LYRICS: You tore down all of these walls and forgot to rebuild the halls are so empty, no one cares anymore, no one listens Don't stay home we're all sick of you lazing around don't stay home keep looking until you've been found Sit back down hold all of my calls send my barrel over the falls it's a landslide, but I'm not quite sure which direction Don't stay home we're all sick of you lazing around don't stay home keep looking until you've been found

LYRICS: If this turns out to be another trick I'll have to reassign what I let stick it's not so bad, it's just a nervous tick what I make well would make you sick You always found a reason not to find out all the little things I never really questioned why when standing back bit back at me, I realized that all it brings is shorter points and longer lines It's not so hard to rock back and forth when what you saw as south was really north I can see your point, but my mind can't sort how it could cost so much to sell me short When the word comes through from some omniscient source that the world's a mess and we've all run our course well you can work yourself or you can work your horse until you've worked enough to never feel remorse

Spaniard 03:02
All these years the line gets closer and closer then disappears some night you forgot to say I had lost myself by the time it was over and I had lost myself by the time it was done Oh your teeth dig deep my bones are your host this year it's hard enough to keep composed on this surface but I had lost myself by the time it was over and I had lost myself by the time it was done

Foe Paw 04:12
LYRICS: You stop short, but don't say why I guess you never had it in you some hopes are up too high and some holes are too low to crawl into I hope you left your lie some miles ago trailing behind you show up in some disguise and pray some sign will never Find you The right way is the wrong way twice you never let your eyes drift off the man holding the dice you poor kid, crawling with lice sweet disgusted sympathies just never come out right You fall short, but take so long and ten tethers pull with every motion hopped up on someone's song some lines just never let up You stop short, but don't say why I guess you never had it in you some hopes are up too high and some holes are too low to crawl into I hope the day you die you won't be cursing what you've been through up there in some old sky they'll pray to change the weather

Low Tide 02:55
LYRICS: The saw wave's cutting through me but I do not mind it's the pulse when my heart beats sharp and refined oh the triangle will be sweeter than wine just open your eyes and you'll see the sine
