michael I love how this tune tiptoes along until the 0:31 mark and then gets all up in your face. Favorite track: Family Reunion pt. 1.

Waste I Will 03:56
Hopefully we know we’re clear that once we meet again we’ll disappear How could I be lonesome here? There’s only time to waste and waste I will Moved it on and left a mess I guess I’ll carry you still if you foot the bill Take this off my back This is not the place to wonder where you are Falling down while walking every fold in the dark Feel it out All the time I wonder what we see
There was a chance I thought I’d take nothing to keep me down, and I’m feeling left out It’s only weeks left and I’ll be on (I’ll be on) where nothing makes a sound Taken in the moment the sky slides out of view, silent, still and true Go from a repeat to a lazy day Couldn’t be more entertained I’ll need to see reasons left unknown or my travel is my home Sailing in the shadow of a hundred year old dream we fall in between Catch and throw away years across the arms Every day the same Still, a patient wait Believing it in the end to be painless and plain Reaching out, an empty pull first thoughts we all can stand at every hungry hand A wait to take anything we get, and hope they don’t forget We’re keeping what we must running out of the pieces left for us It’s all because that dream came true
So Wonderful 04:01
So wonderful You won’t believe the birds we’ve seen golds and greens all frame the afternoon With every step collecting debts Run instead Try to understand we need to breathe so keep your seat Stay asleep, and it’s no mystery they don’t belong But is it wrong to get along? Come to see it’s only right All the songs and calls drown out the leaves and sounds of feet Days complete, though True, they need a break it’s a mistake to fan the flames Move away Fight the urge to live between the streets and concrete trees Cold machines, and I’ve seen the difference between a gift and short sold dreams Plans and schemes Believe in your mind And every release you find That time is a world unkind And it’s hard to picture it, the worlds we’ll see
Redefined 04:48
Call it what you need Comfort me and let it be a story told in the dark I will play my part Just another sky Why is it that every time we fall behind I see what there is to beat? Lose yourself today It’s okay to see your self another way and you’ll grow I will let you know Keep it in mind I am here to do my best and I expect that you know Some things move so slow All that heart and every part I’ll give away Don’t you say that I’m cold My only hope is to hold on
Was it in a dream I saw you sneaking glances? You were taking second chances, or was that how it seemed? Was it in a dream that I was getting older? My arms, they couldn’t hold her but still were hanging on at the seams Sleep walking, another one down with a moment to collect And all I said was I never would understand Don’t let a countdown get in the way A long good time, a soft goodbye You’re there to stay A good clear head and a happier home never happened to you riding alone Stuck in the middle of it, still as a stone wondering where you can go to get along Well was it in a dream I saw that all of it was ending? Falling from the tallest chimneys to the boxes that I keep Ain’t it a shame we push it away? We push it away
If death and sleep are brothers then birth must be their cousin because I cannot for the life of me remember where I was before then If time keeps rolling on for no one well then, what’s the use of keeping track? Because I cannot for the life of me imagine why I’d ever want to go back Stealing the whole throe a grand and meaningful show that creeps into weekends, appeals to the telescope I don’t need a reason to go Let them all forget the hard and evil ways deep in the heart A way to begin I’ll be in till the end unless they find another way All the ways to the end leave a place to begin
Weakened, rusted out or dust there still is reason to find out what it does Forget the other troubled seasons they are lost but mentioned now and then To find a mind to climb inside would leave us running with nothing left to hide Again, a moment holds this town They were calling when no one was around And if your heart just leaves you in the dark your mind will lose it all but shouldn’t let you down And when you part I hope that from the start it is as beautiful as life with you around Slowing down and thoughts that once were racing seem to slip away creating ways unseen Underground is where we all come from but where we’ll end up is nowhere to be found Repaired and carried in my arms the walk is hard enough but never is too far We’ve built futures where we’ll stay A fate uncertain, but I am not afraid And if it's fine for me to drop the line then I will pick a day so that's the way it goes And when it’s time my hope is all that’s mine is given away to those that need it most When you leave I hope that you are greeted by a thousand sunsets setting the sky on fire And if it seems the feeling is completed it is done I’ll be with you in time
My face of the earth can’t see me anymore I need the clean scenery found in the other door Can’t send them away so talk about it Oh, please, another reason to freeze and turn it in Never told to believe just strapped into a seat in the middle of a free fall and an endless stream of heat A new way to create a clear escape, a little late, never thought of the years left to wait Cold crew and a sleepless week for me Told none of the ending plans to you No use in a tool you cannot see Never once was a meaning so misused Looking into a sky you don’t understand holding answers and history in your hand Staring into your heart from a man made star from where you are reaching out for a piece as it falls apart Let it go and my hands are on my knees Give it up for another chance to breathe
Caught in the water again We all turned around again You don’t know Cut and paste the story again Feel lost for a while again You don’t know Which will remain we owe it to shame to take all the blame
Life So Kind 03:09
Why do you believe? Don’t you have the strength yourself to see it through? I have no problem that I can’t get over by myself Every day ends well and you make it what you can and will You know, you never seem to feel what it is that holds you back Everything is harder till you crack it open and get out To who do you appeal? You know you have capacity to feel and be felt There is just no reason you should give those things to someone else Keep them all yourself so you can take and give them as you please And nothing brings me to my knees quicker than the loss of life so kind Everything is harder till you find another waste of time
