Track Name: New Colors
why hurt when you're alone
just go and love someone

into each other we don't have to hide
if ever i'm home i'm here

these old paints wont blend together
so make some new colors

days reading into more than i can find
oh it's high on the ledge i hear
i'm a drunkard stumbling my way into a diamond mine
you're the riches behind my haze
we're reaching to slip into our place

if love dressed in red dreams us in blue glitters the color when i'm tasting you
Track Name: The River
When I think of a river, and it's winds and flows
I become part of it's moments, passing as it goes
Like debris that collects on my worried mind
I think about this all the time

Everyone gets old
And we all borrow our souls from the waste
We can't remember
But when i'm lost, you lead me back
Lead me to the river

On the banks of the river, my father led me home
said "Son I'm jealous, these depths I'll never know. But in me you reflect, let that ease your mind."
I think about him all the time

Everyone gets old
And we all borrow our souls from the waste
We can't remember
But when i'm lost, you lead me back
Lead me to the river

Everyone gets old
And we all borrow our souls from the waste
We can't remember
But when i'm lost, lead me back
Lead me to the river
Track Name: Didn't You Try
Don't speak aloud
Don't speak in vows
Don't believe when we say that we've had enough
Because you'd always wear it the worst
no you don't know

whisper light
whisper love
then slither away when you give up
because you always wear it the worst
and i wonder why

Didn't you try?

one lover begs
one lover won't
one by one you will use them till they burst
because you can never be alone
no you don't know

do they weep
do they cave
do they answer to all you crave
have you learned a new word
when you learned to lie

didn't you try?

is there anyone that creeps across your bones
like I tried
when you refuse the bravest of a home
I'll lie, i'll try

but didn't you try?
Track Name: Too Simple
It's too simple darling
to love like dolls
you need the riddles
on my wall

of all the weight too bold
hope i'm the anvil crashing down on your mind
I hold all the wait for you
when you try

Love's elusive
Like the monsters in the dark
when craving the electric
I can set you off

of all the weight too bold
hope i'm the anvil crashing down on your mind
I hold all the wait for you
when you try

It's the salesman
that bring you snake oil alcohol
I'll wash you in the waters
in my reservoir
Track Name: The Best I Have
Progress is a broken vase
Only the flowers inside are worth being replaced
With every walk we're taking there's a step that we'll trace
It gets safer the further away

This is the best I have to give
To make you feel comfortable inside of your skin
I'll make it worth it to remember
You're always worth it to remember

The concrete still greets like a cave
Pulled into dimly lit corners to settle on a grave
The sound refuge of seclusion still feels out of place
It belongs somewhere further away

This is the best I have to give
To make you feel comfortable inside of your skin
I'll make it worth it to remember
You're always worth it to remember

You are always worth it to remember
