Track Name: Stop Back
Let me know
I’ll watch you grow
No I can’t stop back on a canyon
And I can’t stop back on a mountain
Let me know
Let me know
When I go
Push comes to show
And they know
That I can’t stop back on a canyon
And I can’t stop back on a mountain
Let me know
Let me know
Track Name: The Grey Area
In the grey area I have felt heavier
But my colors won’t come through
Just like you have and always do
In the grey here to stay
I try to paint myself away
But I can’t it’s all wrong
Just like when you try and force a song
And you can leave with your anger and it’s never understood
Getting mad like you would
And nobody told you that you wanted to make your own way
Stay the course hit replay
Hit replay
I have held onto a universal must then again we are all
Yes we’re all stardust
And though I can’t understand how I fall where I land
I am ground and sometimes
I am even air bound
And you can leave with your anger and it’s never understood
Getting mad’s never good
And nobody told you that you wanted to make your own way
Stay the course hit replay
Hit replay
And nobody told you that you wanted to make your own way
Stay the course
In the grey area I have felt heavier
But my colors won’t come through
Just like you have and always do
Track Name: Felicity City
Skinny white boy why you comb your hair?
With the rebels down South do you feel better there?
How can I dream if I can’t sleep?
Skinny white boy my city’s dug deep
We come around once again
Six pipers pending posts and prints
You kept me happy its what I’ve gained
Relatively speaking it’s all the same
Felicity city
Felicity city
City life motion keeps us quiet
But what makes us loud is it the flow?
I build my beast my days desired
Skinny white boy who’s on the go
We come around once again
Six pipers pending posts and prints
You kept me happy its what I’ve gained
Happiness can drive a man insane
Felicity city
Felicity city
Track Name: Kelly's Eyes (Kelly's Island)
Walking back through this door
I let myself hang low
And then I carry carry on
With my mind all slow and
I think you’re good
In Kelly’s Eyes
In Kelly’s Island
In Kelly’s Eyes
In Kelly’s Eyes now for me
You can never hate on the ones you love
Unless of course they come back through and fuck all your shit up
I think you’re good
In Kelly’s Eyes
In Kelly’s Island
In Kelly’s Eyes
In Kelly’s Eyes now for me
I think you’re good
In Kelly’s Eyes
In Kelly’s Island
Track Name: Autumn Thursdays
Autumn Thursdays pass by
In a slow familiar time
And it goes without saying
An unspoken hiatus
You left me all alone
On the corner with the telephone
What words were to remain?
The feelings not the same
And it goes without saying
An unspoken hiatus
You left me here with a smile on my face
Though I never really had the chance to complicate my common place
So I left things where they stand
Autumn Thursdays bring it down in the Fall
It's hard to believe what I see
What I hear not at all
And it goes without saying
An unspoken hiatus
You left me here with a smile on my face
Though I never really had the chance to complicate my common place
Track Name: No One Can Teach You To See
There was a time when I could recognize
The things we had the things we shared when we looked into, into each other’s eyes.
But another days begun and I am done trying to despite everything that I…
…I’ve always been a drifter running back to you
Even though you’ve pushed me away my word was always true.
It’s always hard to see why things don’t last
And I am scared to see how the future may become, may become the past.
And though you’ve tried to prove it all to me
I just don’t see things the same which is why I…
…I know it’s hard to see this when we’re only left to stray.
Our paths are always different but the search is always the way.
Who am I to blame this?
It’s something I can’t find.
Through the course of time.
My dearest boy I’ve tried to help the cause
But I have searched and often lost.
Despite everything you’ve done for me.
Cause no one can teach.
No one can teach you to see.
