Track Name: 1926
Underneath your doormat I left you a note
Taking you with me in the sidewalks down
Over the Plymouth horizon 1926
Seventy doves and an albatross
Seeing you here is my only wish
Underneath your doormat I left you a note
And in its pages words that I shouldn't have wrote
Track Name: Evening in February
Often times I wonder if what's found can not be found
Are the facts and figures in my head unknowable unsound
And if I could only tell you the horrors I have seen
All the evil that this world does hold can wipe any slate clean
I am clean
And I have listened closely to the sounds the forests make
to the words they whisper in my ear and its all that I can take
I am through with going nowhere I'm through with slowing down
I don't know just where I'm going but I know I'm going now
Evening falls in February snow fresh on the ground
All infinite colors in disguise
There the wilted flowers in the evening will go down
Holding all their petals in our eyes
Our infinite colors in disguise
Track Name: Bleach
Your eyes are on backwards as your painting the sky with me
I'm staring at your half I'm certain to see what you see
My darling you really are lost
But darling I will not give up
Our shadows are sleeping but our bodies insist that we drink
You're tired and trembling I empty my heart so you'll blink
My darling well what'll I do
Cause darling I'm only so new
Tying all my thoughts I'm tying all my dreams to your ankles
I'm wrapping all my love through all your broken limbs but it's tangled
You're tearing the tapestry you're tearing out all of my thread
I'll show you the pattern I'll show you I've done what it said
Here darling I'll mend your fall
While darling you rip a new hole
Your eyes are still backwards and your paints have all start to run white
Your conscience is leaking it's pouring out all your insides
Taking out the trash I'm cleaning up all of your spills
I'm running out of bleach and with what I have left oh I'd kill
My darling we really have lost
So darling let's put down the brush
Track Name: Go
Move in close dear and I'll tell you something I've tried to forget
The only thing that I haven't told you about me yet
It's been this way for years though
I have all but forgotten it now
Move in close dear and I'll tell you something I've learned to regret
The only thing that I wish I had never left unsaid
It's haunted me for years though
I am not sure I can let it go
I move my feet around pacing all these halls
I catch your gaze
My tongue and stomach both in knots
Your efforts to until them futile still
The sparrows in your eyes pierce into my thoughts
I can't escape
You want to know what plagues my thoughts
But I as sure as hell will never tell
