Track Name: What Home?
I felt far from home
I found you like you found me, all alone
when you were unprepared
Somewhere in my soul
I felt something happening
I heard rock n roll
I heard you everywhere
and I was unprepared
And I swear on my life
that a dream came true
when you swore on your life
that you heard me too
won’t hear nothing new, just you
You said, like a spark
I found you like you found me
asleep in the dark
but you were waking up
What home do you miss?
Mine’s a dream like everything that came before this
and now I’m waking up
And I swear on my life
now that I’m awake
that I swear on my life
I wont run away
I finally want to stay
I hope these days stretch out like spring
across forever
I hope we stay in love
and chase the sun together
And I swear on my life
that a dream came true
when you swore on your life
that you heard me too
won’t hear nothing new
just you
Track Name: Lowlife
We cleaned out your room today
and filled up garbage bags
with all the things you didn’t want to take
like all the pictures of your mom
and of your little sister’s kid
and all the girls that used to love you

How did things get so bad?
We knocked and it is not our fault you wouldn’t let us in
you slept in garbage on the floor
while you were living in your head
with all the girls that used to love you

We found the journals that you lost under your bed
with all those nasty thoughts you started
and abandoned inches in
and with the movements of your pen
we started hating you again
like all the girls that used to love you

No one’s asking you to close your mouth
there is so much that we need to talk about
and we’re all begging you to help us figure out
how you wore your heart out

We cleaned out your room today
and filled up garbage bags
with all the things you had to get away from
all those pictures of you when
you thought you’d always stay a kid
and all the girls that used to love you
Track Name: My Blue
You threw your hands up
waving fingers in a white wheat field
somewhere in blue sky
somewhere in my mind

What do I say to make that feeling stay?
What do I say to make it go away?

I want you to smile like you used to
my blue girl
Could you shine like you used to?
my blue

You slid your hand out
the summer window into windy world
somewhere in sunshine
somewhere in your mind

What do I say to make that feeling stay?
What do I say to make it go away?

I want you to smile like you used to
my blue girl
Could you shine like you used to?
my blue

You threw your hands up
Track Name: Iris
Iris, still at the beginning
open up and let it shine into you
if you can be strong
if you can be delicate
and sing inside the ugly, silly truth
I know the world will open up for you

Iris, what’s there inside you ringing?
open up and let the sound fill the zoo
if you can be strange
you can be anything
and give yourself to whichever you choose
I know the world will open up for you

Iris, don’t see before believing
open up and let it sink into you
if you can be warm
you’ll make a friend of them
and say hello to what you can’t see through
I know the world will open up for you

Iris, still at the beginning
open up and let it shine into you
if you can be strong
if you can be delicate
and sing inside the ugly, silly truth
I know the world will open up for you
Track Name: Black Holes
I cried until I felt the same
tried to put nothing in my brain
I read I read the page again
I don’t remember what it said

But I only tried to do
what I thought was right for you

You let the monsters have a place
you wiped the smile off your face
I wish I wish I floated in
the sunny cells inside your skin

But I only tried to do
what I thought was right for you

I was always growing old
but God I didn’t want it to show
and none of us can fight it now
all my dreams were just black holes
and God they’re gonna swallow me whole
and none of us can fight it now

Here it comes
and none of us can fight it now

Now my dreams are all black holes
and God they’re gonna swallow me whole
and none of us can fight it now
Track Name: Gasoline Rainbows
You were long in front
of the dying sun
you were dumb in love
and that was all there was
and shadows touching shadows
on the parking lot
somewhere over gasoline rainbows

Through the in-betweens
of shaking soldier leaves
there came a glowing thing
to paint you tangerine
and shadows touching shadows
crawled across your face
and somewhere over gasoline rainbows

Underneath the great
endless shape parade
you watched a dream you made
unfold and fade away
while shadows touching shadows
rolled inside your eyes
swirling ‘round like gasoline rainbows
Track Name: Faucet Head
Stop talking to yourself
you make me nervous
preachin’ on your porch all night
like you were Jesus

You’re more like a holy ghost
your voice is always pressed against my window
and even when I shut you out
you hang around

Now I think about your mind
like it’s a faucet
that ran out of your mouth in rhymes
until you lost it

Man you’re such a silly sight
the way you spit hot lava
underneath the street lights
and nothing’s gonna shut you down
you hang around

Faucet Head
Track Name: Miracle
You spun the globe around
asked “Where should I be?”
stuck your finger in the great unknown
and hoped to find green
and now you’re standing in a bright new city
and I hope you find your miracle
that stops the spinning

On the morning it came out that you were leaving
I wondered if I ever had it in me
and you were standing like a broken building
and I thought
you are not a miracle, you are empty

You are not a miracle, you are empty
don’t you wanna leave just for the sake of leaving?

You called this place a prison
you know you thought you were a riot
you said your soul blew off your body
and now you have to find it
and you blew away

You are not a miracle, you are empty
don’t you wanna leave just for the sake of leaving?

You are not a miracle, you are empty
I’m not gonna leave just when I’m almost happy
Track Name: Better
Your heart is somewhere in your chest
who knows exactly where it is?
you’re happy there inside your head
where your brain works like a TV set

Where you’re not scared
to be alone in the dark
inside your head
it’s light out

Your heart is somewhere in your past
you know exactly where it is
you watch it there behind your lids
who knows when you’ll come back again?

get better

Where you’re not scared
to be alone in the dark
inside your head
it’s light out
and you’re better

your heart is somewhere in the west
someplace you haven’t been to yet
somewhere you’ve always thought about
something you’ve always lived without

Where you’re not scared
to be alone in the dark
inside your head
it’s light out
and you’re better
