about

We encounter ourselves in others all the time
and if we get disappointed
it is really ourselves we are disappointed with

Track Name: Sleep/Sunrise
Sleep/Sunrise


look I don't mean to say it's bad
cause I don't think these things can change, and so don't you
and as there's nothing we can do
it's doing nothing we got good at
listen to all these people talk
frenzied wild eyes, nose dipped in chalk they found some truth
and went and stuck it on repeat
into some new age half sense loop


I'm with the girl that is too high to
tell me her name or ask for mine so
I try to do without the talking
but get so tired, tired, tired
and still can't get myself to sleep


you felt that need to pile us all
our smiles on call inside a tiny photo booth
like you saw all these tourists do
guess you grew tired of playing it cool
and then we're dancing in the smoke
making up lyrics to "nothing compares to you"
before we head for one last drink
and someone to compare nothing to


I'm with the girl that is too high to
tell me her name or ask for mine so
I try to do without the talking
but get so tired, tired, tired
and still can't get myself to sleep
now I'm trudging in the sidewalks
guess I've tired of Berlin's talk
if there is no bad there is no hope
but if I'm dying, I don't expect
any of you to know my name


we can be in love if we choose to
that glitter on your cheek's looking good though
you cannot make that count on a Tuesday
when the weekend seems so far
and your friends forget to call you
you're still the one I think of when it's sunday
and the thoughts of death come screeching down my hallway
but forever's bad advice and i know better
so i go and take a walk to make sure that I won't call you


oh guess now I'm growing old
guess now we're growing old


I'm with the girl that is too high to
tell me her name or ask for mine so
I try to do without the talking
but get so tired, tired, tired
and still can't get myself to sleep
now I'm trudging in the sidewalks
guess I've tired of Berlin's talk
if there is no bad there is no hope
but if I'm dying, I don't expect
any of you to know my name
Track Name: Shape It Out
Shape It Out


remember those times we used to say
that nothing ever goes our way
guess nothing ever went our way
let go of your days of atheist prayers
cause something has just come our way
look something has just come our way


our legs they seem to cast a spell
let's shake it out
let's shake it out
I've never felt as much myself
let's shape this out
let's shape this out


now there is hope trapped in your eyes
and you can't help but smile
I just can't help my smile
amidst the lights we found a place to hide
it keeps us warm and bright
i'll keep you by my side


our legs they seem to cast a spell
let's shake it out
let's shake it out
I've never felt as much myself
let's shape this out
let's shape this out


you held a snowflake in your hand
burning so warm and bright
went set your world on fire
and all the people, streets and buildings
not what they used to be
not what you're used to being
being


our legs they seem to cast a spell
let's shake it out
let's shake it out
I've never felt as much myself
let's shape this out
let's shape this out
Track Name: Brutus
brutus


you used to be happy, when I, I was sad
but now something has changed, you say
this world it's ours to take
Our new found union, and all the shores we find
we split in half


cause this world, it's ours
oh this world, it's ours
this world, it's ours
oh this world, it's ours


you used to be worried, when I, I cried
said there was something in my system, that just was not right
just like two wheels that never clicked
a borrowed suit, it wouldn't fit
forget these times anyhow
cause mickey mouse she's grown up a cow


and this world, it's ours
oh this world, it's ours
this world, it's ours
oh this world, it's ours


you can tell a friend by the pinch of his knife in your back
and brutus if one day I must go I hope it will be by your hand


cause this world, it's ours
yes this world, it's ours
this world, it's ours
yes this world, it's ours
Track Name: The Darkest Blanket
the darkest blanket


Walking backwards from the sunset
nervous trying to draw my breath back
some things you said, they'll never change
and then I came and seized you by your words
times I've known you, your flesh on my flesh
drowned in our buzzing, breathless breath
eclipsing headlights, the sirens singing
what was that thing I tried to get right?


soon
you'll
take me back


blood-filled faces, fists on tables
they pile the questions, brick on brick
the pale white walls, they're closing in
the darkest blanket wraps around my skin
knew your shadow, like a tattoo
on my mind, always stuck in sight
you took my breath, my will you trapped
mind now i came and took it back


soon
you'll
take me back
