Track Name: Little Seeds
our world is not the same
and this too shall pass he said
and we are little seeds
growing vines through fences living how we please

our world is not the same
and this too shall pass he said
and from the language in his stiff shoulders the air
the air went cold

we are little seeds growing vines through fences living how we please
our world is not the same
Track Name: Animals Crawling in your Skull
building bricks
stacking tall
tops of tree
tell them all
you left me

scratching your head intolerably
hold onto a branch
wait days and days

animals crawling in your skull
rolling around again
scraping your insides out
holding yourself together
A grizzly you've become
when you're reachin' in her heart

i know a super man
he told me with his hands
i'm having a thought that
wont let you in

time does a funny thing
i thank-you for reminding me

what have you become
when you're reachin' in her heart?
Track Name: Gunfire at High Noon
Tina says what I cant
time teaches touches torches a
burning blimp
a glimpse of want you're out there but it's tangled rope
threads unlacing one by one
strands unraveling mind keeps traveling
on its legs
to distant places to
a world of
mismatch times
times were good
but times no good when good don't last forever

it was you what I want, close me in
race down face down, close me in

box it up ship it out
weight weighs wages welling up
in sinking sand
in ink there's love and despair and the in between
braid together for each word
letters sent but not stamped
paper airplanes all the rage for you
alas there's the great wait washing over
don't be late cus late just makes us sober
Track Name: I'm Scared We'll Tear The World Apart in a Fit of Bloody Rage
I dont wanna be afraid
I just know it's how I'm made
i don't wanna speak your name
solid songs sing our game
oh, I cant relate.
oh, I can't think straight.
I don't wanna be afraid
I just know it's how I'm made

I'm scared of what we'll do
we'll tear the world in two with our
heart, our heart our fearless love
and we'll walk, walk, through the park
we'll scared the birds, birds, with our bark
we'll scare the world with our bark
We'll scare the world with our bark
We'll scare the world with our bark
and then we'll bike, bike, bike the park, to the shipyard where the road stops, to the river, swim until we part, to the river,
swim until we part
Track Name: Knavery
Bend me
break me
take all my things
hold me down with my teeth to the ground
forgive the forgotten and hold onto your dream of driving

crush the blue gray sky like an ant
be the words on your tongue spilling out
before it's all over
the small print sings, "our foundation's filled with doubt."
jewel is looking out the window at the falling falling leaves
and the colors they are changing as are we, as are we

if you know the truth wont you
set
it
free
Track Name: Slim Pickins
You say, "I am not your friend"
I am your love who's been away for years.
i haven't called
eyes to the sky
and please remember this
and please don't wait up
I dont know what world you think you live in but...
You're picking fights in my garden of gold.
and I don't know what world you live in but it's getting old.
Track Name: The Sound, Silence Made More
if there is a beast
a beast inside of me,
can you let it be?
can you talk to me?

underneath the floorboards
is a whistle
If you make a sound
can you speak?

if there is a beast
a beast inside of me,
can you let it be?
can you talk to me?
Track Name: Conversing with a Ghost
fate is a falling stone
you create your lifelong perspective
take it in
take it out
take your breath for what it is

and i see you walking down the street conversing with a ghost
tell me where you're from, tell me apparition
you're traveling all alone leaving steps all in the snow
and i see you walking down the street conversing with a ghost

look here stranger i don't know how to handle you
i cant sew you back
he cant bring you back and while you're going down to your place

say your first and say your last words say your first words and say your last word and i see you walking down the street conversing with a ghost.
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
eye, eye of the storm
i'm dancing with you.

A swollen red across your cheeks
two sheets of glass behind your eyes,
a hand imprinted on your mind,
a whisper coming from behind, "dont worry friend, we'll make it out fine."
a frozen puddle turning dry.

eye, eye of the storm
the grass is just fine

eye, eye of the storm
they'll be no rewind
