Track Name: Brewin' Up
An ocean away, staring at the sea bed
She wonders why it can be so hard to find a reason
Lights a cigarette and hopes this one won’t kill her
Flicks off the ash on cobblestone at last
She’s gone, to start another dream
But it’s not what it seems
I know she’s alright
Brewin’ up with me at night
But the sun is setting on the pavement lines
Pick me up and drive away
Sunday evening won’t you hold your breath
Keep her by my side
Buzz me in at night and hobble to the doorway
I’d watch my step without your friends to help
Move you on, along the tattered streets
The ground so hard on your feet
I know she’s alright
Brewin’ up with me at night
But the sun is setting on the pavement lines
Pick me up and drive away
Sunday evening won’t you hold your breath
Keep her by my side
Track Name: So Long, Vondel Tree
Stop dreaming, I hope you can enjoy
The autumn of your life is passing by
Take a break from the ordinary foes
They will serve no use in time
I know you’re only here for the night this time
I can’t help but sleep with crystal eyes
Those sad eyes you know I cannot take
They will start to break my heart
Cripple my thoughts and run right through my head
I haven’t had enough to mind
I know you’re only here for the night this time
I can’t help but sleep with crystal eyes
It’s starting to fade out, my vondel tree
Track Name: Darling Al
Summer came and with it sadness
And all we had was one month to show
Oh alone again, oh alone again
Close your eyes and I’ll be there tonight
Think of me when you turn off your light
Oh I’m lost again, oh you’re lost again
Darling Ali, Darling Ali
Track Name: See It Go
Why don’t you open up your eyes
This car can’t make it one more night
It’s starting to rust, in all the wrong places
You saw it leak all the way down this street
I know it pains you to see it go
Like dripping whiskey down your throat
There’ll be another one I know
Like aging barrels in a row
It’s turning to dust whether or not
You believe it, it’s time to move on
You’re not alone, to see it go
I will get you by
So make a hole in the brand new seat
And burn your cigarettes and coffee
My guess is in a few weeks
You’ll forget that old leak
It’s turning to dust whether or not
You believe it, it’s time to move on
You’re not alone, to see it go
I will get you by
Track Name: Daylight Sun
So your friend
Has a real nice hiding spot
Up there, up high in the darkness
I wonder if he lost his grip
Would the ladder fall to the grass
The trap door below breaks free
He sails through the breeze, to the ground
Daylight sun in my eyes
My back begins to tingle
And later on I’ll go for a walk in the meadow
Let it make my day, it will seem
But I’ll get my bare feet muddy
And lose my shoes
Clouds now span the sky
The forest starts to thicken
My toes are blue
I look for a break in the tree line
As the thorns close in on all sides
And just as I make it to the edge
It disappears
He now sees
His hiding spot and me
Looking on, looking down
At the darkness
I ask him if he’s lost his mind
Babbling about monsters in the forest
Track Name: Don't You Know I'm Alright
Some of the time I get dizzy
Thinking half of my life I’ll be busy
You start to worry that I’m losing faith
But don’t you know I’m alright
Dancing alone with my feet they’re growing long
Sweating inside, on this mystic valley ride
I’m sure you noticed that I lost my head
But don’t you know I’m alright
Swiftly come on, you start and I will follow along
Whisper softy and derange my mind
Don’t you know I’m alright
Track Name: Ordinary Life
This is no ordinary, this is no ordinary life
I tried to cast a shadow, I tried to make a shadow move
Would you mind stepping to the side
You’re just in my view
We counted all the pieces, and drove into the falls
We counted all the pieces, and wrapped our fingers up with gauze
Underneath the weeping willow
Underneath I fell into a moon
And searched for my arrival, I ate the leaves right off the ground
I’m never sure if we were too lured
By the colors inside
This is no ordinary life, this is no ordinary life
This is no ordinary, this is no ordinary life
I tried to cast a shadow, I tried to make a shadow move
I’m scared of it all, splattered on the windows and the walls
Lost feeling in my hands, standing in the cold
Waiting for a hint to come along
Stomach turns on a dime, and I gather up pennies for my time
Stoop low and get lost, on tattered streets
That you would always cross
Track Name: Neon Colored Pixels
I’ve been swimming in a dream
I sink my words down deep
To the bottom of the ocean
Down here stuck inside
I can hear you calling darling now
Neon Colored Pixels all around
I’ve been swimming in a dream
I sink my words down deep
To the bottom of the ocean
The open blue gathers ahead
Next to fallen anchors from the bow
Watch their muddled whispers to the ground
And I can hear you calling darling now
Neon Colored Pixels all around
