Track Name: Chromatic (feat. Clara Hannigan)
A turquoise melts into azure
Crimson where the sun kisses the shore
At the heart of the entire Earth
The place where all beauty is birthed
Chasms reach into the depths
Hopes and love come here at death
To a world made of lost dreams
At the bottom of this ravine

The rest of the world is a dark gray
Barren from pollution and war
With a little of his own hopes and dreams
And some paint a boy colored the land once more

But then came a man in a gray suit
He snatched the boy's paint like a brute
With gray hair and a gray mustache
He wanted the world the color of ash
The paint and brush vanished in thin air
The boy was filled with anguish and despair
There would not be a colorful soul
Only the color of charcoal

So he decided to rebel against the man
And said we live in melancholy and fear
So the man took the boy by the hand
And locked him away for years and years
Track Name: Every Good Thing Goes
I don't understand
Why the leaves that were green fall off trees
I don't understand
Why the moon and stars go past eve
I don't understand
Why we can't stay awake when we sleep
And I don't understand
Why good things eventually have to leave

Maybe I'm just dumb
Maybe I'm ignorant
But every good thing goes
I can't wrap my mind around it

I don't understand
Why we don't celebrate every week
I don't understand
Why waves come to a crash in the sea
I don't understand
Why people can't all live in peace
And I don't understand
Why good things eventually have to leave

Maybe I'm just dumb
Maybe I'm ignorant
But every good thing goes
I can't wrap my mind around it

There are things we don't see
You never know what's underlying
So pick that flower now
Because tomorrow it might be dying
Track Name: Float (feat. Emilia Byrne & Tatiana Reyes)
I don't know why I come back again
Forgotten like I was lost deep in the desert sand
I could even write my name down for you in lead
I could even carve it into the back of your hand
I could break open the sky and show the moon and stars and
The sun and galaxies and very many distant lands
And shine a vibrant light onto where you still stand
But I'd still be forgotten like King Ozymand'

Sometimes you'll fall down
You just gotta get back up again
Sometimes you'll start to drown
You just gotta take a bigger breath

I think that now I understand
Not forgotten but put on wait until I can
Swim alone in this metaphorical ocean
Not forgotten but I need to take off my life vest
I just have to float until I am
Back to shore where you continue to promptly stand
I don't have to break open the sky for acceptance
I just gotta float until I can be noticed

Sometimes you'll fall down
You just gotta get back up again
Sometimes you'll start to drown
You just gotta take a bigger breath
Track Name: Losing My Mind (feat. Bryce Condon)
I've been waiting all this time
I've been wishing that you'd be mine
I've been hoping that you'd stay
But I let my feelings push you away
I've been wanting for you to see
The kind of person I can be, yeah

Please forgive me
I think I'm losing my mind
But all I want from you
Is just a moment of your time

I've been praying my life away
I'm still listening for God to say
That you don't need her, but I think I do
I still can't see myself getting over you

Please forgive me
I think I'm losing my mind, yeah yeah
But all I want from you
Is just a moment of your time, whoa

I was waiting all this time
I was wishing that you'd be mine
But now I see you don't belong with me
I thought I lost my mind but I was really set free
Track Name: Tired of It
I'm tired of it - seeing the kids waste their potential
Letting the world go by and walk on their faces while they sit still
Trying to get by at the bare minimum 'til they write out their wills
This goes out to the kids who suffer 'cause things aren't going well
So take the talent you hold and mold it so you can dethrone
The corrosive focus of folks who try to coax us to show
That we're all a bunch of hopeless jokes in their propaganda; their hold
Let them provoke us to stand up and invoke their control
Have a voice and say no and take a deep long breath
I'm tired of the world living in this inferiority complex
How will there be progress if kids pass by cheating on tests
This is nonsense, there's no compromise for this conflict
So no promises that the next generation will be better
Teens dressed to show skin or hide cuts under their sweaters
12 year olds buying drugs and guns under the media's pressure
So I'm down here writing my thoughts underneath the cellar
Making messages that are clever to to spread good vibes or whatever
So whether I measure up to the corrupt sound waves and images
I'll still try to kill the carcinogens with my musical messages
And help kids see that their potential is limitless
So quit acting so primitive and go start building some bridges
I'm tired of seeing youth thinking they're at the end of their personal ridges
Ready to jump, ready to swallow a whole bottle of pills
The sight of depressed teens at their ends gives me the chills
And I guess I'm empathetic because I know how it feels
But it isn't their fault, it's because of pop culture's ideals
So to the kids who think they're nothing because something's gone wrong
Just know that things will change and you're worth living out life long
Track Name: The Somber Woods (feat. Clara Hannigan)
White rested on the pine
Chilling yet so divine
Mist blanketed the snow
Rain quietly echoed
Soft crunch beneath my feet
The view was rather bleak
Deeper into the twilight
This quiet rainy night

And as my shadows stood up
To dance in circles where I stood
When I stood there alone
The deepest part of the woods
The creaked and swayed with woe
The clouds cried a terrible sob
And I continued to stand and listen
When the winds played this song

Somber is the tale of the woods
Her misery's a glacial wave
She'd be helped if she could
But some people can't be saved

White rested on the pine
Chilling yet so divine
Mist blanketed the snow
Rain quietly echoed
Soft crunch beneath my feet
The view was rather bleak
Deeper into the twilight
This quiet rainy night

And as my shadows stood up
To dance in circles where I stood
When I stood there all alone
The deepest part of the woods
The creaked and swayed with woe
The clouds cried a terrible sob
And I continued to stand and listen
When the winds played this song

Somber is the tale of the woods
Her misery's a glacial wave
She'd be helped if she could
But some people can't be saved

Somber is the tale of the woods
Her misery's a glacial wave
She'd be helped if she could
But some people can't be saved
