Track Name: New Wilderness
Power lines draw an arc ‘cross the sky as red and rusty as blood.
From the backseat I could theorize all those things to come.
But beneath the pines, we committed the crime of being much too young to realize we had time on our side, but now that’s over and done.

On fire escapes the whole city shakes as the air fills with dust
It’s not hard to see that when we breathe it’s much too dangerous
But you said to me that you had to leave and I said well if you must.
But don’t expect me to ever grieve for the ending of us.

The distance is getting further each day.
The memories are starting to fade.
Track Name: Black Maria
Turning slowly towards the sun, to look back on all you’ve done.
Tar paper covered walls couldn’t contain it all.

Oh, Black Maria

Beacon of the Garden State. The whole world illuminates.
Pictures of butterflies and Ghost Dance before our eyes.

Oh, Black Maria

You built the lights that burned out the night
And you made the waves that crackle and fade.

Oh, Black Maria
Track Name: 10 Year Drought
Hail to the rain, and to the day that we walk away.
And we’ll celebrate our escape from this empty place.

Hail to the snow, and to the glow after the show.
And what we think we’re owed, it won’t cover what we don’t know.

Here’s to the age of, never giving up.
But this is the year of, more the same.

Hail to the hail, the times we fail, the times we don’t succeed.
Further up the trail we’ll discover where we’re meant to be.

Here’s to the age of, never giving up.
But this is the year of, more the same.

Here’s to the age of, never giving up.
But this is the year of, more the same.
Track Name: Shut Your Mouth
So close you can feel it when they turn their backs.
I know excuses they don’t make up for facts.
And they’ll do it again. It’s just too easy to...

Come on, hang on to the things you never had and my attention.
Come on, hang on to the things that make you sad and my affection.

You said no love song would ever do, so I wrote this one for you.
But you’re not even listening, and there’s just too many to...

Come on, hang on to the things you never had and my attention.
Come on, hang on to the things that make you sad and my affection.

It’s starting to sink in, what we’re up against, what we’re up against.
It’s starting to sink in, the ones that we call friends, the ones that we call…
Track Name: Tracers
Make me, don’t tell me when to smile.
Maybe that’s just not our style.
But if we don’t meet your gaze, we’re the ones who have to pay.

What do you believe? Who are you to tell us how and where to be?
We already occupy this space. No exclusions. This time you have been traced.

What are you afraid of, my sweet side?
If we don’t fit your definitions, you denigrate us and cover it with lies.

What do you believe? Who are you to tell us how and where to be?
We already occupy this space. No exclusions. This time you have been traced.
Track Name: Waking Up (From Sleeping)
I’m waking up from sleeping. I didn’t dream that you were keeping,
A place for me next you, so now we’re one, when we were too
Afraid to turn on the lights and see what kind of horrors might
Be waiting there under our beds, we pulled the covers to our heads but

Now, the sun shines through the shades,
And we both awake, to find, that we were always okay.

So we’ll dance as the stereo sings songs of love, and loss, and hope.
And try to act like visionaries living beyond binary
Systems like, wrong and right, and us and them, and day and night
I count the stars in your eyes and in your arms I realize that

Now, the sun shines through the shades,
And we both awake, to find, that we were always okay.

I don’t wanna go to sleep again, ‘cause I am already dreaming.

And now, the sun shines through the shades,
and we both awake, to find, that we were always okay.
Track Name: Legion Halls, Liquor Stores
From the legion halls to the liquor stores,
And the shopping malls to the reservoir,
We are all searching for more, but we won’t find a single thing tonight.

And the parking lot, pay phones,
And the gas station to the mobile homes,
We just want some place to go, but there’s no where that we belong tonight.

Yes I am aware that there is no reason,
But I’ll never know completion.
And I’m lousy with your best intentions,
And these secrets, I’ll surely tell.

From the legion halls, to the liquor stores.
