Track Name: Youth is a Fire
You've got the answers
but you don't listen
cling so tightly
you keep wishing

Youth is a fire
that's slowly extinguished
and embers will ash
with me as your witness

Things get heavy
you lose sight
what was once so dreamy
keeps you up at night

Youth is a fire
that's slowly extinguished
and embers will ash
with me as your witness
Track Name: Crustaceans
Under the waves at the bottom of the sea
they're clutching forks and knives
searching far and wide for privacy
don't turn over any rocks
keep your houses locked
oh, all you crustaceans

don't let your tail get caught
who would have thought
that pleasure
can come at such a price
and if your plans
are met
with a sailor's net
don't say you had taken my advice


oh on the ocean floor
everybody's scuttling, running
crawling from store to door
and although it might seem crass
keep the contents of your trash
under the loveseat

don't let your tail
get caught
who would have thought
that pleasure
could come at such a price
and if your plans are met
with a sailor's net
don't say you had taken my advice

island side
below the tide
you can hear the creature's cries
winded sails
sending our heroes to jail
Track Name: Jesse
if it's any indication
why you shouldn't waste your time
well these days its not so easy
love is not so cut and dry

the words you say the tunes you hum
in your presence i become

well you can grab a hold of him
but you won't get the hold of him
you'll have to plot you points
last of the great ones
ultraviolet neon majesty
not like the other boys
he says hes ten dimensions long
and you can take just what you want
but you can't have it all
he keeps his secrets in a face like a mad mask
and you can see them all

well everything that happened's not your fault
if i could burn the vestige in your vaults

there's a lesson in here somewhere
though its getting hard to find
well the bird flies to the hunter
he's got me right between the eyes


climb the ladder
what did you fall for?
climb the ladder
he makes me feel more
Track Name: Worry
if you've got something on your mind then you might as well say it, baby
if you've got something on your mind then you might as well say it now

i dont worry i dont worry

if there's something that you're hiding you know I'm gonna find it baby
if there's something that you're hiding you know I'm gonna find it out
find it out
i dont worry
i don't care
ill drag it out of you
I dont worry
Track Name: Pinned to the Gallery Wall
Pinned to the Gallery Wall
Spit Shined and Lacquered
My ship was salvaged from the depths

You radiate her
heat exchanger
well, in this graveyard
I'm your only warmth
I'll take you under
maybe later
no use listening to the waves pound on the shore

Don't forsake her
circuit shaker
these flames you'll fan for fun
they'll be others
stubborn lovers
Boston Brahmins making bangles in the dung

Chasing time
time
time

and if you want to
drown by my side
tangled in sealife
salt in your eyes
Track Name: Nothing
Sage and Silver
he gives me pills for sleep
he hides his wings
lies in wait for me
and I have seen his cloven foot
his fountain pen his doctor's books
he's made himself a guest of mine
his tracks deep in the snow outside

Leave sweat angels
lying in the light
you feel nothing


He said
'i'm not your policeman,
and im not your priest"
we're playing games
on institutional green
flowers bloom and fashions fade
watch him as he walks away
teacher's yelling "whats the subject"
Find it in a couple days

Leave sweat angels
lying in the light
you feel nothing
Track Name: Tightrope
We are walking such a thin line
well there's a tightrope strung in my mind
Reflecting on my posture
and taking all my steps in perfect time

well you don't really know me
and there's nothing that you owe me
it's just me I'm feeling lonely
and looking for a sign

High wire
you're walking
blank faces, people gawking
big stakes oh, big bingo

well I'm not looking to be baptized
I don't want new age rebirth
because to love is to be chastised
so let me fall for what it's worth
