Track Name: Clouds 1-8
Your feet upon the ground
My eyes up in the clouds
Feet pull you from the place I want you to be right now
I'm begging for the clouds
Bring me swiftly, safe and sound
You're hiding from the rain
My eyes are raining down

Running anchors in the wall
Climbing down before you fall
Riding droplets through the wind
Wishing you would just stand tall
Oh, I pretend not to see
But I know why you run
I know why you run
I know why you run away from me
And I'd have to agree
Track Name: Mary Got Married
I'm miles away from where you learned
Just how to take my heart and run
You had to fake that limping leg
'Cause sympathy will get you paid
Oh, how slow I try when I start to hate her second nature
Oh, it's been so long since I stayed in her home
That year I married Mary
But I ain't married no more

Nothing set in stone except my feet under the lake
When I jumped in with these concrete shoes
Nothing set in stone except the sword that I will break
To keep your king away from rescuing you

Flash in the pan, blink of an eye
This runaway will pass you by
Stay awake, get a good look
'Cause when it's gone, it's gone for good
Oh, it's been so long since I had left her home
That year I heard Mary got married
But Mary ain't married no more

Nothing set in stone except the rules that we all break
'Cause after all, who said these rules are true?
Nothing set in stone except the statue of a great man
Who hid the fact that he was lost too

Nothing set in stone
Nothing set in stone
Nothing set in stone
Nothing set in stone
Track Name: End of Me (feat. Julie Odell-Jones)
By way of agitation, less than secret admiration
Some might find my dedication to be unwise
They say, "Take your time."
But your way of imagination
Such a passionate patience in your eyes
Medicating me on sight
I'm liquified
So set this pool on fire before you say goodbye
Tell me it's not time

Go, go, go, go
No, no, no, no
You're so, so slow to decide
If you leave here, then I'll be there
I'm not the lackluster kind
And I've made up my mind

Dig into the well
I've got my heart on my lapel
My pail is dry
Tears won't turn themselves to wine
Yet in my pail I cry
Why my feet won't carry me home

Go, go, go, go
No, no, no, no
You know no dose to prescribe
You will break and you will falter
A troubled snake in troubled water
I've been bitten blind
And I've made up my mind

Please don't mind me when you find me
Frozen, cracked and alone
Let me go, let me go, 'cause I can't let go

Melt me down

The end of you, the end of me
But in the end, where will we be?
A string of pearls, a string of graves
Just sing to me and I'll behave
Track Name: Boxes
I once had a love, and it filled up my heart
Now it fills me with heavy, not quite like the start
It fills me with empty in here by myself
And all the boxes on my shelf are empty
Empty as well
I once had the soft grass, had shade from the heat
Took this ground for granted, now it's gone from my feet
Where once she would tell me that her eyes were mine
Now this room seems crowded
And I'm in the back of the line

No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away

There's more second chances, more fish in the sea
But I'm not one for fishing when I'm dead on the beach
When you've got a fire, just hold back the fuel
'Cause no matter what I do
I was, I was the fool
When I had the oyster, I searched for the shells
But now that you're gone, I don't want no one else
Now all of these boxes are empty as hell
And all of my words are empty
Empty as well

No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
I said the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
I said the ground that you gave me
I threw it, I threw it away
Track Name: Cloud 9
Your little heart is falling apart
You're off to a terrible start
Let's look around
Where have you gone?
Never look down
Down, down

I know there was a day that when the pilgrims pray
Often times I would say I won't go out of my way
I don't know what you do
The trouble I go through
To take the prayer out of you
What have you done, now what did you do?
Can't you hear the sound
Your heart is breaking down
And falling from a cloud
We'll search around this whole damn town
And bring back every fear and frown and kiss and curse
Up to the clouds
And put your heart back how I found it
Baby that's an awful lot of love I have for you
