Track Name: Roses
Roses on the floor
fell right on my glasses
Now you're drinking tea
in front of me
like it's molasses

You always want more
but you don't know what that is
You're drinking tea
in front of me
like it's molasses

I'm not fighting anymore
for a feeling I can't afford

Roses on the floor
fell right on my glasses
Now you're drinking tea
in front of me
like it's molasses

You always want more
but you don't know what that is
You're drinking tea
in front of me
like it's molasses

I'm not fighting anymore
for a feeling I can't afford

It's just a thought that got
caught in the neighbors plants
It's just a thought that got
caught in the neighbors plants

I'm not fighting anymore
for a feeling I can't afford
Track Name: Time and Again
Petty locking out
and I lost all hope
The day we hit the rocks
I near shut off and stopped

A blue lullaby
sunk me to sleep that night
and I started spiraling 'round
a pillar pointed down

Time and again, I think how
I do without the friends I've buried now
and in time I see
just how it would and wouldn't be

I've been locked on looking out
but don't want to do what they're doing
I know what's good to feel
and there's no power in what's real

So I let 'em go
and sometimes I'm alone
But the moment loving stops
it returns slow and soft

Time and again, I think how
I do without the friends I've buried now
and in time I see
just how it would and wouldn't be

I'm looking at who
I'm giving attention to
I'm looking at who, who, who
I'm looking at who
I'm giving attention to
I'm looking at who, who, who
who, who, who
who, who, who
Track Name: Dreams
How do I know if this whole view is true?
What if I can't feel it but only see it?
If I can't sense it now, will I ever?
Can I get this weight to lift and feel better?

When I look across
it seems so far and I am lost
Same rotation albatross
all again, again-gain oh

When a war is through
there is much undoing to do
but I'll go to the streets and see
if when I wake up your'e still here with me

Is all worry forward caused by backward?
Oh, how low can we go in limbo?
How many truths are in patterns I can't find?
Should I change this dream or my mind?

When I look across
it seems so far and I am lost
Same rotation albatross
all again, again-gain oh

When a war is through
there is much undoing to do
but I'll go to the streets and see
if when I wake up you're still here with me

Without you I don't think
I would get out of here, anyway
Track Name: Deepest Dive
It hit like a kiss
I was distant
and staring at drips
from an ocean still spilling

I didn't know
this would come to surface
I didn't know
I'd feel calm while feeling nervous

Go in there to get me
Go in there to get me
We were already halfway there
We were already halfway there

Waking up to a dive
with ideas of what that'd be
when above meets below
and reveals what was unseen

Under the water
soaking its lush surround
What did I see,
but two doves flying around

Go in there to get me
Go in there to get me
We were already halfway there
We were already halfway there

We were already halfway there
We were already halfway there
Track Name: Ophelia
I found you behind the house
all tucked away and wound around
spears of plum forgotten wild days

I was waiting, felt like years
thought maybe you had disappeared
half the fruit was sleeping in the tree

But now I want
the palpitations in front
Now I want
the palpitations in front

Now that it's over
I know that you're mine
Thinking it over every time
But I want more than your mind
I want more than your mind

Saw you laying from above
your garden almost looked like love
curled around your fingers quietly

Laughing, coughing up blood
made both the sky and moon flood
raining down upon you in one sweep

But now I want
the palpitations in front
Now I want
the palpitations in front

Now that it's over
I know that you're mine
Thinking it over every time
But I want more than your mind
I want more than your mind

Now I wanna know why the sky is open
Now I wanna know
Now I wanna know why it was ever frozen
Now I wanna know

Now I know why you forgot
Now I know why you forgot

So don't forget, don't
Don't forget
now
