Track Name: No Future
In the woods
Swinging on a vine
My friends and I
Were just kids at the time
We weren't thinking about tomorrow or any day after that
We were to busy being exactly where we were at

In the afternoon
Laying down in my bed
With the lights off
I wasn't thinking about tomorrow or any day after that
I was to busy being exactly where I was at

Kissing on
Someone else's bed
Our lips electric
And music in my head
We weren't thinking about tomorrow or any day after that
We were to busy being exactly where we were at

It was dark
In the neighborhood
We played hide n' seek
Just because we could
And we weren't thinking about tomorrow or any day after that
We were to busy being exactly where we were at

In the winter
She wore black
Until we got back
To her apartment
Track Name: Photographs
Looking back at the photographs of me
Stare into eyes I use to see with
They are glowing warm with memories that stick like syrup
This ones from when I was a boy
To young to dream or be employed
Bliss swept my countenance as I was climbing up the play house
I recall the feeling
But don't recall it's name

I can see me
Looking right back at me
Through the one way glass
Of a photograph
All of the things I thought
And all of the fights I fought
Are ghosts inside this frame
And so I turn the page

Here I am breaking into teens
My look is confident and green
My hair was brown but like Cobain's
And I was scared and hungry
For feeling anything at all
The flight that comes before the fall
The taste that grows inside your mouth
After you've kissed a treasure
There is nothing like the first time
If there is I've never seen it

I can see me
Looking right back at me
Through the one way glass
Of a photograph
All of the things I thought
And all of the fights I fought
Are ghosts inside this frame
And so I turn the page
Track Name: My Old Face
Hello
From the face you won't let go
I've got nowhere left to go
And I've been dieing for you to forget
But you won't
So I stayed here in your head
I'll stay inside your head
If you want me to

But there's no going back or forward
No new doors to open
Just you when you want to relive glory days
You don't want to lose it
You got me but I'm not a dog

I'll be right here
Waiting for you to appear
Your not fooling me anymore
I'm a ghost

Oh I remember looking through those eyes

Wave goodbye to my old face
It smiles back at me through the rain
You and I are no longer the same
I'm taking our heart and I'm going away
Row, row, row the boat away from yesterday
Track Name: King Among Kings
This is where I get to be
Just like you them and everybody
I'm alright even when I'm not right

I don't think I'm growing up
But I doubt I'll be a kid again
Everything rusts and everything growing

I don't see where I fit in
To all of this and all of them
But I am glad I still got you my friend

Younger days
Good old younger days
They will go away
Good old younger days

There I am playing in the woods
And there I am kissing with my lips
And there I am laughing with the wolves

There I am dancing all alone
And there I am crying in the dark
There I am a king among kings

Looking back it seems to me
That all I've done and all I've seen
Is gold to me but thats about it

I don't see where I fit in
To all of this and all of them
But I am glad I still got you my friend

Younger days
Good old younger days
They will go away
Good old younger days

As simple as it is
It's hard to understand
That everything has an end
But thats the reason why you care
Track Name: Story Of Love
It will take you by surprise
Yeah it will hold your hand
It shelter through stormy weather
It'll save you if it can
You tell me what it is
And I will shake your hand
Because then I'll know there's someone else
As lucky as I am

It will drain your blood
Yes it will hollow out your chest
It will take apart your world
And it will leave it all a wreck
You tell me what it is
And I will shake your hand
Because then I'll know there's someone else
As messed up as I am

It will be a home
Yes it will make your body float
It will turn your eyes electric
It's a bridge over the moat
You tell me what it is
And I will shake your hand
Because then I'll know there's someone else
As lucky as I am

It will trample you down
It will make you hide away
It will scare you into stealing all the promises you made
You tell me what it is
And I will shake your hand
Because then I'll know there's someone else
As lucky as I am

It above all is the greatest
Reason to begin
Any road or any battle
Any song or any sin
You tell me what it is
And I will shake your hand
Because then I'll know there's someone else
As lucky as I am
Track Name: Good Old World
The wind blew summers wrath away
I wish I could return to Autumn days
And see the way I used to
Feel the blood of liberation
Smell the tides of change
And tell the skeletons they got nothing on me
Run and meet a new love
Clouds will rain
But that won't stop us
We were smitten with the season
Call me back to when we laughed
With out the fear of losing
I don't care if it's for just a second
Let me fall into the good old world

I can't go back
Because the clothes wouldn't fit
It doesn't change how I feel about it
There's to much now that I am used to
I don't mind time while I go through
But I'd be lying if I said it's not a pain
Track Name: Grog
Well it's all for me grog
Me noggin noggin grog
All for me beer and tobacco
I spent all me tin with the ladies drinking gin
So across the western ocean I must wander

Well sick me head
And haven't been to bed
Since I first came to shore with me plunder
I've seen skeletons and snakes
And me head is full of aches
So I think I'll take a bath way up yonder

Well it's all for me grog
Me noggin noggin grog
All for me beer and tobacco
I spent all me tin with the ladies drinking gin
So across the western ocean I must wander
Track Name: Kid
Turn the handle
Open the door
Step into the black nothingness
We were hoping
To be birds but
We got hung up on tomorrow's end
No need to find your house
It's always here
Call out from the middle of the forest
Find out what you think you think about
Collect the things that you think will help you out

AHHHHHHHHHHHH

Not all mistakes are made
You could be anyone
No times ever to late
So on and on and on
The towers and parades
Are there for everyone
Go on to beat the day
Into a song of sun

Not all mistakes are made
So on and on and on
Not all mistakes are made
So on and on and on
Not all mistakes are made
So on and on and on
Track Name: We Never Had Much
Mother always made my bed for me
And held me close when I fell out of the tree
Father gave me a hammer and let me try
But as far as for the nails
He said "well those are for you to find"
Brother made me proud and I won't forget
I was mean but you know I didn't mean it
And my friends were my friends
You know who I'm talking about
And those others were just kids I would hang around
I would hang around
I would hang around

We never had much but we never needed
Still I always needed something that needed me
And I had my doubts but who's immune to that
I'd like to think that I fought back when I was up against the wall
But I'm not sure I always did
Who ever is

And I don't want your wishing well
And I don't want your heaven or your hell
And I don't want my heart to bleed all out
And I don't really want these things to think about

Silver sand Summer and her honey lips
And an Autumn collideascope and a warm eclipse
And a soul hollowed flute and a marble grace
Those are the places I allow my time to waste
Those are the places I allow my time to waste

We never had much but we never needed
Still I always needed something that needed me
And I had my doubts but who's immune to that
I'd like to think that I fought back when I was up against the wall
But I'm not sure I always did
Who ever is
Track Name: Wall Of Water
Look at me are are spread and thin
Battered down to a spirit crawl and grin
I don't think that anyone put me here
Holding up this juggernaut of water

Mary
Mary
I'm coming home

Cut me in the back
Tell me why I feel it
Cut me in the back
Tell me why I forget
Let me know
That I don't have to fall again
Just to learn that I don't like falling
Turn and laugh
Tell me I've become you can trust
I start to let my fingers slip
This cliff of water tramples over me

Mary
I'm coming home
Track Name: Cemetary
Dig them up
Carefully
Bodies of
Memories
Clean the dirt
Off their skin
Let them breathe
Once again

Glowing in
Subtle light
Grey and cold
Soft and white
Pour the color
From your life
Into their eyes

These things I don't want to forget
The warm memories
The things that I've done
The faces I've loved
The empires I've won
Their a part of me
Your a part of me
Your a part of me
Your a part of me
Track Name: Moving On
Now its time for me to move along
Leave the long past back where it belongs
Never forget all these things I've done
Just won't let them be the only ones anymore

Sometimes life can be so beautiful
All you have to do is let it

Take a step then take another step
No regrets just things I can't forget
Oh I'm moving on
lalala

Sometimes life can be so beautiful
All you have to do is let it

On a movie screen
Inside my head I've seen
My friends and family
Through all our movements
And though I miss the simple way
Things used to be
If I don't move along
There will not be anything here to look back on

Where am I going
I will never know
But I'm
Looking forward to tomorrow
Track Name: Dead Trail (Bonus)
I'll always come back here
Well what did you expect
All in all
We are wolves or kings

I am going back there
But I don't the patience
All in all
We are wolves or kings
Track Name: Isn't It So (Bonus)
In my own way
I walk through this world
Don't know where I'm walking to

All the days
From then to now
I leave plants and ashes

The more I try
To figure out where I'm going
The more I get lost
Thats just the way it goes
Isn't it so

I never to think if I'd ever given up
I've never had a real name just letters in a box
And with those letters I built some towers in the sun
And with those letters I built a home for me to love
And with those letters I fought in wars against everyone
Those are the types of wars you fight alone
And in those towers I found fire
And in my home I found a heart
And in those wars I found a coward to play the heroes part

When your world crumbles
Inside of your hands
Just try to remember
Try to understand
You can do what you want to do
Go where you wanna go
Say what you wanna say
forever
Track Name: Sometimes (Bonus)
Sometimes thing change
What you gonna do
When it happens to you

Things die
Friends move away
Nothing ever turns out Like you planned it to

Will you let it in
Start a fire and burn until it ends
And from your ashes
Your reborn like a Phoenix
Or will you lock it out
And deny it and try to relive
All the pieces that you like
And you cry and you cry
Because it takes more then just pieces to make a life

Sometimes things change
What you gonna do when it happens to you
Things die
Friends move away
And nothing ever turns out like you planned it to

It is quite a fix we're in this time
How long do you think you can survive
We get older and time gets faster
While all we know slows down
Meaning takes time
So if it's meaning you want then you better stick around
For a while

Because

Sometimes things change
Sometimes things change
Sometimes things change
Sometimes things change
Sometimes things change
Track Name: Well In The Ceiling (Bonus)
I asked her if she'd wake me up
Tomorrow in the morning
She didn't live to far away
She laughed and then she said ok

She rode her bike to his house
Opened his door before he opened his eyes

This ones for the girls in the Summer
One more for the owls in the attic
Two more for the ships in the bottles
So much for a name
You left me on the bottom of a well in ceiling
One day I will know what I'm feeling
All these things are going while I stood here
Well I tried
And I'm trying

And there was another one
And she was pretty and sweet so cute in her glasses
We went to the beach to watch the sunrise
That morning was perfect as perfect as a morning could be

He broke her heart
Sent her away
On a holiday
He wished he could say
I'm sorry

This ones for the girl in the Summer
One more for the owls in the attic
Two more for the ships in the bottles
So much for a name
You left me on the bottom of a well in ceiling
One day I will know what I'm feeling
All these things are going while I stay here
Well I tried
And I'm trying

I will always be with you
You will always be there too
What we share will never die
It just changes with our eyes

Things will never be the same
As they were yesterday
But I love you anyway

Ahhhhh
