Track Name: Puddles
All the roads you rode upon
Will rupture in the sun
Enough begins to take its toll
Then sounds before you’re done
Down, down, down the rain comes
Crash colossal sound
Collections of our common fears
Now puddles on the ground

Around you
Surround you
I am not the giver, I am the river
I am the one that you would die for
I am not the great green ghost
I am the shining emerald coast
Around you
Surround you


We were the ones
We grew old in your sleep
We grew up with the sun
Cause you keep us real
Keep us feeling something at all
I was a ghost because
You wouldn't notice
But somewhere below
The ground keeps me from floating

Once
We were all the same
Then you
You flew away from me
Track Name: New Reckless
So what am I if not reckless and impatient?
So what am I if not one to lead the way?
What’s the difference between what I call expectations and you call dreams?
It’s our future
It’s our future

Each time I walk out that door
I get a little bit closer to home
Oh oh oh oh

So what’s the point in us sitting and debating?
It’s my questions I hear you evading
Like how do you fall asleep at night?
What am I if not caring and respectful?
What am I if not a liar and a thief?

I promise to cross this desert
If you promise to survive
So hold on
Hold on
Track Name: Scores And Scoreboards
I would walk around the ocean
But I get this seasick notion
Every time I look out of my front door
I’d probably feel better
But I just don’t like this weather
So I often wind up sitting home feeling poor
I know that I’m a chooser
But I just feel like a loser
And I hope to god that no one’s keeping score
But that’s what scores and scoreboards are for
I would go to work if I could afford the store
Some times if feels like I’m fighting back a war
When my dreams and aspirations just get washed up on the shore
Track Name: Bees
Geez louise, we love bees
We climb in trees, to feel the breeze
Looking for some honey
Hope it’s not too runny
WHAT…
You think I’m funny?

I’m friends with the trolls under the bride
And all the veggies in my fridge
If you wanna save me don’t hold your breath
Cause I’m not the kinda girl who needs
A prince charming

Queen bees rule more than king bees
I can’t wait for PG13 movies
I like reading graphic novels
At the same time as I eat bagels
You think being a kid is so easy?
Grilled cheesy makes me queasy
What?...
Ron Weasley!

I’m friends with the trolls under the bride
And all the veggies in my fridge
If you wanna save me don’t hold your breath
Cause I’m not the kinda girl who needs
A prince charming
Track Name: We Got Away
Lessons from the ocean will be bottled from a far
Colors of the war will shine through
I will fight I will free all those who travel with out eyes
Calling for the truth
Take what you wanted, all you are don’t you worry
Of the long long way back down
Of the long long way back down

We got away, we got away, we got away
Until this day
We got away, we got a way, ay ay

Dear we are golden rolling covered from the storm
Sailing without leave
You will fight you will free all those who travel with out eyes
Fighting for the truth

Take what you wanted, all you are don’t you worry
Of the long long way back down
Of the long long way back down

We got away, we got away, we got away
Until this day
We got away, we got a way, ay ay
Track Name: California
The notion that your blood goes as deep as the ocean
Doesn’t matter if you always wash up back home
I will not grow where you will not garden
Will not walk where grief was grown to reap alone

Long time ago I wished I were the father
Of the newest born child on the ground that forgot her
She will not hear what the new sound fears
A California girl to mourn ya
When you’re gone
A California girl to mourn ya
When you’re gone

I found a garden where
My work will be returned
I long for a place where
The gaps need me as much as I need them

Lean into the long shot
I take comfort in the distance between here and your hair
Drive all night till our luck’s shot
The summer air will raise the hair
On your neck

I will see you for the truth that you carry
I will see you for the labor of your love
I will see you in the only way
I know how to see beauty
As close to god as I would ever care to get

You sing like you mean it
That means a whole lot to me
You play hard with your obscene wit
An Indiana girl she’s a Nana Grizol fan
An Indiana girl she’s a Nana Grizol fan
Track Name: Merry Go Round
I may run away dear
But you can chase me
Oh you can chase me
But you, you will not follow
Oh no you won’t dear
And that’s fine with me

I will buy you flowers,
But they won’t make it
No they won’t make it
But you, you will not hear me
Cause the train is calling
Gotta ride alone

Here we go it’s the merry go round song
Won’t you join in
Dancing and all the hummingbirds singing
Soon we’ll be friends

I will keep your secret
But they might make me
No they won’t let me
But you, you will not mind dear
Cause they won’t find us
We’re goin’ roamin’ free

We will find our treasure
And sail off ever, oh and ever
But dreams don’t always make it
And that’s the story of you and me

Here we go on this merry go round
Falling slowly, wake my dear now
Track Name: Hole In The Moon
In the middle of my street
That I don’t live on
Something I can’t forget
So I fetter my regret
And I look into the stars
And stare as the stars go by
Soon the sun it will come up
And bless us with a shine
There’s a hole in the moon
But I think I spoke to soon
Cause it’s only big enough for my heart to slip though
Like another shivering song
Like a lover you once had
You know it won’t last long
But the feelings not that bad
And there’s a hole in my head
That’s another way to say
I think I missed you on that day
Its like I never met you
But if you decide to come this way again
You believe in second chances
Then we can give that one a spin
You can sing a song
I’ll try to sing a long
But I forget the words
Does it matter who else heard?
We talk of how we’ve learned
To love the people that we’ve burned
And might seem so absurd
But we’ll smile in the rain
And laugh away the pain
Walk barefoot up the stream
So happy we could scream
We’ll weather out this storm
To the harmony of horns
The beating of our hearts
Count them as they start
