Track Name: Bleeding Heart
Dont tell me something just fluttered
dont be to clever you might pop your head
print it godamit print it out!
running out of things to erase over there!

Its just your bleeing heart
thats all
no need to write home boy
its just your bleeding heart
thats all
nothing to write home for

Precious or meaningless
I cant decide just yet
what was I going on about?
I swear someday I'll print it
all out for us yeah.
Question marks exclaimation points
question marks!

Its just your bleeding heart
thats all
no need to write home boy
don't take a punch in the face
for the sake of art
nothing to write home for

Dont tell me something in stutters
no one is so clever they could pop your head
print it godamit print it out!
running out of things to erase over here!
Track Name: Knitting Party
Caught you listening
are your blinders on?
its not me thats leading you on.
just a short break
from your healthy long life
yea right we're here then gone.
waiting for your break
somebody else to sign on? oh well.
you decide, love.
if it's right or wrong.

hasn't been a cloud here in weeks on end
one more kiss before we set out to sea again
I promise you that I wont go back to sleep
and better of alone is a lie i think
unless you're on the brink.

Did you forget?
how the night is long.
has a way of carrying on
even after all our sense is gone
by the wayside where we fell off.
you can drive me home
if you promise that you'll stay till dawn.
i wont bite you, less you turn me on.

caught you listening , are you blinders on?
Track Name: Swimmer
I never knew you were such a good swimmer
took my hand and stopped me from sinking
and that ship on the distant horizon
keeps us floating and fighting.
stare at anything for too long, you'll see everything wrong
but I'll remember your face.

They'll never replace what we started to prove
but I never wanted any power over you
the time and the place wasn't wrong we were true.
but i never wanted any power over you

I never knew I was such a good liar
you took my words and stopped them from spinning
and some ship on the distant horizon
still keeping us floating, fucking and fighting.
you stare at anyone for too long, you'll see everyone wrong
but I'll remember your face

They'll never erase what we started to prove
but I never wanted any power over you
the time and the place wasn't wrong we were true
but I never wanted any power over you

not over you
not over you
over you

stare at anything for too long, you'll see everything wrong.
I'll remember your face.
Track Name: Dont Wait
Cant seem to find a way to tell you what I want
maybe I'm not too sure just what I need
give the lovin' when it comes to shovin'
but the push I don't understand
seems I'm taught to base this love on greed

but don't wait for me
I'll be gone before I'm free
don't wait for me
I'll be gone before You're free

Cant seem to find a way to tell me what you want
maybe you're not to sure what you need
you give the lovin' when it comes to shovin'
but the push you don't understand.
seems you're taught to base it all on greed.

but don't wait for me
I'll be gone before I'm free
don't wait for me
I'll be gone before you're free

and we wait in lineups
just so we can sign up
for the things we don't want.
Track Name: About Time
I don't care what you think about my friends anymore.
and I don't know what you know about feeling alright.

Cus all the leaves are hitting the ground again.
All your friends are leaving your head again.
It's a bubble inside of a bubble, my friend.
You're bound to pop your own world in the end.

But it's about time for me to be leaving.
Ain't it about time to stop repeating?
Ain't it about time?

You're the last one, the last one
repeating , this defeated style of life.

Spring Break.
Track Name: End is Alright
There's nothing special about where you're gonna go
it's just the end and that's alright
end and that's alright
It's no more special back where you came from
it's just the end and that's alright
end and that's alright

fill your head up with what they think they know
for sure!
kill all the infidels and shine up the church bells
one more time, yeah!

there's nothing left to do but cut you down to size
cus I know that you won't leave anything behind
said you never meant to pull the wool over our eyes
but I know that you won't leave anything behind
Track Name: Ugly Rich Girls
everybody knows!
I'm just another one of their little hoes
advertising the prize at the side of the road
and waiting for somebody I don't love to take me home

but I swear baby that I tried
ain't missed a meal in my life
why should I care if you understand me?
but you got your situation too,
just it don't make me feel so blue
nobody said it's easy,
better try a little harder

Yea everybody knows!
I'm just another one of their little drones
selling pieces of the sky at the side of the road.
and waiting for somebody I don't love to take me home

Well I swear baby that I tried
ain't missed a meal in my life
why should I care if you understand me?
but you got your situation too,
just it don't make me feel so blue
nobody said it's easy,
better try a little harder
Track Name: Mile Away
I know it's in there, been all along.
might never happen that don't make it wrong.
it's more than glue for a broken song.
I can smell my own kind a mile away.

A shitty digital photograph,
an old t-shirt, a forgotten track.
it's hid for now, but you'll take it back.
I can smell my own kind a mile away.

You keep me from dividing,
push me off undecidedness,
there's no need for rewinding,
so thank God this hasn't happened yet.

Push your children out thru the door,
forget protecting them it's what they are for.
Beautiful filters like we all are.
I can smell my own kind a mile away,
Track Name: Friends and Lovers
Count all your lovers, no fingers left over to point.
You ain't been sleeping since they said that you missed the point.
But never think that you were wrong,
in trying again.
Despite your tired eyes, trying again.
Beyond the whens and whys, try on my friend.

Come on, Come on!
Isn't there something worth saving here?
Come on, Come on!
We don't have to lie to the end of us!

So count all your lovers, no hearts are left over to break,
you've been doing all the giving
and learning how they like to take.
But never think that you were wrong, in trying again.
Despite your tired eyes, trying again.
Beyond the whens and whys, try on my friend.

Come on, Come on!
Isn't there something worth saving here?
Come on, Come on!
We don't have to lie to the end of us!

Friends and lovers are bleeding your colors!
Friends and lovers are bleeding your colors!
