Track Name: Windows
Look in and out the windows

We've got a wailer on our hands
rhythm of resistance
raindogs are louder than bombs
another tsunami summer

Bloated like dolly
helpless like a promise
the worlds greatest gospel singer can't bail me out of this

Look in and out the windows

Glacier in the backyard
clouds keep you distracted
curious bodies of water are pooling in the grass

I do things that make me think that
this is what you want

When I want flowers I go on foot
Track Name: Twilight
Another starless night
another dim streetlight
turn your head just right
the street becomes a sky

Shooting stars go by
they spark and they die
they never catch the night

Love made with body
I need one to love
Love made with body
I need one to love
Love made with body
I need one to love

Twilight
Track Name: Death & Beauty
On death and beauty
tragic heroine
romanticising
consumption

Heroine, imagine fevered symptoms
across generations

Rosy cheeks don't make you healthy

Move like the clouds do
flirt with formation
fraud to the system
out of fashion

Heroine, imagine fact or fiction
across generations

Underneath your skin
one might find the shape you're in
Track Name: Tricks
It's been a week or two
since your last letter
pour a drink for the unfolding
words on a typewriter

Golden sheets of paper
cup of copy and a cigarette
i love your tricks so madly
it's making me mad

Summer time
is late night bike rides
sunny skies and lose track of time
humming ambulance blues
take me to the beach
i love your tricks so madly
it's making me mad
Track Name: Take It Slow
Take it slow one step at a time
Slow it down, even slower now
Saw you at the back of the bar
Whiskey and water

I've got a friend, he's going places
something about the moon

He slept on the couch downstairs

It's been years since your bed was shared

It took years but you got there

He became the shape of the chair
it took years but you got there
Track Name: Give It Up
I can't watch people who don't know what they want
They cause all the drama, acting for pay
We saw it on the double feature, back to back affair
I didn't want to see them, I don't even like film
Just sharing an armrest

I hear the walls breathing in and out
I feel the space in between

I have kings in every corner, I won't let you move
Truth be told I know all the rules I'm breaking
Wink and a nudge, call your bluff
Tell me a story

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up

Give it up
Give it up
Give it up
Track Name: Mistakes
Try being lonely, you've got another thing coming
Certainly beyond good taste
lay the confidence to make mistakes

Is indifference more dignified
does it matter that i'm tired
does it matter that i won't come down because i want to be high?

Mistakes, they are my own
Because, they are my own
Mistakes, they are my own because

You never meant so much now that you're gone
Godspeed the title
godbless the gospel and exercise my stamina

Mistakes, they are my own
Because, they are my own
Mistakes, they are my own because
Track Name: Will You Come
Don't you wish for the week to end
your young self dying of anticipation
It takes time to make history
Life just got more interesting
Song for the universe
anthem for the restless
Abandoning ship is on my mind

Will you come to
Will I go to you

Rock the boat and pull it off the shore
current take control of the idle energy
Get the show on the road, windows down
Put your hand on my knee

Will you come to
Will I go to you
Track Name: Innkeeper
I don't know how the cycle started
but it came around the same time you left
i keep staring at the door
and i sit here numb with no way to contact you
not that you are in better shape but still
wishing you show up

I'm not able to see through the darkness
but have stumbled through various states of black
I'm not able to speak to the darkness
but have stumbled through various states of black

Possibilities drawing on problems that boil down to feeling stunted and trapped
feeling like there is too much of everything to be a part of anything

not good enough
not feeling loved enough
not good enough
not feeling loved

I'm afraid i understand i know you wonder about me
I'm not able to speak to the wonder but the moon knows through window
Track Name: The News
I'm so shaken by the news
I'm so taken by you
I'm still shaking by the news
I'm so shaken by the news
I'm so taken with you

Some road cross on the mighty atlas

We travelled into the mountains crystal water, no power
No one to sing to
We travelled into the mountains
big as earth is old
I'm still shaking from the news

Goodness gracious
We left our dark apartments
with the river creeping up

We travelled into the mountains
