Albatross 02:15
I've only known you for a little while But someday soon you'll walk down the aisle Until then I've got to move I swam but couldn't get across Wish I could be an albatross So I could prove All I want is you, make me swoon Say the word and I'll give you the moon I am here to keep you warm and dry Every moment is a wonder with you by my side Let's settle down and build a nest I've been here puffing out my chest The clock is never on our side And I've learned time and time again The ocean always seems to win The tide will rise All I want is you, make me swoon Say the word and I'll give you the moon I am here to keep you warm and dry Every moment is a wonder with you by my side

Spellows 03:14
Tell me major, do you wonder How can we survive only as vessels for another man's revenge? Do we fit in the conduit that robbed us of the place we're to defend? Got a letter, and I'm obliged to answer But I don't recognize the name, it's written in a script foreign to me I may not be a feline but I'm being killed by curiosity So tell me please, where did I catch this wonderful disease? He makes it so I cannot move to fast or move too slow When I was just a teenager Wanted to be the next Lee Majors Now I know this path is not for me Old man wants to steal my fate, two more weeks and I'm shipping out to sea So tell me please, where did I catch this wonderful disease? He makes it so I cannot move to fast or move too slow

Desdemona (free) 03:25
If you ever happen to notice me I'd love to call you by name So christen me anew if you want to I've always missed a certain ring What sets you apart, Desdemona I just can't put my finger on You tether the air, Desdemona And it lingers when you're gone I'm dreaming of Desdemona Wonder if she Is dreaming of me.... NOT LIKELY Floating out across the room Taking your presence as a sign To finally embrace the impromptu If it means I might catch your eye What sets you apart, Desdemona I just can't put my finger on You tether the air, Desdemona And it lingers when you're gone I'm dreaming of Desdemona Wonder if she Is dreaming of me.... NOT LIKELY Can I reach out to you, in spite of your restraint? You're running through my veins, you're running through my veins Desdemona, can I get to know ya?

A Lulling 01:33
What's more absurd than a flightless bird? All these heads in the clouds, I'm still on land, my head buried in the sand I pull myself up and see you Nobody seems to need me around They're busy changing the world, I can't help but stare, never leaving my chair So tell me if you're a mirage, honeysuckle In a bizarre collage of joy and trouble Amid thunderous applause Lullabye serenade me with all of my flaws

Looking out my window, searching When I fell into a dream Pulled me through the glass and confessed all of the deceit While under a spell, I happened to expel Thing I'd rather never been With a new ear began to reappear Simple phrases uttered under sleep Stuck inside, half alive Break these ties I will try, I will try I will gather up my mind Oh, heaven's no, I'm waiting for a signal home Oh, the heaven's know I'm waiting for a signal home Underneath the open fireside Linking hands with the farmer and his wife Here I surrender just like a tree bows And I've been treading on lilypads to get here I've been taking the lead and picking up the rear Making up for the years inside my burrow I'm not going back now For a little innocence I've been living in the background Pace yourself, pick up the pace yourself

Stuck in a place with no right angles Not homesick for that large rectangle Looking at the world from all the wrong angles The broken lines begin to writhe and tangle Oh martyrdom Will I soon become a fingerprint sold to a foreign thumb? Stuck in a place with no right angles Not homesick for that large rectangle I tried my best, wasn't good enough to beat the rest Never saw the apple dive I told a white lie Gravity in the beholder's eye Stuck in a place with no right angles Not homesick for that large rectangle Looking at the world from all the wrong angles The broken lines begin to writhe and tangle

Grow Old 03:37
Woke up to a heady fog Couldn't see a thing, but I thought that I saw Through the window, a face that I do recognize Turns out it was a mirror, and when I look into my eyes, I... Grow old Well I just don't have the purest of souls, no Can't imagine letting my body go Grandfather give me some insight You know what it's like To my surprise I'm in a familiar place Suddenly I'm at the head of the race Once again I'm a formidable foe Then it dawns on me and I begin to choke as I... Grow old Well I just don't have the purest of souls, no Can't imagine letting my body go Grandfather give me some insight You know what it's like

Mary Anette 03:24
Oh Mary Annette, I saw you from afar And stopped to park my car With a steady exhale And you were just a silhouette, for a brief monologue I craved my own dialogue But my words were stale One day you'll hear a knock upon your door I'll be down on one knee Saying "Mary, will you marry me?" Oh Mary Annette, they say I can't be with you That you're just maple and glue A body without a heart But on the contrary, my pet, I'm going to take you as mine My new wave Adeline Because I know I see a spark One day you'll hear a shout outside I'll be hanging from a tree Saying "I know I'll get along just fine with your family…" The doctor told me I should get my head checked The nurse she told me all would be okay The doctor told me I should get my head checked So they kindly fixed me up the very day They probed around inside my brain and rearranged my wiring And for the first time now I'm finally thinking straight So please don't be upset or call me names It's only my brain And it tells me every day that I've done wrong Well you should have seen it coming from miles and miles away I'm not a saint But I could only be a sinner for so long Oh, ooh wah One day you'll hear a tune And I just hope you'll think of me Though I'll deny your sanity
