Track Name: Good Way
skeletons out on 6th Street
the face of the earth is on the computer screen
and there's wind in the trees

New York sings like a siren
San Francisco is a river of piss and gold
but there's something I can't see
some place else just out of reach
I'm finding a good way to get there
Track Name: Important Things
I
I do not
apologize
for sitting here while everybody else is dying
I'm dying too
I'm dying too

the sky falls to pieces
and I just wanted to play music

is it groovin?
or delusion?
does it really even matter what you think?

when
when you speak to me
about important things
I don't know just what to say to entertain you
there's a melody that flies outside my window
and I'm flying too
yeah I'm flying too

is it groovin?
or delusion?
does it really even matter what you think?

I just do it cause it feels good
I just do it cause it feels good, feels good
Track Name: Catalyze
it always ends this way:
you got your light on
at the silent hour
and you need a shower
yeah you've got something to say
but you just can't find the words

so you decide
to start with letters
puttin them together
but you liked it better
on someone else's page
so you throw it all away

all you do is catalyze
alone at night
find a voice in what's been said
by your friends that you never met

then you get in bed
stare at the ceiling
get a funny feeling
that the ceiling
is just transparency
and the sky's on the other side

draw the constellations
of your own creation
someone else can name them
Orion needs his pants
and you need to get some sleep

all you do is catalyze
alone at night
find a voice in what's been said
by your friends that you never met
Track Name: Talkin Bout My Love
although we just met
I feel like I've known you forever
when you first looked at me
I couldn't breathe
now I do believe
you are the one
you are the one
you are the one for me

it's plain to see
talkin bout my love

I thought I'd never find something so true
but I can tell that this time is different
all those hopeless lies and bitter ends
no I'll never get tired of you
tired of you
tired of you, I swear

nothing compares
talkin bout my love

no, no
we don't need nobody else
cause we got something secret
that they can't understand
and yet again
we are alone
we are alone
we are alone out here

nothing to fear
talkin bout my love
Track Name: Anywhere, America
the sun is still up
you're gliding down the main strip
and everything is golden
in Anywhere, America

heat waves
dancin on the pavement
and the men's jackets
are 45% off

you bought your jeans already torn
you learned to love from the stars
you were wide awake when you were born
but now you sleep through thunderstorms

call up your friends
yeah
plan to meet at Fred's Place
it's gonna be a good time
cause Thursday nights are karaoke

oh the future's looking just fine
maybe get a little high
and drive out to the skyline
just feel as if you're going somewhere
feel as if you're going somewhere

you bought your jeans already torn
you learned to love from the stars
you were wide awake when you were born
but now you sleep through thunderstorms

the sun is still up
you're floatin down the main strip
and everything is golden
in Anywhere, America

fuck
