Track Name: Outlines
Don't go, he told her
She was gone

Sometimes we like to trace outlines
Sometimes we measure the space between our fingers
Sometimes we have to go
Sometimes we have to go
Track Name: Dig It
I felt the sweat roll down my back
The way soft-shell crabs slide down my throat
As their pincers grabbed by tongue
She looked me in the eye and simply asked
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?

I tapped my toes
That’s how the rhythm goes
And I knew something well
Your smile says it all
So now I feel my soul’s alive
Maybe there’s one thing left
And I can dig it
But can you dig it?

I fell
I fell
I fell
Dig it
Track Name: Until We Move
I admire you
A starry eyed sunrise
Our tall tiptoed stances touch the sky
The way we tickle ivories
I am blended like soft tree tops
My breeze swept voice stopped
I have tied my heartstrings to parachutes
In hopes that it falls into your hands

Until we move in perfect synthesis
Until we move in perfect synthesis

You know who I am
You know of my hands and how they've grown
But you oh you do not know who I am
I stand here like a tidal wave
Oh the oceans they push and pull
I push and pull
I push and pull and push and pull

Until we move in perfect synthesis
Until we move in perfect synthesis

Play for me and I will dance
Dance for me and I will sing

Until we move in perfect synthesis
Until we move in perfect synthesis
Until we move in perfect synthesis
Until we move in perfect synthesis
Track Name: Static Electricity
I found icicles hanging off your eyelids
They drew several lightning bolts around my lungs
When they first met me
When I first met you I felt something
I felt important
I felt important like static electricity

I found roots growing from my fingers and toes
I became grounded
I became solid
For once in my life

There’s an imbalance
An imbalance between us
You’re a balloon
I am static
No one wants it too close
I am getting too close

I found icicles once
They have melted into your hands
Let me drink
I am thirsty
You are gone

(Oh where did you go?)

I found branches growing from my forehead
Someone’s climbed them
Let them down
It is too high
You’re too high
You’re too high
You’re too high
You’re too high
Track Name: Don't Close Your Eyes
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t fall asleep
Don’t turn your back on me

I still think about how things used to be
And the good and the bad and the bad and the worse
And there are things left to rehearse until we speak
So don’t close your eyes on me

Maybe (maybe)
What if? (what if?)
Baby (baby)
Don’t worry about it

Don’t close your eyes
Don’t fall asleep
Don’t turn your back on me

Sometimes I think I can change things

Baby
I'm definitely sorry

But don’t close your eyes
(Don’t close your eyes)
Don’t turn your back
(Don’t turn your back)
Let’s keep in contact
Track Name: Take Arms (A Song for Those Left Behind)
Take arms but leave me the fingers
Something to touch
Bumps along the splinters
Everything
Cabin fires
The first shots

Stop taking the things that I love
Oh no
Oh no
Please go
Let's make a deal
Let's make a deal

Stop taking the things that I love
The first shots
Cabin fires
Everything
Bumps along the splinters
Something to touch
Something to touch
Take arms but leave me the fingers

Now where can I go?
You've left me behind so
Where can I go?
I'm left behind

Please go
Oh no

You kissed my old scars
And made new ones with your teeth
I, I
I cannot deal
(Take arms but leave me the fingers)
I cannot deal
I cannot deal
(Something to touch, bumps along the splinters)
I cannot deal
I cannot...
Track Name: Human Condition
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
(Come on!)

Lose yourself within wooded weeded land
Upright stand!
Underneath the foliage
Green sheets
Cut down by our limbs and feet
To help each other
Move up and move on
Let's move up and move on

'Cuz we are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
Ha!

Without purpose petulance or prayer
Just stare!
Watch yourself evolve with me
Dissolve with me into the Earth
Rip away
Rip away
Let's rip away everything on our skin from the day

'Cuz we are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the

We are human, all just human (x6)

(We are human, all just human) (x4)
We are learning
Leaning towards the sun
We are growing
Everyone
Trace the circles on our skin
I think I found a new one

'Cuz we are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
We are all living in the
We are all living in the human condition
We are all living in the
Ha!
Track Name: The Fire on the Beach
The fire on the beach
Made the sun look at peace
We cowered with blankets
Draped over our bodies
And spoke
Through smoke
Signals
Signals

Teach me to lay bare
Where the tide takes the flames
I will teach you to not care
The heat
Destroys
Shame
Shame

We stood upright
Our hearts filled with light
We stood upright
Our hearts filled with light
With light

The fire on the beach
Made the sun look at peace
Where the tide takes the flames
We destroyed all our shame
We stood
We stood
Upright
Upright

And when we spoke
The ashes fell off our lips
And when we spoke
The ashes fell off our lips
Track Name: Sunshine
"We must leave this terrifying place tomorrow and go searching for sunshine. " ( — F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise)

(Run)

The sunshine, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine
Let it run, let it run, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine

It ran down my face and laid itself beside me

The sunshine, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine
Let it run, let it run, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine

I held its heart, a warm embrace not lost from us
Anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore, anymore, nevermore

And when I look up I feel as if I'm free
Of all things you once threw
It evaporates off of me
And when I look up I know that I'm free
I am free, I am free, I am free, I am free, I am free to just be

The sunshine, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine
Let it run, let it run, the sunshine, the sun, the sunshine

(Run)
