Track Name: The Long Distance Runner
Don't blame yourself there's enough blood spilled
Don't cut yourself I need your help
Hope led us on; you were always so keen to run ahead
You lost yourself, I needed a savior
Please bring him home
God kills all his angels, and my best friends
My best friends

I remembered your face
I remembered your face
Splinters of time and space

Hope leads us on
Hope leads us on

Don't blame yourself
Track Name: A Year In The Wilderness
Saving the best; last is always most loved 

A year in the wilderness, with unspoken words all over my arms
I've been carrying your shadow; I’ve been offering a truce

I can feel your heels digging in

Do you feel like you're at home?
I was slowing down my heartbeat, before it could collapse

I spent a year in the wilderness living between the cracks

That opened beneath the world under our feet

I only want to hear you sing; sing songs for me
I've been carrying your shadow; I've been offering a truce

I can feel your heels digging in

Do you feel like you're at home?
Track Name: If You Need Me I'll Be At Palomar
Time to put the pen away now
I am done and I am gone
The air is turning bitter now
I can smell rain

If you need me I’ll be at Palomar
Looking up; finding home

Time to hope for something again

It was such a long dark hard time to be lost in here
It was such a long dark hard time to be lost in this space
Track Name: I Won't Ever Go To Sleep Again
How am I supposed to let you go?
If I don’t know how you’ll be when you’re alone.
It’s something I’ve got to live with

I won’t write anymore.
Everything I’ve said has only broke your heart
And I know it’s so fragile

I won’t ever go to sleep again
I won’t ever go to sleep again

If you were here you would tell me to stop
You would try to heal my breaking heart
Because you know how much it hurts

I won’t ever go to sleep again
I won’t ever go to sleep again
Track Name: I Met A Man Who Wasn't There
By the river there's a man
Who holds no future in his hands
And his past is washing by
Floating through this lullaby

No one needs to know his name
How he got here
Or from where he came

He's just a man looking on
Trying to find where he belongs

I asked him a question, who will I be
He just stared right through me
He holds his gaze with no man

Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met this man who wasn’t there

He wasn’t there again today

I wish, I wish he’d go away..
Track Name: A River Of Ghosts
I was tied to a stone and I sank in a river of ghosts
I know what I wanted but no one would be there to know
Hands were wrapping around me like reeds
Down in the bottom of my heart is where I heard your voice
And you were calling my name
Told me I would be okay
I floated to the top
Pulled down before my first breath
Track Name: Idea 4_6Aug2012
I thought I would live until I was old
That it’d be my choice and I’d have money too.
I dreamed I lived in a house on a mighty ocean
It was the closest to you I’d ever be
I’m in trouble again
I’m in trouble again.
