Rising Water

I know you're trying, we've been doing the best we can
Stuck on an Island, laying low for another plan
I'm Glad it's not like you, to struggle with despair

Oh The rising water, surging towards your head
Grab my hand we'll take the plunge But baby hold your breath

Can't stand to die here Working from morning til the day is dead
We're so alone now, What good is money if you've got no friends?

I'm glad it's not like you struggle with despair

Oh The rising water, surging towards your head Grab my hand we'll take the plunge But baby hold your breath

Oh my babe, sweet visions of us on some sunny day,
Far away from all the heartache and pain Girl we've got to run

Oh The Rising water

Summertime

We're a Blank Slate and the days are long, up all night, Sleep at dawn
Yeah there's work tomorrow, but for now we'll dance We may not get a second chance

I took you to the lifeguards chair, we must have spent three hours there
'til the sun came up, and burned our skin so we went to find some shade again

In the Summer, in the Summertime

You'd do your hair for friday night and all the boys would set their sights
You'd pick the ones, with the wild eyes, They'd grab your hands, and you'd just smile

But they didn't know you like I did How you keep your heart so well hid
And while you're miles away in some northern trap
Come July, you'll be coming back.

In The Summer, In The Summertime

Give it Up

I find it horrifying, the way you left your dreams
totally dismembered, buried near the trees
But how much money keeps quiet your heart and soul
I never thought you'd fall but now you do as your told

Why do you give it up so easy? Why do you give it up so easy? You could have it any way you wanted

The almighty dollar, has got you out on the chase
now you're sad as a piano, that nobody plays
But how much money keeps quiet your heart and soul
I never thought you'd fall but now you do as your told

Why do you give it up so easy?
Why do you give it up so easy?
You could have it any way you wanted

Why do you give it up so easy?
Why do you give it up so easy?
You could have it any way you wanted

Wild With You

Veered from the road, wandered off the path
Burned the only bridge that could take us back
Roam baby roam, run for the woods
Wade down the river, oh ain't life good

We'll yell through the hills, Climb till we're dead
Paint a pretty life we could hang in our head
Embers from a fire, causin clouds of blue
Been thinking to myself you're such a beautiful view

I'd go wild with you, baby, I'd go wild with you 

Thunder in our heads, lightening down our spines
Hiding from the rain in a diamond mine
Howling at the man, smiling in the moon
Eating what we find in our Red Rock room

I'd go wild with you I'd go wild

Suddenly Naked

I never wanted this, for me, for you.
 But it's like you said, what can we do?

You showed me such pretty things
Then came to paint them black
I want my freedom want my colors back

Trying to resist you, when suddenly your naked on the floor
begging me to kiss you But I don't want you anymore
I don't want you anymore

RIVER LUST

Winter is retreating, Summer heat settles in
I'm creeping through the tall pines Where no one's ever been

I filled up all the pages, with poems of the sun
Sweat's dripping towards my fingers, The crickets start to hum

I've got a heart full of riverlust I'm searching for the cool, cool water
I've got a heart full of riverlust I'm searching for the cool, cool water

There's bits of silver dancing, streaming past our feet
Wild flowers where we're lying, fall sets fire to the leaves

I've got a heart full of riverlust I'm searching for the cool, cool water
I've got a heart full of riverlust I'm searching for the cool, cool water

I lost my breath, as the water swept over me
My blue lips and shivering turned into a calm relief

I've got a heart full of riverlust I'm searching for the cool, cool water

I'm through

Cake on the makeup catch my eye,
as you float on by
Tall tales and short replies,
as you drift into the night
When I caught you red handed,
well it wasn't no surprise
I always saw it in your eyes

I'm through living with a lie

I woke from sleep I was at peace
Looked out the window, heard the leaves
Then I turned to see you'd gone
Or maybe never came home
You were out late with friends
people hiding from the sun
well I hope you had your fun

I'm through living with a lie
I'm through living with a lie

There was a time I needed you
to help me up and get me through
the bad track record on my skin
Kicked out my conscience, let you in
I'd hurt myself and you'd just laugh
come up with stories for my friends
I was waiting for the end

I'm through living with a lie
I'm through living with a lie
I'm through living with a lie
I'm through living with a lie

Tall Promises

Every time, I try to make it right, reaching out to find all the truth inside
Let's admit, part of us is wrong, part of us is right, we don't have to force it no

Half of what you're thinking, Isn't all of innocence
take me to that darkness in your head 
Half of what you're saying, I can tell you're faking
Give me those tall promises that you said

The Strangest part of being half alive is you barely feel the crying, oh oh
Can't ignore the coiling snakes at dawn poisoning your plans Striking at your hands oh no

Half of what you're thinking, Isn't all of innocence
Take me to that darkness in your mind
Half of what you're saying, I can tell you're faking
Give me those Tall promises that you said

Dream Inside a dream

It's a nightmare, waking up with no teeth
On some sinking ship, bouncing around on the sea
With the captain's hat hung by your door
Wont be writing no letters no more

It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream
Who knows which is which, or what it means
It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream
Who knows which is which, or where it leads

You want to fly, but you can't find no wind
So you just spread your arms and run till you lift
It's all so much fun, until she takes off her face
And you want to run, but you're just jogging in place

It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream
Who knows which is which, or what it means
It's a dream inside a dream inside a dream
Who knows which is which, or where it leads

Troubles

Slam the door shut, baby don't look back
You know that life did you no good you were running off the tracks
Take a load off, let it lift away
Your friends aren't really friends at all, You're better off this way

Change is gonna come And you know it ain't too soon
Creepin with the cover of the moon
You're free as you'll ever be
When everything is wrong
These troubles can't last that long

It's time to repaint, and fix them up
All those kid things you said you'd do are covered up in dust
It ain't over not even close
You've lived whole lifetimes in your head except the one that mattered most

Change is gonna come And you know it ain't too soon
Creepin with the cover of the moon
You're free as you'll ever be When everything is wrong
These troubles can't last that long

Lines

Warm beer, cold women, can get your head just spinning
Sitting cross legged outside the county fair
Chain smoking cigarettes, while some ballerina pirouettes
A dragon tattoo running down her leg

The ferris wheel just blew a fuse, now they're stuck but what a view
it's a red sunset, and the young ones try some tongue
I never thought i'd be the one hammered drunk at the house of fun
Little kids, stepping all over my head

It never was in my plans, to be the kind of man
Outside the fortune teller, Cursing the lines in my hands

Didn't win no prizes, no not one
always got the worst water gun
and my date up and left me for the worlds strongest man
And all the animals have no rights
and the carnies stay up all night
Gambling away, all their minimum wage
The cotton candy starts to stiffen as the lights cease to glisten
Some frown faced clown, follows the last family out

I never thought I'd be the one hammered drunk at the house of fun
Little kids, stepping all over my head
It never was in my plans, to be the kind of man
Outside the fortune teller, Cursing the lines in my hands
