Track Name: Fishing For Seagulls
What I got goin' now, I guess its alright.
I wonder what everyone really thinks of me, sometimes.

When did it get so outta hand, i got to reel it back in
Take some commands, I gotta do what I'm told,
To get what I need from this world.

What she wanted from me, was a little bit of faith you see?
What she got, it was really quite the opposite of that.

When did it get so outta hand, I got to reel it back in
Take some commands, I gotta do what I'm told,
To get what I need from this world.

Feelin better now, cope with all the pain.
Feelin better now, the sun prevails the rain.
Track Name: Brittle-Wing
Oh my darling, with the brittle wing.
We're not done with you, quite yet.

Please dont leave the nest,
Sit and have a rest.

We're so full of regrets and worms
We just cant let you go so soon.

Please dont leave the nest,
Sit and have a rest.

ooooooooooooooohoohhohohooo

Please dont leave the nest
Sit and have a rest.
Bar your common sense,
pass this last test.
Track Name: Chicago Sunroof
Some people get it and some dont
For many it just bleeds through
They know just how they wanna act
They know just what to do

It must be so nice to sit and dream like you're Jim Morrison
In a trance

But this life just isnt like that
You cant just coast on to
Imaginary paradise
With nothing to prove

It'd be so nice to sit and dream like you're Jim Morrison
In a trance
Track Name: So New
Come on outta your shell, its a Friday night
No need to be actin' so uptight
Hope's in the air, cant you feel it too?
Me n' the boys'll be out til noontime tomorrow
Take my hand, let down your sorrows.

I have a gift, i made it for you,
We dont have to fool around so soon
If you dont wanna, lets take a swim in the water.

Sandy are you comin' to the game tonight?
If you dont, I swear I might sit down and cry.
Sandy, look into mine eyes, inside em is a picture of you
Can stay that way if you want it to.

This feels so new, didnt think I'd understand so soon
What you meant to me
What you meant to me.
Bliss, but so obtuse, who do these words even belong to?
Dont let the world get to me.
Dont let the world get to me.
Track Name: Shady Acres
I will abide, when its time.
And faith is running still.
I hope that at least I'll be somewhere warm
Til they take me away.
And all of my memories.
I'll keep them deep within.

Good luck with all of that
Good luck, my friend, (when you have)
Electricity runnin through all that remains.

Give in, you'll be comatose.
Give in, sell what you have left.
I never wanted that much, its a shame I couldn't keep it up
Now I'm sittin' here so blue, at Shady Acres and I'm due
For the shock that'll neutralize me, and all I hope is that i will be free
From all these demon thoughts, they separate and cause my pain.
Track Name: Stupid In Love
I've had enough of being someone's baggage, such a weight,
I wanna find myself a band and see the states.
We will go down south and see the whole damnation
Climb on rooftops, meet some girls and fall in love with vacation.

I'm so stupid in love

Sick of barring holds and always backing down,
I wanna face the world with gusto and be found,
By someone who is rare and loves me for my ways
Spittin', smokin, talkin' shit and always lookin to chase.

I'm so stupid in love.
Track Name: Rises
Inside, save me.
Track Name: State of Affairs
Have you ever looked at it this way?
Through the lenses of curious cats and children when they misbehave.
Will I ever look at it another way?
Cant remember the last goal I set for myself that i obeyed
Cant remember the last goal I set for myself that i obeyed.

I never get mine,
Lappin' up whats left of my independence, throwin out the line.
This talk is over,
Drop me off at the next stop babe,
I'll be beggin til the end of mine.
Drop me off at the next stop babe
I'll be beggin til the end of time.

Wake me to be with like-minded souls.
Track Name: Painbirds (An Ode to Linkous)
We took victory laps in our makeshift hospital gowns,
We galloped through golden days on horses that ate oats doused in gasoline.
We had competitions to see whose leg would fall asleep the fastest,
and dreamed for decades about the homecoming queen.
Let all those Pain-Birds out.
-Ryan Cameron
Track Name: Contented.
It never felt so much like a disease,
By a retreating dream figured as such a tease.
As when i was beautifully tormented
We suffer so to find ourselves contented.

Though my thoughts drifted like a feather,
My words were very sharp so as to sever
To test your emotions and what they weather,
But I thought them so dull and surfaced them never
but I thought them so dull and surfaced them never.
-James Maclean
