Track Name: Siding
i've got my dreams
i will steal you
your sister comes home to both of our shoes
and i'll die a happy man with you

i've got my wings
my daughter lives
my friends are drunk, they all will stay to watch the sun drip
and i'll die a happy man with what you can give
Track Name: Cloth(e)
my mother said it would be fine to stay up late tonight
as long as we woke up before nine
but i watch you from my couch, i watch you fall
i never knew what turning could do to you, i am so small

you send me plugs for the days i turn my head
you say your back is sore, you could use more springs in your bed
but now both of ours are gone and we hate them for having sons
how we'd love our own, but we'd have to spend less time sleeping alone

so tell me, cousin, what's it like with him living high?
what's a man like when he hates his land, his son, his bride?
he said he'd speak to you on a weekend when we're not tired
and preach you love she won't receive, not even over wire

and this clothing on our wrists kept us alive
like it was hours and minutes and seconds with our cups bone dry
and i swear on my grave one day it'll leave
that the lord above will keep you company while we lose sleep

and the trees grow out of your bones
it'll leave, we'll be alright
and the lines lay paths for our thoughts
it'll never leave, but we'll be fine
Track Name: Barnabas
i always thought i would wake up again
it's like everything i wanted and meant is met with hands and 'repent'
i never do

so show me pictures of our past
and let me know where the album was last
i'll try to figure out why i left so soon

i know you thought i would wait
at least until it was too late
and now i work with them
and now i'm searching again
Track Name: Kallen
i told her we were learning
i told her with my back faced towards the start
told us we were learning
'dear god, have mercy on their hearts'
he told her he ain't learning
yeah, he said that she doesn't know
well, he told him he'd be learning
and set firs to the marrow within his bones

you know, i used to call that boy by his middle name
you know, i used to tell that boy nearly everything

i said you can turn it off
i said you can turn it and leave it off
but i caught you speaking
and i asked you kindly to stop
see, i find it funny that we are learning down below
but i think it'll be alright
see, i've got my ducks all in a row

you know, i climbed up out of the well so i could see you smile
you know, i climbed up out the well so i could die

i can say what i want to
yeah, i can tell him when i feel the call
because i've seen and i've heard of
what you've never seen at all
and i told you i'm leaving
yeah, i'll take my things, i'll leave you here
'well, don't leave while i am speaking'
your body's shaking up a storm do you have it clear?
no

you know, i had to die that day
i felt the cold above my shoulder
let it slip away
Track Name: Bear
i'm playing in puddles
when i was made to sail the ocean blue
i'm playing in puddles
when i was made to tell the truth

now you watch until you're content
then you tear down these buildings like they were made for it
you watch me move across the floor
until i find myself a girl who would be glad to show me the door

i've torn it off my walls
i've broken my body blue
he's sad and he's scared and he backs himself away
as he watches me out of the womb

now you watch until you're content
then you tear down these buildings like they were made for it
you watch me move across the floor
until i find myself a girl who would be glad to show me the door

if she ain't god, she'll breathe
but she's looking back at me and i can tell, she's trying to be
but she can't, no she can't and the air looks as steam
Track Name: Sleeping on my Stomach
pull weeds from my bed
shave weeds from the back of my head

burn it, throw it into the sea
call my friends, tell them you choose them over me

pull weeks from my wall,
from the red i wish i could call
shake weeks because i couldn't care less for you
or even for me

burn it, throw it into the sea
call my friends, tell them you choose them over me

it calls me
it haunts me

i came and i saw and i was conquered
how i wish my sins were the same
hold my hand, mother
hold my hand and pull me back
tell me how every man is to blame

it calls me
it haunts me
he calls me
he haunts me
Track Name: Runner
sides, wanted to say it was not true
you leave her too slow
your belt stays used
you can just take your time
perk up, you ghost, this all stays outside

can you speak up? i think you talk far too softly
are you angry? walk home, ride home, try home.
'you'll be lonely for the rest of your life'
leave me, sibling
i think it might be better if we talked softly

hide, wanted to say it was not true
you help me too slow
it's loss or pursue
you can just take your time
you're built like a bird, but you are a song, you are a rhyme

can you wear hers like i do? all that i can see is light shoes
we can climb hills, grind mills, cry till blades run deep through
lonely for the rest of my life, least i had t(w)o
call on voights, is she on your chest? i don't know you

you call, i wait, you drown away
you're just a runner
Track Name: Praytell
'hey man, why don't you just wait?'
hey girl, why don't you just stay
your brother waits for you by the door like some sort of dog
'why don't you just take a stand?'
i am no man, i'm not like my father is/was, you're more like him
your brother waits for you by the door
i hold it open, see which you hate more
is it worth it? all the cash you'll/you spend to drive/fly?
1/3/6 month(s) what i've been through
1/3/6 month(s) written or spoken to you
maybe someday we'll be like them

your brother waits for you by the door like some sort of dog
you know, i wait for you by the door like some sort of dog
Track Name: Fly Fishing
thanksgiving, thanks for living, thanks for dying alone
because we both know i couldn't stand
seeing another man with you growing old
but come to think, i never think like you did
not even now, not even when i want to believe, more than anything,
i know
where you are

where you are
giving, thanks for living, thanks for dying alone
because we both know i couldn't stand
seeing another man with you growing old

peg, i don't think i'm ever gonna be strong enough, fast enough
but you wait for me to be until i am

where you are

i just can't see myself eating/drinking/sleeping/breathing alone

so i drive down buck running from the rise or the cub
he can't hold his book up straight
he can't even find pages or name saints
what a namesake
and every year i contemplate where you've been
rather than where you are
because i know you're not giving thanks
you're not given thanks
Track Name: Rover
do you know what it's like to sleep next to your wife
and dream of days when you have to relay 'i miss your side'?

do you really think that it would solve all of your problems?
it's not just me, its you, i just never wanted them
if you left me, i would leave you
it's so cliche, but i'll follow through
if you left me, i would leave you
it's my hard soul, everything is soon

it was you, i left you outside in the cold
i left you out with no control
i was so scared
i was so bold

can you find my peace? it's all i have my soul to keep
if i have anything, my better half, my soul to keep

you think everything changes over night
you have lost me, i have lost my sight

do you really think that it would solve all of your problems?
it's not just me, its you, i just never wanted them
if you left me, i would leave you
it's so cliche, but i'll follow through
if you left me, i would leave you
it's my hard soul, everything is soon
Track Name: Cornerstone
i keep picking up my legs
running, retrieving
is it purpose or boredom that drives?
i look up at you just in time to see you laugh
finally stare back at me
fold your hands in your lap

and the burden is yours
but if i wanted, could we lie?
'you ask for sleep, take something, breathe'

i'm not near as found as you think i am
i'm not near as profound as you
and if i could sing, i would never stop
but unfortunately, i never have enough crop

and the burden is yours
but if i wanted, could we lie?
'you ask for sleep, take something, breathe'
Track Name: Fifty-One
blend it together
it was like falling in a dream
you try and tie it
can you tell my eyes from my seams?
would you follow me if this were a tunnel?
the colors, the red, it's a burden on my dreams

i know you will carry it on
because you've carried it on thus far
carry it on
well i don't buy it
carry it on

end it together
we're falling out of our dreams
you tore it to pieces
because you couldn't tell my eyes from my seams
bill, don't follow me
i'll open my door now
the colors, the black, it's everything i wanted
and everything i'll ever need
