Track Name: Portraiture
So solo on please honey
I've tried playing for money, and I'll tell you it aint worth it
When in the end in the mirror
It's the face of a stranger staring back with your eyes, it'll be a surprise
Though it shouldn't

So play on please honey
The food of love and I'm hungry
I've got thirty white soldiers, all starving for battle
They won't shake, quake not a rattle

Like this portrait I've tried
A thousand times to draw
It's perfect in my mind
Every detail, every flaw
From the structure of her chin
To the chip on her shoulder
Once I've got this drawing down
I can grow older, I can grow older

I'll chisel you out from the onyx
Let your stone case fall away
Until each curve is true and honest
And your shape's in proper frame
When only beauty remains
That when I'll abstain
And give you a name

Like this portrait I've tried
A thousand times to draw
It's perfect in my mind
Every detail, every flaw
From the structure of her chin
To the chip on her shoulder
Once I've got this drawing down
I can grow older, I can grow older

The small of your eye
And that green that we share
I'm starting to think
We've come unprepared

'Cause day after day
My sleeve's on layaway

Like this portrait I've tried
A thousand times to draw
It's perfect in my mind
Every detail, every flaw
From the structure of her chin
To the chip on her shoulder
Once I've got this drawing down
I can grow older, I can grow older
Track Name: Ink & Paper
Walk inside change your mind if you want to
I'll craft some phrase something you'd like if you want to

Take your time girl, breathe
Bat an eye, crack a smile, flash a grin let's break bread
And just jump in

Be surprised
I'll take a whirlwind right to you baby
Please tread light
Your wand'ring in my ink & paper heart, baby

Bleed your pen on paper
Fold a crane, write a name
Send it round the river bend
Through my valves, we'll speak in rounds

Be surprised
I'll take a whirlwind right to you baby
Please tread light
Your wand'ring in my ink & paper heart, baby

Be surprised
I'll take a whirlwind right to you baby
Please tread light
Your wand'ring in my ink & paper heart, baby
Track Name: Prime
If only peace came back to me
It's written in my sides
We could write a symphony
But she's long gone to hide

If only strings would never break
I'd be strung out alive
Like heart gut string, it's hard to fake
Betraying raw insides

If I had made the blind mistake
Believing my own mind
I'd have to give my youth the blame
To fall for some girls eyes

Oh blue eyes
Cold as ice
It's my prime
Gun's in sight
I'm alive
Not for long
I'm a ticking time bomb

Slowly pieces fall from me
To take up some sad song
Like blended cattle bread to be
The swords between her palms

If I had made the blind mistake
Believing my own mind
I'd have to give my youth the blame
To fall for some girls eyes

Oh blue eyes
Cold as ice
It's my prime
Gun's in sight
I'm alive
Not for long
I'm a ticking time bomb

Can you hear me?
Can you see me where I stand?
When the void feels like home
You know you're alone

I'm sorry if I'm sized too small
I'm just sick and tired of this constant thrall
