sleepless in the bedroom

boiling in my belly and it starts to rise
fingers made of jelly and feeble cries
hiding is easy and runners die

not if treasons legal and i took to the skies

but oh

cannonball
through the wall
Track Name: IF I WAS
grab a pen draw the map nail the pins send your lines
trace the outlines of nations in my mind
truth came in waves and it left no trace
like spiders swim to the shore
it turned the kid inside me into stone
But I guess thats what it means to be grown

im no merciless bastard messiah of broken homes
im no merciless bastard messiah of broken homes

i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
but i cant go far

but if i was a bricklayer id pave the way

i shout her name slows the war into frames
that flash before my eyes
i tried to draw a point but instead I drew a line
it pulled me back all the way in time
save our souls from the stain parables of the insane
that crush this glass into sand

i dont have a ride but i sure as hell have a home
i dont have a ride but i sure as hell have a home
but my head is still weighted down

i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
but i cant go far
im too afraid youll fade away

but if i was a gardener id tend to your stay
and if i had a vestment Id know what to say
and if i was a daytripper I would see you again and again
and if i was a aviator the sky would touch your hands

i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
i want to take my bullets and run
Track Name: BROKEN BOY
why do you gather those coins in the street my girl if theyre all comin back to me
ya know you dont look down not once anymore yeah the weathers too high and free
you walked yesterday form the world in its way yeah you told me that it wasnt too true
i asked you if you like to look up sometimes and you said yes no and walked away

hey hey hey
part of me wants to

drive a big a red shark into the center of the city lights
and part of me wants to get mentally disfigured and never go back
and part of me wants to never see anyone again
but oh

when i was broken boy i asked myself why i was alone
but now im aloud humble and proud but broken in the bones
so wobble and weeble to the beat of your feet so i can stay up and itll be fine oh
but the splints are gettin thicker and a mans gotta mister and im not a day over nine
well you walk down the street in your slippery feet and ill ask you where you are goin
you say im lookin up i do it all the time and then you laugh and walked away

hey hey hey
part of me wants

go someplace far and forget what i knew
part of me wants to wrap myself in layers of cotton
part of me wants to never see anyone again
but oh
come see with me
come see with me
come see with me
come see with me

part of me wants to
drive a big a red shark into the center of the city lights
and part of me wants to get mentally disfigured and never go back
and part of me wants to never see anyone again
oh
but oh
ooh
Track Name: HIS THIGH
she walks in wave
hes a couple feet behind
she has seen everything
his feet are too small

shes not as pregnant as him

she doesn't want a house
she would live in a tree
he would live in a house even if she were a tree

ya know he
likes the deep rich sound of his hand hitting his thigh
he likes the deep rich sound of his hand hitting his thigh
shes read up on sonic movements and isnt impressed
shes read up on sonic movements and isnt impressed

she walks
she walks in a wave
she walks in a wave
she walks in a wave
she walks in a wave

shes not as pregnant as him
shes not as pregnant as him
shes not as pregnant as him
shes not as pregnant as him
shes not as pregnant as him
shes not as pregnant as him
Track Name: FLY LIKE SEAGULLS
dirty weeds and grassy feet
flicker softly with the breeze
the clouds they beckon
they beckon for a pair of open arms

every day brings things to say
and childish thoughts wont fade away
for the season there is no reason
to sing and smile and breath it in

fly like seagulls
fly like seagulls
sway like maize

white flashes that replace the night
with a boiling battle blinding sight
while us two sewed anew
sit and watch the world crumble

then well make a picture frame
made from the sea shells
collected from the beaches in my mind
and the tide will roll and put in place
an epigraph seared into the sand

fly like seagulls
fly like seagulls
sway like maize

fly like seagulls
sway like maize
flossing gently through the days
come december
lets remember
the summer tide that brought us in
Track Name: EXCITED 2
now that i am

am i am i done
am i am i done

i know you know i know

excited

excited
Track Name: OOH BABY
although ive come here
to wash the day from my skin
selfishness oozes
from me like black flies
it splits like splinters
sinks into others like
black flies and neckties
meaning something
but i dont know what it is

but i could drink an ocean and never filled

is it too early
i think its way too soon
you dont know how long
its going to be for me
deeper things under
are often shallow
a glassy lake or
body of water
cause i don't know whats inside

but i could drink an ocean and never filled

i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know whats inside of you
i got to know whats inside of you
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know

ooh baby
wash your tongue babe
ooh baby
wash your tongue babe
ooh baby
wash your tongue my baby
ooh baby
wash your tongue babe

i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know
i need to know whats inside of you
i got to know whats inside of you
i need to know whats inside of you
Track Name: WHITE LINES
white lies they fill your head
white lines drawn on your bed
white lines they take control
white lies they are my hole
white lies they fill your head
white lies they wish you dead
white lies are in your head

what is this face
what is this feeling
i dont know why but the skin on my heart is peeling

white lies they fill your head
white lies they wish you dead
white lies they are my hole
white lies they take control
white lies they fill your head
white lies wish you were dead
white lines they fill your head
Track Name: OSMOSIS ROW
ill take you down a corridor without walls and
wash those unhallowed shadows from your eyes
and the
neon lights will compose a heart filled with fear
even though
theyre bright enough for me

and we can hide
in our hearts
and we can run
to your house
and we can grope
for a lock and key
and well sleep on osmosis row

ill slip down a needle that leads to your heart
and your blood will ask me what im good for
and ill say my hands can make life out of clay
and your bones will send me
on my way

and we can hide
in our hearts
and we can run
to your house
and we can grope
for a lock and key
and well sleep on osmosis row

ill walk you down a road in the dark
with lightbulbs flashing fiercly in the sky
and ill lay you down in a city on a hill
and well watch
the planets
well watch them burn

and we can hide
in our hearts
and we can run
to your house
and we can grope
for a lock and key
and well sleep on osmosis row
Track Name: DANDELIONS
dandelions hit my toes eyes are narrow
water towers feel like bones with no marrow
the trees outside they whisper softly whisper softly to our ears
im sixteen feet from where I should be

each step i take feels farther from the place where i belong
each breath i breath it seems to me takes more than it gives
when reality feels like a dream except when im with you
and the ones i know will come and go but my fears will stay the same

part your ways in such a way that ill feel nothing
cause i finally know what its like to be compounded
and today the earth swells and shrinks it wont disturb you
and I still dont think that

each step i take feels farther from the place where i belong
each breath i breath it seems to me takes more than it gives
when reality feels like a dream except when im with you
and the ones i know will come and go but my fears will stay the same

and when you feel you can't deny what you have inside I will let you be
certainly intertwined with a person who feels like theyre exactly where they belong
