Decoder Ring 02:42
Off the handle, back on the shore Sleeping in forevermore You cannot push that point away You cannot think of what to say Look at me Oh, oh I can’t be seen, Without a decoder ring Down in the dungeon, out in the sea You can’t pin that shit on me I got a solid alibi It doesn’t matter if you try To look at me Oh, oh I can’t be seen, Without a decoder ring Off the handle, back on the shore Sleeping in forever more You can’t wish this part away You gotta think of what to say Look at me Oh, oh I can’t be seen, Without a decoder ring

The Constant 03:08
In the novel I was a farmer You were a wanderer and a sage Didn’t know if I would starve Until the harvest fell off the page Try to warn me But you didn’t want to give the ending away Now I search for signals Locked inside your gaze And it’s not that I’m too old To know Cause I have seen the rain In the movie I could go farther I could go faster and end up the same I could push harder on the wall Just to find myself still standing in place You start to get the sinking feeling That the hero can’t save the day But you stay planted in that theatre anyway And it’s not that I’m too old To know Cause I have seen the rain And it falls upon me on the road Full of salt and aerosol The supports collapse The bolts corrode away And if falls upon me on the road I can feel it soak into my bones I can hear it speak in a mighty tone And say: The only constant here is decay

Stand Back 03:15
You feel the stinging in your throat And it comes as no surprise You feel the beating of your heart And your steps land in time It’s gonna take a little force For the stars to align Stand back Don't catch yourself hanging around Watch out Scatter away like you're light through a keyhole Hey now Don't lay down dead on the ground Watch out You keep your head on a swivel kid You know exactly what you did It’s not good enough to be So conveniently blind And there will be no peace Until the train arrives on time And you try to change the seas And they try to move the line Stand back Don't catch yourself hanging around Watch out Scatter away like you're light through a keyhole Hey now Don't lay down dead on the ground Watch out You know exactly what you did They know exactly where you live

On a Train 02:49
You’re reeling It’s a new kind of feeling And clearly you see it But you still don’t believe it On a train, without a stop Is this the track that we want? Hey now, don’t look at me, I could be wrong But if I pull on the brake Is it all it would take? Or would the heart of this engine still motor on? And you’re seething Seeing is believing But it’s not enough to know it And hope not to blow it And you’re seeing A seedling is believing But it’s not enough to sow it You still gotta grow it On a train, without a stop Is this the platform we want? Hey now, don’t look at me, I could be wrong But if I pull on the brake Is it all it would take? Or would the heart of this monster still motor on?

Little Dream 03:32
Oh sunny day, wash me awake With golden rays so warm and vital Let every song start with sha la la Let the chorus ring out proud and wild Let the breaking spring, clean the vacant streets Let the city breathe like a newborn child Let the budding leaves and the coming green Set my mind at ease just for awhile But the winding prose Never shows Or won’t disclose If I’m not here Where I go When I disappear Oh little dream, set my body free Let me circle the trees like a red breast robin As we count the days, let the records play So that one delight is not forgotten Find the faintest spark in the darkest pit Find a guiding star on the horizon Take an ancient map to a brand new love Build a sheltered nest of care and passion But the winding prose Never shows Or won’t disclose If I’m not here Where I go When I disappear Walk on the wire, take a breath and don’t look down Don’t stop to check, if the rope will come unwound Do not forget, that you won’t hear a sound In the event you hit the ground Oh flower moon, you come too soon, You fill the night with anguished trials, As the hours pass and the tallies mount Let no name be lost into the spiral Let every hand reach and touch a heart Though separated by a mile Let our legacy be the light of love, Spread from the rooftops weird and viral

Over Now 03:27
You can bury it down, under the garden, beneath the beets You can mess it around, mess up the order, and swap the seeds But still there’s something growing That knows no retreat Oh-Oh It’s over now Access your bank account, empty it out (It’s nothing nothing) Oh-Oh it’s over now Light the cigar that will burn down the house (It’s nothing, nothing) Oh-Oh, it’s over now Oh-Oh, it’s over now You can bully us now Block off the alley and barricade the streets You can finish the night In fits of fury and acts of deceit But there’s a phoenix rising With flames beneath her feet Oh-Oh it’s over now Light the cigar that will burn down the house (It’s nothing, nothing) Oh-Oh, it’s over now Unplug the life support and play me out (It's nothing, nothing) Oh-Oh, it’s over now Oh-Oh, it’s over now Oh-Oh it’s over now Light the cigar that will burn down the house (It’s nothing, nothing) Oh-Oh it’s over now Melt down your badges and build us a plow (It takes nothing, nothing) Oh-Oh, it’s over now Oh-Oh, it’s over now

Walking out on sunbeams Hold my hand Central Square, I’m leaving To start again Packing up the suitcase Fit you in With a hologram of something From within When a sleepless night Crawls to day, You were here to ease the pain Halo swings around us Catch my fall The apartment smells like flowers Fresh and tall A reminder of your brilliance On the wall Next to phone that’s never Ready for the call But the dam of now will surely break And wash the past away Walking out on sun beams Hold my hand A cluttered room of keepsakes To defend Walking by the turnstile I’ll swipe you in For a hologram of something From within When a sleepless night Crawls to day, You were here to ease the pain You were here to ease the pain

Runway 03:20
Said you’d never walk here again But then you took a step in my direction And saw the cursive scribbled underneath the desk Well I don’t mean to contend Just seems an ounce short of perfection The verses trailing off into the depths I’m sitting on the runway I’m never going back this way again I know it could be my undoing If I can’t keep up with your pace There’s no obvious play No way to make you happy and gay again No joke to make your mug crack a smile No superlative thing to say Now we don’t have to pretend We have a deep cosmic connection A shared diary hidden under of your bed Now I can’t make amends You got the right to use your own discretion Sticking around for whatever life here is left I’m sitting on the runway I’m never going back this way again I know it could be my undoing If I can’t keep up with your pace There’s no obvious play No way to make you happy and gay again No joke to make your mug crack a smile No perfect little thing to say I’m sitting on the runway I’m never going back this way again I know it could be my undoing If I can’t keep up with your pace If I can’t keep up with your pace If I can’t keep up with your pace
9.
Summer Rain 03:14
Yeah, you gotta snap the chain Quicker than a summer rain Rolls off your Corolla’s hood Some things are understood To be smaller than a speck of grain Lost on the astral plane You’re too real to be good Let me know if you would Put it down, on the ground Walk away Stoned in the blazing sun Baked on the neon lawn You got me on the fray What else can I say? But I see it as a refraction Light bends around your love And warps both time and space You put me in a place If my steps retrace I’ll find your warm embrace So bury my hands In the sand Sink away
10.
Well I climbed up the ladder Then I took a slip down the chute I saw you off in the distance Were you struggling too? And they’re gonna say it don’t matter And you’re supposed to act like you knew But then you think of everything you have to lose And they’re counting on their best to break you And it’s hard to find a center When all the spokes are removed I get lost in the ether And come home tired and bruised Then they’re gonna say there’s a reason And you’re supposed to act like that’s true But then you think of everything you have to lose And they’re counting on their best to break you And they say there’s an answer If you just follow the clues But then you think of everything you have to lose And they’re counting on their best to break you

Sea of You 03:31
I want to jump off the deck today I want to drown in a sea of you I want to take a big deep breath of Your dark blue Cause I am floating in disarray I want to find something true I want to make myself a part of Your world view And all of your waves come crashing through Strip off the paint and start anew I want to meet the dawn awake Dripping wet in your morning dew I want to seed the clouds to break While the veil is removed And all of your waves come crashing through Strip off the paint and start anew I want to jump off the deck today I want to drown in a sea of you I want to take a big deep breath of Your dark blue Your dark blue Your dark blue Your dark

Unglued 04:38
I do It took a long time to find you And now I hope to excite you And never try to define you 'Cause I do I hope I can delight you And never want to defy you Maybe try to unwind you 'Cause you make me come unglued And you make me feel brand new I do I’ve been trying to sign you That I can never decline you Because the arrow goes straight through 'Cause you make me come unglued And you make me feel brand new She knows just what to say To take me back to ground And so I’ll be a stone In her crown I do I’ll be the limbs that entwine you And never have to remind you That the arrow goes straight through 'Cause you make me come unglued And you make me feel brand new
