Track Name: Thanks
Yesterday
At the end of the day
You were gone, so far removed that I
I detached too

To the fly on the wall
I'm observing, you think I'm looking at you

And you know I'll be gone
Like the song the kindergartners didn't learn by june
And you know I'll be gone
Like the song the kindergartners didn't learn by june
It comes so soon

Conversate
As our food prepares
But what I'm served isn't at this table
a few down, towards the door
Two men are making deals

That range from timelines, discounts services
To the rate of exchange between Krugeraands and cocaine

-

And you know I'll be gone
Like the song the kindergartners didn't learn by june
It comes so soon
Track Name: Combust
So long, it's been really great
Going to leave you to your watergate
Sing songs like you mean it man.
What a cool cat, thinking in Japan

But I don't know what has happened inside of your mind
inside your mind
People say that it happens all of the time.
all the time
Shooting stars messed up needles in the sky
burst in the sky
I saw it coming, and opened my eyes

Lay waste to your broken scene
Saying dumb things, like you're Billie Jean.
At you, devil's advocate!
Sayonara, and I'm feeling great.

But I don't know what has happened inside of your mind
inside your mind
People say that it happens all of the time.
all the time
Shooting stars singed up needles dust in the sky
burst in the sky
I saw it coming, I opened my eyes

1993 things are hazy
Everyone getting a little crazy
Somewhere somehow a gear slipped
and untruth became fact
why you argue like that?
why you argue like that?

So long, it's been really great
Going to leave you to your watergate
Sing songs like you mean it man.
What a cool cat, think you're in Japan?

But I don't know what has happened inside of your mind
inside your mind
People say that it happens all of the time.
all the time
Shooting stars messed up needles in the sky
burst in the sky
I saw it coming, and opened my eyes

Open up.

Inside your mind
Inside your mind.
Track Name: I Love Mary
Mary minds her own business
Mary slept in the stable
Bore the child as foreshadowed
From when she talked to the angel

Oh but I
Could not lay with her old man
It's just not who I am

I would stand at the tallest peak
And breathe and smell and be
Because you see
I love Mary, I love Mary

Fell asleep rather naked
Sons shamed by their drunken dad
Who saw visions, instructions
To build a boat upon a hill

Take all of his family
Take the pure, fuck the mocking
And two of every animal
Soon, the waters rise and I

I could not carry them old man
It's just not who I am

And find land at the tallest peak
And breathe and smell and be
Because you see
I love Mary, I love Mary
Track Name: Black Charity
Don't need nothing, not anything I want from you
After this strange malaise you put me through
Some kind of black charity
In your response you opt for me
Beau mon cher, it's what I put you through

You live in a world that never changes
You don't give a damn if you're right or wrong
The sentence cracks, it's just your culture
And that's how the hell you ended up in this song

You wanted to try
You wanted and you needed
Just a bit of reciprocation

Don't need nothing not anything I want from you
You kinda strange malaise you put me through
Some kind of black charity
In your response you opt for me
Au contraire...
it's what I put you through
it's what I put you through
it's what I put you through
it's what I put you through.
Track Name: Crystal Lakes
The lines across your face
From where your head had layed
It's 9am you're late
The job you love to hate

Something tells me you're dreaming again when

You won't find crystal lakes
and go stand there in their water
with the manatees and snakes

Water is so clear
and I can't take you away
from this paradise you make

We drank a lot last night
and then you slapped my face
don't know just why you laughed
but we went home and crashed

And there's nothing to be sorry for

You won't find crystal lakes
and go stand there in the water
with the manatees and snakes

Water is so clear
and I can't take you away
from this paradise you make

---

Wearing shorts and it's cold
On a motorcycle
Driving away, driving away

I twist my wrist the sound's insane
The water from eyes
Flowing to me ears
And tearing away

The lights they flash
they don't mean stop don't mean go
They're just colored lights
Flashing away

It's hard to read that book again
It's hard, to visualize Goliath's size
The stone between his eyes.
Track Name: Beautiful Train
We can't stop what we are it's such a beautiful thing
no one wants to get off a beautiful train
because one voice in not enough
yeah my voice is not enough

So these footsteps hard to follow
and these pills so hard to swallow
I'm looking on
like a soldier at Avignon and letting you go
we could die here and be happy

To far from where we come from no direction
Ahead, behind us rails, linear beautiful train
When your voice was not enough
Your voice was not enough

So these footsteps hard to follow
and these pills so hard to swallow
I'm looking drawn
like the soldier at Avignon and letting you go
and every stone looks like you

We can't stop what we are it's such a beautiful thing
no one wants to get off a beautiful train
because one voice in not enough
yeah my voice is not enough

So these footsteps hard to follow
and these pills so hard to swallow
I'm looking on
like the soldier at Avignon and letting you go
and every stone looks like you
