Track Name: Off the Ground
you never let my feet off the ground
you always had to have
my six-tone patchwork wings pinned down
a boat without a mast

why do i keep on waiting
tomorrow never comes
this tired scene needs changing
this day needs a new sun

fourteen months and I smell just like you
afraid on stage
I want to taste the strangeness of the new
I want its pulse in my veins
Track Name: Straight and Steady
Maybe its just me
But I think we've got it good
Somewhere in between
Its understood

Push me pull me
its bringing me down
take me, break me
without a sound
but its you
straight and steady
keeps my heart at the ready
Track Name: Sticking Around
You act like it was before we stayed up
All night, just because you wanted to see the sun
Dusk and dusk, parties over time to go home to rust
Catch the first train back to where you're from

But I'm sticking around
Try as you might
I'm holding my ground
Going out with a fight

You still want what we're after
There's still a smile behind your laughter

I wish I could calm the fears that make you cringe
All those lonely years hiding behind that grin
Track Name: Building Cities
I've spent so much time
trying to get this life thing right
Day in, day out
working all through the night

But have I missed the point of it all
trying to grow up so tall

I think I lost you
before you could be found
I think I lost you
waiting around
For you to find me
but I was busy
building cities

I could be a king
I could have the world at my feet
I could be a lion
feasting on all that I see
