Track Name: Kobayashi's Ball
At the ball
I recall
When
You said
Here's the truth
Fruitless lies
So sublime
Damn
I thought I'd improve

To seem like the time
For the ages
But to cut deep
Hardly painless
At all
I am not so surprised

There's time
There are times
When
You act on your own

To seem like a time
For the ages
But to cut deep
Hardly painless
At all
I am not so surprised

At the ball
I recall
When
You said
I love you
Track Name: My Bones
Everyday I'm wondering
I'm packing up my soul
I got to get moving

In my world the ceiling drips
The water slips
You can't believe where I'm living

Recently the world is blue
Seen it all before
A hand it comes
It asks for more
Pulls me up
I can't believe that I'm living
Right now

Now...

And I'm pointed west
That sun ain't looking so bright
Got no rest
I reach for my clothes
My bones are heavy inside

(I'm alive it's alright)

Every time I hear your name
I'm starting up
And hoping that you feel the same
Simply put it's all a game
Such a shame
How are you gonna break away
Right now?

Right now...

And I'm pointed west
That sun ain't looking so bright
Got no rest
I reach for my clothes
My bones are heavy inside (x2)
Track Name: Woman In The Snow
Saw a woman in the snow
Standing still
Now she's gone

50 paces in a row
Won't be long
Won't be long

Forest runs our lives you see
The red sky run your majesty
Jubilation it comforts me
It comforts me it
Holds the world up
When we're all tired of fighting for our lives

Saw a future for myself
Standing still
Is it gone?

Million paces up the hill
Won't be long
Won't be long

Don't you speak a word of it
Now let it go and conquer it
This mountain range it's majesty it
Comforts me
I hold the world up
Just need some time
I am certain of that now

Saw a woman in the snow
Standing still
Now she's gone

50 paces up the hill
Won't be long
Won't be long.
Track Name: ROCKET_2_THE_MAX
Groove.
Track Name: Watch Out
A shock
Alarm
Two arms
I'm bitten up by something

A swell
Ferocious charm
I can't pretend it's nothing

The miles
Your eyes
Your smile
Whats the use in trying?

So far we've come
I'm done
I'm absolutely dying

And I never ever want to have a broken heart
A broken heart because of you (x3)
Oh baby
You got to watch out!

Heading out alone
Through it all I'm wandering
Spread it all around
This thing is meandering

But we've been here all along
So no not really leaving
Just breaking up the scene
Should be so relieving

And I never ever want to have a broken heart
A broken heart because of you (x3)
Oh baby
You got to watch out!

And I never ever want to have a broken heart
A broken heart because of you (x3)
Oh baby
You got to watch out!
Track Name: The Brightside One
Before you love again
True love must be your friend
In looking
On the brightside
Baby

Moving to the side
All things you never find
In your life
On the brightside
Baby it's alright

Mind the recent gap
Between you and the reason
For feeling
On the brightside
Baby

Try to be around
This ship could run aground
If you're not looking
On the brightside
Baby
It's alright
On the brightside
Baby
It's alright
On the brightside
When the air is hot for you.
Track Name: Sumthin' That I Wanna Do
I bend the rules at night
It's sumthin' that I wanna do

I lie awake at night
It's sumthin' that I wanna do
Sumthin' that I wanna do

I'll bend the rules tonight
It's sumthin' that I wanna do

And I better stay where I am
I reach the mirror
And I'm still asleep
It's just I'm coming way down here
My minds on the future
I guess I'll go upstairs again

I'll walk the streets at night
It's sumthin' that I wanna do
Sumthin' that I wanna do

I'll bend the rules tonight
It's sumthin' that I wanna do
Sumthin' that I wanna do

And I better stay where I am
I reach the mirror
And I'm still asleep
It's just I'm coming way down here
My minds on the future
I guess I'll go upstairs againnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

(space)

And I better stay where I am
I reach the mirror
This bayside life has got me full of fear
My minds on the future
I guess I'll go upstairs...
Track Name: The Mirror
The Window.
Track Name: Firefly
I just found out you weren't ok
The simple pages don't mean the same thing
Closer we are
The farther we go
Knowing being is seeing we're all smoke

I could stand here and spin a story
I could stand here and spin a story
Oh yeah...

Quick were the days we spent our time there
Under willows we counted our fears
Warmer it got the more the love shows
Bigger family we split between homes

And the way the sun shown on your faces
By the waterside
The lightning flashes in the sky
Those are fireflies
The room we made behind our eyes
Before we said goodbye

Falling leaves
We're back in our seats
Take a minute to walk in those feet
We made plans field, park and stream so
Excuse me please
May I have this dance dream?

I could stand here and spin a story
But I'm staying home
So I guess I'm sorry

(Yeahhhh)

I could stand here and spin a story
But I'm staying home
So I guess I'm sorry (x3)
Track Name: Just Great
"Never better" I lied
Put you down where I like you
In the corner of my mind
Far away from the racket
Of the actual going-ons
Surround yourself with light

Sometimes life can make you feel
Like you've lost the old appeal
That made you love the world
And smile

And all the while it's getting dark
The Window shows a setting sun
You're not the only one

It.
Will.
Get.
Better. (x2)

(Hang tight)

Sometimes life can make you feel
Like you've lost the old appeal
That made you love the world
And smile

And all the while it's getting dark
The Window shows a setting sun
You're not the only one

It.
Will.
Get.
Better. (x4)
Track Name: The Beginning
Well something happened
Turned it all around
I need a minute
To quell the anxious ground

(Woah)

When you're all alone
Your heart fastens itself amongst a
Perfect light
When your slate is clear

When you're all alone
Your heart fastens itself amongst a
Perfect light
When your slate is clear
Because of things you love, my dear

(Night)

Take what you're given
Throw it all away
But nothings granted
It's noticed and they say

(Woah)

When you're all alone
Your heart fastens itself amongst a
Perfect light
When your slate is clear
Because of things you love, my dear.
