Track Name: Stoplight
i just had a thought come into my mind
it occured to me that i dont wanna go outside
not today, it just dont feel right
im pushing all the buttons on my own stop light

citys on speed and im running red lights
like if i could blow through this we would all be all right
and my spirit says still but my body says fight
and i am pushing all the buttons on my stop light

and god says
baby please slow down your heartbeat is the only sound
youve got to move to find your higher ground
cause you cant ahead of your self
because you cant get ahead of your self
so if you cant get ahead
stop light

theres light up ahead and i can see
its too far to jump across the static sea
so another night, we can fill this space
not today, cause it getting late

so for now it remains outta sight
and i am pushing all the buttons on my stoplight

and god says
baby please slow down your heartbeat is the only sound
youve got to move to find your higher ground
cause you cant ahead of your self
because you cant get ahead of your self
so if you cant get ahead
stop light

cause you cant ahead of your self
because you cant get ahead of your self
so if you cant get ahead
stop light
Track Name: Party Host
when i invited you to be my guest
when i cut that hole in the middle of the fence
what lied ahead was anybodys guess
we've just only left, so clear your head
until we stop for rest
its right up ahead
it don't seem like i should care
i dont know you and i wont know anybody there
but i can bet a dime youll be talking all the time
you know we'll be just fine we're lookin for the signs

there were trampolines
and kids in jeans
and the backyard puppets always make the show
there were picnic tables and storied fables
and a robot was our party host

i saw a sparrow where the chains were linked
the space is narrow and it made me think
when i saw something it was something right
tiny action in a flash of light

there were trampolines
and kids in jeans
and the backyard puppets always make the show
there were picnic tables and storied fables
and a robot was our party host


Why, don't you why, don't you why
Come along
And try, won't you try, won't you try
and hear me out

there were trampolines
and kids in jeans
and the backyard puppets always make the show
there were picnic tables and storied fables
and a robot was our party host
Track Name: Mystery Tide
is this the place we thought we'd start it?
i wonder if the dear departed
can see
us now?

there's lightning in the greenest garden
so let it rain and strike a bargain
and be
here now

cause i've been filling you up
while you were emptying back out
and it's a thriller this cup so if you drink it,
wear the crown and
raise your glass with pride
and let the mystery tide
turn

it resonates with what we've borrowed
cause our today was their tomorrow
so settle down, and set the pace
it's easy now - a state of grace....

cause that's what filling you up
while you are emptying back out
and it's a thriller this cup so if you drink it,
wear the crown, and
raise your glass with pride
and let the mystery tide
turn

are you on my side?
of the mystery tide
cause if i am right
it will turn
and turn and turn and turn and turn...

and that's what filling you up
while you are emptying back out
and it's a thriller this cup so if you drink it,
wear the crown, and
raise your glass with pride
and let the tide turn and turn and turn and turn and...
Track Name: Morning Biscuit
Lets have a morning biscuit
mix a little something with it
and when the man brings the paper
then we will have something to read.

You wait to see if i'm able
as i set your place at the table
i hope all that you've learned
is enough for you to get your degree

The signs will lead us to different views
and we'll butt heads before we're through
oh no
oh no

oh no , no, no, no
oh no

then you said when you moved away
you'd be in touch in a couple of days
but the man who brings the mail
ain't got no letter for me

I was drunk on wine at the time
i had clearly lost my mind

I don't mean for you to be alarmed
I inked your number on my arm

Well i think it might be awhile
till i see your pretty little smile
and i already miss you
in the time that you took to agree

All of the sudden I need some sleep
Sooner than later you'll to leave
and the man who brings the paper
will take any future message for me.
Track Name: Me Too, Flower Girl
Me too, Flower Girl
bows in your hair
I used to dress just like you
but nobody cared

And I used to think that luck in love
was always on my side
But I didn't buy a ticket to get
taken on this ride

At first i didn't worry
as the people took their cues
that flowers from a funeral
were lining all the pews

And I did all i could
and i thought that i would
have a wedding day
but it's not understood
when the things you don't say
have gotten in the way

Me too, Flower Girl
sleep away your cares
she'll leave you a pillow
and a blanket by the stairs

so you can lie to your mother
as i start to wonder
why i'm even there
because there is another
who you call your lover
if i'm inclined to care

CHORUS
It feels like i've been walking uphill
non-stop for ten years straight
as I'm falling behind
you're picking up the pace

just like you didn't care
just like i wasn't there

It feels like i've been walking uphill
non-stop for ten years straight
as I'm falling behind
you're picking up the pace

Me too, Flower girl
asleep in the pew
it's finally time
to find something new
