Track Name: Stone
Walk away. Walk away slow. Don't hold your head so low. I was a stone to throw. Could your arms be warmer than the sun? Walk away slow.
Track Name: Wanderer
Wanderer, you shed your way through the riverbed, guided by the stars and moon and sun, covering your naked arms through the winter's end, blanketing the past you knew you'd run.
Track Name: Constellation
Do you remember June?
It rained for days, it rained in here, and you?
Do you remember May?
It shined for weeks and sang for days, in ways.

Now I can tell the truth.
I can stand and sing my pain to you...

I traced the constellations on your back.
Did you feel a dark vibration humming through the back of these tears?
I held your resignation in my hands
I set my destination to the sea and back to this land.
Track Name: Oval Sails
No more rain...
Only cold to comfort pain.
Starry skies hosted hope and cleared the night.
And that's alright, that's just fine.

But please, please, please, please, please, please, please
Send this away from here

Come the sun
Come your love
Come the moon
And come in soon

Come the sleep
Come with ease
Come your dreams
And Come your peace
Track Name: Home
Hovering through the walls and swimming fast
Chasing flaws and demons cast from you

Ivory keys surround the room
Cloaked in thread of gold and blue and keeping me warm

Home sweet home is a lonely road when your only home is a lonely road.
Track Name: Mayshower
Do you run to be free?
Do you run to lead me?
Well, I'd care for the sea.
And I'd care for you to be free.

Still, I ran and followed you.
And I ran through doors that led me to you.
And you showed me to be free.
And you showed me to care for the sea.

Facing open doors.
Dropped into the ocean floor.
Surfing to the shore.
Guiding fins to lands so poor.
Track Name: Reconstruction Manual
Turn this off, shut it down.
The pieces are all broken.
Fold it up and place it down in wooden box marked:
Fragile: Don't harm anymore.

This will heal itself.
This will heal.
This will heal itself.
This is real.
Track Name: Knives
A hole in your side, holding up knives again.
Hold in your cries, you're holding up knives again.

Fifty black balloons carried me through the weight of the truth.
And I opened my eyes to you...
A hole in my side, holding up knives again.
Holding in your cries, you're holding up knives again.

What's breaking you?
What's making you break me too?
Because you are breaking me too.
Break me in two.

Underneath it all, the paint and the stars and my paper back scars
I placed down my knives for you.
Track Name: Reeds
Push out the boat, let me glide through the reeds.
I won't drown in the current of everyone's needs.

Push out the boat, let me glide through the reeds.
I won't drown in the current of everyone's needs.

Drawn through the sea.
Drown in the sea.
Drawn through the sea.
Drown in the sea.
Drawn to the sea.

Push out the boat, let me glide through the reeds.
I won't drown in the current of everyone's needs.
(Everyone bleeds).
