Track Name: The Loveliest Leaf
the loveliest leaf on top of the water
will rise retreat whatever the current wills
the hand that points to nine on the clock
it winds itself winds us around again

every day hear the climbing chime
swing its hands around and back
relive relearn release a sound

the tongue gets tied all up in notches
can't tick can't talk can't even sound a tee
the light that comes in through the window
it shines it moves slowly around the room

every day hear the climbing chime
swing its hands around and back
relive relearn release a sound
Track Name: Don't Go (demo)
don't go back all for the sake of a dollar
sure i know i just have to be sure
once you tried to split me into three
times over for days in a row
i saw it coming way too soon
but i couldn't imagine it ever ending

and if you run away
there's so many things to get taken care of
like how will we ever divvy up your stuff
and i agree with you who needs stuff?

if i was like you i'd head to the forest too
i'd take off sprinting like a wild horse
if i was like you i'd head to the forest too
i'd take off sprinting like a wild horse

and every time i think of last summer
all those stupid moves we made were brilliant
and now how we've grown so serious and dull
i'd like to forget everything i've learned

and if you run away
there's so many things to get taken care of
like how will we ever divvy up your stuff
and i agree with you who needs stuff?
Track Name: Lost Inside an Animal (live)
deep in an urban place
far from the forestry
a man lies hungry for
something he never had before
it began as a meal
into his mouth it went
into his stomach it grew
arms, legs, skin, hair

soon he began to change
he was no longer the same
his chest a foreign thing
one, two, three, four
in time the man was lost
lost inside an animal
deep in the forestry
far from an urban place
Track Name: Don't Go (live)
don't go back all for the sake of a dollar
sure i know i just have to be sure
once you tried to split me into three
times over for days in a row
i saw it coming way too soon
but i couldn't imagine it ever ending

and if you run away
there's so many things to get taken care of
like how will we ever divvy up your stuff
and i agree with you who needs stuff?

if i was like you i'd head to the forest too
i'd take off sprinting like a wild horse
if i was like you i'd head to the forest too
i'd take off sprinting like a wild horse

and every time i think of last summer
all those stupid moves we made were brilliant
and now how we've grown so serious and dull
i'd like to forget everything i've learned

and if you run away
there's so many things to get taken care of
like how will we ever divvy up your stuff
and i agree with you who needs stuff?
Track Name: Open My Eyes (live)

bah rum pum pum pa da bum bum bum bum

Track Name: Ex-Proper (live)
finally a break in the quiet lake
that spills through the veins of a piped country
filling up the commune for which it stands
and into the glass of our ex-proper
who's Delaworn-out in Arizona
Colorado away
fooling around on an island
Colorado away

covering an earth in a single spell
by stream by river sea and ocean
soaking in the land with a toxic touch
and into the home of good ex-proper
who's Delaworn-out inside a prison
Arizona away
finally a break in quiet lake
Arizona away

fooling around on an island
fooling around on an island
fooling around on an island
fooling around on

Track Name: Firewashed (live)
it came to be in a dream
all things yellow began to bleed
into their surroundings
soon all was one color

see the world all in one
saturated golden tone
fading fast under the sun
soon there'll be another
Track Name: Sound Is a Moving Thing (live)
spoon hit a pan stick on a drum
knock on a door ring of the phone
sound is a moving thing
that makes you tap on a counter

air through a pipe makes a whirring sound
the locust at night make a shrill
sound is a moving thing
make a clang on a flagpole

the roar of the bus going down the block
spin of the wheel at the carnival
sound is a moving thing
that makes you hum at the grocer's

blow through your lips
breathe through a clarinet
squeeze an accordion
take a bow to a bent saw
or bang on a cowbell
sing with your given voice (sing a sound)

because sound is a moving thing
that makes you dance in the hallway
sound is a moving thing
that makes you yell in a tunnel
