Track Name: Bleomycin
initium, sapientiae timor domini
(the fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom)
Track Name: Aim Slow
sweet golden sunshine
revealed the towers fall
and i knew that i’d be coming through your window
just to see if you were gone
cold silver raindrops
that float upon her hair
i’m scared and i am running through my memory
just to see if you were there

though i aim slow
my god’s insane

we both disagree
and i couldn’t see
but this time i’ma make time
to say what i mean

though i aim slow
my god’s insane.
Track Name: Getting Clean
though i’m on vacation
i’m feeling in control
or stuck inside a hole with no one else
and though i think i’m patient
i’m curled up like a child
i must be in denial of something else

i’m not getting clean clean like i wish you were

i’m tired of your basement
i’m like a wishing well
you know that i wish you well when i move on
no matter where i’m stationed
i’ll think of all your love
the cactus patterned rug that we slept on

i’m not getting clean like i wish you were
Track Name: Get Better Soon
though i smoke it’s been a long long time
we haven’t spoke it’s been a long long time
and though i said goodbye a lot of times
you know that i would die if you weren’t mine

and though i’ll always tuck my shirt
it looks much better to you
i let you brush my hair but
it looks much better to you
i heard you’re feeling sick
i feel much better than you
i hope that you will get better soon

i know that you have got stuff from the past
that you might have to face if this will last
i’ll hold your hand and make them land the plane
we’ll grab our bags and hop on the next train

and though i’ll always tuck my shirt
it looks much better to you
i let you cut my hair but
it looks much better to you
i heard you’re getting sick
i feel much better than you
i hope that you will get better soon
Track Name: Only Child
i’ll try to speak in phrases that sound self assured
“machines became the scenes of some forgotten world”
this lonely caravan
with only ativan

the smell of sanitation’s got me feeling down
this benedryl iv has turned my head around
my hair is falling out
my parents are calling now

it’s the same though
i’m the only child
i can play for all the wings and wires
i’m ashamed of all the things i’ve done
i stay away from all the chosen ones
Track Name: Raincoat
if i could be your raincoat
i’d hope to keep you dry
i’d love to be your scapegoat
and you could blame me
when i was right

i thought you’d understand me
but somehow things went wrong
please don’t reprimand me
here we stand b
life goes on

find me on the staircase
to watch my parents fight
i think you made a fair case
for why i can’t sleep
alone at night

i thought that we’d have children
i thought that love exists
if this what you wanted
back when we started
then why’d we kiss
Track Name: Leaving California
i’m going back
the turning leaves
i’ll see my dad
i’ll smoke his weed

no fires or floods around me
tornados or quakes
i won’t have to look behind me
for bear cubs or snakes

i’m going back
the mountain breeze
i’ll see my dad
i’ll let him be

no fires or floods around me
tornados or quakes
i won’t have to look behind me
for bear cubs or snakes
Track Name: Stereo
god has a plan for us
god has a plan
eating right and sleeping right
flawed by design

i feel like i have been avoiding you
it’s been a month or two since i learned your name
when i knew that i could get along with you
i took a stereo view of what’s inside your brain
Track Name: Eyes of Vermont
now that i’m honest
and know all the pain that that brings
it feels like a number
i throw in the snow and dig up in the spring

and when i get home
i hope that it shows and it’s obvious
when we’re alone
i love you with eyes of vermont where i flew

now that i love you
and know all the joy that that brings
you feel like another
i plant in the dirt and wait for it to rain

and when i get home
i hope that it shows and it’s obvious
when we’re alone
i love you with eyes of vermont where i flew
Track Name: Saturn Return
ecce ego ipse reproofs efficiar
(i, myself, should become a castaway)
