Track Name: The Magic
The Magic.

When I was still so young
the magic started leaking from my eyes
and I swear, I swear
I couldn’t sleep ‘cause it was crawlin’ down my face at night

now now they said, now they said
just go to bed, just go to bed
now they said, now they said
just go to bed, just go to bed

And by the time I met
a girl who wanted more than just a kiss
what magic was left
I felt it go as it all welled up and dripped down my wrists

oh well, well she said, well she said
just come to bed, just come to bed
well she said, well she said
just come to bed, come back to bed

now, now she said
now she said (repeated)

When I was done with school
the magic had all filled in both my shoes
every step I take
I just can’t say how much will spill out and how much I’ll lose

oh now, now I said, now I said
can’t stay in bed, can’t stay in bed
now I said, now I said
can’t stay in bed, can’t stay in bed

Track Name: Goldfish
Goldfish.

When I die,
you guys should burn my body
because I
don’t want to be trapped in there
when they put me in the ground
and say nice things
and say nice things

about how fun I was at parties
and all of my good hair days
such as today

man it looks so bangin’
I should go somewhere
but when I get to drinking
I always end up over there at the pet store
buying bags of 5 cent goldfish
and I bring them home

they swim around in my bathtub ‘till the spring
the winter seems so long this way
I let each cold day ravage me
and when it’s warm

I let them go on golf courses
and all the little ponds
in rich people’s yards
but they soon will die,
yeah I know they’ll die

At least they get to shimmer through
something that feels real
take in all the open water
breathe it through their gills

and when I die
you guys should burn my body
because I
you guys should burn my body
because I
you guys should burn my body
because I
oh please just burn my body

Track Name: Behind Your Teeth
Behind Your Teeth.

If you’d let me live inside of your mouth
I'd set up camp and never come out
I’d look out from behind your teeth
i’d see the world the way you see

And in here I am never alone
I’ve got two dogs hangin’ from your bones
one on the left and one on the right
They never bark but i've felt them bite

I've felt them
I’ve felt them bite
I've felt them
I’ve felt them bite

When you sing you words push through me
I will let your voice consume me
Every time your breath tossels my hair
The wind tells me your heartbeat’s still there

And in here I am never alone
I’ve got two dogs hangin’ from your bones
one on the left and one on the right
They never bark but i've felt them bite

I've felt them
I’ve felt them bite
I've felt them
I’ve felt them bite

Track Name: Train Car
Train Car.

we were falling and falling yes we kept falling
asleep in a train car
rocked by the pistons
we woke up kinda sore
with some brand new city
sprawled out all over
all over
and it’s a
its a glowing place
filled up with lovers
with lovers

but there’s still dirt
and there’s still razor wire
there’s still broken glass
factory fire

we watched our small steps
as we stepped from the train
sloshing through puddles of
of yesterday’s rain

we were taking and taking yes we kept taking
a walk through the avenues
admiring the stones and
marvelling how we are
above the ground
listening to our echoing feet
and letting ghosts just brush
our cheeks

Track Name: Twenty Toes (feat. Tara)
Twenty Toes.

Our bodies are wet
and we taste like the ocean
and one drop from your skin
is a potent love potion

(Stranded on the island of your bed
cannot stand to lie here with my naked chest
put your palms on my breast
come in close and take my breath)

The bed sheets are drenched
we can bathe in each other’s scents
roll around in you
make you scream
for all the parts of my body you’ve been missing

Our bodies grow warm
and we smell like pirous collery
and one word from your lips
is all you need to call me

(Hunt you like a wolf who stalks her prey
feast on you and show you how a wolf behaves
put my lips on your face
run my hands below your waist)

Our movements sync and flow
filling me with every pleasure known
your body fits so well with me
and by the sounds that you make I can tell you agree.

Our bodies are lost
in the feel of each other
and one more perfect kiss
will just lead to another

(Earthly pleasures are no match for this
second thoughts and fears are lost within your kiss
push your tongue past your lips
trace my spine down past my hips)

Track Name: Inverse
Inverse.

If misunderstandings were just overlooked
we’d pack up and move downtown
give back what we took
as we left I said you’re right
I know you said yes
We act like we’re sophomores
and couldn’t care less

we had some young wine
and cheese that was older
you showed me the hot stakes
I gave the cold shoulder
My beliefs I held steadfast
I fell in love slow
We flew through the stop signs
I made our van go

my wallet was empty
my needs were fulfilled
we broke all the plotlines
we intended to build
on eyelids so heavy
the curtains spilled daylight
they said it was black tie
and my face went all white

I met her at sundown
the prodigal daughter
my blood was on fire
my knees turned to water
forgot all my nightmares
I got lost in daydreams
with the river too deep
we splashed through shallow streams

of loving i’m guilty
you’re no innocent
if this is called danger
then safety be spent
Into the thick of it
my worries wear thin
secondhand beginnings
made by the night’s end

Track Name: The Endless
The Endless.

Destiny knows I’m no time keeper and
Morpheus knows I’m no sound sleeper
I take a drink to make me stronger
Desire makes this night grow longer
Delirium she makes me weaker
and Death you know she is the reaper
Despair she shows me scenes of sorrow
Destruction makes room for tomorrow

What control do we have?
do we have
Oh, what control do we have?
do we have

The smell of ink is like a dream
I get so tired of see or seem
I dreamed about some books last night
the library I’ll never write
this dream is turning all too real
I swear that I can taste and feel
I dreamed about your face today
your features all began to fade

Destiny knows I’m no time keeper and
Morpheus knows I’m no sound sleeper
I take a drink to make me stronger
Desire makes this night grow longer
Delirium she makes me weaker
and Death you know she is the reaper
Despair she shows me scenes of sorrow
Destruction makes room for tomorrow

What control do we have?
do we have
Oh, what control do we have?
do we have

I think I died for wet concrete
I think I died out in the street
I say to be or not to be
and wonder if it’s time for me
Death won’t skip you if you pray
we will all meet her someday
I died when that piano fell
my darling you’re not looking well

Destiny knows I’m no time keeper and
Morpheus knows I’m no sound sleeper
I take a drink to make me stronger
Desire makes this night grow longer
Delirium she makes me weaker
and Death you know she is the reaper
Despair she shows me scenes of sorrow
Destruction makes room for tomorrow

Track Name: Smiley Face Stickers
Smiley Face Sticker.

I took a smiley face sticker
and I put it on your head
covered all the pictures
‘till the memories all fled

and they’re still here
but they’re different
and all I see, is one person
and he’s always with that smiling one
and he sees her there,
but can’t remember her

I took a magic marker
and I drew over your face
covered all the pictures
like they had never taken place

and they’re still here
but they’re different
and all I see, is one person
and he’s always with that smiling one
and he sees her there,
but can’t remember her

I took a smiley face sticker
and I put it on your head

Track Name: Salt Water
Salt Water.

And you know I’ve placed my feet
in both the world’s great oceans
and as you wish me out to sea
I feel like I’ve been chosen

With seaweed strands
caught in my hands
I have no use
for well laid plans

I float with the waves
as ships crest the horizon
a great field of sails
and stern setting forth with lessons learned
with lessons learned

From the bow I’ll be there watching
for you as you wait
on the harbor I’m saltwater you anticipate
anxious waiting, desperate hoping
I come back the same
waters changing on the high seas
I return unscathed

And the anchors are all weighed
the ships slip out of harbor
and as I stand here in their wake
the moon draws back the water

With castle sand
clutched in my hands
I’ll try to build
our new home land

I float with the waves
as ships crest the horizon
a great field of sails
and stern setting forth with lessons learned
with lessons learned

Track Name: Shoe Song
Shoe Song.

I must admit
your shoes are pretty small
I thought they’d fit
but they don’t fit at all

(I must admit
you must be pretty tall.
Your shoes are big
I wear them trip and fall)

I wore your heels
to quick take out the trash
but my sense
of balance didn’t last

(I wore your boots
to help me slay a roach
which in the end
was not the best approach)

I walked a mile to get to your house in the cold
I walked a mile and I think I’m getting old

I will confess
I think that you were right
and that we won’t
won’t make it through the night

(I will confess
I think that I was wrong
and that we just
might make it if we’re strong)

Your eyes they say
they see into my soul
Just know it’s not
something you can control

(Your eyes they say
they won’t look long on me
You know I can’t
can’t help but disagree)

I said that you could have my jacket if you’re cold
It’s pretty warm even though it’s very old

My feet are tired
from standing at your door
I’m pretty sure
that you’re worth waiting for

(My feet are tired
from dragging all night long
I followed you
your directions were wrong)

My heart is tired
but still it starts to sink
raising it up
is harder than you’d think

(My heart is tired
from beating out of sync
when yours beats hard
I feel mine start to shrink)

You’ll never know what it looks like in my head
so ill draw a simple diagram instead

I don’t much care
if it’s cloth or leather
some differences
they help hold us together

(I don’t much care
zipper clasp or lace
just so long as
everything stays in place)

I’ll walk with you
in shoes or stocking feet
when you draw near
my journey is complete

(I’ll walk with you
through trees and ocean spray
and keep your pace
‘till you send me away)

I’m asking if you have a place to lay your head
perhaps you’d like to use my shoulder instead

I walked a mile to get to your house in the cold
I walked a mile and I think I’m getting old

(I said that you could have my jacket if you’re cold
It’s pretty warm even though it’s very old)

You’ll never know what it looks like in my head
so ill draw a simple diagram instead

(I’m asking if you have a place to lay your head
perhaps you’d like to use my shoulder instead)

I must admit
your shoes don’t fit at all

Track Name: Bermuda and Bernoulli
Bermuda and Bernoulli.

Born so different
destined for a rivalry
were two brothers Bermuda and Bernoulli

Bermuda tended three sides of the sea and land
Bernoulli concerned himself with other plans

He looked to the sky
He looked to the sky and demanded it

The cold sea, and deep stones
bound Bermuda to the world below
but using lift and light
Bernoulli took flight

And flew past waves and grass

Bermuda looked up at the sun
eclipsed by nothing and no one
his view would soon be torn apart
his brother’s shadow broke his heart

Bermuda watches planes go by
his brother claiming open sky
and he is filled with jealousy,
and pulls them down into the deep

Born so different
destined for a rivalry
were two brothers Bermuda and Bernoulli

Bermuda tended three sides of the sea and land
Bernoulli concerned himself with other plans

He looked to the sky
he looked to the sky and demanded it

The deep sand, and high waves
bound Bermuda to the earthly plane
refusing his brother’s side
Bernoulli took flight

And flew past waves and grass

Bernoulli’s principle in play
means planes are flying to this day
But all good pilots should beware
in case Bermuda stakes his claim

Track Name: Bells and Twine
Bells and Twine.

She’s all made up of bells and twine
she never lets me call her mine (repeated)

slowly and methodically I empty my vocabulary of you
all the little things you say that seep into that seep into

‘Cause every time I hear me say
one of your little turns of phrase
it takes me back to stolen days
with you

I’m all made up of quills and tin
I never let her draw me in (repeated)

Quickly and impulsively I left the house without my phone or keys
and rode my bike around the park between the trees between the trees

‘Till well after the sun had set
in stunning shades of pink and red
and I’d forgotten all you’ve said
to me

Track Name: Untrue Animal
Untrue Animal.

I can tell you
how many times I’ve stayed
watched the sun rise
into an aimless day

And so begins
the time that we will be
here for you
and so begins
the time
the time that we will be
for you

Spin and sift through
ways unknown
be so untrue
animal

Hazard to guess
the weight of an hour in
worth and wanting
hazard to guess
the weight
the weight of an hour in
wanting

The water hits the backs of my ears
reanimate the old chandeliers
a skeletal light is all I saw
picturesque dim and wonderful
