Track Name: Walking Into Me
This is what I say to you
When hopelessly in tune with what I want
I was into that
And you found out so fast

As clear as the next day will come
In spite of all this great hostility
Walking into you
Was the best thing I could do

And what is left is deep regret
Searching for the least weight on my mind
When it revealed unto me
Was the last of you I'd ever see

That's when I felt the undertow
Our whole life is just a memory
Of people we once knew and are gone
And people that stay with you so long

So put it underneath your belt
Tighten up another notch
And separate your business
Keep it how you like it

If you don't you'll be paralyzed
Swept away by one stroke
By what will happen to your life
Cause nothing stays the same
Track Name: You Were Right
Illuminate me when you need it
Opposites attract don't you know
I was in the current when the creek hit my flow
And wont you stop your hanging around while the coffee's getting warm
Happiness is it so keep it close when it's around

You try you try why don't you hurry up
It's always something
It's all worth something
I don't believe you when you say you were right

Don't forget me when you've made it
Don't forget we celebrated
Your birthday and New Years Eve
There was so much to talk about back then
I was the one who apologized for being honest from the start
I was on the upward stride when the moon hit my tide

You try you try why don't you hurry up
It's always something
It's all worth something
I don't believe you when you say you were right

Wont you stop your hanging around while the coffee's getting warm
Happiness is it so keep it close when its around

You try you try why don't you hurry up
It's always something
It's all worth something
I don't believe you when you say you were right
Track Name: Again Again
I can never say you're wrong
It's as easy as off and on
You know it's true
Maybe I'm half asleep
It wouldn't even take a week
To convince you
But things are not like that
And there is no contract
Yet I can smell your hair still from the last time you were here
Perhaps what's left of me
Is invisible twice a week
From noon til three

So I will sing until the mistake
Reaches fingers down my throat
Will the image last forever
Or shrink into a mote
And I will dream like a nightmare
I will laugh until you cry
And all these sticky situations
Did they help make up your mind?


Holding back to you
Holding back is something I can't do
And each time when I looked
Each time when I looked it stayed the same
You're already gone
But I can't help but call
And time drips like molasses from your hair onto your glasses
It's okay to me
But my thoughts are like the breeze
That flow up and down the trees in through your hair into my lungs

So I can sing until the mistake
Reaches fingers down my throat
Will the image lasts forever
Or let shrink into a mote
If I could dream like a nightmare
I will laugh until you cry
And all these sticky situations
Did they help make up your mind?
Track Name: No Time For Talk
Their eyes turn down
And the voices rise right up
My father frowns
I get that feeling in my gut
I've been good
But it's never been good enough
My ego low
I get that feeling I have been wrong

They don't know you
They don't like the way you talk
They don't like you
They don't like the way you talk
To me

They tried all night
To talk about the things we've done
My mother sighs
For fear of what we'll become
"There's evil people
In little houses
with evil hopes
Of little blouses"

They don't know you
They don't like the way you talk
They don't like you
They don't like the way you talk...

To all of the people
That you love, but wish would go
In the garden of Eden
It's time to bite the hand you've known

Feel the love around your throat
Fill your lungs, they'll stop to blow
Feel the blood rush from your toes
Feel the love

All it takes is time

They don't know you
They don't like the way you talk
They don't like you
They don't like the way you talk

Feel the love around your throat
Fill your lungs, they'll stop to blow
Watch your eyelids stop the show
Feel the love

Feel the love around your throat
Fill your lungs: they'll stop to blow
Feel your heartbeat start to slow
Feel the love

All it takes is time
Track Name: I Don't Know
I don't know
If I could last forever
On this earth
That revolves around a sun that's lost
In a sea of deeper blackness
Sitting on
What the greatest minds have yet to grasp
And I'd like to talk about it
To you
But I don't know where I would start
When I don't know

When I saw smoke
Coming out of your ears i could cry
The hue of red your complexion takes is startling at first
If I could relieve you
Would not think twice
To lift the load that holds your hand
Into the mouth of madness
It's deep inside
But anything can happen to
You and me tonight
I want you by my side
Tonight

I have the world
Inside the girl
Holding my hand
Isn't it grand
Each eye was blind
Deep in the sun
My mind is clear
When you are near
I was past the the point of recognition
You were up high
High in the sky
It filled my mind
And it fit me right
I saw the birds
Flying round your skirt
I saw the answers
I saw the words
Track Name: So I Took You
So I took you to the house

And sat you down up on the couch

You said "I don't know what to do" 

"Darling that's alright; we go to the roof"

So I took you to the stars
Floating up above the yard
You said "I don't know just what to believe"
"Darling that's alright; we go to the sea"

So I took you to the beach
And buried sand up to your knees
You said "I don't know just where to start"
"Darling that's alright; we go to the car"

So I took you into town
We watched the people rush around
You said "I don't know where to go"
"Darling that's alright, we go down below"

So I took you to the chair
You bumped your head coming down the stairs
You said, "I don't know just where I've been"
"Darling that's alright, this is the end."

So I took you with a knife
And watched your eyes fight for life
You said, "I wish I just learned to love---"
Track Name: Brains
I don't know your feelings on the brain
Are they lost in paper and are you the same?
Do you try your hardest in the night?
She'll never tell you but you'll make her lie
In outer space with no breath left to waste
They think you're lost; It's a real big place
Drag your lonesome down to the store
For groceries, then spill the milk on the floor

I don't know the time of day,
or the how, of how it comes,
But it'll soon be on the way,
or on the run

Pick a room and hope that you are first
Wait it out till morning
Smell the blood on your shirt
All your friends they nod and push and shove
Go and lend her your lips
And hope that it's enough
Oh my brain is working overtime
Running round the cogs
Keeping them in line
I don't know your feelings on my thoughts
I am drunk, but still not in love

I don't know the time of day,
or the how, of how it comes,
But it'll soon be on the way,
or on the run

I don't know you,
But I'll listen
To all the muddled
Talk of the weight of the world.
I don't know you, but I'd like to
Think of all the thoughts
We would think (if we were to)

I don't know your feelings on the brain
Are they lost in paper and are you the same?
I don't know your feelings on my thoughts
I am drunk, but still not in love

I don't know the time of day,
or the how, of how it comes,
But it'll soon be on the way,
or on the run

I don't know your feelings on the brain
Track Name: Not The One
Circumstantial evidence
Was enough to convict her dad
When she was young she lost her way
In the local grocery store
She came home with a bloody nose
When she stood up to
The tallest girl
And if innocent 'til proven wrong
She'll grow up to be
A movie star
Track Name: There Will Be Bones
All of the time you need
Is nailed up on the wall
Break your pink pig on the shelf
Drink to your health
She let it slip right off her tongue
And fall to the floor
She told me that she loved me
I crumbled

You'll wait too long
Then it's gone
It's all could you do
But you won't
Look low
You're better off
You'll lead a better life
I know

Now I'm frightened
Of what's on the table
On your doorstep
On my shoulder

It's all your hopes
In lightning bolts

All the time you knew
What we all could do
All the time you knew

All these things will come to you
Sons and daughters of the god of the youth
In a tiny table town we hold the proof

We've known each other
For too many years
And now we're on the brink
I will take the time we spent
And put it in a jar
I'm making art now, so you know
There might be room for you

Let off your shoes
Let them breathe
Might find a use
For your arm, or leg
They're better off
Resting on the wall

I see femur
I see a sternum
I see you as god on the table

Wine and robes
Will break your bones

All the time we knew
What we'd do with you
All the time we knew

All these things will come to you
Songs and daughters of the god of the youth
In a tiny table town we hold the proof
Track Name: Should Not Have Come To This
Congratulations are in store
And I'd like to tell you more
But our life is not like this
Nor is it a waste of time
Pictures are the worst
Adulation's coming next
Only physical pain beats that
How do I put up with it
Serve me if you must
Just don't draw a scene to us
I used to never care this much
Oh a drag it is to grow

Oh I'd carry that weight
And I'd wait to be late
Being first is the worst
If you don't know your host
Drink a drink

Should have called before
I even opened my front door
Now all my fears have come true
I don't even recognize a face
Pour another drink
Check my phone before I think
Just pretend have another sip
I should not have come to this
Preparations to sneak out
Before anyone seeks out
If I'm invited at all
Oh I know I can not wait

Oh I'd carry that weight
And I'd wait to be late
Being first is the worst
And I don't know your name
Drink a drink

In my mind you were perverse
Running wildly to your purse
Shiny was a good contrast
To the features of your clothes
Resting on your hips
Like my very first solar eclipse
It hurt my eyes but I could not resist
Oh the vision of your face
Stood out like a glitch
But I could not conceal my mirth
And those green eyes rest on me
Ahahaha just pretend

Oh I walked straight into this
And no one even cares
Except now I have your gaze
And it erases my face
C'est la vie
C'est la vie
Track Name: Circles And Carousels
I'll try hard not to repeat myself
But I'm drawing circles in my mind
And they all look like carousels
With riders racing for the line

I've all but given up
On every last one
They're coming 'round the bend
And off they go again

I see wheels
With no roads
I see houses
Filled with ghosts
I watch the news
See only crime
I hear the song
But not the rhyme

I've long since given up the war
If there's someone still keeping score
Track Name: Summerdays
It's hard to think of all we've done
All our parts and places we've come from and left
Give up or it'll all get stuck in your head and brain
It'll drive you up the wall
Suddenly we've all grown ten feet
Taller than my building blocks towering up
It's such a waste to blame the rain

It's so peculiar
The lines we're forming
Our parts performing

Maybe I'm much too young
To break the law, to buy a gun,
On Summerdays
If I had a knife to cut
I'd peel you back and take you cuffed
To Summerdays
and summer ways
Can't we just watch the news
And let them tell us just what to do
Through radio-waves
On Summerdays

It's so peculiar
The lines we're forming
Our parts performing

Can't we just watch the news
And let them tell us just what to do
Through radio-waves
On Summerdays
Days we've lost and left our beds
To think of all the books we haven't read


It's so peculiar
The lines we're forming
Our parts performing
I learned a long time ago
And now we're folding
All the time we thought we were alone
