Track Name: Unforgiving Light
I will not waste the moonlight
Seems like a decent idea at the time
The curse of a clearing hindsight
Introduces the soul to the fire

Living by the lies
That hold you up to unforgiving light
Still focusing our eyes
Shaking, giving life
To colors that attach themselves to love, light, and to pain

Help me in my sorrow when it’s showing in my face
What can it mean?
Why do i feel this old way?

What made him wait for so long?
Another lunatic with a hand-me-down song
Pressing his soul into wet concrete
Introducing the heart to the lungs

It come’s as no surprise
The bird that sings so sweetly always flies far from me
I have only eyes
For one who lays beside me
Through my turns of disarray, and disguise

I forgot the lies
Now i shrug the unforgiving light
Makes me brave, happy, and kind
Stirring giving life
To colors that attach themselves to love, light, and to pain

Released me from my sorrow songs & dues iv’e yet to pay
What can it mean?
Why do i feel this old way?
Track Name: Shifty
You say you love me more than you could love yourself
Shake the dream from your hair honey child
Why’d you ever put that onto somebody else
it’s sweet, but it aint t fair. and it ain’t fine

Your paper and your pen have got you pale in the face
Don’t be scared of anything, just write!
There really is a madness to the shape were in
I’m escaping from my body at night

I keep on shifting my stance
to roll with the punches at hand
This aint no place to get attached
its a downhill trip from here to the end


Im too sure to wonder if it’s worth my health
I got to be out of my mind
Slapping that guitar like it owes me the rent
For my body, my soul, and my time

If i’m here right now it doesn't hurt a bit
When i’m feeling aligned

damn! you're pretty but there ain’t no sense
already squeezin’ me a little too tight

I keep on shifting my stance
got to roll with the punches at hand
the strangest place to get attached
just a downhill trip from here to the end
