Track Name: Cascades
Those cascades forming in the storm that followed you
they were chasing summer
and they would bring the thaw of spring to you
if you let them
dragged you down and in the mud that flooded you
your eyes were starless
didnt' shine like they were meant to do
and the rest is silence

It came crashing
we came rushing in
too dark to see it
but it was written on the wall
you prayed for sunlight
I brought the rain
endless dividing
we're in the middle of a war
but still it grows
and still it glows
I'm on your side dear
I'm on your side

The last man standing on the plains of solitude
with the iron smile
he's walking all the way to you
with a makeshift heart
and now he swears he'd give it back to you
if he only could

It came crashing
we came rushing in
too dark to see it
but it was written on the wall
you prayed for sunlight
I brought the rain
endless dividing
we're in the middle of a war
but still it grows
and still it glows
I'm on your side dear
I'm on your side
Track Name: The Kid
I'm mad at the kid but I have to be kind to him
I'm mad at the simple answers
and the way he falls for everything
I'm mad at the kid but I have to do right by him
I'm mad at his black and white
the lonely nights
in isolation tank

I know he's trying to help
he's only trying to help

stop and start you're not that smart
if only words could change a heart
you'll kill me
I know you'll kill me

I'm mad at the kid
I'm mad at the kid

I'm mad at the sky I'm mad at the moon
that keeps me up when I should shut my eyes
the clouds that shift the shape they bring before my window
my weeping willow
my weeping willow

stop and start you're not that smart
if only words could change a heart
you'll kill me
I know you'll kill me

I'm mad at the kid
He's only trying to help
I know
Track Name: You're Still In My Blood
The vicious circle is always open
and I'm fixing something that was never broken
Someday I'll be leaving too
when I break myself in two

I took your side flying over
hallowed wasteland, undiscovered

Someday I'll believe it too
When l give myself to whom

You're still in my blood
You're still my blood

The vicious circle is always open
I've words of wisdom that I've never spoken
someday I'll stop loving you
then I'll break myself in two

You're still in my blood
You're still my blood

I wanted to see it so bad
I tried to squeeze it tight
with my weak hands
hold me up with rope around the neck
a song to lift me up
a song to drop me down

You're still in my blood
You're stIll my blood
Track Name: Before The Summer
I'm sorry he doesn't go down on you
like I used to
and he doesn't like your smell the tomboy shirts
and your hair bright red
I thought I was your rock
I was your island
and you were a drop of sound
in my ocean of silence

Promise you won't leave before the summer's through

I'm sorry he doesn't caress your hair
and that you don't sleep as well
as we used to
with your head cradled on my chest
that I'm still the single man in this world
who can take you there
no I do miss you

I thought I was your proof
I was your bias
and you my altitude
my arctic climate
I can't even look at you
or picture when times were good
remember the fights we had
or January when you said

promise you won't leave before the summer's through

I'm sorry if he doesn't understand
he took you from someone else
someone you can't let go
and that love it will show

I thought I was your sun
I was your black hole
I thought you were my moon, my gravity
my satellite sister, I could pull you through infinity with me
hurl you through the misery
the rhythm of the arcs and the constellation scenery

but stop calling me when you're with him
stop calling me when he's asleep
it weakens me

Promise you won't leave before the summer's through
