Track Name: Magic Lines
I tried to close my eyes
But I knew I never could baby
I woke one morning to see the sunrise
But it never came early

I see magic lines
I see magic lines

You can't take them out
Out of my mind
Out of my mind
Out of my
x2

Don't say it's wrong
I know it's not
Don't say it's not
Give me one more chance

I tried to open my eyes
But it put me underneath the ocean
Looked north no planets up in the sky

I see magic lines
I see magic lines

You can't take them out
Out of my mind
Out of my mind
Out of my
x2

Don't say it's wrong
I know it's not
Don't say it's not
Give me one more chance
Track Name: Jordon Gohnson
Bum ba duh
x8

Gordon shrunk me down like an old walnut
Grabbed me by the hand and he said let's go
Never saw the world from under your foot
Man nobody takes it slow

They moved with the breeze all the ants and the bees
And their thirst was always quenched by a puddle
Some grub and a friend a place to lay down my head
There was nothing more to treasure than a rainbow

This side (oh yeaaaa!)
Is an ocean
This side (oh yeaaaa!)
Filled with no shit
This side (oh yeaaaa!)
Is an ocean
This side

Bum ba duh
x8
Track Name: Hole In My Hand
I woke up with a hole in my hand
Got me pacing round the floor
And I swear people could compare
And it's all becoming real
So real

Sooner I am dying
Sooner I am dying
Sooner I am dying
Oh yeah!

Everybody loves to milk the cow
It's not a problem but I doubt (yeah I doubt)
You will be affected in this drought
Of hands protected by the sound (bigger sound)

Sooner I am dying
Sooner I am dying
Sooner I am dying
Oh yeah!

doo doo doooooo
Track Name: Dust and Light
Heard a simple sound and I knew time had passed
Being alone this time of night
Hour after hour, any could be my last
If I have nothing to be

Knowing I'm here this time tomorrow is something I can never do
If I go on
And on
And on
And on
Maybe some day I'll be me

Hear the children cry, and I'm brought back to home
Where memories and dust are damp in my eyes
If hour leads to hour in the passing of time
I wander back here all alone

Hoping I know that today you're still with me
I'll never be able to live
If I drag on
And on
And on
And on
Maybe some day I'll believe
Track Name: Truly Love
Do you think a love could be aimed
And fired back at you
Just the same
And when it shot right through
All your brains
Were you already dead
Already dead

Something's something's coming alive
And I don't know where and I don't know
Something's something's coming

-Chorus-
It's so hard to tell her
The blue sky's forever
It's easy to feel blue
The whole sky above you

When your feet don't touch the ground
How could you even feel so down
Have I not even been around
Or is there truly love

Something's something's coming alive
And I don't know where and I don't know
Something's something's coming

-Chorus-
Track Name: Coming Back
Woke up this morning
Didn't know where I was
My teeth were broken
Mouth tasted like blood
Libraries were filling
Behind my eyes
That's not what it meant to me
Everybody was speaking in lies

Ran his head under water
Really thinking scared
Touching tips of meaning
Trying hard to care
I'm surprised to be living
Really thought I'd be dead
Feels reassuring to be back in my head

My inhibition fades away
My inhibitions fade
My inhibitions fades away
Gone

I know it's hard to come back
I know it's hard to come back
God damn it's hard to come back
But maybe it's right
And maybe it's wrong
And maybe it's right
You know that it's wrong
Track Name: Girl Band
Girl the river's one for your thoughts
Digging around in the dark
Finding shining hearts
Safe and dry in towels
That smell of flowers
You could smile for hours

Some things can't begin (oh)
Maybe it's the letters on the back of my hand
And maybe it's the letters that are under my skin

Time and time again (oh)
Maybe it's the letters on the back of my hand
And maybe it's the letters that are under my skin

The knife I used to cut my kiwi
You used to go to prison
I don't practice circumcision

Nine out of ten are false alarm
The food poisoned you at prom
Your friends poisoned you

You're just a float away
Bubbles along the cricket's creek

One summer's night I'd look to see
If you're just trash along the creek

-hunk stuff-
Track Name: doG (God)
Well I don't believe in God
And I don't know and I don't know why
I never knew why I would
For others it's such a simple word

It's not a sad song just overplayed
On the radio baby today
It's not a sad
You better believe it's gonna be okay

La da da

I really wish I couldn't give a shit
Bout anything listen but the people I love
They make it so damn hard to quit
You dip your toes in the sand
And you're standing in mud

It's not a sad song just overplayed
On the radio baby today
It's not a sad
You better believe it's gonna be okay

La da da
Track Name: Lemon Earth
When life gives you lemons
You make lemonade
When life gives you bananas
You throw them away

Raj the tree's not in your way
It's your arm
The apple's got two moms
Believe me

Raj no more buggies and mules
All our water is rocket fuel
The world's a sour place
Lemon Earth
Track Name: Haze
Spend my days living in a haze
Thinkin' 'bout the rain
'cause I know it's gonna rain
Had I known 'bout how the years go by
It wouldn't seem that long
Until the day I die

Everyone is in a hurry
to get their weekly pay
But to me it's alright just to be here home

All alone no one else is home
No one else but me
No one I can see
Spend some time contemplating mine
Better way to spend the day
Than to waste it all away

Isolate myself
Just to help myself
Separation burns
But it keeps me learned
Spend all my time
Alone

Spend my days living in a haze
Thinkin' 'bout the rain
'cause I know it's gonna rain
Had I know about the tears I'm gonna cry
I'd probably want to die
You'd probably want to die

If I lived alone
Maybe then I'd be happy
To sit on my be- (cut)...
Track Name: Linger
(Mir ist heis)

Why won't you stay
Cover up and feel it glisten
Please don't fade to another day

La Luna put a sleepy lake under the room you dream at night
One thousand places drift into your slumber on a weightless kite

You are yesterday
For years I hope
It will stay that way
Better than today
Missing you when I'm old

I've had my stay
Met the wolves and woods around them
I can pray I'll be back someday

La Luna put a sleepy lake under the room you dream at night
One thousand places drift into your slumber on a weightless kite

You are yesterday
For years I hope
It will stay that way
Better than today
Missing you when I'm old
x2
Track Name: I Wonder
I cannot believe I was yesterday
When I said I couldn't think til it all was said

Coming round round my back door
Can't feel like I'm like I'm the same
Would I rather have before
Did I change when I changed
When I changed

I don't ever seem to get better
Unless I know for sure
People never get better
They only get less worse

So far baby I get by alright
And if I get lazy I'll be fine
If I hate me I won't know who to blame
I'll just kick some daisies in the rain

Sneaking outside my back door
Can't feel like I'm like I'm the same
Would I rather have before
Did I change when I changed
When I changed

I don't ever seem to get better
Unless I know for sure
People never get better
They only get less worse
