Track Name: Wandering Jenny
Take a couple deep breaths cause you’re gonna be fine
Yeah, you’re gonna be fine my dear
Take a couple deep breaths cause you know that you’re mine
Even when it seems unclear

I know a fighter when I see her
I know a lover when I please her
She is my, she is my love
She is my love, yeah

The world will get you down but you’re better than that
Yeah, you’re better than that my dear
The world will push you around but you know it’s not flat
So we have nothing to fear

I know a fighter when I see her
I know a lover when I please her
She is my, she is my love
She is my love, yeah

Close your eyes, we don’t need to see to realize
And I said
Close your eyes, I don’t need to see to realize
If you would just
Close your eyes, you wouldn’t need to see to realize
And I said
Close your eyes, we don’t need to see to realize
Track Name: Mother Funk
Manipulation is second nature
When deceit is in your nomenclature
I never want what isn’t real
You only want what you can steal
All is fair in love and war
When no one knows what to fight for

We are at a loss my dear
A coin toss of hope and fear
I only want what I can’t have
You only want what you can stab
All is fair in love and war
Cause no one knows what to fight for

This is a menial wish for fire that burns
Like religious enthusiasts with material concerns
Invisible hands meet mutual wants
Lack of intention and unwanted taunts
No way to mediate, how can I calculate it
Contemplate my mental state
Your orbit pulls me in and I am forced to spin
I’m the fish you are the win
I’m the flesh and you’re the sin

But you must be the square root of two
Cause I feel so irrational around you
Track Name: Lovebird
I've never been caught in this before
You opened up the storm behind this door
And it's raging, and it's raging
I've been caging it but now it's free

I've always been so rational
Oh, get out now before you get hurt
And it's raging, and it's raging
I've been caging it but now it's free

Don't you say that you're my only love
If you tear down my walls, you better build them up
I'm in ruins and my heart doesn't know what to do
Cause it fell apart when I fell for you, yeah

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (x4)

I'm shaking like a tree in the wind
This is where I end and where we begin
And it's raging, and it's raging
I've been caging it but now it's free

Don't you say that you're my only love
If you tear down my walls, you better build them up
I'm in ruins and my heart doesn't know what to do
Cause it fell apart when I fell for you, yeah

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (x4)
Track Name: Come Around
Wish my life away ‘cause I wanna piss them off
I don’t wanna stay ‘cause I falter much too often
Adopting better views, still I can’t make myself see
The conflicting hues, they mix to make a fool of me

I will never come around come around
I will never come around come around
You will never come around come around
You will never come around come around

I don’t wanna play ‘cause I think you cheat to win
Wish I didn’t stay my conscience is running thin
I’m living for the day I won’t feel like a prisoner
Always get your way and you like to make it hurt

You will never come around come around
You will never come around come around
I will never come around come around
I will never come around come around

We will never come around come around
We will never come around come around
No one ever comes around comes around
No one ever comes around comes around
Track Name: Ain't No Eve
Ain’t No Eve

The hand of Midas has touched our lives
Cause all that we see is now gold
Circles are circles cause people are squares
That’s the pattern that we’re never told

The hand of Midas has touched our lives
Cause all that was silver is gold
Life is a mortgage we take on ourselves
But you better be bought to be sold

It will all be gold one day
That is what the eight balls say
I’m finding it easy to believe
Cause you ain’t no Adam
And I ain’t no Eve

The hand of Midas has touched our lives
Cause all that once glittered is gold
We will remember this time in our lives
Well after we get old

The hand of Midas has touched our lives
Cause all that was copper is gold
Pennies we throw on the ground which we walk
Money don’t always fit the mold

Take me there I wanna go
Take me there I wanna go
Take me there I wanna go
Where the fields are the sun and the sky is the snow
Take me there I wanna see
Take me there I wanna see
Take me there I wanna see
Where the sun carries you and the moon carries me
Track Name: Silver
You think you’re better than everyone else
You’ve got this sense of entitlement
I can’t stand it
What makes you think you’re such a gem
I’m tired of all the time I spent
Letting you mold me
Cause I’m fine the way I am
And you’ve always had a plan
For world domination

You obsess over what everyone’s wearing
You rate them scale of one to ten
Why are you like that
I fell for every lie you told
Because you let me join the club
A solid seven
But the way I am is fine
No numbers to define
Or separate us

Thought I saw silver on the sidewalk
But it was tinfoil in the streetlight
We see what we want to see
But I was so wrong about you
Your bark is quiet but bitch you bite

You know the evil that you’ve been doing
You wrote it from the very start
Destruction novel
And when I refused to read it
You told me I wasn’t worth your time
Diabolical
But I’m fine the way I am
I just had to have a plan
To get out of your way
Track Name: Maya
Maya when you were born
The river broke the ocean
The sky looked down just hoping
That they would meet someday
Rising water fill the space

Maya when you look old
We’ll send you a good omen
But it’ll leave erosion
The stamp a healer makes
If only you had faith

Maya it makes you whole
But they say there’s just one way
Well I think it’s all the same
Whatever your heart craves
It has more than one name
Track Name: Lukewarm Promises
Your little child has opened her mouth for the first time
What a window into the humanity of souls
The first thing that she does is cry
And, boy, the sound is starting to get old
Your little child has spoken her first full sentence
You find her question intelligent but odd
She simply asks why does everything die
If you knew that baby girl then you’d be God

We forget to make amends
Odds are never in favor
We will sell out our best friends
For a lukewarm promise from a stranger

She grew up learning how to be so selfless
But she forgets that we all have to try
The goodness is a skill that we’ve acquired
But the evil is still lurking deep inside
So cast your heavy burden on the sidewalk
Take a break to let off a little steam
It’s gonna be exhausting finding yourself
And you know the weakest cuts can still bleed

No one asks for directions it’s the blind leading the blind
Your shame won’t let you get ahead cause you feel so far behind
It’s not easy to rest your feet when you’re traveling on broken streets
They say demons are just missteps on the roads
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now that old promise has been getting cold
And for some time now
Some time now
