Track Name: Western Mile
so were we mesmerized
on our way to the top of the pile?
working for a better life
hey, these days that’s a western lie

and lately the shine is gone
well where do you expect it from?
like a moth to a neon call
convinced it’s a rising sun


this turning money into stuff
we didn’t need a quarter of
somehow having way too much
oh it never seems like it’s enough
are we frozen, fear of chains
the stepping stones we didn’t take
we'll never learn to step away
if we don’t learn from our mistakes

are you satisfied?
not by a western mile
gotta show the right veneer
on the animal inside

and if we quit asking why
at best we’re barely blind
hot fish to the shimmering light
too late with the rising tide
and it kinda sounds like….
Track Name: Summer Comfort
you were a light
kept me out of the dark
a high point in my life
but you were lifting me up
remembering the times
when we couldn’t get enough
you let me be someone
someone I never was
with anyone else at all

would you come back
and be right here
if I’m right here
would I go back
would I go back
if you were right there
I’ll never put my finger on it

come back
would you come back
if I was right here?
would i go back
would i go bad
if you were right there
bringing your summer comfort?

must have been a potion
I drank you like a storm
and you were an anchor
I wasn’t a prisoner long
and maybe it’s the time
I can't remember the signs
the reason your winter
never ran into mine

in terms of us now
you know I only wish you well
in terms of what it was
I hope you kept a version of us
in the corner of your mind
somewhere clear of all the noise
closing your eyes
steal an echo of me from behind

come back
would you come back
and be right here?
bringing your summer comfort?
go back
would I go back
and be right there
I’ll never put my finger on it

come back
would you come back
and be right here
bringing your summer comfort?
go back
would I go bad
and be right there
bringing your summer comfort
breathing your summer comfort
Track Name: Rubberbands
I get as far up as I can
but baby I'm a rubberband
get as far as up as can
I'll be coming back again
I take it as far up as I can
baby I'm a rubberband
get as far up as I can
but i'll be coming

I believe
I believe you want to do the right thing
but I believe
I believe
you'll only do the right thing sometimes
can't you see
oh can't you see the gravity that's riding
that one day you'll run out of lightning
when you leave this easter island

so get as far up as you can
baby your a rubberband
so get as far up as you can
you'll be coming back again
so take it as far out as you can
but baby we're all rubber bands
we'll get as far up as we can
we'll be coming back

I believe
I believe you want to do the right thing
but I believe
I believe
you'll only do the right thing sometimes
can't you see
oh can't you see the gravity that's riding
that one day you'll run out of lightning
when you leave this easter island
Track Name: Correct Incorrect
sick.
so sick of these physics
and going from a good foot
to the back of the deep end
and you could read it on her lips
before you ever heard the sound
correct incorrect

I should shut my mouth
That's my only one way to
end with a magic trick
that will gracefully let you down
you'll know it when it came and went
because when it comes and goes
it'll get to you

tired
keep on stoking that fire
we all grow up
that means this isn't forever
you could hear what she'd say
before she ever made a sound
correct or incorrect

I should shut my mouth
when I've only one wing to
land with the magic trick
that will gracefully let you down
you'll know it when it came and went
because when it comes and goes

it'll get to you
I will get to you
when you least expect it
