Track Name: Birds On Her Arm
Thought I learned to avoid your love
With the absence of a brace
But nothing seems to change

Gave my time to another one
But no one can share your grade
So nothing seems to change

Glued my eyes to an end of the way you talk
Paved an outline of your problems with phonetic chalk

Honestly
Impossibly
You are on my mind

Girl, there's little you have done
To earn my confession:
You are on my mind

Still alive, you divided into something new
Something beautiful, inscrutable, but still abused...

Girl, I want you here, I want to hear you sing
I am still obsessed with trying to set you free
Caged up with the ones who want to clip your wings
Girl, I want you here, I want to hear you sing

Are you sure you want to do something you've done before?
Some of us are waiting for your voice to soar
Offering a hand so you can skip the floor
Don't say you want to do something you've done before

Spent your years packing fears into a criminal's car
Fought your mirrors and appeared to have your life in a jar
Girl, I hope when you're ready you'll accept who you are:
A child of God with birds on her arm...

She held our hands by a lonely campfire
She howled at the moon

She held our hands by a lonely campfire
As she howled at the moon
(Now this is the question: am I still in love?)
Track Name: Ecumenism
Blind, marching towards the edge of the ground
Is anybody looking around?
While angels prepare the trumpets to sound
Is anybody looking around?

Oh Indifference,
What have you done to Her kids?
Oh, you sealed lips when words were missed in all of this

So many fall into the error of errors

While the signs are getting clearer, no one fights for the crown
Is anybody looking around?
On the edge, the hem of the approaching cloud
Is anybody looking around?

So many fall into the error of errors

And if all I've known is doubt
"What was lost cannot be found,"
said no one...

And if truth has been proclaimed
What was once cannot be changed...

Enough
The few ask if they want to see
And we could catch the news
We can if we want to see

It's all at hand, it's all hand
Nothing is what it seems
We cannot confuse the signs and what they mean
How can I confuse "Ask and you shall receive"?

We should ask
Track Name: Who Are You
We say,
"Who are you to break me down to pieces?
And who am I to say that I don't need it?

Oh, I don't know that I'm trapped in a box
It's simple, i don't that I'm trapped in a box
Tell me, who are you to break me down to pieces?"

Who's taking care of my soul?
(I don't even want to beg)
Am I the only in control
When I fall down?

If I don't go, please don't stay
Please don't change, please don't say "I'm lonely."

We say,
"Who are you to break me down to pieces?
And who am I to say that I don't need it?

Oh, I don't know that I'm trapped in a box
It's simple, i don't know that I'm trapped in a box
Tell me, who are you to bring me down to pieces?"

Who's taking care of my soul?
(I don't even want to beg)
Am I the only in control
When I fall down?

If I don't go, please don't stay
Please don't change, please don't say "I'm lonely."

Now you should know that I'm trapped in a box
Now you should know that I'm trapped in a box
Saying, "Who are you to bring me down to pieces?
Who am I to say that I don't need it?"
Track Name: Social Network
A new kind of tension
Interconnected
Breathe in the questions
Let out the next one

Who's in this page that I'm now displaying?
Who is this stranger
I'm now debating?

Who is this stranger I'm now portraying?
Who is the audience I'm now persuading
To misbelieve that I'm not escaping
From the need to know how I am graded?

Do you want to see what I've created?
Or do you want to see how I'm not hated?
Compare me to one of your friends, and we'll weigh out the trends,
which one of us is better rated

Even though this picture might be outdated
And even though my stories might be inflated
As long as attention is mine, we're friends online, though we've never communicated

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world

"Click 'accept'
You'll make friends,"
So it says
In my head

It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget

Find my home
In my phone
Spread my name
'Til I'm known

I'm surrounded but I still feel alone

A new kind of tension
Interconnected
Breathe what's expected
Breathe what's elected

This is the point where we are reflected
Where everyone learns what we have projected

Everyone learns what we've not perfected
Everyone learns if we've been dejected
Everyone learns what we have infected
This is what is it, but can it be corrected?

Is this what we are, a movie directed?
We act who we are - a facial expression
Write out a note, and tag who we know, proclaim what we show and still feel neglected

Is it perverse, or is it suspected?
Can you perceive that I am affected?
I care too much for strangers' opinions, but if it's my goal, should I be conflicted?

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world

"Click 'accept'
You'll make friends,"
So it says
In my head

It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget

Find my home
In my phone
Spread my name
'Til I'm known

I'm surrounded but I still feel alone

Everyone around the world

Soon, I'll be friends with everyone around the world
(It doesn't matter if they're somebody that I'll forget)
