Track Name: Diggers
Let's drive somewhere so aimlessly and back
To hear the playful sounds out the windows we go past
And maybe we will laugh so hard we cry
How come it hurts so bad
I'll take it as a sign

Moving backwards was it all just a lucid dream?
Listen closely open up and let's just see

These kids are not yet dead inside at all
So look back there behind you be careful you don't fall
To move yourself with strangers in the dark
What is it we all share you gave away this part

Can we act like stupid kids and animals
Paint a picture dig our feet now and feel our soles

If we realize all the thousand eyes
If we realize all the other lives
Stop to close our eyes
Sever all the ties
To a world we've known
But we have outgrown

Let's drive somewhere so aimlessly and back
To hear the playful sounds out the windows we go past
And maybe we will laugh so hard we cry
How come it hurts so bad I'll take it as a sign
This time it won't be simple what it seems
Make the short house tall if that is what you dream
Before we all grow up and we are gone
You wake up in cold sweat forget us in the dawn

Moving backwards was it all just a lucid dream
Listen closely open up now and let's just see
Can we act like stupid kids and animals
Paint a picture dig our feet now and feel our soles
Track Name: Red Roots
I looked out my window and I saw it on the grass
Drifted oh so slowly by the time it came at last
You were down in the ground
Knew I recognized the face that I had seen before
Sunken eyes and smiling mouth I opened up the door
My heart may pound but not a sound

Don't worry about me no more
I'll be there with you I'm sure

Tore open the earth and let me know why I was there
Said I'd lived a long life but it was my time to share
My body 'round with the ground
Called upon the last words that I've spoken to this day
Knew I'd been a good man didn't find a need to pray
I said at last it's come to pass

Don't spare mind for my mistakes
Bear them with me to the grave
Why do I still feel afraid
All part of a great cascade

You rise you cry you come to blows
In hoping I come soon
I stayed there by your side in life
I want to stay now too
Track Name: The Spell
As all around the world burns down we walk on by
A couple's kiss it will be drowned under the sky
Who's to say what isn't real?
Who decides what we will feel?

If we all lie we'll get on fine a little while
Until we break the tensile strength that we hang by
Who will be there when we fall
Bear the burden when we call
If there's no one can you tell
Everyone's under the spell

But you could search a hundred years
And not resolve each other's fears
So stop reciting little lines
Each fire dies in its own time
Track Name: Liars
Lonely ghost sees the only host
And he knows that he won't stay
Hundred years homes will disappear
Leaving nothing in their wake

Walk these halls and sees the problem
All the secrets still they guard them
Do they love or are they liars
They'll play house 'til catches fire

For a lifetime you hope you might find
A place you can call home
Desperation a conflagration of
How you thought you'd love

Labor of lust will bear a child
One day too their doubts will pile
Do they love or are they liars
They'll play house 'til catches fire

I hope it's untrue
I pray it's untrue
Track Name: One
When will we become our future selves
When will we become what people tell us
You will be a father a loving man
You will be a doctor a helping hand

All our friends got married down the lane
You'll be soon don't carry this guiltless shame
Though we've all grown up you are the same
When we all give up you hide your pain

Little child
You're the only one
Look at we've done
To ourselves

Look into the trees the wind that blows through
All the little leaves it's not too close to
Make a brand new start don't mind the off tune
Beating of your heart that slows too soon
