Track Name: Dreaming About The Sea
Would you jump off this sinking ship, if I told you?
Would you jump into the dark, if I asked you?
How long can I stand, staring out this foggy window,
Dreaming about the sea?

I wish that this was home
A place I can call my own
Words can never hurt, without your sticks and stones
I can feel the tension building in my bones it feels like,

Home

There’s a place down by the meadow,
Where you can sit and dream for days
When the rain and storms would come,
You’d have a place to stay

Feels like home
Feels like home
Track Name: Two Weeks
Windows growing darker in the evening, as the sun goes down.
Will you come and wash away this smile, come wash away this frown.
Sleep like death and wake like life has just begun.
Drive away beyond the sun, to places where your dreams can run.

Call me in the morning and we can talk about the truth.
Fairytales and whimsical ideas, of things you’d never know.
We used to sit and feed the ducks,
or drive around in that old pickup truck
Do you remember?
Times have changed, the leaves are gone,
But dear I’m here to see the rising sun.
Track Name: Lungs
Right above my head, there’s an ocean.
Right above my head, a happy notion.

Walk into the sea, feels the waves below my feet,
Slow and sad, my eyes and water meet.
They call it simple peace, to rest under the waves,
No need to eat or breathe, no need to spend and save.

It’s time for me to go,
Where no one needs to know.

Right above my head, there’s an ocean.
Right above my head, there’s an ocean.

She said she’d stick with me, and I believed her,
But like the tide she left, like we never were.
So now I’ll save my lungs for my own heart,
Beating its final show, its done it’s part.

It’s time for me to go.
Where no one needs to know.

Right above my head, there’s an ocean.
Right above my head, there’s an ocean.
Track Name: The Distance Above and Below

Track Name: Wicker Chair
Empty wicker chair, creaking old stairs, and a film of dust.
Over my heart, beyond the window, your high heel soles.
Crash down on me, it was only time what comes now came.
Like moon and sun, I go up you down in a fiery sky.

That blue can pierce you through, that dance will break the truth.

We were dancing, you were smiling, laughing at yourself.
Your face was drenched, your hair was soaked, your makeup ran.

That blue can pierce you through, that laugh will get you every time.
Track Name: Angel Hair
Don’t want to scream until my lungs bleed.
Follow you to the corridor, where your eyes lead.
Trip up on words for a hundredth time.
Find out when your heart is mine.

I’m waking up in my bowl of cereal.
Sleep’s been hiding from me far too long.
Following hallucinations,
Of serenity into my bedroom door.

Don’t wanna be a fool, chasing after dreams.
Don’t wanna be a fool, running in the streets and chasing all the cars.

Watched you rip open your ribcage,
Your heart poured out like angel hair.
Watched your eyes flutter open,
Dripping sorrow to the ground.

Don’t wanna be a fool, chasing after dreams.
Don’t wanna be a fool, running in the streets and chasing all the cars.

Don’t let me find you, chasing after me.
Don’t let me find you, chasing after me.
