Track Name: Born In A Hospital
You were spinning, spinning when you lost your hold, the floor so very very far from home. You're up and you're out before the break of dawn to watch the wind spin around on your dusty plot. The rain came and it washed away everything, a thumb race might get you into character in time. The man in the window says to name your price because his rhymed advice it only mocks your life. You were born in a hospital but you don't know the name of the doctor. All you know is you don't know how. Take another breath and swallow it down, letting it out could only hurt you now. Take another breath and swallow it down.
Track Name: Oldest Offer
You pull up from the bath but you just fall back and then you curl up your body for the fast collapse. The sun slides down and all the water birds flap until they land. The kids on the beach bury themselves deep under the sand. The trees still weep themselves to sleep like they always have. You see yourself reflected in the water and it tells you to play for the oldest offer. Your brother has a son and your friend just had a daughter. It's nice to think maybe this boat won't sink into the lake. There's time to waste and plenty of places with paths to pass. So take off your socks and walk the bottom, with the aches and pains of the back-breaking pace you're on- skipping rocks and drinking out of bottles. The window shrinks at the time spills ink over the page. When your story's told was your character both bold and brave? It's nice to think maybe this boat won't sink into the lake. Is it growing old or costume gold you use to medicate?
Track Name: Point Arena
Its time to roll over. Break the branches in your way. You rest on a shoulder that took the pillow's place. And it’s another overcast day where the owls are ignoring their prey. I'll head out in the morning before you are awake. Down through the redwoods to listen to the break. The fog puts my guard on all sides while the salt air is stinging my eyes. To the clouds above me: Tell me what you know. Tell me that I don't have to go. Tell me that you love me. Tell me that you know. Tell me that we all have to go.
And it's another overcast day where the owls are ignoring their prey. Remember that you are alive when the salt air is stinging your eyes.
Track Name: Calling Out
We're doing laps around a dim light. I'm the moth and you're the porch light. And yes of course I am aware of the directions of a hard life. And I will find my history- it will explain things in my surroundings. If you can hear me calling out, I'm calling into (_____), if you can hear me. We're doing laps around a dim light, I'm the moth and you're the porch light. We're tightrope walkers afraid of such heights, and yes of course I…
Track Name: Don't Kid Us
The summer kept your neck arched, your eyes up in the sky. Directions were all just currents that you'd effortlessly ride. The winter comes and your thoughts explode. It's dark when you leave and when you come home. So give me a happy ending, keep me from pulling back. You lose me and then you find me, just to nurse me back to health. Don't kid us- you don't get us. Don't kid us- it's not right.
Track Name: Screw The Bank
Breathe into us all, the world you are seeing. Breathe into us all the way you are feeling. Bad reaction blast you say. Evolution-lapse-decay. Stop your staring, save the day. Pass on future, spend the day making ripples on the lake. Forget what your papers say, lose this place and screw the bank. Tear apart the routine day, leave a death trail in your wake. Be a farmer not a fake. Breather into us all, the world your are seeing. Breathe into us all the way you are feeling. I love someone in the late of the evening. I love someone while she is sleeping. I love someone who has to be leaving. Breathe into us all, the world you are seeing. Breathe into us all the way you are feeling.
