Track Name: We're Really Just Programmed Robots (Love Is All Around You)
You pretend to know what is all around you here.
You pretend to know love is all around you here,
but what would you do?
What would you say?
I've built an honest day sifting through your mistakes,
what was it worth?

You pretend to know love is all around you here.
Didn't you fear love is all around you here
"I can't say..."
Please.
What would you do?
I can recall the day questioning my own faith and it hurt.
It hurt.

Not worth saving another mindless drone.
Blindly praying won't make this house a home.
Who'd dare say it?
Not just in heart, no...

Not worth saving another mindless drone.
Blindly praying won't make this house a home.
Who'd dare say it?
Not just in heart, no...
Track Name: Never Loved (Acoustic)
don't ever say I never loved you, honey
I always tried to make the best of what we had
and if the past was causing you to lose sleep
make like those who abandoned you before

you said you would be coming home
and fell apart and turned to me
you said you would be coming home and fell apart

I can't be the reason you don't progress anymore
we can't grow together if you never grow alone
I can't be your leg to stand on if you can't manage
it's not in me, I can hardly handle myself

it's hard enough to carry such a weight when I'm with you but it gets easier when you chip away my heart
hold my tongue 'til then when I go free
I'm taking all my lonely feelings home with me

I can't be the reason you don't progress anymore
we can't grow together if you never grow alone
I can't be your leg to stand on if you can't manage
it's not in me, I can hardly handle myself

when you don't see me are you lonely?
I get lonely too...
when you don't see me are you lonely?
I get lonely too...

I can't be the reason you don't progress anymore
we can't grow together if you never grow alone
I can't be your leg to stand on if you can't manage
it's not in me, I can hardly handle myself

I can hardly handle myself...
Track Name: Drag This On and On (Rain Song) [Acoustic]
I took something beautiful and forced my habits and strange dynamics
unbeknownst, a stranglehold of insecure, oppressive words

I should have known then,
now I don't have the will to drag this on and on
on and on...

if I was who I thought I was then maybe we'd stay linked together
if we did everything there was then how did we still fall to such lows?

we'll make it in the meantime...

have we gone and stayed too long?
can I turn your world inside out?
have we gone and stayed too long?
can I turn your world inside out?

little things we don't notice
that can build into years that drag us both along
on and on...
on and on and on...
Track Name: Been So Long
Remember? They were different days...
But we've changed some, we had to it's been so long.

We both want something better see,
than heavy anchors weighing like it's keeping you.

Do you recall what we'd go through?
And where we went to?
I don't know, it's been so long...

And it goes on so far, so long, that we don't want to get out of what we know.

Common threads sewn together,
deconstructing how months meshed slowly into years.
Everything has a purpose and we found ours
separate but still alive...
Track Name: Move At Different Speeds (On The Road) [Acoustic]
watch through windows, the world passing by
I don't care for speed, I'm taking my time
out here we meet endless concrete,
black with white lines stretching their arms
sky that spreads out blankets in blue
cover the plains, a long, endless view
small grains of sand or inches on maps
out here alone where sound can stand still

on the road, on our own
I never said we'd still be left the same if we parted
on the road

back there at home they all move
while we still sit here floating in space
where time knows no means, erases all things
don't go too far, you may not come back

say it won't be this hard (said it won't be this hard)
said it a thousand times
say it won't be this hard (said it won't be this hard)
said it a thousand times

on the road, on our own
I never said we'd still be left the same if we parted
on the road

on the road, on our own
I never said we'd still be left the same if we parted
on the road
Track Name: A Song of Consolation
If I could buy you more time,
I'd give you the chance you never had.
To tell her everything, but my money's no good here.

And it hurts I know, hurts I know,
it always, always hurts I know, hurts I know.
And it pleads, please...

If I reached her and every sound was clear,
you could carve the words carefully and float them through her ears.
Say it slow and whisper soft,
make it true and I'll say it...

Hurts I know, hurts I know,
it always, always, hurts I know, hurts I know
and pleads, please...
Track Name: Maybe Our Days Are Numbered
maybe our days are numbered
maybe I want you back
maybe these words are empty
maybe I don't mind if you see someone else

ah, are we going against the grain again?
ah, are we growing up against the grain?

you're building those walls around you
they no longer see the light that shined so bright
you build but you can't afford to
so i ask if i can stay with you tonight

ah, are we going against the grain again?
ah, are we growing up against the grain?

maybe our days are numbered
maybe I want you back

ah, are we going against the grain again?
ah, are we growing up against the grain?
