I said, I’m just trying to get it right

then you’ll never change (never change)
grow, grow, grow
till they bury your bones
and then rearrange (rearrange)

Ima keep on rockin till I die, till I die, yeah
hold me like a finger in the fire, in the fire, yeah
on and on I’m singin “I don’t mind, I don’t mind” yeah
Ima keep on rockin till I die, till I die

3.141592653589
tell your friends to get it right
I said, tell your friend to get it right

I’m just trying to get it right
I said, I’m just trying to get it right

Ima keep on rockin till I die, till I die

Meshach and Abednego and I in the fire, yeah
oh the flames are gettin high, getting high, yeah
are we singing “Adonai, Adonai” yeah
Ima keep on rockin till I die, till I die
Track Name: Dirty Work
Something new was clear to me
when I laid in the dark
I may know life's great mysteries
but I don't know my heart

oh, foolish boy
foolish boy
tell me what you've become

so do your dirty work
think about it kid, is it worth what you're giving up?
what about me?
what about me?
what about me?
yeah, what about me?

we make ships to sail the sea
glass to see the stars
but how can we be wise if we're
still strangers to our hearts?

oh, foolish boy
foolish boy
tell me what you've become

in your eyes, you're dumbstruck
you're getting by with some dumb luck
you change your mind
you're running all the time
until you bring yourself down
Track Name: Boy
I met a man with a broken dream
talking bout how it used to be
he said, “boy do it while you can,
cause nothing good’s waiting at the end”

our bodies sing when our heads are still
late at night’s when I start to feel that nothing’s right
I knew the words when I had a song
but everything’s quiet when you’re gone

I’m just a boy falling over myself
oh, I got lost in the material
trying to get back to the moment I fell for you

we do the dance and we make a mess
keep it up till we lose our breath
sit back and think it through,
there’s nothing left for me to do

don’t be so afraid to make mistakes
we’re remembered by the messes that we make (so let’s make them all)
the tricky rhythm that you fake, you fake,
don’t mean a thing until you start to fall
Track Name: Sorry 2.0
Even when
the empress sung
the anthem of the locals she did not belong

So it goes
with me and you
I will never understand the things you do

this is just a version of I'm sorry
oh my love was strange and made you change your mind
can't you hear the chorus of "I'm sorry"
I won't fake the feeling just to make you mine

late at night
I hear the sound
a hundred fleshy hammers nail their lovin' down
so when you left
I knew you would
I just don't know how to make you stay for good

(give a little)
Track Name: Cats
Please don't hurt my friend
he don't understand
please take me instead
just please don't hurt my friend

Please don't hurt my friend
hold your hungry hands
I can't stop my heart from believing
take my sleep but don't take my dreaming
please don't hurt my friend

appreciate my woe

every single soul's just a toll you gotta pay when you die
a debt you've been collecting every second of your miserable life
cats don't like me thinking so they try to make me feel like it's wrong
tiny bits of doubt will drown the loudest voices out with a song
Track Name: Those Days Are Gone
those days are gone
when I felt
like I was next to you
oh something’s wrong
it’s strange how we change
the way we do
where we belong
we were lost and I
never knew
those days are gone
those days are gone

I’m feeling like a ghost, yeah
bright white, one color at the most, yeah
come tie tie tie me like a noose, yeah
don’t worry
be happy
those days are gone

and we laughed
we we let em go
oh we were wrong
about ourselves
but now we know
you were the sun
then you’re dirt
now you’re snow
those days are gone
those days are gone

I feel like your lovin’ it gets me down
Track Name: Heaven's Halberd
I know, I know, I know
I ain’t ever gonna be your man
I said oh,
I’m good on my own

I lie, I cheat, I steal
but I ain’t ever found a love like this
I can’t lie
you know it gets me by

(somebody said)
heaven is a crowded bed
I’m dyin to be alone
so leave me on the altar
heaven don’t turn your head
I’m tryin to be a stone
walkin on the water

I know, I know, I know
I ain’t ever gonna understand
I said oh,
what’s there to know?

I lie, I cheat, I steal
but I ain’t ever found a love like this
but I try
you know it gets me by

blue, black, green
all the colors bleed
into one dark scene
after all
Track Name: Wide Awake
wide awake
fast asleep
all I am
is a song, I sing consistently

(inconsistently)

when I left myself
I saw the milky way
we’re a star at the end of an arm
I know is throwing us away

there’s no holy war
fought over our souls
the devils and the gods have forgotten
we existed long ago
Track Name: How Low
am I like a bad dream
did I make you feel,
like you were the ghost
and I was real?
was I real?

am I like your last dream?
am I still the same?
something in your eyes said
that I changed

how low?

am I one of god’s dreams
he’s having of himself?
am I a reflection
of someone else?

am I just a sad dream?
am I calling in the dark?
I slowly fade away
the days
when we’re apart

did you even notice me
in the background?
are you missing me so easily?
I’m calling out…
Track Name: Living Honestly
oh, the storm has come again
we’re dancing in the eyes of hurricanes
we do not fear the temporary

though there are so very few
of us left, I still believe in you
I still believe in you, and you, and you

this is what you get
my inspiration
everyone was wrong but
you still believe
this is what I am just
a sad example
this is what you get for
living honestly

so, “in sickness and in health”
the holy vows I whispered to myself
but never dared to speak aloud

oh, the angle of your knees
I memorized you, my isosceles
the shape, the lines, the emptiness inside

do you notice me?
