Track Name: Living Again
“living again” (reyes)

we’re walking in the sun
we’ve only just begun
to know just what it’s like
to make each other feel so right

to give yourself
a chance to help
feels like living again
i feel like living again

i tell myself to try
to simply memorize
the moment before it’s past
because miracles they never last

it all gets real
when you start to feel
like living again
i feel like living again
Track Name: Innocense, In a Sense
“innocence, in a sense” (odie)

it's been fun
can we just leave it at that?
the time has come
for this idle and wanton deport is coquettish
it's been done and far more sweeter than that
so keep it on and when you're older much older we'll try
don't you remember tomorrow's been here for so long
it's no longer awake?
"black day and stormy nights, no love and no hope in sight" for days on end
persevere and rise on up with the sun
vacillate and hear the sound of an empty reply

light that is on its way in unpronounceable years in light years
brings death in a figurative sense
to start all over is to start or roll over in a sense
time wasted on negativeness is long winded tales of innocence
in essence
Track Name: Modulating from Montana
“modulating from montana” (sanden)

modulating from montana
i can’t hear you too good
you’re talking while you’re fading out
the western states are leading the lost ones

oh my julie
i won’t let you fade out
oh sweet julie
i won’t let you fade out

like the hippies now all gone
you’d lay your hat for a home
travelin’ whisperin’
you’ve got two fingers there for a comb

oh my julie
i won’t let you fade out
oh sweet julie
i won’t let you fade out

antenna strung my fingers rung
this electric net poised for a catch
head phones on tubes are warm
but your signal falls below the noise

oh my julie
i won’t let you fade out
oh sweet julie
i won’t let you fade out
Track Name: In Love
“in love” (sanden)

watch the girl blowin’ candles out
presents swirl that’s what she’s about
keep it secret it’s a no-no
something real she wanted it to grow
the feeling of falling the pull from below
it’s dangerous in love
in love

i can’t think about anything i want to
the look of her eyes
has weakened me it’s wrecked me
i’m sick so sick

do what you will: pink, red, and blue
believe me I want you to
the devil finds her emergency
feeling cruel pulling apart
you whisper to me, “well i don’t know my heart”
it’s poisonous in love
in love

i can’t think about anything i want to
the look in her eyes
has weakened me it’s wrecked me
i’m sick so sick

in love in love
when you’re sick you feel so low
oh in love in love
so you whisper, “closer closer”
you come so far
feel the devil beat inside your heart
but she’s not in love
no certainly not in love
Track Name: Frost Heaves
“frost heaves” (sanden)

don’t go
it’s cold outside it’s suicide
twenty below
when i need you here i need you near me

frost heaves on the road it means we flipped
hanging down from our belts

oh no
well I think we’re here my wife my dear
oh shit
i lost control back in the ditch

frost heaves on the road it leaves us lost
not to us you say but then we’re tossed like a toy in the snow

glaciers pushing
icy lies from a heated past
i say it’s only a bump in the road

darlin’ it’s a slippery slope
i’m downslidin’
please i’m getting old i’m getting older
oh no
the drifts are piled the metaphor gets meaner
cut the rope we’re plunging down
it gets deeper

frost heaves on the road it leaves us lost
not to us you say but then we’re tossed like a toy in the snow
Track Name: All the Sundays
“all the sundays” (reyes)

it feels like all the sundays in the world
if feels like all the sundays in the world
when you're gone

that dreaded sunday feeling's
coming on
the whole weight of the world
keeps pressing down

it feels like all the sundays in the world
it feels like all the sundays in the world
when you're gone

there's clouds to keep the sun from shining bright
not a soul to tell my troubles to tonight

and all you have to do is smile
and every living thing will bask
in the sun of your eyes

it feels like all the sundays in the world
it feels like all the sundays in the world
when you're gone
