Track Name: An Idea
I have an idea that can make a million bucks
If you don’t mind a million dirty looks
But if you shrivel away
I’ll hunt you down and eat your face
Once I’m past the taste
You’re done
I have an idea that’s sure to get us killed
‘f the idea doesn’t, the execution will
But if you dare to bail
On me I’ll have you tailed
And once I catch up to you
You’re done
But if you shrivel away
I’ll hunt you down and eat your face
Once I’m past the taste
You’re done
Track Name: A Person
How do I put my skin back on?
How do you tell lies and carry on?
Like nothing really matters anyway
Like this could be the best or the worst day
I don’t want to be
A person of integrity
I don’t, I really don’t
How do I put my skin back on?
How do you tell lies and carry on?
Track Name: A Finally-Helpful Illness
After so many nights
Of poking you in the sides
And scratching you on your thighs
And keeping you in my eyes
Like a finally-helpful illness
I finally let you go
Intentionally let my guard down
Eventually let you go
I’m not saying I’m great
Or that this can make
Up for thousands of days
Of me-inflicted pain
But like a finally-helpful illness
I finally let you go
Intentionally let my guard down
Eventually let you go
But you, you, you, stayed with me
Yeah you, you, you, wouldn’t leave
Like a finally-helpful illness
I tried let you go
Intentionally let my guard down
I really tried to let you go
Track Name: All Right
Hoping and praying
Pulling and waiting
For everything to be all right
Seems unlikely, is it likely
For everything to be all right
Track Name: A Place
This’ll last—forever in my head
I’ll play it back—if I must
I’ll find a place for you in my thoughts
This’ll last—forever in my head
I’ll play it back—for you
I’ll find a place between hope and hate
You’re new to my hands, and I’m trying not to think
But between the bad and good lies exactly what I miss, and I think too much
This’ll last—forever in my head
I’ll play it back—again and again
I’ll find a place where hopefully I forget
This’ll last—forever in my head
I’ll play it back—tonight
I’ll find a place for the beautiful, dying leaves
Track Name: A Mistake
Walking through the park the other day
Made a mistake I really shouldn’t make
Looked at her and her
And didn’t just go on my way
I made a mistake in the park the other day…
On my break at work the other day
Made a mistake I really shouldn’t make
I sat with Accounting Kate
I let things escalate
I made a mistake at work the other day…
Boston on the half-road to the Bay
Kicking clouds of everything on grey
Done with Accounting Kate
And on to Marketing Mae
I made a mistake or two along the way
Track Name: Another Day
so what If I got wet?
at least the rain is gone
little I expect?
Just a kiss 'n I'll go home
can see it, far in the distance
I see the mall, there's no mistake
I can travel further more
just so I can see you there
See you another...day!
glad your boss has left?
perhaps I'll stay a little longer knowing that we're alone
can see it, far in the distance
I see it all, is quite a place
I can travel further more
to steal a kiss, a kiss from you
Track Name: A Thing
Smile, smile
Smile inside
Smile with me
We’re both alive
For now, for now
For not for good
If one must go
You know you should
You won’t feel a thing, girl
No, you won’t feel a thing
I’ll breathe into your nostrils
And, you won’t feel a thing
I saw the curls in
Yellow and brown
I felt the need to
Drown in your arms
A careful footprint
On the serpent’s head
Carefully crush un-
‘til he’s dead well
You won’t feel a thing, girl
No, you won’t feel a thing
I’ll give you life anew, girl
And, you won’t feel a thing
Betty, I promise
You’ll barely recall
The bitter pills
You take at all now
Now, throw your head back
And swallow hard
You don’t need water
On the farm
Track Name: A Time
There was a time when all this made sense
When nothing we said strengthened a fence
But now, you barely can say hello
Without, me jumping down your throat
There was a time when each of your words
Spun in my head to sing like the birds
But now, you barely can say hello
Without, me jumping down your throat
But now, you barely can say hello
Without, me jumping down your throat
And now, anytime you say goodbye
Could it be the last time?
Track Name: A Long Line
My friend from the DMV
Made an appearance on TV
And, there’s what she said and what she meant
And what she meant was directed directly at me
She said, there may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
I hope you’re willing to wait
I hope you’re willing to wait
I’ll make it worth your wait
If not, just get on with your day
Get on with your day
There may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
There may be a long line to see me
Track Name: An Animal
Bouncing, leaping, happy. Energetic, good.
No way we should stop her, even if we could
As we left for grandma’s we put her in the crate
It’s not what we imagine, for an animal it’s great
Oh no, not again she’ll be here all alone
Shaking, barking, at least until we’re home
It’s not like that at all, being in her crate
It’s not what we imagine, for an animal it’s great
As we left for grandma’s we put her in the crate
It’s not what we imagine, for an animal it’s great
Track Name: When to Go
Hold me down
And take what’s yours
I’ve really learned how
To walk the Earth
Hold me close
And make it worse
I wanna be a part of
Every curse
And I know exactly when to go
Yeah I know exactly when to go
I tell the truth
I tell a lie
I can’t impress you
To save my life
Lift me up
To the sky
There’s one more reason
To let me die
And I know exactly when to go
