Track Name: I May Be Right
i may be right
i may be wrong
i guess i'm sorry
it took this long
go run away
when it gets too deep
light the match
and let it put you back to sleep
it's alright
we can't say no
this run won't die
until we say so

don't let them tell you
to stay in the lines
this pavement is breaking
one crack at a time

i told you once
i told you twice
the third time charm
is the time i'll let go
go run away
when it gets too deep
light the match
let it put you back to sleep
it's alright
we can't say no
this run won't die
until i say so

don't let them tell you
to stay in the lines
this pavement is breaking
one crack at a time
Track Name: Stephen and Julie
stephen's a stiff
with a chain on his lips
yeah, me and my friends we saw it coming to this
julie's a jewel
but only in his eyes
she talks like a saint
but that's her walking disguise
in his world of black
she's the color inside
his page is blank
unless she paints him a picture

stephen is strange
when he gets all depressed
he digs too deep
then drops himself in the mess
julies a judge with some critical eyes
she talks like a saint
but that's her walking disguise
he wrote her a song
but she forgot all the words
he tells her to call
but she leaves her phone at home

i hope he'll rise above it
find his way then go off and run with it
but each day up until his freedom
i wish him well in her prison

stephen was sad
when september came
he said "i don't mind"
if we're together again
julie in june said "it's got to end"
she meant,
i don't think we'll be together again
in his life she's the star
no ones in between
to her he's just another car in traffic

so i hope he'll rise above it
find his way then go off and run with it
but each day up until his freedom
i wish him well in her prison
Track Name: Oh Freeda
oh freeda
i can't believe we're here
one moment we're right on top
and then we fall back down
oh freeda
just check out my idea
we'll travel the world
we'll find a new sky for us to see
let's just leave tomorrow
cause i've got no time
but time to kill
it's been a while freeda
what's on your mind?
i think i scared you away this time
but what is teen love?
besides some bowling alleys and movies
i don't know
i don't know
i don't know
i don't know
oh what the future holds?
it's still a dream
but yesterday is one day closer to you
oh what a shame it is
i don't know
i don't know
i don't know
Track Name: Backwards
thinking upside down again
still counting on my same best friends
i chose to hold this weight instead
cause that train won't come if you pretend
i'm walking backwards just to find
some sort of truth behind the story lines
inside this twisting, turning, rhyme scheme
is a man with all new kinds of time to breathe

he found a reckless hideaway
she finds him there they spin away
outside the sun is burning cold again
heat up the winter and come back home again
cause this evenings paradise sinks through my bones
rich from the waters and now my need has grown

thinking upside down again
still drinking with my same best friends
i chose to walk this way instead
cause that train won't come if you pretend
Track Name: Right Directions
i'll turn away
before i'll turn it down
waiting on these pilots
telling me what's left and right
like they've got right directions
let's map it out
let's break it down
waiting on these patrons
but i don't want your money folks
i just want your attention

i hope i'm not
scared of what they say
if they all
start to walk my way

i'll fake the grin
and hold the pose
waiting to get noticed
is it him or me
who plays the roll?
who's got right directions
standing tall
and feeling small
begging for some pride
is it him or me
who lives to die
and shines without some notice

i hope i'm not
scared of what they say
if they all
start to walk my way
i hope i'm not
scared of what they say
if they all
start to walk my way
Track Name: Until We're Bones
so late
to make the pledge
so i just wait
and play around
inside the place
where all my bones we're grown
lifting a household full of stone

i think
inside a waiting room
i hate
the smell of hospitals
but it takes
doctors to arrange a cure
lifting a dead man full of stone

her face
brings light and color
to the days
when i just can't contain the weight
she makes me feel at home
shocking a heart that's made of stone

awake
the streets alive again
it's time
to blend with the parade
this youth
we will change side by side
and dance along until we're bones

you know
there's no control tonight
it's true
this will come back to you
just float
along the tides again
then fall to sand just like some stones

stand up
and scream your lungs away
it's time
to blend with the parade
this youth
we will sing side by side
and dance along until we're bones
Track Name: Gee Whiz
one moment here
one moment there
we'll trace the distant sounds
i think i've met you before

one puzzle here
one meaning there
this case is not yet closed
i'm still just staying up late

i thought it through
and then forgot
you're up high
but i'm on top
instead of pulling at the threads
i'm coming up
gee whiz, i'm screwed

once quiet here,
get busy there,
they'll trace the distant sounds
i'm sure i've met you before
think simple town
new strangers there
you get the idea
i'm bound to find a new place

i thought it through
and then forgot
you're up high
but i'm on top
instead of pulling at the threads
i'm coming up
gee whiz, i'm screwed
Track Name: Pouring Rain
a solution to a dead man's pouring rain
an obstruction by a young man, claim insane
simple patterns of the day job on your back
let your feet roll elsewhere
wing the track
i find words flow smoothly
towards your ears
i've got a whole new theory on bad ideas
it's the contemplating that's holding you
everyone's debating now
what's your view?
a role model is just what i'm not
what every lonely soul
must had forgot
is that a day job might just pay the bills
but the headache is what caused the thrills
once dreams make progress
cannons fire
most power is selfish
hail the liar
still our time is a wasteland
burning fast
every time that i need you
the time won't last
on top of my own world
the lights are off
every sense that i'm sinking
i'll shake it off
half of the time
it works all the time
it feels good to say
i'm still in my prime
my hopes are rising
well i'll be damned
must try and avoid plans
and beat swift scams
pretend that it's warm here
just for the night
let the truth soak in
and hope i'll find the light
i kept the answer left
right in the dark
at all the loose ends
wires began to spark
with every gutless insult
gutters deep
i think i found enough peace
to catch some sleep
Track Name: Operation Expression
settle back into what you know
cause there, it doesn't matter who you are
you seem so set on the company
that surrounds your time

all this sitting around
has left me hanging with clouds
i'll give myself the right of way
and try not to look back

i blew today right out the window
waiting for you to appear
a little truth can go a long way
therefore i constantly lie

i blew today right out the window
just like the day before
nothing to do but pick apart the scene
i swear i'll never know
Track Name: Ship O' Fools
good morning
it's time to wake up
she picked me feet up
then dragged me right outside

we're walking
to the trails next door
leave your head next door
and let's just walk for a while

then later
in the afternoon
we thought too soon
hearts break too soon
oh, whoopdeedoo

now waiting
for this time to speed up
she picks my feet up
then drops them back on the ground

good morning
it's too early again
damn that alarm again
go back to sleep again

big brother
where have you sailed to?
the pirates will find you
and bring you right back home

and mother
leave demons behind you
let love come and find you
just give and the rest will return

im calling
to my brothers to save me
but they need the saving
and this one is out of my hands

im writing
again to my friend
the distant stranger
i often relate to myself

uncovering
what was left above me
to hang like pine trees
then fall as the seasons change

now waiting
for this time to speed up
i picked my feet up
then dropped them back on the ground

it's morning
it's time to leave
off to find the breeze
full ahead
it's time to sail on

just dreaming away
is the way i handle everyday
just sailing away
on a wave out of New England's bay

just dreaming away
is the way i handle everyday
just sailing away
on a wave out of New England's bay
on the Ship O' Fools
