Track Name: Apple Pie
"Warm fuzzies for everyone!"

think big, think of something man
everybody else gettin' their plans
it doesn't just fall in your hands
but it could... who am i to say?
spread thin like butter on bread
just like old Bilbo said
see the peaks before you're dead
i should... but who am i to say?

i don't have a clue
about what i'm gonna do
if i ever get out of this black hole
i chased my heart into
but i like apple pie
for the first time in my life
my tastes are changin'
or am i losin' my mind?

think small, think of nothing at all
everybody else actin' so tall
keepin' everything to myself
i should... but who am i to say?
beat down my Sephiroths
Big Daddies and Necromorphs
instead of lyin' on the floor
i should... but i don't want a war

all across the sunlit ground
broken branches pilin'
from all the times we said we knew
when we were only lyin'
we are not always right
we are not half the time
this age of nobody to blame
light it up, watch the smoke for miles
Track Name: View From the Black Lake
oh, i was dyin' inside that cupboard
under that staircase, under those strangers' footsteps
i was a slave, a slave to hate
a slave to the thought that i could never create

now we're in boats out on the water
sisters and brothers, a family armada
for the very first time i can leave all the lies
i can not feel alone, cause i'm comin' home

oh, all i've known
my whole life i've been searchin' for home

look up on the hill, look at the shadow and firelight
don't be afraid of all that waits inside
cause we've all come to this moment
when we could be a part of somethin'
somethin' that's bigger than all the nothings we've let in

so put that hat on our heads
let us watch our lives begin
Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, please not Slytherin
hear them cheer, hear them roar
runnin' into open arms
Track Name: Honey in the Wood
forget you if i could
you’re the punctuation in my mind’s book
honey in the wood
glowin' in the warm sunshine
funny how i could leave it all behind
if i knew your heart was as ready as mine

droolin’ on the page
blurrin’ all the words i’m supposed to read next
daydreamin’ mind
draggin' me around, makin’ a mess
skatin' on the ice i’ve made with my tears
that i froze with my fears

don’t it hurt? don’t it hurt so bad?
don’t it hurt?
don’t it hurt so bad it’s drivin' you mad?
you can’t go to bed, without feelin’ dead

tryin’ to be smart
been workin’ on my heart
tryin’ to take care
breathin’ in the air
puttin’ in the time
walkin’ that line
oh, it leads me to where i can kiss your smile

but don’t it work
don’t it work in the end
don’t it work
don’t it work in the end

like Something’s holdin’ the strings
turnin’ the wheels
growin’ the fields
like Someone’s guiding her hand
into my hand
organic and planned
and it hurts so bad
so i can see all the good i’ve had
and it takes so long
so i can see all the places i went wrong
and it hurts so bad
so i can sing a song
yeah, it hurts so bad
so i can sing a song
and it hurts so bad
so bad

and i can go to bed
without feelin’ so dead
and i can wake up
and start it all again
Track Name: Lionheart
Narrator:
honey's got her suitcase
she's goin' to the city
saw it on a webpage
stuck inside her mind for days and days
pickin' up some more shifts
workin' hard, dreamin' carefully
checkin' tickets for the train ride
you know you want it bad when you take the time to do it right

Honey:
hey, momma, i'm sorry i couldn't stay
but i'll be back someday
try not to worry while i'm away

Honey, Sucker, and Narrator:
cause we're all birds that can't be caged

Sucker's got a bouquet
flowers that he picked out, one by one
drivin' in the fast lane
a lion for a heart that's never been tamed
Sucker's at the front door
momma breaks the news that cracks the whip
the lionheart is breaking
the reckless passion leakin' from his hate

Honey:
hey, Sucker, i'm sorry i couldn't stay
but i'll be back someday

Sucker:
i may never roar the same way
now that i've been tamed

Sucker and Narrator:
she broke our heart, she forgot our name
she said that she had felt the same
and without a word she went away

Honey, Sucker, and Narrator:
cause we're all birds that can't be caged

Narrator:
well i feel caged
cause i can't trust
this sweet girl
could spill my guts
and skip away
singing "Oh, sunny day!"
i'm not here
i'm apart
from the lion
in my heart
the passion's gone
i'm not in love with anyone
Track Name: Soon
all that time i spent
clawin' at the ground
time buried you down
i’ll come back for you

i’ll come back for you
i'll come back for you
my heart is torn in two
i’ll come back for you soon

all that wasted love
i should have cast above
time has let me down
i’m too tired to see
signals shot at me
i don’t mean any harm
but let go of my arm

i’ll come back for you
i’ll come back for you
my heart is torn in two
i’ll come back for you
i’ll come back for you
i need to take a few
but i’ll come back for you soon
Track Name: Nightmare, For Now
come on down from that tree
i’ll catch you if you’d let me
i’d go up with you, honey
but i’m afraid of heights
i’ll go up anyway
just wanna kiss your pretty face
even though i’m shakin’, honey
i’m quite all right

i’m just pretending, i am
scared outta my mind
i know this ain’t that high but
baby, i can’t fly
i'm gonna fall and die
i count the reasons why
i let you make me lose my mind

come on, man, let her go
you ain’t like her, she ain’t like you
even though i miss you, honey
i’m better off alone

i’m just pretending, i am
scared outta my mind
i know it ain’t been long but
baby, i can’t fly
i'm gonna fall and die
i count the reasons why
i let you make me lose my mind

oh, you make me lose my mind
you make me lose my mind
cause i ain’t got no spine
you make me lose my mind
you drive me up the wall
and you don’t even call
cause i ain’t got no spine
cause i ain’t got no spine
take everything that’s mine
cause i ain’t got no spine

wake on up
from your sleep
dry your head
it was just a bad dream
Track Name: Lady Adventure
warm night under the dark blankets
cold outside, takin’ its time
icicle shrines for the frozen moments
we watched slip by in the warm sun
the time will come again
for now we keep it in
for now we keep it

all inside, clawin’ at the gates
invisible stakes, intangible face
i can’t see, but i imagine the sight
pink nose, pearly whites
snow hat too big of size

face in the snow
melting it all
laughter so tall
i can see it for miles
lighthouse on the shore
red flares in the air
diamond in the dirt
won’t let go of my shirt
you hold me so tight
in the cold of the night
it ain’t a great story
but to us it’s all right
and the seasons they change
they bring us back here
planning all of the things
we’re gonna do next year
but we can’t do them now
cause it’s freezin’ cold
never stopped us as kids
but we’ve gotten too old
now we do what we're told
we quit searchin’ for gold
cause these bills comin’ in
ain’t gonna pay themselves
but she’s waiting out there
to run her fingers through your hair
she’s waiting out there
in cold nights she is waiting
in meet and greets she is waiting
in quiet card games she is waiting
in confessional friends she is waiting
in snowball fights she is waiting
in a lover’s embrace she is waiting
in a stranger’s stare she is waiting
in a Book about love she is waiting
in the depths of your heart she is waiting
Track Name: Being Scared Part 3
oh, that great hole
i fell in
‘bout last my soul
oh, i’ve been climbin’
seems for years
but my heart keeps pumpin’
oh, that diamond ring
so far off
from everything
but oh, that rustlin' forest
i find my shade
under the lotus

in a couple of years, i’ll see
everything will change
except Your love remains the same

oh, that fiery dragon
scared me half to death
‘bout lost my wagon
oh, that shinin' angel
cut off its head
brought peace again
oh, anticipation
wastin’ time
with expectations
oh, sad apathy
take your leave
don’t get the best of me

sometimes i wish could
fast forward to the end
or at the very least
forget the fear began
just take it day by day
ride each roarin’ wave
back to the shore
there will be more

oh, that dark valley
orcs and beasts
and monsters howling
oh, that straight and narrow
gives me chills
deep in my marrow
oh, boy carry on
shut your mouth
and get along
oh, boy carry on
just keep quiet
and get along
Track Name: Under the Sun
you are the most beautiful thing i have ever seen
you make my legs shake, my arms hang, my chest ache

all the things i thought i knew i forget when i’m looking at you
here under the sun

your mouth makes beautiful sounds, breaks the wall down
your heartbeat makes me wanna dance, take every chance

all the things that make me warm are multiplied in your eyes
all the pain i’ve kept so long, falls apart in your song
all the things i thought i knew i forget when i’m looking at you
here under the sun

is this unhealthy? is this folly?
or is this the beauty that was made for me to hold?
is it wrong that it makes me strong?
that it takes me to the place i feel i’ve always belonged?
that work and food and money and approval
are calmed down by the magical sound
that sings from her mouth
when she’s talkin’ to me
it ain’t here, yet
but man, it’s getting’ here fast
won’t stab me in the back
won’t laugh when i fall
won’t kick when i crawl
won’t run when i call
i can hear it now
i can almost make it out
“I love you.” it’s the only one that counts
it’s the only one that counts
after all this time, it’s the only one that counts
every punch that i’ve taken
every action i’ve failed in
every rejection, every heart pollution
every fake solution
it all melts away under the sun
it all melts away under the Son

you are the most beautiful thing i have ever seen
you want, you want me more than i could ever dream of
Track Name: Warm Fuzzies
come along with me into my warm fuzzies
let me show you all the things that make me cry
and laugh and dance and sigh and glance and run and jump for joy
cause deep inside the man i am, i’ll always be a little boy

who’s that girl? she’s given me some warm fuzzies
that blue sky, all day, all night, is always a painting
what’s that blood that’s washin' all my evil away?
stay a little longer, i’ll think of more warm fuzzies to say
Track Name: Christmas With You
all the way back home
i thought about the girl i don’t know
is it cold where she’s from?
i guess one day i’ll know

as the sun fades to white
as the white fades to night
dark and gray, warm holiday
my Christmas will be with You

25, barely alive
hangin' by a thread
of Your grace, dangle in place
out of reach from death

as the sun fades to white
as the white fades to night
dark and gray, warm holiday
my Christmas will be with You

lyin' in the front yard
in a mound of snow
watchin' flakes fall on my face
i guess one day she’ll know

as the sun fades to white
as the white fades to night
dark and gray, warm holiday
my Christmas will be with You

("Soon" Reprise)
all that time i spent
clawin' at the ground
time buried you down
i'll come back for you
all that wasted love
i should have cast above
time has let me down
i'll come back from you
somehow

"Thank you for listening!"
