Track Name: FORGIVE::FORGET
I think I found what I was after
I'm a natural disaster
crashing into major cities
walking like a violent breeze

I found my home away from home
I've found nothing is quite my own
I've found the things I leave behind
always get back to me in time

I wonder if I'll ever miss this
but I'm not asking for forgiveness
I'm not trying to change my bet
I just wish we could all forget

what if all we ever wanted
was to finish what we started
I'm stuck at third you're running home
but I won't let my resentment show
and what if all these silly games
were our commandments all the same
and every day that we move forward
we're getting closer to starting over
Track Name: HIDING PLACES
show me the place you hide
when you're away
I'd like to stay there through the rain
and never come back out
won't you come back out

in your glass apartment
you throw stones
from your throne made of tiny plastic bones
and when the floor drops out
you're jumping town

if you can see right through me
won't you let me know
am I to get through this peacefully
or do I lose control

under sheets of rain
my heart expands
and joins my salivary gland
I spit it out
I spit it out

but I can't seem to expel
the vile taste
of waste I thought I could replace
but it's okay
at least for today
Track Name: I AM A GIANT
when I walk in through the door
everybody stares
so I hide out in the corner
but I hardly even fit there

do I frighten you my darling
do I make your heart feel small
you can't help what you are feeling
and I can't help that I'm this tall

for I am a giant and I will not be moved
I'll sit here through the winter or until my feet turn blue
yes I am a giant and though I may seem tame
my footprints create oceans where cities once have been

have you ever touched the mountain
with your feet firm on the ground
I can kick the dirt beneath me
as I call the angels out

I turn around to see
to see the wreckage I have caused
the trail of chaos left behind me
but nothing seems to be wrong

for I am a giant and I will not be moved
I'll sit here through the winter or until my feet turn blue
yes I am a giant and though I may seem tame
my footprints create oceans where cities once have been
Track Name: ALL I SAW WAS ME
I dreamed that I could walk on land
I dreamed that I had five fingers to my hand
I dreamed I only had two eyes to see
I dreamed I looked in the mirror and all I saw was me

I heard there was a secret chord
but upon asking further I didn't get a word
I heard that there are great mountains to climb
but I'm quite content knowing there are things I don't need to find

I saw with my very own eyes
I saw the ocean beginning to rise
I saw the key that fits in the door
but I tried it already and now I'm not so sure
Track Name: YR SADNESS IS BEAUTIFUL
I awoke from a dream
when I was only five
where I was a tall tree
off the Pacific coastline
my branches reached far
and covered with leaves
but I was not alone there
I had my friends all around me
and when I arrived there
at the age of eighteen
I climbed a tall tree
and I felt complete

a girl I met at school
taught me how to love
and she loved me too
and the city lights filled us
when I got back from New York
I found a beautiful home
two years later I left
and we were both so alone

now sometimes I feel lonely
sometimes I want to die
but when I look at the ocean
I remember why I love being alive

your sadness is beautiful
it lights up everything
your anger is deafening
and I want to scream

your sadness is beautiful
your sadness is beautiful
your sadness is beautiful
your sadness is beautiful
