Track Name: Kelsey
Well goddamn if I didn’t get that one right
The ghosts in the basement were disbanding last night
And goddamn I swear I did my best to try
But with so much friction yea I wasn’t quite on time
I swear you’ve got such lovely eyes
I saw you on the balcony I saw you take flight
And goddamn I swear I didn’t drink your wine
The specters in my bed kept me up all night

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me

Goddamn you’re so well designed
I swallowed lightening woke up by your side
We stayed up drinking all night
With the Mexican boys and their sordid smiles
So brush the shards off and walk two steps
The light moves through you
I’d love to see you tear your dress
Just tear your dress

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me

The boys all sit there (they’re practicing witchcraft)
And if you asked me to leave I would go with you
And if you asked me to try I would do my best to follow through
And if you asked me to leave I would build tiny bridges out of the remnants

If you can’t stand up then you can’t fall down
Unless we find a proper way to part the ground
But I think I prefer that you just lie down
I think I prefer that you lie down with me
Track Name: Shake Weight
We can run
We can run out on the ice caps
We can fall
Totally hard until our feet can’t touch the ground
We can climb
We can climb up on the mountains
We can soar
Totally high until our arms can’t stretch no more

It’s a front kick every time don’t you know
Words move like blades against my paper throat
And my thoughts like jumpers off a thirty-story building
To a pool where you crest and break

We can swim
We can swim out in the ocean
We can dry
Dry our clothes and lie naked in the sun
We can sleep
We can sleep out in the forest
We can laugh
Totally hard until we just can’t feel our lungs

It’s a front kick every time don’t you know
Words move like blades against my paper throat
And my thoughts like jumpers off a thirty-story building
To a pool where you crest and break
Track Name: Are We Having Fun Yet?
I had a head full of bees and broken shark’s teeth
You had a thing for the caps of his knees and so you dug them out
I mistook them both for porcelain ash trays
You said, “Oh hell no, they’re made of calcium babe”
I just watched the blood stains, Washed the red down the drain
Saw the atoms fuck the rust, more rust was made
I tried to make the proposition that we do the same
But when I opened up my mouth all the bees escaped

They flew the fuck away

With lights and sound we get in the moment
And we get caught up out on the floor again
With lights and sound we get in the moment
And it’s all alright, it’s all alright

Guns up guns down john gags, what you got in that bag
A paper cup and a bottle of sprites, we al die
So it’s ok if we see red tonight you’ll bring your fist down to the floor
And I’ll piss off the sky
And what about the girl who stole the bees, well she had dragonfly wings
Became a reference to me
She was excited for the needles and the Novocain
I came expecting only holes

Wide gaping holes

With lights and sound we get in the moment
And we get caught up out on the floor again
With lights and sound we get in the moment
And it’s all alright, it’s all alright

I busted my lip wide open, it split wide open so I sat down on the floor
Outside of the liquor store and let my sanity talk to the night
And he was right when he said I’d see white
from the loss of blood and emergency lights
but we all die so it’s ok if we see red tonight
bring our fists down to the floor and watch our knuckles bleed

With lights and sound we get in the moment
And we get caught up out on the floor again
With lights and sound we get in the moment
And it’s all alright, it’s all alright
Track Name: Row 1
Are you sure that we’re not dead yet? I can’t say
When every day feels like you’re half drunk
Waiting on a hospital bed and every night is a broken thought
Like the bottle tops, smashed and spent on the rocks
In the river where we lost our feet
Then you meet a girl who tells you that she’s gravity
And all you want is to hold her down, down, down
Hold her down, down

Are you sure that we’re not vacant? I’m not all too sure
We both brought knives to a gun fight and lost our eyes
Now we can’t see straight but maybe it’s the wine
Maybe it’s the wine that we kissed off of brown paper bags
In the center of our urban dreams
I saw us lying on rooftops, our backs supine
I saw myself ask you if you were still alive
And you said, I was never that bad in life
And you said, I was never that lost in life
And I said, I was never that good in life
And I said, I was never that found

I want the rights to your romance
And the sequel too, the sequel too

We dream of sirens below us
Track Name: DSP
I don’t want to be another amalgam
I just like the color of coal, and you know,
I found it in the skyline, found it in the ocean
I found it in my eyes, I found it in the cold
So go ahead and drink the salty water
Go ahead and scratch your lovely throat
Go ahead and throw me into the fountain
Now open up your eyes, I’m turning gold

Just throw me in and I will sink
Just throw me in

Can I bring you the sirens
Can I bring you their letters
Can I bring you the ocean
Can I bring you the coastline

I was a rabbit dancing on one foot
I was a fox you snared in the snow
I was the scarf you wrapped around your neck
I was your coat in the winter’s cold
So go ahead and drink the salty water
Go ahead and scratch your lovely throat
Go ahead and throw me into the fountain
Now open up your eyes, I’m turning gold

Just throw me in and I will sink
Just throw me in

Can I bring you the sirens
Can I bring you their letters
Can I bring you the ocean
Can I bring you the coastline

I don’t want to be another amalgam
I just like the color of coal, and you know,
I found it in the skyline, found it in the ocean
I found it in my eyes, I found it in the cold
Track Name: Rebel Monkeys
It starts with lights littered in tiny whirlpools
Sucking towards nothing but leading to
His head deep in her neck
As their feet two step
As their bodies undulate
Arguments with gravity

You were searching for something
That you had all along

And somewhere in between or after
A woman in a white dress is seen behind the trees
Like shutters
Framing her in thoughts of stale sunlight
Like veils of Sunday hangovers
when the air is so bright that the light just seems to be

You were searching for something
That you had all along
