Track Name: Fraction
Fraction
Picking on the things I know I am elated
Picking on the people I know I’ve been held first

So married what you think you should
I’m old enough to be ahead of it
And lean on me if could
I’m half a fraction of a man

Digesting in your heart those things that make you seem serious
Your left, your gone, and someone still moves on

So married what you think you should
I’m old enough to stay ahead of it
And lean on me if could
I’m half a fraction of a man

So lean on me if you think you’ll be alright for him
And lean on me if you think you’ll be alright for him

And don’t take your word for it maybe
You got to save it for an open mind
You can’t say no when you’re hazy
And in your heart an open mind

Get a love get a love get a love
Get a love and you will have the time

Don’t be alright with him maybe
You gotta save it for another time
Track Name: Dissolve
Dissolve
So I may have been a little bit nervous
So you may have been a little bit scared
I’m not drinking for two

So it seemed to be a little bit August
But it feels to be a little bit May
And I’m not drinking for two

Dissolve myself in you
A little bit younger a little bit new
Dissolve myself

Don’t build your life on the wings of regret
You left it here but you’re not there yet
I’m living proof that we can change

So are we hopeful or are we hopeless
Do we build this wall or should we climb this fence
I’m living proof people change

Dissolve my sense in you
The faces change and it’s nothing new
Dissolve my sense

All the things I said in the past
Regret the thoughts I never did have
I’m proof that I’m living
A Life that’s easy and giving

All those things I said in the past
Regret the thoughts I never did have
I’m proof that I’m living
A Life that’s easy and giving

Dissolve my sense in you
The faces change and it’s nothing new
Dissolve my sense

I’m a face in the crowd
Want to do something but how
Track Name: Yards By Feet
Yards By Feet
I fell up inside my bones
With all the things unknown
You got all the things you need
I’ve got all the things I see

And only yards by feet
With faith and love and everything
Only yards by feet

So if you duck and hide
You’ll run right through my mind
And all I see is me
I hide up in my tree

And only yards by feet
With faith and love and everything
Only yards by feet

With trial and error
Can you get me high

And who does your cost for me
Try not to see that it’s all that you have
And who does your cost for me

In the beginning of time there was love
And all we knew came from above
Time has passed us by
We’re smart until we die
Track Name: Loaded
Loaded
Heaven hold yourself a new word
No longer can I run
And all the way until I said it back
I cannot run

And homeward as I may
I find my way back just any day
And homeward as I may
And I’ve got a word
It spells it all out
I want to be loaded

I lost myself in a miss direction
Which way do I turn
I lost myself in a miss impression
Who was I first

And homeward as I may
I find my way back just any day
And homeward as I may
And I’ve got a word
It spells it all out
I want to be loaded

I hold on until the clouds are done
I let myself until I know I run I heard

And homeward as I may
I find my way back just any day
And homeward as I may
I want and I take
I live in my wake
I want to be loaded
Track Name: Don't Forget
Don’t Forget
Here’s a little lullaby that lets you know that I am being a little lazy
I sing a little lullaby that lets you know that I am almost half way home

And don’t forget that life is not so perfect

Here’s a story to let you know that I am being a little lazy
Here’s a little tale that lets me know I am so f’n wrong

And don’t forget that life is not so perfect
It’s a quarter past 10 in your head you’re half way gone

Keep yourself afloat on a body on a barge on an ocean
Leaving all behind the things that will not float

And don’t forget that life is not so perfect
With your head on top of the ocean so you’ll drowned

Your face on top of the world again
You never drop below zero
Your face on top of the world again
You’re more than negative and so
When your low and you feel
That your something else and so
When you go let it out
I’m half way around this place

So lean on me when you’re young girl you have a little nervous energy
So lean on me when your young girl you have another place to be

And don’t forget that life is not so patient
And don’t forget to leave yourself alone

So sort it out in the meantime
You’ll be better
Better in the long run

So tell yourself honestly
Everything you need to know
And tell yourself honestly
You’ll be better off if you know
Track Name: Time Keeps Marching On
Time Keeps Marching On
And half your life is here
If you spoke would you speak well of me
And half your life is here
Can I put you down for a guilty plea

Life is so fickle
The circus just called
There out of you

And half your life
Is brought to you by sponsors
If you don’t get help
You’ll be marked half off

Life is so, como se de se fickle
If you build it up in your head
It well let you down
And don’t let go of this, don’t let go of this
You’ll help your mother out
And don’t let go of this, don’t let go of this
You’ll drink your father proud

And lying is your only option
Don’t want to disappoint the ones you love
So lying is your only option

Half the time you wonder
If you be better off in another body
The other half you wonder if you’d be better off gone

And half the time you wonder
If you be better off in another body
The other half you wonder if you’d be better off gone

And time keeps marching on
Track Name: Less Dense
Less Dense
You got one all of the others do
You had town none of but me and you
I know this will always change
It’s got a word that says
You’re great

If god was watching why would he care about that
You’re a fool when you look into a mirror
You’re a fool when you look through your eyes
You’re a fool when you look into a mirror
So why do you think you’re fucking great

If god was watching why would he care about that

Could your mind get any less dense
I submit that it can’t

If god was watching why would he look right at you
If god was watching what do you think you might do

We’re all alone in this big old stone
Track Name: Backwards
Backwards
How’s about splitting the atom
Let us know when you are done
How’s about a cure for cancer
I thought you’d have it by now

Are you playing with me
Are you playing with all I see
Do you want me to be wrong
Do you want words to always come out backwards
Then ask me something

How’s about jumping these hurdles
I’ve lined them up so you can win
How’s about swimming this water
The Backstroke will be fine

Are you playing with me
Are you playing with all I see
Do you want me to be wrong
Do you want words to always come out backwards
Then ask me something

Hold up hold I want to see you winning this race
First place

Are you playing with me
Are you playing with all I see
Do you want me to be wrong
Do you want words to always come out backwards
Then ask me something

Hold up hold I want to see you winning this race
First place
Track Name: Hoboken
Hoboken
So goes the days when all’s hypocritical
You wanted one but all that you said was it
And I’m not

So set your feet up
Disasters come but you’re all alone

And who got the way when you set in your stone
Who got the love when you know it’s your own
I’m not

So set your feet up
Disasters come but you’re on your own

There’s a space in between and I know that it’s mine
There’s a beauty inside and it’s all but inclined
I have never seen anything other than this
So give up on all that you try

Hoboken New Jersey or the state line
Kissing the walls

Set me once and you know that I’m out
I’ve got all of the things and you know it’s in doubt
Set me once and you know I get out
I’ve got all of the things and you know it’s in doubt
Set me once cause you know that I will cause I’m out
Track Name: Justify My Own Means
Justify
Paragraph by paragraph I justify my own means
Paragraph by paragraph I justify my self
To you alone and the lord above

And paragraph by paragraph I justify my own means

I take from you I take from him I want to be the real thing
I take from you I take him and I have nothing
For you along and the lord above

I take from you and all I have is everything I wanted
I take from you and all I have is
For alone and the lord below

So reign down on me
And reign down on me
Cause I am a gentle one

Paragraph by paragraph I justify my own means
Paragraph by paragraph I justify it
To you alone and the lord above

And reign down on me
And reign down on me
Reign down on me

And trap us in a warm embrace
Cause god is not afraid of me

And trap us in your warm embrace
Cause god is not afraid of me

And trap us in your warm embrace
Cause god is not afraid of me

And trap us in a warm embrace
Cause god is not afraid of me
Track Name: Lackz
Lackz
My love my love my love
Gets taken for a ride with me
My love my love my love
It’s everything I had to be
My love my love my love
It’s everywhere I have to be

So hold me roll me
I am lackadaisical

My love my love my love
It’s abundant in a million times
My love my love my love
Never lasting all the times

And from now on I fell in time
With the lackadaisical
And from now on it’s been on time
With the lackadaisical

Tomorrow I must go
But I leave with you this hope

So hold on tight
I can see the light
We are lackadaisical

So hold on tight
We can see the light
I am lackadaisical

So hold on tight
We can see the light
We are lackadaisical
