Track Name: Japanese Gameshow
what’d you say I might agree
the ornaments have fallen out of the tree
catch your name in a banzai breeze
you’re playing games, you’re Japanese

my fault is to want to wait up for you if you asked me to
my patient muscles are getting sore whenever that may be
lock me up put me down I am your stray
i am burnt out how lucky are you

excuse my reach excuse my slouch
another conversation on the edge of your couch
catch your name in a banzai breeze
you’re playing games, you’re Japanese

my fault is to want to wait up for you if you asked me to
my patient muscles are getting sore whenever that may be
lock me up put me down I am your stray
i am burnt out how lucky are you
Track Name: Colorado Lounge
empty rooms and lonely standstills
keeping busy filling stencils
hey Tony it’s getting visceral
in here again

i got more than I wanted
it’s just easy not to care
i hate all these feelings
that I get when you’re there

colorado lounging
i know you too well

every day I feel so stale
i break two bones give or take
i cruise too much I’m crashing trains
i’m young and dumb and I make mistakes
no one tells you where to go
when you’re too big to be alone
i want to shrink down to a stone
to be pocket-sized so no one knows

there’s that noise inside my mind again
clearly ill sick of emotions
take me away to where I’m calm
i’m next to the ocean

i got more than I wanted
it’s just easy not to care
i hate all these feelings
that I get when you’re there

colorado lounging
i know you too well

i got more than I wanted
it’s just easy not to care
i hate all these feelings
that I get when you’re there

colorado lounging
i know you too well

every day I feel so stale
i break two bones give or take
i cruise too much I’m crashing trains
i’m young and dumb and I make mistakes
no one tells you where to go
when you’re too big to be alone
i want to shrink down to a stone
to be pocket-sized so no one knows
Track Name: Go Outside
run quick through door
pass them on the right
clear skin, insecure
pass them to the right

go outside let the sun shine bright in your eyes
look at the water where it’s clearer
you shouldn’t hide baby its alright
don’t hide look at the water

confused, what’s the score?
bugs crawl on my chest
give me a break, give it a rest
got to start giving up what feels best

go outside let the sun shine bright in your eyes
look at the water where it’s clearer
you shouldn’t hide baby its alright
don’t hide look at the water
Track Name: If You Can Hold Your Breath
my unfaithful wife, her strapping beau
sent me to the beach
they see the tide
washes their smile away

here’s something to tide you over
if you can hold your breath

i froze their joints at comfort point
as I laugh at the screen
i see the tide
stretched smiles on my face

here’s something to tide you over
if you can hold your breath

soggy footsteps, sandy palm
my old love’s creeping in
i see the tide
washes my smile away
Track Name: Spooky Ghost
there’s a ghost in my house
and he’s taunting me
there’s a ghost in my house
and he’s haunting me

and he plays his organ
because I wont give him mine
and his plan is working
i’ll cough up my lung in time

there’s a ghost in my brain
and he’s torturing me
there’s a ghost
in my brain

and he plays his organ
because I wont give him mine
and his plan is working
i’ll cough up my lung in time

there’s a ghost in my house
and he’s haunting me
there’s a ghost in my house
Track Name: Homework
i told you about my headaches
you told me about where you stray in the fall
tell me more I like the way you think
put down the pen and take a break

i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework but I got nothing done
i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework

desperate for dizzy distractions
i want to stretch out the time you spend to my left
choke on the words behind my teeth
the space between these chairs is killing me

i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework but I got nothing done
i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework but I got nothing done

stay away from me
your presence is unbearable
stay away from me
your pressures unbelievable
but you’re the one for me
please don’t go far
i’ll cave eventually

i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework but I got nothing done
i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework

i tried to do homework with you
i tried to do homework but I got nothing done
i tried to do homework with you
Track Name: Feel
i’ll be anything you want me to be
i said to a fish that swims in my sea
it’s tough
it’s tough to know

do you want it?

i’ll be waiting waiting for you
i feel it in the breeze through the seams of my clothes
to feel hard
to feel apart

perpetual disappointment
my toes bleed underneath their heels
i'm cutting halves into fourths and fourths into eighths
i’m punctured by the ones that I’m good to
pieces made for company

do you want it?

i’ll be waiting waiting for you
i feel it in the breeze through the seams of my clothes
to feel hard
to feel apart

says you
can I feel that word
it’s on the tip of my tongue
Track Name: She'll Be Fine
she’ll be fine with or without rhymes
she’ll be fine, she is of my kind
one of these days, tripping on Sundays
i’ll be fine, I’ve made up my mind

and she’s always
wanting some news
but I’m not new

save yourself
get out
she’ll be fine
with or without rhymes

she’ll be fine drifting on my lines
transient valentine, shoegaze to pass time
one of these days, tripping on Sundays
i’ll be fine I’ve made up my mind

and she’s always
wanting some news
but I’m not new

she’ll be fine
with or without rhymes
Track Name: Woodbridge
soft skin, pretty face
my skin shrivels and pales
but i guess all is well
while you still breath

and i've been falling backwards
i'm no longer the seven fingered man
don't smoke cigarettes
which cancer will i get

it's too late

drum sticks
and sabbath
you're gone and i'm here
taking up space

and i've been falling backwards
i'm no longer the seven fingered man
and i've been falling backwards

it's too late

trying to accept the things i don't understand
i'm trying to learn what i takes to be my own man
crossroads in the park
marketplace in the dark
i know they're not happy with him
Track Name: Backdoor
if you cared at all you'd lean onto me
you're at the back door
you're ten feet tall
and i'm feeling sick

that back door
i can feel the air
i can feel it at the back door
i can feel it it's too much

bought cigarettes again
it's not enough
bought cigarettes again
it's not enough
and i hope
it will be okay
and i hope
i get better at being awake

if you cared at all you'd know i unfold
you're at the backdoor
you're ten feet tall
and i'm feeling sick

that back door
i can feel the air
i can feel it at the back door
i can feel it it's too much

bought cigarettes again
it's not enough
bought cigarettes again
it's not enough
and i hope
it will be okay
and i hope
i get better at being awake
Track Name: Orange Sweater
there goes another hour
i've been thinking about your kind words all week
now your breath's on my neck i'm breathing deep
my throat's closed i'm falling hard

you don't know

just another taste
because i'm hungry
i'm hungry for your heart
to beat away next to mine
so please don't keep me away
you've got me wrapped around your tiny finger
i'm hungry for your heart to beat away
im hungry

there goes another hour
i've been looking at a picture of us two
my sunshine is so bright my iris fries
the femme fatale of my love songs is mine

you don't know

just another taste
because i'm hungry
i'm hungry for your heart
to beat away next to mine
so please don't keep me away
you've got me wrapped around your tiny finger
i'm hungry for your heart to beat away
i'm hungry

right by my side
you look at me the way i look at you
and i forgot how to drive with both hands
because my right one is reserved for you

i'll sit still while you so easily
clear those cobwebs off my heart
she bats her eyes i can't feel down
her sweater's orange her eyes are brown
