Track Name: Camp Hero State Park
it's late
nobody knows that your brain aches
if they did they wouldn't care
from way up there in their lab coats

patience, the things you do well they don't make sense
your mind is not your own to hold
but you're learning how to bowl much better

crooked pines
grow strong
in sand and windy weather

you'll fend for yourself
if they remove the tether

your home
is far away and some time ago
you've got no where else to be
if they let you free
you would be lost
Track Name: goodness gracious
sorry mom, i left my bag on the train
i was tired and i had brought other things
i hope we can get it back

it's really no big deal
i just had some junk in there

that sweater from san francisco
those patches my friend made
some medicine i picked up from rite aid
other things i'll never get back again

oh well

i've got a lot i wanna do tomorrow
i've wash my laundry
i've got to call my family

tell them all that i'm fairing better
ask them if they've seen my sweater
hang my head at the desk
curse myself under my breath
i get to lie whenever i want to

oh well

remember last year when i went to the hospital?
talk about an episode
yeah but now we're sure
i'm doing fine

eating all my meals everyday
working hard, getting good grades
what else do you want from me?
do you expect my company?
you should know once it's lost it's not coming back again

oh well

where have all these people come from (x infinity)
if i lost them once i'll lose them again

oh well

i've got a lot i wanna do tomorrow
i've got to replace these old strings
i've got to choose to lose things
i've got to choose to lose things
i've got to choose to lose things
and it you're lonely why don't you come with me?

ahhh ahhh ahhhhhahhhh
Track Name: follow thru
make it easy
i pray to you
bless this mess
that has followed thru

your mom wrote
a poem to save her life
there was nothing she could do
she turned the lights off inside

when did i start staring
in the mirror at night
wondering what i look like?

i will fall whenever you want me to hit the ground

no honey
those men are too big and scary
and if you were taken away
i don't know what i'd do

no sweetie
those boys are too rough and impatient
they know not what they'd do
it's in their nature to hurt you
it's best if you stay away

i will come home
i will keep my dresses pressed
i will wash your dishes
i will let you know when i am in distress

my skin is crawling
i feel my clothes
i feel myself
i feel myself
i know i'm here
i know i know i know no no

no honey
those men are too big and scary
and if you were taken away
i don't know what i'd do

no sweetie
those boys are too rough and impatient
they know not what they'd do
it's in their nature to hurt you
it's best if you stay away

away (x infinity)
i will fall whenever you want me to hit the ground

make it easy
i pray to you
god bless this mess
that has followed thru
Track Name: Becca
i'm sorry becca
the world was unfair to you
they never took care of you like they shoulda

i know it's hard
to see from where you are
but one day you'll have a dog and a big yard to go home to

and you'll be
happier than
a catfish in a chernobyl cooling pond
and you'll take
extra strength acetaminophen
until the knots in your back are gone

i want you
to take care of yourself
i want you to ask for help when you need it

and be

safer than
a catfish in a chernobyl cooling pond
and you'll take
extra strength ibuprofen
until the aches in your neck are gone

i know time
has taken away
so many things
that we're never getting back again
but i'll always be your friend
let it try me
let it try me
and i'll see you

happier than
a catfish in a chernobyl cooling pond
and you'll take
extra strength acetaminophen
until the knots in your back are gone
Track Name: abbrv.
we feel ghosts when we're alone
and i am a ghost
in this home

and i'm too small
to hold my own
and you're towering
towering over me

i'm a small and unversed thing
and you are the gas
that makes the bird sing

and i'm falling fast asleep
and what does it mean
to believe in me?

you're always some abbreviation of a whole thing
aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh

i know you're
hurting
but we're skirting
around
the conversation
Track Name: trash day
we live by the trains
and watch them go by
the noise rattles my plants
but darling i don't mind

just make your place where you need to
i will follow you close behind

our lights are always
yellow and warm
you know we're a symbol to the travelers

our fridge is always empty
bellies cold
but chin up
there's plenty to be had out there

the earth beneath out feet
has never felt as sweet
than on
this trash day
and who's our audience?
and what's the ambiance?
is this the cost of living?

i won't preen
i won't pry
i'll sit here on the roof
i'll be sick
i'll be sad
i'll play dead if i need to

sometimes a sacrifice is not what you need to keep a family alive
you can try for the rest of your life
to find time
but there's some things you'll never fix
on your list

the earth beneath out feet
has never felt as sweet
than on
this trash day
and who's our audience?
and what's the ambiance?
is this the cost of living?

i won't preen
i won't pry
i'll sit here on the roof
i'll be sick
i'll be sad
i'll play dead if i need to
Track Name: Joan
john you know you're the only one i've ever wanted to take the train for
the hudson parts its ways for us
and if we talk real careful
and if we sip real slow
your family back home will forget you

john you know the days are getting long for these old bones
i find myself drifting out to space
and you know if i had the time
i'd pray for you every day
if i was a god loving woman

but i don't believe in anything
because you won't let me believe in you

i guess it's best to blame me
i guess it's best to frame me
and fire me for things that aren't true

well i've been living on my own
but i find that you're the song
i sing all the time when i'm blue

what have you done to me?
what have you done to me?
oh my god what have you done?

john i don't need you to come inside
just stay right there by the front door
thanks for coming to pick me up
it's too cold of a day
and my muscles are all sore

all i can offer the christmas is my company
i'm sorry i don't have nothing more

oh no

and i'll never get rid of anything
in case you ever want something back

i know it seems a mess
but i really try my best
to clear a path when i hear you're in town

well i've been living on my own
but i find that you're the song
i sing all the time when i'm blue

what have you done to me?
what have you done to me?
oh my god what have you done?
