Track Name: Hiatus
Never thought I'd feel this way again
Sailed too far from home
Caught a wind that took me back again
Back to where you once roamed

Hiatus did the best for me
Helped me find myself
Hiatus did the rest for me
Put my past on the shelf

Chaos to order, I crossed a border
Now I'm finally home
Worth every damn penny spent
Return was heaven ‘cent’

Hiatus did the best for me
Helped me find myself
Hiatus did the rest for me
Put my past on the shelf

Order to chaos, I ventured across
Uncharted land
Learned my story, over sacred ground
Now I know where I'll be found

Hiatus did the best for me
Helped me find myself
Hiatus did the rest for me
Put my past on the shelf

Hiatus did the best for me
Helped me find myself
Hiatus did the rest for me
Put my past on the shelf
Track Name: Disconnected
Still motion on the seashore
Don't leave, draw the blinds
Kill the moment that you pleaded for
A dream store of minds

It ain't real until it's posted
Pics or GTFO
Whatever happened to the moments
Unauthored and unbound

We're disconnected
We're closer yet further away

You'd rather wait for an update
Than change your state yourself
Go on now you've got things to check
A life of heck, submit

Dream weavers conspiring
To sell your life's footprint
We used to be so very weary
Now we give it all for free

We're disconnected
A touch has gone astray
Track Name: Going Slow
Going slow
Riding low
Keeping under your motion
In mind's ocean
Stage some more
Dine for four
You said your word was golden
Should have known then

Walking out
Turning in
Giving up
You said to roam less
Let's get undressed
Texting me
Message me
You want me to come over
Undercover

Taxi out
No way back
For my heart was broken
Once you opened
Mend my heart
Patch it up
Need to see some progress
Under duress

Going slow
Going home
Need to retrace my cold steps
To my life's mess
Track Name: Heart's Roulette
Talk me down oh so softly
Bridge the gap that was awfully
Across my heart
Oh, where to start?
It fell apart at the seams

Dreams can pull us together
Yesterday's no better
So look ahead
What was said?
You left my bed for the sea

Take the chance that you gave me
Convince me it will save me
From rules I've set
A heart’s roulette
I don't expect to win
Track Name: Climbing
Here I go again
So soon since the last time
Bring me over that wine
It's my time to shine

So we move away
Smile once again
Move away
Smile once again

Climbing the walls again
You're my eyes and ears
Smile away my vanity
Modesty to insanity

And we move away
Smile once again
Move away
Smile once again

Resolution come find me
I'll be around the bend
Talk me around once you're inside
Maybe then I'll decide

To move away
Smile once again
Move away
Smile once again
Track Name: Molly
Molly holds your gaze (in strange ways)
Puts you in a haze
Takes you on a trip (moves you from the hip)
Makes your aching heart skip

Oh Molly, get a grip
Oh Molly, take me with

Molly's walked out your door (get up off the floor)
Got no time for you no more
Don't come crying to me (since you tried to flee)
When Molly leaves your scene

Oh Molly, get a grip
Oh Molly, take me with

Falling out, falling out
Out of love with you
She caught an out, caught an out
When you were being you

Oh Molly, get a grip
Oh Molly, take me with
Oh Molly, all night long
Oh Molly, I’ll be strong
Track Name: Father
Hey, don't want you to go
Hold my hand some more
Never thought this day would ever come
Heart don't beat a drum

No more, no more
No more, no more

Close, but still so far away
A life that did not sway too much
Along a sky of blue
A love that made it through

To shore, to shore
To shore, to shore
Track Name: Moot Point
Mask your sorrow
Ask to borrow
One more night of his time
To ask “What's the story?”
Is but a moot point
Let's just leave this damn joint

Walking away
Through the sands of time
Hopefully reaching
A land so fine
To ask “When do we get there?”
Is but a moot point
Guess this love's just disjoint

Throw me a cue
Keep me away from you
Maybe next time I'll resign
To ask “Who's the loser?”
Is but a moot point
You never did want to disappoint
Track Name: Point Reyes
Thousand miles down the coast
To the place I love the most
Orcas to Inverness
Sea, sights, sounds, and the rest..

Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Sets my heart ablaze
Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Where my body stays

Anacortes had a blast
Walking through Deception Pass
Heeded a call from the south
Needed to know what it's all about

Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Sets my heart ablaze
Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Where my body stays

First saw you through a lens
Nothing more my heart intends
Shining through the flowing fog
Three hundred steps what a slog

Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Sets my heart ablaze
Point Reyes, Point Reyes, Point Reyes
Where my body stays
Track Name: Chance
Going nowhere until you decide to say
That you're only static waiting to decay
Brave a new world, feelings are fabric anew
Drive the coast road, nothing to stop your new tune

Keen eyes
Focus on how you
Feel wise
Bogus advice stems from
Greed tries
Don't let it swallow you whole
Don't let it swallow you whole

Take a chance that you never thought you would take
One more glance back to a life others’ mistake
Count your blessings, see the bullet that you dodged
Pull the dressing off the wound now that it's gone

Keen eyes
Focus on how you
Feel wise
Bogus advice stems from
Greed tries
Don't let it swallow you whole
Don't let it swallow you whole

Keen eyes
Focus on how you
Feel wise
Bogus advice stems from
Greed tries
Don't let it swallow you whole
Don't let it swallow you whole
