Track Name: Fragile Egg
This might be my greatest day.
Skies are just my shade of gray.
Standing in line for a piece of the pie Now we’re shaking our tails.
Out on our own got our heads held high and we’re setting our sails

My friend got stopped on the side of the road.
Feel sorry for me I’ve got miles to go.
Holding back tears summer sun is here and I’m dry as a bone.
Looking away nothing more to say now that I’m all alone.
All Alone.

Nothing good comes from worry.
Pulling ourselves out of everything.
Life flashes by me like a dream.
Still waiting for emotion to come from me.
Track Name: Penny
Number eleven on the list of billions.
Flew his plane in the Grand Tetons.
Another victim of a vicious attack.
Family wishes time could be taken back
It looks like fate just laughed in their face.

Moldy walls of trailers coming down.
We eat raccoons with chopsticks underground.

Number two on their list of children.
Got swallowed up in the Atlantic Ocean.
Another victim of a vicious attack.
Family wishes time could be taken back.
It looks like fate just laughed in their face.

Moldy walls of trailers coming down.
We eat raccoons with chopsticks underground.

Bring them back dear God bring them back.
Bring them back Oh God why don’t you bring them back.
Bring them back well some god will bring them back.
Her eyes are floating to me, the deepest deep blue sky.
They’re making me shake.
Track Name: Casual Yellow
I’ve got friends in trashcans down on the corner.
They’re as mad as badgers doused with cold water.

Walking around in my casual yellow
Walking around in my casual yellow

I used to think that I could do better.
Burt where'd you put my white striped sweater?

ABC, 123, you learned it from me.
Look at you, a real sweet tooth, you’re chomping on cookies.

Walking around in my casual yellow.
Walking around in my casual yellow.
Track Name: Backspaces
For you....
For you...
For you...
For you...

I’m 12 minutes of your time
I’m a nerve, I’m a nerve that you want to disappear
Count your blessings, or just never mind.
It’s aright, I’m alright, I’m floating in this space

with you...
with you
with you
I’ll be with you.

Unhook your line and just give it time
It’s a blessing it’s a curse when they put you on display.
I take your hand and make it mine
You know it’s time, it’s time
to choose.
Or lose

For you...
For you...
For you...
For you...
Track Name: Traveling Stairs
As we travel down these stairs filled with cigarette butts
You tell me what you’ve been thinking I tell you I’ve had enough
Looking in the mirror the reflections seem to match
The image that we hold so dear and the shimmer that it lacks

I’ll still hold the sun up til the evening starts to knock
On the nightly door of blindness when you cannot find the lock
I’ll still drive you home in that bitter loving cold
Some things I heard about you were better left untold.

As I’m driving down these streets paved with silver and gold
I tell you what I’ve been thinking you tell me what you’ve been told Looking in the rearview mirror the reflection doesn’t match
The image that we hold onto and feeling that it lacks

I’ll still hold the sun up until the evening starts to knock
On that nightly door of blindness when we cannot find the lock
I’ll still drive you home we’re slowly growing old
Some things I feel about you are better left untold

You always fell asleep
Before my favorite song
Home we’re halfway there
But tomorrow I’m moving out.
Track Name: Trusting People
It looks like we all made it
Through everything we all hated
Let’s take some time to pretend
How we’ll have it wrapped it up, up, up In the palm of our hands
It starts slipping though our fingers

One too many times you’ve lost trust in people
You’ll feel like a camera Flipping though the frames again

It looks like they left without you
You’re begging for someone to hold onto
Just take some time and you’ll forget
All the thoughts, thoughts, thoughts that are echoing in your head
I hope to see you when we’re inside

Oh so many times we’ve lost trust in people
They’ll reinvent the standard Then they’ll flip it back again
Of all those many times we’ve seen trust in people
They’ll tear us up inside But we’ll feel like gods again.
Track Name: Sweet One
Well I hope
...and I hope

I’d say by this time
you’ll see her floating in the rain
If you don’t, I guess she already sank
Well I drove my wife to the river side
And, the drink you know it washed her all way
But, I’d rather have it end another way

and, I hoped

And we’ll walk, all that talk
About our lives, and our pain
Just so we’d have a chance to get away
Then I saw his face, through a window frame
It was then, when I lost all my faith in you
But now what else did you expect me to do?
Just hope?
