Track Name: Antidote
I’ve been walking like I’ve got bricks in my shoes
My knuckles clutched reaching for pieces of you

You could mend my head,
You will be the reason I carried on
You will be the reason I am strong

My joints they are swollen from holding on to
The furthest distances that keep me from you

Lend me your halo

You could mend my head,
You will be the reason I carried on
You will be the reason I am strong
You are my antidote, you are my antidote
You could mend my head,
You will be the reason I carried on
You will be the reason that I am
Track Name: Live Like Bear
There’s a woman searching for honey
There’s no trail through the trees
And she’s not fit for winter

It’s easier in the movies,
On the verge of thirty-five
And she’s without a lover, so…

Start your hoarding, the winter is fast approaching
The winter is fast approaching here

There’s a man searching for his money
He wants to skin off the hides
Of the ones that he is hunting

He needs far more than just plenty
He wants to cave in the sky
And own the rivers that are turning slow…
Track Name: Suitcase Head
Hey suitcase head
You’re overweight with luggage heavy to carry
Locks mean nothing
When buttons burst and zippers rip as you’re stumbling

Hey suitcase head
You’re torn apart now pieces of you are missing
Stitches run though
Reminding you that you will miss them forever

Count yourself in
Or count yourself out
Keep your mouth shut
Or scream till your lungs cave in

Hey suitcase head
Your whole life’s been stuffed and packaged
Your skull is humming
You’ve got no room
For things you wouldn’t want have left behind
So you

Eventually the things that you’ve carried,
They’ll become you
That won’t let you alone, no

Count yourself in
Or count yourself out
Keep your mouth shut
Or scream till your lungs cave in
(Or scream till the top of your lungs cave and you’re gasping for air)
Track Name: Chapter 2
If it’s alright with you
I know what I will say now
If it’s alright with you
I think I’ll love you in my own way

And I’ve been thinking lately
That you’re my only baby
I’m not going nowhere

And if we’re sharing weight
We’d lift our legs and we’d live our own way
I say we live our own way now
Cus’ if we’re sharing weight
We’d lift our legs and we’d live our own way
I say we live our own…

It’s you…

We’re on to chapter two
You’re writing this one with me
And I would lie to you if I said I wasn’t scared sometimes

I say we live our own way
Track Name: Forth
Go forth with your life son
You’ve got too many minutes
And not one to waste

You’ll have to leave in the morn
You’ll want to read your own future
But there’s no crystal ball

You’ll want to freeze
And I’ll understand

Go forth with your life son
You’ve got far too few hours
And they will slip by

You’ve got a psychic named no-one
You’ll want to read your own future
But the tarot cards lie

You’ll want to freeze

And you’ll underestimate the pain you’ll go through
Hope the ones that you love, hold on to you

So this is your life son
You’ve made your decision
To side with the unknown

Then when you grow old
You’ll have built your own future
Foundations in soil

And you’ll underestimate the pain you’ll go through
Hope the ones that you love, hold on to you
And you’ll underestimate the beauty you’ll see
So keep your eyes open son, so keep your eyes open

Those goddamn evenings spent away from the ones you love the most
I want to hold your hand, but you’ve grown into your own man
Into your own
Track Name: Malthus
Blue eyed raven,
Following me home
Your midnight wings
Could turn my warm blood colder

And I know your name

So go, away Malthus
I need to sleep tonight
So go, far away

Twenty-ninth spirit
Entering my home
Your bloodless heart
And the dreams that you have stolen

I wish you never started flying out above my roof
(I’ve got no place I can hide in until the raven’s gone)
I slept much better when you weren’t the shadows in my room
(I feel it in the air I breathe I am never alone)
(I’ve got no place I can hide in until the raven’s gone…)

…away Malthus
I need to sleep tonight
So go, far away

So go away Malthus
(So go away)

I wish you never started flying out above my roof
Track Name: Ordinary Man
When I’m buried
More than six feet please
I don’t want to hear their feet above me

Well I’m just an ordinary man
Just typically strong
Yet weak enough to let them push me
And hold me down

The liquor burns my throat
And the smoke blackens my lungs
To change the way that I see the world
And feel the sun

Well I’m just an ordinary man
I waste my life away
I sweat and toil nine to five
Just to make the pay day

I stare into the tube
And listen intently
For all the shit that they sling at me
I’m sedated easily

And I don’t want to change my ways
I’m quite comfortable living in this place
And I’d sell my soul for the cheapest cost
As long as I can sleep when my eyes shut

Well I’m just an ordinary man
I’ll kill for my beliefs
Outcast and mark you as a target
If you don’t agree with me

I’d nail you to the cross
And burn you at the stake
As long as the box that I live in
Isn’t taken away
Track Name: Oh My Electrician
In my mind electrical pulses tell my mouth to speak
Is my mind electrical? Do signals tell my heart to love you?

Are you feeling electric?
Are you feeling?

In my mind electrical pulses tell my feet to move
Is my mind electrical? Do signals tell my heart to love you?
With your body close to mine, a lightening strike hits my spine, it hits my spine

Are you feeling electric?
Are you feeling?

Put your arms around my neck
Put your arms around me
I’ve got my hands upon your hips
Put your arms around me
Put your arms…

You’re oh my electrician!

Are you feeling electric?
Are you feeling?
So lift your feet and quake the earth with me
Track Name: Ache & Wish
I like to picture you sitting by a river
The waters calm as your patience
And you write wishes in the pebbles with your hand

Your laughter breaks to sail across the water
And you’re a few years younger
And paper roses grow on bushes in the sand

Thinking like this makes me ache and wish
That heaven existed and I was there with you
And we could wait for our loved ones to come home

And in the end my tongue was all tied up with emotions
But here we’ll have the time to tell our tales

Thinking like this makes me ache and wish…
Track Name: You Ain't Got Mine
I met a man and he sold luck at only five dollars a pound
I thought luck was free, but hey empty my bank account
So fill my car I’m driving far down every main street in this town
And when I do it, I will leave my windows down

Know my mind is not a well, and no my mind
It‘ll never run dry

Leave it alone
Leave it all alone

I saw a man thought to be wise; you could see it shine through his eyes
Obliged to share, he pushed his thoughts in on mine
My mind was filled with lessons learned and places I had never seen
It left me wondering, is this my life I’m living?

You ain’t got the ink to fill the signature I’m signing
You ain’t got the key to start the engine that I’m driving
You ain’t got the brick to keep the soul that I’ve been housing
You ain’t got mine, you aint got my type
(You ain’t got mine, you aint got my)

Sing the song but know that…
