Talks 03:25
what's the use in not making sense I could bring you compliments you fell in love with making it work but never asked where the feelings were how could something that means much less bring you so much confidence all the dreams that i want to stay fill me with goals that i can't relate and all that cold from my frozen hate just to bring it back to me then my lips got dry there's no more shaking in my head when i think that life is just a strange repeat of some feelings and i wanna die when i cannot control all my stupid thoughts say i'm wrong about a lot of things now all the traits you got from your mom they don't come out till your all alone talking to a cigarette always so anxious to be having sex and i thought that your waist could seem right from the side of me of course you know i'm wrong about a lot of things now wrong about a lot of things now that you're eternally quiet all seems to move so much faster now to concentrate on calming down i sowed a record to my father's house now can't decide what to write about what's the use in getting upset i ain't seen any problems yet big enough to be moving out we relate to the common house let's celebrate all my frozen doubts if i mean it

Got Along 03:13
how could you know maybe i should move maybe in with you i been checking prices for a bus though i told you once you don't have my love i was young enough to not give a fuck how could you know when you're living alone buried in snow how could you know six years ago there's no joy in my throat when i sing too low when i'm bored my love grows but when we sat on the porch i was scared i thought real love was too much for my minimal hands i thought of calling you upstairs but you slept in my sister's room and went back to manhattan alone now all i wanna do is make plans and touch you with my minimal hands i feel lazy with my song writing so i turn to good vibrations in the summer we should try again and the reasons will be different never to rely on common sense would be perfect

Alchemy 06:00
often times i can not stay asleep if you don't keep the cold off of me all my life i was sure that you would leave if you don't take all my energy all the while you went on tour in the 70's your older bro was in the house smoking weed and when your dad was on the phone with the police he told your mom that you should all be scared of me i come undone at the thought of waking up without anyone often times i can not think of anything when you wear the clothes but you don't know what they mean all your life you've been shown everything you were turning shit into gold alchemy you want a future filled with kids and old and rusted promises you'd rather shed off all your gifts than be the one who is patient you got a closet filled with skins and old and rusted skeletons you take insignificance and cut it out until it's perfect i was the first to open my eyelids you rehearse complaining to Jesus all of the time you thought you were working if you want to i could keep you up all hours talking 'bout who should be filled with love and flowers i got confused i thought it was all for mother though they haunt you i won't be your slave no longer i gotten used to feelings that don't change when you're older i just sat through another boring day in the future in the living room the only way to sleep hungover i thought you knew all the simple ways that matter you say you could use another couple weeks to think it over i get confused i thought you would change much sooner

Ease 04:42
you wanna try new clothes to offset my fading mind all of uses we found for music i thought i'd overflow now all of the changing tones but i think that you sound fine stay on the surface save it for christmas i wanna let it go you're so pissed when the days move slow oh yes of course it's very important you took the power off of my hands just an extension too sick to sleep in you make it easy to live without plans i thought that you would know soon as i had out grown you can clap for your second home all on your own not that you'd ever notice not that you'd ever have kids and it's not when you take my autograph and you spin and coat it that oh i miss this all my feelings that i wanted to just keep in i'm reminded of your calmness fuck the future where's the light end? now i'm so afraid when i travel i leave you too much time to unravel there were thoughts when we were young but we don't talk anymore you thought of God when you were stoned and now he's not anymore

House Pride 06:07
I woke up still drunk on a screened in back porch where i thought of how much i hate thinking about divorce lost in conversation whatever feels like you again then twelve beers later i thought he was gonna cry said "where did all that beauty go while i was doing time?" beauty comes to those who sit beauty left while i was sleeping in we read the future out the palm of your hand you were turned from a monument to a backwoods man and all of the compliments you don't understand left us drunk in a soccer field at 4 a.m. and i wonder if i look like him i woke up still young to a new record label and i thought what i'd done just to make it all tamable in all those compliments i don't understand that left me in a soccer field at your command till two drinks later i left like a father just to act like nothing happens but it does and even in the winter with my eye on the calendar i wonder if i look like him i woke up still strung out from the night before so i watched what i sung for the rest of that tour now we're afraid of what exists we used to belong to churches there's no use in hiding the fact sometimes i get bored when i hate thinking how much i hate thinking of how i'm yours i have not come back down since
