Track Name: Tops of the Trees
It was late, and I climbed to the tops of the trees
You were all that I, that I was hoping to see
But the wind picked up and knocked me off balance
And I regret to say that I fell far
How foolish to think that I would be safe from harm

Isn't this how life should go?
When you think you're up you slip to find
Just how low you really are?

It was late, and the moon, it was proving its truth
I was holding my breath
Hoping to see yours on the window outside of my bedroom
But your mind sped up and held you from a challenge
And I just wish that I had known the truth
Now you've got nothing left, to prove
But its not like you ever did

Isn't this how life should go?
When you think you're up you slip to find
Just how low you really are
Isn't this how life should go?
When you think you're down you stand to find
Just how much you've really grown

But its not like you waited for me
To see this through
But its not like I waited for anyone
To help me too

There's so much left, to prove

Isn't this how life should go?
When you think you're up you slip to find
Just how low you really are?
Isn't this how life should go?
When you think you're down you stand to find
Just how much you've really grown
Track Name: Nobody Robs A Bank While Everyone's Watching
I can’t wrap my head around
How I get what I need avoiding all that I’ve deserved
I can’t hear, I can’t hear a sound
I’ve been far to busy to follow good advice I’ve heard.

Am I just too
Deep to know what’s right?
Cause I’ve been robbing my friends
Urging them to close their eyes.

My mother’s scared my life won’t slow
If its true well then
How will there be room to grow
All my friends
They try to pull myself from me
In ways that they don’t think that I know

Settle down now
Whats the worry right?
My mouth speaks pleasantries like
We all share and share alike

My mother’s scared my life won’t slow
If its true well then
How will there be room to grow
All my friends
They try to pull myself from me
In ways that they don’t think that I know

And I know
I’ve got to live in debt
Cause when life speeds up
Oh God, you grab all you can get
And I know
I’ve got to travel far
Cause the more that you have
You’ll find, the less you are

My mother’s scared my life won’t slow
If its true well then
How will there be room to grow
All my friends
They try to pull myself from me
In ways that they don’t think that I know
