Track Name: Silver For The Boatman
Silver For The Boatman

Bought into the tellings
Mortal and coiled it all
Stopping and still ain’t the same
As stopping and stalled
And still and still staring is
Different from standing eyes closed
Watching and waiting
Open and sitting exposed

Books in book jackets
In boxes hid under a bed
Bought them for barricades
All building blocks in your head
And finding a comfort
As real as the warmth of the sun
And holding together
You’re spinning, and spinning and spun

Come my love you’re are
Shining and shivering soul
Your edges are fraying
But that doesn’t mean you’re not whole
And sliding and slipping back down
Doesn’t mean you can’t climb
That silver you kept for the Boat man’s
Not needed this time
Track Name: Keep Me Cold
Keep Me Cold

Shudder in my skin
Your hands are cold
I see you from within
The place I never sold

Your abstract eyes they stare
They look right through
Like I’m not even there
There is no me
Only you

And you keep me cold
And I’ve never felt older then when I
Was left behind in your arms

You wandered off today
Sitting by the phone
A smile on your face
You left me all alone

The Wilde on the shelf
Collecting dust
The voice that spun those tales
Lost to me

Left to rust

And you keep me cold
And I’ve never felt older then when I
Was left behind in your arms

And you keep me cold
And I’ve never felt older then when I
Was left behind in your arms
Track Name: Pillow Fights
Pillow Fights

You climbed through my window last night
And you stole the sheets, kicked up a fight
You lay down on top of my bed
Then you clawed your way into my head

You went through all of my ghosts
Then you chose the ones that hurt me most
You laid them all out in a row
The ones I didn’t want to know

The memories live inside the shed
They mutter words we never said
They speak to spiders and candle wax
They play the games, ignore the facts

I closed up my eyes and my ears
And I hide my face to hide my tears
And you pulled my head from my hands
And said look until you understand

You’re always hiding from things you lost
As if you think there’ll be no cost
You’ve lost those days but if you stay numb
You will lose the days still to come

You reached through my chest as you lay in my bed
And you tied my heart into my head
And all of the hurt you released
It cleared my mind and let me breathe

Don’t want to feel and don’t want to care
When those you love aren’t always there
But if you always shut off the pain
You’ll lose a lot more than you gain
And I think it’s time that I let it all back in
And I think it’s time that I let it all back in
Track Name: Off This Earth
Off This Earth

I am the heavy night
I pay the undertaker
I'll take you quick then I'll
leave your body here to linger

I'll make your limbs turn blue
I'll disobey your maker
Disregard your family
Go against your nature

Pull you off this earth
Is it always worse?
What about the ones who welcome me with open arms

Pull you off this earth
You say it's worth
The love we think we understand we crave we kill for

I'll give you time to mumble
Darling make it count
Something they'll remember
Something they'll write down

Then I'll turn your body
Into nothing much
You can push, pray, enhance but it won't be enough

Pull you off this earth
Is it always worse?
What about the ones who welcome me with open arms

Pull you off this earth
You say it's worth
The love we think we understand we crave we kill for
