Track Name: Postcards
Some awning on the office, some railroad on the sheet
Those gestures on a postcard are feel to swat my feet
This loose endanger bottom, elastic fall concrete
Pearly Jesus morning, I’ve forgotten how to see

But maybe you want me as a whole
Maybe you

I’ll have another whiskey, I’ll have another tea
Some claustrophobic city, raining onto me
My drifting yellow eyelids, my sliding purple teeth
My soft electric motion, my silhouette shines free

Imagine run unending, I wait and want to die
Dishevel poppy morning, hungover through the sky
Unbroken brassy bridle filling bottle halfway high
I wait and want forever, I wish you’d watch me cry

I’m not much more to love now, evaporated dry
Forgive the seeds I planted, invasive long and shy
I’m turning switching trainwise in no one’s secret eye
Forgive me if I bother, trampoline and try

But maybe you want me as a whole
Track Name: Candles In Colors
I remember the sand and the candles in colors my darling
And I wish I could be all the things that you want me to be

And I know what I want is so hard to accompany darling
And I know I’m a spot on the ocean that’s covered in trees
And I know that it’s hard to wake up all alone now, my darling
And I know what I want is an apple that's covered in bees

I remember the sand and the candles in colors my darling
And I wish I could be all the things that you want me to be

And I know that my words can forsake me some hours in darkness
And I know that the mask of forever is scary to be
Like a small unmarked path that divides in the middle my darling
Never quite sure if you’re circling slowly to me

And you stare at me fondly, I run in the distance my darling
And I’m stuck on a path that’s as wet as a bone on the sea
And you’re lost in a beach and I’m running me wild like starlight
And you smile I know as you look towards the sun where we’ll be

And the talons of darkness can drop like the wind without warning
And I’m running too fast hoping I am the one you can see
Track Name: Fall Apart
Sideways unlucky door
I’m locked in a shrine
Says that I’ll always go
What it means to be fine

And I might prefer to tear
All the letters I sign
You know that I might forebear
Anything that is mine

But I could be anywhere
And I could be fine
The daffodils in your hair
Straight as a vine
We could be debonair
Ignore all the signs
We could be anywhere

Centennial country fair
Of muffins and wine
I like to hold you there
At a quarter to nine

Look at our residue
Drinking turpentine
I’ll always remember you
Were never on time

But I could be anywhere
And I could be fine
I could be in your hair
Like a radio line
We could be debonair
Ignore all the signs
We could be anywhere

Listen for echoes back
To know if I’m trying
Watching you float away
And kept what was mine

You’ll fly away again
To endlessly find
You’ll run away and then
I’ll forget that you’re mine

But I could be anywhere
And I could be fine
Night from the daytime blue
We’re just trailing behind
Daffodil cigarettes
Never hurt by design

And if we never go nowhere
I’ll keep on this line
And if we go everywhere
Then we’ll never arrive
And I’ll never reconcile
These thoughts in my mind
They’re never worth my while
These endless designs

Darling there’s no one there
We could be any time
Darling I’ll always fail
To make the pages align

We could just fall apart
And you could be mine
Track Name: Grow
Part 1: All Apart

1A.
Music feels like games we play
And now I know the rules

You ran the chord to light you up
And love to keep you cool

I could be a plumber
If I’d had such faith in art

I’m such an absolutist
Cause the rest is all so bland

1B.
We slip intro atrocity
And fill our mouths with sand
Just not to be you

My eyes are open to live in streetlights
Could someone ever believe
I loved you too soon

For half the night we could be together
For half the night we could blow a hole
On the moon

1C.
I always thought we’d grow up together
Now maybe we’ll grow all apart
And that’s okay too

I always wanted to live together
I always wanted your eyes
To shine on the moon

I close my eyes where we’ll be together
And baby we do fall apart
To find ourselves new

You always said we’d throw up together
And maybe we’ll never know art
And is that okay too?

1D.
I was alright where we hid together
I wish that being in love was
Something to do

I was alright when we hid together
From knowing we could have love
For somebody new

I was alright where we hid together
From knowing that we forgot the things
That we knew

1E.
My bearded uncle is taking pictures
Faking days and a microscopic
Platoon

The bourbon stank in the room together
My pockets dragged and your eyelids
Started to swoon

I’m up all night like a rolling over
Thick with coffee that’s always
Pouring too soon

And blow the smoke in your open eyes
My teeth will rot and your tears
Will fall on the moon

I start to scream where we fall together
You rush my eyes and you push a pen
In the wound

You call me loud when I call you quiet
I’ll scream too much til my words
Alight on the moon

1F.
I’ll never change when I'm all afraid
Of something as scary as losing
What I had in you

I always thought you were in the middle
Before my hand and beneath the smoke
In my room

We’re up all night and we’re all hung over
And there’s just so much
Growing up to do

We smoked all night and we’re all hung over
We ran it right and we thought
About it too soon

We’re up all night and we’re all hung over
We loved too much and we fought
About it too soon


Part 2: On The Line (Possession)

We’ll still just keep on growing on the line
Possession feels so long after a time
It’s jealous and it’s cheap and mottled wine will fill you up

We’ll still just keep on saying that you’re mine
Possession feels like summer and resign
We’re heavy like a rocket, all these lies could hold us up
Intersecting sockets, little eyes can fill me up
I found you in my locket and I’m wrong to lift you up
Forgotten in my pockets all the lines could fill us up

We’ll still just keep on growing on the line
Possession feels so long after a time
We’re pressure into beats and all this wine could fill you up

We’ll still just keep on saying that you’re mine
Possession feels like summer and resign
I’m vintage like an artist and I’m wrong to lift you up


Part 3: Into You

I’m sorry I couldn’t grow into you
I’m sorry I couldn’t grow into you

One day we will grow
And we’ll watch the parade
And we’ll know what we knew

And I wish that I had fallen into you
I wish I had forgotten what I knew

One day we will grow
And we’ll watch the parade
And one day you will know
How much I’m afraid
Not to fall into you

But I’m sorry I couldn’t grow into you
And I’m sorry I couldn’t dream harder than you

One day in the cold
I’ll freeze on my face
And I’ll run to the snow
Falling back to embrace
All the dreams that we knew

But I’m sorry I didn’t fall into you
And I’ll imitate myself reflecting you

One day we’ll combust
Forget to complain
Forget how to rust
And buy me a plane
And fly to the dust
And oil the rain
Stuck between me and you

I’m sorry I always sing the same as you
I’m sorry I always sound the same to you
I’m sorry I didn’t fall into you

You’ll call me too bland
And I’ll call you a spade
Hear my left hand
Across the parade
The merry-go-round’s
Addicting refrain
Didn’t grow into you

And I’m sorry I didn’t fall into you
For the first time I’d like to be contented too
And maybe I could be an ocean too
Track Name: Circled In Sun
I’ll never be the same
You’ll not forget my name
We’ll be a traffic lane

Know that I’m never the one
To be circled in sun
I’m never the one, my darling

I’ll never be the same
You’ll not forget my name
We’ll be a traffic lane
Wrapped up in cellophane

The tinsel shined bright
At the back of his neck
And the river of white
That electrically let
Us keep singing without you, darling

I’ll never be the same
You’ll not forget my name
We’ll be a traffic lane
Wrapped up in cellophane
Dead in the sugar cane

We live in third person
Where there’s nothing is real
You live in a body
That just hides how you feel
And I live in a rooftop
That’s all covered in steel
Reflecting each way, my darling

There’s nothing like first
It's never so fast
I’m thrown on the wheel
I’m yours like the last
I never could feel
For sure that it’s past
I’m small at your feet
I'm tied to the mast
Missing you closer to me, my darling
Track Name: Evergreen / Hold You Down
We tend to turn around
Repeat the things we say
I’ll be the evergreen

I love what no one knows
The anchor in my leg
The little lips that destroy you
So far away

I’ll be the evergreen
Ignore the falling arms
They weakly disappear

And I’d run so far
To do the things we said
But not the things we loved
That fade from gray to red

You watch and you wait
People run circles they don’t understand
Here on the rooftops you cease and desist
I need a magnet appear on the land
Here on the rooftops where I can’t resist
Somebody don’t what you don’t understand
Foolish above me, in your arms

Fix a leak inside yourself
One day you’ll wait
Don’t ever wait

And I’ll be the evergreen
While these trains set sail
And darker stoops erupt
With empty mail

My time is turn around
Repeat the things we say
An anchor for my leg

But I’ll never be like them
I’ll always fall again
They’ll count from one to ten
They run through frozen air
While I’m just naked there

For so much loving you
And so much time away
So far

You watch and you wait
People make routines they don’t understand
I need a living that I can’t resist
I need a magnet appear on the land
Here on the rooftops you’ll always be missed
Somebody force me to be what I planned
Somebody force me to force down this land
Somebody force me to live what I can
Somebody don’t what you don’t understand
Foolish above me, in your arms

Why would I ever hold you down?
Why would they ever hold you down?
Track Name: Corners
I’d like to be where I’m real and under
And I’ll be below you each time I wonder
Where I watch you write only in the thunder
I’ll be below you each time I wonder
I’d like to be where I’m real and under
And where you’re always right—

Where do these lines go with you?
Where does this time go with you?

I’ll never be the things you want
Stability, a metal block
Forever secrets hold in you
Simplicity, alone and new
You’ll find me in the corners, dear
Please take me from the corners near

You'll find me on the platforms still
I’ll run so far, I hope you will
In olive oil, in dusty clouds
In the trailer parks, in the foreign towns

And really I’m a lot like you
I’m afraid to change while I’m loving you
Like an ever clear with a younger few
Will you feed me knives newer than the new

All the mess I fixed, what we must redo
Every single week, every season soon
And I want to hate what I used to do
And I want to hate what I used to do

I’ll always love like misunderstanding
I’ll always love her like wolves I stand in
I’ll always love her like knives I hand in

I’m always wishing with all abandon

Will you always love me with such abandon?
