Track Name: Coxton Yard
Feeling like a bag of bones
Shriveled up and cold
Nineteen years old

And draining out all of my insides
On the floor every night
Is supposed to make me feel alive
What would things be like
If I told you I wouldn't mind
Swinging from the tree outside
Would that be alright
Hope you don't mind

Feeling like a bag of bones
Shriveled up and cold
Nineteen years old

A train nearby reminds me I'm not the only one
Who feels left alone
At least he's got some place to go
A train nearby reminds me I'm not the only one
Who feels left alone
At least he's got some place to go
Track Name: Shed
You're cold like the blood that runs through your veins
I've been told
There's a black spot next to your name
You can't seem to erase
Shed your skin, change your face

You are the same
You are the same
Shed your skin
Find a better body to fit in

I lost track of all the times you betrayed
I lost faith in the friendships I have made
Drag you down and put you in your place
Shed your skin, change your face

Shed your skin
Find a better body to fit in
Shed your skin
Find a better body to fit in
Track Name: Flood Of '72
Time and distance blurs the image
So removed from the life you're used to
Flood of '72 casting shadows over you
A giant's despair
I see the valley beneath me
Revealing the life you still can't remember

Your best clothes hanging in the closet
A constant reminder
That our town that's underwater
A giant's despair

Time and distance return to the surface.
Resurface.
Track Name: Society
The disapproval's all I need
To keep my conscience clean
Turn your back on me
Turn your back on me

So you tell me just how to be
And I'll live my life accordingly
Follow blindly
My conscience clean
Society
Society
Track Name: You Can't Say Kingston Doesn't Love You
Talking to myself
But I can't hear over your mouth
I'm thinking out loud
"What's keeping around?
What's keeping me chained down to shapes and sounds,
Your parents' car, and your town?"

I'm nervous about staring across the room
And waiting for the walls to move
I don't see anybody else
And I don't need anybody else
I'm dirt beneath your feet.
Step all over me.

I don't see anybody else
And I don't need anybody else
And I don't see anybody else

Oh, use me.
Track Name: Cresent-Shaped Depression
The mountains surrounding
Mark the boundaries you're not meant to leave
I'll stay "far away"
But to keep my place
I want to write our names on a culm bank's face.

Our hands only shake when we cross state lines.
I've made hundreds of mistakes
And peace with dying in my sleep
But that's what's right for me
While the kids back home will leap
To the riverbeds below Market Street.

The mountains surrounding
Haunt the boundaries only mentally
Never set free
You know where I'll be
There's a time a place
When and where they'll bury me.

Our hands only shake when we cross state lines.
I've made hundreds of mistakes
And peace with dying in my sleep
But that's what's right for me
While the kids back home will leap
To the riverbeds below Market Street.
Track Name: Safe In Your Skin
When you're feeling safe in your skin
Maybe we'll meet again
When you're feeling down in Kingston
Maybe we'll meet again
Track Name: Where Am I?
Another floor
A different ceiling than the night before
Where am I while you're back home
Life goes on and on and on and on

This strange routine sometimes weighs down on me
But I wouldn't trade it
Not for anything
Maybe there's nothing
Only this moment

As cars pass by
Live fast or slow or stay alive
Where am I while you're back home
Time goes on and on and on and on

This strange routine sometimes weighs down on me
But I wouldn't trade it
Not for anything
Maybe there's nothing
Only this moment
Track Name: Your Screen Door
I grabbed my things and rode to your place.
I knew you'd be there
Four twenty three
On your parch swing talking with me.
And I'm thinking, "What am I doing?"
This is killing me.
I'm dying quietly.
Four twenty three.

I heard your name and thought I'd stop by,
Cut open your screen door,
And sneak in slow.
Just to say hello to you
And see how you've been doing without me.
Call you and see how you've been doing without me.
Track Name: 27
My father said, don't be so scared
Driving home all alone
You're in a hospital bed
I close my eyes
Ignore the sun
Try to wake up from the dream
It's not working this time

I said your name 27 times
Would that bring you back to life
I said your name 27 times
Would that bring you back to life

Do you remember your lucky number
Your superstition has me buried six feet under
Track Name: Stab
Memorial Day came and went again
And I feel the same
How much you've changed
And I've heard all about
Where you've been
How you are now
But I'm still remembering
Last year's parade
Crowded streets with me
With a longing for nothing more

Memorial Day came and went again
And I feel the same
How much you've changed
And I'll let you take a stab at me
Maybe then you'll know what I mean

Last year's streets at summer's end
Left me with a longing for something more
I'll let you take a stab at me
I'll let you take a stab at me
Track Name: GMT (Greenwich Mean Time)
See my breath with every word
Frozen in time looking back at me
Can still be heard

Looking out from a window sill
My conscience surrounding
In everything I see

I see my breath with every word
Frozen in time looking back at me
Can still be heard

All along
I've done this on my own
I heard your voice
And now it's gone
