Track Name: Forgiven
Rest assured
I'm doing fine
But shit came in
And filled my time

I guess there's something wrong with me
I'm cracked in places you can't see
Everybody wants to be forgiven

One day soon
I'll fly away
Until my wings
Have healed I'll pray

To get myself out of this hole
And clean the spraypaint from my soul
Everybody wants to be forgiven

Maybe now
I'm finally free
Staring back
Across the sea

And though the past is close behind
It's just the shadows of my mind
Everybody wants to be forgiven
Track Name: Bird in the Hand
Two touchy hours but you feel fine
Washing the memories down with wine
A bird in the hand and ice cream on your tongue

Step to the drums, it's not quite dawn
I'm on the stairs and not that strong
Nothing you could say could turn the stars back on

And I feel
Every time I breathe
Someone's after me
It's more than I can take

Time after time the fates conspired
I guess this means war but I'm too tired
As I write these lines the world is moving on

It's just another way of marking time
It seems once again you've crossed that line
So turn up the heat before the light is gone

And I feel
If I could just believe
There'd be no need to leave
It's more than I can take
Track Name: Reload
The war has come home
But you can't be troubled with that
The world may be round
From here, though, it stretches out flat

It's hardly the best day that I'll ever know
But at least now no one here is speaking in code
So at least let me talk to you while you reload

It's never our time
At least that's the pattern I've seen
Now sleep 'til the day
When you'll learn what words really mean

'Cause out on the front lines is where I was shown
That peace is the best thing that I'll ever own
So at least let me talk to you while you reload

Reasonable heads in unreasonable times
The beauty of reason cut down in its prime
We all have a war and I've finally found mine
Please don't abandon me while it explodes
I just need an end to this whole episode
So please come and talk to me while I reload
Track Name: Wasting
It's all right, it's okay
I had no other plans today
And if my heart was open wide
It's easy enough to hide
Away again

You've been wasting my time
It's okay, it's no crime
And in the end I get enough
But you've been wasting my love

The less you give, the less you take
Love bends and then love breaks
Believing words, not quite lies
You fade in your disguise

You've been wasting my time
It's okay, it's no crime
And in the end I get enough
But you've been wasting my love
Track Name: Nothing's Ever Calm
One thing we can all agree upon is that the situation's grim
And you would give it all to taste the salty water flowing off her skin
You sit around inside all day and read the phone book like it was a psalm
The weather's been okay but in the end the truth is nothing's ever calm

Everyone, listen in
We're stuck inside this mission
And I find myself
Drifting in and out of focus
There's too much sun and too much rain
You're smiling like a hurricane
I find myself
Drifting in and out of focus

It's out of hand, that much is clear
To anyone who gives it any thought
I've seen the dark behind the smile
I've seen the truth left on the vine to rot
I sat beside the river
With the future roaring towards me like a train
We're either onto something
Or we're soon to wind up circling the drain


Everyone, listen in
We're stuck inside this mission
And I find myself
Drifting in and out of focus
There's too much sun and too much rain
You're smiling like a hurricane
I find myself
Drifting in and out of focus
