Track Name: GUARD RAIL
Driving down the freeway following the line
Just a couple of hours before sunrise
$80 ain’t enough to make it right
when i was counting on you
I never counted everything that I couldn’t do

I am focused like reflective dotted marks
Merging into one big highlight in the dark
Floating over every break in the ground
Let the cold air through, windows cracked so i never slip away into you

Tires burn my nose so I wake up
Take-out packages stain the floor
Watching cigarettes blow away
I can’t tell whether or not I’m in the car

You can’t see all my loving
You can’t see
You can’t see all my loving
You can’t see

I heard a story tonight about oregon
On the news while i was heading to a job
They’re recalling all the guardrails on the road
Because they’ll slice you in two
How come nothing ever stops when you want it to

I want see it fall if I wake up
Stand on a treetop and watch it go
Car doors outspread like a dove
Engine burns into a halo

You can’t see all my loving
You can’t see
You can’t see all my loving
You can’t see

You can’t see
Track Name: YEAR AND THIRTEEN DAYS
I can't help if i'm the first to fall in love
and i can't help if I'm the last to know your name

I can't stop myself from wondering how you'd taste
I can't stop myself from picking through the words in your book
You think it's a game?
You killed me with a single good look

It hurts to know where you're goin'
Seconds crawl, you're far too quiet
So respond cause I'm tired of waiting for you

I'm fucked up cause I can never let you go, girl
You fucked up when you shut and locked the door, girl
You might be gone
I might be caught
But when the year and 13 weeks is through
I’ll be waiting for you

It hurts to know where you're goin'
Seconds crawl, you're far too quiet
So respond cause I'm tired of waiting for you
It hurts to know that you're not watching
Chemicals could break the silence
So come on cause I'm wired and waiting for you
Track Name: NEW CAVES
This is the glass in your life that I can’t fill
Stepped on crack a few times, that won’t ever seal
So let it break
Dont try to catch everything dropped on you
How much water will it take
To saturate everything tangled in these parched black roots?

Talking the same way so carefully
Clenching a fist underneath the sleeve, stop these words from
Falling through the air in front of me
Walk the same speed just for one more day
I can’t separate the new from what i’ve never known

I’ll run away until
Dark footprints trace around the earth back to my love
Find us new caves to explore
Can’t keep this pace without you without you

One day we’ll wake up and be free
Unbreakable coils around our feet
(Can it wait?)
Counting hours from the winter to the summer
( Can we make it out?)
Whittle down every tree that blocks the light
Closing every window so we'll never how to worry while we're here

I'll run away until
Dark footprints trace around the earth back to my love
Find us new caves to explore
Can’t keep this pace without you without you
Track Name: RED WIRE
Hey, i feel like myself
But i know i'm older
Take care not to wilt
Fall to the concrete and
Break this unnatural doubt
Like a lump in my lung could
Build and snuff it all out
I'll still be counting the days


Take the blade
Soft from the fire of
Back pain
Cut the red wire
To college days

Hey, what the fuck do i know
I might be jaded
Cut the sentiment out
And lie to myself til i
Taste the blood in my mouth
Sweeter than water
Fade, and swallow it down
I might be wasting away


Take the blade
Soft from the fire of
Back pain
Cut the red wire
To college days
Track Name: GOLD CLOTHES
When you’re grown
I don’t expect you’ll be
Still running away
To new cities

In those gold
Spray painted go out clothes
With tiny fractures
Cutting through your arms and knees

Shed some light
Through this morning fog
One more time
I know you think I’m drowning out a song we should remember
And ever beat I’m stepping through is everything you’ll ever need

Broke
Fresh cracks in your steel frame
Survive down every exploded street
And I know that you won’t get too comfortable
Til you feel like death is tapping on your starry screen

Shed some light
Through this morning fog
One more time
I know you think I’m drowning out a song we should remember
And ever beat I’m stepping through is everything you’ll ask me

Kill the light
Let this morning fall
One more time
I know you think I’m counting down with only simple numbers
And everything I calculate can only ever add to you
Track Name: HALF THE CIRCLE
He saves time drawing half the circle
Makes lines
Reflects the side
He pastes that onto a blank concrete wall
And hits multiply

He makes peace with parts from multiple views
Checks the size
And hits align
Picks out the perfect font we should use
Every time
It's a problem I find they pass it

Back and Forth
Hurry up and Wait
It's a process of
Elimination

And I know
She watches out for noise
That can bleed into hair
And this kid
Will never disappear
Under the lights
It's a problem I find
They pass it

Back and Forth
Hurry up and Wait
It's a process of
Elimination

Give us something we've never seen before
Something like that thing you did before

An orphan child of indeterminate race
Makes friends with a quirky family of raccoons
And inadvertently saves the environment

There's just one thing I would change
Can you make the animal an animal we'd save?

Back and Forth
Hurry up and Wait
It's a process of
Elimination
Track Name: BEACHED
The sun goes down
I’m waking up
The tide is low so we can walk where we used to swim
The moon is out, but your like a beached sea star
Crack every time that we move

Wait
Wait
Don’t
Break
Break oh oh
Don't hide your eyes so soon

We dip our toes
Into the inch of life below
This shallow place
Shrinks away
And I don't know
How long those silver fish can go
Left behind
Flopping from side to side

Wait
Wait
Don’t
Break
Break oh oh
Dont hide your eyes so soon

It’s like a life without sun
I’m sure that we would only get colder
It’s like that time you hung up
I keep repeating it over and over again
I cut the circuits all around
Shut all the correspondence down only you can
Sync all the images with sound
And burn the edit to the ground only you can
