Track Name: Everyday Apostles
Rolling over
Rattled by love
And sinking futures
Sealed by hope

I walked and I walked
And I talked and I walked around

They seem so sure
It'll go their way
But I've been over
South of Green Bay

And I walked and I walked
And I talked and I walked around

It's too soon

Plastic seashells
Picture frames
Glowing doorbells
Light my way

And I walked and I walked
And I talked and I walked around

All these windows
In my way
I can't break them
Seeing through hate

I sulked and I walked
And I talked and I walked around

Oh they won't know
Oh they don't know
Track Name: Wind School
I heard about that
That wicked thing you did
It's alright
I'll forgive you in the wintertime

I've been around that
Since I was just a kid
So I learned
How to stay alive when bridges burn

I'm in a new class
Where I learn how to feel
What's in the wind
Now it's funny but it won't be when

It moves too fast
And you can't grab the wheel
You just wait
For the wind to show another way
Track Name: Elder Rage
Twin things
Are simpler than two
Rolled into one
And welded by truth
I can see you now

We sing
Like a moth to the light
Or warm-weather bread
Buttered by life
I can be you now


So I bring
My lips to the cup
Tilting my head
And holding it up
I might need you now

Then it seems
Like nothing is left
I remember the things
That you've always said
I believe you now

Track Name: Gold Tooth Kid
I'm into heavy metal
And wasted time
You never get it back
That's fine

Even when the lakes freeze
I cast a line
I let it down
I try

When you sleep
It's easy to
Learn how to let it go
What you need to
Now I can let it go
And it goes
