Track Name: Walls
Every aspect of her on display
Trying to get closer every day
I wrote her a song
But she would not come
Left it at the gate

I'll have to climb but I'll get in
I'll do what confounds other men
Though there is no door
I'll be trapped inside
Once I've gotten in
Track Name: Beautiful Day
The heart is abloom
It shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone who could lend a hand
In return for grace

And it's a beautiful day
Sky falls you feel like
A beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the run
But you got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of your imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

And it's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me babe
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by clouds
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
Hear the joy in a bird's first cries
See the Earth move right before your eyes
Watch the cars at twilight's ebb
See the dew set on a Spider's web
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light and
See the bird with the leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

And it's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't have you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need now
It's a beautiful day
Track Name: You Fell Behind
The world will stop spinning today
We will be here tomorrow again
We keep persisting despite all your pain
Your suffering will end soon, promise you

When you fell behind
Everything was different
Without you beside me
When you fell behind
I found my way in the dark
Alone

The world will seem darker today
The sun will go down and never return
God keeps persisting and comforts me
His hugs don't quite fill your empty shoes

When you fell behind
Everything was different
Without you beside me
When you fell behind
I found my way in the dark

And you said (you promised me)
But you turned your back on me (where did you go)
And every day I see your face
You're here again
Just for a moment

And you fell behind
Everything was different
Without you beside me
When you fell behind
I found my way in the dark
Alone

The world will stop spinning today
We will be here tomorrow again
We keep persisting despite all your pain
Your suffering will end soon, promise you
Track Name: Drive
I swear I never knew
What it was like to sit with you
Under stained glass
Drinking up pain
Thinking the world is crashing down
It might have been a mistake
As it turned out too much to take
I fled to the outside
Breath of fresh air and the sun beside

There you stood awaiting me
With sight that was unlike mine
I don't think I can go back
I'm lost in life but found inside

(And all I wanna do is)
Drive away
Drive away

In the blink of an eye
The world flipped upside down and I
Couldn't clear my head
Thought that love was dead
Thought I'd never find my home again
I think when life was new
We knew a bit more about you
But now I find
I don't know jack and you know my mind

Chains will find me hard to hold
'Cause my mind is undefined
I can't offer anything
I don't have anything that's mine

(So all that's left to do is)
Drive away
Drive away
(repeat)
Track Name: Mr. Moon
Mister Moon
Shining in silver blue
We are kin you and I
Lords of the night
Our legacy
Polarized
I can see all as through your eyes
While you reveal
All I conceal
My embassy

Clouds cover your eyes
And make me whole again
Lost under their shadows
There's a holy man

Mister moon
King of the midnight sky
You are banished from here
Hung in the air
The death of light
Shadowbite
Sharp as the spear that pierced your side
Fell without flight
Cast in the night
A sacrifice

Mister Moon
Though all is lost I know
You will not be denied
No one can hide
When morning comes
Psuedodawn
Not quite the morning nor the sun
One reminder
One chance to find
Reflected light

Clouds cover your eyes
And make me whole again
Lost under their shadows
There's a holy man

Mister Moon
Track Name: Reclaimer
How you doin, how's your wine
Are you havin a good trip
You got everything you wanted
What'll you do with it
Dreams of what you could have fills your mind
While swill fills up your soul
Throw your pearls before the swine
So you can eat their shit

When you raise your fist soundlessly against the blue sky
(Think I can't tame you) I will reclaim you
When you call to me and wish that time would pass you by
(When the world maims you) I will reclaim you

Here's your progress, are you proud
All you have is filth
On the cloth of your burial shroud
Here your home is built
Death and pain will follow you no doubt
And I should know
You were mine at birth
And you are mine when your life wilts

When you raise your fist soundlessly against the blue sky
(Think I can't tame you) I will reclaim you
When you call to me and wish that time would pass you by
(When the world maims you) I will reclaim you
All your dreams have failed and the dead have sucked you dry
(When death has drained you) I will reclaim you
Only I can give you what you need when you ask why
(Since I became you) I will reclaim you

You can run but you can't hide
From the truth that lives inside
When you gave yourself to me
Did you think I'd let you go
I say no
I say no
I say you are mine

When you raise your fist soundlessly against the blue sky
(Think I can't tame you) I will reclaim you
When you call to me and wish that time would pass you by
(When the world maims you) I will reclaim you
All your dreams have failed and the dead have sucked you dry
(When death has drained you) I will reclaim you
Only I can give you what you need when you ask why
(Since I became you) I will reclaim you
Track Name: I Am the Sea
Ever from the sandy shores
I watch you dance around
And yet I cannot go to you
Reaching, ever reaching
But you hide up in your buildings
Leaving me to resent you
I have millions of little friends
Who dance within me
Every day
But I know you'll come back to me
When you crave my company
Someday

Maybe I'm lonely
Maybe I'm sad
But so what
I am the sea
Maybe I need you
And maybe I don't
So who cares
I am the sea

Pilot ships upon my surface
Gaze on your reflection
Does it feel good to use me
Dream of worlds within me
Yet denounce me as a mystery
You've got to be kidding me
If you knew what I was like
Underneath my icy waves
I think you'd cry
But you'll always be your own
Leaving me to my own too
As you pass me by

Maybe I'm lonely
Maybe I'm sad
But so what
I am the sea
Maybe I need you
And maybe I don't
So who cares
I am the sea

Maybe you think
You did something great
(No no no)
You were the loved one
It's me he hates

I have something that you need
You simply can't ignore me
Because I am all around you
You can leave me in my pain
But when the clouds rain
You'll find that I am all around you

Maybe I'm lonely
Maybe I'm sad
But so what
I am the sea
Maybe I need you
And maybe I don't
So who cares
I am the sea

Maybe I'm angry
Maybe I'm broke
But so what
I am the sea
Maybe I'm dying
Maybe alive
So who cares
I am the sea

(repeat)
