Track Name: Rat-Eyed
There was a light that slithered in through the cracks in our room
And I tried to keep it out, made a patch of mud and blooms
But nothing seemed to work

It took me time to say of what I was so afraid
That there could be a flaw in the walls that we had framed
And there might be no cure

But I'd never been less sure
No, I've never been less sure

Because where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

There came a day when I could walk through the streets of my town
With my eyes up at the masses and even fall down
And nothing seemed to hurt

It took me time to look around and to be unafraid
To know that I could light the match, put my hand in the flame
And there would be no burn

And I'd never been more sure
No, I've never been more sure

Because where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

Rat-eyed and half-blind is no way to live life
With rat eyes and half-blind - well, it's no way to live life

Where I searched, I found mold in the corners
And when I grieved, I was the only mourner
Where I bled I found I'd blurred the borders
So now I, well I feel a slight bit surer

Rat-eyed and half-blind is no way to live life
Track Name: Scraps and Rinds
My phone is broke, my keys are gone and I am tired
I took a walk and then got lost and went for hours
The asphalt burns and all the stores say shoes required
Well I've got none and there's no grass to quench this fire

Will I make it till the rain
Will there be a chance for me again
I have got nothing and no one
I have got nothing and no one but me to blame

So I'm detached and all I worked to patch has died
Broke nearly all our ribs in trying to revive it
But no sound love was ever made from scraps and rinds
And by the time I realized, our well was dry

Will I make it through this pain
Will there be a chance for me again
I have got nothing and no one
I have got nothing and no one but me to blame

Perhaps that's it - the lesson's quick and I'll be fine
That I should not expect to keep what was once mine
That if he learns to love again, then so will I
But it's only me tonight it seems and that's alright

Because I made it through this day
And there will be a chance for me again
I have got nothing and no one
I have got nothing and no one
I have got nothing and no one to keep me tame
Track Name: Open Road
There'll be no home for me
There'll only be wandering
Out on the road, out on my own
There'll be no home for me

But there'll be air to breathe
And there'll be sights for seeing
Out on the road, out on my own
There will be air to breathe

So when I'm tired and when I'm low
Give me an open road
So that when I'm broken and when I'm old
I will still be my own

But dear you must agree
It's better you than me
Out on the coast, out on your own
It's better you than me

So when I'm tired and when I'm low
Give me an open road
So that when I'm broken and when I'm old
I will still be my own

So when I'm tired and when I'm low
Give me an open road
So that when I'm broken and when I'm old
I will still be my own
I will still be my own
I will still be my own
Track Name: Don't Follow
Didn't I tell you I am wrong?
Didn't I tell you to move on?
I thought I'd said my last so long
Yet here you are

Thought you had eyes enough to see
When something's not there that should be
Thought you had mind enough to know
When I said don't follow
And I said don't follow

I have bathed and kept you all the nights you wept through
Still you give nothing to me
So if I have misspoken and your heart was open
I'll be clear as I know to be
My dear - don't follow me
My dear - don't follow me

So if I have misspoken and your heart was open
I'll be clear as I know to be
My dear - don't follow me
My dear

Didn't I tell you I am wrong?
Didn't I tell you to move on?
Track Name: Missing Parts
I have had too many loves
Where every chance I had I'd run
Why do I like to say it's done
And just as it starts, I give up

Maybe I was born with missing parts
Was made with a blank where goes the heart
Maybe I got taught too late to start
And there's no hope for me in loving

See I never meant to be your one
Prefer you adore me than to love me
But somehow I always get outdone
And I take in love where I give none

Maybe I was born with missing parts
Was made with a blank where goes the heart
Maybe I got taught too late to start
And there's no hope for me in loving

Baby I was born with missing parts
I came with a blank where goes the heart
Honey I got taught too late to start
So there's no hope for me
There's no hope for me
There's no hope for me in loving
Track Name: My Kind
There will come a time in this life
When the fruit of your hands' work will be ripe
And you think, Who am I to sleep alone at night?
Well it's just a kind of why

If the day has done and burnt out your light
You've given your youth and all of your fire
You think, Who am I to give up a fight?
Well you're just the kind to try

And I think, Who am I to sleep alone at night?
I never was one to give up a fight
I worked my hands raw just for this bite
And I'm just the kind to try

So if you think, Who am I to sleep alone at night?
No matter how far, won't give up the fight
If you worked your hands raw just for this bite
Then you're just my kind of guy
