Track Name: Island Boy
Out in front of the pace.
Off the beat in the track.
Crack another, we could use the space.
It's just another moment
you will never get back.

You will never get back.

I had something to say,
Something useful to tell.
I'm drowning outside of my cage,
and you, you're fucking useless.

Island Boy. No boat. Waves swell.
You will never get back.

Oh, but I don't need the sky!
Track Name: Young Elder
How I've come to this,
is a mystery to me.
I've done everything I should,
to keep an even keel.
Still I'm adrift
Cursing all the times I spurned this gift.
And I strive now,
not for greatness,
but for balance.

Shift the ballast, trim the main sail.
Hardened hearts on cold soles.
Leeward if the other way fails,
and for answers, ask an old soul.

Ask an old soul.

So this is what I wanted.
To come into a calm.
But now I can't get on it.
Can't read the signs or sing the songs.
And one by one we run out,
of the things that keep us on the ground.

But love is for the landlocked.
Gotta keep your strength up.
Oars in when the wind stop.
And for answers, ask an old soul.

Ask an old soul
Track Name: Erasure
Wrong turn,
Right place.
Shortest life,
Longest wait.
Every moment bleeds into the other.
All these lines just run across each other.

Wheels turn,
wearing thin.
Oldest song,
latest win.
Like you found a new chamber in your heart.
Like hands that bruise holding you from harm.
To hold on to this feeling like no other.

Falling through your fingers.
Falling down.

Wasted.
Erase it.
Lovers embrace it.
Eyes meet, words spoken without speech.
Like hands that reach out when you need them least,
to hold on to this feeling like no other.

Falling through your fingers.
Falling down.

And what's left is Truth.
Track Name: Hold It In
Left the door shut.
Think I fucked up just by being here.
The rain did the job
the sun couldn't stomach,
and now I'm in doubt.
Quick, hide the guilt,
hide the laughter I've spilt
before Love catches up.
Got the world by the ass
on a downhill drag,
and I'm beyond burning out.

Hold it in.

Been raining for days.
Drinking for more
to ignore the hurt.
Keep saying I'm ready
for somebody steady,
but now I'm in doubt.
Run past the last one
further and faster,
before Love catches up.
Got the world by the ass
on a downhill drag,
and I'm spinning out.

Hold it in.

Honey, I think I just wore through the skin of this old overcoat.
It soak 'til the joints creak and carry me under the ground again.

Hold it in.
Track Name: See You 'Round
See you in better dreams.
See you lost in between.
See you in prism song.
See you in times long gone.
I'll see you in my new light,
that you can hold deep inside.
I'll see you in darkest days,
when deepest shadows all hold sway.
I'll see you 'round.

See you in the things I steal.
See you in history's wheel.
See you off into the dark,
waiting for the tiniest spark.
See you when I forget to share
my light with people unaware.
I'll see you when sick mind takes hold,
and you can bring me back into the fold.
I'll see you 'round.

See you 'round.
