Track Name: Knees Are Clean
I see red through the trees, don’t know yet what it means to me
Day's end has come again, I’m no closer to anything
Can you feel time chasing down the days?
Tearing down the leaves, tearing up your face?
All these things that just won’t wait
Let the rain wash them all away

A whiskey for your thoughts
Knees are clean but dirty is my soul

What can you say when there is nothing left to say?
I stood on the street with this smile on my face
Sweep it under the rug, throw it out the door
Turn a blind eye, turn your back on it all
Swallow it down dust and all
Hide years of lost in people and their talk

Wash them away
A whiskey for your thoughts
Chasing down the days
Knees are clean but dirty is my soul
Track Name: Bumps
Sink or swim
Or just float on in
Bruise your lips
On bumps and slips
If you could see my brain
You'd never look me in the face again

Strange this face
This shell I've been placed
It's wearing thin
From bumps and slips
If you could see my brain
You'd never look me in the face again

Oh how the world blurs
Oh how it stumbles and slurs
I don't care what you say
I won't keep this memory

Bones don't heal so fast after bumps and slips
Track Name: And I Wait
Snow covers everything, white the streets
And it's buried the whole world on me
And you are so far away
And that may never change
Even when the sun returns to take it's turn
And turns the snow to rain

But I wait patiently
I wait for hope to turn to real
And I wait so patiently
I wait for you to come to me

Days darken quick, nights stretch and extend
An empty bed and empty heart mean empty everything
And you are so far away
And that may never change
Even when the sun returns to take it's turn
And lights the streets again

But I wait patiently
I wait for hope to turn to real
And I wait so patiently
I wait for you to come to me

The earth makes oceans and seas
And miles and miles and miles
And we make borders and rules
And hours and hours and hours

But I wait patiently
I wait for hope to turn to real
And I wait so patiently
I wait for you to come to me
Track Name: Waste Away
Feel the cold seep from the walls
It settles down upon your soul
A daze of days and saving face
Tethered in a cheerless place

You'll never have this time again
So waste away with me my friends
Cos I know and I know and I know and I know
That we're all out of it anyway

Feel the world around you turn
It's breathing in and out and on and on
Slowing down, sober now
Settle in for the long haul

You'll never have this time again
So waste away with me my friends
Cos I know and I know and I know and I know
That we're all out of it anyway

The aching of bones and the smell of decay
Wrap up warm or you'll never wake
What's done is done and we're done with the day
Let's hope when we wake it won't be in this place
