Track Name: Invest
Wake in sudden dreams
Awake in a place where familiar shapes seem secondary
Almost incomplete

I could see a place
A love or a light in the dark where the past is half erased
Only in my dreams
Track Name: The Wound
Somebody died across the street today in the neighbourhood
And something clicked inside that I'd been
Rolling like a stone towards a goal that I had never seen before
And it had plans of doing damage

I'm getting far too old to be waiting around for a love that may be lost

Somebody turned around and sized me up in a couple words
I woulda shrugged it off but I'd been wondering the same about myself
Since I have no way to reflect on if my plans are doing damage

It's getting far too late to be waiting around for a dream that may be dead
Track Name: Baby You're Blind
I would've thought by now it be time
But that was a wonderful dream
And this is reality, baby blue

The wind should've caught by now, out the sea
Floating around in the harbour
Tethered to you like a lifeboat now

My God, it's freezing
And all of the reason you could find
Did nothing but tease me
I thought you could see me

But baby you're blind as I am
'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm
We'll be aimlessly drifting alone

I would've thought by now you'd be here
But maybe you're over the hill
Treading a parallel line to me

Where did I get this gaudy belief;
Reality owes me a favour
and God should've made me a starring lead

I thought of leaving
But all of the reason I could find did nothing but tease me
I thought it was easy
I guess I was blind
Yes I am
'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm
I'll be patiently waiting alone

Shooting a gun at the stars
Call it a stab in the dark
Showing that I could depart
All these frozen pieces

Building a home of debris
Making a map of the sea
Written on what I believed
When you came and showed me

---

But baby you're blind as I am
'Til the day that they close up their doors in alarm
We'll be aimlessly drifting alone
Track Name: The Pack
Thinking about the young cubs in the forest
Where he watched them rise and fall
It's seldom anyone here makes it out at all

Just outside the city he stops by the rover
He peaks across the freeway and stares into the sun
He says, "I've got every reason to run while I'm wounded
But you would say I'm weaker than the pack where I belong"

Wake me in the morning with the feeling
That the slate's been cleaned once again
Oh, I've been travelling and thinking through the night

Just outside the building he hears people talking
These aliens have never felt like family before
He says, "I've got every reason to stay in my hotel
But you would say I'm weaker than the pack where I belong"

Wait on this ride 'til it sails off it's tracks or makes it's entrance
I mean all I say
All this time you told me
Wait on this ride 'til it sails off it's tracks or makes it's entrance
I mean all I say
All this time you told me so
Track Name: Billy's Courage
We move away
We smell the bacon cooking
God knows I can change
Became allergic to the Kool-Aid
You can stick that God damn paper up your ass
I never signed it anyway
I'd love for you to see me act my age

Hold me to my word
I'm an affirmation fueled testosterone machine
Wide eyes in a wide world
I can wait
Oh, I can wait
But I don't know how much longer I can wait for

We move away
We leave them talking
Leave the broom against the door
I'm making money, having sex and starting arguments
Who does he think he is?
You know, I never liked him any way
I guess he doesn't live here anymore

Hold me to my word
I'm a newly liberated slice of cherry pie
Wide eyes in a wide world
I can change
Oh, I can change
But I don't know how much longer I can change for

Special forces intervene
Special forces
I still don't know what you mean
But of course it's a long long way from the genes I have

Suicide and alcohol
Depression and resentment
I'm lucky to have made it out so clean
I'm lucky to've made it out as me
Track Name: The Size Of Things To Come
Oh, once you were fast asleep
Once you were dead to the world
I stubbornly wanted you never to change
No, now that you're far away
I want to incarcerate your love
Oh, never to change darling

I could give my life to you
Sever all my limbs and wear your cybernetic arms
And move better than before
That's about the size of things to come

Oh, well I get these feelings now
When I see you harvesting me up from out of the ground
No angel should look like this
Changing trajectory from day to day to day, darling

I could trust my eyes to you
Sever all connections to the feelings that I made
When I was so afraid
That's about the size of things to come
Track Name: The Grand Ol' Market
Majestic silver crown
Thin castle walls
Did Sarah say why she called?

10,000 miles away
12 years too soon
I'm stranded in debt to you

What are you doing when you're older?
Do you contribute to The Grand Ol' Market?
We want to see you looking stronger
We've got a feeling about you

Congratulations you two
I laughed all night
Free service my candle light

I hardly mentioned how
You changed my mind
They can't see what they can't find

What are you doing when you're older?
Do you contribute to The Grand Ol' Market?
We want to see you looking stronger
I've got a feeling about you
Track Name: Ordinary Pain
If I could get a message in time to you
I'd faulter at every line
Mary at the table
But just behind the smile something is broken
Never you mind the time

If you need a helping hand
You know where you can find your brother

I'm sorry
Times can be hard
And ordinary pain can feel like violence
I'm driving
Staring at the stars
Hoping you could see the love more than the pain

If I could find a moment to start again
I wonder what I would ammend
I know you took that journey away from me
But I am fully aware of what you are doing there

If you need a helping hand
You know where you can find your brother
I'm sorry
Times can be hard
And ordinary pain can feel like violence
I'm driving
Staring at the stars
Hoping you could see the love more than the pain

---

I'm sorry
Times can be hard
And ordinary pain can feel like violence
I'm driving
Staring at the stars
Hoping you could see the love more than the pain
Track Name: Fugitives
Several times in my wretched life
I have taken pills which made me small
Wandering eyes at the best of times
Oh, it’s miracle we met at all

Oh, looking at you makes me realise I’ve never loved at all

Oh, I could fall into open arms
And be paralysed, oh just the same If you break under scrutiny
Then I will buy you wigs and change your name
We’ll live life on the run
And you told me once that you would do the same
Track Name: It's The Least I Could Do (Revisited)
Like a limp paper bag
I lay down next to you
Is this just what we do
Pass it on to somebody new

I got carried away
There's a first time for everything
Maybe they've stolen our fire
And passed it on to somebody new

It didn't happen 'til now
Been under spells all of my life
So I can tell
These different colours we choose
They make me look like somebody new

I started out with the best intentions
And now it's easier to offer myself
I started losing my best intentions
But now it's easier to offer myself
And now it's easier to offer myself

Like the island we need
I stayed harboured to you
It's the least I could do
