Track Name: Nothing Personal
Sneaking suspicion lingering mission
You turn to yourself but It ain't good enough
Cling to your pillows for here comes the billow
It takes you away
Now you're astray

Nothing personal
Just good company
Nothing Personal
Just good company

Broke through your bishops
Notoriously vicious
It changed your whole life
So you lie there in strife
Hope for protection or brief deflection
It comes from inside
There's nowhere to hide

Nothing personal
Just good company
Nothing Personal
Just good company

I can bring you down when you're movin'
I could break you down when you're hiding
I could follow you around when you're movin'
I could bring you down

Nothing personal
Just good company
Nothing Personal
Just good company
Track Name: April
Your waves churn
Your tables turn
You blew us all away
(Baby just sway)

Your actions taunt
Your gazes haunt
I can't avoid your face
(Every single day)

We met here
Quite sincere
Don't dance today
(maybe just sway)

Your colors shine
Like white wine
You light up my day

You're in my mind
Words I cannot find
Oh how I feel
I turn like a wheel

You break rules
With vocal tools
And climb up the walls
(Everywhere we go)

Your parents cry
But always try
To clean up your mess
(Somehow they know)

That it's you
Who tells the truth
No matter how wrong
(Everywhere we go)

The people stare
At your hair
But somehow they know

You're in my mind
Words I cannot find
Oh how I feel
I turn like a wheel
Track Name: Anchor and Compass
Without hesitation
Reach in any direction
Sweat is the overwhelming joy
Seen from waves of corduroy
An exploding sky
Is no concern of mine

And dreams of silver snow
Fill us with a glow
Never woken up
Blood like cough syrup
Orange clouds
And soothing ocean sounds

Fireworks never were there
It could have been a sight to share
then comes the hour
Where all the doubts just cower
As we stand seaside
The horizon shines off the tide

But now
I must leave
All my thing have been retrieved
Hesitation overtakes me
It drags and it beckons me
But I must go now
I'm not sure why or how
But I hope to see you again
Someday
Track Name: Conundrum
Can't you see I'm a mess?
Please just try to confess
'Cause your eyes are as red
As the smile that you led
I caught onto your scheme
You're a cancer with a dream
No more tricks up your sleeves
And nowhere for you to leave
Why don't you look me in the face
And just tell me what's the case?
Is it 'cause I was plain?
Please just try to explain

I don't know why you came
If it could never be the same
Just give me another day
Don't talk to me that way
To me this was meant to be
But you found it hard to see
All you ever wanted was more
You're an ungrateful little whore

Can't you see I'm a mess?
Please just try to confess
That your childish soul
Couldn't take it anymore
I saw your eye go around
To different parts of town
Is it 'cause I was a pain?
Please just try to explain
Track Name: Sweet Potato
It's getting late
My phone is melting
Here I am stuck
Perched on a building
Just to see where I live
But tonight I could try
Riding the stars
On a vacant sky

I won't be the one who starts
A different kind of feeling
Fork in your mother's eye
We are waiting for someone
To take from their side
A promoted kind of feeling
A pain in your mother's side
We are waiting for someone else

Today I lost my watch
But time forgot to suddenly stop
I have to move on
Like a farmer with no crop
In bed I lay
With an open mind and eyes
Estranged by ticks and tocks

I won't be the one who starts
A different kind of feeling
Fork in your mother's eye
We are waiting for someone
To take from their side
A promoted kind of feeling
A pain in your mother's side
We are waiting for someone else
Track Name: Boomerang
Everywhere I seem to go
Ticket sales and face painters
Boomerangs fly in the air
Little bugs in my hair
Second chances are never fair
Brings along a load of wear

Feeling sad again
Hearing crimes in my head
Along with things left unsaid
Million festers waiting to be fed

Everywhere I seem to go
Ticket sales and face painters
Boomerangs fly in the air
Little bugs in my hair
People who walk down the street
Never look down at their feet

Feeling sad again
Hearing crimes in my head
Along with things left unsaid
Million festers waiting to be fed
Track Name: Will You Remember?
Hold it off when the silence is broken
Respond when the walls have lost their ears
Try to keep your composure
Don't get any closer
I am bursting from the seams
And reenacting your dreams

Your ivory face
In the dimming lights
Will you swim with glee?
Will you remember me?
Your ivory face
In the dimming lights
Will you swim with glee?
Will you remember?

Distance yourself when the stars are purging
Douse the lights when the walls are closing in
Try to keep your composure
No getting closure
I am bursting from the seams
And reenacting your dreams

Your ivory face
In the dimming lights
Will you swim with glee?
Will you remember me?
Your ivory face
In the dimming lights
Will you swim with glee?
Will you remember?

Will you remember me
In the dimming lights
Will you remember
Your ivory face
Will you remember me
In the dimming lights
Will you remember me
