Track Name: The Inheritance of Loss
take me apart
then piece me back together
just the way that I was meant to be
I tried so hard
to impress you in the scenery
could not have known what it all meant to me

we don't sleep we dream
of the things that we are not
and those things that stay aloof
just the way that I'm right next to you

from the gardens of bangalore
you're always on the run
to the starless skies of new york
you're always on the run
stuck in a basement but on your way
you're always on the run
well I hope you'll make it home one day

we don't sleep we dream
of the things that we are not
and those things that stay aloof
just the way that I'm right next to you
Track Name: That Way You Do
crashing out the dangerzone
I call your phone but every number's wrong
tracked your traces until my eyes played blind
now trains of thoughts they're leaving my mind on time
I swallowed all guess now it's swallowing me
the days they're pushing one another
hey let's not interfere


i want to be real
so i can see things that way you do
No need to be free
just let me believe
in what you do
that way you do


wonder if this could hold a photograph
the colours seem so frail, I think they would rub off
your head's a mess but that will be alright
I think I like you, let's hope it lasts a while
you know I got it coming bad one day
but until that day I think that you should stay
we'd rent a room just something temporary
there'd be no cars or dogs or kids but it would be a home


i want to be real
so i can see things that way you do
No need to be free
just let me believe
in what you do
that way you do


that way you do
that way you do
that way you're doomed
that way you do
that way you do
that way you're doomed

because you can't see now
so you won't believe in me no
the things you can't see now
make you not believe in me no

i want to be real
so i can see things that way you do
No need to be free
just let me believe
in what you do
that way you do
Track Name: That's How I'll Know
I
never knew how time went by
so I never stopped a thing
no I never stopped to think
you
never knew how you should cry
to get your way
go get your way


when the stars give up the sky
when the moon it leaves the night
to the dark
that's how I'll know
when the birds fall from the trees
to sing their last song to me
that's how I'll know


We
really could have been some one
but we never did a thing
until the things they got us done
they
say the future's a stubborns' child
so bemused at pushing welter
and now my restless nights are rife


when the stars give up the sky
when the moon it leaves the night
to the dark
that's how I'll know
when the birds fall from the trees
to sing their last song to me
that's how I'll know


look at all these silly games we play
always looking for an obstacle
I'm always looking for an obstacle



now the stars gave up the sky
and the moon it left the night
to the dark
that's how I know
all the birds fell from the trees
and sang their last song to me
that's how I know
Track Name: Times/Tides
pierce through the night
kindle the flames in this house of ice
build it all up
let it break down
guess you have to get lost
before you'll be found

they say those are the times
but here you are stuck in love with what you despise
move it all out
let it back in
guess you have to be hurt
before you can heal


and now the tide's coming
and I'm not sure we will
ever feel the same


the patches of paint, they defy you
the stairs you once played on, now they hardly hold your weight
those were the times
mourn with a smile
guess what you have lost now
you won't find
again


seems nothing remained of that shiver, that held you
that broken door frame, that kept you up all night
we give what we have
if it's not enough
I'll try to mourn us with a smile


and now the tide's coming
and I'm not sure things will
ever be the same


one day far I'll build another home for us
