Track Name: We Write The News
1. We Write The News

Oh nothing it seems, could be half as exhausting as fear
But oh my dear I’ve lost my head
And in it’s stead, may I use yours
It seems so well placed just six feet from the floor
I could do such great things
With hoops made from rings, and rings made from pretty things

Do you like to wash off the grey stains
Of a slippery day
Who could catch you in missuse
I get it all the time you could
Never be blamed
Your guessing the dressings
Your guessing the dressings
Your just like them now

You burst through your seams when you let yourself go
Your clothes stay the same as your body mass grows
Till your shirt lets your stomach hang down to your toes
For us all to see with our very own eyes
Please send home the audience and cancel the show
Because the leads pulled a muscle where
Muscles wont grow

Do you like to wash off the grey stains
Of a slippery day
Who could catch you in missuse
I get it all the time you could
Never be blamed
Your guessing the dressings
Your guessing the dressings your
More of the same
Do you like to wash off the grey stains
Of a slippery day

We ought to get together and talk about the weather
Because we know whats true
We write the news
Track Name: Somebody Poisoned The Well
2. Somebody Poisoned The Well

The mailman stood watching as the sky opened up to the ground all around
And shared all it’s feelings on being the ceiling of spies
With no eyes
How are you feeling today, with our lives
The half naked trees
With their half eaten leaves
On the ground all around
The stark naked queens
With their hands on their knees
Wear no crown with their gown
How are you feeling today with our lives

Just brace yourself for cleansing
Don’t be so condecending
My watch is on time
These fools heard the news
That somebody poisoned the well

The pace was exhausting of the race we were watching
From the side, still alive
Incase you were costing us all we were hoping to say
With our signs
So how are we feeling today with our lives

With the last of us gone
The rain will become the new gold
The new gold
Track Name: Maxwell Burned The Windowsill (But Never Crossed Over)
3. Maxwell Burned The Windowsill (But Never Crossed Over)

She said I don’t know
I don’t know how you sleep alone
When the ghost is in the other room
Thinking he’s unknown
That’s when he had to let them know
That all of the stories that they
Were telling out loud
Would need a change of their aweful tone

But Maxwell knew the past was through
He counts down the alphabet changing the mood
And all of it’s new, till all of it’s through
Maxwell knew the past was through
For all the words he never could describe

Till his mother found a life to take
And she drowned him in the local lake alive
We smell all the ashes
And channel the masses
The windowsill was burning still
When Maxwell had to go

Your lazy feelings settle on
Only after dark
And he stays away
But you feed the lions anyways
Can you sense the healing
Bet it on
The dog who barks so unafraid
At the shallow mountain everglades

Till his mother found a life to take
And she drowned him in the local lake alive
We smell all the ashes
And channel the masses
The windowsill was burning still
When Maxwell had to go
Track Name: God Is A Country Club, The Devil Is A Used Car Salesman
5. God Is A Country Club, The Devil Is A Used Car Salesman

Oh how’d your mother grow her muscles big and strong
So un-lady like bitten in the night
By the spiders hiding in the walls
In her pantyhose she falls asleep
That’s when she eats them through her nose
She found her fathers graveyard
And dealt a card for every single stone

But she must feel so alone
She even lost the game
She must feel so alone
And to her shame
All the corpses feel exactly the same

So shave off her leg hairs and strap on her blinders
This town is filled what candy shops
And naked horney traffic cops
I much prefer the truth
But it’s hard to find reptiles in the zoo
They lay around fat and lazy
And it’s driving me crazy

The kitchen table is held together
By a rope that’s way to long
And we were sitting limp
With apple splits
On a trip where we all sing along

But she must feel so alone
She even lost the game
She must feel so alone
And to her shame
All the corpses feel exactly the same

So shave off her leg hairs and strap on her blinders
This town is filled what candy shops
And naked horney traffic cops
I much prefer the truth
But it’s hard to find reptiles in the zoo
They lay around fat and lazy
And it’s driving me crazy
Track Name: Coney Island
6. Coney Island

Where’d you learn to dance
I’ve been watching you through the walls
In all my best attempts at acting out
While the city sleeps
With the flowers and the trees
I can still hear your feet moving so swift like a breeze
I can feel it through the ceailing when you fall to your knees

So how’d you cross the fence
Through the junkies and police
To the apple with no seed left to find
Because somewhere in these streets
There’s a place you need to see
Where I know you’ll make the best out of all of your dreams
Where you’ll never take a stance about ripping your seams

I’m figuring out you’re wiser than to
Take it all off at Coney Island
Am I wasting my time
And all of my best lines on you

Where’d you learn to dance
I’ll escort you through the halls
And watch you on your way to the park
It’s such a lovely time
When the leaves all change for fall
But it’s best admired hiding in the dark
Where we’ll be surrounded by trees
You’ll warm up soon enough
When your out of the breeze

I’m figuring out you’re wiser than to
Take it all off at Coney Island
Am I wasting my time and all of my best lines
On a child with to much pride
I’m figuring out you’re wiser than to
Take it all off at Coney Island
Are you figuring out I’m never what I seem
Figure it out I’m lying through my teeth
Track Name: Greek Copy Of A Copy Of A Roman Hero
7. Greek Copy of a Copy of a Roman Hero

We’re elloping these walls
But I watched all your beauty it followed me through
Past all the paintings and into the other room
The fleas will follow the rat pack
As they hollow out all of the food
Lets just indian dance in the rain without our shoes

It’s been a long time coming
Against your patients


The wind is falling out from beneathe the wings of the plane
My beard may be showing but the rest of me is tucked away
The wind is falling out from beneathe the wings of the plane
My eyes may be glowing but the rest of me is tucked away

Slippy slippy ice, is trapping the smoke in the air


We were hoping the fall would just
Carry from autumn on through
Then the winter soon came
And lost all respect we retained
So we get lost in the walls
It is all just something to do
Lets just indian dance in the rain without our shoes
(against your patients)

The wind is falling out from beneathe the wings of the plane
My beard may be showing but the rest of me is tucked away
The wind is falling out from beneathe the wings of the plane
My eyes may be glowing but the rest of me is tucked away

Slippy slippy ice, is trapping the smoke in the air
Track Name: Olive Trees
8. Olive Trees


Why bother, you’ve lost time anyways
You’re the second one to see
How the hours turn to days
When the momment that it happened we all
Stood still for a glimpse
But this thinking man
Was never meant to think alone
In the cold showers of his home
He’s revealing but he’s sly
And he never leaves, no he never leaves
Her alone after five
The sun is coming up now but
From here I can’t see but
I hear it like thunder as it
Blankets the olive trees

What’d they say
What’d they say
What’d they say
How they know
How they know
How they know
How they know
How to hold on
Again
