Track Name: The White On The Walls In The Hallway
the green of the trees leads me home
as this train rolls through all the grey growth
and as i lift my head that old man says
this is all you've ever known
this is all you've ever known

and i see it all falling apart now
i see it all coming to an end
and you say this love will kill you
well mama please die as friends
well mama please die as friends

your arguing it carries through the halls
you're arguing about who first pulled the pistol
and no, i don't know and no, i don't care
all i know is we're the first to fall
all i know is we're the first to fall

and i say loneliness please leave me
i need some time to think
and if you were to go and leave me all alone
perhaps i'd wake on the brink
perhaps i'd wake on the brink
(of nothingness)

and now that it's all falling apart
you hold up your, your bruised heart
and sing oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last

these pebbles begin to fade
as ivy grows on the nostalgic graves
and if love is something that can grow on you
i guess it can die too
i guess it can die too

and you, you're sitting in the hallway
and you, you're hoping for the blues
and you sang a song in the hope we'd sing along
and now you're at an absolute
now you're at an absolute

and now that it's all falling apart
you hold up your, your bruised heart
and sing oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
oh lord, may we part
may this time be the last
may this time be the last

i've lived my life behind a screen
and now this make-up has washed clean
and i could really use a bowerbird
to come and take this bluebird home
to come and take this bluebird home

if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
if i was to go
Track Name: About Caleb
she's a blue water-stain in all those family portraits
she's the daughter of methadone and the mother of eight
and they say there's too much to it, you can't simply blame her
that she's not the reason such events have occurred
but in the meanwhile, this mother has lost her child
and once again, this boy has lost his friend

and i say lay, lay me, lay me down
and i will lay you, lay you, lay you down too
and i'll sing to you, i'll sing to you
like my father used to
like my father used to do

and it seems you're too lonely to tell
that there's a life beyond this well
and it seems you're too young to realise
the way i feel about the woman who brought you to life
and yes, it's grim
no mother wishes to lose kin
but you've found a substitute
in your substance

but go, keep on smiling
and i will go and keep on crying
crying for you
crying for you
like our mothers used to
like our mothers used to
Track Name: Tell Me What To Fear
i come from a fatherless home
i've got pockets full of stones
and as the water gets deeper
my body feels freer
so tell me what to fear
'cause i'm afraid
i won't make it through this year

is it love?
no it's not
it's it god?
no it's not
i'm just the ugly child that
fate forgot
fate fogot
Track Name: Brother
you stumbled upon something containing
everything you called beautiful
and now you've lost your compass
and you're just waiting for the distant call
reality overcame you, liquidated by your emotions
and i held your body so true, a result of liquid provocation

and i sat with a body of fears
and i cried with a body of tears
and i loved below these stairs

oh i wanted honesty and honesty it came to me

i never thought it would come to this
letting our love go adrift
but she's not mine, no she's not mine, no she's not mine
no and neither, and neither, and neither, is she yours

and we found honesty in bodies of beauty
and these branches they found their twine
but we'll continue to ignore them verily
for neither will be yours or mine

and we can hope for ropes to pull us to the best
but in honesty these ropes will simply tear at our flesh

oh i wanted honesty and honesty it came to me

and i never thought it would come to this
letting our love go adrift
but she's not mine, no she's not mine, no she's not mine
no and neither, and neither, and neither, is she yours

oh brother, oh brother
i know your pain is more than mine
but brother we have but each other
and you're my twine

i never thought it would come to this
letting our love go adrift
i never thought it would come to this
letting our love go adrift

oh brother, oh brother
i know your pain is more than mine
but brother we have but each other
and you're my twine
