Track Name: The Attic (From Which is Desire)
The pearly gates outside of town
the rich reside
hidin' from the masses
actin' like they have a better life
but the apple-shaped Earth
and we upon it surely drift
turn down the streets
watchin' bare beams shine in the night

Here in the Attic
noticin' all the havoc
Here in the Attic
where they said we couldn't have it
Here in the Attic
we find that all of us are broken
Here in the Attic
we can see a Heaven
and we don't wait...
we don't wait...
we won't wait...
we won't wait...
we cannot wait
still we wait...
Track Name: Build Soil
Are we too much out?
Are we too much out?
keep the soil home and on the farmland

Should we submit, supplied
to better word and mind?
I think I'll move off - turn it on itself until it pours out

Steal away, and stay away
Oh, what a graveyard
take it to the market, turn it under

I don't want to start a movement
I just want to start movin'

Am I even free
or am I fleeing?
Are you free?
a Shepherd without any sheep isn't a Kingdom

Are we a salt-less sea
a crashing wave of greed
are we free?
A shepherd without any sheep isn't a kingdom

Are we seen, unseen?
you better take what's clean
you better move off
turn it on itself until it pours out

I don't want to start a movement
I just want to start movin'

the crops grow so slow
we're movin' to fast
where's the soil?
we're losin soil
spinnin' too fast
movin' too fast
find the soil
build soil
don't need to catch up
just need to fall back down
the trees shed leaves
we shed leaves
gotta make a livin'
but we won't stop livin'
the trees shed leaves, we shed
leaves

I don't want to start a movement
I just want to start movin'
Track Name: Over and Out
I stepped alone outside the bar
to bum a cigarette, and conversation
you said, 'We all fall
It doesn't matter who you are
so take a drag
It's where we're at
Just take a drag.'

I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and have another beer
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and tell a story
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back, I'll open up my ears
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and have another beer

I couldn't turn my eyes from my mind
you took my hand and we looked back
like an avalanche, we covered up the past
'Just stay outside,' you said, 'the world is very big
but this, here, tonight, can only happen
once in this life
so take a drag
it's where we're at
just take a drag.'

I've been focusing, I've been focusing
on all the wrong things all along
I've been focusing, I've been focusing
on what I'm not what have I become

I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and have another beer
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back, I'll tell a story
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and open up my ears
I don't care if we're here all night
Just sit back and have another beer

I don't care if we're here all night.
Track Name: The Way of Ignorance
There's a girl I know
in the mountain snow
she had a heart she sold, I know
There's a girl you know
where the beach runs gold
she had a love grown old, you know

There's a man I know
on the street corner
he holds a cardboard note, I know
There's a dad you know
he works his hands to the bone
to have a hand to fold, you know

We can climb from the top of this mountain
We can fall from the bottom of the sea
We can climb from the top of this mountain
I know, you know

I believe in my soul
so I believe in my hope

We can climb from the top of this mountain
We can fall from the bottom of the sea
We can climb from the top of this mountain
I hope you know
