Track Name: Not Ready For The Show
go, time, wrap my head in
wire, tired, track across the back
cry, i burn into my
eye, cold, and i see strangers oh
you know, i’m not ready for the show
somehow i gotta get out here i gotta get moving i gotta get open i gotta get gone
now somebody’s shaking somebody’s lonely somebody’s waiting and it won’t be long
nothing is secret nothing is stupid nothing is nothing and everyone’s dumb
i’m getting closer i’m getting loser getting stuck so somehow god
i gotta get out there i gotta get moving i gotta get open i gotta get gone
you’re not shaking you stand sideways you’re still waiting but i won’t be long
nothing is secret nothing is stupid nothing is nothing and everyone’s dumb
i’m getting closer i’m getting loser i’m getting stuck now i gotta move oh
you know, i’m not ready for the show
Track Name: Finally Gone
you’re so cool
but you could lose it too
back it up back it up
i don’t wait to be alone i don’t wait to be a part i wait to be whole heart i wait to kick a start could have shut this up so
i’m all done
i am finally gone
i’m in love i’m in love
you’re all sleep
yeah i don’t want to leave
i fucked it up i fucked it up
Track Name: Into Time
my hands are getting cold
my face is growing thin
my friends are turning old
but i’m just coming in
you’re older than you look
your hands are made of time
you never learned to smile
but i don’t seem to mind

i’m always having fun
i never waste no dime
you keep me on the run
i’m running into time

this all so over grown
this all so into light
you’re living on your own
i’m sleeping into night
my shoes have holes and holes
my heart has more and more
you’re in a normal house
i’m looking at your door
and you’re headed somewhere warm
and i’m going somewhere else
and you seem to know the time
why can’t i know myself

i’m always having fun
i never waste no dime
you keep me on the run
i’m running into time
my shoes have holes and holes
my heart has more and more
when you want to leave that house
i’ll be waiting at that door
Track Name: Not Some Body
you figure it out again
you say it out loud again
not feeling so proud again
you’re stuck on the ground again
you make it okay again
you say what you say again
delay and delay again
delay and repeat
you’re over your dose again
you’re feeling the breeze again
you’re freezing the air again
you’re locking the door again
you’re getting the point again
you’re breaking the ice you made
delay and delay again
delay and repeat
i’m not some body
talking myself i ain’t
talking for me i
am not somebody
you’re not so lonely
talking to your friends ain’t
talking my house down
shooting up like heads now
Track Name: Run
face always out of air
air thicker in this place
this place is wrapped up in your mind
run
you’re scared of having time
so you cover it up like you’re really just that tough
you’re a tough guy
but you’re making you low, did you really want to go
i don’t think so
now you’re painting the walls, you think you’ve got them all
and you’re not wrong
but you’re static in space with that tough look on your face
in your own place
Track Name: Stick
empty face open space running late
this is not the only place
look away
redeploy redirect redisplay
i’m not in the mood today
look away

i say something and i love someone
and i hurt someone and i touch someone
and i stay undone and i lay in bed
and i lock the door and i shake my head
and i feel it come, i feel it go
i can watch it leave, it’ll leave me slow
but i found some head and its got this ache
i see the sun but i’m not quite straight

open high only face lonely feet
seeing all the people on the cta
look away
count my steps burn and burn light my way
coming toward me coughing almost every day
look away

i say something and i love someone
and i hurt someone and i touch someone
and i stay undone and i lay in bed
and i lock the door and i shake my head
and i feel it come, i feel it go
i can watch it leave, it’ll leave me slow
but i found some head and its got this ache
i see the sun but i’m not quite straight
and i got the news but i’m breaking too
i go blue and blue i go blue and blue
if it’s true it’s true and i got some glue
you make it stick cause you got some too
Track Name: Lover
when i’m eyes under the cover
i look until i see the other
i tell myself about the lover
you just smile until it’s over
collect me now cause i feel older
you keep me warm when it gets colder
i cool you off when you’re all hothead
and we go underwater instead
and when i sleep i sleep with everything under me
and when i’m down i’m down and only you’re real to me
and when i dream i dream the things that you want to be
and when i die i die with you still inside of me
and when i’m high not high as when you’re here next to me
and when i think i think i’m not much of anything
and when i laugh i laugh and only you laugh with me
and when you cried i cried most everything out of me
