Track Name: Pushing My Luck
always floating
on an ocean
ever golden

i laid down and went to sleep
i ended up waking up at sea
you stuck a mattress in wet cement
time was a prostitute, it came and went again

pushing my luck
push it down and then pull it back up
Track Name: Muddled
i take into consideration
our history always
but don't you know
it don't work out
all the time
the same

what's the matter?
what is all the fuss about?
and i don't understand the words coming out your mouth
over half the time
but i don't really mind

break it down
i'll keep tumbling after
and all the words
the syllables disaster
after another, each one is overwhelming me

she would say
she would say
that sounds exactly like something that she would say to me

and i felt muddled up
muddled up
bundled up
in the middle of the summer
overwhelmed, overwhelmed, overwhelmed
Track Name: Juno
i don't want to understand what you are saying to me
i don't get why you'd be mad over a trivial thing
yes i'm listening but i just need a second to think

lightning rods and glistening rocks
everything eventually rots away

don't mind anything i said
in due time it'll work itself out
and i might end up forgetting
everything we're talking about

i don't want to understand what you are saying to me
there are moments when we're talking and i forget to breathe
lightning rods and glistening rocks
everything eventually rots away

i would love to find you
i would love to find you

i would love to find you waiting for me

don't mind anything i said
in due time it'll work itself out
and i might end up forgetting
everything you said

i don't want to understand what you are saying to me
there are moments when we're talking and i forget to breathe
lightning rods and glistening rocks
everything eventually rots away
Track Name: Poison Tones
december afternoons
on an old mattress laying in a room
next to you
and i don't mind
i don't have to be anywhere at any time
and neither do you

i fell asleep at the wheel
and i could tell you'd never feel the same way as me

and it still feels the same
how does it go
are you replaying the moment in your head
over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again

i wasn't open to anyone
i was closed off and i couldn't even run away
i was on such a comet
crossing the earth a million times a day

i fell asleep at the wheel
and i could tell you'd never feel the same way as me

tell me where to go
when i'm all alone
when i'm overgrown and growing

what was all the noise
wrapped up in your poise
in your poison tones
Track Name: Celeb Dog
hopping on trains
asking strangers names
none of them feel so strange
anymore if they were at all
all of the fear it had worn off

tossing and turning
examining my inner eyelids, i'm burning
burning from your endless silence
hello, am i all alone
i hope you're still on the phone

celebrity dog
you love it then you're gone

but it was the same
it usually is
talk for a minute
then get on with it
forget each others names
doesn't that seem strange

celebrity dog
you love it then you're gone
you love it then you're

nothing more than a dream in the ocean
nothing more than a drop in an ocean of a dream, oh
emotional
you're a match dropping over the ocean
you're a match on an ocean that's filled with gasoline
a terrible scene

tossing and turning
examining my inner eyelids, i'm burning
burning from your endless silence
hello, am i all alone
i hope you're still on the phone

celebrity dog
you love it then you're gone
you love it then you're
Track Name: Oscillating
oscillating
like a wave
i'm debating
the same old things
every day

plywood walls
does that make a home for you
it won't

and i could say the same
and everything would change
but really i don't think
the people would remain
the same

oscillating
like a wave
i'm debating
the same old things
every day

oscillating
feels the same
i'm debating
the same old things
every day

open divides
the space occupied by another
what is it that tries to stay
the people on the side
are never occupied by lovers
and all of the people that never will remain
Track Name: Moving In
turn off
your radio
your stereo
turn off your tv
your love is what's important to me

you get turned off
every time i do something that i think will make you laugh
everything i imagined wasn't good enough
i know you're right and i won't fight you about that
i've heard this too shall pass and i know
that eventually we'll all go

and when did i fall
and where did i end up
and how do i manage
to keep falling in love

and all of the names
all of the above
i circle them all
and then i scratch em off
Track Name: Pittsburgh
once we spent a summer sleeping by the sea
i knew that i could find her waiting there for me
i knew that everything felt like a dream astounding
no matter what i do
i cannot wrap my mind around it

laying down
on the ground
sand surrounds
you and me

water's deep
pulling at my feet
underneath the moon
that's where
i met you

one time we spent a week sleeping in new orleans
we'd walk around and hear the music from the street
i didn't know that that would be the last i'd see
the last i'd see of her
i didn't say the word
Track Name: Slowerr
I didn't mean it at all
Track Name: Umm
waiting on
cemetery songs
the water's warm and all around
the water's warm enough to drown in
everything is gone
go on

i sat patiently
all night outside the cemetery
nothing was happening
so i decided to leave
as i approached the gate
i felt the earth shake
i turned, and what'd i see
a million souls all floating and singing to me
Track Name: Hackensack
Hackensack in the fall
Broken nose
Busted jaw
I don't walk
I just crawl
Over and over, everything's falling apart

Hackensack in the fall
Neighbors pass
Insects crawl away
Today is the same as tomorrow
And yesterday's already gone again
Then what is the end?
How will I know?
Don't stop
Say so
