Track Name: Train Ticket
I'm on my way to where I want to be
Don't cause a fuss no I don't make a scene
But everywhere that I find in between leaves me wanting more

They're just distractions let them be
They'll fade away just wait and see cause everything fades

Still there's more to come
This isn't it this can't be it
This can't be all
The feeling comes and goes
I waited for you in the spring
I'm still waiting in the fall

I'm on my way to where I want to be
Don't cause a fuss no I don't make a scene
Still everywhere that I find in between leaves me wanting more

This ticket tells me where to go
Which train to board and at what time
They take my ticket and I know it's much too late to change my mind
Track Name: A Celebration
It's gonna take a little time to get used to this
It's gonna take a little time to calm down
and I've been crowned king of the underworld
I wear my robes with pride as I'm watching this ship run aground

And I'm just guessing, I may not be right
but you're not helping and try as I might
We turn to stone, frozen just as we are
We'll try to rise, but we don't get very far, well..

I don't know if something's missing
I don't know, but I'm afraid
Terrified that something's ending
Terrified that I'm to blame
But the beauty of what once was
lets the regrets fade away
Leave your problems at the door
Let's celebrate

Oh god let me savor this
Oh god let me hold on tight
and I know I can't have it all
but oh god I can't help but try

and I won't miss all that I've thrown away for you

I don't know if something's missing
I'm not sure, but I'm afraid
Terrified that something's ending
Terrified that I'm to blame
But the beauty of what once was
lets the regrets fade away
Leave your problems at the door
Let's celebrate
Track Name: Your Brothers And Sisters
Twenty years too late you first felt the dark
that makes things dim, so you gave in and you called home
You won't take the gift, you won't sink that low
All the red stops are building blocks that you have found

You stayed out all night looking for a fight
You saw the light let off by those with too much luck
Neither land nor sea will be called your grave
You seek the flame that cleanses all their memories

You'll take the known path, the safe bet
say "I have things to lose, I can't just throw this away"
You tap your foot, look to the door
say "I have things to do, I can't just sit here"

but we'll sing songs to you we know that you'll love
We'll sing 'til you're asleep, and then we'll go

Your brothers & sisters, we're all here
And nothing good will come of it

and you found your light and you took it home
Made it your own, made sure it'd never want for love
but there is no cage that could make it stay
You spend your days searching for ways to block the door

You'll take the known path, the safe bet
say "I have things I need, I can't just throw this away"
You tap your foot, look to the door
say "I have things to do, I can't just sit here"

but we'll sing songs to you we know that you'll love
We'll sing 'til you're asleep, and then we'll go

Your brothers & sisters, we're all here
And nothing good will come of it
Track Name: Theater
This is my chance
I've never needed anything quite like this
All eyes are on me, waiting
I pause for effect

Please don't cry
my time in the spotlight has come

This is my chance
To say something while people are listening
I can't share this
No, this is my chance

Please don't cry
my time in the spotlight has come
Track Name: Good News
The bells are ringing no man's land down in New Orleans
Where my friends wait for me, I'll be there soon
A summer gone I welcome fall, I'll spend it aimlessly
Treat every falling leaf like it's a sign

And it will be so fun waiting for good news
I'm taking all my cues from you now
but the drone just gets louder, the waves hitting the rock
I'm studying a lock that has no key

The fire's gone our love now is as an ember flame
burns softer every day but it's still there
I can't I won't leave it alone, I am not the same
No I am not the same as them

And it would be so dumb to let this slip away
I see the game you play and I'm still here
I'm looking for something that probably isn't there
I'm very well aware, I turn to go

My friends are leaving, they've all got places they need to be
I tag along to see the sidewalk swell
A parachute, a safety net, the spinning never stops
My pace slows to a crawl, and I take root

My back is turned and hope creeps in
coursing through my veins, convincing me to stay
and wait my turn
You pass through, I'll take my time
A special shade of gray I saved for just today
Colors the sky

And it would be so fun waiting for good news
I'm taking all my cues from you now
But the drone just gets louder, the waves hitting the rock
I'm studying a lock that has no key
Track Name: A Place To Come Home To
I had plans but plans fall through
I got lost so I've come back to
Old places, people, and things that I thought were gone
Take them away I can't be here for long
but I don't mind

cause what can I do
what can I do
what can I do to pass the time until then

Fall asleep staring at the wall
I dreamt dreams filled with nothing at all
You're convinced but we'll never know
Your big ideas, isn't it pretty to think so
but I don't mind

cause what can I do
what can I do
what can I do to pass the time until then

I had thought every step would feel brand new
I had hoped I would have more to show you
but I've found a place to come home to
I can wait for the next breakthrough
and I don't mind

oh what can I do
what can I do
what can I do to pass the time until then
