Track Name: Stop You
I wanna to put a stop to
You feeling bad
But if you wanna stay mad
I'm not gonna stop you

I know you wanna scream at
Your dead beat dad
But then you just
Go buy some plaid instead and
I'm not gonna stop you

I know I make a good
Landing pad
But I must say this rage is
Just a tad
Too much for me
I'm just trying to get happy myself

I just wanna step out
Shake some new hands
Maybe I'll understand something more and
I don't wanna leave without you

(Instrumental)

You make me wanna try to change the wiring of man
But then you feel small and he's just a sad old fad
Well, that's fine with me
But does that make you happy yourself?

I wanna put a stop to
You feeling so bad most times
But if you wanna stay mad
I'm never gonna stop you
Track Name: The Beast
The beast said he never thought he'd see me going
But then again he must have had a way of knowing.
That one more winter would turn into the next.
Then he'd dangle the sun and my soul would need a rest.

I always told myself
That this never would be over
How can I know myself
Unless I tell the story over

When I came here I was barely standing
I learned the art of a smoother landing
I met the people who comprise my heart
And if I know them at all they would want me to start.

And I always told myself
That this never would be over
How can I know myself
Unless I ​tell the story over

(inst).

I always tell myself
What I've always told myself
and I've always told myself
what I always tell myself

I couldn't think of someone who could love me better
You can take me from the ​city we can go wherever
​It would be such a disservice to myself to stay
Just because I don't want to change so I push you away

I always tell myself
What I've always told myself
and I've always told myself
what I always tell myself

And what I've always told myself
Is that this never will be over
And I told myself again the day I looked over my shoulder
Track Name: Tired of Me
​Tired of Me

I've been trying to change my ways gracefully
Somedays I can own my shit or I make it your responsibility

Are you tired of me yet
I love you too but I forget what you just said​

​I can count the reasons why I've got all my insecurities
But when I push them all aside you're just the best thing I've got going

No I'm not tired of you yet
And I'm so sorry for all the times I get so stuck in my head

Cause you know time (Takes so long sometimes)
But not for long (I don't feel that young anymore)
Are you still mine (Day night, uphill climb)
And you say yeah and it just blows my mind.​

​(Inst).

So you and I let's just forge ahead
And I'll try to keep comparisons to a minimum before we're both dead

But are you tired of me yet
You say you love me and then minutes later I forget
So that's what I will try to do
Try to be a bit kinder to myself for you
Track Name: Good Ship
It's coming along
We've both got our limitations
I never asked you to be strong
But you are guilty by association

And if you feel I've asked too much of you
Well then it's true
But at least I know
I did all I could do

Now did I get this wrong
You heard my name and it was an ego blow
And you just want to belong
Do you think you know her, no I don't think so

I thought we had at last agreed this bullshit was the past
But go on carry on any way you'd like to

Cause it's not that you're gone
It's the vacuum that's been created
I am good, I am strong
What we had is unrelated

How's it coming along
Are you taking time to see a new light
Are you singing new songs
I said that I'd try, not that I'd fight

Time does its humble best
The hardest part of coming west
And I will come around anywhere that I want to

Been so long
I've been gone
How's the past being recreated
I know what's right
I know what's wrong
When my good ship comes it's cause I waited
You don't want good, you don't want strong

It's coming along
We've both got our limitations
Track Name: Into the Throes
Tell me the reason that you go
Look at yourself and it's into the throes
Days that pass are the ground below
Right up above, you find not so long ago
