Track Name: no bad days
let's just drop my guts at the nearest liquor store
they'll sell my liquids, sell my core
intoxicating what we pour
the children will ask and ask for more

erase the words we did not mean
the board is emptied, our rooms are clean

quick we're running out of energy
our bones will slip like grains against the sea
you saw it coming bold and clear
i'm counting people while you steer
we fear the thought of losing touch
but you'll just sink if you just rush
i'm playing cards with my own hands
and gaining stress through strict demands

but i just know our hearts get bigger in the night
our veins get thicker in the light
our minds get clearer in the morning
when we've slept it all away
and i am smiling like a child
'cause the words you said were wild

when you called me art.

let's just shake it off like it's our job
complete our errands 'til they're gone
'cause when the moon's out i want peace
as bruises collect onto my knees
and underneath our blankets lie
the dreams we hide that make us shy
yeah words could build a paragraph
yeah words could build a paragraph.
Track Name: getting louder.
please don't yell
i don't take it very well

and though the money's been divided,
i still see change getting loose,
are you going away?
i don't even know
who you are anymore.

i'm getting louder in my bones
i'm getting louder in my tones
i'm getting down with my own bones
i'm getting louder with my own tones

no more spilled milk.
Track Name: shortcuts
if you go away
can you take me too?
i know you're blue
but it's better in two's
yeah me and you
so won't you tell them so
oh oh oh oh
you tell them so

quick shortcut
to the center of our guts
we earned more than what you gave us
and we're tired of sucking up

to your quick shortcut
to the center of our guts.
Track Name: the cost
the world is spinning
like the ballerina in your music box
that you've been watching
i wonder if you stop
and i'm so sorry that the money matters here

but you're a doll, you'll find a way to make it clear
that you've worked too hard to lose to your own fears
and you were brave enough to admit that you were scared.

daylight savings time
i've been waiting to say goodnight.
your eyes are closed
towards the television show
that you've been watching since who knows what
but yourself and all your inner parts
inside a bin
we spin you like the salads that you eat
to clean the feelings
from your
imaginary situations that will probably never happen so

well i hope you realize
you're the ballerina in my music box
that i keep watching
i hope you never ever stop
but i'm still sorry that the money matters here.
Track Name: because
nobody wants to get in trouble
'cause tonight's not the time to be doomed
like i cat i was so curious
are you falling in love with the world like i had done before?

yeah we're soaking in citrus
orange juice from our hair
i am falling in line with you.

break it down.

connect the dots, connect your bones
make wishes on stars so you're never alone, well you're not
we got hands for your hands
and places to stand
a child for your questions and ridiculous plans

you're like a metronome
you keep us on beat
you catch all the liars
with your honesty speech
you're an idol

and we love what you do
you make us laugh
you make us smile with your jokes from the past

yeah tragedies
you're the opposite of that
you fixed all the accidents that made me sad
you're a hero

and your cape is your jacket hung from your head
i'll remember you until i'm dead.
Track Name: youth
and so we sleep in harmonizing dreams
like the drops we dropped into the seams
we are angry with nothing but anger apart
from the madness and terror confusion could spark

we are shaken and shook and published in books
and we're exposed like film and treated like crooks
'cause we stole all the light from the sun and the stars
and we danced to the wind while the fire had warmed up our hearts

and the dreams we dream are nothing more
than we have caused our minds to take and adore
and so are you sleeping tonight
or dreaming with me?
can i pretend that the warmth from my dog is your heat,
next to me?
