Track Name: Broken Aperture Blues
The parking lot's a flood again
We'll check our checks and then
Ignite our engines

When the treatment starts to fade again
We'll remember who we were
And how it happened

When passersby show sentiment
In the form of endless ends
And cloudy headlights

I'll know that you
will never have to
gaze at the view
through my broken
aperture blue
Track Name: Brooklyn Molly Bloom
the day you left did you hear me wondering out loud
whether they have buildings like this five thousand miles south
maybe i'm a Brooklyn Molly Bloom
and maybe you're a somewhere someone, too

Down there can you see the southern cross hanging in the sky
and would i end up standing with you if we followed our respective astromic guides
maybe i'm a Brooklyn Molly Bloom
and maybe you're a somewhere someone, too

maybe you're the rain watering on the city streets
sending all your signals through the ground onto my feet
and making all the tallest buildings grow
so i can climb their stairs and send my love to you

maybe i'm a Brooklyn Molly Bloom
and maybe you're a somewhere someone, too
Track Name: New Beginnings
light a fire in the forest
call the wolves to come out and play
burning down in swedish torches
going down to the river to pray

and i'll go alone
oh, i'll go alone
i'll close my eyes and let that freezing water flow, oh

place a log inside the stove
let the little seasons live and die
now they're shutting down the roads
pretty parisian girl fills up my eyes

and i'm going to find
day and night, all in my mind
the dichotomy is not unkind

when you come to see me i will blink truths and new beginnings
i'll hand over all my winnings, oh whoa
Track Name: Erics Invisible Arms (Pt. 1)
eric took a knife
cut off his arm at the bone
but no one noticed
only for my eyes and ears where the secrets were told
and sent down to the river
to leave us and pan it for gold

eric's just fine
there never was blood on the tide of his old
old polyester
and he took the space where the arm used to be
and he wrapped it around and around
til there was no more rest of her!

and i'll be gone
and i'll be gone!
i'll charge through that wood door out into the front lawn
and throw this silly world out into the big sun
and we'll all live in eric's invisible arms
Track Name: The Falls (Pts. 2 and 3)
sing something strong
flow thoughtful, waterfall and long
tendentious yawn
repeats forever it goes on and on and on and on
she's left the room please stop the song

daisy you're the girl i never knew
there will be no one before or after you

highlight skies and it was beautiful
i saw it all before june was gone
and i saw you, and i saw you

you fall from high, you have no weight
you hit the ground and float away
oh if you knew, oh if you knew

i saw it all
under the falls
Track Name: Dallas Doesn't Love you
well maybe dallas doesn't love you
that's a small blip on the atlas spin it round and try again
mine is at lightning speeds and never ever slowing down
when did this building eat my house and go to sleep
stir of a mouse and there's nothing left to
see lost in the hallways there's no lights to wake you up

i need to wake you up

well theres a room across the street, through thick concrete
and wire fences in the dark is where you sleep
stands guard, a monolith, won't ever let you out or let me in
why can't i just break through the walls and maybe then
defense would fall and light would resonate within
your favorite sounds would flood your ears again and love would find it's way inside your broken skin

i need to wake you up
Track Name: The Western Night
now i close my eyes where winter hides
and wind sweeps the plains while seasons change
but this spring ain't gonna bring
no this spring ain't gonna bring anything but rain

so now here i stay, so far away
and they should have warned me of the storm
cause these trees are breathin deep
and this breeze is leavin me anything but warm

now i don't expect, cause they've all left
and my heart is gold, and my heart is cold
so i stay the same while seasons change
and this spring ain't gonna bring
no this spring ain't gonna bring anything but rain
Track Name: Funeral
well it was raining
raining all the time
coming down inside
the day you
well i heard my name
in the bagpipes
and blue was the sky
the day you died

and together now
you lie in the ground
the love is all around
i hear it in the smallest
sounds the ghosts have sang around your grave
and i know it seemed to take a life time, but you're saved
finally you're saved

well it's been raining
raining all this time
coming down inside
ever since you
well i saw the love
ya i saw it rise
and it split the sky
the day you died
Track Name: Salem
it is coming in
and it's breaking like the waves that wash down from the city of our deepest sins
we were not alone
inside the carnivals and graveyards that i'd like to some day call my home
fall asleep with me
under the oldest tree in all the golden leaves in this town beside the sea

you are coming in
and you're breaking like the waves that wash down from the city of our deepest sins
we are not alone
inside the carnivals and graveyards that i'd like to some day call my home
fall asleep with me
inside the oldest streets in all the golden leaves that rain down from the trees into our dreams

and fall asleep with me
inside the oldest street in this town beside the sea
Track Name: The End Of Summer
I hope it's always the end of summer
and it's late in the afternoon
and the glow from headlights bouncing off the Blue Ridge
and on to you
And softly lie down in your room

I hope it's always the end of summer
for how I feel of you
I hope you know I wish I knew
of all the things they did to you

I hope it's always the end of summer
and you feel comfortable and whole
and at home inside your skin
because no one's ever going to hurt you again
Track Name: Plastic Gold
nothing's worth fighting for
all alone, broken home
nothing's worse than open eyes
and billboard words, flightless birds
well i'm a loud little radio, or so i'm told
so i'm told

the light breaks all
around my skin, never comes in
waiting for so very long
right or wrong, always gone
there's always something to be told
little radio, growing old
plastic gold
