Track Name: Habibi
Habibti

dear, son of mine
rest, your eyes some more
the coast, is clear out here

you sleep, all that you need
all that you want for now, is here
hold, hold my hand
when you appear, to us

something pulls me, you found its source
your just a boy to be a man, but you have my blood
i felt, your body, pressed to glass
i saw your heart was beating, your fingers moving

there’s just a season, before you arrive

i know i’m used to just giving up
my mind will hide, but my eyes are open
i know you can, hear my voice
every word falls, into your head

there’s just a season, before you arrive

i see us, perfect reflections
the same skin, the same blood

the same history, is beneath us
something we can’t fight, without losing
we will never shed, something so close to us
or find the right place, away from here

there’s just a season, before you arrive
Track Name: Until You
Until You

wait, I can see
this thing grow bigger than we think
now, how could it
come stay with us, forever here, in our house

for dear, i saw you, i see you
clearer than the rest
and wait for it, to challenge
us, again

don’t go close, your eyes
on this

feeling half away
feeling, will return

seeming fine, i guess
things are just the same
trust this cane i gave to you
and feel its own strength

lets sit down today
its been longer than we wanted
what the hell are we here for.....

stealing every day, we’re feeling trapped
countless hours pass us by in wait
even when we say we will we won’t
stealing every day, we’re feeling trapped
Track Name: Gold Beach
Gold Beach

i swear we’ve been here once before
stuck in the woods, looking for town
yes i’m sure

kissing the girls, tell em goodbye
let them know, you’ll come right back
yes you’re sure

looking ahead now, you can’t see anything out there
back in the car, its freezing cold
drawing hearts, on all of the windows
buying time

out on the path, i’m losing time
its hard to tell, if i’ve made any ground
where are you?

looking ahead now, i can’t see anything out there
its been a week, a tap on the door
not the same man, who left here before
from his home

further away, to find you again
up in the air, then back to the ground
where are you?

how could i tell you, how can i set myself apart
out on the canvas, i can stretch myself so far

i swear we’ve been here once before
stuck in the woods, looking for town
yes i’m sure

kissing the girls, tell em goodbye
let them know, you’ll come right back
yes you’re sure

looking ahead now, you can’t see anything out there
Track Name: Hands of Ether
Hands of Ether

you walk a perfect circle, always predictable
you left the winding path, you used to walk

i see different, something else here
damn the terms they yell, they’re not mine

i won’t blame you, raise my voice to loud,
i’m a lot like you, broken in halves

raise your hands up, up in the air
lets make this stop, before its too late

i can’t see this, hold it physically,
hands full of ether, i want to share

tell me something, i’ve never heard before
damn these terms they want, they’re not ours

raise your hands up, up in the air
lets make this stop, before its too late

i’m offering, part of me for part of you
it can’t go on, let’s cast our stones
into this void

i can’t remember, how we even came to be where we are
Track Name: I, Testify
I, Testify

one big grave, that will dig
we’ll toss them in and never respect their fate

we’ll court our friends, and tell them lies
we’ll tie their hands, behind their backs

i’ve never heard of something, so unjust
i’ve never been so mad now, in my life

with something we’re getting so wrong
how can we live with it? how can we live with it?

what will we say, to all of our sons
we’ll build the past, and make it what we want

they’ll grow up strong, without a clue
remember the words, that they trust us for

feeling like they know what, what they were told was true
feeling like their feeling, and that’s ok
i’ll never shake a hand that’s too eager to shake my own
i’ll never cross my fingers and wait for time to work this out
Track Name: I'm Not Yours
I’m Not Yours

it’s enough to make you hide
and crawl in my head
i am not yours
its just something you say

a strangers voice so loud
it echos and bends

comb this sea you know
in front of you
miles and miles away
you can’t see

a nervous force within
that you will suppress
a stranger’s voice so loud
it echos and bends

hold the hand you see, that gives you grief
hear the sound again, this silent song
a thousand lives to live, that you don’t want
Track Name: Everyone I Know
Everyone I Know

i’ve seen enough from hear, I’m dumb with fear
and living on the fringe
my lips will move, but never make a sound

reading through these lines, i’m cracking codes
and holding myself back
with narrow eyes, nothing here escapes

i’m just a pacifist, i’m passing time the only way i know

i’m just staring at the moon,
caught in the middle here like you

you’ve had to walk this earth, a different path
somewhere i don’t know
where the seasons change a different time of year

you’re just a stranger to me, but you feel the same
as everyone i know
i’m just the same, as full of shaded light

i’m just a pacifist, i’m passing time the only way i know

i’m just screaming at the moon,
caught in the middle here like you

help me, i’m sitting on the edge, with so much left to do
so much left to do
so far, there’s so much left to do
help me, i’m sitting on the edge
Track Name: Perfect Weights
Perfect Weights

i can’t see that far, i would never try
no words would leave my mouth, that i would never do
no second thoughts, for good

days just pass me by, my hands behind my back
a simple stare in time, leaves me where i am
no second thoughts, this time

once i belonged, to something else
so far, i’ve torn it all down
i know its wrong, to leave it alone
i can’t, just build it back up

and calling my name out loud
over time it starts

take it all back, i know i can’t do that
give it all up, i know i shouldn’t try
a hollow man, i cam to you this way
give it all up, i know i shouldn’t try

i can’t see that far, i would never try
days just pass me by, and leave me where i am
Track Name: Skin of Yours
Skin of Yours

who dimmed these lights too low to see?
just enough, just barely enough to
to cast a darkened shadow, just beyond me

skin of yours around me tight
like a shell, like a kid
i’m happy to be here, where else would i want to be

sounds off, heartbeat in my ear
i am close, oh so close
i feel your fingers moving, i listen to you sing

oh i can feel us moving, oh i’m sure we’re moving

lets move away from where we’ve been
i know, i know real well, you dreamt a larger coast
somewhere we’ve never seen

punch-drunk, i’m swimming in you deep
i can’t see
i’m happy to be here, where else would i want to be

oh i can feel us moving, oh i’m sure we’re moving

i can see so far with your eyes, your eyes
from coast to coast, from low to high
i can see every shade i need, i need
from light to dark, from white to black

we’ll shed our skin, to start over when we want
we’ll sleep inside, the caverns of our hearts
Track Name: Phantom Limb
Phantom Limb

we’re still sleeping, late from last night
i kept one eye open, all of the night
i place my hand, in the space we lost
i can still feel, a heartbeat and its fight

i can’t tell if i slept a wink
i keep running in these dreams
it doesn’t seem, real to me last night
it doesn’t seem, real to me at all

if only we, could disappear right now
i place my hand, in the space we lost
it’s better, that we keep this to ourselves
it’s better, that we try again

some, say a ghost will remain
walking, through our heads in our sleep
some, say ghosts will keep us alive
to wake us, up from feeling all alone

i touch your hand, to still feel the same way
hold my breath, so you can exhale
if only we, could disappear right now
touch your hand, and still feel the same way

after all that we’ve found
so close, now we’re not
changed plans, so fast
after all, that we thought

can’t keep thinking this will go away
hold my breath so you can bring
talking in our sleep at night
can’t keep thinking this will go away

after all that we thought
Track Name: Diving Bell
Diving Bell

i’ve been sitting on the edge
left to hang hear by my hips
stretched thin like canvas
i know its never me
at night, on your own
sink down again

i’ve seen this look in your eyes
every shadow that you chase
i’m just singing into night
too much staring at the moon
sink down again
i know its not me

of all the nights to sit so still
my lips still yours i’ll start again
a second verse another song
of all the nights to sit so still

i never planned this
or saw it coming
over me, yeah

every second
every minute
pass so slow, yeah
