Track Name: Vines and Mini-Blinds
All those things that we're scared find
that burn in our eyes
I held them open like the window blinds
that hide the outside

Of me
and all those things that make me feel lonely
I'm tired of all those things that keep putting me away

Maybe in the morning I'll be brave and climb
the stairs or the blinds
I'll reach up and grab them and hold them tight
Even though I'm scared

Of heights
and all the things that make me feel alive
I'm scared of all the things that are keeping me alive

Now I know those things that flee in the morning
Now my eyes are tuned to their color and their shape
Now I have purpose for the pressing and the panting
And I can feel the heart that's chasing after me
Track Name: House on Fire
I watch you from far away
though my ear is pressed
I can't hear what you say
I just see you fall away
and though I'm screaming,
you can't hear a thing I say

She's caught in a house on fire
and the smoke it billows like the liar
that touched and hurt and broke his wife and kids
She's running out again
to another boy who's just like him
with beady eyes and filth caught in his grin

Now I look back on yesterday
and my smile is scarred by the things I didn't say
All that life won't just pass away
it sneaks and lingers into the wake of each day

She's caught in a house on fire
and the smoke it billows like the liar
that touched and hurt and broke his wife and kids
She's running out again
to another boy who's just like him
with beady eyes and filth caught in his grin

The stars frame her silhouette as she looks down
She begs me to rescue her from this town
Track Name: Grey Town (brentwood demo)
We watched Grey Town pass by our window
and rolled until our memory left its view
We found a way to set our eyes upon horizons
and held them open until sunlight met our view

We moved along to the rhythm of a song
Playing games in our mind about the way we spend time
Chasing day and weeks and memories between the black and white lines
Lost in Grey Town

We act like this is based on contribution
like love was something I could ever give to you
But life is never needed its offered
and offered even more when we're through
