Ah a shallow tribe is born
Ah kid counterpart
Nah he hollowed out his heart
Ah oh now he wants

More than we have
More than there is
More than we have
More that there is
More than exists

Ah sewer watch was shown
Ah only 10 episodes
Ah it's everything I feel
Ah in a mask of mirrors

More than I have
More than there is
More than I have
More than I can give

More than I have
More than there is
More than I have
More that there is
More that exists

The Joke Explained

I never held your gaze
I never know my place
I stare at the eyes staring at my face It always ends in a tie
There is no knitting the divide
I cry at the joke explained

Ah but if I had known
If I had known
If I had known
I would have never believed

I never smoked my chain
Whoever measures the crest
Ah they can have my broken chest
It's a staring contest, in a hall of mirrors I sweat tears but I don't ever cry

Ah but if I had known
If I had known
If I had known
I would have never believed

I never knelt at the news
My parrot perished in the pews I climb back into the yolk
It always ends in a tie
There is no knitting the divide
I cry at the joke explained

Ah if I had known
If I had known
If I had known
I would have never believed (x3)

You Satellite

Somehow
A satellite
Can of light
Looks so red
Unbottle the halo
A satellite
Can chains change any failure when all along
Someone can change it
Follow on
Sometimes I don't hate it lately
What I don't know I'm gonna bleed it away
Reunite
The dynamite
Catch it all and reunite
Dynamite how high
I'm more moved by the maybe, it's ok
You can't sing what you can't give away
I've come all this way to hold your hand
I became a calendar while I was waiting
I - I won't live any what you can't give it away
I - I won't miss any what I'm giving away
Don't want to go and I don't want to stay
You satellite (x3)

Taste the Ceiling

I was only asking for a moment of the truth
I can't fight the feeling when I'm hanging out with you Why do I forgive you
Because I get confused
I could never leave behind the part of me that you refuse

Ooh

I was on the ceiling I could almost feel the sun
Try the words in sequence but that's never how it's done Why do our disasters creep so slowly into view
I was only after a friend to follow through
I couldn't lose

I know why you don't really know me I don't think you can call it home
All alone I couldn't taste another thing

I was on the ceiling and I swore it might be true
I could fight the feeling but not quite as well as you

I don't know won't you come and show me I don't think it's what you did before
All alone I couldn't take a case like you

Pickled Ginger

Alone in the zone of the sad
Where no one gives a zig to the zag
I'll never let you rot
I'll never bet you don't know
Some might glisten the knot
I'll never let it show

I know when I'm towing the drag
Where no one gives a zig to the zag
I might have to let you rot
I'm sad to let you go
I can't remember the night
I know what I'll never know
No one tells me how to behave
I'm mowing and I'm growing the grave

No one tells me how to be saved
I'll know till I go to my grave

I'll never let you rot
I'll never bet you don't know
Some might glisten the knot
I'll never let it show

I'll going to let it rot
You'll never guess what's below
Some might glisten the knot
I'll never let it show

Where Do I Begin

 

Alright at least you cried
A point of pride has torn in two
What was we where we meets you
From where we end to where do I begin

We're so alone
We're never alone
Forever in debt to the stomach I get
When things can't be known
Our paths overgrown
From where we end to where do I begin

Why can't we tell when we're in hell
Why can't I say something to make you well
When things can't be seen confined within the dream
From where we end to where do I begin
From what was left behind to you're my friend
I won't ever ever ever fall apart like that again
From where we are to where do I begin

Cold Slope

So so and you don't really care
Stand alone and you're there all day
Some would say you're never really there although you still take up space
I know I know and you know that I know it's a power play
I won't recognize you
I won't recognize you any more

So so and you don't really care
Stand alone and you're there all day
Some would say you're never really there although you still take up space
I know I know and you know that I know it's a power play

And I won't atone take some wild bile wicked entrees over chant lace fade
I'm on a cold slope raking down
Where is our receiver
Look on the phone
You can say what you want or I'll say what you want
Why turn the tape, undertake a weak wall
Summon the stone
I advocate aiming for the weak wall
Summon the stone
You can say what you want but you don't know what you want
I'll say what you want

Now I will say all I will say
I won't recognize you
I won't recognize you any more

King of You

 

Wave after wave wishes unspoken
Talks like a blowtorch
Palms out and frozen
Who said it's easy language is losing
I swallow the steam and claim to be stupid

Nails on the threshold
Moon free don't make me the king of you

Past is a point behind the horizon
Bottom of the flame
Burning the garden

Smiling on the threshold
Moon free don't make me the king of you

Well I'm a soldier for you frightened climbing
Don't make me the king of you

Wave after wishes my boon companion
Talks to the frost but who will cheer the champion

Magnetized

Orchestrate the shallow pink refrigerator drone
Carried in the shadows almost bone
Everyone wastes my time

The moment that you thought would murder motions you wait
Every apprehension alien ache ahh
Everyone wastes my time

Everybody goes I'm
I'm lonely

I sleep underneath a picture that I keep of you next to me
I realize we're magnetized

I realize we're magnetized
I realize we're magnetized
I realize we're magnetized
