Track Name: Too Brave To Die
Ten straight days in a room by myself
Questioning the state of my mental health
I flutter my wings but I'm too afraid to fly
Terrified of living
Too brave to die

Tried to stay sober
Didn't make it too far
Eighteen hours and I'm heading back to the bar
Trying not to fantasize about crashing my car
Wheels on the white lines
Eyes on the stars

Every night I have to fight
The ghost in me
Constantly in the debate
life in hell or heaven in a grave

Late one night the wine was running low
I finally felt a tug on my little heart radio
When I thought of my brother trying to tell his son how to say goodbye
Blubbering like a baby, squeezing grease from his eyes

(Chorus)

All my blood would feel the flood of shame on their name
And all of the love they once had for you would be replaced
With your same pain

(Chorus)
Track Name: Sorry
I'm sorry, so sorry
For what I done, or what I didn't do
My heart is on your pillow case
Do with it what you will

I tried so futilely to right all of the wrongs
By singing you I'm sorry in these stupid fucking songs
But you know that I'll still love you
Even though your mercy is gone
Track Name: On Cold Stone
Before the rain came I met a sweet thing
She changed everything but my name
Opened my eyes, mended my wounds
And showed me how my heart could move
Before she went away she spent a thousand days
Spinning it around like a top
And when the news came, I finally knew pain
When I felt that spinning stop

(Chorus)
On cold stone
Out in the rain
I'll spin this top
On her grave

Standing in the rain while the seasons change
With nothing but my hollow name
Nothing left to fear, I traded all tears
For a new mirror and an old shoe box
Filled with her pictures and letters
And a rose that knows the tune of wilting alone
And the remnants of her scent still lingers on the letters
In the box where the flower fades

(Chorus)

Since shes been gone, I've been trying to get a move on
But I just can't find the strength in me to leave
Been cemented in this ditch, I've barely moved an inch
It seems my feet they don't obey me
Then Adam showed me his brand new tattoo
He said the world don't stop turning just for you
Yeah, love can jade you and stain your heart blue
But Jack, it still moves

(Chorus)
Track Name: Carving
Hands dance on a thin silver line
Infatuated fingers crawl up and down your evening spine
And I trace your lips
And surf your hips
And drink in this moment while we exist

I'm carving my heart into your shape
For when our lives change
Or if my mind fades
Then until my dying day I will
Have you some place

And you let your hair down
You let your hair down
You let your hair
Down on me and the feeling

Falls all over me
Falls all over me
Falls all over me

I'm feeling something like a new born king
Like I'm right where I'm supposed to be
Slowly rocking on a tire swing
Beneath the baby green canopy of your eyes
And the maple leaves

The hearts your soul's radio
You better tune in to the signal
It will let you know your not alone
It'll beat on you when its whole

I feel it beating on me beating me
beating on me beating on me
I feel you

Fall all over me
Fall all over me
You fall all over me

I'm carving my heart into your shape
For when our lives change
Or if my mind fades
Then until my dying day I will
Have you some place
Track Name: Blue Feathers
I first saw your feathers in an old dressing room
My eyes were scratching at the pinks and the blues
Felt an old dream come knocking but I didn't let it in
Told the miner in my heart not to dig here again

Broken voices sigh in my head on this hard wooden floor
Only fools close their eyes when the light is knocking on the door
Blue feathers fade into the floor
Blue feathers fade into the floor

Heard a jackal sing a tune about roaming around
In a cold dank dark world underneath the ground
No feathers or pink lips or greedy old men
No light to miss if you never let it in

Broken voices sigh in my head on this hard wooden floor
Only fools close their eyes when the light is knocking on the door
Blue feathers fade into the floor
Blue feathers fade into the floor
