Somewhere in the fear there lies the truth And there’s no hiding out if you wanna break through Pendulum swings back n forth Zero sum of history’s course Now I’m just trying to let go I only know what I’ve got to sing If all I have left is your heart and this ring What will they think of us When they dig us up? Everyone we try to cure we just kill a different way When you think you’re being cool, well sides are being made Every time we hold too tight, what we want just slips away And the gold in every home was first painted in a cave I had to get comfortable in my own skin Before I could even think of letting you in We’re all balanced on the tip of a pin The world shifts once – you get tossed in Everyone we try to cure we just kill a different way When you think you’re being cool, well sides are being made Everytime you hold too tight, what I want just slips away They thought it was so safe – it just created different strains

My body wants to believe In everything that God and I want I’m a lesson gleaned In all the things that you want I’m trying hard to believe Is everything as open as I thought? I know I’ll want it I hope I’ll want it Oh! Oh! Born to find a way Am I better off on my own? All those things they said Well I cannot believe it The strangest thing The strangest thing is they never asked Am I one of them? Or am I just moving past? Oh! Oh! Someday it will be right Everybody wants to love I’m holding tight And you’re holding on I know. The writing is on the wall. I know. Somethings happening for real.

How did I get in an airplane … in an airplane on the lawn? Tired and unsure if I was to be here all along It was only right of them to give warning As morning took dawn What am I doing here? This is how I know This is how I know its real Strange fun So strange how it works Its only the ones who wait it out That don’t get hurt You want to believe You just want to believe But if gone are your friends You’ll go it alone You’ll go it alone What am I doing here? This is how I know This is how I know its real Thank god you were alright Alright Believe what you want ‘Cause its right I guess we’re just alone Tonight

I never thought that I could feel this way A body wakes but doesn’t feel quite the same What did I do? What did I do to get this way? Sometimes you just do things for love Whatever will become of us? Words bend time into a silver cup I know everything will change My name – my name isn’t what it was When we were kids we thought we’d stay the same Holding on to things that were sure to change Passed you on the street. Barely knew your face. Sometimes you just do things for love Whatever will become of us? Words bend time into a silver cup I know everything will change My name – my name isn’t what it was

The Brothers 03:53
If they have already left, guess its alright to say “Hope that things can sort themselves someday.” No more changing lines. No more wine. Turn it up and hold me down this time. Oh my body, oh my heart are bursting at the seams My brother lies there opened up - he never says what he means Wish that you could come back here and save us from this scene The cops are on their way – the call’s been made And I don’t know if I have the guts to say no more goodbyes. There’s no more time. So turn it back and put his heart in mine Oh my body, oh my heart are bursting at the seams My brother lies there opened up - he never says what he means Wish that you could come back here and save us from this scene If I leave against my will and slip out of town Will you keep things quiet and visit me when this settles down No more changing lines. No more wine. Turn it up and hold me down next time.

If one is enough – if one is enough I’m done This is the line – this is the line I’ve drawn If I gotta believe – then I gotta believe it all My other life - debonair Holy robes – holy stares You’re burning up – I just don’t care I abstained – cuz I’ve been there You better believe – you better believe your friends Warnings sign – will the warning make the man? (I’m on this) If two is the world – if two is the world at hand We are intertwined houses built on sand Some other life – debonaire Holy robes – all that flair You’re burning up – loves in the air I abstained – cuz I just don’t care My other life – debonair Holy robes – holy flair You’re burning up – I caught the stare I abstained – cuz I’ve been there

Raise your body to the sun Seasons change and everyone goes home A heart opens up for just a while Then seasons change and it folds back its smile You’ll work it out piece by piece All alone standing on the beach You’re burning up believing things That might be true… or they might just be nothing All worked up Borne by the wind And so eloquent Its strange, don’t you think? Shouldn’t it have looked the same Water turned white after the rain Raise your body to the sun Seasons change and everyone goes home A heart opens for just a while Then seasons change and it folds back its smile You’ll work it out piece by piece All alone standing on the beach You’re burning up believing things That might be true… or they might just be nothing All worked up Borne by the wind So strange that they want nothing Some of us rust While those boys in their cars just wanna drive Who really knows whats in the light? Oh lord…

Outer School 04:12
Your body wants to market all the words that we have cared about Hazy days, oh lazy days – where have you gone? Such a narrow view – that the world might change, and wait for you You pushed away everything you ever wanted – now you’re on your own If you ever wondered what mercy could do This is how a body burns and yet no one here calls it out We’re all attached to what the market will provide They’ve hijacked the last few things we kept inside Such a terror in school Kids all gathered round to take your cues You pushed your way – they made no sound Everyone just played the fool You call, you call, you call, you call and you call But it meant nothing at all If you ever wondered what mercy could do This is how a body burns and yet no one here calls it out We’re all attached to what the market will provide They’ve hijacked the last few things we kept inside They’ve hijacked the last few things.

Call me – I want answers I can deal with I’m worn out. I’m worn out. We’ll bury my memory. I won’t need it, If its worn out, its worn out. Its worn out. Solemn sacred murder. Lonely widow – light the fire. Light the fire. We’ll rally around our leader. Raise his children when he dies. When he dies. When he dies. When he dies. When I die. Call me. I want answers I can deal with.

On Miracles 03:36
Hollow feet walk alone down a pier Storm settles in (But there’s nothing here) I wait, I watch You bend the walls But I’m not so sure it’s a miracle Not so sure it’s a miracle What if it is? What if your brain’s still spinning? What if it is? What if your heart’s still beating? What if it’s the modern age? Could you celebrate? Strange sounds Lights bend under the fog The city peels back your tongue As you bend clocks It’s a miracle Not so sure it’s a miracle You’re not so sure it’s a miracle What if it is? What if my brain’s still spinning? What if it is? What if my heart’s still beating? What if it’s the modern age? Could I celebrate?

Bro.Sis 03:42
We spent our youth brave & thin (I knew it would change) Those hollow days started caving in (You knew it would change) There was honour in love Our bodies never gave up All night – it just felt right Holding the reigns of a hundred horses So light – it just felt right Riding the waves of unknown forces We were a quiet fire burning in the woods (Did you put it out?) They came with spears & shouted as loud as they could (Had to keep real quiet) There was danger in love We lay low, kept our eyes up All night – it just felt right Holding the reigns of a hundred horses So light – it just felt right Riding the waves of unknown forces They were waiting up when we came home at 3 (Do they know it is real?) We fooled our parents with our speech (They ate it up) We had a map to love We knew where we came from All night – it just felt right Holding the reigns of a hundred horses So light – it just felt right Riding the waves of unknown forces

Targa Verb 04:59
If all else fails, I got my peace of mind If all else fails, I got my peace of mind Call if off – in my head There’s only light Cuz if I want – I need – to bring you closer I want. I need. To bring you closer. I need to take it faster. Call my name Call my name There’s only light Cuz if I want – I need – to bring you closer I want. To bring you closer. I need to take it faster. Bring you closer I need to bring you closer
