Track Name: city
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I'm a brother to the city I live in
I need rebar to hold me up
I'm a brother to the city I live in
designed, redesigned
a big black hole dissipative centre
a big, big, big, big, big, big

check out
this body
growing
part blood, part concrete
and growing

I'm a lover of the city I live in
revolt, no I won't
I'm a lover of the city I live in
skyline, steel sunrise
I'm a lover of the city
I'm a lover of the city

growing
part blood, part concrete

Track Name: diary
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I never talked if I was nervous
I never talked if I was curious
I kept a diary, secretly
I kept a diary

my science projects were not rational
I studied love instead of homework
I walked you home in my dreams
and I bought you presents with one dollar a week

you once said hi to me
as the bells were ringing
your backpack looked like it weighed a thousand pounds
and I wished that I was in it

Track Name: car
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

engine run
engine break down
money spent to fix it

money's gone
but engine's purring
fuck my wallet, fuck it

engine for heart, money for spirit

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Track Name: bike
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

don't want a bike to ride
don't want a bike to ride
don't want a bike to ride
don't want a bike to ride
don't want a bike to ride
don't want a bike to ride
got money but I got no time
don't want a bike to ride

don't mind the price of gas
don't mind the price of gas
don't mind the price of gas
don't mind the price of gas
don't mind the price of gas
don't mind the price of gas
got money but I got no time
don't mind the price of gas

Track Name: whisper
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

sleepers unite
fuck you wide eyed yawners
see you on the other side
don't be jealous

we will cut your waking wires
you will not see us coming
onward, downward
don't be sad
don't be jealous

onward downward

just let it play
don't think about it
crack and pop
needle to magnet
new age to new age
backwards forwards through

zero to one
ear drum to wiggle bum
sign of the times
dimples and smile lines
what's the secret?
backwards forwards through

just let it play, just let it play

it's forever sound, all around
in everything
forever sound, forever sound

nuclear glow
handsome complexion
better than makeup
that you cant see through
cant wait for robots
to write the catchy tunes

just let it play, just let it play

it's forever sound, all around
in everything
it's never incomplete, it doesn't miss a beat
for anything
years ago, years from now
it's all the same
it's forever sound, forever sound

Track Name: little fear
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

all I want to express
is love, love, only love
why does that have to be so hard?
love, love, only love

counting days till the day
little fears gone away
maybe never maybe today

things will happen as they will
joy will come, joy will come, joy will come
things will happen as they will
service in love, service in love, service in love

counting days till the day
little fears gone away
maybe never maybe today

all I want to express
is love, love only love
why does that have to be so hard?
love love love

Track Name: vulture
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I was reborn as a vulture
looking over your shoulder
with darkness in my eyes
and without an ounce of pity in my heart

come down with a smooth landing

this could all be a dream
a moment of wishful thinking
a flashback to a past life
or the one to come, the one to come

come down with a smooth landing
don't be afraid of nothing

Track Name: poisonous insects
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

poisonous insects
carried me off
to the liquor store
and a giant lineup
I stood there stung

my swollen hands
holding my beer cans
my dizzy head
scared and embarrassed
I lose my breath
and hit the floor

it don't feel the same as I thought it would

lying on the floor and I'm thinking of you

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Track Name: kids
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

in years to come the kids will ask
what the fuck, what the fuck is that?
sober as a nun in church
shrug your shoulders and get back to work
sure there's things we'd like to know
but who's got time for idle thinking woes?
its cut and dry, its black and white
clear as day in the darkest of night

what are you talking about?
can you ever hear yourself?
or has poison work stolen your spirit?
just be thankful that your hearts still beating

memories are pretty short
and history's sung with distorted chords
shifty eyed, unsatisfied
the kids will spit, what the fuck is that?

what are you talking about?
can you ever hear yourself?
or has poison work poisoned your spirit?
just be thankful that your hearts still beating

truth without burden of fact
a decent story is all that we expect

brain stuck on
seriousness
oh poor me
the mess I'm in

fat paycheque
air-conditioning
beautiful girl
everything

quit your lover
quit your job
quit the city
for a while
move back to buttfuck nowhere and
spend time with your relatives

keep it together
no matter what
so much to lose
so much to burn

close your eyes
hold your breath
there's a lot of joy
in a little death

quit your lover
quit your job
quit the city
for a while
move back to buttfuck nowhere and
spend time with your relatives
