Track Name: Horizon
Kindle your keep
The riddle of the meek
Cuts my eyes of curiosity
Compromise the keel in me
Track Name: Your Eyes
I missed saying goodbye
I miss your eyes
The rain falls on your side
That I know you by

Smooth stones touch my feet
New sides of you that I need
The old dock splinters at me
Don’t talk just be

Tall grass cuts at my knees
Warm hair full of summer bees
Tire hangs from the broad leaves
Lets us hold each other and see

I won’t know
Why you don’t
Keep my name
Like I’ve done for you the same

I miss saying goodbye
I missed your eyes
Track Name: I Know
See the leaves ahead
The bugs in my bed
Know the spiders bite
The sea’s cold might

Keep the stars from reach
My thoughts not of me
See the summer come
I am not the only one

See the leaves are dead
The bugs are in their beds
Know a spiders right
The sea a cold sight

Keep the stars from reach
My thoughts are not of me
See the summer go
I know
Track Name: Common Kid
I picket in your office space
I sleep in your garage door frame
This cherry pit deep in my lung
Is the thought of you I knew would never come

I keel over the bond
I kept my sandals on wrong
Choking on the cherry pit
Wheezing on the mess of it

Pulling on your consciousness
Sprawling in confidence
Humbled in your arrogance
Prideful in your common kid
In your common kid

Seizing up on your booze
I’m holding on through my own ineptitude
To be alive is to be verbose
The simple thought that only you know

Pulling on your consciousness
Sprawling in your confidence
Humbled in your arrogance
Prideful in your common kid
In your common kid
Track Name: Stagger
Verily veered within it
Carefully stagger me with it
For the length of your eyes
For the reasonable snowy mile

Manic in the spring swell
Loiter your love about the bell
For the length of your tides
For the reasonable established smile

Furrowing your fingers at me
Burrowing your eyes of blade & seed
For the length of your knell
For the reasonable silence fell

Hindering the seasons passing
Cross & string me up as our Dad sings
For the length of your vault
For the reasonable Father’s fault

Will you know me as a friend?
