Track Name: Pages
Opened a book on the rugged beauty of the west
Watching the stills
Stuck on a panoramic river scene
Perched on the empty hills

I'm longing in the magazines
With pages of homes
It's like I've gathered made up memories
I've seen these floors before
A shared double bed is so far ahead

I'm not the type to stay down on the muddy ground
Even under fire I will look around
Because something good is to be found
Track Name: Song for the Sun
My task before the last few limbs of light point way beyond / The pitch black hills where the night is young and the air is crystal and cold / Is to balance out the colors in my mind and separate / The oil from the water with the pressures from the day

What I place under the handle or what I shake into the lock / Should lead me to my resting place / My solace and my rock
So I wait on sunny concrete by the grasses / Here until / I can offer more than the fractures in my skull up from this hill

Smell the pine
Sip the dew
There is a river of wine I will dissolve into

Now I'm not chasing anyone I'm just running to be hidden
The highway twists under the moon and turning back is forbidden
Then I should be enlightened sleeping in among the thistles
A roadside remedy for my comfort and my pride
Maybe I'll be awoken with a resurrected mind
Greeted by your open arms
I'll be all you find

Smell the pine
Sip the dew
There is a river of wine I will dissolve into
Track Name: All the Shy Will Congregate
A patch of crooked blades / Bouncing in a gust
I've risen from my maze / Just brushing off the dust
There are greener pastures / I've felt that rest within
Now I'm the only one filling up this crowded room

Hope will not be late
And all the shy will congregate

Loved ones gather 'round / Oh / They mean so well
Brother and sister you aren't to blame and I don't hold a candle
I'm laughing when I'm outside / Pensive through the open doors
Where I'm screaming underneath my skin and whispers coat the floors

Hope will not be late
And all the shy will congregate
Track Name: Bury
Dodging the cold that lifts from your tongue
On the terraces I'd smile more blank but more far than anyone
I'd bury my stones / Scattered all underneath the sun
One by one until they're gone

Pale and beautiful your cheeks go red
Well mine too / We're dead giveaways / We cannot hide our skin
A little focus shows a thread so thin
I will not chase this rosy love
It's a shallow sea I'm in

Warm in all my layers / The soil is breathing
What i've been told I'm not quite believing

Warm in all my layers / The grounds will moan
My strange behavior for every sunken stone
Track Name: Magnetic North
It is spinning deep within me
I am standing in it's way
I've got to eat / I've got to sleep
Where's a scent to drift on?

In the corner of my bed
I remember what you said
It echoes clearly in my head
and makes a way into my feather light rest

I will use what lies around
to scale mole hills no ones found
Bursting floor boards / Popping nails
They're sucking the wind away from the sails

In the corner of my bed
I remember what you said
It echoes clearly in my head
and makes a way into my feather light rest
Track Name: Let Me Be On My Side
Let me be on my side
Tomorrow I want to chase you like a child
I've got these bags under my eyes / I've been turning all night
Right beside my luminous window / The curtain thin and white
Any darkness out of sight

So roll me roll me over
And let me be on my side

I was a boy / I faced the door when I slept
Yeah I let me be on my side
I had an old bowling pin that I kept
Just incase
Because fear keeps my wits about / The smarts I never had
I wouldn't want to end up feeling bad

So roll me roll me over
And let me be on my side

Things are running smooth these days
So let me be on my side
All my high hopes move like waves I can't predict and I cannot ride
But I am older now / I beat my pillow in my sleep
Some dreams I've got to keep

So roll me roll me over
Bring down the walls
Burn the blinds
So I can be on my side
Track Name: Good Arvo
Put your feet up / I'll do the swingin'
We can stop when your head starts spinnin'

Ripples in the pool
Rattling the sky
Ginger beer and pepper
A distant sleeping tide

My head / My beating heart
Know where to go
The rain dilutes my blood
I let it follow

The rules the rules
A drawer of broken tools
To question the glue / Holding through / Is understandable

What a place to know

Wake up
It's the rush
Be ready
Wake up
Track Name: Peace in My Chest
I was just washing my hands and for a split second there was peace in my chest
I had my fingers under the tap and for a split second there it was
Deep in my chest
It shone like gold / Brought down on a twirling path / Coming from the vicious half
The spinning cells of a storm

I know the truth
I know what's right
No need to fret
Or lose rest

That love dove was pirouetting above me / A silhouette in a sun beam
But that's nothing new and that's the way it was meant to be
As I stood trusting in my every thought / Forgetting all that I had been
taught
It arrived fresh with the water
Now drying on my hand

It said
I know the truth
I know what's right
No need to fret
No need to worry
I'll know it's you
I'll know the time
There'll be no story
There will be no story
Track Name: Swims Alone
I used to go for swims alone
Lord would follow me towards the sea
Where branches knitted their shadows in the sand
And water lapped around my hands

I used to go for walks alone
Lord would follow fast along the path
I'd leave my money in my wallet / In the car
I never really went that far
I never really went that far

You are dealing with a worried man
Who's clinging on to all his plans

When I'd go and work alone
Jobs were given / Left / Then thrown
Drifting towards a summer flame
You make the team / You play the game
I'm just a moth amidst the pouring rain

You are dealing with a worried man
Who's clinging on to all his plans
It's a blessing and it's a spell
And It's no place to love you well
