Track Name: New Age Farmer
Suddenly we are apart from ourselves
Reluctant to recall what was to be love.
Impossible to think,
But one in front of
The other's what we call moving forward.
Suddenly I'm gone from where we laid our
Bodies in a bed within the same walls
Impossible to think,
But one in front of
The other's what we call moving forward.

Sharing laughter is suddenly reminiscent.

She pulled me from the fields to stand before all
Of the city sounds, kicking holes in asphalt.
I'm kicking shovels harder like a new age farmer.

Sharing laughter is suddenly reminiscent.

(This is what we wanted, isn't it?)
(This is what we wanted)

Take me out to play
Well I could use to laughter in my life.

But brother where were you when I was kicked in?
I fully understand that it was a conflict
Of interest to include
Yourself in all of this.
But brother I wish you had been there with me.

Impossible to think,
But one in front of
The other's what we call moving forward.

Sharing laughter is moving forward.
Track Name: Paper Versions
If I drew my thoughts onto paper, I would draw
Paper versions of you.

There is not a life I cherish more in mine than yours.
You make me better everyday.

Better is not the best, and I know I'm not there yet.
But, I will try to impress you with all of my days
In hopes that we can continue to call each other
All mine.

Choices are made between love and hate.
I choose love. It seems to shake off all
Trifling theatrics of my surrounding scene.

Better is not the best, and I know I'm not there yet.
But, I will try to impress you with all of my days
In hopes that we can continue to call each other
All mine.

Agendas and aspirations may be relevant,
But how dare you think about
Shoving love to the side here.

Better is not the best, and I know I'm not there yet.
But, I will try to impress you with all of my days
In hopes that we can continue to call each other
All mine.

Oh my love grows... call me mine.
Track Name: Redeye
(Lila)
Long ride home
My eyes on the window
I'm playing peek-a-boo with the moon through the trees
And everybody's asleep but me. I'm driving redeye.

(Derick)
Most call home where they keep their bed and TV,
But home for me is not a roof or flooring.
Home is on the phone with green eyes asking,
"Are you here yet?"

Home is how I feel when I'm with you.

(Red light and green lights, stop signs and yellow lines)
(Head lights and green lights, stop signs and road work signs)

Any working man can say he's tired but a man of the road can say he's tired of being atop his tires.

The hardest part of living this sort of life is always telling her goodbye and hearing, "Are you here, yet?"
Home is how I feel when I'm with you.
Track Name: Piedra Verde
Two kids on the river beach
Splashing so in love like the movies we see on TV screens
The sun beats our bodies red
And sharing our hands for the skin we each cannot reach

Some glass in the stream put scars on my feet
As perfect reminders of the day I fell in love.

When you give love one look,
It's no real surprise to find
The love you give is love you get.

And I will love her 'til the day I day.
What I mean is I will love her well into the afterlife.
When nothing else grows inside or atop
of my head and my bones are brittle,
I'll place my spotted hand on yours
To express how thankful I am to have had you
In my life all this time.

When you give love one look,
It's no real surprise to find
The love you give is love you get.
Track Name: God Has Given
No need for revenge. Cut your loss and just walk away.
You will not be satisfied. You'll try until someone is dead,
And there's no need for this.
For you'll be in a cage for the rest of your days.

So go home, take a breath, take a rest, and just think it through.
For I'm aware that some will take advantage of the ones like you.
And to those, I say please

Do not take to my patience for weakness.
Do not take my kindness for granted.

For the one to blame is in the mirror
For the one to blame is in the mirror

Despite all the fuss, you continue to give and that impresses me.
Track Name: Saturday Morning Cartoons
Saturday morning cartoons on the television.
Well I don't want to change the channel to something
Informative of all the wrong.
Well am I growing old, do I remain a child?

I've noticed that the lotus land is where I reside.
I can't call it lost for I've misplaced my time.
But I will see it through.

There is a gold lining between the old and new findings.
So pick me up to let me down. You let me down.

School boy with his shirt tucked in, brace and plmpled face and quite reluctant.
Inquisitions fill his like, "Where would you like to be in ten years?"
Not where but what is what it seems and what I'd like to be is happy.

Call me a loser if I fall, but losers haven't lost, they've never tried at all.
Lend me hand or leave me be for my road to happiness isn't one of ease.

There is a gold lining between the old and new findings.
So pick me up to let me down. You let me down.
Track Name: Toolbox
You cannot see the stars without the darkness of the night.
You cannot love someone without knowing hate.
And happiness won't come without all of the sadness.

To ask me to describe how it feels when I'm without you
Would be for me to forgive and forget all you do.

You cannot see the stars without the darkness of the night.
You cannot love someone without knowing hate.
And happiness won't come without all of the sadness.

I stare at my toolbox and think of what I'll need
To fix all that's done here... a sadness falls and covers me.

You cannot see the stars without the darkness of the night.
You cannot love someone without knowing hate.
And happiness won't come without all of the sadness.

Do you hear me love?
Track Name: Teacups
You're a sunset in October. You're the blue skies of spring.
You're a cold glass of water in July running off my chin and though me.
You're beautiful to me.

Weary eyed, you'd lay your head on my chest,
And I run my fingers through your curly hair
To the rhythm of your breath... sound asleep
There next to me.

You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup in disney.

You're difficult but I love you
You're difficult but I love you

I possessed a reservoir of patience that could not be emptied,
But you've exhausted it all and I've grown unhealthy.

You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup across from me.

You once wanted nothing more than my name in years to come
when we are well on our way to growing old and gray.

Your eyes so green, but they will never land upon someone that will love you more than me.
Your eyes so green, but they will never land upon someone that will love you more than me.

You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup
You're a smile on a teacup
Yes I will remember
You in a red dress
Yes, I remember when you first kissed me.
Track Name: All The Scary Things
Not even my shadow will follow me to the dark.
Seems he melts into the walls when all the lights are off.
When my dear leaves the room, When my dear leaves,
She takes me shadow too.
Tell me one more time what it means to fall in love.
Seems to me in makes disappoints available.

Oh dear, you don't love me more than I love you.
Oh man, you don't love her more than I do.

Where I am going may be full fire and bones,
So my dear you may not want to come along.
But if you choose to view this scenery,
I'll break apart and clear away ALL THE SCARY THINGS.

Oh dear, you don't love me more than I love you.
Oh man, you don't love her more than I do.

All eyes, all eyes on me, but all my love is all I can see.
If all the fun and laughter is done, if all is tried before I become
Heartbroken... Naw

I wear a mirror on a headset to keep my back at bay.
It seems things are happening while my head is turned away.

Oh dear, you don't love me more than I love you.
Oh man, you don't love her more than I do.
