Track Name: When They Dig Us Up
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
Track Name: Something's Happening
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.
Track Name: What Am I Doing Here?
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
Track Name: Everything Will Change
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
Track Name: The Brothers
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.
Track Name: One Is Enough
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
Track Name: You're Burning Up
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…
Track Name: Outer School
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.
Track Name: I Want Answers
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.
Track Name: On Miracles
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?
Track Name: Bro.Sis
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
Track Name: Targa Verb
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
