Jack Rabbit 04:28
Hey, no, I don’t know where I come from Go, this is not where I belong So, perhaps I’ll get a better skin No, you gotta love the one you got you gotta love the one you’re in This is the reason why I always lock, walk the reason why I never talk, it’s off it throws my balance to the wind it makes my luminescence dim and if I don’t follow the sway of life I’ll be tossed, bossed, crossed, closed, confused and used I’ll be shot, bought, wrought, forgot and end up bruised I’ll be lost Jack Rabbit Jack Rabbit Now I watch the trees swaying in their open place taste the sweeter air inside my day lay out in the meadows empty space I learn to take in all those rays I learn to take in all those rays but if I don’t follow the sway of life I’ll be tossed, bossed, crossed, closed, confused and used I’ll be shot, bought, wrought, forgot and end up bruised I’ll be lost, I’ll be lost, I’ll be lost Jack Rabbit Jack Rabbit Jack Rabbit

Craving 05:32
Gold is the color of your eyes And you let them do all of the talkin’ I am swept, you undo my every move As I try, try my hardest to prove That you are the one that I dream of and you are the sin that I crave, love I pull my innocence out of my chest And hope to god I don’t die trying Those lips they betray their owner Can’t decide nor abide by the rules Curving up in a sly seductive way With crimson beaded veins that lie beneath the prey You are putting light on affections Overwhelmed, I stumble in the flash I’ll take you, I’ll take you, if you want Do you really want me to? I’ll take you if you want Cos you are the one that I dream of and you are the sin that I crave, love I pull my innocence out of my chest And hope to god I don’t die trying And if fear of the past holds you down Believe me, I’ve been there too Just put your cool hands on my face And I promise it won’t be a waste Cos you are the one that I dream of and you are the sin that I crave, love I pull my innocence out of my chest And hope to god I don’t die trying

Gravity 04:34
Do you remember the first rain when things were still the same? Haven’t had much time to regain and climb again And I don’t know what’s next I don’t know what’s next Gravity dreams are coalescing darlin’ it seems so long, unending gravity weaves the tangled strings and I don’t know what’s next So slip beneath the covers slip beneath to dream so slip beneath, so slip beneath let the rain sing you to sleep I don’t know what’s next I don’t know what’s next I don’t know what’s next I don’t know what’s next

Wooden Bones 04:29
Well the wood on the branches is rotten and our love can’t hold it anymore so we fake all the pauses as we sit on the moss on the floor Don’t let the wooden bones crack Don’t let them tear apart Don’t let the leaves fall Cos we’ll be bare we’ll be bare, we’ll be bare, we’ll be bare bare If we set our aim for the head we’ll embed every bullet in the wall and if you decide to run ahh hell you better pay the toll Don’t let the wooden bones crack Don’t let them tear apart Don’t let the leaves fall Cos we’ll be bare we’ll be bare, we’ll be bare, we’ll be bare bare bare, bare, bare...

What can I say? when you’re out without me riding alone riding with friends whose bed are you in well I guess it depends the hours I wait up at night don’t really matter to you why should I bother to put up a fight cos it’s making me the fool I don’t know how to say goodbye I don’t know what is truth or lies If you come back to me I promise you’ll see my bright side I’ll laugh for you, I’ll smile for you Oh I’ll make it right You’re on the other side down and under you went right out of my sight you are the day and I am the night now all I do is sit and I stew and keep digging, I keep digging this hole I don’t know how to say goodbye I don’t know what is truth or lies you came and went and left me bent it’s all a game with a different name but hey, it’s all the same to me it must have been your eyes my social butterfly
