Track Name: Ghosts
Creak in the floor
Crack in the door
I’m letting it in
So I can begin

Out in the woods
Out on the street
Misunderstood
Nobody sees

I hear your silent footsteps fall
I hear them echo through the hall
But there’s no one there at all

Just let it go
Let it run wild
Holding it in
Isn’t your style
I could belong
I could begin
Singing my songs
Just let me in

I hear your voice inside my head
And then my thoughts start to turn red
As I burn inside my bed
Wanting you instead

What is love
What is life
What is above
What is right
Who are these
Protecting me
What does it mean
Why did you leave?

I hear your voice beside my ear
And then one by one the tears
Start to disappear
When you’re with me are you free?
And if you let me see
Will it frighten me?

You free flow
Like sweet smoke
When I play my songs
I don’t know
So I just hope
I’ll belong without you
Tangled up in this blue groove

Creak in the door
Crack in the floor
I’m letting it in
So I can begin
Track Name: Time To Go Home
Staring out the window at the morning rain
Talking to myself ‘cause it's less of a strain
than talking to you when I don’t know who I’m talking to

Wondering why I miss you and why I don’t
Won’t let you forget me on the telephone
When I forget you too it makes me feel so blue

But I got a feeling that I’m being too revealing
Gotta get my mind off the ceiling and come down
Your words are full of meaning and it’s all got me reeling
And I can’t speak without the feeling of breaking down
And that’s when I know
It’s time to go home

The green grass that grew there is covered in snow
Everything is dormant underneath the flow
With which I must go
so on with the show
Listening to the voices on the radio
I can hear the footsteps of my shadow
But it’s moving slow
It’s moving way too slow

But I got a feeling that I’m being too revealing
Gotta get my mind off the ceiling and come down
Your words are full of meaning and it’s all got me reeling
And I can’t speak without the feeling of breaking down
And that’s when I know
It’s time to go

That's when I know it’s time to go home
I get so tired, so uninspired
And I just wanna be alone
And that’s when I know
It’s time to go home
Track Name: Mutants, Drugs, & Television
What is it about me that makes me so transparent?
Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass?
and what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision
Are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television?

Those boys in the hall standing next to the grease vending machine
have eyes like lasers, the red lights of being 17
and they’re watching my form decompose
like my skin is made of glass
like I’m wearing water for clothes

I wanna cash my paycheck
See if anyone wants me to stay
Tired of watching you focus on what’s behind me anyway
I’m gonna catch a bus and go away
I’m just gonna catch a buzz and go away

Does she love you
Does she care for you
Does she do all that she can
Do you love her
Do you care for her
I don’t think you understand

Well maybe I’m not the real thing
Maybe I’m just a decoy
Maybe I was just put in this field
For you to take aim and destroy
I have no occupation
other than these meditations
about giving out my retaliation

What is it about me that makes me so transparent?
Am I doomed to be trapped like water in a glass?
& what is it about them that gives them X-Ray vision
are they mutants, is it drugs, or is it television?
Track Name: On & On
The moon looks paler
When all the lights are on
I’m like a sailor
Who has been lost too long
I need it to guide me
All the way back to my home
This loss of time chides me
Wherever I roam

And on and on and on it goes
Where it stops no one knows
I don’t wanna let it go
wherever the seasons go
I don’t wanna let it go
But I know it will

I get so tired
I’ve been riding my own wheels too long
And I’m uninspired
With the same old songs
When I blow out the candles
On my birthday cake
The resulting déjà vu is
More than I can take

And on and on and on it goes
Where it stops no one knows
I don’t wanna let it go
wherever the seasons go
I don’t wanna let it go
But I know it will

I try to catch the daylight
So I can watch the change
But I’m left with nothing
But the death of these days
Fall turns to winter
And winter turns to spring
Spring becomes summer
And I can’t remember anything

And on and on and on it goes
Where it stops no one knows
I don’t wanna let it go
wherever the seasons go
I don’t wanna let it go
But I know it will
Track Name: Bits of You
Oh when will I see you
The question cuts in
Through the layers of composure
Built through time on my skin

I’m not one for patience
And I don’t hold up well
I’m like a raincloud about to open
And make your river swell

‘cause I don’t know what to do
with these left over bits of you
you’ve given me so many tales of truth
that I don’t know which one is true

Well the bridge will be broken
for the 50th time
probably from all the stuff I threw off of it
another one of my childhood crimes

and the road will be flooded
so you’ll have to go around
and find another way of talking to me
than your loud words without sound

‘cause I don’t know what to do
with these left over bits of you
you’ve given me so many tales of truth
that I don’t know which one is true

Oh when will I see you
The question cuts in
Through the layers of composure
Built through time on my skin
Track Name: Caught Washing Windows
The scene outside my window
makes me crave each drop of rain
that's running, running over your veins
so I pull up the lashes, take the water off the pane
and it goes pouring, pouring down your drain

'cause it's you
baby there's just something about you
that for you I would do anything

The demons in the waters are a vertical milieu
of horizontal dreams coming straight for you
but I will be there paddling a canoe to rescue you
and you might not understand but at least you'll know it's true

that it's you
baby there's just something about you
that for you I would do anything

Watching you through these eyes makes you blurry to behold
Tears are welling, welling then falling down cold
So I blink my eyelids like squeegees on your glass
And it all fades away, and it all fogs up so fast

when it's you
'cause baby there's just something about you
that for you I would do anything

Caught washing windows today
Waxing poetic off / on leaving grey
With tears streaking down, you persuade me to stay
and I'm glued
'cause it's so colorful, it's so crude
and it's so beautiful, 'cause it's you

because it's you
baby there's just something about you
that for you I would do anything
Track Name: Thank You
Here is a song
you can all sing along
I know you’ve been there
Feeling things as unfair

I don’t know a lot but I know the basic plot
Once it was, and now it’s not
Where do we belong in this endless throng
Of joy and despair
And does anybody care

I know you do
You always do
Whenever I need you to
You speak the truth
And sometimes, you know that is rare
So thank you thank you
I never thought you didn’t care
Thank you, thank you
I always knew you’d be there

Sometimes it depends on the weather
Whether my friends are in the lines
And that’s fine
But when the lightning strikes me
I see you so clearly
Always asking all about me
And when the thunder crashes me down
I know that you’re around
And that’s the ground I’ve been seeking
So glad I found you

Oh you
you always do
Whenever I need you to
You speak the truth
And sometimes that is rare
So thank you, thank you
I never thought you didn't care
Thank you, thank you
I always knew you'd be there

How do you always know my mind?
How do you always know my mind all the time?

You must be supernatural !

Thank you, thank you
I never thought you didn't care
Track Name: Metro Taxi
Wake me up when the rain lets up
I’ll be waiting
Made my tea in a traveling cup
I’m contemplating
Leaving in your taxi
But my credit’s all maxed out
So I’ll weep in the back seat
While the radio twists and shouts

Helped myself to some self help
In the hotel lobby
If I medicate myself
Will you still sell me
Semi hot coffee in the airport lounge
And will you help me get my feet up off the ground?

Time is ticking away
Faster every day
Faster than the counter beside the steering wheel
Could mean disaster
Please tell me its not real

It’s not that I’m afraid to die
I just want this plank out of my eye
Am I afraid of life?
It seems I’m always stuck in traffic
My chronometrophobic ways (the counter’s moving)
Create an exhausted haze (mirror facing)
Outside my window there’s a great big world
I can’t decide though
Looks like a tilt-a-whirl

Time is ticking away
Faster every day
Faster than the counter beside the steering wheel
Could mean disaster
Please tell me its not real

Gotta heat the house
gotta keep the lights on
gotta keep things running right
it’s a danger zone to think about it
and it makes me feel uptight
but I’m alright, I’m OK
just gotta try a little harder
and I know someday I’ll get brave
and finally crank the starter

had some thoughts of a traveling song in a metro taxi
had these thoughts of traveling on in a metro taxi

stuck in a metro taxi
stuck in a metro taxi
stuck in a metro taxi
Track Name: Beautiful Boys
God’s gift to you
Is passed out on the floor tonight
You remove his shoes
Just like when he was four, and it was alright
Used to be so carefree
Just climbing trees with scraped arms
and skinned knees
now it’s all I can do
just to talk to you

'cause you’re one of those
Beautiful boys

I know you
I’ve seen you before today
Standing cool and aloof
In some popular girl’s doorway
Even if I could talk to you
I wouldn’t have a single clue
What to say
And so I remain, chained
To imaginary escapades
And so I remain just another face
In the stranger’s parade

'cause you're one of those
beautiful boys

How do I get through
The candy coated cool
Tell me how do I get through to you
I would never want to change you
Or hold you down

Beautiful, beautiful boys
Frustrate me, as much as I enjoy
Beautiful boys

God's gift to you
is passed out on the floor, alright
there's no getting through
the candy coated cool tonight
Track Name: Set On You
I got nerve
I got desire
And my mind is set on the love I get from you
I got a soul
That wants to go higher
And it wants to fly into the sky of you
‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you

I’ve just got to get myself to you
‘cause I just can’t wait to find out
what your sweet love can do
so I’ll drive it home
I’ll drive it straight on through
‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you

I got arms
That seek your fire
And they will not rest till they’re tightly pressed ‘round you
I’ve got drive
I’ve got power
And I will use up all my waking hours
Just to get to you I’ll drive all night through
‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you

I’ve just got to get myself to you
‘cause I just can’t wait to find out
what your sweet love can do
so I’ll drive it home
I’ll drive it straight on through
‘cause my mind is set on the love I get from you
Track Name: Your Alien Love
Stumbling through the nethers of my mind
Haven’t been here in a while
I’m not sure what I’ll find
But I’m hiding from the junkyard dogs of your letters
Sniffing out the best in me which quite frankly could be better
Tonight

Your alien love
has temporarily crippled me
keep holding out your hands
I'll learn to walk eventually

This disease of a winter is like a long stormy weekend
Like a vulnerable tree
I'll just break till I learn to bend
and every snowflake is a longing for spring
in a different shape
I’m at the shrine of Keats’ Melancholy
Trying to burst joy’s grape

Your alien love
Has temporarily crippled me
Keep holding out your hands
I’ll learn to walk eventually
