Track Name: In the Garden
believing and needing
i'm feeling like healing
sing for as far as i see
the fool and the lovers
stuck between the covers
the wandering star at dawn
horizon all warming
i slipped out at morning
i tripped and i fell so far
the one that i once knew
receding in rear view
heart beating, alone, alive
to know is to survive
Track Name: Ageless
all my plans and intentions
were torn from my hands
and swept overboard
when the ship ran ashore
and now i should be combing
the wreckage for more

but i'm off in the weeds
in this red-bellied hell
where i waste all my time
and my savings as well

where the weight of the world's
got me pinned to the floor
but there's something that keeps me
reaching up for more

in the night when you sleep
somewhere else, far from me
do you dream of the way
that it all used to be

if i can't see it through
and get lost, as i do
i'll be dreaming of how
i can get back to you

i'm alright, i'm okay
something stuck in the way
something broken and ugly
that wants to remain

i wanna get out the door
and i wanna endure
but i won't if i can't
figure out what it's for

so i float
i'll try not to cling
go along
with whatever's happening

this is all there is
there's nothing more than this

aimless, ageless
i only stick around because it takes less

nameless, you're blameless
i only stuck around while it was painless
Track Name: Lamb
they say it's a sin
not to care if you win
if you live, if you die
if you just stay alive
so i'm running around
getting lost to get found
going up to get down
on the town

i'm sorry
i make it look so easy
my worries
falling off behind me

i'm off in the woods
i'm misunderstood
i don't have any words
i don't wanna be heard
with the wolf at my door
i don't play anymore
i don't feel anything
i cling, i cling

my baby
carry me to safety
on my knees
lay your hands upon me
i'm sorry
i make it look so easy
come find me
put your arms around me

and hold on, how long?
i can't stay strong
i know you know
you don't have to go
don't move so slow
i thought it was safe
i didn't think i had to wait
i'd cleared my plate
you made me a man
might have followed all my plans
but you are a lion
and i am a lamb

i'm a lamb
i'm a lamb
i don't wanna understand
my heart
in your hands
i'm a bird
on the wing
i don't wanna need anything
i don't want nothin
i wanna be

clear as a bell
Track Name: Wave
water flow
we all follow
day breaks
and slips beneath the wave
we didn't make it past the bay

it's how we know
where to go
and what remains
we'll scatter on the plains
we'll never waste another day

and never accept
confusion or regret
whatever it takes along the way

i'll make it home
on my own
with all i've known
bobbing gently back to shore

i'll purify on my own
Track Name: Once Again
i shouldn't say
my thoughts are overtaking me again today
i'll sit and wait
in silence for the clouds to up and run away
when suddenely
the feeling that i'm right where i'm supposed to be
surrounding me
nothing left to think or do or be

once again
i have found myself beside you
it's all i seem to do
let me remain and i'll give you my name
if you're telling me something that's true
now and then
i remember that i've kept you
here with me all along
permit me to sing and i'll give you my wings
if you leave me your heart when you're gone
i will die in the light of your song

advancer, you've given me your answer
i understand it's over
i don't know why i bother
to pretend
there is no one else beside you
not onto something new
a disconnect 'tween my heart and my head
and i don't know what else i can do

once again
i have found myself beside you
it's all i seem to do
let me remain and i'll give you my name
if you're telling me something that's true
now and then
i remember that i've kept you
here with me all along
permit me to sing and i'll give you my wings
if you leave me your heart when you're gone
i will die in the light of your song
Track Name: Sleeping at the Gate
i hit the pavement in the morning light
you were still in your bed when i slipped outside
to walk around and kill some time
as i thought of all i could do in advance
i should have done it when i had the chance

but i trailed onwards in the afternoon
you were left on your own in an empty room
i was thinking of returning soon
i was gonna tell you everything i'd planned
i'd only just begun to understand

and once i'd wandered long enough
i circled round and headed home
to rest my weary head upon your lap

turns out i was running late
the sun went down, they couldn't wait
they locked the door, i'm sleeping at the gate

the sun is gone, i'm sleeping at the gate
