Track Name: Mockingbird
run while you still can
run far from standing in place, standing in place
I'm gonna turn my life around, life around
tired of walls that shift and crumble down, down

haven't you heard?
that I'm a broken record, another lonely mockingbird
haven't you seen?
what happens to a person when they don't believe in anything

take while taking is still good
all these baby steps won't get me far when I wanna move
well maybe I've just never progressed
or maybe I just haven't yet; falling down, down

haven't you heard?
that I'm a broken record, another lonely calling bird
haven't you seen?
what happens to a person when they don't believe in anything

and no I didn't want to die there, by that window on my own
and it seems you think all I have to offer's not enough
that I just can't do things on my own...

on my own

haven't you heard?
that I'm a broken record, and I don't believe in anything.
Track Name: Mountain Lion
I will be braver today
no one could stand in the way of the mountain lion
going for his prey
it may seem a senseless kill, as desperation often will
but there's a purpose well served, maybe we get exactly what we deserve

darling I won't judge you, 'cause I understand

I know the tides often change, I tried to touch down
I found there was water where I used to see the ground
I know the tides often change, and you're changeable as well
with no compass, no direction, it's impossible to tell what's true

darling I won't judge you, 'cause I understand
and if I seemed nervous, that's just the way I am.
