94 03:10
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

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

Giving Up 02:55
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

Patients 03:39
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

Figurine 04:41
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

Blue Night 04:30
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
