Track Name: You Are The Forest
These trees are bent and torn
The veins of their core
Are ripped out, and tangled across the floor
The harsh side of nature
Of which i adore
Taking comfort from the thorns

Say what you need
I'm not here to think
Say what you feel
And i will watch you sleep
For one last time

You know just as i
These trees focus best in the light
I'm not trying to bend the rules
Magnifying all that's obtuse
Feel the rush of blood to my head
And i know i've been made a fool

Say what you need
I'm not here to think
Say what you feel
And i will watch you sleep
For one last time

Because you are the forest, it's true
And i'm looking through the leaves just like i look through you.
There too high up, i'm too far down
As ever my feet don't leave the ground
You are the forest, it's true.

And i wish you weren't
But, you are the forest.
Track Name: Common Sense
Don't worry about the boy
He'll grow in his own time
I know he may seem lost
But he will be ok
He just doesn't want to throw
All of his hard work away

It takes a second to know
But it takes longer to learn
That you don't always have to do it alone

You're over reacting again
And it doesn't have to take long to regain
Now all of these fallen, searching pieces,
That make up what he comprehends
And it'll all be over before you can say
Which way does he turn
Will he ever be ok
He doesn't need a lecture
He just needs common sense

So see what it is you want to see
And it'll be just more than me
Because you require
A straight faced liar
And that is just not me
And now you know me all too well
For this to ever sell
So don't expect a miracle
Expect it satirical


You're over reacting again
And it doesn't have to take long to regain
Now all of these fallen, searching pieces,
That make up what he comprehends
And it'll all be over before you can say
Which way does he turn
Will he ever be ok
Track Name: The River
Let's go sit down by the river
Me and my best friend
I see tents and smoke in the distance
I see acres of lands between me and fear

We're walking down towards the river
Me and my best friend
And as i dip myself into the water
Free myself of all that is tense
For these moments, i digress

You know
You know
You know just where to find me
You know
You know
You know i'll be down by the river
Track Name: Freefall
My heart beats
With the rhythm of a drum
It's been so long
Since love tangled my spine
Brought me back home
Where i don't sleep alone
Where we breath as one
On our sides
This could be
A miracle
This should be
It all

We're in freefall
We're in freefall

This just shows
It never goes
As we rush towards
This waterfall
We're sinking further
We're plunging deeper
It's beautiful

We're in freefall
We're in freefall

Take your time
Track Name: Lullaby
Don't fret
The night's still young
There's plenty of darkness here
So i'll carry on
Today is now tomorrow
And i should have known
That i'd still be up at this hour
On my own

This is my lullaby
I sing so i can rest my eyes
But not too loud
The house is sleeping
