Track Name: Cicada
Listen for the echo of the solitary voice inside you,
Hoping that all that you have is all it's needing to live up to.
Visualizing what it must have been like to be nearer to it,
Focused on the sentimental feelings that you never wanted.

A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.
A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.

I know that time and time again, you'll dig a hole and sit inside it,
Letting comfort play pretend while trying not to get excited.
Force all of the dirt out of the way and push it all behind you.
Lift your face out up into the sun and let the daylight blind you.

A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.
A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.

With just a little bit of your love,
We can reunite all the world you once knew.
With just a little bit of your life,
We can reignite all the courage to pull through.

A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.
A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.

A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.
A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life.
Track Name: Of Paint And Poly
I believe I can see it's over in your eyes...
I believe I can see it's over in your eyes...
I believe I can see it in your eyes,
It's over,
It's over,
I can see it's over in your eyes...

It's over...
I believe...
Track Name: Black Ice (If I Blink, I'll Trip, Fall, and Crack My Chin Open)
I'm running high,
And running blind
A gravel road,
And now, black ice

Running sounds like
Your style, not mine
But not tonight

I've lost my legs,
I've lost my eyes
I cannot live,
I cannot die
Track Name: Pearl (Living Underwater)
I want to live underwater
I want to sleep in the deep
I want to feel the resistance
The pressure of the sea

Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah

When living underwater, I can clear out my ears
And disregard the noises that I'd rather not hear
A blissful solitude will be nearer when I'm living underwater

I'm gonna breathe in the ocean
I'm gonna ride the waves
Forever building emotion
I think I'm gonna stay

Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah

And, over time, the pressure will be too much for my head
The force on my brain will turn it into a pearl instead,
And the rhythm of the ocean will preserve my every thought
Forever and ever, I'll be living underwater

Underwater
Underwater
Underwater
Underwater

Living underwater
Living underwater
Living underwater

Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah'ooo
Ah-ah
Track Name: Wave Organ (Still Running)
Still running...
Track Name: Out The Window (Into The Wood)
Punchin' in, yet again
Break of dawn, I sneak a yawn
A new friend, pretend
Lend an ear, and disappear

Sit alone, eat alone
On your own, you scream and moan
To get by, to wonder why
You wanna die, and can't deny it

I look at myself and see a selfish me
Breakin' glass up against the wall, and
Cut myself as I try to crawl

How can I compete this way, and
How can I defeat this day?
How am I supposed to be brave, and
How am I supposed to behave?

I see myself out the window again, and
I go along as we play pretend, and
The right and wrong that we comprehend, and
A state of mind that you must defend

I realize that you're on your own
I realize that you've lose your home, and
I empathize with your scream and moan, so
Recognize that you're not alone

I wonder when and I think of why
I wandered into a guilty mind
I had a friend who was left behind
I think of when and I wonder why

I wish you a better life, and
I wish you a better time, and
I wish you to come alive, and
I wish you a better right hand

On your own, scream and moan
A state of mind that you must defend
I say goodbye to my friend, pretend
Track Name: Fear/Picture Myself
..and I picture myself in love
..and I picture myself happy
..and I picture myself alive

I'm afraid I could be alone
For the rest of my days
With no one to call my own

I'm afraid I could fall in love
And get drifted away
Forget what I'm dreaming of

I'm afraid to feel alive
I'm afraid of fear itself
I'm afraid I'm gonna die

So, I picture myself in love
And I picture myself happy
And I picture myself alive

..and I picture myself in love
..and I picture myself happy
..and I picture myself alive
Track Name: Ergonomic
Do you see what I see inside of you?
Do you know what I know? All others too?
Can you feel what I feel? Emotion. Emotion.
Do you see what I see inside of you?

And you're wondering why
All that was said to you was, "It's over."
Keep good faith in your muse,
All the things that you choose,
And it's never over


Listen for the echo of the solitary voice inside you..

A little bit of your love,
A little bit of your life
