Track Name: Albatross
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
Track Name: Spellows
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
Track Name: Desdemona
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?
Track Name: A Lulling
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
Track Name: The Pace Yrself
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
Track Name: A Rectangle Song
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
Track Name: Grow Old
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
Track Name: Mary Anette
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
