Track Name: Leona
the cars come by your house
it's friday night again
I miss the morning before it comes to me
she is here
I've given up love
I've given up wanting love
but I could count the ways I've wanted you
I can't believe you'd want me too
I play guitar and say your name again
come over now
I know you're itchin to
ba da da da da da da

not to say these things fix everything
I'm still a lonely kid
talking about how we're different
I can still taste your kisses
never wanna do my dishes
nothing real's on my wishlist
seeming like a lonely child
I leave the country feeling wild
unsatisfied the moment I arrive
wanting sex and having kids
and feeling bored with violence
it comes to me and finally I fear it
ba da da da da da da
Track Name: Sunday
I'd apologize to you anytime you want me to
I think he's evil privately
hold my tongue and do the dishes
back at home
or standing in the sunlight
you say it's gone

keep you waiting all the time
drunk enough to change my mind and
quoting all the dumbest parts
talk through movies in the dark and
we're still friends
but early in the morning
you say it's gone

trying to find a job again
Leni says she's over working
thought of you the other day
what if I just went away and
I'm alone in the world
Track Name: Ari Song
ask me why are you so far away?
crashing your head into everything
gasping onward just to fall in line
I see you in passing almost all the time

I like your dog
I wanted you to sing along
with me

are you sleeping?
I can't remember all my friends
retreated from them before I ever left
do you know what is this that lives in me?
I grow shapeless in the starry heat

wish I were a dog
I wish that you could sing along
with me
Track Name: Message To You
everybody feels so cold
am I the type you'd like to know?
and I would of missed it
no matter what you said went wrong
no matter how long I'd been gone
I've always known
and I'll never shake it
when I'm feeling drunk and understood
looking for your footprints in the woods
days coming slow

call you when I'm off the plane
lying in the lake all day
remember the summer
a piece of roman candle in my eye
I know you try to never say goodbye
ash on the coast
the world is ending
slow enough to brush my teeth each night
wading through the smoke to find some light
quiet in the snow
Track Name: Nothing Else To Think About
tried to see you
but I was in a fog
shame to shake it off
you chase the loss long as he’s the boss
explains my weirdest dreams
screaming like you wouldn’t believe

tried to know how
everything just ends
doo doo do doo dooo
I know it’s wrong
being short with you
just don’t apologize
heaving like you won’t believe it

downstairs you’re down there
tilt your tired head sideways
saturday you left I slept through every stung
desire on your breath
it’s just like every aggravation never happened
I guess so long

like to be more
just us hanging out
with nothing else to think about
I’m late for work cause you’re here again
the dreamers cross their eyes
double visionary lullabies

today’s the greatest
I know what he’s talking about
dropping out was dumb I think you should have stayed
and been in boring plays
and here we are deaf in the rain
Track Name: Ranch Style Home
please take me home
snuff me out
i lost my phone off in the crowd
i need my gal holding my hand
i need my pals packed in my van

because we got fucked up off the silly little things
now my eyes are out of focus and iʼm spilling all my feelings
i love you
i hope that you know it
i know i donʼt say it enough

we could be lonely
we could make friends
we can kick my heart around in a ranch style home

please let me know
whoʼs on my side
the sun done shone right in my eyes
i lost the road deep in the night
hey baby donʼt say i never tried

you know i get hung up on the silly little things
now my world is out of focus cause my telephone is ringing and
when i pick it up
iʼm talking to you
and youʼre telling me you feel love
all around you

now i know of some folks turning up their nose
theyʼre calling this a double wide
but i say itʼs a ranch style home
and i like them french fried potatoes

hey boo
where are you
do you wanna come to my house and get naked
stay in and maybe make some stains on the blankets fragrance by phoniness
i fear the love of loneliness iʼll surely die adrift
Track Name: Pete's Hill
it's snowy in the world today
a little kid so full of grace
if I'd never met you anyway
if I wasn't going to see you saturday

nocturnal flies in the light
the slow dance of the ill of sight
if I tried my best but killed again
if I hit your chest with gold cement

do do do do do do do do do do
Track Name: Beneath The Lights
a planet in your throat
only I would know
you're never what you show
we go way out beneath the lights
you show me what you think you're like

out running with my dad
20 years could pass
what changes in your sleep?
take me way out beneath the lights
ringing explosions in the night

still trying everyday
gone or just away
don't look at me like that
way out beneath the lights
Track Name: Planes In Front of the Sun
babies in the street
when I wake up
the weirdest dream
leave my house at 10
hear my favorite song again
and I say
have I grown dull on you?
I know I am an alien
or do you not notice cause you've
had too much to think about

you can't believe it anymore
I like the way it was before

planes move through the sky
I walk to work in fading light
daddies with their kids
I still want that
I still feel sick oh
I can't hide from all the violence in my dreams
I can't taste it till I'm drifting off to sleep

hey are you there?
I'll stop shouting
cold in the air
do you taste it?
Track Name: Living Free
eating apples in the yard
you don't know what makes you happy
all the colors in your memories
bleeding out your ears
I'll come knocking soon enough
it'd be easy just to see me
every incident between us as a choking of the wind
daytime in your foggy light
I'll keep sitting by the curbside
watching rainbows in the gutter
you lose even souvenirs
some suggestion that you made
living free as breathing water
all the similarities between the salt lake and the sea

repetition blowing on
I don't know what was the question?
are you honest on the telephone?
here to just move on
awkward angels in the snow
what if I just want a family?
rockets sailing through the morning light
silence and the sky
in the future there is love
I tell myself when I wake up
birds in rain and strangers on the bus
giving me advice
keep a light on while I'm gone
little memories when you lie there
all the years as blurry cars and trees
screaming right past me
Track Name: Cold Hands Warm Heart
I said I'm scared of everything
I'd be angrier without you
I get rusted as a sun tan
like I'd ever wait and see
like every friendship that's ever gone
like every month crushed up in my fingers

don't go out and die
change like shapes in the nighttime
it gets dark

step outside the sky is clear
is all love terrifying in your arms?
let the air in through the window
flickers of a world to come
here but lovelier than this one
see it rippling in the river

still living our lives
it feels so loud but it's alright
stay in my heart
