Track Name: Atmosphere
Are you tired? Are you shutting down in the afternoon?
Is your melody a little out of tune?
Are you cold? Even when I start a fire?
Are you weathering the years since you left home?

Cause I see your dreams are getting mixed up in this polluted atmosphere
And you need and I need a breath of air that we can share in this atmosphere
It’s all too clear we can’t find it here
No respite is lurking in this atmosphere

But wait, what keeps keeping you up at night?
And why won’t it whisper you’re all right?
Do you fall? Is the sky cold when you drop from such a height?
Do you think of this as free falling or flight?

Cause I see your dreams are getting mixed up in this polluted atmosphere
And you need and I need a breath of air that we can share in this atmosphere
It’s all too clear we can’t find it here
No respite is lurking in this atmosphere
And I know that you and I will never find it here
Track Name: Dog Bite
I am a civil war, I see no way out
I am longing for redemption, I might be freaking out
I was bit by a dog, I did nothing wrong
Now I have a reminder that there’s nothing I can change at all

In the past I couldn’t see any color
In the past I couldn’t sleep
In a past life, in a past life I was free

I went dark at night, I escaped outside
I was losing minutes by the hour and I knew that wasn’t right
I played a little game, I counted every step
When I got to a number I remembered I let myself take a breath
And I forget that number now

In the past I couldn’t see any color
In the past I couldn’t sleep
In a past life, in a past life I was free

Where were you when?
Where were you when?
Track Name: I Hope You Get What You Came For
I know to look for clues in your eyes
I’m reading a story in real time
In between the margins
In between the lines

If bleeding were unbecoming I’d be fine
But your battles are more exhausting than mine
Cry of attrition
Til we lose our minds

You found a way to wave away the thieves again
And I hope you get what you came for
Discouraged after everybody leaves again
I’ve been watching from the door
But I won’t watch anymore
And I hope you get what you came for

A blessing don’t mean a thing to the blessed
A sin is still a sin when confessed
If anybody’s listening
Don’t waste your time
Nothing worth repeating
Not a single line

You found a way to wave away the thieves again
And I hope you get what you came for
Discouraged after everybody leaves again
I’ve been watching from the door
But I won’t watch anymore
And I hope you get what you came for
Track Name: Lock & Key
Blue skies get a bit blurry
When the dark winds arrive in a hurry o-oh
And I don’t know where they’re coming from

You’ve got me in another of your stories
Where the king dies in a blaze of glory o-oh
And I don’t know where you get them from

Cause we always whip the wind from the sea
And we always feast from forbidden trees
And we always have a little tragedy
Which I wish you could just set free
But I’m afraid you make a better lock than a key

One day when I was braver
I was swept out, yeah the ocean betrayed me o-oh
And I thought I was gonna die

You saved you me many moons later
When the flags shook to signal something greater o-oh
You saved me and made it good to be alive

It’s nothing new
Track Name: Wasting Water
We waste a lot of time in a foreign land
No one gets along no one understands

That the holes - the holes we try to fill they only fill with steam
There’s renovation in these creationary times

Back down if you can, bring peace of mind
Don’t be scared to die, you never toed the line

But nothing, nothing that you feel, nothing that you feel is holding water
Don’t waste water waste designs - throw them in the ocean - throw them in the ocean
There’s renovation in these creationary times

An interruption lingers in the morning, in the morning I retire
Find a foreign station and throw your arms out, and close your eyes
And see the ocean cry

We waste a lot of time in a foreign land
Why can’t we get along, it’s time to make a plan

But nothing, nothing that we feel
Nothing that we feel is holding water
Don’t waste water waste designs
Throw them in the ocean
Throw them in the ocean
There’s renovation in these creationary times
