Track Name: Explorer Of
I'm an explorer of nothing
No stranger to lying
And there's politics in my pocket
Searching for that warmer climate

Flirting with change and stains
All the hands that touch you
Well they touch me too
And you talk like a parrot
It's no secret

Crew cut bandit
American wallet
Search for the slut with spirit
I hear she really takes it
No no

Flirting with change and stains
All the hands that touch you
Well they touch me too
And you talk like a parrot
It's no secret
Track Name: Sound Collage
Don't get your wires crossed

We'll see who’s boss

Oh yes we will

It won't be long now
It won't belong
Wires crossed

There's red in me
And there's orange in you
Can you feel it sun
Can you feel it too
This heat on me
And this heat on you

Oh yes I can
Oh yes he can
Oh yes we can
Track Name: Narration
History, is untrue
History, was made for you

Your eyes are barely open
Your eyes are barely closed
Your eyes are so good looking
Your eyes are barely working

You don't care
Enough about time
I don't care
Enough about why

Your eyes are barely open
Your eyes are barely closed
Your eyes so good looking
Your eyes are barely working

Take a bath
In something new
Take a bath
In something that lasts
Track Name: The Story
If we were a shirt
We would be striped
If I was a color
You'd be the light
If you were a child
I'd be your kite
Yeah if I was a shirt
I'd be yours for life

If you were broken
I would be nice
At least the first night
At least that first night

And if we started dating
I'd be all the fights
You'd be perfectly cooked rice
I'd be that awkward spice
If you were a bitch
You'd still have some rights
Yeah if I was a shirt
I’d be yours for life

Yours for life
If I was a shirt
I'd be yours for life
Track Name: Smokestax
Smokestax sunset
Coming down on the off ramp
A train track crash
I make friends with that

Where'd he go
No one knows
Up in smoke

Bringing it back to bear on you

Flowers in the garbage
I call them artists
Flowers in your garbage
I call for justice

We the living - Where'd he go
Living for, living for - No one knows
We the living - Up in smoke
Living for tomorrow

Drown that spider in my wine
Drown that spider one more time
Drown that spider in my wine
Drown that spider

Bringing it back to bear on you

Smokestax sunset
Coming down on the off ramp
A train track crash
I make friends with death

We the living, living for, living for
We the living, living for tomorrow
Track Name: Won't
Beware the band of villains
Searching for extra medicine
Beware the band of villains
Searching for extra medicine

When I wake up
I know you won't
When I come home
I know you won't
But you can help
And you can hold
But I won’t
No I won’t

I won't, I won't
I won't

I won't, I won't
I won't

Beware the band of villains
Searching for extra medicine
Beware the band of villains
Searching for extra medicine

I won't, I won't
I won't

Punch and kick and push em down
You can climb a litte more

A little more
Track Name: Bends Enormous
I crayon my ceiling blue
And shade around my room
I name every hue
And leave the rest to you

But outdoors are the blackened creatures
Oh the clans of preaching cedars
Oh they're acres upon alters
Oh we're nature's growing authors
For you

Oh, and the waves, and the waves

The thunder we made
And the crashing of it's waves

And the waves
For you

And the waves

I crayon my ceiling blue
And shade around my room
I name every hue
And leave the rest to you
For you

Black tide
Comes searching for me
As gold rays
Calm the crashing sea
