Track Name: Unfriendly
When I woke up this morning, the sky was turning black.
Red sails, unfurled in warning, this ship is turning back on me, I don't believe you'd turn your back on me. Don't believe in you and your untimely war, you and your unkindly war, you and your untimely war,
you and your unfriendly war, it's unfriendly.
Track Name: The Past Falls Away
Like you, I would believe this perfect iridescence falling from the shadows, drooping roses dreaming of their homes far away. The past falls away, like a kite in a gust - you can attach meaning to it, if you feel you must. Bring me back, bring me back they cry, not until, not until you die. Bring me back, bring me back they cry. Not until, not until you die.
Track Name: Joystick Blues
Once upon, they made a lot of money. I've been to arcades, across the country. Their distant signs gleaming fine say it's not my time to shine oh no, everybody go home. Joystick blues, quarters on the sidewalk. Tattoos of Frogger, laid out in chalk. Joystick blues, quarters on the sidewalk. Street Fighter 2's the only one that can still talk.

Take a walk around the block. Cool your jets, and wrap your head around a thought. Meet me at Kitty Hawk. We'll try to get this off the ground, and when you say we'll never find a way, I rock.
Track Name: Set All Wanderings Aside
Set all wanderings aside for me, and let me drift on the tides, oh please. Now set all wanderings aside for me, and let me drift on the tides, oh please. Now set all wandering aside for me, and left me drift on the tides oh please, I've been left within these ruins, where nothing else is even worth doing. so let all wanderings aside for me, and let me drift on the tides, oh please I've been left within these ruins, where nothing else is even worth doing. now set all wanderings aside for me, and let me drift on the tides, oh please I've been left within these ruins, where nothing else is even worth doing.
Track Name: Cryptozoology 1
I'm a student of cryptozoology, the phantoms of the deep are an obsession for me, so I cast my line into the deep black sea, and found the foundations of my own mentality.
Track Name: Fox's Children
Oh, won't you lean and let me in? I've spent so long waiting outside. When the bunnies are nestled all deep in their dens, with the ducks in the pond and the coop's full of hens, you know the Fox's children cry. They say Oh, won't you lean out and let me in, I've spent so long waiting outside.

When that moon comes slashing through, when the blooded crown drops, I'm gonna nail myself to you, we both die on the rocks. See me, I'm your forever, we're all going down together.
Track Name: Cryptozoologist x
I'm a student of cryptozoology, the phantoms of the deep are an obsession for me, so I cast my line into the deep black sea, and found the foundations of my own mentality, then I took a ride on an Archaeopteryx, to a land both lapidary and lepidopterous. Oh, the stones we dug from the ground, oh, the sights and the sounds we found.
Track Name: Golden Rain: Piss or Nostalgia?
All the bands have broken up, traded in their vans for pickup trucks. Maybe some day I can make amends, trade it in and still be friends. I wanna go back to that day, we waited outside in the rain, from manholes and doorways steaming heat, warming golden rain on golden street.
Track Name: Rock Myself to Sleep
I rock myself to sleep. punk rock myself to sleep.
I rock myself to sleep. art rock myself to sleep.
I rock myself to sleep. hard rock myself to sleep.
I rock myself to sleep. prog rock myself to sleep, if I have to. If I have to.
Track Name: Angels
As I lay down by the riverside, a host of angels filled the sky. Their shadows lay across the land, and dripping swords were in their hands I said Hey, oh hey, let's go watch the angels kill. Hey, oh hey, executors of the will. They slaughtered all my brethren true, in the burning ruins I looked for you. Calls us sinners, thinks we're fools, doesn't follow his own rules. Hey, oh hey, let's go watch the angels kill.
Track Name: Strawberries
See the strawberries growing in the field, wonder how much fruit the soil will yield?
Little red treats all full of seeds, mighty survivors of birds and weeds.
Red strawberries are born, from yellow flowers formed.
Big tin bucket, how much will it hold?
picked and washed and frozen cold.
Dipped in chocolate or laid on a cake, who knows what paths their lives will take?
Red strawberries have dreams, of sleeping in whipped cream.
See the strawberries growing in the field, wonder how much fruit the soil will yield?
Track Name: Like a Sun
I've been left here all alone, with air conditioning and a snowcone. It is just dawning on me like a sun it is just dawning on me like a sun it is I've been left here all alone, with air conditioning and a snowcone. just dawning on me like a sun it is just dawning on me like a sun it is
Track Name: Cryptozoologist 2
I'm a student of cryptozoology, the phantoms of the deep are an obsession for me, so I cast my line into the deep black sea and found the foundations of my own mentality, then I took a ride on an archeopteryx, to a land both lapidary and lepidopterous, oh, the stones we dug from the ground, oh, the sights and the sounds we found.
Track Name: I don't want to die here
I don't wanna die in California, not where the sky blocks out the sun. No cities of angels, no cities of lights. Or even in the shadows of those pines tonight.

I don't wanna die in Oklahoma, not where my mind grows rusty and dull. Ghost of a cowboy or pumping pumpjack, I wanna die away from that.
Track Name: We are the Cracks in the Pavement
Wings grew so wide that they covered the world, you wrote on your wrists the story of a girl. Sit back and wonder, where the day went - way deep down into the cracks in the pavement. We are the cracks in the pavement. We are the cracks in the pavement.
Track Name: In Dreams you can do what you want
In dreams you can have what you want, though you must fight a marshmallow to get it. Welcome to the waking world, where if you lose something, you will regret it. In dreams you can still reach out to touch those now departed, welcome to the rest of the world, where you're stuck almost where you started. Oh dreams, don't tell me what i could be, beyond these seas. When I was child once I was born on a sailing ship sailing coastlines up and down the world tip to tip and I learned some things then that I never should have known, like how to kill a man in only one blow, or a horse in four or a woman in six, but one thing for sure, you can never kill a turtle. Cause a turtle has a shell, and then you'd go to hell, and then they'd ring a bell, and everything would be swell. And we'd all have a party Yngwie Malmsteen snorting crushed smarties and Thurston Moore eating soup that's thick and hearty, and Nixon buggering Reagan buggering Bush, right in the tush, and J. Edgar making like a hoover to him, though his unit be small and slim.
Track Name: Remember December
Remember December, the embers were glowing with fire that transfigured the face of the day. Tired of the expressions of natural selection that wore out their welcome the very first day.
Track Name: I try to Scream
I try to scream, a sound so eloquent, but the words won't come. The words won't come. My breath's been stifled, we've been betrayed, page of this bible, your fingers flayed. I try to scream, a sound so eloquent, but the words won't come. The words won't come.
Track Name: Breaking Better
She don't want to live inside herself no more, she's breaking down the door inside, don't want to live in the dark. In the dark. In the dark. She's breaking out of her heart.
Track Name: Love just wasn't what she thought.
She's given up all hope of finding love again, cause love just wasn't what she thought. A trip to the coast, a fist in the face, love just wasn't what she thought.
Track Name: HOW I FEEL WHEN YOU TALK TO ME
Now here comes the bloody part: undergoing open heart. As you cut into my chest, tell me that it's for the best. Words like knives open my eyes, somehow I am still alive.
Track Name: Farewell
Once it's gone seems like it was never there
I'm not sure if I should even care
It went fast but the memories went faster,
like photographs of a disaster.

Once it's gone seems like it was never real
I'm not sure how I should even feel
It went fast but the memories went faster,
like photographs of a disaster.

Farewell to you, I'm on my way, I'm on my way back home.

Farewell to you,
though it's not fair and I'm not well
I'm living in this bullet hell,
dodging heartshaped projectiles
