Track Name: Grace Cathedral
come outside and smell the leaves
somewhere under the willow trees
I see my feet int the sand
below the stars of nowhere land

all alone, we're all alone
come take this down and drown
let's see what we can do without grace cathedral and the holy one
all alone, we're all alone
come outside and drown

I remember you were here
all grown up with no tears
I can see you in the dark
where we used to dance in the park

all alone, we're all alone
come take this down and drown
let's see what we can do without grace cathedral and the holy one
all alone, we're all alone
come outside and drown

please stay and watch the people breathe
watch them move, watch them eat
I remember you were here
all grown up with no tears

all alone, we're all alone
come outside and drown it
Track Name: The Thirsty Earth
traveling through the rough-hewn land of an endless state
hoping for reprieve from the dust that pervades my gaze
I can't seem to focus my mind on anything
apart from moving and to see another day

everyday is a different life in a different place
certain paths I took with ease now a maze of dismay
it's been so long since I've seen a familiar face
but I'll hold on 'til I can have communion again

baptize my soul in the thirsty earth
bless my body in the dirt
acquaint myself with sin and the ways of the world
bless my body made from the dirt

leaves on the ground mark the time for decay
deciduous nature's call for me to move with the change
I went back home and found everything in it's place
except for me and the wave that I create

baptize my soul in the thirsty earth
bless my body in the dirt
acquaint myself with sin and the ways of the world
bless my body made from the dirt
Track Name: Fear Of The Layman
the priority of making ends meet
that's just learning how to play the game
and all the intricacies of the life you lead are just yearning to rearrange
and to move with the change
I don't know what you've been told
you've got to keep your sight on the whole
because everyone gets so caught up in taking their own road
but you gotta keep moving on
and sing your own song

how does it feel when life seems surreal
and you can't understand why this keeps happening
how does it feel?
how do you feel?

how does it feel when life seems too real
and you can't understand why this keeps happening
how does it feel?
how do you feel?
Track Name: Equal Planes
if you feel there is a hole inside your life
you can take it away or let it stay
you can survive if you stay awake
keep your heart and mind alive

if you feel you can't tell from what is wrong or right
don't be afraid of all the different ways
you can survive if you stay awake
keep your heart and mind alive

and I've been told before
that everything will turn out fine
and we can change our own lives
and take our piece but not too much
and we will all be made whole

with her long dark hair and her eyes of brown
makes me know I'll never frown
