Track Name: Back to the Water
Seems like only yesterday
but yesterday seems so long ago
So where does the time go?
and where did my mind go? (x2)

I didn't think we could
but we lost each other in this world
it's crazy, but I'm gonna get you back

Summer come again please
I need you
You can make it alright
Sun come again please
I need you in my life

Take me back to the water (x2)
Let it hold me, let it embrace me
Yeah, let it become me

Hold me, love me, become me, embrace me
Hold me, love me, love me (yeah)
Track Name: Currents
Most of us are always treading water
You call it home but it's the place you hate the most
Live for the days that you get carried to shore
But soon enough the waves will suck you dry to your core

(Chorus )
You ride the current so smoothly
You and I do it every day, until it's easy

Another day, another sleepless night
Stuck to your bed until you force your eyes to the light
In a minute you forget the night's dreams
Take a breath and wish you could fall back asleep

(Chorus)

It seems easy
It seems good
but I know that you know, there's so much more
It seems easy
It seems good
But I hope that you know, there's so much more
Track Name: Dunes
I swam to the middle of a lake
I was alone, I was cold
but it was no mistake
I contemplated if I could make it back to shore
a thousand times
I blinked my eyes and I was there
then it started raining

Dunes make me feel like I'm running out of time
While I was crawling on my hands
I wondered why, haven't I been doing this all of my life?
You're only getting harder to climb
Oh dunes, you make me feel so alive
You're always on my mind

How about you come keep me company
I'm up here
I never said that i was lonely
but I could use some company up here
Track Name: Portals
I've seen you with your guns and knives
you think you're dangerous
Pretend that you don't see what's right there
how mysterious
You're looking nervously around
Everybody's in disguise
Still you keep your eyes to the ground

Take a look around
It's the same old town
I think I'll find a way to get lost

Into the jungle I go
Spears being thrown everywhere
Find the tallest tree to climb
Only seen by the birds as they fly
Headfirst in quicksand I go
No fear of being swallowed whole
Spit me out into a cove
Grow my food, build a home on my own

Into the jungle I go
Spears being thrown everywhere
Find the tallest tree to climb
Sit and stare at the sky
And as I'm breathing
I try to remember what I'm feeling
Cause what I'm feeling is everything that I love
Track Name: Child of the Sun
Say you know me, I know you do
Show me how I used to move
Trace the paths under my hands
with my back against the tree I watch you, free

(chorus)
so come around these streets again
in my veins and in my head
on my feet I feel so weak
but if you show me that you know me then
I will run, yeah I will run
back to where I'm from
child of the sun

Counting sheep, it's been so long
Dreamt I played hide and seek but I got lost
I fell asleep at the foot of a tree
You woke me up, and then I woke up

(chorus)

Let's run away, make me come alive
Track Name: Disappear & Reappear
every day waking up
never get enough rest
wish i could disappear under my blanket
sick of hearing everybody complain
and i'm sick of myself, cause i'm the same
and i'm sick of people thinking it'll all work out one day
sick of hearing that everything will be okay
so sick of hearing that
everything will be okay
i'm sick of hearing that
it'll all work out one day

cause it won't
unless you make it
no it won't
until it's yours for the taking

you've got the freedom to be what you want
so you're sitting at home on your couch
and you're eating shit while you're watching tv
and soaking up pure stupidity
if that's what you're gonna do, then that is what you're going to do x2
drink every night away, drink so much you don't remember a thing
sleeping the day away, sleep so much you forget about your dreams

you forget about your dreams
you don't remember anything
you make yourself the way that you are

sick of people thinking it'll all work out one day
sick of hearing that everything will be okay
so sick of hearing that
everything will be okay
i'm sick of hearing that
it'll all work out one day

cause it won't
unless you make it
no it won't
until it's yours for the taking
Track Name: Summer (Living a Dream)
in the hot heat
in the hot summer heat
livin' a dream
with the forest and the beach
livin' the dream

you say hi, i say hey
i know that we are both okay
nothing's complicated today
nothing's hard today
we are both okay
we're better than okay
and when you put me to bed
sleeping next to your head
cradled into your chest
i can't say it's not the best

why can't it always be like this?
why's it gotta change on me?
i just want the sun and you

no i cant think of a way
a way thats better than today
that i'd wanna spend my day
i know that there is no such thing
there's no such thing
better than today
when we're running around
cant keep our feet on the ground
cant keep my head from being in the clouds
and i'm sandier than ever
Track Name: Habitats
I close my eyes, shut out all of the light tonight
It's time to dream, about you and me
We have come so far

And like a tree to a bird, I am your home
Like a deer in the woods, there's no place like your own
Habitat, your habitat

I wish the sky, would always shine
Like it does when we are aligned
Oh it's been a road, but I know you are my home
and I can always call you my habitat

Your habitat, you hang around me
I've got what you need and it's a mutual thing
Your habitat, my habitat
Your habitat is my habitat
Track Name: Melancholia
As long as you are living comfortably
You don't care about anything
How about the world that exists outside of your own?
The fucked up one you choose to ignore

So what are you gonna do now?
You've already sunk Hope and watched her drown
Still you're sitting high with your head on the ground
rolling around, rolling freely around

All these people, they don't know
That's the way it goes
As long as you are living comfortably
Track Name: Empty Houses
come here baby
hold me close keep me near
come here baby
hold me close keep me near

you know what i know
and you feel what i feel
we cant keep acting old if we're gonna survive out here
we've got so far to go

out here the winter's so cold
and there's no trails to follow in the snow
we made our own, we'll make our own
when we find our home we'll find our gold

so come here baby
hold me close keep me near
