Track Name: Ghosts and Straw Fields
Somewhere my heart is aching
Sitting alone singing Owen songs to itself
And I don't care, no not anymore
Sometimes life's like a hot air balloon going nowhere

A chance to rise above
And look down
At that unforgiving ground
I feel like a ghost when the sun is out
Reaching for a face I just can't touch

My hands are numb from icing my wounds
Blood from the mouth from biting my tongue when I
Go off the deep end
As stable as a newborn child trying to walk
As useful as a broken watch when I try to talk

I'd say the clouds have it easier
But even they feel grey sometimes
An open field of straw in my dreams
Stumbling upon a girl laying alone

But I fear I'll be like this for always
And I fear I'll be alone forever
Track Name: Peter Pan and the Semester Upstate
Careful we've become too attached to our demises
Forget the things that are just listed by their prices
Pack my bags I'm tired of cleaning up after others messes
Go far away, please just get me out of Massachusetts

Cuz we're failing, just failing

Falling between the lines of the things
That would bring us happiness
And I'm tired
Tired enough to say so

What is fair? After all these years I couldn't say
Self involved I find people are blind to their potential
Another phrase another thing I wish you hadn't said
Let's fight old age these vessels are all that hold us back

Cuz we're aging, just aging

Falling between the lines of the things
That would bring us happiness
And I'm tired
Tired enough to say so

And I have faith that age is just a number
And I have faith that one thing leads to another
