Track Name: Lightspeed
He travels fast, too fast and he knows
All of friends tell him he needs to slow
If you lived in his head, maybe you’d understand
Why he does what he does, why he says what he says

Please come fast

He lives in a room, no a box, no a tomb
No, a place without walls under a full moon
He wrote time is a song, that you can’t sing too long
A refrain we could sing all damn day long

Please come fast

This place is just too beautiful for me
And I think I’d prefer to live at lightspeed
Track Name: Hoodwink
When I feel you come around, I know what you want
What I feel you come around, I know what you want
You want to keep keep talking about it, keep keep talking about it, yeah
You can’t keep keep walking around it, keep keep walking around it, yeah

You’ve done nothing to gain ground, and time is passing now
You’ve done nothing to gain ground, and time is passing now
Sit there and whine about it
Sit there and whine about it, yeah

Cause I feel when it comes around
Inside I know I will be let don’t
And I won’t let it come around, no I won’t
Track Name: Be Sure to Write
Now the dog days are over
I resign myself again
A listless conscious is tended
Move on til March’s end

Are you that ungrateful
To believe it could be better
I’ll be here through the winter
Be sure to write

You could hang all your pictures
And empty them
Into some contraption
Of a thought and steam

Please leave house and wonder
No places can
Hide in conscious devout to
Devour us whole
Track Name: Move
Move, she said
Its all over
Move, she said
Four leaf clover

Put on your sweater
The night is getting bitter
And I don’t want to wait for years
Thoughts are diggin’ now
How to do it how
I am just gonna wait right here

Its too soon she said
It doesn’t have to end now
Move she said
Hush why rush now

Stay here and listen
My minds wrapped in questions
The debt is weighing me down
Thoughts are coming now
What will change and how
And I too will wait here
