Track Name: Children
Hey little boy
do you even know
what your daddy does
when he goes to work?

Hey little girl
do you understand
that the things you cry for
were made by younger hands?

Sooner than later
hope that you will see
that things are not quite
what they seem
So quit your cryin' games
for acquiring things
Open up your eyes
you ungrateful little shits
All this nonsense
day-in and day-out
breaks my heart
and sends me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget

We're broker than
we've ever been
But to happiness
no correlation

Cause the less we have
the more we love
and the more we love
the less that we will want

But the kids these days
don't know these things
they just walk around
with their heads glued
to a screen
while the world sits
at their fingertips
But they only know
how to be useless
All this nonsense
day-in and day-out
breaks my heart
and sends me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget

How does that cat
have your tongue
when he's right there
on the windowsill
I wanna hear you
I'm tryin'
I wanna reach you
But every time I'm near you
You send me

Runnin' to the woods
Runnin' to the woods
I'm goin' for the kill
Dance until we forget
Track Name: Black Sea
If you're in love, then you need to give me everything
You really love me? Well then, you owe me everything

You bring me to my knees
the way that you…
To re-align myself
I just enter your room
I think it's safe to say
that neither one of us
has started acting like a fool

But I feel it creepin'
Feel it creepin'
Through my veins
I'm sure this sea we swim in
ain't always the same
This lack of window
is truly gettin' to my brain
When I can't see
I just imagine

And darling, I can't let that happen

You seem so kind
but baby
he seemed even kinder
I know that you
will try to battle
ice with fire
The worst is when
I think I've healed
and then I try
and then I try
to love again
But can't

Cause I feel it creepin'
Feel it creepin'
Through my veins
And I can spot it
from a hundred miles away
So I grab my things
and I bet that
I'd still have a free hand
Cause I caught a glimpse
the rest imagined

And darling, I can't let that happen

If you're in love, then you need to give me everything
You really love me? Well then, you owe me everything
Give me your body, mind, and soul
Give it all to me
Track Name: Healthy Hours
I thought this day
would never end
I can't wait to go
home to bed
But really isn't it
fucked up
how we even say that?
Go home, go to bed
and dream about
what your life would be
if you didn't spend
every healthy hour
chasing paper

Pull your weight
Please don't wait
Pull your weight

Every coffee downed
and cigarette
They temporarily
help you forget
That at the end of the day
Debt is still calling you
to collect
So go home, go to bed
and dream about
what your life would be
if you didn't spend
every healthy hour
chasing paper

And you wanna run
You wanna run so bad
But you say you can't
And your list of things
that you lack
sure is growing fast

Pull your weight
Please don't wait
Pull your weight
Track Name: Raw Form
Really, I just want
a companion
to silently sit with
in raw form
Don't wanna feel
the need to
talk endlessly about
what we're doing
and what we've done

Cause time is
so precious
when we are together
he's blinding by nature
in raw form

The clouds will roll past us
as we lay together
The sky turns it's pages
as he keeps me warm
through the night
We are like magnets
can't sleep if we're together
Cause what good
would sleep do
in raw form?

I want you young and raw
Track Name: The River
It's morning
and today
is one for the pages
I have a feeling
that you will
forget your age
So close your eyes, baby
Nothing matters anymore
Except if you can
skip this stone
across the river

There will be days like this
of golden privilege
that knock the wind right out
of that organ you call
your tattered, broken heart
Tell me it ain't whole right now
Upon realizing
You're everything around you
and the Universe
No need for dialogue
when our eyes can talk
and say "I love ya"
Oooh-oooh, I love ya

Mid-afternoon
when you stumble
upon an oasis
You stop and wonder
"how can I take this all in?"
Overwhelmed by the thought
of something impossible
So you pick up a stone
and skip it across the river

There will be days like this
of golden privilege
that knock the wind right out
of that organ you call
your tattered, broken heart
Tell me it ain't whole right now
Upon realizing
You're everything around you
and the Universe
No need for dialogue
when our eyes can talk
and say "I love ya"
Oooh-oooh, I love ya
