Track Name: Timepiece
Timepiece - Ripple Green
Lyrics By: Joel Parks

Preverse:
La la la la la
Ahahahah

Verse
I’ve been seeing better days
with a new found heart race
she’s a compilation of the sun
at a brisk rotation
yeah, better you than never me
is a phrase worth leaving
cause symphonies don’t sing for free
and the sound is fleeting

Crux:
I’m Making my foothold
within your halo
a new sun dial
a new somebody
with a new someday
you’re just somebody
with an old timepiece
Making my foothold
with your halo
a new sun dial
a new someday
with a new someday

Preverse:
La la la la la
Ahahahah

Verse:
Cause I’ve received a letter laced
with a blue tint lip stain
She’s a constellation on the run
with an ill-persuasion
I’m swapping spit beneath the marquee
on a stippled evening
cause symphonies don’t sing for free
and the sound is fleeting

Bridge:

‘Cause I left the shadows for the day
you are nothing but lines of rays
a pattern of excess three-four times
there is nothing but you and I
I left the shadows for the day
you are nothing but lines of rays
a pattern of an excess three-four times
there is nothing but you and I

Making my foothold
within your halo
a new sun dial
a new somebody
with a new someday

Making my foothold
within your halo
a new sun dial
a new somebody
with a new someday

Taking back my heart
and back my, back my,
and back my

Yes, Taking back my heart
and back my, back my,
and back my

Crux: repeat
Track Name: Making a Man
Making a Man - Ripple Green
Lyrics by Joel Parks

Makin’ a man out of me
yes, you just made a man out of me
when our bodies collide
with silence aside
we relish in every delight

Makin’ a man
Makin’ a man
yes, you just made a man out of me
when our bodies collide
with silence aside
we relish in every
you gotta get heavy
cause heaven is hard
to find

Press yourself against a cushion
yourself is where I’m pushin’
push back and back we’re fallin’
in love, you know

Makin’ a man out of me
well, you just made a man out of me
when our bodies collide
with silence aside
we relish in every delight

You’re making a man
making a man
yes, you just made a man out of me
when our bodies collide
with silence aside
we relish in every
you gotta get heavy
cause heaven is hard
to find
Track Name: Birds
Birds - Ripple Green
Lyrics by Joel Parks

Hold onto what you know
and a sweetie pie
No, I’ll let it go
and bonafi the sky
with the birds
on the highway
Cause you’ve always
heard me say that

I don’t want to ever
feel like I’m forever
I’ve been sleeping
I’ve been sleeping
away
all day

Why don’t you lay me down
on a bed of hay
on the tallest limb
where the tree will sway
Laughing down
at the people
with the looking glass
and the glass half full
Lower lifes
like to lie low
but my my my my my my
there’s more to show
For example, I love you
and there ain’t nothing to lose
except the view




I don’t want to ever
feel like
I’m forever
I’ve been sleeping
Wait…
and hold me with your wings
But I can’t repeat
Oh, any one day
in the last ten years
and that’s okay
I’ve been sleeping
I’ve been sleeping
I’ve been sleeping
I’ve been sleeping
away…
all day
Track Name: Marble Arch
Marble Arch - Ripple Green
Lyrics by Joel Parks

You defy the marble arch
You defy the marble arch
you know the soul I’m searching
we’re hurting in the middle

Make it all beneath the stars
make it all and take what’s ours
you know the soul I’m searching
we’re hurting in the middle

Laying down all of my money
here’ the stakes can you take that from me
I know you’re nervous
but what I really want is how to hunt a blindfold

Take it off take it off my honey
too soon when the room gets sunny now
I know you’re nervous
but what I really want is how to hunt a blindfold

You defy the marble arch
You defy the marble arch
you know the soul I’m searching
we’re hurting in the middle

Make it all beneath the stars
make it all and take what’s ours
you know the soul I’m searching
we’re hurting in the middle

Laying down all of my money
here’ the stakes can you take that from me
I know you’re nervous
but what I really want is how to hunt a blindfold

Take it off take it off my honey
too soon when the room gets sunny now
I know you’re nervous
but what I really want is how to hunt a blindfold
now take it off again and then we can all behold
