Track Name: Oranges
Love to make you understand the air I breathe
After prisons leave your body alone
Laze around these orange afternoons
Waiting on tangential quests

Think I’ll go down the Georgia coast
Hide away from isolation and grief
Laze around the orange avenues
No weight on our beating hearts

No one ever figures out
No one ever gets it right

Love to chase the world around with you
Is it living or running away
Laze around these orange afternoons
No weight on our beating hearts

No one ever figures out
No one ever gets it right
Track Name: Animals
Without a voice I’d say the same
They could never keep us down
Here in the garden of utopia
Fateless animals
Never on the side of love

I guess that’s all there is
I guess that’s all you get

I don’t know how we sleep through it
When everybody that you know
Is slowly sliding down the slope into
A place that I know
Never want to go alone

I guess that’s all there is
I guess that’s all you get
Track Name: Parachute
I don’t understand
And I can’t explain
Why all this love was wasted
How all the time could have faded
Still I’m hoping you
Will come back around

Together in this life but we will never know
Weathering this storm but we will never show
Track Name: Black Snow
I don’t know why the river runs dry
I don’t know why the snow turned black
But if it keeps on raining we’ll stay the night
Open the sun it could be bright
Down the road, where everything’s alive
Don’t let the darkness feel good again

Don’t you know?
It always comes back
Like the fallen leaves or the sea surrounding the ghost town
Don’t you know?

I can’t find you when you turn off the lights
I can’t find you in the dead of night
If you feel like living your life again
Open your mind it could be wide
Down the road, where everything’s alive
Don’t let the darkness feel good again

Don’t you know?
It always comes back
Like the fallen leaves or the sea surrounding the ghost town
Don’t you know?
Don’t you know?
Track Name: Lions
Gone for forty days
Lost for forty nights
Lions scratch my back
Never be afraid
But oh, we don’t care

If you wait on life it’ll only let you down
Let go of your mind
Hold on to your heart

Born to shake it up
Don’t you worry now
Wade out through the blood
And dance the night away
Oh, we don’t care

If you wait on life it’ll only let you down
Let go of your mind
Hold on to your heart
Track Name: Figs
Can I replace myself another final time
My memories deceive they are from another mind
So foolish and mistaken but oh well
Climb the waterfall to sit and watch it flow

Feel in love with everyone else
Always shapeshifting myself
Every time what part will I lose?
Always be living these blues

Can I fall off this cloud and open up the sky
Move to a place where all the colors freely fly
Dig up the worst in me and finally let it go
Jump off the waterfall so I can let it flow

Feel in love with everyone else
Always shapeshifting myself
Every time what part will I lose?
Always be living these blues
Track Name: My System
I hope I never get out of my system
Lay my own mind trap it’s a system
Make my own gods so I can subsist ‘em
Got a three paneled poster on existence

I don’t want to be anything like you
And I don’t want you to be anything like me

I hope I never get out of my system
Drink my coffee cold it’s a system
Whatever I do I feel a resistance
Lay on the line so I can see the vistas

I don’t want to be anything like you
And I don’t want you to be anything like me

Oh no
I’ve got a system
I’ve got a system

I don’t want to be anything like you
And I don’t want you to be anything like me
Track Name: Jellyfish
Out in the snow where you can’t see
Everything inside a machine

I know we’ll never get there soon
But I will always follow you
We’ll live like lovers never do
Out in a spaceship on the lawn
In you an ocean to belong

In water cold enough to see
The sun it always shines on you

I know we’ll never get there soon
But I will always follow you
We’ll live like lovers never do
Out in a spaceship on the lawn
In you an ocean to belong
Track Name: Weightless
I want to shake off these appetites
And watch the pay phones keep ringing on
While all the world is waiting on you
I will be going back for more

They’re long behind us
And soon be weightless
They’re long behind us
And too late
They’re too late

I want to break down these empty doors
And watch the black balloons keep floating on
While all the world is waiting on you
I will be going back for more

They’re long behind us
And soon be weightless
They’re long behind us
And too late
They’re too late

With stars behind us
We’ll soon be weightless
They’re long behind us
And too late
They’re too late
Track Name: Long Way Out
Is it lonely living out the life they said you never would
Well I hope you get out the hole you dug yourself
If all the neighbors close their doors on you I will be on your side
If you ever need my help I will be on your side

Long way out
I’ll take it with you
Long way down
Living so free

Is it lonely living out the life they said you never would
Well I hope you climb out the hole you dug yourself
If all the neighbors close their doors on you I will be on your side
If you ever need my help I will be on your side

Who is on your shoulder
Don’t you know that they lie
We will see the sun again
A brighter light is at the end
Who is sitting on your shoulder
Don’t you know that they lie
We will see the sun again
A brighter light is at the end

It’s a long way out
