Track Name: A Home
I came home last night to find another family in my house/
we felt like strays as they spent their days and saw their own ups and downs/
under a roof that once sheltered mine/
to think we once had it all, the friends, the time,/
the woods we used to explore,/
the quiet creek who now holds out a roar

We were never what we said we were/
But are things ever what they seem?/
We may have rowed our boats/
but that doesnt mean/
that life is but a dream.

I came home today to a house I thought dead.
But it still lives.

We were never what we said we were.

The walls developed lungs and breathed life into this machination/
The pipes transported blood while we were all off on vacation/
The windows saw the sun with eyes that died when we replaced them/
The floorboards spoke in creaks while we were all asleep and/
The spiders underneath would weave a new web every weekend/
We cast our sails, our dreams prevailed and rowed our boats right off the deep end.

Right off the deep end.
Track Name: Away From Home
We threw sand in the dark and created stars/
laid a path out before us to walk to the car/
the light struck your hair as it tangled with mine/
keeping you close as we drove to the/
end of the earth, but first waved goodbye/
to the swing on your front porch and old chairs on mine/
your garden of roses, my siding of vines/
that at first hugged my home but then wandered inside/

said farewell to our goodbyes and brushed them aside/
we were always waiting/
always watching/
always searching for something that might/
change reality/
change our lives/
but when it came we were too busy/
always waiting/
always watching/
always searching for something we’d seen but didn’t recognize.

We rode off in the night and set sights for the west/
As we lucidly dreamt and we consciously slept/
The hours were minutes, the minutes were days/
Time melted away as we drove to the/
end of the earth, as we watched the sun rise/
in the rear view mirror while our lives passed by/
your garden of roses, my siding of vines/
were now worlds away. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

We swam through the ocean and wandered the globe/
we drove through the valleys in rain shine and snow/

Came upon the edge where all life seemed to end/
Where no one had dared to see what came next/
We looked to the east, laid our fears to rest/
And we leapt.
