Track Name: Sinker
Reach out and touch the sky.
You don't know where you are until you try.
Until you go, you won't know:
that you could go all the way!

Yes you could go all the way, but you don't know:
yes, you could go all the way!

Step out on that limb:
you don't know if you'll sink or if you will start to swim,
and swim again, and again,
'cause you could go all the way!

Yes you could go all the way, but you don't know:
it's sink or swim, Sinker!
Track Name: Ladoga
Been making plans.
You know the ginseng didn't take
but we're fixing to plant a garden.
We built those walls ten feet tall.
You know we're gonna build a cabin.

When society does collapse,
you'll see people around in rags,
eating out of trash bags.
But you'll find me out in Ladoga:
splitting wood the way our forefathers would.

It's getting cold,
and Carl's not on the air to tell us
when winter's coming.
So we'll use our eyes:
keep 'em trained on the night skies
to tell the seasons.
Track Name: What We Don't Have
Crushing weight of atoms fuels my reason to live on.
Fusion lights a path for us, then moves on.
Born on an island in an astronomic sea:
it truly is a weight to be free.

We always seem to want what we don't deserve,
and in our eyes we see good things become more and more impure

Now I feel like I've been spinning circles all night.
But we know the way the Earth turns: creating black and white.
Lack of direction's got me feeling alright.
Like a leaf on the wind, I'll find my way on my flight.

So now I'm here closing my eyes
because the only things that bother me are mine, and my own.
So let's just go: we'll just run away
Track Name: What I Need
You've got what I need:
that peace that I can't find.
If you take a piece of me,
I'm sure that you will find:

That our bodies grow rings like trees
inside our consciousness, destructive yet serene.

Endeavor to persevere:
they say don't ever quit.
But I've heard it so many times,
can't get behind it.
Track Name: Night Song
Light burns slow the more that your friends go
and fade away: release their pain.
And we know why God made us so blind:
so we'll take and fight to find out what is right.

They're taking away the things we love,
and yeah, man, we know that life's tough.
So laugh it up!

Better make as much music as I can
before I lose ability to use my hands.
Cause yeah, we know the way things always go.
So we'll take it slow: as slow as we can go.
Track Name: Thanks Friends
To all the friends I've made:
I just feel like I've taken and never repaid.
So I just want to say "thanks" to my friends.
So I just want to say "thanks" to my friends.

You all knew I was an honest guy,
so how am I supposed to write these lyrics "not so dry"?
Feels like it's simply out of reach.
Feels like 10,000 steps up to the temple of the sky.
