Track Name: Salmon Arms (Acoustic)
Started out so high, but we got so low
While our smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow
Fix this mess that I've strewn on the floor
old tshirts and the clothes I don't wear anymore
and the books that I've read lay behind the door

Started out so high, but we got so low
While or smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow.
And the sobbing from the alley pulled me from my bed
ran to the window, tossed the fears that I had
felt the wind on my face, opened my eyes instead
Called out to the darkness... it was all in my head
All in my head, all in my head.

Started out so high, but we got so low
While our smiles were wide, our hearts beat slow
And the breeze sung sweetly of summer air
streetlights guarded us down there
casting shadows across the tracks
the sight of the trees and the smell of the grass...
we can never go back
we can never go back.
Track Name: We Let the Shadow In (Acoustic)
On the 23rd of last month, a dangerous wind set in
tried to hide ourselves in the books we read
but the shadow knocked and we let the shadow in...

you can write all you want about this life
using diction as your weapon of choice
but your words won't survive without blood in your heart
and marrow in the bones that frame your spine

Now we're bleary eyed and confused
tied to wires and tubes and screens
and the accolades that are sent down the hall..
the praises keep you awake

goodbye to the light when the hideout came
the winds wouldn't stay away
but relent to the ghost and the weight that it held
when the shadow knocked and we let the shadow in

you can write all you want about this life
using diction as your weapon of choice
but your words won't survive without blood in your heart
and marrow in the bones that frame your spine

you can write all you want about this life
using diction as your weapon of choice
but your words won't survive without blood in your heart
and marrow in the bones that frame your spine
Track Name: Prophet (Acoustic)
They say it can't be done in the time we have
but don't lose hope, or give up now
From atop the hill (what a scenic view) avert your eyes like you never knew

Never wanted to be a prophet.
Give it to me straight, I can handle it.

Now, rest assured, the task at hand is a daunting climb
towards a bare summit.
From atop the hill, what a scenic view...
but avert your eyes like you never knew

Never wanted to be a prophet.
Give it to me straight, I can handle it.
Track Name: Repeat (Acoustic)
Dear friend,
all the hours we have spent, bad news sinking in
our hearts wearing so thin
becoming permanent like the seagulls on your skin.

Dear friend,
I hold faith in all the cards that lay
but tell me where you've gone
don't be away too long.
I just can't comprehend that we will never speak again.

Did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat?

Dear friend,
seems like I just saw you singing, writhing and screaming,
desperate and bleeding.
You were such a passionate young thing.

Dear friend,
I hold faith in all the cards that lay
but tell me where you've gone
don't be away too long.
I just can't comprehend that you will never sing again.

Did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat?
and did know that the words you wrote about a friend in need would so soon repeat?
Repeat, repeat, repeat?
