Track Name: Islands
when clouds see humans they see clouds
pianos only like it loud
flowers hope you'll pick their petals
books like fire hate bookshelves like fire

lovers love to love to much
maybe maybe means too much
you are way too indecisive
take this in don't take it lightly

well life is broken life is dulled
i feel sick with no reason at all
a sighing ship took me to this lull
i feel fine for no reason at all

palm trees here look out of place
i cant bear to see your face
some things come to those who wait
the fatalist without a fate

set the scene its not a dream
i want to tell you everything
quietly then loudly
what do you think about thinking things

when clouds see humans they see clouds
pianos only like it loud
flowers hope you'll pick their petals
books like fire hate bookshelves like fire

lovers love to love to much
maybe maybe means too much
you are way too indecisive
take this in don't take it lightly
Track Name: Every Now & Then (Heartbeat)
seven seconds
just like heaven
five or more
too much like four
perfect nonsense night
aimlessly alright

this definite thing
vie heard we're in
in a book before
waiting for something more

i have found you'll find
everything is fine
every now and then
lets forget again
Track Name: Bar Beach / This or This
Originally by Mark, then altered by me a bit:

Words or smoke
was it you that spoke
was it you that spoke
this and this
switch and itch
oh boy i love your tricky flips
and oh well i guess all of this
these wisps and twists
these wisps and twists

Bright ripples on pale crests
fill the contours of a treasure chest
just stop and think of this
just stop and think of feeling bliss
like savouring a summer kiss
like savouring a summer kiss
just stop and think of feeling bliss
just stop and think of this
Track Name: January
I followed an owl a while ago
took me to a spot by the sea
a bird followed me last January
turns out i was a teenage tree

Extremely loud and incredibly close
the furthest from far is the nearest to most
yeah its nice to be near and its nice to be known
if you never ask then you'll never be shown

There's sky in the clouds
or so it seems
the moon might shine loud
whatever that means

and if its too dark
well baby you've got that spark
you can feel your way
Track Name: Wasted
The sun's gone down lets get wasted
Another day just been wasted
Stuck in my head like a thumb tack
I caught a kiss on the train tracks

Lets get fucked up it's the weekend
This apathy is a godsend
I guess the whole town can be friends
Either way we'll have to just pretend

The sun's gone down lets get wasted
Another day just been wasted
Stuck in my head like a thumb tack
I caught a kiss on the train tracks

Lets get fucked up it's the weekend
This apathy is a godsend
I guess the whole town can be friends
Either way we'll have to just pretend

I remember the time we played truth or dare
and you dared me to shave all my chest hair
I remember the time we played truth or truth
her and him kissing in the phone booth

The sun's gone down lets get wasted
Another day just been wasted
No wonder you're such a loser
Get off your fucking computer

You shot the albatross
You shot the albatross
You shot the albatross
Now you've got a nice necklace

You shot the albatross
You shot the albatross
You shot the albatross
Now you've got a nice necklace

The sun's come up i think we should sleep
I've been thinking about you all week
The sun's come up we should sleep
I've been thinking about you all week
Track Name: Hold Yr Breath
There's a pain in my side
I can feel when I cry
And it jabs like a knife in the night.
So i'll laugh it off
To prove that I'm tough
And save it 'til some other time

Cover your mouth
Don't let it out
For fear everybody will hear.
Open your eyes 
To prove you're alive
And wonder why nothing is clear

Wander, wonder, left and right
The world is such an ugly sight.
Take some time and slow it down
Lay your limbs upon the ground

Hold your breath
It smells like death
On desperation row.
Remove the ring when
It starts to sting
So everyone will know

Break it off
Contagious cough
Suddenly you're through.
A rock is thrown 
Across the road
It's either her or you

Wander, wonder, left and right
The world is such an ugly sight.
Take some time and slow it down
Lay your limbs upon the ground
Track Name: Ghosts
more definite than yes and truer than you
it seems you've been filling up miniature shoes
ashes to dust and dust to ashes
it's hardest to catch a cup as it smashes

shattered silence
shattered teeth
burning embers
burning feet
breaths aligned now
quiet alright
i awoke you just before night

blackest of cats beside the window
imagine that i'd never not know
Track Name: A Night Forgot
there are things
both felt and thought
that certainly
get catched and caught
both days and night
Track Name: Starting Something
Let it rain
Let it snow
Sometimes the stars shoot slow

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Fuck your indifference
I want to punch you in the head
Fuck your indifference
You still wouldn't even care
Track Name: Something About the Sky
Sometimes silence more than means this
It’s a case of hit or misfit
Put that phone back down back down
back down
Why’d you want to leave this town?

I am the dumbest bitch on the planet
and i hope you will remember it
I learned a thing or two about truth
found it on the bottom of your shoe

Tonight two hearts around my neck
One to keep and one to lend
Tomorrow morning we will rest
The bridge we’re on will surely bend
The loudest sound I ever heard
came from a gun or maybe a bird
Either way I can simply say
I found the needle in the hay

I forget how to talk
I forget how to walk
But this place is filled with grace
Can’t wipe the smile off of my face
