Everything

Where am I
Slowly going?
Tell me why
They’re all knowing

Sink right in
Let it own me
Tell me what
You can show me

All I want
Is to feel
Everything
That is real

Do you know
Where you’re going?
Tell me what
You can show me

They don’t get to be scared for us
we feel it alone while they’re sending out drones again
They don’t get to be there for us
we feel it alone while they’re turning out clones again


Poets

I guess I’m out here on my own
It’s sinking in that I’m alone

Did you hear that thunder roll?
Could you feel it in your bones?

Who’s gonna be the one to hold you
when you’re goin’ outta your head?
Who’s gonna be the one to love you
when you’re written off for dead?

Closing my eyes I’m going back in my mind
I’m going up in my head was it something I said?
Closing my eyes I’m going back to the time
I’m going up to your bed show you poets I’ve read

I heard the day the market crashed
You were calling us the past
It’s shaping up to be a cold winter
What could I do to get you back?


Couple Pills

Can you hear me now? Can you hear at all?
Have you heard the news? They’ve begun to fall

When the hurtin’s done, and I can feel again
I will never let it back in my head

Every time I feel this way I’ll close my eyes recall the day that
Every part of what we’re fighting for was gone. I’ll feel this way no more

I need a couple pills to help me fall asleep
I used to think that strength was not being weak

As long as my heart is beating
I will hold onto this
As long as my heart is beating
Hold onto it


Words For Days

I’ve got an old book says it’s got the words to figure it out if you figure you’re worth something a little more than the world’s been telling you
got you down by the throat while it’s yelling at you
“Get in touch with your T.V. screen, get in line put some money on the latest scene!”
And I’m out here on my own looking for clues on the wrong side of home
I might not have the words when I’m face to face, unlace my lace, cover in mace I’ve got words for days I’m gonna talk till I’m blue gonna figure out something before I’m through. 

Gotta shut down rest assured ‘cause you ain't too sure about what you heard
You’re not a gambling man but you’ll bet when you’re dying
You’re dying to know if you’re doing the right thing

Every now and then it feels like it’s written
Who’s to say it’s over? Who’s to say that it’s done?
And you’re beautiful just the way you are don’t worry about nothing ‘cause you’re gonna get far
And I’m not sure what I’m doing for the summer gonna figure it out while I hit the ground running
Like a speed demon stuck in reverse, can’t see the future ‘cause you figure you’re cursed
And I don’t see why it can’t be good, just figure out the hurt like we said we could
It’s the nicest stretch of weather that we had in years but we’re waiting for the part where the fog it clears maybe see a little better, maybe see it on our own maybe figure out the world, maybe figure where we’re going. 

Gotta shut down rest assured ‘cause you ain't too sure about what you heard
You’re not a gambling man but you’ll bet when you’re dying
You’re dying to know if you’re doing the right thing


Babe Ruth

Follow me out to the pier
Tell what you want me to hear
I can make everything good
I promise to do what I should

Give me their legs and a swing
Mantle (Babe Ruth) got nothing on me
I can make anyone feel
Whatever you want them to feel

There’s no way that I would ever let you down
Hang right on, don’t let go I got you now

Hang on, I got you right now

Feel the American dream
Drip all its guts and esteem
Over your legs in Nepal
Write out our names on the wall


Feel it Too

I can feel it happening to me
Burning like a fire that you need
I could never let it get away
Even if I tried it still would stay

Every way I feel it in my head, my heart, my bones
I’m falling for you – too

Tell me what you want and you believe
I will give you everything you need
Do you know what happens when you know?
Everything you got begins to grow

Hold on a little harder, and you will feel it too


Only One

There’s no way that I could be
What I am without intrigue
Only one

I like it since I have met her
Things have only gotten better
I could never ever let you go

Do you like the way it feels
When the perfect part is real?
I could never ever let you go

When I breathe I open wide
Let the good things come inside
Only one


Hot Jupiter

No matter what
I want you to feel loved


On Paper

Cold, old reasons, and the new change of seasons
There’s a few that I’d rather leave alone to the safety of my mind
Mind you, know you can’t read it
Read it, I’ll give you clues
One: nothing is the way that I thought it would be
Two: different people tell me to change. 
I’m living with a white noise taking all the wrong choices away

On paper I’d remember your birthday
On paper I would
On paper I’d remember your birthday
On paper I should

Here’s why everyone has a reason to grow

Scan through pages of a list of to-do’s
Far from done
Turn pages where you wished you had just
Turned to run

‘Cause I’m running with a white noise
Making all the wrong sounds seem to disappear

On paper I’d remember your birthday
On paper I would
On paper I’d remember your birthday
On paper I should


More

If I die here, take my organs
Find a robot, safely store them

When I close my eyes
I see something more

Teach him recall, give him memory
Let him go on, from my ending


The Good News

I wanna fight the good fight, I wanna end the war
I wanna be the good news arriving at your door

Let’s feel it the real world, fuck the digital
Take it as it’s comin’, I swear it’s better girl

I wish I could do techno so I could watch you move
All I got are lyrics and the hope they’re close to truth

I’ll try to make a bad day better with my words
I wanna be the good news, the best you’ve ever heard

I wanna be the sunrise bringing on the day
I wanna be the good news that never goes away

I wanna be a story, the one you need to tell
I wanna be the good news, the words you’d never sell

I don’t wanna let you
Fall apart alone

I wanna be a clear sky telling you it’s fine
I wanna be the good news that Lets you come alive
