Track Name: Long Division
Strange territory
Though we've passed this way before
Strange territory
A thinness I've not known before

For I'm a turnhurling madness driving fire upon ice fields of air
But she's already gone, taking hope with her
For I'm a sting riddled wasp's prey sic'd on by her indifference
At least now I get to touch
Her wicker face

Will you satisfy the urges that you conjure in your night?
Will you satisfy my questions crowding every space we share?
Will you take my hand or will I still call out your name?
Will you wait here wanting something more from me?

It's eating me
I can feel it chew
It's eating me
It's violent now

Pennsylvania summer, where have you gone?

Will you satisfy the urges that you conjure in your night?
Will you satisfy my questions crowding every space we share?
Will you take my hand or will I still call out your name?
Will you wait here wanting something more from me?
Track Name: Kids These Days
It's hard business
getting out of bed when you feel like this
It's past worth it
and it's picking at the seams telling me what I want more

I once had a dream
To tell me that I'm

I'm swimming but I'm four strokes past the bearing I've been
And this ocean keeps pushing me out with the tide
I feel my cracks as they divide

Sold short and anguished
All the work worthwhile succumbed to a battle hardly won
Bloodshot and spaced out
You'll never listen never learn
Only teach me what I'll spurn

I once had dream
Passed through voids and parsed through numbers

Can someone tell me where I begin?

I'm swimming but I'm four strokes past the bearing I've been
And this ocean keeps pushing me out with the tide
I feel my cracks as they divide
Track Name: Astronaut
God is and astronaut
I could never see from so far up
You fill me up but sometimes you're just too much to bear
God is an astronaut
I could never hold you up

Every time I try I give too much
You just can't get enough
Of throwing it all in my face
You were never there
The way you said that you would always be
So keep it away from me

God is and astronaut
I could never see from so far up
You fill me up but sometimes you're just too much to bear
God is an astronaut
I could never hold you up

Can I begin again?

Get out of my head
Get out of my bed
Get out of my head

Every time I try I give too much
You just can't get enough
Of throwing it all in my face
You were never there
The way you said that you would always be
So keep it away from me

God is and astronaut
I could never see from so far up
You fill me up but sometimes you're just too much to bear
God is an astronaut
I could never hold you up

Can I begin again?
Track Name: Up in the Air
I've died a thousand times
I've killed a hundred too
I swallowed all the signs
And now I've paid my dues

Now ask how all it's gone
I say it's all alright
But there's no way it's true
I hope it might be soon
Track Name: A True Story that Seems Like a Lie
What if I said there was more to this than you could ever see?
Spinning blindly in the dark I pray that you'll just let me be
It doesn't matter anyway
You never hear a word I say

Turned around to see our backs all turned against the chilling sea
I leave no stone unturned but tides all churn against my sanity
And I am snowblind, seeding, stuck
Into the surf I'll cover up

Cast aloft to settle down
Battered by a furious sound
And in the waiting room I found
I've got more chance than just to drown

Play shy sun high
Never could let go
Long night starlight
Maybe just one more

It's times like these that make me wish that this was just a fantasy
It's times like these I wish that this was all a dream
It's just a dream
