Track Name: How I Know
I slept through the storm
Woke up for the flood washed up alone and abroad
Learned to swim and I dug
A tunnel through the earth and came out on the other side of...

Now I captain this mattress
Across the carpet, along this atlas
But I still have this
Anchor in my head that weighs down my bed

Meet me where the waves
Waves break through the ground
Wait and I'll come up for air
Dig the surf and you will drown
Sand soaked by the snow
Soul worked to the bone
Found some sound under the sheets
Took to the sea and let it go

Woke up in my home
And I was alone
Looked out the window
That's how I know
Drifting back to sea
Noises follow me
The distance in between
That's how I know

I put my faith in you
And you faithfully made believe you trusted me too
The storm washed over me
And I got wet but I never got clean

A love that stays with me
Cradled in a dream
I'm not going anywhere
Just floating out to sea
Disappearing is easy
If no one sees you leave
I'm not going anywhere
Just floating out to sea
Track Name: A Writer That Doesn't Write
I should, I could, I can't and I know I won't
I say what I don't mean so nobody knows
(I say I don't know know what I want)

Too ashamed to defend
Things that I've done and I've said
Say I will, but I don't when I know that I could and I should
There is nowhere left to go that I know

Don't know what I want

A plan no one liked
So what makes yourself so special now
When you define yourself by what you're not?
They pushed you out the frame
A singer that don't sing
A secret know one keeps
A writer that don't write

And when it's done, we'll want this year back
I'll want this, I accept that

Fliers or liars
I won't or I will
So I left in the Wright way
When courtesy failed
Track Name: Cut That Wave
She's gonna suck you in and and she'll spit you out
She's gonna suck you in, make you twist and shout
Can't see straight but can see all around
Treading water standing on the ocean ground

You gotta cut that wave
(You' gotta ebb away)
You gotta cut that wave
(You will fall into into yourself)
You gotta cut that wave
(You gotta ebb away)
You gotta cut that wave
(You gotta run away from yourself)

Soaking wet, I'm not worth the weight
I'm not all this
I'm not waving, I am drowning
I'm not all this
Can't float away, forced by the waves
I'm not all this
Being driven by being left behind
I'm not all this

A comedy of terrors, I'm drowning in laughter
Stuck at the bottom staring up at the rafters
It's getting darker but I'm all washed out
Tide me over until she settles down
Track Name: Sinking
You're not here, I'm not there
Spins my mind, where'd it go

Right is up, left to drown
Ringing out, let it go
Track Name: All I'm Waiting For
I left pieces of me floating out in the sea
It baited my heart and It tore into me
Made a castle in the sand, and I rebuilt royalty
Without apology, Caused casualty

My heart falls to my hips as words fall from my lips
It's all I'm waiting for but I can't wait much longer
My blood sinks in the sea, it shakes my soul
And I can feel the beat, but don't have the heart to...

Paradise doesn't mean paradise when you leave
Every bow that I took, took the power from me
Took the blue from my eyes and put it into my veins
Now they're a just pair of kites, and I'm floating away

My heart falls to my hips as words fall from my lips
It's all I'm waiting for but I can't wait much longer
My blood sinks in the sea, it shakes my soul
And I can feel the beat, but don't have the heart to dance
Track Name: Leaving
Rest my head up in the clouds
Fall asleep on moving ground
When the sun has washed me out in the shadow of a doubt

Get out
Track Name: Gone
I'm gone and I don't belong where I am or where I'm from
I got stuck in between how it is and how it should be

You're the difference between disappearing and leaving
I don't want you to stay, I just need you to wait

I'm lost, I'm out of place
Am I moving on or just moving away?
I am mine to lose, mine to find
Found myself and lost the time

Are you waiting or have you gone?

So I made a mistake, and she's mad at a dream
And that's how I know you weren't waiting for me
So you can't see the wood for the forest for the trees
Islands of all sizes get lost in the sea
Track Name: Rolling
Who is me?
Off the rails and out to sea
Trapped in my tracks
Can't go
Track Name: Used to Be
So obsessed with talent only cameras can catch
A past I'd rather forget
Cause I know that I've done something wrong, but what?

Sadly, I'm not the child that I used to be
I miss my pets, I miss my family
I have none of my own to look up to me

We don't see, all the same stars
When I'm awake, you sleep, when you're up, you just worry
Cause you think that I've done something wrong, but what?
Track Name: Accelerating
Her eyes were locked, my tongue was tied
Our minds were lost, our hearts went blind
We thought we'd overcome our differences in time
But it ran out with her
Now every minute reminds me we're lost
Track Name: Chako Paul City
I get so sleepy
Please forgive me if I drift off during our wedding
These traditional things are such a drag to me
(You don't believe in true love)
But I'll wake up when you leave
(I don't believe in true love)

You say you goto Cha-ke-bo
Hide somewhere that is nowhere

You waste your time
When you tell me things like that
Can't change your mind
Once you go you don't come back
Please, please don't leave me
They're not as happy as they seem
Come back to me, love
And we'll wake up from this dream

You cut your fingers
Pretty little hands weren't made for manual labor
They were meant for making up your lips and eyes
(You don't believe in true love)
Now nothing runs, when you cry
(I don't believe in true love)

I'm so sorry
Drag my body
Just to pass and bring you back

They waste your time
When they tell you things like that
You change your mind
Once you go you can't go back
Please please, let's leave them
They're not as happy as they seem
Come back with me, love
And we'll wake up from this dream
Track Name: Romance Language
She understands the language but she doesn't speak it
I heard what she said, It didn't make sense
I don't know what she meant
Romantic, arguing semantics
I know what I meant not what I said
We went over our heads

I can't say it sincerely when I'm not sure what it really means
I can't say it any other way, another language, it's not the same
Too busy with translation to stop and listen
I was her third man in the third Rome
The first romance language she couldn't learn alone
(2)I am not myself when I'm not on my own/But I can't be myself when I'm in your home
(3)The last romance language I'll learn on my own

Took me in from the cold but she's got seven sisters
They want me, want me on the street
Filled with 60's spy film scenery
Push and pull, stressing out our syllables
She heard what I said but it don't make no sense
She doesn't know what I meant

I can't say it sincerely when I'm not sure what it really means
I can't say it any other way, another language, it's not the same
Too busy with translation to stop and listen
I was her third man in the third Rome
I am not myself when I'm not on my own
(3)The last romance language I'll learn on my own

I can't say it sincerely when I'm not sure what it really means
I can't say it any other way, another language, it's not the same
Too busy with translation to stop and listen
I was her third man in the third Rome
The last romance language that I'll ever learn alone
Track Name: Halting
Made a plan, made an excuse
Out of time out of the blue
Out of the sea and back to you
Tired and true

You're alone and I want you
I spin the globe for you
I spin my wheels for you

You don't know what you want
Track Name: Want
Tell me what I want and tell me what I need
Cause I don't see it
Tell me what I've lost and tell me where you'll be
That's where I'm going

Takes a captain to lead his men his men to mutiny
From faith to fury
Defect and decide what's wrong and who's right
What's true and what's a lie

A love I didn't earn is a love I can't return, a love I don't deserve
I love you, goodbye
I love you so I am leaving

It's all that I want
What do I want?
What do you want?
Track Name: The Lower 48
If you go around the world, remember you will end
At the same place that you began
A painfully plain explanation
For surviving in a place where other people live

Just cause it's what you want, don't mean that you belong
(Oh what do you want? It's never enough)

You fit in but it doesn't mean that you belong
You're surrounded but it doesn't mean you're not alone
Sit and watch it spin
Never leave again

More Abbot than Costello
Your wordplay is absurd
You took some nouns hostage
Declared a war on words
Stories and phrases that do not translate
You'll never rise above the lower 48

What do you know?
I learned...I don't know
Track Name: Drift Away (Reprise)
You commandeer my head
I forget everything i said
My arms are slowly losing tread
I float away with no regret

My ears are ringing
Please forgive me if i drift away
I drift out of a dream
The noises follow me
Its the distance in between
It's how i know

You read the stars, I do the math
We cut the waves and carve a path
I'm dreaming I was dead
When the surf is up it fills my head
