Track Name: Can't Stand New Starters
inequality
what it means to me
it's a prison i can fuck

in a place with no discretion
i'll be back, upon the westing wind
with nowhere to begin

but when love came to me
unexpectedly
and it just took its wings and flew

i tried so hard to shoot that bird
but encumbered, by its beauty
i just stared
and tried not to believe...

...that i can't stand it
you know i planned it all
so i'll face my time

i can't stand it
you know i planned it all
so i'll face my crime

...but in the Time of Doubt
it seems the body can
provide the act of love

to run away from future pains
and vision
yeah, you cannot feel
with no one to reveal

...but in the day we had
in a field of stone
to pluck your petals slow...

i wish i could just live in that
oh the beauty
not this pain of being real
The Lovers' Ideal

but i can't stand it
you know i planned it all
so i'll face my crime

i can't stand it
you know i planned it all
so i'll face my time
Track Name: Song For Steven
within the eye
Comstock to recognize
from the processed dream
to distribute the obscene

but with your Roman face
and your tears of cobalt blue
there and back again
from the trees, the moss, and dew

....but when I saw you there
with your long black wavy hair
striking to defend
within my eyes again....

pray impermanence
and parking lot respect
from the bar room fight
to there and back again

when we deal with brutes
we deal with tattered flags
and when we trade in blood
we rap our fists in rags

....but when I saw you there
with your long black wavy hair
striking to defend
within my slag again....
Track Name: Chrome Love
sitting on the edge
it seemed so hard to do
'til i met you
'til i met you

but i can't apologize
for the way i feel
if you tell me that you felt it too
well yeah, then we now the deal

but it's a world of reinforcement
so i'll refuse what I can
it's a world of sad displacement
i'll refuse everything

like a cup in the rain
comes the smell of metal shame
but if the feeling's real
then the feeling's real

but i can't apologize
for what we did today
if the rose sticks
to the body
we can softly say

...that it's a world of reinforcement
so i'll refuse what I can
it's a world of sad displacement
i'll refuse everything
Track Name: Lake Forest Blues (The Snipers)
moving back to lake forest
with the architect
and the silver piece
to have or to be alone
there's no happiness
in a barricaded zone

now we can't think to give
we have everything you want
which is everything you need

the piece
that you have designed
for telling the life of you
it is now a violent eclipse
that splits the floor in two

falling back to strange again
unknowing him, i must keep this trap
a way that she can't figure out
the running stance and the scoped distance

now we can't think to shoot
there's nothing we can do
to stop these blistered blues

the piece
that you have designed
for telling the life
of you
it is now
a violent eclipse
that splits the floor in two
Track Name: Suck Moon Valley
gardening through suck moon hasn't been the best
i know you'll forget him, i know you'll etch the family crest
but here in the valley, where kindness leads a tender prey
the legs close together, i remember the look of the new frontier


we're both tired of suck moon, this valley of innocence
there is nothing between us, but the skin could only move so fast
all the husbands of fortune, said this would mend the way i feel
i imagine the crosshairs, the only time you and i were real
Track Name: Butcher's Jacket
walking through this field
wanting to be you
here every lie i told
was once a little true
the isolation
the fear of something new
the senses rise against this coming back to blue

it's so familiar
we're loving it so well
she said she wanted a baby
oh, was i misunderstood?
the casual conflict
of feelings for someone else
a premature fatherhood
reappraisal of the self

to be nurtured
and treated like your kid
that's all i wanted
was to wear that small blue bib
but now i have to cut the wood in the backyard
clean the fireplace
and cook the homemade lard

it's so familiar
we're loving it so well
she said she wanted a baby
oh, was i misunderstood?
the casual conflict
of feelings for someone else
a premature fatherhood
reappraisal of the self
Track Name: Stars Forever
reform the syntax
don't give it away
you wanted more
than we'd ever have to say

that was so long now
we knew it too well
you dragged me here
you brought me straight on out of hell

but i gave you away on that sacred day

cut off from sailing
through my interest of pain
did i feel love or was it something more deranged?

they say stars are forever
they'll just float in the sky
they'll be here now
they'll be here long after we die

but i gave you away on that sacred day
Track Name: Georgia
i enjoy you on my face
your subtle moves
your long embrace
and i hope that you
like me too

i enjoy your living room
the parts of you
that you don't groom
oh i know that you
like that too

but it's a messed up world
and i'm a messed up girl
and you could never try
to be my guy
oh i know that you're in love with him
i saw you dancing in the gym
we could try to reconnect
lord knows this wasn't heaven sent

i enjoy the seventh song
the parts of you that
seem too long
i hope that you
like me too

i enjoy the subtlety
the way the wind
could move a tree
i know that you
like that too

but it's a messed up world
and i'm a messed up girl
and you could never try
to be my guy
oh i know that you're in love with him
i saw you dancing in the gym
we could try to reconnect
lord knows this wasn't heaven sent
lord knows
Track Name: Winner's Circle
when you're big and famous and the whole world knows your name
though i'm a footnote, will you think of me the same?
big daddy's out in bangkok, he's bustin' up the streets
i pray to God that the two of you don't meet

i can't tell you where i'll...
where i'll be in a year
but i'm under your spell, love

so we can both burn through
until it's just me and you
yeah we can both just burn through
until it's all over, blue

blue, you are the sweetest
but you are also are the worst
and even though i said i loved you
i can't help but think it hurts

and when it's two days later,
i'll pull your hair out of my mouth
i'm remembering the taste of you
and thoughts from here on out

i can't tell you where i'll...
where i'll be in a year
but i'm under your spell, love

so we can both burn through
until it's all over, blue
yeah we can both just burn through
until it's all over, blue

well someone remains
through charred after flame
but if the part still works
then that's alright with me
Track Name: Violent Love
garden
you've failed me now
now like you worked, anyhow

from the idealistic strain
comes a new unearthly game

and the system has turned me down
it has grown new leaves and gowns

and the trees that sprouted feet
they now linger in defeat

but i don't care
'cuz i've got you
and there's a million things that we have yet to do
so when they come for me
to slit my throat
you're still the one that i love the most

garden
you've failed me now
in these years
of mercy's howl

and the HEART i've tried to claim
is in her ugly earthly frame.....

but i don't care
'cuz i've got you
and there's a million things that we have yet to do
so when they come for me
to slit my throat
you're still the one that i love the most

the foil's gone
the bank has won
this war is so benign

you are good
you are so strong
you are so DIVINE
