Track Name: In & Out
I was born in a town
I don’t know at all
I really don’t know
How I got home
But I heard thunder roaring,
And it’s showing

We were born in a time
Too fast to hold
We really don’t know
How it got so
But we heard thunder roaring,
And it’s showing

If you were aware
Of how lovers
Somehow forget the world,
You’d see we’ll soon forget the world
We’ll all soon forget this world

We were born in a form
We can not control
We really don’t know
We heard thunder roaring,
And it’s showing

In and out
Like modes of music
Threatening the state
Standing at your gate
In and out
In means and motion
Knocking at your door
Not to come in, but more
There’s more outside!
Track Name: Uneven
Uneven, when I stay
Secret parts in me away
Uneven, when I lie
Secret hopes in me arise

So try to read me
Follow my movements
My ears are ready
To hear your changing
I’ve been around
And it’s been said

They call me red
Flame to be fed
I don’t mind
Flame left behind
They say I’ve burnt
Our small town down
I say I’m smoke
Lifted from the ground

Lifted
Bright eyed
Fool

And even when you stay
Secret hopes in you, my love, away
Uneven, when you lie
Secret hopes in you, my love, arise
Call it uneven
Moving past the feeling
Call it uneven
I do
Track Name: Then Again
It’s a matter of the space
Between you and I
I don’t recognize
A matter of terms
Too high to ground
And a breakdown
Under my skin
And over my head

It’s a matter of time
I can’t seem to find
A lack of signs
A question I don’t
Seem to complete
In a dead end street
Under my feet
And over my head

But then again
Sane men
Know when
They’ve become slaves
To their names

It’s a matter of theft
Of the colors you shed
And the king
In my head
Wanting the whole
Of something eternal

But then again
Sane men
Know when
They’ve become slaves
To their names

Oh, let the world stay how it is
I mean it’s always changing

Before your eyes
And under your thighs
Inside every thread
And over our heads

Oh, let the world stay how it is
I mean it’s always changing
Track Name: The Line
My mother does not stop me
From cursing through the evenings
She understands I’m angry
In a world that doesn’t suit me
Moving too rapidly

And my friends all talk the same
But their folks don’t understand
My friends never get things done
‘Cause they’re arguing at home
I don’t know why
They can’t see how

It’s so easy to change with the tide
And end up behind enemy lines
It’s so easy to change with the tide
My son, you don’t have to change your name
You’re not in another’s game
Refrain

Man, all they do is
Head into the darkness as if
Following the sun
Always on the run
Never get things done
I don’t know why
They lost their sky

If there is a line
You can stand on both sides doing fine
If there is a line
And you need truth look towards the sky
If there is a line
You can stand on both sides doing fine
If there is a line
Mother, I don’t care for where I stand
Mother, I don’t care for where I am
Track Name: Already
You can always find ways and make means
And then come back around
You can wait and find days to shake things
And then come back home
Oh, what a lonely state of mind
See you’ve done nothing with your time

Spending all those summers
Waiting for a letter
And then come back home
Shut your eyes and you’ll be fine
You’ve got to change life from inside

“All I do is try”, you cry
But you’ve never once got the questions right

And you can make everything happen
Rearrange it all you like
In order to win, in order to win
Oh, man, you’ve got to take it on your own
Feels much better, I should know

“All I do is try”, you cry
But you’ve never once got the questions right

Already
Already
Already
Track Name: Particles
Particles colliding in vain
When time won’t change a thing
Oh, my love, there’s no need to run
To see a beautiful world outside
All you do is clean your window

Things begin to slide in all directions
Our thoughts wish to slide that wide
Oh, my friend, there’s nothing to find
To see a beautiful world outside
All you do is clean your window

Everything is the symbol of something other
So here’s my guide to infinity
All my answers inside
My local universe

Oh, my love, there’s nothing to find
Oh, my love, don’t waste your time
Oh, my love, you only live once
Track Name: It's Been Said
It’s been said
The end was here before,
It’s better just to fold
And I heard
It’s not worth fighting for,
It’s never worth the fall

Maybe it’s me
But planted puzzles in your bed
All about books you’ve never read
They never pardon
It comes through gallops in your head
The feelings echo till you’re dead
Then they don’t matter

And I can’t
Act like I should care
About politics and air

Maybe it’s me
But from the height of my tree-home
You all look clueless, all alone
And never free
It may sound beautiful to see
All the things your garden springs
But not for me

Perhaps all I need to see is the sunrise
All I need to hear is the cry

Don’t they all act like they know
What they talk about?
