Track Name: Consent
You've seen my cards
I've got a lucky hand
How can I help you
When they think that no means yes

Two people in a room together
What's on their minds?
One knows one but not the other
One might be fearful
One might be lusting
Both taught not to ever talk about it

Taught not to ever talk about it
Track Name: Turn The Page
Wars go by, planets go by, seconds go by, as time goes by.
Why do I feel like I'm standing standing still, as life goes by, as time goes by.
Track Name: Basic
What would you do if you didn't have to do anything?
You can't show me, because you don't have the time, the money, the time

Give me food and shelter and some clothes and a map
I will show you just how much I can pay you back

Don't write us off
Don't tell us what we deserve and then take it from us
We will notice and be made to do, to say
Track Name: Hero
Are you the hero that we need?
Are you the perfect sun shining down on our cold lives?
If not, can you please just pretend. For all of our sakes
We will shower you with our praise.

Were you the hero we needed?
Were you the perfect sun shining down on our cold lives?
Did you hide your doubts, your flaws?
If so we thank you but you can show all of that now.
Track Name: Tell Me
Say I told you I dreamed I built a city
More than a thought, more than a fantasy

Say I dreamed again I became leader to millions
What would you say, what would you say to me?

Who are you now, to tell me
I could do anything that I dream of?

I'll give up my dreams so I can be happy right now
Don't console me, I'll console you
I am alright now.

Who are you now, to tell me
I could do anything that I dream of?
Track Name: Soak
Soaking in feeling and some of your sayings
and I can't believe you, no.

I think you're wrong, but I am on your side
I think you're wrong,
did you know that I am on your side?

We are not enemies, but I see you're angry
but can you loon into my eyes and see love?

I think you're wrong, but I am on your side
I think you're wrong,
did you know that I am on your side?
Track Name: The Years
In between lives
having a dream about the future avery night
the compass needle doesn't point forward in time

Who will you be?
A question we're so lucky to have posed to us
still there's no answer that will satisfy out need

Time to forget,
The years will wait for you yet

Who made the rules?
Who made extraordinary the least you could do?
No reason for the pressure they put on you

Time to forget
The years will wait for you yet
Track Name: In Case
I know too much for my own, my own good
Sometimes I want to start again
I know too little for our own our own good
Sometimes I hope to seize the day

Ten years ago it was hard, hard to see
that time could bring us everything
Ten years from now will it be, will it be
that time has brought the things we need
Track Name: This Time
You are growing older too
This time next year who'll be who
don't take away our closeness
I will remember you
This time next year,
you and I right here
