Track Name: Cleme[i]ntine
Clementine how did we get this far
I can’t even see the line we crossed?
Let me wipe every trace of you from my mind
Won’t you disappear in time oh Clementine

Darling can’t you see you are the con in me
I am the sailors wife you are the raging sea
Everything thing that I own is floating in your hands
I watched you go

Look at the mess we made
Can’t you see you’re a mess

We were followed here by the things we did
With your memory I dug a shallow trench
I layed you down I Filled the hole
and with your ghost I built my home
Our monument

Look at the mess we made
If you were a thief then I was a saint
A dreadful end to a clean escape
Why do I carry you around?
Track Name: Watch the Sky Fall
The forfeit of
Holding your once free tongue
Sits round your neck, a weight I know
You shouldn’t have

The forfeit of
Closing off your open mind
Believing such hopeful lies
That today isn’t all we have

Now your eyes will
Watch the sky fall, watch the sky fall
With your eyes you’ll
watch the sky fall, watch the sky fall

The forfeit of staying between the lines
For speaking all those sweet lies
For playing the game that will never let you win

The forfeit of
Not speaking up when thoughts plagued you though the night
For running away when your out of time, when you could have made it back

Now You’ve seen
The chance for farewells just up and leave
With no goodbye they’re walking off alone
Into the distance
Track Name: Seven Days
Darwin fought long and hard
In favor of one spark that formed your heart
No forethought, no planning
Just one very fortunate happening

Skeptics say the truth is what you make of it
Bend and shape the laws until you make them fit
Your reasoning with what just can’t be

Seven days seven days
Watched from lofty heights the galaxies be set right
Seven days seven days
Watched love ignite our hearts inside

The end sees dust and bones grab for straws
In search of the cure, you heard, ignored
Empty hands, retired plans
This house you built sits on sinking sand

Seven days seven days
Watched from lofty heights the galaxies be set right
Seven days seven days
Watched love ignite our hearts inside

You were
The one thing that love
Could not
Forsake or give up
The day’s saw
Hands make what love forgave
Track Name: The Least of Things
There’s a pause in the air
Waiting for these words to appear
There’s a wreck in my mind
All three words have crashed and piled
And so I think they'll be a while
Getting through

This may seem like the least of things
That I wrote three words in showers steam
My neatest writing on fogged up glass
I hope it will be enough

This record on repeat has
Told you five times at least
With eloquence and grace
Everything I should be
and it’s putting me to shame
So I’ll wait

This may seem like the least of things
For the most part of my morning
I arranged three words in your cereal
I hope it will be enough

My fear’s standing there being fed
While courage sits and starves itself
My tongue’s fighting a war on its own
Against all I need to say right now

This may seem like the least of things
and my silence now is deafening
So if I whisper then you may not hear
Know there’s more to the words I say
Track Name: Love Divine
The night sky
Unveiling love divine
Beauty entwined
In eternal lights

And Heavens song
Called us forth from the ground
To lift our eyes
Behold the one who’s love

This raised voice will testify that loves alive

Breath of life
Turned blackened hands to white
Softened stone hearts
Now melted ice

Such broken lives
That grace has now revived
Fully alive
In Love divine
Track Name: Change of Clothes (rubber duck song)
Like a rubber duck this yellow skin
Is showing signs of wearing itself thin

Rain, oh rain please go away
and come again some other day

Like a sitting duck this tired heart
Can find no shelter from the looming storm

Rain, oh rain please go away
and come again some other day

I've been drowned, I've been soaked, tossed around and been choked
I've looked low and looked high for some reason why
And no wish that I say makes these clouds dissipate
Can't you see I've no change of clothes

I see the tears I sent to heaven's heights
Is this the day they fall back from the sky
Track Name: Coldest Night, Darkest Day
If you were a sailor you'd take to the sea
Run ashore run away, run from the secrets I keep
The final victory is that I let you leave
The truth I dare tell is you are tied to me

You belong to me, where the sky met the sea
Is where I begin and you leave me

You're the finest captain to those you meet
Full of curtseys and bows and smiles so sweet
Your exposed heart means they can watch it beat
Coldest night darkest day is the life you lead

You belong to me, where the sky met the sea
Is where I begin and you leave me

If I'm the hope you gave up on you're the cowardly foe
Who lost the courage to fight for the one they love
If you turn your back i'll only face the front
Don't worry dear I'll fight for us both
Track Name: Eden
Oh when in eden
Our eyes were larger
Than eve and the fist man

Still We shared the same fate
Lives lost to the weight
Of the just consequence

Headed east of where we’d been
With shoes wearing thin
You met us there
You met us there

Oh in the branches
We’d climbed to listen
To words flow from your mouth

Nothing came clearly
Till you spoke sweetly
Told us to climb back down

Headed down from where we’d been
With soles wearing thin
You met us there
You met us there

If we lost our eyes
Never found our sight
It would be like, it would be like
Apples of gold
In settings of silver
You would be all we would cling to

Oh on the water
T’was Your words that sought us
Over the raging sea

We’re worse than peter
Fear came to greet us
Kept us out of your reach

Headed out from where we’d been
With doubts sinking in
You met us there
You met us there
