Track Name: 6/8 Heart Break
v1:
Seven times I was listening,
but never heard a refrain.
I can't be your silhouette tonight.

Looking for a warm shoulder,
but never asked reasons why.
I can't be your anything this time.

You know it goes over and over again.

ch:
I can't be your heartache,
I won't be your fool.
All I want are some answers,
and all I need is the truth.
You know...it's all right.

v2:
Every time I come back here,
it's more and more of the same.
I can't be your stepping stone tonight.

I don't know where your heads at,
and I don't care to pretend.
I can't be your punching bag tonight.

You know it goes over and over again.

ch:
I can't be your heartache,
I won't be your fool.
All I want are some answers,
and all I need is the truth.
You know...it's all right.
Track Name: Fear Never Sings
v1:
I don't know why but fear never sings,
it holds onto hope and buries my flesh deep.

The fear that is left will toll on my skin,
scattering marks it proves I can still feel regret.

I figured my strength would carry us through,
witnessed the trail it left in your minds wake.

ch1:
I held you cup but came up dry.
I worshipped you but, and in turn, let you down.
I'll bear the weight and wish you well.

v2:
You shocked them all with penance so deep,
simply to burn while hiding in your hands.

I don't see pride or blood on your face,
only burden that haunts every four walls you see.

But you're patient for time to carry you though,
trusting the wealth of things that you can't see.

ch2:
You held my cup but came up dry.
You worshipped me, and in turn, let me down.
You beared the weight and you wished me well.

br:
I don't need your lines...

ch3:
I held your cup but came up dry.
You worshipped me, and in turn, let me down.
I'll bear the weight and I'll wish you well...

o:
I don't know why but fear never sings,
it holds onto hope to bury my voice deep...
Track Name: Open Eyes
v1:
Open eyes I see the shape of you.
Sometimes I guess I can't focus in.
Save some time, let's take a ride and talk.
Forgetting all I know let's start from scratch.

ch 1:
Tell me everything you've thought of after your first breath.
Knowing that I'll be there.
Knowing that we'll be made strong.
Serenade me with the wonderment of all your faults.
I won't believe it's all for naught.
I get knocked down.

v2:
Don't hold your breath or yourself back, your fine.
You always wanted it so real, so don't hold out.
Cause severed parts hold meaning too, I swear.
Now and always I want all of you.

ch 2:
Tell me everything you've thought of after your first breath.
Knowing that I'll be there.
Knowing that we'll be made strong.
Serenade me with the wonderment of all your doubts.
I won't believe it's all for naught.
I get knocked down.
Track Name: Nurse Tisdale
v1:
You taught me how live, but I've shown you traces.
I'll admit that I'm ashamed as I see time escape.

ch1:
I know I've been here too long, but I can't hold my breath anymore.
So tell me everything I know I should have asked you before, oh Lord.

v2:
I asked you for the cure and I got what I asked for.
You showed me to the bowels and I can't turn away.

ch2:
So tell me everything I know I should have asked you before.
You said that you could move on because you showed the world who you are.

ch3:
I kinda figured I hold onto this one last note from you.

You showed me everything from anything I've wanted to know and I thank you.

So when it's time to move on make sure you've shown the world who you are.
Track Name: Lavender Gooms
v1:
I walked through the door and i took my last breath,
how would I know that this would end in death.

...and I clutched...boy, did I beg...
I held the door but my love, she would not wait.

ch:
I know one day I'll say to you...
(yeah,) maybe you were right.

Right now I'll mend this heart, my soul...
I will be whole.

v2:
I walked down to spit in the run.
Thought of my dreams and just what I'd become.

I saw and I ran, you know I hid from the sane.
It'll take some time, my friend, but I will be okay.

ch:
I know one day I'll say to you...
(yeah,) maybe you were right.

Right now I'll mend this heart, my soul...
I will be whole.

v3:
I stare at the wall, you know I won't give you the day.
I'll burn it all down and I won't hide from fate.

But I'll sit down and rewind my head,
I'll salvage the parts that won't haunt this bed.
Track Name: Take 5 In Three
v1:
Find the man who cries on the mountain defeating his pride,
soul drenched in his own tears.

Head raised high...his head raised so high, he's screaming up to heaven,
"Please take this chance from me."

Tell me where you want me to be and I'll be today,
chalk up a victory.

The sky can be...the sky can be such a wide open place,
for all your thoughts to be known.

ch:
I don't want you here my love,
I've seen what I have become.

But I'll stand tall knowing that I will be made whole.

I will be made whole...I will be made whole.
Track Name: Ovaltine Jenkins
v1:
"Take it back, take it back" her head screams when her heart sang,
"Make it okay. You know this is your dream."

(Your) nights spent waiting to sleep. I woke up just wondering if you,
gave it up, you gave it up. Your dreams have outlived you.

ch:
I witnessed you.
Fall away in that moment.
Crashing and burning for someone to come...
but you don't need them, trust me.

v2:
Let it go, let it go, these thoughts are nooses.
You think they're guiding your way,
but closer and tighter just aren't the same.

Intent made it okay, (but) the outcome shows what's at stake as you,
sacrifice, you sacrificed...you're whole life just passed by.

ch:
I witnessed you.
Fall away in that moment.
Crashing and burning for someone to come...
but you don't need them, trust me.

ch:
I witnessed you.
Fall away in that moment.
Crashing and burning for someone to love...
but you don't need them, trust me.
Track Name: Rich Fingerland (aka Bob Adams) w/ Popeye
v1:
It's been two nights and I need need a range of mind-dividers,
when I can't escape.

You asked for an answer but I'm holding reasons,
I never could decide.

ch:
And I wonder where you'll go,
and I wonder where you'll stay.

br:
September skies witnessed hope take a stand.
In searching for the words to make things right.
It's all yours, for your heart to bleed.
With broken thoughts and eyes opened wide.

ch:
And I wonder where you'll go,
and I wonder where you'll stay.
And I wonder where you'll go,
and I know that you'll...

v2:
...keep searching for answers pending truth's desire,
it's in your blood.
Find solace that in time you'll find her when it's written,
wisdom, (she) holds the page.
Track Name: Longbranch Pennywhistle
v1:
All I needed today was a place I could mourn.
Cause I've witnessed too much.
Only time tells the truth.

I want you back,
but only if you'll show,
you want it, this change.
You need it, this shame,
to grow.

ch1:
Waiting but fading,
I'll call your bluff.
You spit in the face of all that you might love, I'm told.
(Help me I'm trying I beg of you, show me the way.)

v2:
All I've wanted to say is,
I hope this isn't our last goodbye.
Cause you don't see my heart break,
or the look of my eyes.

I need you back,
but only if you'll say,
"I want it, this way,
I'll take it this shame,
and I'll grow."

ch2:
I still see your beauty,
but don't tempt me with hope.
You'll bury me deeper I wonder,
could love conquer all.
(Help me I'm trying I beg of you, show me the way.)

Tell me you're still here,
cause your eyes scream,
"Trust me, I'm trying, I beg of you...show me the way, I'm broke."
Track Name: Ghee Buttersnaps
v1:
What if this all way a dream?
Would it make things easier?
What if you woke up?
Would that feeling still be there?
What would you learn this time?

ch1:
Would it all come crashing down?
Stumble and feel your heart give out.
There in the ground you'll draw the line,
and define just who you are.

v2:
Take just the time that it needs.
Your decision is the point.
Your choice to stand up,
not to wallow in despair.
Now look what you've leaned this time.

ch2:
And when it all comes crashing down.
Stumble but know you've seen the light.
There in the ground you won't see fear.
And it defines just who you are.
Track Name: Henny Penny
v1:
You asked me where I've been...oh, no.
My head just spoke too much tonight.
All I need is one more chance, I'll be fine.

Truth is I've seen these roads before.
My eyes race to follow all the turns.
I can't tell which one leads home.

ch:
Cause my mind just stores the ways it goes wrong.
I can't escape the weight if I fail.

But I've held the sky up for one more day.
You know I'll lie in my bed once it's made.
(but) I'm so tired...

v2:
I'm paralyzed, I can't see through today.
Maybe I just need to learn to breath.
I don't remember it all being so hard.

I'll judge myself much harsher than you'll know.
Boxed up, quiet and sitting on my own.
The sword swings and I just wait.

ch:
Cause my mind just stores the ways it goes wrong.
I can't escape the weight if I fail.

But I've held the sky up for one more day.
You know I'll lie in my bed once it's made.
