Track Name: The Plan
I know what was said
you swear but your voice shakes
oh that’s not what it reads
somebody’s reaching
for beat up old plans
a lasting concern
don’t have to do me a favor
no we’ll just wrap at what is done

I hear sighs of swans
feel them leaking behind us
off singing like it’s what’s right

from all that we’ve seen
it says you can’t stop now
way down
wasting your love
wasting your love
while you’re wasting
your time
and all that we’ve seen
you say that I’ve gone out
way down
so you’re wasting your love
why’re you wasting your time?

I stick so light
it seems like you’re racing still
oh you know where we are
your colors come flooding
submerging the field

I hear star-lit songs
the kind that you live for
yeah the kind where I run and hide

from all that we’ve seen
it says you can’t stop now
way down
wasting your love
wasting your love
while you’re wasting
your time
and all that we’ve seen
you say that I’ve gone out
way down
so you’re wasting your love
why’re you wasting your time?
Track Name: Proper Ghost Man
wait up just a bit 
cause I'd hate to be the last 
to make it back on board 
hold on just a second 
proper ghost man 

you've been taking things 
you've been taking days 
you've been making waves 
I've been watching 

young but old 
aware but sleeping 
watch how the glamour fades 
and people start to go 

humor me 
just a little 
let me see them 

you've been taking things 
you've been taking days 
you've been making waves 
i've been watching 

going going going going 

wait up just a bit 
cause i'd hate to be the last 
to make it back on board 
hold on just a second 
proper ghost man 

you've been taking things 
you've been taking days 
you've been making waves 
i've been watching
