Track Name: Car 2
call me down
tell me what I’ve been missing
now the rain is gone
wrapping around the wheels of my car

if you’ve come to see how far i’ve gone
its not enough to keep your place
Track Name: Obsess then Regress
obsess then regress to familiar distress
memorized patterns of your favorite dress
take comfort in knowing that you'll be home soon
to help me to finish what i've already started

its not at all funny but i know that its true
when my head starts to hurt its not hurting for you
time has grown shorter and i hardly knew
that i'm too strong to pray for that garden i started

its fun to pretend so i paint myself red
twisting and turning and staining the bed
where we used to sleep with no youth to lament
satisfied knuckles and cars painted red

see patterns in weather its happening soon
rain wraps around the soles of your shoe
take comfort in knowing that i'll be home soon
to finish the work that i've already started
Track Name: Company
dreams of a cascading tree
in the passenger seat
keeping me company
while you sleep
in the backseat
and i'll drive through the night
soon we will pass the most beautiful glass
like you dear
but much older
and i'll drive through the night
speak in tongue
and wake to the morning
Track Name: Winter Perfume
i left for the city to see if your thoughts had steadied,
but you caught me in a restless state.
i wanted to breathe in newer kinds of medicine
to kill the waves of retrograde.

if winter comes early, i'll sit in my room
drinking cups of strong coffee and snorting perfume.
i'll be damned if i ever return to my fate
Track Name: New York Brides
passing worn cups on silver trays
nevermind new york brides and bridges made
from long decay and warm embrace

i'll be leaving soon
with matches and a shaded view
i walk in the shade of you
with glances always misconstrued
Track Name: Canadian Whiskey
i've been thinking lots about
the kinds of words i'd toss around
to trick you into telling me
that its okay for me to leave

i've been thinking lots about
the way the city looks this time of year
its not like here
i hear the people tend to disappear
Track Name: Bite My Hands
i've been caught before
thinking thoughts you can't ignore
when i'm not permanently sure
it comes in waves of words
and smoking all the time just leaves me overjoyed

if you'd seen me in younger days
when people wouldn't fold for four years more
i'd have traced the bottle back
to your warm breath
and stopped it then but you were overyjoyed

and it never goes the way you want
equip yourself with safer forms of travel through december

bite my hands while you lay on the ground
grabbing hold of the memories that keep me around
don't believe in forgetting, fucking bathe in the sound
till i feel the concrete
reminders of what i've done once before
hurt the host for a while then a dozen times more
i'm still drunk all the time and its all still a mess
feeling worried its common to care for me less
than i do about you
Track Name: Garden 2
cut my skin with bad luck
and bleed into my grave
i've lived in left assuming
i'm far too dumb to play the game

hold my tongue so tightly
and shape the wound with developing mistakes
its all too common
to breed and break from all my favorite names

don't you feel like its coming too soon
swallow with caution and see what i'd do
if its not use forgetting i'll sit in my room
drinking cups of strong coffee and snorting perfume
if i could i'd get married in my head like a tomb
then i'd feel something new

treat me to some true love
turn 22 with blood on the heels of my boots
dig up my garden
i've had for years growing all that i thought to be true
Track Name: Blue
and if you're waiting for a sound
leave the keys where they were found
why don't you wait you inside the house
and watch the wedding from the ground
lets watch the wedding from the ground

separated at the birth
our plot lines melt into the earth
i wonder where we found it first
its something new then something burned
its something new then something burned

i woke up in the strangest woods
and missed the city much too soon
i didn't see you when i could
estranged and walking into blue
estranged and walking into blue
