Track Name: ballroom
well it starts in a ballroom
all the jokers slide across a bar
we step outside for a smoke
what a drag, and the fog blends with the sky

if its real, if it's always
a turning, pulsing hallway through your chest
a look inside, what a lie
just a boy, and two decades will just misrepresent

i'm over all i know
i'm over all i don't know
i'm over all i know
and all i've left behind

count it up in a classroom
as numbers shift and shout across a page
i'm too gone to stay in my mind collapse
and the ringing drums and strings take me away

i'm over all i know
i'm over all i don't know
i'm over all i know
and all i've left behind

well i had a dream that you died
you walked through a door into white light
and i didn't want you to go yet
but now i would know what it would feel like
there's nothing more real life
than the dream eye i saw through last night

here we are in a bedroom
you tuck your bottom lip under your teeth
and start to bleed
and the warmth rushes from your face and into me
Track Name: three years
what i've seen written on the bedroom walls
i've tasted, tasted it and seen it all
three years is so much time
but what's yours has always become mine

my hands still never seem to hold
just stand still daring the night to get cold
the rain came when the clock hit twelve
and sang and orchestrated swell

in a house alone
in a bed too big
it'll make a guy feel small
and the water droplet shadows
keep sliding down the wall

have we got it, blistered hands now
that we've caught it, could we make the stand
could we shake it, yeah, and bring it to life
just to take it and wonder why

in a house alone
in a bed too big
it'll make a guy feel small
and the water droplet shadows
keep sliding down the wall

what paul saw on the subway walls
such sweet talk, soft chalk scratched out small
this water, sons and fathers fall,
unaltered words upon a wall

in a house alone
in a bed too big
it'll make a guy feel small
and the water droplet shadows
keep sliding down the wall
Track Name: before we go
i'm trying to find something of mine
a change in my town, a different sound

before i go, before i go deaf
i'm gonna play loud

hot inhale, my brothers' sweat
fills my lungs, songs to be sung

take my heart from my hand
let it burst, let it bleed

before i go, before i go blind
i hope i see everything
Track Name: light
hold fast to your eyes, my brother, dear brother
for eyes are such wandering fools
one hand on my name, cover fear cover shame
the other makes jokes of its rules

and sister, my god, keep your blouse to your chest
'cause darling, we're wolves in the night
truth is a white tooth all dripping bright red
so don't wait to up and take flight

this is the sky
and far above your broken limbs and rainclouds
there's light, and it does shine
this is life
and it is yours, and you will find there's more
than meets the eye
and that's alright
that's just fine

they come with the tide, yes, they live and they die
they're sand in your palms so hold tight
but i've had this axe on the wall in the shed
and i've used it to cut all my ties

find me a train on its way down south
and hold my head by the fire
love is a stain and i'm washing it out
but good god, my arms get so tired

we are hands and feet
we kick and scream
we're pillars made of salt
we're hopeless starts
and broken parts
but the sun still shines on us all

this is the sky
and far above your broken limbs and rainclouds
there's light, and it does shine
this is life
and it is yours, and you will find there's more
than meets the eye
and that's alright
that's just fine
Track Name: body
i am not one body in agreement with itself
my arms, my legs, my head and heart
they all need something else
and i'm just tired
my ears just ring

"well hit those drums a little bit harder, boy"
let's spit and moan, and make some noise
let's drink it in and sweat it out
my body's built to make this sound

come on

hold me for a second 'cause tomorrow i swear i'm gone
like the smoke that fills our lungs
deep in my chest or in a song
it just won't fade
scars and remains

but i will sweep them up and toss them out
let fires roar and thunder shout
my crippled hands and bloody mouth
are strong enough to make this sound

you and me are not wandering this world alone
we're out at sea, but this ship is heading home
and i just want to believe that there is good in you and good in me
and our crooked hunchback youth is growing straighter as we speak

come on

i chased a lion through the snow and froze down in a pit
but i'm no strain of benaiah
and she's no perfect fit
and that's alright
it's no big thing

well, i sat beauty down upon my knee
for fifteen crazy crooked weeks
this bitter tasted behind my teeth
is worth the time, it's what i need

come on

you and me are not wandering this world alone
we're out at sea, but this ship is heading home
and i just want to believe that there is good in you and good in me
and our crooked hunchback youth is growing straighter as we speak

(i'll always be gold for you, so i'll always be gold to you)
Track Name: rooftops
from the top of that house
where the silence broke with the burning of the leaves
there, i thought i felt closer to god than i may ever be

from the center of the lake
where the rain fell hard and a song rose up from inside of me
there, i thought i felt closer to god than i may ever be

when my eyes are closed
i'm the keeper of every single thing i see
i just hope i can see it all
by the time the world is done with me

from the choir row
with my church robe on, and the ocean swelled all across my cheek
and i thought that i felt closer to god than i may ever be

in the heat of her arms
she melted into a thousand colored streams
there, i thought that i felt closer to god than i may ever be

when the streams of paint hit the tile
the color swallowed all of me
i got cold as the scream rung out,
"if you love it a lot, you gotta set it free"
