Track Name: Tracing Lines
Now it's so many years ago,
That she said to me "don't you know,
Boy, your eyes'll never see;
It isn't what you take, it's what you leave.

"If you're tired of tracing lines,
and wasting all your precious time,
Don't show me your bleeding heart
Just pick up the pieces, find a new place to start."

(Dank Instrumental Pause)

"If you're tired of tracing lines,
and making changes in these times"
She said she didn't do her part
I said "just pick up the pieces, find a new place to start"
I said "just pick up the pieces, find a new place to start."
Track Name: At Sea
Take me back to all of the memories I can’t forget,
And don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall through the cracks,
My heart is lost at sea and out in the storm.

Lights of night scream “Can you believe how long it has been?
You carry with you all the troubles of the world on your back,”
Sorrow won’t you return to me again?

And if only for a moment,
I’d go back to when the world was young,
To feel that way you and I felt,
To have what now seems so far away.

Take me if you go, I can no longer feel the ground beneath my feet,
So hold me closer so I can feel your heart beat,
Because now it feels like we’re just getting farther away.

Take me back to all of the memories I can’t forget,
And don’t let me fall, don’t let me fall through the cracks,
My heart is lost at sea and out in the storm.

And if only for a moment,
I’d go back to when the world was young,
To feel that way you and I felt,
To have what now seems so far away.

And if only for a moment,
I’d go back to when the world was young,
To feel that way you and I felt,
To have what now seems so far away.
Track Name: Autumn Makes Me Fall In Love
Can you see me standing here,
And would you still remember me?
For all I ask is this dream,
That you and I once had when we,

Felt the world would never end,
And when I held you in my arms,
Now these blues are my only friend,
And I long for you to long for me again.

The cool in the air feels blue,
There's silence in your eyes I know,
The leaves are changing, I'm changing too,
Still autumn makes me fall in love.

The cool in the air feels blue,
There's silence in your eyes I know,
The leaves are changing, I'm changing too,
Still autumn makes me fall in love.
Track Name: Thirty-Five
Everything around here either feels like a train pulling away
and a face disappearing for good,
or sounds like the rain.

When I can't seem to find myself,
all I have to do is think of you,
or think of the past, and I know who I am again.

Sometimes it gets that you feel lost in the woods with no light or direction.

Most of the day's dreams melt into those of the night.
Sometimes the worst things in life are the best things,
sometimes they're just terrible.

When I can't find myself,
I think of you and I know who I am again,
but mostly I just get more lost.

When cogs stop,
When you look at yourself,
Do you think of me?

Do I help you find yourself, or am I there at all?

Am I in your head like you are in mine?
I can wonder and I can dream,
yes, of you,
but it only seems like I'm getting farther and farther away,
like a face on a train that's going far, far away.

Because that's all anything feels like now,
is just constant goodbyes,

To things that have never been,
People never met,
Things never to be done.

And the rain keeps my worry and fear and all of the evil down,

So I may think of you,
To remind myself of who I am,

and how much I miss you.
Track Name: (No) Relief
It's sad to see you go this way,
But I am not the one who changed,
I don't regret the words I said I'm glad you didn't stay
You wouldn't have seen it any other way,

You wouldn't believe how blue it's gotten me,
But I have triumphed over my aching soul,
Oh you'll never change, you're made to stay the same
For the rest of all your lonely days

And I know you'll never be as good again as you were to me
The flowers in your hair are slowly dying
You said "I'm moving fast and the future is bright"
You spent too long looking into the light
Now you're blind you'll never see,
Now you're blind you'll never

I cannot deny those better days
You were my addiction and I was bound
Held to a belief, "I'm a sinner set me free"
You never give me, never give me (no) relief

You never give, never never give give, come on
You never give, never never give giving your love
Never give, never never give give, come on

You never give, never never give give, your love
You never give, never never give giving come on
Never give, never never give give, come on

And I know you'll never be as good again as you were to me
The flowers in your hair are slowly dying
You said "I'm moving fast and the future is bright"
You spent too long looking into the light
Now you're blind you'll never see,
Now you're blind you'll never see,
Now you're blind you'll never see
Track Name: Postscript
Please don't let me wander down this road,
Cause you and I we have no time for getting old,
Come and drift away with me,
We'll leave it all behind so we can roam

Time keeps moving on so hold this dear,
Weary as we are, we can't stay here
Come and drift away with me,
The stars will keep us company as we roam

There's people to meet, we have much time to see the world
Let go of your fears and bury the crosses you hold,
And see life through eyes without persuasion and
Know that all this time is up to you

Keep me in your heart and I'll give you mine,
Hold close to you whatever you can find,
And in case it doesn't show
I don't want to see you go so soon

Just stay awake until the morning light
We'll chase the moon right out of the sky
Maybe I'll find you again,
Among the stars we once knew when we'd roam

There's people to meet, we have much time to see the world
Let go of your fears and bury the crosses you hold,
And see life through eyes without persuasion and
Know that I'll always be here for you
Know that I'll always be here with you
Know that I'll always be here for you
