Track Name: Over There
::: Lyrics :::
I think weʼre living in a vile
Poured together with a smile.
I think weʼre mixed up in the Hague
With one eye black engraved.

She told me, when youʼre sad and lonely
Say pretty please and Iʼll give you what you need.
But that wasnʼt good enough,
that wasnʼt good enough,
that wasnʼt good enough for me.

Got my hands on my head
And Iʼm going over there.
Turn around, take it slow
Way up high, way down low.

And weʼll keep stumbling on ice
Holding wishes with our lives.
And if we shovel in parades
For clovers grown over graves...

She told me, when youʼre sad and lonely
Say pretty please and Iʼll give you what you need.
But that wasnʼt good enough,
that wasnʼt good enough,
that wasnʼt good enough for me.

Got my hands on my head
And Iʼm going over there.
Turn around, take it slow
Way up high, way down low.
Track Name: And Then Again
:::lyrics:::
Left right center
and i'm stuck in the middle
I've got a problem with feeling
that i'll ever feel real
and if I don't, what if I don't
I'll get stuck back near
saying you don't gotta go
but you cant stay here

there's a second chance
on the way to the end
where everybody you meet
is just waiving retirement

and then you mend
and then you mend
and then you try it again (repeat)

We don't have to settle
learn the lessons of your brothers heavy metal
lip stained ride from the 7-11
keep your guilty keys to your guilty heaven

we're a bunch of self reflectors
shining silver apples
drinking sour nectar
make you feel safer
if you call your waiter
but you'll never be greater than your 1st grade paper

there's a second chance
on the way to the end
where everybody you meet
is just waiving retirement

and then you mend
and then you mend
and then you try it again (repeat)

We don't have to settle
learn the lessons of your brothers heavy metal
lip stained ride from the 7-11
keep your guilty keys to your guilty heaven.
Track Name: Pineapple Triangle
:: Lyrics :::
We bought and sold each other
from across the isle
We knew it from the moment
that we recognized

We fought and held each other
from across the isle
We bought and stole each other
when we recognized.

And we danced
and we kissed,
So much love... happiness.
And then I am convinced
And then you, you resist.

We thought and thought together
when the chance arrived
We found and stole each other
when the time was right

We fought and held each other
from across the isle.
We bought and stole each other
when we recognized.

And we danced and we kissed,
So much love... happiness.
And then I am convinced
And then you, you resist. (x2)
Track Name: Water Damage
:::lyrics:::
I look up at the sun
I see everyone,
looking back at me.
And they’re singing.

La.
La La La La La.
La La La La La.
La La La La La

They’re saying wait.
You don’t have to wait.
You don’t have to wait.
You don’t wait anymore.
Oh no no no no.

La.
La La La La La.
La La La La La.
La La La La La

They’re saying wait.
You don’t have to wait.
You don’t have to wait.
You don’t wait anymore.
Oh no no no no.
Track Name: Argentina
:::lyrics:::
Struggling for an answer.
Wondering how.

We were so close together
We were the oldest feather
I want I want some order.
No way No way its over.

Pieces of our happy night
In the town south of Argentina.

Don’t you want me for you.
Don’t you need me for you.
Don’t you see for yourself.
Don’t believe no one else.

We were so close together
We were the oldest feather
I want I want some order.
No way No way its over.

Pieces of our happy night
In the town south of Argentina.
Track Name: Hot Button Topic
:::lyrics:::
The pit is getting bigger
While the stocks are falling quicker,
and if the fit ain't getting fitter
they’ll throw a fit before they finally get ya.

Right now the rich aren’t getting richer,
but every year they’re getting stiffer.
And every year, I’m getting bigger.
Can you move I got to take the picture now?

Oooo, every seven years is another phase.
Oooo, I can barely make it through seven days

Your granny's gone green
and you think its funny
You went to college
and you wasted your money
Playing cards is your family business
And when you're done you got to finish the dishes
Then your girlfriend shrunk your favorite sweater
You know the cause of the caps is the weather
But there's a muscle man in the mountain
Selling cups of fire from his mythical fountain

Oooo, every seven years is another phase
Oooo, I can barely make it through seven days

I know, look out the window and then through the trees
I know, I want to climb them, and then make believe
I know, I’m trying to listen with a broken receiver
I know, I’m feeding quarters to a broken meter
I know, and if I try I think I’ll kill the disease
I know, I like my coffee like I like my coffee
I know, wake me up from this American dream
I know, I’ll sell your soul if you give me the keys

Oooo, every seven years is another phase
Oooo, I can barely make it through seven days  (x's 2)

My full kitchen sink, its a hot button topic
5 minutes late, it’s a hot button topic
I grew a beard; it’s a hot button topic
The gulf disappeared; it’s a hot button topic
I want to record, it’s a hot button topic
I want to go up north; it’s a hot button topic
A double entendre, its a hot button topic
And the kids in Rwanda, its a hot button topic
Organic toothpicks, its a hot button topic
Cookies for breakfast, it’s a hot button topic
Staying the course, it’s a hot button topic
Mom and dads divorce, its a hot button topic
Hair in the drain, its a hot button topic
Its not fair trade, its a hot button topic
Cholesterol, its a hot button topic
And two deer’s on the wall, its a hot button topic
The history of time, its a hot button topic
The crumbling mine, its a hot button topic
No she didn’t want it, it’s a hot button topic
And he couldn’t stop it, it’s a hot button topic

Oooo, every seven years is another phase
Oooo, I can barely make it through seven days  (x's 2)
Track Name: In Lava
:::lyrics:::
My friend says I need a pen from space
Where I can be locked away and thinking about the stakes
Everywhere I turn I someone’s looking to mislead
Why cant they just let me be, whats the need
Whats the need oh how

Baby me and you
We’ll make our dreams and have them too
Baby me and you
But only for a little while.


We were young and free
We were having fun.
We were filled with sorrow,
We were young and dumb

We were young and dumb
So young and dumb.

We thought we knew it all
We could see ahead.
Who knew we’d end up just like
We should have guessed.

Baby me and you
We’ll make our dreams and have them too
Baby me and you
But only for a little while.
Track Name: Older Now
:::lyrics:::
It’s over now.
It ain’t coming back.
You’re older now,
Time to face the facts.

It’s been a great run
You got a whole lot of nothing done
You’re older now.

It’s over now.
It ain’t coming back.
You’re older now,
It’s time to face the facts.

It’s been a great run
You got a whole lot of nothing done.
You’re older now.

It’s over now.
You’re older now.
It’s over now.
You’re over now.
That’s all for now.
