Track Name: healthy somethings
pass the time
to some different kind
of place
and I hope past some line
I won't care for whats outside
and when I hold my life I'll find it very light

no softer than stone
I don't want to feel all I want to hold

time sews a silk of sulking
its strewn on healthy somethings
that don't want to go
it always comes hulking
its cupped hands whisper nothings
into a longing ear
Track Name: rather not do
up high I take a look around and ask myself
if I fell where would I hit the ground
driving down one of two lanes
and as the other car comes towards me
I realize that people die this way

cause in your head there's something
something that just wants to unmake your bed
and slide up next to you
and its true there's nothing
nothing you would rather have it not do

up high I take a look around and I tell myself
if I fell I'd probably hit the ground
outside thinking fresh air can distill me
I see a man and think
oh this man is definitely here to kill me
Track Name: matador
hey
Im a heavy hearted bull
you're a matador

hey
Im heavy handed knock
at the door

hey
Im a badly blended hare
on your lawn

hey
you're a puzzling one
I don't know how to act around
Track Name: stranger
closed up in his bed
he doesn't cry in his bed
he gets tired when the sun hits his head
and I admire just how he tastes every breath
cause he's a body
he's a body
that knows
that knows
not to love much of anyone
Track Name: christmas lake
oh no
i want to go home
and every second
weighs even more
than the last
only a minutes passed
the only son
of an hour glass

is this what you want to be doing
is this what you want to be doing
I'll take you down to the christmas lake
to the christmas lake
well it just keeps on giving so you don't have to take
don't have to take
anymore
anymore of you

he says come in
well he says he's been thinking about you all day
what a thoughtful soul!
and a pitiful love all over again
cause in your bones
the marrow feels so alone
you're enclosed
but never comfortable

is this where you want to be sleeping
is this who you want to be seeing
I'll take you down to the christmas lake
to the christmas lake
well it just keeps on giving so you don't have too take
you don't have to take
I'll take you down to the christmas lake
to the christmas lake
soft, fluid and there
all for your own sake
Track Name: one of many
oh they come and go
press down on your spine
and you sigh out a note
just one of many kinds
well you step out
past a lovers line
and it's just one
just one
just one of many times

I'm one of many
that sits and soaks
with plenty
of days to spare
Track Name: grains
put a foot on me because I want to
be under your feet while you walk through town
i want to be mixed up with cement and
laid out in the sun to dry and set and
never move again

a sentiment for the sediment
and wouldn't it be just oh so sweet?

I wouldn't mind being in the ground
fully alive to sing settled sounds quietly
so throw it on my chest off of my mind
one nesting press to slow my stride
Track Name: walking backwards
when you aren't looking
I hide your stuff
when you aren't looking
I hide your stuff
and I do it, well,
just because
I want to help you find it
make you look at me in spite of
everyone else

oh but here's what I'll do
I'll walk backwards in hopes that I
run into you
