Track Name: Commonplace
I have been filing away all of these days
I have been reaching this town in the waters I surround

While you’re headed for your safe space
You’re headed for Commonplace

I have been watching this grow, watching out from front row
I have been drowning in faith, drowning in your face

Cuz you’re headed for your safe space
You’re headed for Commonplace

Don’t you know that awake awaits you
When you awake I’ll await you

I have been combing cobwebs for piece of regret
Cuz I have seen promises gold open then close

Cuz you’re headed for your safe space
You’re headed for Commonplace

Awake awaits you
When you awake I’ll await you
Track Name: Black & White
In black & white
In stereo
Coat to ground
The girls around you now
In black & white
In stereo
Coat to ground
The girls around you
They don’t know
What they know
Or how it goes.

(So you)
Shake your head
At the police station
In the end you end up in frustration
Shake your head at
The police station
All your friends said you’d end up
In the basement
Don’t you base it
On what they know

And all your dreams and all your schemes
They’re coming on back to you

Play it back again
Turn it off and then
Dance around in the shadows of the crowd
Till you find
Your state of apprehend
It won’t be there when
You dance around in the apex
Of your mind
You can find
You will

Play it back again
Track Name: High
In the night it all comes out
Out align and down your spine
Don’t get too far ahead
The strings attached they pull you back
The strings attached they pull you back

Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back out alive
Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back high

Tame the wave to behave
The atmosphere won’t let you steer
In the back on the road
You hope you get there unaware
You hope you get there, almost there

Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back out alive
Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back high

In the night it all comes out
Out align and down your spine
Don’t get too far ahead
The strings attached they pull you
They pull you back the strings attached

Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back out alive
Didn’t you think that I was gonna come back
Track Name: I Do
One day I woke up on the other side of the line
Of the line
In my mind I knew I had to try what is right
What is right?
And there’s no more the one who’s reaching mine
When’s the time? Time to try. When’s the time?
Tell me

When’s the right time?

And if you wanna break it
Shuttle up earthquake it
If you wanna break it
I do

One day I woke up on the other side of the line
Of my mind
Yeah in my mind I knew I had to try
What is right when I find
That there’s no more the one who’s reaching mine
When’s the time? The right time. Time to try?
Tell me

When’s the right time?

And if you wanna break it
Shuttle up earthquake it
If you wanna take it
I do
Track Name: The Animal
Cut through
The Animal
Behavior
Oh savor
The blood she leaves you

Draw out
The Animal
Senses
You’re left with
When she leaves you

“Oh oh oh oh” when she calls you, she calls you
She says “oh oh oh oh” when she calls out for you
“Oh oh oh oh” when she calls out, she calls out
She says “Oh oh oh oh” and she calls out for you

Touch now
The Animal
Senses
Your defenses
How they leave you

“Oh oh oh oh” when she comes out, she comes out
She says “oh oh oh oh” when she comes out for you
“Oh oh oh oh” when she comes out, she comes out
She says “Oh oh no no no no” when she comes out for you

Oh oh oh yeah

“Oh oh oh oh” when she wants you, she wants you
She says “oh oh oh oh” when she wants for you
Track Name: Beautiful
Hey you over there
The one with the foot in your mouth
You think you believe what your words are about
In an unwinding road
A blank destitute wall
I crawl across the screen
With the dust I scream

He’s so beautiful
I can’t let go
Flawless and beautiful
What a picturesque show

Hey you over there
The indefinable one
Who and what you are seen when under the gun
Time it marches on
Memories begin to fade
The only thing that seems
Detrimental to our dreams

He’s so beautiful
I can’t let go
Flawless and beautiful
What a picturesque show
Track Name: All I Wanna Do
21 hours ago
When all I could do to say hello to you was a kiss on the face
The lines between the spaces they are in demand
It’s you who took my will then took command
But look at your hand
Look at what the fuck is on your hand

And it’s all I wanna do

A bamboo shade’s been made
An electronic dance of rain that heats up the same way an open wound decays
Is there beauty in this pain?
Oh beauty in the way you know my brain when I look at your face?
I look at your face at the bottom I see faith

And it’s all I wanna do

You’ve got to give it
You’ve got to give it
You’ve got to give it
Come on and take it all
You’ve got give it
Come on and give it
You’ve got to give it
Come on and take it all


Put down the phone and all its charms I wanna be back inside your arms
So big and strong
I like how big you are in the safety of your nave
It’s like a dog that you behave who’s running around
You’re looking around
So look inside this sound

And it’s all I wanna do
Track Name: I'm Not Here
Buildings and the sky
Reflecting modern times
Just one small rope
Rail in the greedy goat

One thing I can say

Care take and above
Angels watching love
Stand down for the roofs
Neon out and in the truth

One thing I can say
I’m not here
You’re not here

Bodies ache
These restless days
Collide to sea cliffs
Accept the rain

One thing I can say:
I’m not here
You’re not here
Track Name: Polar Shift
When I sleep something about you bleeds inside of me
The inlet from above the cliffs
The shape of a mouth that’s just been kissed
The shape of your mouth been kissed

Up where there’s oxygen
Up where there’s hope
The sound of leaving
White noise and gold


On your skin there’s a summer breeze just north of Avalon beach
Flying over water a raccoon rustles low
Dried leaves thrown to the stove
Dried leaves to the stove

Up where there’s oxygen
Up where there’s hope
Sunrise on your face
The distance alone

Running 17 miles a day
I stumble over stubble
People waking up to a shift
The coarse of this ship
Resting in a hollow tree
You will always know how I feel
2 degrees
I am awake
2 degrees

Opening the letter like it’s ticking though
I know it’s me that’ll explode
I know it’s me to explode

Up where there’s oxygen
Up where there’s hope
Something is growing
At the edge of the road
Track Name: In Silence
Do you know what you’re messin with
Do you know just where to begin
To receive the dreams you’re asking for
In Silence

Too close for you to touch
Too far to ever give up
But the boxes hear
A warning clearly
Silent

Brought down to basic
Stripped to the id
Your self-control at the edge of the bridge
Brought down to basic
Stripped to the id
Your self-control at the edge of your skin

So hungry and afraid
Like a beast that has been caged
It is all consuming
In this room
So Silent

Careful now watch your words
As the dissolve out in the world
They are reeling out your tired mouth
Oh Quiet

Brought down to basic
Stripped to the id
So self consumed at the edge of your skin
Brought down to basic
Stripped to the id
Your self-control at the edge of the bridge

Oh Quiet.
