Track Name: Go From Here
Do you see? Do you hear? Do you feel still, are you real still?
We are here still - we are bewildered.
I am off kilter
Mostly sad, mostly lost, mostly without God
I never knew how heaven worked,
Or the devils with their perks.
Believe that energy cannot be destroyed
Somewhere are you still a little boy?
I wish you joy - but I wish more you were near
I wish you'd never gone from here.

You fly farther from me every day
now a memory the sound of your voice called me sis said my name
Do you know my pain?
Did I know you? Did I fall through?
Is this feeling shame?
When I want to disappear - I want to go, want to go from here.

You can't take back words never formed
you can't fight forms - or caskets
or a grief, over tears
why only one chance to kneel?

Why do now my tears come with chills
desire to go from here
fulfillment we need to know that your presence can still be real
Do you hear me?
Do you hear the prayers that were said from the depths of our dread?

You fly farther from me every day
now a memory the sound of your voice called me sis, said my name
Do you know my pain?
Did I know you? Did I fall through?
Is this feeling shame - when I want to disappear,
when I want to go, I want to go from here.

Do you see? Do you hear? Do you feel still, are you real still?

We are here still.
Track Name: Been Tired
As much as I can, I fill my home with green things
As much as I can, I have not recalled your name
I find it harder to leave my family all of the time
and when gone, think or know I spent time wrong.

Stare at a screen that won't ever care for my woes.
How are they both quite trivial and monstrous?

I'm tired - been tired
and how I wish that you were not.

Can I breathe in you energy - when I haven't got any?
Can we still be excited to see the outlines in our misery?
I'm scared to come home
I'm scared to leave
Might run away, go under
Might heed my own warnings this time.

Take time watching shows that have no consequence no relevance
Besides - my own entertainment
I'm becoming swallowed by the age of empires
Cause there I have land and horses
and here I struggle to make my rent

I'm tired - been tired
and how I wish that you were not.

Can I breathe in you energy - when I haven't got any?
Can we still be excited to see the outlines in our misery?
I'm scared to come home
I'm scared to leave
Might run away, go under, might heed my own warnings this time.
Track Name: Out To Graze
Reflecting slowly now that I've played myself
lethargic fool, consumer, lost wealth
Time given over let freely go
this offering left me knelt
Before the god who once ruled my thoughts
I need a final bout just to start
What does it mean to be alive - what does it mean to die?
I need to know will I get to meet,
my final memories where could they lie?
Their final words to me weren't goodbye.

And if I can't quite now breathe new life with pen and paper
what then I'm through?
Is it safe now to state
it's a fable I'm stable.
Set me out to graze.

When leaving family I can fall
in to the myth there never was a life for my kind paved with bliss.
A maddening sadness seared in this my flesh
reflection has a boundary to forget.
Hands idle did spiral not creation but foul loss
castles spun in hot air built with ego at what cost?
A tether self-lying, self-tying, self-serving game.
Put out to pasture I came up lame.

And if I can't quite now breathe new life with pen and paper
what then I'm through?
Is it safe now to state
it's a fable I'm stable.
Set me out to graze.
Track Name: Tomorrow
Never cried for opportunities I lost while feeling so bothered
not once was your hand offered
a city can't be a father
or a mentor or a mother I guess I held you more as my brother
just want you to be proud
to say my name, know my sound.

Where can I affect my habits spinning darling
I have left it til tomorrow
I'll get to it tomorrow
What is disappointment when it's self inflicted?
I have a fear of reaching true potential of commitment.
Hounded by sorrow
I'll do it I promise tomorrow, promise tomorrow.

I hold fast to fears I'm startled
by a dream that can't be a model
Come call me out if I'm hollow.

Here - I see how the work is swallowed
the art is built and followed
Need to know I'm not awful, no I'm hallowed.

For years - been avoiding real discovery.
Know that I've suppressed some memories
never seen myself clearly.
Where can I affect my habits spinning darling
I have left it til tomorrow
I'll get to it tomorrow
What is disappointment when it's self inflicted?
I have a fear of reaching true potential of commitment.
Hounded by sorrow
I'll do it I promise tomorrow, promise tomorrow.
Track Name: Darling Darling
I wanna go for a ride
I wanna go on a date with you
my darling darling
I wanna take you away for more than a day
You deserve my time, preserve my mind
Watch - I'll dance for you

Recall the first time you asked to work together
guess I could have known better.
Denied a chemistry made partners first
before any love, could try and blossom between us.

There's been some time surprising tragedy strikes
There's been some fights my smallness and strife
There's been some wonderment I wanna take you away

I wanna go for a ride
I wanna go on a date with you
My darling darling
I wanna take you away for more than a day
You deserve my time, preserve my mind
Watch - I'll dance for you

I wish I had the power to give you luck
or the money to set us up in style
Let's get a large from Belmont and scheme over soda

Let's get a tiny house, a get away car
Let's get adventure in our blood view the stars
Let's dream in day time with abandon let me take you away

Gave me community, expenses small loves,
you gave me chicken coated drawings
but my dearest - a book bound by your hands.

I wanna go for a ride
I wanna go on a date with you
My darling darling
I wanna take you away for more than a day
You deserve my time, preserve my mind
Watch - I'll dance for you
