Track Name: 94
Half alone the starlet sits
Like a song she holds a fifth
Stationed by the exit sign
Her target eyes, their darts a flyin’

Some people die alone
She won’t

When my eyes got stuck to her breasts she’d play it off
and touch her neck
Waking up to go again, the bed as our
Noah’s arc

Some people die alone
Well she won’t

And I’ll find someone
close enough

'Cause I’ll never know

Working on junk yard trucks
Changing oil for a buck
You could stay the night, my place is usually better
I’m usually better

I’m gonna die alone
This I know
And you’ll find someone
new to love

But I want you more
I want you more
I want you more

'Cause I’ll never know

So where was I when you were young?
You’re 94, I’m 21
Track Name: Make You Love Me
On the night shore
in words worth speaking
You said silence means more
than talking cheaply

I stole the words of a great loved
writer I read once
In the backseat scheming
how to make you love me

And on the night floor
yourself worth wasting
By the morning adored
then back to aching

I hold the urn of
a past love
And it’s pouring out on me

In the black deep
seeing how to make you love me
Track Name: Giving Up
Slow burning ice
What’s the point of dripping all night?

Your knuckles brushed my side
And my embarrassing lines from burgers and fries

Four hours before we turn the t.v. down low

I’m giving up
I’m giving up
Giving up I fall inside you

Contrasting force
It’s just an old sake love make

To cover up the cold
We wear desire’s blindfold

A class style report
A paper maché volcano

I’m giving up
I’m giving up
Giving up I fall inside you

Given up
Given up
Given up I fall in
Track Name: Patients
Sick of sacrifices taking time
Wasting all your crosses crucifying
anyone who sees your skin inside
You’re staring at the window, not outside

So don’t have anybody
And don't stay here waiting on me

You’re telling all the patients like you know
what surgery will save them, course you don’t
So now you face the families crying outside
You never was a doctor, thought you’d try

So don’t have money on me
when you go kill everybody
And don’t stay, don’t touch, don’t hold me
'Cause you think it don’t hurt when it’s killing

Your cloak of aspiration lives and dies
Your dreams all get recycled a thousand times
A thousand times

So don't have anybody
And don't stay here waiting on me
Track Name: Figurine
More than any candor can
Sorrow shows you

Till I can see your deepest crease
and I’m inside your inside seams

Crossed my lines in your circuitry
Plastic eyes, I’m a figurine

And more than any Sibyl can
Sorrow knows you
And it can see your deepest crease
and slips inside your inside seams

I’m on your shelf while you try to sleep
Come back to life you can play with me

You can play with me

Killing time
You worked till 5:03, and drove toward the trees
You stood outside
Looked at the frozen creek, thought about the sea

And more than any candor can
Sorrow shows you
that you can’t choose your fantasies
but you decide if i’m a figurine

Laid on your side while you watched me sleep
Kissed both my eyes you could smell the sea
Track Name: Blue Night
I was always raised
there’s two types of pain
The kind you talk about
and the kind you don’t talk about

But as for joy, it's all the same
As the blue night burned to grey
You were all that I’d need
Chewing gum on my jeans

And I won’t live in doubt

You saw a seam inside of me
And all the pieces, what I mean is
that all this just has a weight
And I can’t wait
to watch it weigh in

And so it’s like he said
on a Chelsea hotel bed
That I don’t need you
I just need you

Well there’s a lot I’d like to say
But you’re a lot to scare away
So as long as you need
is as long as I need

And I won’t live in doubt

You saw a seam inside of me
And all the pieces, what I mean is
that all this just has a weight
And I can’t wait
to watch it weigh in

So take my mind and slip away
When we were soaked below the waist
When you saw my life
and I saw your life
