Track Name: mount home
give me good loving'
without the biting or a fussing
i want to feel you
from the front to the back to the middle
put me on the floor yeah

hanging out in the graveyard
yeah we are so cool now
drinking pints on the grass
right above the grave
of your long lost loved ones

hide and seek at midnight
something nefarious about this night
meeting up at the grave
with the oldest birthdate
is the name of the game now

see me in the moonlight

feed me to your heart girl
cut it up and work it out
i want to feel you
from the front to the back to the middle
put me on the floor yeah

hanging out in abandoned buildings
yeah this is a real smart thing
holding hands making friends
as we explore these tattered hallways

see me in the moonlight
Track Name: french missionary
Who will settle down, Mister visionary
Living his life as a French Missionary
Fleeing with his dreams
Can you hear the screams

I want to be a 100,000 paragraphs to read
I want to dye these pages with my acts courageous
make them last forever
bind and cover it in leather

Land is far away
I can see I can see I can see
the coast line fade away

Who will settle down, Mister visionary
Living his life as a French Missionary
Fleeing with his dreams
Can you hear the screams

I want to be a 100,000 paragraphs to read
I want to dye these pages with my acts courageous
make them last forever
bind and cover it in leather

Land is far away
I can see I can see I can see
the coast line fade away
Until I get on land
I will write with both hands
The story of the places
and all of the faces
every wrinkle every dimple
and that one hair that was out of place
Track Name: fuzzy
hey girl i want to know
why bad lighting in the pictures
make the subject glow... a little fuzzier
too bad it couldn't be
your almond eyes staring
my direction could it be

a little fuzzier
a little fuzzier
a little fuzzier

on and on and on and on
set that f stop depth of field
on and on and on and on
take a step back but don't focus again

a little fuzzier
a little fuzzier
a little fuzzier

hey girl i want to know
why bad lighting in the pictures
make the subject glow, a little fuzzier

hey girl can you see
that soft focus fits the
foreground so naturally

look at the development
overexposure fits the image
it is relevant

a little fuzzier

on and on and on and on
set that f stop depth of field
on and on and on and on
take a step back but don't focus again

hey girl i want to know
why bad lighting in the pictures
make the subject glow

too bad it couldn’t be
your almond eyes staring
my direction could it be
Track Name: ditch (featuring Abbey Brooks)
Rain drops fool roses
and buildings with ditches
time and time again all the time

Filled with 12 reasons
all the time
and raindrops mean flowers
on the vines

Why do you dig
when do we die
all the reference is yours
and mine

so when we

fly away like a gull
out at sea x2
as we fly away

when we fly we float along
we're singing we're singing
fun loving songs
all alone

Women are witches
with pointed brail noses
takin' our money
for their looks

My man is so scary
when he drinks overtime
I'll wait till the moring
stay alive

at that time I'll walk
to the corner shop
then I run
and you can't see that...

Raindrops bring roses
roses bring thorns
you can be painful
all the time

Wait a minute
I can't see what your writing on the page
wait a minute
I can't see further down the line
ohhh

Rains drops bring flowers
my hands are shakey
triming the roses
off the vine

I stand digging ditches
to bury the roses
pedal by pedal
through the night

Wait a minute
I can't see what your writing on the page
wait a minute
I can't see further down the line
when we fly we float along
we’re singing, we’re singing
such fun loving songs
all alone
Track Name: match-e-bee-mash-she-wish
The Mirage, Boiling Water
Many poets, and authors
Three Ships
Mound builders
Left their beginnings
so let's start digging

Left their beginnings
so let's start digging
Left their beginnings
so let's start digging

and we start with the beginning
As we are building
(a life in this funny place,
exterminate the moundbuilders)
this is good living
until we are giving
(a treaty makes us move to
MATCH-E-BE-NASH-E-WISH)

Chicago threatened to open the land
How it grew, so fast, so white

Kicked out

these people
Left their beginnings
so let's start digging

Left their beginnings
so let's start digging

Start from the Beginning
as we start building
(a life in this funny place
exterminate the tent builders)
This is good living
now that we have given
(a treaty makes them move to
MATCH-E-BE-NASH-E-WISH)
Track Name: eagle
Hear me shouting from a real low place, heeeeeey!
got a package on the front porch,
gonna open it, gonna open it
Today……….
Sent from a far away place, like the Hauge

Send it back now
with ample postage to
send it right back to
5517

Hear me shouting from a real high place, heeeeeeey!
I can see for miles and miles
all the buildings look so small look so far
Away….
Like sitting on the Eagles Nest

on top of the mouton

Send it back now
with ample postage to
send it right back to
1917

Hear me shouting in my sleep
we were just dreaming
dreaming of demons
dreaming of you
Track Name: bear
bear sits up in the morning warning
she looks over her shoulder hold her
moon breaks sun breath in the night sky
bear breaks pose both teeth and claws will fly

oh ohhhh oh oh x2

my gran told me
a family story
about the longing bears, village stares
and their empty guts

the food supply suspended
12 feet! see it in the sky line
4 feet! away from the trunk of the
tree!

bear sits up in the morning warning
she looks over her shoulder hold her
moon breaks sun breath in the night sky
bear breaks pose both teeth and claws will fly

bear grew strong
pull down tree
eat up food
stored for our family

hungry and cold
we grew strong (and smart)
now wearing the bears
Track Name: rivers
Your state is a village
Your state is a village

There's a stone in the center of our town
That tells of people who are lost

This is the River
This is the River

Just a stones throw away from this town
Just a stones throw away from this town

My new state is the Highway
on overdrive (overdrive) overdrive
Faster, faster, faster
on the Interstate (interstate) interstate
That once was a river

Your state is a village
Your state is a village

There's a place I loved to go when I was young
Now it's lots of people's homes

This is the development
This is the development

Just a stones throw away from this town
Just a stones throw away from this town

Here's the places we loved to go when we were young
There's the places we loved to go when we were young
Here's the places we loved to go when we were young
There's the places we loved to go when we were young
Young and Dumb

My new state is the Highway
on overdrive (overdrive) overdrive
Faster, faster, faster
on the Interstate (interstate) interstate
My new state is getting outta here (outta here) outta here
As fast as we can
On this river

This is the Development
Track Name: 1149
on the floor
there’s a bottle over there
and I want to stop and stare at
it Started at 11:49
you hit the floor
with two or three or more

You get started
I’ve departed

Gave too much
my capacity is full
I’m losing my marbles
I’m outta controll

at your door
there’s a bottle over there
and I want to stop and stare at
it Started at 11:49
you hit the floor
with two or three or more

You get started
I’ve departed

Gave too much
my capacity is full
I’m losing my marbles
I’m outta controll
I’m outta controll
Dangerous but sincere
outta controll
Innocent and in the clear
outta controll

on the floor
there’s a bottle over there
and I want to stop and stare at
it Started at 11:49
you hit the floor
with two or three or more
Track Name: screaming jenny
Take you time, Screaming Jenny
Went running for some aid
when the fire had laid
its weary hands down on your dress

Storage sheds along the tracks
where we laid our heads in rest
winter wind creeping in
snuck through the cracks, fire starts

to warm our cold tired feet
we keep them close
to the heat of the fire

Take you time, Screaming Jenny
Went running for some aid
when the fire had laid
its weary hands down on your dress

She didn’t notice, her flaming clothes
fire had burnt through heavy wool
and then began to scorch the meaning of her soul

Leaping in terror, threw soup from her cup
into the flames, it did not douse
Licking flames
Flee the shack, along the tracks

Screeming, looking at any one for help
Screaming, as the flames begin to engulf her body
flames begin to engulf her body

Take you time, Screaming Jenny
Went running for some aid
when the fire had laid
its weary hands down on your dress

She didn’t notice, her flaming clothes
fire had burnt through heavy wool
and then began to scorch the meaning of her soul

Stammering fast, stumbled onto the tracks
the train headed round the bend
it had only began to slow when
it released her soul

Track Name: snow city
it's raining cold snow coming down
ice forming on the tracks
makes it hard to get out
you gave me extra weight
to lend better traction

we have made the tracks
we have made the tracks
ice and water is waining
frozen water waining away
making muddy water
the sludge the mud
we have to push through

it's raining cold snow coming down
ice forming on the tracks
makes it hard to get out
you gave me extra weight
to lend better traction

so many wheels produce a little heat
enough to reveal the path below

two tracks
