Track Name: Clean Air
I gotta stop trying to be here
I gotta stop taking the train
I like the clean air, I'd like to be there
But it all tastes the same

I got a second silver lining
I gotta stop taking the train
I like the great lakes, give what we all take
But it all takes the same

I gotta stop trying to be here
I gotta stop taking the train
I like the clean air, I'd like to be there
But it all tastes the same

I got a second sun that's shining
I gotta stop taking the train
I like the great lakes, give what we all take
But we all takes the same
Track Name: Heaven's Gates
My flesh is bound to bone, my flesh is bound to bone
My soul is bound to hummingbirds, tongue travels a sea of words
To meet you right here
These doses give me heart attacks, I'm taking them in increments
To see you, this clear

Awake 'til we're alone, awake 'til we're alone
With streetlights made of spider eggs, I'm looking over anyway
To see you, this clear
Storming heaven's shores and gates and crossing over interstates
To meet you right here
Track Name: Ganymede
The weight of all the suns in space
Today the stars can trace your name
The time it takes to stay awake
The dirt and grass above the graves
The weight of all the suns in space
Today the stars can trace your name
The time it takes to stay awake
The dirt and grass above the graves

And sleeping silver palms want to believe
Counting rings and feeding your seeds

The light I use to see
Is coming up from underneath
And who I used to be
Is washed into the sea, Ganymede, oh Ganymede

The weight of all the suns in space
Today the stars can trace your name
The time it takes to stay awake
You tie your blood cells up in chains
The weight of all the suns in space
Today the stars can trace your name
The time it takes to stay awake
So you tie your blood cells up in chains

And sleeping silver palms, softly sighing
Breathe me out when Jupiter's rising

The light I use to see
Is coming up from underneath
And who I used to be
Is washed into the sea, Ganymede, oh Ganymede

The light I use to see
Is coming up from underneath
And who I used to be
Is washed into the sea, Ganymede, oh Ganymede
Track Name: Neptune Song
Back on the beach where I belong
Singing you this Neptune song
That I wrote to keep you near in the shadows of the pier
I'm a dirty punk but you're so sweet to me
How do you believe that I could be anything?
I don't wanna die under waves of blue
'Cause when I close my eyes I'll dream of you

String up light bulbs in a row
Above our heads and watch them glow
Burning leaves and paperbacks to keep you warm in the crashing black
I won't let the tide take you out to sea
Use my hands to dig a hole for you and me
We could fall asleep underneath the moon
And when I close my eyes I'll dream of you
Track Name: Sadie
Golden hearts in the ground, you taste like Seven Crown
And bottle rockets at night, racing to the light

Lady Guadeloupe, just give me a sign
Always, always, right on time
Just the bathroom floor, nothing more, but who's keeping score?

And Sadie's under the bed, watching us kiss
Swing and a miss, swing and a miss, swing and miss
Swing and a miss, I quit
Track Name: Eucharist
Always in love and always in debt
But it's never quite enough to make me forget
When I would wake up to the sounds of the sands
You'd put on your make-up and I'd pass out again

Didn't mean to dream the time away
A flower in a dark room, when you held the ashtray
But that was your bed, and your room and your life
I know I can live with this, but I'm not alright
Track Name: Say When
See in time, it's always been here
A string of moments, days turn into years
All the faces that make the modern gem
It's not the bright ones you remembered in the end

We'll go the rest of the way, but I can't say when

Sick inside, too sick to hide
Rows of people, lines of space and time
All the faces, they're racing past your eyes
Constellations, lights that never die

We'll go the rest of the way, but I can't say when
Track Name: Kickball Katy
Kickball Katy plays in the band
Kickball Katy, please take my hand
Drive around, up and down this little town
The music's loud but we don't make a sound

Shared a cigarette in a parking lot
Yeah I gave her everything I've got
Just to get me out of New Jersey
'Cause I hate everything but Kickball Katy

Kickball Katy, California's calling
Kickball Katy, Brooklyn just seems so harmless
Don't ask why, Katy, but I believe in you
I wanna run away and you're something to run to

Shared a cigarette in a parking lot
Yeah I gave her everything I've got
Just to get me out of New Jersey
'Cause I hate everything but Kickball Katy
Track Name: Cowboys
Digging for moments that crawled past your feet when
We sat in the apple tree, the sun set over South Hadley
When we sat in the apple tree, the sun set on the other me
Watching from the fields

Lights above the riverbanks tonight
and it looks just like a dream
Drinking up the dark, but always shining bright
If we can't, then please

The way the moonlight cuts across the trees
That's all I wanna see
The days when we were living inbetween
That's where I wanna be

Lights above the riverbanks tonight
and it looks just like a dream
Drinking up the dark while the city's burning bright
it's who you choose to be

We're just misfits, looking for cowboys
We're just infants, bored with our old toys
We're just misfits, looking for cowboys
We're just junkies, high on our own joy
Track Name: Coronada
Shoulder blades too far apart
Gradients from the start
And the aperture in your eye
The margins between getting high

Through the tall trees, with glass on either side
Run for miles, run across the sky
Through the tall trees, with glass on either side
Run forever, run into the tide

Golden teeth all in a row
Coronada with nowhere to go
Broken bed frame in the middle of the room
I burnt the mattress 'til I couldn't move

But it'll all be over soon
it'll all be over soon
It'll all be over soon
Coronada, but you can't move

Through the tall trees, with glass on either side
Run for miles, run across the sky
Through the tall trees, with glass on either side
Run forever, run into the tide
Track Name: Voyager
Saw the sun rise over Ludlow
Full of green eyes and bathed in arrows
All the glass began to glow
All the building bent their backs and tried to moan

And it's alright, and it's ok
if you're scared of the new day
And it's alright, it's ok
Last night was miles away

Hold the words, let them flood your mouth
Fold the tongues that try to find you out
Smoked a joint on the church steps
Sang our song, and then we wept

And it's alright, and it's ok
if you're scared of the new day
And it's alright, it's ok
Last night was miles away
