Track Name: Stranger Things
All he wants to do is play for money
All he wants to do is save the world
All the angels think he's funny
Say she's not that kind of girl

But all he wants to do is build a boxcar
And all he wants to do is watch it run
Leave the gravel in his backyard
Wave goodbye to everyone

Surely stranger things have happened
Surely fires follow rain
Shouldn't someone get all they ever dreamed of?
I just want to want again

All she wants to do is skip the sunrise
All she wants to do is miss a beat
Greet the morning with some surprise
Tar the floor with honest feet

Surely stranger things have happened
Surely fires follow rain
Shouldn't someone get all they ever dreamed of?
I just want to want again

All you wanna do is keep from running
All you wanna do is change your name
Pick the same chords you've been strumming
Tell yourself it's not the same

Surely stranger things have happened
Surely fires follow rain
Shouldn't someone get all they ever dreamed of?
I just want to want again
Track Name: Killing Time
Was it the time or the place?
Was it the call of the wild?
You can grow up for years and still be a child

Do you remember that life?
Or why you wanted to live it?
Sometimes God's the only one unforgiving

And all those years they said were ages
They were only days
And everybody said that 21
Don't feel this way

I'm not the first one to wake
But I'm the first to the morning
And if youth’s a waste of time, how is growing up so fucking boring

And all those years they said were ages
They were only days
And everybody said that 22
Don't feel this way

And all those years they said were ages
They were only days
And everybody said that 23
Don't feel this way
Track Name: Dead Man Walking
Save your breath for the ones who don't need it
You'll just lose your voice to the wind
Got a feeling but I just don't feel it
I've wasted my life once again

Everyday through that meat market clothesline
At night with the faded tattoo
Hard to tell that my numbers are stolen
And harder to tell when they're new

I've got mountains to spill
And I've got oceans to fill
But I died on those tracks so many years back
So restlessly endlessly still

What's the rail but a signed invitation?
Ain't living just toying with death?
Discontented with time in the moment
Resenting the ones that come next

Is there more to this fantasy nightlife
Or less to a man feeling blue?
Can't find nothing if you're never looking
Can't see what you have if you do

I had mountains to spill
And I had oceans to fill
But I died on those tracks so many years back
Still restlessly endlessly still
Track Name: This Weather
It's here again
The start of the end
It's been nearly a year since that cloak turned the bend
You turned away and the canvas turned brown
Like the leaves that have fallen now litter the ground
I hoped I'd be okay but hope wished on a black cat in town

Spring was a flood but October was wetter
Water fills holes in her hand-me-down sweater
If you know a place to call home then you'd better
I don't think there's much I can do in this weather

Lock tight the hatch
And light up a match
We can burn all our dreams, I just hope that they catch
Ain't it a shame just watching me go grey
Like the branches that bend in the dark of the day
And by snowfall I'm meling on ice just to recall the rain

Spring was a flood but October was wetter
Water fills holes in her hand-me-down sweater
If you know a place to call home then you'd better
I don't think there's much I can do in this weather

We've been hopeless enough that we know
After the frost there's nothing that can grow
The days move so fast but the nights are so slow
I can't see the sunlight from twenty below
If Jesus was born in this ache and these winds
It's no wonder he saw the world so full of sin
Hell, who wouldn't wish we could die and live again

Spring was a flood but October was wetter
Water fills holes in her hand-me-down sweater
If you know a place to call home then you'd better
I don't think....

Spring was a flood but October was wetter
She washed away and left only her sweater
I thought by this time I'd surely know better
I don't think there's much I can do in this weather
Track Name: Black And Blue
Call the fire brigade
I've been told where there's smoke there's a liar
Where's your mind today?
Catching clouds just to hold the reminder
That my heart's been black and blue

Think you've had enough
Watch the credits roll faith into numbers
They keep adding up
Cut the score, it's the soundtrack of summer
My heart's been black and white

Ain't this world made for someone like you?
Don't the waves swim for miles for a glimpse of your blue?
Won't these words once they're heard lose their meaning?
Can't you stop the parade or the violins screaming out
Oh she's gone and she ain't coming back
And there's no other version of time to distract
From the hope of another new curse in a moment
'Fore it passed you by and you don't even know it

Aren't these words so cheap
Thought I heard there's more wishes in the sea
You ain't in that deep
My heart's been blackened too
