Track Name: White Wash
I'm becoming comfortable in my shoes
Everywhere I walk leaves a little room
In these electric times I've always known the way
I've walked back and forth between night and day

This small town has lost too many friends
Some wrote songs and others taught lessons
In these electric times we've learned to touch what's there
Holding tight, forever can't feel my stare

When I look around
It seemed clearer before
When I look around
It seemed clearer

All I see is this repeating night
Where hearts don't break, they're just lost from sight
These electric times can spin out of control
When emotionless dancing takes it's toll

I watched my southern town get covered in snow
When all the black was gone, only beauty could show
These electric times could use a white wash
Because I have seen true love's cost
Track Name: 4am
Here's my breath that turned to sound
It's my ears, they're on the ground
In a heat wave from another town
Sweats a soul you've never found

All those times that I went to bed
4 in the morning replaced my head
All that silence has yet to fade away
Out of sight

Here's the place I've learned to love
It's my mind, it's flown above
Setting sights on another town
But walking here makes a sound

All those times I heard you say
4 in the morning replaced your grace
All those heartbeats you earned like charity

That short week when we stayed awake
4 in the morning could never shake
All your glances aimed straight to the west
In due time
Track Name: Lays Around Lazy
There's a day that we want to breathe
With the lungs that we've always held
Like the sting from a leaving love
That left your heart a beating drum

Our time, it keeps ticking by
With the strength from our own two arms
Like the ones on your lover's hands
That squeeze too tight when they help you stand

As hard as it to tell
These are not my feet
My words are not this sweet
Because I have turned no leaf

At this place that we've finally reached
We'll stand up straight with all the things we've seen
Like the dust that lays around lazy
And your past has now gone hazy
Track Name: Second Wind
You're sleeping in, you're sleeping off
Those tired eyes you wear so proudly
You've wanted this second wind

You're breathing life, you're breathing death
You walk upstairs, you turn sideways
You've wanted this double take

You hum along as you go to work
You leave your clothes around the city
You've wanted this

Scream out your fears even louder now that I have let you go
I stumble to the top
Scream out your fears even louder now that I have let you go
I'm never here, I'm never here, I'm never here

I'll let in on what I've seen
The sun first sets and then it rises
I've wanted this nightlife

I'll let you in on what I know
I breathe in deep and then I breathe out
I've wanted this
Track Name: Blame
Blame it on the moon
Because I can't see the sun

I put my faith in sound
Then walk fast and slink around
I put my faith in sound
Then talk fast and stand around

This is only best
When space fills your happiness
This is only best
When space is your happiness

I put my faith in sound
Then walk fast and slink around
Track Name: Everyday Is Listening
You are here sick with me
With heavy light that's hot to breath
Holding hearts that sing for free
Head inside, here comes the breeze
Everyday is listening
Arms you hold fall on me

Here I am, I came to be
A brand new man I'll never leave
Breaking arms and showing feet
Waving hands that come for cheap
Everyday is listening
Arms that hold the blame for me

I'm the one that sees the same go, go, go
You are only seeing me now

Here I am, I came to be
A brand new man you'll never see
Meeting hearts that gain no ground
The breeze is here, but it makes no sound
Everyday is listening
Arms that hold the blame for me
Track Name: Station
Waiting at the station tonight
Waiting just to shed you some light
Then you'll see me brighter

Waiting on a seat by the bar
Waiting just to catch your eye
Then I'll bring up the old times
Because I can

I am going no where

I'm breathing in colors
But I'm seeing the same dark scheme

Waiting at the scene of the crime
Waiting just to say goodnight
And I've seen it all now
Finally

I am dancing too close

I'm breathing in colors
But I'm seeing the same dark scheme
I laid awake last night
With a searching heart laughing at me

Waiting at the station tonight
Waiting just to see you alive
Track Name: Tight Rope
I am not afraid of anything that could trap me next to you
Like a simple sound, that could tackle down a heartbeat that I could feel
When the morning comes you could set aside our truce

I have never met anyone from here that could tell me what's out there
Holding diamonds in their pockets for a future that lives to scare
When the morning comes you could settle down for cheap

All of this
This is mourning
In the morning
Outside

I have never made anything from time that can treat me like you do
Like a single note, from a tight rope, walking side by side with me
Late this afternoon we could set that pressure free
Then down the line I will hurry down your street
Track Name: A Book
Hey, why'd you come here?
Hey, why'd you pick here?
A book from a friend, who dared to pretend
And look at you now

Hey, how'd you get here?
Hey, how'd you make it to me?
A train, through a fire? Oh, you liar
And look you're safe now

Help myself when no one is lost
Climb to the top just to see across
Again

Hey, aren't you curious?
How, how I picked here
A book, thrown at me by old suburban queen
And look at me now
Track Name: Ghost, Teacher, Girl And I
There's a bird outside singing in the key of D
It fit so right, i'd swear he wrote it for me
The truth is that he wrote it for a girl
Whose name I can't remember anymore

There's this ghost I've known for all of my short life
Who swears everyday that he's going to find a life
Pick some skin and help us get by
Love us all and stop those fucking lies

That ghost outside he hums a long with me
Repeats everything we say, and says it was he
He's never told the truth before in his life
I'm exaggerating, maybe once or twice

There's this girl in my face and she's crying about me
I could say something but I think I like what I see
She says she's done all that she knows to do
I could cry with her but then she'd know the truth

There's this teacher who taught me since the day I was born
Fed by a spoon and played me like a horn
Until the day the girl she made sense
"To love a ghost" is all in present tense
