Track Name: Critter
you feel a little tired all the time
cloudy eyed and smog minded
find ways to stay inside
and sleep inside

you think you've got some plans for moving on
making up the words as you go along
caught in static love
restrained by tongue

making enemies with your envy
makes you the life of the whole party
and then you wake up in smear-eyed make up
all your hearts have magnetic stop and starts

theres something about the phone that makes you cry
illuminating glow, encircled mind
try to stay inside
and sleep inside

puffing out your scales and teeth
and moving in the sunny heat
while eating critters in between
and soon you catch me swimming thru
the water with the dangerous hue
its cooling sweet and crystal blue
then wake up in a sorrow sweat
and drink the water by my bed
repeating dream still in my head
and later in the grocery line
i see you there in clear disguise
i give you yours but i don't get mine
Track Name: Ghost Town
all along a fruit tied round a string
but before too long you'll forget everything
not through the front, please go around

to reassess and bring yourself to dream
of rude world sounds and a vapor on the sea
please come inside and look around
see whats left in an old ghost town

you never were a strong believer in the first place
an array of dormant stormy weather keeps you guessing
not through the front, please go around

you're waking up with no comfort in your own
free formed thoughts while 300 miles from home
