Track Name: Rain Beats Down
RAIN BEATS DOWN
It was nocturnal the year it started.
She woke up early, standing still.
Watch the garden, the mist is ragged.
You shift your gaze, you look to see.

Dressing quickly, tongue touching cheek.
She’s walking fast, up the path.
A huge bright spider walks cross her feet.
Eyes open wide, the rain has started.
(repeat from top)

The rain is pelting, pouring, flushing, stinging.
Sky opens wider, you wash your hands.
Your thoughts are frozen, you think you see her.
In a shiny flashing, you know her name.
Heels clicking, clicking, she’s gaining speed.
But the rain stays with you, and her hair is dry.
Your chin juts forward, your heels sink downward.
You glance behind you, the garden’s drowning.

Drown
Drowning
Track Name: I Have This Feeling
I HAVE THIS FEELING
Huge bright spider
Change your name
But the bite is still the name
Capture, prey, air, breathing, birds, lizards, silk, spinning (repeat)
I have this feeling that if you get closer
I might think you are very small.
I might get worried that you are very small.
I have this feeling that if you get closer
I might think you are very small.
Like a fly on my eyelashes.
I might get worried that you are very small.
Then I would capture you
And take you
Outside
Track Name: I Watch You Inhale
I WATCH YOU INHALE
Looking up, looking up (repeat)

Your heart hard to forget (repeat)

I watch you inhale, I watch you inhale, I know you will, I know you will, I watch you inhale, I watch you inhale, I know you. (repeat)

You twist your ear, I know you pretty well, you twist your ear, I know you pretty well, you twist your ear, I know you pretty well, you twist your ear.

Clinking sound rocks in glasses, clinking sound rocks in glasses, clinking sound rocks in glasses, clinking sound, sound, rocks, I know you well.

Your words are hard to forget, especially when a hundred letters read
Your face is hard to forget, especially when a thousand photos sent
(repeat)

Your heart is hard to forget (repeat 4x)

You twist your ear…(repeat above)
Track Name: Cupcake
CUPCAKE
There is something that is really important that you do right now.
There is something that is really, really important that you do for me right now.
If you could just do this very important one thing for me right now, I will be extremely happy – In the future.

And the next time I see you I will really, really, really like you
A lot more than I like you right now.
If you can just do this one little thing for me.
It has to be perfect and if it’s perfect then I can tell you straight up
I will really, really, really like you a lot more than I do at this moment in time.

I will take you out for cupcakes
And you can have the bigger cupcake
When normally, I want you to have the smaller version of that sweet thing.
But listen. Listen, because I’ve been asking you for a long time now
I’ve been asking you the same question in a lot of different ways and so far
We haven't had a small agreement
What do you think, we’re getting closer.

Just look at me, don’t look me in the eyes but look at me anywhere else
Look down
Look at my chin
Track Name: Headlights
HEADLIGHTS
Headlights, so bright (repeat 8x)
I’m in the backseat, close my eyes
You drive too bright. I ask why
Do you feel like a machine?
Have you heard anything from her, at all?

One more day on this white page
The ship and wake on open space
(repeat)

Headlights, so bright (repeat 8x)

Do you feel like a machine?
Have you heard anything from her, at all?

One more day on this white page
The ship and wake on open space
(repeat)

Headlights, so bright (repeat 4x)
Track Name: Sad City
Forget your name.
There are no names.
This is a never-ending stream of winding tales pushing into ruined buildings.
Broken hearts.
Drink the warm story waters and you’re starting to steam.
Complicating the mix.
And brewing trouble.

Black smoke, broken hearts, even though the skies are blue
North of night and heart of blue, brewing under sea of you.
Standing by a mournful sea a never-ending stream of trouble (repeat)
My smoky sadness is starting to steam.

I have forgotten your name.
You have forgotten my name.
You have forgotten your name.
I have forgotten my name.

Ah ah….
Track Name: Shining Night
fingers clasp
hands draw near
hearts all whole
shadows clear
this shining night
made shadows bright
hands drawing near
complete the sphere
complete the sphere
hands draw near
complete the sphere
half moons
perfect circles
shadows holding back spheres
this shining night
made shadows bright
hands draw near
complete the sphere
hearts all whole (repeat 3x)
this shining night
made shadows bright
fingers clasp
hands draw near
hearts all whole
shadows clear
complete the sphere
