Track Name: No Arrow
*****
LYRICS:

My thoughts like floating balloons
I try to hold - try to keep controlled
But they float to the moon.

Here I am on bended knees
Like fish in a barrel - with your bow and arrow
I'm begging you please.

And I wish I could...

Woah! I'm light as a feather
But if the bright skies are fading
I would never survive the weather.

I run away
Would I run away
Would I?

I can't escape
But I dream about it
Sometimes.

And when they take to the sky
In your eye do you see them
As an opportunity or a target?

Track Name: Anxious Artists
*****
LYRICS:

With the bean in my blood - I ignore my body
In a room full of anxious artists
Let me shiver - let me shake and marinate in my paranoia
Soaked through in a room with no view
Feel the fear - free the form - tendons torn.

We are an army of unbelievers
And I wish I was stronger than you
Trying to keep us all together.

Hard words in soft tones
Enough to shake me to the bones
But then again I am ignoring yet conforming
To these ideals of yours
In my subconscious - unconsciously.

We are an army of unbelievers
And I wish I was stronger than you
Trying to keep us all together.
*****
Track Name: Bottleneck
*****
LYRICS:

You lift your foot and swing it in front of the other
And as you walk your shadow tries to keep up
Your steady footing is threatened by the weather
You are walking away from me.

Hold your sides as the breeze grabs through the layers
Never forgetting the place that you chose to forget.

And I never even tried to stop you.

A bottleneck of words stuck in my throat
Stuck in my throat is the neck of a bottle
I'm drinking it dry.

And I never even tried to stop you.
*****
Track Name: Captain & Navigator
*****
LYRICS:

If all the tears you cried on this day
Would pool together and form a waterway.
I would rip the pews of nails and glue
And build you a means of escape.
We'd run from everyone
Misplace the maps - follow the sun.
It's you and me and as we flee
These actions can't be undone.

But you can't escape
If you can't believe it's true.
And I'm afraid it's true.
This is forever.

Downstream the tributary
The river wild with possibility.
Not much to show but watch us grow
To the best of our ability.
I carved her name into the wood
Splintered fingers worn for greater good.
Now you stand talker than where you stood.

But you can't escape
If you can't believe it's true.
And I'm afraid it's true.
This is forever.

I made the boat and you made the river...
Captain and Navigator.
