Track Name: Penumbra
A poet picks his words with care
With calculating poise
His woman too, he might calculate
But when he's done, he's done
A sucker: I got caught up by love
Was it real? Did it count?
You sing 'bout how you killed the man
Does that mean it's done, it's done

How many times have I thought these thoughts?
If I cared I might count
You might have killed the man dear
But he killed you too

An artist pushes paint around
The expression's in the wrist
He'll flick his brush to make you weep
But when he's done, he's done
I might of got what I deserve
For fucking with your head
Still I can't help but believe
That we're not done, not done
Track Name: Treehouse
Late night, come home
Feeling fine
A few jars down, played
Guess it went all right
But sitting in the dark
I can't help but stare
At the faces in the cloth
The faces in my head

I am sorry to put you through this
It's not your fault
Something takes hold, and then I'm caught
And before you know I'm
I'm going down, going down, going down
And I can't get back up
No I can't get back

Alone all day waiting
By the line
Got caught on a claw, bled
Locked outside
But sitting in the dark
I can't help but crave
A drink with a friend
But a friend I can't find here
Track Name: Ribbon
Lately I've been running
Much too fast
Eyes down, never watching
Never looking back
I guess it comes naturally to you

Those are the longest days

Everything is turmoil again
It's all collapsed
Focussed too much on one piece
And saw the gaps
But silence is louder without your breath

Those are the longest days

So long, snake: It's time to flow
Hello, bird: It's time you soared

So afraid of failure
So scared of success
Heard some advice
Took it from the best:

Get up
Man up
And carry on
