Track Name: Daisy Chains
We lay by the wayside
Making daisy chains
Making haisy plans
In our minds
And oh what it could be like
If we lived like that
If we lived like that
All the time

But I was in a mess and I was in a rut
And it was in my chest and it was in my gut
And I was fighting all the time
I was fighting all the time
So pull me into something beautiful
Pull me into something new
Pull me into someplace wonderful
I'm dying for a different view

Now we lay by the wayside...

All this time I had
All this time I had
All this time I had
All this time I have

Now we lay by the wayside...
Track Name: Sailing
Me and this boat we're gonna sail
Sail to the bottom of the sea
Where the starfish high five
Old ships capsize
Throwing all our troubles to
The bubbles at the seaside

Me and this boat we're gonna sink
Sink to the bottom of the sea
where the mermaids sleep
And the clownfish weep

Me and this boat we're gonna sail...

And we're sailing, falling
Don't know where we will end
And these waves keep, crashing
Down, down

And we'll know what to say
When our gods turn away
When our faith turns to grey
In the end
And we'll know what to do
When the light shines through
When the world turns yellow in the summertime

Me and this boat we're gonna sink...
Me and this boat we're gonna sail....
Track Name: Dust
Maybe it's alright to feel slightly out of place
When you're alive
Maybe it's alright to feel the need to replace
The feelings that will drown you out

And bits of rust
And bits of dust
And bits of us
That weren't cleaned up
Get under my skin

I won't forget you
I don't know how to

Please just show me that you care
There is nothing in this air
There is a hunger there's a hunger
For this feeling
I'm seething
is it sinking in?

I won't forget you
I don't know how to

So swim with me
Let the ripples and the currents pull
They take my hand like they always used to do

And bits rust
And bits of dust
And bits of us
That weren't cleaned up
Get under my skin
Track Name: Hullabaloo
Hope
Is in the water dreaming
Like it was before we
Chose to leap in
Hullabaloo, hullabaloo surrounding you

I think my old soul is gonna crack looking
Mask it over with a little bit of makeup
And I think my old heart is breaking
Because I let a little bit of hate in
Bring me down
Bring me down

Hullabaloo, hullabaloo surrounding you

And she's sorry
Oh she's very sorry
She's sorry
Oh she's very sorry

Hope is in the water dreaming
Like it was before we
Chose to leap in
Hullabaloo, hullabaloo surrounding you.
Track Name: Limbs
I watch your feelings grow
I watch you overflow
I'll take my soul and I'll sell it to the night
Leave me with nothing but the absence of light

And my limbs
Become quite thin
And my eyes
Begin to swim
I hope you don't mind but
I'm saving all my last breaths up look

It's uncontrollably
It won't be controlled I know
You will shift and you will change
You will shift and you will change

And my limbs become quite thin...

And these waves keep on falling
And my heart, keeps on stalling

I'm ok I'm alright
Are you ok
I'm ok I'm alright
Are you ok
I'm ok I'm alright
