It takes a worrying mind To tick every symptom off of a check list It takes an illness in bed To romanticise the simplest things It takes a real pursuit of a life To make a living that's humble I've got 1000 degrees on my feet And I'm trying to walk I've got a lot on my mind And I think that the worst of it's dead weight I've got a hole in my soul That I think might be easily fixed I've got a few other cliches I'm milking in the name of my fear's sake I've got a wallet of currency no one is willing to take I get afraid that my dreams will appear to have a negative meaning I get afraid that my songs will deteriorate over time I'm afraid of an obstacle blocking my way to the future I've got a bike on vertical hill that I'm trying to ride

Gratitude 03:03
And so I stop just like I was told To do and I land without a sound Inside my room exactly where I am Each time the truth reveals itself and If you can stop for an hour (can I have another one?) This cloud is always for sale And I never would've known I was so mistaken 'Till I looked the other way Assume the worst just like had learnt Last year although I never stopped to be Just be, no more But have I have I really grown? Not me, I've just had my time alone If you can stop for an hour (can I have another one?) This cloud is always for sale And I never would've known I was so mistaken 'Till I looked the other Way (way too) too soon to see (way too soon to see) I'm still falling endlessly 'Till we fall in the same field You know where I'll be If you can stop for an hour (can I have another one?) This cloud is always for sale If you can stop for an hour (can I have another one?) This cloud is always for sale And I never would've known I was so mistaken 'Till I looked the other Until I looked the other way

Spotlight 01:54
I'm not afraid of an expectation I'm just afraid of the fear itself I feel the tension in fluctuation This can't be good for my health Wealth Self Stealth Undercover again I'm spotlight dodger And Roger again under hot knife Running away from a shadow, a ghost on the wall Do you hear that ball rolling? Do you feel that fear every hour? Washing on in like a shore, shore, shore Sure, real if I feel it swimming in head space Real if I cast it out? I'm not afraid of an explanation I'm just grateful that you're here Feeding me well with a new sensation Helping me more with my fear Late in the evening Small vibrations shuddering down my spine Through a guitar and a nice computer Letting you see my sign Mind Fine Line Undercover again I'm spotlight dodger And Roger again under hot knife Running away from a shadow, a ghost on the wall Do you feel that ball rolling? Do you feel the light every hour? Washing the fear like a shore, shore, shore Sure, it's real if I stir the waters and displace Water as dark as coal

Summer Reign 03:18
Flush the fashion out Out of my mind and be blind Blind progression I have no sight of the Future, past just now Carry me and bury me and let me see my summer reign Over me I've been given one thing: Moments inside of a dream And now I'm drifting Same things that I've always seen But still I say Carry me and bury me and let me see my summer reign Sat by the sea Sat on benches That's you and me Miles between What does it mean? Are we prevented From sharing a dream Miles between The future, past and now Carry me and bury me and let me see my summer reign Over me Future, past and now Carry me and bury me and let me see my summer reign Over me Sat by the sea (sat by the sea) Sat on benches (sat on the benches) Miles between (miles between) That's you and me What does it mean? (what does it mean) Are we prevented (sharing a dream) From sharing a dream Miles between (Miles between)

Mama Chin's 03:05
My friend fear is teaching me a couple of lessons Might end here Or maybe I don't know Got me standing in the rainfall Got waiting for the call Got me pinning things together I don't understand at all I am here But childish in the way I throw stones Might make tea Or maybe have a chinese takeaway No, you steer I'm driving in the wrong direction Almost there This map is growing all the time Beat me to the queue at lunchtime Did you grab me there? I don't know Is it real or just delusion? Will it ever let me go? My friend fear Is misleading every time I imagine All I fear Is the worst that it could be I accept it may have happened All I want is to be free Got me worrying and thinking Anxiety's a cloud of dust And if your track record's to go by Then you're something I can't trust

Dial Tone 02:24
Caribbean summers don't last all your round Silence has to end for there to be sound So I spoke into the dial tone: 'You don't know who I've become' Night is sitting on my chest until the dawn I can't answer any question 'till it's gone So I spoke into the dial tone: 'You don't know what I can do' Look ahead and see exactly what happened to me And learn to be stronger in visible ways

Two Wolves 03:58
There's a battle in my headspace Between two hungry wolves that I raised On the left I see my strong soul On the right I right my itching wolf comes Trying to take control Speak how you want to Live how you want to If I feed you now in silence Will you grow to eat me whole? And if I leave you to die here Will you ever let me go? There's a struggle in my mind now Far removed from what's inside now You'll be probably be the first to hear this Every night my imagination goes wild Swimming in your pool Speak how you want to Live how you want to If I feed you now in silence Will you grow to eat me whole? If I leave you now to die here Will you ever let me go?
