Track Name: 35,000 Foot Postcard
He drank what they called medicine
For someone in his head
Obviously, it could be worse she said

He fixed up all the broken things
in a tiny little shed
He slept all day
Drank himself to death

His heart just couldn't take all that space
He had so much to give, so little left to take
And he went out to his favorite place and he sank

He made what he called medicine
in a back room by his bed
Honestly, you're better off they said

He tried to save his hideaway
by golfing with his Dad
Thankfully, he finally found a friend

Track Name: How To Disappear Completely
Shoving off to higher ground
to embrace the unknown
Turn down modern sounds
the hills will be our friends
Store bought tones (filtered cigarettes)
won't last just one weekend

Please teach me
How to disappear completely
from this world

Change my name without a clue
Become someone new
Hide inside or sell this life
Forget, move on, survive

Chorus X2
Track Name: Here To Stay
Sleep tight, without the morning bribery
I worry you're the company that I no longer keep
This place, missing all the broken trees
I feel like I'm just visiting

But I'm here to stay
I'm here to stay
and whose to say
that I'm here to stay
What's in my way
Right now, I'm here to stay

Please smile, your camera shutters in the breeze
I know that you're not listening
so disconnect the dream
Tonight, the silence could mean anything
I feel like I'm just visiting

Track Name: Park Ranger, Campus Wilson
High atop the mountain side
You can hear the ranger cry
Paper jets touch down, tonight
All alone just him inside
No one knows they don't ask why
No one knows they don't ask why

Don't ask why

Instrumental/Spacebum building

High atop the mountain side
The quiet town can't sleep tonight
Track Name: Welcome Back To The Sound
I missed ya so much
Tried to change my plans
Tried to understand
what would make most sense

I wasted money
on the wrong movements
and pre-owned instruments
that would never fit

Welcome back to the sound
It gets cold in the town
Welcome back to the sound
Track Name: High Five
You got a paper cut on your new
pair of shoes
And you're stompin' around cause
no one will listen to you
Everybody went away
cause tomorrow's not today

High Five
High Five
Nobody has to know
High Five

The hollow friends don't know
whatcha do
With the wild little payphones
they can't use
So you hide under your desk
folding papers like the rest
until they come

Track Name: Untitled #2
I drove you home
in my '94 Corolla
after you couldn't get a ride
out of the city that night

You said your friends left you
without your favorite coat
so I gave you mine
cause my AC was broke

Speeding down the 5
broken headlights in the night
I'm glad you're still alive
I'm glad you're still alive
