Track Name: Look Out Below
The world is changing you say
And I wonder how you know
Locked up in your observatory
While I'm looking out below
And I remember what you said
My how you've grown
You've come such a long way
From breaking all of my bones
'Cuz I'm a malfunctioning machine
And I wasn't built for love
'Cuz I know just where it leads
I know they're out for blood
I'm the sum of broken parts
In a golden age affair
We made love in your projector reel
Hidden underneath the stairs
Track Name: The Rest of Me
Been cast in the ensemble
and you're trying to understand
black ink pneumonic novels
written in the backs of your hands

you're gonna go out there and sell it
you're gonna give em all you got
'cause this is the home you know

Child of summer
there's a great big bummer in the works
and it's all for you
Child of summer
better learn to suffer like the rest
before you speak your peace
'Cause the cold is coming
so you best start running
lest you end up with the same disease
as the rest of me

Mountain daughter is sitting up in the rafters
and I think she's bout to pull me in
Mountain daughter is chilling up in the rafters
and I say she looks a lot like me

(we stood at the window and looked out at the snow falling behind the fluorescent oasis sign with it's squiggly palm tree. "Look" he said, "It's snowing in the desert.")

Child of summer
there's a great big bummer in the works
and it's all for you
Child of summer
better learn to suffer like the rest
before you speak your peace
'Cause the cold is coming
so you best start running
lest you end up with the same disease
as the rest of me
Track Name: Twist My Arm
Saline Solutions
Say hello to sutures
I started howling
Too young to lose you

Guilty and quiet
Silent and deadly
I know it didn't take much to forget me
You ask me "Who am I?"
and I say "Where am I?"
and "Is it my turn to speak?"
if so, do you do it for fun?

I hate it when you twist my arm
and you dig too deep
and I hate the way
You don't even flinch

Angry and violent
burnt out and tired
I hope you get all the kicks you desire out of me

I say it's over I say it's done
I can take care of both of my lungs on my own
Track Name: Meteor Shower
Spent too much time on airplanes
staring at the tessellations down below
I pictured the bliss in falling
I'm wondering how far this feeling is willing to go
Before my twisted spine
Is the only language left that I still know
Hopefully I will turn to dust on the way down

Whoever finds me lying there won't have seen it for themselves
You've just been living comfortably and it's treating you like hell
Whoever finds me lying there contorted in the dirt
won't stop to think my swan song is the best they've ever heard
However they dispose of me under stone or with the wind
It won't do to bring my glory back I can't relive the end
Track Name: Eagles Peak
There's a shrieking at dawn
There's a bullet for the fawn
I cracked myself open
You were already gone

There's a cavern in the wall
Where the black cat came and saw
all the different ways you make me whole

I got lost along the way, to the eyrie where you stay
called on to do the hunting but baby I'm just prey
I got lost along the way, to the eyrie where you stay
Twenty dollars keeps your place in the rambles of king James.

There's a fire in the lake, and knowing the guts it takes
You stand right in it's wake, and manage to best the blaze
There's a caller at night, there are fortunate ties.
That remind me of the ways you keep me whole.

I got lost along the way, to the eyrie where you stay
called on to do the hunting but baby I'm just prey
I got lost along the way, to the eyrie where you stay
Twenty dollars keeps your place in the rambles of king James.
Track Name: Boathouse Row
Mama I suppose you don't know the backroad anymore. Designer boat shoes and polo, timid matador. Jersey girl is on the run, to the city where it's easier to breathe. Boathouse row is thinking less of me. Got a lust for life, a ring, and brand new teeth. Love birds are dropping like flies, I think his patience is likewise. I hope the same of your contrite, 'cuz it doesn't seem to sit right. Jersey girl is on the run, to the city where it's easier to breathe. Boathouse row is thinking less of me. Got a lust for life, a ring, and brand new teeth. You swear to him that this is all you need, but boathouse row is thinking less of me.
Track Name: Benny and The West
The talkshow punk is wondering if his next line's enough to shake em up
He's gonna shake em up
and when his pitchfork hits the ceiling he's not sure if he even believes himself
In himself.

Oh contrarian, you ripped your tongue right off of the rails again
You think you're scaring them? You spit it fast but all it takes is a hand to lend.
You do your 'sacred' work, the look on your face whenever you misplace a word.
You're gonna make it hurt, spitting butane in the face of campus fireworks.

Follow you down, the easy way out.
Looks like you know your way around.
Strike me down, Puget sound.
Strike me down, from an ivory tower.

Oh contrarian, you ripped your tongue right off of the rails again
You think you're scaring them? You spit it fast but all it takes is a hand to lend.
You do your sacred work, spitting butane in the face of campus fireworks.
