Track Name: Fire Palace
cascading down I'm frozen in time a knife half drawn out it’s mine I'll wave it about I saw you on the fire place your shirt was sticking out your look was so convincing thought you had it figured out but what you know now doesn't matter anyhow it'll all turn out the same what you do or say either way it'll all turn out okay you've gone and said too much and know too little you've gone and left us hanging in the wind I saw you in a turnstile with a paper cup in hand somehow informed so I side stepped and all at once taken back but I can't work out or say aloud cause one scene still reflects it’s trees sawn down and hauled 'cross town and piled up in a stack you've gone and left us hanging on to nothing you've gone and thrown the whole thing to the wind cascading down I'm frozen in time a knife half drawn out its mine I'll wave it about
Track Name: Backyard Dogs
the backyard dogs keep barking at me until I turn my head when my love comes walking slowly the dogs start up again it’s funny that I see you walking by it’s funny when I see you dance it’s funny I could see you everyday of my life sipping, slipping deeper in a bag of bubble wrap you lower down your eyes enough and lure me in your trap it’s funny that I see you walking by it’s funny when I see you dance it’s funny I could see you everyday of my life the backyard dogs keep barking at me till I turn my head when my love comes walking slowly the dogs start up again it’s funny that I see you walking by it’s funny when I see you dance it’s funny I could see you everyday of my life
Track Name: Luca
oh how we took flight bare hearts, bare souls, bare feet on a Saturday night and you stood in center stage saying everything must change and its funny to see how such events can leave imprints on your memory and now we both know that we'll never be the same we sang Luca, Luca is her name oh and how those girls did dance with their twirling skirts but you didn't even want to give them a chance till you hear what they rave about that's the art of missing out we took turns going round a mujer a mujer we were shouting out till we felt time turn upside down and we will never be the same we sang Luca, Luca is her name when you look into her eyes familiarity you’ll find, much to your surprise and then you'll realize that we have always been the same we sang Luca, Luca is her name
Track Name: Long List of Numbers
I watch them come breathing marching on a strange yearn for evening news talk show hosts the lights are on they're sleeping the bills are paid they keep me soldiering on it’s late, too late just wait, just wait it’s late, it’s late just wait, just wait a second guess is wrong take it at face all night long I dreamed but its not really happening its just a process in your brain it’s hot, stop please and simply need everything raw and sealed for packaging to a short line process for everything the seams will come undone sheep new to morning sun you'll crumble forced out, a shiny thriller oh no, he's a true killer lock him away picking strings underneath static dreams there's a purpose here there's a purpose here there's a purpose here, I guess.
I watch them come breathing marching on a strange yearn for evening news talk show hosts the lights are on they're sleeping the bills are paid they keep me soldiering on it’s late, too late just wait, just wait
Track Name: Infinite Whirl
hurry home to the vacuum of space the knowledge of worlds the mysteries of time pull your head from the fry pan now that you've done made up your mind fighting titans for fun since you're the sole survivor of all of their wars and all of their lies and all of your look alikes darlin, you know we would hold you in our arms again and again that’s the refrain that we run to again and again so hurry home to the vacuum of space the infinite whirl the happiest times they're reflected back still now bundled and bagged pushed out by the press your envelope life looking for a copy-write darlin, you know we would hold you in our arms again and again it’s the refrain that we run to again and again oh when it shows ever empty, this hole in the floor when will it go swept away in the headlines of old?
Track Name: Pirate's Handprints
drywall imported from another blood-drenched slum with pirates' handprints neatly covered hosts of lords and sons slowly sipping cups with thumbs raised to ensure the public our crime-rate is slowly dropping welcome to our homes our lives are safely tucked away all our walls of Jesus seem to wash our sins away I see you coming with book in hand you've gotta follow his every command that's what he wanted you hear me praying you know we hope for faith but oh the good lord is gonna set it straight
that's what he wanted drywall imported from another blood-drenched slum pirates' handprints neatly covered
Track Name: Henry & The Great Salt Lake
sat and watched the crowd for hours they came in waves and left their trash but he could never leave the laughter so it all came crumbling down she came inside with eyes like lanterns and knew the songs that soothed the crowd Henry knew they saw the same lights but it all came crumbling down so Henry jumped up on the table and hit the fixture with his head the drunken pools began to stumble as it all came crumbling down so they told jokes to fill the silence a moment where they both could live but neither stepped out far enough since it would all come crumbling down
Track Name: Missed Echo
what did you say when you walked away you said you'd come right back never came and left me smoking I know what you said about the walls and all you left that left you dead in a hall that ran for miles but I'll be there waiting with eyes closed and arms wide sing me the song the one you know about how it all went wrong in your head and left you useless now get you a drink will it help you speak
or forget the cars outside, flying by for just this moment cause I'll be there waiting
with eyes closed and arms wide
Track Name: Dogsmile
I hear the sirens complete the distance and if you stumble they'll write their part hey Mr. Bluejay that's perfect timing we make the dogs smile tongues hanging out it’s all decided pack up your suitcase we're going far, we're going fast to sit on ant hills that don't bite some of the same old crowd gathers in the same old town freedom some of the sweeter song louder than the day is long beat on four cornered rabbits out on the moss rocks frogs float in circles in the processing marsh hey Mr. Bluejay its your reflection another lounge chair for the lucky foot farm I don't know any other
as soon as I run some of the same old crowd gathers in the same old town
freedom some of the sweeter song louder than the day is long beat on
Track Name: Antithesis
I came home to cheer up my parents and best friends I showed late missed them they said I've lost myself again working for paychecks turned into footsteps walk up the staircase in time to
watch yourself fall down we go I didn't hear quite what you said I'm on my own as crowds of people pick my head why I said you’re all just hanging by a thread I might be dead but at least I'm not in here instead the cables tighten and raise up the rafters the windows are polished to clear up the trouble and here we go I didn't hear quite what you said I'm on my own as crowds of people pick my head why I said we’re all just hanging by a thread I might be dead at least I'm not in here instead ah ooo ah ooo ah ooo
