Track Name: Ride pt.1
Ride Pt. 1

Come take a ride with me
Come take a ride with me
Look deep inside of me
Come on get high with me
Come take a ride with me (on our gray ship)
Come take a ride with me (the electronic)
Look deep inside of me (isometric)
Come on get high with me (isometric isometric)
Track Name: Start Over
Start Over

I dreamt that we won in the landslide of landslides
Built on a fault line and last night was high time for the quake
If this is the spot I guess I just thought
There’d be something more to lift us up
But the space in my shoes is occupied

I fell in love here under blankets over eggshells
Trading a name for some fate more convenient

If this is the spot I guess I just thought
There’d be something more than what I got
But the space in my head is occupied
Is occupied
Is occupied
I’m falling to god and the worst part of all is
I don’t care what I’m falling on

I dreamt that we won
It was a nightmare
A nightmare but then I awoke
The morning sun pours over us a light to start over
The ties of our lives are coming undone
In the light to start over
The light to start over
Track Name: The Last Hundred Years War
The Last Hundred Years War

I have spent my life just watching lilacs growing
And I have found in time there’s little use in the knowing

Of what turn we took when we went wrong
Or how I’d write you a better song
If the last hundred years war wasn’t going on
Dry your sad eyes and try to look on the bright side
The times when we cry are times when we’re most alive
But it ain’t easy to say goodbye
And I’m not asking you to try
But the last hundred years war is flying by

I have tried but I can’t lie I still don’t know what turns you on
So come inside the firelight I’ll put on your new favorite red record
I tried to remember what I lost
I found out but I forgot
That the last hundred years war
The last hundred years war
The last hundred years war is being fought
Track Name: Killer In The Trees
Killer In The Trees

A killer in the trees waiting for the season to change
Crawling through the leaves
And polishing his claws with his teeth
And every sour word that you have heard he stirs
A lover off the leash lapping up his last lover’s lead
He’s hoping that the seeds won’t bury the scent of the scene
And every once and a while he looks around, but not now
And the killer’s crawling like a criminal on the ground
And the lover says I don’t want to fight you
I just want to lie here
This ain’t the first time I’ve seen you by here
I don’t want your money I just want the miles
Throw the first born on the fire
Now the killer’s looking green he’s never met a lover so lean
Or maybe it’s the heat clouding up his killer instinct
But something about the lover don’t seem right in his eyes
The lover’s love could save a thousand more
Than are killed in the killer’s war
And the killer screams I don’t want to fight you
I just want to lie here
This ain’t the first time I’ve happened by here
I don’t want your money I just want the miles
Throw the first born on the fire
Throw the first born on the fire
I don’t want your family I just want the files
Throw the first born on the fire
Save the smooth talk this ain’t the Bible
Throw the first born on the fire
Throw the first born on the fire
Throw the first born on the fire
Track Name: Under The Radar
Under The Radar

I don’t know what got into me, oh lord
I got lost in my own shoes under the radar
And I don’t know what got into you, oh lord
You acted like you’d seen a ghost in me so hollow
And I just wanted to say I’m sorry
I don’t know what got into me, oh lord
If you think I lost my cool I think my cool’s worth losing
I don’t know what got into me, oh lord
I make dives inside my mind I’ve no way of explaining
And I just wanted to say I’m sorry
I am calling to say I’m sorry
I am calling to say I’m sorry
I am calling to say I’m sorry
I don’t know what got into me, oh lord
Track Name: Seafoam Shark
Seafoam Shark

Twitching muscles and forking tongues
Could spit out summertime from winter lungs
I got your number from a call-in show
With empty ovals where the numbers go
Aging eyelids over focused eyes
Can make you believe what you’ll know are lies
I got your full name from the message you sent
With empty ovals where the vowels went in
Oh the seafoam shark
The seafoam shark
The seafoam shark
In the seafoam shark
When the jeep won’t start
Take the seafoam shark
The seafoam shark to the seafoam
