Castles! 03:11
Looked outside today and thought of you The grass is getting long and the trees are in bloom Then I remember that you're coming home soon You are coming, never too soon He is leaving, yellow lines and hearts It takes a lionshare to get through the start But it takes a lamb to fall apart at the mention that maybe this ain't too smart But we are not believers But we are not to blame Time these days is going fast I find myself becoming more fond of the past Then I remember how it's hard to relax, always asking how long a good thing lasts Cos we are not believers But we are not to blame We are not believers And we are not to blame

Doorsteps 02:29
It was six o'clock when I found out you died What was I supposed to say? I got off the phone, went upstairs and I cried Forty years had gone away Now we're gathered round the photos of children smiling and laughing Times better than these And we are caught without intention No one's here to show us how it's supposed to be I got off a quarter after nine and headed over straight away On a crowded subway thought I overheard, "did you read the stats today?" Now we're gathered round the photos of children smiling and laughing Times better than these And we are caught without intention No one's here to show us how it's supposed to be And we could not prepare for darkness to fall upon our doorsteps And we could not prepare for darkness to fall upon our doorsteps And we could not prepare for darkness to fall upon our doorsteps

How long will this go on He is fading, death in waiting Old man sitting in his chair Morrie can't walk but he talks to me Ten brown soldiers in their white caps They make rest come fast, but it never lasts With six months left he is teaching us that just cos you're dying never give up trying to love And maybe all we need is someone to come home to I watch him slip away Body shrinking but his mind's still thinking With all the knowledge of the future clear He'll stick it out tonight but how long will he fight? And maybe all we need is someone to come home to? And we all can't help but stand around and we hope that time will just take him down So that this man can just go on with his mindset clear and regrets all gone

Lover I know, this time it's real Bare bones spread out I just want to heal So pick off my flesh, it's all I have left Take what you need, don't worry about me I've done all I can and I cannot stand To sacrifice myself for another man You've proven me right, too many nights I think I deserve to give myself some time No where do we go We've all lost our way Self deprecation becoming okay So throw out your hand and drag me to land I'm under the ocean, beneath rocks and sand

Can you see the martyr, he is crying He is believing all that's left unsaid And the girl in the red dress, she is dying They found her body underneath the tracks But the bells on the hill, they keep tolling Seeking solace for the souls they've left behind And the man on the radio reinstating "What's the point of laughing if you're lying?" And we are not scared of time No we are not scared this time Oh the prodigal sons, they've got opinions They've got an answer for every occasion But the man on the tv always saying, "Don't believe the devil while he's praying" And we are not scared of time No we are not scared this time And we are not scared of time No we are not scared this time

Lost Parts 03:19
Let's go to my place, we'll find shelter there The big one is coming, we'd better prepare This won't take long, let's just be strong I ran from the desert, with rocks on my feet I couldn't run fast enough I'll admit my defeat These lost parts of me now Where have they gone? Where's my garden of Eden? Cos that's where I belong. And you told us we would be the last of the millions to die So please hold us as I take one last breath This won't take long Let's just be strong

On the Basis 02:11
Hello Mister, I've seen those eyes before Crawl into my bed dear, come in through the back door You said you craved a change of pace I'll rearrange my sheets for you if you love me too Morning sunshine, you've caught us yet again Thought we covered all the bases with our salty, sweaty sin You asked me to explain why our love had felt so strange Oh baby let it be, slide your doubt off for me... And the hours add up and the days they die With the time we spent picking up our lives And the night grows long And the fear sets in for the next reprise When the girl you love can't dry her eyes And the night grows long And the fear grows strong I don't want to be wrong I don't want to be wrong

In Flight 02:54
Gave you a gift you couldn't return Took a shot at the sun but I got burned Maybe it was my turn To know how it felt to yearn For a love that took years and years to earn I caught the eye of the man in the hat Tried to offer my peace but he wasn't taking that Shaking his fist at my perseverance, or my lack, At believing this is this and that is that. I was raised in this life without the light I made friends with the wolves who prowled in the night Maybe it the fight that kept me out of sight Hoping to catch a single bird in flight

Oh Humility 02:47
The water's washed away the dryspell We couldn't ask for more But I'm waiting to see if you're waiting for me The ocean's blue, the sky's beyond my thoughts That I may never subscribe these inhibitions To someone else's revelation Cos the signs are in the sweat that's dripping down your back Oh humility, you're coming under attack Stretching our absolution, I prepare to seal the resignation But I'm waiting to see if you're waiting for me Cos the signs are in the sweat that's dripping down your back Oh humility, you're coming under attack Oh humility, you're coming under attack

Mermaids 02:03
Don't stop Bad times Just pause, rewind Close my eyes and take my hand Face to face we understand, understand Mindset, age waits Love is commonplace Hear my voice and say with me "we can care and still be free" I feel so tall when I'm with you Tip toes and all, I never feel small We found red hearts beating fast I want this to last, I want this to last
