Track Name: Angel Show
a sound of gulls
I hear, I say
the sound in halls
echo's space
the sound resolves
you hear in rays
the sound it calls
echo's space

let us rot
in final form
you let us drop
then and before
Let us rot
our final form
you let us drop
then and before

I have to wonder how
in an age of heart
we're often lesser found
blessed in age and heart

often wonder how
in an age of heart
we're often lesser found
blessed in age and heart

try not to worry my angel show
try not to wonder, try not to wonder
try not to worry my angel show and try not to wonder it's all they’ve known
try not to worry my angel show and try not to wonder it's all they’ve known

I often wonder how
in an age of heart
often lesser found
blessed in age and heart
Track Name: End This
he wakes up from terrible night plains
a picture hung inside his endless race
he eats up the remedy for the days
winter comes, the humans hibernate
when they're done they'll run and sing for rain
when they're young they see the bright in the saints
times get rough, they won't discern by age
in a rut, we hope the office has cake

who's got guts to tell it like it is?

she wakes up from terrible night plains
a picture hung inside Her endless race
she drinks up her remedies for the days
winter comes, the humans hibernate
when they're done they'll run and sing for rain
when they're young they see the bright in the saints
times get rough, they won't discern by age
in a rut, we hope they all give us cake

who's got guts to tell it like it is?

pain is great, when they can sing it in the rain
Track Name: Birdwell Brothers
I need the darkness
where I can toil
where all I arrange feels lazy

the fall is harmless
all I read
led the common lost in praising

so sorry we’re not, boys of the sun

and you always arise according to a favor

I need the darkness, sun and soil
to find all my elegant phrases

My friends are harmless
when we'd play
keeper of stars and ancients

so sorry we're not, boys on the run
felt pushed to sing uncaged in flames be magnificent as we fall
the timeless song of us all

and you’ll always arise according to a favor
and the darkest of lies, what the darkness cares to wager

someday we can all wake up and laugh off every war we’ve had.
jeff and jon (the old scout pack). lets set the example for the rest.
let's laugh off every war we had. keep the sun rise best we can
let’s set the example for the rest. we can do it for the old scout pack

I need the darkness, sun and soil,
cause all I love feels lazy
the fall is harmless
when we’d play
keeper of stars and ancients
Track Name: Glorified
had I been wasting, all of my strength
you're a good soul but so far you're the end of all my days
whats covered and colored and it leads to an empty state
keeps us pulling at the corners legions spreading thin, why? we waste.

this can only wash away and signify what they need
remember facing there? that church we saw in the east?
this can only wash away, I touch the lost part of the faith
the fires that can reduce stone, we'll hear the whole city moan

I don't even care what it is you're running from
I don't even care to run myself at all
I was taught the song of lost, the wrong child sang
I don't even see you run at all

this will all come down may you all be glorified
Track Name: Hallelujah (You and I)
it's like a flash, how you and I
we arrive at a stage of letting go

whats with the hate? whats all the rage these days?
I've always hated all of my fame

I’m nailed to my stage. while women weep
hallelujah to the skies. hallelujah you and I

are the kids bored, while women weep
or alive and well the way we hide

but we're all late and time was free
so find rest, find change, find you and me

I’m dressed in my suit, while women weep
hallelujah to my pride, hallelujah to my pride

nailed in disdain, let his mother weep
hallelujah to this Guy, hallelujah to the Guy
hallelujah to the skies hallelujah to the skies
Track Name: The Old Way
I wrote down your holy words as any servant would
I put away the books that say our ancient faith is good
the earth is for miles, it is for miles and round again
but our lords eternal oh how his heavens are without end

but oh God I'd change into dust
Ill return from whence Ive come
oh God I’d change into ash I'd be moved by the winds that pass
but when I land…

I wrote down you holy words like any good son would
the bells of your house ring out they're ring as they should
the sun is for miles it burns for miles and miles again
but our lords eternal oh how his glory burns without end

but oh God I'd change into dust
Ill return from whence Ive come
oh God Id change into ash I'd be moved by the winds that pass
but when I land, is it with you? do I dwell with you my lord
Track Name: Two Sided Nation
are you cold when they had clothes
I walked broken beyond my bones
and They're saying an empty psalm
It only tells me, I never mattered

Life's got valleys, go with your gut
endless parties, the days dragged on
highschool horror, hichschool was dumb
tell the devil it never mattered

they chose money and I chose prayer
in the east-lands we found you cared
it’s your awkward and empty stare
where you told me that nothing matters

then I gave you all that I had
and there's still weight upon my back
not what I’ve wanted, just what I have
Tell myself it will not matter

life's got valleys, go with your gut
birthday parties, the day was young
highschool glory, hichschool was fun
tell the champions it never mattered

and the free lands still raising flags
keep us running, the iron hand
find a ritual, take nothing back
until we find out we never mattered

may we all bend the knee to the two sided nation
may we all rest easy and ignore our convictions
and we'll learn, we do not matter

I was cold you gave me clothes
had no comfort you gave me some
I read old psalms, and prayed alone
with a smile I do not matter
Track Name: Wave Upon Wave
[ ]
Track Name: Swim In Circles
I called you my brothers
I called you my friends
before I laid me down

Your bodies swam in circles
your nets they came up dry
every time

we were meant to need each other
you can call me your own
even when your soul feels dry

still they cut your throats
still they break your bones
still they burned your thrones
but they did it to me first
they did it to me first
they'll go and do their worst
and still they cut your throats
still they break your bones
still they burned your thrones
but they did it to me first
they did it to me first
they'll go and do their worst
and still they cut your throats
