Tobi 02:17
Watched you light your cigarette I saw you cry on Christmas Eve I heard you break the sliding door You must’ve gone through tragedy I never want to be alone You argue with the mailman And throw out unbruised fruit Stained up nightgown in the eve And fucking on the stoop You argue with the neighbors You spit and kick and scream You come back home late at night And wake me from my dream I never want to be alone Takes a faculty of my mind Capacity of my soul Takes version of my brain Now push me down below Takes a faculty of my mind Capacity of my soul Takes version of my brain I never want to be alone

She's Mine 03:01
Just like the tide moves in Just like waves roll out Just like my mood fades Just like the sun shines She’s reading my palm She’s asking my sign She’s mopping the deck Her gravity’s fine She’s mine She’s guessing the dates She’s guessing them right She’s flying the coop Her gravity’s fine She’s fine Just like the tide moves in Just like waves roll out Just like my mood fades Just like the sun shines She’s chanting to stars She’ll put of a fight She’s feeling a hunch She’s dancing at night She’s mine She’s making her list And checking it twice She’s figuring out Who’s fiendish and nice She’s fine Just like my mood fades Just like sun shines She’s mine She’s fine

Bathe Clean 03:06
Sheets are soaked, I feel full Awful, rotten and illogical My clothes are soiled, I feel dull Knees are weak so I crawl I don’t know where you go I don’t know where you’ve been I don’t know where you stay I don’t know when to begin Bathe clean Stay clean, with me Melatonin has kicked in Only leads to agitation And all the nausea from the vitamins Makes me want to fall again I don’t know where you go I don’t know where you’ve been I don’t know where you stay I don’t know when to begin Bathe clean Stay clean, with me

What We Give 02:13
Don’t let the fires get in the way of A cold story you can share with your friends Extreme heat is pushing out the bobcats Letting go is the only way to end I sat on top of a full-blown catastrophe Not the way I intended it to spend Give, what do we give? Some say I am youthful in spirit Some argue that I’m just stupid I know it seems like I’m always on empty And yet I have something left to give Give, what do we give?

Pargana 03:57
The leaves begin to turn And they’ve fallen onto grey And the rocks whisper to me And fields begin to sing Now the water tastes like salt And it’s cooler than true North And feeling starts to come over me And the trees begin to dance Take nine steps, now two more I’m told, I know Seeking longitude And I’m feeling latitude Elevation starts to talk to me And the sands turn pure white Dialect starts to shift And jargon starts to turn The offing is so beautiful Truth in nature Take nine steps, now two more East Coast, southern most Take nine steps, now two more Foremost, holy ghost. Take nine steps, now two more I’m told, I know

Settle Down 02:55
Settle down, I always wanted to Settle down, I’m right in front of you I took a decade off, just to get away I took a decade off, but now I’m gonna stay I wanna know what’s yours I wanna know what’s mine I wanna know what’s ours I already know what’s mine Settle down, I always wanted to Settle down, I’m down in front of you I took a lifetime off, just to get away I took a lifetime off, but now I’m gonna stay I wanna know what’s yours I wanna know what’s mine I wanna know what’s ours I already know what’s mine I need to know what’s in return I need to know what’s in return I need to know what’s in return (let me ask you) I need to know what’s in return Settle down

I don’t want to be held I don’t want to be talked to I don’t want to be heard Apply aloe to sunburn Because I’m noble man Head’s on my shoulders I’m a gentleman Why don’t you come over? I’m a nervous wreck I’m a goddman mess Always doing no wrong Often causing no harm Hypervigilance And my muscles are tense Cut my caffeine intake Still hurts like a toothache Because Started biting my nails Spit them on the carpet Started grinding my teeth No reason to stop it I’m a nervous wreck I’m a goddman mess Always doing no wrong Often causing no harm

Heaven knows why you’ve done this before There’s son on the floor Your sister claims flop, peers through the door There’s son on the floor I don’t know why, we all walked away I don’t know why Don’t call my family Just leave me lying I don’t know, I’ve been here before There’s son on the floor My mother screams, stop, out through the door There’s son the floor I don’t know why, we all walked away I don’t know why Don’t call my family Just leave me lying I don’t know why, we all walked away Now we will pay Don’t call my family Just leave me lying Just leave me

Fasten it Up 02:34
Come and take my love and run Come and take my love and run Once you know you can, I’ll better understand Fasten it up I will find you Feels so hot in the dark Feels so cool in the light Once you know you can, I’ll better understand Come and take my love in the night Fasten it up The passion above

My Modesty 02:24
I know you’re waiting for it, waiting for it Coz’ I’ve been driving all night So give me something for it, something for it My modesty, is your must see My modesty, philosophy So now you’re waiting for me, waiting for me I put your things in the van You keep asking for it, asking for it My modesty, is your must see My modesty, philosophy I know you’re waiting for it, waiting for it Coz’ I’ve been driving all night My modesty, is your must see My modesty, philosophy

Intentions 04:00
The swain’s on the couch Disoriented, it’s not who you are, it’s just what you did The child’s right here, asking for help Let’s give it a try, not by myself My intentions are good, but I fail sometimes Meanwhile, I give in The world is out here Implicated on trust God sent above, a breeze with a gust My affliction’s right her, it’s making no sound Vibration feelings, now I’m homebound My intentions are good, but I fail sometimes Meanwhile, I give in This is the last time This is the last… My intentions are good, but I fail sometimes Meanwhile, I give in
