Track Name: Exponential
Hold me accountable for the first time
The burden's becoming too hard to bear
I can take your pain, my shame, if you want to
Just as long as I have my name to spare

So kick it, stick it to me
If that's what you got to give
No need to show it
I've blown it already
In time
Will you ever be satisfied, satisfied
No you won't
Do I have to hide, to hide
The cards are in your hands
Track Name: Dune Buggy
Some type of confusion conflicts you
from your head to your toes
the sweat on your brow conveys how
you know something nobody knows
Well I'm behind it, you're entitled to your woes
Self esteem gleams with perfect, but
a darkness also shows

Well you can try to evade the voice within
But you will find a hole
Never mind why you're asking why
Just listen, just listen
And you will figure it out
Track Name: Senseless Poetry
Standoff, staring in the mirror
No clarity to what's looking back
A man, maybe a figure
Maybe even a plan to contend with
But that's your own doing don't you know

It's the same old song, senseless poetry
Running on repeat every week sitting next to me
next to me

You've got the same old thing running on repeat
And it's a bleak mixture of your worst weaknesses
I've got to step outside, not to run or hide
I just need some fresh air
If you dare

The fog is gone, the picture's clearer
I shed my skin of the man I once was
I did not mean to steer her
A guiding hand is a laughing man

It's the same old song, senseless poetry
Running on repeat every week sitting next to me
Next to me

You've got the same old thing running on repeat
And it's a bleak mixture of your worst weaknesses
I've got to step outside not to run or hide
I just need some fresh air
If you dare

It's the same old song, senseless poetry
Running on repeat every week sitting next to me
Next to me
Track Name: Rewind
The more I try, the less I seem to understand
An open hand now reprimanding me
And so I go over in my head, over and over again
Who said living hard was easy

And so we go back to that time we had before
When it was cool, and you were my lady
And though I try to fight,
I try and try
Oh a fool's hope to abide by

Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't keep on falling down
Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't, I just can't
Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't keep on falling down
Falling, falling,
I'm just roaming around

And so you take that picture frame off the wall
The times we had, the times we care for
And so I go back and say, "how far do I need to fall?"
I guess back down to the ground
And so we go back and try to make a way
And so we go back to rewind
That feeling I do love, yeah that feeling you want to get to me
I try and try, oh a fool's hope to abide by

Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't keep on falling down
Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't, I just can't
Falling, falling, falling,
I just can't keep on falling down
Falling, falling,
I'm just roaming around
Track Name: So I Only Know
You shake me off while you tempt my eyes
Bring me in with no compromise
I shed my skin as I try to rise
Through the thick of it, I hope you're listening

Too many times I've been there before
Another night on the kitchen floor and
No road to an open door -- they're all gone

I walk the line trying to meet you halfway
Sacrifice so much more than I will ever say
Tongue-tied I go on my way and you're gone

So I only know how far I need to go
To get there, to get where
And so it goes, oh but I know
While I'm fighting you keep on hiding
So I follow like my father, and my brother after me
Not through my own volition, though it's sobering
I follow like my father, but never after me
And now you're gone

I walk the line trying to meet you halfway
Sacrifice so much more than I will ever say
Tongue-tied I go on my way and you're gone

Maybe it's me, am I just paranoid?
So much noise is filling that empty void
So much so, I'm just annoyed
But I'm strong

So I only know how far I need to go
To get there, to get where
And so it goes, oh but I know
While I'm fighting you keep on hiding
So I follow like my father, and my brother after me
Not through my own volition, though it's sobering
I follow like my father, but never after me
And now you're gone
Track Name: Venus
It's a shame, it's a shame, it's a shame
We don't see each other anymore, anymore
Because the blood and the beer in my veins
Soon will be in vain no more
It's so quiet and forlorn
But a riot will storm
It will break down the walls and the fences
In your skin and in your bones

The chaos in your head
The chaos in your bones

Oh, let it go
Oh, let it go
Come on

Every day, every day, every day
There's a picture running in my head, in my head
Of Venus and the stars in the sky
In the pines where god is drinking time
It sends chills down my spine
Down this valley of mind
Where you salt lakes of timbre and tone flow
Through our skin and through our bones

The chaos in your head
The chaos

Oh, let it go
Oh, let it go

You were right about the music: it's not wasting your life
It's just trying to live, it's just trying to live.
Track Name: Kappa
Saw my reflection, two images merged to one
Is it my perception, is it altered by the sun
Nobody knows it besides my old man
I think he's lost it, I guess that was the plan

Oh isn't that what you want
From the beginning you've been on the hunt
Searching, lurking, watching, hurting
It may be fun
Well watch yourself until you are done

You're the father, you're the preacher
You're the one that's making noise
I'm the weak one, I'm the meek one,
Oh do I have a choice
You're the shepherd, you're the teacher
You're the evil rising up
Oh I have a voice
Why don't you watch me now

Let's bring it down now, let's cut out the noise
You see me crawling, oh do I have a choice
Because I've been wandering for oh so long
Binding my will to all that's known
I don't know how far to go
The rhythm flows
Don't you know

Oh isn't that what you want
From the beginning you've been on the hunt
Searching, lurking, watching, hurting
It may be fun
Well watch yourself until you are done

You're the father, you're the preacher
You're the one that's making noise
I'm the weak one, I'm the meek one,
Oh do I have a choice
You're the shepherd, you're the teacher
You're the evil rising up
Oh I have a voice
Why don't you watch me now

You cast your resolutions babe
Cause you don't think that I know who you are
Playing games with those that bore you
Can only leave a nasty scar
Well I will be right behind you
Following your trail to the end
You may wear your disguises
But you know that you just can't pretend
Flowing with the wild, flowing with the wind
Making people smile that's your only sin

I'm the father, I'm the preacher
I'm everything
I'm the weak one, I'm the meek one

I'm the father, I'm the preacher
I'm the one that's making noise
I'm the weak one, I'm the meek one,
Do I have a choice
You're the shepherd, you're the teacher
You're the evil rising up
Oh I have a voice
Why don't you watch me now
Track Name: Someone to Love With
Here it comes, in atom waves
Never all at once, the feeling sways me
I give in, it's bigger than me
Bigger than all I've ever seen
It's plain to me

Because I tried, tried, tried
Tried to let go
But I can't live alone, no, no
No
I need to share, care, stare
Breathe your air
Someone to live with,
Laugh with

Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with
Someone to love with
Longing for someone to love with
Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with
Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with

Here I go, this feeling I don't know
Because I've been walking the same road
Until the soles of my shoes are worn
Down in the bloodline
A brother's running on bought time
Not a sense of what I may need
Until I bleed this oil dry

Because I tried, tried, tried
Tried to let go
But I can't live alone, no, no
No
I need to share, care, stare
Breathe your air
Someone to live with,
Laugh with

Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with
Someone to love with
Longing for someone to love with
Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with
Someone to love with
Find me someone to love with
Track Name: Walking Blind
Waking up sometimes, I don't know where to go
In the city that never sleeps, hearts beating for the show
But I won't wake for monday morning
When my time will come
Well no, no, no, no, no, I won't wait around

Because people come, and people go
Following signs of things they don't know
But I, I will make, I will make a stand
Until I find my way

Oh, because I'm cool with walking blind
No scaffold around me
I'll be fine for the time being
Because what you do and where you go
Has little to do with what you know

Because people come, and people go
Following signs of things they don't know
But I, I will make, I will make a stand
Until I find my way

What's the cost of living when the living is lost
What's the loss of giving when it comes with a cost

It's lost
