Track Name: Shaker
As I look in the mirror
I hear the whistle sound
And I see what’s not there
My last train’s come around

I start to feel the day go by
Just as the river rolls
As if my answers lie
Where the water goes

I find myself looking back
I still hear the sound
And I see the tracks
Of what wasn’t found

I’m sailing under
I don’t know where I’m bound
I know it’s getting colder
And I’m sinking down
Track Name: Toby's Untitled Song
I know that you said, it's all been for the best
but now that you're gone I can't take it any longer
Everything we had was all just for show
and now that I see that I guess I don't know

You went and left me standing in the rain
Searching for the answers to the questions racking my brain
and all of that knowledge I have since gained
has shown me the path that I should take

While you walked away, I thought my whole world would stop spinning
And I'd say
That I missed you so, but now that I know
I feel like you should go

You went and left me standing in the rain
Searching for the answers to the questions racking my brain
and all of that knowledge I have since gained
has shown me the path that I should take
Track Name: The Author
Looking back on recent history
I'll tell you it was such a waste
You know you'll pay for every choice you've made
Don't let yourself suffer for too long
No, no, no

You're in control now don't forget it
The only one who knows what's next

Don't be afraid to open up your book
It's there for you to read
Learn from what's already been written
yeah, yeah, yeah
Even though the next chapter may seem daunting
Keep writing
Don't go insane over something you can change
no, no, no

You're in control now don't forget it
The only one who knows what's next

And when you feel like it's not getting better
Remember you're the author of your book
So crumple up the paper; start from scratch
Turn it into something you won't regret

Yeah, yeah yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You're in control now don't forget it
The only one who knows what's next
Track Name: Scientist Studies (Acoustic)
What ghosts exist behind these attic walls?
There's got to be a simpler explanation
'cause I scrimped and I saved just to find that they've been splicing my inventions

Cold skin and bones at this latitude
We ain't paying 'til the heat comes through
So you slept in a stocking cap, a wool scarf and

Promises of payments were upon your shoulders constantly
but don't forget to entertain 'cause this is your first defense

Four year offense for the devoted type
I may have got an invitation but I wasn't invited
But I thought that this meant something more than broken hearts and new addictions

We'll leave our sins within the carpet twine
Our bodies will dissolve the chemicals in due time

Promises of payments were upon your shoulders constantly
but don't forget to entertain 'cause this is your first defense
Track Name: Drew's Untitled Song (Instrumental)

Track Name: Shaker, Pt. 2 (Bonus Track)
I've been a case until you took me out
Torn and shattered and alone
I found it very easy to get lost
And I try, but I can't get out

There is a place; it's not far from here,
I don't know where, nor can I guide us there
I leave this place
And I try, but I can't get out
And I try, but I can't get out

I look across the bay to faces greeting me
It's hard to look at things you don't want to see
The easy to find are likewise lost
And I try, but I can't get out
