Track Name: Painting The Picture Of Distance
PAINTING THE PICTURE OF DISTANCE

painting the picture of distance
the trials of making it home
i've been gone astray
on this path of abjection
since I was born


i build things up
and tear them down
i watch the world
i move from town to town

TRYING TO CONNECT
I'M TRYING
NOT TO FORGET
I'M TRYING
TO MEMORIZE
I'M TRYING
NOT TO LOSE TRACK
OF WHAT I HAD

paying the price for this lifestyle
the trials of making it right
a lonesome track keeps repeating forever
and infinite times
Track Name: Lost In The Living
LOST IN THE LIVING

hey little brother it's alright
we all get lost from time to time
you will find your way someday
don't give up you'll be ok

we go to school to learn and grow
we choose a path that we dont know
find a job but find it fast to
become a member of the upper-class

it's alright to get lost
- my friend
it's alright if you fall and need to rest
- your weary head

THERE ARE NO STRAIGHT LINES
THERE IS NO MAP
THERE IS NO BOOK NO RELIGION
NO LIGHT THAT LEADS THE WAY

you're still a kid and you dont know
which direction is the best to go
all these prospects make you sick
lost in the living full of shit

accept the past dont miss the chance to
start again it's in your hands
the world is yours and time has come to
look forward and move on
Track Name: Tribute To The Fox
Tribute To The Fox

my dearest friend
you raised and told me 'bout everything
holding my hand
you taught me how to take a stand
and sang us to sleep
told us 'bout courage and loyalty
showed a little boy
to discern from black and white

WHY DO WE LIVE
WHY MUST EVERYTHING END
WHERE DO WE GO
WHEN WE FADE AWAY TO DUST
THIS LIFE IS TOO SHORT
I DONT WANT TO LET YOU GO

call me the fox
dad can jump to the moon from a mntn top
a father and a friend
I'll never forget how to take a stand
i missed you as a child
i was searching for you at night
slipping into roles
to make it better than your dad
Track Name: Where You Want To Be
Where You Want To Be

there's a ghost in your head
you know you'll have to let him go
all you're feelings and your heart
are still beating for the past

you can't stop listening to the songs
you two've been sharing for too long
full of teardrops in your eyes
you turn around and say goodye

chop chop off with his head
it ain't easy to let go
you can't hold on to a ghost

all your friends smart advice
you know that they're right
for you it's hard to imagine
how to go on all alone

even though it hurts like hell
now it's over and you're free
Track Name: Newtown
NEWTOWN

It's a new start down here in newtown
had to leave the idylle behind
i'm looking for a job here in newtown
enough of busking around

CHAI LATTE, FLAT WHITE
A PIECE OF CRAP WITH CREAM NO WORRIES
I'M GOOD AT SMALLTALK, IF I MAY
BUT ALL I WANT ARE A FEW GIGS AND TO GET PAID

found this beautiful place here in newtown
i was never so close to call it a home
holding on to my heart
together we leave into the great unknown

the beginning was hard, cold broke and hungry
but important to see how little you need
the beginning was hard cold broke and lonely
but important to see how little you need
