Track Name: Lock and 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

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
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
