Lately I've been praying for some sharper teeth and lately I've been softening my tongue and trying to make 'lately' last longer with steeper climbs and longer walks I am full of sparks, I am buzzing Though really, I am ready to burn I'm tightly wound, but I need locking in lock it in, lock it in lock it in, lock it in I am full of sparks I'm turning a key I'm ready to burn lock it in lock it in, lock it in

The Cliff 04:19
I taste the salt of a rising sea and I second guess the trip You found me in a softer breeze, gazing on the cliff I've tugged on rain to prove my point, it's an easy coat to wear. If the gates are bound to burst, why leave anything in the air? I know my strength, I've felt my ache, I know chasing comfort gets you lost If there's a tightening in my chest, a strange and bloody suspension, well why lie about it? I've tugged on rain to prove my point Sometimes the facts don't feel enough If the gates are bound to burst Well I'd better call my bluff Take all your time Soon you'll never have enough Take that half step To call your name and call your bluff Take all your time Before you're trembling on the cliff Take that half step It's such an awful dance to miss

Crosswoods 03:19
At a crossroads in crosswoods, I was told upon the phone That this state of living could not last, yet all my fears have come to pass I promised to try reading more and wander a little less Yet the papers end up on the floor, my head upon the desk Sentiments seem so certain when a muddled mind is murky With my toes upon the dampened green, it puts all of my thoughts at ease Though my fears have come to pass, I'm reminded this living cannot last When the lights switch off above the streets, and I look to illuminated east

Tunnel's End 03:59
I heard my ghost on a breezy highway haze I was sleeping behind my tired father, dreaming beside my sleeping brother I heard my ghost on a breezy highway haze I was sleeping behind my tired father, dreaming beside my sleeping brother We're not that far apart He's just around the bend I'm smaller than the start Chasing a tunnel's end His family forest was constantly in bloom His mother was singing of heavy water, his father about today His family forest was constantly in bloom His mother was singing of heavy water, his father about today We're not that far apart These webs have so much silk I'm smaller than the start but I'm threading myself in I'm threading myself in We're not that far apart
