Track Name: Burn Your Flags and Come to Heaven
feels so good to be home,
but it feels so bad to be here.
it makes me want to shed tears,
collapse within my own fears.

i get some time to breathe,
but will i? it depends.
sometimes i overextend
but tonight i'll see my friends...

saw her with her stomach out
and i felt like frank ocean.
i was left with so much emotion,
yet devoid of all devotion.

and so i say goodbye
because i have no better way.
i'll save it for today,
so then you'll hear it in some way...
Track Name: Cherry
She is only seen, whenever there’s a
place that could be free, it’s handed to the right.
Everything’s alright.

Coming home from work, it never was a
thing before they left, there never was a chance.
Saved without romance.


Sex with added guilt, there’s never any
way to break it down, just something has to stop.
Hurts without her top.

On the couch she sleeps, it never was a
thing that could be seen, it wasn’t ever there.
Just another scare.
Track Name: Raspberry
Just going to try to hide away
He doesn’t see me anyhow
Am I supposed to know how to feel?
I guess that’s what I’m waiting for.

When I’m getting closer, I don’t
feel so sure about myself, I don’t
have an idea what I’m after, I
just want to get in the door, but you know…


I want him alone with me but I
never thought I could believe so it’s
hard to even see
Just trying not to be

Now it turns to night
And nothing ever feels right
If something isn’t in sight
What will I ever be?


He is coming over now
He caught me staring just enough
I don’t know what I’ll say, I don’t know
anything, I’m not alive

If he says something I know I’ll
mess it up inside my head
I’m scared, this is too real for me
Guess I’m gonna have to try, but you know...
Track Name: Trish
Trish, I’m not scared of you
anymore.
When you sing those songs,
you said

We need to leave
Hide the key
There was a sign
You said

We used to hear
In different ways
Now it’s clear

When we get all the way on our own
When we get tired of having a home


Trish, we’re so sad for you
Such is life
When you sang those songs,
you said

Things that were real
And intact
It was so nice
You said…

Trish, we’ll listen to you
Don’t you see?
When we hear those songs,
You said…

Things we can feel
Such a wave
It feels so nice
You said...
Track Name: Beats-Me Generation
my voice is too weak
Track Name: Sober
Seven, hits like was promised
Like was said would be in soon

But I’ll leave now
Cause I can’t stay
I’ll be bored by the afternoon


Going without
But is it easier to?
I’m just not over it now
It’d just be harder if I’m sober when I’m

Staying at home
Without a reason to live
Except to work and to give
A little glimmer when it’s over and done

Walking around
The neighbors look at me now
I guess I’m too old for this,
A little innocence because of by my

Casual attire
My friends can’t look at me now
I guess I’m without a doubt
A little crazier than when I was


Homebound
In the big-box stores
The fear deep in their eyes

When they go out
And see the news
We're the only ones they’d find

(change at bottom)

Going without
But is it easier to?
I’m just not over it now
It’d just be harder if I’m sober when I’m

Staying at home
Without a reason to live
Except to work and to give
A little glimmer when it’s over and done

Walking around
The neighbors look at me now
I guess I’m too old for this,
A little innocence because of by my

Casual attire
My friends can’t look at me now
I guess I’m without a doubt
A little crazy but I always was
Track Name: New Life Now
on’t go
Into the woods now
Into the fire,

stands a new demon
stands even higher.

Watching the highlights
Hearing the crowd noise

Tell a new story
Tell us something, old boys…


Heroes,
heroes come at you, but
they don’t have an answer.

“Sit in the garden
If you’re such a dancer.”

But fighting is easy,
hearing’s the hard part.

Settle your distance,
then we’ll have a new start.



Say,
You wanna leave now?
You wanna try out.

Just a new thing now
There is some small doubt.

But it’s so clear now
But it’s a calling

It’s a new life now
So why are you stalling?


I am not myself
When I watch the screen.

I don’t want to know
What those racists plead.

I’m an animal,
if not one at heart.

When I watch the punch,
don’t know where to start.

He is just a man,
but is something else.

In my life,
In no light.
Track Name: Body
She has to wait,
She has to wait
for no one

Watching the rain,
Watching the same,
for no one

It’s no fun anymore


Standing
in the backyard
I wait for her

But
There’s a reason
She waits by the door
And it’s not for me


Staying in town,
Are you coming down
For no one?

Drowning today,
Fading away,
for no one

There’s no worth anymore
Track Name: Wally's Spot
You never come to town
With family around
The drinks are here, there is a chance,
you might get back in time, but wait

Know just what to say
When advice comes your way
Don’t pour your feelings out, you’re smarter
than the others, yes, just wait


Naked by the thoughts
Your family’s been taught
They stray to politics, you go to
stay away from everything now

Settle down yourself
It’s better for your health
They’re gonna say what they will say
You’ll never lose your way from them now


You’ll always hear a lot
Down at Wally’s Spot
The food is here, there is a feeling
They’re misleading you, just wait now

The banquet hall’s abound
With older lives around
They drink and talk about the days when
Nothing was much like now
Track Name: Funeralism
All these clouds
Go on by rather fleeting
A reverent nostalgia lingers
Of a childhood spent believing

Oh, would you sit with me now
I have nothing to better to do,
I want to pass the time with you
Because I believe in me and you, it’s true

Careful to admonish you
Without feeling the scorn of it too
Don’t know how I’ll get through
Without the saturday’s hue

Sitting by the lawn
I want to let the rain fall down
I want to walk about my town
I want to let it make me drown

Set to let it go
Just before they're home
Walked around the way
Just for one more day

You don’t have to smoke
Just to know you’ve woke
Sitting by the trees
So much good to see

There’s no need to stay
It’s fine anyway
You won’t be alone
You won’t need the phone

Set to find yourself
Better for your death
Better for the day
Better off this way


--the end--
