Track Name: Lost Boys
Who you are will grow so far from who you were
there's no backwards traveling through calendars
Who you are will grow so far from who you were
while the mirror makes you wish you were a vampire

I wanna disappear!
You won't even know I'm here
I want to disappear

Who you are will grow so far from who you were
For the affliction of age there is no cure
Who you are will grow so far from who you were
while the mirror makes you wish you were a vampire

I wanna disappear!
You won't even know I'm here
I want to disappear

don't waste your time yeah yeah!
don't waste your life yeah yeah!
don't become something you don't like

I wanna disappear!
You won't even know I'm here
tick tock tick tock
I want to disappear
Track Name: Born There
Please don't be a memory sad sister in my dream
of buried things and wedding rings and bones under the dirt inside my hands
don't ever bring me here again

I am coming after you dark stranger in my room
I laid the blankets on the floor and looked into the space under the bed
Where everything alive is nearly dead
and cold

I am not an enemy strange spider in the tree
I climbed to see my house from somewhere else before I'm swallowed up again
and I wont ever be your friend

come and keep me company old electricity
and light up all your bulbs to paint the walls on all the open window glass
Until we're all alone at last
and glow

When the brown and growing grass, sang their stories to my back
I saw the pictures in the air and when I die I'm going there
All of us are going there

Please hold a place for me new mother in my dream
in everything that ever is then ever was then ever is again
and I will take it at the end of all

When I found the crawling creek
I saw myself inside a tree
and climbed until I found the air
and all of us were born there
Track Name: Stepdad Rock
Sunrise and a pocket shirt
I know you believe in work
and marriage for convenience
everything you've ever done's made sense

But nothing that you ever said
had any bit of love within
on his deathbed how am I gonna talk to him?

What'd you ever share with us?
but her mowed over asparagus
and like a garden turned to lawn
you got a life you didn't want

But top 40 and reruns of M.A.S.H
can cover up the silence
on his deathbed how am I gonna talk to him?

You've still got a lot to prove
said the rock I tried to move
now let me teach you how to build a fence
nothing that you've ever done's made sense

And nothing that you ever did
could make you anymore my kid
on his deathbed how am I gonna talk to him?
Track Name: Half Note
I'm trying not to dream about you anymore
Cause all I do is wake up tired
and all I do is wake up sad
and all I do is wake up empty like a half note

I'm not sure if I know what you are like anymore
and I'm not sure if I know what you look like anymore

I'm not in love with you anymore

When I woke up I pulled the blankets off the window

I'm not in love with you anymore
Track Name: The Daughter and the Sun
Little light of mine
you will never die
'cause as long as there's a sun we're under
you and I will save each other

Swallowed in the sun
You are the one

Little light of mine
I will fight until I die
'cause as long as there's a light above you
I won't let them ever touch you

I wont let ultra violet rays take your life away
I wont let ultra violet rays take my life away

now the earth is empty and now the sun is full
and now the world is spinning around and around your pull
and now each night I watch you die and fade away
and rise again each day
you rise again each day

Now I close my eyes when I look into the sun
Track Name: Rowboats
Rowboats I see Rowboats
Almost everywhere that I go
They get farther from the land
and smaller then they end
and they're filled with every friend that I know

I know how should I know
where anybody goes when they go
I want to believe
that they're watching over me
or they're part of everything but I don't

Leaving you are leaving
and you're living like you have a reason
I'm happy for you
that you've realized what to do
and you've found something that you believe in

Even if you wont wait for me

Tired I was tired
Between everything is string and wires
then on the very edge
of the corner of your bed
you tried to fill my head with fire

sideways now I'm sideways
changes always seem far away
and sure, everything's pretend
and fine behind your hands
but man, if that's gonna end then why wait?

I want to wait for you

Try to remember what they teach you
the earth id moving underneath you
it's not a lie, you fill find your way, you will

Leaving now I'm leaving
to everything there is a season
to write another song
forgive where you come from
and try to find yourself a reason
Track Name: A Sound From Underwater
Water's cool and water's clean
and good enough to give our feet
like an upside down baptism or something

to make us new where we feel old
inside our skin or in our souls
or just at least
to make us feel more clean

taking socks off on the lawn
felt like I was putting on
old clothes I thought I had grown out of
or stepping backwards into some place that I loved

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you

Dark is deep and dark is dark
like scariness inside my heart
or the inside of a middle school at night

Our reflections were in front of me
not bright enough to let us see
how old we were or how we looked that night
anyway, that always changes in my mind

You kissed me and we looked around
and I started thinking about
a picture where my mom taught me to swim

I'm not sure now where it went
but then while kissing you again
I thought I felt like I was falling in

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you

I tried to scream "I felt in love today"
with all the rage of roaring waves
but it came out like a sound from underwater

You make it harder to accept
that nothings ever permanent
and now I think you're all the things I thought were

when hands are soft and hands are wet
they make it easy to forget
that only those you love can let you down

So if it's dark and hard to see
you through the water over me
I'll scream and try to make a louder sound

I hope I die before I ever disappoint you
Track Name: All is Lost
I was lost inside the trees and I believe
that when the woods were creaking they were finally speaking to me
and through a bend like through a friend
like through their own inflection said "there's no direction"
all is lost

I was lost inside the house, inside the mouth
of a voiceless father and his former lover
who was lost inside a heart inside a shark
that she could leave if broken if she ever spoke up
all is lost

I didn't belong there at the bottom of a kite at the bottom of a life
I was a drivers license in a bolt of lightning I was gone
and I was free and when the ghosts inside me cleared out
I was an empty locket electrical socket
all is lost

I would love to know what's been going on
and I would love to know where you're coming from
I would love to know where the words belong
I would love to know what's wrong

come find me come lift me up

When I was lost inside the dark you pulled the trees apart
and left a thousand tiny eyed holes inside of my heart
but never mind I'll never mind
when you're in love with something and it's all for nothing
all is lost
Track Name: Orphans
I know you never wanted a life here
when you were singing that's as good as it gets
everyone was trying to hold your hand
and you were pulling them inside of the mess

low where I was trying to find you
in boxes meant for me to be closed
I learned that it's hard to make things right but it's still harder to let things go

But wasn't I beginning to love you
when I was putting all your pictures away
when everything was starting to quiet down
I started hearing everything I say

But in my dreams of home
we're still orphans there
inside our rooms alone
we're still orphans there

Can you watch t.v. while I fall asleep please?
I'm awake I'm awake keep the dark away from me

In the dark where I saw you in the ceiling
in the bed where I saw me in the wall
my mind inside the dark would take me far away
if you were there I was too scared to call

But there was where I woke up excited
under the colors of a wondrous age
like I was running underneath the parachute
but once that starts it starts to go away

Why can't I sleep?
