Track Name: Breathing Underwater
In the fire of the summer heat
Make your way to the sacred streets
Far enough that you can’t be reached
In the height of the rolling sun

Curtains rise when you make it back
Hang your coat, hang your holy head
Put your feet up in the table’s edge
Like the child of a chosen man



I can see a light in your eyes
Drowning in a dirty disguise
I can show you how you can breathe
Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve



So you can’t get your story straight
Where you loved, where you full of hate?
Heavy handed, an abandoned heart
Where you whole, where you torn apart?



I can see a light in your eyes
Drowning in a dirty disguise
I can show you how you can breathe
Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve



The day has come to step out of the dark
At the end you can finally start



I can see a light in your eyes
Drowning in a dirty disguise
I can show you how you can breathe
Underwater with your beautiful heart on your sleeve
Track Name: Find My Way Again
I didn’t mean to lose your face
I only meant to keep mine
I’m looking for a higher place
I’m hoping for a lifeline

Would you be the one to figure it out this time?
Will you stay the same while I make up my mind?



Please find my way again
So heavy hearted when
All I can find is solitude
Can I just leave this up to you?
Please find my way again



Another way that you could look at this is proof
That I know I need you
But I could chew until I break my tooth
On a grain of truth

Would you be the one to figure it out this time?
Will you stay the same while I make up my mind?



Please find my way again
So heavy hearted when
All I can find is solitude
Can I just leave this up to you?
Please find my way again
Track Name: Thornhill
On the ground with your face in the dirt
And the smell of the earth
But the plane keeps coming back around

On the ground
Your hands over your head
You could run again
But maybe you’ll just give up instead

You could call this inconvenient
But it might be what you needed



You can lay your head down
When you are safe and sound



Think fast or it’s over in a flash
Time to make a scene
Is it real or just a stupid dream?

Once again in the back seat
Tell ‘em to hurry
Take you to someone who just might believe

You could call this inconvenient
But it might be just what you needed



You can lay your head down
When you are safe and sound
Finally you can hide
Here on the other side



Outside the people walking by don’t know a thing
Inside your mind the truth could finally set you free
You’d like to blame us ‘cause we thought you were the one
But you mistook yourself for someone said and done


Outside the people walking by don’t know a thing
Inside your mind the truth could finally set you free
In the middle of the woods when you feel you might give up the fight
Any minute, any second you could start to see the light
Track Name: Hungry Ghost
I just can’t get out of my head
I’ve been hanging on by a thread

The harder I try the more I lose my grip
And the faster I run the more the fear digs in



Early in the morning I hate to see
The hungry ghost looking back at me
Standing in the mirror before my eyes
The hungry ghost with a face I recognize

Too much is not enough
Can’t seem to give it up



I can’t get this out of my head
All the different people I’ve been

If you see me again I might not look the same
If you call me again I might forget my name



Early in the morning I hate to see
The hungry ghost looking back at me
Standing in the mirror before my eyes
The hungry ghost with a face I recognize

Too much is not enough
Can’t seem to give it up



If I can fall asleep
Maybe I’l find him in my dreams
And barter my broken mind
For a slight reprieve
I would do anything



The harder I try the more I lose my grip
And the faster I run the more the fear digs in



Early in the morning I hate to see
The hungry ghost looking back at me
Standing in the mirror before my eyes
The hungry ghost with a face I recognize

Too much is not enough
Can’t seem to give it up
Too much is never enough
Can’t seem to give it up
Track Name: Bad Time
Run like you made a break
Cover up your pretty face
Pray that the light will change
Just run like you made a break

It seems like I caught you at a bad time



Oh oh oh oh
You just want the truth
Oh oh oh oh
All I want is you



It took me too long to start
Hold it up while it fall apart
The last brick probably broke your heart
Yeah it took me too long to start

It seems like I caught you at a bad time



Oh oh oh oh
You just want the truth
Oh oh oh oh
All I want is you



All I want is you

Oh oh oh oh
You just want the truth
Oh oh oh oh
All I want is you
Track Name: Lean In
This this the year we’ll make it clear
We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of
You’re gonna learn to let it burn
It won’t be one to walk away from

Head in the stars, well bless your heart
Sleeping so far away from home now
Never hold back or give it slack
This is the year, you’re finally here



While I waited for the rest of my life
Watching it pass me by
Holding the candle high

I found something at the end of the rope
Something that gave me hope
If I can catch a hold you know I’m never gonna let go




This this the year we’ll make it clear
We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of
You’re gonna learn to let it burn
It won’t be one to walk away from

Head in the stars, well bless your heart
Sleeping so far away from home now
Never hold back or give it slack
This is the year, you’re finally here



You say you’ve had enough
That you feel like giving up
Well I know where you are
The perils of this road
Look different when you’re not alone
So I’ll hold you and you hold on to me


I’ve been sending on the edge of a storm
Trying to keep myself warm
But we can begin to stand shoulder to shoulder and lean in



This this the year we’ll make it clear
We’re gonna show ‘em what we’re made of
You’re gonna learn to let it burn
It won’t be one to walk away from

Head in the stars, well bless your heart
Sleeping so far away from home now
Never hold back or give it slack
This is the year, you’re finally here
