Kismet 01:11
Kismet Sing in your chains like the sea if you’re torn cleave to me as we build, as we breathe, as we love, as we leave
2.
Lights 03:03
Lights Come Down When the lights come down today On the set and the stage They sing youth’s eternity And the hard returning Like a sunset starving gray I want your return to me In the teeth of what will be To be standing, singing I can’t wait for the lights come down Signal me something I can’t wait the lights come down Get back to living As the lights come down today Walk along the edge of age On the subject and the scene How much you still wanted I can’t wait for the lights come down Signal me something I can’t wait the lights come down Get back to living Stretch me across the evening Brace me to go again Headlights of my stage dreaming Blinding me again Let’s go, let’s wake…

Hey Helen 03:57
Hey Helen Hey Helen, your heart’s been stolen Things just weren’t up to you Hey Helen, the gods are guilty Didn’t know what the boys would do but when you look like that brings out all the bad makes me want to shake the walls They’ll sail a thousand ships for you Before you’ll learn how to be true Hey Helen it’s not my business to say what a girl should be Hey Helen but all their choices add up to catastrophe but when you look like that brings out all the bad makes me want to shake the walls They’ll sail a thousand ships for you Before you’ll learn how to be true Ten years in the ground for you A little love that never blooms Hey Helen, I’ve always wanted To love the unattainable Hey Helen, just how painful Is it to be beautiful? but when you look like that brings out all the bad makes me want to shake the walls They’ll sail a thousand ships for you Before you’ll learn how to be true Ten years in the ground for you A little love that never bloomed

Limbo 02:19
Limbo In the patience of the water I will wade with your soul Cause you think you have one And I’m not so sure And wanting to believe In the water Is the sanest human need We can offer Try to stand on the rocks, but Find no foothold that’s safe Here out in the water Where there’s fear there’s faith And wanting to believe in the water Is the sanest human need we can offer But as tide rips and storms near And there’s no way out of here Ever slightly my soul kneels to be received To be fished in

This declaration This declaration of my head over my heart Never kept it together it only led me from myself We two are one Wherever you go Wherever you may fall There goes my heart, there goes my heart again This declaration of my heart over my head No need to think it, I just believe she knows best we two are one Wherever you go Wherever you may fall There goes my heart, there goes my heart again as long as we have time long past the day we fall there goes my heart, there goes my heart again this declaration of my heart within my breath will sleep in silence until the day you waken it Wherever you go Wherever you may fall There goes my heart, there goes my heart again as long as we have time long past the day we fall there goes my heart, there goes my heart again
6.
Ducks and Drakes The time of year skims from me We are lightly thrown In the air for now Lifted like a stone The time the year sinks from me Water kisses stone I can’t stay this way cannot play alone A game of ducks and drakes Before the season’s done with you? So much I’d love to make So much that’s fallen through This time the city lulled to sleep by its own afterglow The way the light lies broken upon a plane of snow This time the wasted motions are finally coming home This time that we waken, we waken alone Now that the season’s done with you So glad to take this in with you
7.
Worthy 03:59
Worthy Break up with the city Steal her love back again Return to what you gave away Find out if it’s worthy Dear to the night, dear to light Everyone wants to see Something that’s clear in your own life Everyone wants to feel Break up with my friends Steal their love again Return to what you gave away Find out if it’s worthy Dear to the night, dear to light Everyone wants to see Something that’s clear in my own life Everyone wants to feel That there’s a meaning to what we are feeling This and every night That it’s worthy But I’m sure that there’s something more Behind the door you closed, something worthy Dear to the night, dear to light Everyone wants to see Something that’s clear in their own life Everyone wants to feel That there’s a meaning to what we are feeling Each and every night That it’s worthy
8.
In the Night 03:26
In the night In the night Mind goes crystalline Like a star come into view Where you are might seem similar But river crossed twice isn’t true No matter what they say You know that I won’t change Take this step with me Into the night In the night Eyes go crystalline And the bar closes too soon & We stand on our simplicity As if it brought us closer to true No matter what they say You know that I won’t change Take this step with me Into the night Though I thought I could stay the same Passing off all of the blame There’s more room in this point of view Let this night now resolve you No matter what they say You know that I won’t change Take this step with me Into the night
9.
The Fly (Blake) Little Fly, Thy summer's play My thoughtless hand Has brushed away. Am not I A fly like thee? Or art not thou A man like me? For I dance And drink, and sing, Till some blind hand Shall brush my wing. If thought is life And strength and breath And the want Of thought is death; Then am I A happy fly, If I live, Or if I die.
10.
Steal 03:42
Steel Rain and stone Gentlest destruction Air and bone Steal away Steal away home Who’s alone tonight? Everyone But that’s alright Stained & scarred The passage can’t contain The passenger Age to the eyes Will only clarifiy Who’s alone tonight? Everyone But that’s alright
11.
SSD 00:52
SSD If the soul can’t linger, will the soul step down?
12.
Leave / All 04:24
Leave / All So much that I’ve been saving So much I won’t give away try to keep it, hold it tighter my time’s too slippery of all the passing hours only the deed remains I see my years a-gathering there’s so much I want to see All the things that I might have done Come back to haunt me one by one Think there’s always time for more? Got to leave it all out on the floor All the things that I might have done Come back to haunt me one by one Think there’s always time for more? Got to leave it all out on the floor So much that I’ve been fearing Dovetails with my memory Try to change it, face it, leave it Before it leaves me All the things that I might have done Come back to haunt me one by one Think there’s always time for more? Got to leave it all out on the floor And I’m going to leave this life With nothing left on my lips I’m going to the leave this life With nothing left And everyone under the light of constellations Will leave it all out on the floor tonight And everyone with the slightest inclination Will leave it all out on the floor tonight
13.
Each Will 03:37
Each Will Each will tonight is on waivers Each love tonight is on loan Spin and you fall through light Sift through your stages All that you love tonight will be repaired Each Will Each will tonight sleeps in its wishing Each heart tonight cannot be bound And if she stays through the night until the morning I’ll be the light that rests Within her palms Each will No, nothing ever isn’t strange and nothing ever keeps its shape it’s not vanity and it’s not in vain though we change without wanting to change each will
