Shameful 02:48
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

Oh, Please 02:42
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

Bottles 02:57
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

Lilypad 03:14
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

Heavy Head 03:20
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)

Anywhere 03:23
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

Garden Path 02:34
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

Waiting 02:46
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

Puddles 02:25
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
