Anchors 04:31
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

Wings 04:40
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

Cannonballs 04:00
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

Kids 03:56
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

Man An Ocean 03:14
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

The Watcher 03:44
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

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?

Trains 03:48
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

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
