Track Name: Tear Me To Pieces
Tear me to pieces since that’s what you do
My heart is aching with pictures of you
Philly was a haven for both of us to share
But now I am breathing my sweet Boston air
For yes I do know where we stand
You messed me up completely before we began so…
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend,
Then I’ll be the first one to make my own stand.

I have a habit of putting off the blame
And with some unrecognizable sense of shame
You see, truth be told I can’t help
But notice the window of opportunity
Darling, I’ve seen the cracks and scars of a thousand bleeding hearts
But now, I know….

Tear me to pieces since that’s what you do
My heart is aching with pictures of you
Philly stays a haven for me to stay aware
Of problems that keep us from clearing the air
For yes I do know where we stand
I’m done with this for now, I need a new plan.
So if I really was your best friend,
Then I need to re-evaluate how I make them again.

And if I seem to be awake when the sun rises,
I need to learn how to sleep with my eyes closed.
Honestly when life throws you surprises like this
You need to know where to go
And if it’s probably home…

So let’s tear this to pieces since that’s what we do
Our hearts are beating, this story’s not through
I don’t need a haven for either of us to share
I just need to breathe my own selfish air
For yes I do know where we stand
Admitting it is the hardest part
It’s time to be a man.
Though I miss being your best friend,
I won’t start this over
Or ever again.
Track Name: The Phantom
(Yeah)
I’ve been dreaming of a phantom
Above my doorstep while I’m asleep
Hey, it’s inception. I think it’s perfect.
I think this planet could be worth it
But only if we attempt to save it ourselves
Because words don’t mean a thing
It’s actions that speak louder
You know that
I would powder my nose and comb my hair for you
I’d like to dress myself up
As a token of gratitude;
A thank you for teaching me
What to and what not to do
This could be the end……

This feels like a stream of conscious wit
And I don’t really care if you don’t want to hear it
I try to keep to myself as much as possible
(Woah oh oh oh oh)

City skylines aren’t the same
One like Georgia stuck in the rain
Everywhere I go it seems to grow
I feel so nurtured even when I’m not at home.
This could be the end……

This feels like a stream of conscious wit
And I don’t really care if you don’t want to hear it
I try to keep to myself as much as possible
(Woah oh oh oh oh)

From California
Back to Georgia
I’ll wander til I’m done
This earth is a playground
And life is a battle won

This could be the end.

This feels like a stream of conscious wit
And I don’t really care if you don’t wanna hear it
I tried to keep to myself as much as possible
(Woah oh oh oh oh)

This is not a stream of conscious wit
And I don’t really care if you don’t want to hear it
I won’t keep to myself anymore. No not at all.
(Woah oh oh oh oh)
Track Name: Stone Blood
I've been making choices at sea
In spite of me
Hoping one day I'll show them
I've been watching cattle feed
As we drive by
I roll down the window and look at the countryside
Wake up from your day dream
I hear my parents scream
But I keep fixated at the wall
You know it's weird to me
How science said
We couldn't build the things we have
But we're running out of staff

And I've been trying to make stones bleed
Watching as all my friends rose up
These past four years
With tours and college degrees
I've been so hard on myself lately
Try to keep me up to speed
Forever trying to feel free

What's impossible to you
Could be so easy for another
Forever wondering the consequences
Of another way you went back
Tell me Marietta is just how I remember it
Let's re-examine this conversation for a bit.

And I've been trying to make stones bleed
Watching as all my friends rose up
These past four years
With tours and college degrees
I've been so hard on myself lately
Try to keep me up to speed
Forever trying to feel free

And don't you dare
Try to tell me that this is where I need to go
And don't you dare
Try to tell me that you told me so...

I've been trying to make stones bleed
Watching as all my friends rose up
These past four years
With tours and college degrees (Oh)
I've been so hard on myself lately
Try to keep me up to speed
Forever trying to feel free
Forever trying to feel free
Oh God, I'm trying to feel free
Forever trying to feel free
Forever trying to feel.....something
Track Name: She Dances (Pas De Deux)
So I'll return one day
When all my thoughts are clear
Another shade of gray
Might turn into an atmosphere
When I am listening
She holds this tender chord
But I'm ambivalent
And I will watch her as

She dances
On rooftops and tables in silhouettes
Gliding around with her pirouettes
Hoping for some kind of happiness
She dances
And as I recall she seemed to forget
How according to her this was all that she had left.

Years later things have changed
I still remain insane
She is a woman now
While holding shattered parts of me
The theater is dark and so is the stage
I must have been affected by this blinding fucking rage

I burned myself for the last fucking time
Just cause matches are free,
Doesn't mean that I'll keep a supply
She might have listened once
But I also might have tried to bring her the sky as

She dances
On rooftops and tables in silhouettes
Gliding around with her pirouettes
Hoping for some kind of happiness
She dances
And as she recalls she seemed to forget
How according to her this was all that she had left.

We're dancing the step of two
I gave it all up for you my dear

She dances
On rooftops and tables in silhouettes
Spinning me round with her pirouettes
Hoping for some kind of happiness
She dances
And as I recall it's me who's seemed to forget
How according to her this was all that we had.
Track Name: Marriage
You came along and you brought me forward
I know it seems like only days ago
And yeah my drunken rant was geared toward
You and how I wanted us to grow
Take him back, just relax, I am heading home.
If I quit cigarettes, would you answer your phone?
You say you’re scared, so am I, but it’s different.
I will leave and you know that I won’t regret
Everything that I have ever done
It’s not easy.

This could be the greatest story
That was never told
I think I wanna be with you
Until we grow old
But I can’t be the one to kiss you
With his hands stuck in your hair
I can’t be the one to hold you
When my face could never compare
You said that you’re so pretty and you’re so tough
Well how on earth could I make this up?
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough
How the hell could I make this up tonight?

Tonight I’ll dream that we met
In a different time
And everything just felt so fine (A lie!)
I lie awake and touch my heart
I’m so turned off by bitter sparks
The accents depress, and I digress
For this is the hardest part.

This could be the greatest story
That was never told
I think I wanna be with you
Until we grow old
But I can’t be the one to kiss you
With his hands stuck in your hair
I can’t be the one to hold you
When my face could never compare
You said that you’re so pretty and you’re so tough
Well how on earth could I make this up?
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough
How the hell could I make this up tonight?

I think I’ll marry you one day.
I think I’ll marry you one day.
Or at least
I thought I’d marry you one day
I thought I’d marry you one day
Maybe I’ll marry you one day
I’ll never marry you (oh)

This could be the greatest story
That was never told
I just wanted to be with you
Well, until we grow old
But I can’t be the one to miss you
With all your shit stuck in his hands
I can’t be the one to hold you instead…
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough
Well how on earth could I make this up?
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough
How the hell could I make this up?
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough
How on earth could I make this up?
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough.
You’re so pretty and you’re so tough.
Track Name: Golden
Someone told her
Her eyes could get her what she wants.
I agree completely, could never put up a front.
Well there are times at night where I still miss her touch.
She’s been on my mind, been thinkin’ bout her too much.
And who knows what brought this sort of thing about.
It could be happenstance, or my lingering rain cloud
That only comes every time I get around
To telling her “He’s no good. Let me help you figure it out.”

And you’re golden
Just like your face from the sun
Though I feel broken
I just wanna be the one
To stand in line
We could maybe Skype through summer nights
I’ll save my pennies up
I’ll bring love to another time.

Oh it turns me pale when I think about
The things you eat
Making me want to change my life
But then I retreat
Into bad habits and it’s because of my A.D.D.
I’ve never eaten kale
But I’ll try some if it’s free

And you’re golden
Just like your face from the sun
Though I feel broken
I just wanna be the one
To stand in line
We could maybe Skype through summer nights
I’ll save my pennies up
I’ll bring love to another time.

Keep on breathing
All the water
That is trapped in my lungs.
Keep on searching
For a comfort
In the arms of another one.

(Take it all. In the arms of another one.)

And you’re golden
Just like your face from the sun
Though I feel broken and
I just wanna be the one
To stand in line
We could maybe Skype through summer nights
I’ll save my pennies up
I’ll bring love to another time.
I’ll save my pennies up
I’ll bring love to another time.
Save my pennies up,
I’ll bring love to you.
Track Name: Wanderer (feat. Tyler Hicks of The May King)
Am I a murderer if I'm killing time?
Am I a poet if I supply a rhyme?
Am I a martyr if I die for life?
All that I know is I'm glad I'm here tonight.

Am I a wanderer if my feet lead me astray?
Am I a dreamer if I stare at you all day?
Am I a lover if I hold you until we're gray?
All that I know is we'll never fade away.

I am finally a simple matter of a man.
Nobody's pet, nobody's kill, nobody's prey.
All that I ask is that you try to understand
That I have grown to this, and I have you to thank.

Am I a servant if I wait on you?
Am I a preacher if I preach what I think is true?
Am I a king if I rule a household too?
And if I asked for your hand, what exactly would you do?

I am finally a simple matter of a man.
Nobody's pet, nobody's kill, nobody's prey.
All that I ask is that you try to understand
That I have grown to this, and I have you to thank.

I AM FLAWED
I AM BATTERED
I AM TORN
BUT THIS MATTERS

But would you stay?
Would you stay?
Would you stay?

I am finally a simple matter of a man.
Nobody's pet, nobody's kill, nobody's prey.
All that I ask is that you try to understand
That I have grown to this
Oh I have grown to this
I have grown to this,
And I have you to thank.

I will stay.

I will stay.

I will stay.

I will stay.
