Track Name: Endings
Books on their shelves in small rooms
Dining sets on tables waiting for you
On the outside we're all looking in
Waiting for all our endings to begin

Woolen heavy blankets of our days
Hanging on the bedpost, but here we lay
Like mountains we will vanish to the winds
Waiting for all our endings to begin

Westerners will vanish into code
Sending in their wrestled, vanquished souls
Buildings on the outside falling in
Waiting for all their endings to begin

Wrinkled letters thrown across the floor
Will you notice when i walk through the door?

Wearing winter jackets on our hopes
Wishing we had chains, but only ropes
Fraying from the daggers of our sins
Waiting for all our endings to begin
Track Name: Comfortable
We wait around
We talk about
Things no one cares about
Places been
Things we said
Ain't got nothing but ourselves

Go your miles
Endless aisles
Built with nothing but your mind
Figure out
Pull it down
Shade on those shallow eyes

Take one more look, settle down
Peace and quiet now
Tell me how you can be so at ease with everything

Sleep it off
Dreams are lost
From the records of the times
Say again
What you meant
Getting lost behind the blinds

Take one more look, settle down
Peace and quiet now
Tell me how you can be so at ease with everything
Track Name: Crossing Over
We grew up in the plains
As children playing our games
But as we grew, we grew away
And roots dig deep a different way

The morning follows nigh
All those times I sat on by
And watched across the room
I only ever saw you
When will you see you're the only one I see?

I dream of future plans
Our houses and our homes
Going everywhere we please
Crossing over, climbing trees
We're free, we're home, we're gone
And we've only just begun
Track Name: Man Made
The people sigh and mumble
They aren't wanting no more trouble
From those who say they've worked for what they've got
With a little more resistance
And an inkling of persistence
They could show there's no reaping what they've wrought

But who's to say
Who's to say what makes a man?
So let's start and finish what we began

From the halls on Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We will fight our countries battles keeping people from being free
Here they come
Fighting wars on dignity
Looking over many shoulder
Peaking down your sweater's neck
Better pray for all your brothers in heaven and in heck
Lest you find you've met their same damned fate

But who's to say
Who's to say what makes a man?
So let's start and finish what we began
Track Name: Slow
With all the things this place has seen
Even the ones you forget
I built a home where wild grows
And trees surround its face

With letters wrote for a time
But nothing ever said
In silence born a creek so wide
A river in our minds

And as we go we'll say hello
To the birds we've never seen
And soon we'll be alone but free
A lost, forgotten tree

Even though the sun goes down
You'll still lie sleeping below
But as you rise, so too it rises
On that bank so slow

And as we go we'll say hello
To the birds we've never seen
And soon we'll be alone but free
A lost, forgotten tree
