...............................
1 hush money
i lied to you again, it was so easy
i lied to you again
and everytime that i fake for TV
you go make it harmony
take a match and make it
take off the tape in
i saw a man who laid it down
could only silver plate it
would always leave it weighted
cause i'm changin mine because I'm going down there
i was in a corner, never such a low way
and i drank up 'til fear was a diamond gold
but i never make it
collected these excuses
to prove my innocence
quieting my concience
with song apologies
sailing out to sea
on my disease
shhh

2 the terms
lo, and behold friends it seems that you have lives
wish you well and wave goodbye, as i have mine
if it's true it must be only once in life
second chances only last in second lives
resting up, i'm resting up
i've had enough to face the loss
of gravity, departing
i was here with you
saturday evening, sunday afternoon
staring at the sky to find a morning moon
if it's true that there can be only one test
bikes are better but helicopters are the best
i missed my chance to feel it
what it was like
rested up, i'm rested up
i've had enough to feel it stop
and all that's left is here today
and what is far away
and you said, you gotta live in mountains
and you said, you gotta breathe mountain air
and you thought you'd have time to think about it
about the time you spent when you weren't there

3 astro turf
i thought this was what you wanted
in the end left to your devices
hey there hero, show us what you've seen
for all the blame and shameless vanity
but here you stand, it's still the place you find it
all the stars aligned and blinking left you blinded
and now you're left without the things to hate beside it
besides you
and what you wished for
before you knew
what you would do
i thought this was what you wanted
in the end left to your devices
heaven becomes hell once you have it
if all that progress clawed for smells like shit
but here you stand, it's still the place you find it
all the stars aligned and twinkled 'til you tried it
and you're faced with only half of what reminds you
defines you
and what you wished for
before you knew
what you could do
(grass is always greener when you're wearing green glasses)

4 otterbelly fin
good morning, good morning
annabelle & otter
sunshine's son and daughter
mama's made it back to you somehow
through darkest night and despite darkest doubts
good morning, good morning
annabelle & otter
sunshine's son and daughter

5 captain's log (alpha brotherly love)
someone somewhere said
sometime long ago
unless you get on top
then you're worthless
a universal law
a nearly worthless life
unless you get on top
forever all or nothing
and if you are on top
how can you be wrong,
sorry, weak, or soft?
dog eat dog eat dog
mistakes are worthlessness
keeping score self defense
dog eat dog eat dog

6 de resistance
calm down, calm down, calm down
i should be patient
i should have faith
i should be grateful
i should embrace
but i don't wanna take the time in my life
to take apart the pieces of the doubt
i just want to take a piece of my life
and make it pay for everything somehow
but all that separates you from
the thing you want, the things you love
is all that separates you from you
i need a doctor
i need a nurse
i could be patient
but here's where it hurts
'cause i don't wanna take the time in my life
to take apart the pieces of the doubt
i just wanna take a piece of my life
and make it pay for everything somehow
but all that separates you from
the thing you want, the things you love
is all that separates you from love

7 you're gonna die
you're gonna die anyway
you're gonna fly far away
and everything you wanted
will cover you like a glove
for shaking hands with those you loved
and only become haunted
and take you in waves you never imagined
wash you away except for the things
that you thought you needed
you're gonna die in a way
everytime you make her stay
and everything you wanted
will slip away, while you sleep
and all the things you thought you'd keep
will only leave you haunted
and break you with waves you never imagined
wash you away except for a grasp
of what you've repeated
you're gonna die anyway
you might as well learn to play
everything you wanted
and make a song memory
that feels the way you couldn't be
and carry it with you constantly
to save you in ways you never imagined
wash you away except for the thing
that you have completed
you're gonna die anyway
you're gonna fly far away
from everything you wanted

8 oh, to be
oh, to be a man
and finally understand
oh to be someone
who's not afraid
oh to be at last
finally unmasked
oh to be the one
who's unashamed
oh, to be oh, to be
oh, to believe
oh to be alive
and finally decide
oh to take a chance
on giving
oh to be
oh to believe

9 crater recon
is there room
here for me
to resume?
is there room
here for me
to be you?
is there time
here for me
to be blind?
is there light
left for me
from behind?
is there room
here for us
to resume?
is there room
here for us
to be true?
and what i fear is what i find
and what i find is what i fear

10 sun corner
i saw you yesterday
at the corner of the sun
i saw you yesterday
at the corner of the sun
at the corner of the sun
i saw you
i ended up next to you
when all the day was done
i ended up next to you
when all the day was done
when all the day was done
right next to you
i woke up to yesterday
woke up, and broke it
i woke up to yes today

i've been wanting to wake up
and i've been wanting to stay up
i've been wanting to say a
say a yes to plain old love
yes to plain old love

i looked up yesterday
and saw a million diamonds
all dying
right before my eyes
so silent,
decided
and i couldn't save them
