Track Name: Shy Deer
(Shy deer)
No blood is new
No branch is grown
No peak has seen
No heart has known
A sight above the sea
Track Name: Once The Sun Stops Feeling New
Just woke up, it's all the same
ten more dead, nothing to say
in your arms, "I am here"
take it in, live what you see

Stopped reading news, it's all the same
ten more dead, nothing to say
I will feel, just like you:
once the sun, stops feeling new
Track Name: Snow Bird
"My man, he doesn't know, where he walks and why he goes - a buried body can't know. My girl, she lives alone, doesn't talk and hides her own - a buried heart can't grow. Beneath the sea, a snowbird sways and gives it's arms up to pray - a buried weight just can't grow. Beneath the seas, we're set in ways, that our hands just can't change. A body is a lonely home."
Track Name: So Tired (Partial)
i'm so tired of needing you
i'm so worn from all i do
pulled past a ledge of blue
seats stacked in wide room

rest comes off of an open moon
gloom stays past the morning bloom
fall down to a hollow place
where the blind scream out and say:

"i see it too, everything is true!
i see it too, everything is new!"

i'm so tired of needing...
Track Name: The Bison King
Saddle up and rope the pines on rusty bluffs
The bison king head is hung up above the dust

The cowboys see the western plains, the pink tumble weeds blowing past all of our simplest needs

Some saddle up and keep theirs hearts from falling free
Most settle down to that money tree

Beggars and kings both sell their western souls for a loft with a view of their own dead deeds

So saddle up and rope the pines on dusty bluffs
The bison king head is hung up above the rust
Saddle up and rope the pines on dusty bluffs
The bison king head is hung up above the rust
Track Name: Sweet Dreams
I'm determined to claim the worst is your own
Knowing the best has no where to go
No wonder growth has such rotten needs
Now litter those birds down with those seeds

My bad memory feeds a deep of mistaken honesty
Failure isn't always what it's made to be when pain is a dream and love is empty

Not everything is easy to forget
A face is a belief and a will is a regret
Now pinch your skin nervously you aren't going to fool any living thing

Yeah,
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet, sweet dreams

Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet, sweet dreams

I'm determined to claim the best is a show
Knowing the worst has nothing to know
No wonder life has such terrible needs
Now litter those birds down with the weeds

My own bad thoughts fill a body full of loss
I could sit and stare if I knew it meant a thing
But birds breed their own wings
and everybody grows their own damn dreams

Yeah,
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet, sweet dreams

Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet dreams
Sweep away my sweet, sweet dreams
Track Name: Happy Endings
What a relief to hear the sea wave goodbye
I thought I forgot I was still alive

Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream

What a relief to see the moon perched high
I thought it was strange my mind had no light
All those times I walk alone at night
Still don't know what to do with my life

Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream

What a relief to see your lips say goodbye
I thought you'd never leave me alive
All those times we shared a bed at night
I laid awake planning your demise

Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Happy endings don't mean a thing
It's just another bad dream
Track Name: Puke Pig
The puke pig a waste of skin
The empty sin imagined pain
So fat your head will snap
beneath the weight of defeat
Obese beliefs not from weight
Imagined dreams kings stumble on two feet
A prince begs as death loves to breathe

The party whores dance alone
camera men cause wars
Speak loud fear the dream
stand on your knees

Walk away, bloody knuckles aren't the way
Express hate, an open mind what a waste
I can't seem to think

Walk away, bloody knuckles aren't the way
Express hate, an open mind what a waste
I can't seem to think
Track Name: So Funny I'll Die
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
So funny I'll die
So funny I'll lie
Track Name: Lady Green
There's a heart attack A pain punch
A green tomato A naked lunch
My brain wash My clean head
A puddle pond Step into my body
A peach pie the farmer John
The camels go where people know

Oh nourish me Lady Green
Please, show me a leaf of beauty

I'm a nervous wreck a redneck
Gonna glue down my whole head
So worn down A bottle dream
An icepick The body stick
I'm a drained sink It's a pain to think
I'm a cavity left to sink

There's a heart attack A pain punch
A green tomato A naked lunch
My brain wash My clean head
A puddle pond Step into my body
A peach pie The farmer John
The camels go where people know

Oh nourish me, Lady Green
Please, grow me a leaf of beauty
Track Name: Salty Lips
"Bark, bark!"
"Quiet!"
Is it all that I've been through
that brings me back to you?
Deep down, underneath
I've got the will to believe

In her spell I'll forget to blink
I'll bathe beneath the ocean sink
Clean, salty lips are my drink
The sour breath on the old cream
Track Name: My Own Pouring Rain
Oh no, what a sad day
I'm covered in my own pouring rain
Oh no, what a sad day
I'm covered in my own pouring rain

At the top I'll see what seeds see
At the top I'll see what seeds see
At the top I'll see what seeds see
At the top I'll see what seeds see

I'm gold as God, but I still need love
I'm gold as God, but I still need love
I'm gold as God, but I still need love
I'm gold as God, but I still need love
I'm gold as God, but I still need love
I'm gold as God, but I still need love

Oh no, what a bad day
I'm covered in my own pouring rain
Oh no, what a bad day
I'm covered in my own pouring rain
Oh no, what a bad day
I'm covered in my own pouring rain
Track Name: Seeds No.2
The humble own, the least know
the wait begins, with partial needs

Don't worry down those boring days
Growing pain on thoughtless plains
The apple sour, the dark sails,
the seeds sweep on their own weeds

My cherry home, the red road, the bugs breed on their own deeds

Wither weep down so deep
Wither seek around my knees

There's no known place to go where all man's weeds will grow
There's no known place to go where all man's weeds will grow
Track Name: Her Spell
In her spell I'll forget to blink
I'll bathe beneath the ocean sink
Clean, salty lips are my drink
Sour breath, old dreams

Blue days are dairy deeds
Milk is a whole body drink
A hole gripped to a sorry sea
Track Name: Oh Man
Oh man! I've lost my head!
Oh man! I'll bruise my bed!
Oh man! I've lost my head!
Oh man! I'll bruise my bed!
Oh man! I've lost my head!
Oh man! I'll bruise my bed!
Oh man! I've lost my head!
Oh man! I'll bruise my bed!
Track Name: Tow The Wind
There is no place I will grow
There is no place I will know
That tows the wind
As I breathe in

There is no heart in my own
There is no heart in my home
That tows the wind
When I breathe in
Track Name: One Day You're Happy
One day you're happy
The next day you're sad
I don't know why you want to feel so bad

One day you're happy
The next day you're sad
I don't know why you want to feel so bad

One day you're sad
The next day you're stoked
Is it so hard to take life by the throat
One day I'm here one day I'm gone
I don't know when, so I'll move along

One day it's love the next day its hate
I don't know why we just can relate
One day it's hate the next it's love
I don't know why it's so complicated

One day you're happy
The next day you're sad
I don't know why you want to feel so bad

One day you're happy
The next day you're sad
I don't know why you want to feel so bad
Track Name: Young Girl
This young girl don't know how to feel
Checks her hair and tightens her heels
Doesn't think I can see beneath her skin
Doesn't think I can tell what she feels within

Now, hold me down beneath the water
Now, hold me down until I can't see you smile
Now, hold me down beneath the water
Now, hold me down until I can't see you smile

She tells me she don't know how to deal with the pressure to make herself look real
Might as well leave her on the side of the road pinned down by all the clothes she owns

This young girl don't know how to grow
Hides her soul in a sheet of gold
Might as well leave her all alone
chasing all of them richest folk
Track Name: Club My Knees
She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
She hates me

Club my knees
As long as you need
Club my knees
As long as you need
To understand

She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
She hates me
She loves me
And then she hates me

Club my knees
As long as you need
Club my knees
As long as you need
To understand

She chokes me
She holds me
She chokes me
She holds me
She chokes me
She holds me
She chokes me
She holds me
She chokes me
She holds me
Track Name: Lift The Seas
I could hold you for the rest of my life
Sleep through each day into the night
And dream the dreams other men have known
But the braver man is the one that stays alone
the braver man is the one that stays alone

I could lift the sea with your
Heal the sick my broken knees
Live the love other men have known
But the braver man is the one that stays alone
The braver man is the one that stays alone

I could be the things you me to be
I could see the things that you want me to see
Live the life another man should know
But the braver man is the one that stays alone
the braver man is the one that stays alone
the braver man is the one that stays alone
the braver man is the one that stays alone
Track Name: No Head No Toes
There's a girl down by the water
With beautiful hair and no reason to live
Starves herself with every compliment

There's a man watching her walk by
Hopes that she might catch his eyes
Bring him near and call him dear

Instead she just walks by
Doesn't notice his open arms
Doesn't notice his unusual charms

She carries herself to a wooden bridge
Doesn't know where her life begins
Doesn't know when her pain will end

There's a man down by the water
Looks down until his head falls off
Walks around until his feet wear off

There's a girl watching him float by
Hopes that he might tell her why:
the ocean will never meet the sky
Track Name: Bye Bye Love No. 2
Bye, bye lover I know I did you wrong
Sorry about all that
But it's time to move on
It's time to move on
To move on

Bye, bye lover
I'll miss you when you're gone
I'm sorry we can't stay together
But it's time
It's time, it's time, it's time
to move on

Now bye, bye lover
I'll wait until you're gone
Sorry I couldn't do better
But you should really move along
Now you should really just move on

Bye, bye lover
What are you waiting for
I'm sorry I can't say more
But the tide has reached the shore
The tide has reached the shore
once more
Track Name: Bye Bye Love No.4
Bye, bye love
I know I did you wrong

Bye, bye love
I know I did you wrong

So long
So alone
So long
So alone

Bye, bye love
I know I did you wrong

Bye, bye love
I know I did you wrong

So long
So alone
So long
So alone
