it's then that i realize
(Em Am D7)
i can't see a thing but your eyes
(G C Am C)
and really that's just not enough
i'm missing the important stuff
i'm letting the world go by
(Em Am D7)
and i can't see a thing but your eyes
(G C Am C, G C Am C, G C Am C, Em B7)

Track Name: I'm Doing Everything [FREE SONG]
(Em C Em C)
(Am G)
get a hold of everything and make it right
cuz right now it's upside down
take my flesh and take my bone they're never right
they're always inside out
dip my spine
in turpentine
make your name
rhyme with mine
cuz everyday you see them fade more and more
soon they'll rest with dust
and i don't mind but they're not mine they're his and yours
memories and rust
(Em C Em C)
i'm doing everything
(Am G)
here and there and everywhere a nip and tuck
i'm carrying the weight
fixing this improving that it's never done
another patch and paint
and you've gone to black thunder
and i just wonder why
i kinda want to bellyache but never can
cuz your belly truly aches
so back and forth and up and down no time to stand
i give all you can take
(Em C Em C)
i'm doing everything
wrong
(Am G)
i smile while i clench my teeth and bite my tongue
still you don't smile at all
i smile while i feel a frown and swallow tears
still you don't smile at all
(Em C Em C)
i'm doing everything
wrong
Track Name: Everything Seems Like It's Slowing Down (Yux Crux Dux)
everything seems like it's slowing down
it's dark and i can't see myself or anyone around me
and i think i'm gonna die soon
i think i'm ready for it to end
i'm a child again
it's dark and i think i'm gonna die soon
she's beautiful
she's beautiful
everything seems like it's slowing down
makes me feel free

Track Name: Sparrows Lucidly
(Am C G Em, Am C G)
You've built a nest, a modest mess
Uncluttered thoughts are filled with happiness
They call you small, they call you lewd
Like they're high and mighty, I just call 'em rude
(Am C, Am C, Am G, Am Em)
And I hear, you whisper of faith
Humility, in my lucid state...
And I know, as real as it seems
That you appear, only in my sweetest dreams...
(Am C G Em, Am C G)
Catch my soul, when I die
To get to heaven, I'll hitch a ride
So fix your nest, your modest mess
And prepare to fly me to happiness
(Am C, Am C, Am G, Am Em)
And I hear, you whisper of faith
Humility, in my lucid state...
And I know, as real as it seems
That you appear, only in my sweetest dreams...
Track Name: Lonely Lonely (Yux Crux Troy)
(Danse Russe by William Carlos Williams)
if when my wife is sleeping
and the baby and kathleen
are sleeping
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,--
if i in my north room
dance naked, grotesquely
before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly to myself:
"i am lonely, lonely.
i was born to be lonely,
i am best so!"
If I admire my arms, my face,
my shoulders, flanks, buttocks
against the yellow drawn shades,--
who shall say i am not
the happy genius of my household?
"i am lonely, lonely.
i was born to be lonely,
i am best so!"

Track Name: Orbital Pains
(Am Em, Am C G, Am Em, Am C G Am Em Am Em)
there they are again
lookin' in on my soul
i'm alive again
despite attempts to just let go
there they are again
making noise across my lawn
i can't just sit here still
what can i do to make 'em gone
there they are again
the orbital pains i've talked about
they stretch down to my toes
recurring hurt recurring doubt

Track Name: The Jay Or The Sparrow
(F G C, F G C Am)

you can't go back once you're gone
(F G C, F G C Am)

or which one has the tastiest meat
look around to see your different fates
if you already think you're free, you'll never escape
don't even try it's far too late
