Track Name: You're All That's Left
Stars come out from nowhere
Momentary, still coming around
Take a vow, be somewhere
For you're able, still running along

Don't hold on for no one
Second coming, still coming along
One more day lights up somewhere
City veil still going on down

You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here

Walk on passion, turn to action
Sign your naval, still coming along
Make some time through the night
Running fables, still going around

You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here
You're all that's left of me here
You're all, you’re all
That's left to be here
You're all that's left of me here
Track Name: How Will You Know?
It's on the wrong track
It's on the wrong track baby
It's on the wrong track from everything
that's all about
You're at the right place
and the right time baby
You're in the right sign for everyone
that comes around

How will you know my name?
How will you know my style?
How will you know my game?
How will you know my life?

You're on the wrong side
at the wrong night baby
You're on the wrong side of every ring
they're putting on
We're in the right space
and the right mind baby
We're on the right train for everywhere
that's going on

How will you know my name?
How will you know my style?
How will you know my game?
How will you know my lines?
How will you know my name?
How will you know my style?
How will you know my game?
How will you know my life?
Track Name: Don't Ask
Don't ask; it is around you
So still, it will become true
So cool, it can amount to (this)

Don't talk; it is around you
So steep, it will surround too
Go advertise when you're through
Don't know it is around you

Don't ask
Don't ask
Track Name: Triana
When you get to the top of it
When you get to the bottom of it
When you get through the bottom of it
When you get to

It was a seed, it came from the need to be received
Heavy metal hearts and winter parks soar along above the sea
Make some more space with me
Looking at you, and what we never thought
could be true give it another shout
You're going to fly with her
Stay tuned, it's gonna preserve

When you get to the bottom of it
When you get to the top of it
When you get through the top of it
When you get to

It was a dream, it came from the stream in every gene
Dandelion lights and endless nights
spread out, seasons coming through
Catch up with a wave for you will be right here my friend
One day we'll see it pretend to get out of the frozen ground
up from the weight of bigger sounds
And now it will not stand or lie
Someday we will be riding high
above the fruited plains, far from the driving rain

Triana, Triana, Triana, Triana

Stay with me this time
Stay with me this time
Stay with me this time

Triana, Triana
Track Name: Right As Rain
They call for you when you’re innocent
Stay long
Run ashore to reconnect the sound
Wave on
Introducing spirits having flown
Say sun
To reconsider stayin'
Stay true to you

Wait up for a minute off the ground
Stay strong
Under fifteen, into endless song
Pray found
To reason if you're blowin' in the wind
Lay down
Do you reconsider?
Stay new to you

It’s right, as right as rain
It’s right, so right as shame
It’s right, as right as pain
It’s right, all right as rain

They cover you when they're incomplete
Stay wrong
Deconstruction getting very steep
Stay through to you

It’s right, as right as rain
It’s right, so right as shame
It’s right, as right as pain
It’s right, all right as rain
Track Name: She's Not In Love
I’m coming to your town
in a carnival of new
And seein' Maggie’s farm
grow over what we do

I’m riding to your state
on a bicycle for two
And down the boulevard
in a photograph of you

She’s not in love with you
She’s in love with me
She’s not in love with you
She’s in love with me

I’m lookin' to your moon
on a satellite of love
And stealin' Maggie's charm
Be coming from above

She’s not in love with you
She's in love with me
She’s not in love with you
She’s in love with me

The shape I'm in, yeah
In this ship of fools
Stay with me
(I'll stay with you)
Track Name: Paint The Town
They've taken away the seventies
We're gonna paint the town
They're cheapening the century
We're gonna paint the town

It's no ordinary day within my home
It's no ordinary way

They've given away the mystery
We're gonna paint the town
They're stealing our democracy
We're gonna paint the town

It's no ordinary day within my home
It's no ordinary day
It's no ordinary day without my home
It's no ordinary way
Track Name: One Day I'll Be There
One day you'll be here
One day we will seek
Storms sent to be near
Somehow you may see
Somewhere to believe
One name I will hear
Homeless to be home
And honey strong

One day I'll be there
There's more than 1 way out of here
One day I'll be square
There's more than 1 way to be clear

One day you'll be sound
One day we will see
Someone to be one
Somewhere to believe
One day I'll be song
And we'll go dancing right out of here
Someday we'll go on
And one and one is near

One day I'll be there
There's more than 1 way out of here
One day I'll be square
There's more than 1 way to be clear
One day I'll be gone
There's more than 1 way out of here
Some day we'll belong
There's more than 1 way to be near
Track Name: Indebted To You
No more encore
Stuck to the ally, come away
How lost are
down in the valley some day

Gone for ours
Once to see battle, crawl away
Now thoughts are
longing to reach up yesterday

I feel indebted to you
I feel awake
I feel indebted to you
I feel away

Love me after
all that we have is gone away
Tell ourselves
one reason standing for today

I feel indebted to you
I feel away
I feel indebted to you
I feel awake
I feel indebted to you
I feel awake
I feel indebted to you
I feel away
Track Name: Something That We Need
What will show is a wounded scar
And memory lanes peak from afar
I felt the law, it can steal 'ya
Hands in the air and goodbye fever

If duty's come like a shooting star
At Gravity Lake you've gone too far
Then we shall know to come and see you
A planted mistake, but it’s all real

Something that we need to know
Something that we need to show
Something that we need to be
Something that we need to see
Something that we need to know
Something that we need to show
Something that we need to feel
Something that we need
