Track Name: NO MO RUN
Sit silent and stare,
and wonder if you were ever there at all
I hung your painting on my wall so I would not forget.
And darken the lights
the brightness hurts my eyes
and the smoke yellows the pages taped to hang at once for all these troubled days

this one's for all the silver tongues
here's to all the two faced
you're free but you don't wanna be
and I'm stuck, but I can't stop running

Sit silently there
and wonder if you were ever here at all
I've got nowhere else to go, and I don't wanna be alone
If my liver's black
then my lungs are green and my eyes are dark smoked glass
I think I'm living in the past with all of last month's trash
and in that landfill, in the dirt between your toes
I was laughing, I was sewing garbage into clothes
for war

this one's for all the silver tongues
here's to all the two faced
you're free but you don't wanna be
and I'm stuck but I can't stop running
this one's for all the forked tongues
here's to all the satans
we're free but you don't want us to be
and I'm stuck but I can't stop running x3
Track Name: Ouija Rhymers, Inc.
I made sense of your letter,
I didn't like what I read
written in strange indistinguishable characters,
I thought the language was dead,
I searched the basement of the library
for an ancient cryptograph
I didn't like what I read
and it made me wanna laugh
it read:
"put on your goddamn seatbelt
this ain't no magic carpet ride.
You were the doctor in that hospital
that let me die in another life
and I am starting to think your brain was stolen out of your head
I never wanna see you again, to me you're just as well dead"

I made sense of your message
with a little effort and a little thought
you used to look right through me
Like my presence you just forgot
but with this new invisibility
I might just stand at your door
and ring the bell all goddamn day
and when you lose it I'll keep ringing it more
cuz I am starting to think your brain was stolen out of your head
I never wanna see you again to me you're just as well dead
Track Name: River Kissed
I'm going to the river
finally made it down
you can catch me kissing the ground
I made so much sound
fire come down and save me now

give me a kiss and a quiver
learning to take it slow
you can catch me drinking alone
I made so much sound
fire come down and save me now

give me a boat and a paddle you can find me upstream
yeah I will fight a losing battle till I'm taken by the queen
and she will strike down upon me with great vengeance and furious anger
give me a heart full of sorrow and a dusty guitar
yeah we can learn to love tomorrow as an empty moving car
and we will curse the autopilot harshly and very loud
I made so much sound
fire come down and save me now

burnt to ashes splashing in the water
drowning faster quickly sinking down
burnt to ashes drowning faster

can you learn to love tomorrow x3
can you learn
Track Name: God Is Absolutely Everywhere and Right Now He's Drunk and Singing Badly In the Backseat of My Car
One of these days I'm gonna write you back about
one of those things that I just have to ask:
Is it gonna be all for one, or all or nothing?
I don't really wanna know the answer

Violence breeds violence, and distance makes the heart grow fonder;
I need a longer vacation than most,
and it's science, it's science! the chemicals causing the awkward silence between us,
don't ever say goodbye and mean it, don't mean it!

One of the bigger questions of the universe:
How are we gonna make these bitter feelings work?
when I went to ask the man with all the answers
he was nowhere to be found.
Said to myself I've made a terrible mistake,
said to myself we better get out of this place,
so I went to find the most available machine
to wake me from this tearing fever dream

and you were bionic, an android with the love most chronic,
you beat me at Sonic, and left me in the dust
because violence breeds violence, and distance makes the heart grow stronger;
I need a longer vacation than most,
and it's science, it's science! the chemicals causing the awkward silence between us,
don't ever say goodbye and mean it, don't mean it!
Don't mean it
Track Name: The Insignificance of Broccoli
I'm not the one to complain,
but I've got this fever in my brain
switched the cables again
frequencies you haven't played.
The only one with a brain
she wants a comet in her name
shake the stars off the frame
and let the meteors rain.

Don't let the meteors rain down
you know we need that regular rain around
and in the bigger sense of things if you're a cloud,
if you're a big rain cloud,
well I'm just a droplet

The only ones with a heart
we loved those veggies from the start
making artichoke hearts
pay for the winter and
partly that was one of my faults
I let the radishes rot
burnt the cabbage and squash
worse than the first autumn frost

don't let the meat-eaters rain down
you know we need that vegetable green around
and in the bigger sense of things if you're a plow
if you're the farmer's plow,
then I'm just some broccoli
Track Name: Reminiscing in the Storm
I am such a bore lately,
I can’t keep myself from contemplating the bad things,
the bad one liners,
like the time I caught the well on fire,
well I was just making light of a rainy day.
I had no plans to stay hydrated.
The lightning struck so close it could’ve blown our heads right off,
the thunder was so loud it was shaking the ground.
So we cut a rug,
we stood and hugged for maybe 15 minutes.
I’m still not sure what I have to give you, but I’m glad you stick around,
Cuz I am such a bore lately,
Yeah, I am such a bore.
Track Name: R U Free -or- Voting for the Donner Party
Well I am walking down the railroad tracks
and I'll keep walking no I'm never looking back
till i see that train coming around the bend

I heard you been stalking my life in the past
but I'll keep walking I heard you're never gonna last
in a world that wants your head from the moment you step inside the door

and truth be told we're all dead!
create your own reality find the truth inside your
and when you wake up in the morning
realize you've been misled to believe
that nothing you could ever want would be free

some day soon now, when this life is over
I'll fly away

and in the morning, open up my eyes to a
phanny pack surprise, a fact I realized not long ago
capitalists make the best cannibals
no care for the other, hunger growing ever stronger

and it won't be long now, till this life is over
and I'll fly away

because the truth is we're all fuckin' livin'!
living the lives we thought we'd never lead
and in seven years time when you're finally free,
remember it's only what you make it out to be
Track Name: Gargoyle Teeth
I looked into the gargoyle's mouth
and I saw some things I didn't wanna see:
no teeth,
just a forked tongue,
and a lot of regrets;
a life lived without love or happiness.

CHORUS

I jumped into the cold dark void,
no sound passed through my ears
I think I forgot the sound of your voice,
and what's worse,
I learned to die alone
means no sweetness or light,
to empathize with black holes,
oh no no no

CHORUS

I walked into the werewolf's home
I was met with kindness I have never known
so surprised when she said
I was her very first friend
and we spent the night howling at the moon,
and it went a little something like:

CHORUS
Track Name: Young Runner!
When I was young when I was young
they said, kid you better run you better run
and I haven't stopped running, not to this day

when I broke those bricks, I broke those bricks,
and when I burnt the bridge connecting me to my past life
I was born again in the fire and the smoke

and I haven't stopped running ever since
I keep making these chords make my feet make the mile again
and when I pass by your house, you can be sure that we're still friends,
but the road is long and the one I'm on never ends

Once you were young, well I was young
and they said, son you better run you better run
so I laced up my intentions, they were the only shoes I had

when I sparked the gas, lit that match
the resulting blast blew my bones right back into star stuff,
I was born again as the planets and the sun

and I haven't stopped burning ever since
I keep making these chords make my feet make the light years again,
and when I shine on your house you can be sure that we're still friends,
but space is cold, and the universe never ends
Track Name: Candle
(spoken)
You were an urn made of candlewax you were drying out, flame burning out as the droplets started to solidify and remain as blemishes against your otherwise perfectly smooth wax skin. 1, 2, 3, 4, maybe 5 flaws too many for you, you knew the only way to get rid of them was by letting your candle burn brighter and longer than ever before, and so you did, and here you are, flawless, but you no longer exist.

Little birds eating corpses,
raven thoughts fly in from the south,
and I am lost in the driver's seat
fly like a moth into the fire of my headlights
and burn.
Little birds, flying southbound
winter winds cut through my eagle's nest
skeletons once ripe with flesh and blood
call for light only you can shine upon them
you could shine

but the last time that you called me your flame was burnt out.

My life in the wax museum,
the shallow melt away
when you let your candle burn
and what is left will return
till we're ashes in an urn

close your eyes
it's no surprise
we've been runnin on nothin
and now we've died
in my deepest sleep
flames crawl all over me
don't be surprised
everyday we die

little angels birthed from mud
we were ripe with flesh and blood
we had learned to melt in hell
we'll lose our shells

we're ashes in an urn (your flame was burnt out)
let that fire burn (until it burns out)
what is left will return (melting in hell)
you could shine upon them (until you burn out)
Track Name: Star Thief
I watched a skyscraper collapse into the ocean,
a testament of the times,
I sat my tired legs down on the tired ground
and I watched that tower fall

then they stole the sun right out of my sky
and they turned the moon around to the dark side
now the only light is from the absences of such sights
searching for answers in the places where the stars don't shine
