Track Name: his old nature
in a street full of sound, in a hall full of light
from a crack in the ground, in the endless deafening bright
in a gas station lot, in the grime and the gore
in a place we forgot, alone in a dream on the floor
in a half-baked nightmare, on a whim or a lark
or a highway to nowhere out west in the tumbling dark

he's been looking
for a place to start
to break old nature was always hard

and every day feels like the last one
and every day feels like the last one
and every day feels like the last one
it will be found
old nature will dig its way up from underground
no matter how far you bury it down

in my dead front lawn in the late afternoon
in a crumbling wall in the sky that you keep in your room
in an unfinished plane as the engines burn out
in the crease of a name in the terrified gape of my mouth
in a bundle of nerves in a hurricane eye
in a low humming stir that you hear when a heart rate climbs

what is it exactly that you're trying to find?
he's a too-close fly-by
he's interminably tongue-tied, but
he's gonna be all right

every day feels like it's the last one
every day feels like it's the last one
every day feels like it's the last one
i'll be around
old nature will dig its way up from underground
no matter how far you bury it down
Track Name: amscray!
(what is it exactly that you're trying to find?)

the only thing you've got is getting away
your head runs off today
already escaped

the only thing you've got is getting away
but you feel all right today
you let yourself escape
Track Name: let (1)
you're a mess!
you're angry, unreasonable, i know you wish you thought less
but i understand you can't and i know this isn't you
at your best
you are waiting for a signal that i don't think you'll ever quite get
justification for living with:

you have let your neurons rot
but i know that you still want
to spill that cacophony you've built in your brain
and when you make that choice
well, i will let your noise
live in my head until the end of the day
I won't let anyone know

are you all right?
did you wait for that sign in the sun, did you wait the whole night?
that the words that you float might reach who they need the most
just sometimes
oh, to shout from a mountaintop down onto anyone in sight
i was just on my way up there if you'd like to

hitch a ride
up though a curving line
you can stay up there for as long as you'd like
and then i'll drop you home
i'll get back later alone
call me and tell me if somehow our covers were blown
i won't let anyone know

and if you get found out or just can't keep it contained
you want to shout at the ceiling but got nothing to say
oh, the very first nagging gut reaction is to oughta fight back
but if you're in someone's pity when you're sitting around
caught dragging your feet all over the town
never let anyone tell you you're just like that

well let me offer advice for when it's late in the day
if you've ascended the mountain either to scream or to pray
you let it loose but in the morning it all bubbles right back
yeah if you're approached by a stranger at the end of your line
some suggestion is made the issue's all in your mind
never let anyone tell you you're just like that
don't let anyone know

(never let anyone, never let anyone, never let anyone)
tell you you're just like that
Track Name: a line falls on two lines
[ahahahahaaa]
Track Name: thanks
(you deserve, you deserve, you deserve, you deserve)

and i
i told a tale for you
i traced a line around my head
and i
i've been sleeping on nails for you
all tangled sheets on iron bed

and at night even the slightest twitch or tremor
needling my side 'till i'm awake
and when i'm trying to get to sleep i will remember
running through my mind and across the page

and my own head will trace what i am living
and somewhere in there you are muttering my name
i will express my thanks for all that you are giving
yelling with my voice too far away

given a nervous laundry list of bad decisions
i admit that i have made throughout my life
i'd say the fact that i can stand to still be grinning
qualifies me to now give out this advice:

if despite your best intentions you are only wreaking havoc
if your gaze is still unsteady and your concience is on loan
oh just hide your shaking hands and keep your head on automatic
and fight the million needle pressures, don't let anybody know

so with my breath held i am saying thank you
so in a hard sell i am saying thank you
as the ground shakes i am saying thank you
testing my heart rate i am saying thank you thank you

and with no feeling i am saying thank you
asleep on the ceiling i am saying thank you
like a nervous twitch i am repeating thank you
with a scratch that i won't itch i'm saying thank you thank you

and in a panic attack, well, i am saying thank you
and behind your back i am saying thank you
and with my fate sealed i am saying thank you
all this revealed i am still saying thank you, still saying thank you

and when i can't breathe i am saying thank you
and down on my knees i am saying thank you
when my head is racing i am saying thank you,
up all night pacing i am saying thank you

thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying
louder and louder and louder and louder
thank you, i am saying thank you, i am saying thank you, can you hear me?
louder and louder and louder and louder

can you hear me?
Track Name: suspenduous
suspend us from a mountain
hang us from the sky
and we'll be fine

how do you plan to get there
will you survive the voyage or the climb?
i hope you get there sometime

there is nothing you could say
to convince me that
it's not a sign
(that we're still alive)

every choice you make that's yours
is like screaming from a mountaintop to paradise
i hope you get there sometime

i hope you get there sometime
Track Name: six + six = seven
[find me]
Track Name: at the end of the day you're still fresh off the bus
what if you were the butterfly setting off hurricanes
be glad, be glad, be glad, that burden's not on you

who knows how much time you'll have in decades or days?
be glad, be glad, be glad, just make good use of it

at the end of every day the picture's still on the screen
be glad, be glad, be glad, take whatever you need

but i'm sure it's motion blur and nothing to see

i'm doing my best to not
flutter my chest to not
live in my head to not
fall off my bed at night
i'm doing my best to just
think about less to just
take what i see i'm just
trying to be polite

be glad, be glad, be glad, just make good use of it
Track Name: let (2)
all your highs
they comfort me
the breath you take
the way you speak
all your highs
they drive me down
my hands they shake
i smile and nod now

and on repeat, the greatest! and on repeat, your voice
and on repeat, the panic, and on repeat, the noise
and i'll never let my heart attacks be reason to stay still
i'll never give it space to breathe and i'll never let it spill

i'm a mess
and you're sorted out
your grin, your jokes
your lack of doubt
i'm a mess
and i'm terrified
of the bridges you burn,
the glint in your eyes

and on repeat, all restless, and on repeat, i'll love
and on repeat, can't help it, and on repeat, my pulse
and even though you make me sweat i'll never let you go
but most of all, i swear to god, i'll never let you know
Track Name: take care of yourself
what are you looking for
in a line that you've lost, through a panoramic shot?
what are you looking for
in a bundle of nerves
have you forgot?

what are you looking for
dragging your feet through the clouds, always loping around
what are you looking for
you might never find it, you know
will you ever come down?

if i knew what to tell you to help i would write it in capitals there on the wall
and you'd sleep through the whole night with every light on in the hall
if i had a clue what to do i'd erase every terror you're worried about
and i know you'd repay me if you ever figured out how

i've got enough on my mind that i don't have the time to care about as much as i'd like,
so if i'd ever wanted i'd easily leave you behind
but if i find you in the back of a car, cold and huddled, pretending to starve
i'll drive you back home from wherever we are

we all deserve one particular thing
a little respect, don't you think?
we all deserve at very least
a part that should always be
a little respect

(you deserve, you deserve)
just take care of yourself
Track Name: the mountain
on a carpet of grass under mountaintop sun
i'd appear in a flash, in a "what have we done"
in a spot that i'd found, through a line that i'd trace
let the heat simmer down, let the neon lights fade

under wind chimes for clouds in the great piercing blue
with my back on the ground and my head in a tune
up there let me make it, let my heart stop racing
thank you.
