Looking tough Taken back Shapin' up Losin' tact Play the flush Keep it stacked Call the bluff Can't go back Diamonds in the sea Find a way to be Speak the truth Move your feet Cash it out Find the freak Hold it close Spoke the speak Made the most Thought the think Bound but now I'm free Blind but now I see Making it last Tasting the past Breaking the fast

In Time 05:18
Well Well I can't tell If I got hit by that train Or if I got out of the way In time, in time, in time, in time I guess only time can say Well well Hell's bells What will I do Ever aftering without you Without you, without you, without you, yeah you Without ya, I'll get through Cause you always got me thinking and wishing just a little too much And I try to keep my head up, but baby it's tough, so tough If I don't lose my mind, I might come out ok But if I don't get lost, you steal it away In time Without you Oh now before I go, I've got to know Will you be coming around Or crawling back into the ground In Time, In Time, In Time, In Time I guess only time can say

When you awake, I'll write a poem about you sleeping And if you're late, I'll pass the time Just like I did before Well I told you That if you snore I would tell you Your sleeping body, it resembles a constellation That I would watch as a child Had no connection until now Well I told you That if you snore I would tell you When you awake, I'll write a poem about you sleeping....

One Eye Shut 03:43
Eyes are open Eyes are shut Running backwards Facing front You keep squirming Like a frightened runt They're forcing you to choose You can't stop You know you can't lose No, you can't be topped I admire what you're choosing Guess you know what you're doing I want you to be everything You think you need to be I want you to fail Your dreams won't make you happy Nothing means as much as everything Sometimes you got to bleed Eyes are open One eye shut Why don't you open the other one up?

Side by side all day This is how we play No miles on our shoes They couldn't take the abuse Posting pictures of you in your youth If it ain't that, it's just kittens and food Keep on scrolling like there's something to prove Your mind is running, but you haven't moved We haven't spoken, but we're in the same room Cause selfies, babies, kittens, and food At the park and ride You offered to drive So I rode with you Then you hit some dude Posting pictures of you in your youth Politics, candidates, kittens, and food Keep on scrolling like there's something to prove Your mind is running, but you haven't moved Guess I know what puts you in the mood Scrolling selfies, kittens, and food So inside we stay Got no time to play Conversation's dead No more words, just threads Posting pictures of you in your youth Politics, candidates, kittens, and food

Your mind, it works in terrible ways You keep building up bridges and lighting up matches And blowing it all away Well soon you'll be starving It's not a game anymore You knew you lost You knew the cost Still you joined in on the war On the road from rags to riches You were stuck at every toll Your conscience was stranded Your hands were tied It was time for something bold Time to open your eyes It's painful sometimes You've got nothing to lose But if you're not confused You don't know what's going on But if you come back down I'll meet you in the middle Knowing your way shouldn't have to be a riddle "It's all the same," she said "You see? The road I'm on, it carries me." But don't get lost, girl Spinning your tires Candle's burned down But the day is getting brighter "It's all the same," she said "You see? The world is full of liars and thieves. It's all the same." And suddenly your head is spinning But you cannot make a sound You keep ghosts for companions And haunt your own mansion But there's still no one around On a corner in some dark city Under a street light, in the cold There a man stood shouting And his voice was heard all down the road He was locked into position As there echoed sound of sweet submission He threw up his hands Then he started to dance And he found his way back home But if you come back down I'll meet you in the middle Knowing your way shouldn't have to be a riddle "It's all the same," she said "You see? The road I'm on, it carries me." But don't get lost, girl Spinning your tires Candle's burned down But the day is getting brighter "It's all the same," she said "You see? The world is full of liars and thieves. It's all the same."

You are my favorite high You make my world go by Faster than I realize You're better taken with a meal Loving you, babe Is exactly how I feel For you, I won't wear my disguise So I will look real in your eyes Baby, we'll be fine Loving you, babe Is just a matter of time Time will be hard Will make you realize In love.... Loving you, Babe, is just a matter of time.

She's the troublin' kind and I'm losing my mind I played the fool pretended not to notice but my baby's doin' fine Say you've got a home Well, there's no place like mine You were lookin' to roam And oh, you needed time But still that phone rings every mornin' As you issue your next warnin' Consider yourself lucky That you even had a chance You could've found yourself in a prison Well, that's not my kind of romance, oh no She's the troublin kind And I'm losing my mind I played the fool Pretended not to notice But my baby's doin' fine

Here stuck in the movement Here stuck in the mind Take seconds to realize Can't ever define We're stuck in the moment No concept of time Waste wonders just worrying Turns out we're just fine It's all over When it's all good, good, good, good, good I'd like to inform you It's starting to feel just like it should In the midst of the turnstyle In the mix of a change Making seconds to reprise Taking segments from days Here stuck in the movement Here stuck in the mind Take seconds to realize Can't ever define It's all under When it's time to go, go, go, go, go No time to wonder So keep your ducks in a row When you get to the moment When you find your stage Let the people adore you So you can endure all the rage Get through to you Shoot the moon On the top Stop Watch Time Drop Here stuck in the movement Here stuck in the mind Take seconds to realize Can't ever define We're stuck in the moment No concept of time Waste wonders just worrying Turns out we're just fine (spoken word by Seth Bernard)

The Fix 06:07
When the weight is on your shoulder I'll hold ya Though you're in that state of mind You'll shine And it's good to see you from time to time Though you're always on my mind I can't hide Try to fight the quick fix No cure but time Didn't see it coming Now I can't hide Roped me in and hung me out to dry Still I feel somehow like I've been here before My mind, it can't stop wandering back for more Try fight the quick fix No cure but time No cure but time When the weight is on your shoulder I'll hold ya Though you're in that state of mind you'll shine It's good to see you from time to time Though you're always on my mind I can't hide Try to fight the quick fix No cure but time And you can't hold back You shouldn't prolong it now Maybe happiness can find us both somehow Til we meet again I wish the best for you Hope you find some love In all the things you do Try to fight the quick fix No cure but time No cure but time I did everything I could Just to show you how I was more It was all I could do To pretend I didn't need you no more Even though I tried to show you That this wasn't the game Nobody ever thought That you'd be dishing the blame Just try to play nice Time to throw it away Cause I can't fool myself this way When the weight is on your shoulder I'll hold ya
