Track Name: Family
Savoring, savoring
The last good hour of common decency
Angry, robbery
Bruised all my knuckles when the salt it ceased to be
Overload of being home
Had to run away just to prove that it was wrong
Undersold, before you know
Stepping back in when you finally let it go

The price to fall downward when we spit knives
Is burnt by words that you keep inside
The price to fall downward when we spit knives
Is dwarfed by words that you keep inside

I came to see your dad
And asked if I could stay
He said, "Forget it, son.
You'd best be on your way"

The price to fall downward when we spit knives
Is dwarfed by words that you keep inside
The price to fall downward when we spit knives
Is dwarfed by words that you keep inside
Track Name: Unstable
Unstable, balanced on a cliff
My brother's guns hung at his hips
And though we both bleed out the same
If he falls, then half of me is to blame

When your little brother fell asleep
Some 1500 days ago
We took the road less traveled on
And said that we were going home

And I don't even know what's good for me
Track Name: Most of What I've Seen
You stood as a structure, when I sat on the ground
Everything that you discarded I eventually found
Your words were wounded and raw, ink bled through to their walls
Human nature broke your fingers 'til you couldn't hold on
Maybe it's home, a comfort I know
That makes me want to take the easiest way out
Or a guilty belief that my brother and me
Have got a porch outside the house where I'll eventually die

Most of what I've seen is a lie

I casted a shadow when I stepped in the light
A giant disfigured symbol content with being alive
But then the sun it went down, you hid inside of your house
Through the silence I concluded you would never come out
You're burning bridges for free, you asked no payment of me
A set of open ended questions swept under your feet
You were a mountain to climb, I left your mountain behind
With no trace of solidarity I made up my mind

Most of what I've seen is a lie
