Track Name: Debris
they sing the same songs we missed their invitation rest our heads on spent shoulders
we built our own homes their cries spell confirmation in the end we speak new words
thank you

your buildings fall you failed to see it coming

you are what you do
you are what you say
you are what you are
Track Name: Sleepwalker
far removed from the circumstance makes it easier to make a move
the path of least resistance, insulated from consequence

sleep in
pass it on till the future no one cares till the future optimistic but your feet aren't moving
Track Name: Nautical Song
set out for go looking for sure we spend our hours looking out never within
you got a reason to be undisturbed a fire burning ahead of the curve keep looking
Track Name: Buzzer #1
you're a fucking mess you wanted it all but you were too busy dreaming to notice that you pushed it all away
why don't you change

have you heard what they say about you
just pay it no mind

you don't like what you find
instead of crying why aren't you trying

what you're calling faith is just a lack of form
nothing's moved but you're looking so far
you were too busy talking to look where you walked
you were too busy laughing to see yourself fall
i watch you dig your way out
Track Name: Doubletime
held up in all propriety left on a stage for reform so weighted by time
life's catching up

sold your soul for reference stand on a perfect line go hold your own life's picking up

fall back plan or not always a step ahead
Track Name: Weighted
here's the keys to the castle don't let the others in they can last all night in the rain what did they do to deserve my sympathy what did they do to deserve otherwise

fog lies high in the narrows casting shadows from the sidelines fine time for clearing out
the race begun contestants off from the start you missed the gun fire shot in the foot
and fell behind

waiting there don't want to keep waiting any longer
truth and beauty in the hands of the viewer
it's not a question of when but who is gonna do it
you got left by the wayside
