Retrograde 03:50
Sometimes we fight without a cause A recourse for inverted flaws Some things we say without a choice A discourse on retrograde noise Some lies we have to rehearse A pleasure to please and to serve Some fears we face on our own A product of retrograde home We’re falling in retrograde motion We’re stalling in upward propulsion We’re shooting, we’re shooting our horses We’re faking, we’re faking remorses Someday we’ll abandon our fame Left to the heirs of the trade And when we lose our devotion We’ll wallow in retrograde fortune We're falling in retrograde motion...

Boots 02:52
Take out your boots from under my bed Walk away from me with your tail between your legs But I miss you every time, so be sure you’re back tonight I’d rather share a married man than have a cheating asshole who’s all mine Take up the chance to take me away I’ve sublet my room and I’m ready to escape I hate your hesitation, do you need an invitation These sunk costs are sinking our ship if we linger any longer we’ll lose our grip And I give to you, and you take your due And I give my love, and you use it up You better watch yourself 'cos I’m giving up, giving up Take back your promise ring, I think it expired Cos when he runs his fingers through my hair I feel like I’m on fire On a rocket to the moon, oh I’m in love - but not with you By the way, I called your wife You’re right she’s a bitch - good luck, and good bye.

Barcelona 02:15
I didn’t know, I didn’t know I couldn’t go, I couldn’t go with you to Barcelona because you didn’t want me to come Your love was pure, your love was pure I was so sure, I was so sure but then you left me for Barcelona now it’s your flag that I burn

Clear 03:19
I don’t believe I’ve met you before Hi, my name is vanity whore Hi, my name is I’m too fucked up for you Love, let’s be clear: I don’t like you I do believe it’s your turn to pay Boy, I need to have a good day Boy, I need to know the things I can’t Love, let’s be clear: we will never be friends I don’t believe I’ve met you before Hi, my name is jealous whore Hi, my name is I’m too fucked up for you Love, let’s be clear: I don’t love you

The shadows of the clouds Don’t escape the mountain side The sun outlines Their enormous size As tangible as clouds can get Is merely a visual trick Let’s isolate the snowflakes With our elbows and chins I caught the influenza tiger With my hips Indifferent to the town below The clouds descend the mountain side They consummate the wintertime The snow blinds As tangible as clouds can get Is broken down in crystal bits Let’s isolate the snowflakes With our elbows and chins Let’s try to catch the winter With our wrists Let’s use friction To heat our frozen lips I caught the influenza tiger With my hips, with my-- The slanted rays emitted by the sun Cannot warm us up As tangible as death can get And never realizing it Let’s isolate the snowflakes...

Sunrise 02:52
Before the sun rises I think we should run Sprint to a shadow of a smoking gun Fall asleep and wake up in the park Before the sun sets I think we should stop Ponder our bodies and pawn them off Open our souls and shut them to the dark Before you go, won’t you stay? After you go, just stay away After the sun rises I think we should swear to climb the beanstalk and leap from there swim across the ether After the sun sets I think we should fall Let go of everything and lose control dry our tears with the grass on unmarked graves Before you go, won’t you stay? After you go, just stay away I’m shrugging but the world won’t budge You’re laughing but you’re terrified Before you go, won’t you stay? After you go, just stay away

Let me pass, let me pass, let me pass I’ll pay these rites of passage with my innocence Blood brothers until we die Reddened cheeks and reddened eyes I will not cave To fear of losing face I will just brave The mines and hand grenades Let me pass, let me pass, let me pass I’ll pay these rites of passage with my innocence Soul sisters until we fly Reddened cheeks and reddened eyes I will not cave To the fear of losing face I will just brave The mines and hand grenades Let me pass, let me pass, let me pass I’ll pay these rites of passage with my innocence Star crossed until we lie Opened hearts and opened eyes I’m not gonna cave To the fear of losing face I will just brave The mines and hand grenades

This May 02:01
Last May is racing through my mind The people I cut off from in a line A clean break from the wreckage of my past First place, cos I’m sick of getting last This May is pounding in my heart Waiting for my car to start So we can cruise the new neighborhood Talking how they never understood Next may is running through my head But now, it’s time to go to bed So we can dream of the things to come And wonder if we’ll have any fun
