Track Name: Rainfall
I’ve been hiding under a rainbow
Where I’ve been living
And I’ve been laughing
Time slips through the mind like rainfall
The color's over
Forget about it
Forget about it

I am not afraid for you
You’re just living and learning
Go and sew your own truths
Letting go is the beginning of truth

And I hope that you know
It’s not easy
And I hope that you know
It’s not easy

I’ll be missing the rainbow
(My rainbow)
Well, in time I may forget about it
But the color will always remain
To see it again it just takes rain

I am not afraid for you
You’re just living and learning
Go and sew your own truths
Letting go is the beginning

And I hope that you know
It’s not easy
And I hope that you know
It’s not easy
And I hope that you know

You’ve got so much
Track Name: So I Live
I can’t tell my dreams from my life anymore
All things appear to me in a way that I can’t explain

It’s the taste in the water
The me in my father
The reflected rainbows
On glass and the backs of my eyes

So I live
In my sunshine cell
Watching the light dance on the wall
I play with the water in my well
Crafting a dream
In the image of my will

It’s all the same
The words that they speak to me
I hear in secrecy in my brain
As la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la

So I live
In my sunshine cell
Watching the light dance on the wall
I play with the water in my well
Crafting a dream
In the image of my will
Track Name: Catch A Star
I should be preparing a speech for his majesty
But you know
I probably won’t show

I should be competing for a lead role in a tragedy
All the while
I can’t hold back my smile

Man, I’ve got my problems and they label me dysfunctional
You should know
You’re a pro

Why am I always on the fence
Between a movement that makes sense
And playing a defense
Against the whole parade
When it’s a circus anyway?

All that you want
Is in your head to take
A vice makes but a fist
So it can’t hold your pain
The light slips past
It’s freer than we are
You can block out all the sunlight
But you cannot catch a star

I should be out joining in the games of all the boys and girls
Oh well
I’d rather play with myself

Man I’ve got my problems and the label me dysfunctional
You should know
You’re a pro

Call it vanity
I call it something in between
The damaged kings and thieves
And a mountain of belief
Stretched too thin to see

All that you want
Is in your head to take
A vice makes but a fist
So it can’t hold your mistakes
The light slips past
It’s freer than we are
You can block out all the sunlight
But you cannot catch a star

The everything of all
Is everything we are
And in our awe of everything
We forget who we are
The light slips past
Bound not by the sky
You can block out all my sunlight
But you’ll never catch me alive

I don’t want to be just another victim
I don’t want to be just another victim
I only want to be the light
Track Name: Run Run
In her eyes she’s dancing
Far away
In her eyes she’s dancing
Far away

Taste the blood
In your mouth
Tastes like home
Now you know
Don’t look back
You wont find love

Face to chase the sun
For god exists on the horizon

Run Run Run
Run Run

Find your happiness
In puppets that sing when you pull the string
What’s the worth?
I hope it hurts
I hope it hurts
My hand rests gently on my gun
You better run run run

Run Run Run Run Run
Run Run Run Run
Run Run

Find your happiness
In puppets that sing when you pull the string
What’s the worth?
I hope it hurts
I hope it hurts
My hand rests gently on my gun
Run

Run
Track Name: Passers By
Here I am
And there you are

We’ll walk with other lovers
Watch the same moon rise
Wake to any other while we dream each other’s eyes
Wish to kiss each other when we’re passers by

I wonder why

I feel sick
I choke
If you love it let it go
I know

Well it’s true that I’m sad
But I don’t know what that
Means in the scheme
So I don’t get too attached

And all the memory traces
Making outlines of the faces in my view
I would be lying if I said
I didn’t want to lie with you
And here I am
Where I’ve always been

Someday you’ll find your peace of mind
And maybe in time it will be worth the pain you caused
I feel high
Think I’m fine
Just been some time since I’ve been mine
All mine

Oh my my
Oh, my mind

You do bad
And you get praised for it
Do your best
Doesn’t guarantee a mess easier

Swallow your words and your pride
And your identity
Just to see
That you’re not the only piece

Well it’s true that I’m sad
But I don’t know what that
Means in the scheme
So I don’t get too attached

Here I am
Track Name: The Weight
I don’t want what I want
I only want the truth

Now
She’s kissing my wounds
Ah…

And the weight of
Time, tears and laughter heals all
By making the weight seem small

Now
She’s filling up my room
Ah…

I’m not done
I’m not done
I’m not done

There’s loss and gain in every wake
And everything is everything anyway
So ruminate away on what they say
It is where it is, and there it stays
To stray is to play
In a different way
And nothing more
This weight is unsure
This weight

And in time
Only the weight
Makes the weight
Seem small
Track Name: A Fine Line
I wish to get a hold of the poetry God wrote
But I like the way the blessed holy smoke makes me think slow

In my life as my right takes a stroke
Standing in my way on it’s own is my left
Oh

All of the lines on the path we believe in
Are only as broken or true as our reason
Take me home
I’m so much better alone
Take me home

Always in-transit
Entranced by the razorblades
Through the pages of weekly outrages
That weight you feel is not in your heart
It’s in your head

There’s a fine line
Between living a life and living a lie
It takes a mirror to find it
For it’s written
All over your face

All of the lines on the path we believe in
Are only as broken or true as our reason
Take me home
I’m so much better alone
Take me home

All of the lines on the path we believe in
Are only as broken or true as our reason
Take me home
I’m so much better alone

Walk
Your
Fine
Line
Track Name: Amen
We stare down
At the sleeves of our birthday jackets
Aware there is someone looking out

We fill our cups with freedom
And we leave no room for doubt

We breathe out
Consistent as the ocean
In this humble devotion
We’re devout

That’s all we need
Just a name to fill the spaces
And a good idea to forget about

Amen
