Track Name: I Want
I want to live in a flower riddled valley
Where my feet are invisible
Under liquid smooth greens
That's where you'll find me

I want to feel oceans, not water on my flesh
I want to be me laughing
and I can't breathe
That's where you'll find me

I carry brown eyes in my pocket
Sun colored daisies on my face
and I can't wait
I'm licking snow chewing mountains
Not afraid
and I can't wait

I've got a bicycle and I'm flying
I've got a bicycle and I'm flying

I want air breathing sweet and clear through my lips
I want to kiss you
and feel my toes curled and coiling
Curled and coiling

I want to sing hums out my soul
That's where they live
That's where you'll find them
That's where you'll find me

I carry brown eyes in my pocket
Sun colored daisies on my face
and I can't wait
I'm licking snow chewing mountains
Not afraid
and I can't wait

I've got a bicycle and I'm flying
I've got a bicycle and I'm flying

I'm flying (x4)

I carry brown eyes in my pocket
Sun colored daisies on my face
and I can't wait
I'm licking snow chewing mountains
Not afraid
and I can't wait
Track Name: Dark Delilah
Dark Delilah
Playing checkers against herself
Picking up the phone, when nobody's home
Just to say hello

Listens to the radio
as background sound to drown out
the empty ground, the empty ground around
Dark Delilah

The wind it whispers quiet pleas
To come play outside
To come and play with the trees
The sun it shines straight for her eyes
Her eyes
Dark Delilah just stays alone inside

A head filled
With imaginary images, she's never seen
Too crippled by the colors so bright inside her mind
to need anything her eyes could really see
She's anything but empty
Anything but empty
Dark Delilah

The wind it whispers quiet pleas
To come play outside
To come and play with the trees
The sun it shines straight for her eyes
Her eyes
Dark Delilah just stays alone inside

The wind it whispers quiet pleas
To come play outside
To come and play with the trees
The sun it shines straight for her eyes
Her eyes
Dark Delilah just stays alone inside

Everyone who watches, watches confused
So caught up in watching a girl who needs no one
she seems to need no one
Dark Delilah
Track Name: Creature of the Rest
Clouds sit atop my body
The birds just above my eyes
My friends ask when I'll be moving
But I just stay here and lie

'Cause I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess
Thoughts travel up with nature
Empty, I become a creature of the rest

Am I different from the others
Am I strange among them all
Why do you all stay together
While I just lose my hold and fall

'Cause I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess
Thoughts travel up with nature
Empty, I become a creature of the rest

I refuse to be small
And I swore I'd be brave
So I stay far away
From all that I crave
And I hold myself right
As I lie through the days
And my friends go away
Alone here I remain

'Cause I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess
I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess
I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess
I like to be a little lonely
When my head is filled with mess

Thoughts travel up with nature
Empty, I become a creature of the rest

Thoughts travel up with nature
Empty, I become a creature of the rest
Track Name: Pebble
Pebbles
Fighting for space among rocks
That sit like kings atop ground
Dueling each day
For space and comfort
Crowded by the crowned

Were we born this way
Grayer than those bigger than
Can we fill the same space
Or is it a waste to reach out my hand

Were we born this way
Grayer than those bigger than
Can we fill the same space
Or is it a waste to reach out my hand

Barred behind
Chains I’ve created
Barred behind
Walls I’ve pretended
Barred inside
A mind I’ve suspended
Barred inside
A life unattended
A pebble is just a rock I’ve invented

Were we born this way
Grayer than those bigger than
Can we fill the same space
Or is it a waste to reach out my hand

Were we born this way
Grayer than those bigger than
Can we fill the same space
Or is it a waste to reach out my hand

Pebbles
Slinking through space among rocks
That stand tall atop ground
Dueling away
Wasting their days
Intimidated by doubt

Barred behind
Chains I’ve created
Barred behind
Walls I’ve pretended
Barred inside
A mind I’ve suspended
Barred inside
A life unattended
A pebble is just a rock I’ve invented
Track Name: Can't Cover Color Up
Take the bucket off your scalp
You're filled with trash
It's creeping out the bottom
You're taunting me, taunting me, taunting me now
but I see it

Cut outs for my eyes
I'm crying now
Can't you see the ground
Cut outs for my eyes
Drains are flooding now
Can't you see the ground

Plastic's bright blue
You're toned white, I see you
Stuck
Can't cover color up

I'm rampant, I'm uncontrolled
Can't hold me in
I'm a maniac drowning
You're taunting me, taunting me, taunting me now
but I see it

Cut outs for my eyes
I'm crying now
Can't you see the ground
Cut outs for my eyes
Drains are flooding now
Can't you see the ground

Plastic's bright blue
You're toned white, I see you
Stuck
Can't cover color up

Plastic's bright blue
You're toned white, I see you
Stuck
Can't cover color up

Buckets don't float
Buckets don't stay afloat
Buckets don't float
You're taunting me so
But I know that they don't float

Plastic's bright blue
You're toned white, I see you
Stuck
Can't cover color up

Plastic's bright blue
You're toned white, I see you
Stuck
Can't cover color up
