Track Name: All Affirming
I drive, through four lanes of strange, and you said, magic
I'm aware, that nothing about this situation is tragic
And I, would like to get to know me
And I look to you as you're asleep in the passenger's seat
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away
for a while

I strive, for concepts and change that I'm not sure of
I admit, I've lost all the things I liked the allure of
And I, would like to tell you everything
But I know how this works, and I don't mind waiting
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away
for a while

I fly, through five miles of mange that is the highway
Going, I've never seen it like this on a Friday
But I, could not just travel aimlessly
I know it would take some time for amnesty
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away
for a while

If I were at my home,
I would sit on my couch that smells like cigarettes
inside my house that isn't finished yet
and I'd speak to you, as if you were in the room

I smile, on all those who estrange themselves from this pavement
Knowing, I can't even see, the road's too fragrant
But I, could not just be a slave to this
to all the other steel boxes and radio bliss
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away
for a while

If I were so honest,
I love the scent of the suburbs in
the summer time and your sun soaked skin
but I'd, know better than to be all affirming

I drive, through four lanes of strange, and you said, magic
I'm aware, that nothing about this situation is tragic
And I, would like you to believe in me
Now you're awake and look at me like you don't know me
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away
for a while
Track Name: Katrina
I went for a drive
I'm afraid for my life
and you just don't know
I don't wanna hear it
No, I don't wanna hear it, no

Katrina, Katrina (x2)

I don't know what I'm doing here...
But I want to stick around and make it all alright
Apparently you disagree
you just want to ravage land and not put up a fight

I don't wanna hear it, no
'Cause I don't wanna fear it
And I don't wanna believe it's true
And I don't wanna be here with you

Katrina, Katrina (x3)
Track Name: In The Air
I don't know that I'm the same to you, that you are to me
I just know that I'm ashamed to view your insanity
You were standing on my front lawn on a summer's day
I was hoping that you'd never want to fly away
but you did, you did, you did, you did

I don't know that I'm invincible, but I'm still alive
and I don't claim to be invisible, but still, I try
I was standing on your rooftop in the pouring rain
I was hoping that you'd never want to feel this way
but you did, you did, you did, you did

I don't know that I can be the same
and I don't think that I can take this blame from you
but I'll try

I don't know if I've been critical, in your eyes
but I want you to know that you've been pivotal, to my life
I met you with your hands up in the air tonight
I was hoping that you'd wanna try with all your might
and you did, you did, you did, you did

I follow the lines around your face
they tell me all I need to know
they tell me where not to go
but I don't mind, I don't mind

Just like these old feelings here
and these old souls of ours
we'll both come to life tonight
Track Name: Miles And Miles
If I showed you how it worked, I bet you'd know just what to do
but little do you know that I don't have a fucking clue
but you do, and I know you

If I told you what to say, I bet you'd know just what I'd hear
but you know all to well that I'm in so much fucking fear
but you're here all these years

And you're miles and miles above me
but your two feet are below me
and you're years and years behind me
and I wish you weren't, I wish you weren't

It's now, it's new, it's all for you
and I just can't believe in anything
It's now, it's new, it's me you're talking to
and I just can't believe you were here

'Cause you're miles and miles above me
but your two feet are below me
and you're years and years behind me
and I wish you weren't, I wish you weren't

My hand on your shoulder
My winter, your stint here
You're colder and bolder than me

My hand on your shoulder
My winter, your stint here
You're colder and bolder than me

You're miles and miles above me
but your two feet are below me
and you're years and years behind me
and I wish you weren't, I wish you weren't
Track Name: Another Day
Press your hands together and sing with me
here on the grass, so brown and dry
Derive the words from your alphabet
the one you told me another day
Make sure everyone can hear

Hook your thumbs together and make him swim
There in the sea, so blue and black
Give him the skill of your confidence
So you can stay here another day
Make sure everything is clear

Give applause together 'till it bites down
in the den of inequity
Give him his moment of reconcile
So he can come back another day
Make sure everyone's in fear

Wave your arms around it, and sway with us
up in the sky so red and green
Take a moment, collect your things
you may not have another day
Make sure everything's held dear

So, please. Consume it all--the life
because we miss you, child
Because we miss you

So, please. Come on and guide us, child
to another day, to another day
