Track Name: Picture of Youth
I tend not to be the most confident of beings,
but to be heard or seen I've got to believe

I'm the picture of youth
I'm going somewhere
I'm one of the few; elite
I'm gonna go far
I'm the brightest of the stars
This I believe I don't believe

I have an image of myself rooted in my brain;
who I think I am.
doubt burrows in my mind, skewing all my thoughts;
showing who I could be
I shriveled up into a mass,
a big neurotic mess,
collapsing on myself.
I'm shaken up enough to think I was such a fool
to ever believe

I'm the picture of youth
I'm going somewhere
I'm one of the few; elite
I'm gonna go far
I'm the brightest of the stars
this I believe I don't believe
Track Name: Sea Legs
I'm sailing through my life
sea legs from the drink
with any ship I take
I always seem to sink

I know better than I should
the ocean between bad and good

I'm chasing a white whale
it's screwing with my brain
I'm looking for some rules
they always seem to change
the ground on which I stand
shifts beneath my feet
I'm looking for some land
but all I spy are seas

I know better than I should
the ocean between bad and good
