Track Name: Climate Change
I can't help but feel that I'm losing
this battle, it's far to confusing
well heads up looks like we are surrounded
crashed down and now I am grounded

but don't panic this is far from over
I'll carry you back on my shoulders
when this world starts refusing to make sense
there's only one thing that makes a difference

the clock's ticking but I"m moving backwards
something's missing, does it even matter?
the future's never quite how we planned it
I realize yet I hardly can stand it

I"ll hold on to whatever is near me
til this clouds gone and I can see clearly
pull me up when my heads going under
I wake up to the sound of the thunder

do we even know
where this all goes?

give it some time and you'll get there
just close your eyes and breathe in air
just give it time, it gets better
it comes with a change in the weather

let's fast-forward til somebody finds us
a leap towards whatever will bind us
time's moving but we're moving faster
eyes peeled for the coming disaster

the wind's changing and it's getting colder
another season, another year older
I guess that this is all it requires
a temperature drop to bring up the fire

and when it's my turn
I'll see it all burn
cos if there's one thing I've learned
it's to abandon all concern

give it some time and you'll get there
just close your eyes and breathe in air
just give it time, it gets better
it comes with a change in the weather

I'm holding out for a silver lining
this is not our war it's just bad timing
and all these problems and revelations
no way to stop 'em until our days end

just give it time it gets better
just give it time it gets better
Track Name: The Underdog
you never cease to fail because you're chasing your own tail
there's nothing at the finish line when you get there
something inside you whines because you're running out of time
and everyone is gone but you are stuck here

and something's wrong
it's been too long
and you can't hold this inside anymore
anymore

there's not much you can say when you're locked inside a cage
the sun is out but you can't see it
do everything you can to make them understand
you can't control a fire, you have to free it

and something's wrong
it's been so long
you question everything you know
but don't think twice
it's bad advice
your instincts will take you where you want to go

so take these chances as they come
soak in the light until your numb
there's never not an open door
what are you waiting for?
Track Name: Rain Song
I won't close my eyes
there's no need for a surprise
the lightening will strike
if it chooses to

I won't say a word
there's no need to sound absurd
these things go unheard
cos I want them to

I'm under your spell
but I'm trapped in this shell
I hope you can't tell that I'm going insane
when I welcome the rain

on top of your care
the storm rolls in from afar
but we're safe where we are
we won't feel a thing

and I wanted to say
that you make the sky bright as day
a symphony of grey
when I heard you sing

I'm under your spell
but I"m trapped in this shell
I hope you can tell that I don't mind the pain
and so bring on the rain

bring on the rain
bring on the rain
bring on the rain
the rain, the rain
Track Name: If I Was Cold
maybe if I was cold
I'd want someone to hold
but gone are the days that we knew
I'd stay if I still knew how to

and my hands are getting bored
from playing these same old chords
it's all just a pattern in my head
an endless revision of words said

cos now there is nothing left of
like we never even met love
so stop all this pleading
you left me here bleeding alone

and you can't take back
such things as that
we just lost track of time
and lost our place in line
and now this rift defines us both

maybe if I was cold
I'd break off from the whole
there's no reason for me to stay here
and I think that you feel the same dear

cos now there is nothing left of
like we never even met love
and being with you is no fun
when everything is in question

so stop all this pleading
you left me here bleeding
I'm finally seeing
you're not what I'm needing
two broken hearts beating
now I am leaving alone
Track Name: October
hold up, I'm running behind
I didn't meant to waste all this time
on something I'm still trying to find
in between these melodies and stupid rhymes

October, we left it far behind
all the costumes, candy, cops, and stop signs
it's colder, now you never go outside
just films and books and tracing dotted lines

we counted the birds down by the pond
less each day til all of them were gone
can someone please tell me where they go?
I've asked and asked yet no one seems to know

I'm spending my days like dollar bills
waste it all on alcoholic thrills
I'm pending but time's not standing still
brings us change with every day it kills

you told me it's time to face the facts
you had your chance now there's no going back
I"m empty but why the hell is that?
I've stoked the coals, I've filled the holes and cracks

well it's crystal clear
we've reached the end of our road
but we're still here
without any place to go

well it's crystal clear
we've reached the end of our road
but we're still here
without a place to call home
Track Name: Comanche Street
it smells like a fire outside
the cool air rises in tides
and fills our lungs with air
and it is freezing but we don't care

on the horizon lights shine
the city buzzes with life
but it is quiet here
the heavy silence numbs my ears

but don't make a sound
the temperature is, it's coming down
but I've got something so warm

cars are passing beneath
the bridge on Comanche Street
headlights blinking below
always thinking "too slow"

so lets take time while we can
before we're covered in plans
I've never felt so complete
with headlights under my feet

winter comes fast
November it, it never lasts
but I've got something so warm

time turns, we're unwound
the wind blows us all around
but I've got something so warm

so warm
so warm
so warm
Track Name: Icebergs
she works at an are display
tells people what it means all day
the empty frames and shapes of white
all covered in experimental light

beneath the surface there's so much more
her phrase of choice to every door
our eyes are limited at best
to what we all have going on deep down within our chests

and it keeps us up
though it's barely enough
you'll hold it close to you
because it's all that you can do

he has ideas he can't explain
amorphous blobs inside his brain
he works them out when he's alone
translates them into words and then carves them down into stone

we all aren't what we choose to be
we blend into our scenery
sit back until the timing's right
then go out in a blast of flame, light everything in sight

and it keeps us up
though it's barely enough
you'll hold it close to you
because it's all that you can do

cos we're not in control
the friction takes its toll
this thing we're up against
won't take the time to make sense

like icebergs we're always drifting
something below keeps us shifting
we can't control what we're missing
it keeps us floating, keeps us going
it keeps us going, keeps us going
well it keeps us going, keeps us going
it keeps us going
Track Name: Abby
Abby, where have you been lately?
your hearts somewhere icy and covered in snow
the winter, it left you with nothing
but the spring is coming and home you will go

and you will find there
is reason to compare
the time you had before the dotted lines
alone, driver's seat
the radio repeats
a million different ways to say it's fine
you say it's fine

Abby, these roads do the tearing
the teeth that they're bearing can fill you with fear
but don't hide, there's promise in streetlight
all along the roadside, to make the way clear

just freeze-frame this silly little game
the best won't always be in your rear-view
and you can embrace these little hands
and open up your eyes to something new
to something new

Abigail, can you not tell?
you're not alone in waiting for the end
and we don't know where we will go
but in our minds we picture and pretend
