Track Name: Satellite
Call from the satellite phone
I don’t mind the delay
As long as I can hear your voice
A million miles away

Lemme hear your laughter ring
We’ll say whatever you need
Come back down and stay for a while

The world won’t give you what you want
But it could still be fine
We could’ve found a way
If you could’ve found the time

There’s a much wider world than I’ve known
And planets I’ve never dreamed
Just to us, this whole land is new

I can’t help but feel that we’re just passing the time here
Sunrises to sunsets, just to do it again
Waiting to know ourselves better

Oh the world won’t give you what you want
But it could still be fine
We could’ve found a way
If you could’ve found the time
Give us what we want
It could all be fine
We could’ve found a way
If you could’ve found the time
Oooh, ooooh, ooooooooh
Track Name: Light Again
Woke up that morning and in everything
I could see your eyes looking up
I can't explain it, but from what I could tell
You were showin' us that someday we'll be fine
Stoppin' in to say we'd be alright

Ooooooooh oooooooooh
Ooooooooh oooooooooh

And all the buds swingin' in the wind
Are you tellin' us it's time to hold on tight
And when the flowers are pushin' through the snow
It's you showin' us that someday we will rise
Showin' us that someday we will rise again

Ooooooooh oooooooooh
Ooooooooh oooooooooh

We're gonna make it, we don't have to do it on our own
We've gotta make it, since you didn't get the time you were owed

Ooooooooh oooooooooh
Ooooooooh oooooooooh

Each time we watch the sunset by the riverside
We'll be hopin' that you'll come in with the tide
Prayin' that you'll come home with the tide

Why can the water go out and come back in?
If you'd been half as free, would you have stayed?
Would you have stayed?

Woke up this morning and all I could feel
Was the warmth of your light, shinin' down.
Track Name: Still Turns
If I take it slow, would you wait for me?
I’m trying to go easy on myself these days
And if you feel I’m wasting your time
You can let me know
But I need to let it spin
And just sit while it goes

You never wanted to know what went on behind closed doors
You had to survive somehow too
I wonder if my tip toeing shook the floor
Ooh

It doesn’t feel good remembering like this
But she was a wanting mind behind an okay life
I wish it could’ve been easier to understand
You woulda helped, I swear

If I can stay in one spot until the sun comes up
I’ll have been there, I’ll have been there that night
Maybe I’ll forget those days sometime soon
But she was a wanting mind behind an okay life

And you woulda helped I swear,
You woulda helped I swear

(I think i’m finally growing out of it x13)
Track Name: Unchanged
There’s gonna be a war in the streets again
Boarding up the doors again
Closing down the schools again

We don’t have the time to run and hide
Go out in the streets show them how to fight

We didn’t win this round
But we won’t give up won’t give in
We don’t have that option
We’re living in a modern battleground
We don’t know about tomorrow

It was never our pick
To live in a world of hatred
Not everyone was raised the same
Not everyone thinks that’s okay

We didn’t win this round
But we won’t give up won’t give in
We don’t have that option
We’re living in a modern battleground
We don’t know if we’ll see tomorrow

Ooh our minds haven’t changed
Who we are is not a choice that we made
We’re fallin afraid, we’re young and not hopeful
Where do we go from here?

(trumpet solo)

There’s gonna be a war in the streets again
Closing down the schools again
Boarding up the doors again
Track Name: Cryptic
Sometimes I feel like you’re speaking in tongues
A language just for us
One that you act like I would understand
Just you and me’s enough

And I don’t know how to read you
You’re sewn tight at the seams
None of your walls are see through
But you think I know what you mean

Everything you say is so cryptic
You gotta let me in to see
Have I been wrong about everything
Is it you who can’t understand me

Oooh ooooh ooooh

Words and words strung one after another
It’s all going over my head
I swear I’m listening, or I’m trying to
But I don’t’ see how we can make this work

Everything you say is so cryptic
You gotta let me in to see
Have I been wrong about everything
Can you still not understand me

You’re talking and I’m looking
Seeing myself in your eyes
Thinking of what I know you’ve done
Tellin’ myself that’s why

Everything you say is so empty
I was right about you all along
And now that I know your code I’m throwing it away
Won’t waste another moment on you

(na na na na, na na na ah x8)
