Track Name: The Fall
Well it’s a long way down
Before you hit the ground
But maybe time will tell you the fall was worth it
Worth it all

And it’s a one way track
If you keep looking back
And never stop to check if I’m standing right there
With you

Hide yourself from all that heartache
Listen to me there’s another way
Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake
Let it bend before it breaks

And it’s a long road home
But you are not alone
Come with me I know the fall is worth it all
I know it’s worth it all

Hide yourself from all that heartache
Listen to me there’s another way
Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake
Let it bend before it breaks

You’ve got a book of rules
To stop me from breaking through
You’ve got a lock upon your soul
Now I’ll take you to the edge
If you’ll just take my hand
And join me in the fall

Hide yourself from all that heartache
Listen to me there’s another way
Now if you’re thinking love is a mistake
Let it bend before it breaks
Let it bend before it breaks
Track Name: A Quieter Scene
Sinking, putting both feet forward
Feel you barely brush my skin
Hear it coming through the floorboards
Waiting, we’ve barely jumped in

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene

Pacing, take it slow, I promised
Wonder, are we stalled instead?
Time now for that departing kiss
Hating that I’m so stuck inside my head

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone in a quieter scene

Give me a knife to cut the tension
Give me a lost signal
Give me a reason to continue and a hand that I can hold
Give me a month to grow accustomed
Give me a heartfelt cue
Give me a sign that it’s alright for me
A sign that it’s alright for me
A sign that it’s alright for me to give everything to you

I lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
The nightbirds won’t leave me alone
Lay here and silently hope that I’m not awake on my own
But I know I’m always alone in a quieter scene
Track Name: Paved With Good Intent
I paved this road with good intent
I paved this road with good intent
My back is broken and my body’s spent
But I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent

Now these flames do burn, these flames do burn
My heart is blistered cause I never learned
And my hands are mangled from the tricks I’ve turned
These flames do burn, oh yes, these flames do burn

My work is long and my mouth is dry
My eyes too weak to see that sky
I meant no harm, baby, when I lied
My work is long, my work is long and my mouth is dry

And the path is hidden on this blacktop road
My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul
And I’ll take this tunnel over that light
Cause that sun it blinds me
Oh that sun is much too bright

And I hear that call, yes, I hear that call
I got no fight left in me, I’ve lost it all
Hand over fist, baby, I will crawl
Cause I hear that call, oh yes, I hear that call

And the path is hidden on this blacktop road
My feet leave no mark of my wanderin’ soul
And I’ll take this tunnel over that light
Cause that sun it blinds me
Oh that sun is much too bright

I won’t look back when the world dies
I’ll walk this blacktop with my head held high
Now I know it burns, but at least I tried
I won’t look back, I won’t look back when this world dies

Cause I paved this road with good intent
I paved this road with good intent
Now my back is broken and my body’s spent
I paved this road, I paved this road with good intent
Track Name: Waterlogged
The North becomes Atlantis
And the South is flyin’ trees
And the West is hidin’ miners
And the East can barely breathe

The peacekeepers they can rally
But they can’t load up enough fire
And the water’s turnin’ orange
While the rivers become wider

The roof is flyin’ over
And the traffic is a show
All along the lake
Even the birds are forced to row

And the houses turn to birthday cakes
So many candles in the wind
While the princes run for cover
And the bloomers they learn to swim

Now the water’s rising
But the sky won’t drink
Yeah the water’s rising

Some can take all the downpour
And waterlog all their dreams
Pull some bait out of the freezer
And wade up right through to the knees

Toss a line into the basement
On a boat from the front door
Then hook a bass
That’s big enough to have a thirteenth floor

Now the water’s rising
But the sky won’t drink
Yeah the water’s rising
Track Name: Can't Be Your Jesus
I can be your Superman
Anything you want I can build it with my hands
I’ll show you worlds that you ain’t never seen
I’ll write you a story and give it life on the screen

I can promise you a smile
When you feel down we can dance here for awhile
I’ll buy you every diamond that I can
But I’ll never be anything more than I am

No I can’t be your Jesus tonight
I can’t be your Jesus tonight
I got my share of good words
But I sure ain’t no Lord
And I can’t be your Jesus tonight

I’ll give you wonder and give you light
But Revelations are a little out of sight
I’ll cook you dinner if that’s your wish
But I can’t make a feast out of just two fish

No I can’t be your Jesus tonight
I can’t be your Jesus tonight
I got my share of good words
But I sure ain’t no Lord
And I can’t be your Jesus tonight

I know I can’t compare to the man in your soul
I know without him you just won’t feel whole
But I’ll be waitin’ on down the line
If you’re ever feelin’ less divine

Said I got my share of good words
But I sure ain’t no Lord
And I can’t be your Jesus tonight
