Track Name: Father's Table
Father, give me legs
I'm losing everything I got
These are things I never thought I'd do

Hide in your wine
Sitting at your father's table
You'll make something for yourself when you are able

He is blessed but I'm far from green
A truth can never be unseen
Track Name: Where to Step
I did my time I did my time
A little fear never hurt
I'd see you again my friend, but I won't

Where to step, where to step
Am I replenished?
You think I'm just cells
But I'm not

I'd show you my teeth, but they're the color of stone
Track Name: A Wreck
A wreck a wreck
I lead and I lie
It was wrong to ask the light to change
Red to green
I should have seen
I'll never learn

A wreck a wreck
What's that to who?
Summer's filled with them to do
I'll ask again
Until the end
But I'm never looking back for you

But if you want that which we sought
It's just a thought it's just a thought
Because a wreck a wreck is all you got
Know that worth keeping can't be caught

A wreck a wreck
You got it now
The number easier to dial
I'll ask again until the end
I'll never learn

If only I had stayed a while
Track Name: Prophet's Ear
You have the prophet's ear
You see what's not there, and those who don't care

Though I've been here before
Track Name: Let Me In
What are you looking for?
These are just words
Open your mouth
Let me in
And if no one else
The ground will have us all
I am not the sun in the window
Just a curtain on the wall
