Track Name: Find My Name in the Sun
Do you wanna take those chances

To find my name in the sun?

Do you wanna lie on the back of a mountain

Where the wolves do roam?

Do you wanna drink til’ the paintings do sing

Or do you wanna die before the dawn?

You survived the winter and I survived the cold

Just wanna let you know

On the other side

Does a loving feud have to be something more,

Or will the rug muffle our yells

Will the chipped paint on the walls ever dry?

Will the room keep closing in?

You smashed the doorframe

And I’ll burn the halls

Just wanna let you go

Shall we build a bridge from door to door

To help the postman on his route?

Shall we tip-toe through forest and field

To get the job done by ourselves?

Gather stargazers and curious wanders

On the other side
Track Name: Of the Moment
Here I am trapped in the embers

Of the moment

And the why
Track Name: Sorry
And I wouldn’t mind it if I wasn’t lonely,

but seems I like the way I’m living:

going to pieces all alone

and no one ever seems to know me.

I am truly sorry

I am truly sorry

My heart don’t work like it used to.

I can’t feel it but it’s pushing blood.

Saving face and no one knows:

I just never leave when I should.

And I am truly sorry

And I am truly sorry

And I am truly sorry
Track Name: The Silent
Start the fire under the sun

Bring your dresses, we’ll burn every one

Just whisper quietly and sort it out

Sweet Intent

Sweet Intent

Gamble the silence before the ash

Move the birds out before the crash

Just whisper quietly and sort it out

Sweet Intent

Sweet Intent

Don’t worry about it now

Don’t worry about it now
Track Name: Take Care
God takes care of his own

and I’m not one and I’m lost.

Now that I’m full grown and done,

I could do with a sleep but I won’t.

Time takes care of us all

and the wounds that heal too slow.

Still recovering from that

Last fall, oh why?
Track Name: Enough is Enough
Everything gold ain’t gonna shine,

but babe you’re burning up tonight.

Your heart’s as cold as the coast.

Your veins are running with the wind

that carry your thoughts out west.

And I can’t smile in a quiet south

I can’t liven up sorrowful Midwest

And so, I say enough is enough

I put up my guard

and sent in my regards.

It seems the lightest always falls,

so we tread with heavy hearts

on borrowed comforts after all.

And I can’t smile in a quiet South

I can’t liven up sorrowful Midwest

So, I say enough is enough

A storm pushed you to the edge:

a sea of chemicals in your head,

but I still know where you are.

Pushing warm blood out your heart,

collecting saints and thanking God

And I can’t smile
