Track Name: An Episode
I’m the one in the crowd
And I’m changing history
For it defines the summer past
When you are young you can change
And you solve the murder mystery
And all awards become a weight
That you can’t bear

A shame device
There’s something I wanted to know
But you’re not around, and maybe I’m wrong
So Mr. Dupree listen up

You’re the one on the phone
But I want you next to me
For it reminds of Summers past
When you are young you can change
And then solve the murder mystery
When all awards become a weight
That you can bear

A shame device
There’s something I want you to know
But you’re not around, and maybe I’m wrong
Mr. Halvek Dupree listen up
You can change
But it might just be an episode
Track Name: O R P H A N S
I have learned a new word
It’s something I’ve said to you
But words are never enough
When they don’t mean a thing to you
It’s a home that I have built
With my name over the door
Turn the handle come on in
There’s room for more

But Mary won’t settle down
She’s never believed in you
Her words were never enough
When they don’t mean a thing to you
For the homes that I have built
Hang my name over the door
Turn the handle come on in
There’s room for more
Track Name: There is a Sound
There is a sound that separates
Something you learned when you were young
Bite your tongue

And when released, will you return
To that day we held you to your word
But not tonight

Because you’re not around when we fight
Hold the line

I run back to the familiar
Until the source becomes a sign of my home
But when you come back separate

Those things you learned when you were young
Bite your tongue
And hold back the flood

Words are a device
And I hope that I have listened well

Or maybe I won’t say them right
I hope you know we’re alright
Why don’t we leave?
Track Name: Slow Dancing
Please come fast we’re alone and he’s coming home
Turn the record over now we’re having fun
We were one for all and all for one

Remember all the times he’d listen in?
While you traveled ’round the town and back again
We were all skinned knees and bitten nails

Send your wives the code I am never done
Send it straight across the lines of telephones
“He is not a mystery anymore!”

Remember all the times he’d listen in?
While you traveled round the town and back again
We were just skinned knees and bitten nails
Track Name: The Afterlives
When I awake I’m five and swathed in broken light
I look around the room alone and terrified
A hundred ghosts directing me,
“Get up! Get up! We’re not alright.”

I’m not afraid of heights or death or anything
I’ll do the lion’s share of dares and still grow up
Until the haunters scream, “Come on, come on, give up!”
We will go on
We are the light

At twenty-one you turned to one most dangerous
Released the tiny able bodies from their jars
Until the lightning bugs and lamp posts flicker on
We own the light

But for the record we don’t have to bend to knee
Until the chairman says to you, “Give up! Give up!”
We may run around the world oblivious
Until we collide
We will get by
Track Name: Non-Fiction
Maybe we can meet again
Underneath the plum tree the ground is warm
We can hide from the town
And the night will be ours forever

Hold a meeting of the minds
I’ll listen for the sound of your lovely voice
In the Summer I’ll be ready to become
A man of non-fiction

But I know it can’t be written
Until I learn to write
And I don’t waste my time
Thinking about what could have been mine

Maybe when we’re older then
When we’ve both become successful business men
I promise I will write
If you don’t tell your wife

Old enough to be that kind of friend
When you were only ten you would understand more than I did
At that age
When the world is promising you love
And all that you deserve
My friend, we’re all we have
Track Name: Words in a Jar
When waiting for something
When waiting for words in a jar to come alive
You must get the word of your neighbors
If they should ever complain
Then say goodbye
And trade in your keys to the city
Take a Summer refrain from those in line

But you’ve never been back home
I know you’ve become (in spite of everyone)
A tame beast

I’m the harbinger’s favorite
I’m quiet and don’t cause a fuss
And idle ghost
Haunting the halls like a widow
Returning memory to light
Into the night

But I hold the keys to the country
If you should ever return
Let them know your name is keeping me up at night

You’re the ward of my future
You don’t have to repeat your concern
For the million ways I’m giving up all my time

I’m still waiting for something
I’ll try and I’ll never give up
’til you come home
Track Name: Bless This Mess
All for the parting wages that we will burn through
Run from the tawdry waitress that could not help you
Listen up, if I’m not holding you up

Torn from the dusty pages of some that want you
Learn from the dirty fuckers that swarm around you
Listen up
Track Name: Pareidolia
Hide yourself under the sound
Of the days of a girl in love
I know you are one

For the day, you better run, sister, run
Because the angels of Cedar Park
Know that you will shine under the guise
Of some worried wife

Tonight there is a meeting of minds
For the way that I learned your name
I know you will come

Know the weight / the height of the holy ghost
And follow me tonight
But I’ll never become
All that he would want
Under cover of night
I will lose him at last
Until the morning comes…

But child I miss your mother
And when they came for her I was not home
The war of best intentions,
although an accident, was never won
And all my little babies
Jump ship and run from me
And never once have I
Shared all I learned from that

Under the impression of
The two of you that were in love

Oh hide yourself under the sound
Of the days of a girl in love
I know you are one
Track Name: Weird Weather
Your foreign legs have seen better days
But they can keep you under the bed
Sediment, all alone

The memory forms a Fall-bitten day
The wind can take the strong medicine
Sediment, come on home

In spirit form

Everything is quiet again
We are now one-and-the-same
Sediment, you can go
