Track Name: Borrowed Ground
I took my first step
Standing on borrowed ground
Standing on borrowed, borrowed ground

Now you, you may say that I’m ungrateful in every way
That I'm too young, too stubborn, too smart for my own good
But do you know what I see?

You don’t seem so happy
You don’t often smile
So I don’t think I’ll go back home
So I don’t think I’ll go back home

So you tell me don’t run away
Think I might ruin my life
So you tell me don’t run away
Say I might break my, break my
heart
So I don’t think I’ll find myself going back home

Woo!

I appreciate the sentiment
listen and you will see
I still call this home
I still call this home
I still call this home
Track Name: Amusing
Smoke rings drift across the morning sky,
As the bats in the distance are learning to fly.
Our borders blur and our thoughts collide
And the feeling it brings makes a home in the sky

Now I know your mind as well
As the pauper who drinks and her mind's not well
She taunts me with her sullen eyes
And the story she tells wets the untrained eye

We wandered on among the trees
The feeling spreads like a social disease
The minds they wonder in tandem at ease
And the feeling it makes brings us both to our knees

Now I know your mind as well
As the pauper who drinks and her mind's not well
She taunts me with her sullen eyes
And the story she tells wets the untrained eye

Now I know your mind as well
As the pauper who drinks and her mind's not well
She taunts me with her sullen eyes
And the story she tells wets the untrained eye

I'm not trying to be amusing but you must recall
When we travelled on from the makings of the walls

I'm not trying to be amusing but you must recall
When we travelled on from the makings of the walls
Track Name: Self Exclusion
Self-Exclusion

Stand tall while you wear your black veil
Hold the hand of your child who surely will not fail
Never mind the pity, they are worriers and they don’t know
How you can go on and on and on all on your own

You give me hope
That it will go right
While this goes on
I'll leave my head in the sand

Look at that line of mourners, here to watch you wail
I will not be a part of their endless, mindless trail
I won't preach to you, but you will find
That over and over again they will try to steal your weary mind

You give me hope
That it will go right
While this goes on
I'll leave my head in the sand
Leave me while I leave my head in the sand
Leave me while I leave my head in the sand

I will not join in on their game anymore
It feels like one long drawn out war
I cannot bear to face the outside
I’d rather sit inside out of the cold

You give me hope
That it will go right
You give me hope
You make me whole

Leave me while I leave my head in the sand
Leave me while I leave my head in the sand
