Track Name: foreign
one false kiss and i'll shoot
I've made a map out of a noose

and I've been so foreign
I've lost my way

tell me who tell me who
you still in love?

straight words upfront
pretty tongue

and I've been so foreign
I've lost my way

last in first out
you know the talk

words are words
until we're caught

and I've been so foreign
I've lost my way
and I've been so frightened
I've lost my shape
Track Name: kill the lights
take another ride
and you ease down slow
gonna give up tonight
like you said you would

another cut across
wreck like you know
gonna kill the lights
like when we were young

be still
and breathe

you fall down hard
with a heavier sound
spinning to a stop
and wrong side down

there's a number in your mind
it's the big thirteen
assembled by god
still turning out mean

be still
and breathe

using the light
a new way to hide
you can grow some wings
or learn how to sink

and you ought to know
the first shot is free
you ought to know
by looking at me

be still
and breathe
Track Name: count to ten
wherever the hurt
I felt it first
just under the skin
back behind the heart

call out my name
throughout the game

whatever the cost
well it's not that much
you're back into the light
and cold to the touch

call out my name
throughout the game
close your eyes tight
and count to ten, again

whatever happens
man, you gotta stay cool
there's no reason to fail
when you make up the rules

call out my name
throughout the game
close your eyes tight
and count to ten
Track Name: cycle
ride away slow
don't let them see you
staring back
into the belly of your heart
I promise not to laugh
let everything fall away
I stayed home from work
just to watch you dance

maybe she was wrong
you know she never seems to talk
what about my heart
don't you think I know my parts
I sing 'em just for you
let it fall apart
and throw it in the streets
and let every cycle repeat
Track Name: trouble
you bite your tongue
when you talk that fast
sometimes love needs
to take a rest

no matter how loud you shout
we fall in love, it's trouble now

passing time
watching you grow
no one says
you got to go it alone

but what you said
spelled out clear
I don't need you
half as near

no matter how loud you shout
we fall in love, it's trouble now

with both our hearts
and all my luck
I never thought
we'd break down this much
Track Name: surprise collapse
barely there after all
waiting for another shot
hope becomes a dangerous word

point to point contact
hardwired for collapse
breaking up with a laugh

turn out the lights
I want to be alone
a wore out surprise

better than you'd expect
returns on all you spent
feel free to burn all the rest

heart to heart combat
getting right with your past
smile on regret

turn out the lights
I want to be alone
a wore out surprise
Track Name: dirt and sparks
maybe we'd be satisfied
you know, we never really tried
and sometimes love
costs too much

for way too long
and days gone wrong
we build up nothing
with nothing but dirt and sparks

stayed too late
and burned to long
we're trouble when we get along
I'll take back words but nothing that I meant

you're last card played
really shook my faith
I buckled under all of that weight
all I can do is sit and hold my breath

for way too long
and days gone wrong
we build up nothing
with nothing but dirt and sparks

breathing hard
and barely used
we learn to shout and ignore the truth
your give and take is only a matter of pride
Track Name: yes
wait
we can both share the heart
laugh
we're only one step apart

heavier things can be moved

lost
you were someone once
dance
like you was alone

heavier things can be proved
Track Name: all we say
who knows the truth
when you fight back, "cool"
and you fight back, "heart"

goodbye

it's all we ever say is
goodbye

fools in love
and you're waking up
and you're keeping score

you bring back to life
what you never wanted
you never tried

lost and confined
anybody else
would be just fine

wave for wave
man overboard
swept away, goodbye

it's all we ever say is
goodbye
and I'm so tired of waving
so tired of waving, goodbye
Track Name: carried by birds
it's no accident
catching stares from a ghost
bottle tops and broken teeth
a summer spent alone

carried by birds
that no longer sing
we fell so easy
you'd hardly believe

you left too much out
there's nothing left to kiss
you think it's heavy now
we're only half way in

carried by birds
that no longer sing
we fell so easy
you'd hardly believe

from out on high
a place you never go
calling out names
you used to know

carried by birds
that no longer sing
we fell so easy
you'd hardly believe
Track Name: it's okay
first, you gotta slow it down
before you say another word,
It's okay

piece by piece
you gotta find the sides
before you say another word
it's okay

okay,
I was looking at you
before you say another word
it's okay, alright
Track Name: everybody wins
you took everything
worth its weight
all that's left
is me and my name
everybody wins
it's just a matter of time

and all those words
we never really meant
fighting each other
claiming self defense
everybody wins
it's just a matter of time

sleeping all alone
doesn't seem that bad
I heard you found
what you never had
everybody wins
it's just a matter of time

sometimes
I think about you
one thing you said
certainly is true
everybody wins
it's just a matter of time
