Track Name: Mountains
And I will die all alone
On a forty-eight, I will escape
This place I see, is not for me
I want a home, I can call my own

And I will die all alone
I don't need much, no, I don't need much

And I don't mind their prying eyes
Burning holes right through my life
This life I lead is fit for me
I don't need much, I'll die happy

I will die all alone
I don't need much, no, I don't need much

And I'll watch the time out, last life, outlast my eyes
And live with the mountains
Who have the strength to swallow you whole

And I'll watch the sky outlast life, outlast my eyes
And live with the dreams
That have the strength to swallow us whole
Track Name: Halifax
He set off with his lucky feet
He set off with a heart plagued with holes
He travelled, swam and ran
Looking for some semblance of a plan

His feet were sore from digging through all the mud
He headed east, fell in love and ditched his luck

No, he swore he didn't need it no more, he was home, he was Eastbound

I'm going home

That rabbit found a place to live in PEI
Quiet acres on the sea, and in the sky
He met a little bird, they built a house in the woods
Together they grew until the seasons changed for good

You'll never know, until you fly away, until you fly away, fly away for good
You'll never know, until you fly away, until you fly away, fly away from home

He swam across the Northumberland strait
He was headed for Halifax, to find a hole to hide away
And somewhere in that pit of his deepest despair
A silver fox was standing there

With a coat so sharp it cut through all the dark

You'll never know, until you fly away, until you fly away, fly away for good
You'll never know, until you fly away, until you fly away, well I'm Eastbound and home
Track Name: Stripes
I'll leave it all behind this time, familiar faces turn and hide
Don't say hello, I harbor everything that's terrible, you know
That it's ripe within scene, as we paint our perfect portraits
That depict the hypocrite that's underneath

And I'll be your friend
But only in secret, covert, can't get caught with your stripes in my den
You're better off dead, the wolves are out and they'll claw you out
Claw until you're dead

Close your eyes dear, the nightmares can't get worse than this

Patch my bones, with floss and wax and leather scraps from my hide
I'm running low, I can't keep up this pace is draining me alive
And I hoped that you would be there by my side

But not only in a secret, covert, you can't get caught with your stripes in my den
You're better off dead, the wolves are out, and they'll claw you out
Claw until you're dead

Close your eyes dear, the nightmares can't get worse than this
Track Name: Leaving
And I can't run away, my four paws stain the ground
The holes I dig to get away from them, to get away down wind
My coat's weak, my lungs are thin, I can't keep pace ahead of the wind
The foxes be joining me once the darkness sets in

And I'm afraid of nothing, oh I'm afraid of nothing
Let them feast, I'm already dead
I'm afraid of nothing, oh I'm afraid of nothing
Let them feast, I'm already dead

Face down and dying, there's nothing left for me
Track Name: Temporary Homes
Let the tarps fall off the temporary homes that we have made
In broken down bodies, watching hearts just pump the blood away
From every vein I thought brought us closer to the truth
Buried in the permafrost, we numb the pain, and fall in love

And they keep on tell me I'm wrong for falling
And they keep on telling me I've got to learn to move right on
They keep on telling me I'm wrong for falling in love
And they keep on telling me I've got to learn to move right on

We'll build our bridges skyward, hope to hell the drywall holds
All the drawings of forever seem to miss the studs and fall
Into nothing but isolating pink and squishy stuff
Made of tiny bits of shattered glass, well a broken windows not enough for me

And they keep on telling me I'm wrong for falling,
And they keep on telling me I've got to learn to move right on
They keep on telling me I'm wrong for falling in love
And I'll keep on telling them to eff right off
Track Name: Microwave Safe
Some people flow like water on the tiny hairs of an African Violet
And when I have a child, she'll grow up slow playing in the dirt and not on pavement
And if the day ever calls where I lose my bones, giving into a habit
I'll bite my lip, and with a drip of red I'll paint your perfect portrait

And it will be signed by my hand, scratched out by a man who envies time spent
Self reflecting on all the self destruction, all the stupid stuff I do
Just to try and understand my place is not ready made microwave safe
Why I try and comprehend why I'm so fixed and bent on making the same mistakes

Well slow as things may go
I still need to know

Because I don't know nothing no, and nothing don't know me either
I'm just holding it's hand, in hopes I understand now understand
I can't see through your eyes, but I can try
But it won't make any difference, no, it makes no difference

Because the day waists like paper air planes, in the morning
Falling wet 'cause it's been raining, it's pouring
And you always get what you decided to take
And it's been taking me, taking me, taking me too long

Well slow as things may go
I still need to know
