Track Name: A Cat is Just a Cat
A Cat is just a cat
and a sister's just a sister
But it doesn't make it any less bad
and it doesn't mean that you don't miss her
Cause I know you still miss her

A friend is still a friend
but now your lover's now your ex lover
you need a helping hand
but you don't want to blow your cover

So put away your smile and save it for a rainy day
so put away those stars and save them for when earth goes gray
I want you to know I'll always be there for you
I really want you to know this, I've always cared about you
Track Name: Rusting Wood
If I remember correctly you were a rotting wood
in a red wood forrest from near I lived
Do you remember me dear hollow that I loved
You were the first home that i had ever had

But Oh with time
You'll get your's and I'll
get mine

Like Newton's apple I gave your small world gravity
But you took my life and you took my meaning too
It was a lonely winter and I had no family
Because you had forsaken the tree that gave you love and gave you shelter

But Oh with time
You'll get your's and I'll
get mine
Track Name: Your Shoes are White, Mine are Brown, We've Chosen Different Paths
You are warm
I am cold as freedom
But the hope, like a plant
Is that one day you will grow
Your shoes are white, mine are brown
Mine are all caked up with mud while yours are drowned
But the hope, through each lash
Is that we've chosen different paths

But I will always be there
And even as i start to lose my hair
And as your scars fade from white to black
And as your mind fades to get all you had back
And as your heart breaks cause you realize your all I had
I hope you'll realize
That we've chosen different paths

You are hard, i am much more soft pressed
I mean no harm, while in your values I cant invest
But i know one day we'll wake up
Where the palm trees grow
(Where they grow)
You are oh so much more beautiful
Than any crystal dove i could ever give to you
But I swear, one day we'll wake up
And we will find June

But I will always be there
And even as i start to lose my hair
And as your scars fade from white to black
And as your mind fades to get all you had back
And as your heart breaks cause you realize your all I had
I hope you'll realize
That we've chosen different paths
Track Name: You Let Me Down
One thousand more cigarettes than you could ever smoke
You were the baseline you were the only line you were the calloused coast
You were all that I needed but i needed still to breathe
you were the heart inside my chest you were my veins and for you I'd bleed
(Oh yes I'd bleed)

But you know it's just the times that are getting me down
It's this old suburban life in this old hollow town
And oh the last time you said you'd turn your life around
You let me down
(You let me down)

You were all that i needed but i needed love
I was a lonely boy with a lonely heart and a single ace of clubs
It was my gift to you
I was lost in my basement before you came along
I was alone in my life i was alone i wrote no songs for you
But this one's for you

But you know it's just the times that are getting me down
It's this old suburban life in this old hollow town
And oh the last time you said you'd turn your life around
You let me down
(You let me down)

But you know it's just the times that are getting me down
It's this old suburban life in this old hollow town
And oh the last time you said you'd turn your life around
You let me down
(You let me down)
Track Name: The Whale's Distress Song to His Wooden Lover, She Will Never Answer
Baby soon
You come to me naturally
Head over heels
You mix my heart and you mix it well

I've got no plans
I'm just a whale jumping back into the ocean
Please give me the keys to this sinking ship
And I'll pray I'll be given the skill to deal with it

Head underwater
In a sea of juxtaposition
You owe me a call
But I won't stay up waiting for one
Cause i know how unreliable you are

I've got no plans
I'm just a whale jumping back into the ocean
Please give me the keys to this sinking ship
And I'll pray I'll be given the skill to deal with it

To deal with it
To deal with it
To deal with it
To deal with it


I've got no plans
I'm just a whale jumping back into the ocean
Please give me the keys to this sinking ship
And I'll pray I'll be given the skill to deal with it
Track Name: When You Grow Old
If you lie next to me
With words I thought you'd never say
Even though it's been a short time
I hope you'll grow older
I hope you won't grow colder
And leave my body left for sin

But oh if the winter winds up cold
And our bodies wind up old
Then I know it's you who will lie next to me
And if the summer winds up thick
I hope that you will be quick
In laying your hand on mine

If you walk alone just know
that there will always have been people there
Beside you
And if you will walk alone just know
that there will never be
Another one just like you

And oh if the winter winds up cold
And our bodies wind up old
Then I know it's you who will lie next to me
And if the summer winds up thick
I hope that you will be quick
To lay your hands on top of mine

On top of mine
On top of mine
On top of mine
Track Name: I Want to Feel Inside Your Face
You were alive but I was dead
You played with my heart and you played with my head
And what gave you power to put you so
And what gave you wisdom to fend off the blows

Is it that you feel alive enough to be real
Is it that you feel alive enough to be real
Is it that you feel alive enough to be real
Is it that you feel alive enough to be real

I wanna feel inside your face
You're a sandman made of satan that gates upon my veins
I wanna feel how it feels to be close
But the second you pry me open my heart seems to disappear like a ghost

How does it feel to seem real
How does it feel to seem real
How does it feel to seem real
How does it feel to seem real

How does it feel to know you've got nobody to love you
(and you'll keep saying it and I'll keep telling you that you're wrong)
Track Name: Cast Iron Water Mitten
You were an old ex-lover
who i dreamed about a summer saturday long ago
You were absentee
When my mind is at risk you would only risk me

For water father i know its you that's been pulling me
I'll let you drown me in the deep blue sea

You remind me of a teddy bear i used to have
Who told me i was beautiful on starry nights
You were another Gamagain
Who i used to love ever so slightly with the sight of my hand

Water father i know it's you that's been pulling me
I'll let you drown me in the deep blue sea

In the deep blue sea
In the deep blue sea
In the deep blue sea
In the deep blue sea


Water father i know it's you that's been pulling me
I'll let you drown me in the deep blue sea
Track Name: The Last Tree That Would Ever Sprout in New York City
It was the last song that Sadie would ever hear
her cold fingers were covered in bone
she was statue still waiting for the phone
but her eyes took me to her mind's sad dirt road

It was the last tree that would sprout in a New York street
But it was stifled and cut down in its youth
it was colored green like her honest eyes
and she took photographs to show the world proof

She gave me a place where I could let my thoughts go
She gave me a prison where the world promised to turn just too slow

They were strangers on a train to liberty
it was the last thing Sadie would ever say
But the boy took it to heart and now on his epitaph
Sadie's words, unnoticed, they lay

It was the cold look see gave to the sailor man
She said her soul too belonged to the sea
A tree grows in hell for satan now
It waits to bear fruit for poor old Sadie

She gave me a place where i could let my thoughts go
She gave me a prison where the world promised to turn just too slow
