Track Name: Let's Do Our Best
sights right on the big night
blank stare for the blank page
yes
let's see your dress cover the stains on the carpet

would you say that to anybody
what you're saying to me
do you listen to anybody
would you answer to me

let's do our best
do your best
Track Name: The Ever-Expanding Balloon
looks like your light is inflatable
sometimes i see you shining where you'd never go
i'm wondering who's been blowing you up

looks like this time is replaceable
all night i'm putting pictures where your head should go
you know i'm putting stitches where i left my own open and all for you

i wanted to be now
i wanted to be everything

looks like these words are interchangeable:
alright
no good
known
misunderstood
i'm wondering who's been shaking it up

looks like i left myself in pieces
now i'll be everywhere at once
and i keep blowing them all back up
a little more of everything
Track Name: Cyclical Pickle
who's that walking like a bicycle
you got head spinning under your feet
left / right looking nice
symmetrical
got me calling the birds and the bees
now tell me what you see
show me who you are
touch me underneath
barricades and bars
figure eights in cars

i'll never let you know where the road goes

who's that walking like a bicycle
you got your head spinning under your feet
left / right looking like a miracle
got me wishing we all weren't so weak
now tell me what you see
show me who you are
touch me underneath
barricades and bars
take me to the sea
love me under stars
bring me to my knees
it's never going to stop
figure eight
push to lock

now i'll never let you
Track Name: For Real
i want to feel my feet in the sand and go slowly down the road
i want to lock my lips like a clap and keep every word i'm told

invitation
here's your invitation
invitation to the only show i hear in stereo
two reels at once
for real for once

i want to feel at ease as a strand in the only home i know
i want to sink my teeth in the big black mass and feel broken as a whole

meditation on the only show i hear in stereo
two reels at once
for real for once

slowly down the road we are spun
two reels become one
Track Name: Exist
your ride is waiting
build like a fraudulent pyramid
intimidating and full of shit

my time is changing
shaped like a cyclone closing in
eviscerating and full of wind

exits exist
stop resisting

let's go to nowhere close
let's catch some waves
let's find the last ride home and dress it in flames
Track Name: We Have Come of Age
we've come of age
kind of like a dancer dances
we'd come a lot more under some circumstances
i was saved by a man with strong advances
and jump at every chance to see where your friend's hand is
excuse me please for being so candid

never whittle away what starts to burn
let's take our turns

i'm a seesaw
i'm a merry-go-round
spinning
moving up
now i'm only fading out
crushed by the weight of a ten-ton machine
never get a chance to break a little girl's teeth

never whittle away what starts to burn
watch me turn

i'll never love anyone so openly
i'll never love anyone
watch me burn

we've come of age
kind of like a cancer advances
we'd come a lot more under some circumstances
Track Name: Very Limited
it glows
she says
kaleidoscope
a carrot nose
she says
only eight payments and it goes
she says
straight to your home for you and me
tonight i'll find myself a dream

it works
he says
stores memories and then converts
he says
flash of light
it's five in one
he says
prints a picture of you and me
tonight i'll find myself a dream

it's mine
they say
hard to find
one of a kind
they say
never set fire
never die
they say
shed some light on you and me
tonight i'll find myself a dream
Track Name: In Flux
set it all unto me
give it a spell to settle
rub it against your mettle
have it all
we want to give you what you want
set it all into me
give me the hell the devil pedals for you to nestle
i'll suffer it all
i'll suffer it slowly and wholly
freely and deeper
and feel me
come feel me
take me and heal me and

give me all your love
give me all your money, love
give me all your money

baby, the red light is green
baby, the blackbird is calling
baby, this blue is so sprawling
are they going to come here
are they going to find us
sing with me
Track Name: Who We Are
baby made a motion just for me
granted me the ocean on a leave
sometimes i try to find my way back to your light
that's who we are
sometimes i try to find my way back to our old life because...
you know me
that's who we are
Track Name: Pool Party
face me
i don't want to talk about it
i don't want to know
i just want a kiss
space
i just want to float around it
i don't want to go in your swimming pool
it's ordinary
it's so hard to see when that just let me look
into the waste
one day i'll choke on it
one day i'll go where we belong
it's growing in me
it's so hard to crush when they just let me touch

don't let me in
i'll never go
don't you know
now you know
