Track Name: Alex
I'm glad baby's learning how to talk
I'm sure baby soon gonna walk
Moon's been shining on the rooftop
You're still with us but then that's no shock.

But something tells me that it's no secret
All the stuff that you've been keeping,
Alex.

I've been listening to the song you sent
You were mumbling but that time's well spent.

I've seen you yell in musty basements
Fell in churches up on stages,
Alex.

Who are you, who am I
I'll see you, but I will hide
I'll be at your shows, and sing the same
Then you'll be gone, but I'll know your name,
Alex.
Track Name: Jessie
We drove Jessie, your car
because you dozed off, your body was someplace real real far.
Her power caught me off guard.
We almost crashed on the way to subway, in the mall.

I was so busy falling for you
I was feeling dead.
He was so busy floating
not a worry in his head.

A hundred miles down,
replete with pain.
A hundred miles down,
it was our first date.

We drove Jessie, your car
because you dozed off, your body was someplace real real far.
Her power caught me off guard.
We almost crashed on the way to subway, in the mall.

I took a picture of you
then the air sucked you right out.
I took a picture of myself
then I was having doubts.

You were halfway down
when I caught up.
Track Name: Shady Birds
Baby I'm sending all my love to you south,
with those birds who ate my words
that came out of my mouth.

I sent them once, I sent them twice,
never got to you.
Now that it's starting to warm up,
what can I do.

Ask me why I don't mind
tallying the days.
Ask me why I feel fine knowing clearly that there's
No more walls, no more walls,
I can call,
with my wondrous silence.

Baby I'm sending all my love to you south,
with those birds who ate my words
that came out of my mouth.

No more walls, no more walls,
I can call,
with my wondrous silence.
Track Name: Library
I wont see anyone,
just myself and the people,
passing by in the library.

You're in another place,
high up on some shelf.
I try to call out,
but you don't hear me.
So I'm passing time in the library.

Let the slow drunk wind carry,
my message to you.
Let my wordly words bury
actions ensued.
Now I'm passing out in the library.
Track Name: Red Rover
He treated me kindly after it was over.
He didn't just give me the cold shoulder.

We'll hold hands till we feel okay,
I'm not quite sure when I'll feel okay.
Play red rover and hope to die
when I run across to the other side.

He treated me kindly after it was over.
Can, can you please fill me in when I'm older.

I wasn't really ready when I went into the store,
he held me very close and he held open the door.
I tried to walk away but I'll take the broken cord
I tried to walk away but I threw it on the floor.

Maybe I filled it up too fast,
it all spilled out all over my lap.
Play red rover and hope to die
when I run across to the other side.

Red rover, oh red rover,
please send someone else right over.
Red rover, oh red rover,
my grip gets tight as you get closer.
Red rover, oh red rover,
break through me, then we'll call it over.
Track Name: Sweater
I've only seen one picture of you
and it's the picture
that's blurred
and crumpled out of view.

Today I'm feeling languid and sick
and my mind's anxious
but I know it's probably realer that way.

I see you from an angle
where dark colors untangle.
You're candent
and you appeal to me.

If you think you can know me better,
pull a thread from my only sweater.
I'll tell you
it pulls apart.
Track Name: Yeah, No
Don't you know that you've got a lot to learn,
I don't know that it's gonna work out.
Don't you know that I've got a lot to learn,
I should really check you out.

Treading slow in a dark, dark room
(treading up and over you)
Take my kiss that I send you
(twist the knife and run right through)
I won't see you but take my word for it
(for I tried but then I learned to quit)
cause I don't really give a shit.

We should take it day by day
as the trash men take their trash away.
I should know just how to start,
deal with my past and press restart.

Treading slow in a dark, dark room
(treading up and over you)
Take my kiss that I send you
(twist the knife and run right through)
I won't see you but take my word for it
(for I tried but then I learned to quit)
cause I don't really give a shit.
Track Name: New Star
New star is upon us,
you don't know what to say.
New star is shining,
you want to say hello.

I want to be around New Star all the time.
I don't know to look away,
I stay, I stay, I stay.

New star can do anything,
but also plays the rules.
New star likes to look you in the eye,
you try to keep your cool.

I don't, but I do anyway come back to you.
I don't know to look away,
I stay, I stay, I stay.

New star used to be in space,
new star talks slower these days,
and now has found the ground,
New star takes you all around town
for days.

Can't walk away.
