Track Name: This Moment In Time
I'll close my eyes and I will fall asleep
to dream of a world where you would follow me
and if we fall apart by the morning light
I wanna freeze that moment in time

In this moment in time
I wanna freeze right here
When I stand before your eyes
I wanna break that stare

I remember talking over everything
But now there's a wall of glass that's caught between
and if we break the glass and we bleed and cry
I wanna freeze that moment in time

In this moment in time
I wanna freeze right here
When I stand before your eyes
I wanna break that stare
Track Name: Ostrich
Wrapped up in this cold, New England winter
I stayed locked inside my room
Racked my mind up over you
and all without a sound, without a wimper
I read Ginsberg under sheets
feeling like a total creep

How could I prove myself to you
when I don't know quite what you want me to do

But I don't want to hide my head underneath
the sand or the water
I just want to be


Tonight I'll dream that I've become and ostrich
and I'll run so far away
in a sea of tape delay
I'll feel like I've been holding myself hostage
and I'll wake up in cold sweats
all alone over my bed

But how could I change my point of view
when I ain't got nothing to pull me through


But I don't want to hide my head underneath
the sand or the water
I just want to be

aaaahhh!
Track Name: Feel No Danger
I ain't doin' no more talking
I'll hide away in time for you to see
that when you're done with all your conversation
I'm just pretending that you found me

I've barely even broken free
got no excuse to disagree
but you'll get nothing out of me

If I feel no danger, then why can't I breath?
If I feel no danger, then why can't I let it be?

I'm stuck inside a memory
of all your facts of things that used to be
and you
you're doing too much changing
and I'm just pretending that you found me


I've barely even broken free
got no excuse to disagree
but you'll get nothing out of me

If I feel no danger, then why can't I breath?
If I feel no danger, then why can't I let it be?
Track Name: Shifting Shapes
You're in the middle of a lie
shaping yourself up to size
pretending to be something that you're not
I heard you crying on the phone
Don't you remember coming home?
and if I threw the first stone, I pray my aim's dead on

when all your fancy friends are gone

I'm shifting shape again, oh no
I'm shifting shape again, oh no
I tried to take you with me past the boundries of the thoughts that kill me

So you put yourself in line
and you tried to redefine
the things you always seemed to think you'd need
but when these 9 years pass away
and you see the light of day
do you even think you can be freed?

and if you come on home to me

I'm shifting shape again, oh no
I'm shifting shape again, oh no
I tried to take you with me past the boundries of the thoughts that kill me
Track Name: Young And Dumb
I don't know why I even tried.
Your silver smile spat rusted lies
Not that you never let it show,
but I was too young and dumb to know

I've been starting over baby I don't need you by my side
I've been starting over baby and it's time I said goodbye

My heart is shining brighter now
I've seen the light and cast you out
Don't want to brag but, I have to say
I don't need you and I'm OK.

I've been starting over baby I don't need you by my side
I've been starting over baby and it's time I said goodbye
Track Name: Full Moon
I was fine
getting back into my shoes, after falling apart
pushed rewind
put it back into it's case
before I had time to start

a full moon can't shoot me in the back
and walk out of line
from my view
all covered up in black
and shivering down my spine

I was blind
pulling teeth out with a pen
under every light
I found myself
standing closer to the edge
without a rope in sight.

a full moon can't shoot me in the back
and walk out of line
from my view
all covered up in black
and shivering down my spine

Track Name: Worse Things
Darkness looming around me lately
I cannot shake this feeling
I won't be here too long
You tried, but down inside it stopped you
left you with your excuses
excuses to be alone

But if you let me, let me, let me
Let me love you
Don't you know that there are Worse Things you could do?
And if you let me, let me, let me
Let me love you
Well don't you know that we could start over a'new.

I've been locked up inside my bedroom
Cooped up and feeling gloomy
--Feel like I'm losing friends.
It's been raining inside of my heart.
Filled it right up and drowned me,
Tore me to odds and ends.

But if you let me, let me, let me
Let me love you
Don't you know that there are Worse Things you could do?
And if you let me, let me, let me
Let me love you
Well don't you know that we could start over a'new.
Track Name: Why Do Fools Fall Outta Love?
You took to me
like a leaf takes to the wind
when it's fallen from the trees
Now we're said and done
what I needed was a lover
and what you needed was some fun

You stole my heart
You stole my heart
You stole my heart
You stole my heart

You went on the run
away and over me
and you left me with the dust
How can it be done?
How can you just give it up?
Why do fools fall outta love?

You stole my heart
You stole my heart
You stole my heart
You stole my heart
my heart
my heart
my heart.
Track Name: Assateague
Call for me.
Why don't you call for me?
Why can't you understand?
It's a problem now.
And if you see,
that you need company
I hope you take my hand,
'cause it's a problem now.

Misery
He loves his company
so if you understand
it's a problem now,
Come with me.
Hop down to Assateague.
And we can try to solve
our problems, now.
Track Name: Bicycle
If you
paid attention, honey
You would see my face turn red.
and if I forgot to mention, baby
I will never turn my head

and everytime that I fall it's hard
but I get back on and then I ride along
I'll remember always wear my helmet tight
I'ma ride this out just like I ride my bike.
I ride my bike.

I love you
just like a fixed gear, baby
You're in style, but you don't make sense.
And I burn
Like a toaster, baby.
I can hardly wait to break my bread.

and everytime that I fall it's hard
but I get back on and then I ride along
I'll remember always wear my helmet tight
I'ma ride this out just like I ride my bike.
I ride my bike.
Track Name: Running Dry
I went down, in the middle of a big fight--
Movin' out.
Just to see it's running dry.
It's running dry.

and If you cared for a question, in the midst of another night,
You'd see it's running dry.
You'd see it's running dry.

Can't you see me standing naked?
I won't do nothing, if you don't make me.
I was leading onto something
If you can't hear me, I won't do nothing.

Hold my hand, for a minute
on the edge of the pier tonight
and you'll see I'm running dry
I'm running dry.
And if you have my attention, don't waste it in the light
Don't you see I'm running dry?
Can't you see I'm running dry?

Can't you see me standing naked?
I won't do nothing, if you don't make me.
I was leading onto something
If you can't hear me, I won't do nothing.
Track Name: (exit music)
(train noises)

(secret track: 'When We Danced')

When we danced alone in your bedroom
I felt a way that I hadn't for a while.
A mason jar, I filled up with sunlight, saved it for you in the hopes that you would smile.
And I would like to sing along, cause I've been solo far too long

When we live alone on the ocean, it's just a dream, but I've had it for a while.
I super glued these things to a toaster,
Gave it to you in the hopes that you would smile.
And I would like to sing along, cause I've been solo far too long
