Track Name: Lunar Transmission
Out in the backyard sits a chainsaw playground
For all to see
And watching
Looking out
There is an angel
Waiting patiently

The moon is fearless
Just before the sunrise
Where does the body go
When the soul dies

And if you choose to play
And juggle those rotating blades
I hope you know that you're still safe
And know that help's not far away
Cause that angel that awaits
Resides not up at Heaven's gate
But waits there inside your face
Ready to help if you just say

The moon is fearless
Just before the sunrise
Where does the body go
When the soul dies

If you notice the stars in the sky
And the way that they sometimes align
At least in your eyes
At least for tonight
Then you'll notice the same thing is true
Of the stars as it is for you
And that truth is the truth that you knew before
Anyone told you

The moon is fearless
Just before the sunrise
Where does the body go
When the soul dies
Track Name: The Forge
Have we forgotten
The trouble we went through to hear
The sound of the present
Are we not tending fields
The fact we made our beds up with new sheets
We no longer care that upheaval made us bleed
But not without you
I'll take this code
I'll change the world
I'll make it new

We burn like oil
By noon or midnight toil
As we fight this doom
This doom
And we do it for you
Our wills holds fast
Like shadows that we cast
As we fight this doom
This doom
And we do it for you

And I declare
The majority bankrupt
In matters of heart and soul they've
Let apathy string up
Their souls like puppets
Held high over chasms
As their eyes stare into the abyss
Those roses they spasm

Take this code
Make it fit
Or give yourself to it
Something that will use
Something that will use
Every ounce up of you
Then drown

We burn like oil
By noon or midnight toil
As we fight this doom
This doom
And we do it for you
Our wills holds fast
Like shadows that we cast
As we fight this doom
This doom
And we do it for you
Track Name: Boardwalk
I used to be
Used to be
Be your
Inanimate
Love letter to
Love letter to the world
Housed the steps
Of the hall to the edges
Edges of the shore
Housed the steps
Of the walk to the edge
Edges of the shore
Glance out once
Glance out twice
Remember glances passing in the night
Strangers pass who will never
Meet
Meet on these planks
Waves crash down
Washing hearts off this beach

And I used to be your
Cool night heatwave
Now I exist in memories
And picture frames
Don't tell me that I'm not like the waves
Crashing down
Oh
When I hit I will disperse all around

Now these doors
To the bars and the stores are closed
Like forgotten tombs
On this marina
Of capsized hope
Floating on
Like salt and
Echoes

And I used to be your
Cool night heatwave
Now I exist in memories
And picture frames
Don't tell me that I'm not like the waves
Crashing down
Oh
When I hit I will disperse all around

Can't ever take
Take this away
What has been
The back pocket is
Sewn shut

And I used to be your
Cool night heatwave
Now I exist in memories
And picture frames
Don't tell me that I'm not like the waves
Crashing down
Oh
When I hit I will disperse all around

No guarantee that this could be
Again
All might be lost until the end
I said
Right now is all that is
And in this moment sits
Everything that's been

I don't know if my old home is overgrown
With weeds and dusted to the core with neglect
As the glass that acted as my eyes for years
Is cracked and stained
Or boarded up to keep away
Those capable of of bringing me to life
Just one step is all I need to thrive
I'm capable of living life again
Just one step is all I need
Need to thrive
Track Name: Gone Home
Dear whoever
Dear me
Something needs addressed with everything
Everything and nothing at all
From the garden
To the fall
I take pride in
Broken bones

My best thoughts have been
Driven into chambers and
Chained to pavement
Beaten within
And inch of submission
But I won't fall
Fly my banner in the name of Love

With no ironic
Sense of separation
I've cultivated
Deliberate connection
To everything and nothing at all
From the garden
To the fall
I take pride in
Every scar

My best thoughts have been
Driven into chambers and
Chained to pavement
Beaten within
And inch of submission
But I won't fall
Fly my banner in the name of Love

From the first sensation of the waking day
To the bathroom mirror
And the spots along my face
Downstairs to watch the sun from the kitchen windows
While the water boils up
None of this needs my approval
Not one

Steam rises up from this cup
Of interwoven destinies
Again
As it always was
As it's always been

My best thoughts have been
Driven into chambers and
Chained to pavement
Beaten within
And inch of submission
But I won't fall
Fly my banner in the name of Love

Fly my banner in the name of Love
Track Name: The Beauty & The Doubt
Once upon a time I put my roots down in the ground
And swore I'd never move from here until the Earth opened
And swallowed me whole
Never shaking at the thought that I might be
Stuck here missing out
On everything that everybody out there misses
The beauty and the doubt

And I'm still around
I'll be here as the world
And all those changes come and go
Oh
No
It's no big surprise
I say this with a smile
And thank whatever for awhile

Once upon a time I looked a demon in the eye
I didn't say a word
Didn't run my mouth
Didn't run and hide
Never shaking at the thought that I might be
In over my head
I watched that monster watch his teeth fall out
And bow down

And I'm still around
I'll be here as the world
And all those changes come and go
Oh
No
It's no big surprise
I say this with a smile
And thank whatever for awhile

Yeah
It's just a matter of riding out the storm
Storm the frontlines
Line the battlefield with your presence
Present yourself as magical and ordinary
Ordinarily this kind of thing is somewhat scary
Somewhat blasphemous
Somewhat contrary
Contrary to the thought
That all this perseverance perseveres
When you least expect that it ought
Oughta come out swinging if you wanna lose
Lose the high ground that you've got
Gotta know to let yourself get caught
Caught's the best place that you can break on through
Thought you knew it all but you know you forgot
Forgot how to remember that you're never done

And I'm still around
I'll be here as the world
And all those changes come and go
No
It's no big surprise
I say this with a smile
And thank whatever for awhile

We can't run away
Now we are
We can't run away
Now we are here

We are alive
And we are here
