ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lyrics:
Track 1 - Fox and Me
The Fox has dreamy eyes with a brown-colored coat
I want to hold him close, but think that I’d expose my throat
I guess it happens when you lose sight of his furry tail
I’m staring at his teeth, they’re tinted red and sharp as Hell

Oh no…
Whoa no…
No no, no no no no
Oh no…

The Fox is laughing at my sense of self and decency
I want to kill him off, just cut him as he goes to sleep
But he won’t close his eyes, his piercing gaze is stabbing mine
As if he’s found my soul, his stare is like the killing kind

Oh no…
Whoa no…
No no, no no no no
Oh no…

Bury me, bury me like an adult.
Won’t you bury me, bury me like an adult?
Oh please bury me, bury me like an adult.
Yeah... yeah…


Track 2 - Green Bottle
I’ve got a great green bottle I keep inside
I stuck a daisy in it when you were mine
We drank the life right out it, and now it’s empty
Just like the hole in me, since you have left me

I don’t know what I’m doing, perhaps all break it.
I still don’t know what I’m doing, I should recycle it.
But still it looks real nice, upside my table top
I eat my dinners there, pretending you’re not gone

With my green bottle
I kept it just for you
It’s my green bottle, yeah.
The cap’s back on it, too.
It’s my green bottle.
I kept it just for you
It’s my green bottle.
The cap’s back on it, too.
Now I’m hooked.

My friend said to re-use it. I said that’s dirty.
The thing’s been dry so long, it’s probably dusty.
I’ll bet it smells real nasty, tastes like dead daisy dew
That flower’s been rotting in there, since I stopped loving you.

But still it looks real nice, upside my table top
I eat my dinners there, pretending you’re not gone

With my green bottle
I kept it just for you
It’s my green bottle, yeah.
The cap’s back on it, too.
It’s my green bottle.
I kept it just for you
It’s my green bottle.
The cap’s back on it, too.
Now I’m hooked.

This is pathetic,
This is pathetic,
It’s so pathetic
It’s true.


Track 3 - Until They're Bones
I will write you a book
One that you’d want to read
And I’ll throw in a night light so that you could better see
And when you start to feel tired
And your eyes close
You can wear my pajamas. You could sleep in my clothes.
And you won’t have to feel worried.
I will camp on the couch.
Unless you ask me to crawl in, cause otherwise, I’d stay out.
Just to know you can trust me.
You don’t want to be alone.
Hey, I don’t want to be either.
So, let’s give in, and build a home.

If you ever asked me to
I would settle next to you
Hammer down a picket fence
I’d help you clean out the basement
And we could turns cooking food
I’ll scrub the floor if you paint the wood
It’s all part of being grown
Let’s give in and build a home

I will buy you insurance
I will pay your premiums
And we’ll save cash to retire
And do all the things that we dreamed of
And when one of us dies
I’ll buy a plot where we’ll lie
A little place to be alone
Deep in the ground, we’ll call home.

If you ever asked me to
I would settle next to you
Hammer down a picket fence
I’d help you clean out the basement
And we could turns cooking food
I’ll scrub the floor if you paint the wood
It’s all part of being grown
Let’s give in and build a home

Holding hands until they’re bones, if you’re with me than it’s my home…
Holding hands until they’re bones, if you’re with me than it’s my home…


Track 4 - Best Goodbyes
On the dot
Each and every night
You know where you'll be when I call
Locked away in a bathroom stall
Our dry throats and sweaty hands
Turn up to 3 on your bedroom fan
The oceans can boil and the sun can die
Sweetheart we have the best goodbyes

Across space we sing to each other
Of our electronic hopes
And a thousand smiling I love yous
Don't equal one sincere I don't

Fake mannequin displays
Living in a self-deprecating haze
Believe me when I lie
And say that my favorite thing about you is your eyes
What am I supposed to do
When the root of my anger ain't you?
Understand my frustration
Yeah you know frustration, wait I don't think you do…

Parked beside the edge of the road
The engine idles but our bodies
They know just where to go
Kiss Kiss Kiss on the side of the mouth
As we get closer all the bad comes out
Insecurities and rotten lies
Sweetheart we have the best good byes

Across space we sing to each other
Of our electronic hopes
And a thousand smiling I love yous
Don't equal one sincere I don't

Fake mannequin displays
Living in a self-deprecating haze
Believe me when I lie
And say that my favorite thing about you is your eyes
What am I supposed to do
When the root of my anger ain't you?
Understand my frustration
Yeah you know frustration, wait I don't think you do…


Track 5 - Angry Personal
She said one night, she’d been thinking lately
She loved me so, that she’d have my baby
I’ll bet she said the same thing to you…

And we had fun, we were in love
I thought as much though, but it came undone
I’ll bet you think the same way too…

Don’t believe it, it’s not true
The impression that she’s leaving is a hollow pitted feeling
A feeling not worth keeping anymore

That darling girl made you believe
That I was some monstrosity
I hope she does the same thing to you

With an arsenal of embellished truths
And shoots you for another man
Throws your heart back in your hands

She just might do the same thing to you
And take the only life you knew
You’ll start from scratch when it’s all through
She’s a love that’s not worth keeping
And you’ll damn yourself for feeling
All the things she promised just for you
They are not there, they were not true
She doesn’t want your baby
She doesn’t want your baby
She doesn’t want your baby anymore

She said one night, she’d been thinking lately
She loved me so, that she’d have my baby
I’ll bet she said the same thing to you, too.


Track 6 - Waiting For You
You exhale as I breathe
We are like harmony
You must go, you must go
I will stay, I will stay, I will stay
So come home

I will be here waiting for you
To come home
I will be waiting for you

Please come home
I’ll be waiting for you
I’ll be waiting for you

I will dig the holes for you
In a garden where you dream of blooms
I will wind a pathway through so you can lose yourself
And exhume a state of steady calm
Peacefulness that you had known
Before the stormy weather for years
And when you feel like serenity’s extinct
Come home

I will be here waiting for you
to come home
I will be waiting for you


Track 7 - Locust
Locust in me
It makes it hard to breathe,
When you’re near me
It finds an empty place
With memories
That won’t be erased

It’s summer somewhere
Its sister’s flying through the
Bright, blue air
But it’s happy here
Where there’s lots to eat
I guess it thinks I am neat
(yeah, I’m neat…)

Take it easy on me…
(Take it easy on me)
Take it easy on me…
(Take it easy on me)
Take it easy on me
‘cuz I haven’t got much anymore

I want to get a life
I want a better job
Don’t want to live alone
The life of a slob
In this lonely place
With these bugs in me
I don’t know why they won’t leave
I kinda want to leave her

Summer’s such a lie
You’re with another guy
I know a monster with
A brown locust for eyes
The summer’s such a lie
You’re with a another guy
I know a monster with
A brown locust for eyes, oh no!


Track 8 - Home
Please know that it’s true
All of us are missing you
How did you break through
To be so bright, when the world was blue?

You have been our home
You have always been our home
You built our world
But you have left today

Please go, up into
A state of peace, and be renewed
Shine down, all that you
Have to give, the all of you

You have been our home
You have always been our home
You built our world
But you have left today
Ch-ch-ch change, everything's changing
I’m wearing black and you are here laying
I speak the words recalling your lifetime
Buried today, but not without sunshine beaming

But as you float away
Your toes are reaching through the clouds
Just to feel the world you leave now
I have never been so proud
And a part of you is staying down
A part of you is staying down
A part of you is staying down


Track 9 - Never Forget You
It’s a welcome wind that calling me away
From all the horrible things we said
When you add it all up between the good times and the bad
It might be better just to walk away…

From a person, from a feeling
From a sense of being
To a serenity
To an understanding of who I am
I didn’t need to be needy
When all I wanted was a sense of feeling
That kind of love could never complete me
Couldn’t keep you in my hands
I need to find it on the inside like I need to cast aside
The winds that guide me to your eyes and rediscover all the times
I was content to be alone and tend the world inside my home
I need to find some comfort of my own

On my own again, it’s just a time to reflect
On my own and looking back
See the places where I should have realized
Some time alone is not so bad

See the world around me
I can have it, too
Oh, I will make my own way
Though I will never forget you


Track 10 - Pick Me Up
Oh no, it’s here,
This plane is going down!
Christmas lights flash,
Rush to fake red ground.

Father, pick me up
And carry me home.
This place isn’t real,
And skeletons roam
Behind closed doors
That should stay shut.
Who thought of this place
And opened Hell up?

I put in my time,
I don’t see how this is fair.
Your cold eyes look black
While you just stare.
Grab my piece and jet,
Run up those stairs.
And for what it’s worth,
I’m glad I never cared.

Father, pick me up
And carry me home.
This place isn’t real,
And skeletons roam
Behind closed doors
That should stay shut.
Who thought of this place
And opened Hell up?
