Track Name: Sun Salutations
Rose to face the sun today,
To find that all its rays
Had been replaced with a cast of grays.
If all we had is all we have,
Then all we have is all we'll have.

My friends, dear to my heart,
They said 'Man
It seems like you're falling apart
If you've got a
Large weight,
Leave it behind.
You have to face the news.'
Nah man, everything's fine
Just had a
Rough day, just need to unwind.
No problem,
A small weight can't keep me behind.
Just have to play it cool.
'No way, it's deeper than that.
You've got a
Chafed itch and a trudge in your step.
To follow
Will consume.
You need to accept
There's something up with you.'
My friends, dear to my heart,
Say I need
Catharsis,
I'm falling apart.
I've got a
Large weight.
Leave it behind
And learn to face the news.

Had to come to terms today,
Because I kept on thinking that
Oh never would it ever rain.
If all we had is all we have,
Then all we have is all we'll have.
Track Name: I Do Too
Slowly folding
And it don't feel new.
Feelings that hold me
Want to break loose,
And I do too.
I do too.
Hey there, do I know you?

Sorry, loving
Takes test runs too.
Feeling
Like I'm using-
You want to lose,
And I do too.
Yeah, I do too
Hey there, do I know you?

Seemed really nice to get to know you.
Wasn't my intention to be rude.
No it wasn't my intention to be rude.
If you could see inside my brain, if only you knew.
Yeah if you could see inside my brain, if only you knew.

First to flake
Finds youth.

Sorry, loving
Takes test runs too.
Feelings that hold me
Want to break through,
And I do too.

Seemed really nice to get to know you.
Wasn't my intention to be rude.
No it wasn't my intention to be rude.
If you could see inside my brain, if only you knew.
Track Name: Solar Grade
Sewn
To a piece of life that I bore when
I was young.
When you were young
You wore the same thing,
A leather dream pressed on
To become what you put in.
What happens when
Your world fades to pinks?

Every time I close my eyes
Something inside my head still tries.

So,
Did you find your eyes or feel for a way to see
What you believe
You would be?
Did you find a line that if you crossed you'd never leave?
Do you believe
It's worth your peace?

Every time I close my eyes
Something inside my head still tries.
Pushing up against the grade,
Sometimes it's more than I can take.

Every time I close my eyes
Something inside my head still tries.
Pushing up against the grade,
Sometimes I find it's worth the weight.
Track Name: Perfume
Everybody wants a guarantee.
It's easy to believe
That anyone can buy peace.
Buy some shine for your personality,
But I dig what's underneath.

Man, your gloss is gleaming.
But your eyes,
I see you screaming inside.
Trying to be pleasing,
Oh please don't live life with dreads of living right.
You're fine.
I don't want to have to tell you
Just how bad you smell with perfume.
I don't want to have to tell you
Just how bad you smell with perfume.

Everybody wants a guarantee.
It's easy to believe
All your friends need you to be
'Pretty'.
Buy some time at all the best boutiques,
But I dig what's underneath.

Man, your gloss is gleaming.
But your eyes,
I see you screaming inside.
Trying to be pleasing,
Oh please don't live life with dreads of living right.
You're fine.
I don't want to have to tell you
Just how bad you smell with perfume.
I don't want to have to tell you
Just how bad you smell with perfume.
Track Name: Like You
So let go,
Leave a little bit out in the cold and
Find yourself a new
Way to live exposed.
Predecessors live once, but get old,
Yeah.
Form yourself for you,
Like you.

Memories, set me free.
It was the better half I fell for.
Oh memories, memories.

So let go,
Leave a little bit out in the cold and
Find yourself a new
Way to live exposed.
Predecessors live once, but get old,
Yeah.
Form yourself for you,
Like you.
Track Name: Vessels in Dusk
Two loves awry.
Two eyes unaligned.
She was to be a memory, not a
Novelty.

So settle me steadily
Because it holds me tightly.
Don't let go.

Won't take my time.
Won't come unwind.
She was to be a memory, not a
Novelty.

So settle me sweetly
Because it holds me tightly.
Don't let go.

Set sail too late
And found that I became what I grew:
A cold, stale, dead weight,
Born in love and decay from what
I knew of you.
Now these memories are but vessels lost
In the stormy sea of a troubled mind
Who's lost its way, full of pain.
No, I'm not used to this change.
Oh, what has become of me?
