Track Name: Indifferent World
So, under overcrowded cemetary lights
a friend of mine
told
me about the way the season's gonna end
and I said
to my Indifferent World
I am of you, and together we're alone
you are my home
my only home...

My friend, if only free
from the thought of every pig upon the feed
an endless need
to see
every Rorschach shadow etched into the screen
I would like
to find a different world
full of endless meaning, opium and light
to end the fight...
Track Name: Life At One Twenty Two
I'll pretend to see again
when everyone gets out, and so do I
it may be daunting, but I'll take what I can find

her sadness, different than mine
her love, the same as mine
Track Name: Television Eyes
Television
eyes that look around
and they say hello to my head
you will never be alone
they will hear the words you said
holy, purely, randomly
we were brought together by design
specter, every passing cause
is a shadow on the mind

love is like a word

I might sing in semitone
try to let you in on things unsaid
if I wasn't far away
I would fall into your bed
If I wasn't far away
I would fall into your bed

Love is like a word
Love is like a picture
Track Name: Red Alarm
Take me away
but not removed from the trappings
I think at time of a simple uprooting
otherwise, I'm just moss on a rock

tell me now,
tell me,
red alarm, ticking arms
tell me
is this the place?
is this the traffic?
is something waiting
in the attic?

I'm in love, I'm innocent
I'd be worse if this life never ended
I am drinking from a well overflowing
'till it stops, I'm just moss on a rock

tell me now,
tell me,
red alarm, ticking arms
tell me
is this the place?
is this the traffic?
is something waiting
in the attic?
Track Name: Far
I have thought about a place
it has room to lay my head
I forgot if I've been there
and I think it's far away
I was sorry for my tone
it's because I didn't know
what to do with my long day
and it snowed again today

take your time,
forget the book
it will all come cycling back
don't be so holy now
I can't wait to see it now

I don't need to talk I can just think about and act upon the thought it is an open letter sometimes I play pretend
Track Name: Day Alone
[Instruental]
Track Name: Radish
I went out to take a breath, and there it was below me
I went out to take a breath, and there it was below me

Then I took it from the ground
Then I took it from the ground

Picked it up, in my palm
turned it over in my finger
a Radish

I stand waiting and look around
I reflect on it when I'm all alone now

If I sit too long I'll freeze
you cannot drown if you become the sea
I am waiting for a chance to be
Track Name: Benthos
I wake up to the warmth of the sun
my walls are on fire, the sermon has begun
to a point, I was under a fog
I notice this fading, I'm afraid of what I saw

I don't know, that's the way I feel now
I'd expect if to vacate me now

Is it two, or only one at the start?
I'm talking it over, she is flying in a car
I am here, all alone, facing three
big windows looking out, to nothing over me

I don't know, I'd expect it to be different,
I don't know, it's your love i've been missing
I don't know, that's the way I feel now
I don't know, that's the way I feel now
Track Name: Imaginary Resource
Imaginary resource, come again
when sunlight is tearing at your home
some nights, I sigh for my own
It won't be long
It won't be long, till you're gone,
it won't be long
'Till you're on your own
Till you're on your own,
it won't be long
For me, it counts somewhat
but for you, it counts a lot
Track Name: Under The East River
I am under the weight of
every vessel that holds me
carry me to the excess now

Even if I can't go faster than my mind allows,
Even if I can't go faster than my mind allows,

I am sitting in traffic
underneath the East River
looking for the great equalizer
holy taker, and the giver

even if I can't go faster than my mind allows...
