Track Name: That Henri Matisse Made Some Impression On Me
I'm always listening to you because you talk so
I'm always listening to you because you talk so
I'm never listening to you because you talk so... loud
about nothing
but pop culture and scripts you've read over
and over again
are you listening to me, cause I want you
are you listening to me, cause I want you (to come over tonight)
and we'll keep looking back to the avant-garde movements and dadaism
and think art is a lie for awhile
but that Henri Matisse left some impression on me
all our friends couldn't care at all
you're not sure where we'll end up in a few years
but neither am I, neither am I
who could be so sure of something so uncertain at night?
I'm always listening to you because you talk so
I'm always listening to you because you talk so
I'm always listening to you because you talk sweetly
Track Name: For The Love Of Zero (Ten Months)
Ten months in the incinerator
Is better than being alone
When the thoughts in your head have caved in
turning parchments and paper into diamond rings
Your hopes have become stagnant
rusted over by old regrets
your trip to the corner window
left outlines of your weary breath
There's a light across the city
it doesn't ever go out
and you think
"Were all going out the same way"
In ten months you'll be home again.
I guess it's better than being alone
When the thoughts in your head have caved in
turning parchments and paper into bad habits
and your hopes have become stagnant
rusted over by old regrets
your trip to the corner window
left outlines of your weary breath
that said "We're all going out the same way"
Track Name: The Children Stared Inquisitively
I never compromise
with you
cause I know
just what your eyes say
when you lie
to my face
the cold blooded killer made everyone afraid
of open windows and mirrors
and the basement stairs at night
everybody knows the lions in the cage
and everybody knows it's all just a game
and that dreams take the remnants of day
and then we wake up
Track Name: New Days, A Fresh Start
New days, a fresh start
New days, a fresh start
New days, a fresh start
I watched you fall apart
I saw what in you
I watched you fall apart
I saw what in you
I saw your heart on your sleeve
I saw you fall apart
I heard what was wretched sadness
I took it home with me and put it in my pocket
along with loose change
I saw you fall apart
I saw a ceiling fan spinning forever...
Track Name: Feel Alright
Is it too hard to write, does it make you feel alright?
Would you open your eyes, if it made you feel at home?
Would you let me inside, if it makes you feel less alone?
We're together when (and if) we want to be
You tire at night
We do whatever we want to
I'm a reflection of time and culture
You're a reflection of my (own reflection of time and culture)
superficial life, am I your material possesion?
superficial life, I don't want to be.
I am a flag, and you are a story your mother told when you were young
you never forgot that lesson.
Is it too hard to write, does it make you feel alright?
Would you open your eyes, if it made you feel at home?
Would you let me inside, if it makes you feel less alone?
Track Name: Tea & Honey
I feel my teeth rotting out
from under me
along with the taste of honey
and green tea
but I'd rather be in Italy or France with you
because this goddamn city is a murky gray
you're a long way from this crowded subway
remembering, and foolishness
my fucked up sense
and sense of
tom foolery
forgetting, and truthfulness
and Paige's insincere sincerity
(a purpled smiled reconcile)
to be lost than found
