Laughter 03:51
It is cold, please don't stay If you know then go away Despite the light, you can't stay So go away and see the room From another day Look up, look out We are here in the shadow of your doubt We see your face involved in grace There is a plan for this plane to land Laughter is all that we are after After the laughter brought us here We'll sing to the rafters of laughter You made us warm Under doors, behind the trees Morning walks with a million me's The angels tried to go inside Only asking why you hide Look up, look out We are here in the shadow of your doubt The gold is old but it's still gold There is a plan for this plane to land Laughter is all that we are after After the laughter brought us here We'll sing to the rafters of laughter All that we are after All that we are after All that we are after Is laughter

Have you ever dined under a crystal chandelier? Did the moment stop and twirl away your fear? Did that lazy love take you up to hold on and lead you through the clear? Did you ever dance until the clock struck five am? Did the fog roll in and take you by the hand? Did that lazy love shake you up to hold on believing you were dear? Or have you found your only? The one you would never grow tired of waiting for You should Since you resist late night kisses while missing Mrs. from your name Honey, don't change Did you ever dance under a full blown autumn moon? Did you make love til the tides woke you at noon? Did you dance among the stars that crest along to Mars And make up one poor man's chandelier?

I've been up all night for centuries Waiting for you, in the blackest part of blue The earth is spinning like a top, and we are flying round Dizzy at our core, craving solid ground You could be the empty street I am walking through I'll sing a song for you, in the blackest part of blue In the blackest part of blue I could not be cold at night, you were always right Beside me, in spite of me You could be the empty sea I am singing to The bluest part of you is an angel to me too I'll sing a song for you I'll sing a song for you It's hard to comprehend that something fragile as your hand Stretches shore to shore Repeating, succeeding Showing us a day that begins with the blackest part of blue And ends in a night of me simply loving you

This river runs faster than traffic The sun shines brighter than bulbs The mountain's taller than rooftops The falls sound sweeter than clubs The fields are softer than pavement This tent is cheaper than rent Tell my bank, eat my fees The river's where I'm at When I get to the ocean, I'll stay for the bonfire Hang for a minute or two Then I'll turn to the sky, dream myself a pair of wings And fly to another ocean I don't feel bad for the call center supervisors Loan officers or the CEO of B of A I don't feel bad for my poor credit score The taxes I've ignored, would've spent on war anyway I was born, so were you I will die, you will too And in between, it ought to mean something More than currency When I get to the ocean, I'll stay for the bonfire Hang for a minute or two Then I'll turn to the sky, dream myself a pair of wings And fly to another ocean The Earth is older than people Truth is richer than wealth Life is shorter than we'd hope To waste is worse than hell Tell my bank, eat my fees The river's where I'll be When I get to the ocean, I'll stay for the bonfire Hang for a minute or three Then I'll turn to the sky, dream myself a pair of wings And fly to another ocean

Ari The Lion 04:15
Ari the Lion I hear you crying I know you're trying to speak Soon you'll be fluent, you'll have help through it Maybe someday we can talk about this song We met when you were three hours old First thing your father showed me Was your vestigial instinct to cling With hands and feet in response to touch You see, we all used to ride the jungles On our mother's backs A hundred thousand years before Baby Bjorn Ari the Lion, the light is blinding And I know you're trying to see Soon you'll be dressed to be stressed And impressed by people, by power Possessions, and things We all feel the need to belong Maybe someday we'll talk about this song When you were only three days old Your hand was freezing cold Your dad gave you a blanket You just swatted it away Ari, you're gonna be okay Your mom put on your hat and told me all about your name Watch out for half-truths and greed Make time to day dream and sing You already know how to breathe Learn to remind yourself that's the most important thing Walk like you know exactly where you're going Embrace the unexpected and change No matter what anyone tells you You don't need cologne if you regularly bathe Ari the Lion I hear you crying I know you're trying to sleep Soon you'll be rested and pressed to invest in our world You'll be tested by everyone you meet Ari the Lion I hear you crying I know you're trying to speak Soon you'll be fluent, you'll have help through it Maybe someday we can talk about this song I hope someday we can talk about this song

Take a moment, any moment of your life Try to hold it, play back any time When it's all that you feel Something like forever keeps it real Enough to seem like something you need I've been hoping you'd be open to my tune The night is young so I guess we'll see it through You know it's all that you feel Something like forever keeps us real Enough to seem like something I have tried now to figure out What it is we're going through What we're about When it all seems to boil down to less Less I guess, I confess I've been obsessed forever Take a moment, any moment of your life Try to hold it, play back any time

I'm living this American holiday In a two-tone truck and a decoy memory I'm stopping my American holiday With my mind stuck back on a risk I did not take Was a big mistake For reasons I can no longer explain I'm watching now I'll follow you down From the haunted corners of your street Hollywood through DC America is scared enough Alone on this American holiday All my friends are going away For a weekend stay We're growing up amidst this terror game All I've learned is do not be gay Or an alien For reasons I can no longer explain I'm watching now I'm looking around From the mute skies gracing New York streets Kahala beaches, Butte beliefs America is scared enough Broadband preacher in my seat Crowds collecting to defeat America I'm scared enough Hold on to what you might be faking Should you find yourself awake in America I'm scared enough Hold on to what you might be faking Should you find yourself awake in America I'm scared enough Hold on to what you might be faking Should you find yourself awake in America We are scared enough America, we're scared enough We are scared enough America I'm spending my American holiday With a long lost love from a life I'm trying to save

Sacred Light 03:20
I don't care about bright lights I don't care about parking spots I don't care about dreams When we're awake, we're better off I'm worried about the future Depending on who you ask I'm in love with the present Even though it won't last Aren't we good? Getting by? Aren't we lucky? Aren't we fine? Aren't we sacred light? You care about sleeping pills You care about cats They're happy face down Right on life's mat Aren't we good? Getting by? Aren't we healing with the times? Aren't we sacred light? I don't care about the Constitution I meant to say "pollution" There's no profit in the solution Who sold the revolution? Show of hands I'd rather read the score I don't care about the war Which one? Aren't we good? Getting by? Aren't we lucky to combine in this present time? Aren't you glad you're alive? Aren't we lucky? Aren't we fine? Aren't we sacred light? Aren't we sacred light? Aren't we sacred, sacred light? I don't care about the darkness Surrounding every star Somewhere more distant, there's more starlight We're only meant to see our part

Cold from the season, wind from the sea Cold wind from every direction at me Atop this mountain all that I can see Is deep water and swells breaking all through the reef It rained today before I came outside Leaving puddles and drips from the rooftops And wide long clouds in the sky Covering every sign of life outside town, the whole world seemed to hide Traveling's left me with just one belief No matter where you go, everyone from there is trying to leave But one thing was true I was looking forward to winter with you Deep in the thoughts I've tried not to think Is a crippling truth causing me to sink As I realized the time that wasted beneath While our eyes focused on what is yet to be Oh I've tried going back But I can't line up the space It's like tracing half a picture And later trying to find your place Although now, I see through I was looking forward to winter with you Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't disagree With the idea that I've abandoned how I subconsciously thought it would be And I don't know what I can do I was looking forward to winter with you

North Star 04:01
Twenty years to this day Since this ship set sail We've been following the night Just to hear it's tales It's been a long time Since I have seen a map If there was a place that we were trying to go we'd be far off track There's not a cloud Up in the sky tonight There's no land within Our watchman's sight The sea is calm and it sparkles With the stars' reflected light We've not even one candle lit For the moon is unbelievably bright No one has kept track of how far we've gone And it's been too long to recount all we've done Truth be told right now I'm not even sure where we are We'll know which side of the world when we can see the North Star As the stars in the East Disappear to pink I listen to the wind meet my breath As I think of what more is out there That we haven't yet seen I could spend the rest of my life In a new part of the sea No one has kept track of how far we've gone And it's been too long to recount all we've done Truth be told right now I'm not even sure where we are We'll know which side of the world when we can see the North Star

about

Laughter

It is cold, please don't stay
If you know then go away
Despite the light, you can't stay
So go away and see the room
From another day

Look up, look out
We are here in the shadow of your doubt
We see your face involved in grace
There is a plan for this plane to land

Laughter is all that we are after
After the laughter brought us here
We'll sing to the rafters of laughter
You made us warm

Under doors, behind the trees
Morning walks with a million me's
The angels tried to go inside
Only asking why you hide

Look up, look out
We are here in the shadow of your doubt
The gold is old but it's still gold
There is a plan for this plane to land

Laughter is all that we are after
After the laughter brought us here
We'll sing to the rafters of laughter
All that we are after
All that we are after
All that we are after
Is laughter
