Track Name: Sticks and Stones
Sticks and Stones
 
It finds you, silent, and laughs at you while it is eating through your bones
But you’re sad to see it go
Tonight you, you slipped through, and found me when I needed most to be alone
But I guess that’s how it goes
 
Sticks and stones, far from home
Trail of breadcrumbs
Death by love, crushed the skull
Head forgets the soul
 
Lied and, confided, enough to fill me with the fear when I was young
Convinced me I was wrong
Uptight, misguided, scared of visits from the ghosts of fiscal ruin
Play the system strong
 
Sticks and stones, far from home
Trail of breadcrumbs
Death by love, crushed the skull
Head forgets the soul
 
Sticks and stones, far from home
Trail of breadcrumbs
Death by love, crushed the skull
Head forgives the soul
Track Name: Tourist
Tourist
 
Numb, plied, tired, nothing is wrong
Poised, employed, smiled, getting along
 
Time, age, fines, an hour alone
Compromise, strive, the best that you’ve done
 
Every word you’ve always wanted
All the ways I need to leave
Trying to find that what I had missed or
Hoping it’d find me
And I promised words I couldn’t
And you promised fruitless leads
Like a feeling from a childhood
Story in my dreams
 
I can’t feel it at all anymore
I can’t feel it at all anymore
 
Every word you’ve always wanted
All the ways I need to leave
Trying to find that what I had missed or
Hoping it’d find me
And I promised words I couldn’t
And you promised fruitless leads
Like a feeling from a childhood
Story in my dreams
Track Name: Little Shadows
Little Shadows
 
Look at all the things you’ve done
Made a pact with everyone
Blame it on a hotter sun
Blame it on belief it’s what you need
 
And it pulls at you from your blind spot, keeps you guessing at the wheel
Spies on you from the corner when you’re alone
 
Oh it’s nice, these songs you’ve sung
Little lies for everyone
Bless the child who’s got their own
Bless the union of this pair of souls
 
And it barks at you from the darkness, feel it nipping at your heels
Waits for you by the window when you’re at home
 
Even if it breaks your heart
Disappear, opine
Better off to leave a scar
Wants that won’t abide
Collect the pieces as you go
Build it over time
Divide the city with a wall
Cover over faults you feel inside
 
Far from prying eyes, oh you’ve found a real nice disguise, high and dry
Far from prying eyes, oh you’ve found a real nice disguise, high and dry
 
Even if it breaks your heart
Disappear, opine
Better off to leave a scar
Wants that won’t abide
Collect the pieces as you go
Build it over time
Divide the city with a wall
Cover over faults you feel inside
Track Name: Control
Control
 
I would lie awake at night afire
And watch the clock keep losing time and losing time
Keep losing time, keep losing time, slowly fading into silence
 
And no one lives forever
And I don’t want to be alone
I split my head apart and filled it up with static so that I could cope
Fluorescent, incandescent
Healthy glow of the human sun
A clammy grey approach to day by day and nodding because I couldn’t talk
 
Lights that shine both day and night inside
No surprise I’m not quite right, but I’m alive
Remove this knife, remove this knife, slowly fading
 
And no one lives forever
And I don’t want to be alone
I split my head apart and filled it up with static so that I could cope
Fluorescent, incandescent
Healthy glow of the human sun
A clammy grey approach to day by day and nodding because I couldn’t talk
