Track Name: Dance Aiden Dance
Call me pretty boy
But inside’s ugly
Talking to myself
Tell me that I’m
Making something,
Of my life
I think I am
I’m working on it
So get off my back man

Wake up early
Ignore the stress
Don’t need to worry
I can’t make a bigger mess
Of your heart
It’s long been dead
I took it by the face
And I shot it in the head
That’s it
Ignore the stress

I’m just selfish
No one to blame
I
Track Name: Straight Up Love Song
I met the perfect girl today
The only problem is
She lives so far away
Across the sea
And through her age
Why must she live so far away?

I think that I
Should get a girl like you ooo oo oo
Someone who makes me go crazy
With everything you do
I’ve searched so far and wide
But nothing could be found
Oh girl,
You make my heart spin around

My friends make fun of it
But I could care less
‘Cause you are the girl for me
I believe that, oh yes
Track Name: The One About Thinking
A quiet place you’ll find it
Where your heart belongs.
Home
Where you last left off

I remember sometimes
I’d be drifting off inside
And remember some things
Too powerful for my mind

Think slow
You don’t have to let it go

Slowly get the feeling
I’m better off alone
Tired
Of only mentally leaving home

I’m always seeing places
I could swear I’ve seen before
And then I start to miss them
And then I long for more

So show me how to
Make it back there
To that place inside my mind
Where thoughts still hold a meaning
I thought had been lost to time

So show me how to feel it in me
To feel it in me like I did before,
Show me how to feel it in me
To feel it in me like I did before

Slowly get the feeling
I’m better off alone
Tired
Of only mentally leaving home
Track Name: Take Your Time
I feel like I'm on top of the world
If we say that's the
Hill down the street and
I'm so above all your little problems
Even though I've got my own and
I just can't solve them
So I'll act like they've been resolved then
Go on without a care
Lookin' down from my little hill

This time I'll get it right and
This time I won't say, "goodbye"
It's all a part of your plan
But I just can't seem
To see things clearly like I'm
Stuck in a haze of uncertainty and
I just want to be worth
Someone's time

Woah oh oh oh oh

I'm comin' up on a red light
But I'm hopin' she turns green
'Cus I'm not cut out for that life
I'm not one for takin’ my time
Oh, I‘m not one for takin’ my time

Slow down, slow down
To see things clearly can we?

Take your time, take your time
Track Name: Natalie
Is it alright if I call you Natalie?
is it alright if I call you Natalie?
It came as a surprise
When I looked in your eyes
Just one ring
And I’ll be fine

Deep, deep, down
In the color of your eyes
I can see you wear
No cheap disguise
I fix my hair though we just met
But you don’t mind, you don’t mind

Said its something bout your smile
That I haven’t seen in awhile
And it’s nice
Does it mean something
When she wants to
Touch you twice?
Oh yeah
Track Name: PHD
So why do we fight?
The stronger always comes out on top
But it doesn't mean they’re right
Oh, whoa
We’re under control
Oh, whoa
We’re under control

Spoil me take my fun
All my actions make me numb
Take all the crippled people
And label them dumb

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it?
Oh, the people they cry

I’m sorry if I caused
You to stumble
I hope now I’m holy enough
And humble

Can you feel it?
Yeah
Can you feel it?
Yeah
Oh, the people they cry
Oh, the people cry
Track Name: I Have One
No baby’s, no love
What is excitement?
No baby’s, no love
What is a thought?

Close calls
Thank God
For bloody fingernails.
These walls
Feel good
Around me, yeah

Cool summer breeze
An ache’n in my knees
From the shack wagon
This song’s about
My cat
Because i have one
This kinda sucks
‘Cause now I have fleas
Where I don’t want them
I hope this song
Makes you feel wrong
Makes you feel wrong
Feel wrong, feel wrong
Inside
Track Name: Tidals Pt. 1
Ring around my finger
You shine like the tile
I’d do anything to
See my sink smile
Roll down the paper
Hope it wipes me clean
Always wondered what,
a mirror’s seen

Door stoppy thingy
Is slammed through the door
They decided that they won’t
Take it no more
Waves are broken
And tidals have crashed
I never got to tell him
To kiss my ass
Track Name: Rainwalk
How it shuts out the voices
Pulling at my hair
How it kills evil parts of me
How it makes me aware

Hot damn
Listen to it sing
Like a blanket, like a tomb
And it’s still ringing

Lament, those who don’t escape
World’s just a whisper now
Up among the grass
Bless it as it speaks to you
Rainwalk
And miss it when it haunts you after

Let it sing in my conscious
Let it numb my throbbing head
Let it wipe away my bleeding
Keep it safe beside my bed
Track Name: School +
Lets give off
A mystic impression
As I follow you
Down the bridge

Now we’re jumping out
Of school bus windows
Using bags to break our fall

Library
In a sunny daze
But I’m getting lost
In the summer haze

Watch their eyes now
Closer, closer
Radios on
Their minds all gone

But I found the book
In the familiar room
Covered in grey
Paper’s tomb

Then I was caught for being fast
Locked in the room
With the plastic bed
Used my knife to
Crawl out the window
He and I running up the hill

But I never leave school
One way or another
Wake, dead, or dreaming
You’ll find me there
I’m the tool
The void’s my instructor
And it’s not just my imagination

Climb the temple
In the massive space
The steps are people
And I can see his face

Cross the field
Where the children play
Someone’s hurt
But home’s so close

Coming down
It’s morning now
When I fall back in
I hit the ground

So I travel to
The overgrown tower
And hide in the top
Where the night time lasts
The shadows open
The doors and crawl
They act so busy
Can you see them now?

But I never leave school
One way or another
Awake, dead, or dreaming
You’ll find me there
I’m the tool
The void’s my instructor
Everything I learn is from him
And school is a metaphor
Track Name: She Don't Need Me
When I go outside the sun looks
Just a little pale
And I can’t find the words to describe
Exactly how I feel

Yeah

She don’t need me
She don’t need me
No she don’t need me no more
And when I go outside the sun looks
Just a little pale
And I can’t find the words to describe
Exactly how I feel

She, don’t, need me
No she, don’t, need me no more

Hey! Hey! Hey?
She don’t need me no more
Track Name: Zorth
She’s just a another girl
Tryin’ to make a life
Another pretty face
Lost and alone

She’s lookin’ for someone
To hold her tight
She’s lookin’ for
The right guy to walk on by
And every single day
She goes on without him
She says
Another little goodbye

He’s just a lonely boy
Lookin’ for someone to love
And he would have met her today
Had he not been so shy

He’s lookin’ for someone
To show his love to
He’s lookin’ for that girl
That he can hold tight
And he walked
Right by her today with nothin’
Left to say but:
“Eh, the moment wasn’t right”

He would have met her today and
He would have met her today and
He would have met her today and
They would be married

He would have met her today and
He would have met her today and
He would have met her today
Had he not been so shy.
Track Name: The River Song
15. The River Song

By the river side we will play
By the river side we will lay
By the river side we will shove
By the river side

By the river side we will play
By the river side we will lay
By the river side we will shove
By the river side we will love

Play the river song
By the river side
