Track Name: Woodvine
Above us the sun is melting
And flowing over our heads
The desert - it strips us of our skins
Exposing our skeletons within

And our excuses

You say that this feels like home
As we sink roots in the ground
I'd like to think you're right and this could be
But I also see the mark this could leave

What if I'm not enough?
Track Name: Big Cube/Little Cube
Each piece of the puzzle
Apparent in itself
Gets you into trouble
When this all goes to hell
So let's just hold off now
This might be too difficult to sell

Do you know what's coming
Are there places to hide?
I think the pace is picking up and
After all this time
It is far too late to be convinced
So just enjoy the ride

Everybody knows - no one ever says
Everybody knows the truth
So do what you want to do

Everything's in boxes
Or painted white
Lines will clearly show the
Figures and sides
Don't you wait up
You don't have the time

I don't think this is helping
Let's just let it go
I know that this props you up but
I guess I don't
See a reason
Why it has to be so

Everybody knows - no one ever says
Everybody knows the truth
So do what you want to do
Track Name: So It Goes
I drag my feet because it helps me see
Leaving behind lines connecting me
From where it is that I am and where I've been
But this geometry is incomplete

I guess you gotta know where your heart is
I guess you gotta know why you care

At every branch we have the chance to be
A mirror of ourselves that we can't see
But in the absence of absolutes how am I to choose?
When it's not what we say, it's what we do that damns us
And so it goes
Track Name: Fireflies
Could it be anybody else?
Catastrophe contained within a face
She insists that I might as well
Keep it secret / keep it safe

When I wrote this letter to myself
I didn't know to whom it was addressed
Enclosed I find fragments that will tell
All my intentions / my regrets

If you find yourself on the other side
If you find yourself on the edge
If you find yourself on the other side
As you're looking down make sure you take all of this in

We exist in blissful ignorance
When we do a thing for the last time
We assume that cycles will continue and
We move forward paying no mind

Remember me as anybody else
Just the way you always thought I'd be
Every facet perfectly aligned with
My best depiction of your needs

If you find yourself on the other side
If you find yourself on the edge
If you find yourself on the other side
As you're looking down make sure you take all of this in

If you find yourself chasing fireflies
Little lights out in the dim
If you find yourself on the other side
Realize that you can't always get back to where you've been
Track Name: I Got a Bad Feeling About This (pt 1)
If I leave then who
Will be the fool here
If we're of like minds
Then I'll see you sometime
When this all blows over

Have you seen the movement?
I know what I'm doing here
Your doubts are also mine
But the numbers and the signs
Are quite conclusive

Everything about this
Everything about this is
Just a convenient lie
But lying by your side
It helps me a bit
Just a little bit
Track Name: I Got a Bad Feeling About This (pt 2)
See the metal in the sky
See all those lives so high in flight
From up there we don't exist
Apocryphal apocalypse

Now watch the skyline shift
And wait to take the hit

It's so god damn foolish
to lean so hard on permanence
We should know by now
That there's no way out
Everything will change
For the better of what remains
