Track Name: Je Ne Sais
"From now on," I heard him say
"Baby’s gone away"

I am told how to stay
Time to go away

Open-mouthed but I’m out of breath
Open ears but I can’t hear it
Walked enough soles are peeling

What is this change of day?
Sun has spun away

Open-mouthed but I’m out of breath
Open ears but I can’t hear it
Looked enough eyes are sinking

Where am I?
Don’t understand
Someone take my hand

Open-mouthed but I’m out of breath
Open eyes but I can’t hear it
Walked enough soles are peeling
Track Name: Getting Older
If you would be someone tell me who’d it be
Well you can
Tell me who’d you wanna be
I'd be anyone but me

I don’t mean that in the way you might think
I’m sad
Just today I’m sad
Yea tomorrow might not be that bad

Mow the lawn dear
Scratch the dog’s ear
Wake up before the sun clears
It’s so easy getting older

If you turn the lights off tell me what you'd see?
Can you hear?
Is it what you want?
Could you change it if it’s not?

If you turn the car on would it drive all night?
In the distance
Are you happy there?
Is there carbon in the air?

So paint the fence white
Make love the whole night
Lay out in the sunlight
It’s so easy getting older

Don’t get too old
Track Name: Open Eyes
Open eyes, dazing and clueless
Torn on time, cutting it close
I left my mind, I’ve forgotten
Nothing is gone, I’m lost on my own

I realize it might be hoping
A long shot, blind in the dark
Hold me back, swinging at nothing
You painted the house while I laid in the yard

Jake, I’m sorry, you know I’m not
And Jake forgive me, those days are done
Mom, I’m sorry, I slipped, I’m done
And Mom, forgive me, I’m nowhere, I’m no one

Speak quickly, speak something real
Please tell me what I have done
If it’s not golden, it’s broken
Double the bet, in ten years I’m done

Jake, I’m sorry, you know I’m not
And Jake forgive me, those days are done
Mom, I’m sorry, I slipped, I’m done
And Mom, forgive me, I’m nowhere, I’m no one
Track Name: Melt
I am now melting down
Sunken nights so loud
Breathe outside I know how
Distant lights blackened out

Go on, try it
Reach out, you know this
Dive in, sink down
Look up, it’s dark now
Track Name: Moon
I say I mean it
Go out and yell this
Lay down, I’m useless
Get up you can’t yet

I don’t believe it
It’s hard to think with
These thoughts that are split
Get up but you can’t yet

I watch it all slide out of view
In and out but gone too soon
I miss the comfort of the moon

And you
Track Name: Pink
Pink, pink at night
It’s snowing in the summertime
It’s cold just like July

Home, sickness cold
You’re coughing up the things you know
And spitting out the old

Trade, trade in all that you know
Swimming towards the moon
It's everything you wanted
It's everything you needed

To do

Shift, shifting tides
When I was young
The sand was nice
It sunk up to your thighs

Hot, hot outside
But now I’m smoking oxygen
I’m stuck inside the blinds

Trade, trade in all you knew
Swimming towards the moon
It’s everything you wanted
It’s everything you needed

Come true
Track Name: Watermelon Head
Take the bag, watch it grow
You never know, you never know
Take a boat, float back
Cities bright, cities fat

Remind me, how long?
What’s that? Was I gone?
Take a hit, go it slow
Turn me up, send me home

Take a bath you watermelon head
Pull the peach pit like the James you read
The friends you had were the ones you never met
So bottle up, now no ones left so

I’m no tired coward, I’m scared of the wind
Dancing forward, scrambled lines in my wine

Take a bath you watermelon head
Pull the peach pit like the James you read
The friends you had were the ones you never met
So bottle up, now no ones left so
Track Name: Dreams
Now I lay upon my bed
My windows open
Am I asleep or am I awake

Look out here from the deck
The valley the sunset
Can I return to there?
Lake Tahoe, open air

A cold breeze blows on me
Unattached to anything
I slip and I fall through
Into white or into blue

Into white or into blue
Track Name: Salt Pool Blues
Anytime, quiet sigh
Inner tide, rolling down on 95
I am psyched, Melbourne type
And it’s nice, I’m burning out my mind tonight

I don’t need, cross my T’s
She takes the lead, babe it’s everything you see
Salt pool blues, it’s all for you
Quiet tunes, beach is lonely, empty dunes

Ample time, to cry all night
What’s out of sight
Maybe in another life

Turn the stove off
Fold the chairs up
Leave the house locked
The summer's gone
Track Name: Jellyfish
I enter data
I enter people
Salad for lunchtime
Salad for dinner

Loosing my side weight
I gained sitting all day
Nodding off cold feet
Tiny room no heat

I’m only human
Constant and waiting
Glass in my face
Is brighter than Graceland

Sifting through letters
Cut on the paper
Spin in my chair when
No one is listening
