Track Name: Cosmodromes
All my sin & all my say
I come to lay naught
I don't know, I don't know
a cyan egg & something worth knowing

Won’t you set me loose for days?
won’t you set me loose for days? till the end of-
won’t you set me loose for days? till the end, till the end

All I see are my own two feet
quietly as I trample my yard down
silence please all down my street
tearfully you watch in your nightgown

Won’t you set me loose for days?
won’t you set me loose for days? till the end of-
won’t you set me loose for days? in your own cosmodrome
`and let up`

Olive lies & Elroy stacks
and all these nights are too much to handle
kitchen lights & bedroom snacks
and all my life I thought I would ramble

| | Won't you put me out | |
| | won't you put me down | |
| | won't you hang me up inside | |

Won’t you put me on the moon? in my own home
won’t you put me on the moon? in my own home
won’t you put me on display? in your own cosmodrome
`and let up`
Track Name: Baby Blue
Hey mockingbird
I saw you once before
when we lied that we'd been around the world
I fooled you once
I need you now for sure
how we looked, how we loved

Hey Sisyphus
you're dragging champagne
while I said farewell to baby blue
it hurts the same
here comes the night
here comes the rain

Hey highland mouse
I saw you on the floor
where we'd lain when we'd been around the war
I knew you once
I'd know you now for sure
a thousand years passing lore

Hey Sisyphus
you're down on merlot
while I said farewell to baby blue
just let me go
here comes the night
here comes the snow

Hey Sisyphus, hey Sisyphus
oh another night, oh another night
drag, drag, drag champagne

It’s a song
it’s the end of a song
Track Name: You Are Broken
You look just like your mother who looks just like her father
who died before he met you, the same as your mother
now I've got you and your brother and I won’t lose another
to the same fate as the other

You are broken
alive and golden
and you’ll be broken
and it’s fine

Remember on your way home, you called me from a payphone
said you’d never been on your own/ yeah you did
and remember on your birthday, you screamed on the airplane
'cause you flew too close to outer space

You are broken
you’re an ocean
and you’ll be broken till you die
you stayed up all night waiting by the phone
asked me where you could’ve gone wrong
yeah you are broken and it’s fine

You look just like your mother who looks just like her father
who died before he met you, the same as your mother
now I've got you and your brother and I won’t lose another
to the same fate as the other

You are broken
falling open
and you’ll be broken till you die
you stayed up all night waiting by the phone
asked me where you could’ve gone wrong
yeah you are broken and it’s fine

You stayed up all night waiting by the phone
asked me where you could’ve gone wrong
yeah you are broken and it’s all right
Track Name: Hotel Song
Nucleus overcharged
I meant to catch a plane and land it in your yard
but it was hard climbing in the dark

Fevery animal
did I catch your breath when it landed on my sleeve?
please believe that I’ll be here like I said

With it all unravelin / thought you were

Curious lexicon
Words are hard to say, so I put them in my play
To be read as someone else

Hazy-eyed vagabond
I thought you were a fire, nervous on my shore
Waiting for something more like I said

With it all unravelin / thought you were

Oh, my son
when it's all undone
he's out washing windows
on the hotel lawn
that Chicago boy
he's a gunner, son
he's my only, only one
Track Name: When We Come Down
When we come down and we’re smiling
must be some kind of some poor boy design
we are adults of some jacked up descript-
but none of it halts; it’s a fuckin fucked pit

Have you ever been in the middle of-
have you ever been low?

My passenger is a lozenge of crap
must be excused for some rat’s ass nightcap
baby I’ll say whatever you want
baby I’ll be whoever I’m not

Why would you want that?

When we come down and it’s killing me, you see
must be for you what it cannot be for me
baby I’ll say whatever you want
baby I’ll be whoever I’m not

Why would you want that?

Have you ever been in the middle of-
have you ever been low?
I’m not here to be a pain
I’m not here, I’m not here

Why would you want that?
when are we coming down?
I’m not here
Track Name: N o t c h e s
Some nights as darkness covers me
it leans in close and whispers strange things
like, `don't close your eyes kid there's no need for sleep,`
and `we're no better than the grievances we keep`

And though the night can't keep its hold on me
I've grown wary of the darkness it brings
I'm the closest to dying that I'll ever be
and it scares the thought of sleep right out of me

I lost the means to pick the hours apart
those nights that I spent wasting in the dark
trapped beneath a city that's longing to retire
fixed like some incandescent star

When morning came I wrestled with the light
my arms were weak and blood was in my eyes
I slipped into sleep and I dreamed about night
of the cycles and motions that make up a life
how every mistake leaves a notch in your spine
and you'll see that I'm doin' just fine

Some nights as darkness covers me
it leans in close and whispers strange things
