Track Name: too much everything
at the bottom is where i found the clarity
to watch the ghosts of all my buried insincerities prove me wrong
as i insisted otherwise

you were breaking bottles in harmony
in the service of your company of enemies chained to the walls
and executed faithfully

too much fun too much money too much nothin too much everything
not enough blood not enough guts not enough anything

tell me that my future's ahead of me
that i'm the inevitable consequence of everything from then until now
and disappointing anywaaay

too much fun too much money too much nothin too much everything
not enough blood not enough guts not enough anything

too much fun too much come too much nothin too much everything
not enough love not enough lungs not enough anything
Track Name: momentary boy
i am just a momentary boy
winsome, wintry and true
carved out from a pomegranate stone
and paid directly to you
neither old nor young nor polished in taste

wait for me
among the fenceposts of sorrowful shepherds who count all your sheep
i'll soon be waking up so don't you weep

patience, patience penitent jerome
pray for ours to keep
father, son and holy little ghost
all know just where you sleep
little horn, deny your brothers in waste

wait for me
beneath the lamp-post'd shadowy haunts for which you cry in your sleep
let all the others watch in disbelief

and so i'm shaking this last call's ghost from my bed
cause the morning is breaking a bottle over my head
Track Name: illiterate
untrue love, right before my eyes, delivered in disguise
unwaxed, unwaned, un-used up, a blasphemy of light
surrendered to the night the sound, the breath of verse
should but i fall in love illiterate or waste those words thrown into
a rhapsody in white to justify the time i hooooooooold my breath

cause i think that falling in love should be indescribable
and so what's the point of even singing songs about falling in love
when it's impossible
to catch that fleeting, flying thing you're singing of
and such a song would be irresponsible
so why can't we just fall in love right now

o cruel drug, right between the eyes, beleaguered by the smile
that broke my brain into a providence of mind to disconnect the tie
that once bound my breast to hers, before the fall
when it was for the best to watch the sky fall into a
thousand fiery knives that cut me every time i cloooooooose my eyes

cause i think that falling in love should be irresponsible
and so what's the point of even singing songs about falling in love when it's indescribable
to catch that fleeting flying thing you're singing of
and such a song would be impossible
so why can't we just fall in love right now
Track Name: asymmetry
isn't it something to not understand
holding my future to sift through your hands
it's long been decided that nothing can change
the trial is over but the jury remain
haunting my home, calling the phone
unrelenting, unpitying and cruel in all that i do

i found the need to want to know again
but i lost the strength to get up and go again
and i need to find the flame to light again
the light to see me through the night again

it's cold and lonesome on the wrong side of asymmetry
outweighted whatever you do
bored and folded in a swan dive to infinity
long and forever and true
there was a time when i was a child
and the serpent, mistaking me for its tail
swallowed me whole

i found the need to want to know again
but i lost the strength to get up and go again
and i need to find the flame to light again
the light to see me through the night again

i don't know what i've done to earn it
and i don't know how i could deserve it
but however i can hold onto it
i will forever live to do it
Track Name: amphibious skin
in the year of nineteen seventeen
we were born in war of land and sea
hallelujah our ship has come
ave beulah thy will be done
we're overgrown and waterlogged

are we never destined to be free
of duplicitous biology
we could lose our little heads again
and shed off all our amphibious skin
to never kiss the sea again
and lay down arms to drink the rain
Track Name: for norah
norah my girl, asleep in your bed
a halo of sunrise gently laid upon your head
norah my girl, it is true i very do love you

open your eyes, it's time to awake
the world will be bigger than it was just yesterday
norah my girl, it is true i wanna do right by you

you and me, we're made of stardust, barreling through open cosmos
such an empty place to be alone
satellites in constant orbit, circling the skies to forget
gravity's control and spin back home

norah my girl, asleep in your bed
a pillow of moonlight gently laid beneath your head
norah my girl, it is true i do it all for you
norah my girl, it is true i very do so much love you
Track Name: there is a guy behind my eyes
there is a guy behind my eyes,
who watches me lie, who watches me cry
and there ain't a soul alive
that will ever see the guy behind my eyes

pouring out or packing it up
or splitting the difference and hoping for a miracle

i, i am the guy behind my eyes,
who watches me live, who will watch me die
and someone resides behind your eyes
that no one can see, and neither can i
Track Name: vera historia
fly by night and dead by dawn
we'll run until the money is gone
vindicated, liberated and ever strong vera historia

and if the day should suddenly come
we find ourselves in the mausoleum
whether then we'll live again or nevermore vera historia
nevermore vera historia

stay one more night awake with me, she said,
cause i'm alone and tired of this party
i need a man but i guess you'll have to do
cause in love, as in hand grenades and horseshoes,
sometimes close enough's enough to get you through

and when the light is finally gone
and emptied from the heart of the sun
an endless spring of night will flow forever yours vera historia
forever yours, vera historia

stay one more night, awake with me, she said,
cause i'm alone and tired of this party
i need a man but i guess you'll have to do
cause in love, as in horse-grenades and hand-shoes,
sometimes close enough's enough to never do
