Track Name: The Message and the Timing
cutting your teeth
on a maiden trip across the sea
the wind breaks down our covers
you can only take the gusts head on

i typically
never think of what my future holds
you gain control of your roads
maybe it's my time to try

you take the stage
dreaming of a better day
the problem's not the message
it's the timing

i guess someday
i'll understand the choice you made
the problem's not the message
it's the timing
Track Name: You and Her and Me
from the lights on your riser
use your eyes as a cipher
could a song take me higher?

all the songs that you've played, yeah
all the notes yet to come out
never thought you could stop it

hold me, hold me
a while before you go
it's not as if you are the last to know

in your bedroom recordings
made a bed in your lyrics
lulled asleep by your static

there you'll find me
holding on to your LP
it's not just you and her
it's you and her and me

so stand up, stand up
and play me one last show
it's not as if you are the last to know
find me a light that I can hold
it's not as if you are the last to know

you ever wonder
how mettle breaks with conflict
to ask my younger
self to grow minus your help

one chord is all i need
one tour is all i need
one touch is all i need
to learn how to play on
Track Name: My Boat
my life, my girl, my boat
landsick, my grip turns to stay afloat
so long, so long, i'm getting old
tides take back lines that measure my soul

i'll sail away
i'll sail away
i'll sail into the ocean spray
i'll sail away

your life, your boy, no boat
land rich, your debts mean you're always broke
so long, so long, you're getting old
waves give me life that sustain my soul

i'll sail away
i'll sail away
i'll sail into the ocean spray

i'll sail away
i'll sail away
i'll sail, you'll never see me fray

i'll sail away
i'll sail away
i'll sail, i'm making my escape

i'll sail away
Track Name: 7, 6, 8
hard times:
you know they're just a vision
your parachute is open but you're speeding up
you gotta stop and listen

sometimes it feels you're not quite the man
you thought you'd become
all the plans you baked are crumbling away

heavy hits
they wrench and twist your wisdom
you're reading between lines that only you can see
you gotta stop and listen

as if the drink could hold you
deep waters catch your surfboard
as you try and keep the rip tides at bay

sometimes it feels you're not quite the man
you thought you'd become
all the plans you baked are crumbling away

try to keep a lid on but everybody's high
try to turn a light off when everybody dies
baby wipe your tears off before we say goodbye
try to keep a lid on but everybody's high

out in the city
along the coast
driving too quickly
to be exposed

taking turns at the wrong speeds
you know we're ending up in the tall trees
hemlocks and pine leaves
and buying back our lives with the proceeds

baby: everytime i think i'm by
you know that i get lost in your tangles
baby: everytime i think i'm lost
you know you cut the fog with your light

you crashed the room you made for guests
only simple hearts can rest here
and share the plan to breakfast and tea

sometimes you feel you're not quite the man
you thought you'd become
all the plans you baked are crumbling away
but everybody's got to pay

try to keep a lid on but everybody's high
try to turn a light off when everybody dies
baby wipe your tears off before we say goodbye
try to keep a lid on but everybody's high
Track Name: Native Tounges
a portal to new physics
where one and two never add to three
to spot a clue in the lineup
the ghost of you haunts the dancefloor, oh!

all my basic instincts fail me to see just what might
leaving me with you in someone's sight
how could you ask my love?

reading through pursed lips framing your mouth
then you wonder if i have some doubts
how could you ask my love?

your curtains and drawn too tightly for sightlines
hiding a piece of your heart

you said you knew how to hit hard
defenses to all the 'naughts' you dream
but never take up a new language
until you said all the thoughts you scheme

in our native tongues
we're tied up trying to remember
promises we made in surrender
how could you ask my love?

bandages and patches to rip off
covering the scars from our last talk
how could you ask my love?

your curtains and drawn too tightly for sightlines
hiding a piece of your heart

just like your first time
you let another in your arms
you take the right piece out
it only seems to fall apart

you know i'll never let you
it doesn't matter what we edit
we'll leave the right side up
to carry with us all the things we never said

you know i'll never let you down
