Track Name: Luck vs. Hope
The Face Song
I can tell the weight has lifted, your countenance has shifted
I can tell the mood has shifted, your countenance has lifted
lifted (x7)
There's the face, you're making the face,
I can see the face that you are making

Someone has stumbled on what has crumbled
Doesn't belong to you
Doesn't belong to you
I might enjoy you if we could get through
Ripping our hearts out
Ripping our hearts out
Overhead a dress a dim dim light
Are we wearing less, that's all right
All the walls are blank, 'cept one nail
Better walk the plank, just quick bail

Show me a tattoo, one you're still into
I will look at it
I will look at it
Do you know too much; solve for me
mysteries and such; what will be

Native Tendencies
I will fight the clouds I'll fight the sun
defeat relentless rainstorms
and when they come I will be ready
for those deadly waveforms

Why is the sky up so high
Why, why oh why, why can't I

I will knock the moon down with my mind because you gave it somewhere to land begin to dig a hole inside and feel the world expand
When the vallies rise and mountains fall beneath the operation of hands it's constant contact that manipulates these pulsing lands

Sound is around and it gets into me
Some I can feel it moves for real
On both sides, waving to me
This is the kind that pays no mind

Where is it found? up down and all around

You can only know if it's fast or slow
If you can see the frequency
If you think it's gone, stop and think again
Don't pretend you heard the end

Is it true that we fell through
tell me now what should I do
I can see why you withdrew
come on make my memories new

Some of us like to some of us don't
maybe i will maybe i won't

Seeing what I thought I saw
Maybe this cold heart will thaw
Was this shadow here before
Light shines right behind the door
