Track Name: Medicine Man
I have found my medicine man
He can write as fast as I can run
These days he’s running low on prescriptions

And I have seen the skeleton man
He can ride as fast as I can run
These days he’s looking in my direction

Bound to your searching sound
Found by your searching sound

I have found my medicine man
He can write as fast as I can run
Someday he’s gonna lose my subscription

And I have seen the skeleton man
He can ride as fast as I can run
These days he’s staring through my reflection

Bound to your searching sound
Drowned by your searching sound

Medicine man you’re my medicine man
Track Name: Places I Know
Emptiness come take me home
I couldn’t stay with you alone
Subject of my mind’s control
An empty hand to make me whole

These places I go
Always to return to the places I know

Memories come chase me home
I couldn’t live through you alone
Subject of my mind’s control
An empty hand for me to hold

These places I go
Always to return to the places I know
Track Name: Curtains
Frozen like waves in motion
No hands move you today
The underworld is quiet now
All our statues remain
The underworld is quiet now

Broken like frames in motion
No hands hold you today
The underworld lies open now
Here the thaw comes again
The underworld lies open now
Track Name: Nothing More, Nothing Less
Lost in the summer of our medicine days
As red-eyed faces in pictures we made
Only reflections in a mirror that fade
And they're not the same thing as what we became

Take a look and see what's left
You could try
To put a window in my head
You might find
There's nothing more, there's nothing less

Lost in the numbers of tomorrow's parade
Between the traces of tides as they change
A missed connection to a new yesterday
And we wait for the same one to come around again

Take a look and see what's left
You could try
To count the voices in my head
You might find
There's nothing more, there's nothing less
Track Name: Pictures of the Country
We drew pictures of the country
We cut letters out of magazines
I was you and you were me
We became all we couldn't be

We painted sunsets in the classroom
The night unfolding on a silver sky
And said we're too young to die
By the light of the sunrise

Oh we played skip-bo in the game room
And sold our losses to the winning hand
And said chance must have a plan
For the fight of the losing man

And all our pictures of the country
And all those letters from the magazines
They were you and they were me
Lost in a memory
Track Name: Deep Sea Roller
Closed doors
To whitewashed and sunken shores
All yours
The ice and the ocean floor

You ride
The wheels of a stolen tide
Closed Eyes
We sleepwalk through paradise

Deep sea roller
Deep sea
Deep sea roller
Save me
Track Name: Sleepwalk
I thought I’d woken from your dream
Uncertain places in my head
There’s no waking all that’s taken
I’ll sleepwalk through your eyes instead

I thought I’d left some things behind
In some places I have known
Watching curtains still uncertain
I hope the tide won’t let you go
Track Name: New Pangaea
Well it’s goodbye to a new Pangaea
In sunken dreams I thought I’d been there
Each new divide receives the inland tide
Along fault lines

Across this new Pangaea

Oh listen to the bottom feeders
Who know the distance in between us
The deep seas rise and swallow us inside
As we divide

This new Pangaea

So it’s goodbye to a new Pangaea
In sunken dreams I thought I’d been there
