bags unpacked the laughter swam at night we made a fort of ladders and our stolen signs we clipped our icons hung them to remind us that the stars could shine forever acorns rained down the punchbowl flooded mornings serenaded goodness time flies oh sweet miracles the children who'll believe that playgrounds last forever sometimes I lie awake hearing your prayers and if I cry all day I'm reaching, you're there piles of leaves for cover Aztec soldiers over years I lost my shield you carried on the battle crawling through the trenches head held high & fighting sometimes I lie awake hearing your prayers and if I cry all day I'm reaching, you're there sometimes I lie awake hearing your prayers and if you cry all day, I'll sing "Heal the Pain"

The Dig 03:15
lead me to my final resting place numb me up so I don't dig in vain I'm buried again change it might the light I fear to face if only I deny a little taste I'm buried again (one, two, three, four, in my pocket eight in the safe feeling the walls peeling away how many years, fading away?) blame the rage that fills the empty space till I decide to send it in my place I'm buried again

Tara brines her pickles in a washing machine Buddy's honey's "suh-weet" now that he's used to the stings naming all the goats after the herbs on the cheese photoshop the apples off that rot on the trees will drinking mint kombucha cure our mad cow disease when will it eat us the gluten free us why this excess when hunger exists when will it eat us the gluten free us all this excess starves our senses Kelly's cookie binges force her not to be seen Scotty's pumpkin lattes, a perverted routine fed through second windows sucked the poison through straws hiding from a scale that fails confirming our flaws and children get a treat for being neat and we applaud? when will it eat us the gluten free us why this excess when hunger exists

Drilled In 03:27
you can't have that until you prove yourself compared to them, you're not as beautiful what if you were told that over and over again Over and over and over and over again you're not like them why can't you fix yourself too late, too bad don't take a risk, give up what if you were told that over and over again phrased in different ways but they're saying the same thing again what if you were told that over and over again drilled in, broke your will but rebelling until the end when someone who says they love you wants you to change they judge you plying your shape to a frame that you can't fit in it's taken some years to see it it's not about love or is it they're getting a high thinking they're healed inside through you you are beautiful in body, mind and soul and perfection dies for those that just use their eyes what if you were told that over and over again being yourself is just something you can't pretend what if you were told that over and over again telling yourself that over and over again images they bend, messages they send

waking my mind have faith in kindness we'll repay it's wasting life away to measure wealth by weight make it so the will to let it go I owe a lot for naught I'm shot and laying low worth a fortune he can't see when debts are settled set him free days of selling short I'll trade for buying care as currency appreciates what a blast we gave it all our best thought it would last but there's a fine line in keeping perfect time worth a fortune he can't see when debts are settled set him free the days of selling short I'll trade for buying care as currency appreciates

United 02:32
life will pause and then rewind here is so remote you launch a mission to the moon time will lighten troubles old open up, unite the souls that will hold your heart close tease the doubting voice inside dance around the room till it subsides fearful minds with empty cups you will be the first to fill them up all you show is love your engine red brilliance fed by a fire free fall flight, rising tide I feel you by my side sweetness savored all homemade for the ones that hunger most rose bouquets toast the days surviving what no one knows all you show is love

wait to see the whole sum wait, till you see what we'll become we are so hungry to feed our souls like zombies left condemned to roam wait to see the whole sum wait, till the sea swallows the sun time is so binding and the belt is tightening notch by notch we go wait to see the whole sum wait, for the clearing skies above when the earth is quaking and the waves are breaking it's Hope that we call home wait to see the whole sum

Changing Sky 03:06
fold your blankets wrap your trinkets watch them hauled away wash your handprints off the mirrors paint the walls a bluish gray all the joy around me makes me cry wishing you could see this morning light put my face on slowly drowning nothing looks the same befriending strangers cling to their words those who barely knew your name all the joy around me makes me cry wishing you could see this morning light all the beauty 'round me asking why you're not here to see this changing sky oh kind old soul you gave all you had to give for this changing sky my changing sky

Fade Orion 04:11
fade Orion life will go on push me through the days in the knowing the light is growing shift is surging in waves in days the waves the waves in days they discontinued our kind expect that they'll send a sign the clue inside of you sensations circle view the fields bounty yields from the sky decode the patterns in time and what if you're left behind vow to start anew and join a loyal few sold on their survival guide fade Orion life will go on push me through the days minds collective turned the tide elected scouts who'll reroute the maze of days the maze of days amazing race of days set a trail ablaze the Secret swallows our time we're swimming through tar and blind to the signals flashing green and the moments in between it's what we'll take with us on the ride fade Orion life will go on push me through the days where we're going reviews are glowing counting down the days the date we wait stay up late toasting fate for days end of days

woman at a window selling maps and guides locked inside a box to watch the clock unwind bend time dreaming of a universe with open doors into a dimension past the world she knows bend time she'll try woman at a window worn afraid of heights how far will she climb to reach her heart's desire send signs drumming circle flares to light the night on fire peering off the ledge there is no net she cries send signs she'll climb spark a flame go fuel it life is out there prove it woman at a window speeding towards the sky pilot on her own look down the world below hold tight mission to explore a deeper space the stars smile on her face could there be something more hold tight she'll fly

just living on a sunday morning got my toast and tea and I'm warm and I just thought I'd think about all the things to get and keep getting, never enough not enough and never ending I just thought I'd think about the comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky but could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the here and now, here and now parody of yourself in color, giving it to everybody but your mother you've got much to think about soaring higher with every treason never justify, never reason you've got much to think about.... and it might be... the comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky but could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the here and now, here and now and it might ...
