Track Name: Run
One coast appears one sighs with a red eye
So fast you get carried away I’m a luck break
The hours are miles behind

So I run never caught
Yes I run never stopped

A roll bar between my chest and firm dash
Too fast to stop the inertia created if all goes according to plan
The hours are miles behind

So I run never caught
Yes I run never stopped

Without command I’ll gladly come down
from my high horse to meet you
Get up, off of the ground, show me a road
That lays itself a western record but somehow manages
To salute the rising sun

So I run never caught
Yes I run never stopped
Track Name: Courage
Passing through the troposphere drugged.
In a canopy cruising at 30K feet back to you
And it all comes down to run aways
Just get on.

Found a Camel in the armrest ashtray
The color of your lips adorns the filter, it’s the shade I’m seeing
And I’m heading for that run away
Just get on.

I’m packing up my courage
To take a battle-ax to this disease.

Turned around instead of meeting at the gate.
But I’ve perfected stubbornness with a head to thick to know when I have blown it
And it all comes down to run aways
Just get on.

I’m packing up my courage
To take a battle-ax to this disease.
Track Name: The Colorful Part Of The Scenery
Run don’t stop going for anything
Footprints dig in stop motion
You shouldn’t have signed up when you had the chance. It’s winless
You’ll be the colorful part of the scenery if you tucker out

You’re alone against the ends
Wired up to bleed away
The ground assault stopped again

Back when firefights broke out in words
Side splits started forming clay into dirt
You shouldn’t have signed up when you had the chance. It’s winless
You’ll be the colorful part of the scenery if you tucker out

You’re alone against the ends
Wired up to bleed away
A ground assault until the halt

You’re alone against the ends
Wired up to bleed away
The ground assault stopped again

Mine waits in six inches in seconds it’s gone
Vapor hover is cumulous
You shouldn’t have signed up when you had the chance. It’s winless
You’ll be the colorful part of the scenery if you tucker out
Track Name: Alarms Go Off
I am the thought in the back of your head
Keepin' it dark on the inside
With whispers of old scores and men you once knew
By old songs of man

You were a cube in the freezer
When all the alarms went off
Caught in your own antecedent
And can't ever get out

I’ve got my eyes in the back of your head a look out
Keeping watch over all that’s come and gone
Seeing your old life and then feeding what’s new
Seeing your old life has past

You were a cube in the freezer
When all the alarms went off
Caught in your own antecedent
And can't ever get out

Don’t turn around when the feeling is there
Just point your feet to the future
And think of some old scores and men you once knew
Think of your old scores and men

You were a cube in the freezer
When all the alarms went off
Caught in your own antecedent
And can't ever get out
Track Name: The Void Left When I Slipped Away
Miles and highway worn
I’m a last chance looking to choose
You had thought we’d be together again
Your cry was wasted
All that’s left is an echo chamber
A void when I slipped away.

Try to take it back but you cant
It was a last act that turned into fugue state
But you had found permanent amnesia again
This time tested
All that’s left is your echo chamber
And all you hear is yourself.

At first it didn’t take
A force was at work to keep you here.
But that’s not what counted
If I was your rock it’s cause you bled me dry

You still believed we'd be together again
After waking up
All that’s left is an echo chamber
and all you hear is yourself
You had thought we would be together but what’s left Is a void when I slipped away
Track Name: You Never See It Coming
My wrong was infinite
You were right it’s colorless and everything to me (Harmony)
Is black and white

How long will you let me get away with it? (Harmony)
An attempted cover up I will always know (Harmony)
What I have done

You never see it coming
And then erupts again
You never see it coming
The knot at the end of my rope
Is already undone

Oh the matter ends
there’s a lull the canvas stretched
All you ever wanna do
(I’ll say it, why waste your breath)
Oh the bitter end
there’s a trip before you fall
All you do is talk

My guns are empty (Harm)
When all the factions in a duel are drawing a blank
It’s time to disarm

How long will you let me get away with this
An attempted cover up I will always know
What I have done

You never see it coming
And then erupts again
You never see it coming
The knot at the end of my rope
Is already undone
You never see it coming
And then erupts again
You never see it coming
The knot at the end of my rope
Is already undone

All around is a frayed cable
It’s a guaranteed breakdown
Track Name: Private I
Crosseyed I crossed my heart going home
A new world with old world charm
Put your keys down
I can’t go backwards horizontally
There’s a madcap mad man living inside of me

Blue knows white is black
You don’t see it, there’s a crack in the glass
That keeps the colors in the past

Now that you got this you’ve seen me solving the rubix
In 3D discovery my Private I
Goes downtown I’m a riot
Like an unmarked man hunt I’m a riot

Blue knows white is black
You don’t see it, there’s a crack in the glass
That keeps the colors in the past
Track Name: I Don't Want To Give Up On You
I don’t want to give up on you
But that is not an independent thought
Or a line that I can just ignore
I’m through the wall. And through accepting it.

I don’t want to give up on it
But where we go is solely up to you
It’s a strobe of alternating light
And shadows the echoed canopy

Finish what started out as full of doubt

I don’t want to start from zero sum
When the both of us need another win
There was once a register we kept
The tally of desperate elements

Finish what started out as full of doubt
Track Name: Try To Contain It
In the morning
You’re so full of love again
Did last night not happen in your mind
Cause I remember it

It went sideways
up till you (left your pride aside)
That’s when I (saw you through the mines)
If you rage then you can't

Be the bomb
And be the bomb shelter
You can’t
Be the bomb
And be the bomb shelter
That tries to contain it

Blood lust
Drains from the air again
If Logan were here he’d still sniff it out
If you rage then you can't

Be the bomb
And be the bomb shelter
That tries to contain it

Be the bomb
And be the bomb shelter
That tries to contain it
Track Name: North To Port
Wrong place, wrong time. I never meant to string it along
That one lonely night has captured you by the heart
And won’t let go
There’s no justice when you lose it to a jealous eye.

Let’s face the shit storm approaching
Then turn our backs north to port, into the wind
It’s been time to run again for too long

Right place, right time. I never thought you’d string me along
Those were lonely nights that captured me by the heart
And won’t let go
There's no reward to the risk of losing to a jealous eye.

The wrong man became mine. I hadn’t met you yet
For three lonely years I sang to you instead.
And you didn’t know
When I wrote them, they came from my jealous heart

Let’s face the shit storm approaching
Then turn our backs north to port, into the wind
It’s been time to love again for too long.
We turned our backs north to port into the wind.
