Syndicate
Half way around the world lies the one thing that you want
Buried in the ground, hundreds of miles down
The first thing that arises in your mind when you awake
Is bending you til you break, let me hold you now

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Baby don’t forget, we haven’t lost it all yet

Don’t know what you’re made of til the one thing that you want
Is coming with the dawn and suddenly changes
The Monday syndicate meets everyone the same
All we’ve lost to the flame, listen to me now

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget, we haven’t lost it all yet
All we know for sure is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget we haven’t lost it all yet

Someday when this is over
We may still have no answer
For now its when I hold her
We are closer, we are closer

Baby close your eyes, don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget, we haven’t lost it all yet
All we know for sure is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget we haven’t lost it all yet
We haven’t lost it all yet
We are closer, we are closer

Absolute
I’ve seen this one before, the girl she gets away
Everybody knows it but no one tries to stop it
Cause she barely even knows him but if she could see inside
Everything is quiet as she waits to tell him who she is

Is this all we get to be absolute

Quiet but I’m sure there is something here
Tell me everything cause I want to hear

It’s a kiss sits upon on her lips that waits for planes and battle ships
She wants to be a dancer and he has got a picture
On his wall and it’s a sailor in a new port every night
Yet man was born to trouble like sparks fly upwards innocent

Is this all we get to be absolute

Quiet but I’m sure there is something here
Tell me everything cause I want to hear

All we are and all we want
40 years come and gone
All we are in photographs
Will never be taken

Quiet but I’m sure there is something here
Tell me everything cause I want you here
Quiet but I’m sure there is something here
Tell me everything cause I want to hear

You Found Me
I found God on the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west was all but won
All alone smoking His last cigarette
I said where You been, He said ask anything
Where were You when everything was falling apart
All my days were spent by a telephone
That never rang and all I needed was a call
That never came to the corner of First and Amistad

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me

In the end everyone ends up alone
Losing her, the only one who’s ever known
Who I am who I’m not and who I want to be
No way to know how long she will be next to me

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me

Early morning the city breaks and I’ve been calling for years and years
You never left me no messages, You never send me no letters
You got some kind of nerve taking all I want

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, where were You, where were You

Lost and insecure, You found me, You found me
Lying on the floor, surrounded, surrounded
Why’d You have to wait, where were You, where were You
Just a little late, You found me, You found me
Why’d You have to wait to find me, to find me

Say When
I see you there, don’t know where you come from
Unaware of a stare from someone
Don’t appear to care that I saw you and I want you
What’s your name, cause I have to know it
You let me in and begin to show it
We’re terrified cause we’re heading straight for it, might get it
You been the song playing on the background
All along but you’re turning up now
And everyone is rising to meet you, to greet you
Turn around and you’re walking toward me
I’m breaking down and you’re breathing slowly
You say the word and I will be your man, your man

Say when and my own two hands
Will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when and my own two arms
Will carry you tonight, tonight

We’re coming close and then even closer
We bring it in but we get no further
We’re separate, two ghosts in one mirror, no nearer
Later on if it turns to chaos
Hurricane coming all around us
See the crack, pull it back from the window, you stay low

Say when and my own two hands
Will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when and my own two arms
Will carry you tonight, tonight

I come across you lost and broken
You’re coming to but you’re slow in waking
You start to shake, you still haven’t spoken, what happened
They’re coming back and you just don’t know when
You want to cry but there’s nothing coming
They’re gonna push until you give in or say when
Now we’re here, and it turns to chaos
Hurricane, coming all around us
Double crack throws you back from the window, you stay low

It all began with a man & country
Every plan turns another century
Around again, another nation fallen
Maybe God can be on both sides
Of the gun, never understood why
Some of us never get it so good, so good
Some of this was here before us
All of this will go after us
It never stops until we give in, give in

Or say when and my own two hands
Will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when and my own two arms
Will carry you tonight, tonight

Never Say Never
Some things we don’t talk about,
Rather do without and just hold the smile
Falling in and out of love
Ashamed and proud of, together all the while
You can never say never
While we don’t know when
But time and time again
Younger now than we were before
Don’t let me go
Picture you’re queen of everything
Far as the eye can see under your command
I will be your guardian when all is crumbling
I’ll steady your hand
You can never say never
While we don’t know when
But time, time and time again
Younger now than we were before
Don’t let me go
We’re pulling apart and coming together again and again
We’re growing apart but we pull it together,
Pull it together again
Don’t let me go

Where The Story Ends
Trying not to lose my head but I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I’ll do instead, lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I’ve done, silhouette til the good lord come
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
Trying not to lose your own, boxing up everything, you’ve got
All you ever knew of home, you’re scared scared to see
Your mother there in the door, you wonder where did the years go
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is how the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
The violins make no sound
And I begin to feel the ground
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is where the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one

Enough For Now
The daughter’s father watches, quietly we assume
He’s not longer with us but he left this dusty room
In your name and it’s an honor, it’s a shame but it’s your honor
Take it on your shoulder til you can find another

That’s enough for now, he should’ve never left you broken
He should’ve held you, things your father never could do
That’s enough for now, he would’ve never left you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you

The century before you never could turn 21
Years and years he waited just watching for a son
For someone to go ahead, take the name he said
Years and years he waited and a daughter came instead

But that’s enough for now, he should’ve never left you broken
He should’ve held you, things your father never could do
That’s enough for now, he would’ve never left you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you

Breathing comes in pairs
Except for twice
One begins and one’s goodbye

Sixty years of sorrow he got 5 or 6 of bliss
Left my mother’s mother without so much as a kiss

But that’s enough for now, he never wanted to leave you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you
That’s enough for now, I would’ve never left you broken
I would’ve held you, things your father never could do
Words your father never told you

Sixty years of sorrow, he got 5 or 6 of bliss
Left my mother’s mother without so much as a kiss

Ungodly Hour
Don’t talk, don’t say a thing
Cause your eyes they tell me more than your words
Don’t go, don’t leave me now
Cause they say the best way out is through

And I am short on words knowing what’s occurred
She begins to leave because of me

Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour

I know you’re leaving now
Cause I held on to my way tightly
Stay still until you know
Tomorrow finds the best way out is through

And I am short on words knowing what’s occurred
She begins to leave because of me

Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour

We Build Then We Break
I don’t know you but I know what you did to her
She told me and I happen to believe her too

They will be 3 steps behind
You will not know what’s got you
Oh so you’re sorry now
All is not well, it’s not ended

Hold your breath til its over
There’s something left underwater

You’ve been quiet, there are things that you do not speak of
But if you stay gone a little longer your keys won’t work

Cause I will be 2 steps behind
You will not know what’s got you
Oh so you’re sorry now
All is not well, it’s not ended

Hold your breath til its over
There’s something left underwater

Happiness
Happiness was just outside my window
I thought it’d crash blowing eighty miles an hour
But happiness is a little more like knocking
On your door, you just let it in

Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can’t make it come or go
But you are gone, not for good but for now
And gone for now feels a lot like gone for good

Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks

Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself that’s enough for now
But happiness has a violent roar

Happiness it’s like the old man told me
Look for it and you’ll never find it all
But let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day you’ll wake up and she’ll be home

Vienna
The day’s last one-way ticket train pulls in
We smile for the casual closure capturing
There goes the downpour
Here goes my fare thee well

There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

Only so many words that we can say
Spoken upon long-distance melody
This is my hello
This is my goodness

There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

Maybe in five or ten yours and mine will meet again
Straighten this whole thing out
Maybe then honesty need not be feared as a friend or an enemy
This is the distance
And this is my game face

There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

So this is your maverick
This is Vienna

She Is
Do not get me wrong I cannot wait for you to come home
For now you’re not here and I’m not there, it’s like we’re on our own
To figure it out, consider how to find a place to stand
Instead of walking away and instead of nowhere to land

This is going to break me clean in two
This is going to bring me close to you

She is everything I need that I never knew I wanted
She is everything I want that I never knew I needed

It’s all up in the air and we stand still to see what comes back down
I don’t know where it is, I don’t know when, but I want you around
When it falls into place with you and I, we go from if to when
Your side and mine are both behind it’s indication

This is going to bring me clarity
This’ll take the heart right out of me

She is everything I need that I never knew I wanted
She is everything I want that I never knew I needed
This is going to bring me to my knees
I just want to hold you close to me

She is everything I need that I never knew I wanted
She is everything I want that I never knew I needed

Over My Head (Cable Car)
I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that’s how it’s got to be
It’s coming down to nothing more than apathy
I’d rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who’s still standing when it clears

Everyone knows I’m in
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She’s on your mind

Let’s rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
Say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along
But that’s disregard
Find another friend and you discard
As you lose the argument in a cable car
Hanging above as the canyon comes between

Everyone knows I’m in
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She’s on your mind

And suddenly I become a part of your past
I’m becoming the part that don’t last
I’m losing you and its effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
I won’t let it go down till we torch it ourselves

Everyone knows I’m in
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She’s on your mind

How To Save a Life
Step one you say we need to talk
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
And you begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you’ve told him all along
And pray to God he hears you

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
And you’ll begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

All At Once
There are certain people you just keep coming back to
She is right in front of you
You begin to wonder could you find a better one
Compared to her now she’s in question

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there

Looking for the right one you line up the world to find
Where no questions cross your mind
But she won’t keep on waiting for you without a doubt
Much longer for you to sort it out

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you started to compare to someone not there
Maybe you want it maybe you need it,
Maybe it’s all you’re running from,
Perfection will not come

And all at once the crowd begins to sing
Sometimes
We’d never know what’s wrong without the pain
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you’ve started to compare to someone not there
Maybe you want it maybe you need it
Maybe it’s all you’re running from
Perfection will not come

Maybe you want her maybe you need her
Maybe you had her maybe you lost her to another
To another

Fall Away
You swear you recall nothing at all
That could make you come back down
You made up your mind to leave it all behind
Now you’re forced to fight it out

You fall away from your past
But it’s following you

You left something undone, it’s now your rerun
It’s the one you can’t erase
You should have made it right, so you wouldn’t have to fight
To put a smile back on your face

You fall away from your past
But it’s following you
You fall away

Something I’ve done that I can’t outrun
Maybe you should wait maybe you should run
But there’s something you’ve said that can’t be undone

And you fall away from your past
But It’s following you

You fall away
It’s following you

Heaven Forbid
Twenty years it’s breaking you down, now that you understand there’s no one around.
Take a breath, just take a seat, your falling apart and tearing at the seams.

Heaven forbid you end up alone and don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

It’s on your face, is it on your mind, would you care to build a house of your own.
How much longer, how long can you wait, It’s like you wanted to go and give yourself away.

Heaven forbid you end up alone and don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

It feels good. Is that reason enough for you.
It feels good. Is that reason enough for you.

Heaven forbid you end up alone and don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright
Heaven forbid you end up alone and don’t know why
Hold on tight wait for tomorrow, you’ll be alright

Out of this one
Don’t know how to get you out of this one, don’t know how to get you out of this one,
Don’t know how to get you out of this one, don’t know how to get you out of this one.

Look After You
If I don’t say this now I will surely break
As I’m leaving the one I want to take
Forgive the urgency but hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh
I’ll look after you

There now, steady love, so few come and don’t go
Will you won’t you, be the one I always know
When I’m losing my control, the city spins around
You’re the only one who knows, you slow it down

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh
I’ll look after you

If ever there was a doubt
My love she leans into me
This most assuredly counts
She says most assuredly

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
I’ll look after you

It’s always have and never hold
You’ve begun to feel like home
What’s mine is yours to leave or take
What’s mine is yours to make your own

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh, oh

Hundred
The how I can’t recall
But I’m staring at what once was the wall
Separating east and west
Now they meet amidst the broad daylight

So this is where you are, and this is where I am
Somewhere between unsure and a hundred

It’s hard I must confess
I’m banking on the rest to clear away
Cause we have spoken everything
Everything short of I love you

You right where you are, from right where I am
Somewhere between unsure and a hundred

And who’s to say it’s wrong
And who’s to say that it’s not right
Where we should be for now

So this is where you are, and this is where I am
So this is where you are, and this is where I’ve been
Somewhere between unsure and a hundred

Vienna
The day’s last one-way ticket train pulls in
We smile for the casual closure capturing
There goes the downpour
Here goes my fare thee well

There’s really no way to reach me
‘Cause I’m already gone

Only so many words that we can say
Spoken upon long-distance melody

This is Vienna

Dead Wrong
If only I knew what I know
I’d make it a point to say so
To everyone that got me here
And everyone that made it

Clear I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way
When I was astray

I’m doing the best that I could
Trying my best to be understood
Maybe I’m changing slowly
I’d get out turn around if only I

Knew I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
As if I would lose my way
When I was dead wrong all along

Mine is not a new story
But it is for me

So I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
You thought I’d lost my way
When I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way

Did I really lose my way
Or are you afraid

Little House
She doesn’t look, she doesn’t see
Opens up for nobody
Figures out, she figures out
Narrow line, she can’t decide
Everything short of suicide
Never hurts, nearly works

Something is scratching its way out
Something you want to forget about

A part of you that’ll never show
You’re the only one that’ll ever know
Take it back when it all began
Take your time, would you understand
What it’s all about

Something is scratching its way out
Something you want to forget about
No one expects you to get up
All on your own with no one around

Trust Me
Looking for something I’ve never seen
Alone and I’m in between
The place that I’m from and the place that I’m in
A city I never been
I found a friend or should I say a foe
Said just a few things you should know
We don’t want you to see we come and we go
Here today, gone tomorrow

We’re only taking turns
Holding this world
It’s how it’s always been
When you’re older you will understand

If I say who I know it just goes to show
You need me less than I need you
Take it from me we don’t give sympathy
You can trust me trust nobody
But I said you and me we don’t have honesty
The things we don’t want to speak
I’ll try to get out but I never will
Traffic is perfectly still

We’re only taking turns
Holding this world
It’s how it’s always been
When you’re older you will understand

And then again maybe you don’t
And then again maybe you won’t

When you’re older you might understand
When you’re older you might understand
