Track Name: Evergreen
I remember sleeping
I couldn't hear you counting on me
Could I take just one more breath?
Could you give me just one more test of my manliness?
She said, "I'm not so sure I can."

Well, it really felt to me like
An ordinary kinda you-and-me night
And to this day I might feel the same
It was just the two of us
Was it Killarney or Algonquin Park?
It sure as hell wasn't Downtown

We'd always had our problems
And all the times that we hit rock bottom
There are some things we can't understand

But there was nothing preparing me
For the brief and understandable rarity
That would turn our peace right upside down

And now all that's left is the sound of trees
And now all we have is complacency
I focus my energy on different things
Understanding passivity

Was there something that bothered me
About the unremarkable property
There's a couple of maples, but mostly evergreens
But getting back to the task at hand
You're standing there in your faded tan
Telling me again for the thousandth time

And now all that's left is the sound of trees
And now all we have is complacency
I focus my energy on different things
Understanding passivity
Track Name: Give & Take
I had a dream I couldn't stop you
We'd never make it anyway
You said I never cease to shock you
It's just my electricity

If all you're gonna do is talk to
Everyone in here but me
Far from me be it to inhibit
Your individuality

Well I know
We can't all be you
And I'm sure
I'm losing myself
Someone, help me please

I'm on a mission to discover
All the secrets deep within
I couldn't help but be a bother
What could I do but let you win?

If something dark should get inside you
Please don't let the light go out
If there's one thing that I can't imagine
It's you living with a sense of doubt

Well I know
We can't all be you
And I'm sure
I'm losing myself
Someone, help me please

I couldn't be the one for you
You'll never be the one for me
But I'd give it all just to restore you
If I got the opportunity

I am only a man
And I'll do everything I can
Track Name: Grounded
Mistake the wrong for the right
Made up my mind to decide
You know me better
Know me better than I know you
Know me better than I know myself

Everyone can see me for who I am

Can't tell if I'm on the ground
I flew too high and I feel myself coming down
Coming down to the bottom
Coming down to the bottom
To the place I know that I belong

Everyone can see me for who I am

I'll never let you be part of my problems
Anymore
If you're not around, you're not gonna bring me down
I'm getting used to feeling like something
Now you're gonna be nothing to me
Just like I was
Nothing to you
Track Name: Disasters
Keep telling myself something don't feel right
Then again I was never good at taking my own advice

In your eyes, there's a storm that's brewing now
I want to be prepared but I just can't seem to get everything tied down

We're living disasters, naturally
And now I'm
Finding it hard to get some relief

Understand there's things you can never know
Wanting something so bad is never gonna make it so
Late nights lead to early warnings,
Where circumstantial circumventions
Are all that's left of my best intentions

We're living disasters, naturally
And now I'm
Finding it hard to get some relief
Was it never enough to just let me be?
Oh, let me be free
Everything comes back eventually
Track Name: Animals
Said her name was Dolores
When I found her sleeping in the forest
Enjoyed the welcome distraction
Speaking without vocal interaction

She came without a word of warning
Waited only for the morning
So right were all the lies she told me
Uptight, wanted to control me

Am I supposed to live
Just like an animal?
Gave up on myself
Far too easily
Is there something wrong
With holding me accountable?
Well it won't be long...

Silent was all my voice of protest
Those words were spoken from experience
Clouded my reason and my vision
Lost all of my women's intuition

Gave myself over to a master
Wanted something easier and faster
Needed the feeling of approval
But now she's playing with no rules

Am I supposed to live
Just like an animal?
Gave up on myself
Far too easily
Is there something wrong
With holding me accountable?
Well it won't be long...
Track Name: Places
I know
This is getting old
Can't be told
I just need to see all the changes unfold

Oh, where I've been
And all that I've seen
I can't be the one to...

You're wild
You are the strangest child
And I know it's not a great divide
But it's close enough to let me slide

Oh, where I've been
And all that I've seen
I can't be the one to...
Track Name: Oblivious
I can't be myself
When I'm with you
I'm just not the same
We're much better apart
Than when we're together
Cause I don't know myself

We're doing something
That I can't figure out, I'm
Oblivious
We're going nowhere
And I think I'm passing you, I'm
Oblivious

It's just like before
Out of my hands
Lost all my control
Could be time for a change
Time to move on
I could start over

We're doing something
That I can't figure out, I'm
Oblivious
We're going nowhere
And I think I'm passing you, I'm
Oblivious

Does it bother you
Or can you sit by
And watch it blow over

Something's happening here
That I'll never understand, I'm
Oblivious
If it's right or wrong
Nothing's gonna change my mind, I'm
Oblivious
Track Name: Lost
For everything you didn't do
For everything you didn't say
For every thought that slipped
Into the back of your mind
Never to see the light of day

For every truth you never told
Every injustice you uphold
Every lie that you abide
While you're swallowing your pride
Oh, all the diamonds turned to coal

I'll never speak of you
To anyone

And if they are lost upon you
My words have meant something to me
There is nothing I can change
You're always part of me that way
Screaming at me silently

For everything you didn't do
For everything you didn't say
You'll be following along
Reminding me what's right and wrong
But I'll be rid of you someday

I'll never speak of you
To anyone

...I'd be lost without you
