In It For The Ride (Brownstein)


Well, you’ve burned the bridge
But you’re still in it for the ride
I don’t know how you plan to get there
  with nobody by your side 

You thought you knew
You had me all figured out
You never asked me first
 before you spread it all around

Never reading the book
You made it up in your head
Maybe you should have read 
 the words they gave you instead

Don’t be bitter when all you want’s to get better
Life’s greatest treasure is to work together
Hold on tight, I’ll stand with you forever
‘Cause I don’t know how long 
So let’s keep on the keeping on forever
Forever

We’re all here because we’re the seekers of joy
Unlike the others, who only seek and destroy 
Seek and destroy

Don’t be missing the point or spoil the fun
Don’t take the feelings of yourself and make 
 them about everyone 

You can walk away or you can even pretend 
But everything you’ve said, it will catch you in the end 
In the end

Don’t be bitter when all you want’s to get better
Life’s greatest treasure is to work together
Hold on tight, I’ll stand with you forever
‘Cause I don’t know how long 
So let’s keep on the keeping on forever
Forever, Forever

Don’t be bitter when all you want’s to get better
Life’s greatest treasure is to work together
Hold on tight, I’ll stand with you forever
‘Cause I don’t know how long 
So let’s keep on the keeping on forever
Forever, Forever, Forever, Forever

BubaGum (Brownstein)
 

Upside Down (Brownstein)


I’d like to live my life on the road
Think of every city I’d get to know
We could take it fast or put it in slow
But either way I know that I got to go

I’d like to live my life aboard the ship 
I don’t think I’d ever get tired of it 
We could sway or we could soar 
Through the ocean far away from the shore 

You gotta take time to make time
‘Cause there ain’t no time for wastin’
All I’m sayin’ is I’d go crazy 
If I kept it the same as it ever was 
Same as it ever was

Or maybe I could be a clown 
Spinnin’ through the circus upside down
Or be the ballerina on the tips of my toes 
Be the swinger dancin’ the do-si-do 

I live in a world of fantasy
Sometimes my indecision gets the best of me
I’ve tried a lot, I’ve done a lot of things 
Maybe one day I will find my swing 

You gotta take time to make time
‘Cause there ain’t no time for wastin’
All I’m saying is I’d go crazy 
If I kept it the same as it ever was 
Same as it ever was


Hux (Brownstein, Battat)


How can I balance myself, distribute my weight?
Find a mix between repeat and create?
If what I’ve done has been done before
What does it mean if it came from my core?

Am I the product of what I see 
Or do I affect the things around me?
I’m lost but I know where I’m not
Maybe it’d be easier if I just forgot

Awakened by the answers
You thought you couldn’t find
The questions that circulate
Like a loop in your mind
The hidden cause behind the effect
Reveal to you the things you couldn’t detect

Somehow at the end of the day
I’m back to feel the same old way
It only feels real to me
I’ve come to find the others can’t see

What if maybe I’m just crazy? (you’re not crazy)
My thoughts unclear; my visions, hazy
Do you ever stop to think that you’re amazing?
It’s all within the different phrasing

Am I the product of what I see 
Or do I affect the things around me?
I’m lost but I know where I’m not
Maybe it’d be easier if I just forgot

Awakened by the answers
You thought you couldn’t find
The questions that circulate
Like a loop in your mind
The hidden cause behind the effect
Reveal to you the things you couldn’t detect


Lost and Found (Brownstein, Amarante)

 
I lost a dream that once was mine
I’ll wait until my thoughts align
Like presence in a place of proof
Love is never too aloof
 
I found you in an open door
You danced upon a burning floor
Like amber with a storm of ants
I’d like to trap you in a glance
 
I lost the place that I called home
It’s where I gathered all alone
Like wilderness in an empty room
Love is never too in bloom
 
I found your letters where you lay
You used to write my everyday
Like diamonds in a pit of sand
I'd like to take your open hand
 
I lost my fear of losing time
The ticking clock was too sublime
Like seconds in a spell of space
Love consumes what we erase
 
I lost the place that I called home
It’s where I gathered all alone
Like wilderness in an empty room
Love is never too in bloom
 
I found an inlet by the sea
The place you bore the best of me
Like sodium in a gust of wind
I'd like to learn your discipline


Figure It Out (Brownstein/Battat)


I’m here in my home
But I somehow feel unsure
I feel like the whole damn room
Looks different than before

I’m talkin’ bout the way the sun lights up the room
Everyday I wake up just a minute to soon
Well there’s a look in your eye that’s tellin’ me why
But I guess for now I’ll let it pass by

There is a time and a place for this
When it comes you better know what it is
You can circle around and around and about
‘Til we figure it out

I look at my life
And all the things I’ve done
I consider it bliss 
Now that we’re here with everyone

It’s easier to think of all the way things could have gone
Of all the things that I’ve done wrong
Everyone has something at home that they fear
So let’s have some fun as long as we’re here

There is a time and a place for this
When it comes you better know what it is
You can circle around and around and about
‘Til we figure it out, figure it out

There is a time and a place for this
When it comes you better know what it is
You can circle around and around and about
‘Til we figure it out

If things were more clear
What else could I see?
I couldn’t predict
Where my life would be

I’ll take each day as it comes and won’t turn back
I’ll think what I’ve got and not what I lack
I may rise or fall or lose it all
But I know in the end I’m gonna stand tall

There is a time and a place for this
When it comes you better know what it is
You can circle around and around and about
‘Til we figure it out

There is a time and a place for this
When it comes you better know what it is
You can circle around and around and about
‘Til we figure it out


Golden Gate Dancer (Brownstein/Amarante)


Golden Gate Dancer
Caught you in a glance
And there isn’t an answer
Except let her dance
You’re just fueling a fire
With no will to advance
It’s all pointless wisdom
When you’re caught in a trance

When walking on ashes
Your footsteps don’t fall
Bouncing down the ceiling
And running up walls
The mind will meander 
The heart never stalls
She meets you in wonder
Your dancer she calls

The melting of moments you’ve yet to acquire
Leaves motions for memories I know you’ll admire
And the endless false seconds and wistful desires
Are yours forever so long you conspire

Golden Gate sunshine
With golden blonde hair
She moves in a whisper
Allows you to stare
She moves without music
The smile she wears
She whispers again
She’s yours if you dare

The melting of moments you’ve yet to acquire
Leaves motions for memories I know you’ll admire
And the endless false seconds and wistful desires
Are yours forever so long you conspire

You know you should leave but your soul wants to stay
She paints the sky scarlet and dances away
You’re living in starlight at the end of the day
Just trapped in the moment with nothing to say

 
Watercolor Days (Brownstein/Battat)


Well I’ve been told there’s a longer road
Than just our eyes can see
Beyond that line there’s more to find
At least that’s what was told to me

So I set out towards the vanishing point
And I’m still on my way
Where I’ve been begins to blend
Like Watercolor Days

The canvas grows and time slows down
I’m home wherever my loves surrounds

As I push myself further
Down the endless road
I can see all the others
That have come here on their own

The landscape takes a new shape
A heavy world turns light
We lift each other up 
And follow our farthest sight

The canvas grows and time slows down
I’m home wherever my loves surrounds

I’ve been told we can open our eyes
Just a little bit wider
Just a little bit more

Well I’ve been told we can open our eyes
Just a little bit wider
Just a little bit more

The canvas grows and time slows down
I’m home wherever my love surrounds


Graceless (Brownstein, Amarante)


Well, I kept pennies and dollars and diamonds
Stitched in the mattress of mine
Trusted the worth of a woman
Who married a bottle of wine

She fell from the grace of her bottle
Drunk off the riches she stole 
Into the shadows she scurried 
With emptiness keeping her whole

Raymond’s writing a novel
Into the stories of old
Only a memory, only in mind
Searching for the gold

I put all my strength to the pedal
Ran from the weight of my past
Married by Grace in New England
Lived in the love we amassed

While Graceless was counting her pennies
Her bottle was waiting to strike
Betraying the chance of redemption
it whittled itself to a knife 

Raymond’s writing a novel
Into the stories of old
Only a memory, only in mind
Searching for the gold

I’d rather have grace than be graceless
I’d rather have faith than be faithless

The Northlands were kind to the speaker
A place he could wonder and wed
He soon lost the name of the stealer
Who took all the gold from his bed

While Graceless was dancing with anger
Her bottle was taking a note 
Jealousy kindly awaits her
And it soon made way for her throat

Raymond’s writing a novel
Into the stories of old
Only a memory, only in mind
Searching for the gold

Said, I’d rather have grace than be graceless
I’d rather have faith than be faithless

I’d rather have grace than be graceless
I’d rather have faith than be faithless
