Track Name: Daydream
Caught up
Crack crak!
Was it an affliction when I looked at you?
Was it an affection when I looked at you?
Or was it just a daydream?
Was it a reaction when I looked at you?
What an education! when I looked at you
Was it all a daydream?
I've never been so put off in all my life...
Track Name: Sears Roebuck M&Ms
Everybody says we're talkin
About the new sweet thing
Everybody says we're talkin
About the new sweet thing

We're hippin on things and don't deny
We're hippin on things and don't deny it
The new sweet thing

We're flippin our limbs and we're ten feet high, HI-YA
We're flippin our limbs and we're ten feet higher, HI-YA
The most sweet thing
Track Name: Crown
Past the breakout point we wave
Lined up toward the wind, antique
I smirk, I speak

You are a little child, you're just a little child
But I need a man

I don't boast of my collection, no I don't boast
And I see the humor in retreat,
Yea I see the humor in retreat

But you are a little child, you're just a little child,
And I need a man
You're good and you're kind,
But I need a man
Track Name: Aquarium
Please, please, please
Don't you hurt my baby, please
I will sit beside you
At the bottom of the lake
Track Name: Plain Speech
Plain speech at the top of the red house
Plain speech, lit shoes in the courtyard
Plain speech, pusher on a platform
Plain speech

The voice of the vendor at the bike shop
"Throw the tire on the dish"
You, you helped me onto the fixie
And you, you held your arms to the sides

And just for a moment, just for a moment
I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away
But not with this body, not with this body
I got a date in Austin with a friend from the bay

Well it's in my nature to sit and watch the folding bridge
Yea it's in my nature to reach my arms across the ridge
Now I know, now I know

And after I saw you by the bike shop
You touched your thumb to my cheek
And I carried, yea I carried back to the railing
And you, you pedaled off to the east

And just for a moment, just for a moment
I stopped the aching muscle from to carry me away
But not with this body, not with this body
I know that I am leaving but just hold me for a moment
Track Name: Electric Balloon
Oh the lightning
Shopping with electric uh...
Over with the lightning
Thunderunderit
Like the lightning
Motherotherit
Oh the lightning
Shopping with electric balloon
Track Name: PRPL
Don't break the pace, I'm ducking out
A flick a gem back in the house
But so far and farther I don't know how
And so far I need it somehow

If I'm at the point of waking up
Only for the sake of you
A truce, in play

A breath of space, I'm ducking out
Two colors and they're bleeding down
But so far and farther I don't know how
Track Name: Hold U
A yellow shape in the living room that you balance out
You set aside the ingredients as I'm coming to
And I slip into states as your hands slip beneath the dirty plates

I could spend tomorrow in two rows outside the city
And I could stack my boxes in apartments with your drawings on the wall
I could sit in reverie
But what I should do is hold you by the bottom of the hill
So hold me for a moment, bb

I was uptown in the coffee shop when I finally decided
You were dusting off the tablecloth in your parents' house
We're the same, we're the same
But I'm tired of trying to explain it
So what I should do is hold you by the bottom of the hill
So hold me for a moment, bb
Track Name: Judy
Could have used your advice in your absence
You were lit from below, you were vacant
Judy, I don't have the stomach for you, Judy

Move the chair from the room as you cleaned up
Did I hide by the sink as you cleaned up
Judy, I don't have the stomach for you

Did I spread my fingers for you? Or was it just my hazy memory?
Judy, Judy, my life is but a melody

Judy, you're a fallen house, and I don't want to pick you back up
Maybe I don't have the stomach for you...
Track Name: Genesee
Little wooded haven, safety
Rain guard lady, get up
Run around
I heard you from the shady
And I know that it's nothing, but I can't anticipate it
A swallow in the radi, but I know that it's nothing
Run around
Track Name: Ab Ovo
I can't anticipate if I can only see the back
I can't participate if I can only see the back
Put away, put away, put away...
I already put it away
