Track Name: Skin Deep
I thought it was sweet but it tasted like sweat
the grit of the heart and the hedge of the bet
if wonder was wise would we ever regret
the things that we lose for all the things that we get

at the end of the road now baby
I'm six stories high staring down at the sea
watching the world wide waiting
let's dive in the water come drink with me

so cover your eyes and measure your steps
remember the love you swore you'd always protect
forgive what you can but baby never forget
the ones who have used you will do it again

at the end of the road now baby
I'm six stories high staring down at the sea
watching the world wide waiting
let's dive in the water come drink with me

so take it in stride cuz talk can be cheap
or it can cost you a lifetime of grief
but say what you will I ain't no poor baby sheep
if you want to know why it's called that hollow skin deep

at the end of the road now baby
I'm six stories high staring down at the sea
watching the world wide waiting
let's dive in the water come drink with me
let's dive in the water come drink with me
let's dive in the water come drink with me
let's dive in the water come drink with me
let's dive in the water come drink with me
Track Name: They Will Try
step but don't trip as you turn quickly measured away now
hide but don't sacrifice all that you've learned to employ

they will try to find your heart
they will try to pick you apart

for years of your life you decipher the memories changing
holding to truths that you know despite the warring of words

they will try to find your heart
they will try to pick you apart

can you speak without anger
can you listen in kind
can you promise forgiveness
well I'm still working on mine
I'm not trying to hurt you
we're too old for that now
but I'm sick to my stomach
and I don't know how
to call you
to call you out
cuz I remember
I remember everything

run for as long as you can but remember to breathe now
still as the moment in time when it all first began

they will try to find your heart
they will try to pick you apart
Track Name: Told You So
She said I told you so
and I just wanted to believe
I wanted
to believe

But I didn't know how very fragile
the push the pull the circle soar
and I wanted
the circle soar

When you walk into the
Sun will turn your wings to

And it's a crazy kind of coming down
just let your feet fall and touch the ground
your feet fall
and touch the ground

When you walk into the
Sun will turn your wings to
Fire will consume all you
Place before the will of...
Track Name: Voices in My Head
How deeply memory can cage our bodies in
How swiftly time long past can become now again
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my

But don't judge me quite so harshly if you've never known
Such storied sadness from the streets you once called home
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my

And I can't sleep alone
I can't be alone
alone

So take the call
take the pill
take the drink
take your will
take it on and on
take the fall
take the climb
take the shot
take your mind
take it all in all in all

There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my head
There's voices in my

And I can't sleep alone
never knowing when
I can't be alone
their voices creeping in
I can't sleep alone
just tell it like it is
I can't be alone

So tell it like it is
have you found some kind of secret relief
Tell it like it was
on the dark side of hunger and heat
Tell it like it could
still be raised from these ashes of grief
Tell it like I want it to be
cuz I want to believe
Track Name: Keep Calling
Caught in the crossfire
of loss and desire
I am breathing too quickly
I can't breathe at all
I keep calling you

How comically cruel
to end up the fool
a leper of longing
longing for more
I keep calling you

Cuz I
I need something
some thing
Oh I

no subtle warning
no snide remarks
no explanation
no heart to heart
no nothing at all

Why
this silent wall
I
keep calling you

[solo]

Why
this silent wall
I
keep calling

Cuz I
I need something
some thing
Oh I
Track Name: Dandelion Wine
dandelion wine
dandelion wine
I'll take my sweet time
with dandelion wine

could it be my only
blessed and holy
dandelion wine
dandelion wine
come fill my head with sun

dandelion wine
dandelion wine
