It's the hook on the line, got me quiet by design, got me wondering: which way the wind blows? It's the catch in the rye, got me scratching my eye, got me wondering: how to kill this fever? And it's a no good claim I stake, it's a fools run: go until it breaks It's the heat of the day, got me weak in every way, got me wondering: how to amend our trespass? It's the promise of the night, I'll indulge just to alight in the moonshine: I'll find a silver line Cause it's a no good claim I stake, it's a fools run: go until it breaks Crawling back in the dirt, close enough just ain't enough to kill our fever or fill this emptiness it's the questioning mind got me begging for a sign got me wondering where the hell the time goes And it's a no good claim I stake, it's a fools run: go until it breaks it's a no good case I plead, it's a fools run: go until it bleeds Spinning out in broad daylight, it will come as no surprise but I'm still wondering: how it's all so temporized? Looking back and looking up, the idea that we could stop leaves me laughing til I'm doubled over Cause it's a no good claim we stake, it's a fools run: go until it breaks it's a no good case we plead, it's a fools run: go until it bleeds Falling back to earth

Volvelle 03:51
It's a spell, it's a loop, by the troops of my marching thoughts Views are blocked, notion stuck in the muck behind my marching thoughts Heels are high in the air for the troops of my marching thoughts And by dawn I am a pawn, I'll follow right behind In circle upon circle upon circle upon circle It's a trick of the bell in the hope that all be well Vacant eyes can't disguise the knowing that I feel so well This charade takes a hold in the wake of my marching thoughts I am apart of the play, on display I could never break away I want someone to kick me to the ground I am bound to the sound, hear the call of my marching thoughts My heels are high in the air, don't see how I could ever step aside To derail from this curve to no vail : here's my marching thoughts It's a pyre of my own rules, even though I hardly ever knew the game In circle upon circle upon circle upon circle I want someone to kick me to the ground

The Dam 03:53
Part of me can't wait to see this levy break, can't have this lake all to myself And I wander aimlessly in the morning, it brightens by the minute I would keep you in my own private jail, then we'll never have to see the shoreline flooded like this Part of you will wash away, when gravity exclaims you: can't have this lake all to yourself Then we wander aimlessly in the morning, it brightens by the minute I could keep you in my own private jail, then we'll never have to see the shoreline flooded like this All included, still colluding, merchandizing my admission All excluded, still protruding, mesmerizing bodies floating Some of us will rise above these murky waters, they can't have this lake all to themselves Then we wander aimlessly in the morning, it brightens by the minute I could keep you in my own private jail, then we'll never have to see the shoreline flooded like this All included, still colluding, merchandizing my admission All excluded, still protruding, mesmerizing bodies floating

Passing in the morning with the fog still on the ground Slowly in the evening while the particles hang round Transfer every corner with the hope that we'll collide Harboring a wish for our worlds to coincide

Round the town we roam there is nothing to withhold Just a flicker bright and true until the morning Up and down the halls and the gathering of calls We've breached the line of promising control Follow me home I have nothing truth be told But there is a fire roaring to keep us warm If you think that I'm alright running circles through the night then I will gladly come and take and pour that poison out Cause all there is, is this desire to make you see how I feel when I walk away from you It's a bright, bright light when you wake and nothing's right You know you've lost the kind of love that kept you sane It's a false, false pride to say your hand has none to hide It's giving in so close to giving up It's a wide wide web that we've cast upon ourselves We're narrowing the points that we can hold If you think that I'm alright running circles through the night then I will gladly come and take and pour that poison out Now all there is, is this desire to make you see how I feel when I walk away from you

Mercy 04:01
What to do in the fall when the papered leaves crawl And the thought of our death seems so dreamy What to do with our time turning round and upside down, That's the space in-between that we've inherited Have no mercy when it calls you, leave this place without regret What to do with the heart the it beats you apart And the calm that we've known has but vanished What to do with the fear that we're grasping in thin air, To hold a grief that fades so very easily Have no mercy when it calls you, leave this place without regret What to do int the spring, when the trees shoot again And the taste of their hope is effervescent What to do with our demand that time be still, For us to hold and grasp a moment it will not linger
