Track Name: Coming Around
I
Smile just smile
Hold it for the camera
And don't let it down
You're old enough to know better
Or at least understand
The lightning in your hands
Is just another flash
So let it fly

II
Deal baby deal
And don't bet to high
Nothing's understood
Even with the cards down
You thought you'd played a flush
All the hearts were red
But in the end
The jack was made of diamonds

III
Look baby look
See what you did here
And don't misunderstand
There's a way to stand
On these distant shores
Only way that you can
Love me in a year
Is if you learn to know better
Track Name: Snatched Up
Verse I
It happened to me boy
It happened to you
You had to stand aside
And now you're through
Doncha worry now boy
It'll be okay
They'll be another round
To get your say


Verse II
It happened to me boy
It happened to you
You got punched in the mouth
She ran you through
Dress that wound now boy
You gotta breathe
Even if she went on
To let you bleed


Chorus
Don't stand there, bob and sway
Close your eyes quietly, walk away
No use hanging out when that birds flown
You won't always be alone


Verse III
It happened to me boy
Just like you
Found that same scar
Didn't know what to do
Came from a different blade
Same jagged steel
Wipe the rust off
The wound will heal
Track Name: Osiris
Don't ask for forgiveness
Don't ask for a line
Grab your dancing boots
Put away your dimes

Cause when the night rolls in
None of it's be true
And all we keep
Are pictures of you

Baby, just tell me
whyyyyy you weep
Last thing anyone needs
is more sleep

Cause when the night rolls in
None of it's be true
And all we keep
Are pictures of you

Ohhh, the night sky
Ohhh, it's bright
Ohhh, the night sky
Yeah, it's alive

Take a bottle, take a pill
Just follow the hum
Everything's a plenty
So just have your fun

Cause when the night rolls in
None of it's be true
And all we keep
Are pictures of you

Ahhh, the sunlight
Ahhh, it's near
Ahhh, the sunlight
it...it..., makes me feel
Track Name: Easy
Verse I
Take the time to see me fly
from mountain tops
that never fall
And as the sun comes out
The flowers turn to smile

Verse II
How much time is left
Sand in the hands
that never close
But when I hold you near
There's nothing left to do

Chorus
In a great wide open
It's easy
It's easy
Nothing left to do
But easy

Verse III
Meet me meet me in the river
in the shade
we'll never leave
Like the pools and pockets
We'll circle 'round

Chorus
Track Name: Last Warm Night
I can't see, any other way around it
And I can't be, any other way you found me

Layin in a last warm night, smiling at the fool alive,
Come morning time, white coals turn to grey
Cause we can see, all tall fires have to die

And you groove and you groove and you groove groove groove

Verse II
You can be, any other kind of person
That you want, but you gotta bear a burden
Layin in a last warm night, smiling at the fool alive,
Which makes me see, there's no other way around it
Its the dance, that makes us keep on holding on


I can't tell
Exactly why
I can't tell
Exactly why

So you can't be, any other kind of person
I can see, that'll be what draws the curtain
We groove and we groove and we groove groove groove

We'll just groove and we'll groove and we'll groove groove groove
Track Name: Sand
Sorry I kicked your castle over
But the sand got in my eyes
Maybe build it somewhere else
Where the people are warm and nice

Verse II
Sorry I kicked your castle over
But the sand got in my eyes
Maybe build it somewhere else
Where the people are warm and nice

Any way we look at it
There's nothing I can do
Any way we slice the pie
That arrow it points at you

Sorry I kicked your castle over
But the sand got in my eyes

I can't change a dollar
And get back seven dimes
Forgetting about that thirty cents
Would be a fucking crime

Verse III
Meeting in the middle
No it just won't due
The clock is ticking anyway
Sorry, but you're through

Sorry I kicked your castle over
But the sand got in my eyes

Chorus II
Money isn't everything,
Sure, that's true
But the gold I'm searching for
It ain't inside of you

Sorry I kicked your castle over
But the sand got in my eyes
Maybe build it somewhere else
Where the people are warm and nice
Track Name: Sunday
I try and try and try and try but never know what to say
Got a ticket for the show, but I don't think that I'll stay
Singing from the inside, just forget the tune
So step outta line and get back in the queue


I try and try but I can never find my way into this distant space
You lead. I follow. Then I get so lost
But I never quite see your face
But I never quite see your face


But I never can remember
Where exactly we've been
You lead. I follow. Then I can't quite see
Lead me through the weeds
Lead me right into the weeds


You try and try and try and try, you always know what to say
Curtains always rise and fall, even when the lights are out
Couldn't ever hear you, cause always know what to say
And the show must go on, no matter what you say
Track Name: Thieves
To catch a criminal you must do as he does and do as he thinks
To catch a criminal you must do as he does and do as he says

To see his face you must take his place and run in his race

I could never find in his mind and do as he does

Couldn't quite see it never could beleive it what they say

They tell me again and again to think of him as a friend. But his eyes are black they never look back I just don't care
Track Name: Twisted Crystals
Verse I
In the shadow from above
You stretched out on the stone
Twisted crystals in the wind
Never coming home again
Search and search and search
To never be alone
Sleep came to you on the stone
In the shadow from above

Chorus I
I can't tell
And I can't wait
I can't see
Call it fate

Verse II
In the shadow of her love
You cracked through the stone of one
Twisted crystals in the rain
Screaming at the wind, to feel sane
Search and search and search you try
Hoping to be that guy
The stone it breaks, you feel so sane
Twisted crystals under rain

Chorus II
I can't tell
And I can't wait
I can't see
Call it fate
Nooooo reason why

Verse I
In the shadow from above
You stretched out on the stone
Twisted crystals in the wind
Never coming home again
Search and search and search
To never be alone
Sleep came to you on the stone
In the shadow from above
