Track Name: Black Diamond
We were almost out
When the circus came to town
It stuck around
Arresting me
Captive, reacting
I fell in a dream

Where you were a mountain
And I covered you as snow
Born from the fountain
You never grew old

I built you a dollhouse
A safe-haven
Vacation home
Far away from
I tied a black diamond
To the black ribbon I drape
On an antique bird cage
I fell again

You were a cardinal
And I was a mocking bird
Who plucked all your feathers
So you'd never fly home

The train came into town
And settled down
Traded stream for electricity

And we buckled-down belts
Traded time for ourselves
For a suitcase of paperweights
Neckties, inkwells
And a pretty black dress
Made of all the loose-ends
Left from another life we'll bury next weekend
And I dreamed you grew older
And took the train homeward
I wave from the station where you left me
To never die, never leave, never age
In an antique bird cage

Black diamond for you
Black ribbon on my sleeve (for me)
I fell asleep
Track Name: Beyond My Will
Now I gotta think twice of who's a friend or who thinks anything at all,
Now I gotta make sense of whose intents cash in on someone that I love.

When the truth folds like a bad note, you're the sore throat.
When you don't know how it is.

When the flu's out, you're the carrier bird,
When the news gets out, you're the carrion crow,

And beyond my will, beyond my will, I crossed paths with you, crossed paths with you.

When the flu's out, you're the carrier bird,
When the news gets out, you're the carrion crow,

You don't know the strings you're playing,
and how I know the songs you're singing,
still I don't know who you think you're using,
but now I know the lines you feed.

When the stories clash,
and trace back,
when you buckle down,
I'll get your back,

But do you trust yourself, do you trust in me, I wouldn't suggest you do, I'd suggest that you….
Track Name: Another Hurdle For The Dark Horse
Something's off
A holiday we all can celebrate
A drug that we just give up
A party all invited have said they're gonna make
Is taking up your city block

Such luck is in your bones
In your blood
Such luck is in your skin
In your heart

Something's wrong
A holiday without vacation pay
For a god we all agree upon
A marriage we have yet to consummate
Nor complicate with any love

Such luck is in your bones
In your blood
Such luck is in your home
In your thoughts

If you ever feel the road is too narrow to push your burden through
No force can slow this dark horse's course
No force, for better or worse

Something's off
Something's wrong
Track Name: All For Me
I'm eclipsing myself for the rising sun, a new day comes to proceed the last one,
I feel it's face light me like responsibility I have never foretold,
and now is like the dawn, raging purple, red, and blue, before the new day is clear to reach us.

There is, no fear, no anger, and no malice, to contest my patience for the situation
No fear, no anger, and no malice to contest the damage I could have done,
No fear, no anger, and no malice to contest the weight of my growing heart,
No fear, no anger, and no malice between me and you anymore.

I felt so much today, since the break of dawn
I've been so much today since the break of dawn,
I've felt so much today since I've woken up,
I've been so much today since I've woken up.

I'm slipping myself a scarf undone, a new thought crawls in an oft played album,
I feel time spinning in a strange serenity, and lash out at every turn.
Now is just a feeling, unstable housing in weathered lagoons,
Before the new day is clear to reach us.

There is, no fear, no anger, and no malice, to contest my patience for the situation
No fear, no anger, and no malice to contest the damage that I have done,
No fear, no anger, and no malice to contest the weight of my heavy heart,
No love, no truth, and no friendship between me and you anymore.

I felt so much today, since the break of dawn
I've been so much today since the break of dawn,
I've felt so much today since I've woken up,
I've been so much today since I've woken up.
Track Name: Whatever You Want
Whatever you want
Whatever you see beneath the stars can be ours
Whatever you need
You can call on me
Whenever you want
But is it worth pretending
That you and me can be something different than the odds we face?
All the time we waste, girl
But it would be great

Whatever the route
Whenever you're leaving
Believing your doubts
If you figure me out
If you still hear me singing to an absent crowd
You're free to do without hard times never ending
All the rules that I've been bending
Slave to a vice that I can't set right, girl
But it would be nice

Remember us when we were like strangers on a bus?
When we were just sailors in the sea?
You're all that I desire in this world that's caught on fire
You're all I want and all I need
I'm dreaming

No, I won't sing this song for anyone anymore
I'll close the door
I'll keep it shut
Yeah, I know now, still comprehending
The good guys don't always find a happy ending
It's a wild dream
One that I may never see, girl
But it would be sweet

Remember me when I was the only one you needed?
The only one to bring you peace of mind?
A gun for hire
Guaranteed to make you smile
And now I'm falling on my knees
For too long
I've been dreaming too long

But don't wake me up
(Of more than what's been given to us
More than what's been said and done)
No, don't wake me up

Only love, know I've been staring down a gun
I can't make sense of anything
If I retire from the road I've roamed for miles
Do I lose everything in me?
Whatever you need
Whatever you want
Track Name: Third Parties
Trip my watch, I'd make some time for you,
It's been so long since I've heard word from you,
and now I meet more strangers than offhand I hardly count,
but strangely I find a way, to feel singled out.

Catch me up please tell me who you've been,
are your eyes on fire do you work your heavy head?
I've seen more ideas from you than anyone I've met,
and I know that it takes its toll, but I'll pay your debt.

Here's to getting old, and getting in over your head again.

Now it seems our time's been running thin,
My sides landslides shamed of who i am
You seem just the same to me though I've been uninformed, and carelessly led astray, from who I was.
I feel just the same with you, no matter what the cause, I've been told that my hearts bankrupt, but I know and knew, that I loved you.
Track Name: Harbinger
Hold your tongue, harbinger
You're one of us
Angrier than everyone
When I was young my heart was cold
And now it burns wilder than anyone's

And we are no angels
You're a horse in the stable now
An ideal so true
You're going to burn everyone surrounding you
And you know no different
A defense mechanism sprung
You're no twinkle in an eye
You're the sharpest knife I can find

Cross your heart, harbinger
You're one of us
Bigger than you think you are
When sirens cry
Fluorescents shine
It's your right to walk as cattle
Be a textbook example of

The contract's been pending
Reads: Never ending
But forever can be ending now
Take as long as you like
We only have our lives on the line
You're a bull chasing streets thin
The world's a red flame that instigates you now
Try as you might
It's the strongest arm you'll ever have to fight

Oh I know
I think they got us wrong
I think they're getting us all mixed up
With somebody else with somebody
Oh I know
I think they got us wrong
I think they're getting us all mixed up
With someone with somebody
Someone with anyone else

Wait your turn, harbinger
Until you learn
Until you fall
And if you climb
You'll be alright
You only are as strong as you say you are

With no one to save us
With no one to talk us down
We were locked up in a room
Decorated with potential and the absence of youth
With no one to blame us
If we were to stay inside
Like dogs we may lie
To waste the brightest light we can shine
Track Name: Cover Me
I'm breaking my fall owing night's due too long, will you cover me, will you cover me?
When I wake in the morning can I trust your signal, will you cover me, will you cover me,

In fear now, my future feels bleaker, unclear how, I ever could manage to be here.

Meanwhile I burned a way through the shells I've kept,
Meanwhile I've burned away all the time we,
Meanwhile I've burned away, stuck inside my head,
Meanwhile I burned away all the songs we.

I'm making the run will you blindfold the guard, will you cover me, will you cover me?

When I pace in the evening can I trust your word, oh would you come for me, would you come for me,

My love, we'll be further than ever, my heart still remembers the way that I met you.

Meanwhile I count the days since I've seen you last,
Meanwhile I've seen the ways that you seem to,
Meanwhile I've kept awake all the nights you slept,
Meanwhile I've seen the way that you seem to,

I don't ordinarily, trust in criminals and,
I don't ordinarily, trust the ones I love,
I won't ordinarily, back into a corner,
and I won't ordinarily, say the things I'd want to say to you.

I flew to the sun, couldn't follow the yarn, would you follow me, would you follow me,
When I get where I'm headed will I hear your song, oh will it follow me, did you follow me,

My dear now, we're further than ever it's clear how it's better you never had known me,
So far I gave away all the time we've spent.
Track Name: Wherever Your Arms Go
My darling, you are the one
My sole fixation, my friend
Wherever your arms go
Count me in
All the trees and their leaves
Friends we meet sing a cadence
Not us
No, we're bending backwards to stay out of it
So don't you come calling where we live

My darling, you be the muse and I'll be the jaded punk
Crying over something that I'll never have
People swim in the deep
And drown in the -oh, shit not us
No, we're moving so slow to a punctual end
So if I come crawling, let me in
And I'll do what's right for one in my life
I'll give you what you've been longing for

So if I come crawling
Leave all worth leaving
Save all that you must save
There's no sense in grieving over past mistakes
All I've been asking is for you to stay
For a million reasons while the seasons change

Leave all worth leaving
It's a risk we'll take
Don't you trust your feelings?
Oh, today's a holiday
All I've been asking is for you to stay
Through these solemn moments of these darkest days

Burn all worth leaving
Cos it's all the same
All these drunken evenings
All these strung-out days
All I've been asking is for you, darling

Oh if you're leaving
It's a grave mistake
There's no need to reason
Cos I've got a feeling that, darling
You are the one
My sole fixation, my only friend
Wherever your arms go
Count me in
Down in the deep
In a home by the ocean for us
Oh I'm bending backwards
I'm making payments
So don't you come crawling
Track Name: Set Into Stone
Waited worn,
Make a break for my arms, though they break what they hold, they break for us
Still and scorned,
Make a break for my heart wait a moment too long before your shot,

and now it's through, the hunts been all but started to get onto you.

Every day in, every day out, I've been falling for someone else.
Tempted Torn,
Keep a check on your motive, it's insensitive goals may be a plus.
Late and worn,
Left a rip in your shirt, left a gap in the hope of what we've got,

and now it's through, I split the time, the talk that we've been getting to.

Every day in, every day out, I've been falling for someone else,

And who, are you?

What's set into stone can always be written off, though it's harder to say
Track Name: Carried Over
Sit back up, and act your age, do your job, 'cause
Hard hearts don't last forever.

Love the ones, you should have loved, though times seem tough,
Hard work will bring us pleasure, love only thrives in pressure, for me.
And I have built it up.

I'm building a home to hide my soul, but it all carries over,
I'm shedding my skin to clear my thoughts, but what's the remainder?
I'm staring at the sun as I'm leaning backwards, and it all carries over me.

Fall back facing skywards, it's not all bad from the bottom of the rungs, holding on.

Your love's unconditional, you seem so familiar, I feel like I've seen you forever,
But how long until you're gone, my girl?
Track Name: Bar None
Bar none
Lump in my throat
You were the only one to get this close
Heart strung
You know how it goes
Live like an evergreen
Die like a willow tree

Punch drunk
Plated in gold
Silver lie underneath
Tarnish, corrode
Like long love
Vanish like smoke
Fade as a fantasy passed as a joke

Like a breeze blowing through this little town by the sea
Swallowing all of the ground
Now watch it drown

Overrun
Feelings of emptiness
Sounds like a record skipping backwards, ad infinitum
Us, broken but hanging in
We, older as the day gives us nothing in return

As do I
A tax you pay for all your life
So do I
Like the ghost you send your prayers at night
Bad by design
And not quite intelligent
Nor divine intervention
As seen on television
A rerun that never runs it's course
As if born again and everyone forgets

Outbound
End of the road
Further than anyone
Closer to home
Bar none
My very best friend
Plant us an evergreen
Relive it all again and again
Relive it with me
As seen on TV
Fucking television
