Track Name: I Only Cry When I'm Alone
been holding this inside
try to keep my head high
breaking down behind the door
when I can’t hide it anymore

invisible as air
hoping you still care
it doesn’t matter where I go
I only cry when I’m alone

I only cry when I’m alone

feeling out of place
planning my escape
it ain’t the truth that sets you free
a perfect smile is all you need

so filter every frame
what is there to gain
it doesn’t matter where I go
I only cry when I’m alone

I’m owning all my insecurities
call em out by name
and watch the demons bleed
they’re tryna hold me to the in between
but oh no

I only cry when I’m alone
Track Name: Upside Down
Upside Down
Sun hanging loud in a ruthless sky
Still peaking through when I close my eyes
But I remember the darkness
When light refused to shine

24 hours and we’re back around
Same old story, turn it upside down
Leave behind your could’ve beens
and we’ll get going somewhere else

Wheels sinking in, captured by the mud
Soaked to the bone, fighting back the flood
But I remember the desert
Where rain refused to fall

24 hours and we’re back around
Same old story, turn it upside down
Leave behind your could’ve beens
and we’ll get going somewhere else
Track Name: Anymore
Everything is spent
Always more give than take
Staring down a stacked deck
Paint a smile on my face

I didn’t choose your game
And I’m not gonna play anymore

Cradle your luxuries
Will it ever be enough?
Try to find the meaning
Lingering above

I didn’t choose your game
And I’m not gonna play anymore

Anymore, your promises
Land on hollow ears
Rules hard as stone
Anymore, I’ll make my own

Call it skill or call it luck
I think I’ve had enough
Rules as hard as stone
Anymore I’ll make my own

Blinded by the unseen
Am I losing my mind?
watch an elusive dream
Disappearing on the horizon

I didn’t choose your game
And I’m not gonna play anymore
Track Name: Tenderhearted
Got a tenderhearted lover who does me good
a little rough around the edges, but don’t let that fool ya
Pours me coffee when the sun comes up
Ooo baby gonna fill my cup

Got a tenderhearted lover who feeds my soul
Knows how to make me smile when I just don’t wanna
Dries my tears in the middle of the night
When we’re close everything is alright

Tenderhearted lover dreaming fast and wild
I’ve heard those old stories, you were a curious child
Grown up to play guitar in a rock and roll band
Turned your back on the backup plan

It’s never gonna be perfect
But I’m still gonna try
The closest I’ll ever get
Is you by my side
All I’m asking is
Please, come on this ride

Tenderhearted lover why you looking sad?
It’s been a rollercoaster year, but it’s the best we’ve had
Even though we couldn’t spring for that econoline van
We’ll roll on hand in hand
Track Name: Growing Wings
Did you feel the lonely winter sway?
Summer turned & walked away
An open letter from the past
Nothing lasts, and that’s ok

You were growing wings
When I heard you sing

What a strange world we live in
What would you change if you could?
Try not to hold on too tightly
Cause the strain ain’t gonna do you no good

Floating to the top for a better view
All this progress, but nothing new
Landscape shifting overhead
But how could I forget?

You were growing wings
When I heard you sing

What a strange world we live in
What would you change if you could?
Try not to hold on too tightly
Cause the strain ain’t gonna do you no good
Track Name: Does It Echo?
Canyon deep and rushing wide
Show me what you hold inside
Does it echo?
Steady as the current pulls
Chart my course
on the overflow

Wanna believe in a better way
Watch the fire turn to rain
Someday the dam will break
And wash it all, wash it all

Pick it up and try again
But my heart is caving
Does it echo?
Inching closer, rocky edge
Blackbirds circle overhead
Are they restless?

Wanna believe in a better way
Watch the fire turn to rain
Someday the dam will break
And wash it all, wash it all
Track Name: Good News
You were talking about towers
I was talking about love
Told me ‘fight the power’
I already was

Wasn’t it enough to feed your ego
Without feeding my despair?
Headlines read like fantasy
How did we get here?

Why can’t it be good news?
I need some good news

Choose yourself a ruler
That only measures what it wants
An inch becomes a mile
And soon north and south are lost

Why can’t it be good news?
I need some good news

Time’s a losing battle
Why waste it on a war?
All these imaginary borders
Who are we fighting for?
Track Name: Evergreen
Evergreen, shelter me
I’m shaking on the inside
I’m shaking on the inside
Steady arms, through pounding storms
always bending, never breaking
I could use some of your patience

never known a heart so strong
beating where you belong
still holding on
when letting go is easy

burning sun, move along
the path is growing wider
following the fire
Scent of rain, wash away
There’s nothing where there once was
There’s nothing where there once was

Never known a heart so strong
Still holding on
When the chaos is taking over
You said letting go is easy

Carry on
Unfolding slowly
Rise from the floor
Trying to understand

Never known a heart so strong
still holding on
Never known a heart so strong
Beating where you belong
Still holding on
when letting go is easy
Track Name: Criminal Tongue
our future for hire
selling for pennies on the dollar
rinse it and repeat
til they believe
scrub but never come clean
hope this is just a bad dream

criminal tongue
with your golden gun
hiding away
but there’s no escape
for such a criminal tongue

all the world’s a cage
so let’s put on a grand display
knock it on its side
with your infinite lies
try, but never fool me
now you’re just making a scene

criminal tongue
with your golden gun
hiding away
there’s no escape
for such a criminal tongue
Track Name: All Good Things
do you get the feeling
that everything is broken
and every word that’s spoken
is lying through its teeth?

there’s no need for understanding
when the plane’s crash landing
and we’re taking friendly fire
while drowning in the sea

all good things must end
time won’t be your friend
if this is great again
then where did we begin?

no time like the present
to kill for my attention
so if that ain’t presidential
then i don’t know what is

fired the old accountant
now we’re showing record profits
while every book is burning
a hole straight through our pockets

all good things must end
time will tell, my friend
cause if this is great again
then where did we begin?

me, I go to bed
and my dreams just keep on rolling
when i wake i’m falling
and landing on my feet

so let’s start a revolution
let’s reach a new conclusion
make anything with beauty
yeah, let’s sell it all
sell it all for free
