Track Name: Retell
Retell the story of my youth...aw here it goes again.
Fortune, good fortune--we'll try to be thankful for it.
Fortune, bad fortune--we'll try maybe next time to dodge it.
Looking up a leak in what we said it was our ceiling, said it was our ceiling.
Don't interpret the words just hear me out until I'm breathless, oh I'm feeling breathless now.
Track Name: Except
I remember what you first said to me child.
I remember where you led me.
I remember all the feelings that we shared.

I don't know if you'll succumb to doubt.
I don't know if I could live without you.
All I know is that I want to stay so bad.

How come nobody ever feels the way I do?

Everyone is everybody else's stranger.
If you love her then it means you wouldn't change her.
I don't want to walk all by myself down the avenue.

How come nobody ever feels the way I do, except for you?
Track Name: All We Are
I can recall the day we got lost in the city...
All we are is all we ever are...all we are.

Thought I was certain, maybe I don't know.
What was certain will go.
All we are is all we ever are...all we are.
Track Name: You Got Soul
You got soul, let them know.

Any day this tired old bridge will fall and it will crumble
and wash away every single name recalled.
We will believe in every single word we never said at all.
We will be humble...woah, we go:

You got soul, let them know.
Track Name: We Lose Ourselves
I will write your name in the ledger even though you're not here.
I will sing your praises with all that I am.
I will know you again.

We lose ourselves every day.

Even though you're gone I can see your face...
even still I can't tell.
They will lift us up with all that they have.
We will know us again.

We lose ourselves every day.
Track Name: Faceless Ones
Five tons of feathers falling down all around the window.
When you are ready, I'll be there everywhere you go.

Who are the faceless ones?

Redwood on fire, bowing down to the ground in pain.
When you are ready, sun will shine every time it rains.

Who are the faceless ones?
Track Name: Caught on a Dead Wind
Caught on a dead wind up in the sky,
two of the best friends we had ever cried for.
All we ask is that you stay.

Caught on a dead wind up in the sky, lord.
Lost on a train ride down from Rockefeller.
Hold on to each other, we'll go where you want us to.
We should have a little faith.
We are alright together even when we're sad.
Alright together, we'll never be the same.

Rode up the narrow to Antioch,
pushed our way through even though it was dark.
I've got you and you've got time but roots were shifting underneath the ground.

Caught on a dead wind up in the sky.

Hold on to each other, we'll go where you want us to.
We should have a little faith.
We are alright together, even when we're sad.
Alright together it's alright...
Alright together, even when we're sad.
Alright together, we'll never be the same.
Track Name: Anything
It saved me once but I let you go.
It spared my life and I want you to know,
it saved me once but I let you go.
What words proclaimed will be.

That thought was self-contained on a wave in a room...a crowded room.
From across the way, I will slip away from yellow to green to blue.

Are the numbers equal? Woah, are the numbers equal?

Tossed and battered and moving all around.
You can say "I got a job for you, won't you help me out?"
Anyone can say anything to win, but when people say anything, anything can come around again.

It saved me once but I let you go.
It spared my life and I want you to know.
It saved me once but I let you go.
What words proclaimed will be.
Track Name: Set in Stone
You cut your eyes in the form of a question even though you know the answer.
I'll believe in anything that we can see through.

Even if it's set in stone, we don't really know.

Did he believe in something and did he tell you about it?
One and all we will go away from here.

Even if it's stone, we don't really know.

Taking everything away that you would hold when you gave in and let go.
Living in the waiting room, running from the autumn moon...I wouldn't know.

You cut your eyes in the form of a question even though you know the answer.
I'll believe in anything that we can see through.

Even if it's set in stone we don't really know.
Track Name: Daddy-O
This song I'm singing for my daddy-o.

We were thrown into a sea of lights.
We were grown but not grown-up.
We will fail until we recognize that we are serial.
We are serial!

This song I'm singing for my daddy-o.
Track Name: Cemetery Hill
Two leaves...one would slip into the sea, one would float upon the breeze.
Neither one would be afraid.
Oh to be an item not for sale.

Seventeen...three would fall onto their knees, four would give their lives for free. Ten more fall onto their knees when they see the first three go.

Up on cemetery hill, we will smile.
Track Name: Taking It Slow
Too many people get run down and we forget each other.
Too many faces carry around the pain that belongs to another.
We know who it is.

Taking it slow is the only way to believe in anything.

You've got the eyes of your mother, you've got the hands of a son.
Standing beside each other, see how the hands become one.
We know how it is.

Taking it slow is the only way to believe in anything.
Track Name: The Brightest Eyes
Oh the brightest stars shine down where we lay.
You've got the brightest eyes, even when they look away.
Oh the only thing I would see again is the brightest eyes just shining in the rain.

Turns out a river only flows one way.
We could walk on a path of fire today.
Think of all the people, what they'd say.
Turns out a river only flows one way.

There's a picture in my mind of you and me on a bed of leaves,
looking up at the brightest stars...they shine down where we lay.
You've got the brightest eyes, even when they look away.
Track Name: Stand in the Light
Stand in the light
Stand in the light
Don't take me for a ride
Just stand in the light.

I told myself "Don't try so hard, you'll miss the point...just sit down, everything will work itself out."

Stand in the light
Stand in the light
Don't take me for a ride
Just stand in the light
Track Name: Any Feeling is Fine
We both ran out the door. I don't wanna wait and see what everybody says to us...whatever that could be.

Don't get stuck in the signs, any feeling is fine.

Not even god could tell what we say from what we do.
When everything is moving, staying still can get you through.

Don't get stuck in the signs, any feeling is fine.

Why don't you give me a sign?
They say "why don't you give me a sign?"
Why don't you give 'em a sign, they say "give me a sign."
Track Name: Send Me a Line
Light on a resting place glows like a fortress.
Try, don't let the chance escape.
Oh I am wordless.

Send me a line.

One for the winner, none for the loser...all were beginners at one time or another.

Send me a line.
Track Name: Open Eyes
Gone away on a different day.
When we leave they try to make us stay.

We will change all through the day, but we won't let us get away.

Even if we leave tomorrow, there's a part that stays behind.
It is small but it is potent.
If we can't hold it in our minds that's okay.

Open eyes, asking you "please do not take away my youth...
All that I ever knew...closest I'd ever come to truth."
Open eyes, asking you "please do not take away my youth."

Here today on the crest of a different wave.
We will ride til we float away.

Even if we leave tomorrow, there's a part that stays behind.
It is small but it is potent.
If we can't hold it in our minds that's okay.

Open eyes, asking you "please do not take away my youth...
All that I ever knew...closest I'd ever come to truth."
Open eyes, asking you "please do not take away my youth."
Track Name: The Sound of Us
Stand me out in the rain I will believe you.
All my friends will walk up with a smile that I will fall into.
We will wake up to the sound of us lying down.
People wake up but fall asleep trying.

Hold me up to the light so I really see you.
I will look down and say with a smile, "Oo what a lovely view!"
We will wake up to the sound of us lying down.
People wake up but fall asleep trying.
