Track Name: We Miss You
You left the world on your own
To the farthest moon, all alone
To watch the Earth go ‘round
Everyone below
Every turn a year, a year of letting go

We miss you, we do

You rode a wake of light and star’s sand
Through the darkened void to the hand
That pulls the worlds around on a lighted string
When sleep it finally came
You remembered everything

We miss you, we do

If you wanted to stay the same,
You could have it if you’d not gone all the way
This far away
If you wanted to stay awake,
You could have it if you don’t stop running away
Stop running away

We miss you, we do
Track Name: There's Nowhere Farther Than Tomorrow
Have you ever seen your eyes
Moving up and down your head?
Have you ever seen the way they hide?

Have you ever seen the dead
Easing up and down your street?
Have you ever seen the lives they’ve led?

Nowhere farther than tomorrow
Raining tones is what you hear
Nowhere farther than tomorrow
From here

Holding on a single phrase
Living like they’re on TV
Calling on a word to make it all OK

Waking when the sun goes down
Spending every day in bed
Pretending that the light won’t find you anyway

Nowhere Farther than tomorrow
Raining tones is what you hear
Nowhere farther than tomorrow
From here
Track Name: Keeping It On
You've got a lot to get ready for
There's still a wreck on the way.
Even though you'll get rain here
You can't believe that you'll stay.

What have you got to lose?
Everybody's moving on.

You said you're done with the running around
Don't want to pick up the pace.
You don't know why you even try anymore,
You're still a diamond in spades.

What have you got to lose?
Everybody's moving on.

You're here because you want to be
All the things that make you want to break
All the promises you had to keep
And go away.

What have you got to lose?
Everybody's moving.
What have you got to lose?
Everybody's moved on.

Keeping it on till the radio plays your song
Track Name: Stellar Jay
Blue Jay, you know,
Stellar Jay, you can tell.

Everything we didn't know,
Everything we never had,
Everything we never said.
