Track Name: Porch Swing Kids
Hiding out on your porch swing
Dos Equis all around
Cheers to those who choose to sing
Off notes in harmony sounds

The same we are, the same we're not
It's all a lie we told
That if you just smile once more then our hearts turn to gold

A bleeding life held in your hands
Take all you can from the Man
Fold it up and waste it away
Search for a love another day

The same we are, the same we're not
It's all a lie we told
That if you just smile once more then our hearts turn to gold

We'll just fly away
Track Name: Ribbons
Hear the sound from my lips
they're loose enough to sink our ships
but when angels will come down to pull us from the ground
heaven help us, their hands reach our own

We swing at ghosts and shadows
we walk the darkest meadows
we lost our way around with nothing left to be found
but the dust clouds blowing my feet away from yours

so pull the ribbons from your eyes
and take your last steps up to the mound
why should I be on your side when you fall down

We've been enslaved to this curse
where things turn better then to worse
we stumble out for air, we stumble into despair
who will be left standing when the smoke clears out?

so pull the ribbons from your eyes
and take your last steps up to the mound
why should I be on your side when you fall down
Track Name: Fill Me In
Fill me in
What's your name, what's your story?
How you came to be yourself
Just to know the one before me
All the times you hated yourself
Do you know what your smile was worth?
and how it warms up the world
You're the gift I didn't want
Til I got it for myself
and now I see you as you are
and what you are is rarely found
and though many claim to seek it
they only pass you when they see it
Track Name: Wild Eyes
Come what might, come what may
I'm all for the taking
Same ol stage, same ol floor
Only a different time

Baby I've been out of Montgomery
These wild eyes keep pullin' for me

Take off that cast
Your ankle's not broke
You missed that flood
Weeks I've been
It's autumn now
Bliss is on her way

Baby I've been out of Montgomery
These wild eyes keep pullin' for me

They keep on pullin'
Track Name: It Won't Be Long
I sat on the sidelines waiting for your open strike
I favored my darkness to your bright, lying light
While I was out learning, the levee broke and threw me in a sea of the blind
I'd stare at the ceiling, counting all the holes I could find

Well maybe someday we could learn to let it ride
Well maybe someday the waves will come and turn the tide

I feel like I've just been strolling through the spiderwebs
It's amazing how those little things keep turning our heads
But little did we know that we were just some feet in your marching line
Stepping on graves to find out what we just couldn't find

Well maybe someday we could learn to let it ride
Well maybe someday the waves will come and turn the tide

But it won't be long now

It's funny how life could have been
if we were just slaves to sin

It won't be long now
Track Name: Tattered Lines
We fell into a sea of menacing eyes slowly poisoning us from inside
We took our bows to help the room come alive
We would feed on your hopes to survive
We just shut our eyes and produce similar sounds for the ride

While we were left to walk with feet on tattered lines
While you were just left to feast on shattered minds

Let's stand our ground and hope our souls won't get sold to the highest bid of those who can't uphold
And i've bled too many times to bleed with my tourniquet in need
It's all i need

While we were left to walk with feet on tattered lines
While you were just left to feast on shattered minds

I've fallen from tattered lines
Track Name: These Ghosts
We broke down in France
When all roads lead to Rome
We'll bide our time just to take that same ol road

Where these ghosts come out to play

Decide my fate
There's no warnings to shake
I'll follow your way home
And you'll lead me back to the same

Where these ghosts come out to play
Where these ghosts turn out the same
Where these ghosts all know my name
Track Name: Give Out
Take all the time you need, you might as well say
Just to see all the things to see, to help you find your way

Maybe I'll give out

Well foot by foot that you went, the steps you walked down
Oh you took all you took to spend on your broken crown

Maybe you'll give out

We're living on borrowed time
Well maybe I'll learn how to read between lines we wrote
We're stuck in post modern

Maybe I'll give out
Track Name: Done
Remind me again why it is I do what I do
All the steps I take, misfortunes that I've suffered
Ive' suffered for your name and if there is any game

As it turns out, it's getting hard to do for you
Not easy to win for you, it's getting hard to do for you
But i'll still get it done

It was all for me and i wonder at your ache
and those blisters that you've earned for my name
I give you thanks yet and still for my sake
I need to rely on my own inner strength

(It's getting hard to do for you (and that's why it's hard for you)
Not easy to win for you, it's getting hard to do for you (That's why it's hard for you)
But i'll still get it done

I'll still get it done (I don't want nothing just love me)
Track Name: I Forgot You
How are you tonight?
The stars shine bright in taking you
The pieces on the ground formed patters of your way around

I know there's something more to this world
I've held on to things to hold on to
But I forgot you

I met you once down the road, waiting for the act of your bestow
Well guess how it's gone, your endless ways of always doing wrong

I know there's something more to this world
I've held on to things to hold on to
But I forgot you
Track Name: Same ol' Same
You're lookin', you're talkin'
What do you wish for?
You're losing by putting all your cards on the table just cuz you're able

Now look at what we've done
How can we hold on?
We fell in to what they call the same ol' same ol' game we all lose

When you're down on your luck
You count on me to bring you up
But what can I do but sing you this song, I'll sing you this song

Now look at what we've done
How can we hold on?
We fell in to what they call the same ol' same ol' game we all lose
Track Name: All in All (We Were Young)
You can't always fall apart
You can't always sing a song
So turn your tables around and lock the door

All in all, we were young

You can't always open this empty box of smiles
and these steps that we're taking well they only cost us miles
and the treetops were swaying but no one was listening
and the oceans were calm but no one was fishing
Who are we to say what is or what isn't?

All in all, we were young
