Track Name: The Postman
went to the postman
dropped off my letters
sweating it out in the sun
trying to love everyone
been to the circus
it can’t entertain you
I carry my love like a gun
trying to love everyone

it brings me pain when I’m awake
but I can’t take that away from you

out of the city
into the country
then left the country to run
try not to love anyone
back to the postman
dropped off my letters
try not to forget anyone
I carry my love like a gun

it brings me pain when I’m awake
but I can’t take that away from you

I got a way to get back to you

picture the postman
dropping my letters
everyone knows what I’ve done
trying to love everyone
hands on the table
body is labeled
with names of the father and son
but they never loved anyone

it brings me pain when I’m awake
but I can’t take that away from you
Track Name: Whisper
paper in the rain
words that wash away
they whisper
see an aero plane
wish to fly away
you’ll miss her

make a paper crane
put it in the lake
watch it float away
turn away your face
knowing that today is just a whisper

I think that letting you go is the best thing
but I could be wrong
or it’s the last time that I ever get it right

blindly through the mist
a step is just a wish
and you slip away
the heaviest of things
that you can never lift
is just a whisper
Track Name: Projections
maybe it’s the same old ghost
they’ve been seeing in the lane
by the lamppost
she’s been waiting for a train
by the old tracks
that she’s never getting on
cause it’s never coming back

she is a light that the world cannot blink from it’s eyes
maybe an energy burst from a parallel time

projections

there’s a little boy
so I hear
he visits in your sleep
whispers in your ear
you can hear him in the hall
but he’s not there
you can feel him in the room
but don’t fear

poor little boy left alone in the home that he died
bound to the house til the energy in him subsides

projections

I hope you move along
and I’ll see you in my dreams
for now I wanna live

projections
Track Name: Heaven All The Time
sorry that I waited til it’s too late
but I don’t want to be any other place
I just want to see a familiar face
leaving me here was your great escape

Molly Molly won’t you do it again
Molly Molly won’t you do it again
it’s heaven all the time
it’s heaven all the time
it’s heaven all the time
oh

hanging around me was a big mistake
you get the blame for the ones I make
but it could never be any other way
and it’s all the same at the end of the day

Molly Molly won’t you do it again
Molly Molly won’t you do it again
it’s heaven all the time
it’s heaven all the time
it’s heaven all the time
oh
Track Name: Paisley Iris
Paisley Iris’ eyes
looking up to the sky
sun spots are coming alive
cozying up to her mind

dripping like dew we are looking at you
and we see right through
Iris is off and she’s making us watch
and she’s making us wait
it’s making us late
but we all got a taste

why does she color the world
she’s coloring all of us
I wanted a look
through the eyes of the Iris I know

lazy eyes on the prize
making us fall out of line
Paisley Iris is fine
she’s looking at looking glass spies

suspicious of things that are put in her drink
she can see right through
Iris is gone, she’s been putting us on
we’ve been putting her down
but now we have found
that she’s painted this town

why does she color the world
she’s coloring all of us
I wanted a look
through the eyes of the Iris I know
