Track Name: waves
say you want me here right now
say i'll need a week or more

you're really on a god damn tear
you know i've been in louder storms

i think i might hibernate
i wanna be more like the bear
pick the leaves out from my coat
lay against the frosty stone
rearrange my furniture
place all the red in your corner

you feel you're falling from the sky
but that's the way that eagles hunt
you've given me yourself in twine

i see you as something more
you're like a river in my hands
so much more than i can hold

think it's just the way of things
carve yourself a cave from stone
or you could build a village

you wanna keep me close to you
you're asking me to build a tree
Track Name: string lights
fucked up
all this wind makes my limbs shake
like a seaward tower
sink my roots in the earthquake

but if you lead me
i promise i will not fall
and if you leave me
i promise i will not cry for you

i am the smallest point
tethering you to happiness
rush of seaswept sand
brushing over your surface

but if you lead me
i promise i will not fall
and if you leave me
i promise i will not cry for you

dust to dust
a willow spring from me
loss to lost
a living thing of me
worse to worse
the spring's yellow gleam see me off

but if you lead me
i promise i will not fall
and if you leave me
i promise i will not cry for you
Track Name: knife
throw some clothes on, look at me closely
as the sunlines slice your eye

i wake up
throw pajamas on and
breathe in the silver sky

and i rearrange
and i disengage
and i turn the page
and i burn the sage
and i find the light
and i toss the match
and i help you grow

i'll lift the sails
and i'll spread my wings
and i'll fill the pails
and i'll count the rings
and i'll dig with nails
and i'll find you here
and i'll bring you home

pain focus
pain focus
don't lose my love
feign hopeless
feign hopeless
the door slams shut

cars outside
carry me into the day
like a resined bow

your car speakers
pop and fizzle like a
string tuned so tight it explodes

and i'll fight the lies
and i'll bind the ties
and i'll kill the lights
and i'll make it right
and i'll dry your eyes
and i'll win the fight
and i'll do these chores

i'll make it work
and i'll do the dirt
and i'll heal the hurt
and i'll feel your words
and they'll kill me dead
and i'll rise back up
and i'll come right back for more

pain focus
pain focus
don't lose my love
feign hopeless
feign hopeless
the door slams shut

cain, joseph
cain, joseph
Track Name: weed + nail polish
i guess it's time for the ocean to take you back
but i can visit sometime
if you and i could wring some hope out of heart attack
this is what it sounds like

so rev your engine and load your cart
show me what you plan on making for lunch
maybe i can quell my stressful mind
and we can have a halfway decent time

so smoke your weed and take your edibles
tell me, how're the ones that i bought you?
and we can do for naps what truffaut did for movies
and make up some new things to sleep through

make it sweet, make it home, make it back
just don't let it get too loud
i'll bring you home put you to bed turn out the lights
shut the door without a sound

so come right home when you've done what you gotta do
show us one or two of your bruises
i'll steer the conversation like a sailboat on a choppy, frozen sea
Track Name: the e line
got no patience for thursday
if we park along the dockside
i will kick a little sand at your heels

a weary convalescence
now, tear apart the winger whispers
stab the heart at which you siphon your meal

now, feel that
as it brushes through with fingers
feel this,
as the breath of winter lingers
and know i'll

love you
in spite of you
i'll care for you
and i'll have
love for you
through gritted teeth
i'll be good for you
like i know i can

lift me up, flip me over
because your weary little hands
can carry ant-like portions back to your bed

and the fear of god is a flathead that can
pry my wooden shutters
just as well as it can dismantle your head

so just stay close
as we put it back together
i can show you
to turn emptiness to pleasure

i'll love you
in spite of you
i'll care for you
and i'll have
love for you
through gritted teeth
i'll be good for you
like i know i can

i'll love you
in spite of you
i'll care for you
and i'll have
love for you
through gritted teeth
i'll be good for you
like i know i can
Track Name: elaine
i remember when i met you as i
stumbled through the door
made my first impressions
melted on the kitchen floor

looked upon the first thing
i had both wanted and got
a feeling so uneasy i stood
frozen on the spot

i can be your nextdoor neighbor
i'm your neighborhood stray cat
i can spill my guts for you to
shovel in the trash

i know you've got big plans involving
wanting me to stay
but jerry,
i wanna be your elaine

the weary hand, the purposeful gaze,
the kiss that makes you sad
meet me at the solstice
don't forget to bring a bag

seal it in a letter,
dig a capsule in the snow
leave it on a postcard
whatever you want them to know

oh, it could be beautiful
we could say no to the pain
oh, jerry
i wanna be your elaine

oh, jerry
oh, oh, jerry
oh, jerry
i wanna be your elaine
Track Name: beanbag
wreathe yourself in great
before you have to face
leave a plate for me
you can rest while i clean

a favorite number put on my jacket
a pair of names carved in a tree
the secrets whispered into my pillow
a journal entry they'll never see

this life is an embarrassing phase, i just can't wait to be free

i didn't hear what you said
but i'll still nod my head
you've got that look on your face
your memory's jogging in place

your favorite words that you never told me
no matter how much you wanted to
the love put into a roman statue
a tree falling where no one knew

this life is an embarrassing phase, i just can't wait to be free

the last i saw of that photograph of you
was in the drawer under measuring tape and glue
this life is good 'cause it doesn't have any rules

i'll turn my head and be gone
shut a door with no lock
keep a thought in your head
don't just make it through you can win

this life is an embarrassing phase, i'll pick the seconds i keep
Track Name: christmas eve
went ahead and brought the water home
from the well down the street
got some dirt on my feet

but if you make a mess in here again
i won't hesitate to let you know
you won't have enough to cook your bowl
gotta let it down the kitchen drain

if i catch hell from the town
bring my seeds in a handful
drop them all, what's it all for
such a crying shame
that they could grow from my pain

never got ahold of my sea legs
so i stumble in the eathquake
and i crumble in the hurting

once you pull youself out from the wreck
they won't let you know they got hurt too
they won't be around to lecture you
they will black the stars above your head
they will turn you out to fare the rain

if they wanna tie me to the post
tell em i don't love christ no more
tell em i'm rotted down into my core
i feel the wind whip all around me
i feel my blood stream like a fountain

am i in hell or in heaven?
what type of shit am i shoveling?
what is the war in my soul for?
will you bring me a steed or an old horse?
Track Name: blue shift
there's nothing left to say
if my experience counts for anything
i've got a weekend to waste, and i've got nothing to gain

let's just zone out on the couch
get lost in symbols and fractals that come from the world
we've got good front row seats, and the show's just getting good

all around the world
you feel the sound and shape of time
i'll find a comfy little place
for you and i

all throughout my life
you cast a light that's shifting blue
i know i'll fight against the stream
it's me and you

we've got a city to see
we've got some cars to just barely avoid colliding
a couple drinks on my tab and you can go grab some more

i've got all future to worry about my future
i've got some cuts and some time with you's my suture
i head the phở place on broadway is pretty alright

all around the world
you feel the sound and shape of time
i'll find a comfy little place
for you and i

all throughout my life
you cast a light that's shifting blue
i know i'll fight against the stream
it's me and you
