Track Name: Lazy Day Casualty
my feet aren't in front of me, they're trailing behind
with road signs and stop lights; mosaic and bright
i always cringe the first time

a lazy day casualty, armed with nothing up my sleeve
you were always there to tug my coat but i was never brave
we stopped moving forward, we're just walking sideways

let's make a tv series they'll never show
we only get one pilot episode
a crazy cast of characters, filling sets with inside jokes
we'll make ourselves laugh till we can't breathe

i don't want to have anywhere to be
i just want to stand still.
Track Name: Crooked Portrait
carried yourself like a crooked portrait on it's way to the black market
but who's gonna pay for you?
acted like i didn't notice, i stayed quiet and i kept my distance
but i saw every move

i think that dress weighs you down
like an anchor you tie to yourself
and i'm not surprised

what hour is this? you're like a worried mother pacing and waiting for a call
but you write the bad news
pictured you as amelia earhart flying till you disappear
make them all search for you

i think that dress weighs you down
like an anchor you tie to yourself
and i'm not surprised

it's always something with you.
Track Name: Dreams
the windshield's a movie screen for the scene to pass thru
though i stare straight ahead, i don't see much of anything

i'm just watching from a safe distance

speed down, slow up i lose control
hit the ground, not a sound at all

my dreams keep killing me
but i'm just watching from a safe distance
this isn't happening.
Track Name: Your Ghost
i'll make a promise to myself that i won't be too scared
but i never keep promises i make to myself

your ghost is nothing like you, it's so much older

you're not the spitting image of anything anymore
you're just a blurry photograph in a paranormal magazine

your ghost is nothing like you, it's so much older.
Track Name: Safety Net
if you could be my safety net
and always be there to catch
anytime i miss a beat
and the ground slips away from my feet

i could use an extra set of eyes
watch where i walk so they'll be no surprise
where the roots keep pushing up the sidewalk.
Track Name: New Year's Day
we start the new year 50 points behind
i need a come back and the things i should have found by now
i'll wait till i find it somehow

i want to fall in love the way movies say it will happen
to kiss on a bridge with lightning framing the scene
your head on my shoulder whispering something to me.
Track Name: One Step at a Time
you show up late, an hour or two
there's no excuse that they won't see through
so you punish them while smiling
to keep the make up from running down your chin

you just need to get through the night
one step at a time

then you wake up in the middle of the night
you can't get back to the dream you had
so you picture it in your head
but it's not enough to get back

you just need to get through the night
one step at a time.
Track Name: Anything (Opportunities Missed)
i'm not running away, i'm just hiding my face
out of the way and nestled tight
you'll never notice if i do it right
add it up year after year
so many thoughts that you'll never hear

it's what i wanted more than anything
you're what i wanted more than anything.
Track Name: Leave the Light On
all the words that you can't avoid linger with you over your shoulders
and at night you take them with you safe and sound under the covers

if you could please leave the light on when you go

count the cracks in the ceiling from here i see about a thousand
you will notice, soon you'll notice and i'll think of something to say

if i just open my mouth.
