Track Name: Vernacular
I don't know where I've been
All I know is I've been having fun with my friends
And losing them
I don't know what to say
I'm sick of half-truth fabrications scrawled across your face
In permanent black ink

After all our days began to blur
Past tense crept into our vernacular

I don't know what I am
I've asked myself that since I was ten years old
Playing games on a screen
My mind, the screen, both wide and fuzzy

Before all our days began to sing
Songs composed of treacherous melodies
And after all our days began to blur
Past tense crept into our vernacular
Track Name: Go
Go, put yourself on hold, she told me, she told me, at least I thought so
I thought she told me go
And don't ever let this go, she told me, she told me, at least I thought so
I thought she told me go

Go

Don't lead me down that road, she told me, she told me, at least I thought so
I should pay more attention though
And don't I, don't I know
That we're all to scared to go
Just to go back, just to go back home
Track Name: Roped In
Turn me around, I feel it's taking too much time
It's too much time
We'll work it out, I feel we'll work it out in time
We'll work it out
You

You are the one, you roped me in
I thought it so nice how you took me under your wing
But I was just one that you roped in
I don't even care no more but it's fun to reminisce

Pragmatism is expected, to some degree
Is that too much? It's not too much
I don't think that's asking to much but you must
You must think that's asking too much but you


You are the one, you roped me in
I thought it so nice how you took me under your wing
But I was just one that you roped in
Your lyrical wit is not limited to your songwriting
You use it all the time in your everyday speech
You use it all the time when you're lying to me and my friends

You are the one, you roped me in
Spoon fed lies as far as phony dietary restrictions

You are the one, you roped us in
We don't even care no more but it's fun to reminisce
Track Name: Let's Split
I don't know what I'm thinking
Waking up at eight am
Early mornings aren't my thing
Pour some coffee, im groggy
Rub the sleep out of my eyes
Glazed like beams of the sun rise
Still adjusting to home life
Make some noise, I'll be just fine

you slip, you fall, you break your jaw
we offer you a chance to call it off
and stop the crooked shit
but you can't even own up to it

let's split, I quit
I've had enough of this bullshit
let's split, I quit
I've had enough of it

that's a little more like it
sleep or not I don't mind it
get my songs in a neat pile
hate them all after a while

some days I wonder if you've any soul at all
clearly you've no handle on concepts of right/wrong
some days
some days I hate
some days I'm the same

all I know is gone
it had to be done
Track Name: Searching (For The Same Thing)
There I lie, stare at the sky, biding my time all night
Slip and fall into my own mind, deep in I find the time
To realize it's fine, that everything's fine with time
At least that's what I'm told, I hope not to choke on that last line.

Still it's fine (fine, fine)
In my mind (my mind)
We'll be fine if we find our minds

As the days pass, I talk less, I'm learning to grasp
Simple small facts of existence: love and patience, truth and persistence
As the day pass, I talk less, day after day we sing
Tales of mystery, but we're all searching for the same thing

Aren't we searching for the same thing?

Crazy how a daydream found a way to be so profound
Crazy how I'm so up and down, I feel too far gone from this town
I realize it's fine, that everything's fine with time
There I go again being presumptuous
Track Name: A Moment Or Two
I awoke from a dream
In it a mom I once knew called her son a junkie
Then through the window I see the son walking down the street
I feel defeat for his feet
I actually don't know him anymore, I was asleep
And in my sleep I have been seeing things I am afraid of to say the least

I need to get away for a moment or two
I have become too accustomed to the changing of views
And when I fall asleep my head is swirling
It is far, far, far out of reach
Track Name: What Makes You Grin?
Aren't we all just the same?
Hanging in the same place?
Time tears down our days
Aren't we all just the same?

Have you ever given up on something that you love?
Or never had enough reason to move on?

Could it hurt anyone at all, to think before we talk and say things we don't mean to?
Where's the love in acting like you do?

Days pass with little sense of luxuries we've had
Moods rise and fall with the tides of time

Close your eyelids, turn off your mind, sit, relax, breathe in….
What makes you grin?

Oh, what makes you grin?
Lift that chin kid
Oh, just now I feel more complete than I have in years

Could it hurt anyone at all, to think before we talk and say things we don't mean to?
Where's the love in acting like you do?
Oh, it'd be so nice for all involved:
To think before we talk and say things we don't mean to?
Where's the love in acting like you do?
Track Name: Think Twice
Think twice: it seemed like good advice to heed
But we pay it no attention
No we don't

Seems to me, you think that all I ever do is dream
You're right in part
My heart, it craves simpler things

You you're wasting my time tonight

Oh, I don't even mind it
But I think you should know right know
I guess that I should go right now
Oh, I don't even mind you
But I think you should know right now
You're traveling the same old roads
Here we go

You will never know
It's sad but true

You, you're wasting your time tonight
Track Name: A Song For Fun Times
Me?
Well I've been sleeping, as usual
You're all that's visible - in my dreams - it's you and me
And we both seem so happy

But at this time I'm out of mind
Sometimes I don't think before I speak

Me?
Well I just won't speak, I'll only breathe
Maybe then I'll see
I'll just live, feel the world beneath my feet
"You gotta dig": singing those lines made me…

Think so much about my giving up
Sometimes I don't think before I speak

Last night, yeah you said you'd be just fine
Or did you lie?
Now I'm thinking that I should change my mind
Well I'm alright

I don't know why
I did what I did last night, I lost my mind
Track Name: I Don't Mind, Take Your Time
Don't leave my sight
Please stay the night
Won't, oh, won't you please try?
I need you tonight

I don't, I don't mind
Take your, take your time

Where do you sleep?
And would you please invite me? Invite me.
How much longer is the wait?
Please, you can keep me
Keep me
Track Name: Night Owl (A Dream)
All my days aren't gone
And I'm not scared of change
Because all I need is by side at night
I can rest easy, it's time to alight

Oh, yeah it's alright

I don't need to be reminded that I could have saved my soul long ago
And I don't ever want to know the truths or outcomes of my own jejune issues

Oh, well it's just fine

All that time I lied to myself
And all that time I thought it would help
Are you backwards, night owl?
Are you living in reverse?
Your disconnect is unfortunate

I'm halfway between the void of sleep and dreams
I recall the coast
I loved you so
I'd never want to go

Oh yeah it's….


Fall asleep friend
Rest your tired, shaky head
Tomorrow all, all is new
The sun is good for you


____________

(Juvenescence)

One, two, who are you?

What the hell is going on?
Snow is on the ground, it's barely fall
Where on earth have our minds strolled?
It's true, I just want you
Do-Do-Do-Do

Why am I afraid of holidays and looming social events?
I'm scared to know the truth
It's true, I just want you
Do-Do-Do-Do

And you, all I want is another dose of you
Do-Do
And you, all I ever want is another dose of you

What the hell is going on?
I'll take anything but 21
Has juvenescence passed me by?
I don't care as long as I've still got you
Do-Do-Do-Do

And you, don't care as long as I've still got you
Do-Do
And you, all I want is another dose of you
