I drank from the salt water well I lost my way and became A briefcase of ballads hanging loosely on the shoulder of a style Where I wade in the soft depths Of the murky red ink Washing my bones on the shore I drank from the salt water well It was ten years away from a lifetime ago And i saw a lightbulb floating down A river of thought Casting shadows on my heart And I wade in the soft depths Of the murky red ink Washing my bones on the shore

The Day You Fled From me l'd drink the sea away To lie with you in your grave I made this resolution on your birthday With my oar in the shallows Shipwrecked and splintered My head In the gallows Singing a deaf song With words beautiful As a pink sky at night Sailers delight On the day You fled from me It was as fresh as spring But we were barren as the fall The seasons distancing me from your memories But the devil in my minds eye Is burning bright for you He’s for your beauty He can’t have you anymore l'd drink the sea away To lie with you in your grave I made this resolution on your birthday

I Told You So The wires barbed with thorns behind my glazed eyes Guard the chorus of trumpets in my head I wrap myself around the highway arteries And merge together the broken face A late night misplaced phone call from the scene of flashing lights but you wont say I told you so If I lost my fear When I needed it Would you nurse the ice On my black eye Cause I took the high road with the pride of lions Eating me alive But you wont say I told you so

Make Them Alright The fix is in the cities veins Changing the street names I guess i always knew that i’d forget about you I don’t want to make things better I just want to make them alright Roll your blind eyes I accept that you cant see That i never meant to do this do you It happened to me I don’t want to make things better I just want to make them alright The way it seems i think i must be trying to lose you There’s guards at the bridges between us Acting under orders from above I don’t want to make things better I just want to make them alright

they say its good to be different cause when things change they’ll come your way and now i think i know what they meant cause things they changed from yesterday the day you came my way back in the days i was by myself i didn’t know there was someone else who could understand the way i felt but things they changed from those days the day you came my way and now that ive got you please say you wont go i know things will change but loves wake holds us in tow but if you’re ever gonna leave me please tell me so tell me so no one knows what the future holds but i hold you close as we grow old we’ll stay together cause love is bold and things may changed from yesterday but today you’ll came my way and now that ive got you please say you wont go i know things will change but loves wake it holds us in tow but if you’re ever gonna leave me please tell me so tell me so
