Track Name: Gas Station Receipts
in my small room
in my warm bed
i lost myself
inside my head
with vivid dreams
of nonsense things

i wrote those dreams
on gas station receipts
but they got lost
under passenger seats
i reached down to find them
kept rolling down the street

i keep watching for tail lights
they keep me alive
white lines and turn signals
in front of my eyes

i keep looking down now
to see more clearly
i'm risking my whole life
on gas station receipts

you like the dust and i love the soil
we both have our fires they burn in turmoil
with embers that meet and start growing cold
they lose all their heat and die when they're old
Track Name: Clipped
my wings are clipped
i cannot fly
if you had some strings
i think i could try

tie them tight
get the knot just right
if you pull too hard
i'll fall apart

will you tell my kid
and tell my wife
don't you bury me
when i die

just take me to
a place real high
and throw me off
and say good
Track Name: Oak Tree
this whole city needs someone like you for survival
you're a bulletproof vest in a firefight
you're an oxygen mask when the plane is diving
you're a phone number to call to hear someone on the line

and i've touched things that i shouldn't touch
and i've loved people that i couldn't love
i've got things working against me
they're boiling deep in my blood
but i'm doing alright now, just trying to be good

if you were an oak tree maybe i could light a fire
just a little of your spark could really help us through the night

this whole city needs someone like you for survival
you're a bulletproof vest in a firefight
you're an oxygen mask when the plane starts diving
you're a phone number to call to hear someone on the line

and i've touched things that i shouldn't touch
and i've loved people that i couldn't love
i've got things working against me
they're boiling deep in my blood
but i'm doing alright now, just trying to be good

if you were an oak tree maybe i could light a fire
just a little of your spark could really help us through the night
Track Name: Nothing
i've got nothing
to be upset about
bright white 20 something
i should just enjoy myself
i don't care about nothing
that's what i tell myself
when i'm going through hell
and gotta get out somehow

because the devils been dragging me around
his shitty town for way too long now

you've got nothing to be upset about
yea you're not perfect, who needs that anyhow
maybe you got something that i can't live without
maybe it's one thing that will calm my heart down
and you're going through hell
and gotta get out somehow

because the devils been dragging you around
his shitty town for way too long now

maybe we could find a little house
that we buy in a little town
put some roots in the ground
see what this livings all about about
just get along now

because the devils been dragging us around
his shitty town for way too long now
Track Name: Stumbling
i keep stumbling over the universe
every night and every day
i keep stumbling over the universe
it keeps getting in my way

i'm flying blind, i think i see the light
can't get these stars out of my eyes
i'm going down, i think i see the clouds
they're coming fast
these words could be, these words could be

i keep stumbling over the universe
every night and every day
i keep stumbling over the universe
it keeps getting in my way

i'm flying blind, i think i see the light
can't get these stars out of my eyes
i'm going down, i think i see the ground
it's coming fast
these words could be, these words could be
my last
Track Name: Afterlife
hey my afterlife make my sky stay blue
hey my afterlife make my dreams come true
hey my afterlife make my stars bright too
and hey my afterlife i'll be good to you

yea i'll take care of you
