Track Name: See You
I saw you with another
You're baptizing my brother
This shouldn't be my cross to bear
I saw you on the weekend
My heart, it started sinking
This shouldn't be my cross to bear
I heard you on the line and I wanted to cry
You said "The way you live your life,
man, it will pass you by"
I said I saw you with another
This shouldn't be my cross to bear

Now I'm trying to save you
I said look at yourself, then look at me
Who are you?
You said "I'm trying to be
the father you always wanted me to be"
Well twenty-one years sounds a little too late
Track Name: Drown Me in the Water Temple
I hear the voices disagreeing
Arguing inside my head
I try my best just to ignore them
But it don't help being indifferent
Capturing a memory
Takes priority over the present
At least for me it does
Not consciously, but a reflection
Through my actions

The water's rising
I don't mind drowning
My lungs are filling
I don't mind choking
On your love

Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be all collide
I don't mind if you're tired, if you're going to bed
Turn off the lights, stay awhile
Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be
They all collide
When you wake up we won't be in Jersey
Breaching the line, we stayed awhile

Don't look at me that way
Don't smile at me that way
'cause I'm not coming home
If you want me stay
Just say you want me to say
So I can have that moment for when I'm gone
When I'm gone

Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be all collide
I don't mind if you're tired, if you're going to bed
Turn off the lights, stay awhile
Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be
They all collide
When you wake up we won't be in Jersey
Breaching the line, we stayed awhile
Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be
They all collide
Who I was, who I am and who I wanna be
They all collide

The water's rising
I don't mind drowning
My lungs are filling
I don't mind choking
On your love
Track Name: I'm Not Going to Raise My Voice
We quit smoking on the same pack of cigarettes
The incandescent light faded out when the last match was
Lit in your driveway we left ashes in the hallway
As if we scattered someone important

And I'm not okay searching in the dark
For that old skin we shed when we were too young

In a cardboard box with no holes

If I find that bleating light
Inside a lightning bug out in the yard
I'll put it in the window as a guide
To help you arrive
Back to the place where you used to put your feet up
The place where we could finally be us

I'm getting desperate
(That's what my friends said)

You got lost on the drive home
You've never done that before
Said that God sent you on a search for the person you once were
Built yourself off a lie, played it off as a cry for help
You never did so well
No, you never did too well

And if you wanna shake hands with the devil
Give him my number I got something to sell
These are the last blueprints in my jacket pocket
These are the last maps of hell
I cut them up and folded them precisely
Hid them in our bedroom, you couldn't tell
You never did too well
We never did so well

If I find that bleating light
Inside a lightning bug out in the yard
I'll put it in the window as a guide
To help you arrive
Back to the place where you used to put your feet up
The place where we could finally be us
Track Name: A Letter To Judas
Go away moon, I'm sorry again
I gave all my money away
To someone I called a friend
And all I got is this guitar,
my fingertips,
the sound of birds in the yard
And what I wanted to be a beautiful thing
Only hurt, and God it stings

Well I'm not down and I'm not proud
Of the way you ended up so irresponsible
You just chase the taste from your mouth
Who you are in the night just bubbled up and drowned
Everyday I sit and wait, it was my mistake. Am I the one to blame?
Can you help me out? Can you make it right?
I'm heading to the back porch just strike up a light

I'm dropping cigarettes on the next roof
Having liars look like saints compared to you
Dropping passion in the backs of cars untrue
Urban legends that you just could never prove
Do you think it's something I would just let go?
Be complacent with this small town and house shows?
Everybody in this town's a fucking joke
Hiding under all the ribbons in their souls
And I'm not coming back here
That doesn’t really mean I'm going anywhere
If you wanna be that guy,
If you wanna say goodbye,
If you wanna change your life,
It's in your hands and not mine.

And they say that "Home is where the heart is"
Well what happens to your heart if you find it when you're homeless?
Right from the start, I trusted you
I'm sorry about all the shit that you’ve been through
That doesn’t excuse the way you act
We're all damaged on the inside
That should be an excuse to be a better man

If you want, you could apologize
Just look right into my eyes
You'd better look right into my eyes
When you lie to me
Track Name: Hey John
I thought I saw you on the street the other day
I cried out, "Hey John", you just turned and walked away
So I wrote you a message in a bottle on the shore
I hope you go there on vacation, we could get together
If you're not feeling alright, well I'm feeling fine
If you're not feeling alright, I'm feeling fine

You said "Who are you to judge?" Who are you?
I said "I'm sorry man, I can't support you"
You said "I got shit going on", I can relate
I don't know if it's my fault or if I made mistakes
'cause I know you have, you know it too
Just be a man, confront your fears and break through
I got shit going on, I got shit going on
Back in a time when I could forgive almost anything

But no more man, I'm sorry

I saw a shirt the other day, I thought I'd send it to you
I thought I'd cut up the material the way I wanna cut you
Been sending you some emails
Been shooting you some texts
What the fuck happened to you?
Where the fuck is my friend?

You said "Who are you to judge?" Who are you?
I said "I'm sorry man, I can't support you"
You said "I got shit going on", I can relate
I don't know if it's my fault or if I made mistakes
'cause I know you have, you know it too
Just be a man, confront your fears and break through
I got shit going on, I got shit going on
Back to a place where I could forgive almost anything

It's not your fault
It is though.

I saw you tracing faces in the rain outside my house
I like the way your girlfriend looked inside her new blue blouse
I'd wonder if you trade her to me just to make amends
It's this shit that goes on in my head
I looked into your eyes and you looked into mine
I couldn't feel the ground beneath, the stars in the black sky
Against the clouds, the frogs croaked on

So we stood outside your car on the lake by the waterway
Every time i go there now, I don't feel I can stay
Awake for long like I am dreaming
The only thing that keeps me away?
The sound of you just screaming.
