Track Name: The Revelation; The Reckoning
Is this the only way to shake the shame?
By disregarding the pain?

Today is the reckoning; a slight change in the air.
(Will I cease to be the man that I used to be?)
And someone else will appear instead of just me.
You will see. It's just the way things are,
(send a rocket to the moon,)
and the way they're meant to be.
(cause all the things you love here on Earth
end too soon.)

A name is only that, it's just a name.
I've done all I can, but it's coming
time to prove myself again.
This legacy is damned.

This losing streak is beyond all reason.
You will love this season.
And for the pious will all their bad runs?
A spark of hope; a gift comes.

I will fight for it.
This curse will be lifted.
Track Name: Dopefish Lives
Will I stand alone?
Will the levee break?
No it won't.

Oh, the waters rose and ruined all I cared for.
All my prized possessions in hotels on the shore.
I only just remembered halfway back from the drive.
Waking up from dreams like this makes me feel alive.

Will I stand alone?
Will I ever break?
No I won't.
Track Name: Nature of the Break
A veil has lifted. Now I see a fire
that won't extinguish until Fall.

Foolish, careless.
Wisest isn't the word I'd use to describe this.
Not at all.

Oh, he must have had his purpose here
for deciding how to set this.

Foolish, careless.
These are the words I'd use to describe this,
and the fall.

Laughed at I was during my ordeal,
but cast aside, I no longer feel foolish,
or careless, but wisest.
I am the one who is in control now of it all.

Nature gave me this gift to change things,
but didn't foresee that nature would end up
breaking me.
Track Name: Houseplant, Homepage
Houseplant, Homepage.
Hard not to notice this coming of age.
Wayfair, just there.
Darkest of nights asleep in the air.

For the first time in my life,
I now believe in Self.
I just wish you had believed.

I am the one who has always been
with you the most. Leave it for now,
and let's drink to this toast.

I know what you're thinking.
"I can't break this thing with him.
I tried, and still I cried."
I'm far from forgiveness.
I have one live to give away.
'Til death do I part.

Let's head for the coast.
Track Name: Murphy's Law
A time to shine has come at last.
The smell of luck and newborn grass.
Amy Morton...
Hopes at first are made to last.
Arising shadows will be passed.
They're history for our books.

This losing streak is beyond all reason.
You will love this season.
And for the pious with all their bad runs?
A spark of hope; a gift comes.

A time to shine has come at last.
(This losing streak is beyond all reason)
We will cut the newborn grass this season.
(You will love this season)
And hopes at first are history for our books.
(And for the pious with all their bad runs?)
A spark of hope; a gift comes.
Track Name: H.M.S. Skeletor
You and me. Are we to be?
For now, you are not ever in my lonely world
with me and you. Both true, and still blue.
For now, I am not ever in your lonely world.

You are not alone in this.
I've tried before to see what's in your eyes.
Are you?

You and me. Are we to be?
For now, we are not together in this lonely world.
It's all for naught.

With you. In you.
For now, I am.
