Track Name: We're Friends Now
Like most things, it speaks quietly
Makes itself shown so subtly
But when seen the right way
It can be heard from miles away

All these open books in front of me
These pages lined with vivid scenes
So many future memories
Spelled out in my mind like stories

I don't even know
Where my head goes
When I'm sitting all alone
Even far away I feel at home

I don't even feel
that much at all
But when you're feeling lost
Then only thing to do is learn to hang on

I can't hold this back
This gratitude
My thoughts go out to you
This afternoon

And it's too much
To say out loud
It's hard to make a sound
Words just can't come out

I hope it's understood
With clarity
I mean just what I mean
I seen the unseen

Now we are friends
Track Name: A Beginning
I used to wander off
To get away from everything
And If I ever stopped
Oh how the bells would ring
But I've got my home
And I've got my medicine
And when left alone
I can love anything

Open up the window now
Feel the wind come in
It's not really a bad thing
It's only a beginning
And everytime I try to scream
It just sounds like applause
And everytime I try to cry
It just comes out all wrong

I will never ever stop being myself now
I will never ever look the other way
I know want to feel something special
And I'll have it one of these days
Track Name: Lemongrass
I can't pretend
I couldn't keep this pace up even if I wanted to
Lemongrass grows in the back, I don't know what I'm looking at
And now I know, an ocean of flowers grows in my head
It's not too far, and we can go there if we close our eyes and

There is nothing in the empty space
Once occupied by little things and trivial misgivings
And everything I used to think about
Before I made my mind clear out
With tricks and things like workarounds
And there is nothing resting in my head
That's making me feel bad again
I thought it would never end
But it did

And now I see
The blanket of comfort covering me
I see the world
Filled to the brim with singing birds
And happily
They drift from spot to spot inside me
It's not too far, and if you want to we can go and leave
Track Name: It's Okay
It's okay if it takes a while
For all the dust to settle down
Cause after all the smoke and fire
The water seeps into the ground

It's okay if it's not quite right
And something seems a little off
Cause after all uncertain nights
The pillow feels extra soft

It's okay if you don't like me
It's okay to feel no energy
It's okay when the sun falls down
And it's okay to hate your town

Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Divinity
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Practically
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Common sense and
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Permanence

Bats in the attic, that I know
They look like birds if you're not up close
And around this time, we close the windows
Leaving no cracks exposed

Rats in the cellar, I conceed
Off the filth and decay, they feed
I won't restrict a basic need
If we can't be fed we can't be free

Ants in kitchen, what can I do
They take less sugar than me or you
The clock tells me it's way too soon
To alter any part of the room

Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Divinity
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Practically
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Common sense and
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Permanence
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
A place to go and
Seeking seeking seeking seeking
Something known
Track Name: For Furniture
Oh my god, it's here, here, here
From the bottom of our hearts
We hold dear, the skies are clear

And all we want is here, here, here
And the shrinking piles of snow, away they go, away they go
All my dreams are real, in this multicolored world
Innocence, in a sense

Run your eyes and see the light
Shining from above
On your face, like a touch, like a touch

It's not something I've thought much about
People are instilled with fear and doubt
And I'm not sure what I can do
For the furniture we've turned ourselves into

Now we're sitting on the curb, and cars are going back and forth
And what we thought was would always be is fading oh so rapidly
Maybe we'll get taken in and have a chance to start again
But every passing moment makes that seem more unlikely

Gone are days in living rooms, having purpose, clearer views
With nothing much on our minds beyond the thoughts of simple lives
I guess I'd say I miss that time, but it doesn't really matter

Sometimes things aren't what they seem, I disregard reality
It always lacks consistency, breaks apart like pottery
And that's the thing with furniture, It does it's job until it hurts
And then it goes away and no one asks what happens first
Track Name: Man, That Was Weird
Man that was weird, the time that has gone by
Since the last time i saw you standing there alive
With your eyes wide open, staring out at me TV

Can I remember the way that I felt
Way back before I was different than myself
And I wore funny t-shirts and the baseball caps
With the logo on the front and the brim turned back

One minute goes by, and no one seems to care
And a whole hour passes like smoke in the air
And the next thing I know your getting on the train
And I'm waving goodbye and I'm in a lot of pain

Another minute passes and I'm walking away
And a whole hour passes I keep the tears at bay
And the next thing I know I feeling like I did
But something inside me is nagging from within

Feeling feeling leaving
Oh, my friend
I won't forget the faces
My ears will ring

A year goes by and I hardly think at all
About the opportunities and the times that I stalled
All the times, didn't say what i wanted to
At the right time to express myself to you

All of the times I thought I had seen
Everything possible right in front of me
Every time I wanted to die
Over something minimal, some imagined slight

One minute goes by, I sink into myself
And a whole hour passes, I'm having better health
And the next thing I know I'm grinning ear to ear
And I'm ready to go on another couple years

Another minute passes I'm standing all alone
And a whole hour passes underneath the dome
And the next thing I know I feeling in the now
And I look to sun and I climb to the clouds
Track Name: We're Friends Now (Reprise)
Sometimes I feel far away
And you help with that

Sometimes I don't want to stay
And you help with that

Sometimes it just ain't the same
And you help with that

Sometimes I don't say
That you help with that

I'm glad we are friends
Track Name: All Of The Time
Every day brings new
Troubles for you
The honor isn't mine
Speak of the devil
He is here all of the time

Maybe it is true
Putting on your shoes
Your foot won't fit inside
Inconsistencies plague your life
All of the time

But don't forget, though you're a mess
Look, and you'll find
Reasons to believe we love you
All of the time

Looking up from a book and seeing the
Empty room's design
The sky outside is painted gray
All of the time

Tip of the pencil breaks
Touching the empty page
Making a crooked line
Simple tasks seem difficult
All of the time

But don't forget, though you're a mess
Look, and you'll find
Reasons to believe we love you
All of the time
