Track Name: Paw Bloom
All teethy smiles it seems, shy dog eyes reflecting shy dog eyes
We are mirrors and our pupils are glossy with chilly tears drawn from sailing bikes
Out of mouth comets a light and we share it
Each a puzzle piece tearing for fun and panting at trying so hard
I'd let you have it if you want but we both know it makes us wag

To tense up and let go, so face facts
So it goes, don't let go of your hair
So it grows, don't let go of your teeth
So it shows, don't let go
And when the time comes ask it for a chance
It might make you beg, so learn your trick and tell him
"I won't take no"

Our masters are walking, our legs are awkward
I am talking the release of a dog backwards barking, a jargonish banter
(Juggernaut panther)
Our mouths are moving, our hands are distant
I am wincing at a sun I am not used to seeing, we kiss too often in darkness
And an absence that is filling your stomach and questions I sometimes need answered
But I don't mind when I'm close I see a craving in your dilation
And I agree and I am screaming it back at you in your own reflection
Track Name: Punk Rock Classics
Everybody grows a beard eventually
Soon enough shaves it off
Builds a time machine
Draws a bunch of cartoons
Takes cold showers
Loses their awareness
Acts like a camel
Then they grow a beard again and forget
That they grew it out the first time
They never did
Yeah they think they never did

Everybody shaves their head eventually
Soon enough grows it out
Throws away their couch
Plans another road trip
Takes on Sephiroth
Thinks about what they should’ve said to their crush
Then they shave their head again and forget
That they shaved it off the first time
They never did
Yeah they—never did
Track Name: Not a Film
I can’t look I am face forward flying through
Russian mountains
Thrilling the senses
The consensus is if we reach the summit
Without slowing
I’ll be lifted free on victory's shoulders
So that I could see above my father’s beard
Into the eyes I find I leave so much of me behind in other eyes

Human beings don’t want everyone else to be human beings
So I treat you like one but that doesn’t mean I’m not a human being
You’re just sweet, you’re just a lucky one for the time being
When the time being is done with you I go back to seeming like just another human being

Robert, please, look at me
See that this all a waste if you let it be
Don’t be mean, speak a little more and try to be something better than a human being
Rise above, rise above me, tattoo it on me
Rise above, rise above me, get away from me

On ne peut pas traiter tous les humains comme des humains
Et tu m’as dis “c’est pas un film, les meme regles s’applique dans toutes les langues, je suis
Juste une fille, juste une fille douce
Tu vois quand tu te dèbarasse du bruit
Tu m’as dis “c’est pas un film, it’s not a film, it’s not a film, it’s not a film...”

Robert, please, look at me
See that this all a waste if you let it be
Don’t be mean, speak a little more and try to be something better than a human being
Rise above, rise above me, tattoo it on me
Rise above, rise above me, get the fuck away from me

In Aix I found out why easy
In exile choose my eyes wisely
In Aix I'll choose my eyes wisely

Into the eyes I find I leave so much of me behind in other eyes
Track Name: Snowed In
greg:
I was snowed in at Tyler’s house
I couldn’t come tell you how I felt
I dreamed I wrote you a letter then I gave it to the wrong girl, now I live with it
Swim with it
Oh, but by the warm morning after the snow had blown from the blocking
Get up!
Now I face it
Swim with it

I just don’t see why we don’t talk, there’s a closure I’m seeking
Get up!
Now you face it
Swim with it

I know don’t know an answer but I do feel it coming closer to a point where I could kiss it
I dreamed it may be for the better
Ty said a kiss is for the books and I think it applies
I know what I deserve
But could I be something better?

kenny:
Confusing the hours with seconds again, aaahhh!
Compounding the hours the second we met
It's okay you're not sick, I feel it too
If we fall asleep, then we'll die, I know, I know
Laughing eyes all wide across the room

I'm sick, can't handle my heart high, no
But the sunrise hides night highs so low
It's just those so cold shivers yet heart's so warm

Should you let your guard down
I'll see your hypochondria
Should I let my guard down
You'd see my heart-highchondria

Just one more tunnel of our eyes
Before we die in our sleep
When I get dragged to my head by my INFP
Now I can't speak
If I could I'd just ask
If you would ditch your life and live with me

Confusing the hours with seconds again, aaahhh
I liked you more under what I showed
I liked you more under all this snow

tyler:
I know where time goes
To stitches sewn; a tux
To flowers grown; and cut and tossed
To the side of the road
Where his car was kissed
And his body thrown

So it's me
And you're you
And it's me
For you
Track Name: Tired Fists
It's gone back; you look good under a sunbrella
And it's sucking at your cheeks I'm kind of
Jealous but it just wants your freckles I'll let it
Kiss you, if you promise to come back when

My fingers graze your hands, I won’t shiver and quit
Now we carry what we’ve lost in our fists
Warm on our memories, digits dancing down your wrist
When the time’s right I’ll nudge you to drop when
Track Name: No More 19
No more nineteen I've fallen down
Do you sense your purpose inside her mouth?
I remember happy but it feels so good to frown
If I head north someday I can taste that sound

There's only so much you can figure out
But you'll make equal signs until you make em count
Did you kiss her face before you fucked her mouth?
Play the child games and you'll be down and out

No more nasty I've gotta shut my mouth
Elbows off the table I've figured out
I won't be so shallow even to myself
If I can find my 'flower' I'd be picked from the ground
