Track Name: Graduate
On the day you graduate
take a little- it's never too late
on the day you graduate
you won't turn around

there are voices in the walls
your parents' footsteps echo down the halls
I guess we're lucky after all
you won't turn around

and the words you hold inside keep em close to you
the words you hold inside

i'm gonna lose you, and i'm gonna need you tomorrow
will you be the same?
right here tonight you and I know we might need something
this bright not to fade away
I'm gonna lose you, and I'm gonna need you tomorrow
to help me to believe
what I know today

On the day you graduate
gonna stand in tall grass, and catch what you may
on the day you graduate
you won't turn around

and the words you hold inside

i'm gonna lose you, and i'm gonna need you tomorrow
will you be the same?
right here tonight you and I know we might need something
this bright not to fade away
I'm gonna lose you, and I'm gonna need you tomorrow
to help me to believe
what I know today

keep em close to you

i'm gonna lose you, and i'm gonna need you tomorrow
will you be the same?
right here tonight you and I know we might need something
this bright not to fade away
and I'm gonna lose you, and I'm gonna need you tomorrow
to help me to believe
what I know today

on the day you graduate
you won't turn around
Track Name: Snake Skin Heart
And if you're waiting for the answers
I think you waited here too long
and if you're waiting for the dance
you're just missing the songs

and your snake skin heart
unfettering it falls apart
untethering we fall apart
and I will let you go

and if you find me in a book
I hope you underline the words
for all the passages for forgot
I hope you come back to this verse

and your snake skin heart
unfettering it falls apart
untethering we fall apart
and I will let you go

and in this cabin
and in this empty tin
without wood or kindling
we'll burn
we'll burn
we'll burn

and when you shed your parts
your leaves are different from seeds
to feed the saplings in the ground
I turn to soil to meet your needs

and your snake skin heart
unfettering it falls apart
untethering we fall apart
and I will let you go
