Track Name: Soundtrack
All the movies in my head have stopped
And here I am, just waking up
Life's not just a ticking clock
There's so much more I could have thought

All the movies in my head are gone
But there's still a soundtrack going on
I can't escape the sound of love
So what's the use in giving up?
Track Name: Mirror of the Sun
It's hard to live by a river
The water gets clearer, after it's dark
And I couldn't be nearer, so pretty a mirror
I'll throw rocks at my heart
It's odd, the skies getting dimmer
But my face looks bigger while it drifts apart

I'd hide it from the sun
But it's burned in everyone
I'd hide it from the sun
I'm blinding everyone
Track Name: Selfish
I'm a candle, in a dim lit house
I could burn 8 days before I go out
And this blood that can move me
It has heat, still your hand can pass through me
Like the fear that I'll be feeling
Right before I die, I'm so fleeting
Take a note on a dim lit screen
I'm so hard to see without batteries
But in the dark, if you try to see
Just focusing makes things cease to be
Track Name: Sean Connery
My grandfather had diabetes
He died before he got to meet me
My parents say he would have loved me
They say that he died horribly

A wolf came to me in a dream
He had conquered mass and gravity
Passed through a wall and looked at me
I woke up to my destiny

If you name your child for me
Name him after your favorite actor

If I get lost in the crowd could you pick me out?
Track Name: Listening
I can hear you up there now
I wanna glow I don't know how
Everything is better now
That I'm downstairs
You're not aware of my existence, right now

Everything is surface ground
But below the Earth there still is sound
I hope you're feeling better now
That there are walls between us
And songs that greet us, when we're alone
With nowhere else to go

Are you listening up there?
Are you listening to me now?
Cause I just wanna shout

Are you listening up there?
Are you listening to me now?
Then I won't make a sound
Track Name: Wooden People
We're all wooden people walking by
Our experiences carve little nicks into our hides
We hold on to those scars until we die
And carve them into others, whether or not we try

So I am all my friends and they are me
I actually find that thought a little comforting
I think all my friends are pretty sweet
Even though they take their high school insecurities out on every human being
I guess that's just the way we'll always be
We don't let go of feelings very easily

Some people try to carve a bit too deep
The light that hides below the surface can be blinding
I think I'd like to stand up and be seen
And let the light that shines within me give life to everything

But the past has carved a funnel that all my problems fall into
I'm trying my very best not to catch you in the wound

School carved math and language into me
I'm everything my teachers ever wanted me to be
But now that I'm old, I've made my frame my own
Won't someone please just take a knife to me?
Track Name: Peeled
I'll try to be as blunt as I can possibly be
Sometimes all these abstractions just don't feel quite like me
I'm trying to be the best friend I can possibly be
But it feels like you all see right through me

My brain cannot exist without my body
My heart won't be alive without blood to bleed
Sometimes I have to focus on what to be
And everything else becomes blurry

My face is just a mirror of how I feel
So if I'm never looking at it then why can't it be peeled?
I wonder how words can hurt and heal
When no one seems to listen

If I carve the word care on my body
Would people believe I did?
Then instead of asking me
They could read it off my skin

So you know you can see who you wanna see
But I'll keep trying to be the best friend I can possibly be
I cannot put agendas on human beings
Even though sometimes I want to
Track Name: Samantha
It's hard for me
To look Samantha in the eye
When all that I can think of
Is love that never dies

It's hard for me
To let Samantha see me cry
When all that's running down her face
Is love that never dies

It's hard for me
To let Samantha see me high
When all I ever trip about
Is love that never dies

I know that I can't be afraid of everything
But you've gotta be afraid of some things to be human

It's hard for me
To look Samantha in the eye
But I know I have to try
For me
Track Name: I Am Not My Self
Something about the way we die
Makes it hard to be alive
It just makes me wanna shine
But sometimes the light hurts my eyes

Everybody wants a knife
So they can carve the perfect man or wife
You can train yourself to love a lie
Like a bug flying towards the light

I'm a weapon of a friend, shoot to kill 'til I'm rusted
It feels like my lights burning out, so I'm just lying on the couch

Something about the way you smile
Makes me feel warm like a child
I can hear the movement slide
But it only makes me wanna write

I'm not what my parents bought
I'm not as smart as you thought

Became my parents only child
Now I'm just stoned all the time
They need me to be their light
But I've been glowing all my life
And I'm tired

If I am not my self
Then how can I be of help
To anyone else?

It feels like a lot of what a person is, escapes us
But that could just be me, projecting my own fears
Because I let so much escape me
I've already let so much escape me
And I'm sad for the things
I know I can't have back

If I am not my self
Then how can I be helped
By anyone else?
Track Name: The Sound of Love
Don't stop walking away from me
If you don't wanna be seen by me
Everything I've ever been
Will be left far behind

But you can carry a piece of me
Like it was implanted in a dream
Or in your personality
That part of you will always be me

I don't claim to be anything
Except a face on a screen
And the wolf in my dream
I guess I'll just stay here and sleep

Sometimes light just shines
And there's no one around to see
Sometimes light just shines
Because that's how it's meant to be
I know I'll be fine
I don't need to be seen
Sometimes light just shines
It doesn't shine for you and me

Sometimes light just shines
And there's no one around to see
Sometimes light just shines
Because that's how it's meant to be
I know I'll be fine
I don't need to be seen
Sometimes light just shines
It'll shine for eternity

Sometimes light just shines
I'll shine eventually.
