Track Name: American C.R.E.A.M.
carried off in a wheelbarrow i exited the scene
there is guilt that burns in me like a lake of lit gasoline

so you can
break the walls
break the floor
i don't care anymore
i'm too naked to scream

take my cards
take my keys
take my home address too
my american c.r.e.a.m.

beaten into a comatose by single file lies
pasting all of my coupons to a bleeding child's eyes

so you can
break the walls
break the floor
i don't care anymore
i'm too naked to scream

it's in my blood
Track Name: Eternity
all things equal you are not
hydrant's water when it's hot
wilderness reaching out to me
the pale empress of a thousand armies

i saw you cakewalk down the aisle at the convenient store
and deny all the charges that the police booked you for
i am an honest man
i am an honest

i'm the book bound by your hand
you're the glass burned from the sand
i'm an urchin in your sea
you're to whom all of the sad whales sing

i saw you cakewalk down the aisle at the convenience store
and deny all the charges that the police booked you for
i am an honest man
Track Name: Garbage Trees
i want to make a circle back
you'll never leave the cellar still in tact
i'm killing off every single lane
all hail to the new caesar with no name

we can gather paper planes
our garbage trees we sell and recreate
plant them in our precious seas
forget it all and shake it off with me

i bring all my friends way down
a regency that pays itself in frowns
make me lie all by myself
a list of my denials would do me well

we can gather paper planes
our garbage trees we sell and recreate
plant them in our precious seas
forget it all and shake it off with me
shake it off

you should be mad
why are you so mad?
you're so mad
why are you so mad?
we're so mad
why are you so mad?
we're so mad
why are you so mad?
Track Name: Want!
wakes in the evening
and she crawls out of bed
and she picks up her cell phone
and i miss you it says
and she paces and wonders
why it enters her mind
if she'll be this time next year
only marching for dimes
and her sister in the doorway
says to her, 'there you are,
and why have you been staying
so late at the bar.'

she wants to be

i know you like to dance all night
but you really should watch
where you're going sometimes and
i know you want your
peace of mind
but you really don't have to take from mine

and it creeps in her armoir
and it sneaks to her head
all the visions, and prisons,
and her face dressed in red
and the bells of the cathedral
start to sound down the block
and her sister calls a man to
come and change all the locks

she wants to be

i know you like to dance all night
but you really should watch
where you're going sometimes and
i know you want your
peace of mind
but you really don't have to take from mine

it's like an old beatles song
except she's not looking for fun
it's like an old beatles song
but she's just not looking for fun

she wants to be

i know you like to dance all night
but you really should watch
where you're going sometimes and
i know you want your
peace of mind
but you really don't have to take from mine
Track Name: Not Too Sure
the bold projections in your head
make deep impressions in my bed
and all the great plans that you made
are faded glories on a windswept plain
and brown-lit sunsets that make you cry
will wipe that plaster from under your eye
the world to come can start anew
but legacies die and so will you

the camps are growing, the jails are full
the crowd moves onwards, it's starting to pull
your tower crumbles into the sea
and mice climb down to mingle with me
and clocks tick backwards, the seconds limp
to listen loudly as the record skips
this pretty picture is sublime
i wish i could view it all the time
Track Name: Falling
i'll ignore you
if i have to
i don't want to see your face
like that anymore
i'm no angel
i'm no saint
this boy he needs saving too

i'm falling

i know jesus
i drank his blood
his blood it was better
than any preacher ever was
and i'm no painter
no i can't paint
so please paint it red for me

i'm falling

cavern's wide and cavern's deep
built a home inside your teeth
your teeth

i'm falling
Track Name: Stay
I'm coming down
to meet you at the station
and no
I won't ask
but it's your time that you're wasting
and if I had my way
you'd be here every weekend
but i guess
it's okay
I just want you stay

And if I
would have known
it would all go to shit
then I would have come
much earlier to see it
and dipped
in a hand
to rub you on the forehead
but I guess it's okay
as long as you will stay

And when
we're alone
I'll kiss you in the valley
and we'll dance in the field
where the tall grass brushes our knees
and we’ll lay
on the ground
and look up at the sky
and we’ll know it's okay
because we both can stay
Track Name: Wandering No More
I was floating away,
you caught me by surprise.
You knew just what to say,
you fed me bread and wine.

I sold all of my summer clothes,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.

You were fixing a car,
to sail cross the land.
I was chasing a star,
getting drawn by your hand.

I sold all of my winter clothes,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.

Hours turn into days,
with you by my side.
You were leading the way,
I was there for the ride.

I sold everything I own,
been saving for years
to sail from the coast,
but you caught me
and showed me what I needed most
and I'm not wandering no more.
Track Name: Want Me Too
i'll be who you want me to be
turn me into something cheap
i'll walk straight home after school
be your rainy april fool

cuz i want you
i want you
i want you to want me too

cheers to all the mini gods
prophets born in gravitas
i've been fooled twice and again
flowers dying that i send

but i want you
i want you
i want you to want me too

am i beautiful?
Track Name: Rainforest Café
there's a time,
and place,
for happiness.
when the fall,
and grace,
make one.
and the very trace
is lost.
and the fall,
says it all.
and the rain keeps falling,
faster,
faster all the time.
and the words melt like leaves,
in winter,
winter all the time.
