1.Stumble and Fall (修改)

作詞:Chan Kinchla, John Popper

Breathe, it's better than nothing
Believe, like I know you can
Fly straight through the light now
Hold on, I'm your man
And oh it's a strange world
But to you it still belongs

And I've got a plan
Should you stumble and fall

Keep your arms out
And I will swing for you
Take my hand and feel free

Smile, you are surviving
C'mon, I'll help you up
And oh it's a strange world
Step up to see it all

And I've got a plan
Should you stumble and fall

Keep your arms out
And I will swing for you
Take my hand and feel free
Take my hand and feel free

I know it, it's not like you need me
Believe me, I know I'm not that tough
And oh since you have me
I'll be there should you call

And I've got a plan
Should you stumble and fall

Keep your arms out
And I will swing for you
Take my hand and feel free, feel free
Keep your arms out
And I will swing for you
Take my hand and feel free




2.Unable to Get Free (修改)

作詞:Chan Kinchla, John Popper, B Wilson

You asked me if I live without her
I choke on my reply
Let the blind man
At the mirror spin his lie

And I'm damned if I don't try
Damned if I don't try
But no matter what I say
It doesn't go away at all
And I'm still unable to get free

And I've never been afraid
Of a convenience
That I could have made
But having to admit this one has me

And so the tiger's got his toe
And the only way to holler
Is by letting go
Still unable to get free

With cork and wax
I try my best
To spackle in the hole
The inevitable aging of my soul

And my heart it gets so tired
It's my heart and it gets so tired
It's just a trace to track the pain
The beat that I sustain for hoping
And I am still unable to get free

And I've never been afraid
Of a consequence
That I could have made
But having to admit this one has me

And so the tiger's got his toe
And the only way to holler
Is by letting go
Still unable to get free

I see connections
In my contention
That I could see redemption
Through the bars of this cage

And I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
For accepting sight unseen
So desperately I dream
Of some day when I won't be unable to get free

And I've never been afraid
Of a consequence
That I could have made
But having to accept this one has me

And so the tiger's got his toe
And the only way to holler
Is by letting go
Still unable to get free

And I've never been afraid
Of a consequence
That I could have made
But having to admit this one has me

And so the tiger's got his toe
And the only way to holler
Is by letting go
Still unable to get free




3.Sweet and Broken (修改)

作詞:C Barron, John Popper

She smokes my last cigarette
She forgives me but I don't know it yet
And I don't ask but sometimes why is beautiful
She's a little cheap but worth the wait
Of honey kisses sleeping late
They steal my covers, but I'm just glad my bed is full

And if the words were spoken, they'd shatter on the floor
And once they'd broken open would it matter any more
You've got to love her to see her
And in seeing there is hoping, oh she's so sweet
She's sweet and broken

She'll never tell you anything
She's the fire that darkness brings
And I get lost but that's just where I'm supposed to be
She won't say why she cries at marigolds and butterflies
Or why her smile seems to hide a tragedy

And if the words were spoken, they'd shatter on the floor
And once they'd broken open would it matter any more
You've got to love her to see her

And in seeing there is hoping, oh she's so sweet
She's sweet and broken

I see her rising through the trees
She's like a wounded moon gazing back at me

And if the words were spoken, they'd shatter on the floor
And if the words were spoken, they'd shatter on the floor
And once they'd broken open would it matter any more
You've got to love her to see her
And in seeing there is hoping, oh she's so sweet
She's sweet and broken

And if the words were spoken, they'd shatter on the floor
And once they'd broken open would it matter any more
You've got to love her to see her
And in seeing there is hoping, oh she's so sweet
She's sweet and broken

You've got to love her to see her
And in seeing there is hoping, oh she's so sweet
And broken




4.Can't See Why (修改)

作詞:Chan Kinchla, John Popper

Kiss away the morning hours
In need of some restraint
While raised to think knowledge is power
I've come to learn it ain't

'Cause here I go when the hat drops
In the lions mouth for more
And this time there's no illusion
For what I got in store

And it comes, and it goes
And eventually slows
And we lie, and we trade
And I guess destiny is made

And I can't see why
But I do it anyway
You reap what you sew
Oh, so the poets say

Well, she knew my name and she came to me
And she wanted to spend some time
And she looked soft to touch so it's the same you see
I just wanted to make her mine

So there we are just standing there
Trying to figure out why we're there
Attempting some connection
While we're brave enough to care

And we try, and we fail
And oh, the sirens how they wail
And it's bad, and it's good
Does it matter if we should

And I can't see why
But I do it anyway
You reap what you sew
Oh, so the poets say

And I can't see why
But I do it anyway
You reap what you sew
Oh, so the poets say

And I can't see why
But I do it anyway
You reap what you sew
Oh, so the poets say




5.This Ache (修改)

作詞:John Popper, Brendan Wilson

This ache that follows you down
From wherever you both came from
Well, it won't leave quietly
It just waits here noisily with me

I turn to go but quite instead
It sinks its fangs into my head
And gnaws upon me like a greedy bone
The fragrant scent of parts unknown

I try my best but it gets worse
And fearful of this blessed curse
The moon is full, I feel my teeth
My instincts give no sympathy for me

All I want is to stay here with you
For at least a couple of minutes more
In your front seat by any reason, I can find
My right foot still dangling out your door

This ache that follows you down
From wherever you both came from
Well, it won't leave quietly
It just waits here noisily with me

The pots and pans and bare assed bones
Would have me feeling all alone
But never fear the ache is there
And calmly, he pulls up a chair

And through the night we play some hands
While the ache, he issues his demands

Yeah, the ache, he issues his demands
And I'm like Custer at his lemonade stand

And all I have is this ache
Just to see you again
Though I've got no pretext to
And hope won't quench my thirst this time
Can't you see that I'm aching for you?

I go to sleep when I awake
In the kitchen is my ache
He cooks me breakfast ties my shoes
Puts in the time, he pays my dues

He sticks a needle in my eye
And haunts me like some tragic lie
Reminds me 'til I bend to break
That I've been given the gift of

This ache that followed you down
From wherever you both came from
Well, it won't leave quietly
It just waits here noisily with me

This ache that followed you down
From wherever you both came from

This ache that followed you down
From wherever you both came from
Well, it won't leave quietly
It just waits here noisily with me




6.Mount Normal (修改)

作詞:John Popper

I propose to climb Mount Normal
My expedition needs supply
And fortune smiles upon the fool
Who gives at least a try

And in the quest to take Mount Normal
I've no Sherpa for a guide
It's the kind of trek that feels its way
As I sacrifice my pride

And deign to dare to risk rejection
From what I don't know how to fake
So much that I would give to this
And I don't know what to take

And I am scaling up Mount Normal
And I get higher every day
And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray

That I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy

Well, I am halfway up Mount Normal
From here at least it looks that way
Because I notice in the newer eyes
A fear I lack today

And it occurred to me this summit
Is something everybody seeks
We're so aware the precipice
While we dream about the peaks

And I am scaling up Mount Normal
And I get higher every day

And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray

That I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy

And I'll chip at icy obstacles
Until this mountain is secure
Then I will realize and find my way
At least I'm reasonably sure

When I an high atop Mount Normal
I'll finally forgive the past
And feel at once that I belonged
To normalcy at last

And I'm high atop Mount Normal
And I get higher every day
And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray

That I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy

And we are scaling up Mount Normal
And we get higher every day
And we dream to be somebody else
And every night we pray

Someday we'll stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if we grasp
And cling to normalcy
