Track Name: Shadows Counting Shadows
It's been a while
It's been a while
How've you been?
How have you been?

Shadows counting shadows
Spinning out
I see you in the mirror
I see you again
I see you again

Starting to unwind
Losing sense of time
This isn't a feeling
This is a friend
This is a friend

I only see you when no one's left around
(If you're hoping)

Why won't you realize
When you're down and out?
Why must you whisper
When you have to shout?
Why can't you remember
That you won't figure it out
Alone, alone, alone

I'm sure, I'm sure
That you'll come back around
When you're upside down
And you'll come back around

Who's gonna be there?
'Cause I won't
Who's gonna be there?
'Cause I'm not gonna

Who?
Track Name: Richard Stabone
I've got to let you know

I'm glad to know it's still possible
To spend another night erecting obstacles

When you're coming around
When the lights are down, the night's at an end
God damn, I know you'd go and do it again
God damn, I know you'll go and do it again

I'd like to take you and honor you
For finally finding someone else to fool

And I've got to let you know

Spun out and jumbled with all of you
Finally doing everything we'd said we'd do

When you're coming around
When you think you've found someone to call a friend
God knows you know you'd go and do it again
God knows I told you you'd do it again

I finally found a way to prove
Everything I gave, you'd finally lose
Track Name: Morning Light
And when she comes to me
She always comes alone
She stands in front of me
And stares out at the storm

I'm a windowpane
She can see through me
When it grows dark
She can see herself in me

Just because it doesn't make sense
It don't mean that it's wrong (it don't mean that it's wrong)
Just because I'm out of ideas
It don't mean that I'm dumb (it don't mean that I'm dumb)

And when she comes to me (she calls)
She always comes alone
I like when she's with me (she calls)
And I can smell the smoke

I'm a windowpane
She can see through me
When it gets light
She can see herself in me

Just because it doesn't make sense
It don't mean that it's wrong (it don't mean that it's wrong)
Just because I'm out of ideas
It don't mean that I'm dumb (it don't mean that I'm dumb)
Track Name: You Can't or You Won't
The trinkets left over from time
Dry your eyes
I'm telling you truth

I'm telling you something
These aren't words, these are keys
Down on your knees
I'll raise you still

I watch you get high
Because it's more fun to watch you fall
I want to watch you fall

All the king's horses and all of his men
Couldn't do nothin' so I didn't call them (all fall down)

(I try not to lift a hand.
I try not to lift anything.
In certain situations, you don't want to give any false movements.
Any anticipation, any inkling of what might come next.
But I'm pretty sure
We both know.)

Picture this
A plot with no twist
A mouth with no kiss
A heart with no risk

I love this stuff
'Cause it makes it more real
When you're too numb to feel
When you're too poor to steal from

A new amalgam to ponder
Eyes will wander
But you know
I know you know what it's like

All the king's horses and all of his men
Couldn't do nothin' so I didn't call them (all fall down)

(Do you remember what you said?)

You can't or you won't
You can't or you won't
