Track Name: Shakespeare
do you ask for advice
or just look at the sky
do you want to see the light
all my old friends are coming to see me now

is it okay that I'm not in a hurry
all these people rushing around
time flies on a pretty kite
the more you worry, the less it will fly

do you ask for surprise
or just look in my eyes
do you want to see the light
all my old friends are coming to see me now

is it okay that I'm not in a hurry
all these people rushing around
time flies on a pretty kite
the more you worry, the less it will fly
Track Name: Cold Shoulder
I thought I saw everything so clear
I drew the line, I kept you near
The feeling there was so beautiful
It was mutual

how could you turn away
how could, how
how could you get this way
how could, how
it's a cold shoulder

One step forward then two steps back
You leave behind what I attract
The jig is up now on my sanity
That means a lot to me

how could you turn away
how could, how
how could you get this way
how could, how
it's a cold shoulder

the slightest breeze could carry you away
I'll be in the trees carried by the day
Track Name: Alpha Bette feat. Blake Davis
I fell in love with a ghost
She says I love you the most
I give my life to her lust
Woven in a blanket of trust

[though lost to sight she's still to memory dear
tired nature's sweet restorer
somebody's spherical woman
dancing and singing and flirting merrily to your graves]

I fed my love to a ghost
She soaked it in like a rose
I give my life to her lust
She is all there ever was
Track Name: Light Sayer
I'm trying to paint a picture in your head
The ceilings rise from the walls of your mind
I should have given up, should I still try
There was something in the shadows

Out came lightning then
I saw heaven
The words came out like
A warm vibration
The moment at hand
as I understand
Was us in the night
On a thread of darkness

You threw a stone into the lake
Now I'm reeling, caught in your wake
I should have given up, should I still try
There was something in the shadows

Out came lightning then
I saw heaven
The words came out like
A warm vibration
The moment at hand
as I understand
Was us in the light
On a thread of darkness
Track Name: Origami Cascade
how do you want to get your culture?
Track Name: Sludge Soul
How long feeling
Bright and fleeting
Love drunk hippie girl
Sweetened by the sun
Step away from the hurt
Sink your nails into earth
It should be easy
Mother Nature
such a flirt
How long feeling
Dark and decayed
He was a sweet man
Soured by the gun
Step away from the hurt
Sink your nails into earth
It should be easy
Mother Nature
such a flirt
Track Name: Off the Rails
you don't listen
you can have me all you want
you don't see well
you can set your eyes on me all you want
you don't feel well
you can feel me all you want

you don't listen
you can laugh with me all you want
you don't look well
You can close your eyes with me all you want
you don't feel well
you can feel me all you want

Let's go slowly off the rails
Track Name: Will I Get Your Love
I can't keep you on board
If I'm not even on the ship
I've been floating for a long time
now I can barely breathe

I thought I had my mind made up
Is this what I'm made of
Indifference has me tied up
Wondering
Will I get your love anymore?

I've been dying just to live
Cause this one didn't break the skin
Set my body to an endless fire
I'm bound to melt again

I thought I had my mind made up
Is this what I'm made of
Indifference has me tied up
Wondering
Will I get your love anymore?

Keep me on your list
Track Name: Prodigy Porch
was it an accident
where are we now
I don't care

was it inevitable
tear me apart
I don't care
