Track Name: Dark Rip
Thirteen, late spring, ‘97
Tubes going out and tubes coming in
But I can’t remember anything

Dirty bodies, fighting in their own home
Brother rests his hand on my shoulder
I tell him I know, I know

Uh-oh… I wanna sing you an elegy
Uh-oh… And would you even care?
Uh-oh… Better yet to have you next to me
Uh-oh… yeah, we can make a stand

I feel the pinch in my shoulders
Black taste and burnt running over
This spring, no closer, older, still

Loose skin and teeth on your thin bones
Brother rests his hand on my shoulder
I tell him I know, I know
I swear it I swear it I swear it I swear it

Need someone
Why you wanna need someone?
Why you wanna feed something that’s only trying to get away?
You need someone?
I don’t wanna need someone
I don’t wanna need something they’re only gonna take away

Uh-oh… I wanna sing you an elegy
Uh-oh… And would you even care?
Uh-oh… Better yet to have you next to me
Uh-oh… We can make a stand

Need someone
Why you wanna need someone?
Why you wanna feed something that’s only trying to get away?
You need someone?
I don’t wanna need someone
I don’t wanna need something they’re only gonna take away
Track Name: Lions
What you say when you’re old and dead?
“Oh I wish I would’ve known?”
Does the fire know to set or
The sun self cease, outgrown?
Will you shake with a simple style
At the one you should’ve had,
With the cool dead grace of
The one that never did?

Lions! We were lions!
We were chiming tire irons on the side a every ride that we found
We made a pretty good sound
We were lions! We were lions!
We were lean, tight, fist, fire, rip, bite, burning the seams
We make a pretty good team

What you know when you’re calcified,
In the briefest catch of time?
That the things you feel will be the
Limit you feel satisfied?
What you say at the memory time -
Oh, the words you would have known?
Why the tire in your feel when your
Pride is all that you own?

Lions! We were lions!
We were chiming tire irons on the side a every ride that we found
We made a pretty good sound
We were lions! We were lions!
We were lean, tight, fist, fire, rip, bite, burning the seams
We make a pretty good team

We were lions! We were lions!

At first when you surface, how are you ready to start?
Just what for a purpose? Just how for an art?
But pay you no mind in the how or the why
Just the who that you place in your pride
Just settle your faith and know that your friends are inside.

Lions! We were lions!
We were chiming tire irons on the side a every ride that we found
We made a pretty good sound
We were lions! We were lions!
We were lean… tight… rip, bite, burning the seams
We make a pretty good team

We were lions! We were lions!
Track Name: Games
Let’s play games
In the dark
You got a fair chance friend, hand to my heart

Night come down
Over me
It’ll never be cold with the company



Let’s play chase
Let’s play fair
Feel your blood pump hot in the cool dark air

Midnight hum
Sing to me
I’ll hold your throat so gentle in my lips and teeth



Let’s spend these evenings with our friends



Hold your heart
Cross it twice
You got my teeth so wide and your eyes so bright

Cold dark wind
Smell your scent
I’ll give my heat to the night, get it from your neck
Track Name: All Around
Cut a rut, we’re stuck.
You use it as a crutch,
Your gut – a hunch
But you’re sure about it.
I don’t know what they say, and I’ll see about it
You don’t care what it may, but you talk about it now

Insight’s a tempting device
When you know at heart what’s right – you’re right. You’ll bite
When they sell you what you like
You’re smart but as though you forgot about it
Sing sing sling around
Listen up who’s coming down

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ooo ooo ooo…

Must admit your wits
When you pull the bait and switch
Turn a treat into a trick – oh I heard about it
[sic] and twist until it fits.
Like a special move you’re
Up down turn around
Everybody hit the ground

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ooo ooo ooo…

[Alex makes guitar now]

Went against – I’m spent.
In the end it was so bent I forgot what we meant.
I relent becuz,
I don’t see what you will when you think about it
I don’t know what you think before you even heard a sound

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ooo ooo ooo…
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ooo ooo ooo…
Track Name: Icy Water
I see the icy water
I wanna see the snow!
I wanna know the order
Don’t you wonder where we are to go?
I wanna make an offer
I know it makes no sense
I know, I know, I know it

I see the icy water
I wanna see the snow!
I wanna find the faucet
Ask him what he thinks we ought to know
Uncharted, let us wander
Oh please don’t go before
I know, I know, I know it - but

Stay! The years are starving
Stay! They won’t stop falling
Stay! The seasons calling
Seasons calling, the seasons calling…
Goddamn let’s do it again, ok?

I see the icy water
I wanna see the snow!
I wanna know the order
Don’t you go before we make it home
I got no thing to offer
And oh I know there’s none
I know, I know, I know it but

Stay! The years are calling
Stay! And they won’t stop falling
Stay! And I know I’m stalling I
Know I know I know I know it

I wanted to feel it in my time
Weather the wind with a bird of kind
Heating my fingers on (and?) yours on mine
Greeting the winter, until I

Stay! The dark is calling
Stay! The years are falling
Stay! I know I’m wrong, I
Know I know I know I know but
Stay! The years are calling
Stay! And they won’t stop falling
Stay! I know I’m stalling
Know I’m stalling, know I’m stalling
Stay!
Stay!
Stay!
I know I know I know I know it
Track Name: Blood on YR Sundress
When your army at?
Looking in a sad state.
Where you start from?
Carrying that old weight.
Got a backyard
Bury what your friends say there

Who the smart kids
Running all the programs
Where the bright ones
Kissing all the boyfriends
Deep in the basement
Shaking out the best friend stare

Run, chase on your brothers
Get a good head start
You're faster than the others
Better run, faster than the other sharks

Yeah, run, into the cover
Take the night in your arms
You're darker than the others
Set a sun, deep in your shadow heart

Where your going -
There's blood on your sundress
Tanned boys all
Staring at your necklace
Sunburnt eyes
Shaking off a reckless bore

Tanned boys are
Running in the car park
Breaking windows
Tell you 'bout new start
Tell you 'bout a new taste
Come and put your fresh face forward

Run, chase on your brothers
Get a good head start
You're faster than the others
Better run, faster than the other sharks

Yeah, run, into the cover
Take the night in your arms
You're darker than the others
Set a sun, deep in your shadow heart

And ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah I wanna get full
Heavy like stars and swinging like a baseball bat
Said I wanna get out
And ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah I wanna get lost
Burning a hole into the sky and breaking out
Said I wanna get loud

And time will change us
Leave us vacant
So have no patience
Better burn yourself before you're suffocated
Chase these laden
Days til faded
Curse your wasted hours
Track Name: Away
Let’s let us wander from the shallow steps we’ve come to know by name
Let’s lead our wonder to the trade of knowing all beyond our gates
I fear we’re under something chorusing the murmur of a fate
Away; I can not go, I will not stay
Away, away; I can not go, I will not stay

Away! I will not stay away!

I’m waiting for you in latest place that I have found to hide
Come find me trading stares akimbo with the window’s other side
I could not wade in but if you would go I could not stay away
Away; I can not go, I will not stay
Away, away; I can not go, I will not stay

Away! I will not stay away!

We are adventuring
We are adventurers
I want to be your place
I want to see your world
There is no time to waste
There is no pace, for
We are adventurers

Let’s let us wander from the shallow steps we’ve come to know by name
Let’s lead our wonder to the trade of knowing all beyond our gates
I fear we’re under something chorusing the murmur of a fate
Away; I can not go, I will not stay
Away, away; I can not go, I will not stay

Away! I will not stay away!

We are adventuring
We are adventurers
I want to be your place
I want to see your world
There is no time to waste
There is no pace for
We are adventurers
Track Name: Don't Wanna Listen
I’m nervous when I speak
Cuz everything’s in ink
Or else they got it down on file
In case you’re out of line
And everyone has got ideas
Or something that they feel
And opinions all are free
Cuz no one wants to hear when you say…

I don’t wanna listen, I don’t wanna reason
Cuz I don’t wanna waste my time
It’s a teen dream shaking up every other season
And I only wanna get it right

And I, I wanna sing it every night
It doesn’t need to be all right – I just don’t wanna be wasted

Now my mother never said
That silence or what’s nice
Is the only thing to say,
But it’s always sounded right.
You speak up when you feel.
But they hear it how they hear,
And they know you how they like
And you’ve nothing in the deal. An’ I say

I don’t wanna listen, I don’t wanna reason
Cuz I don’t wanna waste my time
It’s a teen dream shaking up every other season
And don’t we wanna get it

I, I wanna sing it every night
It doesn’t need to be all right – I just don’t wanna be wasted
I, I wanna sing it every night
It doesn’t need to be all right – I just don’t wanna be wasted

I, I wanna sing it every night
It doesn’t need to be all right – I just don’t wanna be wasted
I, I wanna sing it every night
It doesn’t need to be all right – I just don’t wanna be wasted
Track Name: Aurelie

Track Name: Snowcones
What is that, that possess me
When I’ve played and lost so winningly,
That I wander so far behind?

Watch us walk by the water,
Kiss and laugh in staccato.
Tell me your stories a second time.

Story’s got a ghost
She tells herself, her parts rearranging
Is what we think we know
What we need this time?

Half way down in believing
Sense so sweet, so uneven
Tells me a story, and I’m so tired

It’s no lie, but remembered
Scenes rehearsed, drawn and severed
Why do I wander so far behind?

Story’s got a ghost
She tells herself, her parts rearranging
Is what we think we know
What we need this time?

All you have is hope
All you got is time to be wastin
All you keep is bone
All you get is time
Track Name: Hours
Hours. Moving on.
When you wait. When you don’t.
Ours, if we want.
Do they go? Are they home?

It’s these days bleeding on.
They will be the same days when we’ve gone,
But will I see ‘em again?

It’s days til it’s done.
Will I be the same way when they’ve gone?
I wanna see ‘em again!

Hours, ever on
Who they hold – are they ours?
And it’s time, holds us sure.
In it’s wake; in it’s calm, calm…

Don’t say, you know! Can’t say where my bones are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Can’t say where my bones are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Don’t say where my hours are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Can’t say where my bones are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Can’t say.

It’s these days bleeding on.
They will be the same days when we’ve gone
But will I see ‘em again?

It’s days til it’s done.
Will we be the same way when they’ve gone?
I need to see you again!

Don’t say, you know! Can’t say where my bones are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Can’t say just where I’m gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Can’t say where my bones are gonna go!
Don’t say, you know! Don’t say where my hours are gonna go!
