Track Name: Robert Is Here
A paper leopard spots his hiding place
But we’re too loud to live inside his space
Deep purple roses masquerade as thorns
To cloak their pricks
Warm summer breeze calls out his name
‘cause he’s to blame

Gymnastic kites engage the pale-blue sky
With tales of gold
Explorers blaze a new frontier
Bright painted lamps
Illuminate his form, unrecognized
The captain cocks his head to hear
That which he holds dear

And all the while
He was just slightly out of view
Give us a smile
His bloodshot eyes are trained on you
Hypnotic trampolines will launch us
Into oceans green and blue

The hardest part for some, he knew
The heart is part of something new
The hardest part for some, he knew
The heart is part of something new
Track Name: Tico Says
What is a man if he can’t reconcile his tears?
Bury the past, still we dig up what we need
I know a man who made it through the other side
A punk is still a punk,
A sole survivor still the captain of his vessel

Walk through the valley, but remember where you’ve been
Carry the weight of every drunken warrior
I know a man who puts it all down on the floor
All sweat and gasoline,
All flailing arms, machine gun shots and broken cymbals

Don’t let your heart grow cold
Don’t you regret the days
The ghosts of who we were haunt no one, but us
That’s what Tico says
Track Name: Cliff
This is where she slipped, he said, hand to heart
Colorado Rocky Mountain trail
Lovers’ hike, but a cruel x marked the spot
This is where his story starts to fall apart

Don’t turn around
The clouds of love are nebulous
Don’t turn around
There’s danger, then there’s dangerous
Don’t turn around
There’s closure when you hit the ground
Don’t turn around, Don’t turn around, Don’t…

Wicked ruse repeated several times before
One and only witness to a crushing end
Follow the money back to where he dreamt the plan
Follow her heart to the place where it all began
Track Name: Disappeared
When you hear about
What you’ve heard about before
But it’s you they’re looking for
Could you turn around?
Could you vanish into space?
It’s your face, that you see plastered everywhere
I’m not dumb
And I know cars don’t just disappear
Girls don’t disappear

When you think about
All the ways that we can leave
It’s easy to believe
There’s a separate place
Where we get to say goodbye
I won’t lie, it’s a joke I think I’ve told before
We can laugh
While you drive your car into the sea

They say you’re coming home
But you and I both know the truth
You’re never coming back again
No

Shiny girls can’t hide
They can only slide into something weird
But you never tried
You only disappeared
Track Name: Betty
Phoenix, nineteen-sixty-three
Betty starts her day
These little things that are not her own
Make her thoughts drift away
And the promise of a new year, blown

The youngest could not understand
This feeling of malaise
And so it seemed a twist of fate
A stocking on the chaise
And then Arizona State…

Hard forty-nine
A breeze won’t blow
And the sun don’t shine
Don’t be afraid
All God’s debts will be repaid

And so it was after nineteen years
Redemption came her way
And then thirty more just to resonate
Call it forty-nine to a day
And then farewell to Arizona State

Time doesn’t care
If the leaves turn brown
And the vultures stare
What could it mean?
Will the years forgive a forgotten scheme?
Hard forty-nine
A breeze won’t blow
And the sun don’t shine
Don’t be afraid
All God’s debts will be repaid
All God’s debts have been repaid
Track Name: Fake Inspirational Song
The sun’s gonna rise in the morning
First you crawl, until you can run
Nothing can hold back the wind in your sails
The race of your life has begun

It’s the first day
And the last time
You will ever say “yesterday’s dead”
This is the dawn of the seed of redemption, my friend
But tomorrow will own you again

Look at the flowers, they don’t care what you own
Look at the birds, now you won’t feel alone
Look at the stars shining bright in your sky
It’s a lie, it’s a lie, it’s a lie…

‘cause it’s the first day
And the last time
You can ever say “yesterday’s dead”
It’s the dawn of the seed of redemption, my friend
Now tomorrow will own you again
Tomorrow will own you again
Track Name: Sillyhead
I first found out when I was living in the womb
I heard the voices, heard the ticking bomb
Felt the boom
As I got older I was dying to fit in
That was the plan – I was killing it

Went through the motions but I couldn’t understand
Drawing dead when you’re playing with a busted hand
If no-limit is the way we’re gonna roll
Pay the toll, ‘cause I’m all-in

Now I’m old, got them eating out my hand
Dropping bits of gold, oversold
Playing in a band
It’s a circus, but the monkeys wanna fly
Who knows why?
It’s because of my sillyhead

I first found out when I was living in the womb
I heard the voices, heard the ticking bomb
Felt the boom
As I got older I was dying to fit in
That was the plan – I was killing it

Now I’m old, and I’m running with the bulls
Left the past like a bag of bones, fed it to the wolves
Final table but I leave it all behind, missed the blind
All because of my sillyhead
Track Name: Kill The Day
Well the rain soaks the ground leaving pools of remorse
Kill the day, kill the day
And it’s only your own shoes
left drenched-through, of course
Kill the day, kill the day

So you came with a plan
But it all went to shit
Now you can’t understand
Why the pose doesn’t fit

So you turned twenty four, let me show you the door
Your tomorrow’s now yesterday’s news

When the sun hits your back and the sweat starts to flow
Kill the day, kill the day
Will you puff out your chest for the truths you don’t know?
Kill the day, kill the day

Dreams never die, but they’ll stick in your throat
You can choke all the same
What remains are the scraps of another man’s meal

When the rain soaks the ground leaving pools of regret
Kill the day, kill the day
And the lessons to learn you’re still doomed to forget
Kill the day, kill the day

So you came with a plan
But it all went to shit
Now you can’t understand
Why these shoes never fit
Now you sleep in a home made of cardboard and bones
Can’t believe I still hear you say
Kill the day
