Track Name: Harriet
HARRIET DIED TOMORROW / CAME TO ME LAST WEEK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT / SHE TOLD ME "LOOK FOR THOSE WE'VE LOST IN THE MAGIC, IN THE WIND & IN THE LIGHT." / I FELT THE PAIN OF THE DYING / KNOWING EVERY LOSS WAS A DEATH DEEP INSIDE OF ME / AND I FELT POWERLESS TO STOP IT / BUT THERE'S POWER IN THE MOURNING & THE GRIEF / MARGERY WOULD YOU DANCE WITH ME? / I FEEL YOU STANDING AT THE BACK OF ME / YOUR EYES BRING OUT THE VERY BEST IN ME / TUCKIN IN MY SHIRT AND SINGIN "THANK YOU, PLEASE, A PLEASURE TO BE SEEN." / NOW THIS IS THE BEGINNING / AND THE BEGINNING'S ALWAYS HELD BACK BY A CERTAIN KIND OF HARD / ITS LIKE NO ONE'S EVER FELT LIKE THE BEFORE / EXCEPT FOR THE SCARS ACROSS OUR HEARTS / A SPIDER CAME TO DANCE WITH ME / HER STORY STRETCHING FROM THE BACK OF ME / I WAS ALONE BUT SHE WAS TRACKING ME / IN THE SHADOWS HEARING EVERYTHING THAT I SAID SILENTLY / I SANG INTO THAT GHOSTLY BREEZE / "MARGERY WOULD YOU DANCE WITH ME?..." / HARRIET PASSED LAST WINTER / TAUGHT ME TO NOTICE THEN TO LOOK AGAIN / SHE SAID YOU'LL FIND ME IN THE BEAUTY OF THE BRANCHES AS THEY BEND INTO THE WIND / YOU'LL FIND ME IN THE WAY THE WIND CARESSES ALL THE GRASSES AND YOUR SKIN
Track Name: Like Weather
PIECES OF THE FUTURE LIE LIKE WEATHER ON YOUR FACE / SOMETIMES I THINK OF HOW IT WAS BEFORE / SOMETIMES I'VE OVERTAKEN BY THE WAVE THAT BRINGS THE CHANGE / THAT FLAVOR OF THE MOUTH AGAINST THE SHOTE / AND IT STRETCHES MY SKIN WHEN I TRY TO PREDICT EVERYTHING / I TRY TO SEE THE NIGHTTIME FROM THE DAY / WE'VE ALL TAKEN MEASURES TO PROTECT WHAT WE PREFER / AND HOARDED THOSE WE'VE LOVED ALONG THE WAY / I WENT TO SLEEP IN HOPES I'D WAKE UP AND BE STRONG / BEHIND MY LIDS WOULD CHANGE WHAT NEEDED CHANGE / AND IT STRETCHES MY SKIN WHEN I TRY TO MAKE YOU EVERYTHING / I TRY TO SQUEEZE THE NIGHTTIME FROM THE DAY / I HOPE YOU TASTE WHAT I AM NOT / HOPE YOU EAT ALL THAT YOU WANT / HOPE THAT WE DON'T CLOSE OUR EYES OR LOOK AWAY / THERE'S YEARS BENEATH OUR FEET / AND I STILL FLINCH WHEN YOU FLASH YOUR TEETH / BABY, WE HAVE CHOICE BUT CAN'T CHOOSE NOT TO CHANGE / BECAUSE YOU'RE BIGGER THAN ME / AND I WON'T BE THE WIND AND THE SKY AND THE SEA / BUT IT'S NOT ABOUT WHAT WE SAY IT'S ABOUT WHAT WE BELIEVE / AND IT'S NOT ABOUT DODGING RAIN / CUZ WE'RE GONNA GET WET EITHER WAY / SO LET GO LIKE WEATHER, WHAT'S BETTER THAN MORE OF THE SAME? / LET GO LIKE WEATHER, A TETHER WON'T HOLD BACK A NAME
Track Name: Sun
THE FIRST STEPS WERE A WALK IN THE LIGHT / THE NEXT FEW TORE THE DAY FROM THE NIGHT / AND THERE NEEDED TO BE WAVES BUT THEY GREW SO BIG IN SIZE / THEY SCATTERED MY BODY ACROSS THE SKY / AND I WON'T BE UNDONE: / I TURNED MY BACK ON THE SUN / NOTHING'S EVER SIMPLE BUT THE SIMPLE TRUTH WAS / THAT I TURNED MY BACK ON THE SUN / I BECAME A CLOUD OF CRYSTALS CATCHING STARLIGHT / BEFORE I WAS AWARE I COULD CONTROL MYSELF / MOVE THRU MY MIND IN THE DARK NIGHT / BECAUSE I COULD BARELY SPEAK / I ATE ALL MY GUMS AND MY TONGUE AND MY TEETH / LAYING UNDERWATER FEELING PISSED BECAUSE I JUST COULDN'T BREATHE / AFTER A LONG TIME I OPENED MY EYES / THAT WAS FUCKING HARD CUZ THEY WERE SHUT SO FUCKING TIGHT / AND I WANTED TO BE BRAVE AND I WANTED TO BE RIGHT / I NEEDED TO MAKE UP MY FUCKING MIND / I AM THE ONE / WHEN PUSH COMES TO SHOVE / WHO KNOWS MY EVERY ANGLE AND THE DEPTH OF DAMAGE DONE / I TURNED MY BACK ON THE SUN
Track Name: Identity (by the Hidden Spots)
BOMBARDED BY MEDIA / WE'RE BOMBARDED BY LIFE / BY TEARS AND BEERS AND ALL THE FEARS / YOU'VE LOCKED UP INSIDE ALL YOUR YEARS / AND IT'S HARD TO FIND YOURSELF INSIDE / I SEE YOU STRUGGLE WITH YOUR IDENTITY / WE'VE TRIED ON SO MANY HATS / JUST TRYING TO FIND ONE THAT FITS / NO MATTER HOW DEEP WE DIG INSIDE / THERE'S ALWAYS A PART OF US THAT PAYS THE RENT / I SEEM TO STRUGGLE WITH MY IDENTITY.
