Track Name: sin (my right as a human being)
take a little
since you know it's not right
becoming rats in a dark place
since you know it's not right
I am sick to my stomach
since you know it's not right
I have always been fearful
since you know it's not right
it will always be perfectly postured
intimate creature
pacing the room til I win
perfectly postured
intimate creature
all of the trouble I'm in
Track Name: ambition (mysterious and unorganized)
high society, spend all of my time
writing emails reading papers online
crouching, leering, hoping, eyes on the wall
testing water, sensing trouble at all
where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys? where will I go?
where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys? what will I do?
temper tantrum, like I needed it now
window washing, I already know how
wrapped in fire, humid taste in the air
buckle gently, when the trouble is near
where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys? where will I go?
where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys? what will I do?
where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys? where will I go?
what will I do? where will I go? what will I do? where are my keys?
Track Name: fire (when it burns the softest things)
burning candles burning cars
ancient weapons ancient scars
and the strings on my guitar
worship please and where you are
I was so small
my hands would move when I told them to
shaking soft and wild
and sink into things
and hold onto things
and hold onto everything
nothing else matters
nothing else matters at all
Track Name: beasts (apparent horror)
a bat got stuck in my chimney
a man tried to punch me in the face when I got off the train
why won't you leave me alone
a bird got stuck in my building
I tried to get him out with a broom
he looked so scared
he looked so scared
I know they all are trying to kill me
I know they are all trying to kill me
everybody around me I am so scared I am so scared
everybody around me
I am so scared
I am so scared
Track Name: blankets (do you need to be alone?)
I might need you
I might try
pull the patience and the ashes from the sky
I might call you
I might care
I might steal all of the water from the air

dressed in paper
dressed in light
shaking hands but always ready for a fight
old tomato
rainy day
if I only were so brave to let you stay
Track Name: devils (violent transgressions)
white smoke
follow me home
don't follow me home
did you see where I live
there is no God
there are no peaceful people
there are no peaceful people
they are all angry people
they are all violent people
white smoke
did you see where I live
did you see where I live
did you watch me and watch me and watch me and watch me and see
where I live
(are you done)
watching
always watching
I'm not watching
I'm missing
watching you
watching
why was it so cold
in spring?
Track Name: night (everyone getting home)
maybe not old but maybe not stupid
I still find myself falling through the night sometimes
maybe it's peaceful maybe I'm running
if I see headlights light up my face in the dark
I could have yelled out my name
I could have sprinted with groceries
I could have sheltered my shame
I could have said less
maybe on earth and maybe in heaven
there are the ones that take it for granted sometimes
maybe the gate has always been broken
maybe I should have been lying down in the street
I could have captioned the ground
I could have spent fifteen dollars
I could have picked up the sound
I could have made less
Track Name: fear (I Am Very Afraid)
can you sing about justice?
taking turns with the man of war
can you calm me down?
can you talk about anger?
how many times it has made you wrong
how I need you now
and it follows on the buses
and it follows me to work
and I see it on all fours collecting pennies where the soul is dark
and nothing ever hurts
and it watches from the windows
and I see it in the sun
if I had once abandoned
it has roasted in a box
that I had built when I was done
but I would never hurt you.
