Track Name: Troubled Hands
Sometimes my mind is wandering.
Sometimes I hope it don't come back.
But if you are the only thing that saves me,
I must be headed down the right path.

Sometimes my hands aren't my hands.
Sometimes they reach for the door.
Well if I ever find the key to be taken
Then I don't need these troubled hands no more.

But I won't turn my face to be shaded.
If the sun burns a hole in my soul.
And I won't be lying if I say then
That I would use these troubled hands to pray for more.

Sometimes these eyes of mine see things
Sometimes they lie to me
Well if I ever saw my eyes betray me
Then I don't need these troubled eyes to see

Sometimes these lips don't know when to be silent
Sometimes my mouth has words of its own
Well if I ever catch them shout in anger
Then I would use these troubled lips to call you home

But I won't turn my face to be shaded.
If the sun burns a hole in my soul.
And I won't be lying if I say then
That I would use these troubled hands to pray for more.

And if this troubled heart stops loving
And if your troubled heart is sore
Then I will use these troubled hands to show your troubled eyes what exactly these troubled lips are for

Cause this troubled heart I have is yours
Track Name: Grand Machine
How come all the stars are so damn far?
How can we even know what they are?
I'm building a rocket ship out of scrap wood and politics
It only seats two and I want you to come.

I think I've been cursed for quite some time.
When you met me I was giving up the fight.
Wipe away my memory
and stock it new with everything that we'll need when you and me take to the stars

'Cause it's a long way to Earth from Mars.

Turn me into a machine
Wind me up and set me free
Make me into something someone needs to see
