Track Name: basement map
winter's end
Track Name: it snowed last summer
laundry room darkened now i'm safe
behind couches
beckon me we'll stray
**
held the rod of iron (for swimming pools)
thumb in middle eyes read (transparent toooo)
what you thought you wanted (you waited)
festivals forsaken (i swear to god)
we'll take our favorite potion (at the milk bar)
what was that you hoped for? (i'm hopeful)
**
misty cliffed highways help us find
our brothers
weren't we somewhat kind?
**
leftover Liahona (in death valley)
leftover memorabilia (maybe we'll see)
in some past attic (you imagined)
full of tapes and paintings (and ghost stories)
maps of constellations (and fog machines)
forget about replacements (you're staying)
Track Name: more than science
loved ones are prettier than science
maybe as pretty as mathematics
loved ones tell you how the time's spent
show you how much you meant
help you on your way

but we never really get that far
we're really not that far
no matter where you are
you're really not that far
never get too far
maybe we've gone too far

look at me i'm falling

we played pool inside your basement
decked out in our dusty raiment
we stayed up until the aye em
listened to the freaking pavement
and made taquitos

but we never really get that far
we're really not that far
no matter where you are
you're really not that far
never get too far
maybe we've gone too far

look at me i'm falling
Track Name: bitter
confused global eyes
does she know does she know
when we tell her that we love her
we could never lie
Track Name: skylight
ooh ooh pop song ooh ooh love love ooh oooh
Track Name: some kids you knew
when i got home i noticed people
with arms and legs and teeth shaped like church steeples
and in some backwoods by a bike path
you smirked and yelled and i don't think i like that

when i got home i notice creatures
with rich toned colors and entrancing features
when i got home i was excited
by your glowing presence i simply couldn't hide it

and so i go in dark wordless places
empty spaces to fill
and i'll fail to transmit these motions
but thank god that it's real

when i got home i noticed you were
donning a smile that felt so much truer
and in the car we claimed the backseat
wet cold wind and never been so happy

as i walked in i heard you lying
about some things you did when you were 19
as i walked out i heard you crying
about some kids you knew when you were 9
and

i would like to know the places they went
i would like to know their names
i would like to peel the hard shell draping
across our bodies
every day
Track Name: wet leaves
u eff me up
Track Name: what's for dinner
what's for dinna?
Track Name: 78 inches
you're taking new steps
to eat better breakfasts
and take kids to the pool

searching a while
for posters of michael
jordan for your walls
78 inches tall

and you think that's pretty tall
and you think that's pretty tall

down in the kitchen
i'm chillin with mission-
-ary brother steve
with him Zelda beat

and we're placing new bets
to see if we're reckless
enough to leave
for sticky evergreens

and i think that's pretty far
and i think that's pretty far
zelda was pretty hard
and i think that's pretty
and i think you're pretty
and i think that's pretty far
Track Name: quorum
yeah we know your friend she's a lot like tyler
won't look you in the eye speaking in soft murmurs
while we're walking home she steps in the puddles
rainbow oil swirls sensations muddle
Track Name: marshmallow
"oooh ooh pop song love song ooh yeah baby love ooh ooh"
Track Name: walking's half the fun
under your eyes
beneath your eyelids
its orange to green
ghost of an image

stencil the scent
20 months old
some good advice
to "sweat and smile"

a frostbitten ember
Track Name: like i did so long ago
like i did so long ago
Track Name: party dresses
summer's new dress swirling
at the neighbor's party
pick a four leaf clover
can we talk it over honey?

floral lawnchair steaming
with that lemonade steam
calling "hey red rover"
can we talk it
oh oh oh oh

cleaning up
after the disco
watching your fists go skyward
like Chartres cathedral

breaking off
piece of chocolate nougat
brush a bit off that new sundress
say
"i never really try"

soapy bubble bath with a drink
paperback of Mallarme
gonna dream it over
gonna read and wait to meet you

pink losange against your cheek
radiates as you speak
i think you're cute, moreover
picked a four leaf clover

open up
pinecone umbrella
coolin in penumbra
honey
a warm and cloudless sky

breaking down
the striped canopy
tossing up all kinds of phrases like
"i never really try"

cleaning up
after the disco
watching your fists go skyward
like Chartres cathedral

breaking off
piece of chocolate nougat
brush a bit off that new sundress
say
"i never really try"
Track Name: i'll be your sunshine, baby
we're chatting online
"ill c u at 9"
"ill be ur sunshine baby"
we talk on the phone
about ancient Rome
"ill be your senator baby"


"wish i was a 6 year old girl
staying home with my mom while my dad's at work
wish i was a 16 year old boy
staying home with my baby"

warm socks on my feet
zelda gonna beat (i'm gonna beat zelda)
with you, my sunshine baby
with cheese and some wine
tea and madeilines
i'll be your memory baby

wish i was an 8 year old girl
playing with all my beautiful toys
wish i was a hottie from cali
then you'd be my baby
my baby
_______

wish i was a 40 year old man
working for freaking IBM
wish i was a model from paris
then you'd be my baby
my baby

je pense que tu es
la plus belle bebe
tu es mon soleil, bebe
Track Name: where you are
where you are
and what you were
