Track Name: Pretty
I feel my mind widening
And I’m glued to your ideas
You’re a wonderful story still unfolding

Then I remember you’re pretty
And my words turn silly
I go off day doze dreaming of kissing you right here

Can’t sleep
But I can hear the exponential morning chirp the blue out from the black

To keep me company
Track Name: This City
This city is a strange place
My mind unhinged from warped streets I navigate
Between the truths I sang and the cards that I played
This city makes the strangers all feel safe
With their nudgy hands and tilted face
To them the sights are straight
And when luck strikes two are picked from the pile and saved
Rapture to the countryside as gravity, is every force the same?
This city catches me when my insight’s tired and all I want is to waste
A tick in endless time and a speck in endless space
Track Name: Candy Baby
And I heard the whispering of a "come here kitty"
It was the whispering of a "come here kitty" that you followed
Candy baby, Candy baby
All prone to things unhealthy
Candy baby

And I put what was mine on a plane
On a plane to Lisbon
On a plane to Lisbon
Ingrid I long for you
To the point of I don’t know what to do
It placed an intangible weight on my shoulders
Ingrid I long for you

Candy baby
Find your way out
Of this maze

I saw it growing on your face
How can you say it’s not growing?
In the short breaths wedged between mistakes (we were catching glimpses)
I saw you floating

Asking you what your love has made
To me just seems your drama’s involving
I saw it growing on your face
How can you lie so bold knowing
Repetition dropped you the most obvious hints (but never did you fix it)
Yet all these gifts you’re given
All these gifts we’re given
Track Name: Water Balloon
You’re not ready to empty out your shell
You’ll be a water balloon burst on a tree one bright summer and some lucky grass will swell
And get to be the green and prickly ripped from earth and left there sticky
On your children’s backs
Itched arched like a bridge for ants to cross
On to the
Picnic with nitpicky hands grabbing at berries
To fill your stomach up full and heavy
I might be somebody’s mid daydream
As they daze off looking for what’s filling
Out in the woods grabbing red holly

You’re all ready to open up your arms
You’ll be a glass shard washed up round from the sea of some clumsy drunken kids who came to carve
Up the trash that ends up sanded to shell x-rays from the hands of
Man’s naïve rewards
God gives, must be something that we did to
Deserve all this dizzy spin walking for nothing
Watch as the worlds turning really is something
I might be somebody’s mid day dream
As they go out spinning for what’s lovely
I’m nausea that chokes laughing, what’s funny?
Track Name: Pretty 2
I feel my pulse racing
At the thought of your ideas
You’re a beautiful day dream I see in space staring

Then I remember you’re pretty
So my posture gets steady
You’re worth not forgetting
Track Name: Dark Wood Artist
Something orbits nothing to make you whole

Mustn’t let me be your artist or I’m gonna make you mine
Trust and let your own two hands draw your body up from grass

Coming out from the dark wood your dark gray
Is just shade to me
What did my artist mean?

When the wet snow tinged your gold hair a dark blue
Did you think of me
The way I dream of you?

Feet took you to the cold walk for four days
A gift I gave: the whole truth
Or a card I played
Track Name: Rainy Day
I’m hiding in the kitchen
You’re waiting with your ears perked up for a fidget
Climbed into the highest cabinet
But I’ll stay quiet
Crouched in silence
I’m practicing to be a spy

I’m setting out the puzzle
You’re waiting for the rain to stop by the window
I’m asking for a favor
I know it’s dumb
Because we know
The picture will be three wise wolves
But I like your repose
Like those too old
To be the spy

I’m cleaning out the attic
You’re sneezing will uncover the dusty paintings
I should really turn a light on
But I’ll be subtle
Feet be nimble
I’m practicing to be a ghost

Oh I’m sorry if I scared you
I was only playing around, I didn’t mean to

I like the doors that open
On the rare occasion when the rain is wanted

Rainy day
Trapped inside
Rainy day
Track Name: I've Never Had Sex
What do all those eyes mean?
Dead night
I’m alive
Feeling the same awe that every sun filled boy has stargazing
In amazement

Road so untraveled
Carry me I am still
Driving and crying with the sunshades on
Hiding my eyes from no one
From no one

And how my family’s house is so cozy and the same
And all the joy I brought myself by repeating a name
I want to die on a day not so far from today

Remember me
I won’t stay so close
Shaking on a sheet with a pretty little lover
Indecision as we both unveil each other
Unveiling a lover

And how my family’s house is so cozy and the same
And all the joy I brought myself by repeating a name
I want to die on a day not so far from today
Track Name: Sunbrella
It's gone back; you look good under a sunbrella
And its sucking at your cheeks I'm kinda
Jealous but it just wants your freckles I'll let it
Kiss you, if you promise to come back when

My fingers graze your arms, 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

I want to travel down the path that the sun takes
I want to dine with all things unhealthy and
Drop my possessions, become one with the sunbridge
Forget my first name and pretend I am dying

When we don’t kiss anymore, and make sure that our pasts
Make us laugh and look back to let the red
Fly out our cheeks we’ll squeeze the easy from our hands
Waving goodbye to old, even lost friends

Who’ve gone back; you look good under a sunbrella
And its sucking at your cheeks I'm kinda
Jealous but it just wants your freckles I'll let it
Kiss you, if you promise to come back when
Track Name: Coconut
When the rain’s sobs have gone on far too long
It’s starting to sound like the sky’s been shushing us
A crowd’s dull hum muddies up our first song

Then the next ones come like marching drums
Starting to sound like the sun’s been hunting us
A white flag flies, hiding chuckles at its trying so hard

This island is a very easy place
Here we don’t want to get away

When the chorus comes like waking up
Starting to feel like the songs been touching us
We don’t want to get away

I want to live in a tropical land
And so I come out to the island where the only umbrella sits in a sipping glass
I never realized that the sand could make the perfect bed for us to lay and daydream
Today I’m a cloud in the blue
Today I’m not thinking about me and you
This island

Well I was counting clouds in the puddles on the ground
Now they’re leaving me to be too un-intrigued to keep me looking down
I raise my sight to see no more black and grey just blue and green
Crooked lampposts, sunny trees, and birds I’ve never ever seen in the strange, strange city
I’m happy to be here

The most important thing is to feel important,
Do you feel important at all?
People who are- you are- you excited to see me, to be around me
So be around me
Making people smile, saying sorry like a child, makes things better, making things better
Hey Arnold!
Hey sunshine!
My caring mother
Always putting others, ahead
Driving at night watching memories pass me by

So be around me

Here the dull hums warm as “it’s been so long” hugs
It’s starting to come back to us
