Track Name: Not Yours, Not Mine
where does it go when it's out of your hands,
when it's out of your home
where do you go when you're out of your head,
when you're out of your mind

It's a farce, 'to belong.'
there is no thing i can call my own

not yours, not mine
not yours, not mine

It's a collection of ins and outs and odds and ends
transient bits of house and mind
anchored for a time, I don't know how much time.

the pieces of me may someday become pieces of you,
nothing is new
there is no thing I can call my own

not yours, not mine
not yours, not mine

What is it to own,
What is it to be,
what is it to belong,
what is it to be?

i don't know
Track Name: Amnesia
squeeze my shoulders right past your shoulders
while trying to keep it in the cup
too many people are here this evening
the floor's all sticky, you're at my ear screaming
my thoughts are scattered, i can barely hear you at all

tonight i just want to go home
my mind just won't leave me alone

clench the courage here in my cup
feeling less as i drink it up
suddenly i'm no one as i watch her talk to that someone
the sensitive boy says she forgot to know me

tonight i just want to go home
in a crowd, i feel more alone

i give up
i step out for my biannual cigarette
i'm trying too hard just to have fun
so l leave the light of the dim sun
i disappear and hope she'll come to find me

tonight i just want to go home
in a crowd i feel more alone
tonight i'd just rather be home
cause my mind, won't leave me alone
Track Name: Bye Bye Love
there goes my baby with someone new
she sure looks happy
i'm sure am blue
she was my baby till he stepped in
goodbye to romance that might have been

bye bye love
bye bye happiness
hello loneliness
i think i'm gonna cry

bye bye love
bye bye sweet caress
hello emptiness
i feel like i could die

bye bye my love, goodbye

i'm free from romance
i'm through with love
i'm through with counting the stars above
and here's the reason why i'm so free
my loving baby is through with me

bye bye love
bye bye happiness
hello loneliness
i think i'm gonna cry
bye bye love

bye bye sweet caress
hello emptiness
i feel like i could die

bye bye my love, goodbye
bye bye my love, goodbye
bye bye my love, goodbye
bye bye my love, goodbye
Track Name: Hold On, Hold Out
all you want is to keep yourself together now,
as you think of this home to which you're tethered
all you want is to keep yourself together now,
as they give names to what holds the rest together

you're the universe trying to know itself
at the cost of you knowing yourself

although you don't feel at home,
just hold on, hold on

all you want is to hold your head together when
you know that your mind is just matter
all you want is to hold your head together when
you're just shapes that shake between spaces

as you see your sight, as you feel your heart
when realize you're just parts held together

although you can't know this skin bone home,
just hold on
hold on

vibration
rotation
Track Name: Half Moon
as we walk, and you take my hand
all the time in between turns to all but a moment

it's you that i once belonged to
it's you that i once would come home to
it's you i'm a fool to hold on to
still i wonder if you'll return soon

i still see you as i see you,
with the half moon hanging silent above you

but you now see something i'll never again see,
and you now believe these things that i can't believe
now you're hiding away, covering your head in black
now you're hiding away, gone and you're not coming back

it's you that i once belonged to
it's you that i once would come home to
now it's hard to hear you tell me, 'i love you'
and we can't even though we both want to

it's you that i once belonged to
it's you that i long to come home to
but only those unseen hands will hold you
and only that unseen man can know you
Track Name: Wait and See
all this wanting and all this waiting
growing close but lines dividing
it's a gradual happening
it's a slow softening

throughout my days i've carried you with me
out of sight, but part of me
now soon you will remain close to me
i'm glad we've waited patiently

as you're offering, yourself to me
a thought becomes reality
i hope to be
who you want, who you need

in this endless life, in this open sea
i'll drift with you, you'll drift with me
all the unforetolds and the unforeseens,
quiet our minds, leave them be

who can say, who can see
what may come or who we'll be
as for now i'm just glad to be
i'm glad for this you and me

we'll wait and see
you and me
Track Name: Leaving
soon i'll unname you home
the heartland where i've long belonged
this place where i'm glad to've grown
to've rooted these feet, shaped my bones
soon i'll unname you home
unearth my feet and shake the moss off my clothes

still, i don't know where to be as i'm learning how to be

soon i'll say so long
to follow an unseen road
to get myself to the golden coast
surrounded by faces unknown
soon i'll say so long
welcome unease and time alone

still, i don't know where to be
will it be the place for me?

so long
