Track Name: Den Mothers
If it falls from the sky
watch my energy transform
hands and tongue are all tied
when that fear takes hold
your symmetry
my harmony
in proportion to the ashes
scattered on the ground
turn around to me

"Just know you can't replace my den mother.
Leave without a trace."

So, my sister screams
like a banshee in dreams
like a warrior
with her face painted red,
"Take this away from me!" she said
Here are ghosts and hollow men
ashes spread and sacrament

"Just know you can't replace my den mother.
Leave without a trace like my den mother."

-I'm not the spider, I'm the bite,
I'm not the butcher, I'm the knife,
I am a heart filled with fire, and childish desires...

What won't let me go home?
What won't let me go?
Track Name: She's Around
She's around
whenever I fall down on my head.
Got it figured out: trust in flows, make them landings stick.
I got this crazy beehive buzzing behind my eyes.
She helps me turn chutes and ladders into slip and slides.
I know.
She is around.
Hopping off that train, she's mouthing,
"No, don't let it all go."

I can't let it.
Ultra-magnet, it flows.
Be in the backseat with me.
I've got things to show.
Or do we let it all go?
Am I piggy if I piggyback?

My sweet linoleum, she shakes, she moves.
In a haze, she'll slide her way right through to you.
She is around; for me to be her personal mascot now.
So poetically endowed.

I can't let it.
Ultra-magnet, it flows.
Be in the backseat with me.
I've got things to show.
Or do we let it all go?
Am I piggy if I piggyback?
Track Name: How My Heart Was Lost
How my heart was lost
in the picture of your face
slipped on ice too many times
no matter what the cost
I'm gonna get it straight
if it takes me all night or all of my life

I know breaking out is impossible
I know breaking in's insane
I know

Lost was heart, my how
face your of picture the in
times many too, ice on slipped
cost the matter what, no
straight it get gonna I'm
life my of all or night all me takes it if

I know breaking out is impossible
I know breaking in's insane
I know

Two, too many times we walk on by
Two, too many times we walk on by
Track Name: Indigo
Do you believe in all of the things that you can't see or all of the fears you feel down the rabbit hole?
We can sever our hearts in equal parts and litter them from corner to corner to call it our home; our very own.

Soaking a lifetime in indigo.
Colors, they all swirl around.

We can solder the joints, re-core, replace.
We can straighten the bows.
We can comb the fins.
What would you have me do?
I'd do the same for you.
Domesticate the beast within.
Pay no mind to that opening.
It's not human proof.
It's the deepest blue.

Soaking a lifetime in indigo.
Colors, they all swirl round.

"I've convinced myself I've got this under lock and key. I got this.
In you come fluttering your wings. I got this.
I got this, yeah."

Don't wait around for me to go mad.
Don't wait around for me.

Soaking a lifetime in indigo.
Colors, they all swirl round.

We've got the psycholo-gist
for all of our psychia-tricks.
We've got the psychologist, now.
Track Name: Fall Fever (17th Freak out)
I'm lost in you for like the 17th time
and I'm
not sure that these doors are on their hinges right.
So, tell me what does it all mean?
Pass me the salt, please.
Are you trolling with a sleaze?
Say something!
Be anything!
Be my president; my pretty little puppet.
Stringless guitar star, your silence is maddening.
Your silence is maddening.
Say
something, please,
to me.

"I thought that you might like to know I've dedicated all my soul to you"
Somebody loves you.
(This is only the 17th freak out)
I do.
Somebody loves you and you must love somebody.

You take the good
You take the bad
You take them both
and there you have...
Track Name: The Greatful 4
It's a lie
We're alive
The Grateful 4
Track Name: Montrose Search & Rescue Team (we form)
"Hi love, I miss you more. I can't wait to kiss you!" was the note she left.
Lying around 'til four, swimming in it, savoring every breath.
I could mistake this for hell or is it heaven sent?
It's you.
I can't say it any other way.
You.
We form.
After two years of membership under a smoggy moon
in the Montrose Search & Rescue Team,
we'll double the benefits.
We'll make it forever.
Whatever that may mean.
I could mistake this for Hell or maybe I've found my scene.
You.
I can't say it any other way.
You.
We form.

Standing on the line with a hundred saints
You am I
Put me on the side
pet me, love me, coax me sane
I'm so far gone

You.
I can't say it any other way.
You.
We form.
Track Name: Boys in the Belltower
"Get in line or get real sick.",
she said,
"Go ahead and take a stab at it."
There's nothing wrong
you gotta learn to glide just like linoleum.
Well, I fucked up
and I fucked down
I fucked over everyone in this town
and with this woeth me weight
I think I'll turn in and take a dirt nap

Once your voice had gotten real strong
I felt like I could almost scream again
But the boys in the belltower sing this song
they're like soldiers invading the dream sequence
again
and again
and again...

Boys in the belltower
Boys in the belltower
Our boy's in the belltower
Track Name: You Want to Be Alone (that's why you bring me with you)
I’m wondering why we don’t talk with animals
It’s mind numbing, keeps us all acting like animals
but you don’t wanna talk talk talk bout it
just wanna talk talk talk around it
come on now
Pissing out your self-righteous indignation
puts us on the shelf in-between rabid and relation
don’t see the family all around you
holding hands with foxes, let them guide you
across the bridge, sound
We are here.
We are now
but you want to be alone
that’s why you bring me with you

Sometimes I wish I could delete the past four years with out you
but then I’d only repeat the same mistakes as you do
You’re my sister, you’re my heart
no burden
When you left, you left the house burning
I promise you
We are here.
We are now.
but you want to be alone
that’s why you bring me with you

Why do you bring me with you?
Why do you bring me with you?

I see it all behind your face
you’re dripping sound around me
It’s you no matter time or place
so hold on, hold on, hold
I see it all behind your face
you’re dripping sound around me
It’s you no matter time or place
so hold on, hold on, hold on
but you can’t
and you won’t
and it makes me sad
I feel sad
I feel sad
Track Name: The Ends
You wear a mask
you see more souls
I'm feeling like I gotta slow
my roll
before it's curtains for me
Won't see you on the flip-side
forever in this life I'll hide
If you need to find me...

"No need to talk about the ends"

A death-defying love
is something I know we both want, so
come, come see about me
We'll always have our Bowie
We'll always have our love
And we'll always have love of Bowie...

"No need to talk about the ends"
"No need to talk about the ends"
"No need to talk about the ends"
"No need to talk about the ends"

-Will we ever find we?

Do you wait for people to do something right
or
do you wait for people to do wrong?
