Track Name: Alive
Courage to put your love
With the light and the dust,
And sounds and infinite things
You cannot touch.
I’ll not grasp
I’ll not clutch
I’ll not grasp
I’ll not clutch

And everyone I know is alive within reason
And shaking in their bones to be held to the earth,
And everyone I know is alive and unreasonable.

Courage to put your love
With the light and the dust,
And sounds and infinite things
You cannot touch.
I’ll not grasp
I’ll not clutch
I’ll not grasp
I’ll not clutch

And everyone I know is alive within reason
And shaking in their bones to be held to the earth,
And everyone I know is alive and unreasonable.
Track Name: Isabel
If I count my blessings before I
Can hold them in my palm will I find
They’ve all gone?
Well I breathe out flames,
I roll my tongue like a regular
When I speak you name.
Darling, all the same,
I am a new installment,
I could be torn down in a day.

I pile you on to an already heaping plate
Cause falling for you feels exquisite,
Oh, it’s great.
The timing is terrible
So that’s where we put the weight
But I’m waiting for you, stay.
Damn the practical and drink to our delay.

Is anything as strange as getting older?
I lift your shirt back to where is has
Drifted off your shoulder
You got years on me yet
I try to speak beyond myself just to show you
That I’m worth it.
I kiss you on a Sunday,
You say, “Kiss me where you please,
Just come back someday.”

I pile you on to an already heaping plate
Cause falling for you feels exquisite
Oh, it’s great.
The timing is terrible
So that’s where we put the weight
But I’m waiting for you, stay.
Damn the practical and drink to our delay.
Track Name: Oleander
The daisy chain says
To the white oleander,
“Thanks be you are lazy of temper
In that soft, white skin.”

Grows a poison
In the middle of the backyard
Loving your outsides
Want to take you in
Watch how your white makes a killing.
Track Name: Remnants
Just in case we mess this up
I already paid for that
And I’m ready to leave
But you’re not
So we hang out
For another half an hour.

But you’re already okay.

Trying not to drink too much
It’s a slippery steeple
We never want to talk
To the same people
I watch your ankles
On the walk home.

But you’re already okay.
Track Name: Look At Our Faces
We get this stupid look on our face
Whenever the other steps into the room
It’s all for wanting
It’s all for the taste
It’s all for the taste
It’s all because

Oh, I can take this
I can take this one on.

And so we come back for several embraces
All in good graces and all because

Oh, I can take this
I can take this one on.
