Track Name: Where It All Began
Another lucid day if it weren't for the clouds within my brain
I'll take a single moment to ascertain
Where it all began, I guess we'll never know
I'll still find beauty in the colors, they tend to grow

Hope offers to soften the coffin, coughing often, tossing around
Faith or fate: which one dictates?
I'm so lost, I want to take off and find a blissful start
In a new land or a different part of space...

Dreaming with a bitter taste
You should have brushed your teeth,
You could have done a lot of things
Breathing in leftover heat
The three degrees that hasn't cooled yet
Track Name: Riches
Ya hey, ya hey, ya oh...

It's anchors and dice with the rules outside
In your backyard by the pool
I've never seen riches like these, at least in my hands
But I learn to keep my cool

You show me your cars and the Glenfiddich
As I cover the deep yawns
Our lives decay, who cares? You still got paid
To brush the footprints off your lawn

Ya hey, ya hey, ya oh...

Subculture has shown what we must do
To find success in our own glory
I look to the stars while you look to your par
And determine what it means to win

I'm evergreen in a stationed world
Where in between is nothing
With the way we see, we will grow
With the ya hey ya hey ohs

Ya hey, ya hey, ya oh...

Softly falling down
The pillows became part of my face
We hit the ground and you lost your way
Ahh where are you now?

Slowly falling
When the silver lining shows itself
I'll take my portrait off the shelf
And repaint

Ya hey, ya hey, ya oh...
Track Name: Grapefruit
Let's stop thinking for a while
Take my hand, we'll ride the sun to tomorrow
Let's take some time to enjoy all the treasures that we have
And be alive, we'll do things like

Eating grapefruit in bed
Or watching the stars instead of sleeping
I want to climb every mountain in sight with you
A road trip for two, make it overseas
In a place that we have never seen before

It's not a getaway from the world
It's to the world from our thoughts
We get caught in a rut so deep it feels like a groove
Well I know that it's not
It's not a getaway from the world
It's to the world and our hearts
If that means running away, we'll find a place to stay
This could be our brand new start

Da da...

We went on the balcony
And you said, “what a beautiful view!”
I agreed while looking directly at you

Da da da...
Track Name: Mountains & Chandeliers
"Lace up your snow boots and grab a map
Or you'll be left uncertainly cold"
That's what they told me when I said
I was unsure of my time spent

Now my restlessness has caught up when I'm lying in bed
And I think to myself, I think to myself
What is it that I want or who do I become?
Because I'm already so far, but so far away

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

"Bang out your shoes at the door
Leave your clothes on the coat rack, we'll take it from here"
And they made me forget what I went there to do
So I took a rain check and that made two years pass

I wish they weren't so fast
We try to take it one day at a time
But the news reports the weather
And it certainly feels much colder than before

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

This is an alpine rebellion in a modern victorian
The outbursts arranged, my heartbeat fading
Ooh I don't want to die
Ooh I just want to find
Who's winning, admitting all this shit that I've been doing
Like it's a crime or unnatural, like I shouldn't dwell on my life
And what I want to do with it:
Keep climbing or hang by?

Mountains or chandeliers
We count our years, we build a loft
To keep our thoughts and other views
Out' the coffee

Mountains and chandeliers
Though ironic they may seem
Don't rewind your timepiece,
I guarantee you'll get there
Track Name: Polaris
Flushed ink where my wrist ends
Words rhyme so I won't forget
Cast iron is my conscience
And it takes a toll to know

I've noticed a trend
Where I'm bleeding from the bones, trying to understand
Why my ribs have grown soft
Or why the lights have dimmed

North Star, how do I find my way back home?
I have scars; maybe time will fix me slowly

Ooh I know that I'm just growing
But I've learned with age and loss of youth
There is no game, this is the truth
Ooh I know I'm not alone
I only feel that way with distance
I only feel that way with distance

Faded ink where my wrist ends
Blurred words that I forget
My compass off by a crosswind
And I have never been so scared

I've noticed a trend
Where I fall to my grazed knees trying to understand
Why my ribs have grown soft
I pray to the light that's left

North Star, how do I find my way back home?
I have scars; maybe time will fix me slowly
North Star, how do I find my way back home?
I have scars; maybe time will fix me slowly...
