Track Name: Swing Set Overture_Scars
Spiritually hungry
Hemorrhaging money
Can't see in front of me
What have I done to me
Spiritually hungry
Hemorrhaging money
Can't see in front of me
What have I done to me

Sunrise on a swing set
Still scars on my hands yet
Sunrise on a swing set
Still scars

Look at the scars
Inside the mirror

There's evidence
Of a dance with danger

I don't even want to be the
One who saves this ship from failure without reason
I just broke my heart and came un-
done instead of running toward a better season

What tragedy
Have I even seen
It's far to late to come home

What tragedy have I even seen
It's far to late to come home
Far to late to come home
Far to late to come home
Far to late to come home



Look at the scars

There's evidence

I don't even want to be the
One who saves this ship from failure without reason
I just broke my heart and came un-
done instead of running toward a better season

What tragedy
Have I even seen
It's far to late to come home

What tragedy have I even seen
It's far to late to come home
Far to late to come home
Far to late to come home
Far to late to come home
Track Name: Day
Why do we not go slow
Why don't we go slow
Why don't we go slow
Slowly

Cuz I'm in a rush please move I'm in a hurry
I am a flailing judgmental jury
If you do not move then I will remove you
If you do not do
Then I'll go through you

Day in
And Day out
I'll be there

Even when

Day in
And Day out
I'll be there

In the end

(Why don't we go slow slowly)

Why don't we go slow
Why don't we go slow
Slowly

Why don't we go slow
Why don't we go slow
Slowly

Cuz I'm in a rush please move I'm in a hurry
I am a flailing judgmental jury
If you do not move then I will remove you
If you do not do
Then I'll go through you

Day in
And Day out
I'll be there

Even when

Day in
And Day out
I'll be there

In the end

Even when

Day in
and Day out
I'll be

Day in
and Day out ...
Track Name: Woebegone
Woebegone soul
I want you to know
Your dalliance with death is
over

Your troubles behind you
Scars that won't bind you
(and the burdens removed from your shoulders)

Now you may grow older
Poor prodigal soldier
'Till the last breath escapes from the lips of your smile
'Till the last breath escapes from your lips

No
I won't go

No
I won't

No
I won't go

Until my lips
Until your lips they show

I can't tell today from tomorrow
And I can't tell my joy from my sorrow
I can't tell today from my sorrow
And I can't tell my joy from tomorrow
I can't tell tomay from todarrow
And I can't tell my soy from my sorrow

No
I won't go

No
I won't go

No
I won't go

Until my lips
Until your lips they show

Woebegone soul
I want you to know
your dalliance with death is
over
Track Name: Show
Lay it down and let it go
i hope you know it's all for
Show

Lay it down and let if go
I hope you know it's all for
Show

Why do you run away
Why do you
Why do you run away
When someone loves you

Why do you run away
Why do you
Why do you run away
When someone loves you

Lay it down and let it go
I hope you know
It's all for show

Why do you run away
Why do you
Why do you run away
When someone loves you
Loves you

Lay it down
And let it go
I hope you know
It's all for show

Lay it down
And let it go
I hope you know
It's all for show
Track Name: Sleep Shade
In one ear and out the other
Just one tear call out to mother
She's trying to
She's crying to
She's dying to
And where are you
Through and through
Where are

In one ear and out the other
Just one tear call out to mother
She's trying to
She's crying to
She's dying to
And where are you
Through and through
Where are

I wore a sleep shade
Over what little sight I had
How am I gonna see the light
How am I gonna see the light
How am I gonna see the light

Be still as a stone
Don't wait 'till you're grown
You find your way home
You find your way home

Be still as a stone
Don't wait 'till you're grown
You find your way home

Enjoy the calm
Before the storm
Comb your hair
One day it'll be windblown

Enjoy the calm
Before the storm
Comb your hair
One day it'll be windblown

Be still as a stone
Don't wait 'till you're grown
You find your way home
You find your way home

Be still as a stone
Don't wait 'till you're grown
You find your way home

Be still as a stone
Don't wait 'till you're grown
You find your way home
You find your way
Track Name: Nature
If I spoke for nature
What on earth would I say

Watch your plan
Fade away

Little man
Watch your plan
Fade away
