Track Name: Andaman Sea
And then I thought,
"If this is it, then let it come."

These are just lines on a map
I erase them
Up through the clouds till there's nothing
But the morning stars
Oh, when I woke it was night
I had lost a day
I thought of my mom
How she'd comb my hair
And pull the ticks away

And then I thought, "What moon is this below me tonight?"
And then i thought, " Which sea is this, black and silver in the moonlight?"
And then i thought that i could leave the dark, but didn't know how
And then i thought "No Shape, no time, no nothing can hold me now?"

And then I thought,
"If this is it, then let it come."
Track Name: Enlisted
Oh, I read it wrong
The look she gave when the fight began
Then her face drained
Like a wolf changes white in winter's bed

All men live and all men die
So why can't I?
Why Can't I?

I watched my hands fly from my side
Two giant white bats
That cut the line
And lighted in the black hills of men
And signed my name
As if i wasn't there
Now I guard the valley floor
And none can see me
And none shall pass

All men live and all men die
So why can't I?
Why Can't I?
Track Name: Tonight We Get To Sing Our Songs
Black church made of lava sings
Kids kiss and joke and skate on the steps
Why am i the lucky one -
To get a taste of the world has done?

A two tone siren rang
I found a harmony
And heard the church bells clang
Your voice shines like a sword
White-silver in the setting sun

The blue stone alleys wind
Saint Michael slays the devil for the millionth time
Why are we the lucky ones?
Tonight we get to sing our songs.
Track Name: Homeward Bound
Close your eyes and go to sleep
And when you wake, you'll wake to be
With all the dreams
You thought were torn down
Close your eyes
We're homeward bound

Windows down, the rain feels good
Light and warm as the evening comes
Blue hills, black fences all around
Close your eyes
We're homeward bound

Close your eyes and go to sleep
And when you wake, you'll wake to be
With all the dreams
You thought were torn down
Close your eyes
We're homeward bound
