Track Name: Airshows
Those sun drenched days inside our happy home I do miss
Bundled up in red and blue we'd set out and we'd run in

Those sun drenched days inside our happy home I do miss
Bundled up in red and blue we'd set out and we'd run in

Faces cold hands all wet
Battles outside and wars within
Faces cold hands all wet

Can't believe it's been so long
Twenty years have come and gone
Memories and I break down
When people change we fell apart

Airshows don't do it for me
Flying machines made for killing dreams

Airshows don't do it for me
Lined up on the flight line

A distraction for the meantime

Now we've all grown all grown up all moved out
I try not to think - thing about, how things might have turned up
My eyes start to burn snowflakes and memories
They sting and then melt away
Leaving us frozen unable to move
Til the spring when we thaw
Flowers grow where we stood

And I lift her up with my legs
And fly her like an aeroplane
Across the sea and to a place
Where it's the same and no one's apart

Airshows don't do it for me
Flying machines made for killing dreams

Airshows don't do it for me
Lined up on the flight line
Track Name: 25 Sailboats
25 tiny sailboats in my head
I can feel the wind blowing - it's her breath
Pushing these sails they move us
Destination is unknown

Another one pass behind my eyes
I can see us sitting inside a silver boat
Cutting across the western states

I must admit that a thought crossed my mind
That you'd be so perfect to laugh and to cry with
But I'd better keep driving

Now water makes way for wildflower peaks
We navigate through the thoughts
They try to overturn us
We move with speed they pass right by unfelt

I never though, we never thought
That there was anything like this
And all the time I just keep on driving

I must admit that a thought crossed my mind
That you'd be so perfect to laugh and to cry with
But I'd better keep driving
Driving home out of the sun
We'll deal with this don't have have to run

You'll be so perfect to laugh and to cry with
But I better keep driving
I feel like I could explode
Do you think that we could explode

We'll drop our anchor and raise our flag
Track Name: The Tides
The tides roll in
The tides roll out
Some left behind
Some torn apart

Well I don't want to leave this place
But I think that I probably should
And she takes me by the hand

We didn't mean to hurt you
Not trying to explain cause I forgot the rules

The tides roll in
The clouds roll out
Some left behind
Some torn apart

Well I don't want to leave this place
But I think that I probably should
And she takes me by the hand

We didn't mean to hurt you
Not trying to explain cause I forgot the rules

We didn't mean to hurt you
Not trying to explain cause I forgot the rules

(guitar solo, claps and scat outro)
Track Name: My Mayflower
Never felt I had a place to stay
Three more years and it's time to move away
And when the trucks come along we'll being dancing with our new song

My Mayflower pack away this home we've made
But take care with this little boy
He's a fragile thing and you know he must be

Terrified, I should be terrified
I should be terrified
All the mistakes of the past
Not to mention Mom and Dad

Better make friends so you can say goodbye
There's nothing sadder than a soul with no reason to cry
And when the trucks come along we'll being dancing with our new song

My Mayflower pack away this home we've made
But take care with this little boy
He's a fragile thing and you know he must be

I've been waiting a long long time
For a landmark to help me find
I've been waiting for this and you know I should be

Terrified, I should be terrified
I should be terrified
All the mistakes of the past
Not to mention Mom and Dad

Whoa

Terrified, I should be terrified
I should be terrified
All the mistakes of the past
Not to mention Mom and Dad

Terrified, I should be terrified
But I'm not
Track Name: The Sum of Our Parts
Our lives
They are falling from our hands
We try to make it work
But it won't happen

I made this hole to show you that I care
Bruised vocal chords frozen by your stare
My lover, why do we do it
The cats and the kids they're all terrified of love

Held hostage please tell them that you care
Cold steel with stop the thoughts I just can't bear
I know it, I know that you'll take it
I'm sorry, just give it one more day

And you really know I love you
I've just had it so damn hard
Our parents, they were so reckless
Self centered explosions of apathy and loss

And we pick up all the pieces and try to make our own
But we found that it's not that easy
We learn from examples and this is all we have

Our lives
They are falling from our hands
We try to make it work
But it won't happen

And you really know I love you
I've just had it so damn hard
Our parents, they were so reckless
Self centered explosions of apathy and loss

And we pick up all the pieces and try to make our own
But godammit, it's not that easy

It's a hurricane and I'm stuck in the middle
Life and love, they spin me around

Sometimes I get so dizzy
Track Name: 10,000 ft.
That night I had a dream
Remembering everything
You were a tree and I climbed right up in it
To the top, knew it was a beginning

And I woke to a starlight sky

The next night was different
Born in a thunderhead
The bottom dropped out and the ground rushed up at me
I was scared you were dancing and caught me

Thought I'd land in a puddle for sure
Impact - some filthy floor
You and me, North and South

Simple and elegant, that's the way it is
Like lightning and rain, that tree on a plane
The stars marching while we lay

When I saw them move a bit
I knew this is what it meant
I might never be happier, or lonelier

Queensize was far too large
At least in the morning light
Friends they don't kiss
They just stay within boundaries
Sighs do the talking
Saying what we'd like to say

Down on the waterfront
The barges pass us by
I had a test on this very same painting
We'll I just can't can't think straight from 10,000 ft.

Thought I'd land in a puddle for sure
Impact - some filthy floor
You and me, North and South

Simple and elegant, that's the way it is
Like lightning and rain, that tree on a plane
The stars marching while we lay
Track Name: Invasion
They floated down with rays on silver wings
Strike force one they were sent to pacify us all
They killed most the folks we knew
With their rays of cold white light and they placed us in the zoo

A meager meal was served twice every day
While on a break from our forced labor
We did their dirty laundry

A stroke of luck, I see her every day
We had plans before
They turned them on their end
We had to suspend
The prime of our life
You know things didn't go quite right

Keep thinking
We'll locate a plan
She said we should keep loving
No we won't stop that

The guards they overheard
Now I'm working nights

Hatching plans
A desperate man
To poison their bedsheets
It was my only plan
But they caught wind of my scheme
Judge was lenient that day
I received no dinner tray

Years passed by till snow it never left
An age of ice
We never aged a day
While they suntanned in the bay
Where their summer homes where made
And their purple children played

Keep thinking
We'll locate a plan
She said we should keep loving
No we won't stop that
Then we spilled out on the streets
We kissed for the first time in three thousand years (and electric kiss)
They won't be missed
We'll die in bliss
Track Name: Sunday
It happened like an April bloom in the winter time
Green these fields
Cast off this frost
It sprang to life

It happened
Don't know what it did
But I'm different now
This mercy kill
This falling tree
He was crushed by it's weight
I came out and he was OK

And Sunday I'll be lost
Lost if I had to let go
I would welcome a new snow
Where it would drift around my house
Where I'd stay alone
If I had to let go
Ice crystals on eyelashes
No keys all latches
All I see is frost

I'll be lost
Sunday I'll be lost
Lost if I had to let go
I'd welcome a new snow
Where it would drift around my house
Where I'd stay alone
If I had to let go
Ice crystals on eyelashes
No keys all latches
All I see is frost
If I had to let go
I'd welcome a new snow...

Sunday I'll be lost
Track Name: Faultlines
You can say it is
You can leave it out
It's not the way thought it was
Resist or you'll end up in a cage

You can leave it out
Take your time and weight the good and bad of it
Cause concentration comes so hard these days

Aching heads break down
A broken heart infects and attracts the same type
But beats another month another day
For beautiful moments to make it all worthwhile

We test the faultlines
We tremble inside
Every other day one less tear shed
Every single weed cut and thrown out
So far beyond our house

The smell of burning trash
The smoke's a signal fire
Our leaves are now the trash
We always knew

You can say it is
You can leave it out
It's not the way thought it was
Resist or you'll end up in a cage

You can leave it out
Take your time and weight the good and bad of it
Cause concentration comes so hard these days


Aching heads break down
A broken heart infects and attracts the same type
But beats another month another day
For beautiful moments to make it all worthwhile

We test the faultlines
We tremble inside
Every other day one less tear shed
Every single weed cut and thrown out
So far beyond our house
