Track Name: every dawning
it always goes
first as the last
the corners of your eyes
still working for the past

these empty streets
&alley ways
reminders of the distances
our numbered days

morning come quickly
its not at all
the fatal flaw
our dawning days

the overcoat
&simple words
the rooftopgazing
down upon the world

fingertips
on your back
words spilled out
&washed away with what we lack
Track Name: master of none
You always go to the parties
To pluck the feathers off all the birds
On your knees
I will not beg you please

I want your picture but not your words
You know they want it, but there's no verse
On your own
But you can not call it your all

We always wrung our hands too much
We know the reasons, but such and such
On your own,
You will not catch your unknown

We run our fingers together
you know it's easy, the devil's plan
On your own,
You can not call me your all

Jack of all trades
Master of none
Cry all the time
Cause I'm not having fun

You always want to be forgiven
The devil does what you ask of him
On your knees
But you can not; you will not agree
Track Name: final raincall
on/off.
start/stop.
Track Name: mesa
waking to whisper words
i've whispered countless mornings to no one-
words of 'i love you'
to the face turned toward me
arm around arm
there is nothing left for me to do
for me to do...

(you want to have it all...)
Track Name: dance all night
So, I'll dance all night
To the music in my kitchen
Play the songs over again
Play the songs over again
Dancing til we're on the floor
Breathing and breathless
Nothing will wake us
Except the sun in the morning

I've just remembered everyone I've ever loved
Every song I've ever sung
Everyone who's made me smile

And now what I wanna know is
What do I do now?

So, I'll dance all night
To the music in my kitchen
Play the songs over again
Play the songs over again
Dancing til we're on the floor
Breathing and breathing and
Breathing and breathless
And nothing will wake us
Nothing will wake us
Except the sun in the morning
Except the sun in the morning
Track Name: the wait...
when all is said
&all is done
i will leave

my brothers blessing
little sisters' hands i'll leave

&oh
though i breakdown
though i break
i'll never die

&all these days
are numbered
with my guilty kiss

scheming/plotting
co-conspiring
with a kiss

&oh
though i breakdown
though i break
i'll never die

i wont die...
Track Name: wanderin'
don't ever fear
my dear
it is nothing
don't shed a tear
my dear
im just wandering
round
through your skull
like a ghost who is lost
&found
in the voices
calling you back to my arms
my dear
