about

Tales told by many people, but one consciousness, united in selfish selflessness. Seeking sympathy and forgiveness, they deserve neither.

Track Name: Do You Even Answer?
when someone calls your name
do you even answer
or do you run a little faster
away

don't you dare shift the blame
stash away your problems
they said you never will resolve them
that way

but what do they know
what do they know that you don't
because you've tried and tried and tried
but it never gets better

so what do they know
what do they know that you don't
it's getting harder to believe
that it ever gets better
Track Name: Running Water (Take Care)
gone away
gone away to face the day
won't be swayed
it'll work out anyway

do not fret or worry
it is not your problem
I will take care of it

come to play
stationed by controlled decay
overstayed
my welcome in this horrid place

lonely strides
taken by the weary-eyed
it's implied
they know naught but to deride

who am I to tell you
what is right and what is wrong
it won't matter anymore

life can be so fleeting
but I hope it finds you well
be there to receive it

gone away
gone away 'cause i can't stay
it's okay
it'll work out anyway
Track Name: Leave
i want you to go
leave
nothing left to show
leave
goodbye
yours is the sight of prying eyes
i just discovered

when will you let us
be
as done as I can
be
goodbye
free of the ties that had confined
us to each other

spinning faster
over and over
this is the sober
catharsis I need

in disaster
over and over
dispose of the clover
the luck will recede

i want you to go
leave
nothing left to show
leave
goodbye
continuing would be unwise
you just discovered

when will you let us
be
as done as I can
be
goodbye
your greatest mistake was you maligned
all of the others
Track Name: Bolinas Ride
lots of grey in the sky today
it might rain but that washes trepidation away
withhold your regards and let come what may
not a pain in the world survives the edge of the bay, so

hop in the car we'll arrive
cruisin' with you by my side
no time to watch the tide
let's have a wonderful ride

lots of grey in the seafoam
it's oddly familiar but still foreign to your comfort zone
tonight it's our very own four-million-dollar home
this is the kind of life we never will have known, so

you can leave all your fears behind
if you can afford it
enamored by the coastal brine
you'd better watch yourself

out from the city we've shied
now comes the time to confide
in what we can set aside
let's have a wonderful ride

lots of grey in the asphalt too
like the edges of the stop signs that we're running through
and the last laugh will be had by the overdue
that much i know is true

why be so brazenly inclined
when you can afford it
what happened to your time to shine
you'd better watch yourself
Track Name: Three Miles In
i passed the docks
i passed the drome
i think it's time to head back home
i had my fun
but now i'm done
a mid-day's fine vacation

i turned around
i'm homeward bound
but in my heart i'm still right here
subconscious stay
a dream away
a paradise location

oh yeah

another curve on horizon
calls to me
speaks to me

i'm 3 miles in
and not winded yet
i sit upon my throne of movement
owed to the chain
but to my disdain
the soaring light is lesser

the sun's going down
and I'm out of town
i think i've made a poor decision
i can't be scared
i'll just be aware
capitulate the pressure

oh yeah

another curve on horizon
calls to me
speaks to me
inclined to hear, because you have been so
good to me
but now i've bit off more than i can chew
look at you
it's getting dark
what have you done
Track Name: Holiday
i know you're waiting and i know that
it's been too long coming but i thought you'd like to know
you are my gift, my treasure and i
need you more now than i ever, ever thought i would
and i owe this to you
i haven't been the best i could be for you
but then who has
no matter how hard i try not to see or make believe
maybe it's okay that i need you more than you need me

this time of year's so confusing
i hardly know where to begin and just like that i'm lost
in youre eyes that aren't there
i haven't been the best i could be for you
but then who has
i owe you an apology cause now i see
maybe it's okay that i need you more than you need me
Track Name: Silkweb
somebody knows who's been wandering
into my home
it's troubling
i made it just for you
so stay

somebody knows who's been trying to
leave my home
and that's troubling
i made it just for you
you'll stay
Track Name: Sink
I've come to make amends with myself
and wish on a star for the best thing I ever had

but I can't look to the stars without you
so I look to the sea instead
and I say

try as I might, try as I might
there is no making it right
i can't rewrite, I can't rewrite
my little lack of foresight

the pilot light, the pilot light
shines ever so goddamn bright
to be forthright, to be forthright,
I had it coming, so I sink

I've come to make amends with my past
and wish on a star for the best thing I ever had

I had it coming
Track Name: Reaching
i'm sick
it's late
go back to bed

forget
about
the way i tread

leave me to dream and I will pull through
for you

this won't
last long
i promise so

the quilt
will take
me as its own

i know it's reaching but i think
it's true
Track Name: Red Heart LED
i do remember it so well
it's in my blood now, can't you tell?
you know i grew up observant

a house is only but a home
the fleeting semblance of a throne
i know i do not deserve it
never felt like i was worth it

although in those days i declined
to show my true feelings at any time
always had you there in my mind

if i could see the future so
i would have tried to tell you not to go

didn't ask for what is now mine
and the clock runs down so slowly
but everyone runs out of time

and in the months since it's been through
it still feels like i'm the one who left you
how could I have been so selfish

there was no funeral by sea
i let your wishes slip away from me
no excuse for being rebellious
even worse to have been jealous

and just when wounds begin to mend
no please oh no it's happening again
I'm not sure that i can take this
more despondent in my stasis
