Lyrics

Land

Written By: Justin Kaufman

Why are you throwing stones
when it takes so long
to turn a house to a home?
The sand's no finer here.
Man drawn lines are the objects you fear...

Land-
You are lost where you are,
a chosen one broken off,
born just to bleed for this land.

Martyr for the cause-
Flesh and fire,
crash as you had designed.
The young you leave behind
did imbibe the pursuit of your life.

Land-
You are lost where you are,
a chosen one broken off,
born just to bleed for this land.

Conquer these kingdoms
gather your crowns
and pray all your walls
will never come down.
Faith is the failure
of man to resign
to all he can't prove
as he waits for a sign
from outer space...

The Matter

Written By: Justin Kaufman

Your mother did you good
You listen like you should
but your politic's unusual this time
It's like nobody's home
You think on your own time,
and you justify the outcome to yourself

Between your silent hours
I go spinning 'round

It's the matter of all your confidence fading
It's the matter of all your confidence fading out...

You're pulling all the shades
And there's darkness in the day
That you find your life amusing's not ok
But you'd never know
if nobody told you
You'd never know and no one'd ever tell

Between your silent hours
I go spinning 'round

It's the matter of all your confidence fading
It's the matter of all your confidence fading out...

Meet me at the corner
and we'll drive down to the shore
I'll get us far away from home
We could wait a lifetime
for the tide to turn this storm
or we could drive to some place warm...

They echo in your head
the things you should have told me
A million words entangled in your mind

Are you sinking in?
Did you fall in line?
Every silent hour
Sends me spinning 'round

It's the matter of all your confidence fading
It's the matter of all your confidence fading out...

Traffic

Written By: Justin Kaufman

The sun was on the rise
but I just watched you sleeping
You can tell yourself a thousand times
you're bigger than your feelings
You can send her on a plane
with a line she's heard before,
but my conclusion's drawn either way

Miles away I can almost feel her weighing my love
Traffic stopped but I'll be damned if it's over,
I'm not over you...

All the nights you shook the floor
and rattled through my ceiling,
restored my faith in sex and god
you gave me cause for believing
And I know I crossed the line
with half the things I said
Just to keep you further from my heart
than you kept me

Miles away I can almost feel her weighing my love
Traffic stopped but I'll be damned if it's over,
I'm not over you...

She went from on my way
to being in my way
My heart was so defensive
And now she sends me mail
and signs it 'see you later,'
I miss 'I miss you...'

Miles away I can almost feel her weighing my love
Traffic stopped but I'll be damned if it's over,
I'm not over you...
