Track Name: Sometimes It's a Gray World
there it is
that whirlwind gone by
a piece of me follows and dies

there it is
shiny fork in the road
it taunts and teases me, "don't move"

overcooked the idea, now it's black
overstayed my welcome, now it's gone

what is it that's under my control?
only what a shaky grip can hold

don't move
Track Name: DizZzy
built myself a nest so deep
now i’m picking it apart

navigating empty streets
now i’m turning back around

the dizzy little lie that’s passing through
it stains my cotton skin a shade of blue

i'm dizzy
yeah, i'm dizzy
feelin’ dizzy just for you
Track Name: Easy Come, Easy Go...
everything around me, bouncing all around
lost my head in dreams, they never land
everyone is fresh and new, but me
say a word, that's what i'm supposed to be

where can i go to get away?
where do i go to get away now?

easy come, easy go
where did you go?

easy come
it's time to go
Track Name: What's It Like There, Tomorrow?
i looked past the smoke
and i found all your mirrors there
can you find a new way with me?

i burned all the trees down
now i'll get used to all this sun
won't you start the new day with me?

close my eyes for tomorrow
closed my eyes just to close them
knocking at the door again

what's it like there, tomorrow?
how's it going there, tomorrow?
what's it like over there, tomorrow?

is this a start?
or just another celebration?
looping on the same track
waiting for a new mutation
waiting for a new mutation
waiting on the next mutation
knocking at the door again

what's it like there, tomorrow?
how's it going there, tomorrow?
what's it like over there, tomorrow?
Track Name: Here on the Moon
found a breath the other day
one right next to mine
i stole it from the train
was mine for good

but now...

the grass grows into the ground
shields its quiet eyes from me
i've landed on the moon

had a thought the other day
one that kept me warm
i walked it to the train
it's gone for good

believe me when i say
i'll never be the same
Track Name: Crowded
where'd they get all those ideas from?
they're cheating

where'd all these people show up from?
(i’ve)been sleeping

there’s a crowd
so loud

and when i’m close
i can’t figure it out...
what’s missing here
Track Name: Wormy, Old Me
sand paper people
hurts when i touch
letting me down
when i don’t ask for much

wormy old me
don’t get too close
letting me down
when i need it the most

wormy old me
Track Name: What My Atoms Will Allow
"what are we?", you ask
floating through the emptiness with you
we're one with all the stars
our atoms side by side

what is it you want?
born inside a thought within your mind
i shake so you will notice
my atoms so confined

i can only give you what my atoms will allow
Track Name: Placeholder
when you've got nothing
you've got me

cuz that's at least something

you’ll find a person
with something you value
(it’s not me)
Track Name: I'm Runnin' for the Hills
i'm running for the hills
wherever they may be
and i'm shaking from the lightning
striking down on me

there's a part of us that's dying
there's a part of us that's dying/crying
no more, we'll be

but there's part of us so distant
there's part of us so distant
that we want to be
Track Name: Two Kinds of People
there are two kinds of people
there's me, then there's you
i drown in the river
you build a canoe

there are two kinds of people
there's you, then there's me
you walk through the door
i fumble with keys

you do what you do
i'll do what i can
Track Name: Feeling Funny, Kind Of
wobbly arms caught something
little something i’ve been wanting

(something i never wanted)

feeling kind of funny
these runny cartoon edges
and surely something's coming

feeling kind of worried
those greasy paws on you
but surely something's sticking
Track Name: Of All the Eyes
unrefined
it's time i
realize
what's mine
of all the eyes
to try
got yours, yours
got yours, yours
i got
i got yours
big surprise
you didn't fit my
new disguise
improvise
and all the guys
you try
they're yours, yours
they're yours, yours
you’ve got
you’ve got yours
Track Name: Who Speaks to You?
is this real?
then why does it feel so strange?

'feeling good' on our minds
crushed together so tight

the soothing but toxic fumes
demanding they be consumed

it's what makes us feel real
it's what makes me feel real

who speaks to you you in the night?
who speaks to you when you sleep?
who speaks to you when you're dead?
who speaks to you when you're gone?
