Waking up

Sift through the weight, Drift through the pain

Shell of my old self, Calloused in freeze frame

Dust off the shame, Brush of the blame

Press palms to the kiln, crafting a dream that we can fill

 

I’m waking up.

Time is a vessel to heal

I’m waking up

Pulling my line to the reel

 

Cordial to a fault, comprehension in a vault

Seeking out solace, Hastening my thoughts

Rising to the road, yeah mining for gold

Unearthing myself, exposing the cold

 

I’m waking up

Time is a vessel to heal

I’m waking up

Pulling my line to the reel

 

The fraud

This ship steers without a paddle sometimes

Dust bowl dance leaves the wind and the chimes

Over-flowed cup is a common theme

Too much, too fast is in a lost dream

 

Someone pulls the plug on me sometime

Burning the tea, no reason no rhyme

Over-flowed cup is a common theme

Too much, too fast in a lost dream

 

I am the fraud at night

And I cannot see the end in sight

I am the fraud the night

Surfer blues

My baby left me for the tide

My baby’s gunning for a ride

She up and left, left me a mess

My baby left me for the tide

 

My baby left me for the coast

I think I will miss her the most

This town is dragging me down

My baby left me for the coast

 

My baby left me for the waves

No time to grow, no time to change

She reminds me of the sun, I can’t wait for night to come

My baby left me for the waves

Running in circles

We were running in circles

Something we have always known

I wanted to be still, yeah

As to not run into you

 

We were on the mend

Almost making right

And then one day, yeah yeah yeah

We left it all behind

 

Singing

 

We were skirting ‘round the issues,

Lying to ourselves

Never seeing eye to eye

Putting our feelings on the shelf

 

We were on the mend

Almost making right

And then one day, yeah yeah yeah

We left it all behind

CrASH DOWN

The galaxy is an ocean

Just to catch my fall from the moon

Set my navs for the earth, gonna crash down soon

Crash down soon

 

It’s been far to long in space

I gotta get on home to all my friends, foes, family

Down in the dirt with all my hopes and all my dreams

It’s been far too long alone

 

And my fuel burns in the atmosphere

For the first and for the last time I see clear

 

Headlong into the atmosphere

I leave my mind behind floating on

Touch down into existence confront what is real

What is real

 

It’s been far to long in space

I gotta get on home to all my friends, foes, family

Down in the dirt with all my hopes and all my dreams

It’s been far too long alone

Biding my time

Our gun fired the first shot

Our gun won’t be the last one

Truth hurts in the spotlight

Truth knows what’s wrong from what’s right

 

Lay down your guns and surrender

This .45 won’t set you free

Lay down your gun and surrender

Enough is enough, lay ‘em down

 

The sun beats down on my neck

Will I ever find my rest?

Through the pines and the divide

Losing my mind, biding my time

 

Losing my mind, biding my time

 

Lay down your guns and surrender

This .45 won’t set you free

Lay down your gun and surrender

Enough is enough, lay ‘em down
