Track Name: TREADING CONCRETE
Would you rather tip toe
Or be stuck down on your knees?
Luckily you have the choice to stand up on your feet
And breathe deeply
Don’t trap yourself in this dirty project
And project your thoughts onto this white sheet
And follow me

We have a tendency to keep it legit
And forget about it
I swear it won’t happen this time
Live in this moment
And breathe this fresh air
It won’t shock the system
So need not despair

For all I know
We could have just fallen behind tonight
For all I see
For this sake, for my sake, let’s just be
Let’s just be

They misspelt his name, and forgot his birthday
For this type of love there’s nothing to hold onto
On any floor, in anyplace, in any building
So take the quickest way down and out
Track Name: RENTAL NIGHTS
We danced the night away in a cottage far up north
We drained the Jamie and we argued back and forth
There’s no edge up here, just a slight slope it’s easy

It’s retreats like these that work best to ease me
Nights like these are all we need
In order, to keep ourselves in order
The mornings are steep, and we’ll surely need a time out
To sort it all out

We’re stuck on a tight rope
Drugged on some high hopes
It’s a thirst we can quench
If we look to our friends

We were rung out all day - no headaches he prayed
Our wheels hold steady and our hearts aren't so heavy
We’re older and tense and it helps in a sense
Because it’s all worth mourning we’re paying this morning
