Track Name: Floated In
I floated in and started living

passed a blondie asked you a question

"What are you doin? What are you doin?"

now it would be bedtime if I could close off my mind

it just flops onto you, wet and soppy glue

what are you? you know I'd love to

rummage through your silky pink space cap oooh

I floated in and started living

past a blondie asked you a question

"What are you doin? What are you doin?"
Track Name: If I Had a Dog
If I had a dog, I'd take a picture every day

am I still so sad? is that pretty lame?

everybody says "your decisions are okay

but here's a better idea…" and a comment not about my brain

if I had a love, I'd draw a picture every day

am I still so mad? I guess that's pretty lame

everybody says "your first one's just a game

you'll find a better one…" and a comment about my body
Track Name: Fool
your name is a triangle, your heart is a square

I love to see you way over there

once I was happy, you found it intriguing

then you got to me & left me bleeding

you make me feel like a fool

waiting for you

I thought we could eat bread, I thought we could talk

on darker days with our boots kicked off.

you look to me, and I look away

though I had been looking

you make me feel like a fool waiting for you
Track Name: Embody
someday in bravery, I'll embody all the grace and lightness

everybody understands me, but I wish nobody understood me

so you could be the one who did

embody all the grace and lightness

the world is pretty big, it's cool we fit on it

it makes me wanna grow, so I can go see more

Sarah is a lightbeam

from the picture Jonah sent me

it makes me so happy she embodies all the grace and lightness

it's sunday night and my friends are friends with my friends

it shows me they embody all the grace and lightness

Florist signs are everywhere, Emily is in the air

on tour with Gabby

we embody all the grace and lightness
Track Name: Too Dark
I wish I had some control

you embarrass me in full

I feel low low low

I don't wanna know how flustered you were

I just wanna hear

you say you were wrong

how easily I become not real

like a bug you brush off your ear

you're just dust, I'm just dust

if your love was strong as my shame

I'd marry you and take your name

but it's not, you'll never get it

so I guess I'll just forget it

too dark

I stand alone, lucky and unknown

do I belong? do I belong? do I belong? oh

when I know I'm not the best girl in the room

I tell myself I'm the best you can do

do I belong? do I belong? do I belong? no

I drink bad coffee, hope that you'll call me (do I belong?)

never look back, never look back, never look back, oh (do I belong?)

when I get bored, I crash up on the shore (do I belong?)

too dark, too dark, too dark, oh (do I belong?)
Track Name: Tour Good
I don't know what I'm cut out for

if there's anything I have love for

I'd throw myself upon its door

and tell it how fucked you are

up in morning / down at dawn

warm up vocals / sing a song

sit in car / read a book

rest stop eggs or chips,

I look at you every day

you change, I change, hooray
Track Name: Interlude
Ronnie & Frankie miss Meredith even though

she's Owen's friend, not their friend, they also love Momo

even though he's not Joejoe
Track Name: I'm 20
I'm 20

washed up already

I'd sell my soul for a free pen

on it the name of your corporation

ooooh ooooh

If by some chance you know

what is cool, tell me how

I wanna be just how you

would imagine me to

ooooh ooooh
Track Name: On the Lips
I watch David Blaine

find myself believing

in anything, in many things

I watch David Blaine

find myself believing

in anything, in anything

where would I kiss ya

if I could kiss ya?

why would I kiss ya

if I could kiss ya?

I'm sorry I'm high let's go

sometimes I cry cause I know

I'll never have all the answers

separated by a subway transfer

I watch you disappear

as my train rolls away

I know you could've kissed me

but I'll have to wait

where would I kiss ya

if I could kiss ya?

why should I kiss ya

if I could kiss ya?
Track Name: Sinister
my soul is not like a waterpark

it's big but surprisingly dark

it's not as forgivable as you once thought,

you'd still be here if it really was

you really were a pile of rocks

on some planet so far up

how long did we even sit?

it's good I can't remember it

sometimes I get sinister

can't always be like Arthur

sometimes I just feel sinister

can't always turn to Arthur

New Mexico where I ran to

and closed my eyes and thought of you,

and all the time we weren't friends,

a parked car we made out against

so you went home and shut me out

and I grew up, backseats and mouths

and there ensued some other shit

I'm glad I don't remember it

sometimes I get sinister

can't understand Arthur

sometimes I just feel sinister

can't always be like Arthur
Track Name: Is It Possible / Sleep Song
when I say goodbye

you act like you lost something,

or were you really realizing?

is it possible

that I really miss you?

New York feels so huge...

what's up with my fate?

is it too late? or is it gonna change?

if I let myself, I could go crazy,

or maybe if you let me

now that I know that every time I get sad

you just hate me

you can go to sleep and sleep it off

peacefully

I'll be here all night feeling

totally fucked

wondering what tomorrow will be like

and staying up

I guess I just make myself the victim like you said

that's why when you treat me shitty you get mad

it all makes sense now, thanks so much

goodbye forever, what the fuck
Track Name: Outside with the Cuties
Outside with the cuties

I don't think the woods are too deep

the grass covers the sand

all the wood is damp

Feeling very touched

cause my friends are in love

Feeling pretty far from home

so I sit to write this down

I guess it's not really brave

I know I'm not a lake

I haven't written this part yet

will you help me write it?

you are bug bites on vacation,

you find the sad in everything

can't see you cry, you're down the street

I wonder when you'll talk to me

your eyes reflect the greenish moon

you move towards me and I love you

I love you

I love you

I haven't finished this song yet

will you help me fix it?
Track Name: Sappho
From the street I see

your window and I look up in

is that even your house?

is that Sappho you're reading?

is it cool when I don't care?

can you feel me in the air?

under the crack in the door,

can you tell I have no floor?

and I'm shivering just thinking

where have you been all these minutes?

I am too stressed out to

do the thing the train won't do

but why should I fight back?

I'm just not like that

and I'm sorry if I have been a real bad friend

your face too close to mine to hear you talk

so I look up into your window

from the street where I am standing (so i look up into your window)

is that even your house (from the street where I'm standing)

is that your landing (is that even your house)

and I wanna know what (is that your landing)

you're reading

is it cool when I don't care?

can you feel me in the air?

under the crack in the door

can you tell I have no floor?

I'm not grounded, nothing

nothing nothing
Track Name: What If
what we do, for our kids

when we don't know who

or what it is

what we do, for young love

what if? what if?

what is What If?

I'd be down to break my fall

using my guitar

sunlight on the subway pole

fur against a turnstile

so last minute

oh, to be in it

when you're young, you're too young

when you're old, you're too old

too few ideas, or too many

I'm reminded of a dance party

when you walk into the rest stop

I'm fluttery, you got me feeling so clean
Track Name: O Dreaded C Town
If you really need to stay inside

just to be sure you don't break anything,

please don't invite me over

cause I don't think it is working

Today I walked through your town

it's ruined for me now

I still think you're in every van

and I peer into all of them

you were a dealer, a friend, a prick,

a friend again, with more to it

now you're a ghost, a memory

or maybe just a bad story

Where are you now? I don't really care

Who you're around, who you're making scared

I don't know or care to know

I don't care or know to care
