Track Name: specter serenade
specter serenade

rose from your sheets wailing head and grinding teeth
woke in the neighbor"s yard in front of the rabbit"s cage

memories stir what dreams rise
everything they make
sing on my lullaby
my specter serenade...

master at the helm
listen to me well
troll down this river
forever
and amen

grandma to a granddad a wish on her death bed
'love unrequited! my best friend you will wed.'

memories stirs what dreams rise
and i've seen what they have made
sing on my lullaby, my specter serenade

captain at the helm
if love be your realm
then troll down this river
forever
and amen.
Track Name: hymn of muddled sounds
hymn of muddled sounds

laid in your bed all day
while i wasted away
now we talk over screens while your
melting out of your jeans and it seems
like malignancy in rounds

lets go downtown
i got plans
you got ideas
let's put a test to them

love like a state of marshal law
we shot what we never saw
tear gas in our eyes
smoke rings filled up our skies
paralyzed by the sheriffs and the hounds

lets go downtown
i got plans
you got ideas
let's put a test to them

your complacent thighs
my orgasm dries
you speak in polite mimes
the cthedral bells off time but it chimes
a hymn of muddled sounds

lets go downtown
i got plans
you got ideas
let's put a test to them
Track Name: shark song
shark song

i"m gonna get out from under these black wings
maybe stretch my own wings and fly home
i'm gonna leave these things that aren't my things
maybe leave some new things of my own

out from under
out from under
like a monsoon i talk thunder
how long will you wonder
what builds up inside and drags me down

i went to your house in the storm
i nocked on you door and you never came out
and when the sun rose and on my way home
i saw your car parked outside of his favorite bar

out from under
out from under
like a monsoon i talk thunder
how long will you wonder
what builds up inside and drags me down

you got drunk on your usual potion
the floorboards got wet and you slipped in the ocean
and when the shark swam up to bite you
you were so sweet he kinda liked you
and the two of you swam off into the wet frontier

out from under
out from under
like a monsoon i talk thunder
how long will you wonder
what builds up inside and drags me down
Track Name: the leaving song
the leaving song

you're hading off to an east coast town
gonna find your way
had it with the city smack and all the smog you say
gonna live a simple life, a simple life you need
leave behind the friends you got
perhaps the ones you've most grown close to

and your family
has priority
good for you
but not
for me

its a comely night in the neighborhood
all the dogs are fed
all the moms and all the toys
are all tucked into bed
the grass is green and sewers clean
and the cars in the drive way recline
streetlights hush
but the moonlights mush
and all the birds are stuck to the line

and i see
your family
has priority
good for you
but not
for me

and i don't want
to be lonely

and i don't want
to be lonely

and i don't want
to be.
Track Name: thin membrane
thin membrane

a thin
membrane
of seclusion
a vapor
settling down
all around
our ears
our lips
our wrists
and ankles

the hush of its moisture
the musk of its surf
the blood of its colors
settling down
all around
our ears
our lips
our wrists
and ankles
Track Name: home
home

you looked like an angel
inside the door
and you smiled like the devils
primary whore
you looked so lovely
in your own sway
i mistook you for lonely
you mistook me for gay

nobody home... i want to take you
nobody home... home

you went inside the bathroom
called me in for a blow
i thought you were talkin cocaine
how was i to know

nobody home... i want to take you
nobody home... home

panickbird inside my stomach pit
a flashback montage
a mirrored wall at the el cid
a black dress collage
and then you started dancin
like a ghost gangbang
you swiveled then you sidestepped
you let your hair unhang

nobody home... i want to take you
nobody home... home
nobody home... i hope we make it
nobody home... home
Track Name: luckyface
luckyface

one for the outdoors
one for the tent
one for the landlord
one for the rent
one for your laughter
one for your flirt
one for you shittin in the dirt

we come so close together
we have come so far

now lie here
now lie again
stuff it all in a shoe
snuff it out on a cue

we come so close together
we have come so far

we sit cold the sun coming on
pigeons grain through sunlight
their shadows ripple on your dress
as you smile
we're so drunk on the amnesia of it all
we have to stop and make sure
we haven't strangled noone

we come so close together
we have come so far
