Track Name: intro/decision tree
you don’t speak with the words of a child
but i know what you’re thinking about
and you still -
you still want to fly
Track Name: waterproof
save me
save my broken strings
take me
take my only wings
i don’t need to know
i don’t need to know where we’re going
i just need to know
i just need to know the wind’s blowing

crutches, buckets
flushed out and down the drain
riptide, stop signs
so little friends remain
i don’t even know
i don’t even know where i’m going
shuffle through the snow
shuffle till i know the river’s flowing

guess i gotta keep on runnin’, runnin’, runnin’ now
there’s no other way to slow it, slow it, slow it down
my heels are on but my soul is twenty-seven feet off from the ground
so if you catch me divin’
just don’t let me drown

under cover, places they’d never go
lovers, thunder, faces i’ll never hold
i don’t need another road
i don’t need another home to preserve me
you can let me go
if you let me know it deserves me

guess i gotta keep on runnin’, runnin’, runnin’ now
there’s no other way to slow it, slow it, slow it down
my heels are on but my soul is twenty-seven feet off from the ground
so if you catch me divin’
just don’t let me drown
Track Name: the fourth wall is broken
INT. / EXT. THE WORLD — DAY/NIGHT

A: where are we?
B: somewhere in the middle
A: not anymore
B: i can’t see anything; it’s so dark
A: just look more closely
B: i’m blind
A: i know
B: i want to show you my favourite song
A: my hearing aid broke
B: you don’t need it
A: what’s the truth?
B: you don’t need it
A: there’s beauty in lying
B: what do we need?
A: we just need a story
B: what’s the story?
A: we never get what we want
Track Name: chaos theory
we could start a fire
as we pray
for the flames to go higher
in the rain

we could carve our initials
on display
but even skin crumples
and even trees age

oh we shoulda known
oh that we’re both alone
we could melt the ice in the summertime
and it’ll take a while till we realize
everything illuminates tentatively
everything evaporates eventually

that’s not to say it’s not worth it
to make a scene
take love and return it
like they do on silver screens

you can keep the footage
you can keep the change
cause’ the years will come
and our tears will rearrange

oh we shoulda known
oh that we’re both alone
we could melt the ice in the summertime
and it’ll take a while till we realize
everything illuminates tentatively
everything evaporates eventually

what good would it do
to take me with you?
what good would it do
to hold onto you?
Track Name: weak knees
tell me all the ways
you can call a place you miss
i swear i saw the cranes
somewhere that we used to live

weak knees
i’m knockin’ on the dining table
weak knees
i’m rockin’ in your dusty cradle
teach me
i’m haunted by your streaks of gray
oh teach me
i’m wanted backwards while i’m on the way

lend me fickle words
sounds i’ve never heard before
over calendars
that i don’t know how to ignore

weak knees
i’m knockin’ on the dining table
weak knees
i’m rockin’ in your dusty cradle
teach me
i’m haunted by your streaks of gray
oh teach me
i’m wanted backwards while i’m on the way

i’ll take your coat for you
i know the stairs are steep
and i’ll fight the clock with you
there is no need to weep

weak knees
i’m knockin’ on the dining table
weak knees
i’m rockin’ in your dusty cradle
teach me
i’m haunted by your streaks of gray
oh teach me
i’m wanted backwards while i’m on the way
Track Name: foreword/new recording
time
only time
steals what is mine

time
after time
heals and defines

come and take a seat
let’s watch time
it’s too late to leave
let’s watch time

find all the tricks
another answer
another drink

minds
lonely minds
chasing what’s left behind

come and take a seat
let’s watch time
it’s too late to leave
let’s watch time
