Track Name: Wilbur By The Sea - Stillness
Now I contradict myself by trying to let go
To will my way out of giving up control
To rest in truth, resign to trust
But the harder that I try the less that I can think at all

And now to filter out all this sound
is more than I can manage
You've found my restless wandering
Can you slow down
it's all I can to just to notice

You're calling out my restless heart
Can you remind it how to listen
I'm looking for a peace beyond what I'm feeling
I can't will it, can I will it into being

And now to filter out all this sound
is more than I can manage
You've found my restless wandering
Can you slow down
Until I can understand it

Can't think my way out of overthinking
Can't make surrender an ascension of the will
It's grown so loud again, it's drowning out
the stillness I'd forgotten
Track Name: Wilbur By The Sea - A Cosmic Conversation
Impose upon a cosmic conversation
All your thoughts, don't force a correlation
Talk until it starts to make sense
I'll be listening still
You won't have to convince me to stay
Until all our former selves decay
And their colors have all washed away
And their words have turned a tired refrain

Bundle up, we'll make it through the winter
I'll cover you up in a blanket and a sweater
We'll offer up all our secret dark spaces
Cover them up and find a hiding place and stay
Until all our former selves decay
And their colors have all washed away
And their words have turned a tired refrain
We'll become what we make

Don't you pull the covers down
Don't you pull the covers down
If you stay then I'll stay

Solider on, you'll make it through the winter
The road you're on leads home to warmer weather
All our lives we've worried about the basics
And sacrificed all we'd rather make
So just stay until all our former selves decay
And their colors have all washed away
And their words have turned a tired refrain
We'll become what we make
Track Name: Wilbur By The Sea - Goldie Goldie
You vowed your life with your kiss of death
And your words offered at your best
But changing ages made you forget
Your same wandering ways win the day again

Goldie Goldie aren't you always frozen
knowing you're far from home
Only holding on til all is over
all is overthrown

Say you hate this place in eight thousand ways
But everywhere's the same
don't you need a deeper change
There's someone else escaping your destination
Your thoughts are cut and paste

You yearn for what is not found
You don't for what is around you
burn the forest for the trees
Your debt was buried in the leaves
