Track Name: Anchors
Anchors

The disappointments we keep as souvenirs
And the insults stuck within our ears
And the sleepless nights filled with fear
Oh, restless wolves eating the deer
And the regrets at the end of every year
And the wounds we anxiously engineer
And the boats that never leave the pier
And the days thrown away for a career

But the children, the children I’d never get to know
And my creations, they would never get to grow
And my woman, my woman would never let it go
But the villains, but the villains are waiting for me down below

Before you try to save the world maybe you could
Maybe you could try to save yourself
Before you try to save the world maybe you could
Maybe you could try to save yourself
(And shine your light on what you like instead of what you despise
For a change, for a change)

And the children, the children I’d never get to know
And my creations, they would never get to grow
And my woman, my woman would never let it go
But the villains, but the villains are waiting for me down below
Track Name: Wings
Wings

When I let you in my world
I knew you would be the one to save it
When a beggar finds a pearl
He knows he should, but he won’t return it

I was afraid that you would scoff
That I even dared to want to have what was given
When I heard your lock go off
I felt like I’d been granted access to heaven

Don’t worry about it all, I said
We will never fall
Don’t worry about it all, our love
Will never let us fall

Took your hand, led you as close
As one can be to the bottomless pit
We looked down and felt the throes
The enemy whispering us to jump in it

“Don’t worry about it all”, you said
“You promised we would never fall and I believe you”
We stopped looking at the endless void
And all the pain we can avoid
And we remembered the Sun
Shining on our faces
And our tale had just begun
Track Name: Cannonballs
Cannonballs

There’s the one you are and the one you’d like to be
There’s the one you love and the one who loves you back
But they never, they never met

There are things you don’t control, things that leave a hole
There are things you must accept, feels like getting wrecked
Feels like being swept under the floor

Because you saw her cannonballs
Fly right through your walls
Love will make you crawl
But if you never learn from it
Never quite admit
You keep getting hit

There’s the blame you put on her, ain’t it easier
It’s never black or white, there’s no dark and light
You are not a knight fighting a war

Because you felt your legs go
When you took the blow
Love will make you grow
But if you never learn from it
Never quite admit
You keep getting hit

There’s the blame you put on her, ain’t it easier
It’s never black or white, there’s no dark and light
You are not a knight fighting a war

Because you saw her cannonballs fly right through your walls
Love will make you fall, love will make you crawl
But if you never learn from it, never quite admit
Keeps on throwing hits, keeps on throwing hits
Track Name: Kids
Will Driving West - Kids

Believe me I swear, I’m a better man than I was then
How I wish you’d known the one who’s grown
I guess I’ll never make it up to you

I met a girl, I think I’m gonna marry her
In another life, you two could have been
Great friends

It wasn’t always easy but I choose now
To remember only the good times, oh the good times
Our love was never sleazy, yet we somehow
Got lost between the lines, between the lines

I miss your kids, even though I know they’re better off
Their daddy came home, their dreams came true
You know, how lucky are those two?

I guess it wouldn’t be appropriate to go out and have a cup of tea
Just to talk, I like to talk to you
Yeah, that’s something I miss too

It isn’t always easy but I choose now
To remember only the good times, oh the good times
Our love was never sleazy, yet we somehow
Got lost between the lines, between the lines
Track Name: Man An Ocean
Man An Ocean
Some things you never want to think about
Took me a while to figure this one out
That these waves inside me might never die
That these sharky waters might never dry

So many ships at the bottom
I guess the wars must have got ‘em
There are traces of battles sunken in the sea
There are places in an ocean you wouldn’t want to see

Floating in silences
I shut down my defences
Slowly drifting on you

I’m drawn to your horizon
With the Sun in my eyes and
Slowly drifting on you
Track Name: The Watcher
The Watcher
Who’s the loud one
Trying to be the center of the room all the time
High on wine
Shouting his stories
Never ever worries that anyone else
Might have something to say

Silently watching
In the shadows with a tape on my lips
Wondering if someday I
Will be bold enough to
Tell him get the hell off my head because I don’t
Need you anymore

Who’s the soft one
The man I see when I meditate
When I take a break from
Trying to be acknowledged
The difference between knowledge and wisdom
The wise one knows he doesn’t know

Where’s the real one
His mind is at peace because it’s just a ride
So he waits inside my heart
Feeling that someday I might just start
Looking for him
When the loud one’s gone
Track Name: Waltz of Life
Waltz of Life
You say you didn’t like the moments when you were scared to death
But your favorite memories are made of them
Now which ones do you erase and which ones do you keep?

You say you didn’t like the moments when you felt troubled
But they made you write your best songs
Now which ones do you erase and which ones do you keep?

You say you didn’t like the moments when you lost yourself
But it’s how you found the roads that led you here
Now which ones do you take and which ones do you leave?

You say you didn’t ask for the moments when you were broke
How else would you learn what freedom is worth?
It taught you to receive and now it’s teaching you to give

You say you didn’t like to be humiliated
No joke is ever worth the harm it does
Well now you know...
Now, you know

See how the gears all fit together?
Then why are my feet still so cold?
They say those fears don’t live forever
Then why does my heart feel so old?
Track Name: Trains
Trains
I’d love to stay with you but I just can’t
I have so many friends waiting for me at home
Like you wouldn’t believe
Like you wouldn’t believe

Well, there’s my cat, I’m sure he’s missing me right now
And I got plenty of things to do
Like thinking of you
Like thinking of you

I’ve heard that hell is meeting who you could have been
When you die
Oh when the bells ring I fear I’ll see you with him
Flying high

How I wish that I could stay tonight
And how I wish that I could fight
The urge to run away
The urge to run away

Lock the doors and beg me not to go
Take my car keys, I drank too much, I don’t know
Find something to keep me from leaving
To keep me from leaving

I’ve heard that hell is meeting who you could have been
When you die
Oh when the bells ring I fear I’ll see you with him
Flying high

I’ve heard that hell is meeting who you could have been
When you die
Oh when my bells ring I fear I’ll see you with him
Flying high
Track Name: And The Sky Turned Blue
And The Sky Turned Blue
I’m gonna hit the wall
I’m gonna hit the wall
Someday

The ceiling is gonna fall
The ceiling is gonna fall
Someday

If I don’t move now
If I don’t make a change
If I don’t choose now
To rearrange

I’m gonna drop the ball
I’m gonna drop the ball
Someday

Get swallowed by the sprawl
Get swallowed by the sprawl
Someday

If I don’t move now
If I don’t make a change
If I don’t choose now
To rearrange

If I don’t move now
If I don’t make a change
If I don’t choose now
To rearrange
