Track Name: Mend
Here it is, now watch it fall
You gave it nothing, nothing at all
It’s going to take some time
To count off your blessings
Haven’t you learned your lesson?
You speak the truth as if it comes to you
It’s going to take some time

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Mend, mend my heart
When’s it gonna, is it gonna?
Get me back what I lost
When’s it gonna, is it gonna?
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Make no mistake
These walls were built to break
You build your fortress tall
But it will only stall
It’s going to take some time
Still you keep coming back my way
I’ll keep leading you astray
I know that this aint right
But it keeps coming for the night
I know it going to take some time

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Mend, mend my heart
When’s it gonna, is it gonna?
Get me back what I lost
When’s it gonna, is it gonna?
---------------------------------------------------------------------


When’s it gonna Stop.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Pack It Up
There’s a calm outside
There’s a ruby red sky
With every thought in mind
Pack it up, ship it out, give it time
Meet me round sunrise
Keep my head on tight
If your mother said it’s fine
Pack it up, ship it out, give it time

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Cover up your eyes
Sensationalize
Show me the silver line
Pack it up, ship it out give it time

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
---------------------------------------------------------------------

You had it but you don’t
It fell but it never broke
You had it but you don’t
It fell but it never broke

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
Oh there’s nothing I want more than what is coming
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Lukewarm
What’s this here?
Washing up on the shore
It’s bitter taste, lukewarm
Now I can’t shake this off.
Tell me what you want and I can get it all
But, if you keep covering up your eyes
You know you’re leaving no surprise

Well I know, which way this is going
You’re gonna take her in your arms
You’re going to lie like you know it.
You could see it coming.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
You say you want it
But you’ve got no hope
If death leaves you haunted
Deliver your soul
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Give me a tomb because I don’t need room
I’m tired of your blessings, it’s overused
It’s coming up trite, it’s verbal abuse
I’m tired of leaving under amused

---------------------------------------------------------------------
You say you want it
But you’ve got no hope
If death leaves you haunted
Deliver your soul
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Watchmaker
Turn that dial
Spin that clock
Hang it up on your wall
Before where the money starts bleeding
Your heart starts receding
You don’t need a hand to make the numbers count

Now, where did it come from?
Where do we go?
Draw a line, horizon, head for the coast
Give into the water, it always knows
The spring tide is heavy, the market is low

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Just shut off the lights if that’s your decision
Close your eyes and be done
But, I know the watchmaker
He’s keeping time
It’s too late to be young
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Well now, toss a line
The water is drought
Reconcile
Go on and take it out
Go on and take it out
Don’t it seem like it won’t stop
The preachers on the mount
I aim my mark
Go on and take it out
Go on and take it out

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Just shut off the lights if that’s your decision
Close your eyes and be done
But, I know the watchmaker
He’s keeping time
It’s too late to be young
---------------------------------------------------------------------

So for whatever reason
I can’t find the feelin’
Go on and let the cards fall
Can someone make it real, right wrongs, reveal
Go on and let the cards fall
Go on and let it in

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Track Name: Cost Me More
Up on the shelf
Into the mirror
All polished and pale, trouble ain’t hard to sell
I can’t believe what I’ve become, I’m not myself

---------------------------------------------------
Hold back
Is it gonna last forever
Is it gonna to cost me more
If I take it back
Is it gonna last forever
Is it gonna cost me more

Because, I don’t want to be in your modern coat
I just want to have somebody to take home
So give up, don’t try to fight it
I just want to have somebody to take home
---------------------------------------------------

Somewhere this tunnel began
But there’s no clue, no sign of the end
Those crumbs never did lead you to me
When it comes to pass,
I know it won’t last
That yelling, compelling, do I have to spell it
My heart is still stale, time will tell
I can’t believe what I’ve become, I’m not myself

---------------------------------------------------
Hold back
Is it gonna last forever
Is it gonna to cost me more
If I take it back
Is it gonna last forever
Is it gonna cost me more

Because, I don’t want to be in your modern coat
I just want to have somebody to take home
So give up, don’t try to fight it
I just want to have somebody to take home
---------------------------------------------------

Comatose, it is coming up in rows
We’re still screaming no.

---------------------------------------------------
