Track Name: Phantom Cowboy
Downtrodden misplacing my mind I'll be evicted in time, never known a life this way
I avoid placate, I avoid delay
freeing myself from the grime
Rust forms over my eyes
Expelling you from my mind
Beggin myself to be kind
All I wanna know
Is the reason why
this case 'gone cold
All I wanna know is why
the reason why
I wanna know what you hide

If I could run you know I'd run away
If I could go you know I would not stay

I guess now it's been two years
It's a fact now the dude abides
I still suffer from creature fear and
Trepidation inside
Sit still feel it engulf me
I'm being eaten alive
I've conquered habitual sadness
Sue me!
I just want to live my life
Track Name: Worry Warts
Doesn’t anyone get lonely anymore?

Oh my god I can see faces in the walls
They are coming for me
Can’t you see?
All I see are reasons to be scared
Though it doesn’t feel so good to hide
Sometimes it just what you do to survive
And oh I know, it can be scary seeing spots
I know there are homies on my side
They’ll hold me down till the sunrise

Oh I think the shadows are playing with my mind
I can’t tell what I’m looking at
What do you see?
All I see are things that haunt your mind
I just hate feeling like that
Like I’m constantly under attack
How can I even ever hope to get to sleep tonight?
Sleep with a pill beneath the tongue
Morning arrives surely as the sun

Oh my dear, I think I’m getting sad again
I cant believe this happening
Do you see this man?
All I see are curses cast on you
And all those whom damn thyself
Surly would gladly forfeit health
Sometimes it’s hard to admit you need help
Hostage to the “dosie-dose” brigade
When I try to move I’m too afraid
Track Name: (Like a) Badman/July 2015
Mouth watering unsung potential
Allurement that’s not prudential
Enticement that not that exciting
The result is often hang nail biting

Like a bad man, or some crazy hoarder
How could I spend my day’s life without borders?
How observant of you to pick up on that
When the thing you want causes a collapse

Welcome to waterloo
Surely it will ruin you
Just don’t ask me what to do
Track Name: Lightyears//Traveling the Spaceways
Don’t charge me with their crimes
I want to love you
Let me in your gates
So I can show you
Why drive away ambition
When it’s headed in the right direction
Just follow the compass
It’s all you need

Take a turn down the path
Where I can meet you
Mumble underneath your breath
While I berate you
Why insinuate divergence
When you can’t control your urges
Just follow the footsteps
They’re all you need

My mind makes you think you have to live in the now
But faith helps me believe it’ll happen in good timing
Someday soon, though I don’t know how
I hope my soul will find peace

Cover my footsteps and leave me be
Track Name: Man on Wire
Holy hollow
Swam through the mire
Poised now retro
I’m a man on wire
Left over land-ho
Bring all your dreams here
I’m less than shallow
Leave all your friends here

If seasons paint a picture
They make it so much bigger
If Seasons paint a picture
The dreams get so much bigger

The seasons paint the picture

Holy headboard
Ran crossed the delta
My soul finally deepened
At the western’s end
Riverheads met in the middle
In the heart of the mire
Watch for where you scribble
I’m a man on wire
Track Name: Witsend
How couldn’t you notice
I wasn’t really there
My mind was on a sailboat
On the high seas somewhere
How could I even think that
By singing songs
Actions could be revoked by words
And right my wrongs

I wanna know how you breathe
Oh, it seems so difficult to me
You make it look so easy
All I want
Is to be a real boy

what does it really mean
There are talks of balances,
and inequity
there was no way you could’ve known that
I was on my own
It looks like I’ve got a crew
But I know I’m alone
