Track Name: Purgatory Cove
I drove into the cold
White knuckled, blind and bold
Shining white and gold
The colours in my soul
How I wound up here
Was I a souvenir?
We lost our landing gear
We circled in the cold
Until we disappeared,
like missing mountaineers
into the atmosphere
To where we'll never know

In purgatory cove, I wait

I keep a secret here
A secret so severe
I sing on your radio
My signal comes and goes
I sleep in the maple leaves
I hide in the gentle breeze
I blend into the trees
I scare the animals away
How did it come to this?
A forbidden kiss?
White and gold
somewhere in my soul

I sing in the choir here
And I just disappear
And I don't sing too loud
And I just blend into the crowd
Track Name: Born in the Wild
I’m in love with you boys & girls
Born wild in a broken world
Diamond smiles like ocean pearls
Dreaming of a world as one
Left here in the dead of night
Left to fend for yourselves & fight
In the darkness you’ll ignite 
You’re the spark to bring the light

Kick it till the walls come down
Don’t let them push you 'round
They said you’re just a child
But they’re running scared
cuz’you were born in the wild

I’m in love with your raging hearts
Born in a battle that you didn’t start
Blindfolded in the endless dark
Looking for a world as one
I know you’re gonna find the light
I know you’re gonna set things right
I know you’re gonna shine so bright
Fighting for a world as one

Pall-bearers, marching snares
We need change not thoughts and prayers
I want to be there when it overheats
& you drag their statues through the streets

I’m in love with you boys and girls
Born wild in a broken world
Diamond smiles like ocean pearls
Dreaming of a world as one
Track Name: The Red Fox
Today I saw the red fox
early in the morning
Move in like a swat team
without any warning
And I was underneath the car
In an oil change daydream
And I could hear your voice so clear
in the wheel well whisper
And I could feel you all around

I wish I was the red fox
Who never even met you
He’s perfectly designed
For running through the valley
Without you running through his mind
Tonight I saw the red fox
later in the evening
Moving like a bandit
sly and so deceiving
I was up a ladder high
in a window wash daydream
And I could see your face so clear
in the window well whisper
I could feel you all around

CHORUS

Out of the frozen ground
You climbed frail and small
And when the hunters came
I heard your vixen call
I held my head in pain
When I woke and found you gone

Today I saw the red fox
sleeping in the tall grass
And I could feel you all around
I wish I was the red fox
Who never ever hurt you
He’s perfectly designed
For running through the valley
Without you running through his mind

I wish I was the red fox
Who never even met you
Cuz he’s perfectly designed
Running through the valley
Without you running through his mind
Track Name: Back Where You Started
You're back where you started
You're out on your own
You're back where you started
But you're not alone

They tried to hold you
With mortar & chain
They lied & told you
That you were to blame
They led you astray
They led you on
Tried to blow out your flame
They've been steering you wrong

hey tore you to pieces
They left you for dead
They bottled your courage
They rattled your head
With a knife in your back
And a stick in your spokes
Up out of the ash
You rose in the smoke

They tried to roll you
Said you’d never last
Your heart is a brick
They threw through the glass
Now you live in the moment
You stare at the sun
They don’t know nothing
F@#k’m you won
Track Name: Nobody Rules You
Be who you want to be
Say what you want to say
Live how you want to live
Sing if you want to sing
Cry if you want to cry
Give if you want to give

But don’t let them hold you down
Don’t fade into the crowd
Cuz they don’t make the rules
This world is bright and blue
And it’s waiting there for you
Nobody rules you

Stay if you want to stay
Leave if you want to leave
Go where you want to go
Try if you want to try
Quit if you want to quit
Know when you don’t knowThink how you want to think
Pray if you want to pray
Doubt if you want to doubt
Fly if you want to fly
Hide if you want to hide
Shout if you want to shout

Fight if you want to fight
For something you know is right
If that something sets you free
Love how you want to love
Dream if you want to dream
And be who you want to be
Track Name: The Right Thing
I know you’re sorry
I’m sorry too
I know the story
We both know the truth
Lets forgive and forget
It’s the right thing to do
But sometimes the right thing
That’s hard to do

You held your own
We gave it all
We saw the whole world burn
Since just last fall
Water under the bridge
Smoke over the fire
I saw the road wash out
And the flames get higher

I know you’re sorry
I’m sorry too
You know my story
We both know the truth
Lets forgive and forget
It’s the right thing to do
But sometimes the right thing
That’s hard to do

In the quietest moments
It comes back for me
I try to shake it
But I can’t get free
Water under the bridge
Wind out over the sea
It ain’t coming back
At least not for me

I know you’re sorry
I’m sorry too
I know your story
And what you’ve been through
Lets forgive and forget
It’s the right thing to do
But sometimes the right thing
That’s hard to do

I can’t hold on
& I can’t let go
I was so wrong
And I didn’t know
Water under the bridge
I saw the sky turn gold
Things I can’t explain
I saw your heart unfold

I know you’re sorry
I’m sorry too
I know know the story
We both know the truth
Lets forgive and forget
We got nothing to lose
But I lost the right thing
When I lost you
