Track Name: Clementine
You don't even recognize my face anymore
I'd act surprised if I wasn't surprised by your blue hair

Clementine, please don't go away
I love you, today
I cannot see anything that I don't like about you
It's true

Minds apart and hearts together is what we are
If I could hold you and look in your eyes, you might recall my name

Clementine, please don't go away
I love you, today
I cannot see anything that I don't like about you
It's true

Clementine, please don't go away
I love you, today
Track Name: Oh Secretary!
Oh secretary, I like the stars in your eyes
Please don't marry, one of the other guys

Things are moving to a state of unreal, and nervous reactions don't ever help me
Life is coming to a place that's not real, how could this happen to a guy like me?

Oh secretary, was that directed at me?
Should I carry, my hopes and fears on my sleeve?

Oh secretary, I caught you glancing at me
My secretary, I can't contain my glee

Things are moving to a state of unreal, and nervous reactions don't ever help me
Life is coming to a place that's not/so real, how could this happen to a guy like me?

Oh secretary!
Track Name: Hearts On A Line
Hearts on a line, hung up to dry
Look at the time, take out the pie

Heart beat for you, tick like a clock
Nothing to do, breakin' the law
Track Name: Daydream When You're Young
You daydream when you're young, to help avoid the glum
You feel sad all alone, and you don't know where to go

Your crying at your school, always feeling like a fool
Say hi to empty friends, that's how your day begins

Cause you're immune, you're so immune, yeah you're immune, oh so immune

You daydream when you're old, cause you're always feeling bored
You play chess all alone, wait to fall into the drone

Cause you're immune, you're so immune, yeah you're immune, oh so immune

It's becoming more easy to accept my fate, cause I know you and I, we can relate
I'm not saying the trials will go away, just that I can hope to have a good day
Track Name: Disappointment Brings Us To
The disappointment brings us to the climax of your anger
I wanna talk but I feel so blue, and I am in danger
Track Name: Take Me Down (James Iha)
Take me down, to the underground
Won't you take me down, to the underground

Why oh why, there is no light
And if I can't sleep, will you hold my life

And I~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And all I see is you

And take my hand, I lost where I began
In my heart I know all my faults
Will you help me understand

And I believe in you
You're the other half of me
Soothe and heal
When you sleep, when you dream, I'll be there if you need me,
Whenever I hear you sing...

There is a sun

It'll come, the sun, hear them call me down
I held you once, a love that once, and life had just begun
And you're all I see...
And trumpets blew, and angels flew on the other side (dear)

And you're all I see, and you're all I need
There's a love that God puts in your heart
Track Name: Tearing At The Seams
You think I'm tearing at the seams, but nothing appears to be wrong
I think you'll know what I mean, when you listen to this sad song

And oh, despite my memories, I'm beginning to feel that things are alright
And oh, it's such a tragedy, the pain you caused to me in the night

I know it's hard, to believe I'm thinking straight
It must be hard, to relinquish me, make me free from this room

You think I'm tearing at the seams, but nothing appears to be wrong
I think you'll know what I mean, when you listen to this sad song

And oh, you like to diagnose, make people think, that they should subdue
And oh, let me see your degree, a piece of paper holds most of the power

I know it's hard, to believe I'm thinking straight
It must be hard, to relinquish me, make me free from this room

You think I'm tearing at the seams, but nothing appears to be wrong
I think you'll know what I mean, when you listen to this sad song
Track Name: A Walking Figure
Scarcely too high, I can't quite reach it
Something inside, a walking figure

Who am I, to ask the question why?

Escape the night, a bed of flowers
Seeking new life, a life ruled over

Who am I, to ask the question why?

Tell me why, am I obligated to sacrifice to save a life
Track Name: Disappointment Abounds When Interaction Is Involved
How did I get mixed into the thick of it all?
Seems like the only way out is to indulge in a brawl

I'm about to ask you something I've never known
What makes people get up in spite of the drone?

Now that I've heard her answer, the end is in sight
Pretty paper airplanes keep flying by


Asking God for stories I've never heard
Maybe I'll learn something new, oh so absurd

It'll be so good for my ears to get used to the facts
Candy colored contradictions, feeling somewhat glad

Bound to blow some time real real soon, frankly I'm scared
Climb up high and hope to bypass, dirty hands and raw cash
Track Name: Pills, Pills, And Pulses
My stomach pains won't stop with a pill
My stupid sayings don't give me the chills
I'd rather use my time to waste away
Than take part in your time and give you my pain

My pain is a river, flowin' through my veins
It makes me feel special in a sick, twisted way
And makes me feel awful in my normal left brain
Complaining at least gives me something to say

So excited to be in this world
Round and round it spins and it twirls
Comings and goings don't matter to her
Though I often wonder if they matter to him

My pain is a river, flowin' through my veins
It makes me feel special in a sick, twisted way
And makes me feel awful in my normal left brain
Complaining at least gives me something to say

My stomach pains won't stop with a pill
My stupid sayings don't give me the/no chills
I'd rather use my time to waste away
Than take part in your time and give you my pain
Track Name: Pig Horse
Mr. Pig walks into the town by the road
Steeply bent, his horsey knees about to fold

Turn my head to the sound of a pig, he's my own
A pure bred pig, pink in the street, far from home

I call to him, he's yards away, I hear him groan
He just walks, down the street, away from home
Track Name: Sorry I'm Late
I search the space for you, I don't know what else to do
I lose my passport to, a well-trained white Shih Tzu

Running fast, I find myself
In a line with someone else
I look for you, you're out of site
Peer through crowds with all my might

Soon I run into you, my heart's pressure gets removed
I see myself in you, we look so wonderfully blue

Running fast, I find myself
In a line with someone else
I look for you, you're out of site
Peer through crowds with all my might
Track Name: Dreamin' Of The Devil
Fear is like the devil's heart, it gets you down
It brings you up when you're down on the ground

I don't want to know the future
I just want to be alright when I look in your eyes

Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
I love you, though you did me wrong
Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
It's about you, won't you sing along?

My dreams are not for sale
Though they get me through the night without a scar crossing over my skin and leaving a red mark

I don't wanna run, I've got a lot to say
Though sometimes I'm so scared I wanna move to the woods to live out my sorry life

Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
I love you, though you did me wrong
Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
It's about you, won't you sing along?

Songs for Moe, on an old boombox
They get around, they're the star of every young beatnik's heart when they reach their romantic phase

Happiness is like the wind, it blows around
It moves away when you put on your coat and drive to the common jail

Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
I love you, though you did me wrong
Oh Susie can you hear me? Hear my song
It's about you, won't you sing along?
Track Name: Can't Ya See I'm Beat?
Oh Lord, can't you see I'm beat?
I'm tryin' so hard to meet you at your feet

Oh God, I see you in my dreams
In them I see you're all that I need

Oh Lord, can't you see I'm beat?
I'm tryin' so hard to meet you at your feet
Track Name: Moe's Struggle
Everyday I look up and I feel sad
My loneliness accounts for that
Hopes drowning in soup and so am I
Trying too hard to breathe with sighs

Suicide (icide, icide, icide)
Cause when my heart turns blue I know the dream is dead
Suicide (icide, icide, icide)
Cause when I'm not with you I know the dream is dead

Questions morph into doubts that haunt my life
I escape in the night with closing eyes
Ever present sleep will come in time
Should I wait to die or end my life?

Suicide (icide, icide, icide)
Cause when my heart turns blue I know the dream is dead
Suicide (icide, icide, icide)
Cause when I'm not with you I know the dream is dead
It's in my eyes (my eyes, my eyes, my eyes)
This glance of emptiness that shows what's in my head
Someday I'll die (I'll die, I'll die, I'll die)
Lose this life I have and all the things I've said
Will fade away

Suicide (icide, icide, icide)
Track Name: Michelle
Oh Michelle, I hope we can always be
Something more than yesterday and last week
The memories we've shared together
I hope they can last forever

I compare you to a flower, you look pretty in the grass
I never saw you blooming, until I looked in the past
Oh no

Oh Michelle, I hope we can always be
Something more than yesterday and last week
The memories we've shared together
I hope they can last forever

Been coping with life on my own, you didn't give me a choice
Watching old video tapes, so I can hear your voice
And see you rejoice

Oh Michelle, I hope we can always be
Something more than yesterday and last week
The memories we've shared together
I hope they can last forever
Track Name: Memories, Memories
When I catch you strung out you don't think much of me
When I try to reach out you don't accept my plea

I don't want to escape; I've still got my sanity
When you choose to retrace my steps you will see

Oh, you'll find those memories, memories, memories inside

Played the part for too long now; the game is done you didn't win
Searching hard for a life now, other than your own

Oh, you'll find those memories, memories, memories inside

Information panned south, makes it hard to breathe
Track Name: If My Heart Tells Me So (feat. Kevin Christensen)
Four Months (by Kevin Christensen):

What angelic night was this?
A halo of mid-morning curls,
oceaning quaintly (offbeat) over the soft
corner of the pillow
Where my lips 
surrender
to her skin. 

She stirs 
and turns
to face me.
I can see her eyes opening
and I'm preparing,
Sunshine.
The day truly begins.

Oh, the ocean and the sky
gossip
about the blue tendency 
of her smile
and the gold inclination
of her eyes.

And I don't  
understands why
she doesn't simply 
collapse
under the weight 
of all the love 
she effortlessly
burdens
for the rest of us.

I took her to 
my favorite place in the world
and
I could tell
she had fallen in love
before we arrived.

It's midnight
and
the constellations,
such sweet women,
yearn for my eyes.
But I'm squinting
into the dull light
churning 
love 
and
everyday conversation
as
to not frighten her off.

And
In four months
she'll leave 
without hesitation.
And
In four months
I'll treasure her
with obstruction. 
But
I continue 
to brush 
the sleep 
from her eyes
and kiss her
awake.
__________________________________________________
All the dreams you had were once so, crystal clear, yes my heart it tells me so
In the past, you took hold of all your fears, and in the dark you helped me know
Every day feels like I'm in a brand new year, when my heart follows your flow
You moved me past all of the sad and flowing tears, helped me up and helped me grow
Track Name: Relax, And Go To Sleep
Relax, and go to sleep

Why do I sustain my life,
When hopeful winds keep rushing by?
I eat and breathe insanity,
In spiteful nights that spit and seethe

Relax, and go to sleep

Relaxxxxx
