Track Name: We Would Have to Whisper
We would have to whisper
Oh, we just shouldn't
make a sound
All this noise
in my heart
So full, I can't

All of this noise
and commotion
Every tells me
I should live it out
But what if I
don't what to
What if I
don't want to
What if I
just
want
you
Track Name: The Spirit will Take You
All of a sudden you hear her name
and it's like a hundred roses blossoming
and it's like you met your mother
and your father
in the rain
and you turned to the page
in their stories of their lives
that are not insane

Oh, no one knows this song
why do we all sing along

The spirit will take you
Where no one is questioning
and like a wild pack of dogs
You scream and wonder
Why you played the game
and you lie and cheat
and sometimes you fake it
and say it's not okay
But if you ask for forgiveness
Then forgiveness
Is what you'll get

Oh, no one knows this song
why do we all sing along
Oh, when you close your eyes
Do you dream of heaven?
Or is it what's inside
That you know will never fade
away, away

The Spirit will take you,
The Spirit will take you away
Track Name: Better for You
Like my ways
I am questioning always
It's my stance against the world
I feel, it never ran away
You always say
Maybe I don't trust you the way I should
Well baby it's a long way down the road
and every time it happens
I'll get better
I'll get better, for you

I wrote songs about you before I met you
I just didn't know it
I was high while I loved you
I just couldn't show it,
couldn't show it
couldn't show it
and I'll get better for you

Oh but when you come to me in my sleep
Feels so right, I know it's you
Know its you
and when you call my name
I know it's you

I'll get better for you
For you (x5)
Track Name: Blood Honey
Glass for bones
Walking is a treat
My toes they're always cold
Cause I got backwards facing feet
and I can't control my ankles

I eat what I love
But if I can't have that
I only sing the same old song
and truth be told
I always say the truth
because it's gotta be told
and I just can't see

When I close my eyes
It's black and white
and my heart starts racing
oh, because the money always seems so right
I pour honey in my blood
and I'll never know
oh what time it was

I whistle in my sleep
and I just can't shut my mouth
everyday is yesterday
and as the storm grows near
wherever it may be
I will be heard but not seen

I pour honey in my blood
I will be heard but not seen (x4)

In my blood (x4)
Track Name: Calling Out Your Name
I've been drunk before
I know what it's like to fall
But just tell me one more time, baby
Tell me how to work it all
Cause lately I don't know what I
Would do without the love of you
Sometimes I lose it all
But you bring it right back to me, babe

What if we never met that night?
What if I never passed you by?
I'd still be standing next to no one
Calling out your, calling out your name

We're just two people, baby
What can we really do
To change this world?
Well you and me
We got this thing, It'll always be
Maybe we can teach that to the children
Cause when you're soft like the heavens
Oh, and I'm hot like the stone of the earth
We melt back together
and you always seem to know
How to put me first

What if we never met that night?
What if I never passed you by?
I'd still be standing next to no one
Calling out your, calling out your name

What if we never met that night?
What if I never passed you by?
Track Name: All That Remains
Cozy looking out my window
At your silly silhouette
It's not good it's not bad
It's not simple and It's not sad
and If I had to do it
all over again
You know it's sweet love
that I'd be missing
Cause you can't just get that everywhere (x2)
I guess this hot red love's turning blue (x2)

So throw it away
All your ingested hate
It's just a bitter mistake
and you can learn another way

It's my way my way my way
I learned from two very different
sides of the coin
My father always said this
But my mother always did more
So I buckle down
and I burn to the core
I'm not gonna be that person anymore
I'll never be that person anymore

So throw it away
All your ingested hate
It's just a bitter mistake
and you can learn another way
Oh after the pain
All that remains is the beauty

I ain't ever gonna wait
Just to see you walking out (x2)
