Track Name: Light the Flame
The jungle cats will lurk
And I admire their footwork
No she don't disturb a thing
Leaves it just like when she came

The salmon leaps so high
Trying to get to the source
But he doesn't need a road map
To choose his own course

Unlike the flame
The ashes don't distinguish
What remains
All that was extinguished
Light the flame
That burns up everything
All the same
The wake of destruction
Is in the game

You know the rules just don't apply
When you're using loaded dice
The road to short comings
Is paved with oversights
And there's a name
That often goes unspoken
But the shame
Is when we don't acknowledge
Who's to blame
For each and every action
There's a way
To realize who's hurtin

Unlike the flame
The ashes don't distinguish
What remains
All that was extinguished
Light the flame
That burns up everything
All the same
The wake of destruction
Is in the game

Light the flame
Ignite me I'm on fire
Light the flame
Ignite me I'm on fire
Track Name: Jigsaw
If I fall apart you promise that you'll pick me up?
Put the pieces back together like I know you can
Jigsaw and all the pieces are all over the floor
Get the corners and the edges come together
We fit together like we're made for each other
We fit together like there could be no other
Every piece that comes together makes a picture
Every section is a part of something larger
They can't take you away from me girl
They can't take you away from me girl
We fit together like we're made for each other
We fit together like pieces of a puzzle

Keep it close enough to keep it all contained my only
Love it's all that we can do to keep the picture rolling
Perfection is the way the colors fill the space up
Landscapes of such a worry free environment
You're too beautiful for words
You're too beautiful for words
We fit together like we're made for eachother
We fit together like pieces of a puzzle
Track Name: Limbo
I remember when
every day seemed different
than the one that came before
the one that came before
I could hardly wait to greet the day
up and out the door
leaves are falling
the woods are calling
trees are tall and
the autumn colors
the mountains know my name
the mountains know my name

the mountains know my name
Now time seems to move so slowly
I feel like I'm stuck in limbo
is it just the age I'm living in
or is it me?

Do you remember
every day a new adventure
every day is new
every day was new
down the hill into the woods
cross the moss ravine
across the fallen tree
soaking wet
with last night's rain
watch the droplets roll away
this valley knows my name

Now time seems to move not at all
I feel like I'm stuck in limbo
is it just the age I'm living in
or is it me?
Track Name: Method and the Masses
Keep on making the same mistake
We don't ever know how to take
A hint or a warning, goin till morning
Right or wrong we can't catch a break
cardiac movement heart's even beat
Keep the rhythm with the pace of my feet
Blood gonna flow, heads are gonna roll
Sound's drowning out the ground's coming Up
Liquour keeps flowing women keep knowin
Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming on up


Can't you just wait
can't you wait can't you just wait
Can't you be gracious can't you be patient
Not with this service no with this treatment
The way they are treating us is egregious
Same conversation different variation
Sound's drowning out the ground's coming up
People keep talking I just keep walking
Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming up

Walking wide eyed like you're wandering
wondering what the world is thinking, what the world's pondering
The trance of transit
The trains full of transients
The typical riff raff
The magical mish mash
Method must be proven masses keep moving
sound's drowning out the ground's coming up
Aloof with sure footing
proof is in the pudding
sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming on up


Waiting in line all the time
Take your turn go ahead you were first
I don't mind, are your sure?
Fashionistas and the broke baristas
All the stupid hipsters and the poor drifters
Perfect attitude, posture and the mood
Sound's drowning out the ground's coming up
Method and the madness Satiated sadness
Sound keeps drowning out the ground keeps coming up.
Track Name: Darkest Before the Dawn
Don't ask me to spell it out,
I don't even know the rules yet,
It's this nebulous concept and I'm feeling my way
I wish that i could describe it,
But the meaning of the words
Can't put it on my finger on it
Maybe if i said the right thing
Made the perfect sentence
It would all work out
And they'd, just fall in line

When you spell it out
It ruins it

All get in to line
All get in to line

It's always darkest before the dawn
When you seem to lose your way
Track Name: Thin Ice
You're skating on thin ice
Trying to test how far you can go
well watch out for dark water
coming up from below
You're skating on thin ice
trying to test how far you can go
trying to find out just
how much I really know

You're constantly testing me
You're constantly testing me
You're constantly testing me my love
And I don't know who
I don't know who
I don't know who
I don't know who you've become

Hello my feline friend
I was not so kind to you in the end
I hope my transgressions on our friendship won't prevent
A mending
A mending
I'm not defending
My ways or my words
But words have a way
words have a way
words have a way yea
words have a way of deafening the blow
oh no
Track Name: Excuse Me
What you say my lonely
My one and only
Give to me the thing that
I miss, it's a simple intelligence

Tell me why girl
you got to complicate it all
mixing up my signals
with your semaphore
it's so simple and straight forward girl
Innuendo, "hope you catch my drift" you said
"written there between the lines
the hidden messages
are there as clear as day" but all that i can say is

excuse me , it's news to me

Darling you'll never know
It's a vicious cycle
Darling you'll never know
Life is like a spiral

pretty as a picture smile like mystery
give a clue to me there's something
or other that i'm missing
it's the piece that i wasn't given
something was hidden
You can sure dance
and I like the way you do
but I hope it's not the only thing that you got goin for you
something there behind the eyes
says you got it goin on i'm sorry but i didn't know

excuse me it's news to me

Baby could you please inform me
I'm in the dark here baby
Could you tell me one thing only
Baby would you help me make sense
cause you're my only darling
save me from not knowing

excuse me it's news to me
Track Name: Fool's Gold
I've been fooled before
Looking down in the sand
The sunlight caught my eye
But it was just dirt in my hand
You're asking me to slow the water
Asking if I can
But the best that I can do
Is build a dam

There are many creeks that you could pan to find the ore
Many peaks that I could mine, but I don't want to any more
You can call me a fool for getting caught in the rain
You can call me a fool on a fool's errand
You can call me a fool for saying oh you're not that old
But honey please don't call me fool's gold

Something's on your mind
That can pull you away
One moment you're mine
But I can't tell if you'll stay
Save yourself for something else
So you don't go too deep
Keep something that's yours
And only yours to keep
Giving in to what you can't
Begin to control
All in all it's what you make
Of what you do not know

Let yourself let yourself let go of it
The moment the moment takes care of it
We'll find then we'll find that we belong
We'll find we've been here all along
