Track Name: Egg
We are needy
We are needed

We are searching
For a feeling
Track Name: Something In My Head
There's something in my head
and it goes around and around
there's something in my head

I'm just a little boy
I'm not an animal
but I have feelings too
and they want to be used

There's something in my head
And it goes around and around
There's something in my head

Why don't you go to bed
First you gotta lay it down
Then you go to bed

There's something in my head
And it goes around and around
There's something in my head

I like the things you said
So I'm gonna stick around
Because I like the things you said

I'm dancing in the red
Now I'm gonna boogie down
I'm dancing in the red

There's something in my head
And it goes around and around
There's something in my head

I'm gonna see my friends
And I'm gonna be a clown
Yeah, I wanna be your clown
I'm gonna see my friends

oh oh oh
Track Name: Candy Blood
I'm not anyone
Who is anyone
Drag your feet to the old chalk board
Your my cracks and empty stomach
Take these bones into your hiding place
Teeth just in the way
Give me hand grenades
Curtain eyelids
I want windows
Don't mind me
The water's in my mouth
Fingers dipped in ink
Lips like candy blood

ohhhhh

Where is everyone
I am everyone
Swordfish shadows
Blocked with smoke
Bed is broken
Ocean's calling
Take it easy
I'm just walking
Say my piece
In peace
And roaring fire
From the big hole
Up in the sky
Make me promises
Bring me anything
Everything is glass winged fragile moths

Ohhh

Anytime I need to
I need you
Track Name: Crazy Lights
I was outside looking through the glow
I wish I was a new teenage girl
We dance to remember
We dance to forget
Now theres no where left for us to go
So we got whiskey instead
All night long lasted so much longer way back when

Crazy lights
Mysterious sounds
Colorful armor of smoke
Baby get down!
All alone
But no one gets singled out
Watch the dead

I can see some strawberry dream
Lift over my head while
I was shaking in exstasy
Oh let me be
Princess of the empty
I'll take a rainy day over a dead leg
So let your hair down
Or cut it off
Die it red just like you did

Crazy lights
Mysterious sounds
Colorful armor of smoke
Baby get down!
All alone
But no one gets singled out
Watch the dead

Crazy lights
Mysterious sounds
Colorful armor of smoke
Baby get down!
All alone
But no one gets singled out
Singled out
Singled out
Singled out
Watch the dead
Track Name: Coyote And Mule
Babe, I said I need you and I do
Babe, you said you want me to be true
Babe, I never mean to hurt your heart
Babe, you know I got to fall apart

That's me and you
Coyote and Mule

Babe, I think about you when I'm dead
Babe, I know you want me in your bed
Babe, you got me going all the time
Babe, you know I know you are mine

That's me and you
Coyote and Mule

Babe, you know you don't have to prove anything to me

That's me and you
Coyote and Mule
Track Name: Mt. Olympus
I got things I need to do
I got things I need to do
And when I'm all through
I got plans for me and you
I got plans for me and you
And when they all fall through
We couldn't live a picnic
I hope they'll take us on Mount Olympus
Track Name: Ice
I don't want to do those things
I don't want to ride that train
I don't want to fall into
Everything you think is good
oh

I am always lost at sea
Up against the world with blood on my feet
No one ever understands
I don't really expect you to

And everything is so wrong
When everything takes so long
I never want the ice to surround me
Happy

What if we were over there
What if I just didn't care
I could be a bird to you
To me I'll always be a wolf

And everything is so wrong
When everything takes so long
I never want the ice to surround me
Happy
Track Name: Floating
I'm not a rock
I'm just a little bird
Caught in an arctic gale
These are the things I know
If anything
Tides turning on a dime
And so forth
Change is the game of clocks and anchors
Seem to be out of touch
But always there
When you need them most to hold you down

But sometimes just floating is better

Staring across the edge of a broken wheel
Look down into your hands
Count fingers
I'm not a king
I'm just a firefly
Lost in a world of light
Only the dead have eyes forever
Look down into your hands
Count fingers
Here is the place you stand
When everything moves you will have your legs again

Whatever you think you know
You know
Whatever you think you know
You know

But sometimes just floating is better

Nothing's wrong don't burn the bridges
Don't burn the bridges down

I'm not a rock
I'm just a little bird
Caught in an arctic gale
Track Name: Sirens
ooooooooo
Track Name: On The Heels Of Achilles
Little hands and little words move everything
Push around the candy on the table
Rope and pulley sun into the sky again
Lower me into the hole I came from

Hold on

Everything's moving at lightning speed
We get to where we want
Lay down to sleep as the sky explodes
The colors cold and hot

Let me hold the crystal in your eye again
I have my reasons
Sometimes I'm a reasonable man
Soft in corners
Help the silver reach the moon
On chariots we cross the open frozen fall

Everything's moving at lightning speed
We get to where we want
Lay down to sleep as the sky explodes
The colors cold and hot
Tell me a story without the hand behind the back
Fingers crossed
Running into ourselves again
It's best to just hold on
Hold on
Hold on

Track Name: Kyrie

Track Name: Cold Waves
Everything you told me was a joke
Gold was never used to kill the moon
So set me down and let me clean my throat
Vacantly I climbed into the moat
And swam across

No one ever told me I could die
But I never stopped what I was doing to wonder why
So bull the dreamers caught up in explosions
I am trying very hard not to stand still

Let me know
Let me know
Let me know
That you see me
I think I may be gone

Cold giant waves
Cold giant waves
Up and over
Track Name: Muslces
We have launched with valuable eggs
But time got lost
Now I'm up to my neck
What once was leaking
Now is a horrid rent inside this hull
Hands shake out of control
Pressure builds
Balance has been stolen

Little child
Brush your hair

Be strong
Be strong
We got muscles
We can move
It won't be long
It won't be long
Until our muscles need to be used

Big eyes fight the horror blanket bruise
Guilt hangs from the ceiling

Hello gloom
I'm happy you could get some rest
Pulled from records
Cases of bliss
Found blood on the carpet

Little child
Brush your teeth
Say your prayers
With your eyes

Be strong
Be strong
We got muscles we can move
Won't be long
Won't be long
Until our muscles need to be used
Track Name: Other Side
I'm alright
Your eyes are so bright
I could use them for a flash light
But this plague is a bore
I feel like a whore
When I look on the other side of this wall
See a valley so fair
Every body there
Seems so happy and so free
What about me

I jumped down
To the other side
And I couldn't believe my eyes
The dirt was really trash
And the people were jerks
And the air tasted like death

Every bodies got their problems
But its hard to see them
From the other side
Track Name: Blood Red Boots
Wandering inside the world she knows
Telling ghosts to live wherever they want
Saving junk she finds inside the hill
Hand to ear to hear whats calling on the wind

In blood red boots

Running in between the trees she knows
Everything is malleable she knows

In blood red boots

In a dream
You are me
Little girl
Radiant bug
Talking gears
You are me
Track Name: The Inn
It's true that things will move
Sometimes I don't want them to
The all night diner where
My parents had first met
Where I first had coffee and cigarettes
With me and all my friends
Windows turn to wood
Goodbye to the Inn
Oh I remember when
I remember when
