Trees keep fallin' at my feet I guess it's time to build a boat Make a raft of our bodies Do you think that it'll float? What I said was not a joke, But you just licked the envelope I'm tired of dating, let's elope But you just licked the envelope.
The Woodlands National Anthem
Let this love last I drive too fast Said I'd return if I'd ever cared But there's no interstate I find to take me there.
You climb out the chimney And meet me in the middle The middle of the town And since there's no one else around, We let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know Then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.
Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
Hey, your old man should know if you see a shadow, there's something there.
Une Année Sans Lumière
I woke up with the power out Not really somethin' to shout about. Ice has covered up my parents hands, Don't have any dreams don't have any plans. I went out into the night, I went out to find some light. Kids are swingin' from the power lines, nobody's home so nobody minds.
Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
They say a watched pot won't ever boil, you can't raise a baby on motor oil, just like a seed down in the soil you gotta give it time.
Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles)
They say it fades if you let it, Love was made to forget it.
Crown of Love
If you still want me, please forgive me The crown of love is not upon me. If you still want me, please forgive me Because the spark is not within me.
Crown of Love
Somethin' filled up my heart with nothin' Someone told me not to cry But now that I'm older my heart's colder And I can see that it's a lie.
In the forest we are hiding, Unmarked graves where flowers grow. Hear the soldiers angry yelling, In the river we will go.
People say that your dreams are the only things that save you Come on baby in our dreams, we can live our misbehaviour.
The black mirror knows no reflection It knows not pride or vanity It cares not about your dreams It cares not for your pyramid schemes Their names are never spoken The curse is never broken.
A vial of hope and a vial of pain In the light they both looked the same Poured them out on into the world On every boy and every girl.
Stop now before it's too late Your lover was for hire Have you noticed he's been late Nothing lasts forever That's the way it's gotta be There's a great black wave in the middle of the sea For me For you For me It's always for you.
Black Wave/Bad Vibrations
Left in the morning While you were fast asleep Into an ocean of violence A world of empty streets You've got your reasons And me I've got mine But all the reasons I gave Were just lies to buy myself some time.
City used to shine like El Dorado Now it's sleeping like a shadow And I can't wake it up again…
Burning bridges, breaking hearts, everything they taught us to do Burning bridges, breaking hearts, no home to come home to Burning bridges, breaking hearts, I won't look you in the eye Burning bridges, breaking hearts, caught you in a friendship lie.
Burning Bridges, Breaking Hearts
In my backyard in north Texas On the hottest summer night Hummingbirds fall all around us Their hearts stopped beating in mid-flight.
Asleep At The Wheel
I'll go - one morning cold and grey, You won't remember anything Some of us don't believe in time, And some of us don't believe in life But I've been making promises I know I'll never keep One of these days I'm gonna leave you in your sleep.
Born On A Train
Brazil, when stars were entertaining June, We stood beneath an amber moon And softly murmured someday soon We kissed and clung together.
I lay on my back in the lake at night in the summer time trying to remember Every last second, every last breath that I spent with you The yellow dotted line, reflected in your eyes You scream as the crickets fly in the open window Please don't cry love.
Virgin Mary Highway
But fuck it I love you even if I'm gonna feel like shit By the time I get to you Now the sky is turning blue The stars they disappear One by one as the daylights nears And yes you're in my head But that doesn't make you here.
Cars and Telephones
Where does a promise go When you pretend it isn't there? Do we really think that it could just disappear?
City used to shine like El Dorado Now it's sleeping like a shadow And I can't wake it up again The stars above used to shine in rows Now nothin' knows quite where it goes And I can't get to sleep again Stars above used to shine on cue Now they're acting a bit confused And I can't make them shine again.
In The Attic
So ends my yearlong romance With radio towers and machines Wasted all my prayers That I can't remember my dreams.
Winter for a Year
He fell in love with a photograph If he told her the story she'd have to laugh She feels a distance like a feather He's just a fool for stormy weather I guess that's all, they feel so small His dreams are a boat, he's sailing away She's just a wreck at the end of the day He mails her a letter he should have burned He mails her a letter he should have burned.
