Pages 03:39
Opened a book on the rugged beauty of the west Watching the stills Stuck on a panoramic river scene Perched on the empty hills I'm longing in the magazines With pages of homes It's like I've gathered made up memories I've seen these floors before A shared double bed is so far ahead I'm not the type to stay down on the muddy ground Even under fire I will look around Because something good is to be found
2.
My task before the last few limbs of light point way beyond / The pitch black hills where the night is young and the air is crystal and cold / Is to balance out the colors in my mind and separate / The oil from the water with the pressures from the day What I place under the handle or what I shake into the lock / Should lead me to my resting place / My solace and my rock So I wait on sunny concrete by the grasses / Here until / I can offer more than the fractures in my skull up from this hill Smell the pine Sip the dew There is a river of wine I will dissolve into Now I'm not chasing anyone I'm just running to be hidden The highway twists under the moon and turning back is forbidden Then I should be enlightened sleeping in among the thistles A roadside remedy for my comfort and my pride Maybe I'll be awoken with a resurrected mind Greeted by your open arms I'll be all you find Smell the pine Sip the dew There is a river of wine I will dissolve into
3.
A patch of crooked blades / Bouncing in a gust I've risen from my maze / Just brushing off the dust There are greener pastures / I've felt that rest within Now I'm the only one filling up this crowded room Hope will not be late And all the shy will congregate Loved ones gather 'round / Oh / They mean so well Brother and sister you aren't to blame and I don't hold a candle I'm laughing when I'm outside / Pensive through the open doors Where I'm screaming underneath my skin and whispers coat the floors Hope will not be late And all the shy will congregate

Bury 04:50
Dodging the cold that lifts from your tongue On the terraces I'd smile more blank but more far than anyone I'd bury my stones / Scattered all underneath the sun One by one until they're gone Pale and beautiful your cheeks go red Well mine too / We're dead giveaways / We cannot hide our skin A little focus shows a thread so thin I will not chase this rosy love It's a shallow sea I'm in Warm in all my layers / The soil is breathing What i've been told I'm not quite believing Warm in all my layers / The grounds will moan My strange behavior for every sunken stone
5.
It is spinning deep within me I am standing in it's way I've got to eat / I've got to sleep Where's a scent to drift on? In the corner of my bed I remember what you said It echoes clearly in my head and makes a way into my feather light rest I will use what lies around to scale mole hills no ones found Bursting floor boards / Popping nails They're sucking the wind away from the sails In the corner of my bed I remember what you said It echoes clearly in my head and makes a way into my feather light rest
6.
Let me be on my side Tomorrow I want to chase you like a child I've got these bags under my eyes / I've been turning all night Right beside my luminous window / The curtain thin and white Any darkness out of sight So roll me roll me over And let me be on my side I was a boy / I faced the door when I slept Yeah I let me be on my side I had an old bowling pin that I kept Just incase Because fear keeps my wits about / The smarts I never had I wouldn't want to end up feeling bad So roll me roll me over And let me be on my side Things are running smooth these days So let me be on my side All my high hopes move like waves I can't predict and I cannot ride But I am older now / I beat my pillow in my sleep Some dreams I've got to keep So roll me roll me over Bring down the walls Burn the blinds So I can be on my side

Good Arvo 03:59
Put your feet up / I'll do the swingin' We can stop when your head starts spinnin' Ripples in the pool Rattling the sky Ginger beer and pepper A distant sleeping tide My head / My beating heart Know where to go The rain dilutes my blood I let it follow The rules the rules A drawer of broken tools To question the glue / Holding through / Is understandable What a place to know Wake up It's the rush Be ready Wake up
8.
I was just washing my hands and for a split second there was peace in my chest I had my fingers under the tap and for a split second there it was Deep in my chest It shone like gold / Brought down on a twirling path / Coming from the vicious half The spinning cells of a storm I know the truth I know what's right No need to fret Or lose rest That love dove was pirouetting above me / A silhouette in a sun beam But that's nothing new and that's the way it was meant to be As I stood trusting in my every thought / Forgetting all that I had been taught It arrived fresh with the water Now drying on my hand It said I know the truth I know what's right No need to fret No need to worry I'll know it's you I'll know the time There'll be no story There will be no story

Swims Alone 04:19
I used to go for swims alone Lord would follow me towards the sea Where branches knitted their shadows in the sand And water lapped around my hands I used to go for walks alone Lord would follow fast along the path I'd leave my money in my wallet / In the car I never really went that far I never really went that far You are dealing with a worried man Who's clinging on to all his plans When I'd go and work alone Jobs were given / Left / Then thrown Drifting towards a summer flame You make the team / You play the game I'm just a moth amidst the pouring rain You are dealing with a worried man Who's clinging on to all his plans It's a blessing and it's a spell And It's no place to love you well
