Track Name: Braver
Fingers crossed in holding hands
Big sky, heroes, a burning brand

Oh, you at my side
Hard sell, brace us

I cannot take this anymore
I am not what you want me for

Dry eyes, a deep glass, a quiet rage
Violence is nice when you have no place

Oh, you prince of pride
You have me, you hate me and

I cannot take this anymore
I am not what you want me for

I have no weight, have no weight

I’ve seen ships sink
Thousands!
Leagues deep

Helen, you’re braver than you think

And I have no weight, have no weight
Track Name: Blue
I need you to hold me
Cause I’m not steady
Tired and weary
From running away from you

I need you to call me
I need you to hear me
My pieces are breaking
My edges are fraying

And, ooo, I’m blue
Like a lady I saw
On the cover of a record

I need you to see me
And see where I’m standing
It’s where I’ll be falling
Cause I’m bleeding, I’m bleeding

And, ooo, I’m blue
Like a lady I saw
On the cover of a record

I need you to kiss me
Or hit me
Cause I’m not feeling
I’m numb and I’m reeling

And, ooo, I’m blue
Like a lady I saw, like a lady I saw

And, ooo, I’m so blue, I’m so blue,
For you, for you

And ooo, I’m blue
Like a lady I saw
On the cover of a record
Track Name: The Hunt
I’ve been hurt by you
I’ve been left by you
I’ve been loved by you
Your tenderest hands
Your tenderest hands

What more could I do
Than break my arm and lie for you
Swallow every word you spoke
Til I believed they were my own
Til I believed they were my own

And is this what makes you a man?
To take me in and let me stand
Then cut me down so you can hunt
You’re just a preacher with a gun
You’re just a preacher with a gun

And I’ve been hurt by you
And I’ve been left by you
And I’ve been loved by you
Your tenderest hands
Your tenderest hands
Your tenderest hands
Your tenderest hands

(Is this what makes you a man?)

Your tenderest hands
Track Name: Used To It
Who put this space between us?
A question I’ve often thought
And how slow the distance has come
It’s like we’re getting nowhere at all

And it’ll get weirder
Moving forward
It’ll get weirder
Til we’re used to it

What good is heaven above?
It’s given no comfort at all
Cause if I am not wrapped in your love
It’s a cold, cold, cold night that will fall

And it’ll get weirder
Moving forward
It’ll get weirder
Til we’re used to it

What point is falling apart?
If it ends in pieces, why ever start?
And being young is no excuse anymore
Cause fighting dirty won’t get us as far as before

And it’ll get weirder
Moving forward
It’ll get weirder
Til we’re used to it

And as we get older
And this goes on longer
It’ll get weirder
But we’ll get stronger

So come on closer
Fear no reaper
It’ll get weirder
We'll get used to it
Track Name: Wet Lungs
Please cast off your crown
Lay your fancy feelings down
I care, I care, I do, but not now
Please cast off your crown

Please tend these woods
They are cold and I am freezing and I’d clear them if I could
I’m here, I’m here, I am, but I’m not good
Please tend these woods

And I don’t need moonlight to tell me it’s evening
And I don’t need wet lungs to know that I’m sinking
And I could use help from you
But how can I ask you to
Climb so far down

Please know it’s no grave
But I dig a little deeper when you tell me you won’t stay
I’ll make it, I’ll make it, I will, but not today
Please know it’s no grave

And I don’t need moonlight to tell me it’s evening
And I don’t need wet lungs to know that I’m sinking
And I could use help from you
But how can I ask you to
Climb so far down

And I don’t need moonlight to tell me it’s evening
And I don’t need wet lungs to know that I’m sinking
And I could use help from you
But how can I ask you to
Climb so far down

Wait, please wait
I can feel something bad taking your place

Wait, please wait
I can feel something bad taking your place

Wait, please wait

Wait, please wait
