Track Name: Silly Elephant
Your wishes return unread
Lose the faith you used to make sense
Your wishes return unread
You placed a bad bet, you said, you said

From this point forward
I am starting my use of no words
I swore silence
And my silence I will keep
Move it back toward
A beginning when no was no word
To build a scene upon

Your wishes return unread
Lose the faith you used to make sense
"Go on, Your Wrong"
I'll move along

Take it down to the fireside
burn it up
burn it down
Fought with me far too long
burn it up
burn it down
I don't need it

Your wishes return unread
Lose the faith you used to make sense
"Go on, You're Wrong"
I'll move along
Track Name: The Rat and the Rabbit
I creep, I crawl
I'm a fly upon the wall
I breathe so small
If I move I break and fall
My wings, won't fly
They don't move with any try
I think tonight
I'll be crippled from the inside
But I'll break free

And you know you far too certain now
When there's nothing behind the curtain

Don't wait
Tomorrow Ill see
the other side of me
I can barely believe
the other side of things
that i swore I knew
But I was the one who couldn't come through

I leave my peace
On a wall marked do not read
If I should die
I'll have it locked on the inside
But I’ll break free

And you know it’s far too certain

Don’t wait
Tomorrow I’ll see
The other side of me
I can barely believe
The other side of things
That you swore were true
And I was the one who said I need you

Just say its too cloudy for a walk (tonight)
Just say its too loud for me to talk (tonight)
And I battle in the same fight (who comes first)
No two wins for the same side (who comes first)

Don’t wait
Tomorrow I’ll See
The other side of me
I can barely believe
The other side of things
That we swore were through
But I was the one who said I'd save you
Track Name: Science
You go your own way and I'll go mine
You'll see yourself out, and into the next house
with an open door policy
You run look for shelter I will hide
I prefer the silence, that comes with this science
And it's still brand new to me

No you're not the first one
No you won't be last
To think it's all but funny
You look through a half empty glass

But I can't bring myself to look through this down periscope

It's overcome with the water
It drowns out my point of view
And so I look to you
You bring it back to me
Don't begin to imagine
A life from the point of view
That you are unable to soothe me, move me

You go where you look what will you find?
I'd bet it's the same thing, you say "I ain't needing"
An unnecessary trip to
Me I'll stay in my lab I'll be fine
I got one to look out for
And I'm not so positive anymore
that this fabric can be ripped through

Listen here to many
respond to one or two
making enemies with those
who aim to bury you
Track Name: Everything Along the Way
The only soul who writes home
Cause he aint got nobody to hold his lonely hand at night
When he picks up the phone
She's Saying the rules have changed
and she's not coming home tonight

Is it alright if you lose it from yourself?
You'll wait
and they'll prey

Walking these streets they say
That's it easy, I'll believe it when you
back up everything you say

Lonely nobody knows
until they're watching you
You dare not leave a clue
They'll take everything along the way
Force you out of hiding
Take the time you're biding
To make the big escape

It's alright if you pick it from the shelf
You'll wait
They'll prey
You'll wait
They'll prey

Walking these streets they say
That it's easy, and I'll believe it when you
Back up everything you say
Making my peace I'll say that I need to
Well I won't leave until you
repair everything along the way
Track Name: To Carve Our Shapes
Wake up, it came earlier and earlier
Each night that we stayed up
Speaking of things we don’t know
In only time could we take up
the right words that we heard
If they allow us to break up
False transmissions of love
We might set this free
But I’m not waiting

You don’t know
You don’t say
I was so brave
I am the one who walks over the name
That you don’t know for me

Wake up, it came earlier and earlier
Each night that we stayed up
To carve our shapes into the sheets that we shared
In the bed that we made up
Only to tear it down again
We’ll shake up the rules we made up
To fake this love
But I like where this is going
And I’m not waiting

I am one who walks over the name that you
You don’t know
You don’t say
I was so brave
I am the one who looks over the name
That you don’t know for me
