Wander 03:39
Bright light fades away And the day is over I'm just trying to have fun I'm just trying to stay sober But she's moving on Night comes anyhow I'm just trying to wake up But there's something about it Black cab pulls away Ask me what I'm waving at Out walking her dog At three in the morning Montana born one of three kids Moved to Golden, Colorado When she was younger Married her high school sweetheart Had three kids Cared for her brother Settled in Littleton Just down the road From lookout mountain Coors and woods chapel Brightest light fades away Yeah I recognize the face But there's something about it

Yr Eyes 05:06
It's a cold sweat Oh no My desire will be my undoing In flesh tones of corrupted blood Dead branches of me and my lovers My creator woes her creation What innocence blanks generations Discontinue my continuation An extinction of me and my lovers One to the left one to the right Two demons on my shoulders keep me up at night Generations left ungenerated My desire will be my undoing I've been thinking about it I've been thinking about it I've been thinking about the legacy I'm leaving When it's stopped short it's unforgiving Then I wonder why I'm even living What hurt you so long, my bub? My bub, so long Sweat cold sweat cold sweat cold sweat My creator woes her creation What innocence blanks generations Discontinue my continuation Silent spring for me and my lovers And I know we ain't gonna meet in another life See it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes that you're gonna die Okay what am I Saying okay what am I But the son of such a saint who gave me her eyes I put 'em both to waste Cannot love or procreate I say my God I'm so ashamed you gave me her eyes Momma, I'm a waste It's a false start Oh no What warmth could feel this cold Family name no more All my ancestors lived for Afflictions and world wars Whole plagues that wiped generations out All they'd been surviving for Cut short by me and my lovers And I know we ain't gonna meet in another life See it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes that you're gonna die Okay what am I Saying okay what am I But the son of such a saint who gave me her eyes I put 'em both to waste Cannot love or procreate I say my God I'm so ashamed you gave me her eyes And I know we ain't gonna meet in another life See it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes I can see it in your eyes that you're gonna die Okay what am I Saying okay what am I But the son of such a saint who gave me her eyes I put 'em both to waste Cannot love or procreate I say my God I'm so ashamed you gave me her eyes Why can't we see the sunrise in the morning She leaves her only son behind in the morning Why can't we see the sunrise in the morning She leaves her only son behind in the morning

Oh how the clouds they float Over the conoco parking lot the day you went insane Back home you're talking to God Probably pulling strings for your children With Grandma, you told me it was helpful to say That everything would be fine, and that it was okay It was something you learned when Papa passed away A year in our new place October of '98 I hold your hand and say it's okay You know I don't believe it

Future 03:10
I wonder who we're gonna be When we get out of here And can go and live our lives I wonder who we're gonna be When we get out of here And can go and live our lives Red state mind of Littleton The closet we're stuck in Down the doors and run outside I wonder what we're gonna be When we get out of here And can finally live our lives Know it gets better The pain temporary We see our future A new day is coming I wonder who we're gonna be When we get out of here And can go and live our lives I wonder who we're gonna be When we get out of here And can go and live our lives Future's what we're waiting on In our church parking lot Where we go rehearse our lines I wonder what we're gonna be When we get out of here And can finally live our lives Know it gets better The pain temporary We see our future A new day is coming Our sense of purpose The gray skies are blurring May feel so helpless But we're gonna change things

Shrine 04:17
In the basement by the furnace Is a place I go to find my shrine Foreign players new objectives An escape from all the noise outside What is real but all this fiction Find my place in polygonal life And it feels so good I escape All my worries in this world Turn the power on and blue light Illuminate the cold of concrete walls In the basement by the furnace Is a place I go to find my shrine What is real but all this fiction Find my place in polygonal life And it feels so good I escape All my worries in this world Turn the power on and blue light Illuminate the cold of concrete walls There's a story for all of us Adventure beyond the high school halls And it feels so good I outgrow All I've ever been to this world

Bongo 05:40
Boy, you really screwed this one up Now the only one you're looking for Is God Are you all alone For the hell you were doing When I was back home Boy You're so You're so lost You know you did me wrong Mr. I'm incapable of love What's in Portland now I put my faith in you Still you did me wrong What's cruel, it seems to stick with you Like the waiting room of an ICU Boy You're so You're so lost You know you did me wrong Mr. I'm incapable Boy You're so You're so lost You know you did me wrong Mr. I'm incapable of love And I threw her copy In the garbage with her blessing No I'm not some wounded dog You just leave on the side of the road Bongos There's a whole world out there You can pretend to ignore But the one you'll no longer know Is ashes behind that door That you closed

Seven 04:38
Searching for a new beginning I don't know what I have left to prove A different kind of innocence Correcting all the wrong that people do I don't know what change is coming A softer soul could make mine feel so new What I need is new beginnings Not a different version of you So someone so someone Come be my light in the morning My light in the morning Come be the springtime by an ocean My lucky seven seven seven Dialed back on all my trusting Everyone I meet is so dull compared to you Instead of getting lost in conversations I'm stuck lacking in the patience I had with you Searching for a new beginning That could rival all I had back then with you But every time I sense a new beginning It always ends up right back here with you So someone so someone Come be my light in the morning My light in the morning Come be the springtime by an ocean My lucky seven seven seven No I don't like you, I just liked you I don't want you, I just had you I don't need you, I just needed you I don't love you, I just loved you

Voicemail 02:33
Got a magic device Now I can hear your voice from miles away And reach you And it makes me feel so good to know you're safe Was up waiting to hear from you What a relief Take care of my boy Take care of my boy Got a magic device I wanna hear all about your day And you know I wait up worried sick about you I feel so much better To know your safe Take care of my boy Take care of my boy And I know you have to go and live your life

Laniakea 04:10
My best bub May you get all you want And the city show you love you deserve And a strong someone Who won't run from your hurt When the water turns to salt I used to knock On the door to wake you up Late for the bus to school This knock on your door It isn't me anymore But you still have to wake up I raised you in the light of my love I raised you in the light of my love My bub

Parlour 03:48
Have you been here before Is there someone else you're trying to meet here Am I standing in As a stunt-double to look thru toward your ceiling Whose eyes are you seeing Whose figure are you fleeing Only hug me when you're leaving Can't feel what I'm feeling Sat down in a parlour A wall, not a mirror A wall, not a mirror

Civilian 05:52
I've been walking in circles in the back of my head Can someone please tell me where I am The whole world has shifted nothings where it had been Can someone please hug me or hold my hand I've been walking in circles in the back of my head Can someone please tell me where I am The whole world has shifted nothings where it had been Can someone please hug me or hold my hand An indictment call the lawyers Storm the lobby leave no witness Who's the victim who's the weakest They'll be singing like a canary I've been walking in circles in the back of my head Can someone please tell me where I am Need a checkup and a dentist Need a jackpot for my treatment To my lovers I am loveless And I'm drinking to forget this Lovely future with no witness My devices block my vision No survival no importance And I'm singing like a canary
