Track Name: trust me
help yourself
to a pile of sticks
help yourself
to my bag of tricks
i can’t help myself
i’m an empty fix

don’t you trust me?
won’t you trust me?
i’ve got a smile

don’t you trust me?
won’t you trust me?
for a little while

help yourself
to a style of hair
help yourself
find someone who cares
i can’t help myself
there’s nothin’ there

don’t you trust me?
won’t you trust me?
i’m a liar

won’t you trust me?
for a while?
i’m in the wrong aisle
at the grocery


do you trust me?
don’t you trust me?
like a bed of nails?
Track Name: keys
angry over words forgotten
that could've been something
more than this plastic
i hold up
and make promises
this is who I am
You look different in this picture
as she handed me back
what must be under a
centimeter thick
but is the object
of a thousand deep stares
reaching down
grabbing to the black walls of ancient moss
slugs and spiders
hands searching for car keys
pulling you down into
the shallow wells of
dollars and cents

there is no up
or down
only drive
and reverse
there is no sound
that could make me come back to you
more than the scratching
of keys against your purse
Track Name: longdistance
why’re you running around?
tryin’ to please your man?
that’s impossible because
he’ll always want what he can't

what have I ever done to you? ^
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?

why are you telling me this
where is the last kiss?
why are you running around?
have you nothing to say?

long distance is a marathon
can you run that long?

what have I ever done to you? ^
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?

sometimes I got something to say
other times I want to go away
sometimes I listen to you
and sometimes you don’t have a clue

what have I ever done to you? ^
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?
what have I ever done to you?

long distance is a marathon
can I wait that long?

when you’re so far away
everything leaves a trace
waiting for your call
if you’re gonna call at all

can I wait that long?
Track Name: sponge
where are all these parties
with the people that I wanna know?
and why
do I want to know them?
when knowing someone
is impossible?

you just wanna be able to say it
without lying
no no no
i just wanna be able
to think about it
without hiding crying
the tug of rope
our scattered minds
from the horse's mouth
tell me what you are

she died last year
and you'd never know
a horse's kiss
a redder snow

cure it with apology
we walked by the water
he walked
walked on the water

you just wanna be able to say it
without lying
no no no
i just wanna be able
to think about it
without hiding crying
the tug of rope
our scattered minds
from the horse's mouth
tell me what you are

fell asleep with sleeping pills
and we laughed about it
tell it to me why that you lied
i guess i'm still sad about it

you just wanna be able to say it
without lying

hold me for a second
won't you
hold me for a second in time

the tug of rope
our scattered minds
from the horse's mouth
tell me what you are
tell me what you are

transparent
Track Name: i knew this would happen
and I’m waking at the crack of dawn
and I left the lights on
I left the lights on

'cuz when you’re having
those kinda troubles
he’ll tell you
turn the lights off

turn the lights out on her
turn the lights out on her
turn the lights out on her
turn the lights out on her
turn the lights out on her

and I knew this would happen
and I knew it would happen
I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen

so when came to you
with a soaking shoe
I just needed you

you were a big ol’ bandaid
for me
and now I’m ripping you off

you were a big ol’ bandaid
to me
and now I’m ripping you off so swiftly
and now I’m ripping you off
because I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen

so I’m watching the sun go down
3 minutes before
I made my sound

cuz I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen
I knew this would happen
Track Name: california drought
i’m sorry
that I never showed you who I am
but I kept thinking
that was the wrong thing to do


i’ve gotta lot of fucked up memories
and recent thoughts
and I can't stand it if it turns you off


i wanna turn you on
like a lightbulb
i wanna give you ideas
but not the wrong idea

i wanna show you how easy it can be
but I can’t show you that part of me

i’m sorry
that I did not know how to tell you
that I was hiding somethin’
somethin’ only I can bear
and I’m not quite sure that it’s even there

but I love you more than a tree
needs sunlight to be
growin’
you stretched my roots babe
you stretched your roots so deep in me
too deep
for me to see it, now

i wanna be someone
don’t you baby?
i don’t know wanna fall back in line
after I skipped ahead
can you understand why I’m selfish
and underfed?

taking risks ain’t easy anymore
when my body won’t take
my body can’t take it like it used to

i’ve had a lot of bad choices in my life
but it lead me to get to know you
do I really know you?
I hope that I do

cause I love you like the water
I love you like the water
California drought

love you like the water
love you like the water
in a California drought

I love you like the water
I love you like the water
California drought

I love you like the water
in a California drought
Track Name: she would have wanted you to
I don’t give a fuck
but I wish you luck
and I’ll tell you what

What if i said
she came back that night
she left a letter
by the doorstep

I never read it
I fucking burnd it
And I dont regret it

She would have wanted you to
She would have
She would have wanted you to
She would have

I just can't bear to
It's too unfair to
I got no follow through

What are you
waiting for?
I don’t know
something more.

and i wish I
was invited
on the road trip

She would have wanted you to
She would have
She would have wanted you to
She would have

and I think that
to laugh about it
or cry about it
it’s all the same

you bought me a handkerchief
and I said no thanks chief
but I’m gonna chief it up
right next to you
if you don’t mind the smell
Track Name: cornerstore
is it because of the dirt in my hair?
is it because of my past?
well if that’s the case
then it won’t last

walk to the corner-store
get me some bread, that’s why you need me
or least that’s what you said

and it’s unconscious so it’s alright
while you write me a letter
I will sit tight

Sometimes you tell me that I’m too wild
is it because we're an only child
and I don’t believe
the kids when they say
everything is beyond us
so we’re ruining today

Do I stay and stand my ground?
or do I give up the crown?

well you want the answer
to the question
well what’s the question?
that you want answered?

it’s a sad compromise
and how do you satisfy?

selfish context in your life
why is it like fighting a wife?
give her what you want
she won’t believe it

she wants the answer
to the question
well what’s the question?
that you want answered?

do I listen or do I leave?
well where is the door
will you show me please?

i don’t believe the kids when they say
everything is dried up and we wasted yesterday

i can’t be blamed for this mess
i just will be on your conscience
on your conscience

it’s okay if you go
i still remember
dancing to firelight
Track Name: feet on the road
what never comes around
never comes back to you
follow your footsteps

i don’t know what your sayin'
don’t follow what you’re saying
to me now

and i wish that i was right
and i wish that I was wrong sometimes

but I would not let you
write it back to me

everything you wanna do
everything you could not see
what the reason for it to it exist
and i cannot be this
and i ain’t so blissed out
with my feet on the road

i think that I’m wrong
when you think I am right
I think I am wrong
you see the light

I am so dark
you are so light
when you are singing my name
when you sing it everywhere

it’s going to
when it’s going to

you are not even real
you are not even real
even real, even real

and you were there for me
and you’re not coming back to me

I almost forgot about the fact that you exist
could you remind me with a kiss?
could you?

it’s the darkness in our hearts
that’s giving us a start
it’s the darkness in our hearts
that’s giving us a start

i will ramble on too long
Track Name: tell me all about it
i bit my mouth last night and the blood ran from it
i don't expect much but I come to it
if you're in to torrents & things
then I suggest you buy yourself a ring
buy yourself a ring to go with her
if she wants you to
if she wants you to
then you go with her now
because it's so ripe

bit my mouth last night and the blood ran from it
bit my mouth and the blood run from it, and
i suggest if you want to be rid of them
buy her a ring and make her take it
before your last night's sent away
before your life's not sent away
and your last night's coming on
with a little notice

if you got it (oh)
if you got it
if you got it
tell me wish me well

I wish you well
if you bite your mouth like I do
wishing well
if you give away your money
I tell it's what you gotta do
be serious
give your seriousness up
the playing ground that you made

tell me all about it
tell me all about it
tell me all about it
