Track Name: The All You Know
Is this all that I am
The all of me
I feel like l've been pre-programmed

It's all in your head and you know
The all you see
Must be all you can stand.

This is all I can give
The all of me
As I am and will be

I can pick me apart or stand me up
All on my own
For everyone to see

This is all I can give. For everyone to see
This is all i can give. The all of me
Track Name: His Real Name was Al Jerry
On your own
Letters from home
Remind (that) you’ve grown old
Don’t say I told you so

Make me a child again
The streetlight’s on so I’ll go in
Make me a child again
I want to be light again

Climb the day
You’re mind decays
Take care what you say
You’re life on display

Make me a child again
The streetlight’s on so I’ll go in
Make me a child again
I want to be light again
Track Name: Memory
I step outside, It's feeling bright out
I'm feeling right, here with the lights out
Is it a lie beyond my own eyes
Or just the shine that has me feeling like

I see no one and no one sees me

And late at night, you don't wanna go out
You're feeling right, there with the lights out
You're out of sight, you're out of mind
Im out of sight, it has me feeling like

I see on one and no one sees me

Where are you hiding boys and girls?
Did you cover your tracks?
Did you burn all your clothes?

Memory won't serve you right
Memory won't keep you safe at night
Memory won't serve you right
Memory won't keep you warm at night
Track Name: Next Life
Woke up this morning with a ghost in my bed
She’s still so warm can’t believe that she’s dead
The house still alive, the sounds of a memory
Those words you read, well I swear that’s not me

You’ve been a bad little boy
Now she knows…
Buried the bones in the floor
Now she knows…

Tonight while you slept, I came home late again
This time it was me, I was the ghost in your bed
Searching for the words to make me alive again
I swear in the next life I’ll be a good man

I’ll be your best friend
I’ll be your sage
To color the darkness
The nightmare I’ve made

I’ll be your best friend
I’ll be your sage
Just keep us from drowning
Tell me what to say…

You’ve been a bad little boy
Now she knows…
Buried the bones in the floor
Now she knows…
Track Name: Wind-Up Boy
Wind-up boy
Had a few cheap tricks
Now you’re spent
Couldn’t make it stick

The secrets you stored beneath the floorboards, dug up
The story changed as you grew old, reborn

Wind-up boy
Have a few new tricks
But how long
Until you’re sick of it

When the stories you tell can’t save your son
The night and day roll into one, so numb

Wind-up boy
You’re still full of shit
And how long
Until you realize it

When the ears you stole forget your name?
Or when they lay you down in your new home? No more.
Track Name: Time Lapse
I got a drip on my mind
And I can't get it out.

I got a weight on my mind
And I can't get it off.

I see the passing of time
Bound back and my hands are tied
Faced up from the ground
A small piece of the whole I've found

Our mouths, they move a lot but we aren't saying much
And words, they don't mean shit, when what you want is the touch

Our mouths, they move a lot but we aren't saying much
