Track Name: My Yoke Is Easy, My Yoke Is Light
Oh my yoke has easen up, it's light
Oh my Lord just how did it come about
I been blind but I don't mind
I don't know why it took so long no
But I'm not chewing on a bone no

Cause I'm fine with getting just fine
And I'm through with getting true signs
And I'm proud of the broken ceiling

Oh my leash is long enough
All I've tasted outside the sandpit
I just don't want it

And I'm fine with getting just fine
And I'm through with getting true signs
And I'm proud of the broken ceiling

Oh my Lord went on the mountain
But they fell asleep
He then sweat and cried as He was lonely
I love Him
Oh my Lord went on the mountain
But I fell asleep
He then sweat and cried as I'd left Him
But I love Him
Track Name: 4 Years
Matty, when the falls they help you stay focused, boy
Just call it a wake up call
When you feel apalled by what you've done and seen
Then ask for a little love
A little love from above
Can you ask for a little more?

And I know
I plead in dark

When your rights become the wrongs, Jon
Go sit and write a song about vice
Oh how you spent your night by the ocean!
Again you ask for a little love
A little love from above
Can you ask for a little more?

And I know
I plead in dark

And sometimes it's How long you'd sing
And sometimes you'd count them like sheep
There's one, there's two
There's three, there's four

And I know
I plead in dark
Track Name: Growing Up/Goals
Band-Aids
For every stretch of a bone
Old days
Golden scenes overblown

What if every moment
We're drifting away as we grow
And what from?
We need love and work
After 21

Goals
Tangible solid posts
Love lives
The only strongholds (I avoid certain lonesome tunes)
(And I never know if it's too soon)

And I'm great with goals
I'm great with goals
I'm great with goals
I know

I'm great with goals
I'm great with goals
I'm great with goals
Not you
Not you
Track Name: Layers
You said you look forward to the time when you're old
You know that I'm too but what will we do with those layers and eras?

And how do I feel some fifty years later
I wish you would never moved away
I wish they would never build houses I don't remember

And if there's a way I could avoid that horrible pain
When bus ticket prices won't ever remain the same
Track Name: I Want to Be Wide-Eyed
I can never know the true face of every low
Movement of the soul and what's make-believe
But these widened eyes they lead me
Where I should claim my legal rights

And I know it's not a place you could say: 'It's here, it's there'
But what's it then, is it something inside myself?
A feeling, a train of thought?
Oh it's something among us but I'll never fully know!
Emotion
Now the only thing that matters to me is emotion

I don't care it's not how it's supposed to be I am alive
So fuck you and fuck me
I was living in a cloud-cuckoo-land
And I made a friend
But he stares into the abyss

And I want to be wide-eyed
I want to be wide-eyed
I want to be wide-eyed

I want to lighten up before you did, Thom
But you were so my hero
Track Name: I Watched the Film 'The Count of Monte Cristo'
I watched the film 'The Count of Monte Cristo'
With my grandparents when I was small
And years later I wanted to repeat that cherished experience
I arranged it all it sort of worked out but of course
It was't perfect

When Richard Chamberlain howled deeply in that insane dungeon
And when he stood at the small barred window to catch the sun
That was the moment my grampa
Couldn't watch no more
But even had he stayed I wouldn't get what I wanted

My Dad has a good heart I know he loves my mom they never parted
Though he's never read anything (He worked as a policeman one day he blew off his pinkie, it didn't hurt he says)
But now the family's provided for
Dad has started a low voltage thing he took some loans
And though at first he had great worries now we're quite well-off

We have three cars! I got my mom's car
Last week I had to change my address to get a parking place in Prague
And I know my Dad loves me
Even though we've no common ground
I know he's doing what he can
It's good what we've got
Track Name: The Body
So the time has come
I was woven into something

But am I gonna go and say no
to all what's not ineffably right?

Give me time
Give me place
I'm ready
