Track Name: Seabather
i’m no good at firefights, these arms they won’t throw.
take me to the other side and i’d want to go home.

picking from your father’s lines, or ones he never spoke.
your thinking winter wonderland, i’m half but unmarked snow.

then in my head, there was a wonderful accident.
then in my head, half was only one.

living is two seasons, lose one, lose them all.
taking half for granted, falls white from long exposed.

i left and it broke your heart, wrote songs i won’t show.
cause best when bright objective sparks,
but my mind keeps throwing stones.

then in my head, there was a wonderful accident.
then in my head, half was only one.
then in my head, i will part the oceans.
Track Name: You & I
peter had a brother but i don’t know the name
the things that i remember are the things that always change
you and i keep running an allegoric cave
made our minds with trouble and fun.

peter had a lover so he bought a decent ring
he put it on her finger and he told her decent things.
you and i went driving in a rusty old van
as the night told stories we drove.

you and i, we’re always wasting time, you and i.
you and i combine and make time lines, you and i.

peter lost his firsts, made his seconds playing games
tried to find a reason by believing he was saved
you and i write letters each and every way
mixing down down down down down.

you and i, we’re always wasting time, you and i.
you and i combine and make time lines, you and i.
everything is precious, you and i.
Track Name: Cities in Circles
cities in circles again
impossible structures and shape shifting trends
the dancer got wasted in vain
while i’m leading her trail with my buttercup builds

mad men gone sailing in trends
she’s caught in music and spinning my threads
jackets and camshafts prepared
post-war fitzgerald, i’m cities in circles again

then you, you called me up
and i said it was fine
but when you, you called me up
the magic moment went moving on

went to smoke in the cedar room
it’s where we laugh and undress
trading parts we don’t normally use.
then i forget, that we could have been married, too.
then i forget.
