Track Name: Henry ('07)
Henry's on the edge and I don't know why
He's standing on a ledge yelling, "I want to die"
But you've got lots to give Henry - You've got a loving wife
Henry's on the edge and I don't know why

He's got three sons and a daughter who love him so
He lives in an old brick house where he watched them grow
Summers at the lake and angels made of snow
But Henry's on the edge, why? I just don't know...

He used to be a doctor - travelled all his life
And though he'd seen the darkness he'd say, "we are the light"
But that was long ago and that was another time
Henry's on the edge and I don't know why

Saw him in the bar - it was earlier tonight
He ordered a round of shots saying, "well here's to life"
I wish I knew what to say, Henry - I wish I knew what to do cause
Standing on that ledge, Henry... don't seem like you
Track Name: Outta Sight
Nothing that you say will change a thing
Not when you’re not saying anything

Oh my... out of sight and out of mind
I can’t remember my name
My... out of sight and out of mind
Time to get back in the game

One day it won’t matter anyway
One day so who cares if you don’t play?

Oh my... out of sight and out of mind
I tried to forget my name
My... out of sight and out of mind
Time to get back in the game

Namaste
Take it for a walk
Namaste
Take it for a walk, take it out...

My... out of sight and out of mind
I can't remember my name
My... out of sight and out of mind
Time to get back in the game
Track Name: Woke Up
Woke up this morning
The sun was in my eyes
Woke up this morning
In my dreams I swear I died
Woke up this morning
I felt you, you were there
Woke up this morning
Held a world that didn’t care

And I want to love you every day, every day
And I want to love you every day, every day

Woke up this morning
I read about the fall
Woke up this morning
The silence said it all
Woke up this morning
You knew me, you were there
Woke up this morning
Kissed a world that wasn't fair

And I want to love you every day, every day
And I want to love you every day, every day
Track Name: Comfort Kills
Then he said, “some days just feel like a waste
Every day I wake, I work, go home, then do it again”
Got me thinking that my life’s slipping away
Could settle for less, everything would be okay
But don’t you remember when living was a thrill?
Comfort kills

Then she said, “I can’t pretend that it’s okay
There’s no way that I can turn my back on what happened today”
Got me thinking ‘bout the times I’ve looked away
All these people with nothing but no one hears or can relate
Broke down in a mall screaming, “can’t you find the will?”
Comfort kills
Track Name: When The Money Runs Out
We were fine
Yeah, we used to say that to ourselves all the time
But the future was sold
Now we’re losing control, now we’re losing it…

On the plains it went down that the lights came up and they all left town
And a man told his sons as they stood in the dust how the west was lost
I think about you all the time
How it don’t make sense how it’s not right
I think about you…

And the summers that we spent at the lake
How they’d end too soon
And the winters that we sang “In the Dark” when it snowed like it should
How the future was sold
Now we’re losing control...

Well it’s boom and then bust and the best of intentions can still end in rust
Pack your bags, tell the boys
Are we losing control? Are we losing it?
I think about you all the time
How it don’t make sense how it’s not right...
I think about you all the time
Will there still be doubt when the money runs out?

On the plains it went down that the lights came up and they all left town
And a man told his sons as they took the last bus how the west was lost
I think about you all the time
How it don’t make sense, how it’s not right...
I think about you all the time
Will there still be doubt? Will there still be...
I think about you all the time
How it don’t make sense, how it’s not right...
I think about you all the time
Will there still be doubt when the money runs out?
Track Name: Who Hurt You
I remember one December I walked you home
Down 109th chasing the lights of the street as we’d go
Nothing was moving but two figures with shadows in tow
Pirouetting over sidewalks and mountains of snow

But who hurt you so bad that you don’t wanna laugh about it anymore?

An April came we chose to rename the flowers in bloom
We spent our May picking Tobiases and George Oscar Bluths
In the forest smiling/singing it, oh oh oh oh
You seemed so silly when you said that you lost your clothes

But who hurt you so bad that you don’t wanna laugh about it anymore?

September showers meant we read as the nights grew cool
Stayed up late to do the homework that they gave us in school
It never mattered that you knew I was eager to please
But when I said that I loved Hepburn you told me to leave

But who hurt you so bad that you don’t wanna laugh about it anymore?
Track Name: Love You Now
It came out of nowhere
A pleasant surprise
And after you confessed it
You made me think my life twice

And now every time I see you smiling my fears melt away
And I know no matter where you go you’re going to give them something to say
Was burning all my bridges but I’m coming round
I couldn’t see you then but I have no doubt
I love you now

And you were courageous
When you fought the hordes
Your wit was contagious
You left them dying for more

But now every time you see me coming you just turn away
Afraid of everything you’ve heard and all the things you think you know I would say
I hear the bells ringing – time is running out
If I’m in your future better shout it out
I love you now

The morning light is breaking – the dew is on the ground
The day is for the taking if we’re not too proud
Standing in my doorway in your mother’s gown
I love you now
Track Name: Death Of A Cynic
Oh you’re such a tease
With your hands in your pockets that’s how you came to me
Told you ‘bout my grudge
Threw your arms in the air and you said, “come get some”

“I bet you couldn’t imagine it
To find something that made you shake at the knees
I bet you couldn’t even fathom it”
It came along and now you’ll have to believe

Watched him as he rolled
When you hate on everything it’s no wonder you’re alone
Told me ‘bout your truce
Well no one here has the corner on the truth

“I bet you couldn’t imagine it
To find something that made you shake at the knees
I bet you couldn’t even fathom it”
It came along and now you’ll have to believe
Track Name: We Are The Light
I’m getting older but I still am young
My life it keep’s changing each day
The wind keeps on blowing
I don’t know where I’m going
Things get different but stay somehow the same

And I want to be there when I can for you
And I hope that you’ll want to be there for me too

Along the way as we play out our lives
We may grow apart over time
But in the darkest of hours, the longest of nights
We’ll sing soft, “we are the light”

I came here so bitter, alone, and afraid
Of things that I could not control
But I stand before you and I know who I am
And I won’t take you for granted no more

Cause I know I’ll always be thinking ‘bout you
And I hope that you’ll be off thinking ‘bout me too (when you’re blue)

Along the edge of a dream that won’t die
We’ll dance slow, old flames burning bright
And in the darkest of hours, the longest of nights
We’ll sing soft, “we are the light”
