Track Name: Booomboxxx
eyes closed knees on the floor
hunched over bells in a row
kneeling, waiting perfectly still
mallets hanging perfectly still
waiting to make a sound

someday somehow
you’ll make a sound
Track Name: Planets + Stars
let’s walk this direction as the seconds trickle down
where every step is a destination
how heavy is your foot when it hits the ground
how much earth does it take to make it stop

no more questioning no
don’t you look at me sideways

this time

so we keep this line sliding forward
every step a destination
and I don’t need to turn my face around
just feeling for the weight of the ground

so no more whispering no
don’t you look at me sideways

this time
Track Name: The Crack In The Sea
and as you turn while wandering
across the waves somewhere dark and deep
do you see the things you move away to see
or are you troubled by the things
you don’t understand

my life is circling
around a line that wrestles the sea, deep
cuz the more that we find out
the more we wanna know

so let’s not trouble with the things
we don’t understand
and we don’t know

my love
ocean floor was opened long ago
my love
and currant started forming long ago
my love
water began circling long ago
my love
this ship started sinking long ago

so let’s not trouble with the things
we don’t understand
and we don’t know
Track Name: I'm Alive Don't Bury Me
and the look on your face I think
that I’ve seen it once before
your silent bullying
gets the memories flooding in

I’m alive don’t bury me
I said without a sound
and in my imagination
my words knock you to the ground

I’m alive don’t bury me
I’m alive under here

so I’m quite prepared by now, you see
my skin thickens all the time
and I will not dwell on anything
no I won’t make that mistake twice

I’m alive don’t bury me
I say without a sound
and in my imagination
my words knock you to the ground

I’m alive don’t bury me
I’m alive under here
Track Name: La La La La LA!
I don’t need any other
I just want to see you again
let’s find ourselves some time
all we need is time to kill

there is no other ground
than what you stand on
this is our place to take
until we are gone

there is no other ground
this is our place to take
Track Name: Put Your Hands All Over Me
I’ve spent some time looking for
all the telling signs
and this ship is falling
so my love, I feel to stay
is a big mistake

given time
and the full reaching of the sea
we’ll all go under
I smell the rotting in the beams
I felt a crack in the seems

so come on now my love
before it’s too late
I know the water is calm
but we still shouldn’t wait

tell me what do you see
what am I missing
staring out at the blue surrounding you
and falling to sleep

then we sink
Track Name: Love Letters Only
let’s snoop around
something in this town now
seems incongruent to me
it’s been days
since we’ve seen the sun’s rays
and I’m so bored of waiting

so take my hand
to the window sill now
crouching as we go slowly
we peak around
making not a sound now
we’ll see what we have come to see

crawling through a window
finding what we wanna know
see on every cold face
too late now, it’s over

spirits high and we were crouching low
and we found we didn’t want to know

I realize on this window sill now
I’ve made no will so help me, honey
with my hand clutching at a pencil
I’ll write love letters only

to all of my friends now
especially the ones I love
in the low right corner
too late now, it’s over

spirits high and we were crouching low
and we found we didn’t want to know

spirits high and we were crouching low
Track Name: WE ARE AN ARMY
we are an army
just as long as we remember
we are an army
