Track Name: Harmonia
I don’t know how I ended up here
These surfaces are all I’ve known
A temperate room of my own

A larger being looks upon me
I’m not afraid; we’re close to the same thing
They call me an invasive species
Imagine that, I’m a threat

Turn me over
I am like a bowl
I will let you get to know me

The prairie grass is kind to me
The wind made for my wing
And the sky won’t get worked up about the placement of a good thing

I don’t know how I ended up here
A place to call my own
Track Name: Grip
Without warning, you unveil yourself as a thing that grips
Equal parts protection and appetite

You hold on, I hold you off from time to time
And I’ve learned to doubt the pardon of protection
You know that hogging something don’t make it yours
A thing that grips doesn’t know how to show affection

Forecasting every day, from here on out,
You release and tighten, tighten
A thing that grips
Equal parts protection and appetite

You hold on and I get blue from throat to eye
And I’ve learned to doubt the pardon of protection
You know that hogging something don’t make it last
A thing that grips doesn’t know how to show affection

What a conundrum for you to decide
Whether to keep your spoils by your side
Out of pride
Or to eat em, away at em, every last piece
Track Name: My Girl
Where’s my girl who was flashy and fun?

I snuffed out the flickering one
Now instead, she’s sitting leagues deep in my head
She’s pressed up on the skin of a drum

Hidey-hi and hidey-hum
she’s pressed up on the skin of a drum

So you swish and you swirl and you wish for the girl
To find a more buoyant bite
Follow the tide and call for a ride
Go dancing on a Saturday night
Your girl’s gotta know how she gets so low so she can get back up

Hidey-hi and hidey-hum
she’s pressed up on the skin of a drum

So you swish and you swirl and you wish for the girl
To find a more buoyant bite
Follow the tide and call for a ride
Go dancing on a Saturday night
Your girl’s gotta know how she gets so low so she can get back up
Track Name: The Reflection of a Streetlight on the Window of A Car
Take off my dress
Kick off my shoes
Get to the window by the light of the moon

The glow of the sun on the face of a rock
Mocks me night after night
Perched in the sky, with big crater eyes,
He counts all the pining people

Twenty-nine lovelorn silhouettes
And that’s just on my block
I’d never say in the light of day
How long I’ve been waiting for my love to knock
I’d never say how I hope one day
It’s you pulling in the driveway

There was a time I thought you’d come back
And I’d come out of the dark
I was halfway to the door when my heart hit the floor…

It was just the reflection of a streetlight on the window of a car
The dream of a scene where you come back to me and light me up

Snap out of it
Get up, get out of this
Get yourself outside

A wash of neon signs
Awakens the tear in my eye
If I weren’t so proud, I’d call your name out loud
and let it ring into the night

I’m not one to indulge
In the drama of lost love
I’d never say how I hope one day
My love will come back, will come back to stay

There was a time I thought you’d come back
And I’d come out of the dark
I was halfway to the door when my heart hit the floor…

It was just the reflection of a streetlight on the window of a car
The dream of a scene where you come back to me and light me up
The glow of the sun on the face of a rock, a curve across the sky
A glare on the clock, oh hide the time that stops. Come light me up.
Track Name: Friend
You're my friend, I think you are my friend
Call me up and tell me that again
You're my friend, I think you are my friend
Call me up and tell me that again

I swear I'll warm up in the summer time
and we can hang out by the pool and bake apple pies
And I'll kick these cold, cold habits of mine

Tell me how, I think that you have got it figured out
What's this thing called "closeness" all about?
Tell me how, I think that you have got it figured out,
you have got it figured out

I'm unpracticed at being happy for
But I'm well conditioned to know I should support you
You're my friend and not my competition but I'm quick to shy away
and to gain a little distance

You're my friend, I think you are my friend
Call me up and tell me that again
You're my friend, I think you are my friend
And I won't wait to see if this is just gonna end
Track Name: The End
If I continue to live where I live am I wasting my life away?
I could attach but I’m afraid I can’t afford to break.
Is it the marker or space between you count when you’re on your way?

Depends on whether you dread the end.
(Dread the end my friend)
Depends on whether you dread the end, dread the end.

How was the story and did you find that you could identify?
What will you carry with you? Pray for some time to decide.

If I bury my fears away, will they grow over me in the next life?

Depends on whether you dread the end.
(Dread the end my friend)
Depends on whether you dread the end, dread the end.
