Track Name: Long Shadows
Oh Long shadows
Come and take me home
I'm that one
That doesn't know where he belongs
Tendrils of your mind
Travel through space and time
Oh long shadows
That number you called was mine

The days they pass
Whether you like it or not
I'm just pushing through this life
No talk or thought
I'm surrounded by everyone here
But I feel so alone
Oh long shadows
Come and take me home



I'm living out your fame
You know what's tough
Is growing up
I'm thinking of your name
How you shows me a mother's love
Look around you now
My good friend
How does it feel?
To see everything
And know it's gonna end



The trees, they're floating
It's to me they call
Whither away, my ill fate
But don't take it all
Is there shame in heartbreak?
Is there shame in breaking hearts?
Oh long shadows
My love departs



I'm living out your fame
You know what's tough
Is growing up
I'm thinking of your name
How you shows me a mother's love
Look around you now
My good friend
How does it feel?
To see everything
And know it's gonna end
And know it's gonna end
Track Name: Can't You Tell
I don't deserve
My wild world
The little motions
Of my present, unfurled
I'm floating up
But I'm looking back down
Don't you see, I'm doing the best I know how

Can't you tell
I'm happy
Can't you tell
I am not

I'm speaking backwards
I swear I'm not playing a fool
Don't be a burden
It's my number one rule
What do I mean?
To everyone I've known
Speed through the bad ones
Slow the good moments down
Track Name: Desert Driver
Burning fire
Holy liar
Don't even care to explain
I see through your eyes
Into the man that's so insane

You're reaching for a man
That you know you cannot have
Careful rider
Don't go much higher
He said with a laugh

I'm the one
They call
The desert driver
You're calling out my name
The name of a liar
Everything you've heard, is true
But unlike me
Don't let this world get to you

Stare into
Both of my God-forsaken eyes
Peer again
You're going to see
Your own familiar lies
Push me down
Into the ground
And show me who you are
Careful rider
Your future's brighter
As he stopped the car

I'm the one
They call
The desert driver
You're calling out my name
The name of a liar
Everything you've heard, is true
But unlike me
Don't let this world get to you
Track Name: Satellite
Look, into your stars
Don't you know?
Who we are
When you shut your eyes
Who do you see?

In my life
I will see
In my mind
I will feel
Of my time
I will be
With my kind
I will heal

Floating, it's the satellite
Won't you hope to know
All that you might
What caused you to lose your drive?
It's tough to say
Are they even alive?

In my life
I will see
In my mind
I will feel
Of my time
I will be
With my kind
I will heal
Track Name: Hill Country
You have to find
That piece of mind
You had to know
That this is home

The air is still
The clouds upon the hill
The moment's near
But I'll never be back here
No I'll never be back here
No I'll never be back here
Track Name: Push It
I'm at the age where I move on
I finished playing my old song
Do I have to worry where I've been?
Will I ever be back here again?


Help me friend, I'm not the best
Is it time to push It?
To the next

I failed it all
But I passed the test
Is it time to push It?
To the next


I've been on this side before
I'm heart strong but will-poor
I'm avoiding it all in my mind
I'm telling myself- it ain't time


Help me friend, I'm not the best
Is it time to push It?
To the next

I failed it all
But I passed the test
Is it time to push It?
To the next
