Track Name: Lullabye
Lullabye

couldn’t sleep so sound last night.
couldn’t lie to yrself to feel right.
if I was there you would see.
with me near it let’s you believe.

not content with our time unspent
burning out my eyes
unnecessary thoughts
turn into lies.

you know it takes you away.
I know, I know it takes you away.
you know it takes you away.
I know, I know it takes you away.

so calm and so soundless.
eyelids down a perfect mess.
don’t wanna be the one caught stirring here.
so calm and so soundless.
eyelids down a perfect mess.
the only thing I want is you dear.

you know it takes you away.
I know, I know it takes you away.
you know it takes you away.
I know. I know it takes you away.

what’s the difference if everything’s the same?
is it my dream or my selfish game?
the answers to these questions where?
keep waking up to my blank stares.
like the sea-foamed waves crashing green
I wanna be the undertow. she’s never seen.

you know it takes you away.
I know, I know it takes you away.
you know it takes you away.
I know, I know it takes you away.
Track Name: Heavenly Gardens
Heavenly Gardens

Just a week after we last spoke…
everything good and right.
where’ve you been these last few nights?
no way to get in touch.

so far away, so alone
so far away, so alone

I know yr watching flying above.
elegant wings fit like a glove.
remember this and talk about that.
nearly made it a decade past dad.

always missed him so much.
dance with him, forever in love.

every day spent together again.
the times lost have now been found.
these times live above the ground.
every new day more profound.
these times live above the ground.
every new day more profound.

and now everyone’s here for you mom.
not much different than you were for us.
don’t mind the tears that slip from our cheeks.
enjoy the ride on the cloudy bus.

eulogies, we won’t forget.
eulogies, always remembered.

we know where you’ll be.
we know what you’ll be doing.
see I heard there’s endless miles.
endless miles of gardens in heaven.

so far away, so alone.
so far away, so alone.

every day spent together again.
the times lost have now been found.
these times live above the ground.
every new day more profound.
these times live above the ground.
every new day more profound.
Track Name: Making a Spectacle of Himself as Usual
Making a Spectacle of Himself As Usual

I wanna get lost underground
on a subway car minus the sound.
Found out. I’m not grounded anymore.
Shout out. I don’t listen anymore.

Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.
Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.

I wonder if anyone else gets lost too.
I wonder if this leads me to you.

Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.
Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.

I wanna get lost underground
on a subway car minus the sound.
Disregard everything else in the way.
Regardless, everyone’s got words to say.

Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.
Sitting, learning. Staring at the doors.
Watching, feeling. Surely unsure.
Track Name: Waiting
waiting

and after all that you said, I don’t remember a thing.
short attention span, where the hell have you been?
how’ve you been?
just when the times were good, was when you left this place.
now I’m left all alone, trying to see yr face. to see yr face.

just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.
just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.

and if there was a way, to go on forever…
we’d make the hours ours, then just daze for days
…and waste today
I don’t expect anything. I’m doing fine on my own.
there must be some reason you can’t stand to be alone
…yr not alone.

just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.
just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.

just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.
just calm down. it’ll be ok. just lie down. it goes away.
Track Name: The Important Thing Is That You Don't Stay Mad
Short fused.
Apology.
No more
Nights like these.
Deafen yrself
To what I say.
Open yr eyes.
Sometimes.

Yr so beautiful. When you stand there.
Like an angel, take care of me.
Like a baby, take time with me.

Yr so innocent.
Never meant you harm.
Like a secret.
Not telling me.
Like a leopard.
Already spotted me.
Like a leopard.
Already spotted me.

Yr so beautiful. When you stand there.
Like an angel, take care of me.
Like a baby, take time with me.

Complete. Convincingly.
One more night, stay please.
Listen to me, when you sleep.
Close yr eyes, let yr bad day die.

Let yr bad day die.

Take my hand.
Hold yr heart up.
Pull this sheet
From underneath.
Take my heart now.
Hold yr head up.
Put this sheet back
Where we sleep.

Yr so beautiful. When you stand there.
Like an angel, take care of me.
Like a baby, take time with me.

A Gentlewoman Never Tells

She thinks. She twists. She laughs. She fits. She screams. She lies. She blames. She dies.

She doesn’t get sad. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t give fucks. She never tells.
She doesn’t get sad. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t give fucks. She never tells.

She winks. She drinks. She smiles. She wins. She tries. She flies. She wines. She dines.

She doesn’t think first. She doesn’t care much. She doesn’t know love. She never tells.
She doesn’t think first. She doesn’t care much. She doesn’t know love. She never tells.

She thinks. She twists. She laughs. She fits. She screams. She lies. She blames. She dies.

She doesn’t get sad. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t give fucks. She never tells.
She doesn’t get sad. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t give fucks. She never tells.

She winks. She drinks. She smiles. She wins. She tries. She flies. She wines. She dines.

She doesn’t think first. She doesn’t care much. She doesn’t know love. She never tells.
She doesn’t think first. She doesn’t care much. She doesn’t know love. She never tells.

She doesn’t get sad. She doesn’t get mad. She doesn’t give fucks. She never tells.
She doesn’t think first. She doesn’t care much. She doesn’t know love. She never tells.
