Stoplight 03:38
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

Party Host 04:11

Mystery Tide 04:39
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...

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.

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
