Gone 03:20
Thought I heard you talking softly But I know the voices were inside my head Yeah, you're gone Yeah, you're gone Always knew that you'd be leaving 'Cause you said that you'd be coming back for me Yeah, you're gone Yeah, you're gone And it feels just like the first time that you said "It's happening again" Just like the ocean waves roll in It's the undertow that pulls us out again Yeah, you're gone Yeah, you're gone And it feels just like the first time that you said "It's happening again" What's happened to my head Still haven't met you yet... yet

This hotel room - Someone died When they found him - No one cried This hotel room - Haunted still No one told me - Haunted All these ghosts behind the walls You don't know what they saw Just can't sleep here - Wind outside Rattles windows - Chilled inside Just can't sleep here - Creaking sill Makes me nervous - Creaking All these ghosts behind the walls You don't know what they saw Nineteen sixty - Angry bride Stabbed her husband - Dark blood dried Nineteen sixty - Stain remains Under carpet - Remains All these ghosts behind the walls You don't know what they saw Rattle chains out in the hall Ragged imprints of the dawn This hotel room - Someone died Just can't sleep here - Wind outside Nineteen sixty - Angry bride No one told me - Haunted All these ghosts behind the walls You don't know what they saw Rattle chains out in the hall Ragged imprints of the dawn

Sophia 03:54
Wandering 'round for days Tuesday's washed away Live in the present tense Is this what you thought it meant? A home on holiday A place where you thought you'd stay A postcard lullaby Tempted by Closed eyes Oh Sophia It wasn't supposed to mean so much You know it only feels so distant With every hand that you can't touch What you wanted filled your eyes Need caught you by surprise The chasm is for rent Is that your punishment You've brokem every heart Broken every rule Hung on to every line Tainted by A lie Oh Sophia Its so hard to watch you learn Do you feel your heart forsaken With every lesson that you earn? Oh Sophia What would it take to be enough While the linings of your suitcase Hold all the things you trust Wandering 'round for days Home on holiday Plave where you thought you'd stay Tainted by...

Tribes 03:37
All of your time Is drifting away Thoughts lie in bed Sleeping the day All of your time You've been drifting away Out of your mind Not that you wanted it that way One, just one One, just one Now that you read about it It captures all your clan Now that you read about it It captures all your clan All of your world Is spinning around You lie on your face You're on solid ground Now here you lie With your face in the ground Rely on your faith And your world spins around One, just one One, just one Now that you read about it It captures all your clan Now that you read about it It captures all your clan May you find one everywhere May you find one everywhere All of your time Is drifting away

Humming 04:07
Sometimes I know what life's all about There is nothing to figure out It's on the wind you know It's all the air you breathe There could be no way to disagree But eyes have never seen the sunshine From out here on the ocean floor Sometimes you see lights always on It'll reach you even when you sing along There could be no way to agree When it takes to the unknown You're only meant to be an alien You see run, you're not afraid to run Yeah, you're only You know you're only It takes the pill even that feels cold Takes the sunshine and makes it old You see run You're not afraid to run

Programs 03:48
The wait is calling you back again I don't know if they're coming to bat for you These are the reasons, these are the reasons you fold in two Pick any season, pick any season it's like they called them up for you Flash forward reason, calling me back Flash forward reason you're calling me back Bottled up feelings will fill to the top They will drive you insane Fizzle and you'll pop like a bottle of cheap champagne It's Monday morning and there's so much more Bankers and streetmen they all know the score These are the reasons, these are the reasons you called in late Pick any season, pick any season they all wind up the same Flash forward reason, calling me back Flash forward reason you're calling me back Bottled up feelings will fill to the top They may drive you insane Fizzle and you'll pop like a bottle of cheap champagne Bottled up feelings will fill to the top They will drive you insane Fizzle and you'll pop like a bottle of cheap champagne

Wait 03:49
I said it was a long time coming You said it was a long time past I ask you what's in store in there for us And now a memory is all I've got left So I'm gonna wait right here Because my head is finally clear So I'm gonna wait right here Because my head is finally clear So go and get back into your car I watch the sun come up and all the stars fade See it's the stars that kept me up all night Telling me everything would be alright Oh and I'm gonna wait right here Because my head is finally clear Oh and I'm gonna wait right here Because my head is finally clear I know you're gonna make it home ok You never made the same journey that I made You see I found someone in this smoke filled room And we're gonna be tripping soon Oh I'm gonna wait right here Because the answer's finally clear Oh I'm gonna wait right here Because the answer's finally clear

Aloha 04:06
Going where the sand meets the shore Nothing here could do much more It's hard when you're pressed against An island paradise But harder to listen To their advice Goodbye everyone I know Goodbye nothing here has grown Going where the end meets the or Nothing here could do much more It's hard when you're pressed against The islands or the ice But harder to listen To their advice Goodbye everyone i know Goodbye nothing here has grown Goodbye everyone that lended a hand Goodbye no one else could have better friends I'd like to see the raindrops falling a thousand miles away Goodbye everyone i know Goodbye nothing here has grown Goodbye everyone that lended a hand Goodbye no one else could have better friends

Mother Iron 03:13
O Mother Iron, Can’t you see the blackbirds steal All the seeds the winter garden Has managed yet to yield In the distance church bells tolling Candles burning low We share the words so soft, consoling, Freeing you to go I hold your ancient hand I smell the dying rose O Mother Iron, I can taste the bluebird’s tears As he sits and weeps with me For the ending of your years Standing by the gravesite, crying I can’t read her name December’s frozen light is dying It’s all a losing game I held your ancient hand I burned the dying rose O Mother Iron, I can hear the redbirds sing As they alight with hopeful thoughts Of an early Spring Standing by the roadside, waiting I’ll still make it home Vernal yearnings, slow returning As sunlight glints off passing chrome I held your ancient hand I burned the dying rose I sense you are at last at peace I know that you are home
