Track Name: The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down
LYRICS:

You tore down all of these walls
and forgot to rebuild
the halls are so empty, no one cares anymore,
no one listens

Don't stay home
we're all sick of you lazing around
don't stay home
keep looking until you've been found

Sit back down
hold all of my calls
send my barrel over the falls
it's a landslide, but I'm not quite sure which direction

Don't stay home
we're all sick of you lazing around
don't stay home
keep looking until you've been found
Track Name: Water2 (wetter)
LYRICS:

If this turns out to be another trick
I'll have to reassign what I let stick
it's not so bad, it's just a nervous tick
what I make well would make you sick

You always found a reason not to find out all the little things
I never really questioned why
when standing back bit back at me, I realized that all it brings
is shorter points and longer lines

It's not so hard to rock back and forth
when what you saw as south was really north
I can see your point, but my mind can't sort
how it could cost so much to sell me short

When the word comes through from some omniscient source
that the world's a mess and we've all run our course
well you can work yourself or you can work your horse
until you've worked enough to never feel remorse
Track Name: Spaniard
All these years
the line gets closer and closer
then disappears some night
you forgot to say

I had lost myself
by the time it was over
and I had lost myself
by the time it was done

Oh your teeth dig deep
my bones are your host this year
it's hard enough to keep
composed on this surface

but I had lost myself
by the time it was over
and I had lost myself
by the time it was done
Track Name: Foe Paw
LYRICS:

You stop short, but don't say why
I guess you never had it in you
some hopes are up too high
and some holes are too low to crawl into

I hope you left your lie
some miles ago trailing behind you
show up in some disguise
and pray some sign will never

Find you

The right way is the wrong way twice
you never let your eyes drift off the man holding the dice
you poor kid, crawling with lice
sweet disgusted sympathies just never come out right

You fall short, but take so long
and ten tethers pull with every motion
hopped up on someone's song
some lines just never let up

You stop short, but don't say why
I guess you never had it in you
some hopes are up too high
and some holes are too low to crawl into

I hope the day you die
you won't be cursing what you've been through
up there in some old sky
they'll pray to change the weather
Track Name: Low Tide
LYRICS:

The saw wave's cutting through me
but I do not mind
it's the pulse when my heart beats
sharp and refined
oh the triangle will be
sweeter than wine
just open your eyes
and you'll see the sine
