Track Name: Brother
It’s strange like a child from the womb
Or maybe Jesus leaving that dark tomb
I must learn to walk anew
In this absence from you

Brother I breathe for you
Who else could keep me true?

It’s strange like a personal hell
I’m feeling like an empty shell
And this morning I’m reduced to tears
Without you, without you near

Brother I breathe for you
Who else could keep me true?
Brother I breathe for you
And I love you and I love you and I love you
And I love you and I love you and I love you
And I love you and I love you and I love you

Brother I breathe for you
Who else could keep me true?
Track Name: Foggy
With ash in my mouth you tried to shut me up
In light of your doubt I acted so tough
And I cannot believe my lack of foresight
With hands so unsteady, with eyes all alight

Please hide your eyes from that which morning brings
The march of daylight shows all our shortcomings
And I stole more of you than I could bear to take
The mirror is so sharp, cut me lay me waste

I was foggy and I was greedy and I am sorry for everything
I was foggy and I was greedy and I am sorry for everything

You should let things happen to you more often, more often
Unclench your heavy hands and let your truth soften, let it soften

You’re my pretty little blind spot
All the things I wish that I forgot
Track Name: Great Canyon
Remember when you used to wear me like your favorite purse?
I was young and you were younger; it could have been much worse

We shared weighty, whispered words like kids in a treehouse
Weeding out our lonely thoughts ‘fore they had chance to sprout

Now we are the Great Canyon, a great divide indeed
The barren rock, a tourist stop, oh what a scenery
A muddled mix of wounds we lick and sun-soaked reverie
Now we are the Great Canyon, a great divide indeed

Remember when I used to hold you like my lucky coin?
I was young and you were younger two sides we tried to join

The Christmas lights strung in your room lit us up just like the moon
We learned to love that vacuum world and sang tender in tune

Now we are the Great Canyon, a great divide indeed
The barren rock, a tourist stop, oh what a scenery
A muddled mix of wounds we lick and sun-soaked reverie
Now we are the Great Canyon, a great divide indeed
Track Name: Lucy
Lucy can’t you see you’re so very free
To tear through the town like a practiced beast
You’re made of fire and there’s loving in your teeth
I just hope your zeal doesn’t swallow me

I’m a candle on your cake
Blow me out don’t make me wait
I’m a candle on your cake
Watch me melt into the lake

Lucy can’t you see you’re no good for me
You live in my bones like a kind disease
Ensnared again by your grapevine words
My head a swim, and my vision blurred

I’m a candle on your cake
Blow me out don’t make me wait
I’m a candle on your cake
Watch me melt into the lake

I’m a candle on your cake

I love you loosely
I need you to sleep
You’re slurring your speech
I love you loosely
I need you to sleep
You’re slurring your speech

I’m a candle on your cake
Blow me out don’t make me wait
I’m a candle on your cake
Watch me melt into the lake

You’ve got me all to yourself
You’ve got me risking my health
Track Name: Love In Me
There’s a lot of love in me
And in everyone I see
There’s a lot of love in me
We should show it more clearly

And you know, there’s no use in hiding who we are
And you know, there’s further to go but we’ve come so far

There’s a lot of light in you
There’s no doubt in such a truth
There’s a lot of light in you
And you’re shining brighter than you used to

And you know, there’s no use in hiding who we are
And you know, there’s further to go but we’ve come so far

If we believe in you and me why don’t we fight, my dear?
If we don’t run from what we’ve done then we will shed our fear
If we believe in you and me why don’t we fight, my dear?
If we don’t run from what we’ve done then we will shed our fear

There’s a lot of love in me
And in everyone I see
There’s a lot of love in me
We should show it more clearly
