Track Name: Child (What I Know)
Haunted by the old ghosts again
Loaded down with secrets I don't understand.
Strip down to get the center of the plan.
If you got some now then hold up your hand.

You know – what I know.
You know – what I know.

Talk slow 'cause you're not so smart,
The only thing that you know is your own heart.
Keeps you - keep you in the house,
Shout out loud if you're ever getting out.

You know - what I know.
Track Name: Be Brave (I'm Not Alone)
Chapped lips,
Cheap steam,
I remember,
Everything.
Hot car,
Bright sun,
Get me out.
Where I'm from.

I'm coming home,
Be back at ten,
I'm not afraid,
See you again,
If I break,
It's not from you,
Your power's done,
What you gonna do?

I'm not alone when you're tearing at the moment,
I'm not alone while you're spitting at the sun,
I'm not alone if you follow me where I go,
And I'm telling everyone,
I'm not alone.

Hot lips -
Remember when,
I made your hair,
Stand up on end?
Hold hands,
Don't second guess.
But we both know,
There's nothing left.

The power's out,
From a summer storm,
It's on your lips,
Want to ask me some more.
Whole days,
Stare at the TV,
Cause I'm scared of you,
And you're scared of me.

[chorus]

I've been waiting for a big hole to bust in the ground.

[chorus]
Track Name: Brighten Up
So keep me close -
to you,
Don't cut me off -
when I'm what you should get through,
And brighten up.
Open the doors and windows,
Let the air on through.
When I'm gone there's nothing but you.

Keep your love alive,
Even when all you know's darkness,
Keep your looking bright,
When the dullness meets sharpness,
I wanna feel your heart beat,
Next to mine when I sleep,
Can't you give that to me,
Even when it's not easy?

When I left you said you'd do it alright,
I came back it seems you're doing just fine,
Yeah, I hoped maybe you'd need me again,
But I'll tell you like I told you back then.
Brighten up.
Track Name: She is a Shaker
I got some marks on my neck,
And my lower lip - no I can't forget,
How she used to lace her,
Finger phasers.

The girl with thirty-nine wrecks,
Traffic tickets and wild sex,
She's a violator,
Perpetrator.

Don't go dancin' there with someone that you don't know,
If you can't find her then maybe you should go home.
She is a shaker and I know one thing,
She is a shaker and I know one thing,
She is a shaker but I won't be the last one dancing.

She's loose-lipped to a fault,
Filters knocked out like the Berlin wall,
Or there's something in her,
Makes her a sinner.

She's got the clap and the blues,
Got no boyfriend but lots of shoes,
At least since I left her,
Long last December.

Don't go dancin' there with someone that you don't know,
If you can't find her then maybe you should go home.
She is a shaker and I know one thing,
She is a shaker and I know one thing,
She is a shaker but I won't be the last one dancing.
Track Name: Chameleon
I hurt myself when I met you.
So confused by what you do.
This didn't sneak its way through.
I thought you clean - you always knew.

I can't believe what you did to me.
A million.
Chameleon.

I hurt myself when I met you.
Just two kids drowned in a swimming pool.
The sun still shines and the birds still sing.
But you won't tell me anything.

I can't believe what you did to me.
A million.
Chameleon.

If there's a way to take it back,
I'd never take the second chance,
If there's a way to make it new,
I'd just stay away from you.

I can't believe what you did to me.
A million.
Chameleon.
Track Name: Sorry, Bird
I'm stressed like a bird,
Who finally found the window,
That he wanted to fly into,
It's you - it's absurd.
'Cause you're only half-cocked.
And I'm totally dumbfounded.

And I'm sorry if I ever implied,
This was anything it wasn't,
And I - was - you.
I'm sorry.

I'm raw like the skin,
On the bottoms of your feet,
After you succeeded running away,
Today - is the first time that I've ever
Seen the sun and moon,
In whole different ways.

I'm sorry if I ever implied,
This was anything it wasn't,
And I - was - you.
I'm sorry.
