Track Name: A High Wave
A High Wave
By Havilah Rand

It was a high wave
for a little just broken boat
it was a free fall
felt good if you didn't look

there was sunshine
and writing all over the sky
life is amazing
is a good day a good day to die

it was a see saw
up high now your hitting the ground
its to good to collide
love is a sweet invisible cloud

just for a minute
look me in the eye
tell me this is it
that its a good day a good day to die

(Bridge)
all the things we strive to be
let them go
all of us are free falling
to a voice soft and low
hold my hand and breathe
till we are taken by the undertow

it was a green light
all I could see was red
looking my over my shoulder
then shooting straight ahead

there was a mountain
and castles in the sky
there was no way of knowing
it was a good day a good day to die


Yeah there was sunshine and writing all over the sky
life is a amazing
its a good day a good day to die
Track Name: Nevermind
Nevermind
by Havilah Rand

you’ve got jealous eyes
your mouth is full of lies
you tell him to get that attention

you got a life so sad
but I don’t think you got it so bad
you got a forearm cross your chest every night

nevermind the sacrafice
nevermind the compromise
nevermind the sweetness you sour every time
lead him down a long dark road
let the numbness spread where your hands won’t go
I bet you don’t even feel it

well Im not the type to cross
I let it burn on the hill with the marys
I’ve walked a thousand miles in those very same shoes

nevermind my head so high
nevermind I don’t got the time
nevermind your selfish pride is where i draw the line

follow the long black hole to your own heart
it’s so far
the only way to the love is to give and to give and to give
Track Name: Casual
Casual
By Havilah Rand

You're my fixed up heart
Waiting to break
You're all of my time
That waiting on you will take
You're the promise in the morning
You never should have made
You're the casual how you been
That I just can't fake

You're the willow weeping
All over the lawn
You're the bottom of the bottle
That I reached at dawn
You're the fairy tale ending two silhouettes on the sunset
You're the one true love
I haven't met yet

Chorus
And I wish I may
I wish I might
But those stars are all shifting
I can't keep them in sight
Our love is drifting
Above the shade
And somewhere high above the clouds
It'll finally fade

You're the butterfly sleepin
In a dried up cocoon
You're the faraway echo of a howlin at the moon
You can kiss me this once
And then I'll be gone
Cuz you'll never live up
To me singin this song

Chorus

You're my fixed up heart
You're all of my time
You're the promise in the mornin
You're the casual how you been
You're the casual how you been
You're the casual how you been
That I just can't fake
Track Name: Crazy Alone
CRAZY ALONE
by Havilah Rand

Left my shoes by the door
tiptoe cross the floor
even though there's nobody nobody home
and I talk to myself say my own name right out loud
i've got company even when I'm all alone

(CHORUS)
call me crazy and I might just prove you right
dont undermine the strange in my eyes
it'll keep you guessin all day
and runnin for the rest of your life

left my hand in the air waving to your backheaded stare
and I know that you wont turn around
all the words in my throat are the sweetest small birds
they will cry without making a sound..

(CHORUS)

If you could look in my heart shine a light through that dark
you'd see a flame just waiting on a spark
if could look through my eyes and climb through my skin
you'd feel all of the beautiful that I've ever been

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Telephone Pole
Telephone Pole
by Havilah Rand

All I need now is a great big push
get me off this big strong pull
go back to the places
I left bits of my soul
scattered like letters on a telephone pole

But we lie
I love you
We lie
pretend that it's not true
oh we lie lie lie lie
yeah you do

I can' feel my heart beat so I step down hard
rubber souls and concrete
have taken me this far
Everybodys talkin about trading each others places
no ones ever satisfied when you got too many choices

Chorus

Don't ask for forgiveness
just go your own way
everybodys broken im their own beautiful way
I'm so tired of talkin Im exhausted with desire
Its the rain that makes my fire grow
higher and higher
Track Name: Cape Cod
CAPE COD
by Havilah Rand

I was high
In the gray morning light
waiting for the flash of green
to go by

It was two teens
and a baby in between
more love in that lifeguard chair
than blue in the sky

(CHORUS)
carry me away
when the tides finally turn let me stay
When I die my spirit will wander
the shores of Cape Cod in the summer


I was high
first love in the moonlight
a dangerous boy and his bike
took me for a bittersweet ride

left at sunrise
twenty more years in my eyes
givin it up givin it up given it up
one more time

(CHORUS)

I was given it up given it up
givin it up givin it up
one more time

I was wise
highway dusted and wild
waiting for lightening and hail
to subside

(CHORUS)
Track Name: Piel
PIEL
by Havilah Rand

Dark of the sky
Grit of the sand
beautiful night
All my skin in your hand

I seek light in the darkest cave
I look for horizons beneath the waves

I don't care anymore
drop it out of the door of a plane
take off your shoes
get on this train

I found home in a foreign land
A final arrival for a minute I understand
you build it up
just to burn it down
you fly so high
then you bury it under the ground

I don't care anymore
drop it out of the door of a plane
take off your shoes
get on this train

I don't care anymore
drop it out of the door of a plane
take off your shoes
get on this train

Dark of the sky
Grit of the sand
beautiful night
All my skin in your hand

don't care anymore
drop it out of the door of a plane
take off your shoes
get on this train
Track Name: Lighthouse
LIGHTHOUSE
by Havilah Rand

How many days in the desert
Before you die of thirst
How low can you go before you call it the worst
Are we almost there or is it another mirage
I don't care it keeps my walking anyway

Its almost like heaven
imagining you here
I could open my eyes and wake up
but I don't dare
I watch the boxcar
Another escape passes me by and by and by

There's a lighthouse in the middle of the sea
scatter the ashes of dead but I think its the living who are dying to be free

Its the push of the needle head bangin on the wall
just another step you finally let yourself fall
I think its gonna take a little love a little time and we will fly

There's a lighthouse in the middle of the sea
scatter the ashes of dead but I think its the living who are dying to be free

bygones are bygones let them go their way
pull yourself up by the bootstrap we'll be on our way
the time is at hand, the moment is now
don't feel the love I just the pain I keep walking anyways
when I don't feel the love I keep walking anyway
Track Name: Petrified
Petrified
by Havilah Rand

Far away
there's a road
we walk down every night
to the store
on the corner
buy our sweets and say hello
to the man from the far away land
he speaks in tongues and laughs as we pound the bottles down

all alone
in a pile
I gathered the whole day
more alive than i've ever felt before
This is the smell I remember
take me to an orange day and a boy
from a far away land he speaks in tongues and laughs as we pound the bottle down

I'm petrifed
all these stories burned inside
petrified
all I see is you
in this life

east 9th street
alphabet side of the city
I wander a little too close to the other side
and the man from the far away land
they speak in tongues I swear they'd pull their guns
if I should ever run into danger

I'm petrifed
all these stories burned inside
petrified
all I see is you
in this life
Track Name: To Be Seen
To Be Seen
By Havilah Rand

Fires are raging and storms are moving in
couldn't stand another day I'm on the road again
End times chase us down every century
good times are far behind seems like the hard times never leave

My heart is aching to the marrow of bones
all I ever wanted was to find my way back home
fly away to the mountains and roll down thru the valley
am I running away or am I finally free

I can hear you calling across the burning sea
I can feel you watch me the way I've always wanted to be seen
I can you hear you singing me all the way back to the beginning

there is something crawling in the bottom of my soul
digging deep don't seem to get me anything but all alone
your eyes land in mine and there is nowhere to hide
take me in show me the way to the other side

I can hear you calling across the burning sea
I can feel you watch me the way I've always wanted to be seen
I can you hear you singing me all the way back to the beginning
(end with B part rising and repeating..)
