Track Name: Falling
i'll ignore you
if i have to
i don't want to see your face
like that anymore
i'm no angel
i'm no saint
this boy he needs saving too

i'm falling

i know jesus
i drank his blood
his blood it was better
than any preacher ever was
and i'm no painter
no i can't paint
so please paint it red for me

i'm falling

cavern's wide and cavern's deep
built a home inside your teeth
your teeth

i'm falling
Track Name: Worth It
every time i see your face
you're the queen of simple pain
i would never sell myself
all to lacerate my hell
i would never live this way
tied up in my sanity
jumping off in tragedy
bubble up the air i breathe

every time i see your face
you're the queen of simple pain
all these lies i tell myself
all to laminate my health
i would like to die this way
soaking in my memory
jumping off in tragedy
buckle i'm drowning
Track Name: Waiting
i know why
you do hide
all the visions of your mind
you're funny
you're so funny

don't you think
that it's worth
the slight chance you might get hurt
why don't you
just try

the division in your mind
one for you and one for time
can't you see that the bell is breaking

The melody
i hear you sing
is crystal clear a diamond ring
it's a jewel
you're no fool

breathing in
air that's pure
i know one thing that's for sure
you're the master
of yourself

the division in your eyes
one for you and one for time
can't you feel your body waning

the division in your eyes
one for you and one for time
can't you see everybody's waiting
Track Name: Stay
I'm coming down
to meet you at the station
and no
I won't ask
but it's your time that you're wasting
and if I had my way
you'd be here every weekend
but i guess
it's okay
I just want you stay

And if I
would have known
it would all go to shit
then I would have come
much earlier to see it
and dipped
in a hand
to rub you on the forehead
but I guess it's okay
as long as you will stay

And when
we're alone
I'll kiss you in the valley
and we'll dance in the field
where the tall grass brushes our knees
and we’ll lay
on the ground
and look up at the sky
and we’ll know it's okay
because we both can stay
Track Name: Want Me Too
i'll be who you want me to be
turn me into something cheap
i'll walk straight home after school
be your rainy april fool

cuz i want you
i want you
i want you to want me too

cheers to all the mini gods
prophets born in gravitas
i've been fooled twice and again
flowers dying that i send

but i want you
i want you
i want you to want me too

am i beautiful?
Track Name: Wandering No More
I was floating away,
you caught me by surprise.
You knew just what to say,
you fed me bread and wine.

I sold all of my summer clothes,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.

You were fixing a car,
to sail cross the land.
I was chasing a star,
getting drawn by your hand.

I sold all of my winter clothes,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.

Hours turn into days,
with you by my side.
You were leading the way,
I was there for the ride.

I sold everything I own,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.
Track Name: Farther Than the Sky
In the darkness of
the still and early morning
or the turning of
the page from day to night,
I saw your figure rise,
quiet moving from me,
and drew the darkness from
inside my hollowed eyes.

In my bedroom I
can feel the days are turning.
I sense the hours as
they wander by.
Outside my doorway still,
the current it is churning.
And all things from my life
seem farther than the sky.

And in the kitchen now,
the water it is boiling,
and I can't bear to learn
the secret how or why.
A silent serpent's tongue
is whispering through the window,
and all I can do is watch the passerbys.

And in my bedroom I
can feel the days are turning.
I sense the hours as
they wander by.
Outside my doorway still
the current it is churning,
and all things from my life
seem farther than the sky.

And then your crystal eyes,
shining through the doorway,
I see your diamond mind,
flashing through the dust.
And for a moment I
can see outside my window,
out into the night
being born from the dusk.

And in my bedroom I
can feel the days are turning.
I sense the hours as
they wander by.
Outside my doorway still
the current it is churning,
and all things save for you
seem farther than the sky.
Track Name: Rainforest Café
there's a time,
and place,
for happiness.
when the fall,
and grace,
make one.
and the very trace
is lost.
and the fall,
says it all.
and the rain keeps falling,
faster,
faster all the time.
and the words melt like leaves,
in winter,
winter all the time.
