Track Name: Rosies
you are the last of all the rosies
he was the weight and all that's worth
your eyes are those of a traveler
sucking the marrow from the earth

tried to run over; it ran over you
strong is a word you called the few
in the midst of a list you wrote struck by the hues

you know so well
we've been spinning stories that just won't sell
cause you're stuck in time
you can't change your mind
it's been left behind
you know so well
that everything goes to hell

the roof grew lazier, remember?
the moans it groaned would tuck you in
when you awoke the sky was over
on hands and knees you lived again

can't tell a lie if i look in your eye
all these years have passed you by
want just to laugh but i can't help but cry
Track Name: Jelly The Queen
sip on some jelly
the queen is ready to take the life from me
last time she took away my eyes
it's hard for me to act surprised

drunken but not on fire
i let fate walk my legs
she's not rough but she's good enough
for one who sleeps in my head

oh, how we can't refuse
just one more line, just one excuse
it's wasted on our tongue
we build and drill away
the acid's stone burned through the clay
it's wasted, i can taste it

true line's i've seen on your face
true lines have been quick to erase
your lies sing desperate to my soul
sounds like you've never sung at all

i forgot my shoes very late last night
i never looked down but i though it was fine
when my feet started to bleed it felt so strange
it all reminded me of you
something i can't explain
Track Name: You Wake
in the throes of indecision
a thing that no one ever knew
about whatever i was singing
or what i would do to you
my intellect is no exception
and i am no vitruvian man
but as a member of the millions
i'll do the best i can

you wake me from my dreams
the best ones i'd ever seen
you wake me from above
but i'm going down again

one hasty addition
the only option left to choose, it seems,
is sex without affection, or jazz without the blues
now all the kids are moving
i've got lists of lists to show
that when we're playing these games
however strained, we always seem to know
Track Name: Pirate Muse
got some terrible news
threw my script out today
words never had much use
cause it's not what you say
am i lonely, broken hearted, or insane?

we've been holding on to this
hoping maybe i would
take you for a victim as you club me on the head
drag me back down to your cave
this shell of a lifeless stan is breathing
release me
i wonder if you can

your skin didn't bruise
your frame's still contained
if your body's been used
my body is drained
and we're lonely, broken hearted, all the same
Track Name: Promiscuity
maybe the bat of an eye in need is the only thing that i can see
twisting, moving around the ground
it's all in my head
by the way you hold your man it's easy to tell who's in command
he'll never seem to understand
it's all in his head

innocent like a misfit
your eyes locked in for the kill
i don't understand and you don't act surprised
cause you know i never will

maybe i'll manage a miniature moment
to measure the man in my head (if i've got it)
but i don't care enough to find out
who's right or wrong
will i leave you all alone
maybe i will, maybe i won't
maybe i caught your eye all wrong
it's all in my head
Track Name: Big Epic
take a slow end and go out to the sea
make all your friends come along
even if we can't find our selves for long
we will have a song

cause i just don't want to see
the world as you made it for me

i've been here before; i know your name
i'm willing to give if you'll only take
i've been here, make it clear: i'll be here again
the waves will grind my bones to sand
Track Name: Llsr Ciaak
red string tied around your neck, here we are
the only thing we have left
so grab the wheel, whatever you feel
the wrong side's the right place to loosen up
forget brakes, the edge is almost gone
but we still miss everyone
while our skin burns in the sun
we broke our glass for fun

feet up to fall flat
nose cold and i plan to attack
the slow sink and then to wake the slap
folded in your palm
forget the hour now, forget the day
i lost my body somewhere
by now it's too late

your skin, it breaths like the depths
from it swept free floating, black, and aimless
who could ever want to make you take it back

maybe laying still is the only way to live until
we lay weary heads at the feet of milestones
and all the shit we've read

i know it's just as simple as the way you move
i know, i don't know
Track Name: Oars As Arms
the hypocrite he lies to me
and sweeps up all my history
but he's just going to die with me
his body burning in my sea

a call to arms is in my chest
but i think i'll give life a rest
my final act is just this jest
a finger laid across your breast
and now we're young and moving fast
said the captain to the mast
beneath the ocean laid it's trap
but they just had to sail and laugh

your confidence amazes me
but then you've never been to sea
the boat you rode would speak softly
the oars as arms would move you through each heartbeat
