Track Name: Catch and Release
Evil has taken it's chances while I've been singing myself some hymns.
Dime store candy in my pocket, i'm nothing but your bubblegum kid.
Tennis shoe string to a locket I've always had a piece of you stuck in these walls.
I've seen the glory but I went and lost it,
I'm talkin to myself, no reason at all.

I've been tryin' real hard to keep my sins to myself
catch my sideways glances I ain't got nothing else
I stopped believing in second chances
I started thinking this room may just be hell itself
Shut up like a trap when I close on your ankle
I'll throw you back, wipe my chin and say "thank you."
I've seen the glory, I guess I'm just talking to myself again.
Track Name: Dumb Smile
I've been addicted to your lovin' baby
I've been hooked on such an ugly substance
I followed you around
that dead ass god damned town
But if I could ask for time back?
I'm always so damn good at that.


I fell so fast I could hardly stand up.
I gotta find someone to come and level me out
But I will bite my tongue I won't think out loud
about how dumb I always get when I see you smile
Will I ever stop acting like a god damn child?
Track Name: Get Out
I keep my home tidy in case you decide to drop by
I do the dishes, tend to the garden, I'll turn out the lights
But I leave my door unlocked like it was 1985
Just as you thought, I am still this naive little child

Get out
Get out

Last thing I remember saying right to you was how I like you better with your glasses on
Now I recall how you wore them about, standing admired in the light of it all
and, oh, "my sweet darling, would you do me this favor and plug in my toothbrush, I never remember."
The hairtie left out on your nightstand was the very last straw
not what i thought- living together.

Get out
Get out

Last thing I remember saying right to you was how I like you better with your glasses on
Now I recall how you wore them about, standing admired in the light of it all

Get out
Get out
Track Name: Tomorrow
I walked back and forth
thought I'd die before I let you know
that inside of my skull there's an unending war
and I march over staying or leaving or both.
I smoked the marlboros you left in your coat
when you left about an hour ago I knew this town's for ghosts
when you're not around I'm just sitting at home.
Don't they say you'll reap what you sew,
to want what you've got and to trust its enough?
A year since has passed, it came and it's gone
Tomorrow I'll love you
if you like it or not.
Track Name: Owen
I'm black and blue
the world's been spinning in and out of view
I'm dull and bruised
I am naked, i can't stand up to you

But if the clock strikes 10,
I've done my best
Who's ever known you to refuse stimulants?

Oh god, the irony-
I've been hoping that my brother deosn't find me
New Years for crying,
guess i did the blow so the blames all mine.

If the clock strikes twelve,
then lay me on down
I never expect you to figure your shit out.

If the clock strikes 10,
then lay me to rest
I'd never expect you to refuse stimulants
If the clock strikes twelve,
then lay me on down
I'm foggy as hell was his name Owen?
Track Name: Loom
I've been doomed I've been dying slow,
when those words come off my tongue
I assume I make you cry
you know what it's like too,
you know what it's like to lose.

But I would die for you,
anyway you want me to.

But do you remember handwriting?
Or scents attached to an un-dominant wrist?
I thnk I drowned in your bed.
I lost days and then
I gotta feel okay again.

But I would die for you,
anyway you want me to.
Track Name: Hannah Wants to See You
I've been tracing smoke circles all night
with the tips of my fingers I've been drawing some lines
and I'll tilt the clock so that it favors my time,
after all it's just half passed nine.

But where you are to me, it's hardly passed five
I know where you are, I know just what you like
and I know what I'd find if I came home tonight
If i came back to give us a try

Oh hannah ain't it funny how we just trade places?
Hannah, I cannot remember your face, but I recall your name.

And I'll clean you up just for old time's sake
does she know where you go when you need to get sane?
Antoinette's calling, I can hear her soft pace
Oh, Hannah, darling, please stay away.

Oh hannah ain't it funny how we just trade places?
Hannah, I cannot remember your face, but I recall your name
oh, you're so innocent baby.
Track Name: Heavy
I've been holding my breath until we both go under
I've been counting my last like they're all not for nothing
I kept my engine running, left my door wide open
I'm doing fine with the cold and great with the lonesome
I swear I don't think of you all that often.

I got shivers up and down my spine
We both know me I am out of my mind
and if you don't come home, ain't it all just for nothing?
I let myself dream of your second coming.

Oh please let me dream of your second coming.


I tried hungry and I tried full
I tried drinking that shit's never enough
I tried my best to keep all my sins to myself,
but baby, heavy is the thought that maybe you never left
you keep your foot in the door- why don't you sneak on back to bed?

Heavy is the thought that maybe you never left.
