Track Name: Silent Sleeper
silent sleeper don't wake to the beat of this drum
your eyes are the keepers of the blood and the air in your lungs
it's nice to meet you but I don't wanna greet you that way
you're an innovator and a comrade with something to say

listen to the words and hear what I'm trying to say
you are not a bird so you can't just fly away
never meant to cage you like that
I don't wanna keep you from the path that your god has lain

silent sleeper don't wake to the sound of this gun
your ears are the holders of the words in the mouth of your son

you'll be laughing when it all just fades away
think it's so cryptic but it's just another day
never meant to treat you like that
I am just rat that's addicted to the things that you say
Track Name: Beginner
beginner your chest is glass and I can see your heart
not knowing our evil past, no burden from the start
so just in case you don't know, you'll find out

this world was not made for you, your fragile little heart
your dreams they will not come true as your body falls apart
so just in case you don't know, you'll find out

so just in case you don't know, you're in for a ride
don't be afraid to let go, just take it in stride
like walking through a thick smoke, you can't see from inside
life is just a sick joke where only devils reside
so just in case you don't know, you'll find out

so just in case you don't know, you're in for a ride
don't be afraid to let go, just take it in stride
like walking through a thick smoke, you can't see from inside
life is just a cruel joke where only devils reside
Track Name: Sun
be nice, my mother taught me some great advice but I preach too well
co-signed into our problems, she gave me life and I gave her hell

no choice, persona adopted, covered with a sheet so they can’t peer inside
your voice sounds like your father’s, your eyes are mirrors and your words divine

you’re not your mother’s son, you’re the chosen one

two halves that are complete, we are the outcome of the bittersweet
all thought and all the action gives way to new lives and true compassion
be brave, my father taught me great advice but he don’t preach too well
no line that’s not worth crossing, simple enough to know you’ve lived through hell

you’re not your mother’s son
you’re not your father’s son
you’re not your mother’s son, you’re the chosen one
Track Name: Handbrake
your rage in an idle car pressed on the handbrake with your arm
my face after you throwing fists, caught by the moment and watching you drift
you chased me down when I wanted to run, knot in my stomach while you're crushed by a ton
you kept me locked away when I wanted to leave but justice came swiftly and your punishment free

swelling on your foot, I could barely look
frozen in your neighbor's yard looking defeated and scarred

you cried when the ambulance came, police took my number and name
you drugged on a hospital bed, I sat there wishing that you meant what you said
still smelled a hint of the drink on your breath, you spoke of survival while I replayed your death
you tested your limits and you lost it that night, falling from grace such a horrible sight

blood smeared on the seat, legs like dripping meat
now I know you bleed, image of defeat
swelling on your foot, I could barely look
broken in the hospital bed, clothes with stains of red
Track Name: Mystic
creature of all of my nightmares has manifest itself
within the ruins of my old bedspread, up in my bloated head
river bends and we come quietly into the deep sleep
current will drag, we will not struggle, simply remain at peace

I want to learn the ancient secrets kept within this particle of dust
remove myself from all my demons, see the light that's right in front of us

body of water, it doesn't move an inch
mellowing out, motoring onward, watching our monitors
tangible, on our horizon we see them rising
far from their homes, far from the hustle, far from the heavy tones

I want to learn the ancient secrets kept within this particle of dust
remove myself from all my demons, see the light that's right in front of us

lost it all to the great mother, the one that watches all
heavy crawl out of the forest looking for nourishment
elements made up of atoms, inherently balanced
marking a trail into the tundra, the lost will find a way
Track Name: Heaven
better fill the tank before we hit the road
you won't need your coat, where we're headed won't be cold
somewhere there's a sign, but it won't be no sign of mine
we know the sun won't always shine

heaven is a place where everyone is not who they seem
taking up a dream and letting go of everything
heaven is a thought buried in the back of our mind
fall and you are caught by the promise of a hell behind

heaven is tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes
Track Name: Castle
it's waiting outside with a butcher's knife to skin me alive and I don't want trouble tonight
so I close the blinds and I stay inside, the relative fear of you being near tears at my pride
then it's at my door like a pair of Mormons trying to convince me that there is a heaven
it's a weight on my back keeping me down, it's a feeling I lack when you're not around
keep my nose to the ground so I won't disurb you, cause you're sleeping sound, still carrying virtue
then it's at my door like girl scouts selling cookies, trying to sell me a box of the flavor I'm missing
love is a circle where everyone wins but I'm on the outside counting my sins
love is a painting that I don't understand
thought all of this pain would make me a man but here I am crying with my face in my hands
love is a castle made out of sand
I've gone and destroyed it, I stomped it out
maybe I can rebuild it but I have my doubts
Track Name: Blue
if I were a snail, I’d have no shell
if I had a tale, I’d tell it well

if I had some light, I might grow
if I was right, I wouldn’t know

if I was worthy of being loved
right hand won’t fit the left handed glove

if you were a knife, I’d be a gun
if this was a game, I’d say I won
if you were a bird, you’d be blue
if I was a pet, I’d follow you

if I was worthy of being loved
right hand won’t fit the left handed glove

if this was a song it’d be about you
so tell me I’m wrong, tell me what do I do?
