jealousy,
will help me get my way.
jealousy,
make sure I get my way.

soft green shade
when dark hits, I'll wear no coat.

it's too hot to be trapped inside that dress, love.
it's too hot to be trapped inside that dress.

why don't you jump out?
why don't you crawl out?
why don't you pull out?
why don't you slip out?

it's too hot to be trapped inside that dress, love.
it's too hot to be, trapped inside that dress.

why don't you jump out?
why don't you crawl out?
why don't you pull out?
why don't you slip out?

we are young.
we are young.
we are young.
we are young,
but smart enough to leave no fantasies abandoned
we're smart enough to leave no fantasies
a
ban
doned.

soft green shade
when dark hits, I'll wear no coat.
Track Name: Yeah!? What's It Tuba!?
there's nothing left to gain
except efficiency.

there's nothing left to say
because we can't create.
Track Name: Untitled #6
I remember when the water here was cold.
now it's real warm when I'm tired,
staggered,
old.
these old limbs, they aren't cut out for work anymore.
so I'll claw at my bones until they work again.

I remember when the water here was cold.
now it's real warm when I'm tired,
staggered,
old.
if I were you I'd be head deep in blue.
youthful, naive you.

you get your way.

(waves won't keep my company like you did when we were young.)
Track Name: Bernie Mac Attack
words are too slow,
we've gotta talk with our bodies.
words are too slow,
we've gotta talk with our bodies.
words are too slow,
we've gotta talk with our bodies.

words are too slow,
so let's talk with our bodies.
Track Name: Untitled #3
I stood as a two hundred year old tree trunk,
my roots firm and deep.
the Sun bled through the cracks in the leaves,
dying my skin.
my tender arms could not bear repentance.
smug and resilient,

I started screaming,
"green, my love, you won't shape me!"
Track Name: The Apocalypse Made Me Brave
liberation kept me from my faith, my dear lord.
the wings you gave me kept me from walkin' through doors, my lord.
why do my prayers go unanswered?
oh, my dear lord?
momma didn't deserve what you gave her, my lord.

now let's pretend we're not sinful, tempted ones.
if only God gave us a little more time,
then we'd find out he wasn't there at all.

our sins are purged.
Track Name: Untitled #5
I tried to catch you counting the cracks in my lips when I sneezed, but God kept my eyes shut.
we sat, watching our emotions turn into physical traits;
your teeth grew straight and my eyes turned back.
You would toss and moan loudly at night, but I liked you that way.
I would wake up and make sure your eyes were closed. You never caught me. Not even once.
