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

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

Leave 04:17
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

Bolinas Ride 03:09
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

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

Holiday 02:37
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

Silkweb 02:38
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

Sink 04:28
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

Reaching 02:59
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
15.
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

about

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