Track Name: Pieces
Pieces

I was sitting today
In a little place in Montauk just listening to the waves
Something in the air seems a little strange
Either something in my mind
Or the world just kind of changed

Chorus:
{ Must have dropped something running from the rain
And I know I’ve never really been completely sane
But a piece of solidity melted from my brain
I don’t know what but something’s gone
Must have lost another piece of my head
Must have lost another piece of my head
Must have lost another piece of my head}

Come on back mister Jones
I’ve seen you lurking ‘round a couple songs
And I think I’ve seen your face before
When I stared mindlessly at the open door
When everything about myself just couldn’t be found
No one really knows what’s going down
No one really knows what’s going down

:Chorus:

I’ve been silent for too long
I may have forgotten how to speak
But if I stare at you for long enough
My mind just might spring a leak
‘cause words they seem so empty now
you cough them up and they fall right on the ground
you spend your time scribbling on the silence
just for the sake of making sound
just for the sake of making sound

:Chorus:
Track Name: On a Whisper
On a whisper

Sitting on a whisper till the storm subsides
There’s a dank soggy feeling and it sticks to your insides
Thought you were done, but you knew you were wrong
‘Cause you never really like to hold still for too long
Saw you thinking to your self it would be quite swell
If you could buy a little piece of happiness in a nut shell
Checking all their pockets, everyone would hoot and holler
You could get them at the market and they’d only cost a dollar

Go back just a minute
I didn’t understand a word you said
I think you’ve been keeping your mind in our pocket
Instead of in your head
Now slow down just a little
I think we’ve been wasting all of our time
Trying too hard not to fall behind

And you’ve got this strange sort of itch on your brain
Like it’s drying in the corner after left in the rain
I know it’s hard to grasp
That you’re not something special
And you’ve got this strange sort of churning in your gut
Like a piece of your spirit fell out of your butt
Yes, I know it’s hard to grasp
That you’re not something special
And it’s a strange thought to realize the strife
Of trying to organize the details of your life
‘Cause there’s not a hole in which you can crawl
To get to the bottom of it all
And if I could go on an expedition
To try and diagnose our peculiar condition
I think our results would leave us playfully amused
And reveal that we’re just chronically confused
And I don’t have a destination
And I don’t really care
And I don’t have a proposition
On when I’ll be getting there
And if you frown at what I do
Well I could criticize you too
But nothing would change a thing
Now go back just a minute
I don’t think you’ve been trying your very best
I think you’ve been keeping your heart in your wallet
Instead of in your chest
Now slow down just a little
I think we’ve been wasting all of our time
Trying too hard
Not to fall behind
Track Name: Optimism
Optimism

Lonely we fall
To face the uncertainty of it all
We’re swimming in the dark
And I see that you’re frowning
At the shadows in the air
But I want to sit and love
The darkness that is the

Chorus:
{So close your eyes
And fall asleep
Let your conscience feel the light
That resides in you so deep
I realize the walls
Are crumbling to the ground
And I don’t need your heavy eyes
Staring me down}

Spring time’s not coming
There’s no laughter in the breeze
And I can see the terror that comes with life
Shaking in my knees
But can’t you taste that sweetness
In the cold bitter night
Things may be changing
But I think that they’ll be all right

:Chorus:
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes

Looking at this mess of scattered papers on the floor
That came from empty interactions with people once before
We close our eyes to all the pretty little faces we once knew
It’s what we do
Sometimes
It’s what we do
Sometimes

I wish that I could let you know precisely what I mean
To fill the miles of silence in the inches between us
But words can be hollow as everybody knows
It’s how it goes
Sometimes
It’s how it goes
Sometimes

And every now and then I can’t help but feel
That the universe is mad of a giant hamster wheel
And everybody’s running just because they can
But they don’t really understand
And I’ve been running too
‘Cause there’s nothing else to do
But only sometimes
Only sometimes

And now we’re dying in the sunshine and we’re dying in the rain
And some are dying faster but we’re dying all the same
And it often really blows
To just sit and decompose
But only sometimes

Sometimes it’s actually kind of cozy
And we should all take a little advise from a posy
‘Cause all they do is posy in the sunshine
And posy in the rain
And no matter what is said
Well they posy all the same
And they never stop and question the position of their time
No, posy’s don’t ask why
Am I alive

Now after far too much tequila I was talking with a friend
He said ,“I’m tired of lying and I’m tired of pretending
And does love always make it worth it in the end?”
And I said, “sometimes”
“Only sometimes”
Track Name: Something Hidden
Something hidden

I’ve got something hidden in my bedroom
Yes I’ve got something hidden in my bedroom
If you’re interested It’s underneath my bed
Yes, I’ve got something hidden in my bedroom
If you’d rather pass so be it
I know that most would be terrified to see it
But if you pass the tests
I’m sure you’ll be impressed
Yeah, I’ve got something hidden in my bedroom
It’s something I hold so close to me
Maybe the world isn’t qualified to see
And you’re not out to seek it
If it’s seen I just can’t keep it
Maybe it’s better off left a secret

Chorus:
{So I guess it’s time to close up the windows
Let your thoughts seep into the shadows
Despite what was said, it’s an ordinary day
Where nothing is hidden away}

I’ve got something hidden in my chest
I’ve got something hidden in my chest
I can assure you from the get go
It’s not the very best
But I’ve got something hidden in my chest
I do my best to control it
It would be a bloody mess to deal with if you stole it
And it’d disturb all the children
To be flopping on a stage
So I’ll keep it safely in my rib cage
I will keep it safely in my rib cage

:Chorus:

I’ve got something hidden in my head
I’ve got something hidden in my head
It’s infectious and grotesque
If let out will make a mess
So I think I’ll just keep it there instead
I think I’ll just keep it there instead
You claim it’d be better if I showed you
But just a sliver of the content would explode you
Just a peek inside
And it’d make you want to hide
Believe me darling I have tried
Believe me darling I have tried

:Chorus:
Track Name: Words
Words

There are spaces between all the time as it flies
You say it’s hard to catch my eyes
Well sometimes I forget that you can see me too
When I look, when I look at you
So I just run away into a place with in my mind
It can be hard to stick around in these tenuous times
And digging through your self you never know what you might find
It’s just, oh, ummm… Never mind
Words aren’t worth my time
No, words aren’t worth my time
There are spaces between what you think and what you say
And it always comes out a different way
And by he time it makes sense it’s just too late
To actually communicate
So I just run away into a place with in my mind
I’m not running from you, I’m just running from some things I left behind
Cause digging through yourself you never know what you might find
It’s just, uhhhhh… Never mind
Words aren’t worth my time
No, words aren’t worth my time
There are too many ways to think and too many ways to feel
About the things that make you feel a bit too real
And mostly when I speak, I don’t say what I mean
I just focus on the spaces in between
And I don’t know where to run all the time
No. I don’t know where to run all the time
It’s just, oh, ummm… Never mind
Words aren’t worth my time
No words aren’t worth my time
Track Name: Owl Faces
Owl Faces

Well, I’ve been listening softly to that music in the trees
Caught up in the flow of that synchronized disease
I can’t put my mind exactly on those words that you said
‘Cause I’ve been laughing in the dark to those circles in my head
Singing, maybe someday
Maybe someday
Maybe someday I’ll understand
Well, you live in a state of constant anticipation
Trying to reach a point of solid validation
I can see that you try from the soles of your shoes
But you’re really very quite confused
But, maybe someday
Maybe someday
Maybe someday you’ll understand
Well, if I could look through the fog and pry my way inside
To those hidden little treasures in the vessels in your eyes
Well, I’d tell you ‘bout your soul and you’d tell me ‘bout mine
And there’d be something profound about that moment
But I can’t, no I can’t define our direction
‘Cause I can’t, no I can’t define our reflections
And I wonder if it will ever seem clear
‘Cause right now we just happen to be here
But, maybe someday
Maybe someday
Maybe someday we’ll understand
Well, this is only two minutes long
Which is far too short to be a song
So you ask me what I’m thinking ‘bout
Well, I’ll tell you what I’m thinking ‘bout
I’m thinking ‘bout Owl faces!
Owl faces! Owl faces!
Owl faces in the dark
Ooh, owl faces! Owl faces!
Owl faces in the dark
So I ask you what you want to be
And you tell me that you want to be
Well, something more than what you are
Well, I’m sorry to be so frank but you aint nothing babe
You aint nothing at all
And there aint nothing you can say
And there aint nothing you can do
But that’s
That’s why I like you.
