Track Name: Douse the Lights
Let’s not close our eyes
Right away
Maybe if we just lay here then
We’ll both find a way to stay awake

Let’s not open our eyes
Today
Maybe if it stays nice and dark inside
We won’t have to take it away

Words we stole and used
Have come back hauntingly
We freeze to let light through
It leaves us wanting nothing but sleep

But sun and sky remain
They put us in our place
When it hurts to stand and find our feet
We know to cast the line out

Glancing over shoulders
Gets us only older
Let’s be glad it didn’t last

Time has come to lock up
Douse the lights and walk out
I won’t forget the time we had
Track Name: The Worm Has Turned
Forget the name
Forget the face
Forget the place
You used to love

Clean break, clean slate
Wipe it away
Every last trace
You’re tired of

Start over today
Outgrow yesterday
All along the way
You think you grow but don’t

Nothing weighs you down
Your green season
Never wanes or pales into reason
Words work little wonders of treason
There’s no use in listening

Turning, turning over
Much too much to shoulder
Barely alive
We carry it lightly
Turning, turning over
Slow, we’re going nowhere

Stop from turning over
On your feet, soldier
Track Name: Darkroom
On our best behavior for our hour after hour chatter
Different conversation, same old awkward feeling, always laughter
Root and branch are binding
Hunting on your own isn’t finding, so it goes

Take the wheel and lead the way
I want something but don’t know how to say it
We’re too late to know this place, it’s too early for you to relate
The least way out is familiar
Other times I’ve come this way I made the same mistake by buying time, so I know

Like a ghost I just enter
But my pulse pounds like a hammer
Splitting rails frozen to the center

I don’t live here anymore
Don’t have me over
Track Name: Time Already Served
This stuck with me all these fucking years and so did you
Easy to play, easy to lose
Thank you for the time already served, thank you
For having what it took to see me through

Thank you
For standing by me
That cold November day
When dead and buried were
My head and heart but we
Were always smiling
Not lying, but to see
The end and the beginning bravely

This stuck with me all these fucking years and so did you
Easy to play, easy to lose
Thank you for the time already served, thank you
For having what it took to see me through
