Track Name: Eliza
Eliza, you're watching your mommy and your daddy pretty late at night.
You're supposed to be asleep, but your naughty
and watching with your eye.
You're seeing how their lips move, and get in the groove
oh you want to try.
So you pick a boy at school, you think he's really cool
oh the cat is super cool, and you catch his eye.

And you're K-I-S-S-I-N-G and the kids got the birds and the bees. (x4)

Oh Johnny, you're riding by the schoolyard
the girls there, they think you're pretty cool.
Smoking Marvel candy cigarettes, you just might be
the coolest cat in school.
So you offer one a ride home, on your handlebars
no your not going too far.
And when she goes to leave from you, she turns right back to you
and when she turns back to you, you say stay where you are.

And you're K-I-S-S-I-N-G and the kids got the birds and the bees. (x4)

Oh when you're a kid you're gonna do what you like.
Kissing girls and riding your bike.
Knowing everything, knowing all is gonna be alright
and your momma gonna tuck you in at the end of the night.
Track Name: Foresight
I can't hide from this foresight
But with time I could forget.

And live alone
with no parties or phones.

Me and my friends go driving,
can't we just drive forever?

And live alone
with no parties or phones.

I can't hide from this foresight.
Track Name: Frisbee
Leave it back, leave it back, you can do without,
leave it back, leave it back, all as i shout.
Leave it back, leave it back, no you do not need,
leave it back, leave it back, all as i scream.
Leave it back, leave it back, but i want to play,
leave it back, leave it back, no not today.
It's a beautiful day oh you wouldn't believe
let's go out and play, won't you toss with me,
toss with me, some frisbee.

Won't you play, won't you play, come on the weather's right,
won't you play, won't you play, do we have to fight?
Won't you play, won't you play, oh in the setting sun,
won't you play, won't you play, it'll be such fun.
Won't you play, won't you play, oh here's a perfect throw,
won't you play, won't you play, you better catch it bro.
But it's over your head and now you got to run,
and all you're seeing is red you're gonna hit someone,
isn't this fun? The Frisbee.
Track Name: Jump Ship
I've done some pretty stupid shit
like fall in love and then jump ship.
I'm tryna ride the summer out, i let everybody down.

She's done some pretty stupid things
like fall in love and clip the wings.
I'm trying to ride the summer out, i let myself down.

I should settle down,
I've been down and out.

We've done some pretty stupid things
like fall in love when we were young.
I'm tryna ride the summer out, i let myself down.

Oh, i should settle down,
I've been down and out.

What happened to those nights,
happened to those summer nights?

What kind of mess is this?
I've been set adrift,
I didn't get to kiss those lips.

I should settle down,
I've been down and out.
Track Name: Kindergarden Blues
Lately I've been feeling like a little girl,
Laughing on this little playground of a world,
Living like I haven't but a care,
And the birds fly in the sky, and I'm with em up there.

Oh, I'm living life with kindergarden blues,
feeling like I'm five at the age of twenty-two,
nothing bothers me but trouble tying shoes, its the only thing
when i'm living life with kindergarden blues.

Girls scream, tug, and tie to pull my hair,
I slip and slide, occupied, from the pressure to be paired,
but love comes and i hold her 'fore she flies,
far from me but better be dripping than dry,
'cause at least i got to swim.

Oh, and i'm swimming inside kindergarden blues,
feeling like i'm five at the age of twenty-two,
nothing bothers me but all this trouble tying shoes,
when i'm living life with kindergarden blues.
Track Name: Puppet Dance
Sister in the sky, no one knows you're there,
sister watch the world, pulling strings making pairs.

Watch the puppets dance,
watch the puppets dance,
in romance.

Brother take your bow, to a lovers wood,
brother scope a scene, you can see really good.

There's a beautiful girl,
match her with a boy,
let your arrow fly.

What a gift,
what a gift,
such a gift to be in love.

Lover take my hand, heavy into yours,
lover understand, i've never been here before.

Never this far in,
never quite this far in,
as I'm in you right now.

What a gift,
what a gift,
such a gift to be in love.
Track Name: Rocky Road
Momma was a toaster, used to get hot,
when you pressed her lever, it happened a lot.
Daddy was a slice of bread, he'd be real soft,
momma'd get all red, and out he'd pop.

And I'm just toast crumbs.

Sister was a butter knife, she'd cut it up smooth,
make you feel real nice, if you in a fatty mood,
Married to a cob of corn, she'd lather him up,
cut down on him in perfect form, till the yellow fall off.

And my nephews are kernels.

I knew a cone in high school, he had but one dream,
wanted to get filled up, if you know what i mean.
Then one day he got his wish, and served a double scoop,
it melted all over him, make a rocky road soup.

And he fathered a dirty shoe.
Track Name: Sad Town
There was a city whose mayor ran away,
all of the people they thought he'd be back someday,
he knew inside his heart he'd never return,
and so he took away with him a token he thought he'd earned.

Baby, yeah, Maybe's got the key.
Baby, yeah, Maybe's got the key.

Maybe was far away, feeling like a little girl,
while the people in the sad town, were trying to fix their world,
knocking on the town hall door, the folks could not get in,
cause Maybe took the key to the city off and away with him.

Baby, yeah, Maybe's got the key.
Baby, yeah, Maybe's got the key.

Is there anybody out there?
Cause i'm just trying to see, for me.
Is there anybody trying to find themselves like me?
Track Name: Miss Tennessee
Would you still be here if momma never told you you could fly away?
Daddy kept your hand, turned your baby blue eyes darkest gray.
Sister running here, come to give your wings so you can fly.
Swimming in the sand, stop to let the sun come lick us dry.

Laughing all dried up lovers picking flies from each others soul.
Tangled two in one how i hesitate to watch you go.
And your hands are hooking tearing through my cheeks won't rip away.
Fighting through these waters, hoping that our love will find the day.

Cause where will we go now, where will we go now,
where will we go now that tomorrow's come.
Where will we go now, where will we go now,
where will we go now that tomorrow's come.

Morning brings a silence cooler than the blood inside our veins.
Wrapped around your body holding onto blue skies while it rains.
There's nothing we can do now and I'm feeling so afraid.
Wishing we could roll back to the heavens 'fore this grave.

Cause where will we go now, where will we go now,
where will we go now that tomorrow's come.
Where will we go now, where will we go now,
where will we go now that tomorrow's come.
Where will we go now, where will we go now,
where will we go now that tomorrow's come.
There's nowhere to go now and we just fall away.

But I was lost in cloudy haze before you came my way,
burned off by your sunshine I savored every ray.
And i took my sweet time in you while time was ours to take,
before i lost the leaves in you and wrecked myself to rake,
in the last delicious that you left on my lips,
started from your neck and through your chest and to my hips,
where I've been watching far from you since we last fell apart,
waiting on Miss Tennessee to come back to my heart.
Track Name: TOT
I never really loved looking from above
Don't look back, don't look back, don't look back, don't look back
I tried so hard to say always look the other way
Track Name: Wrong Bros
Brother to brother,
I want to develop an idea like no other.
A brand new way of getting around,
With all of the people under the ground.
First we're gonna have to dig holes,
and support the earth above them with poles.
Till tunnels we have and tracks we will lay,
for trains to go zoom zoom everyday

And we’ll call it subway

Hey brother you know that’s not a bad thought,
i’ll give to you all the money i got.
And help you open this city right up,
i got a pretty penny in the drunken mayors cup.
The people in this town gonna love us real good,
just sitting on their asses when they normally would.
Be walking round the town for the whole damn day,
till the wrong brothers come to change their ways.

With the subway.
Track Name: Young Sprite
Lone drifter, I roll into town.
Lay down my pack, toss my hat on the ground.
Strum a chord, try to drum up some change.
To toss a man a nickel and stare at me strange.

The winter’s cold melts the man out of me.
Makes me wish i had a reason to be.
A job in a town or work in a field,
Instead of this run around, just living to feel.

A local sprite sends a smile my way.
She wants to travel, she’s sick of the stay.
Asks me if I might like some company.

I might find a friend in you.

We shacked up on the outskirts of town,
At a friends she’d been hanging around.
She grabbed some shit and early the next day,
Without a word to no one she was on our way.

Young sprite, the whole world in her eyes,
A funny feeling she might find surprise,
Another someone to share in the early rise.

I might find a friend in you.
