Track Name: On the tip of my tongue
When I saw it
It made an imprint
I didn't forget it
I even let it
Creep a bit closer
Then it panicked
Elusive
And erratic

I'm trying to catch you
Trying to see you
Trying to catch you
Trying to feel you

I'm chasing an idea
And a feeling
Complicated
And revealing

I can feel it slipping though my fingers
We make our mud castles and never notice
That there might be more
Track Name: Melt me
I've been frozen to the spot
I've been frozen for so long
I've been waiting for the right time
I've been waiting for the sun to shine

I've been frozen for so long
I've been frozen for so long
Someone melt me or I'll stay here forever

There's a sign in front of me
It reads: this is the statue of the undecided free
But I've been waiting for the right time
I've been waiting for the sun to shine

In the wind and the snow I might disappear
In the rain and the cold I might give way to fear
In the middle of everything you are here
Always my way into the clear

I'm still frozen to the spot
Cold and dead though I am not
Don't mind waiting for the right time
Don't mind waiting for the sun to shine
Track Name: What happens when we close our eyes
We are like grass
Blown over in the wind
Like flowers of the field
We snap and then we spin

Rising is a farce
It's not going to happen
And living is a farce
It's not going to happen

We are like grass
Blown over by the wind
Like flowers of the field
We snap and then we spin

A seed was planted once
Deep underground
With pressure and time the seed
Was only stronger found
The seed died one day
But from it grew a tree
From which seeds like the first fell
Slowly and gracefully

We were like grass
Blown over by the wind
Like flowers of the field
Which snap at first then spin

Rising from the dead
I think it's going to happen

Can't quite believe
But I think it's going to happen
Track Name: Wasting time
The weight of sliding rocks
Tearing softly from the turf
Easy as falling
But catching rough

Wasting time
I don't mind

The clock ticks on again
But the gears are wearing down
Little by little
Rusting out

Wasting time
Feel the grind
Track Name: Just beyond the swamp
Out of the loop of drilled routine
I've finally learned to enjoy
Track Name: Stowaways
We're not stowing away together
We're not forming a secret band
We're not watching the ten foot waves
Tower over us solid as land

Do you see something in me
Worth facing the world for something in me
Worth facing it all for something in me
Or will you stand here alone?

We're not going away together
We're not sailing the seven seas
We're not fighting the last sea monster
Or some lost disease

So I'm asking for your untying
Of that rope from the pier
No more hiding and no more sighing
No more biding your time
Track Name: Closer
I want to get closer
But I know
You're too far away

You say that it's ok
But I know
There's either deep hate or deep apathy

I want to look you in the eye
But I can't
I'd just burn up instantly

And this is why
I'm going away

I want to get closer
But I know
You're too far away
