Track Name: Nightswimming At The Full Moon Party
I am separating
I am separating from myself
I believe she hates it
I believe she hates it
I believe we'd hate it
I believed we'd hate it all the time
When we're lost
When we're lost together
We can dream
We can dream forever

I believe we've made it
I believe we've made it after all
When we're caught in the stormy weather
We can dream
We can dream we'd never

When the white sands get me down
And the night says I've given all I have
I'm all right when you're not around
I have no desire to be bad

Be bad
Track Name: Nietzsche's Harvest Song
Lately
I've been having a lot of bad ideas
Remove the thorn in my side and I'll disappear
I'll roll driveway to driveway to prove I'm here
But i'll never give enough
What i'm lacking in self-consciousness I

Hide in my new skin everyday
Humble my old skin right away

Yeah, I've been pouting a thundercloud
"I GIVE UP! I GIVE UP! I GIVE UP! I GIVE UP! I GIVE UP!"
On the Venus
She's been smoking like a phoenix underground
Smoldering in rain

Hide in my new skin everyday
Humble my old skin right away

If it was up to me
Then she could have me anytime
I lost the simple things gone on my way back home
On the prairie where I closed my eyes
Saw my home, all alone
It's gone to the wolves

Hide in my new skin everyday
Humble my old skin right away
Track Name: Instantaneous Vertical Speed
Yeah the radio's on and i'm looking for a place to go
Yeah my mind's on fire and i'm feeling like i want to unravel
Yeah my planes on time but the people they just won't let me fly away
Yeah i'm stuck in puerto rico
I can't stand these fucking people
They won't let me go

Let me go
Let me go

Yeah I'm on no sleep running on an apple and a cold burrito
I'm on an island now i'm stuck here because speedy's not running his boats
I'm all alone now drinking grapefruit soda at a bar in tropical conditions
Isn't life delicious?
Soon, the waves let me go

Let me go
Let me go

I've been stalling out on the best years of my life
Sometimes it's salty, but only after the very first bite
But the people help untying me
Render with a love undying
They won't let me go

Let me go
Let me go
Track Name: To Thine Own Self Be True
Some people with better lives
Just won't set an example the way that you do
With your warm blankets and warmer eyes
In good karma we sleep until we're all descended to home

Slow days bring me better times
like rye whiskey on ice, a hot shower and breakfast with
A pair of your finest wives
Throw them through the gauntlet
They're looking for places to hide

But you're behind
The other side pulling the strings
Her fate the whole time
The apple sews seeds to be fine

Be still my heart, Carry on
I won't let it get me down
Track Name: How To Put An Audience To Sleep In Under Two Minutes
The first time I called you out it was the right day
A second later we would have been toast
When you're there
Waiting in the snow scared stupid
Wondering if you should even
Go to eat in
New shoes
Shone right through your blues
Stood right behind you
In suede patina
While your smile
Stayed straight all the while
I hope to find time to meet with open arms

I wanna know did you miss me?
Did you miss me at all?

Dreams ending in white picket fences
Pretending the world isn't quite so big
I wanna know
Is there anyone out there brave enough to let me in?

Are you brave enough?
Are you ready to let me in?
Track Name: Dunce Pageant
When the lights they drip like rain
In a warmer city than we began
I know i won't follow through
Because now i know that it's just you
I've got no confidence
I'm just a lonely swan in an endless lake
Where i'm thrown bread for food by a party of two

I do it to myself
I know i can't laugh hard or my throat gives out
Well i've got nothing interesting to say, anyway
And i'm just looking up to the bright side
While you're looking down at me
And i'm just hoping I'll remember the smile on your face

But will you remember me?

Anyway

You've got black eyeliner on
To hide the sunset
On your budding life that you'll regret
Won't you let me be your pride
And you can be mine
And we could have it all for all our favourite things
We have grown to hate

Because i see me in you
I see a little girl who's afraid to be true
But i won't have it any other way
Oh maybe this could be love!
I feel it in my chest
Now my stomach's always full
Yeah i feel different around you

And it's the way that you smile
It's the way that you sigh
It's the way that you lie through your denial
And i just can't get through
But i'm crazy for you

You've got black eyeliner on
To hide the sunset
On your budding life that you'll regret
Won't you let me be your pride
And you can be mine
And we could have it all
We'll have it all

It's the same old song i've always sung
I could be dead by thirty one
We could have it all

We'll have it all

When the lights they drip like rain
In a warmer city than we became
I know i won't follow through
With you
