Track Name: Green Box
Where do you go?
Where do you go?
Where do you go when I don't know where you've gone?

Oh, my God
Oh, my God
Oh, my God, why have I done what I've done?

There's no stone
There's no stone
There's no stone for me to weep

Down by the waterfall
Down by the waterfall
Down by the waterfall, I'm going to set you free

Hanging demons on a crucifix
Without ashes on your head
Just a will that's too damn thick
And seas too rough to swim
Track Name: The Flame
I'm the flame drowning in the wax
I'm the lie strangled by the facts
We're the winter wishing for the spring
The careless stranger pouring you your drinks
So drink up, drink up
So drink up, drink up

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Just when I thought the urges didn't stand a chance
They took over with their under-worldly like dance
4/4, six, six, six 4/4, six, six, six
They'll be pouring us our drinks
So drink up, drink up
So drink up, drink up

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Track Name: Good Book, Folklore
How do those little hummingbird wings
Make it through the devilish winds?
When is enough enough?
Is it when I'm too scared to act tough?
I don't know, I don't know
Do I believe there's more? Do you?
Do I believe there's more? Do you?
I don't know, I don't know
Good natured thoughts
Tainted by our inability to act
Is our good book folklore? Or is fact?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
(I wish I knew)

Our consciences putting us to shame
When it's the others that we blame
We keep these feelings in a frame
So we can confess them in a booth and forget our names

Can this measly canoe Stand up to these twenty foot swells?
Can the breeze bring us the beauty of those ringing church bells?
I don't know, I don't know
How can we call this place home? Why can't we go?
That time has come and gone
Can we carry on with the show?
I don't know, I dont know

Our consciences putting us to shame
When it's the others that we blame
We keep these feelings in a frame
So we can confess them in a booth and forget our names
Track Name: Changing Front
The storm is approaching
The air reeks of fear
The subtle colors of the sky
Becoming what we hear
Every minute another sick, twisted dream
Where we're all tied down
With no mouths to scream
Love is a feeling
Not an emotion to show
We're here for the moment
It feels natural to grow

The sunshine is approaching
There's a bouquet in the air
The vivid colors of the sky
Becoming what we hear
Every second is a beautiful scene
The cameras are rolling
We're unfolding onscreen
Love is an emotion
Not something that comes and goes
We're here for our lifetimes
It feels natural to grow
Track Name: Autumn's Blessing
I'm afraid of what you might ask of my will
You're so seductive in your ways
It took years for truth's buds to blossom
By the time they did, autumn had spread her wings
September carried me with the changing of the leaves
The colors became one with me
Track Name: Fair-Weathered Faith
Your God complex runs deep
Like the roots of insecurity
In which you lay your head
Claiming fear of judgement doesn't exist
I think twice about it
I think twice that it doesn't exist

Why?

Your fair-weathered faith
Will joust you off of your high horse
Your conflicted love
Floats with hollow words
Face the fear of living alone
You don't think twice about it
You don't think twice that it doesn't exist

Why?

We don't know when we're gonna leave
We don't know when we're gonna believe
Track Name: Creature of Habit
I'm to blame for all I've done
I've tried to pawn it off
The truths are heavy
And spirits weak
So I've kept them buttoned up
Trying to wash a mans trust away
From his petty little hands
A pathetic mess
It was all in your head
Polished and well dressed
As I carried the casket
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)a
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)

I'm a creature of habit
Refuse to stay locked in this cage
Despite all of my wrongdoings
I still can't manage to turn the page

I'll crawl into your brain
Through your transparent eyes
Rearrange whatever I'd like
Because I'm too much of a coward
To face you myself
I keep you buttoned up
I've never shared anything pure
With anyone. (Not even myself)
No one will find you tied to cinder blocks
At the bottom of ponkapoag
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)
I've kept them buttoned up
(We've kept them buttoned up)

I'm a creature of habit
Refused to stay locked on this cage
Despite all of my wrongdoings
I can't manage to turn the page
Track Name: Green Box Pt. II
Where do you go?
Have I been where you've gone?
Oh, my God
Is there a reason for what I've done?
There's no stone
But I still weep
Down by this waterfall
Where you'll never be
I'll find you someday
I'll leave you still giving
For hopefully you've met Peace
Track Name: Winter Solstice Pt. II
We all need someone to relate to
We all need someone to be
We all need some hole to climb into
We'll return to the place where we were meant to die
Up past the silos, we're hoping you follow
Down through the oak trees, into the hollows

We all need a crutch to lean on
We all have a pathetic need to be loved
We all need a cause to be part of
We don't need...

We don't know when we're gonna leave
We don't know when we're gonna believe
