Youth 03:35
Young and restless Blind and numb Drinking our cares away Fingertips on plastic cups But the trouble's here to stay And we drink all night to medicate The things we can't erase Ain't it funny how just yesterday It all seemed so far away? Now you've seen too many yesterdays And tomorrow is today And I'm scared of growing old And I'm scared of getting cold And I'm scared of being average Always doing what I'm told Ain't it funny how just yesterday It all seemed so far away? Now you've seen too many yesterdays And tomorrow is today And I'm scared of growing old And I'm scared of getting cold And I'm scared of being average Always doing what I'm told And I'm scared of growing old And I'm scared of getting cold And I'm scared of being average Always doing what I'm told And I'm scared of being lonely And I'm scared of losing time And I'm scared I'll never make it But it makes me feel alive

Blue 03:14
Sometimes I feel the walls Around me closing in I can feel these demons Clawing at my skin But there’s this beautiful sight Such a beautiful mind Where to begin I have always has the blues It has always been a ruse I have always had the blues Kept it bedside like a muse Oh how I grew to love The taste of cigarettes on your tongue We watched the sun rise I watched it glimmer in your eyes You kissed stars into my skin It made galaxies within I have always has the blues It has always been a ruse I have always had the blues Kept it bedside like a muse

Seasick 02:34
Open my eyes Holding my last breath Never know just what I got into Moving to an endless blue Endless blue Endless blue Crashing into you Sinking deeper I’m seeing clearer And all I see is Only you Moving to an endless blue Endless blue Endless blue Crashing into Endless blue Sinking deeper I’m seeing clearer And all I see is Only you Moving to an endless blue Endless blue Endless blue Crashing into Endless blue

Melancholy 04:04
Pour another cup of coffee As I wait for you to wake Count the raindrops Against the window Or the dripping in the sink Honey wake up it’s morning The TV’s on the fritz again There’s nothing on anyway Another morning Just another day Same old same as always Honey wake up it’s morning Draw the curtains all away Let the light pour in the room Haven’t seen the sun Since yesterday Or maybe since last week Honey wake up it’s morning And this house don’t feel like home But it’s all I’ve ever known This house don’t feel like home Can you please come home Honey wake up it’s morning Honey wake up it’s morning Honey wake up it’s morning Honey wake up it’s morning Honey wake up it’s morning Honey wake up it's morning

Dandelion 04:13
I’ve got a feeling deep down It’s always hanging round You ask me what’s the problem An ache that can’t be found I lie awake and wait it out For you to come around Promise you’ll stay forever Tell me you’ll be around I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how Do you know Do you know now You never liked to do this I’d never let you down Some say they saw it coming But it’s too late by now Can we start over Can we be different Just use the best take You know It’s not too late I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how Do you know Do you know now Don’t you know you’re Wasting all your time What’s the matter It’s just a matter of time I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know how Do you know Do you know now

Barrow 03:13
Can you tell me when the sun sets in Alaska? I’ll be there by tomorrow if I ask her A real disaster There’s nothing like a train ride in the morning She came into my life with no warning And I’m still yawning As day is dawning There’s turbulence inside my brain I think today I went insane “It could have been an itch,” I said “Or a pain I just cannot maintain” When’s the last time the light’s been this bright? How come I can see the end? All the cars around me ignite I walk home through snow on roads and I transcend Have you ever seen the snow fall in Alaska? The seatbelts in the wagon should be fastened I need my glasses I can’t seem to follow your directions There’s no one looking back in my reflection I need protection No recollection

Vulnerable 06:05
You picked me up And let me down What good it is To feel the ground What day is it I’ve lost count What are you crying Crying about And when you’re fast asleep Do you dream Do you dream of me And when you’re fast asleep Do you dream Do you dream of me Do you dream of me But I Wrote your lullaby Cause I Couldn’t see you cry But you Had a long goodbye And I Didn’t ask you why Why, why, why, why It’s a different color In my eyes You try so hard And you give your all How’s it feel Climbing to the sky Just to hit the ground As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by As the time’s gone by

Soul Lever 06:29
I promise you I’m better now Been picked up from falling down I’m not the best pick this I know I think I do it all for show I can see you’re weary now But please trust me to show you how Take a leap of faith and your bow It’s not ideal but the time is now Won't you lift my soul lever? We could ride this train forever We'll tell our loved ones goodbye And pay the fees when we die Won't you ease my soul tremor? You could freeze my whole dilemma I've got the sun in my eyes And feeble time for goodbyes Can you see me better now I’m up here, you’re on the ground Out of sight and not a sound But I promise you I’m better now Won't you lift my soul lever? We could ride this train forever We'll tell our loved ones goodbye And pay the fees when we die Won't you ease my soul tremor? You could freeze my whole dilemma I've got the sun in my eyes And feeble time for goodbyes Won't you lift my soul? Won't you lift my soul? Won't you lift my soul? Won't you lift my soul?
