Track Name: Crowded Car
throw back your golden hair and
show me your smile
I used to hold you when you cried
and don't you get into that
crowded car
stay here with me, right where you are

you're not there anymore
you're like anyone
who's ever heard anything
they didn't want to see

I prayed for storms to come
then you would call
when I came you weren't scared at all
have you heard this before
or is this all news to you
my view's too thick to see straight through

throw back your golden hair and
show me your smile
I used to hold you when you cried
and don't you get into that
crowded car
stay here with me right where you are
Track Name: Window Song
what is this all about
go outside and there's eggshells out my window
man you were screaming out
what is all this stuff outside my window

maybe you never noticed 'cause you're gone
your eyes and ears, they don't work at all

what was he singing out
driving round town
throwing shit out his window
we can learn so much from someone like him
just get it out of my face
it's no longer my problem
sitting at home all alone
staring out your window
yeah you check your telephone but no one calls
as you stare outside your window

maybe I never noticed cause I was gone
my eyes and ears, they don't work at all

what is this all about
go outside and there's eggshells out my window
and you were screaming out
what is all this stuff outside my window

maybe you never noticed cause you're gone
your eyes and ears, they don't work at all
Track Name: Jimmy Wright
I told you yesterday
giddy up horse, don't miss the train
and when we catch that train
we'll rob 'em blind and ride away
but Jimmy says that he won't go
says it's not the way he thinks he wants to know
and the water ain't that cold
so I tasted, watched it, all of us to stone
now bloody murder, hell I'd scream
till the last one falls or runs away from me
and Jimmy Wright can't say a thing
he minds his height and asks how I'm doing

Jimmy Wright
he loves them kites
but he should have known they'd never bring him back a thing
and when he sings
about holding strings
its just the typical cliche in every way
oh its nothing, is it Jimmy?

often times I hesitate
when all these words begin to pull some weight
and colors fade and changes shape
and love that's left to die starts to decay
and Jimmy says,
you just confessed to me
the cause of your concern that shakes your leaves
you dirty scoundrels slip away
to neon lights that mock the day

yeah but Jimmy Wright
he loves them kites
but he should have known they'd never bring him back a thing
stil, when he sings
about holding strings
it's just the typical cliche in every way
oh no it's nothing, now is it Jimmy?

(he can sail down the river if he wants to)
Track Name: Dropping Coins
I lost my suitcase in the water
just doing my best to try to float on it
this punctured ceiling's unfamiliar but
the voodoo lady's pretty set on it

we move through languages
as we slide between the walls
the times they move all around us as
we hang upside down dropping coins singing

please pass me ruse
across the table
keep looking for rooms
in the house you built yourself

in all the ways you hang me down
confused and proud
Track Name: Tired & Lonely
I'm tired and lonely
I know I'm not the only
living dog barking up everybody else's tree
I'm so high above you
I could love you
I could give you all of my precious time

but you just stroll on by and pay no attention
to a single passerby
and I can't hold my breath for your attention
I will surely break down and die

I'm tired and lonely
I guess I'm the only
living dog barking up everybody else's tree
I was so high above you
I could love you
I could give you all of my precious time

but you just stroll on by and pay no attention
to me or a single passerby
and I can't hold myself together forever
well it's not worth the try

I'm tired and lonely
I know I'm not the only
living dog barking up everyone else's tree
I swear I could love you
if you want to
just give me all of your precious time

and we could stroll on by and pay no attention
to a single passerby
and through our eyes and rings we'll be suspended
and we'll never turn our heads

I'm tired and lonely
I know I'm not the only
living dog that's been barking up everybody else's tree
I'm so high above you
to think I could love you
it was all just a big waste of my precious time
