Track Name: Atlantic
You and me together
Two fossils running back
And forth between child
And adulthood

I was sick – I had nowhere to go
On a bench, I was a monster
In an ocean of egos

I think I wasted and replaced
The other half of me

Living large on the face of a
Card – looking for the isle
With the woman in white

I think I wasted and replaced
The other half of me
But what is this – another angry
Suspicion? Could it be you
Were just another pill?

You and me together
Two fossils running back
And forth between child
And adulthood
Track Name: Charlie Manson's Daughter
You got your toes in the water
You got your feet in the sand
With Charlie Manson’s daughter
Yeah she isn’t much a bother
And she’s a real good listener –
She can read your thoughts
And she’s a real good kisser –
In fact I just might miss her

And she’s taking the stage

You got your head in the water
You got your toes in the sand
With Charlie Manson’s daughter
Yeah she isn’t much a bother
And she’s a real good kisser –
She can read your thoughts
And she’s a real good listener –
In fact I just might miss her

And she’s taking the stage
Track Name: Better Something
Tried to get up when I thought I should've
But I found that I couldn't freeze

Hide your feet neat under wet sand
You've got your wet hands

He sees her coming
Straight for his veins

Hide when you think that you're not understood
I think you'd try it if you could - to sew
Try doing something when you know you should
I think it'd do you good -
but we know
Track Name: Catch Your Breath
Wasted breath
Seeping, softly,
Like a snake out
Of my smiling neck
The noise is too
Thin now to break –
It would only bend
It would only bend

I was doing fine
I had a steady
Check at the end
Of each powdered
Line – flush your soul
Go get it back and
Flush it again
Flush it again

Breath today and
Wait for me – just
Breath and we
will be gone
will be gone

So these are the
Depths and im sick
Of living through
You so just catch
Your breath – or
More so ask that
It be given to you
That it be given
To you
Track Name: I Love Heroin
Father, father hear my sin
I got heroin under my skin
I stop the pulse if it ever begins
Forever dripping down upon
the moment of waking

Love is wonderful, love is pure
Love is something that you cant ignore
I've got my love and you've got yours
To me, love is something that you're
longing for

And I love heroin

No more pulling your legs around
I've got seven little friends that make a unique sound
It starts with the spark of your favorite moment
and ends with the swelling of the blue ocean

Father, father this is my sin
It's such a shame that you won't join in
But, like I said (and I think that you'll find)
You've got yours and I've got mine
Track Name: Walk Towards GA
Way back when we lived in-country
You carried your own
But now that the old road’s hunching
You carry us both

Cant help but make my own torrah
When the other seems gone
Walking my path towards Georgia
Never thought it’d go wrong

Now I see your face
(coming in too strong)
Got my own place
(since we’re moving on)
I know my place in-boarder
Love you like another
Six flights – we danced
On the box spring

Inside a cold, dark hallway – float
Down like a dead leaf –
I know you hate what they all say
Cramped up in your head to breath

Been seven months going at this
Or just a couple of weeks
I’m buried – glued to the mattress –
Fused in with the sheets

Now I see your face
(coming in too strong)
Got my own place
(since we’re moving on)
Track Name: Jonesing
Take a picture of your arms in autumn
Climbing down from a neon billboard
Declining eyes way below the bottom
Mountains dip and strike a foreign chord

It used you to be
What you called a mutual love
But it used to be so remote -
Pulsing at the bloom
Of an autumn sun

Taking pictures when I’m boasting greatly
Take the bridge, veins in break
Then again I’ve been jonesing lately
When indigo's rising that’s all you take
That’s all you take

It used you to be
What you called a mutual love
But it used to be so remote -
Pulsing at the bloom
Of an autumn sun
Track Name: Light
Steal the day when I come
To you losing my mind –
Offer me a cup

There was a hint of
Come what may in my
Wasted days – seething
Burning bright

Bring the day – cold as it
Is getting we could
use the light

New year’s old and gone
And we’re both lookers now
Sifting through the seasons
For the best that we can find
Nick and I forever

There’s a grace beneath the board
Of this I’m sure – boiled and bathed
In light

“Deep beneath the alley way’s a
Place where I will gladly take you”
How could I feel this way?
