Track Name: Ashes on the Water
Breathing in the soot and smoke and
Ashes on the water can't get you back
Look back to the side you came from
You'd really better like it where you're
at
The end of a new beginning
Beginning to think about the way things were
No regrets You just can't help wondering
Now you're wandering through the ashes, so black
Ashes on the water, so black
It'll take a miracle to get you back

Sifting through the soot and sand and
Ashes on the water washed up on the shore
Burn your hand on a glowing ember
That's what you get for coming back for
more
Or less in the same position
The same situation with a different view
Regret sets in, you need to get back
Now you're wading through the ashes, so black
Ashes on the water, so black
It'll take a miracle to get you back

And as you're wading through
The ashes stick to you
And they burn your skin
That's what you get for diving in
You make it back to shore
Can't fight it any more
And as you fade to black
You feel the ashes on the water so black
Lapping at your ankles, at your back
It took a miracle to get you back…

Coming to, your vision's blurry
Wipe the soot and sand away and grimace at your burns
Gather strength, you rise to your feet
You always knew that you would get your
turn
Your back on the crumbling rubble
The ashes on the water from the bridge you burned
Your hand closes 'round a book of matches
If you need to you can keep them far back
Ashes on the water, so black
It took a miracle to get you back
Track Name: Cary's Here
It's 5 o'clock in the morning
Sunday, my day off
The sun's still down but you are up
You start to babble and then you cough
And your eyes must be open now
Because you start to cry
My bare feet make the floorboards creak
As I get up to find out why
It's all right now, Daddy's here.

I dim the lights
Before I turn them on
And I say, "Shhh, it's okay"
Your eyes light up when they meet mine
And a smile crinkles your face
Then my heart starts swelling up
Until I think it's going to burst
The sight of your face makes it skip 12 beat
Missing you is the worst
But it's all right now, Cary's here.

And I never knew that I could never know...

Now it's Monday morning
And I'm going to work
You're still sleeping when I leave
I don't get to kiss you, 'cause I don't want to wake you
We'll let your Mommy get some sleep
Though I know why I'm leaving now
It's still not easy to do
But when I come back home
The first thing I see is you
And it's all right now, Cary's here.
Track Name: False Start
I studied all my books
And I thought I knew what to be
It seemed so easy
It seemed so easy
But the second I got my chance
I fell flat on my face
I got out of the race
I got out of the race
It seemed to me like the only thing to do

I thought I heard the gun
And so I started to run
But got called for a false start
And now I'm back at the gate
But it's getting late
And I'm afraid of the dark
And I would try to run, but I planted my feet in the ground

Bring me the mortar
And I'll go grab my trowel
We'll build a wall
We'll build a wall
Count off a hundred yards
And, again the race is on
Hit the wall head-on
Hit it head-on
Well, it seemed to me like the only thing to do

I thought I heard the gun
And so I started to run
But got called for a false start
As a penalty
They put nails through my feet
And then one through my heart
And I would try to run, but I just keep falling down

I studied all my books
And I thought I knew what to be
But it's not for me
It's not for me
I think of all the things I've done
And everything I've said
I can't get out of my head
Get it out of my head
I guess that I'm the only one to blame

I thought I heard the gun
And so I started to run
But got called for a false start
I took the gun from my head
And I aimed it, instead
At the wall I built in the dark
And it didn't come down, but at least now I know where to go
Track Name: I Got it Back
I looked at myself, with my own eyes
And said, "You'd better do something"
I took my life in my own hands, and felt its weight
And then I threw it as far as
I could
Feel my hot breath on my neck
And I put that all aside
I got shook down
When I looked around
I found I'd lost my life

And I had to get it back, but didn't know where to start looking
So I wandered aimlessly, saw some old friends
But they didn't know me
So, I broke down
Sat on the ground
And I heard something snap
Then, I got up and, sure enough
It was broken
But I got it back

I got it back

And now I watch it twice as hard, in doing that
I think I'm losing
What I've been dedicated to, and cannot lose
Because I'll never find it
Again
I'm lost
And I know this time
I'll never get it back
It was held too tight
With all my might
And now it's more than cracked

But I got it back
