Track Name: If You're Gonna Give Me Something I Can't Groove To
losing months in line to sell, you say ghost I say might as well
oh we're tippin a tippin a tippin a tippin a toe
rhythm lost but not forgotten
now with all these years for sale, things are looking silver cold
trippin the trippin the trippin the trippin the road
sense of time has since been forgotten
oh we're tippin a tippin a tippin a tippin a toe
sense of time is long forgotten
Track Name: The Brief Case
dive in camera, you can feel the laughter
deep inside machines, a motion captured
the creeps are creeping with their eyes, we're all shrinking in size
all I wanted was the squeeze, captive in the breeze my little freeze
hand held, soft-shelled, I
no one ever told you you were the brief case
fast as fire but left you standing in a cold place
the images have taken town, the fields have all turned brown
head is running like the train, you need an ice pack for your rotating brain
leave me be and let me grow
my memory will take it slow
Track Name: I Have My Wing Clip
stills synthesized, days in the eyes
ties living inwards, lies wearing skin
in lines crystallized, birds going by
you're so cool
gears dance with gears, streams cover ears
we're getting too loud, scream minus mouths
Track Name: I'm Ashamed
brave with a bad alarm, take me to the basement, please me
I'm in need, release, girl makes me a stupid star
I'm ashamed of everything that I do
I am losing you in this space I'm turning into
i'm a good ghost, show me the engine room please
me in fear, repeat, somebody that time could kill
I'm ashamed of everything that I do
I am losing you in this space I'm turning into
there are days, so happy in the sunshine
but we're blind blind blind blind, lights have made us all blind
I'm ashamed
Track Name: Little Ones
I know where you're going, I see where you land
everyone can hear you, no one understands
there are big ones and there are little ones
I have all the numbers, you can do the math
no one under covers, no one in a mask
I want to go outside, I want to go outside
I see where you're hiding, I know where you are
I could never catch you, shooting on a star
there are big one and there are little ones
Track Name: Smelly Red Heart
breaker, breaking all the thoughts that make her
these days never flip the nights, phaser
it is mad luck, badder than the air you see through
if you stand up, I'll be no one to stand near you
brain ace shooting out through my headache
I'm mid-race, lolli-lapped in the first place
rain child clinging to my smelly red heart
breaker, breaking all my bad thoughts apart
these days never flip nights, phaser
Track Name: Darn
stuck out for later, dirty with the dishes
out on the weekend fishing for the killer sound
as for the children, daddy is the rock star
they're on the island, never gonna fly far
this operation pulling all the teeth out like I'm falling out of you
joke's on the pay phone, never gonna listen
short in the dark you know you're gonna pitch in to
as for the children, daddy is the rock star
this flying island never gonna fly far
look for the mommy cooking in the kitchen
fell for the back beat, stupid superstition
this operation pulling all the teeth out like I'm falling out of you
Track Name: Spaceman Hush
face, out of space, lost control of legs
riding on nothing's back
too soon to tell, top of the swell
our front row seats shake fruit, dead meat
five private eyes drifting from the ship
better luck next time spaceman (false alarm)
butt brains will ride a nothing's back
lay back, see stars in nice warm mud
I can give fucks about everything
trust to combust, could you pull the cord?
better luck next time spaceman (false alarm)
Track Name: Bolo
where you go
where you going?
replay, puzzling the pieces of your day
sunshine finds the ones that intersected mine
oh soft-serve, did you ever work up to your nerve?
you cruel things, kept your puppet hanging off of string
where you go
where you going?
Track Name: Chives
you can see surprise, star eyes
some other planet, you, I
living for the day
don't stray too far from the island, some say
patterns in the eyes, headskies
some other planet, you, I
Track Name: Our Girl
binary to my brain, it's a love that you can borrow
we bought a dog and named her "no trust until tomorrow"
our girl could help us rearrange the couches in my head
could feel the warm reflected light that seeps into our bed
her joke is almost over but our laughing's just the start
we could never find a new friend to replace her in our hearts
she had pictures in her eyes, projections in her arms
now her broken legs give me the binary slideshow alarms
Track Name: Turn Into a Flashlight
good dream on a bad screen, ticket saved money dead
you're high art sweet tart, like the holes in a head
here's a bad note, shut throat, put me back in the bowl
if you shoot me down, I'll get lost inside the drainpipes
turning out lights
brave hearts, soul charts, kids go off in the night
it's too far with no car, and I won't walk without light
there's no crown, its straight down, we get lost now, out of town
we slip and slide the road, never find a single toe hold
oh you thing in the blue, when I signal you, you will turn into a flashlight
king in the night
Track Name: Go Go Go Go Go
stuck in a fissure in the teeth
I got a little time to feel the snow that's on my feet
I will face you I will try to drive you back
why you gotta go wrong in all these little rat attacks?
they go
I go "boom" when I see me in retreat
it's a little late to be frustrated enemy
so I go "snow, I'm trying to go to sleep, my man
I won't look out the window again
I can't tell one hand from the other
I can't tell you, I can't tell one hand from the other
I get a little tangled up inside of another
I can't tell you, I can't tell one hand from the other
I won't tell
stuck in my middle fissure dream
I got a little gravel from the snow that's on my street
I will trace you, I will try to light the way
but I gotta gotta go go go go go, I'm going away
I'm going away I'm going away I'm going away
Track Name: Rock and Roll Away from the Sea
like printer's ink on everything
this is the last time I will see you
we are all so under cover
you had no clue
rock and roll away from the sea
what do you know? what else do you know
what do you know? do you know what else?
I can't see or hear a thing (so much sand, we should have gone to)
north carolina
I am you, you are me to (I can't feel your arms around me)
(so much land, we should have gone to) (I can't see or hear a thing)
north carolina
Track Name: We Shall See Shells
the day I saw you cross your arms
I could smell the burning air, I could almost see the stars
slow at the start, escalator
you go for the body, I'll go for the head
keep your children free, I won't ring the bell
even if you let me I wouldn't ever tell
dreaming in a false hope's arms
rocking in to steal a kiss, rolling away with alarms
if this is real, escalator
started at the top and now I'm heading down
we are all so underground it's sick
so grab your magnet quick, make a sticker stick
twitchy as the rich bitch driving in my car back to where you are
she says it's never ever too far
we shall see the shells
Track Name: Still Remembered Lifes
bloated, metal throated
fits right into the picture, fits right into the picture
we float all around
fits right into the picture, fits right into the picture
you'll never touch the ground
you fit right into the picture
I still don't understand you, but I remember
Track Name: Dessert You
this is breaking news, peekin a boo
we're so into you, we're gonna do
things are just like clockwork
going too far, you shoot just like you shoot
dancing for you, please become the magnet
stars in sockets stuck in the atlantic
you fell where you fell, at least between the walls
stumble and call
I will dessert you after I make you dinner
Track Name: Back to Barge
faces on the side all painted blue
all one by one and dying
metal throated stinking birds that hang you in the wall
singing songs you like to sing and orbiting around the cockswing
money
you can screen me if you really want to stop
I don't, we've gone to gold
lights turn on on air conditioned stairs down into temperatures
please stay out of the basement though it drives you up the wall
find a fragment of a friend and chew it with your pretty eyes
honey you can screen me if you really want to stop
I don't
Track Name: Tunnelize
tunnel eyes never die, far away and closed in thought, you and I
brief goodbyes will be heard, you can almost see the time, early bird
wars with words lining halls in my house
I still die just for your eye, cat and mouse
real lives burned in arms inside that car
you can smell them more than see them multiply
if you get the timing right no one will ever know you
if you get the timing right
Track Name: Only5hours
here in the dome, we're all but alone, isolation, comfort zone
we can see through walls but we're still facing walls
we look through the reflections, we ID the real light
we make lightning rods at night
blues for jokes, blues for scars, blues for trips in other's cars
cheers to never getting far
feet on floors that never walk, this conveyor won't step off
ask to stop but cannot stop
home in the sky means all but goodbye, gone to space, no time to cry
we'll all burn when it gets cold
we'll crawl through the archives, we'll ID the real light
we'll make steering wheels tonight
blues for jokes, blues for scars, blues for trips in other's cars
cheers to never getting far
feet on floors that never walk, this conveyor won't step off
ask to stop but cannot stop
