Track Name: Not Cool
Defy logic and all sensibility.
Tell me the world isn't warming and girls are treated equally.
I'll tell you you're wrong.
You're so wrong.
But you don't care.
And reason, won't get us anywhere.

When the swamp king reigns.
And you won't look him in the face.
I will. I will. We will.
Every single day.

Alternative facts, where are my liars at?
Let's call it as it is, you're accomplices.

Think about it.
Does it make you feel good?
Think about it.
You know you shouldn't.
Yet here you are.
And here I am.
At a proverbial line in the sand.
Track Name: Quilt
I miss the quiet of my home.
Could leave but you know I can't let go.
Putting the pieces together is easy with pre-cut squares.
But when you cut your own you know you've left your own mark there.

Wrap me in your warmth.
Wrap me in all the things I know and love.
Hold me here.
And if I leave.
I leave a piece of me here with you.


Piece by piece and square by square.
Pricks and pokes we've had our share.
Things with value don't come easily.
Especially when it's bigger than you and me.

This quilt.
Was built.
One square at a time.
This quilt.
Was built.
One square at a time.
Track Name: Jay Everyday
It's not a matter of trying hard.
If we knew what to do we'd do it.
The adult world is convoluted.
It's passion vs. practical solutions.
So even though I'll miss you a lot
And I'm not sure what to say.
I hope you'll find something I haven't.
I guess I'm ok either way.

I'm so proud of you.
And you don't have to do anything different than what you're doin.
I'm so proud of you
And you don't have to do anything different than what you're doin.

Honoring our passion is hard.
If that means moving by all means you should do it.
We'll never know until we try
Go ahead let them call you foolish.

I think you're brave.
It won't be the same.
But I welcome the change.
I think you're brave.
Things will fall into place.
No risk no gain.
Track Name: Holy
A mountain stand statuesque.
Against a burnt desert backdrop.
Light that cigarette.
Drive away.
Don't look back.

She'll find you when you least expect it.
A foul bath of the mistakes you've made.
You think you've got it all figured out.
Holier than thou.

Experience reveals complexity.
Layers under the crust.
And the version of you who couldn't see.
Someone you've learned not to trust.
Track Name: Twenty-Three
My friend David swore.
23's a drag but wait til' 24.
Although as we grow,
Some things change.
It's not a detriment but a brand new day.

Today seems brighter than the day before,
But the sun's in the same spot in the morning.
Platitudes bounce around in my chest,
maybe there's truth in it?
Time is helping.

Time.
Time is helping.
Time.
Time is helping.

Now what's left?
There's no question.
It's you relying on you.
It's you relying on you.
Track Name: The Tide
I've been looking around.
All over town.
Realizing you don't want to be found.
You'll go your way I'll go mine.
Hey man.
It's fine.

These days are getting longer.
Nights feel shorter and you always used to wander but you don't have time anymore.

The tide moves slow and on its own.
The ebb and flow.
Eventually we all do.
And I should know how it goes.
But I still call this home.

You say there's nothing we can do.
But we've got different points of view.
Cause I'm swimming I'm drowning.
I'm trying to run on just two hours of sleep and so much fun
But not you.
There's nothing to do.
Track Name: Princes Street
The things we think we know.
About bad day's and hardships and not wanting to go home.
Walking down Prince's St.
Didn't mean much to me.
Out of having the time of my life while you've been fighting for yours.

And I'll be honest.
I don't understand.
Where the rhetoric begins and whose land is whose land.

You shouldn't have to worry.
You shouldn't have to think.
Will today be the day.
You shouldn't have to worry.
You should have to fight.
How privileged am I.

Birthright and dumb luck.
Have me complaining
When I get too much ketchup in my bag.
And it wasn't served fast enough to comply with my schedule
And my day.
Walking down Prince's St.
Didn't mean much to me.
Track Name: Pressure
When you've got so much to do you can't see straight.
And the pressure is persistently pounding at our backs.
Lean on me. I've got you. Believe in me we can win this.
I'm not sure of much. But I know that we can't quit.

It matters.
We matter.
I know it's easy to forget.
It's hard.
It's so hard.
But we're not dead until we're dead.
It matters.
We matter.
I know it's easy to forget.

When the numbers are run and their stacked against us.
It isn't as if we haven't been there before.
Bruised and bent. We made it.
Resolute and stubborn, the scars are many but we've always made it through.
Spinning. In our tracks.
Trying to relax.
I know it's easy to forget.
It's hard. It's so hard.
But we're not dead until we're dead.
It matters.
We matter.
I know it's easy to forget.

Spinning in our tracks.
Track Name: Rosehill
Surreal, unexpected, heart-sick cold and hurt.
I'll just stay here.
Autopilot, video games.
Reality? No thanks.
I'll just stay here.

Your smile, your laugh, but I've got that.
I'll just stay here.
Get busy, stand tall.
Find a new road, question it all.
No. I'll just stay here.

I don't like to get ahead of myself.
But if you need me, I'll be sleeping in until I leave town.

Not that it helps I'm just wondering why?
Why him? Why now? Why this? Why me.
I don't mean to get existential but I know I'm not the only one reeling.

I know I had more than I could have ever hoped for
But that doesn't help deal with this loss or my grief.
Soon I'll consider dealing with this pain, I won't be bitter.
But for now, I'll just be.
Track Name: Tightrope
You are everything you ought to be.
You aren't anything you wanted
And you haven't seen the things you'd hoped you'd see.

Walk that tightrope.
There isn't room for gutsy moves.
Smile and pretend that you'll be fine.
But stray off course and your doomed.

Keep your head held high.
While you try to walk that line.
Cartwheeling and tight roping too,
That's you.

The daily grind's got us, just trying to find the time to do the things that make it all worth living.
The daily grind's got us, just trying to find the time to do the things that make it all worth living.

What makes you you?
It's not your job but that isn't news.
Push another paper and die inside.
But you do what you've got to do.
Track Name: Control
Make the most of it.
Seasons change and east winds blow.
Be present stay focused on what you've got.
Take control.
Sometimes that means letting go of that extra baggage and all of those wondering thoughts.
I get lost from time to time.
You should get your shit together.
