Track Name: Sea Diver
I'll try to slow it down
Lay down the tracks
Slow moving bodies
They lost the knack

But I, haven't quite yet
No I, got dust up my sleeve
Yeah I, haven't lost it yet
I don't know, I don't know

It's a shock to you
Add surprise to me
I haven't got nerve yet
The nerve yet
Spit on a grave?
It's no longer sacred!
He dug out years and years ago
He's looking around, alright?!

And I won't entrap you
And I won't depress
I haven't got the stomach for that
No I don't
A lost cause, I lost you
And I haven't bothered to look
Searching around, alright.
Track Name: Rain in England
Must rain a lot where you're from
I didn't mean to hurt you
I didn't mean to say useless things
No not at all

But maybe I'll feel better
Once I go away for a while
And repeat what you said until it all makes sense

Must rain a lot where you're from
I didn't mean to hurt you
I didn't mean to say anything
No nothing at all

But maybe I'll feel better
Once I go away for a while
And repeat what you said until it all makes sense
Track Name: Strops
Your eyes run deep like a hole in my favorite couch
Whatever that means sometimes
I get the fact that you lie for kicks
But a kick is just a fad so come back to real life
It hurts a lot when you look away
But it hurts a lot more, when you go my way
And pleased he is to see me fail
Eyes go shrunk go pale come on lets go.

You're my strops (etc)

And stop! tell me whats the big deal
We can leave if you can
If you can't then I won't
If you won't then I will
So leave don't leave don't leave
THE TRUTH IS:
its a dark dark house
with an owner who doesn't like to leave the lights on
he keeps em out.

You're my strops (etc)

So stop.
Track Name: Crowd Work
When does the tide fall?
Expecting it way too soon
The crows for lunch, where do they leave?
Is the feeling always there?

Maybe I'll change for the summer
I'll just return in the fall
You know you're hard to impress
The most difficult of all my friends.

And it advances
Into the night
Sinking it way down
Always. Never right.

(in a different tone)
When does the tide fall?
Expecting it way too soon
The crows for lunch, where do they leave?
Is the feeling always there?

Maybe I'll change for the summer
I'll just return in the fall
You know you're hard to impress
The most difficult of all my friends.
Track Name: Erik Landed
How can I?
How can I get away from you now?
Cause I've been losing sleep
From here to now
It's a real fine mess
That I would like to rid myself of
Cause if not for you
I guess its me
And there's only one thing that I gotta be here for you...
And I guess that I'm crossed.

Shoulders down! We've reached the end again!
Watching the fighter planes shoot down my hopes like a 52 in some older wars.

And if I had the time. I would change the locks
Go back to sleep, and wish for better luck.
But I don't
No I don't
No I don't!

How can I....How can I get away from you?
(repeated?)
Track Name: Country Trails
Wearing me down
Is an act of despair
Which follows you around
Wherever you'll be

I'm locking your eyes
To the back of my bike
To go for a ride
On country trails

(chorus)
But where have you gone?
And what will it be?
Is it the tired eyes?
Or the painted sea?
Is it the light from the roof?
When you swallowed your teeth?
Just bring it back, and we'll go north again.

Stop wearing me out
It came from within
I heard another voice
I saw another grin
Whatever it wants
Whatever you need
Just feed me a line
And hold the can up to speak

(chorus)
Track Name: Zepplin
Detecting whats real to me
I shiver right up in sound
You could see me through your TV
I wish I could be laughing now
Heard you screaming shaming my name and a Zeppelin flying through the air
It doesn't call to me but it knows my name
And that's all I need to know to run

Chase him down in black and white
There's lines to be had on the monitors before the words could start
I could hear the sound of a million planes
The zeppelin only comes around when we board our doors expect no other attack, I could hear the sound but it's far too late
Track Name: Nine Lives
I don't know what it all means to me
Why can't we just turn away when we leave?
I don't want to say this to you
No I don't wanna know

Time is not on our side this time
What I bled is not yours is it mine?
Do you wanna stay an hour again?
Are you mine this way?

And I don't wanna have to make up excuses
I felt this before and I'll feel it again soon enough
(repeat)

I don't know what it all means to me
I don't know what it all means to me
Yeah, I don't know
Oh no.
Track Name: Destroyed
There's darker winds that blow through the skies
And I'd like to know you here sometimes
Never noticed it
But I want something more this time

It's time you claim we don't have
And I'd like to wait and understand
Can you show me again
Just get it once and I'll never have to ask again

I'm losing my head I'll see you again
But it won't be quite the same
You tell me you heard of something pretty
I want you to destroy
But I'd rather be dead than to be with you again
Track Name: Void Take
I thought the rain would come in waves
And I thought the same thing happened to the others
But I won't blame you not now not ever
No I won't

And I thought of change postponed due to weather
And I know to blame if I start to feel the pressure
But I won't blame you not now not ever
No I won't

And I felt the same when I saw you change
And I felt the same when I saw you change
And I don't think I feel the fucking same but I guess that I should!
Track Name: Bored Leaders
We're walking around
Must have lead them for a couple days in harsher winters than we're
Used to, want to be so close to you
I hear ya, sprained your knee
Tryna make it to the coast but on my lead
We're only moving backwards

And around again
I'm never too opposed into reading things that we're
Used to
Wanna be so close to you
I hear ya, sprained your knee, tryna make it to the coast but oh my liege,
We're only going back, we're going back
And I know you don't love me no more.

Bring it back!
Track Name: This is Worse Than Now
Lately I've been seeing through the corner of my eye
That's making me believe that maybe if I really tried
I could see through you, and make you disappear for good

Cause lately you've been distant and it's harder to compare
No longer far apart but i swear it's nothing like this
No one cares and no one will. No one ever will

You don't call it anything so nothing is the thought
You choked it out of life and yet it's not enough
Could you see through me? Transparent yet you don't know what to do

And I tried I hoped, for better days to come
I couldn't leave you here, no I couldn't be undone
Just don't turn around, just don't go
Just don't turn around, just don't go

She said "this is worse than now"
She said "this is worse than now"
She said "this is worse, is worse than now"
And I can't even think, no I can't think at all
Cause you're making me stand yeah, I'll stand tall
I could see through you and make you disappear for good!
Track Name: One Man's Trash
I never saw the way you looked
When you're lookin' at the eyes of another
And it's really making me
Hoping that I could dream when it's over

Cause I really can't stand it
I don't think I can take anymore
Is this what you said before?
Just tell me what you said before.

And I don't want this
I don't want this a single bit
But you left me here
You left me here and now I just don't know
I don't know!
If I should go, if you really can.
Track Name: Make It Obvious
Make it obvious
So obvious to you
Relating a picture, sending it back
Now I know what to do
So oblivious, I haven't got the slightest idea
What to think, got a trigger with an empty blank
And it's pointed at me

And it's pointed at you and me
And it's pointed at me and you
And it's pointed at me and you
And it's pointed at you

Make it obvious
And try it when you really want to
The river is deep, the bottom breaks through again
Just try it again
Save your consciousness, for a thousand other bright ideas
And save your time, on loaded blanks
And its pointed at us again

And it's pointed at me and you
And it's pointed at me and you
And it's pointed at me and you
And it's pointed at you
Track Name: Always Wasted
You gotta help me
Feels I've been here for hours
7:30, and the lights get dimmer on the walkways
I got a word for this, and you should know it by now
Time to dwell, and keep your mind from swinging late

It doesn't hurt me, feels like I could find another
I'd even settle for a lie, I'd even settle for a lie
But you travel in narrow paths
and the answer is always "no"
And i'm trying to reach you, I'm trying I'm trying
But the question was always vague

You gotta help me
Feels I've been here for hours
It's getting worst for me, the times we waste are getting later
But I'm careful with this no matter the pressure and it's always....
alright!!
Track Name: 1/2 Eaten Battery
A longer sentence a dried out way
To make you say today is alright
It's just alright, nothing more nothing less
and you got nothing more to say
don't bury me under a washing machine
built from under my knees something else
i can't breathe with you breathing down me cmon lets get right out of here

i got another word for you
its caught right under my eyes
i'm taking all the things you say
making me believe their lies
Track Name: Acidemic
Spent hours on the campus concrete trying to make use of my time
Twiddling thumbs staring eyes hoping something good would happen by chance.
I'm sure i could make use of it by doing something productive
Like condoning group sessions and seeking a brighter student's help
But I'd rather be burning gasoline out on the country road
thinking of nothing doing nothing all the time all around

Back to pointless conversations about it
What have we talked about all this time?
Can you show me a figure or a chart?
Make me feel bad that I don't know what we're talking about
Oh how I wish i could be somewhere else right now
Wading my feet through the shadowy grass
But I'm still here in class thinking of nothing doing nothing all around and I don't...know.

Tired of waiting tired of planning
The days go by as slowly as ever
You know I can't run in the same crowd that you run in it goes round and round.....
Track Name: Void Take (Acoustic)
lyrics same as electric, except i don't cuss
