Track Name: Little Holes
stuffed animals in candle stores,
clay figurines in tiny drawers,
you always had a rough time fitting in
shaking in your bed like you couldn’t stop
drinking half a gallon in a single pop
the doctor said you did it on purpose
your eyes always made our mom nervous
now I’m certain they’re stuck on the surface

LITTLE HOLES IN OUR SEAMS
RIP A LITTLE MORE EACH YEAR
HAND ME DOWN PAIR OF JEANS
AND A SHIRT YOUR GIRLFRIEND USED TO WEAR

loud angry songs from quiet rooms,
thought you killed our cat so you dug her a tomb
you don’t talk a lot about your mind
pierce yourself for fun when you’re in the mood,
playing with a baby cause he understood
the doctor said you need more pills
the other ones couldn’t quite kill
now I’m hoping that you never will

LITTLE HOLES IN OUR SEAMS
RIP A LITTLE MORE EACH YEAR
HAND ME DOWN PAIR OF JEANS
AND A SHIRT YOUR GIRLFRIEND USED TO WEAR
HOW YOU LOVE YOUR ROUTINES
HOW YOU HATE THOSE PEOPLE THAT STARE
NEVER TRUST MY MACHINE
DON'T LISTEN TO ME, I'M NEVER THERE

frustrated, am I wrong or can I help?
am I on my own trying to discover what it is you’re thinking about?
stand my ground, even if I’m wrong I wouldn’t tell
I apologize but I’m pretty sure he’s in your hands now

mom doesn’t think you should come back home
cold hospital bed on your own
thirty-seven Advil did the trick
crying on the floor, did it really hurt?
messing with your sister cause she did it first
the doctor said take another class
this time maybe you could just pass
I’m thinking we need more than that
Track Name: The Pond
deep in my heart I’m stuck in my ways
when the exits are down for construction
I'm headed for the next state
the road that I’m on seems to go on for days
in times of despair is it fair
to pick a lane where I can wait?

O LORD, WILL WE EVER SEE THE END OF THIS
WILL YOU HEAL MY EYES WITH YOUR KISS
IS OUR HOME PUT ON HOLD

deep in the pond you thought something stirred
but evening has proved insufficient
so leave without a word
the wind loves your voice,
and you wanted to be heard
in times of confusion is it true we head north like a bird?

O LORD, WILL WE EVER SEE THE END OF THIS
WILL YOU HEAL MY EYES WITH YOUR KISS
IS OUR HOME PUT ON HOLD
O LORD, WILL WE EVER SEE THE END OF THIS
WILL YOU SWALLOW MY EMPTINESS
IS OUR HOME PUT ON HOLD

the cracks from my past are now in front of me
I’m nothing like the man I was gonna be
dirt from the forest is skirting my floor
and I can’t sweep it up with my atrophy

right now the loneliness is getting evident
any word of yours at this point would be heaven-sent
my body is wasting but my heartbeat is racing
these caves are much deeper than they’ve ever been
Track Name: Recycling
nothing works like it used to
the styrofoam town where we all bought a house
was meant to be used and thrown away
where do we hide our trash
when the ocean’s filled to the brim
there is no room in space for empty plastic bins

take it out on your mother
the toys in your room that helped make it through
were packed in a bag and thrown away
what’ll you tell your kids
when they ask how you grew up
was there any room on the shelf for empty plastic cups

do you ever wonder why
we were built for leaving?
and the glass to break your fall
just keeps you bleeding?
and the courage to ask the sky
is still receding?
Track Name: Dietz
you're finding gray where your gold used to be
and I know it must be under your skin
the season change is malfunctioning
and you're waiting for springtime again

what happens if it doesn't come?
do you turn off your phone and travel back to Louisiana
where the weather will burn you numb
in the race you would rather run?

THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH I CAN DO
TO SAVE YOU FROM THE PAIN YOU KNEW
SO LITTLE LEFT TO TALK YOU THROUGH
WHEN THE CURTAIN CLOSES, WE'LL BE THERE FOR YOU

you're writing plans that we cannot keep
but I know I will sign them anyway
the days are gone when we needed sleep
so lets go down to the train tracks again
Track Name: On Dying
boy, you're dreaming of something more
than the friends that you grew up with
and the voice behind the door
is not the girl that you grew up with
and you're thinking about the past
with questions that you can't ask
and you're there for years

the fireflies on the lawn
drag you back to your house as a child
when the run in your creek is gone,
man, did it flow at all?
and you're praying the seal will last
double knotted against the mast
and you're there for years

I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT IF I CAN'T
I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT IF I CAN'T
I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT
IF I CAN'T BEAR TO SEE THE EMBERS BURN

all your friends moved on
full time in their busy day jobs
and you still bother to call
but they never pick up

you're a plant in your mother's driveway
dig your roots out before she drives away
or you'll be there for years

I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT IF I CAN'T
I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT IF I CAN'T
I DON'T WANNA WASTE IT
IF I CAN'T BEAR TO SEE THE EMBERS BURN

WILL YOU EVER NEED ME
WILL YOU EVER NEED ME
WILL YOU EVER NEED ME
I am ivy up a barren wall
Track Name: Shadow
you have a shadow to remind you
there is light pushing through

when your eyes are as dark
as the coldest part of the night
plea with the timing love,
it's only a play of sight
when the rain comes on like bullets to your wind
don't be surprised, it's just the world we're in

there is a winter that will find you
in the fire, pushing through

when your eyes are as dark
as the coldest part of the night
plea with the timing love,
it's only a play of sight
when the rain comes on like bullets to your wind
don't be surprised, it's just the world we're in

in the quiet
I want our hearts to beat the same
so when you're dying
we can get out of this place
you were crying
and it meant everything to me
cause in the quiet
I was the thing that let you be

alive
we're alive
Track Name: Stay (One Take at the CMC)
I thought you'd never come around
detract the cavity she left unwound
despite your somber intentions
you're telling me
if you wanna leave then I'll stay
if you wanna leave then I'll stay in line

WHEN DID WE DECIDE
WE WOULD BLAME IT ON EACH OTHER?
LET ME KNOW
IF YOU'D RATHER LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY
IF YOU'D RATHER LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY IN LINE

so when did I stop caring?
and when did I stop calling you?
despite your somber intention,
you're telling me
if you wanna leave then I'll stay
if you wanna leave then I'll stay in line

WHEN DID WE DECIDE
WE WOULD BLAME IT ON EACH OTHER?
LET ME KNOW
IF YOU WANNA LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY
IF YOU WANNA LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY BEHIND

cause it's a funeral we're up against
and if it doesn't stop now, lover tell me when?
how can you breathe at a time like this?

cause it's a funeral we're up against
and all the pretty lights in windows take away from this
you can't delegate the time you missed
cause you wanted to leave but I stayed
if you wanted to leave then I'll stay
if you wanted to leave then I'll stay in line

WHEN DID WE DECIDE
WE WOULD BLAME IT ON EACH OTHER?
LET ME KNOW
IF YOU WANNA LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY
IF YOU WANNA LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY
IF YOU WANNA LEAVE THEN I'LL STAY IN LINE
Track Name: Maple
feed on the fire of your youth
of what you thought you understood
the footsteps to get you where you are
scared the dove into the wood

sitting still under the maple back home
cross your legs, think of how far we've come
maybe we should fly away?

lift up your eyes for the year
has arrived for second chances
the Root of every dying limb you know
saw fit to feed your branches

sitting still under the maple back home
cross your legs, think of how far we've come
maybe we should fly away?
