Track Name: Don't Let It Get To You
Don’t let it get to you
He means well, they love you
Don’t let it get to you
He’ll brush your hair for you

Don’t let me get to you
I have know clue what I do
Don’t let me get to you
I cannot live up to

Don’t let it get to you
You’ll do well, I know you
Don’t let it get to you
We are all here for you

But why do you have to cry?
I wish you’d dry your eyes
I wish you’d realize
That it’s alright
Track Name: Have We Gone Too Far?
In a park underneath a tree
There’s a pond where the kids drink algae
In the dark you can hear them scream
As they pass on haunting stories

In the hills up in Tiger Creek
There’s a pool where they practice drowning
Kicking their shoes as they swim up stream
No clue their world is not surviving

Have we gone too far?
Lights in every yard
Lots for every car
Have we gone too far?

In a park underneath a tree
Where the kids gain a taste for algae
Gaze at the stars and you’ll hear one scream
Goodbye to a world so haunting

Have we gone too far?
Lights in every yard
Lots for every car
Years and miles apart
Can we all restart?
Before we grow apart
And forget who we are
Or have we gone too far?
Track Name: Neighbors
I can know you now
I do now
I can’t help but feel
And I do

I can know you well
But I could never know you all
I’m allowed to feel
And I’m feeling ten feet tall
I can see you now
And I do
Track Name: Why So?
I would go and you would follow me
Or I’d stay still and you’d still follow me
And I’d get lost and you would follow me
Or I would fall and you would follow me
But I will go and you won’t see me at all

Why so?
Why is it so
Impossible for me?

I would go and you would follow me
Or I stay still and you’d still follow me
And I’d get lost and you’d lose with me
Or I would fall and you’ fall after me
But I will go and you won’t see me at all

Why so?
Why is it so
Impossible for me
Ever to be
Ever at peace
With company?
Track Name: Here With Me
You’re gone from me
But still I feel you here with me
Everything in my head says you’re gone from me
How do I feel you here with me?

I feel you here with me
I feel you here with me
I feel you here with me
You’re here with me

I wanna stare at the stars for a while out your window
I’m still afraid of the dark you know
It’s sure has been a while I know
But I want you to know
I want you to know

I feel you here with me…

Everything in my head says you’re gone from me
No
No you’re with me
Track Name: Loose Thoughts, Let's Rot
Don’t think those thoughts
Don’t let your mind float too far

You need not mind
You have no cares leave it behind

You’ve such short time
But your roof is over head today
Don’t get too wise
Your mind can overtake your ways

Loose thoughts will rot
And you could rot
Loose thoughts will rot
If they’re not stopped
Hey thoughts, let’s rot
Or should we not
Let’s rot. Let’s rot
Let’s not

Don’t think those thoughts
Don't think those thoughts

Loose thoughts will rot
And you could rot
Loose thoughts will rot
If they’re not stopped
Hey thoughts, let’s rot
Or should we not
Let’s rot. Let’s rot. Let’s rot. Let’s…
Track Name: Palm Reading
What am I supposed to do?
Should I pray for a break through?
What am I supposed to do?
I fear the answer is passed due

On the palms of our hands are little drawings
Can you see them?
It’s said they map out our whole lives
Do you believe them?

What am I supposed to do?
I’d swear to God that its break proof?
What am I supposed to do?
I fear the answer is passed due

On the palms of our hands are little drawings
Can you see them?
It’s said they map out our whole lives
But I don’t you believe them
Little erasers in our hands erasing the drawings
Because we fear them
We could write what we like but it’s all out of our hands
I can feel it
Track Name: I Really Am Here
Sometimes I find
I really am here
Sometimes I find
I’m not weird
Sometimes my mind
Is really quite clear
Sometimes I find
I don’t fear

Hey there why ya going?
When you know its cold outside
You say it’s only snowing
And you feel you’ve got to try
You think you’re only lonely
But I’ve heard those fingers cry
I can see those strings are helping
But they’re falling out of tune

And it seems so you
To wanna get some to
Don’t wanna be a fool

Sometimes I find
I drink 500 beers
Sometimes I drink
I drink beer
Sometimes my mind
It really likes beer
Sometimes I find
I find beer

Hey there where ya going?
Don’t you know you’re pain is real
When you were lost inside your conscience
Did you forget what to feel?
The song has grown demanding
But you’re falling out of tune

And it seems so you
To wanna get some to
Don’t wanna be a fool

Sometimes I find
I drink 500 beers
Sometimes I drink
I drink beer
Sometimes my mind
It really likes beer
Sometimes I find
I find beer
Track Name: Nothing Here
Only
It’s only me here
Only
There’s only me here
Waiting

Nothing
There’s nothing here
Empty
Empty space and air
Fill the air

Only
It's only me here

There’s only me
Here
Track Name: On Your Own Time
Find your peace of mind on your own time
I would leave you mine if I could find
I must have left it behind

So your brain is tired and it spilled on the floor
You shouldn’t wait for those kinds of signs
Everyone knows that you’re not going out of your gourd
This’ll pass and you’ll be just fine
Yeah you’ll be fine

So you say that you’ve taken two steps over board
But I can see that you’re floating fine
Everyone knows that you’re not going out on your own
We will follow you close behind
Yeah and you’ll be fine
Track Name: Open Mouth Insert Foot
Opened my mouth and I let out
Spilled it out to you
I filled you in on every doubt
And every clue I knew
It doesn’t matter now. Does it to you?
Why should it matter to you?
I’m feeling better now expressing myself
But I’ll feel the guilt in a few

I couldn’t chew on my foot any harder
I couldn’t chew. I couldn’t chew

All of a sudden we’re expressing ourselves
I feel the guilt. Do you?
Let’s build a pile out of all our doubts
And dump it in poems and tunes
We’ll cut a record and we’ll put it out
With pictures of us in the nude
All of a sudden we’re exposing ourselves
Picture our butts on the news

I couldn’t chew on my foot any harder
I couldn’t chew. I couldn’t chew

How can I hide now?
