Track Name: People Person
there isn't always a good way for us to
constructively criticize
and there isn't always a nice way for us to
end our long-term relations

but I've figured it out

you can just call and I'll be there
come hell, high water, bad weather
you can just call and I'll be there
I'm there for you

there really isn't a good way
to tell the kids you're putting the dog down
and there really isn't a nice way
to tell them family members are dying

but I've figured it out

because I'm good with people
Track Name: Triumph Over Youth
all the good she keeps forever
are the things I can't remember
fading, fading away
like a long-forgotten picture
but regret stays clear as crystal
prospering in spite of decay

follow through before the chance is lost
the routine, it keeps me from the truth
occupied by task in place of thought
present moment triumphs over youth

black and white, the definitions
start to dim and turn and tangle
washing out to light shade of gray
I retreat, a place for cover
seek asylum, seek out shelter
beyond the pale, safe house to stay

follow through before the chance is lost
the routine, it keeps me from the truth
occupied by task in place of thought
present moment triumphs over youth

beat, my heart will beat
singing clear and true
hearts, they break so easily
so spare them from the truth

what's mine is mine
Track Name: Family Ties
look up to the sky
what do you see
a valley in the clouds
an owl on the chimney

surrounded by concrete
and old world sensibilities
it is a world within a world within a world

the only way to survive in this town is to know when to look the other way
turn your head
avert your eyes
and just pretend you never heard
what they think you know
what they know you know
just don’t speak
it’s time to leave

the shades of color found within the glass reminds me of a sharp reality
resembles shame and all the guilt that comes with pain
against your son just send him away send him away
Track Name: Rivers
there is no time to panic
we have no time to lose

wash me down
spread the seeds
sedimentation needs
more than a river’s
centripetal
forces
their hands down into my water

it all becomes salinated again
we’re all just brackish in the canal of our mother

sediments give away all the hints

there is no time to panic
we have no time to lose
