Track Name: Shameful
he's so shameful
he wears it like a mask
empathetic
i'll let it be my handicap

i'm so tired of surprises
i've never felt so old
and if you're moving towards a crisis
remember what you wrote
so long ago

who cares if we wait a while?
who cares if it's not in style?
who cares, we don't, we don't, no

i'm so blinded
i trusted every word he said
i keep acting
like this is a new event

i'm so tired of surprises
i've never felt so old
and if you're moving towards a crisis
remember what you wrote
so long ago

who cares if we wait a while?
who cares if it's not in style?
who cares, we don't, we don't, no

all that they live for is dust
like the rest of us
Track Name: Oh, Please
i wish that i could see things the way you see them
if only so that we could carry on
i know that my mistakes are made far too often
but what makes you think that you've done nothing wrong?

i thought that only my worst enemies
had that sort of amputated memory
every time you start to make believe
i feel like screaming in a public library

i thought it through and i came to one conclusion
i've carried your opinion for too much time
still, now and then i get such a nagging feeling
i want to be thought of as someone nice, but

it seems that only my worst enemies
get the same reputation i receive
and every time a sleazy look comes over
i wish that i could give myself some kind of closure
Track Name: Bottles
when you're around i just can't open up my mouth
i think my conscience keeps the words from slipping out
and we've been married now for far too long to count

i still hear you walking round the house
finding bottles you left strewn about

when you left me there were bills still in the mail
calls to answer and a staleness to the air
but morning moments convinced me you were there

i still hear you walking round the house
finding bottles you left strewn about

if you have to go away
maybe it can wait 'til some other day

i still hear you walking round the house
finding bottles you left strewn about
Track Name: Lilypad
hey, hey, hey

simple things don’t happen quick—ly
daydreams fade and daytime slips
i once read the news like you
novels, clocks, and dreams too

talking through a megaphone
‘cross a plain to arizon—a
i’m so glad i’m all alone
tracing words in dirt

(are you a story?)
like a single cell
(why it’s staged this way)
split like hell, you wonder why it’s staged this way

falling back down from the sky
counting clouds and reading signs
simple things take so much time
float back up to me again

(are you a story?)
like a single cell
(why it’s staged this way)
split like hell, you wonder why it’s staged this way

lilypad, it's sink or swim
when little fish nip at your stem
blue around, but green within
float back up to me again

i
want to be
everybody
i know
Track Name: Heavy Head
window's breath
over your neck
covers raised
in a blurry maze of black

dreams aloud
"i wonder what they mean"
flying, falling down,
and loose teeth

oh the silly sounds you make (oh you can't even help it)
when your coffee's running late (oh you can't even help it)
how heavy is your head when you (oh you can't even help it)
first wake up and make the bed? (oh you can't even help it)

breathing deep
tumbling into sleep
and holding close
your lover as you weep

oh the silly sounds you make (oh you can't even help it)
when your coffee's running late (oh you can't even help it)
how heavy is your head when you (oh you can't even help it)
first wake up and make the bed? (oh you can't even help it)
Track Name: Anywhere
i'm me as best i can
the days i feel like dancing
seem so far ahead of me
you talk so straight and tall
it makes me feel so small
to close my eyes and hear you speak
over me

darling, we could get along
if you learn your rights from your wrongs
it's alright
these things happen from time to time
maybe if you had, baby, twice the mental capacity
we'll get there if we ever get anywhere

you seem so insecure
but i think less is more than
what your friends all think of you
me, i won't crash your dreams or
be behind the scenes of
some sad trick they put you
through
poor you

darling we could get along
if you learn your rights from your wrongs
it's alright
these things happen from time to time
maybe if you had a clue, no one would think poorly of you
we'll get there if we ever get anywhere
Track Name: Garden Path
i know you know it isn't so
i couldn't leave you, but
you bet on tricking me again
next time i won't believe you

the first time i caught your eye, i felt
like i was leaning
but by now i've come to realize
that looks can be deceiving

i've been around to see it too many times
i should've stopped to read between your lines
i guess i'm just not your type

i planted trees you like to see
and kept them healthy
but when you grew through someone new,
the blossoms bloomed so lonely

i've been around to see it too many times
i should've stopped to read between your lines
i guess i'm just not your type
i guess i'm just not your type
Track Name: Waiting
got back from the sky now
swept out by the clouds
felt like the first snowflake
to hit the ground
waiting, waiting

when i left my city
got so far from home
i found myself driving
down all the same roads
i keep looking for something more

oh, what a decision
and what a mistake
relying on lostness
to give me my way
hoping, hoping

the first one to tire
the first one to fall
asleep on the highway
with my head on the door
passing lonely cars heading home
Track Name: Puddles
lily dear, you've been sleeping
since the second the sun stepped up to see
over hills so enormous
that you couldn't bear to lift your feet

just a minor procedure
it could cost you the thread that keeps the ends
but when life gets too hard for you
you seem fit to test your luck again

hear me out and settle down
sweetheart tell me what's been on your mind
worries that you meant to leave behind

they say boy you'll get what you expect if you just want it hard enough
and if the phrase is days away you'll wait a lifetime if you want
you should be scared, you should be wary
of the things you choose to say
if you stay away
