Tambour Door 04:09
Tried to find myself a path / throw the fated plan Halfway out it circles back / right where I began I must not belong / to anyone or where pulling out my Hair turning over stones / looking for a fatal flaw A crack a seam to let me out of this / hamstrung but getting used to it The fiction of a better fit / finally getting over it I'm stuck in love with you Always thought a golden horn / would blow apart the clouds Let me know the one's the one / head on home the search is done Thought I'd hear the whispered fate / Your chariot awaits you dreamer Dreaming up a sugared state / but sweet little thoughts cannot sustain you I'm stuck in love with you Let it fall / together its a chance its an open door Lose control / you're not so clever after all Burn the chart of pros and cons / never got me far Halfway home I hesitate / looking for some other arms To fall to crash head and heels / breathing deep the brand new feel Every hour a slow reveal / at some point it's just selfish I'm stuck in love with you

Barely Baby 03:43
Sing a song as ships go down farewell friend I've lost you now Slowly it starts to change The tie that tied the windy heart It heaved and hoed and came apart Watch it blow away How's the healing how's the cut / barely baby How's the hold that's holding up / barely baby I know these aren't the last words Swept up all of the ashes I know why you came for me I kept good wine and company Softly grows concern A thousand future's won't become A thing your blessed or cursed with one Slowly you start to learn How's the healing how's the cut / barely baby How's the hold that's holding up / barely baby How's the knot that keeps the bind / barely baby All that's left is left behind I know these aren't the last words Swept up all of the ashes Shelter built out of nothing Hidden under the mattress

Phineas Gage 03:39
We took a walk in the spring time White Mountain valley so cool Searching til dusk, your hand found mine Sometimes it only takes a spark And I fell to you, and I fell I took a job with the railroad One last walk through Hudson Park It felt like one big closing door Sometimes it only takes a spark And I fell to you, and I fell Thirteen pounds through the skull Is what it takes to lose control I'm still tracing mystery maps Back to Hudson Park at last Laid in a bed for a short rest The brighter the flash the deeper the dark Hole in the head and in the chest Sometimes it only takes a spark And I fell to you, and I fell

Patient Arms 03:35
Guarded well a hidden song Let it grow A perfect breath in your lungs I should have known A tiny sun between your hands Let it grow Pull me into your patient arms Found my home Pieces falling into place Pull me in my certain saint Every ill spoken word I take you back Imagine folded papers burn Dust in the attic Finally learning what I need Is sleeping so close Don't forsake good company Let your love grow Pieces falling into place Pull me in my certain saint
