You watched me as I fell Into the acid rain I melt The second I found you you were lost Cast aside and tossed off My family and just the friends I needed I think this all just bears repeating

Why, Dave? 02:10
I’m not all out of love Just the one thing I’ve been dreaming of Motivation my old friend This is the state I’m in I’m waiting patiently for Something that might never begin

I see the signs in Helvetica That make me feel at home with you And though it sounds so angelic I know that it is not the truth Your eyes are in the mirror of a rented car I don't know where you're going But I know that it's far Far away from this side of the land Somewhere out west Like the settlers planned You said you wanted to catch the sun And hold it by its rays I guess you want to grab it when its tired At the end of the day Don't let it burn your hands or your teeth Even if you succeed, don't forget about me It'll melt your ambitions And make you suspicious of the pale light And you'll leave us here in the east With a permanent night And outside the carolers started to sing And I heard the church bells starting to ring I think I’ve had enough Found my diamond in the rough Miles and miles of stars And nothing else in the sky And not for one second did we Ever stop and wonder why

I sneak inside your room And slip under the covers To sing it out to you That there is no light above us And you let me know That you have no inhibitions And you let it show That this is your little tradition I know I won't to stay young, I won't be 18 forever But I like it the way it is I'm not picking any successors Don't expect me to emerge Victorious on the weekend I'm out of breath Cross legged in the deep end Now I'm sitting alone In your smoked out basement And I'm wondering if I should call But I'd rather do nothing at all Hold me down and shake me out Give me all of your dirty looks Were still praying for a spark On the side of a used up matchbook Your sharp mind is under fire Little wings caught in barbed wire Elephants on spindled legs Bring us all more clouded days

Baker House 03:05
Our eyes dance with the light that's bouncing off the moon and shines in through the roof Ask why tonight and I'll give it up to you in a thousand different tape loops Stay dim star bright we don't want to have to see what goes on beneath the feeling A different sight, when the birds are at the bridge we'll go off without a hitch I know I've got a lot of crazy left to deal with, but I cleared my head and now my throat and let the wheels spin. We left it all behind our friends our lives our problems, we assumed we had the time to figure out and solve them Only thorns did form Rotten fruit well worn Felled by sweet decay Pray for better days How will i know that you're not just going to hurt me when our intentions make the both of us deserving? When will I feel like I am young again, these awkward bones and aching ligaments and when the reaper comes what will I say to all my loved ones?

I was home to the rag and bone now I'm sitting by my lonesome I stripped myself down layer by layer and rid the world of what laid there Maybe later in the year when all the feelings disappear We'll pick up where we left off when our intentions become clear Now I'm off in some strange town I'm dodging eyes and staying down Greeting faces with a frown never hearing any unknown sounds Today I stayed in bed threw the covers over my unwashed head Oh let the wheels turn while my name is being burned This song is for your heart, been broken from the start If we don't get well soon, we'll lock ourselves in our own tombs with vacant floors in every room As it started getting dark I walked back to where the car was parked Through the shards of light I could see you picking scabs and forming scars And I know that though I can't begin to fix your broken dream One day you'd see the light and you'd find that love still reigns supreme

Girl, I need your love I need your touch, Come save me, lush It doesn't matter if it's fiction I'm sitting through your false benediction Girl, I need your love Your touch, it's all too much Enough's enough Our love is a crutch Can't you see See my face Can't you see I know it's too late Constantly complicated Meaning of words faded We're young we're dumb But still we're jaded
10.
A Present 03:57
You’ve got to let me know if it starts to snow Round here we feast on stormy weather And if the rain gets in we will begin again We’ll see this out together And I’d know where to go if you’d just take it slow I’m feeling like a fox in winter I’m running out of holes where I can hide my nose Oh god what have I gotten into And if you’d let me in we’d bear the latest sin As long as we faced it together But since you’ve known me for too long You know that soon I’ll be gone I will be gone by the time you get home
