Track Name: Toy Chest
Stumbling down that same old worn out path
Trying to fit puzzle pieces that don't match
That old toy chest with the treasures that he loved best
He forgets
Her red doll house with toy furniture and matching blouse
No one recounts
And though the mindset has changed
Our hearts stay the same
Its still something we're longing for

So when I see you here's how you'll know
That I tried to let it go

Fifteen dollars in the bag
I got my money but my money's bad
Eighteen reasons to be mad
But you still love me and that's why I'm glad
Three years that we've spent
I know you're waiting and you don't know yet
One thing I can say
Is that our love will never be in vain

So when I see you here's how you'll know
That I tried to let it go

Three years that we've spent
I know you're waiting and you don't know yet
One thing I can say
Is that our love will never be in vain
Track Name: Outro
Because the world is noisy it makes my choice easier
When I'm with you I leave cause I don't need to breathe the toxic waste cloud
Love waste like this don't need a kiss you're love waste
Love waste like this don't need a kiss you're love waste
Track Name: Being Swept Up (In the Golden Tide)
I used to think desperately
That the world was staring back at me
Self involved or self obsessed
I don't know why it's success
Every time that A train arrives
Another hundred people step inside
It's such a crying shame to have to die
But everybody gets a chance to ride

Half of the world is having so much fun
While the other half sweeps up the crumbs
You'll never see me / leave us alone
You poison the water / seeds that we've sown

Will you sink down underneath the golden tide
Or will you climb back towards the lonely purple sky

Our little world is so removed
I feel bad but we're not moved
Track Name: Warped Buddhism
You've got some ego for thinking
You ought to get what you deserve
Nobody taught you the world would exhaust you
Things that you want to be able
To have come true never do

You do you and I'll do me
Warped ideology
Fake Buddhism
Christmas list
Anything that you wish
Anything that you wish
You stay high and I stay low
Can't escape the undertow
Gurus in your office pool
Yoga mats and vegetables
Automatic decimals
Automatic decimals

Cleansing your soul
And you're stacking your stones
Saying your Oms
For a way to change things
And get what you must deserve
Track Name: Stuck In A Lie
Opposite your smile is an inside-out grin
That's fooling everyone and reeling us in
Underneath your cool air is a calculated blast
Glad at least that I'm clear
Clear out of your path

Stuck in a lie
Stuck in the lie of your smile

How could I have planned this
What sense would that have made
The one who was abandoned
Now the one who feels no pain
Sneaky and manipulative
Tragic acting side
I hope that you've convinced yourself
You never lied

He's gonna wait
Until the trees turn back to gold a hundred times
Never to stray
Until the leaves all burn away and the oceans rise
She's gonna watch
All the other ones swept aside / misunderstanding why
Chances lost
And she'll never know that she was

Stuck in a lie
Stuck in the lie of your smile
Track Name: Tomorrow's Sunshine
I'm done with doubting myself and asking for help cause nobody cares now
Isn't it funny how they just run around like a balloon letting air out
Inflate my ego until I need a refill and rise to the surface
I used to have a few friends but they got the bends now I just have curses

Like a balloon that's floating around
You're looking for somewhere that can't be found
Nobody knows what we're doing here
They play it safe and don't get too near

So here's what I do
I go to the zoo in the monkey cages you can find me
I bang on the glass
I open the latch I'm looking for something shiny

Tomorrow's sunshine is here today
Tomorrow's good times are here to stay

Like a good book that's too long to read
You tear out my pages and take what you need
Empty containers gathering sand
Shredded road maps and mountains of cans

So here's what I do
I go to the zoo in the monkey cages you can find me
I bang on the glass
I open the latch I'm looking for something shiny
Track Name: Come So Far
You must be losing it
If you thought I was giving up
Cause even though we've come so far
That was just the easy part

I'm always around
Hanging around
Making you smile
I'm only a friend
Don't be afraid
Everything ends
You got stuck in my head
Like a new song
Like a loose peg
What difference does it make
Whether you give
Whether you take

Lord knows that I've tried to be humble
It really doesn't matter
The only thing that I believe
Has a chance to save us
Is being humble
And understanding our place in the world

Are you sure you're choosing this
Cause you thought I was perfect then
But even though you've seen my flaws
Still you choose to play the odds

I'm always around
Hanging around
Making you smile
I'm only a friend
Don't be afraid
Everything ends
You got stuck in my head
Like a new song
Like a loose peg
What difference does it make
Whether you give
Whether you take

There are so many things that we could do
And so little that we choose to
Lord knows that I've tried to be humble
It really doesn't matter
The only thing that I believe
Has a chance to save us
Is being humble
And understanding our place in the world
