Track Name: Taliesin
So, you wanted out
No winter in this house
The things I never said
Well, guess we’ll build again

Taliesin
What didn’t I do
Good grief, you bury me deep

And now the fire’s out
And now I’m all worn out
The things I never said
Well, guess I made my bed

Taliesin
What didn’t I do
Good grief, I guess they told you

So you took refuge
But did you ask me to
So you took refuge
And now I’ve lost you

So you took refuge
But did you ask me to
So you took refuge
And now I’ve lost you
Track Name: Fine Line
I’m alright, i’m ok
Would you believe me
Anyway
So put on your smile
And wear it for a little while

It’s a fine line
Between faking it
And breaking it

So put on your smile
And wear it for a little while

By, by, by
By, by, by

This is how you get by
This is how you get by
This is how you get by, by, by, by

This is how you get by
This is how you get by
This is how you get by, by, by, by

So put on your smile
Track Name: Builder
I’m done convincing you
What about the things you do
I thought we’d build a life for two
What about the things you do

I’m done with existential woes
And the seasons come and go
Seems like the architecture’s wrong
But I know that I can carry on

When I stop, and I see
This mess in front of me
Nevermind that I lost my mind
Finally put the pieces
And build something
Hold on tight, play it right
‘Til I find my way

I don’t know how to play this game
And I know I can’t afford the shame
Seems like it all went up in flames
Seems like I gotta start all over

When I stop, and I see
This mess in front of me
Nevermind that I lost my mind
Finally put the pieces
And build something
Hold on tight, it’s alright
‘Til I find my way

Oh say, can’t you see
What this new normal means
Nevermind
Lost my way
Cry hail, Mary

For the life
For the life, for the life of me
Track Name: Kinship
Soon you’ll have come and gone
But who do you think you are

Why

You say you want sympathy
But when were you there for me

Why

It’s not the olden days
It’s more than a last name
You may be next of kin
But you can’t phone it in

It’s not the olden days
It’s more than a last name
What’s the use in faking
Let it go

Why
Track Name: Scout
I saw some movement in
You said, that you saw it too
All I know
That I meant it, too
Come with me

So what, you made a mistake
I swear, that it’s not too late
All I know I won’t let you fall
If you come with me

I’ll be, i’ll be there
Don’t be, don't be scared
I’ll be, i’ll be there
Don’t be, don't be scared

I know you’ll find your way
And when you do, they’ll say
I know you found your way
And in the meantime, you’ll be safe

You’re such a
Creature of comfort
All I know is it breeds
Familiarity

I know you’ll find your way
And when you do, they’ll say
I know you found your way
And in the meantime, you’ll be safe

You’ll be safe
Track Name: Blood Is Red
Why don’t you go
And clear your head, you said
Alright, I guess I’ll go
I said

Climbed in the car
Engine ignite
And by my side you rode for
A little while

Took to the road
Vanishing point
It stretched for miles
Like my sorrow
Maybe if the miles are high
I’ll forget the pain for
A little while

The night is black
But your blood is red

Took to the wood
Camouflage black
But then headlights show doe eyes
Staring back
Their knowing look
Bright like the stars
Bright like I knew you once
Were before

The night is black
But your blood is red

It’s time to go
Then you said
The rubber’s worn
It’s time to rest my weary head
So home we went
And by my side
An empty seat
Just me and the lonely night

The night is black
But your blood is red
Track Name: Good Intentions
I’ll make it up
I’ll make it up to you

Whatever happened to
Happily, ever after
There is so much more
That we could be

But you give me the runaround
Well, what’s to come
If I could convince you that
I am more than
Good intentions

But you dive so low
And I just don’t know
When you dive so low
And you dive so low

Whatever happened to
Happily, ever after
There is so much more
That we could be

But you give me the runaround
Well, what’s to come
If I could convince you that
I am more than
Good intentions
But you dive so low
And I just don’t know
When you dive so low
And you dive so low

When you dive so low

I’ll make it up
I’ll make it up
I’ll make it up
All up to you

I’ll make it up
Or we’ll break it up
I’ll make it up
All up to you

I’ll do better next time
I am more than good intentions

Bet on me

Just don’t tell me it’s the last time
I am more than good intentions

Bet on me
