Track Name: Break
i'm breaking in
i'm breaking sounds and moving echoes that hold us back

we're all alone
we're all apart throughout the places we belong

i held onto the last of ties
that we once spoke of and never knew that we would loose
and now i'm left swimming in thoughts i may regret

distance is just a choice we make
the possibilities of one to collapse will keep me underground
Track Name: These Walls Are Vagrant
i am standing at the corner of roosevelt and michigan
i'm staring down through the patters of windy noise
you stand in a smaller town, corn fields throw the money around
we are faithful now

i wonder what we'll make with all this noise

headless statues in the city park
their silhouettes buried in the dark
we are faithful now

i wonder what we'll make with all this noise

we spotted flashing lights in the sky
we held tightly to an ocean lie
these vagrant lights seem cold

i wonder what we'll make with all this noise

when we are down underneath the sounds of the places we used to live
we'll look up and see that everyone moves: it's everyone we know
Track Name: Faces In The Summer
i want to sit down underneath the staircase mimicking your every move
i want to bow down, press my ear against the floor
and hear the words you have to say

i want to come back
i want to understand simple plans like the others

those over zealous words, the ones that make you seem absurd
was all i ever wanted to know
it's to the point where i act like someone else inside
but never really get very far

i want to come back
i want to understand simple plans like the others

breaking it down, i can see that you were always right in front of me
in a different room, standing there
you're breathing out the thin and open air
i'm wondering why i can never move this thing along
i remain standing there because i am always right in front of me

i have heard you speak those words before
phrases so delicately turned for more
faces in the summer, we heard them pour down from the ceiling
you wanted more

i never wanted love, it's just another song
Track Name: Echoes In The Wired Room
when you said that you were older now
a tested sound, you were painfully down
the echoes in the wired room fell thin

a restless room tipped the pendulum flawless
in bleached air, mouths shut because we're nervous
father spoke, but i never heard him speak

a tiny city build of government funds
a mother speaks for her child of one
the rest of us read flyers and magazines

i find myself in a row of benches
a row of benches i can't seem to place
i breathe in as the rest begin to speak

i am patient but wait to see a resolve: i'm lifted in

now i'm running through the maze of corridors
my feet slow as they reach the fragile plane
you lie there with your eyes locked into space
deep breaths counteract emotions made
screams bleed through the halls and capsized rooms
they echo through in the widest sense to me
i stand alone in a caramel colored room
with every word i know that i feel alive!

when you said that you were older now
a tested sound, you were painfully down
the echoes in the wired room fell thin
Track Name: Different Rooms
you are moving from your house
you are a subletter with a silver car, couch, and a mattress bed
i am floating above the floor
looking down into a vast white room with possessions i've never seen

cityscapes and whiskey flows into my body just so i can feel much better
but only when i'm not alone

i'm just holding back the time
tiny memories in my mind
stored in boxes, songs, and jars: they captivate me
in these different rooms we tire by never die

sometimes i can feel the pull
of your soft spoken voice and your choice of words
when you're telling me to come back home
it's the way you frame your coveted prose
that keeps me locked inside the room down the hall
and i'm never going to come back out

age is lost, but suddenly clear
it's all i can do not to feel like a younger kid in the knotted flow

i'm just holding back the time
tiny memories in my mind
stored in boxes, songs, and jars: they captivate me
in these different rooms we tire by never die
Track Name: Figures
i stepped out to filter all the words
little ones that keep us whole

sleeping on the floor of your house
little walls that keep us whole

you can look upon the lonely sky
a search i've tried to keep us whole

but all i find are partitions between the sides
little walls that keep us whole

what lies above, i find, is an empty space of time
no deeper than the ground where we die
but sometimes i desire the figures high
to keep me here, to keep me whole
Track Name: Body Sound
i can't sleep, love
i can't feel love with these boxes on the floor
they form a circle of little cardboard walls
that bleed thoughts when i step inside

but i'm awake now
i get up and i drift through the labyrinth set of walls of our suburban house
how i wish you could see how i blend in the undertones: lifted out

every road, love, leaves me straight to the front of camera lens
that holds me close
i'm like a scientist, all revered in blue, with his thoughts in different rooms
when the pain kills, can i bend through your mind
like a ghost that knows the floor?
i wear an overcoat, like elegant man, with a passive-agressive sway

because you don't want to know, dear, how i keep my body sound
just keep me in the front room
because i'm a vulnerable man when i'm alone
and every time i go outside i clinch my inner thoughts
i revel in the pangs, dear, of the fear i bring to you: lifted out

locked inside of your mind where you cleanse the patterns the dry
and i don't mind what i see as long as i believe

that you will never know, dear, how i keep my body sound
just keep me in the front room
because i'm a vulnerable man when i'm alone
and every time i go outside i clinch my inner thoughts
i revel in the pangs, dear, of the fear i bring to you: lifted out

hold me close so i feel like none of this is real
just keep the lights on so i feel like none of this real
and i'm surrounded by home
Track Name: City Lights
these city lights are coming down and I'm blinded to you
the colored walls are a fixture, the houses are blue
you're on a stage above buildings, you're a talented man
pouring through all the figures that live in your head

these city lights are a joke and i'm watching you sleep
the colored walls are now faded, i'm afraid just to speak
the room is empty and peaceful: a mindful design
i use a camera to capture your stillness in time

i'm not afraid to expel all these continuous lines
separate rooms at a distance will help me decide
and i fell through what you thought was an elegant speech
i embraced what you thought was the furthest from me, from me now

you're slowly killing me, your love is killing me now

the city lights held you captive, and i'm resting my head
i look above and see nothing but an infinite thread
i speak alone and it echoes through an open room
i feel alone and i'm grateful there's nothing to prove

you're slowly killing me, your love is killing me now
Track Name: Halloween Parade
i can see past june and modern day
sitting high above this spacious state of mind that we keep
we're sleeping in the roll aways

i am lighting quick to point this out
with the summer heat now, we're plastered in our kitchen chairs
with every window cracked at dawn

autumn sets the tone for what's to come
leaving streets so empty, you hide behind your kitchen chair
and slip into the roll aways

the halloween parade comes once a year
feathered costumes cling to the people that you know in your mind
it's scary that you can't see in

lifting couches and tables from the van
put on your new sundress: dear, you live in an imaginary world
yes, dear, you live in an imaginary world

we die under the city's city lights
heaven reaches down and sweeps us to the river's flow
we sink beneath the roll aways

it's only from this place that i can see
the way you dress yourself, the way you hold the fabric's end
and spin until the crowd applauds

lifting couches and tables from the van
put on your new sundress: dear, you live in an imaginary world
yes, dear, you live in an imaginary world
Track Name: This Is New
i am waiting, and you are listening
we will rest right now
we will fight right now

i am patient, and you are patient
we will sleep on it
we will dream on it

i will wait to understand this love
you will wait for me to come around

i'm tired of this, i'm tired of this
as soon as we stand in the same room
this is new
