Track Name: Full Steam Ahead
Oh, I look up to the sky and it never really lasts
I look into the blade at my reflection
I straighten my bowtie, it might just be the nerves
My shaky little thighs, i'm just impatient
All of which are lies, here comes the worst
My foolish need to adduce all things unneeded

And full steam ahead, get in your positions
we're setting sail for this inquisition
And if i'm dead, i'll take you all with me
But in the end, it's all in my head

Oh, this essential drive makes my mood cascade
Look out to your right, you'll see this world, it's so depressed
As I slide a far out fall

And full steam ahead, get in your positions
we're setting sail for this inquisition
And if i'm dead, i'll take you all with me
But in the end, it's all in my head
Track Name: King Sings
Coming out now, coming out now, can you hear them march?
Lift your knee, set foot to see, can you feel the energy
Walking fast no time for last, please make way for the king
His mane so long, a name so strong, with the brave he sings

You can take my body and throw it in the sea
You can chew my bones and leave nothing left of me
You can seize the river and wash out my skin
You can summon the sun to parch my living kin

Coming out now, coming out now, can you hear them march?
Lift your knee, set foot to see, can you feel the energy
Walking fast no time for last, please make way for the king
His mane so long, a name so strong, with the brave he sings

You can take my body and throw it in the sea
You can chew my bones and leave nothing left of me
You can seize the river and wash out my skin
You can summon the sun to parch my living kin
Track Name: Sault Ste. Marie
And yes our feet, we're pedaling back up to Sault Ste. Marie
And yes the wind is troubling as we all go against the tide

We are the northern cyclists
We are the northern bicyclists
Riding back and forth to this
Place we call Lake Michigan

And yes our legs making progress as we go up and down that hill
Doesn't matter if we rust, we'll still make it to the windmill

We are the northern cyclists
We are the northern bicyclists
Riding back and forth to this
Place we call Lake Michigan

I Feel like this bike ride will never end, it'll never end
Track Name: Thorn of a Rose
Do you remember how we used to be?
My vacant mind thought that things were just fine
And it was my trust that you deceived
And now you've fallen behind the red line

I wasn't proud of the road I chose
Sweet scent now gone I am the thorn of a rose (x2)

And in the end, we'll never understand
How we got so old and how we got so sad
I was so lost in the depths of fear
And met a man with a smile so sincere

I wasn't proud of the road I chose
Sweet scent now gone I am the thorn of a rose (x2)
Track Name: Slow Delivery
Catch a wink in Utopia, this is my pipe dream
Things I love and all above, describing life to me
It contradicts my certainty, a sentimental seed
To deal with this anxiety is a slow delivery

Slow delivery, proto history, sleeping silently, slow delivery (x2)

Catch a wink in Utopia, this is my pipe dream
Things I love and all above, describing life to me
It contradicts my certainty, a sentimental seed
To deal with this anxiety is a slow delivery

Slow delivery, proto history, sleeping silently, slow delivery (x2)
