about

Track Name: Drifter
Semi automatic pilot never got me to my destination
But sometimes when someone else drives
it's nice to take a little fake vacation
I'll kick back and try to sleep it off
and wake up to realize that I'm lost
I thought disengaged was better than enraged
and that's how these words landed on this page

I found out its insane that I'm here flying a plane
Cause I'm a drifter, I'm a drifter
You called on the phone and you said
You think I'll make it home
But I'm a drifter, I'm a drifter, today

Cruising in a tailspin never sent me in the right direction
Now I see after all the spinning that this mistake necessitates correction
Yeah I'll wake up it's time to take control
Eyes are open time to save my soul
I'll engage, give up my rage
and that's how these words landed on this page


I found out its insane that I'm here flying a plane
Cause I'm a drifter, I'm a drifter
You called on the phone and you said
You think I'll make it home
But I'm a drifter, I'm a drifter, today

I'll be ashamed if we go down in flames
So I promise ill try to learn to fly

I found out its insane that I'm here flying a plane
Cause I'm a drifter, I'm a drifter
You called on the phone and you said
You think I'll make it home
So I'm a drifter no more
Track Name: Touch the Sky
If mind is over matter, what's the matter with my mind?
I'll tell you everything if you can find the time
This head on my shoulder hopes it gets colder
While we're up and down the hill

Me and you we touch the sky
And feel the fires in the night
I've been diggin for something behind the stars
And sometimes I burn in the light
Maybe I looked too hard

There are parts of us I don't understand
And this situation was completely unplanned
Some will summit, some will plummet
And I'm wondering which am I

Me and you we touch the sky
And feel the fires in the night
I've been diggin for something behind the stars
And sometimes I burn in the light
Maybe I looked too hard

If you hold my hand
Choose the right, the left is broken
Take this song as a token
Of all the words I left unspoken

Me and you we touch the sky
And feel the fires in the night
I've been diggin for something behind the stars
And sometimes I burn in the light
Maybe I looked too hard
Track Name: Harmonic
Cuts can be so deep when you don't expect them
Awake you in your sleep if you don't respect them
They take you away to a distant place
They take you away to a distant place

We are harmonic
We are just right in tune
And we will make the greatest melodies
if you'll just come home soon

Nights can be so long without a blanket
But with these simple songs we just might make it
To when you're here next to me
You're almost here next to me

We are harmonic
We are just right in tune
And we will make the greatest melodies
if you'll just come home soon
Track Name: Turn Off My Brain
Who woulda thought I'd wind up in this spot with you again
I guess I forgot all the things I'd been taught about friends
Did you ever think that we'd sit here and shoot the breeze?
A simple game of the catch and the release and

I will turn off my brain
And lay these thoughts to rest
Control the heartbeat in this chest
And I might wait a little while
Till time can cover all these miles
I’ll turn off my brain

Well I guess you can say that the time yesterday was beautiful
I only can pray in a brand new way that it was meaningful
Just let the waves wash over this house of sand
Some distant day will tell to us if it still stands

It keeps running inside my head

I will turn off my brain
And lay these thoughts to rest
Control the heartbeat in this chest
And I might wait a little while
Till time can cover all these miles
I’ll turn off my brain
Track Name: Wall
Now boy don't you go and be a cowboy
You were born to pull the plow, boy

Hey man don't you go to outer space man
Gotta stay here in your place man

I've got anger
I've got anger
It's inside of me and it's hiding me from all the people that I'd like to meet
I've got issues in my tissues
They are part of me they make it hard to see a version of myself I'd like to be
I've got a soul
Yeah I've got a soul

I built a wall and it blocked my view
I built a wall and blamed it on you
You helped it fall when you told the truth
And that influenced my decision to form a demolition crew
I'm gonna tear down the wall that's keeping me from you

I've got anchors
I've got anchors
They're inside of me you keep reminding me whenever I am blowing in the breeze
They are moments,
holy moments
The help me realign but I forget sometimes that they're my friends and not the enemy
I've got a dream
Yeah I've got a dream
I've got a dream

I built a wall and it blocked my view
I built a wall and blamed it on you
You helped it fall when you told the truth
And that influenced my decision to form a demolition crew
I'm gonna tear down the wall that's keeping me from you

I wanna feel what I felt what I knelt, wanna feel what I felt
I wanna feel what I felt when I knelt wanna feel it all

I built a wall and it blocked my view
I built a wall and blamed it on you
You helped it fall when you told the truth
And that influenced my decision to form a demolition crew
I'm gonna tear down the wall that's keeping me from you

Hey man
You found your place man
