Track Name: Outside
Pack up my bags
Get in my car and just drive
I wanna go
Go outside and see what's there
This town it has taken its toll, it's a drag
Don't wanna feel like I've wasted all my time

Find some new friends
Friendly faces, friendly souls
Find a new home
Somewhere I can rest my head
This town it has taken its toll, weighs me down
Don't wanna feel like I've wasted all my time
Track Name: Setting Sail
Patience, I don’t have too much more
Landlocked for too long now
And the bodies of water, they call me
(Oh)

I’m setting sail
Can’t stay too long
I can’t stand still
Taking its toll

Set sail, find a way out of here
Leave home, nothing back there for me
Words, they don’t have much meaning
(Oh)
Track Name: Spring Break
Lay on the grass
Watch the cloud formations pass over us
Point out people in the parks and laugh
Where do they go?
Counting objects on our fingertips
I feel at ease
On the drive home, sing along to songs we’ve never heard

I was alone, you were around
Can’t get your smile outta my skull

Walk through forests hearing nature's buzz
It’s better with you
Remember colours that we saw last night in my bedroom
Drive past fields and past the shoreline
Nothing to do but lay on the grass
Watch the cloud formations pass over us
Track Name: Friends
Try to be friends with you
Makes no sense, what can I do?
Trying my best to learn
Someone’s late and someone’s burned

Wall’s gone, now I see
My leg was pulled, the joke’s on me
Seeing your face around
Why do I still talk to you?

And it seems like I have tried far more than this is worth
Can’t give you anything you don’t already have

Try to be friends with you
Makes no sense, what can I do?
Making your promises
Turn out empty in the end
Track Name: Walkabout
I had profound ghostly fears and I don’t know why
Feel like I’m just sleepwalking, like I’m nodding off
I am seeking some answers but I don’t seek stars
She said take your time now son, she said take your time

And I’m frightened, I’m haunted
I’m afraid of what lies ahead of me
Heading out on this walkabout
Heading out on this walkabout

I had profound ghostly fears and I don’t know why
There are days that must happen, I just don’t know why
Treading water ‘til I find I’m just wasting time
No destination set, got nowhere in mind
Track Name: Departure
Ages ago, you just disappeared
I don’t know just where you went
No one knows just why you went away
No one knows, you’re such a mystery
(Yeah)

Ages ago, you just disappeared
No one knows just where you went
I still think of you and the things you’d say
Now you’re gone, you’re gone completely
(Yeah)
