Track Name: Come With Us
Do they know?
Of course they don’t
Suspend your worried
eyes on me
We’re almost there
Here we go
the turnstiles
those lonely silver
arms spin all night
Whatever

Humans in a hurry
Don’t you know what time it is?
I don’t know you
Where you going?
Come with us
We’re on our way to better days
and whiskey waterfalls
I don’t know you
But I like you
Come with us

Another night of spider bites
and broken smoke alarms
Can you feel it?
CAN YOU FEEL IT?
COME WITH US!

Yeah it feels so good
Like I told you it would
Oh it feels so good
Like you didn’t know that it could
But it does

A crowded room
it calls to you
and takes you in its
carless arms
A masquerade of hearts and spades
and cups without a home
Plans and wishes
dirty dishes
pile up

Another night of spider bites
and broken smoke alarms
Can you feel it?
CAN YOU FEEL IT?
COME WITH US!

Yeah it feels so good
Like I told you it would
Oh it feels so good
Like you didn’t know that it could
But it does
Track Name: Echo Parade
Capsize in the summertime
you got the best of mine
and we’re off
it’s an echo parade
I gave you a wooden box
covered in polkadots
did it fit?
did it give it away?

What dreams may come
in camera lenses looking on
I’ve seen those
faces in the photos on your wall

But it gets so hard to tell
whether we’ve been here before
when the road is curved ahead
like a cartoon rubber floor
So let’s slip and slide
and sleep together again once more
Yeah it’s a circle affair
it’s a circle affair for sure

I see circles at war in your eyes
cold dilations
old vibrations
I feel patterns alive in the night
repetition
and submission

In the kitchen late at night
waiting for the stove to light
Grab a mug I got from you
fill it with my ginger blues

Capsize in the summertime
you got the best of mine
and we’re off
it’s an echo parade
Track Name: New Waves
Heard you're trying on a new coast
does it fit you like you hoped?
can you slip it off as easy
as the dresses that we broke?
and does it compliment your body
is it tight around your soul?
I bet it's warmer than your tool shed
I'm sure it never gets that cold

Where do you hang your head
if not a pillow in this culdesac

Heard you've got another neighbor
does he know his way around?
Can he navigate the ocean
when it wants to take him down?
And can he hear the way your heart ticks
when it tips and travels back?
a kind of clockwork can he hear it
or is it only you that can?

Where do you hang your head
if not a pillow in this culdesac

Heard you yelling at the water
I heard you curse and call it names
saw it sail into the distance
and then return to you the same
it's such an antiquated rhythm
but can't it carry you away?
Because what else is there to wait for
besides another kind of wave?

My pretty little twisted commitment
be my another kind of wave
(she said I know your name)
Track Name: Little White Pill
Did you hear what they said
this little white pill will solve all your problems

'Cause the wait for the world is a lot
to carry on your shoulders
they said when you were older
you'd know what to do
still the world is colder than they promise you

As the light turns red
and I drive through these streets
with that though in my head

This whole human condition is a lot
to carry on my shoulders
and be a little bolder to ask for a dance
still the world is colder than they promise you

Is this still the same place
where our fathers would lie?
coming to the same ideas as them
we just got different words
and different tunings
and it's getting stranger
to wait for the end

Still I've got time
but no way to control
what it does to my life

When the stars in the universe are bright
in the spaces where they smolder
tonight they're spinning slower
'cause you are around
still the night is colder than they promise you
Track Name: Drive
Two kinds of blue
one way to tell
give it some time
and watch it fall down
Down from above
or up from below
who would of thought
and who ought to know?
With the way it goes on
and the way that it went
I wasn’t around
no, not back then
When numbers were good
and goodbye wasn’t far
from you color TV
and your old fashioned car

Drive
I’ll meet you on the other side
Where you wander in the night
Tell me why you drive
Tell me why you drive
to nowhere

Summer retreat
a weekend away
imagine the scene
quiet and plain
Silence becomes
a permanent tone
loud as a drum
and it rattles my bones

Always on the edge of my mind
keep it together
I’m doing better
Racing from the fear of a drive
in no direction
an old reflection

Corrupted and blurry
by time and by fury
two kinds of blue
what’s it to you?
A natural design
between you and I
let’s go for a drive
I need to know why
Track Name: Old Fashioned
Read every single page
push numbers over names
move to nowhere when it's done
drown in memories and valium

Keep it together for the children

Dance in predicated steps
prove that you can do it best
boast a billion dollar smile
and keep the children in single file

Keep it together for the children

Swallow the chlorine tablets
follow the tardy rabbit
escape loon lake
and come away with me

Is this what you want?
antique debutante
green light looms ahead
lie with me instead
Track Name: Firelight
I know your name now
nut I don’t know how to say it right
and oh what a name you’ve got
it warms me like fire light
Feel for something to stop
from falling apart
I’m trying to start a war
with what I’ve got
Wait for whiskey to wash
clean squash and erase
all negative space so I can
keep you falling

I know your name now
But I don’t know how to say it right
And oh what a name you’ve got
It burns me like firelight

Give me back my tongue
Keep your diamond drum

You know my game now
but you don’t know how to play it right
and oh what a game it is
it feels like a firefight
Take a shot in the dark
a side street caravan
Give a tacit alarm
I told you who I am

I know your name now
But I don’t know how to say it right
And oh what a name you’ve got
It burns me like firelight

Give me back my tongue
Keep your diamond drum

Knew it the whole time
my name
burning in your sky
front seats
fire your weapon
go on
drum on your diamond
Track Name: Late to Work (Bonus Track)
Because the stove is on and keys are lost
even though the kitchen tiles are cold to touch
we know the fire isn't going home
I can be late to work tomorrow

Because we're drunk on drawings that we make
tracing things we did before today
I have a hunch we'll say these were the days...
I can be late to work tomorrow

Because the love in here is loud enough
to wake all of those sleeping people up
and I would never dare to interrupt...
I can be late to work tomorrow
