Track Name: Couch
Give back my heart
I want it back, I want it back
Give me back my life
I want it back, I want it back
Sick of spending all my time, my ass on the couch
My eyes to the ground
Minutes spinning round and round

You cannot stop playing
All kinds of games with my time
You, you

I wake up, I realize
I've wasted half my life
I want things how they used to be
I cannot afford to keep waiting
And who do you think you are,
Wasting all of my precious time?
Who do you think you are?

You cannot stop playing
All kinds of games with my time
You, you

Too many times...

I wake up, I realize
I've wasted half my life
I want things how they used to be
I cannot afford to keep waiting
Track Name: Wade In the Water
Poor sister, poor soul
Why does your head hang like that?
Go back to your mother, go back to your mother
Come sister, come brother

Wade in the water, wade in the water
Come sister, come brother
Wade in the water, wade in the water

Poor brother, poor boy
Why do your feet drag like that?
Go back to your mother, go back to your mother
Come sister, come brother

These cleansing waters came from long ago
From where we will never know
But these waters will purify you, these waters will purify you

Wade in the water, wade in the water
Come sister, come brother
Wade in the water, wade in the water
Wade in the water...
Track Name: Mr. Rodgers
Touch me, touch me, touch me, touch me

So
I close my eyes and
Imagine my hand on your thigh
And before I put my car into drive
I will ask myself if I should have put my mouth on yours
So you would know my name

Never know, I will never know
Never know, I will never know
Never know, I will never know
Never know, I will...

What it's like to grow old
To hold my child in my arms

But
You will all know my name
You will all know my name

Pop my cherry, pop my cherry, pop my cherry, pop my cherry

You will all know my name
You will all know my name

Well, this is it.
Tomorrow is the day of retribution.
Ever since I hit puberty I've been forced to endure a lifetime of loneliness,
Rejection, and unfulfilled desires.
I'm 22 years old and i'm still a virgin
I'm 22 years old and i'm still a virgin
And i don't know what you don't see in me.
Track Name: Tiny Hammer
Pluck my feathers one by one
Sow them in the starry sky
And tell your children when you tuck them in at night

Fill my senses one by one
Lose me in the dizzying spin
Hold me down, throw me around
Make me explode like a supernova
Supernova
Aah...aah...aah...

Stand by my side, stay by me
I need the rush, the ride
Or else I will surely die
Or else I will surely die

Stand by my side, stay by me
I need the rush, the ride
Or else I will surely die
Or else I will surely die

I'm your puppet, pull my strings
Make my eyes of dragons' wings
Make my legs of sticks and stones
Hold me so you're not alone

Remember me when i am gone
When i flicker and go out like so many stars
A dwarf, a white dwarf, a supernova
Remember me, remember me, remember me
Aah..aah...aah...

Stand by my side, stay by me
I need the rush, the ride
Or else I will surely die
Or else I will surely die

Stand by my side, stay by me
I need the rush, the ride
Or else I will surely die
Or else I will surely die
Track Name: Anxiety Palace
Aah...

Like a simile I couldn't place
The words I simply cannot use
To communicate's an act of force
Between my lips my tongue and teeth

Aah...

Runaway thought had to come out
Complete unfounded worrying
I've got a web of faces to reach out to
But they remind me where I haven't been

I'd like to keep it simple
Stay uninformed for awhile
To communicate's an act of force
Between my brain, my nerves, my smile

Aah...

If the question you would like to ask
Contains the words 'what do you want?'
I will ask you kindly to refrain
And ask the city why it keeps growing

I'd like to keep it simple
Stay uninformed for awhile
But my day job is a children's hospital
Painted bright and feigning calm

Stop just turn it off
Stop just turn it off
Stop just turn it off
Stop just turn it off

Aah...
Track Name: On Purpose
How to kill a part of me
The one that fancies, the one that needs
How to kill a part of me
Paranoia, fantasy and in between

Aah...

Stomach full but mind is growling
Heart is full but falling asleep
And my writing's far too serpentine
What no one gets will never keep

Aah...

How to kill a part of me
That's mired in selfish, circular woe
Rip the seams and pull it slack
Treat it like a band-aid and never look back

Aah..
Focus on the simple, uh-huh
Focus on the same, uh-huh
Focus on the beauty, keep yourself moving, keep yourself
Whole, whole, whole
Whole, whole, whole
Aah...

Kill whatever makes you suffer
And struggle, and screw up
And banter and weep
Kiss it softly, kiss it sweetly
Tuck it in bed and put it to sleep

Aah...
Focus on the simple, uh-huh
Focus on the same, uh-huh
Focus on the beauty, keep yourself moving, keep yourself
Whole, whole, whole
Whole, whole, whole
Aah...
Aah...
Track Name: Aurora
Wishing on a dying star
Wish my lover wasn't far
Morning is coming
Fast on wings of, rays of light

My world was falling
I closed but I could not open my eyes
My world was falling
I closed but could not open my eyes

Someone's lurking in the woods
And she surely means me harm
But i will escape this prison
Fast on wings of, rays of light

My world was falling
I closed but could not open my eyes
My world was falling
I closed but could not open my eyes

She only wanted to be a mother
To put on your red hood
Protect you from the big bad wolf

My world was falling
I closed but I could not open my eyes
My world was falling
I closed and when I opened my eyes
I was free
Free
Track Name: Younger
Time's not running any faster, but you're not getting any younger
Time's not running any faster, but you're not getting any younger

Staring down the end of the tunnel's not gonna make that
Train come any faster, train come any faster
But I'll just stare at my navel, I'll just bite my cheek

Aah...

Train come any faster
Train come any faster
Train come any faster
Train come any faster

Time's not running any faster, but you're not getting any younger
Time's not running any faster, but you're not getting any younger

Aah...

I'll just bite my cheek
I'll just bite my tongue
I'll just bite my cheek
I'll just bite my tongue

Aaah..
Track Name: Darlin
Oh darlin', darlin' darlin'
Oh darlin', darlin' darlin'

You are...
You are...

Gorgeous, gorgeous!
Gorgeous life to live
And you are
The world to me

Where would I be without you? Where would I be?
Oh..
Darlin', darlin'

Where would I be without you? Where would I be?
Oh..
Where would I be without you? Where would I be?
Oh..

Darlin', darlin', darlin', oh..
Darlin', darlin', darlin', oh..
Track Name: Epic Love Song No. 107
Don't let me go
I'm not too brave
I am still to scared to lose myself

In the folds of your shirt
And the worlds in your mind
Don't let me go
Or I'll do it first
Finish line, first to die
Of turning up, turning off the worst

I know I may seem out of my mind,
But I swear I am sane
Or I am sane sometimes
When it counts...

Don't let me go
I'm stuck in your stare
It goes on...

You are rare
You are rare
You are rare
You are rare

aah...
