’s beauty in the storm that gets you moving, even losing control
Just open up the doors and let the lights shine through the cracks and the holes
Track Name: The Tide
I could tell you what you want to hear
Say a little prayer and everything
Will turn out fine
But some things in life you can’t escape
The tide will
Rise

From dust we have arisen
And from dust we shall return
Our souls are birthed on fire
We sit back and watch them burn

Look into the face of
Our entropic destiny
And with unflinching confidence
Proclaim your amnesty

Have a little faith
A little faith
And you’ll be strong
And carry on
I know they’re in a better place
At least that’s what I’d say
If only I believed

The righteous look to the heavens for the answers
And they fight this feeling of hopeless nihilism
That ignites this spark now encircling my brain
They told me “you’ll understand it when you’re older;
It consoled me when I was in my darkest hours”
Oh they sold me the world

If tomorrow comes and still the darkness won’t subside
We’ll look out at the stars and we’ll proclaim them yours and mine
If beyond them there’s no greater meaning to subscribe
Then all that differentiates is time

I can’t tell you what you want to hear
But I’ll stand beside you as the
Waves come crashing down
Some things in life you can’t escape but
The tide will
Fall
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes I just feel, like a mouse in a wheel
Powering the moon and the stars
Sometimes I’m a mist covering the fields
Gone with noon-day sun

And all we leave, are words and our disease
All we say, whispers on a breeze
So take my hand as we sink into the sand
Follow me, we’ll swim across the sea
And we’ll find a place to be free

Sometimes I’m a boat, stuck in a moat
Hoping to row out to sea
Sometimes I’m a key, no lock but just me
A doorway to nowhere
Track Name: Hands are Waving
Started another day
With everything in my way
I needed the words say
That I wouldn’t make it home

No I didn’t have to choose
This living in other’s shoes
It’s easier not to lose
Now it’s time to pick up and go

Cause you know, there are harmonies to every note you play
And you see all the people with you all along way

Hands are waving, time to fly
Can’t keep waiting for a sign
Paper planes now fill the skies
And you know, there is beauty in the show
And all the places left to go
And it’s amazing to just know and just be known

Let’s give it another try
When the element of surprise
Is gonna be on our side
'Unattainable' is the word

So pick up that other dream
It’s the one that you have to see
If only just to believe
That it’s never been said or heard

Can you hear all the music playing every step you take?
Can’t you see that you’re living when you live for the mistakes?
Track Name: Sunday Morning
Another Sunday morning
And the sun is shining bright
I just feel like snoring
'Til another Friday night

I hit the snooze alarm, disappointed as I find
The buzzing keeping me awake
Is in my mind

Lately I'm a dreamer
But I just can't find the time
To both be lazy
And a rock star on the side

Writing on the whiteboard
With a fading shade of red
I like to keep a record of
The nonsense in my head

50 iterations of
A way to quantify
My inclination to
Give up and stay inside

Lately I've been scheming
But I just can't find the time
For both describing
And subscribing to my mind

Set a reminder
"Write a new song every day"
Welcome to day 1 of my new life
It sounds okay
Track Name: Gone
Far and away, rising on a silver view
Wait, wait till I’m gone, wait cause I will come for you

“I’ll fade away like an evening shadow in the night,”
You said to me, but I never heard you right

I know you’re gone, but in a transformative way
Now all of the lights start to fade
Whatever after comes to pass, you’re
Gone, in an extraordinary place
Cause even the end’s a fleeting stage
I’m holding on by letting go of you

Out in the stars, all across the galaxy
I know you’re gone, but I’ll carry what you’ve done for me

You always called but I never knew just what to hear
Now that you’re gone, all the meaning becomes crystal clear
“I’ll fade away like an evening shadow in the night,”
You said to me, now I know why were right

I know you’re gone, but in a transformative way
And even when night takes the day
Whenever after comes too fast, you’re
Gone, in an extraordinary place
Cause even the end’s a fleeting stage
And now I’m letting go

I know you’re gone, just in a transformative way
And even when night takes the day
Whenever after comes too fast, you’re
Gone, in an extraordinary place
Cause even the end’s a fleeting stage
I’m holding on by letting go of you
Track Name: Stretcher (EP version)
I’ll dust off my feet, when it’s time to go
Cause I’ve felt the heat, living in the afterglow
And I’ll light up like a flare, burning through nights so cold
As sparks fill the air, let me take you to the show

Don’t future-proof the story, when the ending’s never written in stone
There’s miles and miles before me and the journey’s starting now to unfold

Get on top of flow we’ll dream it up as we go
It’s enough just to know that all the stars will shine
Take it in just to find we’re seeing horizons beyond
Leave it all on the line cause all we have is time

Now here comes the fray, like thunder on rolling tides
It’s not what they say, it’s the smoke filling the skies
So let’s just charge up the scene, like lightning on summer’s eve
To live in between, we’ll head into the open seas

There’s beauty in the storm that gets you moving, even losing control
Just open up the doors and let the lights shine through the cracks and the holes
