Track Name: Cardigan's Fable
Tell 'em yeah we ran to L.A.
Tie your mother down in L.A.
Sell 'em while you're all in L.A.
Try your hand, et tu Brute?

Come and break it off completely
I cannot be passions slave
Kisses and we'll stop pretending
Buried in the pilgrim's age

Come and grab the grown contestant
I can hear your silent sigh
Dearest deadened from the fable
Burn the master in the fire

Tell 'em yeah we ran to L.A.
Tie your mother down in L.A.
Sell 'em while you're all in L.A.
Try your hand, et tu Brute?

Come and break it off completely

Burn the demons in the fire

Tell 'em yeah we ran to L.A.

Track Name: K9 (Return of Youth)
Is it a sign that I pray for you?
Nothing to hide what I want from you
It's in my design that I prey on you
Such a refined point of returned youth

Is it a sign that I pray for you?
Nothing to hide what I want from you
It's in my design that I prey on you
Such a refined point of returned youth

Return youth, return youth

And when you stand
It's in my design
It's when you stand
Take off your disguise

Return youth, return youth

Secrets aside and I pray for you
Nothing to hide what I want from you
It's in my design that I prey on you
Perfectly fine point of returned youth

We know he took it to the grave
And yet it'd never change

And when you stand
It's in my design
It's when you stand
Take off your disguise

There was a time that I wrote for you
And there were times when I called for you
There in the light where I stood for you
You cant deny that I spoke the truth

Return youth, return youth
So much for Mr. Nice Guy

Giving it up for the wrong ones
Giving it up to the wrong guns, wrong guns
Giving it up to the wrong guns
Giving it up and late as usual

What I need from you is what I want from you

So much for Mr. Nice Guy

Track Name: Mirror Matches
Till the end of time
Till the break of day
Till the speaker stops to listen

As we paddle out
As we crash the waves
As we settle in
Take the pain away

Since it lingers on
Since it's all along
Since it takes our interest so quickly, takes our interest

For all you know
The mirror matches you
And for all it throws
Sent twice as fast at you

Till the end of time
Till the break of day
Till the speaker stops to listen

As we paddle out
As we crash the waves
As we settle in
Take the pain away

For all you know
The mirror matches you
And for all it throws
Sent twice as fast at you
Twice as fast at you

For all you know
The mirror matches you
And for all it throws
Sent twice as fast at you
Twice as fast at you

Notions of notions, some psychotic potions
Notions of notions, chromatic corrosion

Don't wait too long, don't wait too long

They're watching you, they're watching me
They're watching every move you make
Track Name: Idle Tears
All my friends weren't friends at all
I'm the salt of the earth
All my life I loved them all
I'm a fool of the earth

Took my car and drove it on
Off the face of the earth
All my life I loved them all
I'm a fool but I can't take these...

Tears, idle tears
Idle tears, idle tears

All my friends weren't friends at all
I'm a fool of the earth
All my life I loved them all
I'm the salt of the earth

Take my car and drive it on
Off the face of the earth
All my life I loved them all
I'm a fool but I can't take these...

Tears, idle tears
Idle tears, idle tears

Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me

Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me
Go and walk away from me

I'm a fool but I can't take these...

Tears, idle tears
Idle tears, idle tears
Idle tears, idle tears
Idle tears, idle tears
Track Name: The Hornet's Eye is Grey
Meet me in the sideyard
Speaking of the yard
These leaves all around me
Are just like all of my thoughts

Tumbling 'top the hard lawn
Briskly toward the barn
Sweetly and so swiftly
Race 'round all chasing on

Chasing on... and on
Chasing on... and on

Won't they wait for me to study
All the tricks they had to
Cover up, the hornet's eye is grey

Wait for me to study
All the tricks they had to
Cover up, the hornet's eye is grey

Meet me in the sideyard
Speaking of the yard
These leaves all around me
Are just like all of my thoughts

Chasing on... and on
Chasing on... and on

I forgave you and myself for what I said and what you dealt
But there was damage done beyond a quick repair
As I moved you kept along, I am the sleeping bear
I am the sleeping bear
Track Name: Digitalis
Ask me again about the switch and if I wanted it
Ask me again if I'm in it or if I'm offended
When you're this sick it makes me rich could you hold off below
And you're so sweet it makes me itch beneath the neon glow

Can't you see I'm busy
What's the problem honey, I'm running out of tape
Can't you see that you're better off away
Can't you see that you're better off away

Ask me again about the glitch and if I captured it
When you're this sick it makes me rich and then I'm over it

Why can't you see we're better off going the other way
I'm the apple to your orange in the blue decay

Can't you see I'm busy
What's the story glory, I'm running out of lane
Can't you see that you're better off away
Can't you see that you're better off away

Can't you see that you're better off away
Can't you see that you're better... (oh f***)
Can't you see that you're better off away
Can't you see that you're better off away
Track Name: Over Harbors
Hold this song
Keep it there with you
It won't be long
It won't be long

Hold this song
Take it there with you
It won't be long
It won't be long

Then you'll fly
Then you'll
Then you'll fly...

Over harbors, over harbors

Hold this song
Keep it there with you
It won't be long
It won't be long

Then you'll fly
Then you'll
Then you'll fly...

Over harbors, over harbors
Over harbors, over harbors
Over harbors, over harbors

I just wanna let you know
The green light
Of the night
It still works
And it's in my possession, my possession

Over harbors, over harbors
You'll fly free as a bird you'll fly
Over harbors, over harbors
You'll fly free as a bird you'll fly
Over harbors, over harbors
You'll fly free as a bird you'll fly
Over harbors, over harbors
You'll fly free as a bird you'll fly
Track Name: Barricada Rota
Never had a hand to hold
From magnetic catches
Pictures dropped inside a box, exit of Eden
Never had a hand to hold

Sure enough hands fell down and
Taking on the masses
Pages flutter in the dark and cross the seasons
Sure enough hands fell down and

This is why the shadow lasts
This is how the Easterns cast
This is where the ocean traps
This is where you turn around, this is who confounds us all

Barricada rota, barricada rota
Barricada rota, barricada rota

Embers make a softer bed
Thought I'd felt those patches
Poems burrow themselves in a well of demons
Embers make a softer bed

This is why the shadow lasts
This is how the Easterns cast
This is where the ocean traps
This is where you turn around, this is who confounds us all

Barricada rota, barricada rota
Barricada rota, barricada rota

There's one and only, one and only you
The truth consoling, one and only you
There's one and only, one and only you
The truth consoling, one and only you

Barricada rota, barricada rota
Barricada rota, barricada rota
Barricada rota, barricada rota
Barricada rota, barricada rota
Track Name: Save Room For the Water
You say you will but you never do
Teach me about the rain
You're coat comes off you're on the run
And you ain't got much to say

You raise your hands and search the air
When I'm here in your face
You take off with you're on and off again
And leave me out in the rain

Out of state forecast / Asking for an autograph
Out of state forecast / Strip me down and make me laugh
Out of state forecast / Asking for an autograph
Out of state forecast / Kiss me on the hourglass

You say you will but you never do
Teach me about the rain

You're coat comes off, you're coat comes off
You're coat comes off, you're coat comes off

Out of state forecast / Asking for an autograph
Out of state forecast / Strip me down and make me laugh
Out of state forecast / Asking for an autograph
Out of state forecast / Kiss me on the hourglass

You're coat comes off
You're coat comes off

Out of state forecast
Out of state forecast

Kiss me on the hourglass
Track Name: My Alibi
I looked at you on a rock without a clue
Now I know why, now I know why
Gone to the moon and I know just what to do
That was my alibi, my alibi
Fell in a pond on her heart lay the fronds
Now I know why, now I know why

What had thrown you in
Was it in the wind
Now I know what I did was love

I saw you first took you down to the hearse
That was my alibi, my alibi
I looked at you as they fed you to the roots
And inside is where I cried, inside is where I cried

Held you in my room
Held them to my tune
Now I know what I did was out of love

Held you in my room
Held them to my tune
Now I know what I did was out of love
