Track Name: under the mountain, over the moon
though you're over the moon
I'll see you soon
in a field of daffodils
or the copper light of a dream
doubt finds its way into my brain
seeping in like the rainwater on my rooftop

lightning up ahead
creaky doors while I'm in bed
feeling awful blue
I'll follow your path to be true

well met on the path
shared a drink and a laugh
I nearly forgot what I was following for
if you see her please tell
I'll follow her to hell
and if I never find her
I had a good time trying

dark stars sink in hard
shepherd me through the dark
feeling awful blue
I'll follow your path to be true
Track Name: god damn
god damn!
I don't know what to say
I guess I'll just walk away
her eyes
are so painfully bright
I'm going blind alright

will you water my flowers
and let my dog outside?
I can't be here without a disguise

god damn!
the clouds are moving fast
into shapes that I recognize
she's on a jet plane
and my mouth is watering
for another tasty lie

if you see my flowers
please just let them die
I don't wanna know what I would find

she said "there's something that you need to know
it still matters but you have to go"
Track Name: here she comes
out of sight and out of mind
I felt her alien skin against mine
I walked down the beaten path
far off in the darkness I heard the flowers laugh

I don't know how far I have to run
theres a man behind me laughing
with a loaded gun

here she comes, she is
soaking through the walls
here she comes, she is
emptying the ashtray
here she comes, she is
flying down the freeway
here she comes, she is
going going gone

Something dark beneath her stare
if you look real close you'll see a rainbow there
pull is tightly to your chest
feed it to the ghosts all around you for the best

i don't know what part of my head she came from
the devil and the angel on my shoulders have gone numb

here she comes, she is
soaking through the walls
here she comes, she is
emptying the ashtray
here she comes, she is
flying down the freeway
here she comes, she is
going going gone

going going gone
Track Name: you'll never know who i am
please crush my broken bones into pieces
forge them into a statue of a lamb
I wanna graze in the green fields
where the shadows never grow
anyways, you'll never know who I am

when I closed my eyes, I saw the bees flying
while in the world, I felt those tears crying
take away my mind, and let it all fall to smithereens
cold and lonely,
laying in the brine

cloak my bleeding gaze with noise, soft and joyful
tickling my spine down into sleep
I wanna fly in the static sky, with those grey birds
and when the sunlight courses through I'll softly cry

please crush my broken bones into pieces
forge them into a statue of a lamb
I wanna graze in the green fields
where the shadows never grow
anyways, you'll never know who I am
Track Name: are you just a dream?
....
are you just a dream?
I speak your name in my shallow sleep
I felt you slide along
each mile you go, the slower my heart throbs

and your name was sweeter than the taste of cherries
and your voice is all I need
to keep breathing

I'll just dream of you
until the fog blends in with the truth
christmas lights will fade
the moon's pale light draws out the mess I made

I could smell your sweet hair across the room like sunflowers
although you were buried by the booming, pounding showers

are you just a dream?
....
Track Name: it's summer
it's summer
you met all the critters of the forest
they all laughed when you shook their little hands
and it made me feel
like a shiny dime of god

its summer
we waited till the police turned their backs
we turned into the silver fishes
we were pretending not to be
and we never got caught

I opened my eyes to find you
sitting there like a stray cat
cause all of my memories
of you haven't happened yet
oh yeah oh yeah

its summer
i cut the chord and loosed on the horizon
on train tracks that were made of smiling pythons
i was trembling
like a marble rolling down

its almost summer
i arrived at platform nine and three fourths
swimming past cold faces I can't lean on
but you were still in bed
with your eyes wide open

I opened my eyes to find you
sitting there like a stray cat
cause all of my memories
of you haven't happened yet
oh yeah oh yeah
Track Name: the daydreamer's hollow hand
the daydreamer's hollow hand
fell right on me once again
but I'm not afraid of him
I was lonely anyways

his head's as soft as the dark side
of the moon when comes the night
so when he gets sad
he brings me there and takes me for a ride

SO I FOUND THE CRACKED SKULL OF A FLOWER!!!!!
AND I SPRINKLED IT ON YOUR SWEET SMELLING HEAD!!!!!!
AND WHEN THE SNOW FELL LIKE A SHOWER!!!!!!!!!!!
WE WATCHED IT ALL COLLECT ON THE FLOOR
FROM UNDER MY BED!!!!!!!!!!

he took my through a glowing tube
out of the jingle jungle's cruel
and I lost my feet
there was nothing to catch us there

and each time a cymbal sounds
a spright of birds just fly around
so I sang his name out loud
he said he'd love me anyways

SO I FOUND THE CRACKED SKULL OF A FLOWER!!!!!
AND I SPRINKLED IT ON YOUR SWEET SMELLING HEAD!!!!!!
AND WHEN THE SNOW FELL LIKE A SHOWER!!!!!!!!!!!
WE WATCHED IT ALL COLLECT ON THE FLOOR
FROM UNDER MY BED!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: it was alright (your heart was shining through your eyes last night)
.... will you leave me behind?
I've been left to die in the bathtub
countless times before,
oh yeah

will you leave me alone
as I set out on the dying road?
cause I just wanna be a wheel
but I don't wanna feel that

your heart was shining through your eyes last night
it was alright
your heart was shining through your eyes last night
it was alright

are you afraid of the ticking clock?
light it up with my tinder box
and watch the minute hand slow down
and fall off

will you leave me behind
as I walk alone past the blank road signs?
but it's okay
cause I'll remember

how your heart was shining through your eyes last night
it was alright
your heart was shining through your eyes last night
it was alright
Track Name: brain cells
Reach into the ocean and pull you out
Or I could pretend that I never heard you shout
I could come back someday
And find out what will happen to me

I could pull the moon down from the sky
And the day that chickens learn to fly
I will hop on their wings,
And they will let me out

Some say the earth is an egg that is defected and dead
And the moon just hasn’t quite hatched yet
When it does they will leave
And be sent by the sun to bed

Struck me on the head
Brain cells floating ‘round your bed
But you can’t sleep because you know,
You’ll soon be dead
I could never see
Why you were always chasing after me
My imagination as you can see,
Is nothing more than fiction
Yellow birds were once hiding in each painting
Now their down in the mines, waiting just waiting
For another crack in the wall,
Their walls soon crack around them

Back when neighbors made a carpet out of the ground
Well he knocked me around, that’s how I learned to see each sound
Now I can’t hear the sweet sound
Or her voice in the night

When they fly off, I won’t stand to
But I will make enough room for you
I hope you’re ready, for what the birds are goanna tell you

Throw your hand to me,
What are you waiting for?
Look at the wings
What are you waiting for?
I could never see
Why you were always chasing after me
My imagination as you can see
Is nothing more than fiction
Struck me on the head
Brain cells floating ‘round your bed
But you can’t sleep because you know,
You’ll soon be dead
Look at the wings, what was I waiting for
I’m staring at the sky, followed by the ground
What was I waiting for?
