Track Name: Tremer
This morning I woke up before the sun rays
To catch the worm of the lackadaisy day
Most people get home at five and don't know what to do with themselves
Solar panels and a swimming pool
So get out while you can kid
While no one depends on you
Keep you head in the sand dune
Every first and fifteenth I receive my salary pay
Sometimes I laugh all the way to the bank
And if I stand to subtle I wither so I gotta keep moving
Tending to the health of the lawn
Tearing up the dust in the garden off and on

Track Name: Nothing's Changed (but She Still Wants Me)
Once again I hear you say
Nothing's changed but she still wants me
Old stagnation, same old game
Take your places on the old porch swing

Sometimes it feels like your holding on to a far gone cause
Sometimes you forget that its always worth it

A heart that loves will always try
To win back its love
And two lovers will always try
To deserve each other

So ask not whether you deserve her
One way or the other you should already know

Try your best to meet her needs
Love isn't free but it seems you can always afford it
Track Name: The Gay Science
Concentrate and cut away
The days when you weren't yourself
We go to sleep softly
Reminding ourselves to set a time
Track Name: Midas
The way it goes
Im never certain
And after all
How could you be sure
In love

Secret ears (hid under the hair)
Bleached in the sink
You confide (in the water, in the water, in the lake)
Now it grows wild (like golden grass)
Get off my lawn
Track Name: Grey on Grey
Where will you take me by first light?
These three days have worn on me
With hardly a whisper you wooed me
and sold me the old road
And why does your silence always say
That grey on grey on grey
Makes black some day
// // // // // // // // //
And when I'm too far out I'll find out
That the old house is the dog house
Track Name: First Impressions
your black hair
still seems lighter to me
first impressions
maybe 30 seconds
still live in me
clearer than water
Track Name: If We Had It Our Way
If we had it our way
Things wouldn't be quite like this at all would they
I'll come to terms with it will you
Can you imagine
That every action is random and causal
Shouldn't it be beautiful to think
That every atom is explainable
Every thought is identical
But somehow it sits wrong in my gut

It's unimaginable
How most things work out like a charm
Strictly unremarkable, strictly disappointing.

I try to stay in control of myself
When the ship's already out
How I maintain myself in such a weird mood I don't know

Sometimes I feel so predictable
Sometimes I feel so predictable
Sometimes I feel like I'm so predictable
Track Name: Soft Slopes
As of today
The clock hangs
As of...

I find nature silent.
Track Name: Discontinuous
Discontinuous,
Visceral,
These moments,
Chosen, each one, in their turn.
Each one,
These moments,
Each one,
Visceral.

Living in narrative we created
Meaningless.
I accept
Magical, absurd, benevolence,
Connect the inseparable
Observer, creator
I wish for no more.
Track Name: Midas Return
(the way it goes) (hid under the hair)

Bleached in the sink

(and after all)
You confide
(in the water, in the water, in the lake)

Then it grows wild (like golden grass)
